ABH: Pro Series Powder Contour Banana in Vanilla

ABHCollage

Anastasia Beverly Hills mi je bila vedno zanimiva in vsakič, ko sem gledala punce kako so uporabljale njene palete za konturiranje, sem si želela, da bi si jo tudi jaz lahko kupila. Čez čas me je minil nakup palete, še vedno pa sem si želela dober banana puder v kamnu ali prahu za fiksiranje korektorja. Na mojo srečo je, po neuspešnem iskanju, Beauty Bay dobil posamezne pudre v kamnu za ponovno polnitev palet.

I was always interested in Anastasia Beverly Hills and every time I watched girls use her contour palette I always wished I could buy it as well. After a while I lost interest in the palette but I still wanted a good banana powder, compact or loose, for setting my concealer. Luckily for me after an unsuccessful search, Beauty Bay got the individual refill powders for the palettes.

Odločila sem se kupiti kar dve barvi, saj me je skrbelo, da bi bila Banana preveč rumena zame, ki imam precej bolj nevtralno hladen podton. Tako sem poleg Banane kupila še Vanilijo. Ker so to posamezni pudri, ki so za ponovno polnitev palete, nimajo svoje embalaže, ampak so pakirani le v kartonasti škatlici in potrebujete paleto v katero jih boste shranili. Sama ju hranim v Z paleti, ki je super priročna.

I decided to buy two shades because I was worried that Banana would be too yellow for me because I have a more neutral cool undertone. So in addition to Banana I bought Vanilla as well. Because these are individual refill powders they come just in a pan packaged in a cardboard box and you need a palette to store them in. I store them in a Z palette which is super convenient.

Levo/Left: Vanilla, Desno/Right: Banana

Prvi šok, ki sem ga doživela, je bila velikost samih pudrov. Pri naročanju namreč nisem bila pozorna na težo produkta, tako da sem pričakovala standardnih 5-6g. Dobila sem seveda veliko manj in sicer 3g. Še dobro, da pudra uporabljam samo pod očmi, saj ju tako ne porabim veliko.

The first shock that I experienced was the size of the powders. While ordering them I wasn’t paying attention to the weight of the product so I expected a standard 5-6g. I of course got a lot less, namely 3g. It’s good that I only use the powder under my eyes so I don’t use a lot.

Levo/Left: Samo puder in korektor. / Just foundation and concealer.                           Desno/Right: Pod levim očesom Banana, pod desnim očesom Vanilla. / Under the left eye Banana, under the right eye Vanilla.

Banana je svetlo rumen mat puder, Vanilla pa svetlo krem, delno mat. Oba pudra sta ravno prav mehka, da se lepo oprimeta ščetin na čopiču. Pudra sta prav tako precej pigmentirana, Banana bolj kot Vanilla, tako da dodatno prekrijeta moje temne podočnjake. Ker se mi je Banana zdel prerumen sem ju začela mešati in tako dobila perfektni odtenek. Pudra dobro fiksirata moj korektor in tudi predel pod očmi lepo osvetlita.

Banana is a pale matte yellow, Vanilla is a pale demi matte cream. Both of the powders are soft enough so they stick to the brush bristles. The powders are quite pigmented as well, Banana more than Vanilla so they additionally cover my dark under eye circles. Because I thought that Banana was too yellow I started mixing them together and that’s how I got the perfect shade. The powders set my concealer really well and also brighten the under eye area.

Za 3g produkta sem na Beauty Bayu odštela 16,50€ kar se mi zdi veliko za sicer dober puder. Velik plus je, da je izbor odtenkov širok, tako da lahko vsaka najde nekaj zase in si načeloma kupi le enega, namesto cele palete. Jaz ju bom z veseljem porabila, nisem pa prepričana, da ju bom spet kupila. Bolj me mika Laura Mercier Brightening powder za predel pod očmi. Kaj vi uporabljate za fiksiranje korektorja? Priporočate kaj?

I paid 16,50€ on Beauty Bay for 3g of product and I find that to be too much for a powder that is good. The big plus is that there is a wide selection of shades so everyone can find something for themselves and generally buy only one instead of the whole palette. I will happily use them but I’m not sure I’ll buy them again. I’m more temped by the Laura Mercier Brightening powder for the under eye area. What do you use for setting you concealer? Do you recommend anything?

Max Factor: Pan Stik

Pan stick

Tale puder v stiku sem uporabljala že v srednji šoli. Ker nisem imela nikoli večjih težav z aknami sem puder nanesla kvečjemu pod očmi in okoli nosu. Ker se je barva pudra zlila z mojo kožo, sem to tudi brez težav naredila. Ne spomnim se kdaj sem ga nehala uporabljati, ampak mislim, da je minilo najmanj 10 let odkar sem ga nazadnje uporabila. Sedaj ko so pudri v stiku vedno bolj popularni, sem se odločila, da ga bom ponovno preizkusila.

I used this stick foundation in high school. Since I never had major problems with acne I applied the foundation under my eyes and around the nose only. I did that without a problem, because the color of the foundation blended with my skin. I don’t remember when I stopped using it, but I think that it has been at least 10 years since I last used it. Now that stick foundations are more and more popular I decided to try it again.

Kot sem že omenila, je puder v stiku, z embalažo na navoj, ki dobro dela. Puder nanesem direktno na kožo in ga ponavadi razmažem s čopičem, saj je tako prekrivnost boljša. Puder je izredno kremast, tako da se enostavno razmaže. Je dobro srednje prekriven, s ponovnim nanosom na določena mesta, ki to potrebujejo, lahko prekrivnost povečam. Jaz ga imam v odtenku 12 – true beige.

The foundation is in a stick form, as I already mentioned, with a twist up packaging, that works fine. I apply the foundation directly to the skin and I usually blend it out with a brush, because the coverage is better that way. The foundation is extremely creamy so it blends easily. It has a good medium coverage which I can build up in places where needed. I have it in the shade 12 – true beige.

Puder, tako kot vsakega drugega, fiksiram s pudrom v prahu. Ker je tako kremast, se mi koža precej hitro zmasti. Po eni uri se že svetim okoli nosu in po čelu. Za dame, ki imate mastno kožo bo to še večji problem, tako da ga odsvetujem, za tiste s suho kožo pa bo odličen. Puder je obstojen v primeru, da se obraza ne dotikate (kar se jaz ne), drugače se prenaša, tako na oblačila, kot tudi na roko, prste, ob dotiku.

As any other, I also set this foundation with a loose powder. Because it’s so creamy, my skin gets oily really quickly. After an hour I can see an oily shine around my nose and forehead. This will be an even bigger problem for the ladies with oily skin, so I don’t recommend it, but for the ones with dry skin, this will be great. The foundation will last quite long if you don’t touch your face (which I don’t), but otherwise it does transfer to clothes, hands, fingers, upon touch.

Jaz sem ga kupila v Mullerju in zanj odštela okoli 12€. Jaz ga sedaj uporabljam, ko grem, na primer, v trgovino in ga nanesem s prsti samo pod očmi, okoli nosu in na bradi. To mi vzame minuto in že sem pripravljena na odhod. Če se ličim za cel dan, potem uporabim kaj bolj obstojnega in nekaj kar mi ne zmasti kože tako hitro.

I bought it in Muller and paid around 12€ for it. I use it when I go, for example, to the store and apply it under my eyes, around my nose and on my chin only. This takes a minute and I’m out the door. If I apply make-up for the whole day then I use something more long-wearing and something that doesn’t make my skin oily that fast.
