Too Faced: Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar

IMG_7989

Dolgo sem razmišljala ali naj ocenim to paleto, ker ni novi produkt in marsikomu ne bo zanimiva, ker je ogromno ocen že na spletu, ampak ker je to hitro postala moja najljubša paleta, sem se odločila, da jo vseeno ocenim in delim svojo kratko oceno z vami.

I was thinking weather I should review this palette for some time now because it’s not a new product and many people wouldn’t find it interesting given the fact that there are a lot of reviews of it online already, but because it quickly became my favorite palette I decided to share my short review with you.

Paleta je pakirana v kartonasto škatlo z napisom spredaj ter kratkim opisom in seznamom senčil na zadnji strani. V škatli se prav tako skriva majhna zloženka s tremi primeri make-up izgledov. Sama paleta je v metalni embalaži v obliki čokoladne tablice ter rjave barve. Res čudovita embalaža, še posebej če imate radi čokolado. Še večje presenečenje je vonj in sicer paleta diši po vaniliji/čokoladi, kar je posledica tega, da senčila vsebujejo kakav v prahu. Res čudovito diši in tudi sama dajem paleti to v plus. V notranjosti se skriva manjše ogledalo in pa 16 čudovitih senčil.

The palette is packaged in a cardboard box with inscription on the front and a short description and a list of the eyeshadows on the back. There is also a small leaflet with three make-up looks hiding in the box. The palette itself is in a metal packaging formed as a brown chocolate bar. The packaging is gorgeous, especially if you like chocolate. An even bigger surprise is the smell, namely the palette smells like vanilla/chocolate which is due to the fact that the eyeshadows contain cocoa powder. It really smells great and for me that is a plus. The inside hides a small mirror and 16 beautiful eyeshadows.

Med senčili so tako mat, satenasta ter bleščičasta senčila, vse od kremnih odtenkov do karamelnih, rjavih in celo modro ter rožnato sta notri. Senčila so v veliki večini super pigmentirana ter ravno prav mehka in se lepo blendajo. Predvsem mat senčila pri dotiku s čopičem dvignejo malo prahu, kar pa se ponavadi dogaja pri dobrih mat senčilih. Edino senčilo, ki ni pigmentirano je Pink Sugar, ki da samo bleščice od sebe, ampak tudi to velikokrat uporabim v notrajnem kotičku očesa z vlažnim čopičem. Najljubši senčili sta mi Peanut Butter (uporabljam ga v gubi veke) ter Truffled (vedno ga uporabim v zunanjem kotičku za zatemnitev).

There are matte, satin and shimmery shadows ranging from creamy shades to caramel, browns and there are even a blue and a rosey shadow in there. The eyeshadows have mostly a great pigment and are soft enough and blend easily. Mostly the matte shades kick a little bit of powder up when you put the brush in which usually happens with good matte eyeshadows. The only shade that isn’t pigmented is Pink Sugar which is basically just glitter but I still use it often in the inner corner of the eye with a wet brush. My favorite eyeshadows are Peanut Butter (I use it in the crease) and Truffled (I always use it on the outer corner for deepening).

TooFacedCollage

Meni paleta s to kombinacijo senčil ponuja veliko različnih opcij, tako od svetlih dnevnih do zadimljenih večernih izgledov. Odkar sem jo kupila potujem edino še s to paleto, ne glede na to kam grem. Sploh mi ni žal, da sem si jo kupila in ne znam si predstavljati življenja brez nje (res sem pretirano teatralna). Paleto priporočam predvsem tistim, ki imate radi rjava senčila. Paleto sem kupila v Sephori v Italiji in zanjo odštela 45€, se pa najde tudi na internetu v različnih spletnih trgovinah.

The palette with this combination of eyeshadows gives me a lot of different options, from bright daily to smokey night looks. Since I bought it it’s the only palette I travel with no matter where I go. I don’t regret buying it and I can’t imagine my life without it (I’m such a drama queen). I recommend the palette especially to those that like brown shades. I bought the palette in Sephora in Italy and paid 45€ for it but you can find it online in various online stores as well.

V naslednji objavi vam bom pripravila svoj najljubši make-up izgled z uporabo Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate palete, tukaj pa lahko najdete še veliko več slik in swatchev.

In the next post I will prepare my favorite make-up look using the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate palette and here you can find more pictures and swatches.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

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.

IMG_7238

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.

IMG_7237a

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.

Zoeva: Warm Spectrum

IMG_6842Če ste že brali kaj moj blog, potem veste, da sem zvesta uporabnica Zoeva kozmetike in čopičev. Zame so njihovi produkti med najboljšimi, pa še cene so relativno nizke. Tako sem poleg Zoeva Coral Spectrum palete z rdečili (ocena tukaj), kupila še tole Warm paleto za oči. Izbirala sem med tremi različicami (Warm, Nude in Cool) in izbrala tole, saj se mi je zdelo, da jo bom tudi največ uporabljala.

If you have already read my blog then you know that I’m a loyal user of Zoeva brushes and cosmetics. For me their products are among the best, the prices are also relatively low. So beside the Coral Spectrum blush palette (review here), I also bought the Warm Spectrum eyeshadow palette. I chose between three versions (Warm, Nude and Cool) and chose this one, because I felt that I will use it the most.

IMG_7019

Embalaža je enaka kot pri Coral Spectrum paleti, le večja. Torej mat črna kartonasta paleta, ki pride v rokavu, z bakrenim napisom na paleti. Paleta ne vsebuje ogledala. Narejena je zelo dobro, deluje trpežna.

The packaging is the same as the Coral Spectrum palette, only bigger. So it’s black matte cardboard palette that comes in a sleeve, with a copper lettering. The palette doesn’t contain a mirror. It’s made really well, seems durable.

IMG_7026

Paleta je malenkost večja, kot njihov druge palete, saj ima tudi več senčil. Ta paleta jih ima namreč 15. Vsa senčila so zelo lepo pigmentirana, ravno prav mehka in se čudovito nanašajo ter enostavno blendajo. Paleta vsebuje 10 mat senčil, 2 duochrome in 3 satenasta. Kar mi je všeč pri tej paleti je to, da vsebuje tudi mat črno senčilo, ki po mojem mnenju mora biti v vsaki paleti. Prav tako imamo tudi dovolj prehodnih barv. Satenasta senčila so izredno pigmentirana, pri nanosu imam občutek, kot da so kremna senčila, čeprav niso. Duochrome senčila bi lahko bila po mojem mnenju rahlo bolj pigmentirana, ampak vseeno so zelo lepa in zelo rada jih uprabljam.

The palette is slightly larger then their other palettes as it has more eyeshadows. This palette namely has 15 eyeshadows. All of the shadows are nicely pigmented, soft enough and apply beautifully and blend easily. The palette contains 10 matte eyeshadows, 2 duochrome and 3 satin. What I like about this palette is that it has a matte black shadow, which in my opinion should be in every palette. We also have enough transition shades. The satin shadows are highly pigmented and upon application I feel like they are cream shadows, although they are not. The duochrome shadows could be slightly more pigmented, but I still think they are really nice and I love using them.

IMG_7031

Kot minus naj omenim to, da ima paleta 4 svetle barve, ki so si na oko zelo podobne, čeprav vseeno niso iste. Vsaka paleta, bi morala imeti tudi svetla senčila, eno mat in eno satenasto po mojem mnenju, ampak štiri se mi res zdijo preveč. Raje bi dali vmes še dve barvni senčili, mogoče kakšno rdečkasto-rjavo ali kaj bolj živega. Ta svetla senčila so tudi najbolj pudrasta, kar pa mene načeloma ne moti.

As a minus I want to mention that the palette has 4 light shadows that are really similar to the eye, although not the same. Every palette should have some light shadows, one matte and one satin in my opinion, but I feel that 4 are too much. I would prefer to have two more shadows, maybe a maroon or something brighter. These lighter eyeshadows are also more powdery, but I don’t mind.

Kljub temu se mi zdijo senčila zelo dobra, paleto veliko uporabljam in vedno najdem kakšno novo kombinacijo. En izgled sem že tudi objavila s to paleto in če ga želite videti kliknite tukaj.  Prav tako za več slik in swatchev kliknite tukaj. Paleto sem plačala 35€, naročila sem jo v spletni trgovini Douglas.at in jo prevzela ter plačala v trgovini v Avstriji.

Nevertheless I consider the eyeshadows really good, I use the palette a lot and I always find some new combinations. I have already posted a look using this palette and you can see it here. Also for more pics and swatches click here. I paid 35€ for the palette that I ordered in the Douglas.at online store and I picked it up and paid for it in the store in Austria.

Zoeva: Coral Spectrum

IMG_6997

Že nekaj časa nazaj sem napisala, da se veselim Spectrum kolekcije in februarja sem jo tudi končno dobila. Odločila sem se za paleto rdečil in sicer Coral Spectrum, saj imam rada rdečila v takih odtenkih.

Some time ago I wrote that I was looking forward to the Spectrum collection and in February I finally got it. I decided for the blush palette, the Coral Spectrum, because I love coral blushes.

Paleta je črna mat, na otip zelo podobna NARS embalaži, vendar kartonasta z bronastim (holografskim) napisom, v rokavu, ki je identičen zunanjosti palete. Paleta je zelo dobro narejena in trpežna. V paleti ni ogledala, le 4 x 3,8g produkta.

The palette is matte black, it feels very similar to NARS packaging but made out of cardboard with copper (holographic) inscription, in a sleeve, that is identical to the exterior of the palette. The palette is very well made and durable. There is no mirror in the palette, only 4 x 3,8g of product.

IMG_6849

V paleti so tri mat rdečila in eno satenasto. Rdečila so zelo dobro pigmentirana, tako da priporočam lahko roko pri nanosu. Zelo lepo se razmažejo, blendajo, in niso pudrasta.

The palette includes three matte blushes and one satin. The blushes are very nicely pigmented so I recommend a light hand with the application. They blend really easily and are not powdery.

Barve so zelo različne med seboj. Imamo eno zelo svetlo mat rdečilo, katero trenutno največ uporabljam. Čeprav mogoče na sliki ne izgleda nič ekstra, ampak je super, ker naravno poudari lica. Potem imamo dve rožnati rdečili, ki sta tudi mat, s toplim podtonom. Na koncu pa še edino satenasto, ki je zame pravo koralno rdečilo, rožnato s pridihom breskve in lepim sijajem. Rdečila se mi zdijo primerna za vse in zame je ta paleta edina, ki jo nesem s seboj, ko kam potujem.

The colors are very different from each other. We have one very light matte blush, that I use the most at the time. Although it may not look much on the pictures it’s really great, because it naturally emphasizes the cheeks. Then we have two pink blushes, that are also matte with a warm undertone. In the end we have the only satin blush, for me a true coral blush, pink with a hint of peach and a gorgeous shine. The blushes to me seem appropriate for everyone and for me this is the only palette I take with me when I travel.

IMG_7006

Za paleto sem odštela 18€, kupila sem jo v Douglasu v Avstriji in jo priporočam vsem, saj je res odlična paleta. Za še več slik in swatchev kliknite tukaj.

I paid 18€ for the palette I bought in Douglas in Austria and I recommend it to everyone, because it’s a really great palette. For more pictures and swatches click here.

Lush: Cup O’coffee

IMG_6631

Kje naj začnem? Mogoče pri tem, da je ta maska zamenjala mojo najljubšo svežo masko od Lusha in sicer Brazened Honey, ki je bila z mano in ob meni zadnjih 8 let? Ali naj začnem pri tem, da se je to zgodilo že po prvi uporabi? Ali pa, da sem popolnoma zaljubljena in predana samo še tej maski? Vseeno je kje bom začela, saj je vse to res. 🙂 Na kratko sem jo omenila tudi v moji negi obraza, katero najdete tukaj.

Where do I start? Maybe at the fact that this mask substituted my favorite fresh face mask from Lush, Brazened Honey, which was with me and by me for the last 8 years? Or should I start at the fact, that this happened after the first time I used it? Or maybe that I’m totally in love and dedicated to this mask only? It doesn’t matter where I start, because everything is true. 🙂 I did shortly mention it in my skincare routine post, that you can find here.

IMG_6633

Lush spremljam tedensko in takrat tudi preverim novosti. Takoj, ko sem zagledala to masko na spletni strani, se mi je zdela zanimiva, saj imam zelo rada kavo. Ob naslednjem obisku  trgovine sem jo morala samo povohati in šla je z menoj. Maska namreč diši kot prava turška kava z žličko sladkorja. Če vam kava ne diši, potem predlagam, da se maski izognete. Maska je temno rjave barve z mletimi kavnimi zrni, ki so idealni za piling. Je precej gosta in malenkost lepljiva.

I check the Lush site weekly for any new products. As soon as I saw this mask on the website it seemed very interesting, because I really like coffee. I just had to smell it, the next time I visited the shop, and I bought it. The mask smells like true Turkish coffee with a tea spoon of sugar. If you don’t like the smell of coffee, I advise you avoid it. The mask is dark brown with ground coffee beans which are ideal for exfoliation. It is pretty thick and a bit tacky.

IMG_6635

Nanesem jo na cel obraz, izognem se le predelu pod očmi. Čeprav me ponavadi moti, če se maska ne posuši na mojem obrazu, me pri tej maski to niti najmanj ne moti. Maska se torej ne posuši, ker je gosta pa tudi ne polzi po obrazu, ampak ostane na svojem mestu. Po 15 – 20 minutah začnem z vlažno dlanjo masko odstranjevati in s tem naredim še piling. Zrna so dovolj velika in ravno prav “groba”, da učinkovito opravijo svoje delo. Jaz imam rada bolj grobe pilinge, zato z roko kar precej močno pritisnem ob kožo, da je piling učinek še večji. Če ne marate grobih pilingov pa lahko le narahlo pritisnete ob kožo in tako umijete masko z obraza. Umivalnik je potrebno na koncu umiti, saj se mleta kavna zrna rada naberejo na dnu umivalnika. Vonj se na koži obdrži kar dolgo časa, 3-4 ure približno.

I apply it to the whole face and avoid only the eye area. Although it usually bothers me if the mask doesn’t dry on my face, I really don’t mind with this one. So the mask doesn’t dry, but because it’s really thick it doesn’t slide around the face, it stays where you apply it. After 15 – 20 minutes I start to remove it with a moist palm and I exfoliate while doing so. The grains are big enough and “rough” enough to effectively do their job. I do like more rough exfoliators so I press pretty hard with my palm against my skin, so the exfoliating effect is bigger. If you don’t like rough exfoliators you can press slightly against the skin and wash the mask of the face that way. You do need to wash the washbasin at the end, because the grained coffee beans do tend to gather on the bottom of the washbasin. The scent stays on the skin for quite some time, approximately 3-4 hours.

IMG_6415

Koža je po uporabi mehka, navlažena, nahranjena in sijoča, tako da ponavadi nanesem samo kremo za oči, ostalo pa preskočim ali pa grem čez z losjonom. Jaz sem mojo masko porabila v dobrem mesecu, ena majhna embalaža mi je dovolj za 5-6 krat. Druga me že čaka in veselim se dneva, ko jo bom spet uporabila. Za manjšo masko (100g) boste odšteli 10,50€, za večjo (250g) pa 16,95€.

The skin is really soft, moisturized, nourished and shiny so I usually apply eye cream only and skip the rest or go with a lotion all over. I used my mask in about a month, one small packaging is enough for 5-6 times. The second one is already waiting for me and I look forward to the day that I use it again. You will pay 10,50€ for the smaller mask (100g) and 16,95€ for the bigger one (250g).

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 🙂

P.s. čez vikend bom dodala še par fotografij, saj jih nisem še utegnila narediti.

P.s. I will make a few more photographs over the weekend, because I didn’t have time yet.

Zoeva En Taupe palette

image2Glede na to, da se že tako ali tako navdušujem nad Zoeva čopiči, sem se začela navduševati tudi nad ličili omenjene znamke. In čeprav sem do zdaj vedno iskala izgovore, zakaj določenega  izdelka ne  potrebujem, sem se v to paletko enostavno zaljubila na prvi pogled in decembra sem jo tudi končno dobila. Sama kupujem Zoeva izdelke v Douglasovi spletni trgovini in dam, da dostavijo v  njihovo trgovino, ki se nahaja v nakupovalnem središču v Seiersbergu (Avstrija), kjer  potem tudi  plačam naročeno.  Zame je ta metoda najbolj preprosta in praktična. Seveda pa imate možnost njihove izdelke  naročiti na Zoevini uradni spletni strani. Paleta je stala 17€.

Given the fact that I really like the Zoeva brushes I also started getting enthused about the make-up as well. Until now I have always looked for excuses, why I don’t need a certain product, but I fell in love with this product and got it in December. I buy the Zoeva products in the Douglas online store and I have them deliver in their store which is in the shopping center Seiersberg (Austria), where I pay for it as well. This method is simple and practical for me. Of course you also have the option to buy the products from the Zoeva official website. The palette cost 17€.

image5

Tale paleta se  mi je zdela  primerna za  vsak dan, torej  za  dnevni make-up lahko pa pride v poštev tudi za večernega. Opremljena s to paleto sem šla tudi k sestri čez praznike in izkazala se je kot povsem dovolj, tako za dnevni, nežni, make-up izgled, kot tudi za intenzivnejšega večernega.

I find this palette suitable for everyday, for a daily make-up look, as well as for a night time look. Equipped with this palette I went to my sister over the holidays and it probed itself to be enough, as well for a daily, soft, make-up look, as well as for an intense night look.

image6

Paleta sama je iz kartona, pakirana je v “rokavu”, ki je identičen zunanjosti palete. V notranjosti je plastična folija, ki je namenjena zaščiti senčil. Paleta se dobro zapira in je trdna ter trpežna, tako da me ni strah, da bi se karkoli poškodovalo. Sumljivi so mi edino robovi, ki bi se znali čez čas malo poškodovati a za tako ugodno ceno jim to zlahka odpustim in me niti najmanj ne bi motilo.

The palette itself is made out of cardboard, packaged in a “sleeve”, that is identical to the exterior of the palette. There is a plastic foil that comes in the palette to protect the eyeshadows. The palette closes well and in sturdy and durable, so I’m not afraid that anything would damage. Only the edges of the palette could damage in the future, but for a price this low I easily forgive them this.

image8

Paleta ima 10 senčil in že samo ime pove, da so barve bolj sivkasto rjave s hladnimi podtoni. 4 barve so mat, 1 je mat z bleščicami, 2 sta duochrome in 3 so satenaste. Senčila so ustrezno mehka, solidno pigmentirana, lahko jih uporabljamo suhe ali mokre. Jaz včasih uporabim duochrome barvi mokri, ker je potem sam učinek večji.

The palette has 10 eyeshadows and the name itself says that the colors are grey-brown with cool undertones – taupey. 4 colors are matte, 1 is matte with shimmer, 2 are duochrome and 3 are satin. The eyeshadows are soft, nicely pigmented and we can use them dry or wet. I occasionally use the duochrome shadows wet so the effect is greater.

image9

Barve se lepo in prijetno nanašajo in preprosto se razmazujejo oziroma “blendajo”. Več slik swatchev lahko pogledate tukaj. 🙂

The eyeshadows apply nicely and they blend easily. For more pictures and swatches click here. 🙂

To je moja prva Zoeva paletka in sem popolnoma prepričana, da tudi ne zadnja. Z veseljem namreč že pričakujem novo Zoeva Spectrum kolekcijo in vem, da bo najmanj ena paletka šla z menoj.

This is my first Zoeva palette and I’m absolutely convinced it’s not the last. I’m already expecting the new Zoeva Spectrum collection and I now that at least one palette will come home with me.
