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.

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.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 😉

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.

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.

Če ste brali prejšnje objave 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. Makeup Geek je prav tako prišel ven z 18 novimi senčili, ki so tudi že na voljo na Beauty Bay strani.

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 also came out with 18 new eyeshadows, that are already available on the Beauty Bay site.

Lush: Blackberry bath bomb

Ta kopalna bombica je po mojem mnenju v prodaji že celo večnost, jaz pa sem jo kupila šele letos. Bombica je vijolična in na vrhu je vtisnjen napis BOMB. Moja je sicer imela par belo-vijoličnih pikic, ampak mislim, da je to bilo zato, ker sem jo slučajno zmočila in niso take ponavadi.

This bath bomb, in my opinion, has been sold in Lush for ages and I finally bought it this year.  The bomb is purple with the word BOMB imprinted on the top. Mine had a few white-purple dots, but I think it was because it got wet and they usually don’t look like that.

IMG_7191

Dišala je zelo močno in po prejšnji (ocena tukaj), ko sem bila razočarana, mi je bilo všeč, da lepo diši. Že samo ime pove, da diši po robidah, vendar pa je vonj robid pomešan tudi z vonjem bergamotke. Voda se obarva vijolično a je še vedno prosojna. Video kopalne bombice v akciji lahko vidite spodaj.

It smelled really strong and after the last one (review here), when I was disappointed, I liked that it smelled so nice. The name itself let’s us know that it smells like blackberries, but the blackberry scent is mixed with the scent of bergamot. The water stains purple, but it’s still transparent. Video of the bath bomb in action can be seen below.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, parfum, olje bergamotke, olje kadila, barvilo 18050, barvilo 42045.

Kar mi je bilo všeč in kaj imam rada je to, da me v sredini bombice preseneti sporočilo. Tokrat je pisalo Boom Boom! Super bi blo, če bi Lush natisnil na primer 100 različnih sporočil in jih naključno dajal v kopalne krogle, tako da nikoli ne bi vedeli kaj bi dobili. 😉 Kože mi ni izsušila, saj vsebuje tudi olja, kar je vedno velik plus. Koža je bila prav tako lepo odišavljena po kopeli, vonj se je obdržal kakšne tri ure.

What I liked and what I love is when I’m surprised by a note, hidden in the middle of the bomb. This time it said Boom Boom! It would be great if Lush would print for example a 100 different messages and randomly place them in the bath bombs, so you would never know, what you would get. 😉 It didn’t dry out my skin, because it contains oils as well, which is always a big plus. The skin was nicely perfumed after the bath, the scent lingered for about three hours.

IMG_7198

Vse je bilo super dokler nisem stopila iz banje, saj se je na površini vode nabralo olje (olje bergamotke in/ali olje kadila) in se posledično oprijelo roba banje. Še slabše je bilo, ko sem poskušala to zdrgnit, saj samo z vodo ni šlo. Po sproščujoči kopeli pa se mi res ni dalo še banje čistiti. Tako, da ji dajem to v minus. Ne vem, če se to vedno dogaja ali je bilo kaj narobe z mojo? Kakšne so vaše izkušnje?

Everything was great until I stepped out of the bathtub, because oil accumulated on the water surface (bergamot oil and/or frankincense oil) and subsequently clinged to the edge of the tub. It was even worse when I tried to rub it off, because it wouldn’t  with water only. After a relaxing bath I really didn’t want to clean the bathtub. So that was a minus. I don’t know if this always happens or there was something wrong with mine? What are your experiences?

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.

IMG_6685

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.

IMG_5929a

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.
