Moji najljubši izdelki leta 2016 #1

bestof2016collage

Podobno kot lani, bom tudi letos razdelila moje najljubše izdelke v dve skupini in sicer v skupino z negovalnimi izdelki in v skupino z ličili in produkti za ličenje. Čeprav sem že malce pozna pa verjamem, da vas seeno zanima kateri produkti so me navdušili. Produkti, ki so bili že ocenjeni na mojem blogu bodo vsebovali tudi povezavo do originalne ocene, drugače pa bo vsak produkt spremljala kratka ocena. Pa začnimo.

as last year I also divided my favorite products into two groups, namely in a group with care cosmetics and a group with make-up. Although I’m a bit late  I do believe that you’re still interested in which products impressed me. The products that were already reviewed on my blog will contain a link to the original review  Let’s start.

  1. ESSENCE – LONGLASTING LIPLINER

Te obstojne barvice za ustnice so bile ena izmed mojih prvih ocen na blogu in tudi po enem letu sem enakega mnenja. Barvice so fantastične, obstojne, prijetne na ustnicah, jih ne izsušijo. Edina stvar, ki me žalosti je izbira barv. Sama imam 7 izmed 9 odtenkov in čeprav so mi vse barve, ki jih posedujem zelo všeč, pa bi mi prav prišle še kakšne druge z isto formulo seveda. Pri meni so številka 1 in jih ne menjam. Povezava do ocene je TUKAJ.

IMG_6368

These longlasting lipliners were one of my first reviews on the blog and even after the whole year my opinion hasn’t changed. The liners are fantastic, long lasting, comfortable on the lips and they don’t dry them out. The only thing that makes me sad is the color selection. I have 7 from the 9 shades and although I love all of the shades I have I could use a few more with the same formula of course. For me they are no. 1 and that won’t change. Link to the review is HERE.

      2. URBAN DECAY – BEACHED BRONZER

Če ste prebrale mojo oceno potem veste, da sem popolnoma predana temu bronzerju. Uporabljala sem ga 98% časa odkar sem ga kupila in še vedno ga redno uporabljam. Porabi se ga izredno malo, glede na to da je bil to skoraj edini bronzer, ki sem ga uporabljala in še vedno nisem prišla do dna embalaže. Bronzer se čudovito nanaša, lepo razmaže po koži, koža pa izgleda naravno zagorela.  Če vas zanima več lahko celo oceno preberete TUKAJ.

IMG_7648

If you read my review then you know that I’m totally dedicated to this bronzer. I used it 98% of the time since I bought it and I still use it regularly. I still didn’t hit pan although this was almost the only bronzer I used so I can say that you won’t use it up fast. The bronzer applies and blends nicely on the skin and the skin looks naturally tanned. If you want to know more about it you can read the whole review HERE.

      3. MAC – PRO LONGWEAR CONCEALER

Čeprav sem tale korektor lani začela malo zanemarjati, saj sem želela poskusiti še kakšnega drugega, novega, pa sem se proti koncu leta spet vrnila k temu in se ponovno zaljubila. Še vedno je edini, ki skoraj popolnoma prekrije moje temne podočnjake, se ne poseda v gubice in zdrži na koži cel dan. Zame je torej že leta najboljši, ki sem ga poskusila in verjamem, da bo to še dolgo ostal. Pri MAC-u imate prav tako na izbiro ogromno odtenkov, tako da s tem ne boste imeli težav, edini minus je ta, da se v Sloveniji MAC ne dobi, se pa dobi pri naših sosedih v Zagrebu in tudi v Avstriji. Če še vedno iščete korektor za vaše temne podočnjake potem vam priporočam, da poskusite tega.

img_9407

Although I started neglecting this concealer last year because I wanted to try other ones I came back to it at the end of the year and I fell in love again. It’s still the only one that covers my under eye circles almost completely, doesn’t settle in fine lines and lasts on the skin throughout the day. For me it’s been the best for years now and I believe it will stay the best for a long time. With MAC you have a wide shade selection so you won’t have a problem with that but the only minus is that you can’t buy MAC in Slovenia but you can buy it in Austria or in Zagreb (Croatia). If you’re still looking for a concealer for your dark under eye circles then I recommend you try this one.

      4. CLINIQUE – BEYOND PERFECTING FOUNDATION & CONCEALER

Čeprav mi izbira odtenkov pri nas nikakor ne odgovarja, saj mi je najsvetlejši odtenek pozimi malce pretemen (drugače se v tujini oziroma na spletu dobijo še svetlejši odtenki) pa je še vedno moj najpogosteje uporabljen tekoči puder. Na začetku sem ga raje nanašala s čopičem, sedaj, ko moja koža ni več tako problematična, pa raje uporabim gobico, tako da izgleda malce bolj naravno. Pozimi si pomagam s svetlejšim korektorjem, da ga malce posvetlim, drugače pa je ravno prav. Prekriva zelo dobro in je dolgo obstojen. Povezava do ocene je TUKAJ.

IMG_7296

Although I really don’t like the shade selection in Slovenia because the lightest shade is still too dark for me in the winter (you can find lighter shades abroad or online) this is still my most used foundation. In the beginning I liked applying it with a brush but now that my skin is not that problematic anymore I rather use a sponge so it looks a bit more natural. I help myself with a lighter concealer in the winter to lighten it up otherwise it’s just right. It covers very good and it’s long wearing. Link to the review HERE.

       5. JOUER – LIQUID LIPSTICK

Jouer tekoče šminke sem odkrila proti koncu leta, ampak odkar sem kupila prvo in jo poskusila sem predana samo še tem tekočim šminkam. Tako izredno udobne so na ustnicah, hitro se posušijo, dolgo so obstojne, ne drobijo se, v glavnem super so. Pri temnejših oziroma bolj živih barvah je sicer potrebno po jedi v večini primerov šminko ponovno nanesti, saj na notranjem robu ustnic včasih izgine, ampak ponoven nanos je enostaven in šminka ostane udobna na ustnicah. Zame so res top in zelo rada jih uporabljam.

img_9401

I found out about Jouer liquid lipsticks at the end of the year but since I bought my first one and tried it out I’m dedicated only to these liquid lipsticks. They are extremely comfortable on the lips, they dry really fast and are long wearing, they don’t crumble and are really great. With the darker or bolder shades you do have to reapply after eating because they sometimes fade in the inner rim of the lips but reapplying is really easy and the lipstick stays comfortable on the lips. For me they are the top and I love using them.

       6. L.O.V. – CARING VOLUME GLOSS

L.O.V. glosi so me hitro navdušili saj so izredno udobni na ustnicah, jih ne izsušujejo,  mogoče jih celo malenkost vlažijo, niso lepljivi in so dobro obstojni, koliko so pač glosi lahko obstojni. Barve niso izredno pigmentirane, ampak so ravno dovolj. Sama imam 2 odtenka in veliko sem ju uporabljala od dneva nakupa. Glose res priporočam, če iščete nekaj za vsak dan. Povezava do ocene je TUKAJ.

IMG_8604

The L.O.V. glosses impressed me quickly because they are extremely comfortable on the lips, they don’t dry them out, they even moisturize them a bit, are not sticky and are quite long lasting as much as glosses can be long lasting. The colors are not crazy pigmented but are pigmented enough. I have 2 shades and I used them a lot since I bought them. I really do recommend these glosses if you’re looking something for a day to day use. Link to the review is HERE.

      7. TOO FACED – SEMI SWEET CHOCOLATE PALETTE

Za najboljšo sem jo izbrala zaradi tega, ker kadarkoli sem potovala je vedno šla z menoj. S to paleto lahko naredim hiter dnevni izgled ali bolj kompliciran, temen, večerni izgled. Ponuja mi vse kar potrebujem, senčila v paleti pa so ravno prav mehka in pigmentirana, tako da je uporaba res enostavna. Paleto sem prav tako že ocenila na blogu in povezavo do ocene najdete TUKAJ.

IMG_7993

I choose this palette as the best one because whenever I traveled somewhere it always came with me. I can do a quick daily look or a more complicated, dark, nigh time look. It offers me everything I need, the eyeshadows are just soft enough and pigmented so using it is really easy. I also already reviewed this palette on the blog and you can find the review HERE.

      8. ZOEVA – 134 LUXE POWDER FUSION

Osvetljevalec sem prej nanašala z enim drugim čopičem in nikoli nisem bila zadovoljna z izgledom, zato sem se podala v lov za novim čopičem. Najprej sem seveda pogledala na Zoevino stran, saj so mi Zoevini čopiči eni izmed najboljših. Hitro sem našla tega in ga tudi kupila v Douglasu v Avstriji. Čopič je ravno prav širok in dolg da je nanos osvetljevalca vedno perfekten. Uporabim ga vsakič ko se ličim in ne predstavljam si več življenja brez njega. Čopič priporočam vsem, ki uporabljate osvetljevalce.

img_9405

Before I applied the highlighter with a different brush and I was never happy with the way it looked so I started looking for a new one. The first site I looked at was Zoeva of course because Zoeva brushes are one of the best for me. I quickly found this one and also bought it in Douglas in Austria. The brush is just wide and long enough so the highlighter applied always looks perfect. I use it every time I put on make-up and I can’t imagine my life without it. I recommend this brush to everyone that uses highlighters.

      9. ESSENCE – PURE NUDE HIGHLIGHTER

O tem osvetljevalcu ste verjetno slišali že veliko zato ne bom dolgovezila. Osvetljevalec je naraven a kljub temu obraz izredno lepo osvetli. Poleti in jeseni je bil to edini osvetljevalec katerega sem uporabljala. Izdelek je lepo kremast, nič pudrast, na kožo se lepo prenese. Čeprav izgleda na prvi pogled precej temen pa pri nanosu na kožo nimam težav s tem saj se lepo zlije s poltjo. Priporočam ga predvsem za vsakodnevno uporabo saj menim, da z njim ne morete zgrešiti.

img_9408

You probably heard a lot about this highlighter so I won’t be long. The highlighter is natural but it still lights up the face nicely. In the summer and autumn this was the only highlighter I used. The product is nicely creamy, not powdery at all and applies to the skin really well. Although it looks quite dark at first sight I have no problem with that while applying it to the skin because it blends really nicely with my tan. I recommend it especially for a daily use because I think you can’t go wrong with this one.

Ker nerada dajem na ta seznam produkte, ki se več ne dajo kupiti, je seznam letos malce krajši. Kljub temu me je izredno navdušila še Benefit Cheekathon paleta, ki je bila redno v uporabi in pa MAC Sweet Peach duo/paleta iz zimske kolekcije. Kateri produkti so vas navdušili v lanskem letu? Pustite mi komentar spodaj!

The list is a bit shorter this year because I don’t like to put products you can’t buy anymore on it. Nevertheless I was extremely impressed by the Benefit Cheekathon palette that I was using a lot and the MAC Sweet Peach duo/palette from the winter collection. Which products impressed you in the previous year? Leave a comment down below!

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

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).

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.

travel2Collage

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).

IMG_7881

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! 😉

Mango Tango & Sorbet make-up look

IMG_7834

Kot sem omenila že v prejšnji objavi, v kateri sem ocenjevala Makeup Geek senčila, sem se odločila, da ko bom ocenjevala senčila, palete, da bom v naslednji objavi tudi pokazala kako sem senčila tudi uporabila. Tako sem tokrat s senčili Mango Tango in Sorbet naredila ravno pravšnji spomladanski izgled.

As I mentioned in the previous post, in which I reviewed the Makeup Geek eyeshadows, I decided that whenever I’ll review eyeshadows, palettes, I will also show you how I used them in the next post. So this time I used Mango Tango and Sorbet to do this makeup look, just right for spring.

Ker sem potrebovala nekaj bronastega, sem uporabila še eno Makeup Geek senčilo in sicer Grandstand. Senčilo bo tudi kmalu ocenjeno. Torej za oči sem uporabila samo 3 senčila, tako da je ta izgled res enostaven za poustvarit.

Because I needed something bronzy I used another Makeup Geek shadow, namely Grandstand. The eyeshadow will be reviewed soon. Because I only used 3 eyeshadows for the eyes, this look is really easy to recreate.

springmu3Collage

Veko sem najprej pripravila z bazo za senčila in takoj nadaljevala s prehodno barvo Sorbet, katero sem nanesla v očesno gubo. Ker je senčilo res svetlo sem ga blendala navzgor proti obrvi. Ta postopek sem ponovila dvakrat. Nato sem nadaljevala kar z Mango Tango. Najprej sem ga nanesla suhega, čez celo veko a ne nad očesno gubo. Ko sem končala, sem se odločila, da ni dovolj pigmentirano in sem zato senčko nanesla na veko še mokro. To je bilo že boljše. 🙂 Da sem sredino veke malo osvetlila, sem vzela prvo zlato senčilo, ki mi je bilo pri roki in s prstom potapkala po sredini. Preden sem nadaljevala z obrazom sem z micelarno vodico in vato potegnila ob veki navzgor, da sem ustvarila ravno in čisto črto.

I primed my eyelid with an eyeshadow base and continued with the transition shade Sorbet, that I applied in my crease. Because the shade is really light I blended it upwards to the brow. I repeated this step twice. Then I continued with Mango Tango. First I applied it dry all over the lid, but not above the crease. When I finished I decided that it was not pigmented enough and applied the shadow wet. That was better. 🙂 To highlight the center of the lid I applied a gold eyeshadow, that was on hand, and dabbed it with my finger on the center of the lid. Before I continued with the face, I took my micellar water and cleaned by my eyelid upwards to create a straight and clean line.

springmuCollage

Nadaljevala sem z obrazom, tekoči puder, korektor, puder v prahu. Nato sem dokončala oči. Ker nisem želela oranžne senčke pod očmi, sem dala na spodnjo veko Grandstand. V notranjem kotičku očesa in pod obrvjo sem osvetlila z Mary-Lou Manizer osvetljevalcem od The Balma. Osvetljevalec sem prav tako nanesla na obraz (vrh ličk, nos, brada) in za rdečilo uporabila kar Cindy-Lou Manizer. Prav tako nikoli ne grem ven brez mojega najljubšega bronzerja Beached Bronzer od Urban Decay, s katerim sem zasenčila obraz.

I continued with the face, liquid foundation, concealer, loose powder. Then I finished my eyes. Because I didn’t want an orange eyeshadow under my eyes, I used Grandstand on my lower eyelid. I highlighted in the inner corner of the eye and under the eyebrow with the Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter from The Balm. I also applied the highlighter on my face (cheekbone, nose, chin) and used Cindy-Lou Manizer as my blush. I never leave the house without my favorite bronzer from Urban Decay, the Beached Bronzer that I used to contour my face.

springmu2Collage

Ker se mi je zdelo, da nekaj manjka, sem nad trepalnicami naredila tanko črto z rjavo barvico. Uredila sem si obrvi, nanesla maskaro in zaključila z glosom na ustnicah od Khroma Beauty. Upam, da vam je bil ta enostaven izgled všeč. Kakšen izgled imate vi radi za pomlad? Pustite mi komentar.

Because I felt that something was missing I made a thin line above my eyelashes with a brown pencil. I did my brows, applied mascara and finished with a gloss on the lips from Khroma Beauty. I hope you liked this easy make-up look. What look do you like for the spring? Leave a comment.

Clinique: Beyond perfecting foundation + concealer

cliniqueCollage

Moja logika je sledeča: če se že ličim, potem rada prekrijem vse napake. In ker imam zadnje čase grozne težave s kožo, potrebujem nekaj bolj prekrivnega, kot mi je to nudil Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum puder. Tale puder sem videla pri mnogih vlogerkah, ki so ga vse pohvalile in sem se odločila, da ga poskusim.

My logic is as follows: if I’m already putting make-up on, then I want to cover everything. And because I have been having terrible skin problems recently, I need something with more coverage, than my Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation was giving me. I saw this foundation in a lot of beauty vlogs, and because everyone was praising it, I decided to try it out. 

IMG_7296

Puder je v stekleni embalaži z aplikatorjem na gobico, podobno kot so korektorji, le da je tukaj aplikator veliko večji, ter z belim napisom. Meni je embalaža všeč, saj je učinkovita, čeprav imam še vedno najraje embalaže s pumpico. Zanima me kako učinkovita bo ta, ko bom imela še čisto malo produkta notri. A o tem ko pridemo do tega.

The foundation is in a glass container with white lettering and a doe foot applicator, similar like in concealers, just that the applicator here is much bigger. I like the packaging, because it’s effective, although I prefer to have a pump. I do wonder how effective this packaging will be, when there’s almost no product in it. But I’ll worry about that when I’ll need to.

IMG_7298

Imam odtenek je 02 Alabaster, ki je zame malenkost pretemen oziroma pretopel. Izbira odtenkov pri nas, je po mojem mnenju obupna. Tiste, ki imate izredno svetlo kožo boste težko prišle do svojega odtenka. Jaz ga ponavadi pri bradi zmešam z drugim, svetlejšim, pudrom, tako da ni taka razlika med vratom in obrazom. Sama bi potrebovala pol odtenka svetlejši puder z neutralnim podtonom. A tega žal ni, saj svetlejšega od tega pri nas nisem našla, čeprav je na uradni strani veliko več odtenkov na izbiro.

I have the shade 02 Alabaster, which is a bit too dark, warm for me. The shade selection is in my opinion terrible. If you have very light skin, you’ll have a difficult time to match your shade. I usually mix this one with a lighter one at the chin, so there’s not a big difference between the face and neck. I myself would need half a shade lighter foundation with a neutral undertone. But I haven’t found a lighter shade than this one in our stores, although there’s many more shades to pick from on the official website.

clinique2Collage

Levo/Left: Brez ličil. / No make-up.               Desno/Right: Samo puder. / Foundation only.

Tekoči puder nanesem direktno na obraz z aplikatorjem. Ponavadi aplikator namočim 3x za cel obraz. Res je, da je čisto malo produkta dovolj za cel obraz, ampak jaz pač rada pretiravam. 😉 Puder je izredno prekriven, tako da so tudi najhujši izbruhi prekriti. Prekrivnost lahko povečate z dodatnim nanosom produkta. Produkt je precej gost. Na začetku sem ga razmazovala z Beauty Blenderjem a mi izgled ni bil všeč, zato sem poskusila s čopičem in sedaj ne uporabljam več drugega. Prekrivnost s čopičem je prav tako večja, kot z gobico.

I apply the foundation directly to the face with the applicator. I usually dip the applicator 3x in the foundation, for the whole face. It’s true, that a little goes a long way, but I like to exaggerate. 😉 The foundation has a really great (full) coverage, so even the worst outbreaks are covered. The coverage can be increased by additional application of the product. The product is pretty thick. In the beginning I blended the foundation with the Beauty Blender, but I didn’t like the look, so I tried with a brush and now I don’t use anything else. The coverage with the brush is much better.

Puder je opazen na koži. Ni eden tistih, ki se zlijejo v kožo in je, kot da nič nimaš na obrazu a vseeno ne pušča težkega občutka na koži. Jaz ga fiksiram s pudrom v prahu, saj le-ta ni mat. Zdi se mi, da se relativno hitro porablja, ampak spet je to odvisno od tega, koliko ga nanesete. Jaz ga nanesem veliko. Moram opozoriti, da je viden bel odsev, pri slikanju z bliskavico.

The foundation is visible on the skin. It’s not one of those, that blends into the skin and it’s like you have nothing on your face, but it still doesn’t leave a heavy feeling on the skin. I set it with a loose powder, because it’s not fully matte. I do feel that I’m using it up quite fast, but again it depends on how much you apply. I do apply a lot. I have to point out that there is white cast/flash back, when photographing with flash.

Končni izgled. / Finished look.

S pudrom sem zadovoljna, najbolj zaradi prekrivnosti in obstojnosti, saj se ne razmazuje ali bledi. Veliko bolj zadovoljna bi bila, če bi lahko dobila kakšen svetlejši odtenek. Sama sem ga kupila v Mullerju v Avstriji in zadnj odštela okoli 32€. Pri nas v Mullerju boste zanj odštele 38€, v Douglasu (Avstrija) 34€, v Travel Free shopu pa le 27€. Razlike v ceni so ogromne in če le imate možnost, priporočam nakup v Avstriji oziroma v TF shopu.

I am satisfied with the foundation, mostly because of the coverage and the longevity, because it doesn’t smudge or fade. I would be a lot happier though if I could get a lighter shade. I bought it in Muller in Austria and paid around 32€ for it. In Slovenia in Muller you will pay 38€, in Douglas (Austria) 34€, in Travel Free shop only 27€. Price differences are huge and if you have the chance, I recommend buying it in Austria or in the TF shop.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 😉

P.s.: Upam, da so vas moje fotke nasmejale. 😀 / I hope my photos made you laugh. 😀
