Beauty review / Recenzija kozmetičkog proizvoda

Catrice eye brow set was a Christmas gift. I have been using it since I have got it (almost 3 months, long enough to form my opinion). I really like that it contains tweezers (functioning ones), a brush and a mirror. It's terribly practical to have all that in one product.

Catrice set za obrve je bio božični poklon. Koristim ga otkako sam ga dobila (skoro tri  mjeseca, sasvim dovoljno za stjecanje mišljenja). Sviđa mi se što se unutar pakiranja nalazi i zrcalo, pinceta (začuđujuće dobro radi) te kist. Jako je praktično što je sve u jednom.

I've found it easy to use. Whether you go for a subtle or a dramatic look, you'll be satisfied,  both are quite easy to achieve. It doesn't stay on all day, the intensity does fade  a bit after about 5 hours. As you can see, there are two shades. I prefer the darker ones as my eyebrows are black, but the blonds I know have told them they find the seemingly grey one quite sadisfactory.

Lako je za korištenje. Lako se postiže i dramatičan i suptilan izgled obrva, pa što god vam je draže, biti ćete zadovoljni. Ne stoji baš cijeli dan, intenzivitet dosta oslabi nakon nekih pet sati. Kao što možete vidjeti, dva su sjenila. Meni više odgovara tamnije jer su mi obrve crne, ali od plavokosih sam čula da su zadovoljne sa ovim naizgled sivkastim.

I hope that was enough of photographs. All in all, I'm happy with this product. The price is affordable and it is available here (I've seen that some American beauty bloggers complain that it is available only in Europe. I hope that will change and that they will start shipping)

Nadam se da je to bilo dovoljno fotografija. Sve u svemu zadovoljna sam s ovim proizvodom. Cijena je pristupačna, ali vidjela sam da se neke američke blogerice žale da nije dostupan tamo nego samo u Europi. Možda će se i to promijeniti.


  1. Thank you so much for the sweet words <3 I'm also perceptive, I see more than I want to.

  2. I like the colors. I have a similar one from ELF that works really well with darker hair colors. Your brows are really nice, btw.

  3. Ciao Ivana! L'ho anche io e mi piace davvero molto. Lo uso sempre e mi trovo benissimo. Sei molto carina nelle foto! Un bacione!

  4. A good eyebrow set in one necessity! Its sad to had sparse eyebrows with good eye makeup!!! This one looks good. I just use dark brown and black eyeshadows of my Coastal Scents Mirage Palette as a substitute!
    Anyways, thanks for you sweet comment on my blog. I was really surprised by the comment you left here.
    How come you know of Hindu mythology???
    Answering your question there - Yes, that occurs in the Hindu epic, Mahabharata.
    The lady was Kunti who was given the blessing to have children by any 5 gods!
    She must have waited till marriage, to invoke the gods to have child.
    But out of curiosity she invoked Lord Surya (Sun God) the very next day and gave birth to a son, Karna.
    Since she was unmarried, she gave up the child by letting it afloat on a basket in river.

  5. super mi se čini taj catrice set :) ja imam essence, ali iskreno ni ne koristim ga, nešto sam probavala, pa mi se nije svidio na meni, nekako se baš uočava da ga ima, a ja to ne volim. tebi ovaj super pristaje i preslatka si sa pletenicama :) :*

  6. I love post reviews.... I can see this product is great =)

  7. Baš ti dobro stoji :) Ja verujem da bi mi odgovarao taj svetliji ton, probaću prvom prilikom :)

  8. This looks like something I just bought! But a different brand and it didn't come with tweezers. That's such a cool idea to have a tweezer in tis product.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
