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).

TooFacedCollage

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: Mango Tango in Sorbet

IMG_7817

Ker sem dejansko v zaostanku z ocenjevanjem Makeup Geek senčil, sem se odločila zavihati rokave in oceniti novi senčili. Tokrat sem se tudi odločila, da ko bom ocenjevala senčila, bom v naslednji objavi tudi pokazala, kako sem ta ista senčila uporabila. Tako da v petek pričakujte še makeup izgled s temi senčili.

Because I’m actually behind on reviewing the Makeup Geek eyeshadows I decided to roll up my sleeves and review two new eyeshadows. I also decided to show you how I use those eyeshadows in a post following this one. So on Friday you can expect a make-up look using these shades.

Tokrat sta na vrsti senčili, ki sta bolj živih barv, ravno pravi za pomlad in poletje. Čeprav me je takšnih barv včasih malo strah, pa jih vseeno rada uporabljam predvsem spomladi in poleti.

The eyeshadows that I’m reviewing today are more vivid and are just right for spring and summer. Although I’m a bit scared of these colors, I still like to use them, especially in the spring and summer.

Makeup Geek trdi, da je Mango Tango rožnato senčilo z dodatkom oranžne oziroma breskve ter z zlatimi bleščicami. To lahko tudi sama potrdim. Res je lepa mešanica obeh barv in odlično izgleda čez celo veko. Čeprav senčilo vsebuje zlate bleščice pa so te tako redke, da pri nanosu niso vidne, zato bi jaz prej rekla, da je senčilo bolj ali manj mat. Senčilo je malenkost bolj trdo, kot sem vajena pri njihovih senčilih a z malo truda tudi lepo pigmentirano. Jaz ga velikokrat uporabljam mokrega, saj je tako barva globja in lepša.

IMG_7822

Makeup Geek states, that Mango Tango is a peachy pink with flecks of gold. I can confirm that. It’s really a beautiful mixture of both colors and it looks great over the whole eyelid. Although the eyeshadow contains glitter (fleck of gold), it’s not really visible upon application, so I would rather say that the eyeshadow is more or less matte. The shadow is more stiff than I’m used to with their eyeshadows, but with a little effort nicely pigmented. I often use it wet, because the color is much deeper and more beautiful that way.

Sorbet sem kupila za prehodno barvo, predvsem v kombinaciji z Mango Tango. Makeup Geek trdi, da je Sorbet pastelno melona rožnato senčilo z mat finišem. Senčilo je svetlo rožnato s toplim podtonom oziroma z dodatkom breskve. Senčilo vedno uporabljam kot prehodno senčilo v gubi veke, v kombinaciji z Mango Tango je res čudovito. Senčilo je ravno prav mehko in pigmentirano, se lepo nanaša in blenda.

IMG_7823

I bought Sorbet as a transition color, especially in combination with Mango Tango. Makeup Geek states that Sorbet is a pastel melon pink eyeshadow with a matte finish. The eyeshadow is a light pink color with warm undertones or with a hint of peach. I always use the eyeshadow as a transitional shade in the crease, in combination with Mango Tango it’s really gorgeous. The eyeshadow is soft enough and pigmented, it applies and blends easily.

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.

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.

Lush: Frozen

V redu, priznam, da nisem preverila sestavin oziroma kako bi naj dišala tale krogla, ampak sem jo kupila, ker je še nisem preizkusila. In mogoče to ni bila najboljša ideja. Torej kopalna bombica je svetlo modre barve, na sredini je temno modra plast. Glavne note bi naj bile grenivka in tunizijski neroli. In čeprav mi grenivka zelo lepo, sveže, poživljajoče diši, mi tale krogla na noben način ni dišala po grenivki.

OK, I admit I didn’t check the ingredients or how this bath bomb is supposed to smell, but I bought it because I haven’t tried it yet. And maybe that wasn’t the best idea. So this bath bomb is light blue with a dark blue layer in the middle. The main notes are supposed to be grapefruit and Tunisian neroli. And although grapefruit smells really nice, fresh, invigorating to me, this bomb didn’t smell in any way like grapefruit.

FullSizeRender

Torej sam vonj je izjemno blag, meni po ničemer ni dišala, kar me je seveda razočaralo, saj imam dobre izkušnje z Lushevimi kopalnimi bombami. Opazovanje bombice kako se topi je po drugi strani pravo doživetje. Iz temno modre sredice se vali modra barva, ki me je presenetila z morjem srebrnih bleščic, ki so poplesavale po gladini. Ko se je bombica stopila so bleščice na vodi bile tako goste, da je izgledalo kot oljni madež. Sama voda je temno nebesno modra. Čudovita. Čeprav je kopanje v tej kopeli bilo res čarobno na pogled, pa mi ni prineslo zadovoljstva, ker ni dišalo. Prav tako je bleščic toliko, da se mi je koža bleščala in tudi po dolgem drgnjenju jih nisem uspela popolnoma odstranit. Čeprav me to načeloma ne moti, pa bi rada imela opcijo, da se ne svetim kot disko krogla. 😀 Vonj se na koži ne obdrži.

So the scent itself is really mild, it didn’t smell like anything to me which was of course disappointing, because I have good experience with Lush bath bombs. Watching the bomb dissolve is on the other hand a real experience. Blue color fizzes from the deep blue core, which surprised me with a sea of silver glitter that pranced on the surface. The glitter on the water was so thick, that when the bomb melted, it looked like an oil slick. The water itself is dark sky-blue. Wonderful. Although bathing in this bath was magical to look at, it didn’t bring me satisfaction because of the lack of scent. Because of the huge amount of glitter my skin sparkled and even after a long rub I couldn’t get them all off. Even though in principal I don’t mind it, I would like to have an option not to shine as a disco ball. 😀 The scent doesn’t linger on the skin.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, bleščice, parfum, grenivkino olje, nerolijevo olje, vrtnično olje, vinski kamen, natrijev lavrat sulfat, lavril betain, lilial, hydroxycitronellal, geraniol, limonene, linalool, srebrne bleščice, barvilo 42090, barvilo 42053.

Zmotilo me je tudi to, da je bila kad po kopanju prekrita z bleščicami in kljub tuširanju se niso vse sprale. Kože mi ni izsušila, ker je vedno plus. Za bombico sem odštela 6,95€ in žal je več ne bom kupila. Je veliko drugih, ki so mi veliko bolj všeč.

What also bothered me is that the bath tub was covered with glitter after bathing and despite washing it, they didn’t wash off. It didn’t dry out my skin, which is always a plus. I paid 6,95€ for the bath bomb and I won’t repurchase it. There are many others that I like much more.

Lush: Melting Marshmallow Moment

Lush Melting Marshmallow Moment (MMM) je luksuzna olja kopel. MMM sem izbrala na podlagi vonja, saj me spominja na njihov gel za kopanje Snow Fairy oziroma če ne poznate tega gela na Bazooko (žvečilni gumi). Torej pričakujete lahko sladek, bombončkast vonj.

Lush Melting Marshmallow Moment (MMM) is a luxury oil bath. I picked MMM because the scent reminded me of their shower gel Snow Fairy or if you don’t know the gel then Bazooka (chewing gum). So you can expect a sweet, candy scent.

IMG_6668

MMM je oblikovana v ploščati valj, ki je na eni strani rumen, na drugi strani pa rožnat s srebrnimi bleščicami. Oljna kopel ni velika kot kopalna bombica, ampak se vseeno dalj časa topi v vodi. Kopalna bombica se razgradi v minuti do dveh, medtem ko oljna kopel potrebuje dobrih šest ali sedem minut. Razlika med njima je tudi ta, da čeprav je barvna. vode ne obarva, ampak ji minimalno spremeni odtenek. Razlika skoraj ni bila opazna. Torej ni barvne in zanimive eksplozije, kot je pri kopalni bombici.

MMM is in a flat cylinder form, which is yellow on one and pink with silver glitter on the other side. The oil bath is not as big as the bath bomb, however it does take more time to dissolve in water. The bath bomb dissolves in a minute or two while the oil bath needs good six or seven minutes. The difference between them is also that, although the oil bath is colored, it doesn’t color the water, just changes the tint slightly. The difference was hardly noticeable. So there isn’t any colorful explosion as it is with the bath bomb.

Glede na to, da je oljna kopel, je na vodi tanka oljnata plast. Koža je po kopanju izredno mehka in navlažena, uporaba losjona ali kreme ni potrebna. Tudi vonj je dovolj intenziven, da je koža po kopanju do dve uri odišavljena. Kad je potrebno po kopanju umiti, saj se na dnu poležejo bleščice pa tudi olje lahko ostane na kadi.

Due to the fact, that this is an oil bath, there is a thin oily layer on the water. The skin is really soft and moisturized after bathing, the use of body lotion or body butter is not necessary. The scent is also intense enough so the skin smells like the bath for up to two hours. You do need to wash the bathtub after, because the glitter can gather on the bottom of it and also oil can remain on the bathtub.

Meni je oljna kopel všeč in si jo bom še privoščila, saj je občutek na koži enkraten, ne bo pa nadomestila mojih kopalnih bombic, ki bodo pri meni ostale na prvem mestu. Čeprav sam video ni tako zanimiv, kot pri kopalnih bombicah, pa sem ga vseeno posnela, da dobite občutek kako to izgleda v praksi.

I do like the oil bath and I will buy it again, because the feeling on the skin is excellent, but it will not substitute my bath bombs, which are staying in first place. Although the video is not as interesting as the bath bomb videos are, I still made it so you can get a sense on how it looks in practice.

Lush Lover Lamp

Ker je valentinovo pred vrati sem morala poskusit vsaj en izdelek iz Lusha iz te kolekcije. Lover Lamp mi je hitro padla v oči, saj so se mi srčki na bombici kar zasvetili.

Because Valentines is close I had to try at least one product from Lush from that collection. Lover Lamp stood out in my eyes, because the hearts on the bath bomb just lit up. 

lll

Bombica je bele barve s tremi rdečimi srčki. Dišala bi naj po olju brazilske pomaranče in vaniliji. Preden sem bombico vrgla v vodo sem citruse kar fejst vohala, ko se je pa bombica stopila pa je prišla do izraza vanilija, medtem ko citrusov več nisem vohala tako močno. To me sploh ne moti saj imam vanilijo zelo rada. Iz bombice so izplavali trije veliki rdeči srčki in nešteto majhnih srčkov, ki so se postoma topili v vodi. Bombica vsebuje tudi bleščice, ki pa niso tako opazne, saj postane voda mlečno bela. Bombico v akciji si lahko ogledat v videu spodaj.

The bomb is white with three red hearts. It’s supposed to smell like Brazilian orange oil and vanilla. Before I put the bath bomb in the water I could smell the citrus quite well, but when the bomb melted I could smell vanilla more. I don’t mind that because I really like vanilla. Three big red hearts and numerous small hearts came out of the bomb which dissolved gradually. The bath bomb also contains glitter, which is not that noticeable, because the water turns milky white. You can see the bath bomb in action in the video down below.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, kakavovo maslo, titanov dioksid, absolut vanilije iz pravične trgovine, olje brazilske pomaranče, organsko ekstra deviško olivno olje, organsko ricinusovo olje, užitni rdeči srčki, limonene, parfum, zlate bleščice, barvilo 14700.

Na gladini vode sem opazila oljnato plast o čemu pričajo tudi sestavine, saj vsebuje bombica veliko olj in kakavovo maslo. Koža je zaradi tega mehka in navlažena. Na koži sicer ostane rahlo masten sloj, ki me v teh mrzlih mesecih ne moti. Bleščice se tudi prilepijo na kožo, zato priporočam, da se po kopanju še na hitro stuširate, da odplaknete bleščice. Lahko jih pa seveda pustite na koži. 🙂 Meni je bila bombica všeč in sigurno si bom kupila še eno, ali dve, ali tri… Zaenkrat je še na voljo v spletni trgovini Lush, kako je s stanjem v trgovinah pa ne bi vedela.

I did notice an oily layer on the surface of the water which is supported by the ingredients, because the bomb does contain a lot of oils and cocoa butter. The skin is soft and moisturized because of that. There is a slightly oily layer left on the skin, but in these cold months I don’t mind. The glitter does also stick to the skin so I recommend a quick shower after the bath, to wash away the glitter. Or you can leave it on the skin. 🙂 I liked the bath bomb and I will definitely buy one more, or two, or three… It’s still available in the Lush online shop, but I don’t know about the situation in stores.
