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.

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).

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.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Stila Extreme Lash Primer and Mascara

Tole sem kupila slučajno na Beauty Bay-u, ko sem kupovala ene druge produkte in sem  naletela na tale set baze za trepalnice in maskaro za samo 9€. In še dobro da sem. 😀

I bought this by accident on Beauty Bay when I was buying some other products and I came across this set of a primer and mascara for only 9€. And it’s a good thing that I did. 😀

Naj začnem z embalažo. Čeprav sta produkta manjša in v setu, je embalaža identična “originalu”. Ta je mat zlata, z zlato pisavo in okraski. Super lepa je in zelo mi je všeč. Deluje zelo šik.

IMG_6480IMG_6493IMG_6481

Let me start with the packaging. Although these products are smaller and in a set, the packaging is the same as the “original”. It’s matte gold with gold lettering and decoration.

Začnimo kar z bazo. Baza je rjavo obarvana in ne bela, kot večina produktov za isti namen. To je seveda plus, ker tudi če ne greste z maskaro čez vsako trepalnico se ne opazi, saj ne izstopa tako, kot bi bela baza. Stila trdi, da ima baza dve vrsti vlaken (okrogle in ravne) v kremasti formuli, ki se enostavno nanaša in daje polne in dolge trepalnice. In dejansko jih. Krtača je ožja s spiralnimi ščetinami. Baza se enostavno nanaša, trepalnice rahlo obarva rjavo, jim da polnost in dolžino. Uporablja se lahko s katero koli maskaro in tudi takrat deluje enako dobro. Jaz sem zelo zadovoljna in že planiram nakup. Moja baza ima 5ml kar je veliko, saj ima “original” baza 7,5ml in stane 24€. Kupila jo bom tukaj.

IMG_6484 IMG_6491

Let’s start with the primer. The primer is brown tinted and not white as the majority of the products for the same purpose. That’s a plus of course, because if you don’t coat every lash with the mascara it’s not as visible as the white one would be. Stila claims that the primer has two different types of fibers (spherical and straight) in a creamy formula that applies easily and gives full and long lashes. And it does. The brush is thinner with spiral bristles. The primer applies easily, tints the lashes slightly brown and gives them fullness and length. It can be used with any mascara and it works good as well. I’m really very satisfied and am planning to buy it. My primer has 5ml, which is a lot because the “original” primer has 7,5ml and costs 24€. I’ll buy it here.

Stila za maskaro trdi, da je iz mehkih in fleksibilnih voskov, ki daje trepalnicam volumen in dolžino brez sprijemanja. To ne drži popolnoma. Maskara da volumen in dolžino, ampak ker je bolj mokre konsistence se trepalnice rade zlepijo skupaj. Jaz sem šla s čisto krtačko čez, da sem jih razčesala. Krtača je v obliki peščene ure, kar mi tudi ne odgovarja, saj imam raje krtače, ki imajo enako dolge ščetine. Sama maskara drugače dobro opravi svoje delo, ampak moje najljubše (Ardeco All in One) nikakor ne prekaša, zato je ne bom več kupila. Stila prav tako trdi, da maskara pusti trepalnice mehke, plast za plastjo, kar je res. Opozoriti pa moram, da so v kombinaciji z bazo trepalnice rahlo trše, ampak še vedno bolj mehke, kot pri večini maskar. Maskara se ne drobi in je dolgo obstojna. Cena je 22,70€.

Stila claims that the mascara is made of soft and flexible waxes that give the lashes volume and length without clumping. This is not the case. The mascara does give volume and length but because it has a more wet consistency the lashes tend to stick/clump together. I went over with a clean brush to comb them. The brush has an hourglass shape that I don’t like, because I rather have a brush with all the bristles the same length. The mascara itself does a good job, but it does not top my favorite one (Artdeco All in One) so I won’t buy it again. Stila also claims that it leaves the lashes soft, layer after layer, which is true. I do have to point out that the combination of the primer and mascara does make the lashes a bit more stiff, but still softer then most of the mascaras. It doesn’t crumble and it’s long wearing. The price is 22,70€.

Če iščete dobro bazo za trepalnice pa ne veste kaj bi kupili, vam priporočam, da kupite to, saj je res dobra.

If you are looking for a good lash primer and don’t know what to buy I do recommend this one, because it’s really good.

Zoeva En Taupe palette

image2Glede na to, da se že tako ali tako navdušujem nad Zoeva čopiči, sem se začela navduševati tudi nad ličili omenjene znamke. In čeprav sem do zdaj vedno iskala izgovore, zakaj določenega  izdelka ne  potrebujem, sem se v to paletko enostavno zaljubila na prvi pogled in decembra sem jo tudi končno dobila. Sama kupujem Zoeva izdelke v Douglasovi spletni trgovini in dam, da dostavijo v  njihovo trgovino, ki se nahaja v nakupovalnem središču v Seiersbergu (Avstrija), kjer  potem tudi  plačam naročeno.  Zame je ta metoda najbolj preprosta in praktična. Seveda pa imate možnost njihove izdelke  naročiti na Zoevini uradni spletni strani. Paleta je stala 17€.

Given the fact that I really like the Zoeva brushes I also started getting enthused about the make-up as well. Until now I have always looked for excuses, why I don’t need a certain product, but I fell in love with this product and got it in December. I buy the Zoeva products in the Douglas online store and I have them deliver in their store which is in the shopping center Seiersberg (Austria), where I pay for it as well. This method is simple and practical for me. Of course you also have the option to buy the products from the Zoeva official website. The palette cost 17€.

Tale paleta se  mi je zdela  primerna za  vsak dan, torej  za  dnevni make-up lahko pa pride v poštev tudi za večernega. Opremljena s to paleto sem šla tudi k sestri čez praznike in izkazala se je kot povsem dovolj, tako za dnevni, nežni, make-up izgled, kot tudi za intenzivnejšega večernega.

I find this palette suitable for everyday, for a daily make-up look, as well as for a night time look. Equipped with this palette I went to my sister over the holidays and it probed itself to be enough, as well for a daily, soft, make-up look, as well as for an intense night look.

Paleta sama je iz kartona, pakirana je v “rokavu”, ki je identičen zunanjosti palete. V notranjosti je plastična folija, ki je namenjena zaščiti senčil. Paleta se dobro zapira in je trdna ter trpežna, tako da me ni strah, da bi se karkoli poškodovalo. Sumljivi so mi edino robovi, ki bi se znali čez čas malo poškodovati a za tako ugodno ceno jim to zlahka odpustim in me niti najmanj ne bi motilo.

The palette itself is made out of cardboard, packaged in a “sleeve”, that is identical to the exterior of the palette. There is a plastic foil that comes in the palette to protect the eyeshadows. The palette closes well and in sturdy and durable, so I’m not afraid that anything would damage. Only the edges of the palette could damage in the future, but for a price this low I easily forgive them this.

image8

Paleta ima 10 senčil in že samo ime pove, da so barve bolj sivkasto rjave s hladnimi podtoni. 4 barve so mat, 1 je mat z bleščicami, 2 sta duochrome in 3 so satenaste. Senčila so ustrezno mehka, solidno pigmentirana, lahko jih uporabljamo suhe ali mokre. Jaz včasih uporabim duochrome barvi mokri, ker je potem sam učinek večji.

The palette has 10 eyeshadows and the name itself says that the colors are grey-brown with cool undertones – taupey. 4 colors are matte, 1 is matte with shimmer, 2 are duochrome and 3 are satin. The eyeshadows are soft, nicely pigmented and we can use them dry or wet. I occasionally use the duochrome shadows wet so the effect is greater.

Barve se lepo in prijetno nanašajo in preprosto se razmazujejo oziroma “blendajo”. Več slik swatchev lahko pogledate tukaj. 🙂

The eyeshadows apply nicely and they blend easily. For more pictures and swatches click here. 🙂

To je moja prva Zoeva paletka in sem popolnoma prepričana, da tudi ne zadnja. Z veseljem namreč že pričakujem novo Zoeva Spectrum kolekcijo in vem, da bo najmanj ena paletka šla z menoj.

This is my first Zoeva palette and I’m absolutely convinced it’s not the last. I’m already expecting the new Zoeva Spectrum collection and I now that at least one palette will come home with me.
