L.O.V cosmetics: Caring Volume Gloss – Mystic Sand

IMG_8604

Odkar imam dovolj dolge lase, da jih lahko spnem v čop, se spet navdušujem nad lip glossi. Čeprav me ob prvem obisku L.O.V stojala v Mullerju ni navdušilo nič, pa sem si drugič vzela malo več časa in tako tudi našla tale skriti dragulj. L.O.V bi naj bila bolj elegantna sestra Essence in Catrice kozmetike, če ne drugače pa definitivno po izgledu oziroma embalaži.

Since my hair is long enough so I can tie it in a ponytail I’m becoming more and more enthusiastic about lip glosses again. Although the first time I visited the L.O.V stand in Muller nothing really impressed me, I took a bit more time on the second visit and that’s how I found this hidden jewel. L.O.V is supposed to be the more elegant sister of Essence and Catrice cosmetics if not otherwise then definitely in appearance or packaging.

Embalaža je oglata a zaobljena prozorna tuba s tipičnim aplikatorjem  z gobico. Gobica zajame dovolj produkta za cele ustnice in ga tudi lepo razmaže. L.O.V trdi, da daje glos eleganten sijoč finiš in nežno nego v enem s pomočjo Tsubaki olja in vitamina E. Mystic Sand odtenek je rjavkasto  kožne (nude) barve z dodatki rožnate. Ker se zadnje čase navdušujem nad takimi odtenki, je tale bil kot naročen. Je precej pigmentiran, tako da moje ustnice popolnoma prekrije. Je nežnega vonja, ki ga na ustnicah ne zaznam.

The packaging is an angular rounded transparent tube with a typical doe-foot applicator. The sponge captures enough product for the whole lips and also smears is easily. L.O.V states that the gloss gives an elegant shiny finish and gentle care in one with the help of Tsubaki oil and vitamin E. Mystic Sand shade is a brown nude color with hints of rose. Because lately I’ve been really into these kind of shades this one was on cue. It’s pretty pigmented so it covers my lips completely. It has a subtle smell that I can’t smell once on the lips.

Glos je  kremast, izredno udoben in lahek na ustnicah, kar je najbolj pomembno pa je to, da ni lepljiv. Daje izredno lep lesk ustnicam, ki izgledajo skoraj mokre. Ker ni lepljiv seveda tudi ni dolgo obstojen. Na meni je zdržal dobro uro, uro pa pol, v primeru da nisem jedla. Zelo rada ga kombiniram z Essence Longlasting barvico za ustnice v odtenku 05 Lovely Frappuccino. Ustnic mi ne izsuši, ampak jih celo navlaži malenkost.

The gloss is creamy, really comfortable and light on the lips and most importantly it’s not sticky. It gives the lips an extremely beautiful shine that looks almost wet. Because it’s not sticky it of course isn’t long-lasting. It lasted about an good hours, hour and a half on me in case I didn’t eat. I love to combine it with the Essence Longlasting lip liner in the shade 05 Lovely Frappuccino. It doesn’t dry out my lips but it even slightly moisturizes them.

Jaz sem nad glosom in nad odtenkom navdušena, že planiram nakup še kakšnega. L.O.V lahko kupite v večini Mullerjev po Sloveniji, zanj pa boste odšteli 5,99€ kar se mi zdi zelo ugodno za tako kvaliteten glos. Ali so kakšni drugi izdelki od njih, ki mi jih priporočate?

I am extremely impressed by the gloss and the shade and I’m already planning to buy some more. You can buy L.O.V in most Mullers in Slovenia and you’ll pay 5,99€ for it which is a great price for a gloss this great in quality. Are there any other products from them that you recommend?

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Semi-Sweet Chocolate bar make-up look

IMG_7995

Kot ponavadi, sem vam tudi tokrat, po oceni Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate bar palete (ocena tukaj), pripravila izgled z uporabo prav te palete. Ustvarila sem make-up izgled, ki ga najbolj pogosto poustvarjam in ki je zame bolj dnevno-dramatičen. Upam, da vam bo všeč.

As usual I prepared a make-up look after reviewing the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate bar palette (review here), using that palette. I did the make-up look that I create most of the time and that is more of a daily-dramatic look for me. I hope you’ll like it.

IMG_8392

Najprej sem oko pripravila z bazo. Prvo senčilo, ki sem ga uporabila je bilo Mousse (1.), ki mi je služilo kot prehodna barva, prav tako pa sem ga potegnila v gubo veke. To sem ponovila 2-3x. Nato sem nadaljevala z rahlo ožjim blending čopičem in nanesla Peanut Butter (2.) v samo gubo veke, da sem dala veki malo več dimenzije, več raznolikosti. Pazila sem, da nisem šla previsoko. Tudi to sem ponovila parkrat. Ko sta bili senčili lepo zblendani, razmazani, sem nadaljevala.

First I prepared my eyelid with a base. The first eyeshadow I used was Mousse (1.) that served as an transitional shade and I also pulled it lower in the eye crease. I repeated this step 2-3x. Then I continued with a more narrow blending brush and applied Peanut Butter (2.) only in the crease to give the eyelid a little more dimension, more diversity. I was careful not to go too high. I also repeated this a few times. When the eyeshadows were nicely blended I continued.

IMG_8384

Nato sem v zunanji kotiček za poglobitev nanesla malo Truffled senčila (3.) s ploščatim čopičem in ga s čopičem za blendanje razmazala. To sem ponovila dvakrat. Nadaljevala sem s ploščatim čopičem, s katerim sem nanesla Bon Bon (4.) čez celo veko a le do očesne gube. S tanjšim čopičem za bledanje in z Peanut Butter senčilom sem popravila prehod med senčili.

Then I applied a little bit of Truffled eyeshadow (3.) with a flat brush on my outer eye corner for a little depth and blended it with a blending brush. I repeated this step twice. I continued with a flat brush that I used to apply Bon Bon (4.) over my whole eyelid but only up to the crease. I went over with a more narrow blending brush and Penut Butter eyeshadow to fix the transitions between the eyeshadows.

TFMCollage

Na spodnjo veko sem najprej na notranji rob nanesla Catrice Kohl Kajal v odtenku Blue I Know You? (moder svinčnik), nato pa tik ob trepalnicah s tankim čopičem razmazala črtalo z Blueberry swirl (5.) senčilom. Da sem modro senčilo malo ublažila sem na spodnjo veko nanesla še Peanut Butter senčilo. V notranje kotičke in pod obrvi sem nanesla senčilo Butter Pecan (6.). ter na spodnje in zgornje trepalnice nanesla maskaro.

First I applied Catrice Kohl Kajal in Blue I Know You? (blue pencil) on my waterline and then blended it together with Blueberry Swirl eyeshadow (5.) and a pencil brush right under my lashes. To tone the blue down a little I applied some Peanut Butter on the lower eyelid. In my inner corners and under my eyebrows I applied Butter Pecan (6.) and mascara to the lower and upper eyelashes.

IMG_8374

Če bi tale izgled uporabila zvečer, bi definitivno nanesla še črno ali rjavo črtalo in dodala umetne trepalnice, za malo več dramatičnosti, tako pa sem črtalo in trepalnice izpustila. Seznam ostalih izdelkov, ki sem jih uporabila je spodaj. Vam je bil ta look všeč?

If I would use this look for nigh time I would definitely apply black or brown eyeliner and add some false eyelashes to be more dramatic, but this time I didn’t use them. List of the other products I used is down below. Did you like this look?

Kardashian Beauty Honey Stick lip gloss

Naj začnem z izjavo, da gledam Kardashianove in super so mi, ampak ko se gre za njihove izdelke sem malo bolj skeptična. Prav tako sem bila pri teh glosih. Ocene na spletu so bile mešane in čeprav bi jih lahko naročila na internetu jih nisem. Potem pa sem enega slučajno zagledala v trgovini T.K. Maxx v Seiersbergu v Avstriji. Barva mi je bila všeč, pa tudi cena se mi je dopadla (5€). In sem ga kupila. Prvi, katerega sem kupila je bil Raw Honey. Raw Honey je nevtralne barve, ki povleče rahlo na roza z drobnim šimrom in metalik finišem. Kar pa zmaga pri tem glosu pa sta vonj in okus. Glos diši po medu in tudi sladek je na okus. Sama obožujem med in glos se mi je zato hitro prikupil. Glos da ustnicam lep lesk in jih rahlo obarva. Ustnice mi navlaži kar je samo dodaten plus.

Ker mi je bil Raw Honey tako všeč sem ob naslednjem obisku kupila še Wildflower Honey, ki je bolj rožnato nevtralen z modrim šimrom, ki pa na ustnicah ni viden. Ta odtenek na mojih ustnicah ne izstopa, ker so moje ustnice precej obarvane. Glos da lep lesk, ustnice izgledajo zdrave in kot moje ustnice le boljše. 🙂 Glosta nista lepljiva se pa obdržita na ustnicah kar nekaj časa (2-3 ure, če ne jem). Če ne marate medu in vonja po medu potem predlagam, da ga kar preskočite, saj je vonj res močan. Izbirate lahko med osmimi odtenki, vse od svetlih nevtralnih do tudi bolj rožnatih in temnih oziroma živahnih barv.

Let me start by saying that I watch the Kardashians and I love them, but when it comes to their products I’m a bit more skeptic as I was with these glosses. The reviews online were mixed and although I could have ordered them online, I didn’t. Then I accidentally saw one in T.K. Maxx in Seiersberg in Austria. I liked the color and the price (5€) so I bought it. The first I bought was Raw Honey. Raw Honey is neutral, slightly pinkish with shimmer and a metallic finish. What makes this glosses great are the scent and taste. The gloss smells like honey and it even tastes sweet. I love honey and this gloss grew on me really fast. It gives a really nice shine and colors the lips slightly. It also moisturizes the lips which is a plus.

Because I liked Raw Honey that much I bought Wildflower Honey in the next shopping trip. Wildflower Honey is more pink neutral with a blue shift which is not visible on the lips. This shade doesn’t stand out on my lips, because my lips are pretty pigmented. The gloss gives a nice shine, the lips look healthy and like my lips but better. 🙂 The glosses are not sticky but they stay on the lips for quite some time (2-3 hours if I don’t eat). If you don’t like honey or the scent of it then I suggest that you stay away from these, because the scent is strong. You can choose between eight shades, from light neutral to more pinkish and dark or bright colors.

Naravna svetloba brez fleša / Natural light without flash

Embalaža je dolga prozorna tuba z napisom in okraski v rožnato zlati barvi, kar je meni super všeč. Aplikator je tipična gobica, ki dobro opravi svoje delo. Jaz glose priporočam in sama bom sigurno še nabavila kakšno barvo. Na moji listi želja je še Cherry Blossom Honey, ki je najbolj živahno rožnat. Glose si lahko naročite tudi na Feelunique strani, ki nima poštnine. Če želite videti še več swatchev, tudi na ustnicah, pa kliknite sem.

The packaging is a long transparent tube with rose gold lettering and decorations, which I really like. The applicator is a typical doe foot and it does the job. I recommend these glosses and I myself plan on buying even more shades. I have the shade Cherry Blossom Honey on my wish list. You can order them on the Feelunique website with free shipping. If you would like to see more swatches, on lips as well, click here.

Glosa sta mi super všeč in vedno imam vsaj enega v torbici, saj sta odlična za vsak dan. Oba glosa rada kombiniram tudi z Rimmelovo šminko Airy Fairy.

I love these glosses and I always have at least one in my bag, because they are great for everyday use. I like to apply both glosses over Rimmels Airy Fairy lipstick.
