Makeup Geek: Unexpected in Vintage

IMG_7237

Kot že veste, sem velika nadvušenka nad Makeup Geek senčili, saj so izredno kvalitetna, cena pa je sprejemljiva, moja zbirka pa se počasi veča. 🙂 Tokrat sem se odločila oceniti in opisati Unexpected in Vintage.

As you already know, I’m a big fan of Makeup Geek eyeshadows, because they’re great quality, the price is acceptable and my collection is slowly increasing. 🙂 This time I decided to review Unexpected and Vintage.

Makeup Geek trdi, da je Unexpected mat svetlo rožnato rjavo senčilo. Dokler nisem prebrala opisa na njihovi strani, sem vedno govorila, da je to senčilo svetlo lila z dodatkom sive, ampak sedaj vidim, da ima res tople podtone. Senčilo sem kupila, saj sem potrebovala eno svetlo senčilo s pridihom vijolične (rožnate, lila) za prehodno senčilo. Senčilo torej vedno uporabljam kot prehodno barvo, nikoli ga še nisem uporabila na veki. Senčilo je ravno prav mehko, pigmentirano (kolikor je pač lahko, saj je svetlo), se lepo nanaša in blenda.

Makeup Geek states that Unexpected is a matte pale pink brown eyeshadow. Until I read the description on their page, I always said that this is a light lilac with a hint of gray, but now I see that it really has warm undertones. I bought this eyeshadow, because I needed a light eyeshadow with a hint of purple (pink, lilac) for a transitional shade. I always use this shadow as a transition color, I never used it on the lid. The eyeshadow is soft enough, pigmented (as it can be, because it’s light), applies and blends nicely.

Vintage je po mojem mnenju starejša sestra od Unexpected in ravno zaradi tega ju ponavadi tudi uporabljam skupaj. Makeup geek trdi, da je to srednje rjavo mat senčilo z vijoličnim (slezenastim) podtonom. Senčilo ponavadi uporabim za poglobitev barve v zunanjem kotičku očesa ali pod spodnjo veko. Občasno ga nanesem tudi čez celo veko, ko želim zadimljene oči malo drugače. Senčilo je ravno prav mehko, pigmentirano in se lepo nanaša in blenda.

Vintage is in my opinion the older sister from Unexpected and that’s why I usually use them together. Makeup Geek states that it’s a medium brown with mauve undertones and a matte finish. I usually use the eyeshadow to deepen the outer corner of the eye or on the lower lid. Occasionally I apply it across the entire lid, when I want a smokey eye with a twist. The eyeshadow is soft enough, pigmented, applies and blends nicely.

Če ste brali prejšnje objave o Makeup Geek senčilih, potem veste, da senčila ne pridejo v svoji embalaži, ampak boste potrebovale kakšno magnetno paleto, kjer jih boste hranili. Cena enega senčila je 6,30€ na Beauty Bay strani, kjer sem jih tudi sama kupila. Makeup Geek je prav tako prišel ven z 18 novimi senčili, ki so tudi že na voljo na Beauty Bay strani.

If you read my previous Makeup Geek eyeshadow posts, then you know, that the eyeshadows don’t come in a packaging, just a pan, so you will need a magnetic palette to store them in. The price of one eyeshadow is 6,30€ on Beauty Bay, where I bought them. Makeup Geek also came out with 18 new eyeshadows, that are already available on the Beauty Bay site.

Makeup Geek: Barcelona Beach in Latte

Kako leto sem že gledala tuje blogerke, kako so hvalile in veselo uporabljale Makeup Geek senčila. Na internetu sem iskala možnosti kako priti do njih in potem sem en dan dobila e-pošto od Beauty Bay strani in na moje veselje so dobili njihova senčila. Takoj sem oddala prvo naročilo štirih senčil in med njimi sta bili tudi Barcelona Beach in Latte. Senčki sem kupila z namenom, da jih bom uporabljala kot prehodno barvo v gubi veke.

I was watching foreign bloggers for about a year happily using and praising the Makeup Geek eyeshadows. I was looking for ways to get them and then one day I got an e-mail from Beauty Bay and I was happy to see that they got their eyeshadows. I immediately ordered four eyeshadows and among them were Barcelona Beach and Latte. I bought the eyeshadows with the intention to use them as transition colors in my crease.

Barvi sta sicer na prvi pogled izredno podobni, ampak Latte je malo bolj temna in s toplimi podtoni, Barcelona Beach pa ima hladne podtone. Torej v mojih očeh popolnoma različni senčki. 🙂

The colors are really similar at first glance, but Latte is deeper and with warm undertones, Barcelona Beach has cool undertones. So in my eyes totally different eyeshadows. 🙂

Makeup Geek Barcelona Beach senčko opisuje kot srednje peščeno mat barvo in mislim, da je dobro opisana. Latte je opisana kot srednje rjava mat barva. Latte ima po mojem mnenju kar nekaj rdečega pigmenta not, kar daje senčki toploto in globino. Obe senčki sta mi super všeč, uporabljam ju vedno ko si naličim oči, Barcelono Beach, ko imam bolj “hladne” sence na očeh, Latte pa ko uporabim “tople” sence. Senčki občasno tudi pomešam in ju tako uporabim. Barcelona Beach je rahlo bolj mehka in kremasta kot Latte a kljub temu sta obe senčki izredno kvalitetni in preprosti za uporabo. Barcelona Beach ima malo sijaja, čeprav je v osnovi mat barva.

Makeup Geek describes Barcelona Beach as medium sand shade with a matte finish and I think that’s a good description. Latte is described as matte medium brown. Latte has in my opinion some red pigments which gives the shadow warmth and depth. I love both of the eyeshadows and I use them every time I put make-up on my eyes, Barcelona Beach when I have “cool” shadows on my eyes and Latte when I use “warm” eyeshadows. Occasionally I mix them and use them that way. Barcelona Beach is a bit more soft and creamy then Latte but nevertheless both eyeshadows are great quality and easy to use. Barcelona Beach has a bit of shine to it although it’s still a matte color.

Embalaža je minimalistična, kar pomeni da dobite samo senčko v metalni embalaži, ki pride v majhni kartonasti kuverti. Sama s tem nisem imela težav, ker imam Z paleto že zelo dolgo, tako da sem senčke dala tja, ampak imejte v mislih, da boste morale kupiti še neko paleto, kjer boste sence hranile. Prav tako za Makeup Geek ne potrebujete magnetnih nalepk, saj se same “primejo” za paleto. Za senčko sem dala 6,60€ kar se mi za tako kvaliteto ne zdi veliko, saj lahko kupite eno po eno senčko in si sestavite svojo idealno paleto. Senčke in Z paleto lahko kupite na Beauty Bayu. Obsežne swatche si lahko ogledate tukaj. Kmalu bom ocenila in poslikala tudi druge barve. Imate ve kakšne Makeup Geek senčke, katere priporočate ali si jih želite? Pustite mi komentar spodaj.

The packaging is minimalistic which means it comes in a metal pan and the pan in a small cardboard envelope. I didn’t have any problems with that because I own a Z palette already so I put the eyeshadows in there, but have in mind that you will have to buy some kind of palette to store them in. You don’t need magnet stickers for the Makeup Geek eyeshadows because the pans “stick” to the palette on their own. I paid 6,60€ for one which is OK for a shadow in this quality and you can buy one by one and assemble your perfect palette. You can buy the eyeshadows and the Z palette on Beauty Bay.
