Dahliana Naturals Overnight Fruit Lift crème* (review)

Last year I tried several very good creams, but I will only mention the best one. Dahliana Naturals Overnight Fruit Lift is much more than a cream. It’s a moisturizer, but at the same time a peeling and a mask. Its uniqueness lies in the excellent ingredients. It is made of fine, almost entirely natural ingredients, and many of them are organic. By using this product, the skin becomes lighter, brighter and fresher in a short period time.

 

Foreo Luna*

Since cleansing devices are expensive, you should think wisely which one to choose. One of them is Foreo Luna device with which you can hardly go wrong. With the T-Sonic™ (transdermal Sonic) method, cleans the face. Also, it has an anti-aging function. This is an excellent product that reborn my skin in short period of time – the skin became very bright, fresh and smooth. In addition, once charged, the device will stay charged for months! The fact that you do not need to carry a charger, as well as that it is very lightweight, makes it ideal for travels.

 

NIVEA In-Shower*

Body conditioners are a true revolution in body care. They are time savers, because you don’t have to wait that skin absorbs them. Because of the easy application, you will no longer have an excuse to skip the final stage in body care in the morning. My fave one is Cocoa & Milk, because of the scent. This is a great product for daily use and, if you don’t have very dry skin, In-Shower will provide you adequate hydration.

CHANEL N°5* (review)

I am very picky when it comes to fragrances. I like many, but there are only a few that I wear. This classic is one of them. Its characteristics are: purity, femininity, sexiness, sophistication.

 

GUERLAIN Terracotta Moisturising Bronzing Powder

It took me so long to try this product, but I finally bought it and was delighted with my purchase. :x It is finely milled, perfectly blends with skin… In a word, it is – perfect. It also smells wonderfully and I would love to own the bottle of that fragrance. :) I bought it here+.

 

Dior Diorskin Nude Tan Transat Edition Golden Shimmer Powder (review)

It looks fabulous and it does wonders. The look of this product is sufficient for it to be found on this list, but it also provide beautiful glow to the skin. Dior always has amazing limited collection products, and so it was last summer.

L’OCCITANE en Provence Iris Angelica Sublime Beauty Cream*

Blends beautifully into my skin, giving it a natural effect, but at the same time embellishing it. The skin becomes smooth and well hydrated. The shade I got is 01 Light (it should be noted that it is darker than what would be expected by its name).

 

Maybelline New York SuperStay Better Skin foundation* (review)

I was pleasantly surprised with some of Maybelline products. One of them is Superstay Better Skin foundation which is long-lasting and provides medium to strong coverage. It feels lightweight on the skin and, despite of the coverage, looks very natural.

 

Maybelline New York Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24h

Maybelline New York Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliners I used frequently in last months. I usually wore Brown, a beautiful brown shade that contains some bronze tones (I wore it here) and Intense Black, an intense black shade with matt finish (I wore it here). They have a good pigmentation and their soft texture glides on eyelids like melted pencils. They come with a brush that provide simple application.

Ultra Violet does not belong to this list. The shade is beautiful, but it’s not easy applicable. It takes a lot of effort for one decent line, which can be a problem, especially to beginners. Obviously there is a problem with the purple pigment, because it is not unusual that gel eyeliner in that color doesn’t work well.

I bought them here: Intense Black+, Brown+ and Ultra Violet+.

 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade Blonde & Large Synthetic Duo Brush #12

I’ve already mentioned how great both products are. Brush is really superb and with its two ends provides a great application, while Dipbrow Pomade is creamy, pigmented and long-lasting (I wore it here and here). A great combination. I bought them here+.

 

Rimmel New Moisture Renew Lipstick 700 Nude Delight

Ever since I bought it, I was very loyal to this lipstick. I wore it often. I must mention that it is not long-lasting at all. Its light texture will not last more than 2 hours, but it still amazed me. What I liked the most about it is the shade, which is one of those that suit my skin tone the best. Also, it has a wonderful, creamy texture that provides comfort and moisturizes the lips. In addition, the price is affordable, and I bought it here+.

PUPA Milano nail polishes (review)

Last year I discovered Pupa nail polishes and it’s such a shame that I didn’t know about them before. They are amazing! Their texture, brush, pigmentation, durability – all at a high level. They come in a small bottles which is a great thing, because makes them affordable. I tried nail polishes from Lasting Color Gel and Velvet Matt collections and was delighted with both. In particular, the shades that I tried are: 026 California Soul (Gel) and 005 Nude (Velvet Matt).

Eylure false lashes

The best of 2014: Eylure false lashesI have been wearing Eylure lashes for years. They are amazing and I usually buy the ones that look natural on eyes. In the last two posts (here and here), you could see me wearing N°035 Lengthening, and here I wore Girls Aloud Cheryl lashes. I bought them here: N°035+ and Cheryl+.

 

 

 

 

 

MAC Cosmetics

I tried many MAC products in 2014. They were not available in Croatia, so it was really hard to buy them. The great thing is that on January 23rd, 2015 MAC opened the store in Croatia. Finally! This time I will not feature specific products, but the groups of great products:

Lipsticks
I’ve tried 4 shades (Ravishing, Yash, Ruby Woo and Red). There are minor differences in quality due to the shade, but all are very good to excellent. What connects them is the quality of texture and very good staying power and pigmentation. I wore Ruby Woo here.

Blushes
Peaches and Frankly Scarlet both have a matt finish. Besides the shade, they differ in pigmentation. I prefer lighter pigmentation of Peaches. Peach shades are my favorite, so this was a big hit for me. I bought Frankly Scarlet because of the beautiful red shade that was missing in my collection. It looks beautiful on the cheeks, but be careful with this one due to the high pigmentation. I wore them here and here.

Pro Longwear Paint Pots
Paint Pots are eye colors, but they are much more than that. They can serve as an excellent base. These creamy products have incredible texture. They completely smoothen my eyelids and their staying power is amazing! I have Soft Ochre and Bare Study shades. I wore them here and here.

L’Oréal Paris i Douglas

The brands that pleasantly surprised me in 2014 are: L’Oréal Paris and Douglas.

L’Oréal has launched the perfect collection of lipsticks which confirmed the brands place among the best drugstore brands, but also showed that their quality is aligned with high-end products. I tried L’Extraordinaire by Color Riche lip colors* (review). They are combination of lipsticks, glosses and balms. I love them, but that is not L’Oreal’s collection of the year – the Color Riche Collection Exclusive Pure Reds* is. These lippies are long-lasting, highly pigmented, and have an amazing texture. :x

The best of 2014: Pure Reds

 

 

I usually go to the Douglas perfumeries to buy some high-end brands, so I was glad that last year I had the opportunity to try the products which they produce and the ones that they exclusively import. Many of them have high quality textures and effects, so they are worth of your attention. The products that I liked the most are: Seathalasso Deep Sea Salt Scrub*, Douglas SUN Self Tanning Milk*, Douglas Absolute Summer Affair 38 nail polish* and Baratti White musk shower gel*.

October 15, 2014 – Today, CHANEL premieres “The One That I Want,” a new campaign celebrating the iconic fragrance CHANEL N°5. The film is produced, conceived, and directed by auteur filmmaker Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby), with production design by Oscar-winner Catherine Martin, and features Supermodel Gisele Bündchen.

When Luhrmann directed the N°5 film starring Actress Nicole Kidman in 2004, he joined a prestigious line of directors who have collaborated with CHANEL – from Ridley Scott and Luc Besson to Kathryn Bigelow and Martin Scorsese.

Ten years ago, N°5 was the fragrance of a woman who decided to break free from it all and then return to reality, renouncing her desire. Today, through Luhrmann’s eyes, we see the N°5 woman deciding to listen to her heart. She is a modern woman who knows exactly who she is and is free to make her own choices. The film tells the story of a woman who struggles to find space for everything – herself, family, career, and love.

“The CHANEL woman can be with herself on a beach, can be with her child, can have an aspirational and fulfilling work life, and at the same time she can have a true relationship; she can have romance,” says Luhrmann. “And in the end, the CHANEL woman chooses love.”

Like the N°5 women who have gone before her – Marilyn Monroe, Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet and Nicole Kidman – Bündchen is emblematic of her time. Model, actress, mother, philanthropist, and businesswoman, she is one of the most dynamic women of the decade.

Luhrmann’s strong connection to the world of music, so evident in his feature films, is reflected in his choice of Lo-Fang’s cover of “You’re the One That I Want.” With no words or dialogue in the film, the music is not an accompaniment; it is its backbone.

CHANEL N°5, the world’s most famous fragrance, was created in 1921 when Coco Chanel asked the great perfumer, Ernest Beaux, to create a fragrance that reflected her vision of modern femininity. N°5 was her lucky number and it was the fifth submission presented to Mademoiselle Chanel, thus a legend was born with the name CHANEL N°5.


#TheOneThatIWant

Gisele Bündchen; CHANEL N°5 #TheOneThatIWant

 

I adore this fragrance. :x It goes fantastically with my skin and literally becomes part of it. Smells like purity, which is mixed with floral notes of jasmine and rose. When striking notes are gone, at the bottom remains powdery trail. As such, the scent retains on the skin for a long time.

A very feminine fragrance that is both powerful and gentle. Seductive in a very sophisticated way.

I have already informed you that CHANEL unveiled a new fragrance & beauty concept at Martimex, Zagreb (post). My fellow bloggers and me visited this place on Thursday.

That was an intimate gathering that included four bloggers, CHANEL’s Press Manager and staff of the perfumery. Delightful gathering consisted of testing the scents, the decorative and preparative cosmetics, and all of that was accompanied with a lot of talk, laughter and photographing. We had a really wonderful time. :)

 

About the concept

In this exclusive setting, interwoven with gold and beige hues, the olfactive bar stands out. Utilizing an innovative ceramic blotter system, the table houses the 54 fragrance concentrates encompassing the entire range of CHANEL perfumery. With the help of fragrance experts, you have a chance to find out which perfume is right for you.

A real treat of the place is LES EXCLUSIFS DE CHANEL. The collection consists of 14 fragrances which latest addition is “1932”. It pays homage to the first diamond jewelry collection created by Mademoiselle Chanel in 1932.

Makeup and skincare corner is tempting, as well. As when choosing a fragrance, professionals are also helpful when choosing the right cosmetic products.

 

Be sure to visit this magical place. I plan to stop by again. :)

As you can see from the pictures, I received some Rouge Bunny Rouge products for reviewing purposes. I will start with mini samples, so this post will be more dedicated to swatches than to detailed reviews.

Bronzing Glow Liquid – As If It Were Summer Still…

I love this liquid bronzer! I’d love to have it in a full size bottle. It has wonderful texture and beautiful scent. The formula is easy-to-apply, lightweight and non-greasy.

It provides a beautiful glow and a bit of tan. Can be used for face and body, but I got just a small sample, so I used it on my face primarily. Also, I tried it on arms and it gave them a nice sheen. I’d like to try it on my legs and, hopefully, would achieve that celebrity glow.

Highlighting Liquid – Seas Of Illumination

These highly pigmented products fulfill their task – they give a beautiful glow to the skin. They have the same texture and scent as the bronzer and have easy-to-apply and lightweight formula.

Their beauty can be best described with the pictures…

Fragrant Confections Collection – Incantation

When RBR package arrived it had such a nice scent, because Incantation perfume was applied on blotter. However, when I applied the perfume on the skin its green-citrus sharpness surprised me. But it quickly softened and began to develop into a pleasant scent. Very mystical, dark, special. I love it. :)

Top notes: Citrus Accord, Blackcurrants, Fig Leaf, Green Tea
Heart notes: Rose, Orange Blossom, Coriander, Cardamom
Base notes: Vetiver, Cedarwood, Beeswax, Musk
