Lush: Rose Jam

img_8965

Ta gel za tuširanje ni nov. Jaz sem ga celo lani kupila sestri za božič. Poskusila sem ga pa prvič pri mami in od takrat (mislim, da je bil maj) sem čakala, da bodo dobili spet božično kolekcijo, da ga kupim. In prvega oktobra, ko so dobili božično kolekcijo, sem že bila tam. Kupila sem gel in 7 božičnih kopalnih bombic, vendar pa se trenutno ne smem kopati zaradi zdravstvenih težav, tako da ne vem če bom uspela bombice oceniti do konca leta.

This shower gel isn’t new. I actually bought it last Christmas for my sister. The first time I tried it was at my moms house and since then (I think it was May) I was waiting for them to get the Christmas collection again so I can buy it. On first October when they got the Christmas collection I was there. I bought the gel and 7 Christmas bath bombs but because I’m having some medical problems and can’t take baths I don’t know if I will be able to review the bombs until the end of the year.

Pojdimo kar na gel. Gel je pakiran v prozorno plastenko s črno etiketo, tipično za Lush. Dozira se enostavno. Gel je vinsko rdeče barve in srednje (normalno) goste konsistence. Izredno lepo se peni, sama uporabljam še gobico za tuširanje s katero dobim še več pene. Umije dobro in na koži ne pušča filma, kar je dobrodošlo.

Let’s go to the gel. It’s in a transparent plastic bottle with a black label, typical for Lush. Dosing is easy. The gel is a wine red color and medium (normal) thick consistency. It foams beautifully, I do use a loofah that provides even more foam. It cleans well and doesn’t leave any film on the skin which is always welcoming.

Preidimo na vonj. Vonj je tudi glavni razlog, zakaj sem si ga tako želela. Meni osebno diši po cvetličnem medu. Medu gel sploh ne vsebuje, ampak vsebuje pa vanilijo, sok goji jagod, arganovo olje, absolut turške vrtnice in še veliko drugih dobrih sestavin. Torej diši sladko cvetlično. Zame je to eden najboljših gelov za tuširanje. Kože mi ne izsuši, kar je velik plus.

Let’s move on to the scent. The scent is also the main reason why I wanted it so much. To me personally it smells like flower honey. The gel doesn’t even contain honey but it does contain vanilla, goji berry juice, argan oil, Turkish rose and many other good ingredients. So it does have a sweet floral scent. For me this is one of the best shower gels. It doesn’t dry out my skin which is great.

Če zaokrožim, lahko iskreno povem, da je to definitivno moj naljubši gel za tuširanje. Gel je zaenkrat še na voljo v Lush trgovinah in v spletni trgovini, plačali pa boste 16,95€ za 250ml. Jaz ga definitivno priporočam in planiram narediti zaloge za čez celo leto. 🙂

If I round thing up I can honestly say that this is my favorite shower gel. You can still buy it in Lush stores or online and you will pay 16,95€ for 250ml. I definitely recommend it and I plan on stocking up for the year. 🙂

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Kako čistim čopiče + GIVEAWAY

img_8824

Velikokrat me sprašujejo kako čistim svoje čopiče za ličenje, zato sem se odločila na to temo napisati kar eno krajšo objavo. Kratko tudi zaradi tega, ker čiščenje čopičev ni nič posebnega ali zahtevnega. 🙂 Za lažje razumevanje pa sem posnela tudi kratek video v katerem lahko vidite kako jih sama čistim.

Often I’m asked how I clean my make-up brushes and that’s why I decided to write a short post about it. Short because there’s nothing special or complicated about cleaning brushes. 🙂 For better understanding I also made a short video that shows you how I clean them.

S čim čistim čopiče? Če je nekaj dobro za odstranjevanje ličil z mojega obraza, potem je tudi dobro za čiščenje mojih čopičev. Tako za čiščenje čopičev v veliki večini uporabljam Nuxe Reve de Miel gel za umivanje obraza, ki je nežen do mojih čopičev in jih dobro očisti. Ne dolgo nazaj pa sem se odločila poskusiti še z milom za čiščenje čopičev Barbara Hofmann, ki sem ga kupila v Mullerju in zanj odštela okoli 10€. Pred tem sem za čiščenje čopičev prav tako uporabljala katerokoli navadno trdo milo, gledala sem le, da je bilo za občutljivo kožo in neodišavljeno.

What do I use to clean my brushes? If something is good to clean the make-up from my face then it’s also good enough to clean my brushes. So for cleaning my brushes I mostly use my Nuxe Reve de Miel facial cleansing gel which is gentle to my brushes and also cleans them well. Not so long ago I decided to try a brush cleaning soap from Barbara Hofmann that I bought in Muller and paid around 10€. Before that I also used any regular solid soap that was for sensitive skin and fragrance free.

Za samo čiščenje čopičev sem prej uporabljala dlan, ampak ker se je število čopičev povečalo, moje dlani pa so kar občutljive, sem se odločila kupiti podlage za čiščenje. Eno je v obliki jajčka, ki se natakne na prste in ima precej bolj globoke brazde, drugo pa je malenkost večje, se lahko prisesa na umivalnik ali drži med prsti in ima bolj nežne brazde. Prvo zato uporabljam za čopiče za obraz, drugo pa za manjše čopiče.

I used to use my palm for cleaning the brushes but because the number of my brushes has increased and my hands are quite sensitive I decided to buy a widget for cleaning. One is shaped as an egg that I put on my fingers and has deeper creases, the other one is a bit larger and can be suctioned to the sink or you can hold it between your fingers and has more delicate creases. That’s why I use the first one for face brushes and the other one for smaller brushes.

Kadar umivam čopiče za obraz s katerimi uporabljam kremne oziroma tekoče izdelke uporabim vročo vodo iz pipe, saj gre tako hitreje. Sem pa pri tem toliko bolj pazljiva da vroča voda ne pride do lepila, ki drži ščetine skupaj, saj bi se stopilo in s tem bi tudi uničila čopič. Na koncu, ko je čopič čisti uporabim mlačno vodo in takrat ga obrnem navpično in previdno izperem milo med ščetinami. Kot vidite na posnetku sem s čopičem, ki ima sintetične ščetine (1. čopič) bolj “groba”, s tistimi z naravnimi oziroma mešanimi ščetinami (2. in 3. čopič) pa malo bolj previdna. Čopič milim dokler pena ni čista in na koncu ga vedno dobro umijem ter sem pozorna da se več nikjer ne peni.

When I’m cleaning face brushes that I use with cream or liquid products I use hot tap water because it’s faster this way. I’m a bit more careful when doing that so that the hot water doesn’t melt the adhesive that holds the bristles together because I would ruin the brush that way. In the end, when the brush is clean, I use lukewarm water and turn the brush vertically and gently wash the soap between the bristles. As you can see in the video I’m more “rough” with the brush with synthetic bristles (1. brush) and more careful with the brush with natural or mixed bristles (2. and 3. brush). I put soap on the brush until the foam isn’t clean and in the end I always clean it well and I’m careful that it’s not foaming anywhere.

Ko čopič operem ga tudi podrgnem po čisti brisači, da odstranim čim več vode iz njega. Ko vse čopiče očistim jih položim vodoravno na čisto brisačo in sama jih ponavadi položim na pralni stroj tako, da se ščetine ne dotikajo brisače in se tako tudi prej posušijo. Pustim jih čez noč in drugi dan so čopiči ponavadi suhi in pripravljeni na uporabo. Nikoli čopičev ne puščajte navpično postavljenih s ščetinami obrnjenimi navzgor. Če imate možnost ali imate stojalo za sušenje čopičev, jih vedno obrnite s ščetinami navdzol, da voda odteka iz čopiča.

When I wash the brush I also rub it on a clean towel to remove as much water from it. When I clean all the brushes I place them horizontally on a clean towel and I usually put them on a washing machine so that the bristles don’t touch the towel and they dry much faster. I let them dry overnight and the next day they are usually ready to use. Never leave the brushes vertically positioned with the bristles facing upwards. If you have the option or you have a rack for drying brushes, always position them with bristles facing downwards so the water drips from the brush.

img_8821

To bi bilo vse kar se tiče čiščenja čopičev. Enostavno kajne? 🙂 Sama čistim čopiče za nanašanje tekočega pudra bolj pogosto (najmanj enkrat na mesec), ostale pa po potrebi. Ker bi rada, da tudi vi skrbite za svoje čopiče sem vam pripravila majhno NAGRADNO IGRO.

That would be all as far as cleaning the brushes go. Easy right? 🙂 I clean my brushes for applying foundation more often (at least once a month) and the others when necessary. Because I want you to take care of your brushes I prepared a small GIVEAWAY.

Lush Pumpkin

img_8803

Spet je tukaj tisti čas, ko preživim vedno več časa v banji in ko se naslajam nad Lushevimi kopalnimi bombicami. Poleg svežih mask za obraz so kopalne bombice drugi najboljši produkt od Lusha v mojem mnenju. Prav tako pa je v Lushu že na voljo omejena kolekcija za noč čarovnic iz katere sem si izbrala tole kopalno bombico v obliki buče.

Again it’s that time of the year when I spend most of my time in the bathtub and when I’m drooling over the Lush bath bombs. In addition to the fresh face masks, the bath bombs are the second best product from Lush in my opinion. You can already buy the Halloween collection in Lush stores and the Pumpkin bath bomb is the product I choose from it. 

Kopalna bombica je torej oranžne barve iz izgleda kot izrezljana buča za veliko noč. Enostavno a zelo primerno in luštno za to kolekcijo. Bombica diši že suha izredno močno, najbolj voham citruse in vanilijo. Ko pa sem bombico vrgla v vodo pa je vonj postal še močnejši in kopalnica je kaj hitro zadišala. Lush sicer trdi, da bombica diši po bučni piti vendar pa se mi zdi, da se cimet premalo voha, da bi to potrdila. Če bi bilo več cimeta in malo manj citrusov bi se prej strinjala s tem.

The bath bomb is orange and it look like a carved out pumpkin for Halloween. Simple but very appropriate and cute for this collection. The bomb has a strong scent even when dry, I smell citruses and vanilla. When I threw the bath bomb in the water the scent only got stronger and the scent spread through the bathroom. Lush claims that the bomb smells like pumpkin pie but I think that there’s not enough cinnamon to confirm that. If there would be more cinnamon and a little less citruses then I would agree quicker. 

To nikakor ne pomeni, da mi vonj ni všeč. Vse kar diši toplo s pridihom citrusov mi je všeč in še bolj všeč mi je, ko je vonj močan in ostane na koži še nekaj časa po kopanju. Bombica obarva vodo oranžno, vendar pa je voda še vedno prosojna. Video Pumpkin kopalne bombice pa lahko vidite v akciji spodaj.

This in no way means that I don’t like the scent. Everything that smells warm with a hint of citrus I like and I like it even more when the scent is strong and stays on the skin for some time after bathing. The bomb colors the water orange but the water is still transparent. You can watch the Pumpkin bath bomb in action down below. 

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, pimentovo olje, absolut vanilije, olje cimetovih listov, alfa izometil ionon, cinamal, citral, eugenol, geraniol, limonene, barvilo 15510, barvilo 45350.

Kar sem najbolj pogrešala je to, da ni nič priplavalo na površje iz bombice. Ni bilo nobenih presenečenj, kar sem načeloma iz bombice za veliko noč celo pričakovala. Kože mi ni izsušila, saj vsebuje tudi kar nekaj olj, kar je vedno plus. Vonj se je obdržal na koži še par ur. Za kopalno bombico boste odšteli 5,95€.

What I mostly missed was the fact that nothing came out of the bomb while fizzing. There weren’t any surprises, which were expected from a Halloween collection bath bomb. It didn’t dry out my skin because it does contain some oils which is always a plus. The scent stayed on the skin for a few hours. You will pay 5,95€ for the bath bomb.

Grandstand make-up look

img_8763

Kot vedno sem vam tudi danes pripravila make-up izgled z uporabo senčila, ki sem ga ocenila v prejšnji objavi in sicer je govora o Makeup Geek Grandstand “foiled” senčilu. Spet sem se odločila za malo bolj dramatičen izgled in upam, da vam bo všeč.

As always I have prepared a make-up look using the eyeshadow that I reviewed in the previous post and the shadow I’m talking about is Makeup Geek’s Grandstand foiled eyeshadow. Again I have decided to do a more dramatic look and I hope you’ll like it.

img_8748

Uporabila sem torej senčilo Grandstand, ampak ker tega izgleda nisem mogla doseči samo z enim senčilom sem si pomagala še z drugimi Makeup Geek senčili in sicer Shimma Shimma, Latte in Americano. Veko sem pripravila z bazo za senčila, ki sem jo fiksirala z bež senčilom. Nato sem uporabila Latte (1.), ki je služilo kot prehodna barva. Senčila nisem nanesla previsoko ampak v gubo očesa in malenkost nad gubo s čopičem za blendanje. To sem ponovila dvakrat. Nadaljevala sem z najtemnejšim senčilom, Americano (2.) katero sem z manjšim čopičem nanesla na zunanjo četrtino, notranjo četrtino očesa in oba dela previdno povezala, ne da bi šla nad očesno gubo. To sem ponavljala dokler ni bilo dovolj temno.

So I used the eyeshadow Grandstand but because I couldn’t achieve this look with just one eyeshadow I helped myself with some other Makeup Geek eyeshadows, namely Shimma Shimma, Latte and Americano. I prepared the eyelid with an eyeshadow base that I set with a beige eyeshadow. Then I used Latte (1.) that served as a transitional color. I didn’t apply the eyeshadow too high but just in the eye crease and a tiny bit over it with a blending brush. I repeated this twice. I then continued with the darkest eyeshadow, Americano (2.) which I applied with a smaller brush in the outer and inner quarter of the lid and carefully linked them together by not going above the crease. I repeated this until it was dark enough.

img_8752

Sledilo je senčilo Grandstand (3.) katero sem s ploščatim čopičem nanesla na sredino veke. Pazila sem, da nisem šla preveč v kotičke očesa a da sem senčilo vseeno povezala s temno rjavim. Senčilo sem prav tako nanesla še enkrat čez s prstom. Da sem senčili povezala sem z manjšim čopičem in Americano (2.) senčilom šla narahlo čez robe Grandstand senčila, da je bilo vse povezano in da nismo imeli nobenega ostrega prehoda. Na spodnjo veko sem, čisto ob rob trepalnic, nanesla Americano (2.), razmazala oziroma zmehčala vse skupaj z Latte (1.) senčilom in na sredino nanesla malenkost Grandstand (3.) senčila.

Next was Grandstand  (3.) which I applied with a flat brush to the center of the eyelid. I was careful not to go too close to the corners of my eye but still to blend it together with the dark brown eyeshadow. I applied the eyeshadow with my finger as well. To blend the eyeshadows even more I took a smaller blending brush and Americano (2.) shadow and lightly brushed over the edge of the Grandstand shadow. On my lower lid I put Americano (2.) right under my eyelashes and blended it together with Latte (1.) and applied a bit of Grandstand (3.) eyeshadow in the middle.

grandcollage

Za zaključek sem pod obrv in v kotičke očesa nanesla Shimma Shimma (4.) senčilo. Ker sem želela vse skupaj še malenkost poglobiti sem s tankim čopičem nanesla gel liner in naredila tanko,ravno črto ob rob trepalnic, na notranji rob spodnje veke pa Urban Decay črno barvico za oči.

To finish it off I put some Shimma Shimma (4.) under my eyebrows and in my inner corners. Because I wanted to deepen everything even more I applied gel liner with a thin brush and made a thin, straight line at the edge of the eyelashes and applied some black eye kohl from Urban Decay on my waterline.

img_8764

Ker so bile oči spet središče dogajanja, sem na obraz nanesla bolj nežne rožnate odtenke. Za piko na i bi lahko uporabila še umetne trepalnice a ker jih redko uporabljam, sem se odločila proti. Seznam ostalih izdelkov, ki sem jih uporabila je spodaj. Vam je bil ta izgled všeč?

Because the eyes were in the center again I applied more soft rosey shades to my face. I could have applied false lashes to top it off but because I rarely use them I decided not to. 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(Clinique Beyond Perfecting concealer and foundation, Catrice Camouflage concealer, ABH Banana & Vanilla powder, ELF Studio pressed powder, The Balm Desert bronzer, Benefit Bella Bamba blush, NYX Auto Eyebrow pencil, Essence Make me brow, Essence Lash Princess mascara), ustnice/lips (L.O.V LOVlicious Caring Volume gloss Forbidden Cassis).

Makeup Geek: Grandstand

img_8723

Čeprav Makeup Geek senčila ocenjujem ponavadi v paru, pa je to edino “foiled” senčilo, ki ga imam in zato ga ocenjujem posamezno, saj je tudi cena višja, kot pri navadnih Makeup Geek senčilih.

Although I usually review Makeup Geek eyeshadows in pairs, this is the only foiled eyeshadow that I have so I’m reviewing it by itself and also the price is higher than usual with the “normal” Makeup Geek eyeshadows.

Makeup Geek trdi, da so njihova “foiled” senčila nekaj posebnega, saj so hibrid med kremnimi senčili in senčili v prahu/kamnu. Ponujajo neverjetno pigmentacijo v kombinaciji s kovinskim finišem. Senčilo je res izredno kremasto a hkrati ni kremno. Že na otip je drugačno. Meni je ta formula res odlična in vredna svoje cene.

Makeup Geek claims that their foiled eyeshadows are something special because they are a hybrid between cream and powder eyeshadows. They give incredible pigmentation in combination with a metallic finish. The eyeshadow is really very creamy but not a cream. Even at the touch it’s different. This formula is really excellent and worth the price in my opinion.

img_8721

Samo senčilo Grandstand je srednje rožnato zlato z malenkost sivkasto-vijoličnega podtona in kovinskim finišem seveda. Sama bi senčilo opisala kot rožnato zlato. Senčilo torej je izredno pigmentirano, najboljše se nanaša s ploščatim čopičem ali celo prstom in se tudi lepo razmazuje. Senčilo je obstojno cel dan in se kljub kremasti teksturi ne poseda v gubo veke (vedno uporabljam bazo za senčila). Sama ga uporabljam za večerne izglede in ponavadi čez celo veko ali na sredini veke za nekaj več.

The eyeshadow Grandstand is a medium rose gold with a hint of taupe undertones and of course a foiled finish. I would describe the color as rose gold. The eyeshadow is extremely pigmented and applies best with a flat brush or even with a finger and also blends nicely. It lasts all day and doesn’t set in the crease although it’s so creamy (I always use an eyeshadow base). I use it mostly for evening looks and usually over the whole eyelid or on the center of the lid for something more.

Tako kot ostala, tudi to senčilo ni v svoji embalaži, ampak boste potrebovale magnetno paleto, za hranjenje. Cena enega senčila je 10€ na Beauty Bay strani, kjer sem ga tudi sama kupila. Makeup Geek je pripravil nova senčila, ki so že na voljo v tujini, tokrat tudi ta s “foiled” finišem. Se že veselim novega nakupa. 🙂  Prav tako ne pozabite, da vas v petek čaka make-up izgled z uporabo tega senčila.

Like the other ones, this eyeshadow doesn’t come in its own packaging so you’ll need a magnet palette to store them in. The price of one eyeshadow is 10€ on the Beauty Bay site where I bought it. Makeup Geek has developed new eyeshadows that are already available abroad, this time also foiled eyeshadows. I look forward to purchasing some new shades. 🙂 Also don’t forget that there will be a makeup look on Friday with this eyeshadow.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

EOS Lip balm

img_8665

To je spet eden takšnih izdelkov, ki sem si ga želela zelo dolgo vendar pa si ga nisem nikoli kupila, dokler ga nisem zagledala v drogeriji v Sloveniji. Seveda sem takoj zagrabila priložnost, da ga preizkusim. Če pa me spremljate že dalj časa pa tudi veste, da sem obsedena z balzami za utnice. 🙂

This is again one of those products I wanted for a long time but never bought it until I saw it in a drugstore in Slovenia. Of course I took that chance to try it out. If you follow me for a longer time then you also know that I’m obsessed with lip balms. 🙂

Embalaža je drugačna, kot smo jih vajeni pri balzamih. Balzam ni v stiku, ampak je v plastičnem jajčku. Odpira se enostavno in tudi tesni dobro. Embalaža je mat in tudi na otip je prijetna ter ne drsi v rokah. Sam balzam je v obliki polovice jajčka. Nanos je enostaven, kljub drugačni obliki. Jajčka je seveda bolj nepraktična kot tipičen stik, saj zavzame malo več prostora a če uporabljete torbico vas to ne bo motilo. Sama balzama ne nosim s seboj, ampak ga uporabljam v glavnem doma.

The packaging is different then what we’re used to with lip balms. The balm is not in a stick but in a plastic egg. It opens easily and closes good. The packaging is matte and nice to the touch as it isn’t slippery in the hands. The balm itself is shaped like half of an egg. The application is easy despite the different shape. The egg is of course more impractical then a typical stick because it takes up more space but if you use a handbag the this will not bother you. I myself don’t carry the balm with me because I use it at home.

img_8668

Sweet Mint

EOS (Evolution of Smooth) trdi, da so njihovi balzami za ustnice 95% organski, 100% naravni, brez vazelina in parabenov. Vsebujejo vitamin E, karitejevo maslo in jojobino olje, ki poskrbijo za mehke, navlažene in gladke ustnice. Sestavine so res odlične.

EOS (Evolution of Smooth) claims that their lip balms are 95% organic, 100% natural, paraben and petrolatum free. They contain vitamin E, shea butter and jojoba oil that keep your lips soft, moisturized and smooth. The ingredients are really excellent.

Ker je pri nas na voljo kar nekaj različic, sem se odločila poskusiti sladko meto (Sweet Mint) s katero se mi je zdelo, da ne morem zgrešiti. In res je bilo tako. Balzam je v mint embalaži in tudi nasplošno je barva embalaže, jajčka, odvisna od vonja/okusa balzama. Balzam zaradi mete na začetku ustnice rahlo hladi, čez čas pa se le-ta razdiši in ostanejo le negovane ustnice. Ker sem iskreno navdušena nad balzamom sem v Avstriji (izbira tam je namreč večja) kupila še balzam z okusom melone (Honeysuckle Honeydew), ki diši res lepo po meloni. Balzam je lepo mazljiv in tudi prijeten na ustnicah. Na ustnicah se obdrži kar nekaj časa, seveda je vse odvisno od tega koliko pijete in jeste.

Because there are a few different versions in our stores I decided to try Sweet Mint because I felt I can’t go wrong with that one. And so it was. The balm is in a mint packaging and generally the color of the packaging, egg, depends on the scent/flavor of the balm.  The balm cools the lips slightly in the beginning because of the mint but after a while it’s feeling decreases and you’re left with nourished lips. Because I’m honestly impressed with the balm I bought another one in Austria (the choice there is bigger) with the melon flavor (Honeysuckle Honeydew) that smells really nice and like melon. The balm is nicely spreadable and also really pleasant on the lips. It stays quite some time on the lips but that depends on how much you eat and drink.

img_8667

Honeysuckle Honeydew

Odkar sem kupila tale balzam drugega niti pogledala nisem in če bo tudi pozimi tako uspešno negoval moje ustnice se zna zgoditi, da bo prehitel mojega trenutno najljubšega od Nuxe-a. :O Za balzam boste plačali okoli 6€ za 7g, kupite pa ga lahko v kateremkoli Mullerju ali D&M-u. V Avstriji v Douglasu boste našli malo večjo izbiro okusov, prav tako imajo kreme za roke in telo. Jaz balzam priporočam!

Since I bought this lip balm I haven’t even looked at another one and if it’s going to successfully nourish my lips in the winter time as well then it’s possible that it will substitute my current favorite from Nuxe. You will pay around 6€ for 7g and you can buy it in any Muller or D&M. You will find a bit bigger choice of flavors in Austria in Douglas and they also have hand and body lotions as well. I recommend the lip balm!

OGX: Coconut Water weightless hydration oil

IMG_8629

Ponavadi, ko kupim kakšen izdelek impulzivno, nimam sreče in izdelek v veliki večini ni dober. Sedaj pa sem že parkrat imela srečo in nazadnje, ko sem bila v drogeriji (takrat sem tudi kupila L.O.V glos, ki je trenutno moj najljubši – ocena tukaj) sem slučajno zagledala tole. Ker rada poskrbim za svoje lase in ker mi kokos zelo lepo diši, kokosovo olje pa je dobro za lase, sem se odločila poskusiti.

Usually when I buy a product impulsively I don’t have luck with it and it’s usually not good. But lately I’ve been having luck and the last time I visited the drugstore (that’s also when I bought the L.O.V gloss, that is currently my favorite – review here) I accidentally saw this. Because I like to take care of my hair and because I like the scent of coconut, coconut oil is also good for your hair, I decided to try it out.

IMG_8626

Kokosova voda je pakirana v prozorno plastično embalažo s špricalko. Všeč mi je, da je prozorna, da vidim koliko produkta še imam. Špricalka je zelo dobra saj prši izredno fino in tako lepo prekrije lase. Sama kokosova voda je brezbarvna in seveda diši po kokosu. Sam vonj je precej umeten in močan, tako da če vam kokos ne diši, vam tole odsvetujem. Vonj se radiši po par urah, jaz ga drugi dan več sploh ne zaznam. Ker voda vsebuje kokosovo olje deluje kot suho olje, saj se hitro vpije, pusti pa lep lesk na laseh.

The coconut water is packaged in a transparent plastic packaging with a spray. I like that it’s transparent so I can see how much product I have left. The spray works really well because it sprays the water very fine and it coats the hair nicely. The coconut water is colorless and of course it smells like coconut. The scent itself is pretty artificial and strong so if you don’t like the scent of coconut I don’t recommend this to you. The scent fades after a few hours, I don’t smell it the next day at all. Since the water contains coconut oil it acts like dry oil because it absorbs quickly but leaves a nice shine on the hair.

IMG_8627

Organix trdi, da bi naj voda vaše lase navlažila in jim dala lesk s pomočjo kokosove vode, elektrolitov in kančkom kokosovega olja. Kokosova voda in olje sta nekje na sredini med sestavinami kar ni tako slabo. Sama lase umijem, jih posušim malenkost v brisači in po tem, ko jih razčešem jih pošpricam s produktom. Produkt nanesem le na konice oziroma na spodnji del las in lase nato spet razčešem, da ga še bolje razporedim po laseh.

Organix claims that the water is supposed to hydrate the hair and give it shine with the help of coconut water, electrolytes and a hint of coconut oil. The coconut water and oil are somewhere in the middle of the ingredients which is not bad at all. I wash my hair, towel dry it and after combing it I spray the hair with the product. I apply the product on my hair ends only and then comb my hair again to spread it even better.

Ker so moje konice izredno suhe in uničene in tudi izgledajo suhe ter so brez leska, lahko rečem, da tale produkt res naredi moje lase, konice, sijoče in zdrave pri tem pa las ne obteži ali jih naredi mastne. Lasje so sijoči do naslednjega umivanja. Jaz sem s produktom zadovoljna in predvidevam, da ga bom še kupila. Kupila sem ga v Mullerju in za  118ml sem odštela zanj okoli 7€.

Because my hair ends are extremely dry and damaged and they also look really dry and dull I can say that this product does make my hair, my hair ends, shiny and healthy without weighing my hair or making it greasy. The hair stays shiny until the next wash. I’m happy with the product and I assume that I’ll buy it again. I bought it in Muller and paid around 7€ for 118ml.

L.O.V cosmetics: Caring Volume Gloss – Mystic Sand

IMG_8604

Odkar imam dovolj dolge lase, da jih lahko spnem v čop, se spet navdušujem nad lip glossi. Čeprav me ob prvem obisku L.O.V stojala v Mullerju ni navdušilo nič, pa sem si drugič vzela malo več časa in tako tudi našla tale skriti dragulj. L.O.V bi naj bila bolj elegantna sestra Essence in Catrice kozmetike, če ne drugače pa definitivno po izgledu oziroma embalaži.

Since my hair is long enough so I can tie it in a ponytail I’m becoming more and more enthusiastic about lip glosses again. Although the first time I visited the L.O.V stand in Muller nothing really impressed me, I took a bit more time on the second visit and that’s how I found this hidden jewel. L.O.V is supposed to be the more elegant sister of Essence and Catrice cosmetics if not otherwise then definitely in appearance or packaging.

Embalaža je oglata a zaobljena prozorna tuba s tipičnim aplikatorjem  z gobico. Gobica zajame dovolj produkta za cele ustnice in ga tudi lepo razmaže. L.O.V trdi, da daje glos eleganten sijoč finiš in nežno nego v enem s pomočjo Tsubaki olja in vitamina E. Mystic Sand odtenek je rjavkasto  kožne (nude) barve z dodatki rožnate. Ker se zadnje čase navdušujem nad takimi odtenki, je tale bil kot naročen. Je precej pigmentiran, tako da moje ustnice popolnoma prekrije. Je nežnega vonja, ki ga na ustnicah ne zaznam.

The packaging is an angular rounded transparent tube with a typical doe-foot applicator. The sponge captures enough product for the whole lips and also smears is easily. L.O.V states that the gloss gives an elegant shiny finish and gentle care in one with the help of Tsubaki oil and vitamin E. Mystic Sand shade is a brown nude color with hints of rose. Because lately I’ve been really into these kind of shades this one was on cue. It’s pretty pigmented so it covers my lips completely. It has a subtle smell that I can’t smell once on the lips.

lovCollage

Glos je  kremast, izredno udoben in lahek na ustnicah, kar je najbolj pomembno pa je to, da ni lepljiv. Daje izredno lep lesk ustnicam, ki izgledajo skoraj mokre. Ker ni lepljiv seveda tudi ni dolgo obstojen. Na meni je zdržal dobro uro, uro pa pol, v primeru da nisem jedla. Zelo rada ga kombiniram z Essence Longlasting barvico za ustnice v odtenku 05 Lovely Frappuccino. Ustnic mi ne izsuši, ampak jih celo navlaži malenkost.

The gloss is creamy, really comfortable and light on the lips and most importantly it’s not sticky. It gives the lips an extremely beautiful shine that looks almost wet. Because it’s not sticky it of course isn’t long-lasting. It lasted about an good hours, hour and a half on me in case I didn’t eat. I love to combine it with the Essence Longlasting lip liner in the shade 05 Lovely Frappuccino. It doesn’t dry out my lips but it even slightly moisturizes them.

Jaz sem nad glosom in nad odtenkom navdušena, že planiram nakup še kakšnega. L.O.V lahko kupite v večini Mullerjev po Sloveniji, zanj pa boste odšteli 5,99€ kar se mi zdi zelo ugodno za tako kvaliteten glos. Ali so kakšni drugi izdelki od njih, ki mi jih priporočate?

I am extremely impressed by the gloss and the shade and I’m already planning to buy some more. You can buy L.O.V in most Mullers in Slovenia and you’ll pay 5,99€ for it which is a great price for a gloss this great in quality. Are there any other products from them that you recommend?

LA Splash: Smitten Liptint mousse – Charmed

IMG_8521

Ker so tekoče šminke izredno popularne zadnje čase, sem komaj čakala, da tudi sama preizkusim eno iz LA Splash linije. Ocene na spletu so se mi zdele dobre, cena je bila sprejemljiva. LA Splash ima veliko različnih vrst tekočih šmink, vendar pa je formula pri vseh baje enaka. Sama imam še eno šminko iz druge linije in tudi sama lahko rečem, da je formula skoraj  enaka kot pri tej.

Because liquid lipsticks are extremely popular lately I couldn’t wait to try one myself from the LA Splash line. The reviews on the web seemed very good and the price was acceptable. LA Splash has a lot of different types of liquid lipsticks but the formula is supposed to be the same in all of them. I myself have a lipstick from another line and I can also say that the formula is pretty much the same as in this one.

IMG_8522

LA Splash trdi, da šminka zacementira barvo na ustnicah za vodoodporni rezultat brez razmazovanja, prenašanja ali bledenja. Inovativna formula drsi na ustnicah brez truda in ustnic ne obteži. Začetna tekoča tekstura se takoj posuši na žametni mat odtenek. Embalaža je tipična za tekočo šminko ali glos, prozorna tuba z napisom v rožnati metalik barvi. Aplikator je tipična gobica, ki zajame dovolj produkta za cele ustnice. Odtenek Charmed, ki sem ga izbrala pa je zaprašeno rožnato kožni (nude) odtenek. Vonj je recej močen a se hitro razdiši.

LA Splash states that the lipstick seals the color on the lips for a waterproof, smudge-proof result that will not transfer or fade. Its innovative weightless formula glides on effortlessly over the lips with a feather-light feel. The initial liquid texture immediately dries to a velvet matte tint. The packaging is typical for a liquid lipstick or a gloss, a transparent tube with lettering in pink metallic color. The applicator is a typical doe-foot applicator that captures enough product for the whole lips. The shade I picked is Charmed, a dusty rose-nude color. The scent is pretty strong but doesn’t linger.

LASpalshCollage

Sama ustnice na debelo namažem z balzamom, ostanke katerega pred nanosom popivnam s papirnatim robčkom. Formula je precej tekoča, kar omogoča res enostaven nanos. Šminka se popolnoma posuši po petih minutah. V času, ko se šminka suši, odsvetujem pritiskanje ustnic skupaj. Šminka se ne prenaša, ko je enkrat suha in je tudi prijetna na ustnicah. Pri svetlejših odtenkih se velikokrat na notranjem robu ustnic naredi suh rob, kar se je meni pri tej šminki zgodilo le enkrat. Tekočina ne vpliva na šminko, pri hrani pa je odvisno od tega kaj jeste in tudi kako jeste. Mastna hrana bo vplivala na šminko, ki bo postala lepljiva in se začela drobit. Pri meni je obstojna dobrih 6 ur, v primeru da ničesar ne jem. Zbledi relativno malo. Ustnice malenkost izsuši, kar je za pričakovati pri tekoči šminki, vendar pa nanos balzama po uporabi to hitro odpravi. Odstranim jo z micelarno vodico in gelom za odstranjevanje ličil.

I heavily apply lip balm on my lips, excess of which I dab off with a paper tissue before applying lipstick. The formula is pretty liquidy which allows an easy application. The lipstick dries completely after five minutes. While waiting for the lipstick to dry I advise against pressing your lips together. The lipstick does not transfer once it’s dry and is really comfortable on the lips. With lighter shades it usually happens that a crusty rim appears on the inner part of the lips which happened to me only once with this lipstick. Liquids do not affect the lipstick but with food it depends on what you eat and how you eat it. Fatty foods will affect the lipstick which will become tacky and will start to crumble. The lipstick lasts good 6 hours on me in case I don’t eat anything. It fades only slightly. It does dry out the lips a bit which is to be expected with liquid lipsticks but applying a lip balm after using it will eliminate that quickly. I remove it with a micellar water and make-up removing gel.

Šminka ne sodeluje dobro z drugimi produkti. Ne s črtali, šminkami, glosi ali balzami. Najboljše se obnese, če so ustnice navlažene a suhe pri nanosu. Če boste nanesli črtalo pod šminko, bo ta ostala rahlo lepljiva, se bo hitro začela drobiti in se bo prenašala. Če boste nanesli karkoli čez, bo šminka spet ostala rahlo lepljiva, ampak se ne bo drobila, prav tako ne bo tako dolgo obstojna. Kljub temu je meni izredno všeč, saj je res “lahka” in udobna na ustnicah (veliko bolj kot Stila Stay All Day šminke).

The lipstick doesn’t work well with other products. Not with lip liners, lipsticks, glosses or lip balms. It works best if the lips are moisturized but dry upon application. If you’ll apply a lip liner under the lipstick the lipstick will stay a bit tacky and will start to crumble and transfer. If you’ll apply anything over it again it will stay tacky but will not crumble and it’s not going to be that long wearing. I still like it a lot because it’s really “light” and comfortable on the lips (much more than Stilla Stay All Day lipsticks).

Naročila sem jo na Beauty Bay-u, kjer imate na voljo veliko različnih odtenkov, plačala pa sem 12,80€, kar se mi zdi OK za 3ml. Jaz bom sigurno še kupila kakšen odtenek, saj mi je formula izredno všeč, prav tako je nanos enostaven, barve pa so ob “pravilni” uporabi dobro obstojne.

I ordered it on Beauty Bay where you have a lot of different shades to choose from and paid 12,80€ which I think is OK for 3ml. I will definitely buy a few more shades because I really like the formula, the application is easy and the colors are long wearing with the “correct” use.

Urban Decay: VICE Gubby & Liar lipstick

IMG_8465

Odkar sem kupila prvo šminko, sem čakala dan, da jo bom ocenila. In ta dan je končno prišel. Prva šminka, ki sem jo naročila je bila Gubby, ki me je zelo pozitivno presenetila, nato pa je sledila še šminka v odtenku Liar, ki me je prav tako navdušila.

Since I bought the first lipstick I was waiting for the day to review it. And that day has finally come. The first lipstick I ordered was Gubby which surprised me positively, followed by the lipstick Liar which also impressed me.

Urban Decay je par mescev nazaj reformuliral svoje šminke in potem spektakularno lansiral 100 šmink s šestimi različnimi finiši, med katerimi so kremni, mat, kovinski in drugi. Prav tako so spremenili embalažo, ki je meni res čudovita. Embalaža je sivo-modra z zlatim dnom, vtisnjenim imenom ob strani in logom na vrhu. Na dnu je nalepka z imenom odtenka na nalepki, ki je približek barve šminke. Odpira se enostavno in dobro tesni. Sama šminka je pakirana še v kartonasto škatlico. Na sami šminki je tudi vtisnjen logo UD.

Urban Decay reformulated their lipsticks a few months ago and then spectacularly launched 100 lipsticks with six different finishes, amongst which are cream, matte, metalized and others. They also changed the packaging which I find gorgeous. The packaging is gunmetal with a gold bottom with the name engraved on the side and the logo on the top. There’s a sticker on the bottom with the shade name that is similar to the lipstick color. It opens easily and closes tightly. The lipstick itself is packaged in a cardboard box. There’s also an embossed UD logo on the lipstick.

Naj začnem s prvo šminko, ki sem jo kupila, torej Gubby. Gubby je opisana kot (glazirana) svetlo rožnata šminka s kovinskim finišem. To lahko tudi sama potrdim. Ker je svetle barve s kovinskim finišem je veliko manj prekrivna, manj pigmentirana, in to mi je všeč. Šminko sem kupila, da jo bom nosila samostojno in za nanos čez kakšne druge mat, kremaste šminke. Največkrat pa sem jo vseeno nosila samostojno. Šminka je izredno udobna, ustnic mi ne izsuši, obdrži se pa kakšno uro, dve na ustnicah, v primeru da ne jeste, prav tako pa se ne razliva v gubice.

Let me start with the first lipstick that I bought, namely Gubby. Gubby is described as a (frosted) light pink lipstick with a metalized finish. I can confirm that. Because it’s a light color with a metalized finish has less coverage, less pigment, and I like that. I bought the lipstick to wear on its own or to apply it over other matte, creamy lipsticks. Most of the time I wore it by itself. The lipstick is very comfortable, it doesn’t dry out my lips and it stays on the lips for about an hour or two in case you don’t eat, nor does it bleed into fine lines.

Druga, katero sem naročila, je bila Liar, ki je opisana kot rožnata “nude” barva s kremnim finišem. Ta je veliko bolj kremasta, pigmentirana in posledično tudi dalj časa obstojna, če ne jeste, vendar pa ne več kot tri ure.  Ena plast popolnoma prekrije moje ustnice, za razliko od Gubby. Ustnic mi ne izsuši in zelo udobna je na ustnicah, ne razliva se v gubice, ponavadi pa tako ali tako uporabim Essence Longlasting barvico za ustnice v odtenku 05 Lovely Frappuccino in tako je šminka še bolj obstojna.  Šminko uporabljam predvsem, ko imam bolj dramatično namazane oči.

The second one I ordered was Liar which is described as a pink nude with a creamy finish. This one is a lot creamier, pigmented and consequently lasts longer if you don’t eat, but not more than three hours. Unlike Gubby, one layer is enough to cover my lips completely. It does not dry out my lips and it’s very comfortable, it doesn’t bleed into fine lines but I usually use Essence Longlasting lipliner in the shade 05 Lovely Frappuccino anyway which makes it last even longer. I use the lipstick mainly when I have a more dramatic eye look.

Šminki od Urban Decay-a sta mi izredno všeč in že imam nagledane še nekatere druge odtenke (Weirdo, Checkmatte, Seismic, Violate, Anarchy, itd.). Seveda, ko kupim naslednji dve, spet sledi ocena. Šminki sem naročila na Feelunique in za eno plačala 19,20€ za 3,4g (M.A.C. šminka ima 3g), kar pa se mi zdi za zelo dobro kvaliteto še upravičeno.

I really like the Urban Decay lipsticks and I already have a few more on my wishlist (Weirdo, Checkmatte, Seismic, Violate, Anarchy, etc.). Of course when I buy the next two a review will follow. I ordered the lipsticks on Feelunique and paid 19,20€ for one for 3,4g (M.A.C. lipstick has 3g) which seems reasonable for the great quality.
