since time flies so fast I only have time for a short empties post.

This is my favorite eye cream but sadly they decided to discontinue it. It is Avon anew hydro-advance eye cream. It has a bit thicker consistency and it feel extra nourishing. I would use it in the evening and I didn't mind the heavier texture (I think it would not be very appropriate under my make-up). My skin around my eyes looked much better when I was using it, smaller wrinkles were filled in and it made me look more youthful. Now I'm on a hunt for a new eye cream that would work at least half as good as this one.

Next is my favorite foundation. Catrice HD liquid coverage foundation in the shade Porcelain Beige. I went through various bottles and I'm already using up a new one. I love the shade, coverage is buildable so it is great for the days when I don't need much coverage or on other days I can pile it on, and it covers almost everything. 

With this one I'm not 100 % sure that the brand name is Acqua alle Rose or Roberts?? Anyway, it is a micellar water infused with Rose water. In general my skin responds nicely to Rose water that was the reason I purchased this one. I think that there are better micellar waters, more effective but it was nice one. Nothing bad to say about it, it just felt like it didn't remove all my make-up from my face. I won't repurchase it but I'm interested in their toner.

Last item is this limited edition lip balm from Essence High beauty line. I didn't like the wide opening because it made applying it  harder than it should be but the formula was great. Slightly pink toned which looked nice on my lips and formula was super glossy almost as lip gloss but the best part were the hydrating properties. My lips were soft and supple all day long. If they ever come back with it I'm repurchasing it.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day

in todays empties I only have amazing products. Some are definitely going to be repurchased and back with me soon.


First we have the Ziaja Olive body wash. I purchased a full set from this olive line and so far I quite like their products. This is a body wash which was pretty liquid and a little bit at the time was enough to wash my entire body (sometimes I even used it as a shampoo and it cleansed my hair very well without stripping them too much). This big 500 ml bottle lasted me for months and thankfully the scent was also very pleasant. Creamy olive scent, I think ;) Very, very nice and I would repurchase it again.

Next is  my beloved Burdock shampoo from Ilirija. Very simple and basic looking bottle but the product does its job. It is a bit thicker and it foams really nicely. It cleansed my hair, removed all product buildup and the next day my hair were silky soft and they smell naturally herbal. This shampoo has become my favorite and it is dirty cheap. At the moment I'm using something else which is also very nice and could become my new favorite... well, they could share number one spot ;)

A couple of years ago I purchased this The Body Shop Satsuma body spray (back in the days I liked body sprays but now I prefer something more longlasting). This is a truly zesty and sparkling scent. It really reminds me of this citrusy fruit and especially the peel, because it is a little bitter and sparkling. It was a really nice refreshing scent but as I mentioned before it does not last, so I won't be buying it again in a body spray format but perhaps I will get something else from this line because the scent was lovely.

Second to last is Catrice Prime and Fine fixing spray. I have tried some of their limited edition options and so far I liked them all so why not try the 'regular' one. I did and I think it is just as good. The spray creates a fine mist and my make-up lasts longer, especially under my mask. I will definitely pick up another one but so far I have one from a previous LE and I just bought the new one form their current LE Bronze away to... after all of them will be finished I'm going back to this one.

The very last item is another Catrice product and it is from their Clean ID line and it is lip oil and since it only holds up to 2 ml it was gone pretty fast. It was a clear oil but very glossy looking and not super thin compared to some other lip oils. It also hydrated and nourished my lips so I liked it very much, unfortunately it is discontinued and I can't get a hold on it.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day

Think Pink, No - Brainer, Oh my Plump! and Strawberry Red


a little while ago my heart skipped a beat when I found out that Essence is discontinuing their line of Shine, shine, shine lip glosses. These are some of my favorites and will now be gone :(

Later on, I figured that they reformulated them and packed them in a different packaging. I have not tried the new versions but I took the advantage and bought four more before they were completely gone.

I could not resist in getting a back up of my beloved Think Pink version, next is No - Brainer (slightly warm, brown toned nude), Oh my Plump! is a bright coral with the volumizing effect (this one has a cookie scent and a minty feel to the lips, it is not very cooling which I appreciate because I figure it out that I don't like super cooling lip products anymore) and the last one is named Strawberry Red. All three, besides the volumizing one have fruity scent, which I think is very nice and pleasant.

All four have intense shimmer which helps with the glow, but they could tone it down a notch. After they dry the shimmer stays and can migrate around my lips but I don't think it is very bad, I can manage it.

Think Pink, which is a soft pink shade is still my favorite. No - Brainer is a bit too warm for me but I try to put a thin layer on my lips and I'm fine. Oh my Plump! and Strawberry Red are both on a more pigmented end and I have to be careful when I'm applying them, because otherwise I can look like a clown ;)

These have nice scent, pleasant, non sticky formula that I really like. At first I was sad to see them go but seeing all the new versions... I think after all of these are used up, I will happily pick something from the new range. I can't find many reviews on them, so I guess I will have to test them myself.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day
