OCTOBER BEAUTY HAUL: Sephora, Rituals, Sache Cosmetics, H&M…

It’s half of October and I have A LOT of new stuff in my cosmetic bag to share with you – from preparative beeswax based cosmetics to some really nice makeup products and equipment. Some from Croatia, some from Sweden and some from Prague.So, let’s jump right into it! :)

Last weekend I was in Prague and I noticed a super cute, original Czech store Manufaktura full of handmade things including the cosmetics range called Pure Czech. Totally couldn’t resist (and I needed a night preparative product) and I bought the Night Face Elixir. It is based on the Pilsen beer and hops, including different seed oils. So far the first impressions are good!

Prosli tjedan sam bila u Pragu i skuzila predivan, originalan Manufaktura ducancic pun rucno radjenih stvarcica ukljucujuci i liniju kozmetike zvanu Pure Czech. Nisam, naravno, mogla odolijeti (a i trebala sam neku nocnu preparativu) pa sam uzela Night Face Elixir. Baziran je na Pilsen pivu, a sadrzi i razna ulja. Prve impresije su dobre, a dalje cemo vidjeti!

My next stop in Prague was Sephora where I was searching for a new highlight-blush-bronzer combo. I found this one by Sephora itself, it’s the MicroSmooth Baked Sculpting Trio in Sweet (01 clair light). Very pretty rose pink blush, pearl pink highlight and sun kissed bronzer – perfect colours for this fall and a great deal for 20 Euros. Tried it only once and I love the pigmentation and how the colours are really true to themselves.

Moja sljedeca destinacija u Pragu je bila Sephora gdje sam trazila novu highlighter-rumenilo-bronzer kombinaciju (volim ovakve kompaktne i prakticne proizvode). Pronasla sam ovaj od same Sephore – MicroSmooth Baked Sculpting Trio u nijansi Sweet (01 clair light). Divna roza boja rumenila, biserno rozi highlighter i odlicna nijansa bronzera – idealno za ovu jesen i za 20 Eura. Isprobala sam samo jednom i zasad mi se svidja i pigmentacija i boje.

I also picked this Color Lip Last Lipstick by Sephora in colour 05 Rose Bouquet. Amazing fall/winter colour, very deep and cool tone, it’s an interesting mixture of brown, red and pink. I had it already two or three times on my lips and, man, this is very long lasting! Amazing texture, becomes matte and stays there forever. Really great lipstick for 12 Euros.

Uzela sam i ovaj Sephorin Color Lip Last ruz za usne u nijansi 05 Rose Bouquet. Prekrasna jesenska/zimska nijansa, bas onako “duboka” i hladna, zanimljiva kombinacija smedje, crvene i roze. Nosila sam ga dva ili tri put dosad i dugotrajnost je nevjerojatna! Odlicna tekstura, ruz postaje mat nakon par minuta i ne mice se. Apsolutno divan ruz za 12 Eura.

The next new in lipstick is Posture by Illamasqua! I haven’t bought this one – my dear friend Maddi gave it to me since she doesn’t use it at all. I loved this light lavender, kind of mauve colour and the matte texture. We will see how will I combine it but I am very excited to have this special colour in my makeup bag – definitely reserved for special occasions. The original price is 22 Euros.

Iduci ruz je Posture iz Illamasque! Ovaj nisam kupila – moja draga Maddi mi ga je proslijedila s obzirom da ga je imala mozda jednom. Bas sam se zaljubila u ovu lavanda boju i mat teksturu. Totalno je posebna nijansa, nisam sigurna kako cu je kombinirati, ali sam definitivno za ovakve neocekivane nijanse! Originalna cijena je 22 Eura.

One more lipstick that I inherited from Maddi is this L’Oreal Color Riche lipstick in 392 Tanzania Rubis. At first it looks like a typical dark red but it has a nice purplish kick which creates a beautiful cherry colour! Also, very smooth, hydrating, glossy and rich texture – just how L’Oreal always does it. I already know that this will be my go-to fall lipstick.

Jos jedan ruz koji sam naslijedila od Maddi je L’Oreal Color Riche u nijansi 392 Tanzania Rubis. Na prvu izgleda kao tipicna tamna, crvena nijansa, ali zapravo ima neki ljubicasti, ciklama podton koji je pretvara u divnu visnja nijansu. Takodjer, jako maziva, hidratantna i bogata tekstura – kao i ostali L’Orealovi ruzevi. Vec vidim da je ovo moja boja za jesenske dane!

I got a new YSL nail polish as a gift from my man! I am so freaking in love with it – it’s La Laque Couture in 22 Beige Leger. The texture of this nail polish is really amazing but the colour is spectacular. It’s the perfect nude and it totally wins in my nail polish collection. Worth the hype? Absolutely! The price is 25 Euros and if you are ready to spend that money on the nail polish – spend it on the YSL.

Dobila sam novi YSL lak za nokte kao poklon od moje bolje bolovice! Prezaljubljena sam u ovaj lak – radi se o La Laque Couture u nijansi 22 Beige Leger. Tekstura je savrsena, a boja spektakularna. Ovo je savrsena nude nijansa i totalno pobjedjuje u mojoj kolekciji lakova, mogu samo super stvari reci o ovom laku za nokte. Vrijedno razvikanosti? Apsolutno! Cijena je 25 Eura i ako ste spremni taj iznos potrositi na lak za nokte – odaberite YSL.

I was totally out of the beauty blenders and sponges for a while because I love my Zoeva brushes so much. But I somehow felt like I need one now, specifically for the under-eye area. So I just picked up this one from H&M, it was only 3 Euros. I didn’t expect a lot, but I have to say that it’s quite an average precision sponge. It does the job and it has a nice shape and softness. 

Prestala sam na neko vrijeme koristiti ikakve blendere i spuzvice jer sam vjerna svojim Zoeva cetkicama. Ipak, u zadnje vrijeme mi nekako fali blender, posebno za podrucje ispod ociju. Uzela sam ovu u H&M-u, bila je svega 3 Eura. Nisam ocekivala puno, ali moram priznati da je dosta dobra, prosjecna spuzvice, takodjer precizna. Obavlja posao, a oblik i mekoca su na nivou.

This week I went to the post office and picked up a big package that came all the way from Croatia – it was from Sache Cosmetics brand! Sache Cosmetics products are based on bees wax and natural oils and you know how much I love and adore natural and organic cosmetics (especially Croatian). It was the love at first sight (and smell ;). I received the body cream, the anti-age face cream and  the dry skin masks. I am so freaking excited to try out all of them.

Ovaj tjedan sam otisla na postu i pokupila ogroman paket koji mi je stigao iz Hrvatske – od Sache Cosmetics brenda. Sache Cosmetics proizvodi su bazirani na pcelinjem vosku i prirodnim uljima, a svi znate koliko ja volim i obozavam prirodnu i organsku kozmetiku ( posebno iz nase domace radinosti). Bila je to ljubav na prvi pogled (i miris ;). Dobila sam kremu za tijelo, anti-age kremu za lice i maskice za suhu kozumaskice za suhu kozu. Bas se veselim isprobavanju, pogledajte samo boje kremica!

I had some extra time at the airport on Sunday so I stopped by the Rituals store. Who watches my videos knows my love for Rituals cosmetics and their shower products. This is the foaming shower gel from limited edition line called The Ritual of Light with cinnamon and sweet orange scent. To put it in one sentence – it smells like holidays and Christmas. That’s enough. The price was 7 Euros at the airport, I believe it is 8 Euros in the regular stores.

Imala sam viska vremena na aerodromu u nedjelju pa sam brzinski svratila do Rituals trgovine. Tko gleda moje Youtube videe (pretplatite se ako jos niste), zna kolicinu moje ljubavi prema Rituals kozmetici i njihovim tusiralicama. Ovaj pjenusavi gel je limitirano izdanje pod nazivom The Ritual of Light s mirisom cimeta i slatke narance. U jednoj recenici – mirisi na blagdane i Bozic. Pametnome dosta. Cijena na aerodromima je 7 Eura, a u trgovinama 8.

I spent the OGX Maroccan oil shampoo and since here in Sweden I couldn’t find the brand in the stores, I bought the TRESemme Botanique shampoo from the Expert Selection. The price was almost the same as the OGX (cca. 8-10Euros) but after three hair washes I will admit I love this one more. It contains coconut milk and aloe vera which gives it a very nice, decent coconut smell and it is very hydrating for the hair but also very gentle for the scalp. Big thumbs up!

Potrosila sam svoj omiljeni OGX Maroccan oil sampon i s obzirom da nisam mogla pronaci isti ovdje u Svedskoj, uzela sam TRESemme Botanique sampon iz linije Expert Selection. Cijena je bila gotovo ista (cca 8 do 10 Eura), a nakon tri pranja mogu priznati da mi je ovaj bolji. Sadrzi mlijeko kokosa i aloe veru pa mirisi onako fino, suptilno na kokos. Hidratizira i jako je njezan za tjeme, tako da – palac gore!

Aaaand the last one is the Rexona Stress Control deodorant. I needed a new one after the Vichy one I had before, Vichy is way too expensive in Sweden. This is a very subtle scent, long lasting and gentle texture. I am satisfied, especially considering the price – only 2 Euros.

Iiii zadnji proizvod je Rexona Stress Control dezodorans. Trebala sam novi nakon Vichy dezica kojem sam bila vjerna par mjeseci, ali je cijena u Svedskoj smijesna. Ovaj ima jako suptilan miris, dugo traje i njezan je. Ja zadovoljna, posebno uzimajuci u obzir cijenu – 2 Eura.
