Makeup Geek: Shimma Shimma in Prom Night

O mojem navdušenju nad Makeup Geek senčkami sem pisala že tukaj. Kot sem že takrat omenila, imam trenutno sedem njihovih senčil in tokrat vam predstavljam Shimma Shimma in Prom Night.

I wrote about my enthusiasm about Makeup Geek eyeshadows here. As I said earlier I have seven eyeshadows from Makeup Geek and this time I’m introducing Shimma Shimma and Prom Night.

Shimma Shimma je moja (zaenkrat) najljubša senčka, saj jo uporabim vsakič, ko se naličim. Makeup Geek trdi, da je senčilo šampanjec barve z metalnim finišem. Senčilo je v osnovi bež z rahlo toplim podtonom in res čudovitim sijajem. Jaz senčilo uporabljam za osvetlitev pod obrvmi in v notranjem kotičku očesa. Senčilo je mehko, super pigmentirano in z lahkoto se razmazuje. Po kvaliteti in barvi je zame to res top senčka.

Shimma Shimma is my (for now) favorite eyeshadow, because I use it every time when I wear make-up. Makeup Geek claims that this is a metallic champagne eyeshadow. The shadow is basically beige with a slight warm undertone and beautiful shine. I use it to highlight under my eyebrows and in my inner eye corner. The eyeshadow is soft, pigmented and blends easily. By quality and color this is my top eyeshadow.

Prom night je vijolična osnova s pridihom sive in svetlečim finišem. Prom Night je senčilo, katero lahko nanesem čez celo veko, pod obrv Shimma Shimma in dobim super izgled za dan ali večer. Všeč mi je, ker ne potrebujem veliko truda, da oči izgledajo, kot da sem porabila eno uro samo za oči. Senčilo je mehko, pigmentirano in se lepo razmazuje.

Prom night is a purple base with a hint of gray and a shimmer finish. Prom Night is an eyeshadow I can apply on the whole lid, Shimma Shimma under my eyebrow and I get a super look for day or night time. I like it when I don’t need a lot of effort to make the eyes look like I used and hour on them. The eyeshadow is soft, pigmented and blends easily.

Če ste brale prvo objavo o Makeup Geek senčilih, potem veste, da senčila ne pridejo v svoji embalaži, ampak boste potrebovale kakšno 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 first Makeup Geek eyeshadow post then you know that the eyeshadows don’t come in a packaging, but just a pan, so you will need a magnetic palette to store them in. The price of one eyeshadow is 6,30€ on Beuty Bay, where I bought them.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 😉

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.

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.
