Makeup Geek: Rebel in Toxic

img_9201

Ker vidim, da imate radi, ko ocenjujem Makeup Geek senčila, sta tukaj spet dve novi, ki ju še nisem uspela oceniti. Tokrat sta na vrsti Rebel in Toxic.

Because I can see that you like my Makeup Geek reviews I reviewed two new eyeshadows that I didn’t have the time to post until now. It’s time for Rebel and Toxic.

Makeup Geek trdi, da je Rebel globoko umazano vijolično senčilo z zlatim odsevom in shimmer finišem. Recimo, da se strinjam z vsem edino z delom “globoko”. 🙂 Senčilo je ravno prav kremasto vendar pa ni najbolj pigmentirano oziroma barva sama je takšna, da mogoče ne deluje najbolj pigmentirano. Nanaša in blenda se lepo. Tudi zlati odsev je lepo viden. Meni osebno barva ni najbolj všeč in zato sem tudi senčilo uporabila le dvakrat do sedaj. Uporabila sem ga že cez celo veko in v notranjem kotičku očesa. To je verjetno tudi edino senčilo od Makeup Geek-a, ki mi do sedaj ni bilo všeč.

Makeup Geek claims that Rebel is a deep dusty purple with a gold overlay and a shimmery finish. Let’s say that I agree with everything except with the “deep” part. 🙂 The eyeshadow is creamy but not very pigmented or the color itself is such that it doesn’t look pigmented. It applies and blends nicely. The gold reflect is also nicely seen. I myself don’t like the color very much and that’s also why I used the eyeshadow only twice until now. I used it all over the eyelid as well as only in the inner corner of the eye. This is also the only eyeshadow from Makeup Geek that I don’t like so far.

Toxic je senčilo, ki mi je veliko bolj všeč. Makeup Geek trdi, da je Toxic globoko melancana vijolično senčilo z shimmer finišem. Toxic mi deluje podobno kot Rebel in sicer izgleda mi kot temno vijolična podlaga s toplim podtonom in globoko vijoličnim odsevom. Senčilo je ravno prav mehko, se ne drobi in se lepo blenda. Jaz ga velikokrat uporabim na sredini veke za poživitev kakšne druge mat vijolične senčke. Meni je senčilo zelo všeč in ga priporočam.

Toxic is an eyeshadow that I like much more. Makeup Geek claims that it’s a deep eggplant purple with a shimmery finish. Toxic is similar to Rebel in a way that it looks like a deep purple base with a warm undertone and a deep purple reflect. The eyeshadow is soft enough, doesn’t crumble and blends nicely. I often use it on the center of the eyelid over a purple eyeshadow to pick it up a bit. I really like the eyeshadow and I recommend it.

Če ste brali prejšnje objave o Makeup Geek senčilih, potem veste, da senčila ne pridejo v svoji embalaži, ampak boste potrebovale magnetno paleto, kjer jih boste hranili. Cena enega senčila je 7,40€ na Beauty Bay strani, kjer sem jih tudi sama kupila (ceno so dvignili iz 6,30€).  Prav tako ne pozabite, da vas v naslednji objavi čaka make-up izgled z uporabo enega od dveh senčil.

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 7,40€ on Beauty Bay, where I bought them (they increased the price from 6,30€). Also don’t forget that there will be a make-up look using one of these shades in the next blog post.

Makeup Geek: Grandstand

img_8723

Čeprav Makeup Geek senčila ocenjujem ponavadi v paru, pa je to edino “foiled” senčilo, ki ga imam in zato ga ocenjujem posamezno, saj je tudi cena višja, kot pri navadnih Makeup Geek senčilih.

Although I usually review Makeup Geek eyeshadows in pairs, this is the only foiled eyeshadow that I have so I’m reviewing it by itself and also the price is higher than usual with the “normal” Makeup Geek eyeshadows.

Makeup Geek trdi, da so njihova “foiled” senčila nekaj posebnega, saj so hibrid med kremnimi senčili in senčili v prahu/kamnu. Ponujajo neverjetno pigmentacijo v kombinaciji s kovinskim finišem. Senčilo je res izredno kremasto a hkrati ni kremno. Že na otip je drugačno. Meni je ta formula res odlična in vredna svoje cene.

Makeup Geek claims that their foiled eyeshadows are something special because they are a hybrid between cream and powder eyeshadows. They give incredible pigmentation in combination with a metallic finish. The eyeshadow is really very creamy but not a cream. Even at the touch it’s different. This formula is really excellent and worth the price in my opinion.

img_8721

Samo senčilo Grandstand je srednje rožnato zlato z malenkost sivkasto-vijoličnega podtona in kovinskim finišem seveda. Sama bi senčilo opisala kot rožnato zlato. Senčilo torej je izredno pigmentirano, najboljše se nanaša s ploščatim čopičem ali celo prstom in se tudi lepo razmazuje. Senčilo je obstojno cel dan in se kljub kremasti teksturi ne poseda v gubo veke (vedno uporabljam bazo za senčila). Sama ga uporabljam za večerne izglede in ponavadi čez celo veko ali na sredini veke za nekaj več.

The eyeshadow Grandstand is a medium rose gold with a hint of taupe undertones and of course a foiled finish. I would describe the color as rose gold. The eyeshadow is extremely pigmented and applies best with a flat brush or even with a finger and also blends nicely. It lasts all day and doesn’t set in the crease although it’s so creamy (I always use an eyeshadow base). I use it mostly for evening looks and usually over the whole eyelid or on the center of the lid for something more.

Tako kot ostala, tudi to senčilo ni v svoji embalaži, ampak boste potrebovale magnetno paleto, za hranjenje. Cena enega senčila je 10€ na Beauty Bay strani, kjer sem ga tudi sama kupila. Makeup Geek je pripravil nova senčila, ki so že na voljo v tujini, tokrat tudi ta s “foiled” finišem. Se že veselim novega nakupa. 🙂  Prav tako ne pozabite, da vas v petek čaka make-up izgled z uporabo tega senčila.

Like the other ones, this eyeshadow doesn’t come in its own packaging so you’ll need a magnet palette to store them in. The price of one eyeshadow is 10€ on the Beauty Bay site where I bought it. Makeup Geek has developed new eyeshadows that are already available abroad, this time also foiled eyeshadows. I look forward to purchasing some new shades. 🙂 Also don’t forget that there will be a makeup look on Friday with this eyeshadow.

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?

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.

udvice3Collage

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.

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.

IMG_7995

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.

Bitten & Burlesque make-up look

IMG_8225

Kot obljubljeno sem vam danes pripravila make-up izgled z uporabo Makeup Geek senčil Bitten in Burlesque, ki sem ju ocenila v prejšnji objavi. Prav tako sem vam izdala, da bom naredila zadimljen videz oči na moj način. To je prav tako moj prvi bolj dramatičen izgled, ki sem vam ga pripravila. Upam, da vam bo všeč.

As promised I prepared a make-up look for you today using Makeup Geek eyeshadows Bitten and Burlesque that I reviewed in the previous post. I also revealed that I would be doing a smokey eye look my way. This is also my first more dramatic look that I prepared for you. I hope you’ll like it.

IMG_8198

Kot omenjeno sem uporabila senčili Bitten in Burlesque, ampak ker to seveda ni bilo dovolj, sem si pomagala tudi z drugimi Makeup Geek senčili. Najprej sem oko pripravila z bazo. Prvo senčilo, ki sem ga uporabila je bilo Latte, ki mi je služilo kot prehodna barva (1.), prav tako pa sem ga potegnila nižje, v gubo veke. To sem ponovila 2-3x. Nato sem nadaljevala z rahlo ožjim blending čopičem in nanesla Bitten v samo gubo veke (2.). Pazila sem, da nisem šla previsoko. Tudi to sem ponovila parkrat. Ko sta bili senčili lepo zblendani, razmazani, sem nadaljevala.

As mentioned I used the Bitten and Burlesque eyeshadows but because that  wasn’t enough I helped myself with other Makeup Geek shadows. First I prepared my eyelid with a base. The first eyeshadow I used was Latte that served as an transitional shade (1.) but I also pulled it lower in the eye crease. I repeated this step 2-3x. Then I continued with a more narrow blending brush and applied Bitten only in the crease (2.). I was careful not to go too high. I also repeated this a few times. When the eyeshadows were nicely blended I continued.

IMG_8196

Ker sem si želela malo več dimenzije, sem v zunanji kotiček očesa (3.) s ploščatim čopičem nanesla Americano in ga s čopičem za blendanje razmazala. To sem ponovila dvakrat. Nadaljevala sem s ploščatim čopičem, s katerim sem nanesla Burlesque čez celo veko a le do očesne gube. S tanjšim čopičem za bledanje in z Bitten senčilom sem popravila prehod med senčili. Nanesla sem črni gel eyeliner za še bolj dramatičen izgled.

Because I wanted a little more dimension I applied Americano with a flat brush on my outer eye corner (3.) and blended it with a blending brush. I repeated this step twice. I continued with a flat brush that I used to apply Burlesque over my whole eyelid but only up to the crease. With a more narrow blending brush and Bitten eyeshadow I went over the crease one more time to blend it together. I applied black gel eyeliner for an even more dramatic look.

Look3Collage

Na spodnjo veko sem ob trepalnicah nanesla Bitten in senčilo malo zblendala s senčilom Latte. Nanesla sem maskaro na spodnje in zgornje trepalnice. Da sem oko malo odprla sem v notranje kotičke nanesla pikico senčila Shimma Shimma in na notranji rob spodnje veke Stila barvico za oči v odtenku Topaz (bež).

I applied Bitten on the lower eyelid by the lashes and blended the eyeshadow with a little Latte shadow. I applied mascara to the lower and upper eyelashes. To open the eye a little I put a dot of Shimma Shimma in the inner corner of the eye and Stila Topaz (beige) eyeliner on my waterline.

IMG_8215

Ker sem oči močno naličila, sem na obrazu uporabila bolj nežne, nevtralne odtenke. Za piko na i bi morala uporabiti še umetne trepalnice a ker sem hitela na piknik (tako je, takšna sem šla popoldan na piknik, ljudje so verjetno mislili, da sem zmešana :D) sem jih izpustila. Seznam ostalih izdelkov, ki sem jih uporabila je spodaj. Vam je bil ta look všeč?

Because my eyes were so dark I used more delicate, neutral shades on the face. False eyelashes would be the cherry on the top but because I was rushing to go on a picnic (yes, I went on a picnic in the middle of the day looking like this, people probably thought I was crazy :D) I skipped that. List of the other products I used is down below. Did you like this look?

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Seznam ličil/Make-up list: obraz/face (Rimmel Stay Matte liquid mousse foundation, ABH Banana & Vanilla powder, Maybeline Shine Free Loose powder, Urban Decay Beached Bronzer Bronzed, Essence Pure Nude highlighter, Zoeva Coral blush palette, NYX Auto Eyebrow pencil, Essence Make me brow), ustnice/lips (Essence Longlasting lipliner Lovely Frappuccino, YSL Rouge Volupte 2).

Makeup Geek: Bitten in Burlesque

IMG_8137

Nadaljujem delo z ocenjevanjem Makeup Geek senčil in danes sta na vrsti Bitten in Burlesque, ki sta bolj temni, bolj skrivnostni senčili, ampak prav tako eni izmed mojih najljubših senčil.

I’m continuing with the evaluation of the Makeup Geek eyeshadows and today it’s time for Bitten and Burlesque, which are darker, more mysterious shades but also one of my favorites.

Makeup Geek trdi, da je Bitten temno rdeče-rjavo senčilo z mat finišem. S tem se popolnoma strinjam. Bitten je po mojem mnenju najboljše Makeup Geek senčilo, ki ga imam. Senčilo je izredno pigmentirano, zelo lepo se nanaša na veko in blenda, ni pudrasto, ampak ravno prav kremasto. Čudovito. 🙂 Bitten sem kupila za bolj drzne make-up izglede. Največkrat ga uporabljam v zunanjem kotičku očesa ali v gubi veke. Bitten je tisto senčilo, ki ga enostavno morate imeti.

IMG_8139

Makeup Geek claims that Bitten is a deep maroon eyeshadow with a matte finish. I totally agree. Bitten is in my opinion the best Makeup Geek eyeshadow that I own. The shadow is extremely pigmented, it applies and blends nicely, it’s not powdery but creamy enough. Amazing. 🙂 I bought Bitten for more daring make-up looks. I usually use it in the outer eye corner or in the crease. Bitten is that one shade that you simply must have.

Burlesque sem prvič videla, ko sem gledala Kathleen Lights kako ga uporablja v kombinaciji z Bitten senčilom in takoj sem vedela, da ga potrebujem, čeprav je samo senčilo izredno podobno Bitten senčilu. Makeup Geek trdi, da je Burlesque bordo senčilo s toplimi podtoni in z metalnim finišem. Metalen finiš ni tako izrazit, da pa vseeno lep sijaj. Burlesque je bolj temno oziroma bolj globoko od Bitten in zato tudi bolj primerno za čez celo veko. Burlesque uporabljam vedno za zadimljen videz, ko želim nekaj drugačnega.

IMG_8146

The first time I saw Burlesque was when I was watching Kathleen Light use it in combination with Bitten and I immediately knew that I need it although the shade itself was very similar to Bitten. Makeup Geek claims that Burlesque is a burgundy eyeshadow with warm undertones and a metallic finish. The metallic finish is not that noticeable but it does give a nice shine. Burlesque is deeper than Bitten and that’s why it’s suitable for all over the eyelid. I always use Burlesque for a smokey look when I want something different.

Če ste brali prejšnje objave o Makeup Geek senčilih, potem veste, da senčila ne pridejo v svoji embalaži, ampak boste potrebovale magnetno paleto, kjer jih boste hranili. Cena enega senčila je 6,30€ na Beauty Bay strani, kjer sem jih tudi sama kupila. Makeup Geek pripravlja spet nova senčila, ki bodo na voljo konec julija. Se že veselim. 🙂  Prav tako ne pozabite, da vas v petek čaka make-up izgled z uporabo teh dveh senčil. Verjetno se vam že svita kaj vam bom pripravila, kajne?

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 is again preparing new eyeshadows that will be available in the end of July. I can’t wait. 🙂 Also don’t forget that there will be a make-up look using these two shades on Friday. You probably already suspect what I’m preparing, right?

Benefit: Cheekathon

IMG_8001

Od Benefita imam že par izdelkov, tudi rdečila. Eno izmed mojih ljubših rdečil je prav od Benefita in sicer Bella Bamba, ki je vzeta iz prodaje, jaz pa sem že skoraj pri koncu. 😦 Prav tako imam Coralisto, ki pa mi je padla na tla in se razbila. Čeprav sem jo popravila, pa se vseeno drobi kar precej in jo nerada uporabljam. Kar se kvalitete tiče pa sta ti dve rdečili top, zato sem bila tudi tako navdušena nad to paleto.

I have a few products from Benefit, blushes also. One of my favorite blushes is from Benefit and it’s the Bella Bamba that was discontinued and I almost used it up. 😦 I also have Coralista, that fell on the floor and broke. Although I did fix it it still crumbles a lot so I don’t like using it. As far as the quality goes these two blushes are amazing and that’s why I was so excited about this palette.

Paleta vsebuje pet full size rdečil: Dandelion, Hoola, Rockateur, Dallas in Coralisto. Embalaža je kartonasta, vendar zelo dobro izdelana. Paleta je rožnate barve z zlatimi flekci in izredno všečno slikico na prednji strani. Z notranje strani imam ogledalo dobre velikosti, plastično zaščito (ki sem jo takoj vrgla), majhno krtačko in 5 rdečil. Notri je bila prav tako majhna knjigica z navodili in triki. Paleta bi lahko bila rahlo ožja in tako bolj primerna za potovanja a se tudi s to znajdem.

The palette contains five full size blushes: Dandelion, Hoola, Rockateur, Dallas and Coralista. The packaging is cardboard but very well made. The palette is pink with gold flecks and a really cute picture on the front. There’s a mirror on the inside that is a good size, a plastic cover (that I threw right away), small brush and 5 blushes. There was also a small book with tips and tricks. The palette could be a bit thinner so it would be better for traveling but I can work with this.

Če preidem na sama rdečila. Dandelion in Hoola sta mat, Dallas in Coralista imata sijaj, Rockateur pa ima mikro bleščice. Rdečila so zelo kvalitetna, ravno prav mehka, dobro pigmentirana in se lepo nanašajo in zabrišejo. Mat rdečili sta rahlo bolj pudrasti a mene iskreno to ne moti. Čopič je OK, nič posebnega, sama ga uporabljam za konturiranje s Hoola bronzerjem in se dobro obnese.

Let me get to the blushes. Dandelion and Hoola are matte, Dallas and Coralista have a sheen, Rockateur has shimmer. The blushes are very good quality, soft enough, nicely pigmented and apply and blend easily. The matte blushes are a bit more powdery but I honestly don’t mind. The brush is OK, nothing special, I use it for contouring with the Hoola bronzer and it works well.

Dandelion je nežno rožnato rdečilo, ki po mojem mnenju paše na vsak ten. Hoola je kultni mat bronzer z neutralnim podtonom, tako da je super za konturiranje. Rockateur je prav tako nežno rožnato rdečilo z dodatkom slezenaste ter  z zlatimi mikro bleščicami, ki dajo licu lep sijaj. Dallas je rožnato rjavo rdečilo s toplim podtonom, tako da je super za punce s temnejšim tenom oziroma če ga nanesemo previdno je lahko lepo nevtralno rdečilo. Zadnje je Coralista, ki je najbolj znano rdečilo od Benefita in tudi najbolj univerzalno po mojem mnenju, saj je čudovita barva breskve z lepim sijajem.

Dandelion is a soft rose blush that in my opinion work on everyone. Hoola is a cult matte bronzer with neutral undertones so it’s great for contouring. Rockateur is also a soft rose blush with a hint of mauve and gold shimmer that gives the cheeks a nice shine. Dallas is a pinkish brown blush with warm undertones so it’s great for girls with a darker skin tone or if you use a light hand it’s a great neutral blush. The last is Coralista that’s also the most famous blush from Benefit and also the most universal in my opinion because it’s a gorgeous peach with a nice shine.

Če pogledam na paleto kot na celoto, bi lahko rekla, če ne bi bila obsedena z ličili, da je to edina paleta za obraz, ki jo potrebujem. A bodimo realni, verjetno bom kaj hitro našla nekaj kar bom spet nujno potrebovala. 😀 Kljub temu sem s paleto izredno zadovoljna. Paleto sem kupila v Sephori v Italiji in za njo odštela 60€, kar je super, saj je drugače eno posamezno rdečilo od Benefita okoli 33€. Paleta se še dobi v Sephori in na določenih spletnih straneh, tako da če vas zanima potem pohitite, saj ne bo dolgo v prodaji. Za več slik in swatchev pa klik tukaj.

If I look at the palette as a whole I could say, if I wasn’t obsessed with make-up, that this is the only face palette I need. But let’s be real I’ll probably find something soon that I’ll need. 😀 Nevertheless, I’m extremely satisfied with the palette. I bought it in Sephora in Italy and paid 60€ which is great because otherwise a single blush from Benefit goes for around 33€. You can still get the palette in Sephora and on certain websites so if you’re interested hurry up because it is a limited edition item. For more pictures and swatches click here.

Makeup Geek: Mango Tango in Sorbet

IMG_7817

Ker sem dejansko v zaostanku z ocenjevanjem Makeup Geek senčil, sem se odločila zavihati rokave in oceniti novi senčili. Tokrat sem se tudi odločila, da ko bom ocenjevala senčila, bom v naslednji objavi tudi pokazala, kako sem ta ista senčila uporabila. Tako da v petek pričakujte še makeup izgled s temi senčili.

Because I’m actually behind on reviewing the Makeup Geek eyeshadows I decided to roll up my sleeves and review two new eyeshadows. I also decided to show you how I use those eyeshadows in a post following this one. So on Friday you can expect a make-up look using these shades.

Tokrat sta na vrsti senčili, ki sta bolj živih barv, ravno pravi za pomlad in poletje. Čeprav me je takšnih barv včasih malo strah, pa jih vseeno rada uporabljam predvsem spomladi in poleti.

The eyeshadows that I’m reviewing today are more vivid and are just right for spring and summer. Although I’m a bit scared of these colors, I still like to use them, especially in the spring and summer.

Makeup Geek trdi, da je Mango Tango rožnato senčilo z dodatkom oranžne oziroma breskve ter z zlatimi bleščicami. To lahko tudi sama potrdim. Res je lepa mešanica obeh barv in odlično izgleda čez celo veko. Čeprav senčilo vsebuje zlate bleščice pa so te tako redke, da pri nanosu niso vidne, zato bi jaz prej rekla, da je senčilo bolj ali manj mat. Senčilo je malenkost bolj trdo, kot sem vajena pri njihovih senčilih a z malo truda tudi lepo pigmentirano. Jaz ga velikokrat uporabljam mokrega, saj je tako barva globja in lepša.

IMG_7822

Makeup Geek states, that Mango Tango is a peachy pink with flecks of gold. I can confirm that. It’s really a beautiful mixture of both colors and it looks great over the whole eyelid. Although the eyeshadow contains glitter (fleck of gold), it’s not really visible upon application, so I would rather say that the eyeshadow is more or less matte. The shadow is more stiff than I’m used to with their eyeshadows, but with a little effort nicely pigmented. I often use it wet, because the color is much deeper and more beautiful that way.

Sorbet sem kupila za prehodno barvo, predvsem v kombinaciji z Mango Tango. Makeup Geek trdi, da je Sorbet pastelno melona rožnato senčilo z mat finišem. Senčilo je svetlo rožnato s toplim podtonom oziroma z dodatkom breskve. Senčilo vedno uporabljam kot prehodno senčilo v gubi veke, v kombinaciji z Mango Tango je res čudovito. Senčilo je ravno prav mehko in pigmentirano, se lepo nanaša in blenda.

I bought Sorbet as a transition color, especially in combination with Mango Tango. Makeup Geek states that Sorbet is a pastel melon pink eyeshadow with a matte finish. The eyeshadow is a light pink color with warm undertones or with a hint of peach. I always use the eyeshadow as a transitional shade in the crease, in combination with Mango Tango it’s really gorgeous. The eyeshadow is soft enough and pigmented, it applies and blends easily.

Če ste brali prejšnje objave o Makeup Geek senčilih, potem veste, da senčila ne pridejo v svoji embalaži, ampak boste potrebovale 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 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: 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.
