DEPEND haul

Hi again! Thank you for tuning in! As I said before, I went back to buy me some more regular Depend polishes, because I was very happy about the crackled ones, I wanted to try regular polishes too....
 I bought three od them that were kind of nothing I have in my collection yet. I picked up no.221, 227 and 247. 
I decided to try 247 first and let me tell you guys! I AM IMPRESSED!!!! In the bottle it looks gorgeous, but on nails it trully comes alive! Here you can see ONLY 1 coat! Can you believe it??!? It has gorgeous metallic finish in blue color. This is trully an unique polish!
 You have to have quite stady hand to apply this one, because every little move you make with brush is showen on nail, but I think every metallic polish does that. 
 IT's light blue color with metallic finish as I said. Only negative about this brand I have, that the bottles are too small :-) Just because I love the formula, variety of colors, I wish the bottles were larger! 
Do you like it, do you :-)? I'm in love! This one is in my top 5 polishes, for sure!!!

CATRICE haul

As all my slovenia readers know, Catrice is coming to Slovenia!!!!! To all of you who already have Catrice in your stores, you can check this also :-) Well, because this is my first Catrice purchase (except some nail polishes), I went a bit crazy buying them, but my first impression about them is..... ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM!!!!
Let's start with this eyeshadow quad, called 040 NEVER LE ME GO! I decided first try out something in natural tones, to see the texture, blendability etc... Let me first tell you that I love the packaging- clear, very sturdy box! It has two shimmery and two shadows with pearl finish. I swatched them with no base and just lightly rubbed on my skin. First impression? Love it! Price: 4,99€
 Than I also bought this amazing blush brush. You can see that it's shapped wider from the front and sides are  flat, so it's appropriate for blush, bronzer or highlight application. It's super soft and fells nice against my skin! Price: 4,39€
 Than I heard so much about this mascara- EVOLUTION TO REVOLUTION MASCARA in black, that I just had to try it. This one is one of those mascaras, that offers two different looks- LOOK 1 for natural volume (that basically means that brush picks up less mascara) and LOOK 2 for dramatic volume and perfectly styled lashes (brush picks up more product). Price: 4,99€
 Than I picked up this INTENSICE LASH GROWTH SERUM that everybody is talking about. I have one from L'Oreal (that is not available in Slovenia, well I havent' seen it yet) and it's comming near the end, so I thought why not to try this one. It has a felt tip, very precise to apply it like a eyeliner on the roots of the lashes.
 The instructions says: the lash amplifying serum works while you sleep! 25% longer lashes in 30 days! If used in combination with Catrice Lash Growth mascara. Tested and proven. Apply serum like an eyeliner on lid. Effectiveness test with 20 women for 1 month. 80% of the responders agreed that their lashes appear much longer after using the mascara and serum for 30 days.
 Well, I didn't bought mascara, only serum and I'll see if my lashes get any longer after 30 days. Fingers crossed! Price: 5,49€
 This is another product I can't wait to try- EYE SHADOW BASE, that intensifies eye shadows and improves its durability. I haven't try it out with eye shadows, but I have high hopes for it! Price: 4,39€
 I got two smokey eyes sets- 020 SMOG OVER HONG KONG and 030 MEET ME AT THE BONFIRE. First is purple-pinkish and second one is in brown-natural tones. The packaging is also very sturdy and I love how it opens on side, not on top :-) It comes with two sided brush- sponge for shadows and brush for eyeliner. Loooove it! Price: 2,69€
 This eye shadow I will use for mainly highlighting under my browbones and it's 090 BRING ME FROSTED CAKE. It's nude color, close to my skintone, with matt finish. Price: 2,99€
And this LIPGLOSS is from LIMITED edition BOHEMIA. Great, shiny golden- orangy color that smells delicious and doesn't have bad taste! 
Which is your favorite item? And which review would you like to see first?

Depend cracke polish

As some of you wanted me to show you these two polishes, I thought, why not combine them, right :-) ?
So, for my base color I used Essence SPARKLING CHAMPAGNER. As the name says, it sparkling light champagne- gold color, with frost finish. I applied two coats, just to acchieve true rich gold color. 
Then I used new DEPEND COSMETIC crackle topcoat in deep purple color. It works awsome, I could even say that works better than OPI shatter polish. The resoults are a bit different, here are more visible and bigger cracks, than OPI shatter has.

 This is the final look I came up with and I hope you like it! Tomorrow I'll get me some more Depend polishes :-)

Criss cross with Bundle monster #208

I started wth white plain base color from Essence Trend edition 50's GIRLS RELOADED called AHOY!. It's a cream white polish, really opaque (I applied two coats).
Then I used special polish in red for stamping. I placed it over Budle monster no.208- criss cross design. But because my nails are too long for all over design, I left my tips blank. 
 Then I used scotch tape tehnique and I applied p2 CINNAMON ROSE over my tips to create french tips manicure. I finished it with Seche Vite fast dryig topcoat and VOILA, we're done!

Review: Essence 50's GIRLS RELOADED limited edition

 Today I have another review for you guys. And it's limited edition 50's GIRLS RELOADED from Essence and you can read about entire collection right here. I only got these items, mainly because there was nothing else left (I really wanted the lighter shade of lipstick!)

 Let's start with nail polishes. This collection have five different shades of nail polishes and these three cought my eye.





First is 04 LOVE ME TENDER polish. I would say the color is quite unique, because it's not gold and not silver, but somwhere in between. Iove the formula and the brush. I applied two coats and it has shimmer finish.



Next one is 01 AHOY! It's plain white color, quite opaque, I applied two coats. This one has a cream finish. Love it!






This one is called 05 YOU'RE A HEARTBREAKER. It's very gorgeous shade of blue with light blue and silver shimmer in it. Also easy to use. I have to say that I love bottles of these, because they are totally different from and LE polishes before.

Next product I bought is translucent loose powder.
 It comes in cute packaging. It has a top cover and another one below, to protect from powder going on everywhere.
 It also comes with tiny applicator if you don't have a brush for it.
 It looks white, but it's translucent on your skin.
The last item I got is the brush. Is two sided brush for applying eyeshadows.  This is the bigger side and it for application of eyeshadow to the lid area...
... and the smaller side is for shading or blending of colors.
And what is your favorite product from this collection?
