Blic utisci - Avon Nutra Effects Hydration & Anew Vitale, Victoria Beauty Snail Extract & Cannabis Day Cream, Vichy Normaderm BB Clear


Testeri su odličan način da dobijemo prvi utisak o proizvodu, vidimo kako se ponaša na našoj koži i na kraju donesemo odluku da li da proizvod kupimo ili ne. Svi smo drugačiji, i dok ne probamo nikada ne možemo da znamo da li će nam neki proizvod odgovarati. U poslednje vreme isprobala sam nekoliko testera pa sam želela da vam prenesem moje kratke utiske, koji će vam možda pomoći da nastavite da razmišljate o kupovini ili da pak od neke kreme odustanete.


Testers are a great way to get a first impression of a product, to see how it behaves on our skin and in the end decide whether to buy the product or not. We are all different, and until we try a product, we can never know whether it is going to be good for us. Lately I tried several testers, so I wanted to tell you my brief impressions, which may help you to keep thinking of buying some of them, or help you decide not to.


Avon Anew Vitale Day Cream SPF 25

Ova krema predivno miriše, voćkasto, na jagode. Tekstura kreme je lagana, ali kako sadrži SPF 25 nakon nanošenja koža ostaje srednje sjajna, pa će se krema više svideti osobama sa normalnom i suvljom kožom. Lepo hidrira i prijatna je na koži. Puna cena joj je 1370 dinara (u trenutnom katalogu 890 dinara).


This cream smells wonderful, fruity, like strawberries. The texture of the cream is light, but since it contains SPF 25 after the application the skin remains a bit shiny, so the cream is more suited for people with normal and a bit dryer skin. Nicely hydrates and pleasant on the skin. Full price is 1370 RSD (in the current catalogue it is 890 RSD).


Avon Nutra Effects Hydration Daily Cream SPF 15

Krema srednje gustine, ali nije masna. Nakon nanošenja lice se blago sjaji zbog SPF-a koji krema sadrži. Krema skoro da nema miris, brzo se upija i dobra je podloga za šminku. Ne sadrži parabene i boje i pogodna je i za osetljivu kožu. Cena kreme je 950 dinara (u trenutnom katalogu 569 dinara).


The cream of medium density, but not greasy. After application the face is slightly shiny because of the SPF inside the cream. The cream has almost no scent, is absorbed quickly and is a good makeup base. It doesn't contain parabens and colours and it's suitable for sensitive skin. The price of the cream is 950 RSD (current price is 569 RSD).


Victoria Beauty Cannabis Ultra Hydrating Day Cream with Rejuvenating Complex

Krema ima blag miris, koji mi se ne sviđa. Miriše na sapune koji nemaju u sebi nikakav dodatni miris. U svakom slučaju miris se ne sadržava nakon nanošenja, pa to i nije toliko bitno. Krema je prilično gusta, ali nije masna. Teksturom podseća me na kreme za masnu kožu koje imaju sastojke za upijanje sebuma, iako ova krema uopšte nije takva, već je namenjena suvoj koži. Kada se nanese nije sjajna i čak i moja masnija koža ne izgleda loše nakon nanošenja. Dobra je podloga za šminku, i nije ubrzala prosijavanje mojih masnih delova lica. Ostavlja film na koži koji sprečava isušivanje, mada se sam film ne oseća. Odlična za zimske dane i suvu kožu, a mogu je koristiti i masnokošci. Cena 600 dinara.


The cream has a slight sent, which I do not like. It smells like soaps that have no added fragrance. In any case the scent doesn't remain after application, so this is not so important. The cream is quite thick but not greasy. Texture reminds me of the cream for oily skin that have ingredients which absorb sebum, although this cream is not one of these, but is intended for dry skin. When applied it is not greasy and even my oily skin does not look bad after application. It is a good makeup base, and it didn't accelerate the sebum production on my oily parts of the face. It leaves a film on the skin which prevents drying out, although the film itself I do not feel. Excellent for winter days and dry skin, but can also be used by people with oily skin. The price is 600 RSD.


Victoria Beauty Cream Concentrate Snail Extract Day & Night

Srednje gusta krema, prilično masna, sporije se upija. Nakon upijanja koža ostaje blago sjajna ali na vrlo lep i zdrav način. Veoma je prijatna na koži. Ima lep blag miris koji podseća na stare kreme. Krema dobra za sve tipove kože osim možda za masnokošce, ali kako je ovo univerzalna krema mogu je koristiti kao noćnu kremu. Obe Victoria Beauty kreme mogu se kupiti u DM-u kao i preko Kozmetika Teatar weshopa. Cena 850 dinara.


Medium thick cream, pretty greasy, slowly absorbed. After application the skin remains slightly shiny but in a very beautiful and healthy way. Very pleasant on the skin. It has a nice mild scent reminiscent of old creams. The cream is good for all skin types, except perhaps for oily, but this is a universal cream so they can use it as a night cream. Both Victoria Beauty creams can be bought in DM as well as over Kozmetika Teatar weshop. The price is 850 RSD.


Vichy Normaderm BB Clear Unifying Corrective Cream SPF 16 - Medium Shade

Nova BB krema namenjena problematičnoj koži. Dolazi u dve nijanse, a ja sam probala tamniju, koja mi savršeno odgovara. Ima blag prelep cvetni miris, srednje je gustine i prekrivanja. Lako se razmazuje i brzo setuje nakon nanošenja. Lice je sa njom mat i matirano je skoro celog dana, a sebum se manje luči. Smiruje crvenilo i ne izaziva nove bubuljice. Čini mi se da je ovo najbolja BB krema koju sam ikada probala. Nije za osobe kojima treba jače prekrivanje, ali svi masnokošci sa blago problematičnom kožom, kao što sam ja, će je obožavati. Proizvod koji se mora nabaviti u velikom pakovanju i koji će se, čini mi se, vrlo brzo naći u HG proizvodima. Krema se može kupiti u Lilly drogerijama i apotekama. Krema košta 1857 dinara (u Srbotrade apoteci koja je najjeftinija).

Da li ste probali neku od ovih krema i kakvi su bili vaši utisci?


The new BB cream is intended for problematic skin. It comes in two shades, and I tried the darker one, which fits me perfectly. It has a mild beautiful floral fragrance, medium density and coverage. Spreads easily and quickly sets after application. The face looks matte and stays that way almost the entire day, and less sebum is produced. It soothes redness and does not cause new pimples. It seems to me that this is the best BB cream I've ever tried. Not for those who need more coverage, but all people with oily skin which is just slightly problematic, like mine, will love it. A product that must be purchased in full size packaging and which will, it seems to me, very quickly find itself on my HG list. Cream can be purchased in Lilly drugstores and pharmacies. The cream costs 1857 RSD (in Srbotrade pharmacy which is the cheapest).

Have you tried any of these creams and what were your impressions?

Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE - Day Cream & Eye Cream


Hladni zimski dani iziskuju više nege, čak i ako ste masnokožac kao ja. Isto tako zimski dani nisu vreme kada treba da se prekine sa SPF zaštitom, posebno ako idete na planinu. U ovom postu ću vam pisati o kremama koje trenutno koristim i volim, Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE - dnevna krema i krema za regiju oka. 

Linija AQUAporin ACTIVE je posebna zbog toga što za razliku od većine hidratantnih krema koje rade po principu sprečavanja gubitka vode iz kože, ova Eucerinova linija obnavlja prirodne prenosnike vode u koži - akvaporine. Sadrži gliko-glicerol koji povećava broj akvaporna u koži, tako da ova linija pored sprečavanja gubitka vode, pospešuje i njen prenos u samoj koži. Sve kreme su testirane i na osetljivoj koži i ne sadrže parfeme i parabene.


Cold winter days require more care, even if you have oily skin like me. Also winter is not the time to stop using SPF protection, especially if you're are going to the mountain. In this post I will write about creams that I currently use and love, Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE - day cream and eye cream.

AQUAporin ACTIVE product line is special because unlike most moisturizing creams that work on the principle of preventing water loss from the skin, Eucerin restores natural transporters of water in the skin - aquaporins. It contains gluco-glycerol, which increases the number of aquaporins in the skin, so next to preventng water loss, it also improves water transfer inside the skin. All creams are tested on sensitive skin and do not contain perfumes and parabens.


Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE Revitalisierende Augenpflege


Ova okoloočna krema je u mnogo čemu posebna. Dolazi u kartonskoj kutiji u kojoj je tubica od 15ml, a cena joj je 1475 dinara (1198 dinara u Srbotrade apoteci). Zanimljivo je što ima obli aplikator koji je hladan i prilikom nanošenja masira područje oka i na taj način ubrzava cirkulaciju i smanjuje nadutost. Takođe krema bi trebalo da ima uticaj i na tamne kolutove. Krema sadrži i ženšen, koji takođe osvežava.


This undereye cream is in many ways special. It comes in a cardboard box in which is a tube of 15ml, and the price is 1475 RSD (1198 RSD in Srbotrade pharmacy). It has an interesting round applicator which is cold and massages the area of the eye during application, thereby accelerating blood circulation and reducing puffiness. Also the cream should have an influence on dark circles. This cream also contains ginseng, which refreshes.


Krema nema nikakav miris i blago je žućkaste boje. Ono što je takože zanimljivo, je tekstura kreme. Ovo je ubedljivo najređa krema koju sam do sad koristila. Veoma je tečna, skoro kao neko belo retko mleko za lice ili gušći tonik. Aplikacija uz masažu aplikatorom je zaista veoma prijatna i osvežavajuća, a posebno je dobra ujutru jer hladni aplikator razbuđuje, a čini mi se i ubrzava smanjivanje jutarnje nadutosti.


The cream has no scent and it is slightly yellowish in colour. What is also interesting is the texture of the cream. This is by far the rarest cream that I've ever used. It is very liquid, almost like a rare white face milk, or some kind of dense toner. Application with a massage applicator is really very pleasant and refreshing, particularly in the morning because the cold applicator awakens and accelerates the reduction of morning puffiness.


Nisam primetila neki veliki efekat na tamne kolutove, mada efekat u principu postoji, pošto ova krema odlično hidrira regiju oka i pored toga što je veoma retka, pa mi cela regija deluje svežije i lepo. Ipak moram napomenuti da mi koža u ovoj regiji nije suva, ni zahtevna.


I did not notice a big impact on dark circles, although in principle there is an effect, since this cream moisturizes the region of the eye well even though it is very rare, so the whole region looks fresh and beautiful. Still,  I must mention that my skin in this region is not dry, nor demanding.



Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE Fur Alle Hauttypen


Ova dnevna krema namenjena je svim tipovima kože i sarži prilično visok SPF 25, što je prilično visoko za običnu dnevnu kremu. Takođe ne sadrži parabene i parfeme i sarži gliko-glicerol koji obnavlja akvaporine i pospešuje hidriranost kože. Dolazi u standarnoj plastičnoj teglici od 50ml i košta 1925 dinara (1529 dinara u Srbotrade apoteci).


This day cream is designed for all skin types and contains a fairly high SPF 25, which is quite high for a regular day cream. It also doesn't contain parabens and perfumes and contains gluco-glycerol which renews aquaporines in the skin and and increases hydration of the skin. It comes in a standard plastic jar of 50ml and costs 1925 RSD (1529 RSD in Srbotrade pharmacy).


Krema nema miris i bele je boje. Tekstura joj je veoma zanimljiva. Krema deluje vrlo gusto i pod prstima je malo čvršća, međutim prilikom mazanja na lice primećuje se da je i pored toga nekako vodenkasta i nije ni najmanje masna. Prvi put mi se desilo da mažem kremu za lice sa SPF-om i da ona na koži nije sjajna i teška. Presijavam se sasvim malo a čak se i to smanji kada se krema za par minuta upije. Konačno krema sa SPF-om sa kojom se mi masnokošci nećemo sjajiti i neće nam se začepiti pore.


The cream is odorless and white in colour. The texture of the cream is very interesting. It seems very thick and a bit firm under the fingers, however when applying it on the face you'll notice that in spite of this, it's kind of watery and not at all greasy. This is the first time that I'm using a face cream with SPF without it being shiny and heavy on my skin. I'm shiny just a tiny bit and even that is reduced when the cream is fully absorbed in a few minutes. Finally a moisturizing cream with SPF which even us with oily skin can use without shine or our pores being clogged.


Kremu koristim već dugo i ni jednom mi nije izazvala neke probleme na licu. Kada se nanese, ne postoji osećaj filma na koži. Krema je vrlo lagana. Ipak hidrira odlično, i zaista mislim da će odgovarati vlasnicima svih tipova kože.


I have used it for a long time and it's never caused any problems on my face. When applied, there is no feeling of the film on the skin. The cream is very light. However it hydrates very well, and I really think that it will suit all skin types.


Za kraj pogledajte teksture obe kreme. Sa leve strane je krema za lice, dok je desno okoloočna krema.


In the end, look at the texture of both creams. On the left side you can see the face cream, while on the right you'll find the under-eye cream.


Da li ste probali Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE liniju proizvoda i da li su i vaši utisci dobri kao i moji?

Freeman Diamond Mineral Rinse Mask


Svi koji me prate mogli su da primete da gajim veliku ljubav prema Freeman maskama. Poslednja koja se pojavila na policama DM drogerija je Freeman Diamond Mineral Rinse Mask, kremasta maska sa glinom, dijamantskim prahom i ekstraktima voća, za popravljanje tena, piling i svežinu kože.


All my followers could probably notice that I love Freeman masks a lot. Last mast that appeared on the shelves of DM drugstores is Freeman Diamond Mineral Rinse Mask. It's a creamy clay mask with diamond powder and fruit extracts, for correcting complexion, skin scrubbing and freshness.


Dolazi u velikoj tubi od 175ml i košta 619 dinara. Naravno kao i sve Freeman maske postoji i malo pakovanje u kesici, ali se ono ne može naći u DM-u, već se ove male maske mogu naručiti preko Kozmetika Teatar web sajta. Maska je namenjena svim tipovima kože i sadrži kaolin, prah dijamanata, ekstrakte kokosa, đumbira, banane, papaje, maline i još nekih biljaka. Miriše na borovnice, prelepo i sočno.


It comes in a large tube of 175 ml and costs 619 RSD. Of course, as all Freeman masks there is a small packaging too, but it cannot be found in DM, only on Kozmetika Teatar website. The mask is intended for all skin types and contains kaolin, diamond powder, extracts of coconut, ginger, banana, papaya, raspberry and some other plants. It smells like blueberries, beautiful and juicy.


Nakon nanošenja treba da stoji na licu 5-7 minuta, a zatim se blagim kružnim pokretima utrljava u kožu. Ja prvo pokvasim ruke i zatim vlažnim rukama utrljavam masku. Utrljavanje se radi zbog praha dijamanata koji vrše piling. Piling je srednje jačine, i mislim da neće smetati ni osobama sa osetljivom kožom, mada vlasnice ovakve kože neka pristupe trljanju sa oprezom. Iako je ova maska na glinenoj osnovi, nije mi isušila kožu niti sam nakon nje osetila neko zatezanje. Nanosim je jednom do dva puta nedeljno i za vreme tih nekoliko minuta topim se od uživanja u mirisu borovnice.


After the application it should stay on the face for 5-7 minutes, then you should gently rub it in a circular motion into the skin. I first get my hands wet and then rub with wet hands. Scrubbing is done with diamond powder. Scrub is medium strength, and I think it won't bother even people with sensitive skin, although owners of this skin type should approaches scrubbing with caution. Although the mask has clay basis, it didn't dry my skin out, and I didn't feel any tightening after use. I apply it ones ore twice a week and during those few minutes I just melt from the great scent of blueberries.


Evo kako izgleda tekstura ove maske. Bele je boje i gusta je, a po teksturi je između glinene i kremaste maske.


Here's what the texture of the mask looks like. It has white colour and it is thick, with texture between creamy and clay mask.


Zadovoljna sam i ovom Freeman maskom, a mogu da kažem i da mi je omiljena maska koja vrši piling od svih Freemanovih koje sam do sad probala. Ova maska u sebi spaja blagodeti glinenih, hranljivih maski i pilinga...3u1. Da li ste je probali i kakvi su vaši utisci?

Moje omiljene četkice


Četkice su veoma bitan deo procesa šminkanja, zapravo one su neophodne ako uopšte želimo da pokušamo da se našminkamo dobro. Ja jako volim da ih kupujem, ali isto tako ne želim da kupujem nerazumno skupe četkice luksuznih brendova, već se uvek opredeljujem za jeftine. I među njima mogu se naći odlične četkice, a u ovom postu sam htela da vam pokažem one koje ja lično najviše volim i kažem vam za šta volim da ih koristim. Sve male četkice retko kad su bile skuplje od 500 dinara, dok su velike za lice recimo oko 1500 dinara. Kod većine sam napisala cenu, ali za nekoliko nisam znala tako da ste ostali bez tačne cene.


Brushes are a very important part of any make-up, in fact, they are necessary if you want to apply your make-up well. I really like to buy them, but I also don't want to buy unreasonably expensive brushes from luxury brands, but I always decide to go cheap. Even here you can find excellent brushes, and in this post I wanted to show you the ones that I personally love the most and tell you what I use them for. All small brushes here are not more expensive than 500 RSD, while big ones are around 1500 RSD. I wrote most of the prices, but a few I didn't know so you'll have to remain without their exact prices.


Četkice za podlogu:
- Blush 32 - 620 din, Alexandar Cosmetics,
- Real Techniques Expert Face Brush - 1339 din, DM .
Dve realno vrlo slične četkice, meke i odlične za razmazivanje tečnog pudera. RT je malo manja i blago pljosnata dok je Blush okrugla. Po gustini i mekoći su veoma slične. Verovatno zbog manje veličine, RT upije manje proizvoda prilikom nanošenja.


Foundation brushes:
- Blush 32 - 620 RSD, Alexandar Cosmetics,
- Real Techniques Expert Face Brush - 1339 RSD, DM.
Two realistically very similar brushes, soft and excellent for spreading liquid foundation. RT is slightly smaller and slightly flatter while Blush is round. The density and softness are very similar. RT absorb less foundation during application, probably because of the smaller size. 



Četkice za oči:
- Blush 14C - 320 din, Alexandar Cosmetics,
- Blush 65E - 310 din, Alexandar Cosmetics,
- Blush 14B - 320 din, Alexandar Cosmetics.


Brushes for the eyes:
- Blush 14C - 320 RSD, Alexandar Cosmetics,
- Blush 65E - 310 RSD, Alexandar Cosmetics,
- Blush 14B - 320 RSD, Alexandar Cosmetics.


Voljene četkice za blendanje Blush 14B i 14C koristim svaki dan. 14C je kraća i zbog toga mnogo bolja u blendanju, pa je koristim za pregib kapka, dok dužu 14B koristim za svetlije nijanse koje nanosim ispod obrva i finalno blendanje ka pregibu. 65E je fenomenalna pencil četkica, tvrda taman koliko treba.


Beloved blending brushes Blush 14B and 14C I use every day. 14C is shorter and therefore much better at blending, and I use it for crease, while the longer one 14B I use for lighter shades that I apply below the eyebrows and for final blending toward the crease. 65E is a great pencil brush, with just the right firmness.


Četkice za nanošenje senki:
- Cala 313329 din, Alexandar Cosmetics,
- Essence četkica za senke - oko 250 din, Lilly, DM,
- Ubu 36 Smudger Brush - deo kompleta, DM,
- Mineralza Small Chisel Eye Brush - 500 din, preko FB.  


Brushes for the application of eye shadows:
- Cala 313 - 329 RSD, Alexandar Cosmetics,
- Essence Eye Shadow Brush - around 250 RSD, Lilly, DM,
- Ubu 36 Smudger Brush - part of a set, DM,
- Mineralza Small Chisel Eye Brush- 500 RSD, on FB.


Četkice za nanošenje senke preko celog kapka su prilično proste i pred njima nisu veliki zahtevi, a moje omiljene su Essence i Cala 313. Tu su i dve vrlo specifične četkice Ubu za razmazivanje i Mineralza za veoma precizno naošenje.


Brushes for application of eye shadows across the eyelid are quite simple, without any demanding tasks before them. My favourite ones are Essence and Cala 313. There are also two very specific brushes in this group, Ubu for smudging  and Mineralza for very precise application.


Četkice za rumenilo:
- Real Techniques Blush Brush - 1389 din, DM,
- Ecotools četkica za rumenilo - DM.


Blush brushes:
- Real Techniques Blush Brush - 1389 RSD, DM,
- Ecotools Blush Brush - DM.


Sa ove dve četkice pokrivena sam kakvo god rumenilo da koristim. RT je obla, meka i retka, odlično kupi veoma pigmentirana rumenila, mada mi se ne sviđa baš kako joj ide blendanje ako je prvo nanošenje malo darežljivije od željenog. Ecotools je pljosnata i koso sečena sa obe strane. Odlična za blendanje i nanošenje skoro svih rumenila, pa je najčešće i koristim. Osim u slučaju veoma pigmentovanih gde posežem za RT.


With these two brushes I am covered whatever blush I use. RT is round, soft and rare, great for very pigmented blushes, although I don't exactly like how it blends if the first application is a little more generous than desired. Ecotools is flat and cut on both sides. Excellent for blending and applying almost all blushes, and I mostly use this brush. Except in the case of some highly pigmented blushes, when I reach for RT.


Posebne četkce za lice:
- Ebelin ravno sečena četkica - 569 din, DM.
- Blush 10A - Aleksandar Cosmetics.


Special face brushes:
- Ebelin Straight Cut Brush - 569 RSD, DM.
- Blush 10A - Alexander Cosmetics.



Ebelin četkica je prilično tvrda i od plastičnih vlakana koja mi nisu mnogo lepa sama po sebi. Ok je i za nanošenje podloge, međutim ono za šta mi je odlična je nanošenje korektora tj. kamuflaše, ako mi je potrebano da je nanesem na naku malo veću površinu. Odlično je razmaže i blenda pa dobijem jače prekrivanje bez težine. Blush 10A je divna precizna četkica za konturiranje, meka i srednje veličine.


Ebelin brush is quite hard and I don't like its plastic fibers that much. It is good for applying foundation, however what I love is how it applies concealer ie. camouflage cream if I need higher coverage on a larger area. Great in applying and blending, so I get more coverage without weight. Blush 10A is a wonderful precision brush for contouring, soft and medium in size.


Četkice za kameni puder:
- Ecotools četkica za puder - deo seta, DM,
- Look by Bipa kabuki - nema u Srbiji.


Powder brushes:
- Ecotools Powder Brush - part of a set, DM,
- Look by Bipa Kabuki - not available in Serbia.


Obe četkce su meke i prosto savršene. Kabuki je veći. Beskrajno je mek i lep. Obe četkice koristim podjednako, mada kabuki često nosim sa sobom pošto je kratak.


Both brushes are soft and simply perfect. Kabuki is bigger. Infinitely supple and beautiful. Both brushes I use the same amount, although I often carry kabuki with me, since it is short.


Četkice za korektor i obrve:
- Blush 12A - 345 din, Alexandar Cosmetics,
- Ecotools četkica za korektor - deo seta, DM.
- Ecotools četkica za obrve - deo seta, DM.


Concealer and eyebrow brushes:
- Blush 12A - 345 RSD, Alexandar Cosmetics,
- Ecotools Concealer Brush - part of a set, DM.
- Ecotools Brow Brush - part of a set, DM.


Blush 12A je fenomenalna četkica koju svakoga dana koristim za razmazivanje tečnog korektora na podočnjake. Da se ja pitam možda bi je napravila malo mekšu. Ecotools četkica za korektor je odlična za nanošenje korektora i kamuflaže na lice, a četkica za obrve je super pošto je vrlo uska i precizna.


Blush 12A is a phenomenal brush that I use every day for blending liquid concealer on dark circles. If I could choose I would make it a bit softer. Ecotools concealer brush is great for application of concealer and camouflage on the face and brow brush is very nice since it is very narrow and precise.


Sve ovo su četkice koje koristim skoro svaki dan. Volim ih i bez njih ne mogu. Da li i vi delite ljubav prema nekoj od ovih četkica? Da li volite da kupujete četkie?


These are all brushes I use almost every day. I love them and without them I couldn't function on a daily basis. Do you share my love for some of these brushes? Do you like buying make-up brushes?

Balea Schrunden Schaum - pena za ispucala stopala sa ureom i ši puterom


Koliko se secam mislim da je Sjajolika rekla nešto tipa: "Ova pena može da sredi i trolovska stopala". I ja sam morala da je imam! Nemam trolovska stopala, ali pošto treniram bosa moram uvek da negujem stopala da se koža ne bi zadebljala i da moja stopala ne bi postala trolovska. Posebno mi je bilo zanimljivo što ovaj Balein proizvod nije krema, već pena, koja podseća na penu za kosu. Pena dolazi u maloj metalnoj boci od 100ml koja košta samo 237 dinara. Iako je bočica prilično mala, manja je od dezodoransa, pena mi traje već više meseci a nanosim je svako veče. Hm, tek sam sad shvatila da mi ovoliko dugo traje i šokirana sam. Strava!


From what I remember I think that Sjajolika said something like: "This foam can mend even a troll-like feet". I had to have it! I don't have troll feet but I train barefoot, so I always care for my feet to prevent my skin from thickening and my feet becoming troll-like. Especially interesting is that this Balea product is not a cream, but a foam that resembles a hair mousse. Mousse comes in a small metal bottle of 100ml, which costs only 237 RSD. Although the bottle is quite small, smaller than a deodorant, foam is lasting me for months and I apply it every night. Well, I just realized that it is lasting this long and I'm shocked. Awesome!


Pena ima veoma lep cvetni miris i kremastu teksturu. Mali stisak na pumpicu daje više nego dovoljno pene za celo stopalo, ja mažem recimo penu veličine manje nektarine (hahah koje poređenje) na jedno stopalo. Lako se razmazuje i brzo upija, a na koži ne ostavlja masan film i nije lepljiva. Odmah može da se uleti u krevet i na spavanje!


Mousse has a very nice floral scent and creamy texture. Small press on the pump provides more than enough foam for the entire foot. I apply foam the size of a small nectarine (hahah what a comparison) on one foot. It spreads easily and is quickly absorbed. Doesn't leave a greasy film on the skin and isn't sticky. You can immediately rush to bed and go to sleep!


Kao što sam rekla moja stopala nisu neki ekstrem. Nemam ispucale pete, jer noge manično negujem kako bi uvek izgledale dobro. Pena se super pokazala u održavanju dobrog stanja moji stopala, kao i omekšavanju zadebljanja. Ipak nisam ubeđenja da je pena baš svemoguća i da može da omekša veoma propala stopala. 


As I said, my feet are not an extreme. I don't have chapped heels, because I manically care for my feet so they can always look good. Mousse was great in maintaining a good condition of my feet, and a in softening thick parts. I'm not convinced that the foam is so powerful that it can soften even very chapped feet.


Pena sadrži ureu i glicerin, kao i ši puter i ulje avokada. Pre upotrebe treba promućkati, a piše da se nanosi dva puta dnevno na čistu kožu. Ja je nanosim samo uveče pred spavanje, i zadovoljna sam negom. Jeftina, zabavna za korišćenje, a učinkovita. Prodato! Kupujem opet. :)


The foam contains urea and glycerine, as well as shea butter and avocado oil. Before use, it should be shaken and applied twice a day to clean skin. I apply it only before bedtime, and I am satisfied with care it provides. Inexpensive, fun to use, and effective. Sold! I'll buy it again. :)


Da li ste probali ovu zanimljivu penu? Da li vam je vratila trolovska stopala u normalu? Hahah...carski epitet od Sjajolike.

Maybelline The Nudes Palette


Jeftine palete sa više nude senki su se pojavle kod nekoliko brendova u poslednje vreme. Sve sam obletala, pipkala testere i ni jednu nisam do sad kupila. Ili im je pigmentacija bila losa, ili loš odabir šimerastih i mat senki, mali broj nijansi, ili prosto nijanse koje mi nisu bile ništa posebno. Poslednja koja se pojavila, i jedina koja je bila dovoljno dobra i lepa da bih je kupila je Maybelline The Nudes paleta. Paleta koja mi se učinila jeftina, lepa, zaokružena i dobro promišljena.


Cheap palettes with nude eye shadows were released by several brands lately. I hovered around them, poking testers and didn't buy any of them until now. Either pigmentation was bad, or there was a bad choice of shimmery and matte shades or a small number of shades, or I simply thought that shades were nothing special. The last one that appeared, and the only one that was good and beautiful enough for me to buy is Maybelline The Nudes palette. The palette seemed cheap, beautiful, rounded and well thought of.


Paleta košta 1136 dinara i ukupno ima 9.6g podeljenih u čak 12 senki. Na zadnjoj strani postoje predlozi za kombinovanje senki, međutim kako je reč o nude i braonkastim nijansama, vrlo je lako upariti sve senke u paleti jedne s drugim. Pakovanje je plastično, prilično čvrsto i dobrog kvaliteta, a u kutiji se nalazi kratak sunđerasti aplikator sa užim i širim sunđerom. Ja sunđeraste aplikatore zaista ne koristim nikada, pa mi je sve jedno, ali ako neko slučajno koristi, verovtno bi cenio dužu dršku.


Palette costs 1136 RSD and has a total of 9.6g divided into as many as 12 eye shadows. On the back there are proposals for combining the eye shadows, however, since they are all brownish hues, it is very easy to pair all of them with each other. The packaging is plastic, quite firm and of good quality. In the case there is a short sponge applicator with a narrow and wider sponge. I never use sponge applicators, so I don't care about it, but those who do would probably care for a longer handle.


Sastav / Ingredients:


Kvalitet senki je zaista dobar. Pigmentacija je solidna, čak i svetlijih nijansi. Ne krune se i lako nanose i blendaju. Paleta je odličo izbalansirana. Postoje i mat i šimeaste nijanse i svetlijih i tamnijih nijansi. Sve senke su podjednako korisne i univerzalne.


The quality of eye shadows is really good. Pigmentation is solid, even the lightest shades. They don't crumble and are easy to apply and blend. The palette is well balanced. There are matte and shimmery shades, with lighter and darker colours. All shadows are equally useful and universal.


Evo nekoliko kombinacija koje sam napravila u prvih par dana posedovanja palete. Paleta je odlična za dnevnu šminku, ali pošto ima i tamnije nijanse sa njom ćete se dobro snaći i pred noćni izlazak. Ovo je definitivno paleta koju ću nositi na putovanja, jer ne volim da se tovarim, a konačno na jednom mestu imam sve, a da ne moram da se danima šminkam identično.


Here are a few combinations that I made in the first few days of owning this palette. The palette is great for daytime makeup, but it also has a darker shades, so it will cope well even with night makeup. This is definitely a palette that I will carry when I travel, because I don't like overloading. I finally have everything in one place, and I don't have to have an identical makeup every day of the trip.


Opisaću na brzinu sada i pojedinačne senke, pošto fotografije znaju po nekad i da malo omaše nijansu. Redosled će biti gornji, pa donji red, sa leva na desno, za svaku sliku zasebno (a takav je redosled i na swatch-evima):


I will describe shortly all individual eye shadows since photos can be a bit wrong sometimes. The order will be top than bottom row, from left to right for each image separately (ant swatches are in the same order):


- šimerasta topla boja šampanjca, sa šljokicama srebrne i zlatne boje, 
- svetla kapućino nijansa, neutralnog podtona, srednje šimerasta, a šimer je srebrne boje,
- mat boja slonovače,
- šimerasta srednje tamna braon, neutralnog podtona, sa srebrnim šimerom,
- srednje tamna mat braon kapućino nijansa, neutralnog podtona,
- svetla ali ne previše, šimerasta senka, po boji između zlatne i bež, topla,


- shimmery warm champagne shade, with silver and gold shimmer, 
- light cappuccino hue, neutral undertone, medium shimmery with silver shimmer,
- matte ivory,
- shimmery medium dark brown, neutral undertone, with silver shimmer,
- medium dark matte brown cappuccino hue, neutral undertone,
- light but not too much, shimmery eye shadow with the colour between gold and beige, warm,


- tamnija topla šimerasta braon nijansa sa zlatnim šimerom,
- svetla moka mat nijansa,
- tamna mat braon nijansa,
- tamna šimerasta braon sa bakarnim šimerom,
- svetla šampanjac nijansa, slična je prvoj senci u paleti, ali iako u paleti deluje rozikastije, pri nanošenju je hladnija i više vuče na srebrno,
- mat crna nijansa (iako na slikama same palete deluje malo teget).


- darker shimmery warm brown shade with gold shimmer,
- light mocha matte shade,
- dark brown matte shade,
- shimmery dark brown with copper shimmer,
- light champagne hue, similar to the first eye shadow in the palette, but even though in the palette it seems a bit pink, when applied it is cooler and has colour more towards silver,
- matte black shade (although on the photos of the palette it looks a bit navy blue).


Ova paleta je odličan ulov po mom mišljenju. Moguće je da sniženje u Lilly-ju još traje, pa ako vam se sviđa, trk da je nabavite za manje od 1000 dinara! Da li ste je možda već kupili i kakvo je vaše mišljenje o njoj?

This palette is a great catch in my opinion. It is possible that discount in Lilly is still going on, so if you like it, run and buy one for less than 1000 RSD! Did you perhaps already purchase it and what is your opinion about it?
