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.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Makeup Geek: Shimma Shimma in Prom Night

O mojem navdušenju nad Makeup Geek senčkami sem pisala že tukaj. Kot sem že takrat omenila, imam trenutno sedem njihovih senčil in tokrat vam predstavljam Shimma Shimma in Prom Night.

I wrote about my enthusiasm about Makeup Geek eyeshadows here. As I said earlier I have seven eyeshadows from Makeup Geek and this time I’m introducing Shimma Shimma and Prom Night.

Shimma Shimma je moja (zaenkrat) najljubša senčka, saj jo uporabim vsakič, ko se naličim. Makeup Geek trdi, da je senčilo šampanjec barve z metalnim finišem. Senčilo je v osnovi bež z rahlo toplim podtonom in res čudovitim sijajem. Jaz senčilo uporabljam za osvetlitev pod obrvmi in v notranjem kotičku očesa. Senčilo je mehko, super pigmentirano in z lahkoto se razmazuje. Po kvaliteti in barvi je zame to res top senčka.

Shimma Shimma is my (for now) favorite eyeshadow, because I use it every time when I wear make-up. Makeup Geek claims that this is a metallic champagne eyeshadow. The shadow is basically beige with a slight warm undertone and beautiful shine. I use it to highlight under my eyebrows and in my inner eye corner. The eyeshadow is soft, pigmented and blends easily. By quality and color this is my top eyeshadow.

Prom night je vijolična osnova s pridihom sive in svetlečim finišem. Prom Night je senčilo, katero lahko nanesem čez celo veko, pod obrv Shimma Shimma in dobim super izgled za dan ali večer. Všeč mi je, ker ne potrebujem veliko truda, da oči izgledajo, kot da sem porabila eno uro samo za oči. Senčilo je mehko, pigmentirano in se lepo razmazuje.

Prom night is a purple base with a hint of gray and a shimmer finish. Prom Night is an eyeshadow I can apply on the whole lid, Shimma Shimma under my eyebrow and I get a super look for day or night time. I like it when I don’t need a lot of effort to make the eyes look like I used and hour on them. The eyeshadow is soft, pigmented and blends easily.

Če ste brale prvo objavo 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.

If you read my first Makeup Geek eyeshadow post then you know that the eyeshadows don’t come in a packaging, but just a pan, so you will need a magnetic palette to store them in. The price of one eyeshadow is 6,30€ on Beuty Bay, where I bought them.
