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.

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! 😉

Urban Decay: Beached Bronzer

IMG_7648

Odkar je ta bronzer v prodaji, nisem še slišala ene osebe, da bi rekla karkoli slabega čez njega. Zato sem ga tudi sama kupila, da vidim, če je res tako dober. In da, je. Mislim, da lahko brez slabe vesti rečem, da je to najboljši produkt vseh produktov, ki sem ga kdajkoli imela, uporabljala, kupila. Tako je. Najboljši.

Since this bronzer has been sold, I haven’t heard one person saying anything bad about it. This is why I bought it myself, to see, if it’s really that good. And yes, it is. I think I can say with confidence, that this is the best product of all products I have ever had, used, bought. That’s right. The best.

Pri meni ni poletja, jeseni, zime, pomladi, brez bronzerja. Uporabljam ga vedno. Uporabljam ga za senčenje obraza in da obrazu dodam malo barve, saj sem precej svetlopolta. Sama sem se odločila za temnejši odtenek Bronzed, saj poleti, ko bom malce zagorela, bom potrebovala nekaj temnejšega. Nisem pa nikoli pričakovala, da bo ta bronzer dober tudi za čas, ko sem svetlejše polti.

For me there’s no summer, autumn, winter, spring, without a bronzer. I always use it. I use it to contour my face and to give my face a bit of color, since I have a pretty light skin tone. I decided to go with the darker shade Bronzed, because in the summer, when I’m a bit more tanned, I’ll need something darker. I’ve never expected that this bronzer will also be good for the time, when I’m lighter.

Bronzer ima čudovito embalažo. Priznam, da sem ga kupila tudi zaradi tega. Embalaža je okrogla, s pokrovom na poklop. Le-ta je bronaste barve s prelepo sliko palm na pokrovu. Čudovito. 🙂 V notranjosti je tudi ogledalo. Dobimo 9g produkta, kar je veliko in verjetno bo dovolj za kar nekaj časa.

The bronzer has a beautiful packaging. I admitt, that I bought it for the packaging as well. The packaging is round, with a lid. It’s a bronzy colored compact with a gorgeous image of palms on the lid. Stunning. 🙂 There’s a mirror on the inside as well. We get 9g of product, which is a lot and will probably be enough for quite some time.

Bronzer je ravno prav mehak in čudovit na otip. Kot maslo. Bronzer je mat, kar meni odgovarja, ravno zaradi tega, ker obraz z njim tudi senčim. Čopič brez težav zajame produkt in ga enakomerno nanese na obraz. Kar je najboljše pri tem produktu je to, da ne glede na to kako težko roko imate pri nanosu, vedno ga boste lahko razmazale/zblendale dovolj, da bo izgledalo naravno. Jaz ga uporabljam čisto vsak dan, ostali bronzerji pa so trenutno na pavzi. Čeprav izgleda precej topel pa je na koži čudovit, tako da menim, da ga lahko uporabljate vsi, ne glede na podton.

The bronzer is soft enough and wonderful to the touch. Like butter. The bronzer is matte and I like it, because I also contour with it. The brush easily captures the product and applies it evenly on the face. What’s great with this product is that no matter how heavy you hand is while applying, you’ll always be able to blend it enough for it to look natural. I use it every single day, the other bronzers are on a break. Although it looks pretty warm it’s gorgeous on the skin, so I think that anyone can use it, no matter the undertone.

Sama sem imela plan za zimo kupiti svetlejši odtenek, Sunkissed, ampak mislim, da bom kar ostala pri tem, saj po mojem mnenju s tem bronzerjem ne morete izgledati nenaravno. 😀 Naročila sem ga v Doulgasu (Avstrija) in zanj odštela 29€. Resda ni malo, ampak iskreno lahko rečem, da se splača. Prav tako ga lahko naročite na FeelUnique za 26,40€.

I myself had a plan to buy the lighter shade, Sunkissed, for the winter, but I think that I’ll just stick to this one, because in my opinion you can’t look unnatural with this bronzer. 😀 I ordered it in Douglas (Austria) and paid 29€. It’s true that the price is quite high, but I can honestly say, that it’s worth it. You can also order it on FeelUnique for 26,40€.

The Balm: The Manizer Sisters

IMG_6963

Osvetljevanje obraza je na vrhuncu popularnosti. Sama se osvetljevanja obraza poslužujem že nekaj časa, ampak trenutno sem v fazi, ko najprej pogledam kakšen osvetljevalec kdo ima. 😉 Na listi želja sem dolgo imela The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer osvetljevalec, ki je prodajni hit pri tej znamki. Ko pa sem zagledala ta trio, sem vedela da bo moj. 🙂

Highlighting the face is at the peak of its popularity. I have been highlighting my face for quite some time now, but now I’m in the phase that the first thing I do, is look which highlighter someone has. 🙂 I had Mary-Lou Manizer from The Balm, the top selling item from the brand, on my wish list for a while now. So when I saw this trio, I knew it would be mine. 🙂

IMG_6962

The Balm ima že leta v prodaji tri sestre Manizer in sicer Mary-Lou, Cindy-Lou in Betty-Lou Manizer, ki so lani stopile skupaj v paleto. Če kupite en osvetljevalec dobite 8,5g produkta, tukaj dobite 3g vsakega produkta, kar tudi ni malo.

The Balm has sold the three Manizer sisters for years, namely Mary-Lou, Cindy-Lou and Betty-Lou Manizer, that came together in a palette last year. If you buy one highlighter by itself, you get 8,5g of product, here you get 3g of each, which is quite enough.

IMG_6956

Meni je paleta super všeč. Že sam izgled palete je unikaten, zanimiv, lep. Paleta je kartonasta, zelo dobro narejena, pokrov je na magnet, tako da se dobro zapre. Notri je majhno ogledalo, ki je dovolj veliko za popravke čez dan. Paleta pride v kartonastem rokavu, katerega lahko zvržete, saj je podoba na rokavu enaka podobi na paleti.

I like this palette a lot. The palette itself is unique, exciting, beautiful. The palette is made of cardboard, very well made, it has a magnet lid, so it closes nicely. Inside is a small mirror, which is big enough for touch-ups during the day. The palette comes in a cardboard sleeve, that you can throw away, because the image on the sleeve is the same as the one on the palette.

Gremo kar na sam produkt. Naj pripomnim, da lahko osvetljevalce uporabite tudi kot senčila. Vsi trije osvetljevalci so izredno kremasti, ravno prav mehki, niso pudrasti, produkt se zelo lepo nanaša. Prav tako se z lahkoto razmažejo, zblendajo, in so dolgo obstojni.

Let’s go to the product. I have to state that you can use the highlighters as eyeshadows as well. All three highlighters are extremely creamy, soft enough, not powdery, the product applies very nicely. They also blend really easy and are long-wearing.

Mary-Lou je bež osvetljevalec z zlatim sijajem. Predstavljajte si barvo šampanjca. Tega tudi največ uporabljam, ko želim, da je le-ta bolj izrazit. Uporabljam ga za osvetlitev v notranjem kotičku očesa, kot tudi po celem obrazu, saj je enostavno čudovit. Cindy-Lou je v barvi breskve z rožnatim podtonom in rožnatim sijajem. Ta ima med sestrami tudi najbolj nežen sijaj. Jaz ga uporabljam čez rdečilo, da mu dam piko na i. 😉 Betty-Lou je rjave barve, s toplimi podtoni in zlatim sijajem. Tega bomo dame, s svetlo poltjo, težko uporabile kot osvetljevalec, zato ga jaz uporabim kot rdečilo oziroma čez bronzer. Poleti, ko bom bolj zagorela bom uporabljala samo to na licih.

Mary-Lou is a beige highlighter with a golden sheen. Imagine the color of champagne. I use this one the most, when I want it to be more explicit. I use it to lighten my inner eye corner and the whole face, because it’s just gorgeous.  Cindy-Lou is peachy-pink with a pink sheen. This one has the softest shine between the sisters. I use it over the blush, to top it off. 😉 Betty-Lou is brown with warm undertones and a golden sheen. Fair skin ladies won’t be able to use this as a highlighter, so I use it as a blush or over a bronzer. In the summer, when I’m more tanned, I will use it on the cheeks.

Manizer sestre so res odličen produkt primeren za vsakogar. Jaz sem paleto kupila na Cloud10Beauty strani in zanjo odštela 28€. Ali ste že poskusile katero od Manizer sester? Kako se vam zdi produkt? Pustite mi komentar spodaj. 😉

The Manizer sisters are really a great product suitable for anyone. I bought this palette on Cloud10Beauty and paid 28€ for it. Did you try any of the Manizer sisters? Did you like the product? Leave me a comment below. 😉
