January Favorites 2016

As mentioned in my previous blog post, this is one of the new releases that Catrice are bringing out this year. While at first I was not sure, if the shade will suit my skin tone, I quickly realised I was reaching for it every single day. I love the convenience of a blush and highlighter in the same palette and the way they give my face a lovely natural flush. There is an in-depth review already on the blog where you can read more about it.

When Petra from Adjusting Beauty posted a photo of these brushes on her Instagram, I was so excited to buy these. I immediately ordered the whole set here. They are so lovely, but the one I was reaching for the most is the loose powder brush. It is a big brush, but not very densely packed, which makes it perfect for bronzing the face. It picks up just enough of product and makes it easy to give the face a lovely sun-kissed look.

Another brush from the same set is the slightly tapered blush brush. Much smaller but more densely packed, it is perfect for applying blush on the cheeks. It makes it easy to apply and blend the blush to make it look very pretty and natural.

Jessup Tapered Highlighter Brush

The moment I set my eyes on this brush, I knew it would be absolutely perfect for highlight. It is just big enough, but soft and very densely packed, so that it picks up enough product and dispensed it perfectly on the top of the cheeks. If only this one also came with the pretty metallic, handle like the previous two.

L'Oreal Infallible Mattifying Base

Even though I got this one quite a long time ago, it was only now, when my skin was acting up because of the winter, that I started using it every single day. It is a very unusual consistency and it took me quite a while to get used to, but it keeps my face matte and helps my foundation to last much longer.

Rimmel Match Perfection 2-in-1 Concealer & Highlighter

This one is a piece of makeup that I keep re-purchasing (and keep forgetting to mention it on my blog). It's a perfect under the eye concealer, it hides dark circles and gives the face such a gorgeous highlight. The brush applicator makes applying very easy and with this one, a little product goes a long way.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude Lipstick in 45

While I was re-ordering some of my Rimmel staples from, this one kind of crept into my basket and soon found it's way into my everyday makeup bag. It's such an easy, on-the-go nude lipstick, perfect to throw in your pocket or a handbag and can easily be applied without the mirror. The shade is a very neutral nude, barely noticeable but it gives the lips that something extra that you want for everyday makeup. It's really moisturising and feels soft on the lips, and even though it's not the most long-lasting, I don't mind as it is so easy to re-apply.

Eucerin AQUAporin Active

This cream was sent to me at the end of last year, and I admit, at first I was sure I wouldn’t be able to use it. However, after my skin started getting really dry due to the cold winter air, this came in to the rescue. It feels quite rich, but applies smoothly and sinks easily into the skin. I use it every night and wake up in the morning with a fresh, and moisturized happy skin.

Avon Care Cocoa Butter Rich Cream

Quite a while ago, I was also sent a big package of Avon Care Cocoa Butter range. Besides the fact that the scent is absolutely delicious, the product are really lovely and feel amazing on the skin. However, of all the products, I tend to reach the most fort his cream. It's feels rich, but the texture reminds me of a pudding and it makes applying it such a dream. My skin seems to drink this up, and has never been so soft. This completely changed my attitude towards moisturizing my body, as I am now looking forward to doing it every single night.

White ceramic bunnies

When I found these in Tedi, there was no question; I simply had to bring them home. They are so cute and will help me transition my room decor from winter to spring. I keep wanting to go back to get some more…

So here they are, the first favourites of this year. I think there might be some staples in here that will stay with me through the whole year.

What were your favourites this year?

  1. Tele Jessup čopiče si bom tudi jaz naročila, kar cel set, mislim da sem našla enega k jih je 10 notri, ker mi čopiči vsi razpadajo... L'orealova baza je zakon, sem si že drugo kupila :P Pa Eucerin krema tudi, jo ravno testiram!

    1. Jessup mam jst cel set in so prav vsi iz seta super. Krasni puder in blush brushi :D (ubistvu imam dva seta, sam drugi je moder pa malo bolj splošno oblikovan :) )

  2. Eucerin krema je zakon! :) Si me spomnila, da moram še oceno spisat. :P Joj, pa ta kakavova linija od Avon tak diiišiii. <3
    Me pa mikajo te Rimmel šminke, bi jih rada že kar nekaj časa preizkusila. :)
    Sem pa jaz zadnjič tudi kupila nekaj teh zajčkov iz Tedija in en tak krožniček za nakit, ko ima na sredini enega zajčka. Super kjut in poceni. :)

    1. Mislim da vem o katerem krožničku govoriš, meni je tako žal da ga nisem uzela -.- :D

  3. Jaz tudi uporabljam powder brush za bronzer. Ravno super velikosti je. Jessup mi izgleda zanimivo, zelo podobna oblika mojemu Zoeva Highlight čopiču. Je mehek? Mislim, če primerjaš z temi metalik iz Ebaya? Joj ti zajčki so res luškani. Jaz sem jih že tudi gledala :).

    1. Popolnoma primerljiv, če ne celo še malo bolj mehak in prijeten :D

  4. I ordered L'Oreal Infallible Mattifying Base couple of hours ago and Ebay metal brushes are on their way to me. I am really courious how they will be :) Catrice trio blushes look great and I see me buying one when they finally get to my country.
    Bunnies look super cute ;)

    1. I hope they work out for you as well! The brush trio is absolutely lovely, I might even buy it in another shade :D

  5. Jaz sem si tudi naročila en čopič za probo, ste me vse blogerke zagrele zanjo :) Rimmel šminka pa res zgleda tak fajn odtenek <3

  6. To L'oreal Infallible Mattifying Base si moram kupit! Že par oseb je reklo, da je dobra in je res že čas da jo sprobam :) Drugače pa od Avona je tudi ta butter meni najboljši izdelek, izmed teh ki smo jih prejele :D

  7. Hm sem že tolikokrat videla omenjeno to eucerin kremo, da me res mika, da bi jo preizkusila, mam nekak občutek, da bi ji moja koža bila hvaležna :) Zdaj me pa mika ta čopič za "bronzer" :D Sem dobila dva (za blush pa contur) od petre za božič (oujea!) In se mi zdaj zdi, da rabim še tega :D
    In oooomg kaki lepi zajčki :) Res lep dekor :)
