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.

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?

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.

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.

IMG_8009

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.

IMG_8089

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.

H&M: Powder Puff lipstick

IMG_8069

H&M kozmetika me vedno pritegne in ker me zadnje čase vedno bolj mikajo šminke sem se odločila tudi poskusit eno. Čeprav mi je večina barv všeč, pa sem izbrala tako, ki jo bom največ tudi uporabljala.

H&M cosmetics always attracts me and because lately I’ve been into lipsticks I decided to try one out. Although I like most of the colors I chose the one that I’ll use the most.

IMG_8071

Embalaža mi je zelo lepa, krem in zlata (z zlato v mojem mnenju ne morejo zgrešit), izgleda izredno šik. Šminka ima navoj, ki dobro deluje, pokrov je na klik. Sama šminka je pakirana še v kartonasto škatlico. Vonja skorajda nima, le narahlo voham vanilijo. Prav tako nima okusa. Sama sem izbrala odtenek Powder Puff, ki je nevtralno zaprašeno rožnata barva.

The package is really nice, cream and gold (you can’t go wrong with gold in my opinion) and it looks really chic. The lipstick has a twist up system that works great and the lid is a click on. The lipstick itself is packaged in a cardboard box. It’s almost scentless, I slightly smell vanilla. It also has no flavor. I chose the shade Powder Puff which is a neutral dusty pink color.

IMG_8073

Šminka je kremaste teksture, ni mat, a je kljub temu relativno dobro obstojna. Prav tako z enim nanosom prekrije moje ustnice. Šminka je lepo mazljiva, se ne razliva v gubice. Sama jo najraje kombiniram z Essence Longlasting barvico za ustnice v odtenku 05 Lovely Frappuccino in tako je šminka še bolj obstojna. Seveda jo je potrebno po kakšni uri, uri pa pol ponovno nanesti, še posebej če boste jedle ali pile. Ustnic mi ne izsuši, prav tako jih ne navlaži.

The lipstick has a creamy texture, it’s not matte but it’s still relatively long wearing. One swipe covers my lips. The lipstick is nicely malleable and doesn’t bleed into lines. I like to combine it with the Essence Longlasting lipliner in the shade 05 Lovely Frappuccino and that makes the lipstick even more long wearing. Of course you’ll have to reapply after about an hour, hour and a half, especially if you eat or drink. It doesn’t dry out my lips nor does it moisturize them.

hm4Collage

Meni so H&M šminke res super, vendar pa je cena po mojem mnenju za te šminke kar visoka. Za H&M bi pričakovala nižjo ceno, kljub kvaliteti, saj sem za šminko odštela 10€. Nagledanih imam še par nevtralnih odtenkov a glede nakupa se še nisem odločila, izključno zaradi cene. H&M kozmetične izdelke lahko kupite v njihovi spletni trgovini ali v Cityparku v Ljubljani. Imati vi kakšen H&M izdelek, ki ga moram poskusiti? Kakšen glos, barvico za ustnice ali kaj drugega?

I really like the H&M lipsticks but the price is quite high in my opinion. I would expect a lower price for H&M despite the quality because I paid 10€ for the lipstick. I have a few other neutral shades on my wishlist but I still haven’t decided if I’ll buy them solely because of the price. You can buy the H&M cosmetics on the website or in Citypark in Ljubljana. Do you have any H&M product that I have to try? A gloss, lipliner or something else maybe?

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.

H&M: Charcoal and pumice face mask

hmcCollage

Kar se negovalne kozmetike tiče, so mi najljubše maske za obraz. Najljubše maske pa so mi tiste, s katerimi lahko na koncu naredim še piling obraza. Zato je tudi Lusheva maska Cup O’coffee (ocena tukaj) moja najljubša maska ta trenutek in tudi drugače prisegam na njihove sveže maske za obraz. Maske sem v H&M-u gledala že parkrat, vendar se nikoli nisem odločila za nakup. Tokrat pa sem se vseeno odločila poskusiti.

When it comes to skin care cosmetics, my favorite are face masks. My favorite masks are the ones, that can exfoliate my face in the end as well. That’s also why my favorite mask at the time is Cup O’coffee (review here) from Lush and I otherwise also swear by their fresh face masks. I was looking at the masks in H&M a couple of times, but never decided to buy one. This time I decided to try them anyway.

Kupila sem dve maski in sicer tole z ogljem in plovcem za utrujeno kožo ter eno z blatom mrtvega morja za mešano kožo. Maske so pakirane v majhnem lončku za enkratno uporabo. Torej naj bi bilo tudi maske ravno dovolj za enkrat. Vse maske imajo lončke različnih barv, predvidevam, da na barvo tudi vplivajo sestavine. Ta je bil črni, verjetno zaradi oglja. Zraven prav tako dobimo navodila, ki so natisnjena na kartonasti zloženki v kateri je lonček. Embalaža je torej dobro zamišljena za enkratno uporabo.

I bought two masks, the charcoal and pumice for tired skin and the dead sea mud mask for combination skin.The masks are nicely packed in a small pot for single use. So there should be enough mask for a one time use in the pot. All of the masks have different colored pots, I assume, that the ingredients probably affect the colors. This one was black, presumably because of the charcoal. We also get instructions, which are printed on the cardboard that holds the pot. The packaging is therefore well conceived for a single use.

hmc2Collage

Opazila sem, da je maske več, kot le za enkrat. Ob zmerni uporabi lahko masko nanesete dvakrat oziroma jo delite s prijateljico. Jaz sem jo na debelo namazala na obraz, pa jo je še kar nekaj ostalo v lončku, ampak sem ostanek pač vrgla. Masko bi naj vmasirali na umiti in moker obraz, ter jo pustili na obrazu do 15 minut. Maska se je čez čas začela sušiti, vendar pa se ni popolnoma posušila, ker kot sem omenila, sem jo nanesla kar precej. Občutek na obrazu je dober, kot da bi me maska malo hladila.

I did notice that there is more mask in the pot, than for just one use. If moderately used, you can apply the mask twice or share it with a friend. I applied it really thick on my face and there was still some left in the pot, but I just threw the rest away. We are supposed to massage in the mask on our clean and wet face and leave it on for up to 15 minutes. The mask did start to dry after a while, but didn’t dry completely, because as I mentioned, I applied quite a lot. The feeling on the skin is good, it feels like the mask is cooling.

hmc3Collage

Masko sem po pretečenem času umila in med umivanjem še naredila piling obraza. Umije se enostavno. Na začetku sem res imela dober občutek na koži, koža se mi je zdela izredno čista in sveža, vendar pa je ta občutek izginil po dobrih petih minutah, ko mi je kožo na licih začelo zategovati. Občutek je bil izredno neprijeten in da kožo pomirim sem nanesla Melvitino olje ROSE + (ocena tukaj). Olje je učinkovalo in koža se je pomirila. Predvidevam, da je maska na licih kožo preveč izsušila, saj imam mešan tip kože, na licih trenutno normalen.

After the 15 minutes passed, I washed the mask off and exfoliated as well while washing it. I does wash off easily. In the beginning I had a good feeling on the skin, the skin felt extremely clean and fresh, but the feeling disappeared after five minutes, when my skin started to tighten on the cheeks. It felt extremely uncomfortable and to calm my skin down I applied the Melvita ROSE + oil (review here). The oil worked and the skin calmed down. I assume that the mask dried the skin on my cheeks too much, because I have combination skin type, normal on the cheeks at the time.

Maska je vredu, nič posebnega. Jaz jo zase ne bom več kupila ravno zaradi neprijetnega občutka, če pa jo boste poskusili pa obvezno nanesite kremo za obraz po uporabi. Mogoče bi bila maska boljša za punce z izredno mastno kožo. Masko sem kupila v Ljubljani v H&M trgovini v Cityparku in zanjo odštela 2,99€.

The mask is okay, nothing special. I won’t buy it anymore because of the unpleasant feeling, but if you want to try it out, then don’t forget to apply a face cream after using it. Maybe the mask would be better for girls with extremely oily skin. I bought the mask in Ljubljana in the H&M store in Citypark and paid 2,99€ for it.

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.

IMG_6658

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.

IMG_6659

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.

IMG_6661

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.
