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.

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.

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!

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

IMG_7031

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.
