Produkti, ki mi niso všeč #2

Sicer je takih produktov bolj malo, saj se vedno potrudim, da izdelke preučim pred nakupom in da pogledam ocene drugih uporabnikov a včasih enostavno ni časa za to in kupim kaj na blef. 🙂 Zato sem spet našla 3 produkte, ki mi niso odgovarjali. To ne pomeni, da produkti niso dobri, to pomeni, da meni osebno niso všeč. Pa poglejmo kaj se je tokrat znašlo na tem seznamu.

There are not a lot of products I don’t like because I always do my best to research the product before buying it and to check reviews from other users, but sometimes there just isn’t any time for that and I buy something on a whim. 🙂 That’s why I found 3 products that didn’t work for me. This doesn’t mean that they aren’t good it just means that I personally didn’t like them. So let’s see what made the list this time.

THE BODY SHOP – VITAMIN E GENTLE FACIAL WASH

Nujno sem potrebovala nekaj za umivanje obraza in odstranjevanje ličil in ker sem načeloma navdušena nad njihovimi izdelki sem se odločila poskusiti s tem. Ker je pisalo, da je primeren tudi za umivanje ličil in da je nežen do kože ter primeren za vse tipe kože, sem mislila da z njim ne morem zgrešit. Prva napaka je bila že ta, da produkta nisem povonjala pred nakupom. Ne vem če je moj bil pokvarjen ali ne, ampak smrdel je dobesedno po plastelinu in vonj je bil zelo moteč. Ličila je sicer resda dobro umil, ampak kožo mi je po uporabi izredno zategovalo, tako da težko rečem, da je nežen do kože, saj moja mešana koža drugače ni občutljiva. Gela več ne bom nikoli kupila in ga tako tudi seveda ne priporočam.

I needed something for washing my face and removing make-up and because I’m generally impressed with their products I decided to try it out. Because it stated that it’s suitable for washing off make-up and that it’s gentle to the skin I didn’t think I could go wrong with it. The first mistake was that I didn’t smell the product before buying it. I don’t know if mine was bad or not but it smelled like play-doh and the scent was really disturbing. I did however wash off the make-up well but my skin was feeling very tight after using it so I can’t say that it’s gentle to the skin because my combination skin isn’t sensitive otherwise. I won’t buy the gel anymore and of course I don’t recommend it either.

ESSENCE – STAY ALL DAY 16 HOUR LONG-LASTING CONCEALER

Vedno rada poskusim nove korektorje, še posebej v nižjem cenovnem razredu, tako sem ob obisku Mullerja na hitro pograbila tega. Moja napaka je bila ta, da nisem prebrala dobro embalaže. Edino kar sem videla je, da bi naj bil dolgo obstojen. Sama imam rada korektorje, ki zelo dobro prekrivajo in čeprav bi tudi ta naj to naredil pa tega ne opravi dovolj dobro. Korektor na meni dobesedno izgine. Poskusila sem ga razmazati tudi s prsti in učinek ni bil nič kaj boljši. O tem ali je dolgoobstojen ne morem komentrirati, saj sem čez ta korektor potem nanesla drugega. Čeprav je korektor bil cenovno ugoden ga žal ne priporočam, saj je v mojem primeru bilo enako z ali brez tega korektorja.

I always like to try new concealers especially in the lower price range so I snatched this one while visiting Muller. My mistake was that I didn’t read the label very well. The only thing I saw was that it’s supposed to be long-lasting. I love concealers that cover really well and although this one is supposed to do the same it doesn’t do the job good enough. The concealer literally disappears on me. I tried blending it with my fingers but the effect wasn’t any better. I can’t really comment on whether it’s long-lasting or not because I had to use another concealer over this one. Although the concealer was affordable I can’t recommend it because in my case it would be the same with or without it.

SOAP & GLORY – SCRUB YOUR NOSE IN IT

Ta izdelek se ni slučajno znašel v moji košarici, saj sem se pred nakupom posvetila raziskavi. Ocene uporabnikov so bile v glavnem dobre in ob obisku Douglas-a v Avstriji sem ga tudi kupila. Piling je svetlo modre barve, goste konsistence in diši rahlo po mentolu. Sama imam rada malo bolj grobe pilinge kar ta piling ni. Piling zrnc je sicer veliko a so te tako drobne da moram s prsti močno pritisniti ob kožo, da sploh čutim učinek pilinga. Sam produkt daje na koži hladen občutek. Piling sem sicer dolgo časa uporabljala in mu dala veliko priložnosti, da se izkaže, a nikoli nisem bila zadovoljna z učinkom. Koža je sicer bila čista po uporabi a to opravi tudi moj gel za umivanje obraza. Če imate radi nežni pilingi potem bi mogoče bil dober za vas. Meni ni bil všeč in ga več ne bom kupila.

This product didn’t accidentally get in my cart because I did my research before buying it. The user reviews were mostly good and while visiting the Douglas store in Austria I bought it. The exfoliator is a light blue color with thick consistency and smells slightly of mint. I myself like more coarse exfoliators which this one isn’t. There are a lot of exfoliating granules but they are so small I really have to press hard against my skin to even feel any effect of the exfoliator. The product itself gives a cooling feeling on the skin. I used the exfoliator for a long time and I gave it plenty of opportunities to prove itself but I’ve never been satisfied with the effect. The skin was clean after using it but my face cleansing gel does the same. If you like gentle exfoliators then it might be good for you. I didn’t like it and I won’t buy it again.

To so bili torej trije izdelki, ki so me razočarali oziroma kateri mi niso bili dovolj všeč, da bi jih priporočala drugim ali jih ponovno kupila. Če vas zanima kateri trije so se prejšnjič znašli na tem seznamu ga lahko najdete TUKAJ.

So these were the three products that disappointed me or I didn’t like them enough to recommend them to others or even re-buy them. If you would like to know which three products have previously disappointed me you can find the list HERE.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 😉

Moji najljubši izdelki leta 2016 #1

bestof2016collage

Podobno kot lani, bom tudi letos razdelila moje najljubše izdelke v dve skupini in sicer v skupino z negovalnimi izdelki in v skupino z ličili in produkti za ličenje. Čeprav sem že malce pozna pa verjamem, da vas seeno zanima kateri produkti so me navdušili. Produkti, ki so bili že ocenjeni na mojem blogu bodo vsebovali tudi povezavo do originalne ocene, drugače pa bo vsak produkt spremljala kratka ocena. Pa začnimo.

as last year I also divided my favorite products into two groups, namely in a group with care cosmetics and a group with make-up. Although I’m a bit late  I do believe that you’re still interested in which products impressed me. The products that were already reviewed on my blog will contain a link to the original review  Let’s start.

  1. ESSENCE – LONGLASTING LIPLINER

Te obstojne barvice za ustnice so bile ena izmed mojih prvih ocen na blogu in tudi po enem letu sem enakega mnenja. Barvice so fantastične, obstojne, prijetne na ustnicah, jih ne izsušijo. Edina stvar, ki me žalosti je izbira barv. Sama imam 7 izmed 9 odtenkov in čeprav so mi vse barve, ki jih posedujem zelo všeč, pa bi mi prav prišle še kakšne druge z isto formulo seveda. Pri meni so številka 1 in jih ne menjam. Povezava do ocene je TUKAJ.

IMG_6368

These longlasting lipliners were one of my first reviews on the blog and even after the whole year my opinion hasn’t changed. The liners are fantastic, long lasting, comfortable on the lips and they don’t dry them out. The only thing that makes me sad is the color selection. I have 7 from the 9 shades and although I love all of the shades I have I could use a few more with the same formula of course. For me they are no. 1 and that won’t change. Link to the review is HERE.

      2. URBAN DECAY – BEACHED BRONZER

Če ste prebrale mojo oceno potem veste, da sem popolnoma predana temu bronzerju. Uporabljala sem ga 98% časa odkar sem ga kupila in še vedno ga redno uporabljam. Porabi se ga izredno malo, glede na to da je bil to skoraj edini bronzer, ki sem ga uporabljala in še vedno nisem prišla do dna embalaže. Bronzer se čudovito nanaša, lepo razmaže po koži, koža pa izgleda naravno zagorela.  Če vas zanima več lahko celo oceno preberete TUKAJ.

IMG_7648

If you read my review then you know that I’m totally dedicated to this bronzer. I used it 98% of the time since I bought it and I still use it regularly. I still didn’t hit pan although this was almost the only bronzer I used so I can say that you won’t use it up fast. The bronzer applies and blends nicely on the skin and the skin looks naturally tanned. If you want to know more about it you can read the whole review HERE.

      3. MAC – PRO LONGWEAR CONCEALER

Čeprav sem tale korektor lani začela malo zanemarjati, saj sem želela poskusiti še kakšnega drugega, novega, pa sem se proti koncu leta spet vrnila k temu in se ponovno zaljubila. Še vedno je edini, ki skoraj popolnoma prekrije moje temne podočnjake, se ne poseda v gubice in zdrži na koži cel dan. Zame je torej že leta najboljši, ki sem ga poskusila in verjamem, da bo to še dolgo ostal. Pri MAC-u imate prav tako na izbiro ogromno odtenkov, tako da s tem ne boste imeli težav, edini minus je ta, da se v Sloveniji MAC ne dobi, se pa dobi pri naših sosedih v Zagrebu in tudi v Avstriji. Če še vedno iščete korektor za vaše temne podočnjake potem vam priporočam, da poskusite tega.

img_9407

Although I started neglecting this concealer last year because I wanted to try other ones I came back to it at the end of the year and I fell in love again. It’s still the only one that covers my under eye circles almost completely, doesn’t settle in fine lines and lasts on the skin throughout the day. For me it’s been the best for years now and I believe it will stay the best for a long time. With MAC you have a wide shade selection so you won’t have a problem with that but the only minus is that you can’t buy MAC in Slovenia but you can buy it in Austria or in Zagreb (Croatia). If you’re still looking for a concealer for your dark under eye circles then I recommend you try this one.

      4. CLINIQUE – BEYOND PERFECTING FOUNDATION & CONCEALER

Čeprav mi izbira odtenkov pri nas nikakor ne odgovarja, saj mi je najsvetlejši odtenek pozimi malce pretemen (drugače se v tujini oziroma na spletu dobijo še svetlejši odtenki) pa je še vedno moj najpogosteje uporabljen tekoči puder. Na začetku sem ga raje nanašala s čopičem, sedaj, ko moja koža ni več tako problematična, pa raje uporabim gobico, tako da izgleda malce bolj naravno. Pozimi si pomagam s svetlejšim korektorjem, da ga malce posvetlim, drugače pa je ravno prav. Prekriva zelo dobro in je dolgo obstojen. Povezava do ocene je TUKAJ.

IMG_7296

Although I really don’t like the shade selection in Slovenia because the lightest shade is still too dark for me in the winter (you can find lighter shades abroad or online) this is still my most used foundation. In the beginning I liked applying it with a brush but now that my skin is not that problematic anymore I rather use a sponge so it looks a bit more natural. I help myself with a lighter concealer in the winter to lighten it up otherwise it’s just right. It covers very good and it’s long wearing. Link to the review HERE.

       5. JOUER – LIQUID LIPSTICK

Jouer tekoče šminke sem odkrila proti koncu leta, ampak odkar sem kupila prvo in jo poskusila sem predana samo še tem tekočim šminkam. Tako izredno udobne so na ustnicah, hitro se posušijo, dolgo so obstojne, ne drobijo se, v glavnem super so. Pri temnejših oziroma bolj živih barvah je sicer potrebno po jedi v večini primerov šminko ponovno nanesti, saj na notranjem robu ustnic včasih izgine, ampak ponoven nanos je enostaven in šminka ostane udobna na ustnicah. Zame so res top in zelo rada jih uporabljam.

img_9401

I found out about Jouer liquid lipsticks at the end of the year but since I bought my first one and tried it out I’m dedicated only to these liquid lipsticks. They are extremely comfortable on the lips, they dry really fast and are long wearing, they don’t crumble and are really great. With the darker or bolder shades you do have to reapply after eating because they sometimes fade in the inner rim of the lips but reapplying is really easy and the lipstick stays comfortable on the lips. For me they are the top and I love using them.

       6. L.O.V. – CARING VOLUME GLOSS

L.O.V. glosi so me hitro navdušili saj so izredno udobni na ustnicah, jih ne izsušujejo,  mogoče jih celo malenkost vlažijo, niso lepljivi in so dobro obstojni, koliko so pač glosi lahko obstojni. Barve niso izredno pigmentirane, ampak so ravno dovolj. Sama imam 2 odtenka in veliko sem ju uporabljala od dneva nakupa. Glose res priporočam, če iščete nekaj za vsak dan. Povezava do ocene je TUKAJ.

IMG_8604

The L.O.V. glosses impressed me quickly because they are extremely comfortable on the lips, they don’t dry them out, they even moisturize them a bit, are not sticky and are quite long lasting as much as glosses can be long lasting. The colors are not crazy pigmented but are pigmented enough. I have 2 shades and I used them a lot since I bought them. I really do recommend these glosses if you’re looking something for a day to day use. Link to the review is HERE.

      7. TOO FACED – SEMI SWEET CHOCOLATE PALETTE

Za najboljšo sem jo izbrala zaradi tega, ker kadarkoli sem potovala je vedno šla z menoj. S to paleto lahko naredim hiter dnevni izgled ali bolj kompliciran, temen, večerni izgled. Ponuja mi vse kar potrebujem, senčila v paleti pa so ravno prav mehka in pigmentirana, tako da je uporaba res enostavna. Paleto sem prav tako že ocenila na blogu in povezavo do ocene najdete TUKAJ.

IMG_7993

I choose this palette as the best one because whenever I traveled somewhere it always came with me. I can do a quick daily look or a more complicated, dark, nigh time look. It offers me everything I need, the eyeshadows are just soft enough and pigmented so using it is really easy. I also already reviewed this palette on the blog and you can find the review HERE.

      8. ZOEVA – 134 LUXE POWDER FUSION

Osvetljevalec sem prej nanašala z enim drugim čopičem in nikoli nisem bila zadovoljna z izgledom, zato sem se podala v lov za novim čopičem. Najprej sem seveda pogledala na Zoevino stran, saj so mi Zoevini čopiči eni izmed najboljših. Hitro sem našla tega in ga tudi kupila v Douglasu v Avstriji. Čopič je ravno prav širok in dolg da je nanos osvetljevalca vedno perfekten. Uporabim ga vsakič ko se ličim in ne predstavljam si več življenja brez njega. Čopič priporočam vsem, ki uporabljate osvetljevalce.

img_9405

Before I applied the highlighter with a different brush and I was never happy with the way it looked so I started looking for a new one. The first site I looked at was Zoeva of course because Zoeva brushes are one of the best for me. I quickly found this one and also bought it in Douglas in Austria. The brush is just wide and long enough so the highlighter applied always looks perfect. I use it every time I put on make-up and I can’t imagine my life without it. I recommend this brush to everyone that uses highlighters.

      9. ESSENCE – PURE NUDE HIGHLIGHTER

O tem osvetljevalcu ste verjetno slišali že veliko zato ne bom dolgovezila. Osvetljevalec je naraven a kljub temu obraz izredno lepo osvetli. Poleti in jeseni je bil to edini osvetljevalec katerega sem uporabljala. Izdelek je lepo kremast, nič pudrast, na kožo se lepo prenese. Čeprav izgleda na prvi pogled precej temen pa pri nanosu na kožo nimam težav s tem saj se lepo zlije s poltjo. Priporočam ga predvsem za vsakodnevno uporabo saj menim, da z njim ne morete zgrešiti.

img_9408

You probably heard a lot about this highlighter so I won’t be long. The highlighter is natural but it still lights up the face nicely. In the summer and autumn this was the only highlighter I used. The product is nicely creamy, not powdery at all and applies to the skin really well. Although it looks quite dark at first sight I have no problem with that while applying it to the skin because it blends really nicely with my tan. I recommend it especially for a daily use because I think you can’t go wrong with this one.

Ker nerada dajem na ta seznam produkte, ki se več ne dajo kupiti, je seznam letos malce krajši. Kljub temu me je izredno navdušila še Benefit Cheekathon paleta, ki je bila redno v uporabi in pa MAC Sweet Peach duo/paleta iz zimske kolekcije. Kateri produkti so vas navdušili v lanskem letu? Pustite mi komentar spodaj!

The list is a bit shorter this year because I don’t like to put products you can’t buy anymore on it. Nevertheless I was extremely impressed by the Benefit Cheekathon palette that I was using a lot and the MAC Sweet Peach duo/palette from the winter collection. Which products impressed you in the previous year? Leave a comment down below!

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

ABH: Pro Series Powder Contour Banana in Vanilla

ABHCollage

Anastasia Beverly Hills mi je bila vedno zanimiva in vsakič, ko sem gledala punce kako so uporabljale njene palete za konturiranje, sem si želela, da bi si jo tudi jaz lahko kupila. Čez čas me je minil nakup palete, še vedno pa sem si želela dober banana puder v kamnu ali prahu za fiksiranje korektorja. Na mojo srečo je, po neuspešnem iskanju, Beauty Bay dobil posamezne pudre v kamnu za ponovno polnitev palet.

I was always interested in Anastasia Beverly Hills and every time I watched girls use her contour palette I always wished I could buy it as well. After a while I lost interest in the palette but I still wanted a good banana powder, compact or loose, for setting my concealer. Luckily for me after an unsuccessful search, Beauty Bay got the individual refill powders for the palettes.

IMG_8130

Odločila sem se kupiti kar dve barvi, saj me je skrbelo, da bi bila Banana preveč rumena zame, ki imam precej bolj nevtralno hladen podton. Tako sem poleg Banane kupila še Vanilijo. Ker so to posamezni pudri, ki so za ponovno polnitev palete, nimajo svoje embalaže, ampak so pakirani le v kartonasti škatlici in potrebujete paleto v katero jih boste shranili. Sama ju hranim v Z paleti, ki je super priročna.

I decided to buy two shades because I was worried that Banana would be too yellow for me because I have a more neutral cool undertone. So in addition to Banana I bought Vanilla as well. Because these are individual refill powders they come just in a pan packaged in a cardboard box and you need a palette to store them in. I store them in a Z palette which is super convenient.

ABHCollage3

Levo/Left: Vanilla, Desno/Right: Banana

Prvi šok, ki sem ga doživela, je bila velikost samih pudrov. Pri naročanju namreč nisem bila pozorna na težo produkta, tako da sem pričakovala standardnih 5-6g. Dobila sem seveda veliko manj in sicer 3g. Še dobro, da pudra uporabljam samo pod očmi, saj ju tako ne porabim veliko.

The first shock that I experienced was the size of the powders. While ordering them I wasn’t paying attention to the weight of the product so I expected a standard 5-6g. I of course got a lot less, namely 3g. It’s good that I only use the powder under my eyes so I don’t use a lot.

ABHCollage2

Levo/Left: Samo puder in korektor. / Just foundation and concealer.                           Desno/Right: Pod levim očesom Banana, pod desnim očesom Vanilla. / Under the left eye Banana, under the right eye Vanilla.

Banana je svetlo rumen mat puder, Vanilla pa svetlo krem, delno mat. Oba pudra sta ravno prav mehka, da se lepo oprimeta ščetin na čopiču. Pudra sta prav tako precej pigmentirana, Banana bolj kot Vanilla, tako da dodatno prekrijeta moje temne podočnjake. Ker se mi je Banana zdel prerumen sem ju začela mešati in tako dobila perfektni odtenek. Pudra dobro fiksirata moj korektor in tudi predel pod očmi lepo osvetlita.

Banana is a pale matte yellow, Vanilla is a pale demi matte cream. Both of the powders are soft enough so they stick to the brush bristles. The powders are quite pigmented as well, Banana more than Vanilla so they additionally cover my dark under eye circles. Because I thought that Banana was too yellow I started mixing them together and that’s how I got the perfect shade. The powders set my concealer really well and also brighten the under eye area.

IMG_8127

Končni izgled, pomešana pudra / Finished look, mixed powders.

Za 3g produkta sem na Beauty Bayu odštela 16,50€ kar se mi zdi veliko za sicer dober puder. Velik plus je, da je izbor odtenkov širok, tako da lahko vsaka najde nekaj zase in si načeloma kupi le enega, namesto cele palete. Jaz ju bom z veseljem porabila, nisem pa prepričana, da ju bom spet kupila. Bolj me mika Laura Mercier Brightening powder za predel pod očmi. Kaj vi uporabljate za fiksiranje korektorja? Priporočate kaj?

I paid 16,50€ on Beauty Bay for 3g of product and I find that to be too much for a powder that is good. The big plus is that there is a wide selection of shades so everyone can find something for themselves and generally buy only one instead of the whole palette. I will happily use them but I’m not sure I’ll buy them again. I’m more temped by the Laura Mercier Brightening powder for the under eye area. What do you use for setting you concealer? Do you recommend anything?

H&M: Cover Up Concealer

HM2 Collage

Vedno sem na preži, za novim korektorjem, saj imam temne podočnjake. Par blogerk je tale korektor opisalo kot dober, učinkovit, in morala sem ga poskusiti. H&M prodaja kozmetiko v Sloveniji le v Ljubljani v City Parku in tam sem ga tudi kupila.

I’m always on the lookout for a new concealer, because I have dark under eye circles. A few bloggers reviewed this concealer as good, effective, and I had to try it. H&M sells beauty products in Slovenia only in Ljubljana in City Park and that’s where I bought it.

Korektor je v tipični embalaži z gobico za aplikator. Ta embalaža mi je še najbolj všeč za korektorje. Vonja nima, barva je Ivory, ki je odtenek svetlejša od moje polti, saj korektor uporabljam za osvetlitev obraza in predela pod očmi.

The concealer is in a typical packaging with a doe foot applicator. I prefer this kind of packaging for concealers. It has no scent, the color is Ivory, which is a shade lighter than my complexion, because I use the concealer to highlight the face and my under eye area.

IMG_6650

Korektor je precej kremast in se zato tudi lepo razmaže. Jaz ga nanesem z aplikatorjem direktno na obraz, nato pa ga z Beauty Blenderjem razmažem. Korektor se dobro obnese na obrazu, saj nimam globokih gub. Druga zgodba pa je pod očmi, saj se nabere v gubice in po dobri uri mi več ni všeč kako izgleda. Prekrije precej dobro, ampak mojih izredno temnih podočnjakov skoraj noben korektor ne prekrije popolnoma, tako da to ni merilo. Jaz ga vedno fiksiram s pudrom v prahu in/ali v kamnu.

The concealer is pretty creamy and because of that it blends easily. I apply it with the applicator directly to the face, then I use a Beauty Blender to blend it out. The concealer works well on the face, because I don’t have deep wrinkles. Under the eyes is a different story, because it creases into the fine lines and after an hour I no longer like the look of it. It covers pretty good, but I have very dark under eye circles that rarely any concealer covers completely, so that’s not a criterion. I always set it with a loose and/or pressed powder.

HM Collage

Ker je kremast, mogoče ne bo najboljši za punce z mastno kožo, prav tako ne za tiste, ki imate globoke izrazne gube ali gubice pod očmi, saj se nabira vanje. Korektor je torej dober, ampak ni pa odličen, kot moj MAC ProLongwear concealer. Zanj boste odšteli 5,99€. Priporočam ga, če niste zahtevne uporabnice. 😉

Since it’s creamy it may not be the best for women with oily skin or women with deep expression lines or fine lines under the eyes, because it does crease. The concealer is therefore good, but not great, as my MAC ProLongwear concealer. You will pay 5,99€ for it. I do recommend it, if you’re not a demanding user. 😉

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

P.s.: Trenutno ga ne najdem na spletni strani, tako da je mogoče šel iz prodaje ali ni na zalogi.

P.s.: I can’t currently find it on the website, so it’s possible that it’s discontinued or out of stock.

Moj vsakodnevni make-up

Od samega začetka sem imela plan, da se bom naličila, poslikala in objavila kaj sem uporabila za določen izgled. Največ težav so mi delale fotografije, saj nikoli nisem uspela dobro poslikati oči, da bi se barve lepo videle. Tokrat sem vsaj delno uspela in zato sem se tudi odločila, da bom ta vsakodnevni “look” tudi objavila. Obljubim, da se bom v bodoče potrudila, da bodo slike še boljše. 😉 Pa začnimo.

From the very beginning I had a plan, to put on make-up, take a picture and post what I used to achieve that look. The biggest problem were the photographs, because I could never photograph the eyes good enough, to show all the colors. This time I was at least partially successful so I decided to post this everyday make-up look. I promise I will try to make even better pictures in the future. 🙂 Let’s start.

IMG_6881

Na obraz sem najprej nanesla H&M bazo za mat kožo, ki sem jo prvič poskusila, tako da ocena še sledi. Bazo sem nanesla na čelo, okoli nosu in na brado oziroma na T-predel, saj se mi tam tudi najhitreje zmasti. Potem sem nanesla tekoči puder in sicer Bourjois Healthy Mix v odtenku Vanilla 52. Sledil je korektor, H&M concealer v odtenku Ivory, ki sem ga nanesla pod očmi, na brado, okoli nosu in malenkost na sredino čela. Korektor sem fiksirala z Maybelline Dream Matte pudrom v kamnu, katerega mi je skoraj že zmanjkalo. 🙂 Preostanek obraza sem fiksirala z Maybelline Shine Free Loose pudrom, ki se je tudi znašel na lestvici najljubših izdelkov v letu 2015 (seznam najdete tukaj).

First I applied the H&M mattifying primer on my face and this is the first time I used it so the review is yet to come. I applied the primer on my forehead, around my nose and on my chin, on the T-zone, because I get greasy the fastest there. Then I applied my foundation, the Bourjois Healthy Mix in the shade Vanilla 52. Next was the H&M concealer in the shade Ivory, which I applied under my eyes, on my chin, around my nose and a bit on the center of my forehead. I set the concealer with the Maybelline Dream Matte powder, that I’m almost out of. 🙂 I set the rest of my face with the Maybelline Shine Free Loose powder, that’s also in my top favorite products in 2015 (you can find the list here).

IMG_6927

Potem sem začela z očmi. Najprej sem nanesla bazo, Essence I heart stage eyeshadow base, katero sem razmazala po celi veki. Za tale nežni izgled sem uporabila Zoevino Warm Spectrum paleto, ocena katere še sledi. Z rdečimi krogi so označena senčila, katera sem uporabila, številke pa označujejo vrstni red, kako sem jih nanašala.

Then I started with my eyes. First I applied the base, Essence I heart stage eyeshadow base, which I smudged all over the lid. I used the Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette for this soft look, review of which is yet to come. The red circles mark the eyeshadows that I used, the numbers indicate the order of how I applied them.

paleta2

Čez bazo sem nanesla prvo senčilo po celi veki, da sem veko pripravila na nanos barvnih senčil. Najprej sem kot prehodno barvo uporabila drugo senčilo, ki sem ga nanesla nad in v gubo veke. Barvo sem nanesla parkrat, da sem jo lepo razmazala vse od zunanjega do notranjega kotička očesa. Potem sem vzela oranžno senčilo, tretje po vrsti, in ga nanesla samo v gubo veke. To sem ponavljala, dokler mi intenzivnost in izgled nista bila všeč. Nato je sledilo četrto senčilo, ki sem ga nanesla čez veko, od trepalnic do pregiba. Ker se mi ni zdelo dovolj pigmentirano, sem se odločila čopič navlažiti in tako nanesti senčilo na veko. Na koncu sem vzela še enkrat širši čopič s katerim sem nanesla prehodno barvo in brez senčila šla čez gubo veke in višje, da sem barve med seboj lepo povezala. Na koncu sem pod obrvmi nanesla še svetlo mat, peto, senčilo. V notranjih kotičkih očes sem nanesla še svetlo senčilo s sijajem. Na spodnji veki sem takoj pod trepalnicami nanesla čokoladno rjavo, sedmo, senčilo in ga skupaj z osmim senčilom razmazala do želene intenzitete. Nato je sledila maskara, uredila sem obrvi in oči so bile končane.

I applied the first eyeshadow over the base, over the whole lid, and this way I prepared my eyelid for the application of colorful eyeshadows. I applied the second eyeshadow as the transition color, above the crease and in the crease. I applied the color a few times, until it was evenly blended from the outer to the inner corner of the eye. Then I took the orange eyeshadow, third in a row, and applied it only to my crease. I repeated this step until I was happy with the intensity and the appearance. The fourth eyeshadow was the next step, which I applied on my lid, from the lash line to the crease. Since it did not seem pigmented enough I decided to wet my brush and apply the eyeshadow that way. Finally I took my blending brush that was used to apply my transition shade and I blended the colors in the crease and higher again, without any additional eyeshadow. In the end I applied the light matte, fifth, eyeshadow, under my eyebrows. In the inner corners of my eyes I decided to apply the light eyeshadow with the shimmer. On my lower lid, just below the eyelashes, I applied the chocolate brown, seventh, eyeshadow and smudged it with the eight eyeshadow to the desired intensity. I applied mascara, did my eyebrows and the eyes were finished.

Na koncu sem se spet vrnila na obraz, kamor sem nanesla bronzer, Too Faced Sun Bunny bronzer, s katerim sem obraz rahlo konturirala. Za rdečilo sem uporabila Spectrum Coral paleto od Zoeve, kjer sem uporabila najsvetlejšo barvo. Za konec pa sem še nanesla osvetljevalec in sicer The Balm Cindy-Lou Manizer, katerega sem nanesla na vrh ličnic. Na ustnice sem nanesla Bobbi Brown lip gloss, Pink beige 21, in to je bilo to.

In the end I returned to my face again, where I applied some bronzer, Too Faced Sun Bunny bronzer, that I used to slightly contour my face. For the blush I used the Spectrum Coral palette from Zoeva, where I used the lightest color. Finally I applied the highlighter, The Balm Cindy-Lou Manizer, which I applied on the top of my cheeks. I used Bobby Brown lip gloss, Pink beige 21, and that was it.

Če nimate Zoeva Warm Spectrum palete potem ne skrbite, saj so katera koli senčila v podobnih barvah enako dobra. Uporabite izdelke, ki jih imate, in verjamem da vam bo uspelo ustvariti lep, vsakodnevni izgled. Če vam je ta objava všeč in si želite še več takšnih mi pustite komentar spodaj ali objavo všečkajte.

If you don’t have the Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette, don’t worry, any other eyeshadows in similar colors will be good as well. Use the products that you have and I believe that you will be able to create a nice, everyday, look.

Produkti, ki mi niso všeč #1

Čeprav ponavadi pred nakupom kakega izdelka vedno pregledam ocene, videe, itd. na internetu, pa se zna zgoditi, da za kak izdelek ne najdem ocene ali pa so ocene super, ampak meni izdelek ne ustreza. Zato bom vedno, ko bom imela tri izdelke, tudi to potem napisala in povedala, zakaj meni osebno izdelek ni bil všeč.

Although I usually read many reviews, watch videos, etc. of products before I buy them it sometimes happens that I can’t find a review or the reviews are great, but the product doesn’t work on me. So every time I will have three products that were a miss for me, I will write which ones they were and why I didn’t like them.

1. Artdeco podlaga za ustnice Beauty balm lip base

Ko so mat tekoče šminke postale hit, sem hitro želela slediti množici in jih tudi sama uporabljati. Ker sem brala ocene in izkušnje drugih blogerk, sem se odločila, da bo najboljše, da poiščem bazo za pod šminko, ki bo naredila nošenje le-te tudi bolj prijetno. Ker sem potrebovala nekaj na hitro, sem se odločila kupit izdelek, ki se ga dobi pri nas v trgovini.                                                                                                                             Kupila sem Artdeco Beauty balm lip base. Izdelek sem najprej poskusila brez šminke, torej samo tale »balzam«. Izdelek je precej tekoč, rahlo obarvan, vonj je blag. Neke razlike nisem opazila na samih ustnicah, razen tega, da so bile malo bolj svetle. Sem mislila da bo razlika opazna, ko bom nanesla čez tekočo šminko. Razlike ni bilo. Izdelek ni storil ničesar. Več učinka je imel moj najljubši balzam od Nuxea, kot tale, ki bi naj bil podlaga za šminko. Izdelek naj bi dal ustnicam push-up učinek, podaljšal obstojnost, nevtraliziral barvo ustnic in še kaj, ampak edino kar sem opazila je, da je izdelek posvetil barvo mojih ustnic. Prav tako naj bi bil vlažilen, kar ni. Da, moje ustnice so zahtevne in se hitro izsušijo, ampak ta izdelek jih vsekakor ni obvaroval od tega.                                                                                                                                Za izdelek sem plačala nekaj okoli 13€, kar se mi zdi za nekaj, kar ponavljam, ne naredi ničesar, izredno veliko. Izdelka ne priporočam.

When matte liquid lipsticks became a hit I wanted to follow the crowd and start using them. Because I was reading reviews from other bloggers I decided that it would be best if I found a base for under the lipstick, that will make wearing it much more comfortable. I wanted something quick so I decided to buy a product that was available in our stores.       I bought the Artdeco Beauty balm lip base. I tried the product without the lipstick first, so just the “balm” by itself. The balm is pretty liquid, slightly colored with a mild scent. I didn’t see a difference on the lips except that they were a little lighter. I thought that the difference would be visible when I would apply the liquid lipstick. There was none. The product didn’t do anything. My favorite Nuxe balm had a bigger effect then this one that is supposed to be a base. The product is supposed to give the lips a push-up effect, increase durability, neutralize the color of the lips and so on, but the only thing that I noticed was that it lightened the color of my lips. It is also supposed to be moisturizing and it’s not. Yes, my lips are … and they chap really fast, but this product didn’t prevent that from happening.     I paid around 13€ which is absolutely too much for a product that doesn’t do anything. I don’t recommend this product.

2. Maybelline Instant age Rewind concealer

O tem izdelku sem slišala veliko dobrega. Veliko blogerk je ta korektor hvalilo in ker imam sama zelo temne podočnjake sem ga morala poskusit. Izdelek sem si naročila preko spleta in komaj sem čakala, da ga poskusim. Na mojo žalost sama nisem navdušena nad korektorjem. Najprej naj omenim embalažo. Čeprav je ideja mogoče dobra, pa mi izvedba ni všeč. Da dobim želeno količino produkta moram kar nekaj časa vrteti potisni sistem. Ko končno nekaj produkta pride na aplikator, ki je zelo nehigieničen, ga ne morem razmazati pod očmi, saj tako odstranim tekoči puder, katerega vedno nanesem prvega. Z aplikatorjem zato tapkam pod očmi in ker je aplikator precej trd, se mi zdi da naredim več škode kot koristi na tanki in občutljivi koži. Korektor sicer deloma zakrije moje temne podočnjake in predel pod očmi tudi osvetli, saj sem izbrala en odtenek svetlejšo barvo, kot je moj ten, pa se ne more primerjati z mojim korektorjem od MAC-a. Prav tako sem opazila, da se čez čas nabira v gubicah pod očmi. Korektor sem uporabila tri krat in zdi se mi, da kar izginja. Za korektor sem plačala 9€ in izdelka sigurno ne bom več nikoli kupila.

I heard a lot of good things about this product. A lot of bloggers praised this concealer and because I have dark under eyes circles I had to try it. I ordered it online and I couldn’t wait to try it. Sadly I don’t love it. First let’s start with the packaging. Although the idea may be good the performance isn’t. To get enough product out you have to twist the packaging for quite some time. Finally when the product gets to the applicator, which is really not hygienic, I can’t swipe it under my eyes, because I remove my foundation that I always apply first. I dab the applicator under my eyes instead but the sponge on it is really stiff so I think I do more damage than benefit to my thin and delicate skin. The concealer does partially cover my dark under eye circles and it also lightens the area under my eyes, because I choose one shade lighter than my skin tone, but it can’t even compare to my MAC concealer. I also noticed that it does crease in my wrinkles under my eyes. I used the concealer three times and it looks like it’s vanishing. I paid 9€ and I would not repurchase it.

3. Melvita Arganov oljni gel za prhanje

Čeprav sem nad kremo za roke in kremnim oljem za telo iz iste linije popolnoma navdušena, pa me je ta izdelek razočaral. Konsistenca tega gela ni olje, kot tudi ni tipičen gel, ampak je podobno želeju. Gel vsebuje naravne penilce, zato se tudi le malenkost speni. Jaz imam rada, če gel za tuširanje proizvede bogato peno. Gel bi naj tudi navlažil kožo, ampak pri meni je učinek ravno nasproten. Kožo mi izsuši. Resda imam kožo pozimi izredno občutljivo, ampak od tega gela sem vseeno pričakovala več. Na koži ne pušča filma in kožo verjetno dobro umije, ampak ravno zaradi tega, ker se slabo peni, je občutek na koži čuden. Vonj je nežen, diši najverjetneje kot argan, kar ne morem potrdit, saj ne vem kako argan diši. 🙂 Meni tale gel za prhanje ni všeč in sigurno ga več ne bom kupila. Cena je 16,30€ kar je več kot preveč za, po mojem mnenju, slab izdelek.

Although I love the hand cream and body oil in cream from the same line I don’t like this product. The consistency of this gel is not oil as it’s not a typical gel but it’s more like a jelly. The gel contains natural foaming agents so it only foams slightly. I love when shower gels produce a rich foam. It is supposed to be moisturizing but with me the effect was opposite. It dried out my skin. My skin is really sensitive in the winter but I expected more from this gel. It does not leave a film on the skin and it probably does clean the skin well, but because it foams poorly the feeling on my skin is weird. The scent is gentle, probably like argan, which I can’t confirm, because I have no idea how argan smells. 🙂 I don’t like this shower gel and I won’t repurchase it. The price is 16,30€ which is too much for, in my opinion, bad product.
