Toxic make-up look

img_9287

Ne samo, da slavimo 1. obletnico bloga in da je to zadnja objava to leto, prav tako je to 100. objava. Ponosna sem, da sem uspela v enem letu objaviti 100 objav, takšnih in drugačnih, še bolj vesela pa sem, da sem imela več obiska, kot sem si kdajkoli predstavljala, da ga bom imela. Zato se želim tudi zahvaliti vsem, ki ste kdaj slučajno ali namerno pokukali na moj blog, kaj pokomentirali in se prijavili v mojo bazo rednih obiskovalcev.

Not only that we’re celebrating the 1st anniversary of the blog and that this is the last post in this year it’s also the 100th post. I’m proud to have succeeded to post 100 different posts in a year, I’m even happier that I had more traffic than I ever imagined that I would ever have. Therefore I want to thank everyone that accidentally or intentionally stopped at my blog, commented or subscribed.

Zadnja objava je tako makeup izgled z uporabo Makeup Geek senčila, ki sem ga v zadnji objavi ocenila in sicer je to Toxic, prav tako pa sem ustvarila izgled, ki je primeren tudi za zadnji večer v letu, za silvestrovo. A nikar ne skrbite, saj je izgled izredno enostavno poustvariti, saj uporabim samo 3 senčila.

The last post is a make-up look using the Makeup Geek eyeshadow that I reviewed in my last post namely Toxic and I also created a look that is suitable for the New Year’s Eve. But don’t worry because this look is very easy to recreate because I only used 3 eyeshadows.

img_9277

Začela sem z bazo za veke in bež senčilom s katerim sem fiksirala bazo. Nato sledi prvo Makeup Geek senčilo in sicer Unexpected (1.), katero nanesem kot prehodno barvo, torej v gubo veke in ga zblendam s širšim čopičem malenkost nad gubo in tudi pod gubo. To ponovim dvakrat, tako da je senčilo enakomerno nanešeno. Potem nadaljujem z Vintage (2.) senčilom, katero nanesem na celo veko, do očesne gube. Senčilo nanašam, dokler ni enakomerno nanešeno. S prvim čopičem grem brez dodatnega produkta čez gubo veke, da senčili združim.

I started with an eyeshadow base and a beige eyeshadow to set the base. Then I used the first Makeup Geek eyeshadow, Latte (1.) that I apply as a transitional color in the eye crease and blend it with a wider blending brush a bit above and under the crease. I repeat this twice so the eyeshadow is evenly applied. Then I continue with Vintage (2.) eyeshadow that I apply all over the lid, up to the eye crease. I apply the eyeshadow until it’s not evenly applied. I go over the eye crease with the first brush and no additional product to blend the eyeshadows together.

Nato sledi Toxic (3.) katero sem s prstom nanesla čez Vintage, torej čez celo veko. Senčilo narahlo tapkam po veki in to ponavaljam, dokler ni senčilo lepo nanešeno čez celo veko. Z manjšim, ožjim, čopičem za blendanje zajamem malo Vintage senčila in ga nanesem pod gubo ter v zunanji kotiček očesa, da povežem obe senčili. Za zaključek sem narisala še tanko črno črto ob rob trepalnic ter nanesla maskaro. Na spodnjo veko, čisto ob rob trepalnic sem nanesla Vintage (2.) in šla čez z Unexpected (1.) senčilom, da sem robove zabrisala, na notranji rob veke sem nanesla črno barvico ter zaključila z maskaro.

Next is Toxic (3.) that I apply with my finger all over Vintage across the whole lid. I tap the eyeshadow lightly on the eyelid and repeat until the eyeshadow is evenly applied all over the lid. With a smaller, more narrow blending brush I take a little Vintage and apply it under my eye crease and in the outer corner of the eye to blend the both eyeshadows. To finish it off I drew a thin black line at the edge of the eyelashes and applied mascara. On my lower eyelid right under the eyelashes I applied Vintage (2.) and went over with Unexpected (1.) to blend the edges, put some black eye kohl on my waterline and concluded with mascara.

V notranji kotiček očesa in pod obrv pa sem nanesla kar osvetljevalec katerega sem uporabila na obrazu in sicer MAC Tutu iz božične kolekcije (Sweet Peach). Ker je to silvestrski izgled sem na obraz sicer nanesla bolj nežne rožnate odtenke, malce več osvetljevalca kot ponavadi, na ustnice pa drzno temno šminko in sicer Jouer Clove, ki je izredno udobna, lahko pa nanesete tudi kakšno bež šminko ali nežen rožnati glos. Seznam ostalih izdelkov, ki sem jih uporabila je spodaj.

In my inner eye corner and under my eyebrows I applied the highlighter I used on my face, MAC Tutu from the Christmas collection (Sweet Peach). Because this is a New Year’s Eve look I applied more subtle pink shades to the face, a bit more highlighter than usual and a more bold dark lipstick Jouer Clove, that is extremely comfortable, but you can also apply any nude lipstick or a subtle pink gloss. The List of the other products I used is down below.

Vsem želim prijeten večer jutri, v novem letu pa veliko sreče, zdravja in seveda uspehov na osebni in/ali poslovni ravni.

I wish you all a pleasant evening tomorrow and a lot of luck, health and success in your personal and/or business life in the New Year.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte!😉

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.

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.

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. 😉

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.
