Best of 2015: MAKEUP


Hello my beauties! I'm a little late with this one but still... I really wanted to post my 2015 favorites. :) This post will cover makeup but I have skincare and random favorites ready as well, so keep your eyes open for those two in the upcoming week.

Let's start with eyes first... I wouldn't be able to call myself a real eyeshadow junkie if I didn't have at least 3 eyeshadow palettes in my favorites - Chocolate Bar, Cocoa Blend and Naked Basics2 were my go-to palettes all throughout 2015. I didn't wear makeup all that often but when I did, I surely used one of these three beauties. Cocoa Blend was a huge surprise to me... I really didn't expect to love it so much. Now I'm itching to get some more Zoeva palettes. :)






NYX HD Eyeshadow primer and Catrice Eyebrow filler are one of those products I repurchase as soon as I run out (or I already have a backup in waiting). I did use theBalm's Put a lid on it when I ran out of NYX and I can say they're pretty well matched but I kind of prefer the later.

My top eyelash duo was Too Faced Better than sex mascara and Tweezerman lash curlers (I really don't know what I was doing before these two came into my life). Better than sex is my all time favorite mascara (so far) but I can't always get it on BeautyBay (they aren't stocked all that well lately) so I had to venture out and got myself one of them famous Lancome mascaras (review coming soon). Still can't decide which one I like best... I'll let you know. ;)




In the blush department I was all for gentle, pink shades so Lancome's Rose Ballerine blush and Benefit's Dandelion were my most loved and most used. At the end of the year I was also lucky and got MaxFactor's Creme Puff blush in Lavish Mauve in a giveaway at Sanja's blog and I fell in love with it right away.





Foundation/base wise I enjoyed Lily Lolo's mineral foundation in Blondie. I've been through a couple of these jars and I'm never without it. It's just such an easy foundation that gives a beautiful, natural look and feels weightless... you can't go wrong with it. :) 

When I wanted a bit more coverage or preferred just a different look/finish, I went for Vichy's Teint Ideal cream foundation. I absolutely love this foundation and it matches me perfectly which is a rare thing lately (somehow all foundations look a bit orangy on my skin, don't know what that's about). When I wore the cream foundation I always used Urban Decay's Mattifiying powder on top. It's actually not super mattifiying which I like but it does keep the shine away for a while and that's all I really need.

The corrector that wowed me was Collection's Lasting perfection. It's a beautiful, full coverage concealer that works both for blemishes and the under-eye area. Love it!

And the only bronzer in my collection (yes, the horror... a beauty blogger that owns only 1 bronzer, unimaginable!) was my beautiful Chocolate Soleil (Milk Chocolate) from Too Faced. This is the only bronzer so far that works so well with my fair complexion and I love it (the beautiful chocolaty scent doesn't hurt either).





2015 was the year of 'nude everything' for me so nude lips were also 'in' most of the time. UD's Revolution lipstick in Naked with a bit of Clarins' lip perfector on top was the winning combination.

When I wanted a bit of color I went for MAC's Syrup (mauve) or Crosswires (pink-red-coral shade). Speaking of MAC... I need more of their lipstick shades, like now! ;)

Lip care wise, L'Occitane lip balms really grew on me. I now own 3 of them and I love them all. They aren't suuuper hydrating and won't heal chapped lips but they're totally fine for regular dry lips and for protection in colder/windier weather. Plus they smell really, really good.





As I mentioned before, I had a nude craze in 2015 so my nail polish shades were mostly from that family as well, except some really lovely glittery ones. I mostly wore shades like OPI's My Vampire Is Buff, Don't Bossa Nova Me Around and Ciate's Iced Frappe. The two 'glittery' ones that really impressed me were Illamasqua's Facet and Ciate's Antique Brooch.




And here's a little 'fotd' for you, using a bunch of the products mentioned. ;)

*TRUDI Baby care kozmetika



Kot prava navdušenka nad kozmetiko, sem že v nosečnosti raziskovala vse možne linije 'baby izdelkov' in seveda naletela tudi na Trudi. Trudi sem poznala že prej, ker sem zelo rada uporabljala njihove vlažilne/čistilne robčke zase, za nego telesa ali pa za odstranjevanje makeupa. Krivec za moje navdušenje nad ostalimi izdelki iz njihove ponudbe pa je bila mami, ki mi je seveda nabavila cel kup reči, še preden sem sploh kaj omenila. :) In kot da to ni bilo dovolj, sem v sodelovanju s Trudi Slovenija dobila priložnost preizkusiti še praktično vse ostale izdelke, ki jih njihov nabor premore.




Trudi tekoče milo s cvetličnim medom - Gre za nežno milo, namenjeno za čiščenje otroških rok ali drugih delov telesa. Sama sem milo uporabila za kopanje otročka, včasih pa ga čisto malo nanesem na krpico in mu umijem roke - zdaj, ko se že malo packamo s kašicami, pride zelo prav, saj včasih sama voda ne odstrani vsega oz. ne očisti dovolj. Naš malček na srečo ni na nič občutljiv, zato me tudi ni strah uporabljati kakršnokoli kozmetiko, a mislim, da bi ta izdelek (tako kot tudi ostali izdelki te znamke) bili zadosti nežni. Vonj mila je zelo prijeten (vsaj mojemu nosu) in zares diši po cvetlicah in medu.

Trudi kopalno mleko s pomarančnim medom - Čudovito dišeče kopalno mleko je zelo prijetno in nežno ter se skoraj nič ne peni (super!). Težko je obrazložiti, ampak ko ga dodam v vodo, jo naredi vlažilno, prijetno, saj je po kopanju malčka tudi moja koža na rokah nežna in čisto nič izsušena. Čeprav naj bi tu šlo za pomarančni med, kopalno mleko diši izredno podobno tekočemu milu s cvetličnim medom. Ta medeni vonj s pridihom cvetlic pa je nekako prisoten skozi celotno linijo (robčki, vlažilna krema,...). 

Trudi mlečni šampon s cvetnim prahom - Izdelek, ki se ga lahko uporablja kot 2v1, kopalno mleko in šampon za lase. Sicer se mi zdi, da pri dojenčkih še ni toliko pomembno da se uporablja prav šampon za lase, a če imaš 2v1 izdelek, ki je prilagojen tudi za poraščene dele telesa, pa toliko bolje. :) Tu naj bi bila glavna učinkovina cvetni prah, ki neguje občutljivo lasišče in laske dojenčkov, prav tako pa je zadosti nežen, da ne draži oči in to lahko tudi potrdim, ker nam je malo prišlo do učk, pa ni bilo nobenih solzic. :D

Vsi trije izdelki so si pravzprav precej podobni, tako da ne bi trdila, da potrebujete prav vse. Sama bi nekako uporabila mlečni šampon za kopanje in umivanje lask, milo pa za umivanje rokic/nogic. 




Trudi hranilno olje z gelee-royalom - Hranilno olje za nego ali masažo dojenčkov. O vonju ne bom več razpravljala, ker diši čudovito, tako kot vsi Trudi izdelki. :) Gre za hranilno olje, ki pa ni pretirano mastno in se zelo lepo vpije v kožo. Sama ga uporabljam za nego lasišča, po kopanju. Malo olja zlijem v roke, porazporedim po malčkovi glavici in ga lepo vmasiram, nato pa mu na glavico nataknem kapo (nobenih sledi o temencah ali prhljaju!). Super izdelek!

Trudi zaščitna krema s cinkovim oksidom in čebeljim voskom - Odlična krema za zaščito ritke! Ker vsebuje cinkov oksid, je precej gosta, vendar še vedno lepo mazljiva. Kot vse tovrstne kreme seveda pusti na koži bel 'premaz', ampak ravno to je znak prave zaščite. :) Kreme ne uporabim pri vsakem previjanju, ampak zvečer preden gre malček spat in vem da bo celo noč v plenički. Super zaščiti kožo in na srečo (tok, tok, tok) še nismo imeli nobenega pleničnega izpuščaja.

Trudi odišavljen balzamični gel - Gre za balzamični gel z esenco kamilice, brinja in evkaliptusovega medu. Omogoča počasno izhlapevanje eteričnih olj, ki otočku odprejo dihalne poti in olajšajo dihanje. Prav zares še nismo bili prehlajeni, je pa imel nekaj časa precej zamašen nosek, sploh zjutraj po celi noči spanja, zato sem ga vsak večer po umivanju po prsih namazala s tem gelom in stanje se je malenkost popravilo oz. vsaj zdelo se mi je, da je lažje dihal. Gel diši zelo, zelo prijetno, toplo in prav nič močno, res zelo primerno za malčke.




Trudi čistilni robčki s cvetnim nektarjem - Robčki, ki jih zvesto uporabljam (in ne menjam!) že vrsto let, mi zdaj pridejo prav tudi pri otročku. Načeloma ga še vedno umivam s krpcami in vodo, ampak ko sem na poti, pa robčki pridejo zelo prav. So res izjemno nežni in zelo vlažilni (kako mi gredo na živce nekateri robčki, ki so pravzprav suhi in potem drgneš po otrokovi koži, da kaj sploh očistiš). O vonju raje ne bom... vsaka mamica, ki sem ji dala robčke za povohat, je bila navdušena nad vonjem. Robčke se dobi v velikem pakiranju, ki ima mimogrede super sistem za odpiranje/zapiranje, pa tudi v manjši, potovalni velkosti (20 robčkov).




Trudi Dry Fit pleničke - Odlične pleničke z zelo visoko stopnjo vpojnosti in odlično ponudbo velikosti. Trenutno lahko še vedno nosimo 2ko (midi, 4-9kg), medtem ko moramo pri vseh ostalih pleničkah kupovati že 3ke ali celo 4ke. Pleničke so sicer malo bolj 'trde' na otip (mamice boste najbrž vedele o čem govorim), a ravno zato super vpojne, zato jih mi uporabljamo za ponoči. Trakci za pritrdit/zalepit so zelo dobri in se lahko večkrat prilepijo/odlepijo, ne da bi takoj postali neuporabni. Poleg vsega pa so tudi zelo lepe, s prisrčnim ponatisom medvedkov v kombinaciji z nežno turkizno barvo.

Če nekako povzamem... Trudi je cenovno ugodna, nežna, čudovito dišeča kozmeitka z zelo privlačno embalažo, ki bi navdušila vsako mamico. Na žalost pa je tudi precej nepoznana, saj imajo nekatere druge znamke (govorim o Musteli, Johnsons&Johnsons, ipd.), kar nekakšen monopol na našem trgu. 

Če želite preizkusiti nekaj drugačnega, lahko Trudi kozmetiko kupite na naslednjih prodajnih mestih:

Baby blog: I'm 4 months old


Hello lovelies! Another month has passed and my baby boy is growing like nobody's business... :) He's now almost 4 1/2 months old and developing crazy fast... I swear he learns something new every day. 




He's making all kind of fun voices and is laughing out-loud (which always makes my heart melt). :) He can grasp and hold his toys and loves to shake them up and down (especially if they rattle). He wasn't too happy with tummy time just a while ago but now enjoys it more and more. He's been able to flip on his back from his tummy but wasn't (well, still isn't) able to turn on his tummy by himself, I need to give him a little boost. But... he's getting better and better and he's trying to turn around every chance he gets. He's not as fond of his bouncer as he was before, but can still sit in it for a while... especially when we eat. Speaking of eating... he's now getting 200ml of formula and we also started with 'solid' foods. Pumpkin wasn't a success but we're going to give it another go and try to mix in some other vegetable. On the other hand... he does seem to like rice flakes and is getting familiar with the whole spoon-eating thing. :D




We had our second vaccination a week ago and it went really well, again (I'm so happy he hasn't had any side effects and I hope it stays that way). He's now 66cm tall and weighs 6900g. He's above average when it comes to height but is right in the middle when it comes to weight, which I'm really happy about. 

He's still being a little angel and sleeping through the night but he's not too good at sleeping through the day (though that varies from day to day). He loves it when we go out for a walk (which is everyday) and sleeps in the stroller the whole time. He still cries only when he's hungry or sleepy, though I've noticed that he does cry/whine sometimes when I walk away form him into another room and he can't see me. :) Oh, and our dog is getting more and more exciting for him... he loves to watch her and laughs at her when she sneezes or makes some other fun move/sound. :D

What can I say other than he's an absolute joy to be around and I'm falling more and more in love with him...
