Semi-Sweet Chocolate bar make-up look

IMG_7995

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

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

IMG_8392

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

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

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

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

TFMCollage

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

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

IMG_8374

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

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

Too Faced: Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar

IMG_7989

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

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

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

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

IMG_7995

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

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

TooFacedCollage

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

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

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

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

Lush: Don’t look at me

IMG_7850

Kot mnogi že veste, sem obsedena z maskami za obraz, predvsem z Lushevimi maskami. Zato me je izredno hitro zamikala tudi tale, precej nova maska, Don’t look at me. Kot sem prav tako že omenila, so mi najljubše maske s katerimi lahko naredim še piling obraza.

As many of you know, I’m obsessed with face masks especially with Lush masks. Therefore I was quickly interested in this one, the quite new mask, Don’t look at me. As I also mentioned before, my favorite masks are the ones that I can use to exfoliate my face as well.

IMG_7851

Priznam, da me je maska najprej zamikala zaradi barve, saj je čudovite svetlo modro, turkizne, barve. Ko pa sem prebrala, da vsebuje tudi mleta riževa zrna, ki omogočajo piling sem bila odločena, da jo poskusim. Maska ni gosta ali trda, ampak izredno mazljiva, tako da je nanos res preprost. Diši po sladki limoni in citrusih, torej ni prekislega vonja, tudi ne presladkega. Meni se zdi ravno prav za poletje, saj je vonj precej nežen in nevsiljiv.

I admit that this mask initially tempted me because of its color, it’s a gorgeous bright blue, turquoise, color. When I read, that it also contains ground rice, that allow me to exfoliate, I was determined to try it out. The mask isn’t thick or hard, but extremely malleable, so the application is really simple.  It smells like sweet lemon and citrus, so the scent isn’t too sour as not too sweet. I think it’s just right for the summer, because the scent is pretty gentle and unobtrusive.

dontlook2Collage

Nanesem jo na cel obraz, izognem se predelu pod očmi. Masko pustim na obrazu 15 do 20 minut. Ker masko nanesem precej na debelo (lahko jo nanesete tudi manj) se dalj časa suši, ampak je po 20ih minutah suha. Po pretečenem času začnem z vlažno dlanjo masko odstranjevati in s tem naredim še piling. Mleta riževa zrna so dovolj velika in ravno prav “groba”, da učinkovito opravijo svoje delo. Jaz imam rada precej grobe pilinge, zato z roko kar precej močno pritisnem ob kožo, da je piling učinek še večji. Če niste pristaš grobih pilingov pa lahko le narahlo pritisnete ob kožo in tako umijete masko z obraza.

I apply it to the whole face, avoiding the area around the eyes. I leave the mask on for 15 to 20 minutes. Because I apply it quite thick (you can apply less) it takes a bit more time to dry, but after 20 minutes it’s dry. After the passed time I start to remove the mask with a damp palm and exfoliate in the process. The ground rice grains are large enough and “rough” enough to do the job effectively.  I like a bit more rough exfoliate, so I press quite heavily with my hand against the skin, so the exfoliating effect is even bigger. If you’re not a fan of harsh exfoliates you can press gently against the skin and wash the face that way.

Med umivanjem sem dobila rahlo masten občutek na koži, vendar pa občutek hitro izgine in ostane nam le čista koža, ki je navlažena, zato sama nisem uporabila kreme za obraz. Maska mi je všeč tudi zato, ker vsebuje limono, ki oža pore ter tunizijski neroli in organski tofu, ki posvetlita kožo in jo negujeta.

During the washing I got a slightly greasy feeling on the skin, but the feeling quickly disappears and we’re left with clean, moisturized skin, so I didn’t use any facial cream. I also like the mask, because it contains lemon, that minimises pores and Tunisian neroli and organic tofu which brighten and nourish the skin.

dontlookCollage

Vonj se na koži ne obdrži dolgo oziroma, ker je vonj precej nežen ga sama nisem več vonjala. Koža je lepo sijoča, čista in navlažena. Maska je pakirana v 75g lončku, ki je izredno priročen in tipično Lushevski. Sama sem masko dobila “zastonj”, saj sem masko menjala za 5 čistih Lushevih lončkov v trgovini. Drugače je cena maske 10,45€, kar se mi ne zdi veliko. Masko priporočam in sama jo bom z veseljem uporaljala celo poletje.

The scent doesn’t linger on the skin for long and it’s delicate as it is, so I didn’t smell it anymore. The skin is shiny, clean and moisturized. The mask is packed in a 75g pot which is extremely convenient and typical for Lush. I got this mask “for free” because I exchanged it for 5 clean Lush pots in the store. Otherwise the price for the mask is 10,45€ which I don’t find to be too much. I recommend the mask and will use it happily the whole summer.

H&M: Dry Conditioner

HMCollage

Tale H&M suhi balzam za lase se mi je zdel izredno zanimiv in sem se odločila, da ga bom preizkusila. Suhi balzam je v pločevinki na sprej, kot lak za lase ali suhi šampon. Vsebuje 250ml. Embalaža je modra, pisana, z belimi robom zgoraj in napisom v bež kvadratu. Meni je všeč.

This H&M dry conditioner seemed very interesting so I decided to try it out. The dry conditioner comes in a spray can, just like a hair spray or dry shampoo. It contains 250ml. The packaging is blue, colorful, with a white edge above and inscription in a beige square. I like it.

IMG_6642

Čeprav na navodilih piše, da je za uporabo za osvežitev las med pranji, sem ga le enkrat uporabila na tak način. Nanesli bi ga naj na spodnjo polovico las. H&M prav tako trdi, da balzam vsebuje arganovo olje ter ekstrakt avokada za sijoče in svileno gladke lase. Pred uporabo ga je potrebno dobro pretresti.

Although the instructions say to use it to  refresh the hair between washing, I used it only once that way. You are supposed to apply it on the lower half of the hair. H&M also states that the conditioner contains argan oil and avocado extract for shiny and silky smooth hair. Shake well before use.

IMG_7176

Sprej je brezbarven in diši lepo sveže. Mene vonj spominja na papajo, vendar sem zelo slaba pri opisovanju vonjev. 😀 Jaz sem ga prvič uporabila na sveže umitih laseh in balzam je dal lasem lep sijaj in lepo jih je odišavil, ampak lasje so bili tako ali tako umiti. Potem sem pa en dan uporabila suhi šampon in lasje so ponavadi po uporabi suhega šampona mat, torej brez tistega zdravega sijaja in včasih, če nanesem preveč suhega šampona, tudi rahlo sivkasti. In takrat sem se odločila nanesti direktno na lasišče še suhi balzam in zadeva je delovala. Lasje so izgledali  sveže umiti, sijoči.

The spray is colorless and smells fresh. The scent reminds me of papaya, but I’m very bad at describing scents. 😀 The first time I used it was on freshly washed hair and the conditioner gave the hair a nice shine and fresh scent, but the hair was washed anyway. Then one day I used my dry shampoo and the hair is usually matte, without the healthy shine, after using it and sometimes if I apply too much it also turns a bit greyish. In that moment I decided to use my dry conditioner directly on the scalp and it worked. The hair looked freshly washed, shiny.

IMG_7179

Od takrat naprej ga uporabljam vedno v kombinaciji s suhim šamponom, saj lasje po uporabi obeh niso mastni, so pa še vedno sijoči. Jaz si več ne predstavljam uporabe suhega šampona brez tega suhega balzama. Prav tako se mi zdi, da ga je skoraj nemogoče nanesti preveč, jaz ga nanašam po občutku.

From then on I always use it in combination with the dry shampoo, because the hair isn’t greasy, but it’s still shiny after using them both. I can’t imagine using the dry shampoo without this dry conditioner anymore. Also, it seems to me, that it’s almost impossible to apply too much, I apply it by feeling.

Kupila sem ga v H&M-u v Ljubljani (City Park) in zanj odštela 7,99€. Če uporabljate suhi šampon potem ga zelooo priporočam.

I bought it in H&M in Ljubljana (City Park) and paid 7,99€ for it. I reeeally recommend it if you use dry shampoo.

Lush: Frozen

V redu, priznam, da nisem preverila sestavin oziroma kako bi naj dišala tale krogla, ampak sem jo kupila, ker je še nisem preizkusila. In mogoče to ni bila najboljša ideja. Torej kopalna bombica je svetlo modre barve, na sredini je temno modra plast. Glavne note bi naj bile grenivka in tunizijski neroli. In čeprav mi grenivka zelo lepo, sveže, poživljajoče diši, mi tale krogla na noben način ni dišala po grenivki.

OK, I admit I didn’t check the ingredients or how this bath bomb is supposed to smell, but I bought it because I haven’t tried it yet. And maybe that wasn’t the best idea. So this bath bomb is light blue with a dark blue layer in the middle. The main notes are supposed to be grapefruit and Tunisian neroli. And although grapefruit smells really nice, fresh, invigorating to me, this bomb didn’t smell in any way like grapefruit.

FullSizeRender

Torej sam vonj je izjemno blag, meni po ničemer ni dišala, kar me je seveda razočaralo, saj imam dobre izkušnje z Lushevimi kopalnimi bombami. Opazovanje bombice kako se topi je po drugi strani pravo doživetje. Iz temno modre sredice se vali modra barva, ki me je presenetila z morjem srebrnih bleščic, ki so poplesavale po gladini. Ko se je bombica stopila so bleščice na vodi bile tako goste, da je izgledalo kot oljni madež. Sama voda je temno nebesno modra. Čudovita. Čeprav je kopanje v tej kopeli bilo res čarobno na pogled, pa mi ni prineslo zadovoljstva, ker ni dišalo. Prav tako je bleščic toliko, da se mi je koža bleščala in tudi po dolgem drgnjenju jih nisem uspela popolnoma odstranit. Čeprav me to načeloma ne moti, pa bi rada imela opcijo, da se ne svetim kot disko krogla. 😀 Vonj se na koži ne obdrži.

So the scent itself is really mild, it didn’t smell like anything to me which was of course disappointing, because I have good experience with Lush bath bombs. Watching the bomb dissolve is on the other hand a real experience. Blue color fizzes from the deep blue core, which surprised me with a sea of silver glitter that pranced on the surface. The glitter on the water was so thick, that when the bomb melted, it looked like an oil slick. The water itself is dark sky-blue. Wonderful. Although bathing in this bath was magical to look at, it didn’t bring me satisfaction because of the lack of scent. Because of the huge amount of glitter my skin sparkled and even after a long rub I couldn’t get them all off. Even though in principal I don’t mind it, I would like to have an option not to shine as a disco ball. 😀 The scent doesn’t linger on the skin.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, bleščice, parfum, grenivkino olje, nerolijevo olje, vrtnično olje, vinski kamen, natrijev lavrat sulfat, lavril betain, lilial, hydroxycitronellal, geraniol, limonene, linalool, srebrne bleščice, barvilo 42090, barvilo 42053.

Zmotilo me je tudi to, da je bila kad po kopanju prekrita z bleščicami in kljub tuširanju se niso vse sprale. Kože mi ni izsušila, ker je vedno plus. Za bombico sem odštela 6,95€ in žal je več ne bom kupila. Je veliko drugih, ki so mi veliko bolj všeč.

What also bothered me is that the bath tub was covered with glitter after bathing and despite washing it, they didn’t wash off. It didn’t dry out my skin, which is always a plus. I paid 6,95€ for the bath bomb and I won’t repurchase it. There are many others that I like much more.

Lush The Experimenter

Lush Experimenter me je pritegnil zaradi videza. Kopalna bombica je šesterokotnik, modre in rozaste na eni in bele ter rumene barve na drugi strani. Obe polovici sta zalepljeni skupaj z vijolično plastjo. Tudi samo ime je zanimivo: Experimenter. Eksperiment. Hm…le zakaj se imenuje tako? 🙂 Radovednost me je seveda premagala in kaj hitro sem jo poskusila. Glavna nota je vanilija, ki mi zelo lepo diši, če le ne diši umetno.

Lush Experimenter attracted me because of it’s appearance. The bath bomb is a hexagon, blue and pink on one and white and yellow on the other side. Both halves are glued together with a purple layer. The name itself is interesting: Experimenter. Experiment. Why is it named like that? 🙂 Curiosity got the best of me and I had to try it. The main note is vanilla, which I like as long as it doesn’t smell artificially.

Lush-The-Experimenter-Review

Sama bombica meni ne diši po vaniliji. Diši po Lushu. 🙂 Vsi, ki poznate Lush, veste o čem govorim. Bombica je mešanica cvetličnega, sadnega in sladkega vonja, kjer nič ne izstopa, ampak note sodelujejo druga z drugo. Vonj je blag in na koži se obdrži par ur. Gledanje te bombice kako se topi v vodi je pravo doživetje. Iz bombice na gladini vode plešejo rumena, modra, rožnata barva, ki se skupaj mešajo v zeleno, potem modro zeleno in na koncu v temno zeleno barvo. Ker so v bombici drobne bleščice se te v vodi svetlikajo in se tudi prilepijo na kožo. Kožo je potrebno dobro umiti po kopanju, če ne želite da bleščice ostanejo na koži.

The bomb itself doesn’t smell like vanilla. It smells like Lush. 🙂 Everyone that is familiar with Lush knows what I’m talking about. The bomb is a mixture of flowery, fruity and sweet scent, where nothing stands out, but the notes work together. The scent is mild and stays on the skin for a few hours. Watching this bomb fizzing in the water is a true adventure. The bomb makes yellow, blue and pink color dance together on the surface and then mix together into a green, then blue green and lastly dark green color. Since the bath bomb does contain shimmer, the water sparkles and the shimmer does stick to your skin. You do need to wash thoroughly after bathing if you don’t want the shimmer to stay on the skin.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, parfum, pokajoči bonbončki, vetiverjevo olje, absolut tonke, absolut vanilije iz pravične trgovine, vinski kamen, voda, titanov dioksid, natrijev lavrat sulfat, lavril betain, kumarin, eugenol, limonene, linalool, kalcijev natrijev borosilikat, kositrov oksid, zlate bleščice, barvilo 42090, barvilo 45410, barvilo 45350 (Lush.si)

Kože mi ne izsuši, kar je vedno plus, še posebej pozimi, ko je moja koža izredno občutljiva. Za kopalno bombico sem odštela 6,95€ kar se mi za občasno razvajanje ne zdi veliko in jaz jo bom še sigurno kupila.

It doesn’t dry out my skin, which is always a plus, especially in the winter time, when my skin is extremely sensitive. I paid 6,95€ which is OK for an occasional indulgence. See the bomb in action in the video above.
