Makeup Geek: Barcelona Beach in Latte

Kako leto sem že gledala tuje blogerke, kako so hvalile in veselo uporabljale Makeup Geek senčila. Na internetu sem iskala možnosti kako priti do njih in potem sem en dan dobila e-pošto od Beauty Bay strani in na moje veselje so dobili njihova senčila. Takoj sem oddala prvo naročilo štirih senčil in med njimi sta bili tudi Barcelona Beach in Latte. Senčki sem kupila z namenom, da jih bom uporabljala kot prehodno barvo v gubi veke.

I was watching foreign bloggers for about a year happily using and praising the Makeup Geek eyeshadows. I was looking for ways to get them and then one day I got an e-mail from Beauty Bay and I was happy to see that they got their eyeshadows. I immediately ordered four eyeshadows and among them were Barcelona Beach and Latte. I bought the eyeshadows with the intention to use them as transition colors in my crease.

Barvi sta sicer na prvi pogled izredno podobni, ampak Latte je malo bolj temna in s toplimi podtoni, Barcelona Beach pa ima hladne podtone. Torej v mojih očeh popolnoma različni senčki. 🙂

The colors are really similar at first glance, but Latte is deeper and with warm undertones, Barcelona Beach has cool undertones. So in my eyes totally different eyeshadows. 🙂

Makeup Geek Barcelona Beach senčko opisuje kot srednje peščeno mat barvo in mislim, da je dobro opisana. Latte je opisana kot srednje rjava mat barva. Latte ima po mojem mnenju kar nekaj rdečega pigmenta not, kar daje senčki toploto in globino. Obe senčki sta mi super všeč, uporabljam ju vedno ko si naličim oči, Barcelono Beach, ko imam bolj “hladne” sence na očeh, Latte pa ko uporabim “tople” sence. Senčki občasno tudi pomešam in ju tako uporabim. Barcelona Beach je rahlo bolj mehka in kremasta kot Latte a kljub temu sta obe senčki izredno kvalitetni in preprosti za uporabo. Barcelona Beach ima malo sijaja, čeprav je v osnovi mat barva.

Makeup Geek describes Barcelona Beach as medium sand shade with a matte finish and I think that’s a good description. Latte is described as matte medium brown. Latte has in my opinion some red pigments which gives the shadow warmth and depth. I love both of the eyeshadows and I use them every time I put make-up on my eyes, Barcelona Beach when I have “cool” shadows on my eyes and Latte when I use “warm” eyeshadows. Occasionally I mix them and use them that way. Barcelona Beach is a bit more soft and creamy then Latte but nevertheless both eyeshadows are great quality and easy to use. Barcelona Beach has a bit of shine to it although it’s still a matte color.

Embalaža je minimalistična, kar pomeni da dobite samo senčko v metalni embalaži, ki pride v majhni kartonasti kuverti. Sama s tem nisem imela težav, ker imam Z paleto že zelo dolgo, tako da sem senčke dala tja, ampak imejte v mislih, da boste morale kupiti še neko paleto, kjer boste sence hranile. Prav tako za Makeup Geek ne potrebujete magnetnih nalepk, saj se same “primejo” za paleto. Za senčko sem dala 6,60€ kar se mi za tako kvaliteto ne zdi veliko, saj lahko kupite eno po eno senčko in si sestavite svojo idealno paleto. Senčke in Z paleto lahko kupite na Beauty Bayu. Obsežne swatche si lahko ogledate tukaj. Kmalu bom ocenila in poslikala tudi druge barve. Imate ve kakšne Makeup Geek senčke, katere priporočate ali si jih želite? Pustite mi komentar spodaj.

The packaging is minimalistic which means it comes in a metal pan and the pan in a small cardboard envelope. I didn’t have any problems with that because I own a Z palette already so I put the eyeshadows in there, but have in mind that you will have to buy some kind of palette to store them in. You don’t need magnet stickers for the Makeup Geek eyeshadows because the pans “stick” to the palette on their own. I paid 6,60€ for one which is OK for a shadow in this quality and you can buy one by one and assemble your perfect palette. You can buy the eyeshadows and the Z palette on Beauty Bay. For extensive swatches click here. Soon I will review and photograph the other colors I own. Do you own any Makeup Geek eyeshadows and which ones do you recommend or wish to have?

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 🙂

Novi Zoeva produkti

Zoeva bo čez par dni, natančneje 11. januarja, izdala The Spectrum kolekcijo, ki bo vsebovala tri palete s štirimi rdečili in tri palete s petnajstimi senčili. Palete so razdeljene glede na barvne odtenke in sicer na toplo, hladno in nevtralno paleto senčil. Palete bodo vsebovale senčila z različnimi finiši in v vsaki paleti bo dovolj velik nabor barv za različne izglede. Cena palete s senčili bo 35€.

Zoeva is in a few days, more exact on January 11th, launching The Spectrum Collection which is going to include three palettes with four blushes and three palettes with fifteen eyeshadows. The palettes are divided according to color undertones exactly to warm, cold and nude eyeshadow palettes. The palettes will contain eyeshadows with different finishes and each palette will have a large set of colors for different looks. The price is going to be 35€. Zoeva-The-Spectrum-Collection-800x601Palete z rdečili so razdeljene na rozasto, koralno in nevtralno paleto. Paleta bo vsebovala mat in satenast finiš, cena bo pa 18€.

The blush palettes are divided to a pink, coral and nude palette. The palette will include matte and satin finishes, the price is going to be 18€. G_15.12.02_Spectrum_komprimiertJaz imam že par izdelkov izbranih. Kaj pa vi? 🙂

I already have a few picked out. How about you? 🙂

Isti dan bo Zoeva izdala deset novih čopičev, med njimi tudi čopiče takih oblik, ki jih pri drugih proizvajalcih nisem videla. Ali bodo ti čopiči tudi učinkoviti pa bomo še videli. Cene čopičev se bodo gibale od 29€ do 8,50€.

On the same day Zoeva is coming out with ten new brushes, some of which are shaped in ways I haven’t seen with other manufacturers. The effectiveness of the brushes still remains to bee seen. The prices are ranging from 29€ to 8,50€. ZOEVA_10NewBrushes_komprimiert_mitLogo

Zoeva En Taupe palette

image2Glede na to, da se že tako ali tako navdušujem nad Zoeva čopiči, sem se začela navduševati tudi nad ličili omenjene znamke. In čeprav sem do zdaj vedno iskala izgovore, zakaj določenega  izdelka ne  potrebujem, sem se v to paletko enostavno zaljubila na prvi pogled in decembra sem jo tudi končno dobila. Sama kupujem Zoeva izdelke v Douglasovi spletni trgovini in dam, da dostavijo v  njihovo trgovino, ki se nahaja v nakupovalnem središču v Seiersbergu (Avstrija), kjer  potem tudi  plačam naročeno.  Zame je ta metoda najbolj preprosta in praktična. Seveda pa imate možnost njihove izdelke  naročiti na Zoevini uradni spletni strani. Paleta je stala 17€.

Given the fact that I really like the Zoeva brushes I also started getting enthused about the make-up as well. Until now I have always looked for excuses, why I don’t need a certain product, but I fell in love with this product and got it in December. I buy the Zoeva products in the Douglas online store and I have them deliver in their store which is in the shopping center Seiersberg (Austria), where I pay for it as well. This method is simple and practical for me. Of course you also have the option to buy the products from the Zoeva official website. The palette cost 17€.

Tale paleta se  mi je zdela  primerna za  vsak dan, torej  za  dnevni make-up lahko pa pride v poštev tudi za večernega. Opremljena s to paleto sem šla tudi k sestri čez praznike in izkazala se je kot povsem dovolj, tako za dnevni, nežni, make-up izgled, kot tudi za intenzivnejšega večernega.

I find this palette suitable for everyday, for a daily make-up look, as well as for a night time look. Equipped with this palette I went to my sister over the holidays and it probed itself to be enough, as well for a daily, soft, make-up look, as well as for an intense night look.

Paleta sama je iz kartona, pakirana je v “rokavu”, ki je identičen zunanjosti palete. V notranjosti je plastična folija, ki je namenjena zaščiti senčil. Paleta se dobro zapira in je trdna ter trpežna, tako da me ni strah, da bi se karkoli poškodovalo. Sumljivi so mi edino robovi, ki bi se znali čez čas malo poškodovati a za tako ugodno ceno jim to zlahka odpustim in me niti najmanj ne bi motilo.

The palette itself is made out of cardboard, packaged in a “sleeve”, that is identical to the exterior of the palette. There is a plastic foil that comes in the palette to protect the eyeshadows. The palette closes well and in sturdy and durable, so I’m not afraid that anything would damage. Only the edges of the palette could damage in the future, but for a price this low I easily forgive them this.

Paleta ima 10 senčil in že samo ime pove, da so barve bolj sivkasto rjave s hladnimi podtoni. 4 barve so mat, 1 je mat z bleščicami, 2 sta duochrome in 3 so satenaste. Senčila so ustrezno mehka, solidno pigmentirana, lahko jih uporabljamo suhe ali mokre. Jaz včasih uporabim duochrome barvi mokri, ker je potem sam učinek večji.

The palette has 10 eyeshadows and the name itself says that the colors are grey-brown with cool undertones – taupey. 4 colors are matte, 1 is matte with shimmer, 2 are duochrome and 3 are satin. The eyeshadows are soft, nicely pigmented and we can use them dry or wet. I occasionally use the duochrome shadows wet so the effect is greater.

Barve se lepo in prijetno nanašajo in preprosto se razmazujejo oziroma “blendajo”. Več slik swatchev lahko pogledate tukaj. 🙂

The eyeshadows apply nicely and they blend easily. For more pictures and swatches click here. 🙂

To je moja prva Zoeva paletka in sem popolnoma prepričana, da tudi ne zadnja. Z veseljem namreč že pričakujem novo Zoeva Spectrum kolekcijo in vem, da bo najmanj ena paletka šla z menoj.

This is my first Zoeva palette and I’m absolutely convinced it’s not the last. I’m already expecting the new Zoeva Spectrum collection and I now that at least one palette will come home with me.
