Top 10 autumn beauty products

autumn beauty products

Today, I’d like to share 10 beauty products that are entering my skincare routine this autumn and that I’m personally very excited about.


autumn beauty products Vichy The Ordinary

Heating takes its toll on my skin and I often notice it becoming more dehydrated and the pores getting more and more enlarged – almost as if they’re trying to suck all the moisture out of the air? This year, I’ll be battling the dehydration with The Ordinary 2 % hyaluronic acid. This acid is normally present in our skin but we can replace it when we feel that our body cannot hold enough moisture. Don’t forget to lock it in place with an oil based product, be it a cream or a pure facial oil – my favorite right now is Yanumi! I’m also bringing back the Vichy Pore Purifying Clay Mask that comes in this nifty two-use packaging. It contains two mineral clays and I always feel like it sucks the impurities right off my face. I usually buy my Vichy products at the pharmacy.


autumn beauty products L'Occitane Terre de Lumiere L'Oreal Mythic Oil

L’Occitane is always present in my skincare. In autumn days, I prefer heavier scents and oily shower gel since I fell they give more moisture to my skin. This fall, I’ll be using the L’Occitane Terre de Lumiere shower gel that comes from the perfume line Terre de Lumiere. The perfume itself is a bit strong for me, but the shower gel and body lotion have a more gentle smell which is very pleaseant. Another product that is always in my routine is the L’Oreal Professionel Mythic Oil. I always apply some to my hair while they’re wet. Ocasionally, I’ll warm a few drops between my fingers and apply them to the ends of my hair when they feel particularly dry. After use, my hair are soft and shiny.


Catrice Brown Collection autumn beauty products

If you haven’t had enough of the Catrice Brown Collection polishes on my Instagram, here they are again. These are not colors that I’d wear in the summer but the earthy tones are perfect for fall and winter. I have three out of five shades in the collection – left to right they are 01 Fashion Addicted, 03 Goddess of Bronze and 02 Sophisticated Vogue. The formula is quite thick so one coat will do. I like that because it usually means my manicure will last a bit longer.


autumn beauty products Golden Rose Paese, Trend it Up, Physician's formula

I like my make-up to be a bit softer in the colder months. Although the Physician’s Formula MuruMuru Butter Bronzer smells like coconut and reminds me of summer, it’s still lighter then most of my bronzers and gives me that slightly sunkissed look. I’ll also be reaching for Golden Rose highlighting stick (Bright gold). This cream highlighter is really soft and blends out beautifully. If I’m going for a more striking look, I’ll apply it twice, but otherwise two gentle sweeps on top of the cheekbones will do the job. Don’t forget – always apply cream products before setting your face, otherwise it can look quite unnatural.

In the summer, I barely use any blush, but now the Trend It Up powder blush (020) is making a comeback to my everyday make-up routine. The formula of these blushes is great, very gentle and blends out nicely. On top of that, the price is great as well. Last but not least, let’s not forget about a good primer. I usually stay away from silicone primers in the summer (since they do nothing for wear time of my foundation), but I tend to like them in the colder months. Paese make-up base is the first one on my list. Paese is a polish brand that’s been impressing me with their products lately and this primer is definitely one of them!

autumn beauty products autumn lipstick colors

When speaking of autumn lips, I think of darker colors, but I also like to include at least one shade that I can just pop on and leave the building. This time, this will be the job of Avon lipstick (Extreme Mauve) which is a nice pink shade but not too crazy to wear around the office. Among reds, I chose the NYX Gloss (True Red). For special occasions and walks around town, I’ll go for the Catrice by Dawid Tomaszewski in the shade C01. These are great lipsticks for a great price!

These are the products that I’m going to be using for the next couple of months. Have you tried any of them yet? I’d also love to hear about at least one product you cannot imagine autumn without. Until next time, stay beautiful!

Golden Rose Lipsticks: matte vs. matte vs. matte!


Golden Rose matte lipsticks are all the rage right now. Golden Rose just released a bunch of new shades of liquid matte lipsticks and the social media in Slovenia have gone crazy over them. I already discussed my opinion on GR liquid matte lipsticks once before (you can read about it *here*) but I often get asked about other matte lippies by Golden Rose. So here is the long promised and awaited post of matte lipstick vs. matte lipstick vs. matte lipstick.

Golden Rose mat tekoče šminke so v Sloveniji ogromen hit. Pred dnevi so v kolekcijo dodali še cel kup novih odtenkov in družbena omrežja so eksplodirala od navdušenja nad njimi. Sama sem o tekočih Golden Rose mat šminkah že pisala (mnenje si lahko prebereš *tu*), vendar pa me bralke pogosto sprašujete tudi, kakšno je moje mnenje o drugih mat šminkah te znamke. Zato danes končno objavljam dolgo pričakovano objavo o troboju med tremi Golden Rose mat variantami šmink.

Let’s start with the classic I talked about above – the Golden Rose Longstay Liquid Matte Lipstick (photo: shade 11). Unlike most of my blogger colleagues, I’m really not a fan of this formula since it has a strong vanilla scent that really bothers me when I’m wearing it. I also find the applicator too big for precise application. Granted, once it’s on your lips, it will last a long time and is pretty comfortable to wear, but I simply don’t enjoy it as much as I hoped I would.

Začniva s klasiko, o kateri sem govorila že zgoraj – Golden Rose Longstay Liquid Matte Lipstick (na fotografiji odtenek 11). Za razliko od večine blogerskih kolegic nisem ljubiteljica te formule, saj ima močan vonj po vaniliji, ki me moti ves čas nošenja te šminke. Prav tako se mi zdi aplikator prevelik za natančen nanos, ki ga tekoče šminke seveda zahtevajo. Res je, da je obstojnost dobra in je v primerjavi z mnogimi tekočimi šminkami formula dokaj udobna, vendar pa mi žal ta šminka ni tako všeč, kot sem upala. View Post


The year is coming to an end and among other things, a post about my favorite make-up products in 2016 is an absolute necessity. I reviewed quite a few of these products during the year. Where such post already exists, I’m including a link so you can read about the product in detail.

Eden od letnih zaključkov, ki je vsekakor nujen, je takšna objava o mojih naljubših ličilih, s katerimi sem se srečala v letu 2016. Mnogo teh izdelkov sem tekom leta že ocenila – kjer takšna ocena obstaja, bom vedno dodala povezavo, da si lahko prebereš še moje podrobno mnenje.

I tried to choose one product in each category but had to leave some categories out (like bronzer) because I simply didn’t find a product that would amaze me in 2016. Since there are still a bunch of products I want to talk about, let’s get started!

V vsaki kategoriji sem poizkusila izbrati en izdelek, pri čemer pa sem morala nekaj kategorij izpustiti (na primer bronzer), ker enostavno letos nisem našla izdelka, ki bi me tako očaral, da bi ga danes želela deliti s tabo. Ker pa je ličil vseeno veliko, predlagam, da kar začneva.

Let’s start at the base. My favorite primer of the year is L’Oreal Infallible Mattifying base. It’s a silicone primer that was put on hold during the warm summer months, but in normal weather this primer creates a lovely base on my face, fills the pores and prepares the skin for the liquid foundation. In that category, I really enjoyed the Catrice HD Liquid Coverage which is a mattifying foundation. Dropper made sure that the application was simple and besides being mattifying, this foundation also excelled in coverage. I also have to mention the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops (review *here*) that truly amazed me this year. I mixed them with primer, day cream, BB creams and other liquid foundation. They always blended nicely and made my skin look nice and fresh. Last but not least I want to mention the Maybelline Affinitone concealer that is creamy and thick (more than I can say for most concealers I own) so I mainly use it to cover imperfections and not for highlighting under my eyes. It’s too heavy and creamy for that in my opinion.

Začniva pri osnovah. Moj najljubši primer leta je L’Oreal Infallible Mattifying base. Gre za silikonski primer, ki je v največji vročini sicer počival v predalu, vendar pa mi v normalnih temperaturah ustvari lepo podlago na koži, zapolni pore in kožo s tem pripravi na tekočo podlago. Med temi sem letos uživala predvsem v uporabi Catrice HD Liquid Coverage, ki je mat tekoča podlaga. Kapalka poskrbi za enostaven nanos, poleg matiranja pa se ta podlaga lahko pohvali tudi z dobro prekrivnostjo. Poleg te podlage dodajam še Cover FX Custom Cover Drops (ocena *tu*), kapljice, ki so me letos poleti resnično navdušile. Dodajala sem jih primerjem, dnevni kremi, BB kremam in drugim tekočim podlagam, s katerimi so se odlično zmešale in ustvarile lep, svež videz moje kože. Nenazadnje je tu še Maybelline Affinitone korektor, ki je bolj kremast in gost, kot je to značilno za večino korektorjev v moji last, zato ga uporabljam predvsem za prekrivanje nepravilnosti na koži, ne pa toliko za osvetlitev predela pod očmi, saj je za to po mojem mnenju pretežak in pregost.

Golden Rose event

Golden Rose brand recently celebrated its first year since bringing the brand to the Slovenian market. I’ve mentioned their products quite a lot on my blog already since Golden Rose brand has a wide variety of products and the prices are very reasonable.

Znamka Golden Rose je pred kratkim praznovala prvo leto, odkar so svoje izdelke pripeljali na slovenski trg. Na mojem blogu sem o znamki že večkrat spregovorila, ker gre za znamko s pestro ponudbo izdelkov in žepu prijaznimi cenami. 

Until now it was only easy for us girls from Ljubljana to get the Golden Rose products (in BTC Hala A and City Park), but this story changed a couple of months ago – now, you can buy their products in the online store and shops in Celje and Velenje.

Do sedaj smo imele le Ljubljančanke ta privilegij, da smo z lahkoto lahko prišle do Golden Rose izdelkov (v BTC Hala A in City Parku), vendar pa se je zgodba bistveno spremenila nekaj mesecev nazaj – sedaj lahko namreč izdelke kupiš tudi v spletni trgovini ter v trgovinicah v Celju in Velenju.


Along with my fellow beauty bloggers, I attended a birthday celebration of Golden Rose where we celebrated along Slovenian brand owner Enisa Musai, Gregor from online store and make-up artist Mateja Pozeb.  We also had a chance to try out some new products from the offer but unfortunately the lighting was quite bad so photos don’t do justice to the products.

Tokrat smo se blogerke ob prvem rojstnem dnevu znamke Golden Rose družile z lastnico blagovne znamke Eniso Musai, Gregorjem iz spletne trgovine ter vizažistko Matejo Pozeb. Kasneje smo imele možnost kar nekaj novosti v ponudbi tudi preizkusiti, vendar je bila žal svetloba preslaba, da bi fotografije ne delale krivice izdelkom. View Post

BEAUTIFUL PINK OCTOBER (Slovenian beauty bloggers collaboration)

Why pink, you might ask? Sure, there is nothing pink about it if you look at the nature – all golds and greens and yellows everywhere you look. But the color pink is tied to the month of October in a different way.

In the month of October, me and my fellow Slovenian beauty bloggers want to remind every girl, mother, woman, sister out there that none of us are safe from the danger of breast cancer that is commonly connected to the pink bow, like the one in the photo below.

I want to remind you that self-checking is important. Early detection is key to successful treatments! Ideally, you would check your breasts every month, about 7-10 days into your monthly cycle. On this webpage (click!) you can read more about how to check yourself and can also download an app that will remind you to check your breasts and show you exactly how you do it.

Remember that not every change in the breasts means malignant cancer, so if you feel something, there is no reason to panic! Talk to your doctor and together you will choose the right way to proceed. I am knocking on wood, though, that none of us will ever have to go through that!
