Semi-Sweet Chocolate bar make-up look

IMG_7995

Kot ponavadi, sem vam tudi tokrat, po oceni Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate bar palete (ocena tukaj), pripravila izgled z uporabo prav te palete. Ustvarila sem make-up izgled, ki ga najbolj pogosto poustvarjam in ki je zame bolj dnevno-dramatičen. Upam, da vam bo všeč.

As usual I prepared a make-up look after reviewing the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate bar palette (review here), using that palette. I did the make-up look that I create most of the time and that is more of a daily-dramatic look for me. I hope you’ll like it.

IMG_8392

Najprej sem oko pripravila z bazo. Prvo senčilo, ki sem ga uporabila je bilo Mousse (1.), ki mi je služilo kot prehodna barva, prav tako pa sem ga potegnila v gubo veke. To sem ponovila 2-3x. Nato sem nadaljevala z rahlo ožjim blending čopičem in nanesla Peanut Butter (2.) v samo gubo veke, da sem dala veki malo več dimenzije, več raznolikosti. Pazila sem, da nisem šla previsoko. Tudi to sem ponovila parkrat. Ko sta bili senčili lepo zblendani, razmazani, sem nadaljevala.

First I prepared my eyelid with a base. The first eyeshadow I used was Mousse (1.) that served as an transitional shade and I also pulled it lower in the eye crease. I repeated this step 2-3x. Then I continued with a more narrow blending brush and applied Peanut Butter (2.) only in the crease to give the eyelid a little more dimension, more diversity. I was careful not to go too high. I also repeated this a few times. When the eyeshadows were nicely blended I continued.

Nato sem v zunanji kotiček za poglobitev nanesla malo Truffled senčila (3.) s ploščatim čopičem in ga s čopičem za blendanje razmazala. To sem ponovila dvakrat. Nadaljevala sem s ploščatim čopičem, s katerim sem nanesla Bon Bon (4.) čez celo veko a le do očesne gube. S tanjšim čopičem za bledanje in z Peanut Butter senčilom sem popravila prehod med senčili.

Then I applied a little bit of Truffled eyeshadow (3.) with a flat brush on my outer eye corner for a little depth and blended it with a blending brush. I repeated this step twice. I continued with a flat brush that I used to apply Bon Bon (4.) over my whole eyelid but only up to the crease. I went over with a more narrow blending brush and Penut Butter eyeshadow to fix the transitions between the eyeshadows.

TFMCollage

Na spodnjo veko sem najprej na notranji rob nanesla Catrice Kohl Kajal v odtenku Blue I Know You? (moder svinčnik), nato pa tik ob trepalnicah s tankim čopičem razmazala črtalo z Blueberry swirl (5.) senčilom. Da sem modro senčilo malo ublažila sem na spodnjo veko nanesla še Peanut Butter senčilo. V notranje kotičke in pod obrvi sem nanesla senčilo Butter Pecan (6.). ter na spodnje in zgornje trepalnice nanesla maskaro.

First I applied Catrice Kohl Kajal in Blue I Know You? (blue pencil) on my waterline and then blended it together with Blueberry Swirl eyeshadow (5.) and a pencil brush right under my lashes. To tone the blue down a little I applied some Peanut Butter on the lower eyelid. In my inner corners and under my eyebrows I applied Butter Pecan (6.) and mascara to the lower and upper eyelashes.

IMG_8374

Če bi tale izgled uporabila zvečer, bi definitivno nanesla še črno ali rjavo črtalo in dodala umetne trepalnice, za malo več dramatičnosti, tako pa sem črtalo in trepalnice izpustila. Seznam ostalih izdelkov, ki sem jih uporabila je spodaj. Vam je bil ta look všeč?

If I would use this look for nigh time I would definitely apply black or brown eyeliner and add some false eyelashes to be more dramatic, but this time I didn’t use them. List of the other products I used is down below. Did you like this look?

Too Faced: Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar

IMG_7989

Dolgo sem razmišljala ali naj ocenim to paleto, ker ni novi produkt in marsikomu ne bo zanimiva, ker je ogromno ocen že na spletu, ampak ker je to hitro postala moja najljubša paleta, sem se odločila, da jo vseeno ocenim in delim svojo kratko oceno z vami.

I was thinking weather I should review this palette for some time now because it’s not a new product and many people wouldn’t find it interesting given the fact that there are a lot of reviews of it online already, but because it quickly became my favorite palette I decided to share my short review with you.

Paleta je pakirana v kartonasto škatlo z napisom spredaj ter kratkim opisom in seznamom senčil na zadnji strani. V škatli se prav tako skriva majhna zloženka s tremi primeri make-up izgledov. Sama paleta je v metalni embalaži v obliki čokoladne tablice ter rjave barve. Res čudovita embalaža, še posebej če imate radi čokolado. Še večje presenečenje je vonj in sicer paleta diši po vaniliji/čokoladi, kar je posledica tega, da senčila vsebujejo kakav v prahu. Res čudovito diši in tudi sama dajem paleti to v plus. V notranjosti se skriva manjše ogledalo in pa 16 čudovitih senčil.

The palette is packaged in a cardboard box with inscription on the front and a short description and a list of the eyeshadows on the back. There is also a small leaflet with three make-up looks hiding in the box. The palette itself is in a metal packaging formed as a brown chocolate bar. The packaging is gorgeous, especially if you like chocolate. An even bigger surprise is the smell, namely the palette smells like vanilla/chocolate which is due to the fact that the eyeshadows contain cocoa powder. It really smells great and for me that is a plus. The inside hides a small mirror and 16 beautiful eyeshadows.

IMG_7995

Med senčili so tako mat, satenasta ter bleščičasta senčila, vse od kremnih odtenkov do karamelnih, rjavih in celo modro ter rožnato sta notri. Senčila so v veliki večini super pigmentirana ter ravno prav mehka in se lepo blendajo. Predvsem mat senčila pri dotiku s čopičem dvignejo malo prahu, kar pa se ponavadi dogaja pri dobrih mat senčilih. Edino senčilo, ki ni pigmentirano je Pink Sugar, ki da samo bleščice od sebe, ampak tudi to velikokrat uporabim v notrajnem kotičku očesa z vlažnim čopičem. Najljubši senčili sta mi Peanut Butter (uporabljam ga v gubi veke) ter Truffled (vedno ga uporabim v zunanjem kotičku za zatemnitev).

There are matte, satin and shimmery shadows ranging from creamy shades to caramel, browns and there are even a blue and a rosey shadow in there. The eyeshadows have mostly a great pigment and are soft enough and blend easily. Mostly the matte shades kick a little bit of powder up when you put the brush in which usually happens with good matte eyeshadows. The only shade that isn’t pigmented is Pink Sugar which is basically just glitter but I still use it often in the inner corner of the eye with a wet brush. My favorite eyeshadows are Peanut Butter (I use it in the crease) and Truffled (I always use it on the outer corner for deepening).

TooFacedCollage

Meni paleta s to kombinacijo senčil ponuja veliko različnih opcij, tako od svetlih dnevnih do zadimljenih večernih izgledov. Odkar sem jo kupila potujem edino še s to paleto, ne glede na to kam grem. Sploh mi ni žal, da sem si jo kupila in ne znam si predstavljati življenja brez nje (res sem pretirano teatralna). Paleto priporočam predvsem tistim, ki imate radi rjava senčila. Paleto sem kupila v Sephori v Italiji in zanjo odštela 45€, se pa najde tudi na internetu v različnih spletnih trgovinah.

The palette with this combination of eyeshadows gives me a lot of different options, from bright daily to smokey night looks. Since I bought it it’s the only palette I travel with no matter where I go. I don’t regret buying it and I can’t imagine my life without it (I’m such a drama queen). I recommend the palette especially to those that like brown shades. I bought the palette in Sephora in Italy and paid 45€ for it but you can find it online in various online stores as well.

V naslednji objavi vam bom pripravila svoj najljubši make-up izgled z uporabo Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate palete, tukaj pa lahko najdete še veliko več slik in swatchev.

In the next post I will prepare my favorite make-up look using the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate palette and here you can find more pictures and swatches.

H&M: Dead Sea Mud Mask

hmmaskaCollage

Tole masko za obraz sem kupila ob prejšnjem obisku H&M trgovine v Ljubljani. Takrat sem tudi kupila H&M Charcoal and pumice masko (masko z ogljem in plovcem), ki sem jo ocenila že tukaj. Tokrat pa sem poskusila drugo masko, ki sem jo kupila in sicer z blatom mrtvega morja za mešano kožo.

I bought this mask the last time I visited the H&M store in Ljubljana. I bought the H&M Charcoal and pumice mask that I reviewed here then as well. This time I decided to try the other one I bought, namely the one with the dead sea mud for combination skin. 

Maske so pakirane v majhnem lončku za enkratno uporabo. Maske so v lončkih različnih barv, ta le bila v oranžnem, vendar pa maska notri ni bila oranžna kot sem pričakovala. Zraven so priložena navodila, ki so natisnjena na kartonasti zloženki v kateri je lonček. Embalaža je torej dobro zamišljena za enkratno uporabo. Sama maska je svetlo pastelno zelene barve. Maska ni čisto gladka, notri so nekakšni mikro delci, ki pa niso bili uporabni za piling in zato zame čisto odveč, saj jih je bilo tudi relativno malo notri. Ko sem masko odprla mi je v obraz butnil vonj po moški kolonjski vodi. Šokirana sem bila, saj takega vonja nisem pričakovala. Vonj je bil izrazito močan in precej neprimeren za masko za obraz.

The masks are nicely packed in a small pot for a single use.The masks are in different colored pots, this one was in an orange one but the mask inside wasn’t orange as I expected. We also get instructions, which are printed on the cardboard that holds the pot. The packaging is therefore well conceived for a single use. The mask itself is a light pastel green color. The mask is not smooth there are some kind of micro particles inside which are not useful for exfoliating so in my opinion superfluous, because they’re rare. When I opened the mask the smell of male cologne bumped into my face. I was shocked because I didn’t expect that kind of scent. The scent is extremely strong and quite inappropriate for a face mask.

hmmaska2Collage

Maske je bilo tokrat manj v lončku kot prejšnjič, čeprav je teža ista, tako da sem porabila skoraj vse, kar mi je prav, saj masko težko shranimo, ko je enkrat odprta. Masko bi naj vmasirali na umit in suh obraz, ter pustili stat do 15 minut. Maska se je po določenem času začela sušiti in s tem, ko se je sušila mi je tudi začelo kožo zategovati. Občutek zame ni moteč.

There was less mask in the pot then last time, although the weight is the same, so I used almost all of it and I like that because it’s hard to store the mask once it’s opened. You are supposed to massage the mask onto a clean and dry face and leave it on up to 15 minutes. The mask did start to dry after a while and while drying it also started to tighten the skin. I don’t mind the feeling.

hmmaska3Collage

Maska se umije enostavno, jo je pa potrebno zmehčati z mlačno vodo preden jo začnemo odstranjevati oziroma umivati. Na koži mi je pustila čist občutek, kože mi ni zategovalo, kot pri prejšnji maski in koža se mi ni zmastila dobre tričetrt ure. Maska je dobra a spet nič posebnega in raje posegam po Lushevih maskah. Kupila je več ne bom, predvsem zaradi neprijetnega vonja. Masko sem kupila v Ljubljani v H&M trgovini v Cityparku in zanjo odštela 2,99€. H&M maske za obraz me torej niso najbolj prepričale. A ste že poskusili kakšno? Vam je kakšna posebej všeč?

The mask is easy to wash but you do have to soften it with lukewarm water before we start removing or washing it off. It left a clean feeling on the skin, it didn’t tighten my skin as the previous one did and the skin started getting oily after good three-quarters of an hour. The mask is good but again nothing special and I rather use masks from Lush. I won’t buy it anymore especially because of the unpleasant scent. I bought the mask in Ljubljana in the H&M store in Citypark and paid 2,99€ for it. So the H&M masks didn’t convince me. Have you ever tried any? Did you especially liked any of them?

Radi se imejte ni veliko se smejte! 😉

Catrice: 9 in 1 Nail Elixir

IMG_8249

Odkar pomnim sem vedno imela trde nohte, kar mi je bilo načeloma všeč, saj sem jih tako s pilico vedno brez težav oblikovala v željeno obliko. Malo več težav je bilo pri rezanju s škarjicami ali ščipalcem, ampak ker zdaj že sigurno kakšnih 5 let nohte samo še pilim, nimam niti s tem težav.

Since I can remember I always had hard nails that I in principle like, because I could always file them in any desired shape. I had a bit more trouble with cutting them with scissors or clippers, but for about 5 years now I only file them, so I don’t have that problem anymore.

Največ težav mi je po drugi strani povzročalo lomljenje in pokanje nohtov (tudi na sredini nohta), če sem slučajno kaj narobe potegnila, kam preveč udarila z nohtom ali je pač bil takšen dan. Moji nohti so se lomili tudi čisto kratki, veliko huje pa je bilo če so bili daljši. Dva meseca nazaj sem se pa potožila prijateljici, ki dela v salonu lepote, in ona mi je rekla, da imam izsušene nohte in da se zato lomijo. Nikoli prej nisem pomislila na kaj takega, ker tudi če sem poskušala situacijo popraviti z negovalnimi olji, ponavadi ni pomagalo. Priporočala je podlak za nohte, ki vlaži.

On the other hand I had the most problems with brittle and cracked nails (even in the middle of the nail) if I accidentally pulled something the wrong way, hit the nail too hard on something or if it was just that day. My nails would brake even when they were really short but it was much worse if they were longer. Two months ago I complained to a friend that works in a beauty salon and she said that I have dehydrated nails and that’s why they brake. Never before have I thought of anything like that because even if I tried to fix the situation with nourishing oils it usually didn’t help. She recommended a moisturizing base coat.

IMG_8253

Ob naslednjem obisku drogerije sem se takoj podala v lov in hitro zastala pri Catrice stojalu, saj so mi Catrice laki za nohte zelo všeč. Ker nisem našla ničesar samo za vlaženje, sem se odločila poskusiti s tem. Catrice 9 in 1 Nail Elixir ima torej 9 izbranih sestavih, ki noht negujejo. Negovalni lak je pakiran v tipični embalaži kot vsi ostali laki od njih, čopič je dovolj širok, da je nanos enostaven in hiter. Sam lak je mlečno bele prosojne barve, vendar pa nohta ne obarva, tako da tudi barve laka, ki ga nanesete čez, ne spremeni. Nohtu da izredno lep sijaj, prav tako pa sem opazila, da se tudi barvni lak, ki ga nanesem naknadno, lepše sveti. Vonj je spet tipičen za lake, vendar pa ne premočan in tudi hitro se razdiši. Lak se hitro posuši, sijaj pa ostane dokler ga ne odstranimo.

The next time I visited a drugstore I went on a hunt and I stopped by the Catrice stand, because I really do like Catrice nail polish. Because I couldn’t find anything for moisturizing only I decided to try this one out. Catrice 9 in 1Nail Elixir has 9 selected ingredients that nourish the nail. The nourishing nail polish is packaged in a typical packaging as the other nail polishes from them, the brush is wide enough so the application is easy and fast. The polish itself is milky white translucent color but it doesn’t color the nail, so it also doesn’t alter the colored nail polish you apply over it. It gives a gorgeous shine to the nail and I also noticed that the colored polish I apply after also shines much nicer. The scent is typical for polishes but not too strong and it doesn’t linger long. The polish dries fast and the shine stays until it’s removed.

IMG_8256

Catrice 9 in 1 Nail Elixir sta na mezincu in prstancu. / Catrice 9 in 1 Nail Elixir are on the pinky and ring finger.

Odkar uporabljam tale negovalni lak lahko mirno rečem, da se mi ni zlomil niti en noht. Prišla sem od tega, da sem imela skoz zlomljene nohte, do tega, da nimam sedaj niti enega, pa če so nohti kratki ali dolgi. Skoraj bi lahko rekla, da mi je tale podlak spremenil življenje, saj več nisem niti tako previdna pri vsakdanjih opravilih kot prej. Nohte je definitivno naredil bolj prožne. Lak uporabljam vedno, tudi kot samostojni lak, za lep lesk in seveda nego. Sama imam tudi brazdaste nohte in lak tudi te malenkost prekrije, zapolni.

I can honestly say that since I’ve been using this nourishing nail polish not one nail broke. I came from broken nails all the time to not having a broken nail if it’s short or long. I could almost say that this base coat changed my life because I’m not that cautious with everyday activity like before. It definitely made my nails more flexible. I use the nail polish all the time, by itself for a nice shine and for nail care. I also have ridges on my nails and it helps with that a little as well.

Jaz še nikoli nisem bila tako navdušena nad negovalnim lakom, kot sem nad tem in mislim, da bo z mano ostal večno. Edini minus v mojem primeru je ta, da mi nohti še hitreje rastejo kot prej, kar pa meni ni všeč, saj imam rada kratke nohte. 🙂 Ampak za marsikoga bo verjetno tudi to plus. Če imate torej kakšne koli težave z nohti vam priporočam Catrice 9 in 1 Nail Elixir in verjamem, da si bodo tudi vaši nohti opomogli. Lak lahko kupite v vsaki drogeriji, ki prodaja Catrice izdelke, zanj pa boste odšteli okrog 3€.

I have never been so impressed by a nourishing nail polish as I am with this one and I think it will stay with me forever. The only minus is that my nails grow even faster then before and I don’t like that because I like my nails short. 🙂 But for many this will probably be a plus as well. If you have any problems with your nails I recommend you Catrice 9 in 1 Nail Elixir and I believe that your nails will also recover. You can buy the polish in every drugstore that sells Catrice products and you will pay around 3€ for it.

Avene: Thermal water

IMG_8241

S termalno vodo me je par let nazaj spoznala sestra, ko mi je podarila podoben izdelek. Spomnim se, da sem uživala ko sem si pršila s termalno vodo po obrazu v poletni vročini. Od takrat si velikokrat privoščim termalno vodo v spreju.

My sister introduced me to thermal water a few years ago when she introduced me to a similar product. I remember enjoying spritzing the thermal water all over my face in the summer heat. Since then I often treat myself with a spray thermal water.

Avene termalna voda je pakirana v beli visoki pločevinki z oranžnim (in črnim) napisom, podobno kot lak za lase. Sprej razprši vodo izredno fino, čutiti je, kot da vam meglica pada na obraz. Sprej zelo dobro deluje. Termalno vodo lahko kupite v mini različici 50ml ali v večji embalaži (150ml in 300ml). 150 ml bo dovolj za čez poletje, odvisno kako pogosto jo uporabljate seveda.

Avene Thermal water is packaged in a tall white tin with orange (and black) lettering, similar to a hairspray. The spray spritzes the water really fine and it feels like a mist is falling on your face. The spray works really well. You can buy the thermal water in a mini size 50ml or in a bigger packaging (150ml and 300ml). 150ml will be enough for over the summer, depending on how often you use it of course.

IMG_8242

Avene trdi, da ima njihova termalna voda potrjeno pomirjujoče delovanje ter da je le-ta primerna za atopično kožo, mastno kožo in kožo nagnjeno k rdečici. Prav tako naj bi bila primerna za nego kože po opeklinah, operativnih posegih, vnetjih, itd.

Avene claims that their thermal water is clinically shown to calm and to be suitable for atopic, oily skin and skin prone to redness. It’s also supposed to be suitable for soothing after skin burns, surgeries, infections, etc.

Sama hranim termalno vodo vedno v hladilniku, pozimi ali poleti, saj mi je občutek hladne meglice na obrazu izredno všeč. Špricam ponavadi iz razdalje okrog 20 cm in pošpricam v obliki črke X čez obraz. To je čisto dovolj. Poleti termalno vodo uporabljam predvsem po izpostavljenosti soncu, saj kožo dejansko pomiri. Termalno vodo uporabljam na čistem obrazu in tudi čez ličila, saj voda ličil ne razmaže (v primeru, da se z vodo ne polivate 🙂 ). Ostanek vode je dobro po par minutah popivnati, ampak ker nanesem res majhno količino, potrebe po tem nimam.

I myself always keep the thermal water in the refrigerator in the summer or winter, because I really like the feeling of a cold mist on my face. I spray it usually from a distance of about 20cm and spray it in a letter X shape across the face. That’s enough. In the summer I use the thermal water after being exposed to the sun, because it actually calms the skin. I use the thermal water on a clean face or over make-up, because the water doesn’t smudge the make-up (in case you don’t splash yourself with the water 🙂 ). It’s good to pat dry the rest of the water but since I use a small amount I don’t have the need to do that.

aveneCollage

Pozimi oziroma v času kurilne sezone, ko imam kožo bolj suho kot ponavadi, uporabljam meglico za osvežitev in navlažitev. Iz prve roke lahko torej potrdim, da Avene termalna voda kožo res pomiri in tudi navlaži, uporabljate pa jo lahko čez cel dan in čez celo leto. Sama imam doma 150ml sprej in vedno enega majhnega v torbici, za osvežitev čez dan. Avene termalno vodo lahko kupite v spletni lekarni Lekarnar.com in v drugih lekarnah. Ali mi priporočate še kaj drugega od Avene kozmetike?

In winter or during the heating season when my skin is more dry than usual I use the mist to refresh and moisten the skin. I can therefore confirm, firsthand, that the Avene Thermal water really does calm and moisturize the skin and you can use it throughout the day and year. I have a 150ml bottle at home and a small one as well in my bag for refreshment during the day. You can purchase the Avene Thermal water in an online pharmacy Lekarnar.com and in other pharmacies. Do you recommend anything else from Avene cosmetics?

Bitten & Burlesque make-up look

IMG_8225

Kot obljubljeno sem vam danes pripravila make-up izgled z uporabo Makeup Geek senčil Bitten in Burlesque, ki sem ju ocenila v prejšnji objavi. Prav tako sem vam izdala, da bom naredila zadimljen videz oči na moj način. To je prav tako moj prvi bolj dramatičen izgled, ki sem vam ga pripravila. Upam, da vam bo všeč.

As promised I prepared a make-up look for you today using Makeup Geek eyeshadows Bitten and Burlesque that I reviewed in the previous post. I also revealed that I would be doing a smokey eye look my way. This is also my first more dramatic look that I prepared for you. I hope you’ll like it.

IMG_8198

Kot omenjeno sem uporabila senčili Bitten in Burlesque, ampak ker to seveda ni bilo dovolj, sem si pomagala tudi z drugimi Makeup Geek senčili. Najprej sem oko pripravila z bazo. Prvo senčilo, ki sem ga uporabila je bilo Latte, ki mi je služilo kot prehodna barva (1.), prav tako pa sem ga potegnila nižje, v gubo veke. To sem ponovila 2-3x. Nato sem nadaljevala z rahlo ožjim blending čopičem in nanesla Bitten v samo gubo veke (2.). Pazila sem, da nisem šla previsoko. Tudi to sem ponovila parkrat. Ko sta bili senčili lepo zblendani, razmazani, sem nadaljevala.

As mentioned I used the Bitten and Burlesque eyeshadows but because that  wasn’t enough I helped myself with other Makeup Geek shadows. First I prepared my eyelid with a base. The first eyeshadow I used was Latte that served as an transitional shade (1.) but I also pulled it lower in the eye crease. I repeated this step 2-3x. Then I continued with a more narrow blending brush and applied Bitten only in the crease (2.). I was careful not to go too high. I also repeated this a few times. When the eyeshadows were nicely blended I continued.

IMG_8196

Ker sem si želela malo več dimenzije, sem v zunanji kotiček očesa (3.) s ploščatim čopičem nanesla Americano in ga s čopičem za blendanje razmazala. To sem ponovila dvakrat. Nadaljevala sem s ploščatim čopičem, s katerim sem nanesla Burlesque čez celo veko a le do očesne gube. S tanjšim čopičem za bledanje in z Bitten senčilom sem popravila prehod med senčili. Nanesla sem črni gel eyeliner za še bolj dramatičen izgled.

Because I wanted a little more dimension I applied Americano with a flat brush on my outer eye corner (3.) and blended it with a blending brush. I repeated this step twice. I continued with a flat brush that I used to apply Burlesque over my whole eyelid but only up to the crease. With a more narrow blending brush and Bitten eyeshadow I went over the crease one more time to blend it together. I applied black gel eyeliner for an even more dramatic look.

Look3Collage

Na spodnjo veko sem ob trepalnicah nanesla Bitten in senčilo malo zblendala s senčilom Latte. Nanesla sem maskaro na spodnje in zgornje trepalnice. Da sem oko malo odprla sem v notranje kotičke nanesla pikico senčila Shimma Shimma in na notranji rob spodnje veke Stila barvico za oči v odtenku Topaz (bež).

I applied Bitten on the lower eyelid by the lashes and blended the eyeshadow with a little Latte shadow. I applied mascara to the lower and upper eyelashes. To open the eye a little I put a dot of Shimma Shimma in the inner corner of the eye and Stila Topaz (beige) eyeliner on my waterline.

Ker sem oči močno naličila, sem na obrazu uporabila bolj nežne, nevtralne odtenke. Za piko na i bi morala uporabiti še umetne trepalnice a ker sem hitela na piknik (tako je, takšna sem šla popoldan na piknik, ljudje so verjetno mislili, da sem zmešana :D) sem jih izpustila. Seznam ostalih izdelkov, ki sem jih uporabila je spodaj. Vam je bil ta look všeč?

Because my eyes were so dark I used more delicate, neutral shades on the face. False eyelashes would be the cherry on the top but because I was rushing to go on a picnic (yes, I went on a picnic in the middle of the day looking like this, people probably thought I was crazy :D) I skipped that. List of the other products I used is down below. Did you like this look?

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Seznam ličil/Make-up list: obraz/face (Rimmel Stay Matte liquid mousse foundation, ABH Banana & Vanilla powder, Maybeline Shine Free Loose powder, Urban Decay Beached Bronzer Bronzed, Essence Pure Nude highlighter, Zoeva Coral blush palette, NYX Auto Eyebrow pencil, Essence Make me brow), ustnice/lips (Essence Longlasting lipliner Lovely Frappuccino, YSL Rouge Volupte 2).

Makeup Geek: Bitten in Burlesque

IMG_8137

Nadaljujem delo z ocenjevanjem Makeup Geek senčil in danes sta na vrsti Bitten in Burlesque, ki sta bolj temni, bolj skrivnostni senčili, ampak prav tako eni izmed mojih najljubših senčil.

I’m continuing with the evaluation of the Makeup Geek eyeshadows and today it’s time for Bitten and Burlesque, which are darker, more mysterious shades but also one of my favorites.

Makeup Geek trdi, da je Bitten temno rdeče-rjavo senčilo z mat finišem. S tem se popolnoma strinjam. Bitten je po mojem mnenju najboljše Makeup Geek senčilo, ki ga imam. Senčilo je izredno pigmentirano, zelo lepo se nanaša na veko in blenda, ni pudrasto, ampak ravno prav kremasto. Čudovito. 🙂 Bitten sem kupila za bolj drzne make-up izglede. Največkrat ga uporabljam v zunanjem kotičku očesa ali v gubi veke. Bitten je tisto senčilo, ki ga enostavno morate imeti.

Makeup Geek claims that Bitten is a deep maroon eyeshadow with a matte finish. I totally agree. Bitten is in my opinion the best Makeup Geek eyeshadow that I own. The shadow is extremely pigmented, it applies and blends nicely, it’s not powdery but creamy enough. Amazing. 🙂 I bought Bitten for more daring make-up looks. I usually use it in the outer eye corner or in the crease. Bitten is that one shade that you simply must have.

Burlesque sem prvič videla, ko sem gledala Kathleen Lights kako ga uporablja v kombinaciji z Bitten senčilom in takoj sem vedela, da ga potrebujem, čeprav je samo senčilo izredno podobno Bitten senčilu. Makeup Geek trdi, da je Burlesque bordo senčilo s toplimi podtoni in z metalnim finišem. Metalen finiš ni tako izrazit, da pa vseeno lep sijaj. Burlesque je bolj temno oziroma bolj globoko od Bitten in zato tudi bolj primerno za čez celo veko. Burlesque uporabljam vedno za zadimljen videz, ko želim nekaj drugačnega.

The first time I saw Burlesque was when I was watching Kathleen Light use it in combination with Bitten and I immediately knew that I need it although the shade itself was very similar to Bitten. Makeup Geek claims that Burlesque is a burgundy eyeshadow with warm undertones and a metallic finish. The metallic finish is not that noticeable but it does give a nice shine. Burlesque is deeper than Bitten and that’s why it’s suitable for all over the eyelid. I always use Burlesque for a smokey look when I want something different.

Če ste brali prejšnje objave o Makeup Geek senčilih, potem veste, da senčila ne pridejo v svoji embalaži, ampak boste potrebovale magnetno paleto, kjer jih boste hranili. Cena enega senčila je 6,30€ na Beauty Bay strani, kjer sem jih tudi sama kupila. Makeup Geek pripravlja spet nova senčila, ki bodo na voljo konec julija. Se že veselim. 🙂  Prav tako ne pozabite, da vas v petek čaka make-up izgled z uporabo teh dveh senčil. Verjetno se vam že svita kaj vam bom pripravila, kajne?

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 is again preparing new eyeshadows that will be available in the end of July. I can’t wait. 🙂 Also don’t forget that there will be a make-up look using these two shades on Friday. You probably already suspect what I’m preparing, right?
