Produkti, ki mi niso všeč #2

Sicer je takih produktov bolj malo, saj se vedno potrudim, da izdelke preučim pred nakupom in da pogledam ocene drugih uporabnikov a včasih enostavno ni časa za to in kupim kaj na blef. 🙂 Zato sem spet našla 3 produkte, ki mi niso odgovarjali. To ne pomeni, da produkti niso dobri, to pomeni, da meni osebno niso všeč. Pa poglejmo kaj se je tokrat znašlo na tem seznamu.

There are not a lot of products I don’t like because I always do my best to research the product before buying it and to check reviews from other users, but sometimes there just isn’t any time for that and I buy something on a whim. 🙂 That’s why I found 3 products that didn’t work for me. This doesn’t mean that they aren’t good it just means that I personally didn’t like them. So let’s see what made the list this time.

THE BODY SHOP – VITAMIN E GENTLE FACIAL WASH

Nujno sem potrebovala nekaj za umivanje obraza in odstranjevanje ličil in ker sem načeloma navdušena nad njihovimi izdelki sem se odločila poskusiti s tem. Ker je pisalo, da je primeren tudi za umivanje ličil in da je nežen do kože ter primeren za vse tipe kože, sem mislila da z njim ne morem zgrešit. Prva napaka je bila že ta, da produkta nisem povonjala pred nakupom. Ne vem če je moj bil pokvarjen ali ne, ampak smrdel je dobesedno po plastelinu in vonj je bil zelo moteč. Ličila je sicer resda dobro umil, ampak kožo mi je po uporabi izredno zategovalo, tako da težko rečem, da je nežen do kože, saj moja mešana koža drugače ni občutljiva. Gela več ne bom nikoli kupila in ga tako tudi seveda ne priporočam.

I needed something for washing my face and removing make-up and because I’m generally impressed with their products I decided to try it out. Because it stated that it’s suitable for washing off make-up and that it’s gentle to the skin I didn’t think I could go wrong with it. The first mistake was that I didn’t smell the product before buying it. I don’t know if mine was bad or not but it smelled like play-doh and the scent was really disturbing. I did however wash off the make-up well but my skin was feeling very tight after using it so I can’t say that it’s gentle to the skin because my combination skin isn’t sensitive otherwise. I won’t buy the gel anymore and of course I don’t recommend it either.

ESSENCE – STAY ALL DAY 16 HOUR LONG-LASTING CONCEALER

Vedno rada poskusim nove korektorje, še posebej v nižjem cenovnem razredu, tako sem ob obisku Mullerja na hitro pograbila tega. Moja napaka je bila ta, da nisem prebrala dobro embalaže. Edino kar sem videla je, da bi naj bil dolgo obstojen. Sama imam rada korektorje, ki zelo dobro prekrivajo in čeprav bi tudi ta naj to naredil pa tega ne opravi dovolj dobro. Korektor na meni dobesedno izgine. Poskusila sem ga razmazati tudi s prsti in učinek ni bil nič kaj boljši. O tem ali je dolgoobstojen ne morem komentrirati, saj sem čez ta korektor potem nanesla drugega. Čeprav je korektor bil cenovno ugoden ga žal ne priporočam, saj je v mojem primeru bilo enako z ali brez tega korektorja.

I always like to try new concealers especially in the lower price range so I snatched this one while visiting Muller. My mistake was that I didn’t read the label very well. The only thing I saw was that it’s supposed to be long-lasting. I love concealers that cover really well and although this one is supposed to do the same it doesn’t do the job good enough. The concealer literally disappears on me. I tried blending it with my fingers but the effect wasn’t any better. I can’t really comment on whether it’s long-lasting or not because I had to use another concealer over this one. Although the concealer was affordable I can’t recommend it because in my case it would be the same with or without it.

SOAP & GLORY – SCRUB YOUR NOSE IN IT

Ta izdelek se ni slučajno znašel v moji košarici, saj sem se pred nakupom posvetila raziskavi. Ocene uporabnikov so bile v glavnem dobre in ob obisku Douglas-a v Avstriji sem ga tudi kupila. Piling je svetlo modre barve, goste konsistence in diši rahlo po mentolu. Sama imam rada malo bolj grobe pilinge kar ta piling ni. Piling zrnc je sicer veliko a so te tako drobne da moram s prsti močno pritisniti ob kožo, da sploh čutim učinek pilinga. Sam produkt daje na koži hladen občutek. Piling sem sicer dolgo časa uporabljala in mu dala veliko priložnosti, da se izkaže, a nikoli nisem bila zadovoljna z učinkom. Koža je sicer bila čista po uporabi a to opravi tudi moj gel za umivanje obraza. Če imate radi nežni pilingi potem bi mogoče bil dober za vas. Meni ni bil všeč in ga več ne bom kupila.

This product didn’t accidentally get in my cart because I did my research before buying it. The user reviews were mostly good and while visiting the Douglas store in Austria I bought it. The exfoliator is a light blue color with thick consistency and smells slightly of mint. I myself like more coarse exfoliators which this one isn’t. There are a lot of exfoliating granules but they are so small I really have to press hard against my skin to even feel any effect of the exfoliator. The product itself gives a cooling feeling on the skin. I used the exfoliator for a long time and I gave it plenty of opportunities to prove itself but I’ve never been satisfied with the effect. The skin was clean after using it but my face cleansing gel does the same. If you like gentle exfoliators then it might be good for you. I didn’t like it and I won’t buy it again.

To so bili torej trije izdelki, ki so me razočarali oziroma kateri mi niso bili dovolj všeč, da bi jih priporočala drugim ali jih ponovno kupila. Če vas zanima kateri trije so se prejšnjič znašli na tem seznamu ga lahko najdete TUKAJ.

So these were the three products that disappointed me or I didn’t like them enough to recommend them to others or even re-buy them. If you would like to know which three products have previously disappointed me you can find the list HERE.

ABH: Pro Series Powder Contour Banana in Vanilla

ABHCollage

Anastasia Beverly Hills mi je bila vedno zanimiva in vsakič, ko sem gledala punce kako so uporabljale njene palete za konturiranje, sem si želela, da bi si jo tudi jaz lahko kupila. Čez čas me je minil nakup palete, še vedno pa sem si želela dober banana puder v kamnu ali prahu za fiksiranje korektorja. Na mojo srečo je, po neuspešnem iskanju, Beauty Bay dobil posamezne pudre v kamnu za ponovno polnitev palet.

I was always interested in Anastasia Beverly Hills and every time I watched girls use her contour palette I always wished I could buy it as well. After a while I lost interest in the palette but I still wanted a good banana powder, compact or loose, for setting my concealer. Luckily for me after an unsuccessful search, Beauty Bay got the individual refill powders for the palettes.

IMG_8130

Odločila sem se kupiti kar dve barvi, saj me je skrbelo, da bi bila Banana preveč rumena zame, ki imam precej bolj nevtralno hladen podton. Tako sem poleg Banane kupila še Vanilijo. Ker so to posamezni pudri, ki so za ponovno polnitev palete, nimajo svoje embalaže, ampak so pakirani le v kartonasti škatlici in potrebujete paleto v katero jih boste shranili. Sama ju hranim v Z paleti, ki je super priročna.

I decided to buy two shades because I was worried that Banana would be too yellow for me because I have a more neutral cool undertone. So in addition to Banana I bought Vanilla as well. Because these are individual refill powders they come just in a pan packaged in a cardboard box and you need a palette to store them in. I store them in a Z palette which is super convenient.

Levo/Left: Vanilla, Desno/Right: Banana

Prvi šok, ki sem ga doživela, je bila velikost samih pudrov. Pri naročanju namreč nisem bila pozorna na težo produkta, tako da sem pričakovala standardnih 5-6g. Dobila sem seveda veliko manj in sicer 3g. Še dobro, da pudra uporabljam samo pod očmi, saj ju tako ne porabim veliko.

The first shock that I experienced was the size of the powders. While ordering them I wasn’t paying attention to the weight of the product so I expected a standard 5-6g. I of course got a lot less, namely 3g. It’s good that I only use the powder under my eyes so I don’t use a lot.

Levo/Left: Samo puder in korektor. / Just foundation and concealer.                           Desno/Right: Pod levim očesom Banana, pod desnim očesom Vanilla. / Under the left eye Banana, under the right eye Vanilla.

Banana je svetlo rumen mat puder, Vanilla pa svetlo krem, delno mat. Oba pudra sta ravno prav mehka, da se lepo oprimeta ščetin na čopiču. Pudra sta prav tako precej pigmentirana, Banana bolj kot Vanilla, tako da dodatno prekrijeta moje temne podočnjake. Ker se mi je Banana zdel prerumen sem ju začela mešati in tako dobila perfektni odtenek. Pudra dobro fiksirata moj korektor in tudi predel pod očmi lepo osvetlita.

Banana is a pale matte yellow, Vanilla is a pale demi matte cream. Both of the powders are soft enough so they stick to the brush bristles. The powders are quite pigmented as well, Banana more than Vanilla so they additionally cover my dark under eye circles. Because I thought that Banana was too yellow I started mixing them together and that’s how I got the perfect shade. The powders set my concealer really well and also brighten the under eye area.

Končni izgled, pomešana pudra / Finished look, mixed powders.

Za 3g produkta sem na Beauty Bayu odštela 16,50€ kar se mi zdi veliko za sicer dober puder. Velik plus je, da je izbor odtenkov širok, tako da lahko vsaka najde nekaj zase in si načeloma kupi le enega, namesto cele palete. Jaz ju bom z veseljem porabila, nisem pa prepričana, da ju bom spet kupila. Bolj me mika Laura Mercier Brightening powder za predel pod očmi. Kaj vi uporabljate za fiksiranje korektorja? Priporočate kaj?

I paid 16,50€ on Beauty Bay for 3g of product and I find that to be too much for a powder that is good. The big plus is that there is a wide selection of shades so everyone can find something for themselves and generally buy only one instead of the whole palette. I will happily use them but I’m not sure I’ll buy them again. I’m more temped by the Laura Mercier Brightening powder for the under eye area. What do you use for setting you concealer? Do you recommend anything?

H&M: Cover Up Concealer

HM2 Collage

Vedno sem na preži, za novim korektorjem, saj imam temne podočnjake. Par blogerk je tale korektor opisalo kot dober, učinkovit, in morala sem ga poskusiti. H&M prodaja kozmetiko v Sloveniji le v Ljubljani v City Parku in tam sem ga tudi kupila.

I’m always on the lookout for a new concealer, because I have dark under eye circles. A few bloggers reviewed this concealer as good, effective, and I had to try it. H&M sells beauty products in Slovenia only in Ljubljana in City Park and that’s where I bought it.

Korektor je v tipični embalaži z gobico za aplikator. Ta embalaža mi je še najbolj všeč za korektorje. Vonja nima, barva je Ivory, ki je odtenek svetlejša od moje polti, saj korektor uporabljam za osvetlitev obraza in predela pod očmi.

The concealer is in a typical packaging with a doe foot applicator. I prefer this kind of packaging for concealers. It has no scent, the color is Ivory, which is a shade lighter than my complexion, because I use the concealer to highlight the face and my under eye area.

IMG_6650

Korektor je precej kremast in se zato tudi lepo razmaže. Jaz ga nanesem z aplikatorjem direktno na obraz, nato pa ga z Beauty Blenderjem razmažem. Korektor se dobro obnese na obrazu, saj nimam globokih gub. Druga zgodba pa je pod očmi, saj se nabere v gubice in po dobri uri mi več ni všeč kako izgleda. Prekrije precej dobro, ampak mojih izredno temnih podočnjakov skoraj noben korektor ne prekrije popolnoma, tako da to ni merilo. Jaz ga vedno fiksiram s pudrom v prahu in/ali v kamnu.

The concealer is pretty creamy and because of that it blends easily. I apply it with the applicator directly to the face, then I use a Beauty Blender to blend it out. The concealer works well on the face, because I don’t have deep wrinkles. Under the eyes is a different story, because it creases into the fine lines and after an hour I no longer like the look of it. It covers pretty good, but I have very dark under eye circles that rarely any concealer covers completely, so that’s not a criterion. I always set it with a loose and/or pressed powder.

Ker je kremast, mogoče ne bo najboljši za punce z mastno kožo, prav tako ne za tiste, ki imate globoke izrazne gube ali gubice pod očmi, saj se nabira vanje. Korektor je torej dober, ampak ni pa odličen, kot moj MAC ProLongwear concealer. Zanj boste odšteli 5,99€. Priporočam ga, če niste zahtevne uporabnice. 😉

Since it’s creamy it may not be the best for women with oily skin or women with deep expression lines or fine lines under the eyes, because it does crease. The concealer is therefore good, but not great, as my MAC ProLongwear concealer. You will pay 5,99€ for it. I do recommend it, if you’re not a demanding user. 😉

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

P.s.: Trenutno ga ne najdem na spletni strani, tako da je mogoče šel iz prodaje ali ni na zalogi.

P.s.: I can’t currently find it on the website, so it’s possible that it’s discontinued or out of stock.

Moj vsakodnevni make-up

Od samega začetka sem imela plan, da se bom naličila, poslikala in objavila kaj sem uporabila za določen izgled. Največ težav so mi delale fotografije, saj nikoli nisem uspela dobro poslikati oči, da bi se barve lepo videle. Tokrat sem vsaj delno uspela in zato sem se tudi odločila, da bom ta vsakodnevni “look” tudi objavila. Obljubim, da se bom v bodoče potrudila, da bodo slike še boljše. 😉 Pa začnimo.

From the very beginning I had a plan, to put on make-up, take a picture and post what I used to achieve that look. The biggest problem were the photographs, because I could never photograph the eyes good enough, to show all the colors. This time I was at least partially successful so I decided to post this everyday make-up look. I promise I will try to make even better pictures in the future. 🙂 Let’s start.

IMG_6881

Na obraz sem najprej nanesla H&M bazo za mat kožo, ki sem jo prvič poskusila, tako da ocena še sledi. Bazo sem nanesla na čelo, okoli nosu in na brado oziroma na T-predel, saj se mi tam tudi najhitreje zmasti. Potem sem nanesla tekoči puder in sicer Bourjois Healthy Mix v odtenku Vanilla 52. Sledil je korektor, H&M concealer v odtenku Ivory, ki sem ga nanesla pod očmi, na brado, okoli nosu in malenkost na sredino čela. Korektor sem fiksirala z Maybelline Dream Matte pudrom v kamnu, katerega mi je skoraj že zmanjkalo. 🙂 Preostanek obraza sem fiksirala z Maybelline Shine Free Loose pudrom, ki se je tudi znašel na lestvici najljubših izdelkov v letu 2015 (seznam najdete tukaj).

First I applied the H&M mattifying primer on my face and this is the first time I used it so the review is yet to come. I applied the primer on my forehead, around my nose and on my chin, on the T-zone, because I get greasy the fastest there. Then I applied my foundation, the Bourjois Healthy Mix in the shade Vanilla 52. Next was the H&M concealer in the shade Ivory, which I applied under my eyes, on my chin, around my nose and a bit on the center of my forehead. I set the concealer with the Maybelline Dream Matte powder, that I’m almost out of. 🙂 I set the rest of my face with the Maybelline Shine Free Loose powder, that’s also in my top favorite products in 2015 (you can find the list here).

IMG_6927

Potem sem začela z očmi. Najprej sem nanesla bazo, Essence I heart stage eyeshadow base, katero sem razmazala po celi veki. Za tale nežni izgled sem uporabila Zoevino Warm Spectrum paleto, ocena katere še sledi. Z rdečimi krogi so označena senčila, katera sem uporabila, številke pa označujejo vrstni red, kako sem jih nanašala.

Then I started with my eyes. First I applied the base, Essence I heart stage eyeshadow base, which I smudged all over the lid. I used the Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette for this soft look, review of which is yet to come. The red circles mark the eyeshadows that I used, the numbers indicate the order of how I applied them.

paleta2

Čez bazo sem nanesla prvo senčilo po celi veki, da sem veko pripravila na nanos barvnih senčil. Najprej sem kot prehodno barvo uporabila drugo senčilo, ki sem ga nanesla nad in v gubo veke. Barvo sem nanesla parkrat, da sem jo lepo razmazala vse od zunanjega do notranjega kotička očesa. Potem sem vzela oranžno senčilo, tretje po vrsti, in ga nanesla samo v gubo veke. To sem ponavljala, dokler mi intenzivnost in izgled nista bila všeč. Nato je sledilo četrto senčilo, ki sem ga nanesla čez veko, od trepalnic do pregiba. Ker se mi ni zdelo dovolj pigmentirano, sem se odločila čopič navlažiti in tako nanesti senčilo na veko. Na koncu sem vzela še enkrat širši čopič s katerim sem nanesla prehodno barvo in brez senčila šla čez gubo veke in višje, da sem barve med seboj lepo povezala. Na koncu sem pod obrvmi nanesla še svetlo mat, peto, senčilo. V notranjih kotičkih očes sem nanesla še svetlo senčilo s sijajem. Na spodnji veki sem takoj pod trepalnicami nanesla čokoladno rjavo, sedmo, senčilo in ga skupaj z osmim senčilom razmazala do želene intenzitete. Nato je sledila maskara, uredila sem obrvi in oči so bile končane.

I applied the first eyeshadow over the base, over the whole lid, and this way I prepared my eyelid for the application of colorful eyeshadows. I applied the second eyeshadow as the transition color, above the crease and in the crease. I applied the color a few times, until it was evenly blended from the outer to the inner corner of the eye. Then I took the orange eyeshadow, third in a row, and applied it only to my crease. I repeated this step until I was happy with the intensity and the appearance. The fourth eyeshadow was the next step, which I applied on my lid, from the lash line to the crease. Since it did not seem pigmented enough I decided to wet my brush and apply the eyeshadow that way. Finally I took my blending brush that was used to apply my transition shade and I blended the colors in the crease and higher again, without any additional eyeshadow. In the end I applied the light matte, fifth, eyeshadow, under my eyebrows. In the inner corners of my eyes I decided to apply the light eyeshadow with the shimmer. On my lower lid, just below the eyelashes, I applied the chocolate brown, seventh, eyeshadow and smudged it with the eight eyeshadow to the desired intensity. I applied mascara, did my eyebrows and the eyes were finished.

IMG_6923

Na koncu sem se spet vrnila na obraz, kamor sem nanesla bronzer, Too Faced Sun Bunny bronzer, s katerim sem obraz rahlo konturirala. Za rdečilo sem uporabila Spectrum Coral paleto od Zoeve, kjer sem uporabila najsvetlejšo barvo. Za konec pa sem še nanesla osvetljevalec in sicer The Balm Cindy-Lou Manizer, katerega sem nanesla na vrh ličnic. Na ustnice sem nanesla Bobbi Brown lip gloss, Pink beige 21, in to je bilo to.

In the end I returned to my face again, where I applied some bronzer, Too Faced Sun Bunny bronzer, that I used to slightly contour my face. For the blush I used the Spectrum Coral palette from Zoeva, where I used the lightest color. Finally I applied the highlighter, The Balm Cindy-Lou Manizer, which I applied on the top of my cheeks. I used Bobby Brown lip gloss, Pink beige 21, and that was it.

Če nimate Zoeva Warm Spectrum palete potem ne skrbite, saj so katera koli senčila v podobnih barvah enako dobra. Uporabite izdelke, ki jih imate, in verjamem da vam bo uspelo ustvariti lep, vsakodnevni izgled. Če vam je ta objava všeč in si želite še več takšnih mi pustite komentar spodaj ali objavo všečkajte.

If you don’t have the Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette, don’t worry, any other eyeshadows in similar colors will be good as well. Use the products that you have and I believe that you will be able to create a nice, everyday, look.
