Makeup Geek: Barcelona Beach in Latte

Kako leto sem že gledala tuje blogerke, kako so hvalile in veselo uporabljale Makeup Geek senčila. Na internetu sem iskala možnosti kako priti do njih in potem sem en dan dobila e-pošto od Beauty Bay strani in na moje veselje so dobili njihova senčila. Takoj sem oddala prvo naročilo štirih senčil in med njimi sta bili tudi Barcelona Beach in Latte. Senčki sem kupila z namenom, da jih bom uporabljala kot prehodno barvo v gubi veke.

I was watching foreign bloggers for about a year happily using and praising the Makeup Geek eyeshadows. I was looking for ways to get them and then one day I got an e-mail from Beauty Bay and I was happy to see that they got their eyeshadows. I immediately ordered four eyeshadows and among them were Barcelona Beach and Latte. I bought the eyeshadows with the intention to use them as transition colors in my crease.

Barvi sta sicer na prvi pogled izredno podobni, ampak Latte je malo bolj temna in s toplimi podtoni, Barcelona Beach pa ima hladne podtone. Torej v mojih očeh popolnoma različni senčki. 🙂

The colors are really similar at first glance, but Latte is deeper and with warm undertones, Barcelona Beach has cool undertones. So in my eyes totally different eyeshadows. 🙂

Makeup Geek Barcelona Beach senčko opisuje kot srednje peščeno mat barvo in mislim, da je dobro opisana. Latte je opisana kot srednje rjava mat barva. Latte ima po mojem mnenju kar nekaj rdečega pigmenta not, kar daje senčki toploto in globino. Obe senčki sta mi super všeč, uporabljam ju vedno ko si naličim oči, Barcelono Beach, ko imam bolj “hladne” sence na očeh, Latte pa ko uporabim “tople” sence. Senčki občasno tudi pomešam in ju tako uporabim. Barcelona Beach je rahlo bolj mehka in kremasta kot Latte a kljub temu sta obe senčki izredno kvalitetni in preprosti za uporabo. Barcelona Beach ima malo sijaja, čeprav je v osnovi mat barva.

Makeup Geek describes Barcelona Beach as medium sand shade with a matte finish and I think that’s a good description. Latte is described as matte medium brown. Latte has in my opinion some red pigments which gives the shadow warmth and depth. I love both of the eyeshadows and I use them every time I put make-up on my eyes, Barcelona Beach when I have “cool” shadows on my eyes and Latte when I use “warm” eyeshadows. Occasionally I mix them and use them that way. Barcelona Beach is a bit more soft and creamy then Latte but nevertheless both eyeshadows are great quality and easy to use. Barcelona Beach has a bit of shine to it although it’s still a matte color.

Embalaža je minimalistična, kar pomeni da dobite samo senčko v metalni embalaži, ki pride v majhni kartonasti kuverti. Sama s tem nisem imela težav, ker imam Z paleto že zelo dolgo, tako da sem senčke dala tja, ampak imejte v mislih, da boste morale kupiti še neko paleto, kjer boste sence hranile. Prav tako za Makeup Geek ne potrebujete magnetnih nalepk, saj se same “primejo” za paleto. Za senčko sem dala 6,60€ kar se mi za tako kvaliteto ne zdi veliko, saj lahko kupite eno po eno senčko in si sestavite svojo idealno paleto. Senčke in Z paleto lahko kupite na Beauty Bayu. Obsežne swatche si lahko ogledate tukaj. Kmalu bom ocenila in poslikala tudi druge barve. Imate ve kakšne Makeup Geek senčke, katere priporočate ali si jih želite? Pustite mi komentar spodaj.

The packaging is minimalistic which means it comes in a metal pan and the pan in a small cardboard envelope. I didn’t have any problems with that because I own a Z palette already so I put the eyeshadows in there, but have in mind that you will have to buy some kind of palette to store them in. You don’t need magnet stickers for the Makeup Geek eyeshadows because the pans “stick” to the palette on their own. I paid 6,60€ for one which is OK for a shadow in this quality and you can buy one by one and assemble your perfect palette. You can buy the eyeshadows and the Z palette on Beauty Bay.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 🙂
