Makeup Geek: Rebel in Toxic

img_9201

Ker vidim, da imate radi, ko ocenjujem Makeup Geek senčila, sta tukaj spet dve novi, ki ju še nisem uspela oceniti. Tokrat sta na vrsti Rebel in Toxic.

Because I can see that you like my Makeup Geek reviews I reviewed two new eyeshadows that I didn’t have the time to post until now. It’s time for Rebel and Toxic.

Makeup Geek trdi, da je Rebel globoko umazano vijolično senčilo z zlatim odsevom in shimmer finišem. Recimo, da se strinjam z vsem edino z delom “globoko”. 🙂 Senčilo je ravno prav kremasto vendar pa ni najbolj pigmentirano oziroma barva sama je takšna, da mogoče ne deluje najbolj pigmentirano. Nanaša in blenda se lepo. Tudi zlati odsev je lepo viden. Meni osebno barva ni najbolj všeč in zato sem tudi senčilo uporabila le dvakrat do sedaj. Uporabila sem ga že cez celo veko in v notranjem kotičku očesa. To je verjetno tudi edino senčilo od Makeup Geek-a, ki mi do sedaj ni bilo všeč.

Makeup Geek claims that Rebel is a deep dusty purple with a gold overlay and a shimmery finish. Let’s say that I agree with everything except with the “deep” part. 🙂 The eyeshadow is creamy but not very pigmented or the color itself is such that it doesn’t look pigmented. It applies and blends nicely. The gold reflect is also nicely seen. I myself don’t like the color very much and that’s also why I used the eyeshadow only twice until now. I used it all over the eyelid as well as only in the inner corner of the eye. This is also the only eyeshadow from Makeup Geek that I don’t like so far.

Toxic je senčilo, ki mi je veliko bolj všeč. Makeup Geek trdi, da je Toxic globoko melancana vijolično senčilo z shimmer finišem. Toxic mi deluje podobno kot Rebel in sicer izgleda mi kot temno vijolična podlaga s toplim podtonom in globoko vijoličnim odsevom. Senčilo je ravno prav mehko, se ne drobi in se lepo blenda. Jaz ga velikokrat uporabim na sredini veke za poživitev kakšne druge mat vijolične senčke. Meni je senčilo zelo všeč in ga priporočam.

img_9177

Toxic is an eyeshadow that I like much more. Makeup Geek claims that it’s a deep eggplant purple with a shimmery finish. Toxic is similar to Rebel in a way that it looks like a deep purple base with a warm undertone and a deep purple reflect. The eyeshadow is soft enough, doesn’t crumble and blends nicely. I often use it on the center of the eyelid over a purple eyeshadow to pick it up a bit. I really like the eyeshadow and I recommend it.

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 7,40€ na Beauty Bay strani, kjer sem jih tudi sama kupila (ceno so dvignili iz 6,30€).  Prav tako ne pozabite, da vas v naslednji objavi čaka make-up izgled z uporabo enega od dveh senčil.

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 7,40€ on Beauty Bay, where I bought them (they increased the price from 6,30€). Also don’t forget that there will be a make-up look using one of these shades in the next blog post.

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.

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.

LASplash2Collage

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.

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.

IMG_8215

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.

IMG_8139

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.

IMG_8146

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?

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?

ABH: Pro Series Powder Contour Banana in Vanilla

ABHCollage

Anastasia Beverly Hills mi je bila vedno zanimiva in vsakič, ko sem gledala punce kako so uporabljale njene palete za konturiranje, sem si želela, da bi si jo tudi jaz lahko kupila. Čez čas me je minil nakup palete, še vedno pa sem si želela dober banana puder v kamnu ali prahu za fiksiranje korektorja. Na mojo srečo je, po neuspešnem iskanju, Beauty Bay dobil posamezne pudre v kamnu za ponovno polnitev palet.

I was always interested in Anastasia Beverly Hills and every time I watched girls use her contour palette I always wished I could buy it as well. After a while I lost interest in the palette but I still wanted a good banana powder, compact or loose, for setting my concealer. Luckily for me after an unsuccessful search, Beauty Bay got the individual refill powders for the palettes.

IMG_8130

Odločila sem se kupiti kar dve barvi, saj me je skrbelo, da bi bila Banana preveč rumena zame, ki imam precej bolj nevtralno hladen podton. Tako sem poleg Banane kupila še Vanilijo. Ker so to posamezni pudri, ki so za ponovno polnitev palete, nimajo svoje embalaže, ampak so pakirani le v kartonasti škatlici in potrebujete paleto v katero jih boste shranili. Sama ju hranim v Z paleti, ki je super priročna.

I decided to buy two shades because I was worried that Banana would be too yellow for me because I have a more neutral cool undertone. So in addition to Banana I bought Vanilla as well. Because these are individual refill powders they come just in a pan packaged in a cardboard box and you need a palette to store them in. I store them in a Z palette which is super convenient.

ABHCollage3

Levo/Left: Vanilla, Desno/Right: Banana

Prvi šok, ki sem ga doživela, je bila velikost samih pudrov. Pri naročanju namreč nisem bila pozorna na težo produkta, tako da sem pričakovala standardnih 5-6g. Dobila sem seveda veliko manj in sicer 3g. Še dobro, da pudra uporabljam samo pod očmi, saj ju tako ne porabim veliko.

The first shock that I experienced was the size of the powders. While ordering them I wasn’t paying attention to the weight of the product so I expected a standard 5-6g. I of course got a lot less, namely 3g. It’s good that I only use the powder under my eyes so I don’t use a lot.

Levo/Left: Samo puder in korektor. / Just foundation and concealer.                           Desno/Right: Pod levim očesom Banana, pod desnim očesom Vanilla. / Under the left eye Banana, under the right eye Vanilla.

Banana je svetlo rumen mat puder, Vanilla pa svetlo krem, delno mat. Oba pudra sta ravno prav mehka, da se lepo oprimeta ščetin na čopiču. Pudra sta prav tako precej pigmentirana, Banana bolj kot Vanilla, tako da dodatno prekrijeta moje temne podočnjake. Ker se mi je Banana zdel prerumen sem ju začela mešati in tako dobila perfektni odtenek. Pudra dobro fiksirata moj korektor in tudi predel pod očmi lepo osvetlita.

Banana is a pale matte yellow, Vanilla is a pale demi matte cream. Both of the powders are soft enough so they stick to the brush bristles. The powders are quite pigmented as well, Banana more than Vanilla so they additionally cover my dark under eye circles. Because I thought that Banana was too yellow I started mixing them together and that’s how I got the perfect shade. The powders set my concealer really well and also brighten the under eye area.

Končni izgled, pomešana pudra / Finished look, mixed powders.

Za 3g produkta sem na Beauty Bayu odštela 16,50€ kar se mi zdi veliko za sicer dober puder. Velik plus je, da je izbor odtenkov širok, tako da lahko vsaka najde nekaj zase in si načeloma kupi le enega, namesto cele palete. Jaz ju bom z veseljem porabila, nisem pa prepričana, da ju bom spet kupila. Bolj me mika Laura Mercier Brightening powder za predel pod očmi. Kaj vi uporabljate za fiksiranje korektorja? Priporočate kaj?

I paid 16,50€ on Beauty Bay for 3g of product and I find that to be too much for a powder that is good. The big plus is that there is a wide selection of shades so everyone can find something for themselves and generally buy only one instead of the whole palette. I will happily use them but I’m not sure I’ll buy them again. I’m more temped by the Laura Mercier Brightening powder for the under eye area. What do you use for setting you concealer? Do you recommend anything?

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Potovalna make-up torbica

travelCollage

Tokrat sem se odločila deliti z vami kaj nesem s seboj, ko grem na dopust. Načeloma vedno poskušam spakirati čim manj stvari in čeprav sem prej ponavadi nesla kar vse s sabo, pa sem sedaj res pridna, saj nesem le “nujne” stvari. Kljub temu nekaj opcij potrebujem, zato moja kozmetična torbica v nobenem primeru ni prazna.

This time I decided to share with you what I take with me, when I go on vacation. In principal I always try to pack as little as I can and although I used to take everything, I’m really good now, because I take only “necessary” things. Nevertheless I do still need some options, so my cosmetics bag is in no way empty.

travel1Collage

Naj začnem pri bazi. S seboj nesem dve bazi, eno za obraz in eno za oči. Za obraz poleti največkrat uporabljam The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser in pa Essence I ❤ Stage baza za oči. Naslednji je tekoči puder. Ker sem popolnoma navdušena nad Clinique Beyond perfecting foundation + concealer tekočim pudrom (ocena tukaj), gre absolutno z mano, ampak z mano potuje tudi Burjois Serum foundation, za dneve, ko ne želim polno prekrivnega pudra. Catrice Camoflauge concealer je zadnje čase edini korektor katerega uporabljam, zato gre tudi ta z mano. Tekoči puder in korektor vedno fiksiram in v ta namen vzamem Maybelline Shine Free loose powder ter MAC blotting powder.

Let’s start with the base. I take two with me, one for the face and one for the eyes. In the summer I usually use The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser and the Essence I ❤ Stage eyeshadow base. Next is liquid foundation. Since I’m totally impressed with the Clinique Beyond perfecting foundation + concealer (review here), I absolutely take it with me, but I take Burjois Serum foundation as well, for days when I don’t want a full coverage foundation. Catrice Camouflage concealer is the only concealer I’ve been using lately, so this one is also coming with. I always set my foundation and concealer and I take Maybelline Shine Free loose powder and MAC blotting powder for that.

Barve vsekakor ne morejo manjkati in zato bom začela kar s paleto za oči. Paleto senčil izberem glede na to, koliko opcij želim imeti. Največkrat potuje z mano Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette (ocena tukaj), saj mi nudi veliko opcij, ki so vedno dobrodošle. Za obraz bom prav tako vzela Zoevino paleto Coral (ocena tukaj) iz istega razloga, saj imam več opcij. Osvetljevalec je nujno potreben in tokrat sem se odločila za The Balm Manizer sisters paleto (ocena tukaj). Edini bronzer katerega trenutno uporabljam in ga pod nobenim pogojem ne bi pustila doma je Urban Decay Beached bronzer (ocena tukaj). 🙂

Colors definitely can’t be missing and because of that I’ll start with the eyeshadow palette. I choose an eyeshadow palette depending on how many options I like to have. Most of the time I take the Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette (review here), because it offers a lot of options, that are always welcome. For the face I’ll take Zoeva Coral blush palette (review here) for the same reason, more options. Highlighter is extremely necessary and this time I decided for The Balm Manizer sisters palette (review here). The only bronzer I’m using at this time and wouldn’t leave it at home under any circumstances is Urban Decay Beached bronzer (review here).

IMG_7878

Na koncu ne smem nikakor pozabiti še na maskaro, ki je v tem primeru MAC Haute & Naughty lash (ocena tukaj) in barvico za obrvi NYX ter Essence gel za obrvi Make me brow, brez katerega ne morem živeti. Za ustnice ponavadi vzamem kakšno mat obstojno šminko, barvico za ustnice, glos in še kakšno šminko. Tokrat gredo z mano NYX Soft matte lip cream v barvi Morroco, Essence Longlasting barvici za ustnice v barvi 04 Peach Beauty in 05 Lovely Frappuccino (ocena tukaj), Khroma Beauty lip glosa v barvah Raw Honey in Wildflower Honey (ocena tukaj), ter Stila Stay All Day liquid lipstick v odtenku Amalfi, Essence šminka (LE 50’s Girls Reloaded) 02 I’m Sailing in H&M šminka 023 Powder Puff (ocena kmalu).

In the end I can’t forget the mascara, which is in this case MAC Haute & Naughty lash (review here) and an eyebrow pencil from NYX as well as the Essence eyebrow gel Make me brow, that I can’t live without. For the lips I usually take a matte long wearing lipstick, lip liner, gloss and some lipstick. This time I’ll be taking NYX Soft matte lip cream in Morroco, Essence Longlasting lipliners in the shade 04 Peach Beauty and 05 Lovely Frappuccino (review here), Khroma Beauty lip gloss in the colors Raw Honey and Wildflower Honey (review here) as well as Stila Stay All Day liquid lipstick in Amalfi, Essence lipstick (LE 50’s Girls Reloaded) 02 I’m Sailing and H&M lipstick 023 Powder Puff (review soon).

Seveda ne smemo pozabiti še na čopiče in pa Beauty Blender. Pri čopičih nisem izbirčna, saj jih nimam tako veliko in vedno vzamem vse s seboj. To je vse kar bom tokrat nesla s seboj na dopust. V komentarju spodaj pa mi napišite brez česa vi ne morete na dopust?

Of course I can’t forget my brushes and my Beauty Blender. I’m not picky with the brushes, because I don’t have that many so I always take them all with me. This is what I’ll be taking on vacation this time. What items do you take while vacationing? Leave me a comment.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

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.
