Miks tedna: Nakup, EOTD, Poli …

Maybe you’ve noticed that I’ve been a bit absent in the past month or so. There’s no particular reason for that (and at the same time there’s tons of reasons, but I’m not going to talk about them). I guess the main reason is that I’ve been giving a lot of energy in this blog in the past three years and now I need a bit of time to recharge my batteries. At the moment I just don’t enjoy writing posts and taking photos of make up. I hope that will change soon (I’m very unpredictable, maybe I’ll be back on track tomorrow – who knows). Until then I’ll write a post or two from time to time. This is not a goodbye post or anything like it, I just wanted to let you know, why there’s less posts than usual.

Today I have a mix of the week for you. Here we go …

My cat had to be taken to the vet, because he’s been fighting with another cat and the wound got infected. (Don’t worry, he’s already feeling much better.)

He’s such a cute, brave and good cat. He helped to reorganize one of our fish tanks …

Sleeping in my light box was a challenge (even for him).

I’ve been shopping a bit last week. I got some nice make up stuff on sale. And some (well actually a lot of) candy too ..

I wanted to buy DS Mystery for a long long time now, but I always changed my mind, because it was too expensive. And now I got it on sale and I’m happy.

I bought DS Illuminate because of the green flash.

This one looked like a nice nude shade.

This eyeshadow duo looked promising and also the tester was nice quality. I bought it because it was on sale and also because it’s such a basic duo with almost completely matte eyeshadows.

The light shade is almost invisible on my skin. The dark shade is hard and needs a couple of layers to become visible and even as it is in the photo below. I’m not impressed.

I haven’t been adventurous with make up for a long time now. I’ve been mostly wearing brown tones on my eyes. My make up from yesterday using Catrice – Berlin make up palette …

I’ve been neglecting my nails. The result … My nails are not in a good shape at the moments and they are very short (which I don’t mind, but they look funny on photos). My cuticles are dry. My nails have been naked almost a week now. I wore only a base coat. Yesterday I painted them in a nice nude color: Catrice – Mona Lisa Is Staring Back. It’s a lovely milky peachy pink shade with nice gold shimmer. Very lovely and work appropriate color. It’s very easy to apply. It even looks nice and even with only one coat. I think you can build it up to full opacity with three coats. This shade is on sale right now, because it’s soon going to be discontinued. You can get it for 2€ right now.

And weird photos of today’s FOTD using the Catrice eyeshadow duo I showed you above. After trying these eyeshadows I can not recommend them. The light eyeshadows barely shows on my skin and the brown one is hard and not pigmented enough for my liking. Though the brown one could be very good for eyebrows.

I think that’s it for today. That was my mix of the week. If you feel like it, write in the comments your mix of the week. I can’t wait to read what you’ve been up to last week. :w00t:

Morda ste opazili, da sem bila v zadnjem času precej odsotna. Za mojo odsotnost ni posebnega razloga (in hkrati je na tisoče razlogov, o katerih pa ne bom pisala.) Verjetno pa je glavni razlog ta, da sem v zadnjih treh letih ogromno svoje energije vložila v ta blog in sedaj rabim nekaj časa, da si ponovno napolnim baterije. V tem trenutku enostavno ne uživam v pisanju prispevkov in tudi ne uživam v fotografiranju make up zadev. Upam, da se bo stanje kmalu spremenilo (te stvari so zelo nepredvidljive in morda se stanje že jutri spremeni – le kdo bi vedel). Do takrat bom od časa do časa napisala post ali dva. Vsekakor to ni poslovilni post ali kaj podobnega, le rada bi pojasnila, zakaj v zadnjem čase ne mrgoli mojih prispevkov. Prispevke pišem z dušo in srcem ter za svoje veselje, zato teh reči ne želim forsirati.

Danes imam za vas miks tedna.

Moj mačkon je pravi pretepač. Očitno se je ponovno stepel z enim od “sovražnikov” in rana, ki jo je pridelal v “vojni”, se je zagnojila globoko, zato ga je bilo treba peljati k veterinarju. (Ne skrbite, Poli se že veliiiikoooo bolje počuti.)

Poli

Poli ...

Neverjetno lušten, pogumen in priden mačkon. Pridno je pomagal pri preurejanju enega od akvarijev …

Spanje v mojem “light box-u” je tudi zanj pravi izziv.

V preteklem tednu sem malo nakupovala. Po znižani ceni sem kupila kar nekaj prav luštnih izdelkov. In (kar) nekaj bonbonov …

Že dolgo sem si želela DS Mystery, a sem ga vedno postavila nazaj na polico, ker mi je bil enostavno predrag. Sedaj so ga znižali na znosno ceno, kar me je razveselilo.

DS Illuminate sem kupila, ker ima tako lepo zeleno “stran”.

Tale se mi je zdel zelo obetaven nevtralen odtenek.

Tale dvojček senčil je prav tako deloval obetavno in tudi tester se je zdel dobre kvalitete. Dvojček senčil sem kupila, ker je bil znižan in ker se mi je zdel zelo preprost in osnoven komplet senčil s skoraj popolnoma mat senčili.

Svetel odtenek je na moji polti praktično neviden. Temen odtenek pa je trd in potrebnih je kar nekaj plasti, da izgleda tako viden in enakomeren, kot na fotografiji spodaj. Nisem navdušena.

Že kar nekaj časa sem s svojimi make up-i popolnoma dolgočasna. Na očeh nosim večinoma samo rjave odtenke. Moj MU od včeraj. Uporabila sem Catrice – Berlin paleto senčil …

Tudi svoje nohte sem zanemarjala. Rezultat … Moji nohti niti približno niso v dobrem stanju. So zelo kratki (kar me sicer ne moti, le hecno izgledajo na fotografijah). Obnohtna kožica je izsušena. Že en teden so bili “nagci”. Nanašala sem le podlak. Včeraj sem jih le malo uredila in jih prebarvala v skoraj neopazno barvo: Catrice – Mona Lisa Is Staring Back. Gre za zelo simpatičen mlečno-roza-breskov odtenek z zlatim šimrom. Izredno lušten vsakodneven odtenek. Tudi nanos je izredno enostaven (kljub nekam čudnemu čopiču). Celo samo z enim nanosom izgleda lepo in enakomerno. Mislim, da se ga da s tremi sloji spraviti do popolne prekrivnosti. Odtenek je trenutno znižan, saj gre iz prodaje.

Za konec pa še malo čudni fotografiji mojega današnjega MUja, kjer sem preizkusila dvojček senčil, ki sem ga omenila zgoraj. Resnično me ni prepričal in ne bi ga ponovno kupila. Kot sem že omenila, je svetel odtenek na meni praktično neviden, temen odtenek pa se ne nanaša najlepše. Čeprav … temen odtenek bi verjetno bil prav uporaben za obrvi … hmm …

Mislim, da je to za danes vse … to je bil moj miks tedna. Če se vam ljubi, mi v komentarjih napišite svoj miks tedna. Veselim se že prebrati, kaj ste počeli pretekli teden. :w00t:
