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.

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?

Moja odvisnost?

Partner me je nekaj časa nazaj vprašal od katerega produkta sem odvisna? Čeprav je pri ličilih in kozmetiki težko ostati pri enem ali dveh produktih pa sem se po dolgem razmisleku odločila, da je to najverjetneje balzam za ustnice, saj ni pomembno koliko jih imam, če opazim nekaj kar mi je všeč, bom to kupila. 😀 Tako imam v vsaki torbici najmanj enega, na vsaki polički enega ali dva, tudi po predalih in žepih se vedno kotalijo. Ne vem zakaj je temu tako, ampak to je pač produkt, ki ga vedno znova in znova kupujem, saj se mi vedno zdi, da pa jih še nimam dovolj. Prav tako imam zahtevne ustnice, ki se rade izsušijo in vedno iščem kaj boljšega. 🙂 Verjetno je razlog tudi ta, da večina balzamov ni tako draga in potem nakup s tem upravičim.

My boyfriend asked me a while ago which product am I addicted to? Although it’s hard to stay with one product when it comes to make-up and cosmetics, after a long deliberation I decided that it would probably have to be the lip balm, because no matter how much of them I have, if I see something that I like I will buy it. 😀 I have at least one in every purse, one or two on every shelf and even in drawers and pockets I can find them rolling. I don’t know why it’s like that, but that’s just a product that I tend to buy all the time, because I always think that maybe I don’t have enough. I also have very demanding lips that chap easily so I’m always on the lookout for something better. 🙂 The reason for that is also that the majority of lip balms is not that expensive.

Moj najljubši je in verjetno še dolgo bo Nuxe Reve de miel balzam za ustnice. Ne bom vsakega posebej opisovala, ker bi predolgo trajalo, bom pa naredila seznam vseh, ki jih imam oziroma vseh, ki so na sliki, saj vseh niti našla nisem. Obupna sem, saj vem. 😀 In ko ravno govorimo o moji odvisnosti sem v torek kupila še enega, katerega sem si nekaj časa ogledovala in sicer Melvita Rožni nektar za ustnice. Če bi radi, da določenega opišem oziroma ocenim bolj natančno potem mi to povejte v komentarju. 😉

My favorite is and probably will be for some time the Nuxe Reve de miel lip balm. I won’t review each and every one, because it would take too long, but I will make a list of all of the lip balms that I have or the ones that are in the picture, because I couldn’t find all of them. I’m terrible I know. 😀 And now that we’re talking about my addiction, I bought another one on Tuesday. It’s Melvita 3 roses nectar for lips. If you would like me to review any of the lip balms listed below just let me know in the comments. 🙂

Ali imate vi kakšno odvisnost? Kateri produkt vedno kupite, čeprav imate doma že cel kup produktov za isti namen? 🙂

Do you have any addictions? Which product do you always buy, even though you have many of them for the same purpose at home already? 🙂

Seznam mojih balzamov / My lip balm list:

Lip smacker (8 različnih okusov / 8 diferent flavors), Nuxe Reve de miel lip moisturizing stick, Bio Beaute by Nuxe lip balm with apricot butter X2, Avene Cold cream lip balm, Dr. Hauschka lip balm, Dvorec Trebnik honey lip balm, Vichy Capital Soleil lip stick medium protection, Dr. Pasha lip balm, REN Vita Mineral lip balm, Carmex original tube lip balm, Nuxe Reve de miel lip balm X2, Melvita 3 roses nectar for lips.

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.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 🙂
