Lush: Rose Jam

img_8965

Ta gel za tuširanje ni nov. Jaz sem ga celo lani kupila sestri za božič. Poskusila sem ga pa prvič pri mami in od takrat (mislim, da je bil maj) sem čakala, da bodo dobili spet božično kolekcijo, da ga kupim. In prvega oktobra, ko so dobili božično kolekcijo, sem že bila tam. Kupila sem gel in 7 božičnih kopalnih bombic, vendar pa se trenutno ne smem kopati zaradi zdravstvenih težav, tako da ne vem če bom uspela bombice oceniti do konca leta.

This shower gel isn’t new. I actually bought it last Christmas for my sister. The first time I tried it was at my moms house and since then (I think it was May) I was waiting for them to get the Christmas collection again so I can buy it. On first October when they got the Christmas collection I was there. I bought the gel and 7 Christmas bath bombs but because I’m having some medical problems and can’t take baths I don’t know if I will be able to review the bombs until the end of the year.

Pojdimo kar na gel. Gel je pakiran v prozorno plastenko s črno etiketo, tipično za Lush. Dozira se enostavno. Gel je vinsko rdeče barve in srednje (normalno) goste konsistence. Izredno lepo se peni, sama uporabljam še gobico za tuširanje s katero dobim še več pene. Umije dobro in na koži ne pušča filma, kar je dobrodošlo.

Let’s go to the gel. It’s in a transparent plastic bottle with a black label, typical for Lush. Dosing is easy. The gel is a wine red color and medium (normal) thick consistency. It foams beautifully, I do use a loofah that provides even more foam. It cleans well and doesn’t leave any film on the skin which is always welcoming.

Preidimo na vonj. Vonj je tudi glavni razlog, zakaj sem si ga tako želela. Meni osebno diši po cvetličnem medu. Medu gel sploh ne vsebuje, ampak vsebuje pa vanilijo, sok goji jagod, arganovo olje, absolut turške vrtnice in še veliko drugih dobrih sestavin. Torej diši sladko cvetlično. Zame je to eden najboljših gelov za tuširanje. Kože mi ne izsuši, kar je velik plus.

Let’s move on to the scent. The scent is also the main reason why I wanted it so much. To me personally it smells like flower honey. The gel doesn’t even contain honey but it does contain vanilla, goji berry juice, argan oil, Turkish rose and many other good ingredients. So it does have a sweet floral scent. For me this is one of the best shower gels. It doesn’t dry out my skin which is great.

Če zaokrožim, lahko iskreno povem, da je to definitivno moj naljubši gel za tuširanje. Gel je zaenkrat še na voljo v Lush trgovinah in v spletni trgovini, plačali pa boste 16,95€ za 250ml. Jaz ga definitivno priporočam in planiram narediti zaloge za čez celo leto. 🙂

If I round thing up I can honestly say that this is my favorite shower gel. You can still buy it in Lush stores or online and you will pay 16,95€ for 250ml. I definitely recommend it and I plan on stocking up for the year. 🙂

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

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.

ABH: Pro Series Powder Contour Banana in Vanilla

ABHCollage

Anastasia Beverly Hills mi je bila vedno zanimiva in vsakič, ko sem gledala punce kako so uporabljale njene palete za konturiranje, sem si želela, da bi si jo tudi jaz lahko kupila. Čez čas me je minil nakup palete, še vedno pa sem si želela dober banana puder v kamnu ali prahu za fiksiranje korektorja. Na mojo srečo je, po neuspešnem iskanju, Beauty Bay dobil posamezne pudre v kamnu za ponovno polnitev palet.

I was always interested in Anastasia Beverly Hills and every time I watched girls use her contour palette I always wished I could buy it as well. After a while I lost interest in the palette but I still wanted a good banana powder, compact or loose, for setting my concealer. Luckily for me after an unsuccessful search, Beauty Bay got the individual refill powders for the palettes.

IMG_8130

Odločila sem se kupiti kar dve barvi, saj me je skrbelo, da bi bila Banana preveč rumena zame, ki imam precej bolj nevtralno hladen podton. Tako sem poleg Banane kupila še Vanilijo. Ker so to posamezni pudri, ki so za ponovno polnitev palete, nimajo svoje embalaže, ampak so pakirani le v kartonasti škatlici in potrebujete paleto v katero jih boste shranili. Sama ju hranim v Z paleti, ki je super priročna.

I decided to buy two shades because I was worried that Banana would be too yellow for me because I have a more neutral cool undertone. So in addition to Banana I bought Vanilla as well. Because these are individual refill powders they come just in a pan packaged in a cardboard box and you need a palette to store them in. I store them in a Z palette which is super convenient.

Levo/Left: Vanilla, Desno/Right: Banana

Prvi šok, ki sem ga doživela, je bila velikost samih pudrov. Pri naročanju namreč nisem bila pozorna na težo produkta, tako da sem pričakovala standardnih 5-6g. Dobila sem seveda veliko manj in sicer 3g. Še dobro, da pudra uporabljam samo pod očmi, saj ju tako ne porabim veliko.

The first shock that I experienced was the size of the powders. While ordering them I wasn’t paying attention to the weight of the product so I expected a standard 5-6g. I of course got a lot less, namely 3g. It’s good that I only use the powder under my eyes so I don’t use a lot.

ABHCollage2

Levo/Left: Samo puder in korektor. / Just foundation and concealer.                           Desno/Right: Pod levim očesom Banana, pod desnim očesom Vanilla. / Under the left eye Banana, under the right eye Vanilla.

Banana je svetlo rumen mat puder, Vanilla pa svetlo krem, delno mat. Oba pudra sta ravno prav mehka, da se lepo oprimeta ščetin na čopiču. Pudra sta prav tako precej pigmentirana, Banana bolj kot Vanilla, tako da dodatno prekrijeta moje temne podočnjake. Ker se mi je Banana zdel prerumen sem ju začela mešati in tako dobila perfektni odtenek. Pudra dobro fiksirata moj korektor in tudi predel pod očmi lepo osvetlita.

Banana is a pale matte yellow, Vanilla is a pale demi matte cream. Both of the powders are soft enough so they stick to the brush bristles. The powders are quite pigmented as well, Banana more than Vanilla so they additionally cover my dark under eye circles. Because I thought that Banana was too yellow I started mixing them together and that’s how I got the perfect shade. The powders set my concealer really well and also brighten the under eye area.

Končni izgled, pomešana pudra / Finished look, mixed powders.

Za 3g produkta sem na Beauty Bayu odštela 16,50€ kar se mi zdi veliko za sicer dober puder. Velik plus je, da je izbor odtenkov širok, tako da lahko vsaka najde nekaj zase in si načeloma kupi le enega, namesto cele palete. Jaz ju bom z veseljem porabila, nisem pa prepričana, da ju bom spet kupila. Bolj me mika Laura Mercier Brightening powder za predel pod očmi. Kaj vi uporabljate za fiksiranje korektorja? Priporočate kaj?

I paid 16,50€ on Beauty Bay for 3g of product and I find that to be too much for a powder that is good. The big plus is that there is a wide selection of shades so everyone can find something for themselves and generally buy only one instead of the whole palette. I will happily use them but I’m not sure I’ll buy them again. I’m more temped by the Laura Mercier Brightening powder for the under eye area. What do you use for setting you concealer? Do you recommend anything?

Lush The Experimenter

Lush Experimenter me je pritegnil zaradi videza. Kopalna bombica je šesterokotnik, modre in rozaste na eni in bele ter rumene barve na drugi strani. Obe polovici sta zalepljeni skupaj z vijolično plastjo. Tudi samo ime je zanimivo: Experimenter. Eksperiment. Hm…le zakaj se imenuje tako? 🙂 Radovednost me je seveda premagala in kaj hitro sem jo poskusila. Glavna nota je vanilija, ki mi zelo lepo diši, če le ne diši umetno.

Lush Experimenter attracted me because of it’s appearance. The bath bomb is a hexagon, blue and pink on one and white and yellow on the other side. Both halves are glued together with a purple layer. The name itself is interesting: Experimenter. Experiment. Why is it named like that? 🙂 Curiosity got the best of me and I had to try it. The main note is vanilla, which I like as long as it doesn’t smell artificially.

Lush-The-Experimenter-Review

Sama bombica meni ne diši po vaniliji. Diši po Lushu. 🙂 Vsi, ki poznate Lush, veste o čem govorim. Bombica je mešanica cvetličnega, sadnega in sladkega vonja, kjer nič ne izstopa, ampak note sodelujejo druga z drugo. Vonj je blag in na koži se obdrži par ur. Gledanje te bombice kako se topi v vodi je pravo doživetje. Iz bombice na gladini vode plešejo rumena, modra, rožnata barva, ki se skupaj mešajo v zeleno, potem modro zeleno in na koncu v temno zeleno barvo. Ker so v bombici drobne bleščice se te v vodi svetlikajo in se tudi prilepijo na kožo. Kožo je potrebno dobro umiti po kopanju, če ne želite da bleščice ostanejo na koži.

The bomb itself doesn’t smell like vanilla. It smells like Lush. 🙂 Everyone that is familiar with Lush knows what I’m talking about. The bomb is a mixture of flowery, fruity and sweet scent, where nothing stands out, but the notes work together. The scent is mild and stays on the skin for a few hours. Watching this bomb fizzing in the water is a true adventure. The bomb makes yellow, blue and pink color dance together on the surface and then mix together into a green, then blue green and lastly dark green color. Since the bath bomb does contain shimmer, the water sparkles and the shimmer does stick to your skin. You do need to wash thoroughly after bathing if you don’t want the shimmer to stay on the skin.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, parfum, pokajoči bonbončki, vetiverjevo olje, absolut tonke, absolut vanilije iz pravične trgovine, vinski kamen, voda, titanov dioksid, natrijev lavrat sulfat, lavril betain, kumarin, eugenol, limonene, linalool, kalcijev natrijev borosilikat, kositrov oksid, zlate bleščice, barvilo 42090, barvilo 45410, barvilo 45350 (Lush.si)

Kože mi ne izsuši, kar je vedno plus, še posebej pozimi, ko je moja koža izredno občutljiva. Za kopalno bombico sem odštela 6,95€ kar se mi za občasno razvajanje ne zdi veliko in jaz jo bom še sigurno kupila.

It doesn’t dry out my skin, which is always a plus, especially in the winter time, when my skin is extremely sensitive. I paid 6,95€ which is OK for an occasional indulgence. See the bomb in action in the video above.
