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.

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).

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.

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?

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 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?

Stila Extreme Lash Primer and Mascara

Tole sem kupila slučajno na Beauty Bay-u, ko sem kupovala ene druge produkte in sem  naletela na tale set baze za trepalnice in maskaro za samo 9€. In še dobro da sem. 😀

I bought this by accident on Beauty Bay when I was buying some other products and I came across this set of a primer and mascara for only 9€. And it’s a good thing that I did. 😀

Naj začnem z embalažo. Čeprav sta produkta manjša in v setu, je embalaža identična “originalu”. Ta je mat zlata, z zlato pisavo in okraski. Super lepa je in zelo mi je všeč. Deluje zelo šik.

IMG_6480IMG_6493IMG_6481

Let me start with the packaging. Although these products are smaller and in a set, the packaging is the same as the “original”. It’s matte gold with gold lettering and decoration.

Začnimo kar z bazo. Baza je rjavo obarvana in ne bela, kot večina produktov za isti namen. To je seveda plus, ker tudi če ne greste z maskaro čez vsako trepalnico se ne opazi, saj ne izstopa tako, kot bi bela baza. Stila trdi, da ima baza dve vrsti vlaken (okrogle in ravne) v kremasti formuli, ki se enostavno nanaša in daje polne in dolge trepalnice. In dejansko jih. Krtača je ožja s spiralnimi ščetinami. Baza se enostavno nanaša, trepalnice rahlo obarva rjavo, jim da polnost in dolžino. Uporablja se lahko s katero koli maskaro in tudi takrat deluje enako dobro. Jaz sem zelo zadovoljna in že planiram nakup. Moja baza ima 5ml kar je veliko, saj ima “original” baza 7,5ml in stane 24€. Kupila jo bom tukaj.

IMG_6484 IMG_6491

Let’s start with the primer. The primer is brown tinted and not white as the majority of the products for the same purpose. That’s a plus of course, because if you don’t coat every lash with the mascara it’s not as visible as the white one would be. Stila claims that the primer has two different types of fibers (spherical and straight) in a creamy formula that applies easily and gives full and long lashes. And it does. The brush is thinner with spiral bristles. The primer applies easily, tints the lashes slightly brown and gives them fullness and length. It can be used with any mascara and it works good as well. I’m really very satisfied and am planning to buy it. My primer has 5ml, which is a lot because the “original” primer has 7,5ml and costs 24€. I’ll buy it here.

Stila za maskaro trdi, da je iz mehkih in fleksibilnih voskov, ki daje trepalnicam volumen in dolžino brez sprijemanja. To ne drži popolnoma. Maskara da volumen in dolžino, ampak ker je bolj mokre konsistence se trepalnice rade zlepijo skupaj. Jaz sem šla s čisto krtačko čez, da sem jih razčesala. Krtača je v obliki peščene ure, kar mi tudi ne odgovarja, saj imam raje krtače, ki imajo enako dolge ščetine. Sama maskara drugače dobro opravi svoje delo, ampak moje najljubše (Ardeco All in One) nikakor ne prekaša, zato je ne bom več kupila. Stila prav tako trdi, da maskara pusti trepalnice mehke, plast za plastjo, kar je res. Opozoriti pa moram, da so v kombinaciji z bazo trepalnice rahlo trše, ampak še vedno bolj mehke, kot pri večini maskar. Maskara se ne drobi in je dolgo obstojna. Cena je 22,70€.

IMG_6488IMG_6486

Stila claims that the mascara is made of soft and flexible waxes that give the lashes volume and length without clumping. This is not the case. The mascara does give volume and length but because it has a more wet consistency the lashes tend to stick/clump together. I went over with a clean brush to comb them. The brush has an hourglass shape that I don’t like, because I rather have a brush with all the bristles the same length. The mascara itself does a good job, but it does not top my favorite one (Artdeco All in One) so I won’t buy it again. Stila also claims that it leaves the lashes soft, layer after layer, which is true. I do have to point out that the combination of the primer and mascara does make the lashes a bit more stiff, but still softer then most of the mascaras. It doesn’t crumble and it’s long wearing. The price is 22,70€.

Če iščete dobro bazo za trepalnice pa ne veste kaj bi kupili, vam priporočam, da kupite to, saj je res dobra.

If you are looking for a good lash primer and don’t know what to buy I do recommend this one, because it’s really good.
