Review: Avon Magic effects Molten metal


A while ago Avon surprised me with their entire Magic effects Molten metal line. The lines consists of five polishes and has the standard Avon packaging; 10 ml and a nice, straight cut flat brush. The name of the line can be a bit misleading, I was expecting more of a chrome, liquid metal finish but these are actually subtle glitter textures. I tried to put top coat over it but the surface still wasn't smooth. Polishes are quite thick but still apply great. The pigmentation is very good, you can go for a thicker coat or two thin ones.

Pred časom me je Avon presenetil z laki iz linije Magic effects Molten metal. Linijo sestavlja pet lakov v standardni Avon embalaži. Steklenčka vsebuje 10 ml laka in ima ravno rezan čopič. Glede na ime linije sem pričakovala kovinski krom finiš, vendar gre za lake s teksturo. Učinek ni tako izrazit kot naprimer pri OPI teksturnih lakih, vendar je vseeno opazen. Površino sem poskusila zgladiti z nadlakom, vendar je ta ostala nespremenjena. Laki imajo gostejšo formulo, ki pa se kljub temu lepo nanaša. Pigmentacija je zelo dobra, za popolno prekrivnost je potreben en debelejši ali dva tanjša sloja.

Review: Catrice limited edition Graphic grace


I am a bit late with this review and short on time, so we will keep it short and sweet. As always, Catrice sent bloggers a few products to test from their current Graphic grace limited edition.

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.
