Random Sunday #48

While browsing through my old posts searching for one particular photo I wanted to post in a beauty tag few days ago I noticed that my last Random Sunday was posted in March. I had in mind to start posting this series again, because I miss it, and when I saw it's been more than a half year since last post I knew I had to do one today. This one will be more beauty orientated and I probably won't post them regular every Sunday from now on, at least not until I finish 365 days photo challenge. 

When you try to take a good photo of your makeup and the wind is playing with your hair.

I won Born Pretty Store plate 03 in their giveaway and completely felt in love with it. Here I upgraded P2 Crazy Beauty with gorgeous flower design (I also used Essence Icy Fairy and Black is Back). 

I finally got MasterCard and now I can shop online abroad, too. I ordered this two MoYou plates few days ago and I can't wait to get them. I'm specially excited because of a Christmas plate, I just hope I'll get it before Christmas day, because I want to try all designs. :) 

I found one Slovenian magazine with this beautiful winter creative look on the cover and bought it immediately, because I want to recreate this look so badly. I hope I'll find some time this week (and that the weather will cooperate too, the fogy weather isn't the best for taking photos). 

This is a gradient manicure I did for a review of Born Pretty Store studs, but didn't like it enough, so I'm posting it here. I used Essie Fiji, a plum shade and a golden topper from Essence Naughty or Nice? set. 

Another manicure that was never posted anywhere. I did it back in September for 31 day challenge (metallic nails), but didn't like it enough so I did something else. 

I can't believe how much darker the lightest shade of Catrice Velvet Finish foundation is from the lightest shade of Nude Ilussion foundation. Is Catrice forgetting that in Europe live a lot of pale girls? I decided to give Velvet Finish foundation away, because there's no point of me keeping it since it's way too dark for me and it acts very similar on my skin as Nude Illusion.

Wearing lipstick Annie 19, which I got in a swap with Natalie. It's an amazing shade. 

That's it for today. Maybe next time I'll have for you more Christmasy Random Sunday, we'll see. Thank you for reading!

Swatches of Catrice Beautfying Lip Smoothers Sweet Caramel and Apricot Cream

As a huge fan of lipsticks I surprised myself when I completely felt in love with Catrice lip smoothers. In past I was a huge fan of lip glosses, but in last year or two I didn't reach for them much, although I was buying them all the time, but that change first with Deborah lip gloss (which will be reviewed in the future) and Catrice lip smoothers. I probably wouldn't buy all three shades myself, but when I got two shades I didn't had on Cosnova event, I decided to keep them. My Cake Pop is almost empty already, that much I love it. J


If you’re interested in a review of the shade Cake Pop, check it here, I already wrote about it. Today I’m actually going to show you swatches of other two shades, Sweet Caramel and Apricot Cream. This post won’t be very detailed review, because they are very similar to Cake Pop when it comes to formula and I think I already mentioned everything important there.


Sweet Caramel is a nude shade with brown undertone and Apricot Cream is a peachy shade. They are both sheer, glossy on lips, creamy, moisturizing and non-sticky.  From all three shades Cake Pop has the best colour payoff and its shade is the most visible on my lips. Sweet Caramel and Apricot Cream look very similar on my lips. Both contain tiny shimmer which luckily isn't noticeable after application. The same as Cake Pop they have a nice scent and a sweet taste. These are not very long lasting products, but I don’t mind reapplying them as often as I need, especially because I don’t need any mirror to do that. What I also love very much about these products is that I can apply them over a matte or semi-matte lipstick and they don’t look too glossy, but rather give it a nice, natural shine.


Although I was convinced that I don’t need all three shades, I love them so much that I wouldn't give away any of them. Even if you’re not a lip gloss lover, you’re going to love these. They cost 3,79 € (9 ml) and are available at Müller.

Did you try Catrice lip smoothers? What do you think about them? Thank you for reading!

P2 Crazy Beauty

I felt in love with P2 nail polish Crazy Beauty immediately. Even when I googled it while deciding which polish should I test, my heart decided for Crazy Beauty, even though my head didn't decide yet. I can't help myself, but blue polishes have a special place in my heart stash. I haven’t checked my stash for any dupes yet, because I wanted to test this polish without any other influences/comparisons. I’ll check it after this review, although I have a feeling that this might be quite unique shade in my stash, but then again I could be wrong. 

P2 Crazy Beauty je lak, ki me je očaral v trenutku. Ko sem prvič pregledala odtenke, ki so na voljo na spletni strani Mojadrogerija in se odločala, kateri odtenek bom testirala, se je moje srce takoj odločilo za Crazy Beauty lak, čeprav sem pregledala swatche skoraj vseh lakov iz spletne strani. Nekako se mi dozdeva, da gre za precej poseben odtenek v moji zbirki, lahko pa se seveda motim in imam že kak podoben odtenek od prej. Če ga imam, bo seveda sledila tudi primerjava na blogu.


First let’s talk about the bottle. It’s a square bottle with silver lid. I actually like this packaging quite a lot. These kinds of bottles are very easy to store, especially if you have more than one bottle. It has a wide flat rounded on top brush, which is my favourite. It’s very similar to Essence and Catrice brushes with the difference that bristles are equally cut.

Najprej nekaj besed o steklenički. Gre za prozorno stekleničko v obliki kvadrata s srebrnim pokrovom, ki ima vgravirano ime znamke. Meni osebno se zdi steklenička precej precej prisrčna, poleg tega pa je zaradi oblike preprosta za shranjevanje (še posebej, če imaš več istih lakov in jih hraniš enega poleg drugega). Lak ima širok ploščat čopič, ki je na vrhu polkrožno obrezan.  V bistvu je precej podoben Essence in Catrice čopičem, s to razliko, da je lepše obrezan in da ščetine čopiča ne štrlijo vsepovsod oz. da so vse enake.


The formula of this polish is amazing. It’s not completely creamy, it’s like it would be a bit watery (maybe because of the gel look finish), but this polish applies like a blast, evenly and it’s opaque in two coats. Crazy Beauty is a gorgeous bright blue shade. My camera is actually doing it injustice, because in person it’s not so bright. Actually imagine it with a hint of purple in it and then you’ll get the right shade.

Formula laka je odlična. Tako čopič kot formula omogočata preprost, enakomeren nanos in že dva sloja sta dovolj za popolno prekrivnost nohta. Crazy Beauty je krasen moder odtenek, vendar pa mu moj fotoaparat dela krivico, saj ga je ujel preveč svetlega. Verjetno je krivo tudi to, da ima lak peščico vijolične barve v sebi, ki je moj fotoaparat ne mara preveč in je zato noče ujeti. Je pa lak v živo naravnost prekrasen. Danes, ko pišem tole oceno, ga imam spet na nohtih in jih kar ne morem nehati občudovati. :P


Crazy Beauty polish is from Volume Gloss collection and is described as gel look polish. It definitely dries glossy, but I always add a top coat, so I can’t say how long the glossy effect lasts. But the polish itself lasts on my nail the same amount of time as all other polishes, which is around two days.

Crazy Beauty lak je iz kolekcije Volume Gloss, ki je bila zasnovana tako, da da nohtu visok sijaj, kot če bi nosila gel nohte. Lak je seveda zelo sijoč, tudi ko se posuši na nohtu, vendar pa sama vedno dodam nadlak, tako da ne morem reči, kako dolgo sijaj dejansko ostane na nohtu. Sam lak je bil na meni obstojen enako dolgo časa kot vsi ostali laki, to je dva dni.


This cute bottles of Volume Gloss polishes contains 12 ml and they cost 3,49 € at Mojadrogerija. I tried few P2 polishes till now (Color Victim shades, Sand Style polishes) and none disappointed me till now. I’d definitely recommend Crazy Beauty to blue lovers and I’m curious to try some other shades from this collection as well.

12 ml Volume Gloss lakov dobite v Moji drogeriji za 3,49 €. Do sedaj sem preizkusila kar nekaj P2 lakov, in sicer iz Color Victim in Sand Style kolekcij, in do sedaj me še noben ni razočaral. Krasne formule, nanos, odtenki, čopiči – dejansko mi je pri teh lakih všeč vse, tudi nizka cena. A lahko še enkrat rečem, zakaj za vraga DM prodaja v Sloveniji S-he Stylezone znamko, ko je P2 stokrat kvalitetnejša? Na srečo imamo Anjo z Mojo drogerijo, ki je poskrbela, da je P2 znamka dostopna tudi Slovenkam.

What is your opinion about P2 polishes? Do you like Crazy Beauty shade? Thank you for reading!
Kako so pa vam všeč P2 laki? Kaj menite o Crazy Beauty odtenku? Hvala za pozornost!

FOTD: Purple Smoky Look (Tutorial)

Last week I shared this simple smoky look with you on Facebook and a lot of you asked me to do a tutorial for it. I wasn't planning to post this look separately, because I was taking photos for a review of P2 highlighter High Beam, but your wish is my command, so here are the look and a tutorial. 


I started with a black base. I used Tokoyo longlasting eyeliner 508, which I applied all over the lid and then blended it. This eyeliner dries fast, so you have to blend it immediately after application, because otherwise it doesn't blend that well, and that happen to me, as you can see, because I was taking photos for a tutorial and pencil dried a bit meanwhile. When I blended the pencil I applied purple eyeshadow Turn the TV Off from Makeup Revolution Dia de los Muertos palette all over the lid. The application doesn't need to be perfect, because we're going to blend everything in next step. I used There is Always a Way Back, a mauve matte shade from Dia de los Muertos palette, to blend the purple and to make a transition color for black. In outer V I used black matte eyeshadow from Sleek Acid palette. Black shade in outer corner is always a must for me when doing a smoky look. 
I repeated same steps on lower lash line as well. First I applied Tokoyo pencil on lower lash line and on waterline and then blended it. Here I didn't use a purple shade, but the electric blue eyeshadow Or Get Busy Dying from Dia de los Muertos palette. I highlighted my browbone and inner corner of my eye with P2 highlighter High Beam. In the end I applied Essence Lash Princess mascara and the look was done. 


Products I used:
*Face

- Catrice Nude Illusion Nude Ivory
- Catrice Velvet Finish Velvet Ivory
- Catrice Color Correcting mattifying powder Delicate Blossom
- Sleek Face Form Fair (bronzer)

- P2 High Beam highlighter
- Catrice Mandy-rine 

*Eyes
- Essence I Love Stage eyeshadow base
- Tokoyo longlasting eyeliner 508
- Makeup Revolution Dia de los Muertos
- Sleek Acid
- Essence Lash Princess mascara
- Essence Love Brunettes from How to Make Brows Wow palette

*Lips
- Catrice Let's Mauve On


I hope you like the look and a tutorial for it. Thank you for reading!

Announcing Blogmas and a Christmas Challenge 2014

Today’s post is more of a rambling post than anything else. I have few announcements to make what will be happening on my blog in December. I’m planning few special posts for which I hope you’re going to love, I’m definitely very excited about them. :)

1. Blogmas
First things first, I'm doing Blogmas in December. That means I'll blog every day during next month. I'm so excited about this, because I miss regular blogging and I have so many things to share with you. Of course December will be very festive on my blog, but I'll try to share with you as many interesting posts as I can, including reviews, empty posts, blush collection etc.


2. Christmas challenge 2014
I wanted to join a Christmas challenge this year so badly, but I didn't find any that I'd really like, so I created my own. It has a simple name Christmas Challenge 2014 and anyone can join. :)
I wanted to create a challenge that would allow me to express my creativity not only in nail art, but also in makeup. I think most of the themes of my challenge allow me and you to express ourselves on both areas. By the themes like Under the tree you can also do a wish list. It's up to you. You can do anything you want, a makeup or a nail art or even something else if you have any good idea (like photo challenge). If you're going to do your nails, you can also use stickers, do stamping etc. There are no limits. :)

If you're going to join the challenge or you have any questions about it, tell me in the comment below. I don't have any special rules for the challenge, except that we start on December 1. After that you can post themes when you’ll have time. I think I’ll post them every three days. You're also welcome to share this challenge on your social media. I decided to reward one of the girls who will join and finish the challenge, and send her a little surprise package. Just to say thank you for a support. She will be, of course, chosen randomly. 

EDIT: I'd almost forgot to add this. You don't need to have a blog to do this challenge, you can also share your entries on any social media you want (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter), just don't forget to use hastag #christmaschallenge2014, so I can find you. :)



3. OUAT series part 2
I re-watched first three seasons of Once Upon a Time some time ago and got the idea I could continue OUAT series I was doing last year. Since the season three there were many new characters that could be an inspiration for makeup looks or nail art manicures. The idea was growing in my mind and I wasn't sure about it, until Polona from Uniqua Poly asked me to do a tutorial for Snow Queen. I took this as a sign that I have to continue the OUAT series, so in December I'm starting with it again. I'll probably do only one or two posts from the series in December (because of the challenge and all other ideas) and then continue with it once a week in January. I'll maybe also recreate some of the looks I already did; it depends from the inspiration I'll have. There will probably also be few makeup tutorials included. I'm definitely very excited to continue with this series on my blog. 



That's it for today. For tomorrow I have a tutorial prepared for you and then, I hope, I'll post another review. Thank you for reading!
