Notoriously Morbid Vanishing Cabinet: March 2018

Another month, another Vanishing Cabinet box! The March edition was based on the film called Talladega Nights. This is a sport comedy I haven’t seen yet so the references didn’t really come across. However, all the shadows and the lip balm looked interesting enough that I didn’t mind!

Called “Shake & Bake”, this Vanishing Cabinet consisted of shimmery and sparkly eyeshadows and an untinted lip balm. I feel that the colours were cohesive enough to create a look combining all the shadows (but to be honest, I prefer one-and-done shadows and that’s what I tend to wear 80% of the time).

Included in the package was also an Atomic Fire Ball, which tasted of cinnamon. I wasn’t a fan! That aside, let’s move on to the individual shades (and the lip balm).

Notoriously Morbid Vanishing Cabinet: February 2018

I did say that beauty boxes weren’t my thing but if there’s one I’d like to try, it’s an indie beauty box (read why, here). Notoriously Morbid provide two beauty boxes – one of them (the Mystic Monthly) is all about matte liquid lipstick and lip-related products, while the other one (the Vanishing Cabinet) is about various mini-sized beauty items. In January, you could subscribe to the VC without joining the waitlist first, so I pulled the trigger.

At the end of February, my very first Vanishing Cabinet was waiting for me in the post box! This month’s edition was inspired by the TV show 30 Rock, a cult classic (that I haven’t watched yet, oops!). I received four items and the liquid lipstick was this month’s full-sized product.

First Impressions: Lotique, Sephora and Benefit

Hello, everyone! Today I would like to share with you my first first-impression post! I’ve recently received some of these products for free at the BBMU conference, and others were bought at Sephora. I’ve only tried them a couple of times so these reviews are by no means exhaustive but I hope they give you a general idea of how these products behave. For reference; I have combination skin (normal cheeks and oily T-zone), my skin tone falls into the NW15 range (I think), my lips tend to be dry while my eyelids tend to be oily. My eyelashes are proper divas that refuse to stay curled, they’re long and relatively thick.

Čisto na dnu te objave je razglašena tudi zmagovalka nagradne ige za Melvitino Izjemno zlato olje. 🙂

Kaj me je najbolj navdušilo na BBMU?

V petek, 10. novembra, je v ljubljanskem Hotelu Lev potekala že tretja blogerska konferenca Beautiful Bloggers Meet-Up, ki jo je organizirala Nika Veger, avtorica bloga Beautyfull Blog. Udeležile s(m)o se ga lahko tiste lepotne blogerke, ki ustvarjamo že vsaj leto dni. Na konferenci se je zvrstilo šest predavanj in ena okrogla miza, prisotni pa so bili tudi številni predstavniki blagovnih znamk, ki smo jih lahko tudi pobliže spoznale.

Kaj pa me je najbolj navdušilo na BBMU?

Energija

Na kupu se je zbralo približno 65 blogerk, ki si delijo isti hobi: lepoto in kozmetiko. Neverjetno je, kako različne smo si med sabo, pa vendar imamo podobne, srčne želje: izražati svojo ustvarjalnost, deliti mnenje z drugimi, pomagati, osrečevati. Vse to se je čutilo na tem sproščenem dogodku in verjamem, da smo vse dobile krepko dozo zagona za nadaljnje ustvarjanje.

Predavanja

Tematike, ki segajo dlje od lepote in nam razkrivajo delček sebe in ideala, ki ga lahko dosežemo. Predavateljice so nas opogumile in vzpodbudile k ustvarjanju, vendar pa so nas tudi opozorile na moč in odgovornost, ki jo kot blogerke imamo do svojih bralcev ali gledalcev. Kaj je dejansko pomembno pri bloganju? Iskrenost in zvestoba – sebi pa tudi sledilcem.

Nova poznanstva

Lepo je spoznati osebe, avtorice bloga, ki jih tako rada berem. Z veseljem sem poklepetala s soudeleženkami konference, poglobila »stara« poznanstva in spletla nova. Upam, da se še kdaj srečamo – morda prej kot naslednje leto na 4. BBMU.

Rada bi se še enkrat zahvalila Niki za dobro organizacijo tako obsežnega projekta – koordinacija številnih vpletenih vsekakor ni mačji kašelj, skrb za gladek potek celotnega dogajanja pa je še težja. Nika, kapo dol!
