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 outfit proposal of the day is a casual one. I feel that not too long ago a blazer worn with jeans wouldn't have been exactly my first choice, especially paired with dad's sneakers, but times are changing. One of fun things about trends is that they can make you step outside of your comfort zone a little bit. Obviously, we shouldn't follow trends just for the sake of following them, but often they can give us inspiration. I certainly like to look at them that way, as a source of inspiration. Fashion moves in circles, so playing up with trends doesn't really have to cost anything, especially if you have already mastered shopping your own closet. The athletic sneaker trend is certainly a tempting one. It's hard to say not to the comfy sneakers trend, especially when you enjoy hiking and strolling around as much as I do. Most people do have an ugly sneaker in their closet. It is possibly the most comfortable option out there, so why not try styling it for every day…


If there is one outfit that screams spring and summer for me, it's dresses worn with sneakers. Naturally, dresses and sandals is another lovely pairing, but sneakers also have many benefits. From being orthopedic (not all of them but still) to being appropriate for all kind of terrains, there is no denying that sneakers are practical. You can take them anywhere, from a rock beach to a sandy one. You can pair them fun socks or tights for those days it's still not warm enough. Long story short, they do make for a lovely choice in this season. What are your thoughts? Do you like to wear sneakers in spring and summer? My last post was about styling dad sneakers with jeans and a blazer, and today I'll show you some of my favourite sneaker and dress combinations. If you ask me, the answer to the question can I wear dresses with sneakers is - yes, you absolutely can.

 I find that while androgynous style has its benefits, generally…


I often write about shopping one's closet on this little blog of mine. Not only is shopping our closet  a sustainable thing to do, it also helps us to get to know our closet. How can you really know your wardrobe options if you don't style and wear your clothes? The potential of every clothing item increases with a bit of tender love and care (TLC). One of the things I love about shopping one's closet is the opportunity to create stories with our clothing items. When we care about a clothing item, we're more likely to take good care of it and that can help make us more environmentally conscious. Most people could really benefit from learning how to take better care of their clothes, that's for sure. We live in an era of 'wear it then throw it'. This consumerist approach is what makes fashion industry such a horrible polluter. We can all help to change that with our every day choices. Good news is that we can all help it in a variety of ways. From buying vi…
