Benefit: Cheekathon

IMG_8001

Od Benefita imam že par izdelkov, tudi rdečila. Eno izmed mojih ljubših rdečil je prav od Benefita in sicer Bella Bamba, ki je vzeta iz prodaje, jaz pa sem že skoraj pri koncu. 😦 Prav tako imam Coralisto, ki pa mi je padla na tla in se razbila. Čeprav sem jo popravila, pa se vseeno drobi kar precej in jo nerada uporabljam. Kar se kvalitete tiče pa sta ti dve rdečili top, zato sem bila tudi tako navdušena nad to paleto.

I have a few products from Benefit, blushes also. One of my favorite blushes is from Benefit and it’s the Bella Bamba that was discontinued and I almost used it up. 😦 I also have Coralista, that fell on the floor and broke. Although I did fix it it still crumbles a lot so I don’t like using it. As far as the quality goes these two blushes are amazing and that’s why I was so excited about this palette.

Paleta vsebuje pet full size rdečil: Dandelion, Hoola, Rockateur, Dallas in Coralisto. Embalaža je kartonasta, vendar zelo dobro izdelana. Paleta je rožnate barve z zlatimi flekci in izredno všečno slikico na prednji strani. Z notranje strani imam ogledalo dobre velikosti, plastično zaščito (ki sem jo takoj vrgla), majhno krtačko in 5 rdečil. Notri je bila prav tako majhna knjigica z navodili in triki. Paleta bi lahko bila rahlo ožja in tako bolj primerna za potovanja a se tudi s to znajdem.

The palette contains five full size blushes: Dandelion, Hoola, Rockateur, Dallas and Coralista. The packaging is cardboard but very well made. The palette is pink with gold flecks and a really cute picture on the front. There’s a mirror on the inside that is a good size, a plastic cover (that I threw right away), small brush and 5 blushes. There was also a small book with tips and tricks. The palette could be a bit thinner so it would be better for traveling but I can work with this.

Če preidem na sama rdečila. Dandelion in Hoola sta mat, Dallas in Coralista imata sijaj, Rockateur pa ima mikro bleščice. Rdečila so zelo kvalitetna, ravno prav mehka, dobro pigmentirana in se lepo nanašajo in zabrišejo. Mat rdečili sta rahlo bolj pudrasti a mene iskreno to ne moti. Čopič je OK, nič posebnega, sama ga uporabljam za konturiranje s Hoola bronzerjem in se dobro obnese.

Let me get to the blushes. Dandelion and Hoola are matte, Dallas and Coralista have a sheen, Rockateur has shimmer. The blushes are very good quality, soft enough, nicely pigmented and apply and blend easily. The matte blushes are a bit more powdery but I honestly don’t mind. The brush is OK, nothing special, I use it for contouring with the Hoola bronzer and it works well.

Dandelion je nežno rožnato rdečilo, ki po mojem mnenju paše na vsak ten. Hoola je kultni mat bronzer z neutralnim podtonom, tako da je super za konturiranje. Rockateur je prav tako nežno rožnato rdečilo z dodatkom slezenaste ter  z zlatimi mikro bleščicami, ki dajo licu lep sijaj. Dallas je rožnato rjavo rdečilo s toplim podtonom, tako da je super za punce s temnejšim tenom oziroma če ga nanesemo previdno je lahko lepo nevtralno rdečilo. Zadnje je Coralista, ki je najbolj znano rdečilo od Benefita in tudi najbolj univerzalno po mojem mnenju, saj je čudovita barva breskve z lepim sijajem.

Dandelion is a soft rose blush that in my opinion work on everyone. Hoola is a cult matte bronzer with neutral undertones so it’s great for contouring. Rockateur is also a soft rose blush with a hint of mauve and gold shimmer that gives the cheeks a nice shine. Dallas is a pinkish brown blush with warm undertones so it’s great for girls with a darker skin tone or if you use a light hand it’s a great neutral blush. The last is Coralista that’s also the most famous blush from Benefit and also the most universal in my opinion because it’s a gorgeous peach with a nice shine.

Če pogledam na paleto kot na celoto, bi lahko rekla, če ne bi bila obsedena z ličili, da je to edina paleta za obraz, ki jo potrebujem. A bodimo realni, verjetno bom kaj hitro našla nekaj kar bom spet nujno potrebovala. 😀 Kljub temu sem s paleto izredno zadovoljna. Paleto sem kupila v Sephori v Italiji in za njo odštela 60€, kar je super, saj je drugače eno posamezno rdečilo od Benefita okoli 33€. Paleta se še dobi v Sephori in na določenih spletnih straneh, tako da če vas zanima potem pohitite, saj ne bo dolgo v prodaji. Za več slik in swatchev pa klik tukaj.

If I look at the palette as a whole I could say, if I wasn’t obsessed with make-up, that this is the only face palette I need. But let’s be real I’ll probably find something soon that I’ll need. 😀 Nevertheless, I’m extremely satisfied with the palette. I bought it in Sephora in Italy and paid 60€ which is great because otherwise a single blush from Benefit goes for around 33€. You can still get the palette in Sephora and on certain websites so if you’re interested hurry up because it is a limited edition item. For more pictures and swatches click here.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Enobarven rožnat make-up

IMG_7133

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

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

IMG_7116

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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