Review: BPS holo nail foil


Today I have a review of Born pretty store nail foil for you. As I was typing the title of this post I accidentally wrote holo nail fail which is exactly what this is :) I don't know if this is bad foil or I just don't know how to use it but I wasn't able to transfer much of the holo on my nails :( 
First I applied black polish and waited for it too dry almost completely and then put nail foil on. That didn't work well as more polish sticked to the foil then foil on polish. Then I tried with Essence foil glue. I painted my nails and after they were completely dry I put a thin coat of glue and again waited for it to almost dry. The foil seemed to stick better (the result is on photos) but no holo. It still looked good but more metallic blue rather than holo.

Review: Balea Reinigungs öl (cleansing oil)


Balea Reinigungs öl (2,60 €) already made its first appearance in my monthly favourites but both you and me wanted a separate, more detailed post. Cleansing oils have been all the rage lately and have been on my wish list for some time now. Unfortunately they were mostly unavailable in Slovenia and/or quite pricey. I was really set on trying the L'Occitane one when Balea released cleansing oil.

Review: Essence Valentine - Who cares? (first impression and swatches)


Valentine's day is upon us and as always, Essence prepared a trend edition all about this. Instead of going with classic hearts and pinks they chose the other route and declared a war on Valentine's day. Ok maybe I'm exaggerating a bit but it's refreshing to see an anti Valentine's day collection. Essence team sent me the translucent fixing powder and smokey eyeshadow stick for review and I bought the perfume and liquid lipstick myself.

Review: Aussie hair care


I am so far on some of my posts it's cringe worthy. The bright side of this situation is that these products are very well tested :) Last year in September I received three Aussie hair care products of my choice for review. I picked Aussie Miracle moist shampoo, conditioner and Aussie 3 minute miracle reconstructor. In Slovenia Aussie products are available in Muller and Dm for around 7€ per product.

Essence Amazed by you


I received Essence Amazed by you at the Beautiful Blogger Meetup back in October. Gorgeous Autumn shade but it took me a while to finally wear it. Essence Amazed by you is a classic shade, warm purple with strong red undertones. It dries a bit darker on my nails which isn't a problem for me. I had a bit of a problem with the application since I'm not a fan of their curved brush. The formula is normal, not too thin and not too thick. I did the standard two coats followed by a coat of top coat. Despite the brush Essence Amazed by you is a must have <3

Golden rose Rich color 45


First post of this year, let's do this :)

Golden rose is fairly new on our market but I've been a fan way before they came to Slovenia. Currently I'm loving their Velvet matte lipstick line but it's nail polish that initially made me like them. Let me refresh your mind with a wonderful vampy texture Golden rose Holiday 58  or vacation-by-the-sea craving Golden rose Jolly jewels 107.

One of their products that I've picked here is Golden rose Rich color 45. Although it's very affordable (think Essence range) this polish has a great cut brush, better then some pricier polishes I own. What sold me is the shade. Medium red, packed with tiny red, orange and fuchsia glitters. Unfortunately it's very hard to capture it so if you're ever in a Golden rose store, give this shade a look. The formula is a very average one, I needed two coats for a full opacity. I'm happy we finally have Golden rose products available in Slovenia and I'm excited to try new things.
