Vichy Teint Ideal Fluid za normalnu i mešovitu kožu - nijansa 25 Sand


Kada je Vichy izbacio novu liniju pudera, veoma sam bila zainteresovana i radovala sam se ovim puderima. Na promociji ove linije (o njoj sam pisala ovde) dobila sam upravo ono što sam i najviše želela da probam, a to je tečni puder za normalnu i mešovitu kožu. Kao što vidite na slici došao je u promotivnom pakovanju u kom su bile 4 čokoladice u nijansama u kojima puder dolazi. Nijansa 25 koju sam dobila je druga po redu. Pored ovog fluid pudera, postoji i malo gušći i hranljiviji puder za normalnu i suvlju kožu, mada i on nije mnogo masan, kako sam ja pročitala u raznim recenzijama.


When Vichy launched a new line of foundations and powders, I very interested and couldn't wait to try these products. After the promotion of this new line (I wrote about it here) I got exactly what I most wanted to try, and that's a foundation for normal and mixed skin. As you can see in the picture it came in a promotional packaging in which they were 4 chocolates in shades that these foundations can be found. Shade 25 that I got is the second one. In addition to this fluid foundation, there is a little thicker and more nourishing foundation for normal and dry skin, although it also isn't very greasy, as I read in various reviews.


Ovaj puder dolazi u kartonskoj kutiji, a unutra je prelepa staklena bočica sa pumpicom, koja vrlo dobro dozira ovaj puder. Bočica sadrži 30ml. Cena ovog pudera je 2303 dinara. Za početak evo ga sastav:


This foundation comes in a cardboard box, and inside is a beautiful glass bottle with a pump, which makes dosing very good. The bottle contains 30ml. The price of this foundation is 2303 RSD. For starters here are the ingredients:


Kao što vidite alkohol je prilično visoko na listi sastojaka, a sam puder i miriše malo alkoholno. Meni lično ovaj puder nije uopšte isušivao lice niti izazvao neke probleme na koži, tipa bubuljice i slično. Sadrži SPF 20 što mi se mnogo sviđa. Ovaj puder obećava 14h prekrivanje i na meni puder je skoro ispunio ovo. Prekrivna moć mu malo opadne ali on izdrži na mom licu preko 12h sati. Takođe nije oksidirao i promenio boju u tom periodu.


As you can see, alcohol is quite high on the ingredient list, and the foundation itself smells a little like alcohol. Personally, this foundation didn't dry out my skin or cause any problems like pimples and such. It contains SPF 20 which I really like. They are promising 14h coverage and I must say that in my case this foundation almost fulfilled this. The coverage diminishes a  little with time, but it still stays on my face over 12h hours. It also didn't oxidize or change colour during this period.


Puder ima srednje prekrivanje, može se naneti i prilično lagano ali i nadograditi do malo jačeg srednjeg prekrivanja. Biće idealan za osobe koje nemaju mnogo problematičnu kožu. Prelepo ujednačava ten. Jako je lagan i ni malo se ne oseća na licu. U početku sam se bojala da mi nijansa neće odgovarati, jer su nijanse fluida malo narandžaste, ali pošto se ovaj puder savršeno blenda i stapa sa kožom (što ćete videti i na ruci na swatch-evima) ovaj puder na meni odlično izgleda. Iskreno ni sa jednim puderom u životu nisam bolje izgledala. Ova blago narandžasta nijansa čini da moje lice izgleda jako zdravo i osunčano, daje mi neki blistav ten i svežinu. Već prvi put kada sam ga stavila ljudi su ga primetili. Mada nijansa je takva da fluid generalno ne bih preporučila osobama sa hladnijim podtonom, jer će im svakako biti previše narandžast.


Foundation has a medium coverage, and can be applied quite lightly but also upgrade to a bit heavier medium coverage. It will be ideal for people who don't have a very problematic skin. It evens out the skin tone beautifully. It is very light and you won't feel it on your face at all. At first I was afraid that this shade won't be good for me because all of the fluid shades are a bit orange, but since this foundation blends perfectly with the skin (as you will see on the swatches on my hand) this foundation looks great on me. Honestly I haven't looked better with any foundation in my life. This slightly orange shade makes my face look very healthy and glowing, it gives me a radiant complexion and freshness. Even the first time I put it on people noticed it. Although the shade is such that I generally wouldn't recommend it to people with cooler undertones, because it will certainly be too orange for them.


Sa ovim puderom vrlo sporo prosijam, izdrži i preko 5h na mom licu, a ako ga fiksiram nečim u prahu i mnogo duže. Ako imate neki suvlji deo na licu, malo će se lepiti za te delove, pa oko toga treba paziti i lepo hidrirati kožu. Potpuno fenomenalno prekriva proširene pore, kada ga nanesem one kao da nestanu. To me je možda i najviše oduševilo. Pore na i oko nosa se jednostavno izgube. Mada treba paziti ako imate masnu kožu i raditi dobar piling lica, jer ako vam se napune pore npr. na nosu, ovaj puder se za tu masnoću malo zalepi i zna da je i naglasi. Tako se barem meni čini da se kod mene dešava.


With this foundation I get oily quit slowly, after maybe 5h, and if I fix it with something powdery I holds even more. If you have a drier parts of the face, it will stick to these parts, so be careful and hydrated your skin well. It has totally awesome pore coverage, when you apply it they just disappear. This is perhaps the most beautiful thing of all. The pores on and around the nose are simply lost. Although care should be taken if you have oily skin and you should do a good facial scrub regularly, because if pores on you nose for example fill up this foundation will stick to that and even make them more visible. At least it does that in my case.


Puder traje 12 meseci nakon otvaranja,a pošto koristim samo ovaj puder od kad ga imam mislim da ću ga potrošiti i mnogo pre ovog roka. Za celo lice i vrat dovoljna mi je jedna pumpica. Ja ga razmazujem prstima jer na taj način dobijam najlepši i najprirodniji izgled. Prekrivanje je na ovaj način malo slabije. Sam puder je vrlo tečan i ali se i prilično brzo suši, a nakon razmazivanja brzo će biti fiksiran. I dalje se čudim svaki dan kad ga nanesem kako zdravo i lepo izgledam sa njim. Postao je moj HG puder vrlo lako iako ipak ima nekoliko mana. Za kraj pogledajte swatch. Kao što vidite boja je prilično narandžasta. Na drugoj i trećoj slici puder sam razmazala malo, pa malo više i na kraju na poslednjoj slici skroz ga izblendala i razmazala. Pogledajte kako se stopio sa mojom bojom, na samom dnu poslednje slike možete da vidite moju boju kože bez pudera i kako ovaj puder polako prelazi i stapa se sa kožom. Naravno podsećam da je podlaktica svetlija od lica, pa je ova nijansa na mom licu još bolja.


Powder is good for 12 months after the opening, and since I only use this foundation since I got it I think I'll spend it long before this deadline. For the entire face and neck, one pump is enough. I'm applying it with my fingers because that way I get the most beautiful and most natural look. Coverage is a bit smaller this way though. It is very liquid but also dries quickly, and after applying it, it will soon be fixed. I'm still amazed every day when I apply it, how healthy and beautiful I look with it. It became the my HG foundation very easily although it does have a few flaws. In the end, look at the swatch. You can see the colour is quite orange. The second and third picture are with a little and a little bit more smeared foundation. The last picture shows it completely blended. See how it blends with my skin colour at the very bottom of the last picture, where you can see the colour of my skin without foundation and than this foundation that slowly starts getting more intense. Of course I remind you that the forearm is lighter than skin on the face, so this shade looks even better on my face.


Zar nije neverovatno? Još je realno na podlakticu naneseno daleko više pudera od potrebnog za tu površinu. Ova kapljica je možda malo manja od jedne pumpice, koju ja koristim za celo lice i vrat. Da li ste vi probali ovaj puder i kako vam se svideo? Da li je neko probao kompaktni puder pošto bih i njega probala?

Šta mi se sviđa kod ovog pudera:
- pakovanje,
- prelepo se blenda i stapa sa kožom,
- srednje prekrivanje,
- jako je lagan,
- hipoalergen,
- ne sadrži parabene,
- SPF 20,
- ne oksidira,
- dugo stoji na licu,
- dugo izdrži bez prosijavanja,
- odlično pokriva proširene pore.

Šta mi se ne sviđa:
- nijanse nisu baš za svakoga, prilično su narandžaste,
- cena,
- lepi se za suve delove,
- ako su pore pune dodatno ih naglasi.

Isn't it amazing? To be realistic I applied to the forearm much more foundation than the size of that area required. This drop may be a little smaller than the amount I use for my whole face and neck. Have you tried this foundation and how do you like it? Has anyone tried the compact powder as I would like to try it, too?

What I like about this foundation:
- Packaging,
- It blends well with the skin, 
- Medium coverage,
- It is very light, 
- Hypoallergenic,
- Doesn't contain parabens, 
- SPF 20, 
- Doesn't oxidize, 
- Good durability, 
- I stay matte long with it, 
- Excellently covers pores. 

What I don't like: 
- Shades are not for everyone since they are pretty orange, 
- Price, 
- Sticks to the dry parts,
- If the pores are filled it enhances them.

Penhaligon's parfemi stižu u Metropoliten parfimeriju


Ovaj brend parfema dolazi nam iz Velike britanije. Brend je osnovao William Penhaligon, a prvi parfem koji je napravio bio je Hammam Bouquet i to 1872. godine. Inspiracija za ovaj parfem bile su arome turskih kupatila. Promocija ovih parfema održala se 28.3.2014. u parfimeriji Metropoliten, a deo velikog asortimana Penhaligon's parfema biće dostupan u ovoj parfimeriji. 


This brand of perfumes comes from the United Kingdom. The brand was founded by William Penhaligon, and the first perfume that was made ​​was Hammam Bouquet in 1872. The inspiration for this perfume  was the fragrance of the Turkish baths. Promotion of these perfumes was held on 28.3.2014. in Metropoliten perfumery, and a part of the big range of Penhaligon's perfumes will be available in the perfumery.


Dizajn bočica parfema je vrlo retro i dosledan je tradiciji i istoriji koju brend ima, ali naravno svaka bočica ima neki moderan detalj koji prenosi taj stari dizajn u današnjicu. Uz mašne, cilindre, čaj i duh Velike Britanije isprobavala sam parfeme i tražila svoje favorite.


Perfume bottle design is very retro and is consistent with the tradition and history of the brand, but of course, each bottle has a stylish accessory that carries the old design to the present. With bows, cylinders, tea and spirit of the United Kingdom I was trying out perfumes and sought my favorites.



Jedan od favorita među ženskim parfemima bio je Ellenisia, parfem kreiran 2004. godine. Parfem je slatkast, voćkasto cvetni. Gornje note ovog parfema su kora mandarine i list ljubičice, srednje gardenija, ruža, tuberoza i jasmin, dok su donje note nektar i vanila.


One of my favorites among women's perfumes was Ellenisia, perfume created in 2004. The perfume is sweet, floral and fruity. Top notes of this fragrance are mandarin zest and violet leaf, medium are gardenia, rose, tuberose and jasmine, while the base notes are nectar and vanilla.


Ja jako volim i muške parfeme i iskreno često ih i nosim. Među njima favorit mi je bio Sartorial inspirisan krojačkim radnjama. U njemu su note mahovine hrasta, tonke pasulja i lavande spojene sa efektima šume, ozona, metala, kože, cveta ljubičice, meda i začina.


I really love men's perfumes and honestly and I wear them often. Among them my favorite was Sartorial inspired by tailoring shops. It includes notes of oakmoss, tonka bean and lavender combined with the effects of woods, ozone, metal, leather, violet flower, honey and spices.



Još jedan prelep ženski parfem Gardenia, spoj tuberoze, jasmina, gardenije, ylang-ylanga, začina i vanile. Napravljen je još 1976. a zatim je ponovo uveden u prodaju 2009. godine.


Another beautiful feminine perfume is Gardenia, blend of tuberose, jasmine, gardenia, ylang-ylang, spices and vanilla. It was made in 1976. and then re-introduced in 2009.


Izbor parfema je svakako prilično veliki, a kako biste videli da li je neki baš pravi izbor za vas, posetite Metropoliten parfimeriju i isprobajte i na svojoj koži.


The choice of perfumes is certainly quite large, and if you want to see whether one of them is just right for you, go to the Metropolitan perfumery and try them on your skin.


Za kraj me zanima kakve parfeme preferirate? Slatkaste, citrusne, začinske, drvenaste? Ja padam na slatke voćkaste ali i na opore, začinske i orijentalne parfeme, a u  Penhaligon's parfemima sam našla nekoliko vrlo primamljivih primeraka.


In the end, I want to know what kind of perfumes do you prefer? Sweet, citrusy, spicy, woody? I'm a sucker for sweet fruity ones but also bitter, spicy and oriental perfumes. In Penhaligon's perfumes I found some very attractive pieces.

Sleek True Colour Lipstick - Barely There 776


U mojoj poslednjoj narudžbini sa Sleek sajta rešila sam da konačno probam i neki njihov ruž za usne. Iskreno jedva sam se odlučila za nijansu jer je izbor zaista dobar. Na kraju sam rešila da to bude jedna nude boja koja je veoma hvaljena, a to je nijansa 776 Barely There. Ova nijansa spada u Sheen kategoriju. Moja procena je da je to kategorija kremastih i sjajnih ruževa, koji na usnama izgledaju sjajno, kao da su malo vlažni. Kroz sebe nema nikakve šljokice već je boja potpuno ujednačena. Za početak evo ga sastav:


In my last Sleek order I decided to finally try one of their lipsticks. Honestly, it was very hard to decide which shade to order because the selection is really good. In the end I decided to buy a nude colour that is very praised and that's shade 776 Barely There. The shade falls within the Sheen category. My assessment is that this category contains creamy and glossy lipsticks, which look great on the lips, as if they were a little wet. There is no glitter or shimmer in it through, and the colour is completely uniform. For starters here are the ingredients:


Ruž dolazi u kartonskoj kutiji u kojoj se nalazi plastično pakovanje ruža. Plastika je peskirana, kao i kod ostalih Sleek ambalaža. Na prvi pogled, a malo i na dodir, podseća kao da je gumena. Vrlo se lepo i čvrsto zatvara, što mi se sviđa. Sam ruž je prilično malenih dimenzija, što nisam očekivala. Inače sadrži 3.5g a cena mu je 7.49 $. Naravno imajte u vidu da ćete poštarinu dodatno platiti još možda oko 3$. Ovi ruževi inače dolaze u čak 20 nijansi.


Lipstick comes in a cardboard box in which is the plastic packaging. Plastic is sandblasted, the same as other Sleek packagings. At first glance, and a little to the touch, it feels rubbery. Very nice and tightly closes, which I like.The lipstick is quite small in size, which I didn't expect. Otherwise, it contains 3.5g and its price is 7.49$. Of course, keep in mind that you'll also have to pay extra postage of maybe about 3$. These lipsticks come in as many as 20 shades.


Boja ovog ruža je topla boja mesa, blago vuče na neke koralne nijanse. Generalno bih je najpre svrstala u "my lips but better" nijansu. Izdržljivost na usnama je srednja, do oko 3 sata, što je i očekivano s obzirom da se radi o kremastom ružu.  


The colour of this lipstick is a worm skin colour, gently pulling on some coral shades. Overall I would firstly classify it as "my lips but better" shade. Durability on the lips is medium, up to about 3 hours, which was expected since it is a creamy lipstick.


Ne lepi se za suve delove, mada je za ujednačenu boju potrebno naneti deblji sloj kako bi se izbeglo malo uvlačenje u borice usana. Ili, što ja najviše volim da radim, nakon nanošenja da se četkicom ili prstom umasira u usne i lepo razmaže. Na taj način mu se malo i produži trajanje na usnama. Svakako se homogeno briše, a i boja je prilično neutralna pa nije potrebno stalno paziti kako usne izgledaju.


It doesn't stick to dry parts, although for a uniform colour you'll need a thicker layer in order to avoid accumulation in small lip wrinkles. Or, as I prefer to do, after applying it use a brush or a finger and massage it into the lips to nicely smear it. In this way, you'll also extend the duration of the lips. It erases homogeneously, and the colour is quite neutral so there is no need to constantly check how your lips look.


Za kraj pogledajte swatch na ruci i usnama, naravno na suncu i u hladu.


In the end, look at the swatch on my hand and lips, of course in the sun and in the shade.



Ja sam iskreno jako zadovoljna ovim ružom i od kad ga imam jako često ga nosim. Možda nije baš najlakši za nanošenje, ali ne zadaje ni mnogo problema. Da li ste vi probali neki Sleek ruž i kakvi su bili vaši utisci? Imate li neku drugu nijansu da mi preporučite?

Šta mi se sviđa kod ovog ruža:
- cena,
- pakovanje,
- ugodan na usnama,
- homogeno se briše,
- ne lepi se za suve delove.

Šta mi se ne sviđa:
- dostupnost,
- malo teže se skroz homogeno nanosi,
- malo ulazi u borice.

I'm honestly very happy with this lipstick and since I have it wear it  very often. Perhaps it is not the easiest to apply, but it also won't give you a lot of trouble. Have you tried any of the Sleek lipsticks and what were your impressions? Do you have any other shade that you recommend?

What I like about this lipstick:
- Price,
- Packaging,
- Pleasant on the lips,
- Erases homogeneously,
- Doesn't stick to the dry parts.

What I don't like:
- Availability,
- A little more difficult to completely homogeneously apply,
- It accumulates a little in the wrinkles.

Balea Nature noćna krema



U poslednje vreme trudim s da kupujem što prirodnije kremice pa me je ova Baleina krema baš zainteresovala kada sam je videla na polici u DM-u. Čini mi se da je ova linija malo novija, nisam je ranije viđala. Postoje dnevna i noćna krema, a ja sam kupila noćnu kako mi je ona u tom trenutku bila potrebna.


Lately I try to buy more natural products so this Balea cream really made me interested when I saw it on the shelf in the DM store. It seems to me that this line is quite new, since I haven't seen this cream before. This line contains day and night cream, but I only bought the one for the night, since I only needed that one at that moment.


Krema dolazi u kartonskoj kutiji, a unutra je tubica, koja čini aplikaciju higijenskom, a i doziranje je vrlo lako. Poklopac se lepo zatvara. Tuba sadrži 50ml kreme, a cena joj je 339 dinara. Krema sadrži ulje iz semena organskog brokolija iz Italije (koje je bogato nezasićenim masnim kiselinama), a 95% sastojaka su joj prirodnog porekla. Ne sadrži silikone, parabene, mineralna ulja i boje. Namenjena je svim tipovima kože. Evo ga i sastav:


The cream comes in a cardboard box, and inside is a tube, which makes the application hygienic, and dosing very easy. The lid closes nice and tight. Tube contains 50ml of cream, a the price is 339 RSD. The cream contains oil from the seeds of organic broccoli from Italy (which is rich in unsaturated fatty acids), and 95% of ingredients are of natural origin. It contains no silicones, parabens, mineral oils and colours. It is designed for all skin types. Here are the ingredients:


Krema je zaista vrlo lagana. Jako se lako razmazuje i brzo upija, a na koži ne ostavlja film, niti je masna. Skoro kao da mažete dnevnu kremu. S druge strane zaista lepo hidrira i hrani kožu. Meni se čini da bi možda bila malo slaba za izrazito suvu kožu, ali kako to zaključujem samo na osnovu lagane teksture, moguće je i da grešim. Ipak je moja koža mešovita. Krema ima blag i prijatan voćkast miris. Ne mogu da odredim na šta tačno miriše, mada ja svakako ne bih rekla da miriše na brokoli. 


The cream is really very light. Very easy to apply, is quickly absorbed and leaves no film on the skin, nor is it greasy. Almost as if you were applying a day cream. On the other hand it really nicely moisturizes and nourishes the skin. It seems to me that it might be a little weak for very dry skin, but since I'm concluding this only on the basis of light texture, it is possible that I'm wrong. After all, my skin is mixed and not dry. The cream has a mild and pleasant fruity fragrance. I cannot determine exactly what it smells like, but I certainly wouldn't say it smells like broccoli.


Kremu sam kupila i sestri, koja baš ne voli teške noćne kreme i ona je isto oduševljena. Nosila ju je i preko dana i lice joj nije ubrzano prosijalo, a isto ima mešovitu kožu koja se lako zasija, kao i ja. Ja sam prezadovoljna ovom kremom, mogu čak reći da mi je jedna od dražih noćnih krema koju sam probala. Svakako sigurno kupujem i dnevnu kremu u nadi da će mi se i ona jednako svideti. Samo da potrošim kremu koju trenutno koristim. Za kraj pogledajte kakvu teksturu ima krema:


I bought the cream to my sister too, since she really doesn't like heavy night creams and she also likes it a lot. She also applied it during the day, and her face didn't get oily any faster than usual, and she also has mixed skin, just like me. I am very happy with this cream, I can even say that is one of my favorite ones out of all the night cream I've tried so far. I'll be sure to buy the day cream too, in the hope that I'll like it as much as this one. I just have to spend the cream I'm using at the moment. In the end, take a look at this creams texture:


Da li ste vi primetili ovu liniju Baleinih krema? Da li ste nešto probali iz ove linije i kakvi su bili vaši utisci?

Šta mi se sviđa kod ove kreme:
- cena,
- pakovanje,
- miris,
- nije masna,
- lepo hidrira,
- brzo se upija,
- ne ostavlja film na koži.

Šta mi se ne sviđa:
- čini mi se da je malo slaba za izrazito suvu kožu.

Omiljeno ove zime



Došlo nam je prolece! Oni koji imaju sreće sada su na planini i skijaju na posledjem snegu, a mi koji to ne možemo barem uživamo u suncu i lepom vremenu. Meni je ovu zimu, iako je bila blaga, obeležilo nekoliko dana skijanja koje sam srećom imala. Pa samim tim i proizvodi kojima sam se najčešće vraćala bili su proizvodi koji hrane kožu, a od šminke to je najčešće bilo nešto sa SPF-om, nude boje i brza i prirodna šminka.


The spring is here! Those who are fortunate are now on the mountain skiing on the last snow of the year, and those who can't do this are at least enjoying the sun and warm weather. For me this winter, even though it was very mild, was marked by few days of skiing that I fortunately had. And thus the products to which I have most frequently been returning were products for nourishing the skin, products with SPF, nude colours and fast and natural makeup.


Za početak izdvajam Kinesku nude paletu od 120 boja koja mi se jako sviđa, podjednako kao i šarena o kojoj sam pisala ovde. I ova paleta ima mnogo senki dobre pigmentacije, koje se ne krune.


To begin with I want to single out the Chinese 120 eyeshadow nude palette that I really like, just as mush I like the colorful version I wrote about here. This palette has many shades of good pigmentation, which don't crumble.


Zatim tu je Missha Perfect Cover BB krema u nijansi 23, koja ima dobar SPF i koju sam rado mazala da mi ujednači ten i štiti od sunca. O njoj sam pisala ovde. Ne mogu da verujem da mi i dalje traje, a baš je dugo imam. Dobila sam je na blogu Missundaztood's Fragrance and Makeup Blog. Takođe volela sam i Golden Rose City Style maskaru koja daje veoma prirodan izgled trepavica. Njena recenzija je ovde.


Then there is the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in shade 23, which has a good SPF and I gladly used it even out my complexion and protect against sun. I wrote about it here. I cannot believe I still have it, since I own it for quite a long time. I got it on the Missundaztood's Fragrance and Makeup Blog. I also loved Golden Rose City Style mascara that makes a very natural looking eyelashes. Its review is here.


Od šminke kao što ćete videti preovlađuju prirodne nijanse. Mnogo sam volela Essence kremasto rumenilo u nijansi 030 Miss Peach, koje sam dobila od Taye sa bloga My Little Beauty World. Daje mnogo lep prirodan izgled licu a namažem ga za tri sekunde. Zatim tu je Sleek ruž o kom ću uskoro pisati u nijansi Barely There, kao i Flormar Deluxe Cashmere Lipstick Stylo DC36 koji već dugo obožavam i o kom sam pisala ovde.


As far as make-up goes nude shades are the most numerous, as you will see. I liked Essence Cream blush in 030 Miss Peach, which I got from Taya from My Little Beauty World blog. It gives a very nice natural looking face and I apply it in three seconds. Then there's Sleek lipstick in shade Barely There, about which I'll write soon. Also Flormar Deluxe Cashmere Lipstick Stilo DC36 which I like for a long time and that I wrote about here.


Potpuno savršena kombinacija senki koju u poslednje vreme stalno koristim i koje su mi bile omiljene ove zime su Aura Divine Eyes 61 Sun Kiss, 63 Snakeskin i 64 Cafe Au Lait. Inače post sa svim senkama iz ove linije je ovde. Ove tri senke su prelepe, pigmentovane, lepo se blendaju i ne krune se. Milina! Takođe tu je i jedan mali uljez Manhattan mono senka 101G Made of Steel, koja me baš podseća na zimu. Boja je između bele, sive i srebrne. Dobila sam je na blogu Zipa This.


Completely perfect combination of eye shadows that I've been using a lot lately and that were my favorite this winter are Aura Divine Eyes 61 Sun Kiss, 63 Snakeskin and 64 Cafe Au Lait. The post with all the shadows from this line is here. These eye shadows are gorgeous, pigmented, blend nicely, and don't crumble. Heaven! Also there is a small intruder Manhattan mono eyeshadow 101G Made of Steel, which just reminds me of the winter. The coulor is somewhere between white, gray and silver. I got it on the Zipa This blog.


I za kraj tri vrlo vredna dodatka preparativi u toku ove zime. Blistex MedPlus balzama za usne o kom sam pisala ovde. Omiljeni balzam za ekstremnije uslove. Savršen. Zatim dva proizvoda za noćnu negu koje sam rotirala. Balea Nature noćna krema koja me je oduševila jer je lagana i nemasna a dobro hidrira. Pišem o njoj uskoro obavezno! I Avon Planet Spa Heavenly Hydration ulje za lice koje tako dobro hrani kožu. Koža je ujutru jako mekana i elastična, prosto sam oduševljena. Isto pišem više uskoro!

I to bi bilo to! Šta ste vi voleli ove zime?


In the end, three very valuable additions to cosmetics during this winter. Blistex MedPlus lip balm which I've written about here. Favorite lip balm for extreme conditions. Perfect. Then two products for night care that I rotated. Balea Nature night cream, which I was delighted  about because it is light and non-greasy and hydrates well. I'll write about it soon for sure! Avon Planet Spa Heavenly Hydration facial oil that nourishes the skin so well. In the morning my skin is very soft and elastic, I'm just thrilled. I'll also write more soon! 

And that's it! What did you like this winter?

Epilacija u No+Vello salonu - 1. deo - o epilaciji, salonu i mom iskustvu


Moram da priznam da sam često pomišljala da odem na fotoepilaciju, međutim to nisam do sad realizovala. Onda su me kontaktirali iz No+Vello salona radi saradnje, tako da se sve na kraju nekako skockalo i ja sam konačno probala fotoepilaciju! 


I must admit that I have often thought of doing photoepilation, but I didn't do it until now. Then I was contacted from No+Vello salon, so in the end I end up doing photoepilation!


No+Vello saloni postoje širom sveta i to preko 1000 salona u različitim zemljama. Od nedavno su i u Srbiji, a viđala sam da sarađuju i sa blogerima iz okruženja. Ovi saloni veoma drže do kvaliteta i ugodnosti usluga koje pružaju, što sam i sama mogla da se uverim odlaskom u salon. Salon u kom sam ja bila nalazi se preko puta Beogradske Arene i to na adresi Bulevar Arsenija Čarnojevića 64 lok. 26. Firma koja je kod nas zapravo master franšizant za brend No+Vello je firma Plus Esthetic i ovo je njihov salon (moram da napomenem da postoji i franšiza salon u Svetogorskoj).


No+Vello salons exist all over the world and there are over 1000 salons in different countries. They came to Serbia recently, and I've also seen them collaborate with bloggers from the region. These salons find quality and comfort of the services they provide very important, as I could see when I got to the salon. The place where I did my photoepilation is located across the street from the Belgrade Arena at Bulevar Arsenija Čarnojevića 64 local 26. A company that is actually master franchisee for the brand No+Vello in Serbia is  Plus Esthetic and this is their salon (I have to say that there is one franchise salon in Svetogorska street, too).


Kao što vidite po slikama, salon je veoma sređen, čist i jako prijatan. Salon nudi usluge fotoepilacije, ali i fotopodmlađivanja kože, čišćenja kože, tretmana akni ili rozacee. Naravno sve detalje možete pogledati na njihovoj web stranici. Ja ću reći malo više o fotoepilaciji kako je to tretman koji sam probala.


As you can see in the pictures, salon is very nice, clean and very pleasant. Salon offers epilation, and skin rejuvenation, skin cleansing, acne or rosacea treatments. Of course, all the details can be viewed on their website. I will say a little more about epilation as that is the treatment I have tried.


Kao prvo ovaj salon je specifičan po tome što kod njih sve zone na telu koje mogu da se epiliraju imaju istu cenu po sesiji - 3500 dinara. Fotoepilacija je uklanjanje dlaka pomoću svetla, a postoje dve vrste tretmana: metoda rada pulsirajućim svetlom visokog intenziteta (IPL) i laserom. IPL tehnologija je jeftinija, bezbolnija i može se koristiti kod većine tipova kože i boje dlačica. To je upravo i tip fotoepilacije koji se radi u No+Vello salonima. 


Firstly, a characteristic of this salon is that all areas of the body that can be epilated have the same cost per session - 3500 RSD. Epilation is hair removal with light, and there are two types of treatment: methods of high-intensity pulsating light (IPL) and lasers. IPL technology is less expensive, less painful, and can be used on most skin types and hair colours. And that is exactly the type of photoepilation which is done in the No+Vello salons.


Melanin u dlačicama upija svetlost i prenosi je do korena gde se ćelije koje hrane dlačice zbog toplote uništavaju. Eliminacijom ovih ćelija, dlačice odumiru i polako odpadaju u periodu od prve do treće nedelje nakon sesije. Nakon ovog perioda nove dlačice koje do tad nisu uništene će porasti i zato je potrebno ponoviti tretman nekoliko puta (4-8 puta u zavisnosti od fototipa kože, svojstva dlake, zone, pola, starosti i hormona) da bi smo se potpuno rešili dlačica u nekoj regiji. Nakon svake sesije razmak do sledeće posete salonu se produžava. 


Melanin in the hair absorbs the light and transfers it to the roots where the cells that feed the hair are destroyed by the heat. Elimination of these cells makes hair die and fall off slowly over a period of one to three weeks after the session. After this period, new hair that hadn't so far been destroyed will grow and therefore it is necessary to repeat the treatment several times (4-8 times depending on skin phototype, hair characteristics, zone, sex, age and hormones) in order to completely remove the hair in a region. After each session, the period to the next salon visit is prolonged.


Jedino što još moram da napomenem je da postoje slučajevi kada fotoepilaciju ne treba raditi, a to su:
- trudnoća i dojenje,
- fotosenzibilni lekovi,
- kožne bolesti ili rak kože,
- oslabljen imunološki sistem,
- psihički poremećaji,
- poremećaj zgrušavanja krvi,
- fotodermatoza.

Kada sam došla u salon prvo su mi postavili dosta pitanja, da bi se utvrdilo da li mogu da radim fotoepilaciju. To se sve zapisuje u vaš karton koji dobijate kada prvi put dođete u njihov salon. Zatim se radi mali test da bi se potvrdilo da nemate neke loše reakcije na tretman i kako bi se utvrdila jačina svetlosti koja vama odgovara. Test se radi barem dan ranije. Svaka sesija koju budete radili upisuje se u vaš karton.


I also have to say that there are cases when photoepilation shouln'd be done, such as: 
- Pregnancy and breast-feeding,
- Photosensitive drugs,
- Skin disorders, or cancers of the skin,
- Weakened immune system,
- Mental disorders,
- Blood clotting disorder,
- Photodermatoses.

When I first came into the salon I was asked a lot of questions to determine whether they can do photoepilation on me. It's all written in your file that you get when you first arrive at their salon. Then they do a small test to confirm that you won't have a bad reaction to the treatment and to determine the light intensity that suits you. The test is done at least a day before. Every treatment you do will be written in your file.


U toku tretmana obavezno je nošenje naočara koje štite od svetlosti koju apart proizvodi. Tretirana regija hladi se ledom pre i u toku tretmana. Pre početka tretmana regija se obeležava specijalnom kredom kojom se takođe za svaki slučaj prekrivaju i najmanji mladeži ili flekice na koži. Sam tretman traje baš kratko. Ja sam rešila da radim pazuhe i sve je bilo gotovo već za 10-15 minuta. Prilikom svakog pulsa svetlosti oseti se peckanje. Jačina varira u zavisnosti od količine dlaka i regije o kojoj se radi. Moje iskustvo je da je peckanje srednje jačine, ponegde malo jače, ali je generalno bol daleko on neizdrživog. Svaka osoba koja se depilirala moći će i ovo lako da podnese iako je sam osećaj ipak drugačiji. 


In the course of treatment it is required to wear goggles to protect against light produced by the machine. Treated region is cooled with ice before and during the treatment. Before starting the treatment the region is marks with a special chalk with which they also cover even the smallest mole or skin with different pigmentation. The treatment itself is very short. I decided to do armpits and it was all over in about 10-15 minutes. With each pulse of light you will feel a burning sensation. The volume varies depending on the amount of hair you got, and the region in question. My experience is that it is a moderate burning sensation, sometimes a little stronger, but it is generally far from unbearable pain. Any person who was ever waxed will easily endure this, although the feeling is different, though.


No+Vello proizvodi i različite kreme za lice i telo, koje se mogu kupiti i koristiti nakon tretmana, kako bi se negovala koža i postigli najbolji rezultati. Bez obzira da li koristite njihove kreme ili bilo koje druge, nakon tretmana potrebno je mazati neku hidratantnu kremu na tu regiju 2 puta dnevno prva četiri dana, a zatim još nekoliko dana jednom dnevno. Takođe ako epilirate pazuh, 3 dana ne bi trebalo da koristite dezodoranse koji sadrže alkohol.

U ovom postu želela sam da vas malo upoznam sa samim salonom, time šta je fotoepilacija i kako teče sam tretman. Takođe planiram da kada prođe dovoljno vremena napišem i nastavak i kažem vam kakvo je stanje sa mojim dlačicama nakon prvog tretmana i koliko se njihov broj smanjio. Stay tuned... :)

Da li ste se vi nekada epilirali i da li biste to uradili?


No+Vello produces various creams for face and body, which can be purchased and used after the treatment, in order to nurture the skin and achieve the best results. Regardless of whether you use their creams or any other after the treatment it is necessary to moisturizer the region two times a day the first four days, and then once a day for a few days. Also if epilating the underarms, you shouldn't use deodorants that contain alcohol for three days.

In this post I wanted to introduce you to the salon, with what is photoepilation and the treatment itself. I also plan to write another post after enough time has passed, to tell you the situation with my hair after the first treatment and how much did they reduce in number. Stay tuned ... :)

Did you ever photoepilate and would you ever do it?

Promocija novog La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+]


Kao veoma veliki ljubitelj stare verzije kreme La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo, ovo je bila promocija koju sam sa radošću isčekivala. Na kraju sam i dočekala lansiranje nove poboljšane formule ove kreme i u Srbiji. A promocija je održana 20.3.2014. u hotelu Zira. Zvanica je bilo baš mnogo, a sama promocija je imala dozu luksuza, ali s obzirom na temu i dozu ozbiljnosti.


As a big fan of the old version of La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo cream, this was a promotion which I gladly awaited. In the end, the launch of the new improved formula of this cream in Serbia finally came. It was held on 20.3.2014. at Zira hotel. There were a lot of guests, and the promotion itself has had a dose of luxury, but considering the subject also amount of seriousness.


Na početku smo čuli dva predavanja, oba na temu nepravilnosti na koži i problema koje akne izazivaju kod osoba koje imaju problema sa njima. Prvo predavanje obuhvatalo je psihološki aspekt ovog problema, i to kako stres utiče na pogoršanje bubuljica, ali i sam stres i probleme koje bubuljice izazivaju kod osoba koje se sa njima bore. Iz tog predavanja morala sam da izdvojim ovu rečenicu sa kojom je predavanje počelo i koja se nalazi na slici iznad.
Zatim smo čuli predavanju o medicinskoj strani priče, gde se govorilo o vrstama akni, kao i raznim vrstama lekova i krema kojima se one leče.


Firstly we heard two lectures, both on skin irregularities and problems that acne cause in people who have these problems. First lecture included the psychological aspect of the problem, and how stress affects pimples. We also heard about stress and problems that acne cause in people who are struggling with them. I had to single out the sentence with which the first lecture began and which is in the picture above. 
Then we heard a lecture on medical side of the story, where we heard more about the types of acne, as well as about various types of drugs and creams which are used to treat them.


Na kraju je došlo i najbitnije, prezentacija nove kreme zbog koje smo svi i došli.  La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] krema ima 6 delovanja:
1. Keratolitičko delovanje - LHA kiselina
2. Protivupalno - Niacinamid
3. Protivupalno i anti-pigmentacijsko - Procerad
4. Anti-bakterijsko - Piroctone Olamine
5. Regulacija keratinocita - Linoleična kiselina
6. Regulacija sebuma - Cink PCA


In the end there, and most importantly, we heard the presentation of the new cream which we all came for.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] cream has 6 action: 
1. Keratolytic action - LHA acid 
2. Anti-inflamatory - Niacinamide 
3. Anti-inflammatory and anti-pigmentation - Procerad 
4. Anti-bacterial - Piroctone Olamine 
5. Regulation of keratinocyte - Linoleic acid 
6. Regulation of sebum - Zinc PCA


Ono što je novo kod ove kreme je Procerad koji spečava pojavu flekica koje nastaju nakon bubuljuca. Procerad brže smanjuje upalu ali i smanjuje proizvodnju melanina prouzrokovanu bubuljicom i na taj način ublažava proizvodnju flekica koje se pojavljuju nakon upalnog procesa.


What is new in this cream is Procerad which stops dark spots which appear after a pimple. Procerad quickly reduces inflammation and reduces melanin production caused by the spots and thus eases the production of darker skin which appears upon inflammatory processes.


La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] je fotostabilan i može se nanositi i ujutru i uveče. Za razliku od stare verzije kreme koja je bila gelasta, beličasta, ali ipak prilično providna, nova krema je bele boje i više podseća na laganu kremu ili gel kremu. Ali o samoj kremi ću svakako detaljnije pisati kada je isprobam. Preporučena cena ostala je ista kao i do sad 1392 dinara. 


La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] is photostable and can be applied in the morning and evening. Unlike older version of the cream that was gelatinous, whitish, but still a bit transparent, the new cream is white and resembles a light cream or a gel cream. I'll certainly write more details about it when I test it out. Recommended price remained the same which is 1392 RSD.



Nakon održane promocije tu je bilo i posluženje koje je izgledalo fenomenalno.


After the promotion there was also a lot of catering which looked and tasted awesome.


Dobila sam i poklončić, a to je upravo La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] krema, ali i Effaclar gel za umivanje, kom sam se jednako obradovala jer sam jako želela da ga probam, a to nisam stigla do sad da učinim.


I've gotten a gift, which is the new La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] cream, but also Effaclar Foaming Gel, which I was just as happy to get because I really wanted to try it, but didn't get to it until now.


Da li ste vi možda već probali novi La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] ili možda tek planirate da to uradite?


Did you perhaps already try the new La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] or are you planning to?

Bourjois Bronzing Powder 52



Došli su nam topliji i sunčani dani, i uskoro ćemo svi razmišljati o suncu i moru. Zato sam rešila da vam danas prenesem utiske o Bourjois čokoladnom bronzeru koji nam može da ti taj lepi osunčani izgled i danas kada sunce još nije s nama dovoljno dugo da bismo bili preplanuli. Moram da kažem da mi je ovaj komad šminke veoma drag i ima posebno mesto u mom neseseru, pošto sam ga dobila na poklon od čitateljke, koja ga je dobila i nije ga koristila. Dugo sam ga želela, i kada sam ga na kraju i dobila još mi je bio miliji, nego da sam ga sama kupovala.


Warm and sunny days are here, and soon we'll all be thinking about the sun and the sea. So I decided to tell you my impressions of Bourjois chocolate bronzer that can give you the beautiful sun kissed look even today when the sun is still not with us long enough for us to be tanned. I must say that this piece of makeup is very nice and has a special place in my makeup bag since I got it as a gift from a reader, that had it and didn't use it. I have long wanted it, and when I finally got it, I was even happier, than if I bought it myself.


Nijansa bronzera je 52, ali koliko znam kod nas i postoji samo jedna nijansa. Kutija je kartonska, ali veoma čvrsta i lepa, zatvara se na magnet. Unutra je u metalnoj posudici velika količina bronzera, čak 16.5g, u obliku kockica čokolade. Posebna čar ovog bronzera je naravno njegov savršen i veoma realan miris čokolade! Košta 1679 dinara.


The shade of the bronzer is 52, but as far as I know there's only one shade available here. The box is cardboard, but very solid and beautiful, closes with a magnet. Inside is a metal pot with large amount of bronzer, 16.5g, in the form of chocolate. The special charm of this bronzer is of course its perfect and very realistic smell of chocolate! It costs 1679 RSD.



Evo ga i sastav:

And here are the ingredients:


Nijansa bronzera je prilično svetla, pa  mi se čini da bi bio dobar za sve devojke od svetlog do srednje tamnog tena, dok bi kod tamnijeg tena bio možda nedovoljno vidljiv. Bronzer je izrazito toplog podtona, pa nije baš pogodan da se koristi samo za konturiranje, posebno ako ste hladnijeg podtona. Ako ste toplog podtona, mislim da će vam biti dobar i za konturiranje. Boja mu je prelepa jer ne vuče na neku neprirodno narandžastu boju, već će vašoj koži dati poprilično prirodnu osunčanu boju. Kroz sebe sadrži malo svetlucavih čestica, koje će koži dati odsjaj koji zaista koža i ima kada je preplanula. Nije mnogo svetlucav, pa da izgleda neprirodno i veštački.


The shade of the bronzer is pretty light, so I think that it would be good for all girls from light to medium dark complexion, while for darker complexion it perhaps wouldn't be sufficiently visible. Bronzer has very warm undertone, so it isn't very suitable for contouring, especially if you have cooler undertones. If you have warm undertone, I think it will be good for contouring, too. Colour is beautiful because it isn't that unnatural orange one, but it will give your skin a pretty natural tanned look. It contains little sparkly particles, which will give the skin a reflection which the skin has when tanned. Not very shiny, and it doesn't look unnatural and fake.


Sam bronzer je malo tvrđi pa se neće desiti da četkicom zahvatite previše i napravite blatnjavo lice. Jedno pakovanje trajaće vam zato jako dugo. S druge strane pigmentacija mu je dobra pa je boja prilično nadogradiva. Lak je za nanošenje i ako niste previše vešti. Lepo se i blenda. Izdržljiv je na licu, meni stoji skoro ceo dan, mada to naravno zavisi od dana i toga šta imam na licu, vremenskih uslova i koliko sam aktivna u toku dana.


Bronzer is a little harder so you won't pick up too much with a brush and make a muddy face. One packaging will last you so very long. On the other hand, it has good pigmentation and colour is quite buildable. It is easy to apply even if you're not too skilled. It also blends well. Durability is good, I stays almost all day on my case, but of course that depends on the day and what I have on my face, the weather and how active I am during the day.



Bronzer je odličan i za lice i za dekolte, ako želite da postignete osunčan izgled i volite miris čokolade, koji je veoma izražen. Pogledajte sada kako izgleda na koži, jače nanesen i izblendan.


Bronzer is great for face and chest, if you want to achieve sunny look and like the smell of chocolate, which is very strong. Look at how it looks on the skin, applied heavier and blended.


Da li ste vi probali ovaj bronzer i kako vam se svideo? Koji bronzer vi volite da koristite?

Šta mi se svidelo kod ovog bronzera:
- pakovanje,
- miris,
- tekstura,
- daje vrlo prirodan osunčan izgled koži,
- lepo se blenda,
- izdržljivost.

Šta mi se nije svidelo:
- cena,
- samo jedna nijansa,
- previše je žut za konturiranje.


Have you tried this bronzer and how do you like it? What bronzers do you like to use?

What I like about this bronzer:
- Packaging,
- Smell,
- Texture,
- Gives a very natural tanned look,  
- Nicely blends,
- Durability.

What I didn't like:
- Price,
- Only one shade,
- It's too yellow for contouring.
