EOS Lip balm

img_8665

To je spet eden takšnih izdelkov, ki sem si ga želela zelo dolgo vendar pa si ga nisem nikoli kupila, dokler ga nisem zagledala v drogeriji v Sloveniji. Seveda sem takoj zagrabila priložnost, da ga preizkusim. Če pa me spremljate že dalj časa pa tudi veste, da sem obsedena z balzami za utnice. 🙂

This is again one of those products I wanted for a long time but never bought it until I saw it in a drugstore in Slovenia. Of course I took that chance to try it out. If you follow me for a longer time then you also know that I’m obsessed with lip balms. 🙂

Embalaža je drugačna, kot smo jih vajeni pri balzamih. Balzam ni v stiku, ampak je v plastičnem jajčku. Odpira se enostavno in tudi tesni dobro. Embalaža je mat in tudi na otip je prijetna ter ne drsi v rokah. Sam balzam je v obliki polovice jajčka. Nanos je enostaven, kljub drugačni obliki. Jajčka je seveda bolj nepraktična kot tipičen stik, saj zavzame malo več prostora a če uporabljete torbico vas to ne bo motilo. Sama balzama ne nosim s seboj, ampak ga uporabljam v glavnem doma.

The packaging is different then what we’re used to with lip balms. The balm is not in a stick but in a plastic egg. It opens easily and closes good. The packaging is matte and nice to the touch as it isn’t slippery in the hands. The balm itself is shaped like half of an egg. The application is easy despite the different shape. The egg is of course more impractical then a typical stick because it takes up more space but if you use a handbag the this will not bother you. I myself don’t carry the balm with me because I use it at home.

Sweet Mint

EOS (Evolution of Smooth) trdi, da so njihovi balzami za ustnice 95% organski, 100% naravni, brez vazelina in parabenov. Vsebujejo vitamin E, karitejevo maslo in jojobino olje, ki poskrbijo za mehke, navlažene in gladke ustnice. Sestavine so res odlične.

EOS (Evolution of Smooth) claims that their lip balms are 95% organic, 100% natural, paraben and petrolatum free. They contain vitamin E, shea butter and jojoba oil that keep your lips soft, moisturized and smooth. The ingredients are really excellent.

Ker je pri nas na voljo kar nekaj različic, sem se odločila poskusiti sladko meto (Sweet Mint) s katero se mi je zdelo, da ne morem zgrešiti. In res je bilo tako. Balzam je v mint embalaži in tudi nasplošno je barva embalaže, jajčka, odvisna od vonja/okusa balzama. Balzam zaradi mete na začetku ustnice rahlo hladi, čez čas pa se le-ta razdiši in ostanejo le negovane ustnice. Ker sem iskreno navdušena nad balzamom sem v Avstriji (izbira tam je namreč večja) kupila še balzam z okusom melone (Honeysuckle Honeydew), ki diši res lepo po meloni. Balzam je lepo mazljiv in tudi prijeten na ustnicah. Na ustnicah se obdrži kar nekaj časa, seveda je vse odvisno od tega koliko pijete in jeste.

Because there are a few different versions in our stores I decided to try Sweet Mint because I felt I can’t go wrong with that one. And so it was. The balm is in a mint packaging and generally the color of the packaging, egg, depends on the scent/flavor of the balm.  The balm cools the lips slightly in the beginning because of the mint but after a while it’s feeling decreases and you’re left with nourished lips. Because I’m honestly impressed with the balm I bought another one in Austria (the choice there is bigger) with the melon flavor (Honeysuckle Honeydew) that smells really nice and like melon. The balm is nicely spreadable and also really pleasant on the lips. It stays quite some time on the lips but that depends on how much you eat and drink.

Honeysuckle Honeydew

Odkar sem kupila tale balzam drugega niti pogledala nisem in če bo tudi pozimi tako uspešno negoval moje ustnice se zna zgoditi, da bo prehitel mojega trenutno najljubšega od Nuxe-a. :O Za balzam boste plačali okoli 6€ za 7g, kupite pa ga lahko v kateremkoli Mullerju ali D&M-u. V Avstriji v Douglasu boste našli malo večjo izbiro okusov, prav tako imajo kreme za roke in telo. Jaz balzam priporočam!

Since I bought this lip balm I haven’t even looked at another one and if it’s going to successfully nourish my lips in the winter time as well then it’s possible that it will substitute my current favorite from Nuxe. You will pay around 6€ for 7g and you can buy it in any Muller or D&M. You will find a bit bigger choice of flavors in Austria in Douglas and they also have hand and body lotions as well. I recommend the lip balm!

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

OGX: Coconut Water weightless hydration oil

IMG_8629

Ponavadi, ko kupim kakšen izdelek impulzivno, nimam sreče in izdelek v veliki večini ni dober. Sedaj pa sem že parkrat imela srečo in nazadnje, ko sem bila v drogeriji (takrat sem tudi kupila L.O.V glos, ki je trenutno moj najljubši – ocena tukaj) sem slučajno zagledala tole. Ker rada poskrbim za svoje lase in ker mi kokos zelo lepo diši, kokosovo olje pa je dobro za lase, sem se odločila poskusiti.

Usually when I buy a product impulsively I don’t have luck with it and it’s usually not good. But lately I’ve been having luck and the last time I visited the drugstore (that’s also when I bought the L.O.V gloss, that is currently my favorite – review here) I accidentally saw this. Because I like to take care of my hair and because I like the scent of coconut, coconut oil is also good for your hair, I decided to try it out.

IMG_8626

Kokosova voda je pakirana v prozorno plastično embalažo s špricalko. Všeč mi je, da je prozorna, da vidim koliko produkta še imam. Špricalka je zelo dobra saj prši izredno fino in tako lepo prekrije lase. Sama kokosova voda je brezbarvna in seveda diši po kokosu. Sam vonj je precej umeten in močan, tako da če vam kokos ne diši, vam tole odsvetujem. Vonj se radiši po par urah, jaz ga drugi dan več sploh ne zaznam. Ker voda vsebuje kokosovo olje deluje kot suho olje, saj se hitro vpije, pusti pa lep lesk na laseh.

The coconut water is packaged in a transparent plastic packaging with a spray. I like that it’s transparent so I can see how much product I have left. The spray works really well because it sprays the water very fine and it coats the hair nicely. The coconut water is colorless and of course it smells like coconut. The scent itself is pretty artificial and strong so if you don’t like the scent of coconut I don’t recommend this to you. The scent fades after a few hours, I don’t smell it the next day at all. Since the water contains coconut oil it acts like dry oil because it absorbs quickly but leaves a nice shine on the hair.

IMG_8627

Organix trdi, da bi naj voda vaše lase navlažila in jim dala lesk s pomočjo kokosove vode, elektrolitov in kančkom kokosovega olja. Kokosova voda in olje sta nekje na sredini med sestavinami kar ni tako slabo. Sama lase umijem, jih posušim malenkost v brisači in po tem, ko jih razčešem jih pošpricam s produktom. Produkt nanesem le na konice oziroma na spodnji del las in lase nato spet razčešem, da ga še bolje razporedim po laseh.

Organix claims that the water is supposed to hydrate the hair and give it shine with the help of coconut water, electrolytes and a hint of coconut oil. The coconut water and oil are somewhere in the middle of the ingredients which is not bad at all. I wash my hair, towel dry it and after combing it I spray the hair with the product. I apply the product on my hair ends only and then comb my hair again to spread it even better.

Ker so moje konice izredno suhe in uničene in tudi izgledajo suhe ter so brez leska, lahko rečem, da tale produkt res naredi moje lase, konice, sijoče in zdrave pri tem pa las ne obteži ali jih naredi mastne. Lasje so sijoči do naslednjega umivanja. Jaz sem s produktom zadovoljna in predvidevam, da ga bom še kupila. Kupila sem ga v Mullerju in za  118ml sem odštela zanj okoli 7€.

Because my hair ends are extremely dry and damaged and they also look really dry and dull I can say that this product does make my hair, my hair ends, shiny and healthy without weighing my hair or making it greasy. The hair stays shiny until the next wash. I’m happy with the product and I assume that I’ll buy it again. I bought it in Muller and paid around 7€ for 118ml.

L.O.V cosmetics: Caring Volume Gloss – Mystic Sand

IMG_8604

Odkar imam dovolj dolge lase, da jih lahko spnem v čop, se spet navdušujem nad lip glossi. Čeprav me ob prvem obisku L.O.V stojala v Mullerju ni navdušilo nič, pa sem si drugič vzela malo več časa in tako tudi našla tale skriti dragulj. L.O.V bi naj bila bolj elegantna sestra Essence in Catrice kozmetike, če ne drugače pa definitivno po izgledu oziroma embalaži.

Since my hair is long enough so I can tie it in a ponytail I’m becoming more and more enthusiastic about lip glosses again. Although the first time I visited the L.O.V stand in Muller nothing really impressed me, I took a bit more time on the second visit and that’s how I found this hidden jewel. L.O.V is supposed to be the more elegant sister of Essence and Catrice cosmetics if not otherwise then definitely in appearance or packaging.

Embalaža je oglata a zaobljena prozorna tuba s tipičnim aplikatorjem  z gobico. Gobica zajame dovolj produkta za cele ustnice in ga tudi lepo razmaže. L.O.V trdi, da daje glos eleganten sijoč finiš in nežno nego v enem s pomočjo Tsubaki olja in vitamina E. Mystic Sand odtenek je rjavkasto  kožne (nude) barve z dodatki rožnate. Ker se zadnje čase navdušujem nad takimi odtenki, je tale bil kot naročen. Je precej pigmentiran, tako da moje ustnice popolnoma prekrije. Je nežnega vonja, ki ga na ustnicah ne zaznam.

The packaging is an angular rounded transparent tube with a typical doe-foot applicator. The sponge captures enough product for the whole lips and also smears is easily. L.O.V states that the gloss gives an elegant shiny finish and gentle care in one with the help of Tsubaki oil and vitamin E. Mystic Sand shade is a brown nude color with hints of rose. Because lately I’ve been really into these kind of shades this one was on cue. It’s pretty pigmented so it covers my lips completely. It has a subtle smell that I can’t smell once on the lips.

lovCollage

Glos je  kremast, izredno udoben in lahek na ustnicah, kar je najbolj pomembno pa je to, da ni lepljiv. Daje izredno lep lesk ustnicam, ki izgledajo skoraj mokre. Ker ni lepljiv seveda tudi ni dolgo obstojen. Na meni je zdržal dobro uro, uro pa pol, v primeru da nisem jedla. Zelo rada ga kombiniram z Essence Longlasting barvico za ustnice v odtenku 05 Lovely Frappuccino. Ustnic mi ne izsuši, ampak jih celo navlaži malenkost.

The gloss is creamy, really comfortable and light on the lips and most importantly it’s not sticky. It gives the lips an extremely beautiful shine that looks almost wet. Because it’s not sticky it of course isn’t long-lasting. It lasted about an good hours, hour and a half on me in case I didn’t eat. I love to combine it with the Essence Longlasting lip liner in the shade 05 Lovely Frappuccino. It doesn’t dry out my lips but it even slightly moisturizes them.

Jaz sem nad glosom in nad odtenkom navdušena, že planiram nakup še kakšnega. L.O.V lahko kupite v večini Mullerjev po Sloveniji, zanj pa boste odšteli 5,99€ kar se mi zdi zelo ugodno za tako kvaliteten glos. Ali so kakšni drugi izdelki od njih, ki mi jih priporočate?

I am extremely impressed by the gloss and the shade and I’m already planning to buy some more. You can buy L.O.V in most Mullers in Slovenia and you’ll pay 5,99€ for it which is a great price for a gloss this great in quality. Are there any other products from them that you recommend?

Clinique: Beyond perfecting foundation + concealer

cliniqueCollage

Moja logika je sledeča: če se že ličim, potem rada prekrijem vse napake. In ker imam zadnje čase grozne težave s kožo, potrebujem nekaj bolj prekrivnega, kot mi je to nudil Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum puder. Tale puder sem videla pri mnogih vlogerkah, ki so ga vse pohvalile in sem se odločila, da ga poskusim.

My logic is as follows: if I’m already putting make-up on, then I want to cover everything. And because I have been having terrible skin problems recently, I need something with more coverage, than my Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation was giving me. I saw this foundation in a lot of beauty vlogs, and because everyone was praising it, I decided to try it out. 

IMG_7296

Puder je v stekleni embalaži z aplikatorjem na gobico, podobno kot so korektorji, le da je tukaj aplikator veliko večji, ter z belim napisom. Meni je embalaža všeč, saj je učinkovita, čeprav imam še vedno najraje embalaže s pumpico. Zanima me kako učinkovita bo ta, ko bom imela še čisto malo produkta notri. A o tem ko pridemo do tega.

The foundation is in a glass container with white lettering and a doe foot applicator, similar like in concealers, just that the applicator here is much bigger. I like the packaging, because it’s effective, although I prefer to have a pump. I do wonder how effective this packaging will be, when there’s almost no product in it. But I’ll worry about that when I’ll need to.

IMG_7298

Imam odtenek je 02 Alabaster, ki je zame malenkost pretemen oziroma pretopel. Izbira odtenkov pri nas, je po mojem mnenju obupna. Tiste, ki imate izredno svetlo kožo boste težko prišle do svojega odtenka. Jaz ga ponavadi pri bradi zmešam z drugim, svetlejšim, pudrom, tako da ni taka razlika med vratom in obrazom. Sama bi potrebovala pol odtenka svetlejši puder z neutralnim podtonom. A tega žal ni, saj svetlejšega od tega pri nas nisem našla, čeprav je na uradni strani veliko več odtenkov na izbiro.

I have the shade 02 Alabaster, which is a bit too dark, warm for me. The shade selection is in my opinion terrible. If you have very light skin, you’ll have a difficult time to match your shade. I usually mix this one with a lighter one at the chin, so there’s not a big difference between the face and neck. I myself would need half a shade lighter foundation with a neutral undertone. But I haven’t found a lighter shade than this one in our stores, although there’s many more shades to pick from on the official website.

Levo/Left: Brez ličil. / No make-up.               Desno/Right: Samo puder. / Foundation only.

Tekoči puder nanesem direktno na obraz z aplikatorjem. Ponavadi aplikator namočim 3x za cel obraz. Res je, da je čisto malo produkta dovolj za cel obraz, ampak jaz pač rada pretiravam. 😉 Puder je izredno prekriven, tako da so tudi najhujši izbruhi prekriti. Prekrivnost lahko povečate z dodatnim nanosom produkta. Produkt je precej gost. Na začetku sem ga razmazovala z Beauty Blenderjem a mi izgled ni bil všeč, zato sem poskusila s čopičem in sedaj ne uporabljam več drugega. Prekrivnost s čopičem je prav tako večja, kot z gobico.

I apply the foundation directly to the face with the applicator. I usually dip the applicator 3x in the foundation, for the whole face. It’s true, that a little goes a long way, but I like to exaggerate. 😉 The foundation has a really great (full) coverage, so even the worst outbreaks are covered. The coverage can be increased by additional application of the product. The product is pretty thick. In the beginning I blended the foundation with the Beauty Blender, but I didn’t like the look, so I tried with a brush and now I don’t use anything else. The coverage with the brush is much better.

Belkast odsev pri fotografiranju z bliskavico. / White cast/flash back when taking a photo with flash.

Puder je opazen na koži. Ni eden tistih, ki se zlijejo v kožo in je, kot da nič nimaš na obrazu a vseeno ne pušča težkega občutka na koži. Jaz ga fiksiram s pudrom v prahu, saj le-ta ni mat. Zdi se mi, da se relativno hitro porablja, ampak spet je to odvisno od tega, koliko ga nanesete. Jaz ga nanesem veliko. Moram opozoriti, da je viden bel odsev, pri slikanju z bliskavico.

The foundation is visible on the skin. It’s not one of those, that blends into the skin and it’s like you have nothing on your face, but it still doesn’t leave a heavy feeling on the skin. I set it with a loose powder, because it’s not fully matte. I do feel that I’m using it up quite fast, but again it depends on how much you apply. I do apply a lot. I have to point out that there is white cast/flash back, when photographing with flash.

IMG_7588

Končni izgled. / Finished look.

S pudrom sem zadovoljna, najbolj zaradi prekrivnosti in obstojnosti, saj se ne razmazuje ali bledi. Veliko bolj zadovoljna bi bila, če bi lahko dobila kakšen svetlejši odtenek. Sama sem ga kupila v Mullerju v Avstriji in zadnj odštela okoli 32€. Pri nas v Mullerju boste zanj odštele 38€, v Douglasu (Avstrija) 34€, v Travel Free shopu pa le 27€. Razlike v ceni so ogromne in če le imate možnost, priporočam nakup v Avstriji oziroma v TF shopu.

I am satisfied with the foundation, mostly because of the coverage and the longevity, because it doesn’t smudge or fade. I would be a lot happier though if I could get a lighter shade. I bought it in Muller in Austria and paid around 32€ for it. In Slovenia in Muller you will pay 38€, in Douglas (Austria) 34€, in Travel Free shop only 27€. Price differences are huge and if you have the chance, I recommend buying it in Austria or in the TF shop.

BEBE Young care: Soft shower cream

IMG_7442

Gela za tuširanje še nisem ocenila, ampak dejstvo je, da ga seveda uporabljam, vsak dan. 🙂 Odločila sem se, da bom začela kar s tem od Bebe, saj je prvi, ki me je po dolgem času presenetil. Gel je v bistvu krema za tuširanje za suho kožo.

I haven’t reviewed a shower gel yet, but it’s a fact that I of course use one, every day. 🙂 I decided to start with the one from Bebe, because it’s the first, after a while, that really surprised me. The gel is actually a shower cream for dry skin.

Sama imam precej suho in občutljivo kožo, predvsem na nogah imam občasno tudi luskasto kožo. Večina gelov za tuširanje mi kožo izsuši, zato sem navdušena, če najdem gel, kateri mi kože ne izsuši. In tako je bilo tudi s tem.

I have pretty dry and sensitive skin, especially on my legs I occasionally get flaky skin. Most shower gels dry out my skin and that’s why I’m really excited if I find a gel, that doesn’t dry out my skin. And so it was with this one.

gelcollage

Gel je v beli plastenki z rožnatim pokrovom na poklop in z rožnatim napisom. Sam gel je mlečno bel. Gel uporabljam z gobico za tuširanje (na sliki) saj se tako najlepše speni. Pena je res bogata in kremasta, kar mi je še najbolj všeč. Vonj je nežen, ne premočan. Na koži se obdrži kako uro. Gel dobro umije, se lepo spere in ne pušča filma na koži.

The gel comes in a white bottle with a pink lid and pink lettering. The gel itself is milky white. I use the gel with a mesh loofah (on the pic), because it foams the best this way. The foam is really rich and creamy, which I like the best. The scent is delicate, not too strong. It stays on the skin for about an hour. It washes nicely, rinses off easily and doesn’t leave a film on the skin.

Jaz rada menjam gele, kreme, za tuširanje, zato ga verjetno ne bom kupila do zime. Sicer pa ga priporočam. Cene ne poznam, saj je bil darilo, mislim pa, da ga lahko kupite v Mullerju.

I like to change my shower gels, creams, so I probably won’t buy it until winter. Otherwise, I do recommend it. I don’t know the price, because it was a gift, but I think that you can buy it in Muller.

Essence longlasting lipliner

Na te dolgo obstojne svinčnike sem naletela čisto slučajno. Ogledovala sem si izdelke od Essenca in ker še nisem našla barvic za ustnice, ki bi mi bile všeč, sem začela te preizkušati v trgovini. Zdele so se mi mehke in mazljive in odločila sem se kupiti eno, da jo preizkusim tudi na ustnicah. Najprej sem kupila rdečo, 01 ready for red. Iskreno me že dolgo ni produkt za ustnice tako navdušil, kot me je ta. Zaljubila sem se.

I came across these longlasting lipliners by accident. I was looking at the Essence products and because I haven’t found a lipliner that I liked, I started trying them in the store. They seemed very soft and applied easily so I decided to try one on my lips as well. First I bought a red one, 01 ready for red. Honestly it’s been a long time since a lip product impressed me this much. I fell in love.

IMG_6368

Essence trdi, da je ta svinčnik dolgo obstojen, ima super mehko teksturo in intenzivne barve. Naj začnem s teksturo. Ta je res mehka in zelo lepo drsi čez ustnice. Svinčnik oziroma mina, saj je svinčnik mehanski, kar pomeni da šiljenje ni potrebno, je dovolj tanka, da lahko ustnice natančno očrtamo. V zakup je treba vzeti to, da se svinčnik malo hitreje porabi, ravno zaradi tega, ker je mehak, kar me nikakor ne moti, saj raje vidim, da se barva lepo nanese. Svinčnik je dolgo obstojen. Jaz sem ga imela na ustnicah 5 ur in čeprav je malo zbledel, sem vmes pila in jedla. Svinčnik zelo enakomerno bledi, tako da tudi po 5ih urah izgleda lepo na ustnicah. Čeprav piše, da lahko izbirate med devetimi barvami, sem v Mullerju našla samo 8 barv, kupila pa sem jih 7, saj najsvetlejše nisem kupila. Barve so res intenzivne. Izbirate lahko vse od nevtralnih odtenkov, rožnatih, rdečih in tudi vijoličnih. Finiš ni popolnoma mat, ampak je delno mat. Embalaža je plastična in take barve, kot je barvica notri.

Essence claims that this liner is longlasting, has a super soft texture and intensive colors. Let me start with the texture. It’s really soft and glides easily over the lips. The liner or mine, the liner is retractable which means that sharpening is not necessary, is thin enough so you can outline the lips accurately. Because the liner is soft you have to take into consideration that you will use it faster which doesn’t bother me, because I rather see that the color applies easy. The lipliner is longlasting. I had it on for about 5 hours and although it did fade away a bit, I ate and drank in that time. It fades evenly so even after 5 hours it looks really nice on the lips. It says you can choose between nine colors I found only eight in Muller and bought 7, because I didn’t buy the lightest one. The colors are intensive. You can choose between nudes, pinks, reds and even plums. The finish is not completely matte but demi-matte. The packaging is plastick and the same color as the liner inside.

IMG_6364

Boljše je, da so ustnice zdrave, ko nanašamo barvico, čeprav ravno zaradi svoje mehkobe dopuščajo tudi majhno razpokanost (govorim iz izkušenj). Ustnic mi ne izsuši in tudi občutek na ustnicah je prijeten. Cena teh svinčnikov je smešno nizka, okoli 1,30€ v Mullerju. Moja najljubša barva je 07 plum cake in verjamem, da bo z mano še dolgo. 🙂 Bolj obsežne swatche si lahko ogledate tukaj.

It is better to have healthy lips when applying the lipliner although because the liner is soft it allows the lips to be slightly dry and chapped (talking from experinece). It doesn’t dry out my lips and it is comfortable to wear. The price is really low, around 1,30€ in Muller. My favorite color is 07 plum cake and I believe it will stay with me for a long time. 🙂 If you want to see extensive swatches click here.
