Adventni koledarji

Adventne koledarje poznamo že od malega, ko smo jih dobivali decembra in vsak dan veselo odpirali ter jedli čokoladice in bonbončke, ki so se skrivali notri. Adventni koledarji so se od takrat razvili v nekaj več, nekaj česar se ne veselijo le otroci, ampak tudi odrasli. Tako lahko kupimo adventne koledarje, ki vsebujejo tudi alkohol, cigare, igrače, lake za nohte in seveda tudi kozmetiko. Predvsem ta zadnji me je najbolj razveselil.

We’ve known about advent calendars from an early age, when we used to get them in December and happily opened them every day to find and eat the chocolates and candy that were hiding inside. Advent calendars have since evolved into something more, something that not only children are happy about but adults as well. We can now buy advent calendars that contain alcohol, cigars, toys, nail polish and cosmetics of course. The last of those is the one that bring me the most happiness.

Adventni koledar s kozmetiko, naj bo negovalna ali dekorativna, bo razveselil marsikatero punco, ženo, prijateljico, mamo oziroma vse, ki imamo rade kozmetiko. Sama se nekako mogoče celo bolj nagibam k negovalni kozmetiki kot dekorativni, saj zelo rada preizkušam nove kremice, losijone,… Jaz vam bom tukaj ponudila par opcij, vendar pa se v Sloveniji zaenkrat še kar težko dobi kakšen dober adventni koledar, tako da če se boste odločile za kakšnega predlagam, da malo pobrskate po spletu. 😉

An advent calendar with cosmetics, care cosmetics or make-up, will bring joy to almost any girlfriend, wife, friend, mom or anyone that likes cosmetics. I myself am thinking more of care cosmetics than make-up, because I love to test out new cremes, lotions,… Here I will offer you a few options but in Slovenia it’s still quite difficult to get a good advent calendar so if you choose to get one I recommend looking online. 😉

  1. LUSH 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 52,95GBP

Naj začnem kar z Lush adventnim koledarjem, saj kot veste, sem obsedena z Lushem. Čeprav mislim, da se ga v Sloveniji ne bo dalo kupiti pa angleška Lusheva stran pošilja tudi k nam, tako da si ga lahko vseeno naročite.

Let me start with the Lush advent calendar because as you know I’m crazy about Lush. Although I think you can’t get it in Slovenia you can still order it on the English site and get it delivered to Slovenia.

2. THE BODY SHOP

Spet eno podjetje, ki se ne da kupiti pri nas, vendar pa imate The Body Shop v sosednjih državah, tako da če boste kaj potovali naokoli lahko obiščete kakšno trgovino. Letos nudijo 3 različne koledarje, za 95€, 130€ ali 160€.

This is again a company that isn’t available in Slovenia but you can buy it in the neighboring countries so if you’ll travel around you can visit a store there. This year they’re offering 3 different calendars, for 95€, 130€ or 160€.

     3. W7 COSMETICS 34,99€

c700x420

Seveda sem poiskala tudi koledarje, ki se dajo kupiti/naročiti v Sloveniji in W7 je eden izmed takih. Naročite ga lahko na Ličila.si strani. Notri boste našli šminke, lake za nohte, senčila in še več dobrot.

Of course I looked for calendars that you can buy/order in Slovenia and W7 is one of those. You can order it on the Ličila.si site. Inside you will find lipsticks, nail polishes, eyeshadows and many more goodies.

     4. FEELUNIQUE 30GBP

Ker tudi sama kupujem na tej spletni strani in ker pri njih lahko kupite ogromno različnih kozmetičnih produktov, me izmed vseh še najbolj tale mika, pa tudi cena se mi zdi primerna. Na voljo od 3. novembra na njihovi spletni strani.

Because I myself buy from this website and because you can buy a lot of different cosmetic products from them I’m mostly tempted to buy this one and the price is good as well. It will be available from November 3rd on their website.

     5. MAKEUP REVOLUTION (ok. 30€)

gallery-1475507727-beauty-advent-calendar-2016-makeup-revolution

Čeprav datuma prihoda adventnega koledarja in točne cene še nisem uspela dobiti, pa so mi potrdili, da ga bodo na spletni strani Makeuprevoluton.si sigurno dobili.

Although I couldn’t get an arrival date or the price for this advent calendar they did confirm that they will surely have it on their website Makeuprevolution.si.

Kot sem vam omenila je teh adventnih koledarjev res ogromno in verjamem, da boste tudi pri nas dobili kakšnega, ki vam bo všeč. Jaz si bom skoraj zagotovo kupila kakšnega in v tem primeru ga bom tudi na blogu predstavila in pokazala s čim so me presenetili.

As I mentioned there are a lot of advent calendars and I believe that you will find one for yourself. I will probably get one for myself and in that case I will also review it here and show you what they surprised me with.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Urban Decay: VICE Gubby & Liar lipstick

IMG_8465

Odkar sem kupila prvo šminko, sem čakala dan, da jo bom ocenila. In ta dan je končno prišel. Prva šminka, ki sem jo naročila je bila Gubby, ki me je zelo pozitivno presenetila, nato pa je sledila še šminka v odtenku Liar, ki me je prav tako navdušila.

Since I bought the first lipstick I was waiting for the day to review it. And that day has finally come. The first lipstick I ordered was Gubby which surprised me positively, followed by the lipstick Liar which also impressed me.

Urban Decay je par mescev nazaj reformuliral svoje šminke in potem spektakularno lansiral 100 šmink s šestimi različnimi finiši, med katerimi so kremni, mat, kovinski in drugi. Prav tako so spremenili embalažo, ki je meni res čudovita. Embalaža je sivo-modra z zlatim dnom, vtisnjenim imenom ob strani in logom na vrhu. Na dnu je nalepka z imenom odtenka na nalepki, ki je približek barve šminke. Odpira se enostavno in dobro tesni. Sama šminka je pakirana še v kartonasto škatlico. Na sami šminki je tudi vtisnjen logo UD.

Urban Decay reformulated their lipsticks a few months ago and then spectacularly launched 100 lipsticks with six different finishes, amongst which are cream, matte, metalized and others. They also changed the packaging which I find gorgeous. The packaging is gunmetal with a gold bottom with the name engraved on the side and the logo on the top. There’s a sticker on the bottom with the shade name that is similar to the lipstick color. It opens easily and closes tightly. The lipstick itself is packaged in a cardboard box. There’s also an embossed UD logo on the lipstick.

Naj začnem s prvo šminko, ki sem jo kupila, torej Gubby. Gubby je opisana kot (glazirana) svetlo rožnata šminka s kovinskim finišem. To lahko tudi sama potrdim. Ker je svetle barve s kovinskim finišem je veliko manj prekrivna, manj pigmentirana, in to mi je všeč. Šminko sem kupila, da jo bom nosila samostojno in za nanos čez kakšne druge mat, kremaste šminke. Največkrat pa sem jo vseeno nosila samostojno. Šminka je izredno udobna, ustnic mi ne izsuši, obdrži se pa kakšno uro, dve na ustnicah, v primeru da ne jeste, prav tako pa se ne razliva v gubice.

Let me start with the first lipstick that I bought, namely Gubby. Gubby is described as a (frosted) light pink lipstick with a metalized finish. I can confirm that. Because it’s a light color with a metalized finish has less coverage, less pigment, and I like that. I bought the lipstick to wear on its own or to apply it over other matte, creamy lipsticks. Most of the time I wore it by itself. The lipstick is very comfortable, it doesn’t dry out my lips and it stays on the lips for about an hour or two in case you don’t eat, nor does it bleed into fine lines.

Druga, katero sem naročila, je bila Liar, ki je opisana kot rožnata “nude” barva s kremnim finišem. Ta je veliko bolj kremasta, pigmentirana in posledično tudi dalj časa obstojna, če ne jeste, vendar pa ne več kot tri ure.  Ena plast popolnoma prekrije moje ustnice, za razliko od Gubby. Ustnic mi ne izsuši in zelo udobna je na ustnicah, ne razliva se v gubice, ponavadi pa tako ali tako uporabim Essence Longlasting barvico za ustnice v odtenku 05 Lovely Frappuccino in tako je šminka še bolj obstojna.  Šminko uporabljam predvsem, ko imam bolj dramatično namazane oči.

The second one I ordered was Liar which is described as a pink nude with a creamy finish. This one is a lot creamier, pigmented and consequently lasts longer if you don’t eat, but not more than three hours. Unlike Gubby, one layer is enough to cover my lips completely. It does not dry out my lips and it’s very comfortable, it doesn’t bleed into fine lines but I usually use Essence Longlasting lipliner in the shade 05 Lovely Frappuccino anyway which makes it last even longer. I use the lipstick mainly when I have a more dramatic eye look.

Šminki od Urban Decay-a sta mi izredno všeč in že imam nagledane še nekatere druge odtenke (Weirdo, Checkmatte, Seismic, Violate, Anarchy, itd.). Seveda, ko kupim naslednji dve, spet sledi ocena. Šminki sem naročila na Feelunique in za eno plačala 19,20€ za 3,4g (M.A.C. šminka ima 3g), kar pa se mi zdi za zelo dobro kvaliteto še upravičeno.

I really like the Urban Decay lipsticks and I already have a few more on my wishlist (Weirdo, Checkmatte, Seismic, Violate, Anarchy, etc.). Of course when I buy the next two a review will follow. I ordered the lipsticks on Feelunique and paid 19,20€ for one for 3,4g (M.A.C. lipstick has 3g) which seems reasonable for the great quality.

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.

UDCollage

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€.
