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.

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.

IMG_7823

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.

Lush: Sex bomb

IMG_7773

Enostavno ne morem da ne bi ocenjevala teh Lushevih kopalnih bombic, saj je velika večina res čudovitih. To je bila še ena izmed tistih, ki so v prodaji že nekaj časa, a je nikoli nisem uspela poskusit. Tokrat sem se ob obisku trgovine hitro odločila za njo in jo takoj še isti večer poskusila.

I just have to review these bath bombs from Lush, because the majority of them are really wonderful. This has been one of those, that have been on sale for some time now, but I never had a chance to try it out. This time, while visiting the store, I quickly decided to buy it and try it the same night.

IMG_7776

Bombica je rožnata in vijolična z vrtnico (?) na vrhu. Prevladuje rožnata barva. Bombica diši nežno, cvetlično s pridihom sladkosti. Vonj je nežen in pomirja. Prevladujeta muškat in jasmin. Ko bombico spustim v vodo se vonj po kopalnici razširi zelo hitro. Ker je bombica v glavnem rožnata je tudi voda rožnata. Ko se polovica ali malenkost več bombice stopi, na površje priplava cvet. Cvet je mehak in rahlo sluzast. Čez čas cvet razpade in po vodi plavajo cvetni listi.

The bomb is pink and purple with a rose (?) on the top. The pink color dominates.  The bomb has a delicate, flowery scent with a hint of sweetness. The scent is gentle and soothing. Muscat and jasmine dominate. When I release the bomb in the water the scent spreads quickly throughout the bathroom. Because the bomb is mainly pink, the water turns pink as well. When half or slightly more of the bomb melts, a flower comes up to the water surface. The flower is soft and slightly slimy. After a while the flower falls apart and there are flower petals left floating on the surface.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, natrijev seskvikarbonat, parfum, sojino mleko, sintetični mošus, absolut jasmina, olje muškatne kadulje, olja ylang-ylanga, titanov dioksid, limonene, linalool, barvilo 18050, barvilo 61585, cvet iz riževega papirja.

Kopanje v kopeli je sproščujoče, cvetni listi pa dajejo občutek razkošja. Edino kar mi je žal, je da ni več cvetov v bombici. Cvetni listi čez čas razpadejo saj so riževega papirja, tako da v banji po kopanju ni ostankov. Bombica prav tako ne pušča na banji madežev, kar je meni zelo pomembno. 🙂 Koža je po kopanju dišeča in ni izsušena, kar je vedno plus. Za kopalno bombico boste odšteli 5,50€.

Bathing is relaxing, the flower petals give a sense of luxury. The only thing I regret is that there aren’t more flowers in the bomb. The petals break down after a while because they are made out of rice paper, so there is no residue after bathing. The bomb doesn’t leave any stains on the tub either, which is very important to me. 🙂 The skin is left fragrant and not dry, which is always a plus. You will pay 5,50€ for the bath bomb.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 😉

Lush: The Comforter bubble bar

Čeprav sem popolnoma predana Lushevim kopalnim bombicam, pa si za spremembo privoščim občasno tudi penečo kopel. Tako sem si tudi tokrat privoščila The Comforter penečo kopel. Kopel je rožnato bela s spiralnim vzorcem, nepravilne ploščate ovalne oblike.

Although I’m fully committed to Lush bath bombs, I do occasionally use a bubble bar. So this time I used The Comforter bubble bar. The bar is pink and white with a spiral pattern and an irregular flat oval shape.

IMG_7436

Vonj je precej saden z dodatki citrusov. Meni diši izredno lepo, poživljajoče. Lush pravi, da je glavna nota črni ribez in s tem se popolnoma strinjam. Meni je vonj izredno všeč.

The scent is quite fruity with an addition of citruses. To me it smells very nice, invigorating. Lush claims that the main note is blackcurrant and I totally agree. I really like the scent.

Lusheve peneče kopeli je potrebno drobiti v roki pod tekočo vodo, da se najbolje spenijo. Večji kos kopeli uporabite, bolj močan je vonj, bolj obarvana je voda in tudi več pene je. Jaz ponavadi uporabim polovico in mi je ravno dovolj. Lahko pa seveda uporabite tudi manj, več ne priporočam. Voda se je tokrat obarvala nežno rožnato.

To get a good foam you have to crumble the bubble bar under running water. The bigger the chunk you use, the stronger the scent, the water gets more colorful and there’s more foam. I usually use half of the bar and that’s enough for me. You can use less, but I don’t recommend using more. The water colored to a soft pink.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, vinski kamen, natrijev lavrat sulfat, lavril betain, parfum, titanov dioksid, kokamid DEA, olje bergamotke, absolut črnega ribeza, cipresovo olje, limonene, linalool, barvilo 45410, barvilo 17200.

Kože mi ni izsušila, kar me ne preseneča, saj mi Lusheve kopeli načeloma nikoli ne izsušijo kože. Kopel prav tako vsebuje malenkost olja in sicer olje bergamotke ter cipresovo olje. Koža je le narahlo dišala po kopeli, vonj pa se je obdržal kakšni dve uri. Jaz jo priporočam. 🙂

It didn’t dry out my skin, which doesn’t surprise me, because baths from Lush usually never do. The bath also contains a little bit of oil, namely the bergamot oil and the cypress oil. The skin was slightly scented after the bath, the scent lingered for about two hours. I recommend it. 🙂

Enobarven rožnat make-up

IMG_7133

Tokrat sem se odločila ustvariti enobarven make-up izgled v rožnati barvi. To pomeni da sem rožnato uporabila na očeh, licih in ustnicah. Na koncu sem bila izredno zadovoljna z izgledom. 😉

This time I decided to create a monochromatic make-up look in rose/pink color. This means that I used rose/pink on my eyes, cheeks and lips. In the end I was really satisfied with the look. 😉

IMG_7116

Za oči sem uporabila paleto, ki je pristala tudi na seznamu mojih najljubših izdelkov v letu 2015 (seznam najdete tukaj), Urban Decay Naked 3 paleto. Tako kot prejšnjič sem obkrožila senčila, ki sem jih uporabila, številke pa označujejo vrstni red po katerem sem jih nanašala. Preden sem začela s senčili sem uporabila bazo za oči. Prav tako sem ob očesu nalepila lepilni trak, da sem dobila ostro in ravno linijo. Za lažjo predstavo prilagam sliko.

For my eyes I used a palette that was on my most favorite products in 2015 list (you can find it here), Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I circled the eyeshadows I used, the numbers indicate the order in which I applied them. Before I started with the shadows I used an eye base. I also applied some scotch tape next to my eye to get a sharp and straight line. I’m adding a picture for better understanding.

Potem sem začela s prvo, prehodno barvo, ki sem jo nanesla v in nad gubo očesa, od zunanjega do notranjega kotička očesa. To sem ponovila dvakrat oziroma dokler barva ni bilo lepo razporejena. Nato sem nanesla drugo barvo samo v gubo veke, da sem le-to malo poglobila. To sem prav tako ponavljala, dokler mi ni bil izgled všeč. Sledilo je tretje, najtemnejše senčilo, ki sem ga s ploščatim čopičem nanesla v zunanji trikotnik in potem s čopičem za blendanje vse skupaj razmazala (pazila sem, da nisem šla nad gubo veke). To sem ponavljala do željene intenzitete.

Then I started with the first, transition color, that I applied in and above my crease, from the outer to the inner corner of the eye. I repeated this twice or until the eyeshadow was nicely blended. Then came the second shadow just in the eye crease, to deepen it. I also repeated this until I liked how it looked. This was followed by the third, the deepest, eyeshadow which I applied on my outer triangle and blended with a blending brush (I was careful not to go above the crease). I repeated until the desired intensity.

rsz_img_7100x

Sledilo je četrto senčilo, ki pa ima goste bleščice in se suho ne nanese lepo, zato to senčilo vedno uporabim mokro. Tako je intenzivnost večja in senčilo se lepše oprime veke. To nanesem na celo veko, ne da bi šla nad gubo veke. Ker sem želela sredino veke še bolj osvetlili sem na sredino s prstom potapkala malo zlatega senčila. Ta korak lahko načeloma tudi preskočite. 🙂 Na koncu sem še nanesla svetlo mat senčilo pod obrvjo. Odstranim lepilni trak.

Next was the fourth eyeshadow that has a lot of glitter and it doesn’t apply nicely dry, so I always use this one wet. The intensity is greater and the shadow sticks to the eyelid better this way. I apply it to the whole lid, but not above the crease. Because I wanted to illuminate the center of the eyelid even more I patted some gold shadow in the center using my finger. This step may in principle be skipped. 🙂 In the end I applied the light matte shadow under the brow bone. I remove the tape.

PicMonkey Collage4

Ker sta bili dve senčili z bleščicami sem predel pod očmi pobrisala s kozmetičnim robcem, da sem odstranila bleščice, ki so padle na obraz. Nato sem nadaljevala s tekočim pudrom, korektorjem, pudrom v prahu. Nato sem nanesla še bronzer, Catrice Luminizing bronzer in rdečilo, ki je bilo v tem primeru tudi rožnato in sicer Benefit Bella Bamba. Za osvetlitev obraza sem uporabila The Balm The Manizer Sisters paleto, ki sem jo ocenila tukaj. Uredila sem še obrvi kot ponavadi.

Because two of the eyeshadows had glitter, I used a cosmetics wipe to clean the glitter fallout off my face. Then I continued with the foundation, concealer, loose powder. I applied the bronzer, Catrice Luminizing bronzer and the blush, which in this case was also pink, namely Benefit Bella Bamba. To highlight my face I used The Balm The Manizer Sisters palette, that I reviewed here. I did my eyebrows as usual.

IMG_7092

Nato sem se vrnila na oči in na spodnjo veko nanesla sedmo senčilo, v notrnji kotiček spodnje veke pa malo zadnjega, osmega senčila. Nanesla sem seveda še maskaro oziroma Stila duo, ki sem ga ocenila tukaj. Na ustnice sem nanesla Essence longlasting lipliner v odtenku Sweetheart, ki je res odlična barvica za ustnice. Tudi to sem ocenila in oceno najdete tukaj.

I then returned to my eyes and applied the seventh shadow to my lower lid, in the inner corner I put a bit of the eighth eyeshadow. Of course I also applied some mascara, I used the Stila duo, that I reviewed here. On my lips I applied the Essence Longlasting lipliner in the shade Sweetheart, which is really a great lipliner. I also reviewed this one and you can find the review here.

In to je moj enobarven make-up izgled. Kako se vam zdi? Vam je všeč? 🙂

And this is my monochromatic make-up look. What do you think? Do you like it? 🙂

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.

The Balm: The Manizer Sisters

IMG_6963

Osvetljevanje obraza je na vrhuncu popularnosti. Sama se osvetljevanja obraza poslužujem že nekaj časa, ampak trenutno sem v fazi, ko najprej pogledam kakšen osvetljevalec kdo ima. 😉 Na listi želja sem dolgo imela The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer osvetljevalec, ki je prodajni hit pri tej znamki. Ko pa sem zagledala ta trio, sem vedela da bo moj. 🙂

Highlighting the face is at the peak of its popularity. I have been highlighting my face for quite some time now, but now I’m in the phase that the first thing I do, is look which highlighter someone has. 🙂 I had Mary-Lou Manizer from The Balm, the top selling item from the brand, on my wish list for a while now. So when I saw this trio, I knew it would be mine. 🙂

IMG_6962

The Balm ima že leta v prodaji tri sestre Manizer in sicer Mary-Lou, Cindy-Lou in Betty-Lou Manizer, ki so lani stopile skupaj v paleto. Če kupite en osvetljevalec dobite 8,5g produkta, tukaj dobite 3g vsakega produkta, kar tudi ni malo.

The Balm has sold the three Manizer sisters for years, namely Mary-Lou, Cindy-Lou and Betty-Lou Manizer, that came together in a palette last year. If you buy one highlighter by itself, you get 8,5g of product, here you get 3g of each, which is quite enough.

IMG_6956

Meni je paleta super všeč. Že sam izgled palete je unikaten, zanimiv, lep. Paleta je kartonasta, zelo dobro narejena, pokrov je na magnet, tako da se dobro zapre. Notri je majhno ogledalo, ki je dovolj veliko za popravke čez dan. Paleta pride v kartonastem rokavu, katerega lahko zvržete, saj je podoba na rokavu enaka podobi na paleti.

I like this palette a lot. The palette itself is unique, exciting, beautiful. The palette is made of cardboard, very well made, it has a magnet lid, so it closes nicely. Inside is a small mirror, which is big enough for touch-ups during the day. The palette comes in a cardboard sleeve, that you can throw away, because the image on the sleeve is the same as the one on the palette.

Gremo kar na sam produkt. Naj pripomnim, da lahko osvetljevalce uporabite tudi kot senčila. Vsi trije osvetljevalci so izredno kremasti, ravno prav mehki, niso pudrasti, produkt se zelo lepo nanaša. Prav tako se z lahkoto razmažejo, zblendajo, in so dolgo obstojni.

Let’s go to the product. I have to state that you can use the highlighters as eyeshadows as well. All three highlighters are extremely creamy, soft enough, not powdery, the product applies very nicely. They also blend really easy and are long-wearing.

PicMonkey Collage

Mary-Lou je bež osvetljevalec z zlatim sijajem. Predstavljajte si barvo šampanjca. Tega tudi največ uporabljam, ko želim, da je le-ta bolj izrazit. Uporabljam ga za osvetlitev v notranjem kotičku očesa, kot tudi po celem obrazu, saj je enostavno čudovit. Cindy-Lou je v barvi breskve z rožnatim podtonom in rožnatim sijajem. Ta ima med sestrami tudi najbolj nežen sijaj. Jaz ga uporabljam čez rdečilo, da mu dam piko na i. 😉 Betty-Lou je rjave barve, s toplimi podtoni in zlatim sijajem. Tega bomo dame, s svetlo poltjo, težko uporabile kot osvetljevalec, zato ga jaz uporabim kot rdečilo oziroma čez bronzer. Poleti, ko bom bolj zagorela bom uporabljala samo to na licih.

Mary-Lou is a beige highlighter with a golden sheen. Imagine the color of champagne. I use this one the most, when I want it to be more explicit. I use it to lighten my inner eye corner and the whole face, because it’s just gorgeous.  Cindy-Lou is peachy-pink with a pink sheen. This one has the softest shine between the sisters. I use it over the blush, to top it off. 😉 Betty-Lou is brown with warm undertones and a golden sheen. Fair skin ladies won’t be able to use this as a highlighter, so I use it as a blush or over a bronzer. In the summer, when I’m more tanned, I will use it on the cheeks.

Manizer sestre so res odličen produkt primeren za vsakogar. Jaz sem paleto kupila na Cloud10Beauty strani in zanjo odštela 28€. Ali ste že poskusile katero od Manizer sester? Kako se vam zdi produkt? Pustite mi komentar spodaj. 😉

The Manizer sisters are really a great product suitable for anyone. I bought this palette on Cloud10Beauty and paid 28€ for it. Did you try any of the Manizer sisters? Did you like the product? Leave me a comment below. 😉

Lush: Melting Marshmallow Moment

Lush Melting Marshmallow Moment (MMM) je luksuzna olja kopel. MMM sem izbrala na podlagi vonja, saj me spominja na njihov gel za kopanje Snow Fairy oziroma če ne poznate tega gela na Bazooko (žvečilni gumi). Torej pričakujete lahko sladek, bombončkast vonj.

Lush Melting Marshmallow Moment (MMM) is a luxury oil bath. I picked MMM because the scent reminded me of their shower gel Snow Fairy or if you don’t know the gel then Bazooka (chewing gum). So you can expect a sweet, candy scent.

IMG_6668

MMM je oblikovana v ploščati valj, ki je na eni strani rumen, na drugi strani pa rožnat s srebrnimi bleščicami. Oljna kopel ni velika kot kopalna bombica, ampak se vseeno dalj časa topi v vodi. Kopalna bombica se razgradi v minuti do dveh, medtem ko oljna kopel potrebuje dobrih šest ali sedem minut. Razlika med njima je tudi ta, da čeprav je barvna. vode ne obarva, ampak ji minimalno spremeni odtenek. Razlika skoraj ni bila opazna. Torej ni barvne in zanimive eksplozije, kot je pri kopalni bombici.

MMM is in a flat cylinder form, which is yellow on one and pink with silver glitter on the other side. The oil bath is not as big as the bath bomb, however it does take more time to dissolve in water. The bath bomb dissolves in a minute or two while the oil bath needs good six or seven minutes. The difference between them is also that, although the oil bath is colored, it doesn’t color the water, just changes the tint slightly. The difference was hardly noticeable. So there isn’t any colorful explosion as it is with the bath bomb.

Glede na to, da je oljna kopel, je na vodi tanka oljnata plast. Koža je po kopanju izredno mehka in navlažena, uporaba losjona ali kreme ni potrebna. Tudi vonj je dovolj intenziven, da je koža po kopanju do dve uri odišavljena. Kad je potrebno po kopanju umiti, saj se na dnu poležejo bleščice pa tudi olje lahko ostane na kadi.

Due to the fact, that this is an oil bath, there is a thin oily layer on the water. The skin is really soft and moisturized after bathing, the use of body lotion or body butter is not necessary. The scent is also intense enough so the skin smells like the bath for up to two hours. You do need to wash the bathtub after, because the glitter can gather on the bottom of it and also oil can remain on the bathtub.

Meni je oljna kopel všeč in si jo bom še privoščila, saj je občutek na koži enkraten, ne bo pa nadomestila mojih kopalnih bombic, ki bodo pri meni ostale na prvem mestu. Čeprav sam video ni tako zanimiv, kot pri kopalnih bombicah, pa sem ga vseeno posnela, da dobite občutek kako to izgleda v praksi.

I do like the oil bath and I will buy it again, because the feeling on the skin is excellent, but it will not substitute my bath bombs, which are staying in first place. Although the video is not as interesting as the bath bomb videos are, I still made it so you can get a sense on how it looks in practice.

Melvita: 3 roses nectar lip balm

Kot pravi odvisnik, post o moji “odvisnosti” najdete tukaj, sem nedolgo nazaj kupila tale balzam za ustnice, ker sem ga enostavno morala poskusiti. 🙂 Na splošno, ko se gre za Melvitino kozmetiko, sem ali zaljubljena v izdelek ali ga niti malo ne maram. Na srečo sem v večino izdelkov, ki sem jih poskusila popolnoma zaljubljena. To je prvi izdelek, ki mi je sicer zelo všeč, nisem pa (še) zaljubljena.

Like a true addict, you can find the post about my “addiction” here, I bought, not so long ago, this lip balm, because I just had to try it. 🙂 In general, when it comes to Melvita cosmetics, I either love or hate the product. Luckily I love the majority of the products that I tried. This is the first product I really like, but I’m not (yet) in love.

Balzam za ustnice je v belem lončku z rožnato pisavo in z zlatim pokrovom na navoj. Embalaža mi je všeč in zdi se mi kvalitetna. Balzam je nežno rožnate barve, kar se mi zdi edino prav, saj že samo ime nakazuje na to. Tudi vonj je nežen in blag, po vrtnicah. Čeprav vonja po vrtnicah v kozmetiki ne maram preveč, mi ta prav diši.

The balm comes in a white jar with pink lettering and a screw on gold lid. I like the packaging and it looks to be good quality. The balm is iridescent shade of pink, which seems only right, as the name suggests it. Even the scent is delicate, it smells like roses. Although I don’t like the scent of roses in cosmetics too much, I really like this one.

Melvita trdi, da balzam navlaži, zgladi in zmehča kožo ustnic. Navlaži in zmehča jo res, ne morem pa trditi, da jo zgladi. Tekstura je trda a se ob stiku, zaradi toplote prsta, zmehča. Jaz jo ponavadi zajamem kar z nohtom, nanesem in razmažem po ustnicah. Balzam ni lepljiv, zato tudi ne dolgo obstojen. Kljub temu, če ne pijem ali jem, ostane na ustnicah do dve uri. Ustnic ne obarva, ampak jim da zdrav sijaj. Sestavine so zelo dobre, saj je na prvih dveh mestih karitejevo maslo in kokosovo olje, vsebuje pa še druga olja in izvlečke vrtnic. Meni je zelo všeč, ampak mojega medenega balzama od Nuxa še ni prehitel. Vseeno ga zelo rada uporabljam, saj sem se že naveličala vonja medu.

Melvita claims, that the balm moisturizes, smoothes and softens the lips. It does moisturize and soften the lips, but I can’t say that it smoothes them. The texture is firm, but the warmth of the finger softens it. I usually scoop it out with my fingernail, apply and smear it all over the lips. The balm is not sticky/tacky so therefore not long-lasting. Nevertheless if I don’t drink or eat, it does stay on the lips up to two hours. It doesn’t color the lips, it just gives them a healthy shine. The ingredients are very good, shea butter and coconut oil on the first two spots and it contains other oils and rose extracts. I like it a lot, but my Nuxe honey balm is still better. However I really like using it, because I’m tired of the honey scent.

Balzam torej priporočam, saj je kvaliteten in dobro opravi svoje delo. Zanj sem odštela 12,70€, kupila sem ga v Müllerju.

I do recommend the lip balm, because it’s great quality and it does the job. I paid 12,70€ and I bought it in Müller.
