January beauty files




Although a favourites post is a nice way to round up a month and write about all the products I've been loving, somehow I never got used to doing them. They always turned out a bit forced and weren't as interesting as I wanted. So I decided to twist it up and do a similar type of posts, called beauty files, where I'll write about the products and beauty routines I used during the month, without long, uninteresting product descriptions.

In January I didn't change a lot in my skincare and makeup, on contrary to popular belief that you should transform your beauty routine to start the year right. However I did switch my nails a bit, thanks to the Essence french manicure&pedicure pen that came with the January issue of Harpers Bazaar. It reminded me on how much I love french tips, it used to be the only type of manicure I wore.

Talking about hand and nails department, I really enjoyed Weleda Almond Sensitive Skin Hand cream. It smells amazing, hydrates well and isn't thick or sticky. During the winter period you always need to protect exposed parts of your skin form cold and harsh weather, so besides the hands, hydrating the lips is a must. I used Nuxe Reve de Miel and Maybelline Babylips Winter Delight Hot Cocoa the most. Babylips winter range is amazing and the hot cocoa smell is delicious. 

I also couldn't resist a nice lipstick. Rimmel The Only 1 lipstick is very creamy and hydrating, so I've been wearing it a lot. I have the one in the shade You're all mine, which is a lovely , deep pink. Recently I started searching for a nice brown lipstick and I found my perfect brown in Golden Rose Velvet Matte lipstick 22. I'll do a full post about brown lips trend soon. 

As far as the eyes go, I was playing around with L'Oreal La Palette Nude a lot. It is a nice little palette, the shades are not as pigmented as I expected, still I would recommend it. I'll also write about it and do looks with these shadows. Another big change for me was using the white and nude liner on my waterline. I didn't do it for years, and this time I opted for Max Factor Kohl pencils in White and Natural glaze, which are both great.

It's not a secret I love a nice, bold highlighter and I finally tried MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft&Gentle, another cult product that fulfilled all my expectations. I'm planing to do a makeup look with it soon.

What are your favourite products this month?



Iako su favourites postovi lep način da se zaokruži mesec pisanjem o proizvodima koje sam koristila i volela, nekako se nikada nisam navikla na njih. Uvek su ispadali kao da su nametnuti i nisu bili zanimljivi onoliko koliko sam želela. Tako da sam odlučila da uvedem male promene i pišem sličnu vrstu postova, koji se zovu beauty files. U njima ću pisati o proizvodima i rutinama za negu koje sam koristila u toku nekog meseca na malo opušteniji način, bez dugih opisa proizvoda koji nisu zanimljivi za čitanje.

U januaru nisam mnogo toga promenila što se nege kože i šminke tiče, suprotno popularnom uverenju da treba transformisati rutinu da biste počeli godinu na pravi način. Ipak, jesam drugačije lakirala nokte, uz pomoć Essence french manicure&pedicure olovke koja se dobija u januarskom izdanju Harpers Bazaar-a. Podsetila me je koliko volim francuski manikir, to je ranije bila jedina vrsta laka koju sam nosila.

Kada se radi o nezi noktiju i ruku, uživala sam u Weleda kremi za ruke sa bademom. Divno miriše, lepo hrani kožu, a nije previše masna i lepljiva. Tokom zime treba uvek da zaštitite delove kože koji su izloženi hladnoći i snegu, pa je pored ruku hidriranje usana obavezno. Ja sam koristila Nuxe Reve de Miel i Maybelline Babylips Winter Delight Hot Cocoa. Babylips zimska linija je neverovatna, a ovaj sa mirisom tople čokolade ćete želeti da pojedete.

Ni karminima nisam mogla da odolim. Rimmel The Only 1 ruž je jako kremast i hidrantan, pa sam ga dosta nosila. Ja imam nijansu You're mine, lepu tamno roze. Skoro sam krenula u potragu za braon karminom koji mi se sviđa, i svoju savršenu braon sam pronašla u Golden Rose Velvet Matte 22 karminu. Napisaću ceo post o trendu braon usana uskoro.

Što se očiju tiče, dosta sam se igrala sa L'Oreal La Palette Nude. Ovo je fina paletica, senke nisu pigmentovane onoliko koliko sam očekivala, ipak preporučila bih da je probate. O njoj ću takođe pisati uz look-ove postignute pomoću senki iz palete. Još jedna velika promena za mene došla je u obliku korišćenja belih i nude olovaka za oči na donjem kapku. To nisam radila godinama, a ovog puta sam izabrala Max Factor olovke za oči u bojama White i Natural glaze, obe nijanse su odlične.

Nije tajna da ja volim intenzivne hajlajtere i konačno sam probala MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Soft&Gentle, još jedan kultni proizvod koji je ispunio sva moja očekivanja. Planiram da uradim post sa njim uskoro.
