LA Splash: Smitten Liptint mousse – Charmed

IMG_8521

Ker so tekoče šminke izredno popularne zadnje čase, sem komaj čakala, da tudi sama preizkusim eno iz LA Splash linije. Ocene na spletu so se mi zdele dobre, cena je bila sprejemljiva. LA Splash ima veliko različnih vrst tekočih šmink, vendar pa je formula pri vseh baje enaka. Sama imam še eno šminko iz druge linije in tudi sama lahko rečem, da je formula skoraj  enaka kot pri tej.

Because liquid lipsticks are extremely popular lately I couldn’t wait to try one myself from the LA Splash line. The reviews on the web seemed very good and the price was acceptable. LA Splash has a lot of different types of liquid lipsticks but the formula is supposed to be the same in all of them. I myself have a lipstick from another line and I can also say that the formula is pretty much the same as in this one.

IMG_8522

LA Splash trdi, da šminka zacementira barvo na ustnicah za vodoodporni rezultat brez razmazovanja, prenašanja ali bledenja. Inovativna formula drsi na ustnicah brez truda in ustnic ne obteži. Začetna tekoča tekstura se takoj posuši na žametni mat odtenek. Embalaža je tipična za tekočo šminko ali glos, prozorna tuba z napisom v rožnati metalik barvi. Aplikator je tipična gobica, ki zajame dovolj produkta za cele ustnice. Odtenek Charmed, ki sem ga izbrala pa je zaprašeno rožnato kožni (nude) odtenek. Vonj je recej močen a se hitro razdiši.

LA Splash states that the lipstick seals the color on the lips for a waterproof, smudge-proof result that will not transfer or fade. Its innovative weightless formula glides on effortlessly over the lips with a feather-light feel. The initial liquid texture immediately dries to a velvet matte tint. The packaging is typical for a liquid lipstick or a gloss, a transparent tube with lettering in pink metallic color. The applicator is a typical doe-foot applicator that captures enough product for the whole lips. The shade I picked is Charmed, a dusty rose-nude color. The scent is pretty strong but doesn’t linger.

Sama ustnice na debelo namažem z balzamom, ostanke katerega pred nanosom popivnam s papirnatim robčkom. Formula je precej tekoča, kar omogoča res enostaven nanos. Šminka se popolnoma posuši po petih minutah. V času, ko se šminka suši, odsvetujem pritiskanje ustnic skupaj. Šminka se ne prenaša, ko je enkrat suha in je tudi prijetna na ustnicah. Pri svetlejših odtenkih se velikokrat na notranjem robu ustnic naredi suh rob, kar se je meni pri tej šminki zgodilo le enkrat. Tekočina ne vpliva na šminko, pri hrani pa je odvisno od tega kaj jeste in tudi kako jeste. Mastna hrana bo vplivala na šminko, ki bo postala lepljiva in se začela drobit. Pri meni je obstojna dobrih 6 ur, v primeru da ničesar ne jem. Zbledi relativno malo. Ustnice malenkost izsuši, kar je za pričakovati pri tekoči šminki, vendar pa nanos balzama po uporabi to hitro odpravi. Odstranim jo z micelarno vodico in gelom za odstranjevanje ličil.

I heavily apply lip balm on my lips, excess of which I dab off with a paper tissue before applying lipstick. The formula is pretty liquidy which allows an easy application. The lipstick dries completely after five minutes. While waiting for the lipstick to dry I advise against pressing your lips together. The lipstick does not transfer once it’s dry and is really comfortable on the lips. With lighter shades it usually happens that a crusty rim appears on the inner part of the lips which happened to me only once with this lipstick. Liquids do not affect the lipstick but with food it depends on what you eat and how you eat it. Fatty foods will affect the lipstick which will become tacky and will start to crumble. The lipstick lasts good 6 hours on me in case I don’t eat anything. It fades only slightly. It does dry out the lips a bit which is to be expected with liquid lipsticks but applying a lip balm after using it will eliminate that quickly. I remove it with a micellar water and make-up removing gel.

Šminka ne sodeluje dobro z drugimi produkti. Ne s črtali, šminkami, glosi ali balzami. Najboljše se obnese, če so ustnice navlažene a suhe pri nanosu. Če boste nanesli črtalo pod šminko, bo ta ostala rahlo lepljiva, se bo hitro začela drobiti in se bo prenašala. Če boste nanesli karkoli čez, bo šminka spet ostala rahlo lepljiva, ampak se ne bo drobila, prav tako ne bo tako dolgo obstojna. Kljub temu je meni izredno všeč, saj je res “lahka” in udobna na ustnicah (veliko bolj kot Stila Stay All Day šminke).

The lipstick doesn’t work well with other products. Not with lip liners, lipsticks, glosses or lip balms. It works best if the lips are moisturized but dry upon application. If you’ll apply a lip liner under the lipstick the lipstick will stay a bit tacky and will start to crumble and transfer. If you’ll apply anything over it again it will stay tacky but will not crumble and it’s not going to be that long wearing. I still like it a lot because it’s really “light” and comfortable on the lips (much more than Stilla Stay All Day lipsticks).

Naročila sem jo na Beauty Bay-u, kjer imate na voljo veliko različnih odtenkov, plačala pa sem 12,80€, kar se mi zdi OK za 3ml. Jaz bom sigurno še kupila kakšen odtenek, saj mi je formula izredno všeč, prav tako je nanos enostaven, barve pa so ob “pravilni” uporabi dobro obstojne.

I ordered it on Beauty Bay where you have a lot of different shades to choose from and paid 12,80€ which I think is OK for 3ml. I will definitely buy a few more shades because I really like the formula, the application is easy and the colors are long wearing with the “correct” use.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Urban Decay: VICE Gubby & Liar lipstick

IMG_8465

Odkar sem kupila prvo šminko, sem čakala dan, da jo bom ocenila. In ta dan je končno prišel. Prva šminka, ki sem jo naročila je bila Gubby, ki me je zelo pozitivno presenetila, nato pa je sledila še šminka v odtenku Liar, ki me je prav tako navdušila.

Since I bought the first lipstick I was waiting for the day to review it. And that day has finally come. The first lipstick I ordered was Gubby which surprised me positively, followed by the lipstick Liar which also impressed me.

Urban Decay je par mescev nazaj reformuliral svoje šminke in potem spektakularno lansiral 100 šmink s šestimi različnimi finiši, med katerimi so kremni, mat, kovinski in drugi. Prav tako so spremenili embalažo, ki je meni res čudovita. Embalaža je sivo-modra z zlatim dnom, vtisnjenim imenom ob strani in logom na vrhu. Na dnu je nalepka z imenom odtenka na nalepki, ki je približek barve šminke. Odpira se enostavno in dobro tesni. Sama šminka je pakirana še v kartonasto škatlico. Na sami šminki je tudi vtisnjen logo UD.

Urban Decay reformulated their lipsticks a few months ago and then spectacularly launched 100 lipsticks with six different finishes, amongst which are cream, matte, metalized and others. They also changed the packaging which I find gorgeous. The packaging is gunmetal with a gold bottom with the name engraved on the side and the logo on the top. There’s a sticker on the bottom with the shade name that is similar to the lipstick color. It opens easily and closes tightly. The lipstick itself is packaged in a cardboard box. There’s also an embossed UD logo on the lipstick.

Naj začnem s prvo šminko, ki sem jo kupila, torej Gubby. Gubby je opisana kot (glazirana) svetlo rožnata šminka s kovinskim finišem. To lahko tudi sama potrdim. Ker je svetle barve s kovinskim finišem je veliko manj prekrivna, manj pigmentirana, in to mi je všeč. Šminko sem kupila, da jo bom nosila samostojno in za nanos čez kakšne druge mat, kremaste šminke. Največkrat pa sem jo vseeno nosila samostojno. Šminka je izredno udobna, ustnic mi ne izsuši, obdrži se pa kakšno uro, dve na ustnicah, v primeru da ne jeste, prav tako pa se ne razliva v gubice.

Let me start with the first lipstick that I bought, namely Gubby. Gubby is described as a (frosted) light pink lipstick with a metalized finish. I can confirm that. Because it’s a light color with a metalized finish has less coverage, less pigment, and I like that. I bought the lipstick to wear on its own or to apply it over other matte, creamy lipsticks. Most of the time I wore it by itself. The lipstick is very comfortable, it doesn’t dry out my lips and it stays on the lips for about an hour or two in case you don’t eat, nor does it bleed into fine lines.

Druga, katero sem naročila, je bila Liar, ki je opisana kot rožnata “nude” barva s kremnim finišem. Ta je veliko bolj kremasta, pigmentirana in posledično tudi dalj časa obstojna, če ne jeste, vendar pa ne več kot tri ure.  Ena plast popolnoma prekrije moje ustnice, za razliko od Gubby. Ustnic mi ne izsuši in zelo udobna je na ustnicah, ne razliva se v gubice, ponavadi pa tako ali tako uporabim Essence Longlasting barvico za ustnice v odtenku 05 Lovely Frappuccino in tako je šminka še bolj obstojna.  Šminko uporabljam predvsem, ko imam bolj dramatično namazane oči.

The second one I ordered was Liar which is described as a pink nude with a creamy finish. This one is a lot creamier, pigmented and consequently lasts longer if you don’t eat, but not more than three hours. Unlike Gubby, one layer is enough to cover my lips completely. It does not dry out my lips and it’s very comfortable, it doesn’t bleed into fine lines but I usually use Essence Longlasting lipliner in the shade 05 Lovely Frappuccino anyway which makes it last even longer. I use the lipstick mainly when I have a more dramatic eye look.

Šminki od Urban Decay-a sta mi izredno všeč in že imam nagledane še nekatere druge odtenke (Weirdo, Checkmatte, Seismic, Violate, Anarchy, itd.). Seveda, ko kupim naslednji dve, spet sledi ocena. Šminki sem naročila na Feelunique in za eno plačala 19,20€ za 3,4g (M.A.C. šminka ima 3g), kar pa se mi zdi za zelo dobro kvaliteto še upravičeno.

I really like the Urban Decay lipsticks and I already have a few more on my wishlist (Weirdo, Checkmatte, Seismic, Violate, Anarchy, etc.). Of course when I buy the next two a review will follow. I ordered the lipsticks on Feelunique and paid 19,20€ for one for 3,4g (M.A.C. lipstick has 3g) which seems reasonable for the great quality.

Bitten & Burlesque make-up look

IMG_8225

Kot obljubljeno sem vam danes pripravila make-up izgled z uporabo Makeup Geek senčil Bitten in Burlesque, ki sem ju ocenila v prejšnji objavi. Prav tako sem vam izdala, da bom naredila zadimljen videz oči na moj način. To je prav tako moj prvi bolj dramatičen izgled, ki sem vam ga pripravila. Upam, da vam bo všeč.

As promised I prepared a make-up look for you today using Makeup Geek eyeshadows Bitten and Burlesque that I reviewed in the previous post. I also revealed that I would be doing a smokey eye look my way. This is also my first more dramatic look that I prepared for you. I hope you’ll like it.

IMG_8198

Kot omenjeno sem uporabila senčili Bitten in Burlesque, ampak ker to seveda ni bilo dovolj, sem si pomagala tudi z drugimi Makeup Geek senčili. Najprej sem oko pripravila z bazo. Prvo senčilo, ki sem ga uporabila je bilo Latte, ki mi je služilo kot prehodna barva (1.), prav tako pa sem ga potegnila nižje, v gubo veke. To sem ponovila 2-3x. Nato sem nadaljevala z rahlo ožjim blending čopičem in nanesla Bitten v samo gubo veke (2.). Pazila sem, da nisem šla previsoko. Tudi to sem ponovila parkrat. Ko sta bili senčili lepo zblendani, razmazani, sem nadaljevala.

As mentioned I used the Bitten and Burlesque eyeshadows but because that  wasn’t enough I helped myself with other Makeup Geek shadows. First I prepared my eyelid with a base. The first eyeshadow I used was Latte that served as an transitional shade (1.) but I also pulled it lower in the eye crease. I repeated this step 2-3x. Then I continued with a more narrow blending brush and applied Bitten only in the crease (2.). I was careful not to go too high. I also repeated this a few times. When the eyeshadows were nicely blended I continued.

IMG_8196

Ker sem si želela malo več dimenzije, sem v zunanji kotiček očesa (3.) s ploščatim čopičem nanesla Americano in ga s čopičem za blendanje razmazala. To sem ponovila dvakrat. Nadaljevala sem s ploščatim čopičem, s katerim sem nanesla Burlesque čez celo veko a le do očesne gube. S tanjšim čopičem za bledanje in z Bitten senčilom sem popravila prehod med senčili. Nanesla sem črni gel eyeliner za še bolj dramatičen izgled.

Because I wanted a little more dimension I applied Americano with a flat brush on my outer eye corner (3.) and blended it with a blending brush. I repeated this step twice. I continued with a flat brush that I used to apply Burlesque over my whole eyelid but only up to the crease. With a more narrow blending brush and Bitten eyeshadow I went over the crease one more time to blend it together. I applied black gel eyeliner for an even more dramatic look.

Look3Collage

Na spodnjo veko sem ob trepalnicah nanesla Bitten in senčilo malo zblendala s senčilom Latte. Nanesla sem maskaro na spodnje in zgornje trepalnice. Da sem oko malo odprla sem v notranje kotičke nanesla pikico senčila Shimma Shimma in na notranji rob spodnje veke Stila barvico za oči v odtenku Topaz (bež).

I applied Bitten on the lower eyelid by the lashes and blended the eyeshadow with a little Latte shadow. I applied mascara to the lower and upper eyelashes. To open the eye a little I put a dot of Shimma Shimma in the inner corner of the eye and Stila Topaz (beige) eyeliner on my waterline.

IMG_8215

Ker sem oči močno naličila, sem na obrazu uporabila bolj nežne, nevtralne odtenke. Za piko na i bi morala uporabiti še umetne trepalnice a ker sem hitela na piknik (tako je, takšna sem šla popoldan na piknik, ljudje so verjetno mislili, da sem zmešana :D) sem jih izpustila. Seznam ostalih izdelkov, ki sem jih uporabila je spodaj. Vam je bil ta look všeč?

Because my eyes were so dark I used more delicate, neutral shades on the face. False eyelashes would be the cherry on the top but because I was rushing to go on a picnic (yes, I went on a picnic in the middle of the day looking like this, people probably thought I was crazy :D) I skipped that. List of the other products I used is down below. Did you like this look?

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Seznam ličil/Make-up list: obraz/face (Rimmel Stay Matte liquid mousse foundation, ABH Banana & Vanilla powder, Maybeline Shine Free Loose powder, Urban Decay Beached Bronzer Bronzed, Essence Pure Nude highlighter, Zoeva Coral blush palette, NYX Auto Eyebrow pencil, Essence Make me brow), ustnice/lips (Essence Longlasting lipliner Lovely Frappuccino, YSL Rouge Volupte 2).

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.

IMG_8073

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.

hm4Collage

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?

Potovalna make-up torbica

travelCollage

Tokrat sem se odločila deliti z vami kaj nesem s seboj, ko grem na dopust. Načeloma vedno poskušam spakirati čim manj stvari in čeprav sem prej ponavadi nesla kar vse s sabo, pa sem sedaj res pridna, saj nesem le “nujne” stvari. Kljub temu nekaj opcij potrebujem, zato moja kozmetična torbica v nobenem primeru ni prazna.

This time I decided to share with you what I take with me, when I go on vacation. In principal I always try to pack as little as I can and although I used to take everything, I’m really good now, because I take only “necessary” things. Nevertheless I do still need some options, so my cosmetics bag is in no way empty.

travel1Collage

Naj začnem pri bazi. S seboj nesem dve bazi, eno za obraz in eno za oči. Za obraz poleti največkrat uporabljam The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser in pa Essence I ❤ Stage baza za oči. Naslednji je tekoči puder. Ker sem popolnoma navdušena nad Clinique Beyond perfecting foundation + concealer tekočim pudrom (ocena tukaj), gre absolutno z mano, ampak z mano potuje tudi Burjois Serum foundation, za dneve, ko ne želim polno prekrivnega pudra. Catrice Camoflauge concealer je zadnje čase edini korektor katerega uporabljam, zato gre tudi ta z mano. Tekoči puder in korektor vedno fiksiram in v ta namen vzamem Maybelline Shine Free loose powder ter MAC blotting powder.

Let’s start with the base. I take two with me, one for the face and one for the eyes. In the summer I usually use The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser and the Essence I ❤ Stage eyeshadow base. Next is liquid foundation. Since I’m totally impressed with the Clinique Beyond perfecting foundation + concealer (review here), I absolutely take it with me, but I take Burjois Serum foundation as well, for days when I don’t want a full coverage foundation. Catrice Camouflage concealer is the only concealer I’ve been using lately, so this one is also coming with. I always set my foundation and concealer and I take Maybelline Shine Free loose powder and MAC blotting powder for that.

travel2Collage

Barve vsekakor ne morejo manjkati in zato bom začela kar s paleto za oči. Paleto senčil izberem glede na to, koliko opcij želim imeti. Največkrat potuje z mano Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette (ocena tukaj), saj mi nudi veliko opcij, ki so vedno dobrodošle. Za obraz bom prav tako vzela Zoevino paleto Coral (ocena tukaj) iz istega razloga, saj imam več opcij. Osvetljevalec je nujno potreben in tokrat sem se odločila za The Balm Manizer sisters paleto (ocena tukaj). Edini bronzer katerega trenutno uporabljam in ga pod nobenim pogojem ne bi pustila doma je Urban Decay Beached bronzer (ocena tukaj). 🙂

Colors definitely can’t be missing and because of that I’ll start with the eyeshadow palette. I choose an eyeshadow palette depending on how many options I like to have. Most of the time I take the Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette (review here), because it offers a lot of options, that are always welcome. For the face I’ll take Zoeva Coral blush palette (review here) for the same reason, more options. Highlighter is extremely necessary and this time I decided for The Balm Manizer sisters palette (review here). The only bronzer I’m using at this time and wouldn’t leave it at home under any circumstances is Urban Decay Beached bronzer (review here).

IMG_7878

Na koncu ne smem nikakor pozabiti še na maskaro, ki je v tem primeru MAC Haute & Naughty lash (ocena tukaj) in barvico za obrvi NYX ter Essence gel za obrvi Make me brow, brez katerega ne morem živeti. Za ustnice ponavadi vzamem kakšno mat obstojno šminko, barvico za ustnice, glos in še kakšno šminko. Tokrat gredo z mano NYX Soft matte lip cream v barvi Morroco, Essence Longlasting barvici za ustnice v barvi 04 Peach Beauty in 05 Lovely Frappuccino (ocena tukaj), Khroma Beauty lip glosa v barvah Raw Honey in Wildflower Honey (ocena tukaj), ter Stila Stay All Day liquid lipstick v odtenku Amalfi, Essence šminka (LE 50’s Girls Reloaded) 02 I’m Sailing in H&M šminka 023 Powder Puff (ocena kmalu).

In the end I can’t forget the mascara, which is in this case MAC Haute & Naughty lash (review here) and an eyebrow pencil from NYX as well as the Essence eyebrow gel Make me brow, that I can’t live without. For the lips I usually take a matte long wearing lipstick, lip liner, gloss and some lipstick. This time I’ll be taking NYX Soft matte lip cream in Morroco, Essence Longlasting lipliners in the shade 04 Peach Beauty and 05 Lovely Frappuccino (review here), Khroma Beauty lip gloss in the colors Raw Honey and Wildflower Honey (review here) as well as Stila Stay All Day liquid lipstick in Amalfi, Essence lipstick (LE 50’s Girls Reloaded) 02 I’m Sailing and H&M lipstick 023 Powder Puff (review soon).

IMG_7881

Seveda ne smemo pozabiti še na čopiče in pa Beauty Blender. Pri čopičih nisem izbirčna, saj jih nimam tako veliko in vedno vzamem vse s seboj. To je vse kar bom tokrat nesla s seboj na dopust. V komentarju spodaj pa mi napišite brez česa vi ne morete na dopust?

Of course I can’t forget my brushes and my Beauty Blender. I’m not picky with the brushes, because I don’t have that many so I always take them all with me. This is what I’ll be taking on vacation this time. What items do you take while vacationing? Leave me a comment.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉
