Benefit: Cheekathon

IMG_8001

Od Benefita imam že par izdelkov, tudi rdečila. Eno izmed mojih ljubših rdečil je prav od Benefita in sicer Bella Bamba, ki je vzeta iz prodaje, jaz pa sem že skoraj pri koncu. 😦 Prav tako imam Coralisto, ki pa mi je padla na tla in se razbila. Čeprav sem jo popravila, pa se vseeno drobi kar precej in jo nerada uporabljam. Kar se kvalitete tiče pa sta ti dve rdečili top, zato sem bila tudi tako navdušena nad to paleto.

I have a few products from Benefit, blushes also. One of my favorite blushes is from Benefit and it’s the Bella Bamba that was discontinued and I almost used it up. 😦 I also have Coralista, that fell on the floor and broke. Although I did fix it it still crumbles a lot so I don’t like using it. As far as the quality goes these two blushes are amazing and that’s why I was so excited about this palette.

Paleta vsebuje pet full size rdečil: Dandelion, Hoola, Rockateur, Dallas in Coralisto. Embalaža je kartonasta, vendar zelo dobro izdelana. Paleta je rožnate barve z zlatimi flekci in izredno všečno slikico na prednji strani. Z notranje strani imam ogledalo dobre velikosti, plastično zaščito (ki sem jo takoj vrgla), majhno krtačko in 5 rdečil. Notri je bila prav tako majhna knjigica z navodili in triki. Paleta bi lahko bila rahlo ožja in tako bolj primerna za potovanja a se tudi s to znajdem.

The palette contains five full size blushes: Dandelion, Hoola, Rockateur, Dallas and Coralista. The packaging is cardboard but very well made. The palette is pink with gold flecks and a really cute picture on the front. There’s a mirror on the inside that is a good size, a plastic cover (that I threw right away), small brush and 5 blushes. There was also a small book with tips and tricks. The palette could be a bit thinner so it would be better for traveling but I can work with this.

Če preidem na sama rdečila. Dandelion in Hoola sta mat, Dallas in Coralista imata sijaj, Rockateur pa ima mikro bleščice. Rdečila so zelo kvalitetna, ravno prav mehka, dobro pigmentirana in se lepo nanašajo in zabrišejo. Mat rdečili sta rahlo bolj pudrasti a mene iskreno to ne moti. Čopič je OK, nič posebnega, sama ga uporabljam za konturiranje s Hoola bronzerjem in se dobro obnese.

Let me get to the blushes. Dandelion and Hoola are matte, Dallas and Coralista have a sheen, Rockateur has shimmer. The blushes are very good quality, soft enough, nicely pigmented and apply and blend easily. The matte blushes are a bit more powdery but I honestly don’t mind. The brush is OK, nothing special, I use it for contouring with the Hoola bronzer and it works well.

Dandelion je nežno rožnato rdečilo, ki po mojem mnenju paše na vsak ten. Hoola je kultni mat bronzer z neutralnim podtonom, tako da je super za konturiranje. Rockateur je prav tako nežno rožnato rdečilo z dodatkom slezenaste ter  z zlatimi mikro bleščicami, ki dajo licu lep sijaj. Dallas je rožnato rjavo rdečilo s toplim podtonom, tako da je super za punce s temnejšim tenom oziroma če ga nanesemo previdno je lahko lepo nevtralno rdečilo. Zadnje je Coralista, ki je najbolj znano rdečilo od Benefita in tudi najbolj univerzalno po mojem mnenju, saj je čudovita barva breskve z lepim sijajem.

Dandelion is a soft rose blush that in my opinion work on everyone. Hoola is a cult matte bronzer with neutral undertones so it’s great for contouring. Rockateur is also a soft rose blush with a hint of mauve and gold shimmer that gives the cheeks a nice shine. Dallas is a pinkish brown blush with warm undertones so it’s great for girls with a darker skin tone or if you use a light hand it’s a great neutral blush. The last is Coralista that’s also the most famous blush from Benefit and also the most universal in my opinion because it’s a gorgeous peach with a nice shine.

Če pogledam na paleto kot na celoto, bi lahko rekla, če ne bi bila obsedena z ličili, da je to edina paleta za obraz, ki jo potrebujem. A bodimo realni, verjetno bom kaj hitro našla nekaj kar bom spet nujno potrebovala. 😀 Kljub temu sem s paleto izredno zadovoljna. Paleto sem kupila v Sephori v Italiji in za njo odštela 60€, kar je super, saj je drugače eno posamezno rdečilo od Benefita okoli 33€. Paleta se še dobi v Sephori in na določenih spletnih straneh, tako da če vas zanima potem pohitite, saj ne bo dolgo v prodaji. Za več slik in swatchev pa klik tukaj.

If I look at the palette as a whole I could say, if I wasn’t obsessed with make-up, that this is the only face palette I need. But let’s be real I’ll probably find something soon that I’ll need. 😀 Nevertheless, I’m extremely satisfied with the palette. I bought it in Sephora in Italy and paid 60€ which is great because otherwise a single blush from Benefit goes for around 33€. You can still get the palette in Sephora and on certain websites so if you’re interested hurry up because it is a limited edition item. For more pictures and swatches click here.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Nuxe: Huile Prodigieuse

IMG_7956

Olja mi niso najbolj pri srcu, čeprav imam precej suho kožo na telesu, saj ne maram mastnega občutka na koži. Kljub temu, sem bila tega olja vesela. Imela sem že olje od Nuxea z bleščicami in ni mi bilo všeč, saj je bilo za moj občutek veliko preveč bleščic in pri uporabi so se zalepile na dlan in le s težavo sem jih umila. Prav tako pa je to olje kultno in vesela sem, da ga imam v svoji kolekciji.

Although I have quite dry skin I don’t like oils too much, because I don’t like the greasy feeling on my skin. Nevertheless I was happy to get this oil. I’ve had a Nuxe oil with shimmer before and I didn’t like it, because it was too shimmery for my taste and the shimmer stuck to my palm while using it and I had difficulty washing it off. Also this is a cult oil and I’m happy to have it in my collection.

Moje olje ima embalažo iz omejene kolekcije in čeprav je embalaža izredno seksi in čudovita pa me moti, ker ne vidim koliko produkta je še ostalo. Drugače pa izredno šik črna steklenička z zlatim pokrovom in zlato špricalko ter z zlatim napisom. Špricalka dobro deluje. Všečno. 🙂

My oil is in a limited edition package and although the packaging is extremely sexy and gorgeous it bothers me that I can’t see how much product is left inside. Otherwise it’s an extremely chic black bottle with a gold cap and spray and gold lettering. The spray works well. Cute. 🙂

Nuxe trdi, da je Huile Prodigieuse suho olje z edinstveno koncentracijo dragocenih rastlinskih olj in vitamina E, ki hrani, obnavlja in mehča kožo obraza, telesa in lase. Edinstvena mešanica 6 dragocenih rastlinskih olj (lešnik, makadamija, boreč, šentjanževka, kamelija, sladki mandelj) in nežne dišave koži podajo žametni občutek, lasje postanejo svileni, vidnost strij se zmanjša.

Nuxe states that Huile Prodigieuse is a dry oil with a unique concentration of valuable plant oils and vitamin E which nourishes, repairs and softens the skin of the face, body and hair. The unique blend of 6 precious plant oils (Hazelnut, Macadamia, Borage, St. John’s Wort, Camellia, Sweet Almond) and delicate fragrance leave the skin feeling velvety, hair becomes silky, the visibility of stretch marks is reduced.

To da je olje lahko suho je zame največja uganka, saj se mi zdi totalno nasprotje, vendar pa sem že doživela da je bilo olje “suho”. Tako je tudi s tem oljem. Ob zmernem nanosu se olje hitro vpije in ne obsedi na koži. A pozor, pri večjih količinah se ne vpije, ampak ostane na koži. Pri meni se je zgodilo podobno, verjetno zato, ker sem ga uporabljala v pasji vročini (35°C in več) in se je olje izločalo skupaj s potom. Olje sem uporabljala le v primeru, ko sem imela oblečene kratke hlače, obleko, majčko brez rokavov in ga nanesla na noge in roke. Olje se lepo razmaže, kožo nahrani in da čudovit sijaj.

For me the greatest enigma is how can an oil be dry, because I find that to be totally opposite, but I have experienced an oil being “dry”. So it was with this one as well. When used moderately the oil absorbs quickly and doesn’t sit on the skin. But beware, when using too much the oil doesn’t absorb, but it stays on the skin. I had a similar experience, probably because I used it in intense heat (35°C and more) and the oil secreted with the sweat. I used the oil only when I wore shorts, dress, sleeveless shirt and applied it to my legs and arms. The oils spreads nicely, it nourishes the skin and gives a wonderful glow.

Če preidem k vonju. Meni diši čudovito, po poletju. Je rahlo sladek, na trenutke me spominja na olje/kremo za sončenje, ampak bolj prefinjeno. Zaznam oreščke. Občasno si malo olja pošpricam na roko samo zaradi vonja. Ker je vonj precej močan in ostane na koži kar dolgo vam priporočam, da olje povohate preden ga kupite. Zaenkrat olje uporabljam le na koži telesa. Za obraz se mi ne zdi primerno, za lase pa bom ga še poskusila, vendar predvidevam, da je potrebno biti pazljiv pri količini nanosa.

If I turn to the scent. It smells beautiful to me, like summer. Slightly sweet, at times it reminds me of sunscreen, but more sophisticated. I recognize nuts. Occasionally I spritz a bit of oil on my arm just because of the smell. Because the scent is quite strong and stays on the skin for quite some time, I do recommend you smell the oil before you buy it. For now I use the oil on my body only. I don’t think it’s appropriate for the face and I do plan to try it on my hair, but I assume that it’s good to be careful with the amount.

IMG_7986

Olje bom uporabljala čez celo poletje, pozimi pa imam raje kreme in losijone za telo. Si znam predstavljati, da ko bom olje porabila, bom kupila novega, saj kaj takega enostavno morate imeti v kolekciji. Kupite ga lahko v večini lekarn kot tudi v spletnih trgovinah (lekarnar.com) in zanj boste odštele okoli 31€ za 100ml ali okoli 18€ za 50ml, odvisno od tega kje ga boste kupili.

I will use the oil throughout the summer, in the winter I prefer creams and lotions for the body. I can imagine, that when I use the oil up I will buy a new one, because you just have to have something like this in your collection. You can buy it in most pharmacies as in online stores (lekarnar.com) and you will pay around 31€ for 100ml and aroung 18€ for 50ml, depending on where you buy it.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉
