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.

Time for another FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY! Today I'll share four fashion illustrations with you. The medium for all these four illustrations is coloured pencils on A4 regular printing paper.  The materials used weren't anything fancy, but I still wanted to share these. I drew two of these sketches without a specific reference. The outfits illustrated were a product of my imagination. However, the other two fashion illustrations were drawn with a reference. I was inspired by two fashion bloggers and I drew the summer outfits they were wearing. The illustrations are drawn in classical proportions, not elongated ones that I often use for fashion sketches. I do draw in different styles, sometimes the choice of style depends on the artistic effect I'm going to and sometimes just on  my mood (especially when I'm not doing anything particulary ambitious). Scroll down to see and read more!

Sustainable fashion is such a hot topic right now, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned into a fashion revolution. More and more people are trying to minimize their carbon print by re-wearing their clothes and shopping their closets. One good way to build a functioning wardrobe you'll love to shop is to make sure you have a couple of essential items in it. These basic pieces can help you shop your closet more easily and become more sustainable in your fashion choices. A denim skirt is one such classical and essential item.  Today I'll show you ten ways to style a denim skirt. I had this particular denim skirt for a couple of years, it's by Croatian denim brand Amadeus (not sponsored) that I can recommend for its quality denim. For me this skirt is one of those items that are season-less and by that I mean those clothing items that can be worn in any season. If you're creative enough, you can figure out a way to wear most of your clothes in any season, but some ite…


Yesterday I finally took the the time to watch (and listen) to the Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 collection. The runaway show was organized in retro style and lasted about half and hour. Instead of music, it featured a British narrator who commented on the designs in the old style (that is how fashion shows used to be presented, narrated instead of accompanied by the music). Anyhow, I found the both the narration and the narrator charming. The fact that the narrator pointed out all the materials used was quite helpful. The models seemed to move quite quickly, but there were 127 looks displayed so the show took a quite some time to finish. It took me twice as long to study the photographs as to see the show. The trend analysis took even more time. However, that time was not spent in vain for I was finally inspired to ponder my autumn and winter outfits. What do you know? D&G Autumn/Winter collection gave me plenty of inspiration for the colder season ahead. I don'…
