2012 Favourites

ff2012 title

Dear readers,

I apologize for being so late and I wish you all the best in the new 2013 year. I hope that it will surpass 2012.

I can’t believe that I have almost forgotten about my annual favourites list. Well, actually I can. I’ve been more focused on “eat all you can” during holidays (as if the food is going to disappear soon) and I’ve managed to balloon myself up to 67 kilos of fat. Nice work, Tamara. Anyway, I think that the New Year will reacquaint me with Ross Enamait’s Warrior Guide to Fitness to tone up a bit.

Fleurissante’s Favourites lists my favourites products in the last year. It doesn’t matter if they were freshly released or something available for a long time, which I have discovered the last year – the only thing that matters is that this are the products which have come closely to the Holy Grail status.

So, let’s go:

——–

Dragi čitatelji,

Ispričavam se na kašnjenju i želim Vam sve najbolje u novoj 2013. godini. Nadam se da će biti puno bolja od 2012.

Ne mogu vjerovati da sam skoro zaboravila na svoju godišnju listu najdražih proizvoda. Zapravo mogu. Bila sam više usredotočena na tamanjenje sve hrane koja mi je došla pod ruku (i zub) ovih blagdana (kao da će je nakon blagdana nestati) te sam uspjela dovesti na divnih 67 kila sala. Svaka čast, Tamara. U svakom slučaju, čini se da ću se u novoj godini intenzivno družiti s knjigom Rossa Enamaita „Warrior Guide to Fitness“ u nadi da ću se barem djelomično dovesti u red.

Lista mojih favorita donosi meni najdraže proizvode prošle godine. To nisu nužno proizvodi koji su te godine lansirani – bitno je da sam ih ja počela te godine koristiti i da su mi se toliko svidjeli da su se približili (ako ne i postali) sveti gral.

Pa krenimo:

Make-up (Šminka)

ff2012 lips

Together with eyeshadows, lipsticks are my huge fetish. This year I have discovered many exciting formulas and shades and among those my favourites are: Guerlain Rouge Automatique (especially the shades I own: Nahema, Rouge d’Enfer and Shalimar), MAC in Lady Danger (perfection) and Catrice Ultimate Shine in Kiss Kiss Hibiskiss (another perfect formula and perfect colour).

Uz sjenila, moj veliki fetiš su ruževi za usne. Ove godine sam otkrila mnogo uzbudljivih formula i nijanis, a moji favoriti su Guerlain Rogue Automatique (posebno nijanse Nahema, Rouge d’Enfer i Shalimar), MAC ruž u nijansi Lady Danger (savršenstvo) i Catrice Ultimate Shine u nijansi Kiss Kiss Hibiskiss (savršena formulacija i savršena boja).

ff2012 blush

I’ve found out about an amazing blush: Sisley Phyto Blush Eclat in Pinky Coral which was the shade I was looking for – the perfect peachy pink.

Također sam otkrila izvanredno rumenilo: Sisley Phyto Blush Eclat u nijansi Pinky Coral koja je točno onakva kakvu sam tražila – prekrasna breskvasto roza.

ff2012 nails

There are also many beautiful nail polish shades, but my favourite discoveries this year were Max Factor Fantasy Fire, Catrice Pimp My Shrimp and Raspberry Fields Forever.

Također sam kupila mnogo prekrasnih nijansi lakova za nokte, ali najdraže otkriće su mi Max Factor u nijansi Fantasy Fire te Catrice lakovi u ovim nijansama: Pimp My Shrimp, Raspberry Fields Forever te Fred Said Red.

ff 2012 eyes

When it comes to the eyeshadows – these two are the absolute number one: Sisley Phyto Ombre Eclat in Stardust and Garden Rose. Stardust is the perfect shade for a sparkly, but not over the top smokey eyes. Garden Rose, on the other hand, is a 2in1 product – it can work as a blush and an eyeshadow. What’s best, it makes my greyish-blue eyes pop.

Kad je riječ o sjenilima – ove dvije nijanse su apsolutni broj 1: Sisley Phyto Ombre Eclat u nijansama Stardust i Garden Rose. Stardust je izvrsna nijansa za svjetlucavi smokey eyes. S druge strane Garden Rose je 2u1 proizvod – možete ga koristiti i kao rumenilo i kao sjenilo. Ta nijansa također jako dobro ističe moje sivo-plave oči.

ff 2012 fragrance

I’ve discovered one of my favourite fragrance brand: By Kilian. Even though the question whether his fragrances deserve to be put into the niche category is still opened to discussion, By Kilian has impressed me with the two of its fragrances: Beyond Love and Love and Tears. Beyond Love is my favourite summer fragrances. It smells so warm, floral and absolutely intoxicating. Love and Tears is a jasmine rhapsody – very feminine and elegant with a hint of wood in the drydown.

Otkrila sam i jedan od meni najdražih brandova parfema: By Kilian. Iako vrsni poznavatelji parfema još uvijek raspravljaju o tome zaslužuju li njegovi parfemi svojom kvalitetom ima niche parfema, By Kilian me impresionirao s dva parfema: Beyond Love i Love and Tears. Beyond Love je moj najdraži ljetnji parfem. Miriši jako toplo, cvijetno i u isto vrijeme opojno. Love and Tears je jasminova rapsodija – jako ženstven i elegantan parfem s drvenastom bazom.

ff2012 face and body

The last year I have completely ignored L’Occitane and switched to Yves Rocher. Their Jardins du Monde Shower Gel collection is a true treasure. The gels are well-formulated. They clean without drying out the skin and they come in a huge range of scents. My favourites so far are Ylang Ylang and Tiare, with Cotton Flower and Cocoa Bean coming close, but I have yet to test many other scents.

Prošle sam godine potpuno ignorirala L’Occitane i prebacila se na Yves Rocher. Njihova Jardins du Monde linija gelova i kremi za tuširanje je pravo blago. Gelovi su dobro formulirani i peru kožu bez isušivanja. Također dolaze u širokom rasponu mirisa. Meni najdraži mirisi do sad su Ylang Ylang i Tiare, a opasno im se približuju i Cotton Flower te Cocoa Bean, ali još ne bih zaključila listu jer još imam puno mirisa za isprobati.

Bioderma Sebium Micellar Water has introduced me to a whole new niche of cleansers. It is a relativelly afordable and effective, non-irritating cleanser. A must have in every cosmetic bag.

Bioderma Sebium micelarna otopina otkrila mi je novi svijet proizvoda za čišćenje lica. To je relativno povoljno i učinkovito neiritirajuće sredstvo za čišćenje lica i proizvod koji se mora naći u svakoj kozmetičkoj torbici.

SVR Chronolys Eye Contour Cream is a very moisturizing cream which is a salvation for my under-eye area during winter.

SVR Chronolys okoloočna krema je jako hidratantna krema koja me zimi spašava.

This list wouldn’t be complete without Yves Rocher Plaisirs Nature Malaysian Coconut Body Lotion. It is a light-weight, quickly absorbing moisturizing lotion and one of few I can tolerate.

Ova lista ne bi bila potpuna bez Yves Rocher Plaisirs Nature Malaysian Coconut losiona za tijelo. To je lagani, brzo upijajući hidratantni losion i jedan je od rijetkih koje mogu tolerirati.

So, this is it. Thank you for reading and thank you for your patience.

Love, Tamara

Evo, to bi bilo to. Puno vam hvala na čitanju i na strpljenju.

Tamara
