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.

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.

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.

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.
