Haul: I Can't Help Myself


I bought something ... again. Lately I can't pass a store without buying something (of course we're talking about cosmetic stores, because I'm usually quite picky about clothes and other stuff).
So this time I got a nail polish for my sister (the confetti one) and three Catrice nail polishes for me. Than I saw the new Essence LE collection and I had to grab the liquid blusher, a gloss and a solid perfume ring (for my giveaway!) :)

I also bought a nice scarf (not in the cosmetic store) as lately it seems I have an obsession with scarves. They're my IT thing this Spring :))



Catrice nail polishes: blue (on top pictues) - Up in the Air; the green one is Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy; and the raspberry one is called Raspberry Fields Forever

FOTD: Pin Up Nerd

Hello Darlings!

I did this makeup as an exercise for my first ever Pin Up phtotshooting and just because I was home and needed a bit of cam whoring makeup practise :P

So enjoy in the pics.

 

Nerd is sexy now! I love this trend that has been going on with nerd glasses :) Once being a nerd was everything else except sexy, but now everything has changed! I love that! That just proves to me that fashion is such a frivolous little thing that changes its mind from one moment to another .... and that true beauty and how you feel about yourself shouldn't be conditioned by fashion and by what is supposed to be pretty right now. So feel confident in your skin, no matter how smart and/or pretty you are. Because remember: beauty comes from within.



 Kiss :)

NOTD: Essence Let's Get Lost

Hello :)
Again a blue nail polish on my nails. This time my nails are short, because my left index nail broke :/

I've used 1 coat of Essence Let's get lost + Essence Hello Holo on my ring finger.

NOTD: Essence Where Is the Party?


Hello Darlings,
As requested I've swatched one of Essence's latest releases - Where is the party. This nail polish is a very interesting duochrome or even threechrome - it looks purple in one light, green in another and grey in some lights. Amazing. The formula is a bit thicker, but it's very pigmented, so only 1 coat (yup, you've read it right) is needed for full opacity! I think it has got a bit of a frosty finish, since some brush strokes are visible (not so in your face as true frosty finishes).

I've failed miserably to capture the true color of it, as it's more vivid and a darker (not very saturated) lilac color most of the time.



It's definitely something new in my collection :)

Haul: Pyjamas and Nail Polish

Hello darlings :)
Today I'll show you my mini haul.
I needed some new pyjamas, so I went in the search for one. Gosh, there are so many and I didn't like any :/ So in the end I picked the one I liked best. 
Since I was in the mood for a new scarf I got one as well (love it).
Than I went to Muller and grabbed some new Catrice Nail Polish (actually had 3 in my shopping bag, but convinced myself, I don't need them right now :P), Essence Crackle Nail Polish (white) for my upcoming giveaway, Essence Black and White duo eyeliner and a new Essence gloss (I love glosses) in Trendsetter.



Have fun,
XOXO Parisky

NOTD: Essence You Belong To Me + Hello Holo


Hello Dolls :)

Maybe you've noticed that lately I've been having an obsession with the color blue?
It's just that it reminds me of the sky and all those gorgeous days when you just go on a walk and don't think about your problems, but instead of the nature that surrounds you. 

So how better celebrate the first day of Spring (actually today it's the third, but I wore it on the first) than with a pretty blue manicure that on top of everything sparkles as crazy? :))

So Ladies and Gentlemen, I present you Essence You Belong To Me, topped with Essence Topper Hello Holo.




Can you see the holo?


Have a nice day, darlings.

Review and Swatches: O.P.I. Texas Lil Shooters

Hello :)

This will be another of those fun, bilingual reviews, since a Slovene company (zapikonai) sent me this cute lil shooters.

Hej :)

To bo še ena izmed tistih zabavnih, dvojezičnih ocen :) Namreč iz zapikonai so mi poslali v oceno štiri nove O.P.I. lakce.


How they look like. From left to right: Austin-tatious Turquoise, I Vant to Be A-Lone Star, Do You Think I'm Tex-y?, RapiDry Top Coat

Kako izgledajo. Od leve proti desni: Austin-tatious Turquoise, I Vant to Be A-Lone Star, Do You Think I'm Tex-y?, RapiDry Top Coat


I'll describe them as I've listed them, starting with Austin-tatious Turquoise. Austin-tatious Turquoise is a pretty blue-green (more blue than green) nail polish that shines immensely on the sun and needs three coats for full opacity, but nail lines are still a bit visible under direct light. The application wasn't problematic at all, even though the nail polish is on the watery side.

Opisala jih bom po vrsti, tako kot sem jih naštela, začenši z Austin-tatious Turquoise. Austin-tatious Turquoise je lep modro-zelen (bolj moder kot zelen) lak za nohte, ki se zelo lepo sveti na soncu. Potrebuje tri plasti za polno prekrivnost, vendar so linije nohta še vedno rahlo vidne pod močno svetlobo. Nanos je bil neproblematičen, kljub temu, da je lak bolj voden.



I Vant to Be A-Lone Star was my least favourite from the bunch when I first saw the swatches, but it was my absolute winner when I wore it on my nails. Not sure why, maybe it was the fact, that it needed only 2 coats, or the gorgeous light blue color that looks like light grey on some lights. Who knows? But I love it.

Ko sem si ogledovala vzorce teh lakcev na internetu, mi je bil I Vant to Be A-Lone Star najmanj všeč. Ampak, ko sem si z njim nalakirala nohte, pa je to bila ljubezen na prvi nanos :))  Lak za razliko od ostalih dveh potrebuje le 2 plasti za polno prekrivnost. Je pa I Vant to Be A-Lone Star čudovito svetlo modre barve, ki na določeni svetlobi deluje siv. Ah, popolnost.



Do You Think I'm Tex-y? is a gorgeous jelly berry nail polish. It's a bit darker than in the first picture, but perfect for spring and summer. I didn't have any problems with the application with this one as well, and it needed three coats for full opacity.

Do You Think I'm Tex-y? je čudovit "žele" lak za nohte jagodne barve. V resnici je malo temnejši kot na prvi sliki, ampak še vedno je popoln za pomlad in poletje. Tudi s tem lakom nisem imela nobenih težav pri nanosu in tudi ta lak je potreboval tri plasti za polno prekrivnost.


Pros:
+ Nice colours
+ Non problematic application
+ Fast drying time
+ Different finishes

Cons:
- On the watery side
- Most need 3 coats for full opacity

Price: 11€-13€ for nail polish

Overall: This Lil Shooters Texas collection is a nice mix of different finishes: jelly, creme and shimmer. All the polishes I was sent are really pretty, a bit on the watery side and most of them need 3 coats for full opacity. But since jellys are in again, that's a "flaw" I can easily overlook. The drying time was extremely fast thanks to the RapiDry Top Coat and I've learned that RapiDry Top Coat is also suitable for konading.


Plusi:
+ Luštne barve
+ Neproblematičen nanos
+ Hitrosušeči
+ Različni finiši

Minusi:
- Rahlo vodena formula
- Večina lakcev potrebuje 3 plasti za polno prekrivnost

Cena: 11€/ na lak

Kje dobiti: TUKAJ

Povzetek: Všeč mi je, da so v tej Texas Lil Shooters kolekciji različni finiši (jelly/žele, krem in šimer). Vsi lakci, imajo rahlo vodeno formulo, vendar so letos žele lakci spet "in", zato jim to z lahkoto odpustim :) Zaradi  RapiDry nadlaka so se tudi vsi posušili v rekodrno hitrem času, poleg tega pa sem ugotovila, da ja RapiDry nadlak primeren tudi za konadiranje.


I've told you that it will be a fun review ;)

Sem rekla, da bo še zabavna ocena ;)

FOTD: Purple Simplicity

Hello Darlings,

Today I have a quick post for you with the makeup I wore on a soap-making workshop.
It was really easy to do, but it was something completely different from my usual makeup.






Look, no makeup!





I've used: 
Eyes:
UDPP 
UD Naked Palette (Half Baked + Toasted)
Kryolan Aquacolor 12 palette (purple and gold)
Fyrinnae Parental Advisory
Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Black Mascara & 1001 Lashes Mascara  

Face:
Skinfood Mushroom BB Cream
Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Rude

Lips:
wet n wild Silk Finish 25

Even though this look was very simple and wearable(ish) it felt like too much makeup (and I NEVER feel like it) because of the extremely vivid purple. Well, it was a pretty experiment.

Do you like it?


XOXO Parisky

P.S. Today is the first day of Spring!
