Makeup Geek: Grandstand

img_8723

Čeprav Makeup Geek senčila ocenjujem ponavadi v paru, pa je to edino “foiled” senčilo, ki ga imam in zato ga ocenjujem posamezno, saj je tudi cena višja, kot pri navadnih Makeup Geek senčilih.

Although I usually review Makeup Geek eyeshadows in pairs, this is the only foiled eyeshadow that I have so I’m reviewing it by itself and also the price is higher than usual with the “normal” Makeup Geek eyeshadows.

Makeup Geek trdi, da so njihova “foiled” senčila nekaj posebnega, saj so hibrid med kremnimi senčili in senčili v prahu/kamnu. Ponujajo neverjetno pigmentacijo v kombinaciji s kovinskim finišem. Senčilo je res izredno kremasto a hkrati ni kremno. Že na otip je drugačno. Meni je ta formula res odlična in vredna svoje cene.

Makeup Geek claims that their foiled eyeshadows are something special because they are a hybrid between cream and powder eyeshadows. They give incredible pigmentation in combination with a metallic finish. The eyeshadow is really very creamy but not a cream. Even at the touch it’s different. This formula is really excellent and worth the price in my opinion.

Samo senčilo Grandstand je srednje rožnato zlato z malenkost sivkasto-vijoličnega podtona in kovinskim finišem seveda. Sama bi senčilo opisala kot rožnato zlato. Senčilo torej je izredno pigmentirano, najboljše se nanaša s ploščatim čopičem ali celo prstom in se tudi lepo razmazuje. Senčilo je obstojno cel dan in se kljub kremasti teksturi ne poseda v gubo veke (vedno uporabljam bazo za senčila). Sama ga uporabljam za večerne izglede in ponavadi čez celo veko ali na sredini veke za nekaj več.

The eyeshadow Grandstand is a medium rose gold with a hint of taupe undertones and of course a foiled finish. I would describe the color as rose gold. The eyeshadow is extremely pigmented and applies best with a flat brush or even with a finger and also blends nicely. It lasts all day and doesn’t set in the crease although it’s so creamy (I always use an eyeshadow base). I use it mostly for evening looks and usually over the whole eyelid or on the center of the lid for something more.

Tako kot ostala, tudi to senčilo ni v svoji embalaži, ampak boste potrebovale magnetno paleto, za hranjenje. Cena enega senčila je 10€ na Beauty Bay strani, kjer sem ga tudi sama kupila. Makeup Geek je pripravil nova senčila, ki so že na voljo v tujini, tokrat tudi ta s “foiled” finišem. Se že veselim novega nakupa. 🙂  Prav tako ne pozabite, da vas v petek čaka make-up izgled z uporabo tega senčila.

Like the other ones, this eyeshadow doesn’t come in its own packaging so you’ll need a magnet palette to store them in. The price of one eyeshadow is 10€ on the Beauty Bay site where I bought it. Makeup Geek has developed new eyeshadows that are already available abroad, this time also foiled eyeshadows. I look forward to purchasing some new shades. 🙂 Also don’t forget that there will be a makeup look on Friday with this eyeshadow.

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.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 😉

Swatchi ocenjene palete. Swatchi so bili narejeni v light boxu brez fleša in s flešem. Prav tako pa na naravni svetlobi.

The swatches were made in the light box with and without flash as well as on the natural light.
