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: 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.

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.

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. 😉

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.

Max Factor: Pan Stik

Pan stick

Tale puder v stiku sem uporabljala že v srednji šoli. Ker nisem imela nikoli večjih težav z aknami sem puder nanesla kvečjemu pod očmi in okoli nosu. Ker se je barva pudra zlila z mojo kožo, sem to tudi brez težav naredila. Ne spomnim se kdaj sem ga nehala uporabljati, ampak mislim, da je minilo najmanj 10 let odkar sem ga nazadnje uporabila. Sedaj ko so pudri v stiku vedno bolj popularni, sem se odločila, da ga bom ponovno preizkusila.

I used this stick foundation in high school. Since I never had major problems with acne I applied the foundation under my eyes and around the nose only. I did that without a problem, because the color of the foundation blended with my skin. I don’t remember when I stopped using it, but I think that it has been at least 10 years since I last used it. Now that stick foundations are more and more popular I decided to try it again.

IMG_6677

Kot sem že omenila, je puder v stiku, z embalažo na navoj, ki dobro dela. Puder nanesem direktno na kožo in ga ponavadi razmažem s čopičem, saj je tako prekrivnost boljša. Puder je izredno kremast, tako da se enostavno razmaže. Je dobro srednje prekriven, s ponovnim nanosom na določena mesta, ki to potrebujejo, lahko prekrivnost povečam. Jaz ga imam v odtenku 12 – true beige.

The foundation is in a stick form, as I already mentioned, with a twist up packaging, that works fine. I apply the foundation directly to the skin and I usually blend it out with a brush, because the coverage is better that way. The foundation is extremely creamy so it blends easily. It has a good medium coverage which I can build up in places where needed. I have it in the shade 12 – true beige.

IMG_6680

Puder, tako kot vsakega drugega, fiksiram s pudrom v prahu. Ker je tako kremast, se mi koža precej hitro zmasti. Po eni uri se že svetim okoli nosu in po čelu. Za dame, ki imate mastno kožo bo to še večji problem, tako da ga odsvetujem, za tiste s suho kožo pa bo odličen. Puder je obstojen v primeru, da se obraza ne dotikate (kar se jaz ne), drugače se prenaša, tako na oblačila, kot tudi na roko, prste, ob dotiku.

As any other, I also set this foundation with a loose powder. Because it’s so creamy, my skin gets oily really quickly. After an hour I can see an oily shine around my nose and forehead. This will be an even bigger problem for the ladies with oily skin, so I don’t recommend it, but for the ones with dry skin, this will be great. The foundation will last quite long if you don’t touch your face (which I don’t), but otherwise it does transfer to clothes, hands, fingers, upon touch.

Naravna svetloba / Natural light

Jaz sem ga kupila v Mullerju in zanj odštela okoli 12€. Jaz ga sedaj uporabljam, ko grem, na primer, v trgovino in ga nanesem s prsti samo pod očmi, okoli nosu in na bradi. To mi vzame minuto in že sem pripravljena na odhod. Če se ličim za cel dan, potem uporabim kaj bolj obstojnega in nekaj kar mi ne zmasti kože tako hitro.

I bought it in Muller and paid around 12€ for it. I use it when I go, for example, to the store and apply it under my eyes, around my nose and on my chin only. This takes a minute and I’m out the door. If I apply make-up for the whole day then I use something more long-wearing and something that doesn’t make my skin oily that fast.
