John Frieda: Brilliant Brunette Lighter glow

JF1

Že zelo dolgo si nisem las barvala in počasi sem bila željna spremembe. Ravno takrat sem naletela na oceno tega izdelka pri eno vlogerki na Youtube-u. Hitro sem začela raziskovat in odločila sem se, da ga bom preizkusila.

It’s been a while since I dyed my hair and I was slowly eager to change that. Just then I came across a review on this product by a Youtube vlogger. I quickly began to explore and decided to try it out.

JF2

Posvetlitveni tretma je pakiran v škatli z navodili. Sama embalaža je iz dveh delov, iz razvijalca in iz aktivatorja, ki ju ščiti varovalo in še dodaten pokrov. Produkt je na eni strani prozoren, rahlo rumenkast, na drugi mlečno bel. Varovalo odrtgamo in izdelek izstisnemo na dlan, pomešamo ju ter nanesemo na mokre lase.

The lightening treatment is packed in a box with instructions. The packaging itself is a dual-pump applicator, one side developer and the other side activator, that are protected with a cover and a lid. The product is transparent on one side, a bit yellowy, on the other milky white. We tear off the cover and squirt the product on our palm, mix them together and apply to wet hair.

Ista slika kot zgoraj a s filtrom, da se razlika boljše vidi. / Same picture as above but with filter so the difference is more noticeable.

Imam srednje dolge lase in porabila sem celo tubo, saj sem želela dobro premazati lase. Tretma se na laseh tudi delno speni, tako da ga je lažje raporedit po laseh. Jaz sem naredila isto, kot če bi lase umivala. Izdelek sem ga pustila delovati 5 minut. Nato sem si lase sprala z vodo in nadaljevala s šamponom in balzamom.

I have medium long hair and I used the whole tube, because I wanted to coat my hair really well. The treatment foams a bit on the hair, so it’s easier to spread it over the hair. I did the same as if I was washing my hair. I left the product on my hair for 5 minutes. Then I rinsed my hair with water and continued with shampoo and conditioner.

Ker izdelek vsebuje vodikov peroksid ima seveda tudi precej agresiven vonj, po barvi za lase. Frieda trdi, da bi naj tretma po eni uporabi posvetil lase za 1 odtenek. Ker so moji lasje res zelo temni, sem pričakovala res minimalno spremembo. Tako je tudi bilo. Lase mi je posvetlil le malenkost, najbolj opazno je bilo na soncu. Mogoče mi jih niti ni toliko posvetlilo, le spremenilo odtenek. Ker sem želela lase še malenkost bolj posvetliti, sem kupila še en tretma in ga znova uporabila po kakšnih dveh tednih. Tokrat razlike nisem opazila. Resda je slikano pod lučjo, v kopalnici, ne na naravni svetlobi a vseeno. Razlike po mojem mnenju ni bilo. Lasje so se sicer enakomerno posvetlili.

Since the product contains hydrogen peroxide it also has an aggressive scent, like hair color. Frieda states that the treatment is supposed to lighten the hair for 1 shade. Because my hair is really dark, I expected a minimal change. And so it was. The hair lightened just a little bit, it was mostly noticeable on the sun. Maybe it didn’t even lighten my hair, just changed the shade. Because I wanted to lighten them a bit more, I bought one more treatment and used it again after about two weeks. This time I didn’t notice a difference. It is however pictured under a light, in the bathroom, not in natural light but still. In my opinion there was no difference. The hair was evenly lighter though.

Priznam, da sem pričakovala mogoče malenkost večjo razliko, predvsem po drugem tretmaju. Lase mi ni skoraj nič poškodovalo, saj vedno uporabim negovalni balzam, tako da neke razlike nisem opazila. Lasje so le rahlo suhi potem, ko jih po tretmaju umijemo s šamponom, po nanosu balzama je spet vse pod kontrolo.

I admit that I expected a bigger change, especially after the second treatment. It didn’t damage my hair, because I always use a nourishing conditioner, so I didn’t see any difference. The hair was dry only right after the treatment, when I washed them with the shampoo, after applying the conditioner thing were back to normal.

IMG_7342

Levo/Left: Pred tretmaji/Before treatments,     Desno/Right: Po drugem tretmaju/After second treatment

V isti liniji je sta še šampon in balzam za posvetlitev, ampak se bojim, da bi mi preveč poškodovalo lase, zato se nisem odločila za to. Izdelek sem kupila pri nas v Mullerju in zanj odštela okoli 12€. Glede na to, da barva za lase stane manj, se mi mogoče zdi predrago, po drugi strani pa je nanos izredno lahek in skoraj ne morete narediti nič narobe.

There is a shampoo and conditioner in the same line for lightening, but I’m afraid that it would damage my hair too much, so I didn’t decide to try them. I bought the product in Muller (Slovenia) and paid around 12€. Given the fact that hair color costs less, I think this may be too expensive, on the other hand, the application is super easy and you almost can’t do anything wrong.

Mogoče boste tisti z malo svetlejšimi lasmi, kot jih imam sama, bolj zadovoljni z rezultatom oziroma se vam bo bolj splačal nakup. Razmišljam pa o šamponu za posvetlitev od OGX (Organix) Lemon highlights. Ste že poskusili katerega od izdelkov Brilliant Brunette od John Friede? Kaj pa kakšne druge izdelke s podobnim namenom?

People with a bit lighter brown hair than me, may be more satisfied with the results or would benefit more from it. I’m thinking about a shampoo for lightening from OGX (Organix) Lemon highlights. Did you try any of the Brilliant Brunette products from John Frieda? What about any other products with a similar purpose?

Melvita: Obogateno šipkovo olje ROSE +

melvitacoll

Nikoli nisem marala olj za obraz. V preteklosti sem imela le enega (dr. Hauschka) in ga nisem marala. To olje pa me je res pritegnilo, saj se mi je zdelo, da bi lahko bilo dobro. Že dejstvo, da bi naj bilo “suho” olje, sem mu štela v plus.

I never liked beauty oils. In the past I only had one (dr. Hauschka) and I didn’t like it. This oil really attracted me, because I though it might be good. The fact, that it is supposed to be a “dry” oil, was a big plus.

IMG_7270

Embalaža je steklena s kapalko, kar se mi zdi odlično, saj imamo res dobro kontrolo nad količino, ki jo želimo. Kapalka dobro deluje, pokrov dobro tesni. Olje je v rožnati škatli in jaz sem jo shranila, saj veliko potujem sem in tja in sem tako bolj pomirjena, da se ne bo nič polomilo. Čeprav je embalaž zelo lepa, pa ni najboljša za potovanja, saj se v primeru, da je ne zavarujemo dobro, lahko polomi.  Embalaže je, kot sem že omenila, zelo šik in meni je všeč.

The packaging is glass with a dropper, which I find great, because we have great control over the amount that we want. The dropper works nicely, the lid closes tightly. The oil is in a pinkish box, that I kept, because I travel  a lot and this way I’m a bit more sure, that it will not break. Although the packaging is really nice it’s not best for traveling, because in case we don’t protect it well, it can break. The packaging is, as I already mentioned, really chic and I like it.

IMG_7271

Preidimo na olje. Ker sem obupna v opisovanju vonjev, bom tudi to težko opisala. Olje vsebuje obogateno šipkovo olje, zato sem tudi pričakovala bolj cvetlični vonj. Meni diši sicer cvetlično, ampak nežno cvetlično, rahlo bolj sveže. Če potegnem črto lahko rečem, da meni osebno diši zelo lepo. 😀 Nisem uporabna, saj vem. 😀

Let’s move on to the oil. Because I’m terrible in describing scents, I’m going to have a problem describing this one as well. The oil contains enriched rosehip oil so I expected a more flowery scent. To me it does smell flowery, but in a delicate way, a little bit fresher. If I draw a line, I can say that to me it smells really nice. 😀 I’m not useful, I know. 😀

IMG_7273

Olje sem prvič nanesla na vlažno kožo in mi ni bilo všeč, saj se olje ni skoraj nič vpilo in koža je ostala mastna. Tega pa ne prenesem. Zato sem drugič olje nanesla na suho kožo in šele takrat mi je postalo malo bolj všeč. Olje se še vedno ne vpije popolnoma, ampak recimo da se vpije 70-80%. Torej nekaj olja ostane na koži, ampak to me toliko ne moti. Jaz olje vedno uporabim zvečer. Sama nanesem na obraz 3 kapljice, na čelo in na vsako lice po eno. Če imate bolj suho kožo lahko mirne volje nanesete več (sama imam mešano kožo). Olje se lahko tudi uporablja kot obnavljalna maska ali pred jutranjo nego.

I first applied the oil to damp skin and I didn’t like it, because the oil barely absorbed into the skin and the skin stayed oily. And I can’t stand that. So the second time I used it, I applied it to dry skin and only then I started liking it. The oil still doesn’t completely absorb into the skin, but let’s say it absorbs 70-80%. So some oil remains on the skin, but I don’t mind that. I always use the oil in the evening. I apply 3 drops to my face, on the forehead and one on each cheek. If you have more dry skin you can easily apply more (I have combination skin type). You can use the oil as a repairing mask or before the morning care routine as well.

IMG_7276

Melvita trdi, da bi naj olje navlažilo in obnovilo kožo, gube in gubice bi naj bile videti manjše, koža gladkejša. Lahko rečem, da je koža res lepša, gladkejša, da dobro nahrani in navlaži kožo, tudi obnovi jo hitro (predvsem po kakih aknah). Uporabljam ga vsak večer in moja koža je dejansko veliko bolj zdrava, sijoča, veliko manj “izbruhov” imam na obrazu. Po dobrih dveh tednih uporabe sem se popolnoma zaljubila v tole olje in si več življenja ne predstavljam brez. Ker porabim res samo 3 kapljice na dan mi bo 30ml olja dovolj za celo leto, zato tudi cena, ki je 37,60€ ni pretirana. Olje prav tako vsebuje kompleks neolastine, ki pomaga delovati proti gubam in gubicam. Jaz olje priporočam vsem, mlajšim, starejšim, vsem, ki si želite lepo kožo. Za več informacij pojdite na Melvitino spletno stran.

Melvita states, that the oil will moisturize and restore the skin, wrinkles and fine lines will appear smaller, the skin smoother. I can say that the skin is really looking better, smoother, it moisturizes and nourishes the skin, it also repairs it fast (especially after any acne). I use it every night and my skin is actually looking healthier, shinier, with a lot less “breakouts” on my face. After two weeks of using it I totally fell in love with this oil and can’t imagine my life without it. Since I apply only 3 drops a day, the 30ml of oil will last me the whole year, so the price, which is 37,60€ is not that much. The oil also contains complex neolastine, that helps prevent wrinkles and fine lines. I recommend this oil to everyone, young, older, anyone that want’s beautiful skin.

Makeup Geek: Unexpected in Vintage

IMG_7237

Kot že veste, sem velika nadvušenka nad Makeup Geek senčili, saj so izredno kvalitetna, cena pa je sprejemljiva, moja zbirka pa se počasi veča. 🙂 Tokrat sem se odločila oceniti in opisati Unexpected in Vintage.

As you already know, I’m a big fan of Makeup Geek eyeshadows, because they’re great quality, the price is acceptable and my collection is slowly increasing. 🙂 This time I decided to review Unexpected and Vintage.

Makeup Geek trdi, da je Unexpected mat svetlo rožnato rjavo senčilo. Dokler nisem prebrala opisa na njihovi strani, sem vedno govorila, da je to senčilo svetlo lila z dodatkom sive, ampak sedaj vidim, da ima res tople podtone. Senčilo sem kupila, saj sem potrebovala eno svetlo senčilo s pridihom vijolične (rožnate, lila) za prehodno senčilo. Senčilo torej vedno uporabljam kot prehodno barvo, nikoli ga še nisem uporabila na veki. Senčilo je ravno prav mehko, pigmentirano (kolikor je pač lahko, saj je svetlo), se lepo nanaša in blenda.

IMG_7238

Makeup Geek states that Unexpected is a matte pale pink brown eyeshadow. Until I read the description on their page, I always said that this is a light lilac with a hint of gray, but now I see that it really has warm undertones. I bought this eyeshadow, because I needed a light eyeshadow with a hint of purple (pink, lilac) for a transitional shade. I always use this shadow as a transition color, I never used it on the lid. The eyeshadow is soft enough, pigmented (as it can be, because it’s light), applies and blends nicely.

Vintage je po mojem mnenju starejša sestra od Unexpected in ravno zaradi tega ju ponavadi tudi uporabljam skupaj. Makeup geek trdi, da je to srednje rjavo mat senčilo z vijoličnim (slezenastim) podtonom. Senčilo ponavadi uporabim za poglobitev barve v zunanjem kotičku očesa ali pod spodnjo veko. Občasno ga nanesem tudi čez celo veko, ko želim zadimljene oči malo drugače. Senčilo je ravno prav mehko, pigmentirano in se lepo nanaša in blenda.

IMG_7237a

Vintage is in my opinion the older sister from Unexpected and that’s why I usually use them together. Makeup Geek states that it’s a medium brown with mauve undertones and a matte finish. I usually use the eyeshadow to deepen the outer corner of the eye or on the lower lid. Occasionally I apply it across the entire lid, when I want a smokey eye with a twist. The eyeshadow is soft enough, pigmented, applies and blends nicely.

Če ste brali prejšnje objave o Makeup Geek senčilih, potem veste, da senčila ne pridejo v svoji embalaži, ampak boste potrebovale kakšno magnetno paleto, kjer jih boste hranili. Cena enega senčila je 6,30€ na Beauty Bay strani, kjer sem jih tudi sama kupila. Makeup Geek je prav tako prišel ven z 18 novimi senčili, ki so tudi že na voljo na Beauty Bay strani.

If you read my previous Makeup Geek eyeshadow posts, then you know, that the eyeshadows don’t come in a packaging, just a pan, so you will need a magnetic palette to store them in. The price of one eyeshadow is 6,30€ on Beauty Bay, where I bought them. Makeup Geek also came out with 18 new eyeshadows, that are already available on the Beauty Bay site.

MAC: Haute & Naugthy lash mascara

Macmascara1

To maskaro sem dobila od sestre za rojstni dan (hvala sis :*) in jo na začetku nisem uporabljala, ker sem hotela porabiti tisto, ki je bila takrat v uporabi. Mučilo me je, da bi jo poskusila, saj sem mislila, da ima maskara dve krtački, eno v drugi. :O Da, eno v drugi. Od MAC-a sem prej uporabljala Zoom Lash maskaro, ki mi je vedno bila všeč, ampak ker se takrat še ni dalo kupiti MAC-a v Grazu, se mi je ni dalo naročevati na Ebayu.

I got this mascara from my sister for my birthday (thanks sis :*) and in the beginning I didn’t use it, because I wanted to use the one that was then in use. It really bothered me to try it out, because I thought it had two brushes, one in the other. :O Yes, one in the other. I used Zoom Lash mascara from MAC before and I always liked it, but you couldn’t buy MAC in Graz then and I wasn’t into ordering it on Ebay.

macmascara2

Embalaža je črna z belim napisom, pokrov pa je pink ter vijoličen z bleščicami. Meni je všeč. Maskara je črna in ima v bistvu eno krtačko. Krtačka ni gumijasta (teh načeloma ne maram), ampak je tipična z daljšimi ščetinami. MAC navaja, da ima maskara sistem dvojnega brisanja in tako ponuja definirane trepalnice ali trepalnice polne volumna. Torej odvisno kako jo uporabimo. Prilagam slike za lažje razumevanje.

The packaging is black with white lettering, the lid is pink and purple with glitter. I like it. The mascara is black and it actually has only one brush. The brush is not rubbery (I don’t like those), but it’s typical with longer bristles. MAC states that this mascara, with a dual-wiper system, offers defined or voluminous lashes. So it depends on how we use it. I’m adding pictures for easier understanding.

IMG_7214

Maskara je precej tekoča, na krtački jo je tudi precej, saj ko potegnemo krtačko skozi paličico, se le-ta obriše ob rob paličice in se tam tudi nabere največ produkta. Maskara se ne drobi ali odpada, trepalnice lepo poudari. Ker je bolj mokra se trepalnice rade zlepijo skupaj, zato jaz vedno naknadno uporabim “prvo krtačko”, ki nima skoraj nič produkta na sebi, in grem tako še enkrat čez trepalnice, da jih razčešem. Opazila sem, da maskara da veliko več volumna kot dolžine, tako da če imate kratke trepalnice, je mogoče ne bi priporočala. Sama imam precej dolge, tako da me to ne moti.

The mascara it quite liquid, there’s a lot of product on the brush, because when we pull the brush through the stick, the mascara wipes itself on the edges of the stick and most of the product accumulates there. The mascara doesn’t crumble or flake, it emphasizes the lashes nicely. Because it is more moist it tends to clump the lashes, so I always use the “first brush” after, which has almost no product on it, and go over the lashes one more time to comb them. I noticed that the mascara gives more volume than length, so if you have shorter lashes I wouldn’t recommend it. I have pretty long lashes so I don’t mind.

macmascara4

Meni je maskara všeč, ampak ne vem če bi si jo še kupila kdaj, saj vseeno rada poskusim kaj novega. Kupite jo lahko v Douglasu v Avstriji, za njo pa boste odšteli 23,95€ za 9g. Sliko maskare na trepalnicah bom objavila tekom tedna.

I like the mascara, but I don’t know if I would buy it again, because I always like to try out new things. You can buy it in Douglas in Austria and you will pay 23,95€ for 9g. I will post the pictures of the mascara on my lashes during this week.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 😉

 

Lush: Blackberry bath bomb

Ta kopalna bombica je po mojem mnenju v prodaji že celo večnost, jaz pa sem jo kupila šele letos. Bombica je vijolična in na vrhu je vtisnjen napis BOMB. Moja je sicer imela par belo-vijoličnih pikic, ampak mislim, da je to bilo zato, ker sem jo slučajno zmočila in niso take ponavadi.

This bath bomb, in my opinion, has been sold in Lush for ages and I finally bought it this year.  The bomb is purple with the word BOMB imprinted on the top. Mine had a few white-purple dots, but I think it was because it got wet and they usually don’t look like that.

IMG_7191

Dišala je zelo močno in po prejšnji (ocena tukaj), ko sem bila razočarana, mi je bilo všeč, da lepo diši. Že samo ime pove, da diši po robidah, vendar pa je vonj robid pomešan tudi z vonjem bergamotke. Voda se obarva vijolično a je še vedno prosojna. Video kopalne bombice v akciji lahko vidite spodaj.

It smelled really strong and after the last one (review here), when I was disappointed, I liked that it smelled so nice. The name itself let’s us know that it smells like blackberries, but the blackberry scent is mixed with the scent of bergamot. The water stains purple, but it’s still transparent. Video of the bath bomb in action can be seen below.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, parfum, olje bergamotke, olje kadila, barvilo 18050, barvilo 42045.

Kar mi je bilo všeč in kaj imam rada je to, da me v sredini bombice preseneti sporočilo. Tokrat je pisalo Boom Boom! Super bi blo, če bi Lush natisnil na primer 100 različnih sporočil in jih naključno dajal v kopalne krogle, tako da nikoli ne bi vedeli kaj bi dobili. 😉 Kože mi ni izsušila, saj vsebuje tudi olja, kar je vedno velik plus. Koža je bila prav tako lepo odišavljena po kopeli, vonj se je obdržal kakšne tri ure.

What I liked and what I love is when I’m surprised by a note, hidden in the middle of the bomb. This time it said Boom Boom! It would be great if Lush would print for example a 100 different messages and randomly place them in the bath bombs, so you would never know, what you would get. 😉 It didn’t dry out my skin, because it contains oils as well, which is always a big plus. The skin was nicely perfumed after the bath, the scent lingered for about three hours.

IMG_7198

Vse je bilo super dokler nisem stopila iz banje, saj se je na površini vode nabralo olje (olje bergamotke in/ali olje kadila) in se posledično oprijelo roba banje. Še slabše je bilo, ko sem poskušala to zdrgnit, saj samo z vodo ni šlo. Po sproščujoči kopeli pa se mi res ni dalo še banje čistiti. Tako, da ji dajem to v minus. Ne vem, če se to vedno dogaja ali je bilo kaj narobe z mojo? Kakšne so vaše izkušnje?

Everything was great until I stepped out of the bathtub, because oil accumulated on the water surface (bergamot oil and/or frankincense oil) and subsequently clinged to the edge of the tub. It was even worse when I tried to rub it off, because it wouldn’t  with water only. After a relaxing bath I really didn’t want to clean the bathtub. So that was a minus. I don’t know if this always happens or there was something wrong with mine? What are your experiences?

H&M: Dry Conditioner

HMCollage

Tale H&M suhi balzam za lase se mi je zdel izredno zanimiv in sem se odločila, da ga bom preizkusila. Suhi balzam je v pločevinki na sprej, kot lak za lase ali suhi šampon. Vsebuje 250ml. Embalaža je modra, pisana, z belimi robom zgoraj in napisom v bež kvadratu. Meni je všeč.

This H&M dry conditioner seemed very interesting so I decided to try it out. The dry conditioner comes in a spray can, just like a hair spray or dry shampoo. It contains 250ml. The packaging is blue, colorful, with a white edge above and inscription in a beige square. I like it.

IMG_6642

Čeprav na navodilih piše, da je za uporabo za osvežitev las med pranji, sem ga le enkrat uporabila na tak način. Nanesli bi ga naj na spodnjo polovico las. H&M prav tako trdi, da balzam vsebuje arganovo olje ter ekstrakt avokada za sijoče in svileno gladke lase. Pred uporabo ga je potrebno dobro pretresti.

Although the instructions say to use it to  refresh the hair between washing, I used it only once that way. You are supposed to apply it on the lower half of the hair. H&M also states that the conditioner contains argan oil and avocado extract for shiny and silky smooth hair. Shake well before use.

IMG_7176

Sprej je brezbarven in diši lepo sveže. Mene vonj spominja na papajo, vendar sem zelo slaba pri opisovanju vonjev. 😀 Jaz sem ga prvič uporabila na sveže umitih laseh in balzam je dal lasem lep sijaj in lepo jih je odišavil, ampak lasje so bili tako ali tako umiti. Potem sem pa en dan uporabila suhi šampon in lasje so ponavadi po uporabi suhega šampona mat, torej brez tistega zdravega sijaja in včasih, če nanesem preveč suhega šampona, tudi rahlo sivkasti. In takrat sem se odločila nanesti direktno na lasišče še suhi balzam in zadeva je delovala. Lasje so izgledali  sveže umiti, sijoči.

The spray is colorless and smells fresh. The scent reminds me of papaya, but I’m very bad at describing scents. 😀 The first time I used it was on freshly washed hair and the conditioner gave the hair a nice shine and fresh scent, but the hair was washed anyway. Then one day I used my dry shampoo and the hair is usually matte, without the healthy shine, after using it and sometimes if I apply too much it also turns a bit greyish. In that moment I decided to use my dry conditioner directly on the scalp and it worked. The hair looked freshly washed, shiny.

IMG_7179

Od takrat naprej ga uporabljam vedno v kombinaciji s suhim šamponom, saj lasje po uporabi obeh niso mastni, so pa še vedno sijoči. Jaz si več ne predstavljam uporabe suhega šampona brez tega suhega balzama. Prav tako se mi zdi, da ga je skoraj nemogoče nanesti preveč, jaz ga nanašam po občutku.

From then on I always use it in combination with the dry shampoo, because the hair isn’t greasy, but it’s still shiny after using them both. I can’t imagine using the dry shampoo without this dry conditioner anymore. Also, it seems to me, that it’s almost impossible to apply too much, I apply it by feeling.

Kupila sem ga v H&M-u v Ljubljani (City Park) in zanj odštela 7,99€. Če uporabljate suhi šampon potem ga zelooo priporočam.

I bought it in H&M in Ljubljana (City Park) and paid 7,99€ for it. I reeeally recommend it if you use dry shampoo.

Zoeva: Warm Spectrum

IMG_6842Če ste že brali kaj moj blog, potem veste, da sem zvesta uporabnica Zoeva kozmetike in čopičev. Zame so njihovi produkti med najboljšimi, pa še cene so relativno nizke. Tako sem poleg Zoeva Coral Spectrum palete z rdečili (ocena tukaj), kupila še tole Warm paleto za oči. Izbirala sem med tremi različicami (Warm, Nude in Cool) in izbrala tole, saj se mi je zdelo, da jo bom tudi največ uporabljala.

If you have already read my blog then you know that I’m a loyal user of Zoeva brushes and cosmetics. For me their products are among the best, the prices are also relatively low. So beside the Coral Spectrum blush palette (review here), I also bought the Warm Spectrum eyeshadow palette. I chose between three versions (Warm, Nude and Cool) and chose this one, because I felt that I will use it the most.

IMG_7019

Embalaža je enaka kot pri Coral Spectrum paleti, le večja. Torej mat črna kartonasta paleta, ki pride v rokavu, z bakrenim napisom na paleti. Paleta ne vsebuje ogledala. Narejena je zelo dobro, deluje trpežna.

The packaging is the same as the Coral Spectrum palette, only bigger. So it’s black matte cardboard palette that comes in a sleeve, with a copper lettering. The palette doesn’t contain a mirror. It’s made really well, seems durable.

IMG_7026

Paleta je malenkost večja, kot njihov druge palete, saj ima tudi več senčil. Ta paleta jih ima namreč 15. Vsa senčila so zelo lepo pigmentirana, ravno prav mehka in se čudovito nanašajo ter enostavno blendajo. Paleta vsebuje 10 mat senčil, 2 duochrome in 3 satenasta. Kar mi je všeč pri tej paleti je to, da vsebuje tudi mat črno senčilo, ki po mojem mnenju mora biti v vsaki paleti. Prav tako imamo tudi dovolj prehodnih barv. Satenasta senčila so izredno pigmentirana, pri nanosu imam občutek, kot da so kremna senčila, čeprav niso. Duochrome senčila bi lahko bila po mojem mnenju rahlo bolj pigmentirana, ampak vseeno so zelo lepa in zelo rada jih uprabljam.

The palette is slightly larger then their other palettes as it has more eyeshadows. This palette namely has 15 eyeshadows. All of the shadows are nicely pigmented, soft enough and apply beautifully and blend easily. The palette contains 10 matte eyeshadows, 2 duochrome and 3 satin. What I like about this palette is that it has a matte black shadow, which in my opinion should be in every palette. We also have enough transition shades. The satin shadows are highly pigmented and upon application I feel like they are cream shadows, although they are not. The duochrome shadows could be slightly more pigmented, but I still think they are really nice and I love using them.

Kot minus naj omenim to, da ima paleta 4 svetle barve, ki so si na oko zelo podobne, čeprav vseeno niso iste. Vsaka paleta, bi morala imeti tudi svetla senčila, eno mat in eno satenasto po mojem mnenju, ampak štiri se mi res zdijo preveč. Raje bi dali vmes še dve barvni senčili, mogoče kakšno rdečkasto-rjavo ali kaj bolj živega. Ta svetla senčila so tudi najbolj pudrasta, kar pa mene načeloma ne moti.

As a minus I want to mention that the palette has 4 light shadows that are really similar to the eye, although not the same. Every palette should have some light shadows, one matte and one satin in my opinion, but I feel that 4 are too much. I would prefer to have two more shadows, maybe a maroon or something brighter. These lighter eyeshadows are also more powdery, but I don’t mind.

Kljub temu se mi zdijo senčila zelo dobra, paleto veliko uporabljam in vedno najdem kakšno novo kombinacijo. En izgled sem že tudi objavila s to paleto in če ga želite videti kliknite tukaj.  Prav tako za več slik in swatchev kliknite tukaj. Paleto sem plačala 35€, naročila sem jo v spletni trgovini Douglas.at in jo prevzela ter plačala v trgovini v Avstriji.

Nevertheless I consider the eyeshadows really good, I use the palette a lot and I always find some new combinations. I have already posted a look using this palette and you can see it here. Also for more pics and swatches click here. I paid 35€ for the palette that I ordered in the Douglas.at online store and I picked it up and paid for it in the store in Austria.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Enobarven rožnat make-up

IMG_7133

Tokrat sem se odločila ustvariti enobarven make-up izgled v rožnati barvi. To pomeni da sem rožnato uporabila na očeh, licih in ustnicah. Na koncu sem bila izredno zadovoljna z izgledom. 😉

This time I decided to create a monochromatic make-up look in rose/pink color. This means that I used rose/pink on my eyes, cheeks and lips. In the end I was really satisfied with the look. 😉

Za oči sem uporabila paleto, ki je pristala tudi na seznamu mojih najljubših izdelkov v letu 2015 (seznam najdete tukaj), Urban Decay Naked 3 paleto. Tako kot prejšnjič sem obkrožila senčila, ki sem jih uporabila, številke pa označujejo vrstni red po katerem sem jih nanašala. Preden sem začela s senčili sem uporabila bazo za oči. Prav tako sem ob očesu nalepila lepilni trak, da sem dobila ostro in ravno linijo. Za lažjo predstavo prilagam sliko.

For my eyes I used a palette that was on my most favorite products in 2015 list (you can find it here), Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I circled the eyeshadows I used, the numbers indicate the order in which I applied them. Before I started with the shadows I used an eye base. I also applied some scotch tape next to my eye to get a sharp and straight line. I’m adding a picture for better understanding.

Potem sem začela s prvo, prehodno barvo, ki sem jo nanesla v in nad gubo očesa, od zunanjega do notranjega kotička očesa. To sem ponovila dvakrat oziroma dokler barva ni bilo lepo razporejena. Nato sem nanesla drugo barvo samo v gubo veke, da sem le-to malo poglobila. To sem prav tako ponavljala, dokler mi ni bil izgled všeč. Sledilo je tretje, najtemnejše senčilo, ki sem ga s ploščatim čopičem nanesla v zunanji trikotnik in potem s čopičem za blendanje vse skupaj razmazala (pazila sem, da nisem šla nad gubo veke). To sem ponavljala do željene intenzitete.

Then I started with the first, transition color, that I applied in and above my crease, from the outer to the inner corner of the eye. I repeated this twice or until the eyeshadow was nicely blended. Then came the second shadow just in the eye crease, to deepen it. I also repeated this until I liked how it looked. This was followed by the third, the deepest, eyeshadow which I applied on my outer triangle and blended with a blending brush (I was careful not to go above the crease). I repeated until the desired intensity.

Sledilo je četrto senčilo, ki pa ima goste bleščice in se suho ne nanese lepo, zato to senčilo vedno uporabim mokro. Tako je intenzivnost večja in senčilo se lepše oprime veke. To nanesem na celo veko, ne da bi šla nad gubo veke. Ker sem želela sredino veke še bolj osvetlili sem na sredino s prstom potapkala malo zlatega senčila. Ta korak lahko načeloma tudi preskočite. 🙂 Na koncu sem še nanesla svetlo mat senčilo pod obrvjo. Odstranim lepilni trak.

Next was the fourth eyeshadow that has a lot of glitter and it doesn’t apply nicely dry, so I always use this one wet. The intensity is greater and the shadow sticks to the eyelid better this way. I apply it to the whole lid, but not above the crease. Because I wanted to illuminate the center of the eyelid even more I patted some gold shadow in the center using my finger. This step may in principle be skipped. 🙂 In the end I applied the light matte shadow under the brow bone. I remove the tape.

Ker sta bili dve senčili z bleščicami sem predel pod očmi pobrisala s kozmetičnim robcem, da sem odstranila bleščice, ki so padle na obraz. Nato sem nadaljevala s tekočim pudrom, korektorjem, pudrom v prahu. Nato sem nanesla še bronzer, Catrice Luminizing bronzer in rdečilo, ki je bilo v tem primeru tudi rožnato in sicer Benefit Bella Bamba. Za osvetlitev obraza sem uporabila The Balm The Manizer Sisters paleto, ki sem jo ocenila tukaj. Uredila sem še obrvi kot ponavadi.

Because two of the eyeshadows had glitter, I used a cosmetics wipe to clean the glitter fallout off my face. Then I continued with the foundation, concealer, loose powder. I applied the bronzer, Catrice Luminizing bronzer and the blush, which in this case was also pink, namely Benefit Bella Bamba. To highlight my face I used The Balm The Manizer Sisters palette, that I reviewed here. I did my eyebrows as usual.

Nato sem se vrnila na oči in na spodnjo veko nanesla sedmo senčilo, v notrnji kotiček spodnje veke pa malo zadnjega, osmega senčila. Nanesla sem seveda še maskaro oziroma Stila duo, ki sem ga ocenila tukaj. Na ustnice sem nanesla Essence longlasting lipliner v odtenku Sweetheart, ki je res odlična barvica za ustnice. Tudi to sem ocenila in oceno najdete tukaj.

I then returned to my eyes and applied the seventh shadow to my lower lid, in the inner corner I put a bit of the eighth eyeshadow. Of course I also applied some mascara, I used the Stila duo, that I reviewed here. On my lips I applied the Essence Longlasting lipliner in the shade Sweetheart, which is really a great lipliner. I also reviewed this one and you can find the review here.

In to je moj enobarven make-up izgled. Kako se vam zdi? Vam je všeč? 🙂

And this is my monochromatic make-up look. What do you think? Do you like it? 🙂
