Review: Essence make-up boxes

Hey lovelies,
today a have a review for you, of 2 new Essence make-up boxes.
I got those in one of the bigger Müellers in Ljubljana, they were not even on the Essence stand, but on small shelves at the end of high end brands.
The price is 6,29€ an you can get a box for face, brows, smokey eyes, bright eyes and natural eyes.
I got only the face and brow box because i have to many eyeshadows already and i am not a huge fan of essence eyeshadows anyway.

Double wings for double fun :)

Hello lovelies :)
No weekly adventures today. My week was pretty study oriented. April is aproaching quickly whitch means exams, exams and more exams. So I decided to play a bit with my MUA Ever After - Matte Palette. I do not show it much love since I got MUA Smokin palette.
Hope you will enjoy this post ;)

Products used:
* eyeshadows: Fade, Penny, Chino, Fog, Smoke, Unwrap
* Essence I <3 Stage eyeshadow primer
* Catrice cosmetics Eyebrow Filler
*MUA Extreme Curl Mascara (Black)
* Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil (15 Bling Bling)





 I first primed my eyes using Essence I <3 Stage eyeshadow primer and sweeped Catrice cosmetics Eyebrow Filler trough my brows. After that I applied Fade on the lid and Chio in the crease, witch I topped with Penny. I also applied a bit of Unwrap on my prow pone to help blend the colours.

Weekly Adventures of a Physics Student - Hair care and short nails

Hello lovelies :) 
It is Sunday, whitch means a new weekly adventures post :) I had quite a nice week and I am happy to share it with you in this post  :) 
let us begin

Weekly Hair Care

I started to incorporate some olive oil in my hair care rutine, just because I felt like my hair got a bit drier in the last month. I use it just on the tips of my hair and leave it on for half an hour to an hour before I wash my hair. I also got dandruff again. I had major problems with dandruff in elementary school and no shampoo could help me at that time. Then I discovered a simple remedy that helped me ever since. Yoghurt. I put it on the roots of my hair and let it work its magic for an hour, after that I wash my hair as normal. I recommend that you try it out if you have problems with dandruff. Just a warning though, it can be a bit messy after an hour.

Beauty Scenario Tag ~ Ajda



Hey lovelies!
I know i haven't post anything for a really really long time, but i hope you forgive me, i had a lot of work to do for college, but now it's better so i can start blogging agan. YAAY!
So just too start again i will do this short tag, which i saw a lot of bloggers/youtubers do.
Shall we start?

1. You have to get rid of all your foundations and you can only keep one high end and one drugstore, which do you keep?
I don't have any high end foundations, so i will go with drugstore, witch is Revlon PhotoReady, it is on more expensive side, but all of the blogers are counting Revlon as a drugstore...

REVIEW: Catrice Luxury Laquers

Hello lovelies :)
Today I have for you a review of some new limited edition Catrice polishes called Luxury Laquers. They como in three different forms, holographic, sand effect and glitter, all in multiple colours. I bought one of each in purple... because there is never enough purple :)
So here are some swatches and my oppinion :)


Plum Me Up Scotty (Holomania)

Plum me up Scotty is a beautiful purple holographic polish with a seriously awesome name :) It is opaqe in only one coat, but I used two, because old habits die hard. It lasts on my nails around 2 days before chipping, without any top coat. It is easy to remove and it dries quite fast.

PLUMbeach (sand sation) 

A nice sand effect polish that is more of a pinkish violet. I find it less rough than PLUMdogMillionare from their Crushed Crystals collection. It lasts around 2 - 3 days before it chipps, without top coat and is harder to remove. I needed 2 coats for full opacity (it also states soo on the bottle).


The Big Bling Theory (million brilliance) 

This polish was the biggest disappointment of the three. It contains bigger and smaller round purple glitters in a transparent base. It did not cover my nails completly even after 2 coats. I think it is better to use it as a layering polish than on its own. It lasted on me for 3 days without chipping. It is the hardest to remove of the three.



All three polishes contain 10 ml of product and are in a standard Catrice packaging with a black lid.
They all have a big brush, that is cut on the edges and the brisles are not all the same lenght. It is a shame, because with the right brush these polishes could be even more awesome.

All and all they are quite nice, especially the holographic polishes. There are really some pretty colours and the formula is quite nice, I just wish they would start to make better brushes.

Did you get any of these new polishes? Yay or nay for you?
Have a nice day ;)
Tjaša :)

Weekly Adventures of a Physics Student - Food and Games

Hello lovelies :)
I decided to do a little series on Sundays, kinda like a vlog post. Here you can find out what I did this week :) I hope you will enjoy this post :)



Food of the week:


Ah yes, food :) My boyfriend had two days off work this week whitch always means good dinner. It was so nice coming  home from college and cooking with him :) On the first picture are home made tortillas (here is the dough recepie, I use oil instead of grease) filled with some home grown veggies (carrots, tomato, broccoli, cauliflower ...) and topped with lots of cheese (I love me a lot of cheese).
On the second day we made pizza with cheese, mozzarela and lots of corn.
And on the last picture we have a nice big bowl of green salad, tomato, corn and yoghurt goodnes.
So much yum this week.

REVIEW: ESSENCE Special Topper 22 black dress and white tie

Hello lovelies :)
Today I have for you a review of a wonderful new polish Essence made :) It is really something special , I do not think any company made a polish like this before (please correct me if I am wrong). Enough chit chat, let's see some swatches and what I have to say :)

 

The polish comes in a nice standard Essence packaging with a silver lid. It contains 8 ml/0.27 fl.oz of  product. The polish is a translucent base with some small silver glitters and some big round black and white glitters. It retails for 1,49e in my local Muiller.


It has a nice brush  and applies quite nicely. The polish  dries quite fast and stays on quite some time. I have it on my nails for the last 3 days without a top coat and it is still looking untuched :) I did not try to remove this polish but I think the best tehnicque would be foiling because polishes like this can damage your nails if you are too rough while removing it.

1 Coat

 2 Coats

I looooove this polish :)I It is a normal polish, but what makes it so special for me is the glitters :)
Do you like it? Did you already get it?
Have a nice day ;)
Tjaša :)
