New In ~ A Haul Post

Heya everyone! Time to show you what I have gotten in March. Now, my birthday is in March, so what you are looking at are my birthday presents. :) Most of the time my friends just take me to a store and let me choose my gift, as they know my wishlists are endless. Which is quite a great solution, I would say, for both sides.:)

Here is what I have gotten, and if you are wondering why the 'loud' background, it is the fabulous FC Barcelona blanket my girls gave me and I need to show it off. <3

I got a little bit of everything, most of the jewelry I got from Born Pretty Store because I got a lot of points on their page that I just needed to change into money for some goodies. :)

Something for the lips ...

When I first found out that my beloved Bourjois is making a matte lip creme line, Rouge Edition Velvet, I felt almost giddy. My favourite finish by my favourite brand!? Yes please! After checking out the colours, I saw that two were a must (on the photo), with other two being utterly gorgeous (both red, number 1 and number 8), but I lack the excuse to buy them, as I already have so many reds in my stash. A good friend of mine surprised me with both shades I wanted to have, 02, Frambourjoise and 07, Nude-ist. J'adore. :) Bourjois did not disappoint with Rouge Edition Velvet. Then again, every lipstick line I have from them was a great, great experience. 

The lip liner is from Maybelline Moisture Extreme line, called Rose and is perfect for a natural lip. I got it as a part of a product exchange on butik.si, and I am really happy with it, it lasts forever on the lips!

Something for the face ...

I am running low on my foundation and it was a perfect coincidence that my birthday was now and I could 'order' it as gift. :) I love Bourjois Healthy mix foundation, and as I read the new version is even better than the old one. Win win!

The egg-y sponge applicator for foundation I ordered from Born Pretty Store, just to try it. It was quite cheap and I had my points to pay with so why not. I need to watch some videos on how to apply the foundation with it, I tried it once, and felt like it was just soaking my foundation in. So perhaps I am doing something wrong. Or I do not know how to apply foundation with it. Either way, I read so much good stuff about this applicator, that I wanted to have it and now I do. 

Aaaand something for the eyes ...

Bourjois Twist up the Volume mascara in black, as I am running low on my hot pink Bourjois Volume something mascara. It was again 'ordered' for my bday, and I admit, I love the twisting applicator. I tried it once and I also like the effect. It is still a bit wet, but in the beginning they all are, what matters most to me is that it makes my eyelashes pop, and that is an achievement with my short excuse for an eyelash. 

Essence Blow my Mint eyeshadow from Bloom me Up! LE is an attempt at my mint eyeshadow lemming. It is the perfect shade for all the combinations I want to try out. Alas it is not as pigmented as I wanted it to be, on my eye it just appears silver-y. 

And some bling-bling

The ring, the bracelet and the necklace I got from Born Pretty Store and the Deathly Hallows pendant was a gift from my girls. The ring is a leaf and I absolutely love the pattern, plus it is a bigger ring, that I prefer. The bracelet has the Mockingjay sign and for all Hunger Games fans I needn't say more. The octopus is for my Ulmiel costume, I am planing to upgrade it a bit, thus the small investment in accessorising. ;)

In case you are wondering how it looks like in action ...

Can you feel my love for Bourjois in this post? Major fan, really. :D 

And that is it! Good month! :D Thank you all for the wonderful gifts, you know who you are. :* 

What did you get in the previous weeks for yourself? Any FC Barcelona/Hunger Games/Harry Potter/Bourjois fans out there? :D

Thank you for reading and commenting!


  1. Kje si dobila Mockingjay zapestnico? Jaz sem ful fenica. :D

    1. Na Born Pretty Store strani: http://www.bornprettystore.com/trendy-mockingjay-bracelet-multilayer-braided-bracelet-p-11640.html Imajo pa več verzij, recimo tale je tudi fajn: http://www.bornprettystore.com/love-birds-sword-belt-bracelet-hand-knitting-leather-strap-multilayer-bracelet-p-7590.html

      Se splača malce pobrskat. :) Ja, Hunger Games rocks. :D

  2. I've heard that you need to wet the sponge first so that it doesn't soak up foundation. Don't know if you did that or not.

    1. I've done that, but still ... maybe I didn't soak it well enough? I will practice with it. :) Thanks for the tip!

  3. Jaz sem tudi čisto navduđena nad Bourjois Velvet šminko. Sicer sem za začetek kupila samo pink odtenek, ampak imam še 2 na WL. Ah, zapestnica je prečudovita. <3

    1. Jaaa, meni so res super tele šminke, stalno jih uporabljam. Pa ful so mi obstojna, oba odtenka. Zapestnica je pa tudi meni zelo všeč, imam v načrtu nabavit še tisto z Deathly Hallows znakom. :)

  4. Vidiš mene pa Bourjois Velvet ni prepričal...ful mi je krneki, neobstojna.

    1. A res? Zanimivo, moji dve sta tako obstojni, da se moram celo ob odstranjevanju kar malce potruditi, kar prilepita se na ustnice. Kateri odtenek pa imaš? 08 je malce slabše pigmentiran, morda je tu težava, če imaš tega, samo je Mateja pisala, da dve plasti super držita. Ostalih odtenkov pa žal ne poznam.

  5. krasni ruževi, ali mislim da ću im ipak odoljeti ;)
    meni ta spužvica popije dosta pudera, ali lice zbilja izgleda fantastično nakon nje, meni je spužvica bolja od ijednog kista... ali češće koristim kist jer mi ide brže :D
    krasan ti je i nakit, naročito šojka rugalica <3

  6. Mockingjay narukvica mi je najbolji dio od svega :D
