Makeup Geek: Grandstand

img_8723

Čeprav Makeup Geek senčila ocenjujem ponavadi v paru, pa je to edino “foiled” senčilo, ki ga imam in zato ga ocenjujem posamezno, saj je tudi cena višja, kot pri navadnih Makeup Geek senčilih.

Although I usually review Makeup Geek eyeshadows in pairs, this is the only foiled eyeshadow that I have so I’m reviewing it by itself and also the price is higher than usual with the “normal” Makeup Geek eyeshadows.

Makeup Geek trdi, da so njihova “foiled” senčila nekaj posebnega, saj so hibrid med kremnimi senčili in senčili v prahu/kamnu. Ponujajo neverjetno pigmentacijo v kombinaciji s kovinskim finišem. Senčilo je res izredno kremasto a hkrati ni kremno. Že na otip je drugačno. Meni je ta formula res odlična in vredna svoje cene.

Makeup Geek claims that their foiled eyeshadows are something special because they are a hybrid between cream and powder eyeshadows. They give incredible pigmentation in combination with a metallic finish. The eyeshadow is really very creamy but not a cream. Even at the touch it’s different. This formula is really excellent and worth the price in my opinion.

Samo senčilo Grandstand je srednje rožnato zlato z malenkost sivkasto-vijoličnega podtona in kovinskim finišem seveda. Sama bi senčilo opisala kot rožnato zlato. Senčilo torej je izredno pigmentirano, najboljše se nanaša s ploščatim čopičem ali celo prstom in se tudi lepo razmazuje. Senčilo je obstojno cel dan in se kljub kremasti teksturi ne poseda v gubo veke (vedno uporabljam bazo za senčila). Sama ga uporabljam za večerne izglede in ponavadi čez celo veko ali na sredini veke za nekaj več.

The eyeshadow Grandstand is a medium rose gold with a hint of taupe undertones and of course a foiled finish. I would describe the color as rose gold. The eyeshadow is extremely pigmented and applies best with a flat brush or even with a finger and also blends nicely. It lasts all day and doesn’t set in the crease although it’s so creamy (I always use an eyeshadow base). I use it mostly for evening looks and usually over the whole eyelid or on the center of the lid for something more.

Tako kot ostala, tudi to senčilo ni v svoji embalaži, ampak boste potrebovale magnetno paleto, za hranjenje. Cena enega senčila je 10€ na Beauty Bay strani, kjer sem ga tudi sama kupila. Makeup Geek je pripravil nova senčila, ki so že na voljo v tujini, tokrat tudi ta s “foiled” finišem. Se že veselim novega nakupa. 🙂  Prav tako ne pozabite, da vas v petek čaka make-up izgled z uporabo tega senčila.

Like the other ones, this eyeshadow doesn’t come in its own packaging so you’ll need a magnet palette to store them in. The price of one eyeshadow is 10€ on the Beauty Bay site where I bought it. Makeup Geek has developed new eyeshadows that are already available abroad, this time also foiled eyeshadows. I look forward to purchasing some new shades. 🙂 Also don’t forget that there will be a makeup look on Friday with this eyeshadow.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

H&M: Powder Puff lipstick

IMG_8069

H&M kozmetika me vedno pritegne in ker me zadnje čase vedno bolj mikajo šminke sem se odločila tudi poskusit eno. Čeprav mi je večina barv všeč, pa sem izbrala tako, ki jo bom največ tudi uporabljala.

H&M cosmetics always attracts me and because lately I’ve been into lipsticks I decided to try one out. Although I like most of the colors I chose the one that I’ll use the most.

IMG_8071

Embalaža mi je zelo lepa, krem in zlata (z zlato v mojem mnenju ne morejo zgrešit), izgleda izredno šik. Šminka ima navoj, ki dobro deluje, pokrov je na klik. Sama šminka je pakirana še v kartonasto škatlico. Vonja skorajda nima, le narahlo voham vanilijo. Prav tako nima okusa. Sama sem izbrala odtenek Powder Puff, ki je nevtralno zaprašeno rožnata barva.

The package is really nice, cream and gold (you can’t go wrong with gold in my opinion) and it looks really chic. The lipstick has a twist up system that works great and the lid is a click on. The lipstick itself is packaged in a cardboard box. It’s almost scentless, I slightly smell vanilla. It also has no flavor. I chose the shade Powder Puff which is a neutral dusty pink color.

Šminka je kremaste teksture, ni mat, a je kljub temu relativno dobro obstojna. Prav tako z enim nanosom prekrije moje ustnice. Šminka je lepo mazljiva, se ne razliva v gubice. Sama jo najraje kombiniram z Essence Longlasting barvico za ustnice v odtenku 05 Lovely Frappuccino in tako je šminka še bolj obstojna. Seveda jo je potrebno po kakšni uri, uri pa pol ponovno nanesti, še posebej če boste jedle ali pile. Ustnic mi ne izsuši, prav tako jih ne navlaži.

The lipstick has a creamy texture, it’s not matte but it’s still relatively long wearing. One swipe covers my lips. The lipstick is nicely malleable and doesn’t bleed into lines. I like to combine it with the Essence Longlasting lipliner in the shade 05 Lovely Frappuccino and that makes the lipstick even more long wearing. Of course you’ll have to reapply after about an hour, hour and a half, especially if you eat or drink. It doesn’t dry out my lips nor does it moisturize them.

Meni so H&M šminke res super, vendar pa je cena po mojem mnenju za te šminke kar visoka. Za H&M bi pričakovala nižjo ceno, kljub kvaliteti, saj sem za šminko odštela 10€. Nagledanih imam še par nevtralnih odtenkov a glede nakupa se še nisem odločila, izključno zaradi cene. H&M kozmetične izdelke lahko kupite v njihovi spletni trgovini ali v Cityparku v Ljubljani. Imati vi kakšen H&M izdelek, ki ga moram poskusiti? Kakšen glos, barvico za ustnice ali kaj drugega?

I really like the H&M lipsticks but the price is quite high in my opinion. I would expect a lower price for H&M despite the quality because I paid 10€ for the lipstick. I have a few other neutral shades on my wishlist but I still haven’t decided if I’ll buy them solely because of the price. You can buy the H&M cosmetics on the website or in Citypark in Ljubljana. Do you have any H&M product that I have to try? A gloss, lipliner or something else maybe?

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.
