Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector – 05 Candy ShimmerClarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector – 05 Candy Shimmer

One thing that you recommended to me from Clarins again and again were their Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector. Today I had few spare minutes and decided to check them out. Guess what – one shade was 40% off (today only – how do you like that coincidence), and was one of the prettiest ones, so I bought it on your recommendation only. :cute:

Some of the shades were sheer and didn’t appeal to me. 05 and one of the brown shades look like most compact formula, so it really was no brainer to pick up Clarins Candy Shimmer Natural Lip Perfector.

Ingredients are not stellar but not bad either + the feel on the lips is nice. Color payoff is practically invisible on my lips which goes well with their declaration that this product will give you “subtle, natural colour”.

We’ll see how I like it in the long run. I would normally post a review on this after weeks of testing, but as the sale is today only, I wanted to give a shout to all of those who’re interested in it.

Price: 16 EUR when not on sale for 12ml (0.35 oz.).

Vsakič, ko vprašam kaj od Clarinsa priporočate, je na tapeti eden in isti proizvod – Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector. Danes sem imela ekstra minutko, tako da sem v Maxiju zavila še na oddelek parfumerije. Uganite kaj – samo danes imajo znižanega enega izmed lepših odtenkov, tako da je odšel z menoj samo zato, ker ste ga ve priporočile. :cute:

Nekateri izmed odtenkov so mi bili čisto mimo – prosojni … 05 in eden izmed rjavih odtenkov, sta delovala najbolj obetavno. Tako da odločitev o nakupu Clarins Candy Shimmer Natural Lip Perfector glosa, ni bila ravno težka odločitev … 40% popust pa se le izplača izkoristiti. :silly:

Sestavine niso bajno fantastične, vendar slabe tudi ne + občutek na ustnicah je prijeten in ni lepljiv. Barva sama na mojih ustnicah ni preveč vidna, tako da bi se kar strinjala z njihovo trditvijo, da glosi/balzami pustijo “subtilno , naravno barvo”.

Bomo videli kako se bo obnesel na dolgi rok. Načeloma bi oceno pisala šele po tednih uporabe, vendar sem želela post objaviti še danes, da lahko vse, ki vas balzam/glos zanima, skočite v najbližjo Beautique drogerijo. :angel:

Redna cena: 16 EUR za 12ml.

Catrice Matchpoint LE lip balm tint, eyeshadow baseCatrice Matchpoint LE lip balm tint, baza za senčila

In the end, I only bought 2 products from Catrice Matchpoint LE. I saw no testers for blushes and even though I wanted to buy both Lip Balm Tints, all but one were already tested or tested+dented. :roll:

Catrice Matchpoint haul

Catrice Lip Balm Tint – ChamPINKon

After I had a chance to try out this product I was even sadder that I didn’t manage to buy other one too. And I wanted to get them for Maestra too as those kind of things are really up our alley. :sigh: I love how this balm feels on the lips, leaves longlasting stain and if I’m not neglecting my lips, it doesn’t dry them out either. One thing I can’t do is apply to much of the product – first one thin layer, rub it in into the lips and then another thin layer if I feel I want even bolder pink shade. Otherwise everything slides all over the place and I get less “staining” out of it. To be perfectly honest – one layer is ideal for those of us that are color shy as this product is pretty pigmented.
And I think I’m turning to be complete sucker for twist up pens. :biggrin: I used 2 or 3 thinner layers for the swatch.

Catrice Longlasting Eyeshadow Base & Highlighter – The Winning Cream

This base/highlighter is one of those products I can’t make my mind about. It’s not crappy product but I just can’t find use for it. It doesn’t serve as good secondary eyeshadow on my even oilier eyelids than usually.
It can be used as under-brow highlight, but is too dark for me for that purpose – for my taste that is.
I probably liked it best as “top of the cheek” highlighter but then again I love Essence Me&My Ice cream pearls more. :think:
I liked doe foot applicator, non greasy formula and the fact that it is not glittery product.

Video review of my Catrice Matchpoint and Essence Me&My Ice Cream LE haul:

Did anyone buy the blushes form Matchpoint LE? Are they good for oily skin?

Na koncu sem kupila le 2 izdelka iz Catrice Matchpoint LE. Če se ne motim, ni bilo testerjev za rdečila, in čeprav sem želela kupiti oba Lip Balm Tinta, so bili vsi razen enega že “testirani”. :roll:

Catrice Matchpoint haul

Catrice Lip Balm Tint – ChamPINKon

Po temu, ko sem imela priložnost preizkusiti roza “stain”, sem bila še bolj žalostna, da nisem dobila še rdečega. Pa že tako sem želela kupiti še enega za Maestro, ker obe obožujeva takšne izdelke. :sigh: Všeč mi je način nanosa, občutek na ustnicah, barva, ki se res obdrži, ni izsuševanja … Paziti pa sem nujno morala na eno zadevo – raje slojiti več tanjših plasti (sploh prvo je dobro vtreti v ustnice) kot pa na hitro namazati eno debelejšo. Pri debelejši se mi je produkt kar premikal po ustnicah, barva ni bila tako obstojna … V bistvu je ena plast čisto zadosti za tiste, ki smo bolj barvno sramežljive. :cute: Ne škodi pa niti, da svinčnika ni potrebno šiliti ampak ima avtomatsko “minco”. Za swatch sem uporabila 2 ali 3 tanjše plasti.

Catrice Longlasting Eyeshadow Base & Highlighter – The Winning Cream

Hja – tale baza/(osvetljevalec spada med izdelke o katerih se zelo težko izrečem. Nikakor ne gre za zanič izdelek, vendar mi nekako ne pride prav. Ne obnese se najbolje kot sekundarna baza za veke – res pa je, da so moje veke trenutno na višku produkcije olja in mi gredo že blazno na živce.
Je uporaben kot osvetljevalec pod obrvmi, vendar je meni skoraj pretemen za ta namen.
Še najbolj mi je všeč za osvetljevanje lične kosti, a kaj, ko so mi Essence Me&My Ice Cream perlice bolj pri srcu. :think:
Všeč mi je aplikator, nemastna formula in dejstvo, da ne gre za pretirano bleščičast izdelek.

Catrice – new products for Spring 2013 (review, swatch)Catrice – novi izdelki za Pomlad 2013 (opis, ocena)

Catrice is bringing new products out for Spring and Summer 2013. This is my review about some of the new products.

Catrice new products: Spring 2013

Catrice new products: Spring 2013

Eyebrow Filler – Perfecting & Shaping Gel

Naturally tinted Eyebrow gel, suitable for eyebrow colors. The fibers fill in small gaps – for dense and perfectly shaped eyebrows within seconds.

I’ve never had a product like this, so I was very excited to try it. At first I was disappointed. It hardly did anything to my eyebrows. After a while I got used to it and now I like it a lot and use it almost every day. What did I do wrong in the beginning? I probably just didn’t put enough product on my eyebrows. I was afraid that I would put on too much and so I ended putting on too little. After I realized that it is not as pigmented as I thought it would be, everything was fine. Now I really like the product. I just wish it would hold in place my eyebrows better. And a big down side to this product is that there is only one color available.

Make up: Catrice new products: Spring 2013

The Giant – Extreme Volume Mascara Waterproof

Extreme volume that lasts all day. “The Giant” Waterproof Mascara delivers a stunning look with bold and dramatic lashes. Thanks to the specially shaped XXL-brush, every single lash from the inner to the outer corner can be reached easily. Easy to remove with waterproof make-up remover. Ophthalmologically tested.

Let’s got straight to the point. I do not like this mascara. I think that the wand (XXL-brush) is weird and it makes the application of the product harder (not easier). I just didn’t get used to it. Yes, it is easy to get into the inner and outer corners with the thin side of the wand, but what about the really big side. I just do not get it. And the worst part is, they promise you “stunning look with bold and dramatic lashes”. Well, it didn’t happen to me (see the make up photos). I get more drama to my lashes with only one coat of my beloved mascara than I got with three thick coats of this mascara. The mascara (or the wand) separates the lashes nicely. The lashes do not get clumped even after three coats. It is one of those dry mascaras.

Infinite Shine Lip Gloss – 070 Very Very Raspberry

Lip Gloss for spectacular shine. Keeps lips smooth and intensely moisturized. Non-sticky.

I completely agree with the claims. The lip gloss gives a nice shine to the lips, it is non-sticky and the lips feel moisturized. I like it a lot. Great for everyday use. It gives a nice flush of color to the lips but is not very pigmented (see the make up photos). It doesn’t stay long on the lips, but one can not expect that a lip gloss like this (non-sticky) would be very long lasting, right? :D

Swatch: Catrice new products: Spring 2013

Ultimate Colour – 260 It’s A Matt World

This is a beautiful and bold red matt lipstick. I love it! The pigmentation is great (see the swatch photo – only one swipe). It is long lasting. It doesn’t really dry the lips out. I mean … yes, the feel on the lips is dry but not drying. If this makes sense. Very lovely lipstick.

Absolute Eye Colour – 650 Petrol Shop Boys and 620 Inglorious Mustards

Both of the eye shadows are very pigmented. Both are a bit too powdery for my liking. I love the gold one (Inglorious Mustards). It gives just the perfect amount of shine if used without the eyeshadow base. I was disappointed by the turquoise one (Petrol Shop Boys). The pigmentation is great when you first apply it, but it fades quickly. By quickly I mean like after a couple of minutes. I think it is because the product is very powdery. It is almost impossible to layer it, because the top layers just disappear after a while. While I recommend the gold eyeshadow, I do not recommend buying the turquoise one although it is a beautiful shade.

Here is the make up I did with the new products I got for review.

Now I am curious … Did you already try any of new products by Catrice? Which ones are your favorites? And were you disappointed by any of the products?

*the products were sent to us for review purposes


Catrice ponovno prenavlja svoja stojala. Nekateri izdelki gredo iz prodaje, veliko novih prihaja. Tukaj je moje mnenje o nekaterih novih izdelkih.

Catrice new products: Spring 2013

Catrice new products: Spring 2013

Eyebrow Filler – Perfecting & Shaping Gel

Goste, popolno oblikovane obrvi dodajo obliko in okvir očem. Naravno obarvan gel za obrvi neguje, zgosti in oblikuje obrvi. Integrirana vlakna v teksturi zapolnijo majhne vrzeli in nepravilnosti. Nevtralna barva gela za obrvi se ujema z obrvmi v vseh barvah. Enostavna uporaba, hitro sušenje brez zlepljenja.

Še nikoli nisem imela podobnega izdelka, zato sem se izredno veselila preizkusiti Eyebrow Filler znamke Catrice. Priznam, da me je sprva razočaral. Praktično nič ni naredil mojim obrvem. Čez čas sem se na zdelek navadila, se ga naučila uporabljati in sedaj mi je izredno všeč in ga uporabljam skoraj vsak dan. Kaj sem torej sprva počela narobe? Najverjetneje sem na obrvi nanesla premalo izdelka, saj sem se bala, da ga bom nanesla preveč. Saj veste: “Manj je več.” V tem primeru se je izkazalo, da temu ni tako, saj izdelek ni tako zelo pigmentiran, kot sem pričakovala. Ko sem se na izdelek navadila, sva postala prijatelja. Želela bi si le, da bi moje obrvi bolj utrdil. Dodaten minus si zasluži, saj je na voljo le en odtenek, ki pa ne bo zadostoval za najtemnejše.

Make up: Catrice new products: Spring 2013

The Giant – Extreme Volume Mascara Waterproof

Velikan – sedaj na voljo tudi v vodoodporni različici. Za izrazit XXL volumen trepalnic. Skrivnost: interakcija edinstvene formule in posebno razvite koničaste mega krtačke. Ozka konica krtačke definira vsako posamezno trepalnico – tudi v kotičkih oči. 24 h vodoodporna tekstura zagotavlja 24 h dolgotrajnega, senzacionalnega volumna.

Ne bom ovinkarila, te maskare ne maram. Krtačka (XXL-krtača) je enostavno čudna in pri meni je samo otežila nanos maskare. Nikakor se nisem navadila nanjo. Ja, dejansko je z ožjim delom dokaj enostavno priti v kotičke in “pobrati” vse trepalnice, a ne razumem, kaj bi naj počel ta širok del krtačke. Mene samo zmede in na koncu se popacam. Pri vsej zadevi je najhuje to, da obljubljajo nek “senzacionalen in izrazit XXL volumen”. Hmm … v moji tubi tega ni bilo (glejte fotografije make up-a). Več volumna dosežem z enim nanosom s svojo priljubljeno maskaro, kot dosežem s tremi nanosi opisane maskare. “The Giant” sicer lepo razčeše trepalnice. Tudi po treh plasteh se trepalnice ne zlepijo. Verjetno je razlog za to v tem, da gre za eno tistih “ta bolj suhih maskar”.

Infinite Shine Lip Gloss – 070 Very Very Raspberry

Nova generacija CATRICE glosov za ustnice za intenziven sijaj in sijoče barve. Zaradi vlažilne formule so ustnice čudovito negovane, brez neprijetnega lepljenja.

S trditvami se popolnoma strinjam. Glos za ustnice daje ustnicam lep lesk, ni lepljiv in zdi se, da so ustnice navlažene. Všeč mi je. Odličen za vsakdanjo uporabo. Ni izredno pigmentiran, ustnice pa nežno obarva (glejte fotografije make up-a). Ni ravno dolgo obstojen, a tega od takšnega tipa glosov (ne lepljivi) niti ni pričakovati.

Swatch: Catrice new products: Spring 2013

Ultimate Colour – 260 It’s A Matt World

Gre za čudovito in živo rdečo mat šminko. Izredno mi je všeč! Odlično pigmentirana (glejte fotografije swatcha, kjer je samo en poteg s šminko), dolgo obstojna, ki ne izsušuje ustnic. Sicer je občutek na ustnicah nekoliko suh (logično, saj gre za mat šminko), a ustnic ne izsušuje. A veste kaj mislim? Zelo všečna šminka.

Absolute Eye Colour – 650 Petrol Shop Boys and 620 Inglorious Mustards

Obe senčili za oči sta dobro pigmentirani. Slabša stran je, da se obe senčili preveč prašita za moj okus. Zlato senčilo obožujem. Očem da ravno pravšnji lesk, če se ga uporabi brez podlage za senčila. Turkizno senčilo me je razočaralo. Sicer je dobro pigmentirano, a izredno hitro zbledi. Pod izredno hitro mislim … že po nekaj minutah je vidno manj barve na koži in deluje neenakomerno ter bledo. Rekla bi, da je razlog za bledenje v izredno pudrasti / prašni teksturi, ki ne dopušča, da bi se pigmenti prijeli drug na drugega, ko se senčilo sloji. Dejansko ga je izredno težko slojiti, saj zgornje plasti zbledijo skoraj takoj. Nakup zlatega senčila priporočam, medtem ko odsvetujem nakup turkiznega, čeprav gre za čudovit odtenek.

Sledi še make up, ki sem ga ustvarila s predstavljenimi izdelki.

Illamasqua Generation Q collection (swatches, review)Illamasqua Generation Q kolekcija (opis, ocena)

Illamasqua had been teasing us with new collection for a while now and the launch is finally around the corner. :cute:
Here is how they described their Generation Q collection:

This new, dynamic range of expressive textures and shades provides the industry’s only antidote to the homogenised outdated vision of beauty. Generation Q is a celebration of beauty. Ageless, and without limits or restrictions. It’s our declaration to the world that beauty is inclusive, not exclusive. In fact, Generation Q is a clear message to everybody, everywhere that beauty is not young, old, black, white, male or female, but anything, everything and everyone. If you’re someone who does not want age to define them, don’t want to blend in and fade away, you are Generation Q.

We received 3 of the coming products (Creator, Allure, Boost) to play with, test and write a review. As usually, you’ll get the cut and dry description with swatches from me and something more playful from Maestra. :silly:

Illamasqua Generation Q collection

Illamasqua Creator nail polish is black based shade with ton of silver glitter loaded into it. Like most of the seriously glittery nail polishes, this one too does not dry into high gloss finish, but top coat solves that problem … if you could even call it that. Application was non problematic and if you’re not fussy one coat can be enough. I used 2 coats of Creator and 2 coats of top coat.

Illamasqua Allure powder blush comes in hard to describe brownish shade and is packed with mostly goldish shimmer. Color I liked – it’s one of those sophisticated hades that look really good on those of us who are pale and as it’s highly pigmented, I’m guessing it will probably show up on darker tones too. It does have some kind of undertone I’m just not sure what kind of color is this – terracottish? :biggrin:
Shimmer is not hugely noticeable on cheeks but I prefer my blushes to be matte or with really subtle finish so I didn’t wear this shade enough to tell you about staying power … it did stayed put for the few hours I had it on.

Illamasqua Boost Intense Lipgloss surprised me with its formula. Easy to apply, good staying power, nice non-sticky feel on lips, nice and not overpowering fruity smell … Color is not something I would usually wear as I don’t feel comfortable with cooler tones on my lips, but this one is not so pigmented to really bother me.

Some of the items are already available in their on-line store – like 2 of my favorites from this collection … Gleam in Aurora and Complement palette. :love:

OK, OK – I confess … I have Charisma and Magnetism on my WL too. :biggrin:

Which one is your favorite from Illamasqua Generation Q collection? How do you like their genderless campaign?

Takole so pri Illamasqui opisali Generation Q kolekcijo:

Prejele smo 3 izdelke (Creator, Allure, Boost) za igranje, testiranje in v oceno. Kot ponavadi vam bom najprej jaz predstavila suhoparne swatche, medtem ko vam bo Maestra postregla s kakšnim bolj igrivim postom. :silly:

Illamasqua Generation Q collection

Illamasqua Creator lak za nohte je sestavljen iz črne baze in velike količine srebrnih bleščic. Tako kot večina bleščičastih lakov, se tudi ta ne posuši v lak z visokim leskom. Vendar ta problemček (če mu lahko sploh tako rečemo), hitro odpravimo z nadlakom. Nanos je bil neproblematičen in če niste pretirano natančne, vam bo za mogoče zadostovala že ena plast … lak je namreč dobro pigmentiram. Uporabila sem 2 plasti Creator laka in 2 plasti nadlaka.

Illamasqua Allure rdečilo v kamnu je nedoločljive rjave barve in nabito s pretežno zlatim šimrom. Barva mi je bila všeč, eleganten rjav odtenek, ki pristoji moji svetli polti. Ima sicer specifičen podton, ki pa ga ne znam najbolje opisati – mogoče rahlo opečnat/terracotta odtenek? :think:
Šimer je na licih manj opazen kot v embalaži, vendar ga je za moj okus še vedno preveč. Ker mi finiš ni najbolje sedel, ga nisem veliko uporabljala, tako da ne morem povedati veliko o obstojnosti … nekaj ur zagotovo zdrži, več ga pa nisem imela gor.

Illamasqua Boost Intense Lipgloss me je zelo prijetno presenetil s svojo formulo. Enostaven za nanos (čopič mogoče ni najbolj po mojem okusu), dolgo se obdrži na ustnicah, ni lepljiv, z nežnim sadnim vonjem … Barva ni nekaj kar bi si sama izbrala. Enostavno se ne počutim prijetno s hladnimi toni na ustnicah. Po drugi strani pa glos ni zelo pigmentiran, tako da me to niti ni tako zelo motilo, ko bi me sicer.

Maestra’s Favorite Summer Products: lipsticks, lipglosses and blushesMaestrini najljubši izdelki za poletje: šminke, lipglossi in rdečila za lica

Part three of my favorite products for summer. Today I’m going to show you my favorite lipsticks, lipglosses and blushes.

Lipsticks and lipglosses

Maestra's Summer Favorites (July 2012): lip products
Maestra's Summer Favorites (July 2012): lip products

IsaDora Jelly Kiss lipstick in the shade 57 Coral Punch is a simple and nice products by IsaDora. It’s a very glossy lipstick and it’s not very pigmented but still pigmented enough to give my lips a flush of color. It is buildable. It feels very nice on the lips. It was also part of the summer 2012 set.

Kiko lipstick in the shade 62. I’m not sure which line this lipstick is from. It was on sale when I bought it, so I’m not sure if it is still available. It is a nice almost duochrome lipstick with metallic finish (at least that’s how I would describe the finish, although I’m really not an expert when it comes to lipstick). I know this might sound odd, but I somehow like it. It looks nice with a bronze make up look. It’s a red lipstick with a twist. I’m wearing this lipstick in the FOTD photo below. The photo was taken a while ago, that’s why my skin is a lot paler than in the swatch photos that were taken a just couple of days ago.

IsaDora Sun Protecting Lip Gloss with SPF 8 in the shade 21 Apricot Pink is a very sheer lipsgloss with tiny shimmer. Very simple and nice product.

Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss in the shade Intimacy is a very nice nude lipgloss with shimmer. Read the whole review HERE.

Blushes

I’m a huge fan of blushes and I always wear a blush if I wear make up. These are the ones that I wear the most at the moment.

Artdeco Blusher – Dita Von Teese in the shade 09 Ingenue is a soft peach color with matte finish. Yes, it is completely matte. The texture is very smooth and nice. The pigmentation is good. I love to combine it with the Zygomatic cream blusher by Illamasqua. They look beautiful together.

MAC Mineralize Blush in the shade Moon River. I don’t think this one is still available. I bought it a couple of years ago and didn’t use it a lot, because it is (or at least it was) too shimmery and shiny for my taste. I’ve always loved the pink-coral side of the blush and that’s why I have always came back to it. This summer even the finish grew on me and I’ve been wearing it lot in the past couple of weeks. I apply it with a fluffy brush, so it doesn’t look to frosty on my cheeks.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in the shade Tipsy is very vivid coral blush, that is very pigmented. This blush is not for blush-shy people. Because it’s super pigmented you have to be very careful when you apply it. I would say it’s almost too pigmented for a blush (if that’s even possible). If you just started wearing blushes I would recommend you start with some blushes that are less pigmented, just so you get used to blushes and how to apply them. Otherwise this blush is wonderful. The color is very pretty (if I’m not mistaken I’m wearing it in the FOTD photo above).

Maestra's Summer Favorites (July 2012): lip products

IsaDora Jelly Kiss šminka v odtenku 57 Coral Punch je popolnoma nezakompliciran in lušten izdelek. Šminka je zelo glossy in ni zelo pigmentirana, še vedno pa moje ustnice lepo obarva. Z večimi sloji se lahko doseže večjo prekrivnost. Občutek na ustnicah je izredno prijeten. Šminko sem kupila v setu. Cena za set je bila ugodna.

Kiko šminka v odtenku 62. Nisem prepričana, v katero linijo spada ta šminka. Kupila sem jo na znižanju in niti ne vem, ali je šminka še v prodaji. Šminka ima skoraj duochrome effect (prelivanje med rdečo in oranžno-rjavo) in metalik finiš (vsaj tako bi jaz opisala finiš, čeprav nisem ravno ekspert za šminke). Morda se bere nenavadno, a šminka mi je dejansko zelo všeč. Lepo izgleda v kombinaciji z zagorelim videzom ustvarjenim z bronzerjem. Nekako netipično rdeča šminka, ki me je pozitivno presenetila. Šminko nosim na FOTD fotografiji spodaj. Fotografijo sem posnela že nekaj časa nazaj, zato moja koža izgleda veliko bolj svetlo kot na swatch fotografijah, ki so bile narejene pred nekaj dnevi.

IsaDora Sun Protecting Lip Gloss s SPF 8 v odtenku 21 Apricot Pink je zelo prosojen lipgloss z mini šimrom. Ponovno … nezakompliciran izdelek, ki pa svoje delo zelo dobro opravi. Ustnice obda z lepim leskom, hkrati pa jih malenkost zaščiti pred soncem.

Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss v odtenku Intimacy je kožno obarvan lipglos s šimorm. Swatche in opis izdelka si lahko preberete TUKAJ.

Rdečila za lica

Rdečila za lica obožujem in menim, da z izbiro primernega rdečila za lica lahko prav vsak obraz v trenutku izgleda spočit in zdrav. Podlaga za obraz, rdečilo za lica in maskara so trije make up izdelki, katerim bi se najtežje odrekla. Mislim, da bi se še maskari prej odrekla kot rdečilu za lica. Jap, tako zelo obožujem obarvana lička. :w00t: Trenutno največkrat posežem po naslednjih.

Artdeco Blusher – Dita Von Teese v odtenku 09 Ingenue je zelo nežno breskove barve z mat finišem. Rdečilo ne vsebuje popolnoma nobenega šimra. Tekstura je mehka, pigmentiranost dobra. Rdečilo rada kombiniram z Zygomatic krem senčilo od Illamasque. Skupaj izgledata zelo lepo.

MAC Mineralize Blush v odtenku Moon River. Mislim, da tole rdečilo ni več na voljo. Kupila sem ga pred leti in ga nisem veliko uporabljala, ker mi je (bilo) preveč šimrasto. Pink-koralna stran blusha mi je bila zmeraj izredno všeč, zato na to rdečilo nikoli nisem pozabila, šele letošnje poletje pa ga resnično nekoliko več uporabljam. Nanašam ga s košatim čopičem, ker se mi zdi, da se tako še najbolj izognem frosty izgledu.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush v odtenku Tipsy je zelo žive koralne barve in izredno pigmentiran. Definitivno ni za blush sramežljivce. Ker je zelo pigmentiran, je potrebna še posebna previdnost pri nanosu. Rekla bi, da je za blush skoraj preveč pigmentiran (če je to sploh mogoče). Če ste še novi pri rdečilih, vam priporočam, da začnete z rdečili, ki so manj pigmentirana, saj s takšnimi rdečili veliko težje nanesete preveč izdelka in se s tem izognete klovnskemu videzu. Sicer je Tipsy blush krasen. Barva čudovita. Potrebna je samo lahka roka in primeren čopič. (Če se ne motim, nosim točno to rdečilo na fotografiji zgoraj.)

Wow – IsaDora SPF set was bargain when it was 7,15 EUR but now it’s a steal at 3,99 EUR. :w00t:

I bought it because I desperately needed cream contouring product and as Maestra loves IsaDora Sun Protecting Compact Foundation with SPF 25, I decided to get one too. :cute:

I got set no. 2 with: IsaDora Sun Protecting Compact Foundation with SPF 25 in Brown (no. 53) (little bit cooler brown than in swatch), Sun Protecting Lipstick in Cool Pink with SPF 12 and Sun Protection Pearly Gloss in Pearly Pink with SPF 8.

I love IsaDora sets as they give me opportunity to try out their products at fraction of the cost and they really endeared the brand to me as I now always check their stand to see what is new and I know I can find interesting and almost scent free quality products. So I would say that their promotions for getting rid of items that are not “in” anymore or are on their way out in this way got them at least one new customer. :silly:


I was debating which video to make first, but as I had no preference, I decided to leave the choice to you. :rose:

[poll id=”12″]UAU – IsaDora SPF set je bil že pri 7,15 EUR dobra kupčija, zdaj so ga pa še pocenili in stane 3,99 EUR. :w00t:

Kupila sem ga predvsem, ker nujno potrebujem nekaj kremnega za senčenje obraza in ker Maestra ljubi IsaDora Sun Protecting Compact Foundation (SPF 25), sem si seveda tudi jaz omislila le tega. :cute:

Kupila sem set št. 02, ki vsebuje: IsaDora Sun Protecting Compact Foundation (SPF 25) v odtenku Brown (št. 53) (ni tako topel kot na swatchu), Sun Protecting Lipstick Cool Pink (SPF 12) šminko in Sun Protection Pearly Gloss Pearly Pink (SPF 8) glos.

Občutek na obrazu/ustnicah je dober, kaj več pa nimam za povedati po prvi uporabi. :silly:

IsaDorini seti so mi izredno ljubi, ker lahko na zelo ugoden način preizkusim njihove izdelke. Ravno seti so mi predstavili IsaDoro kot znamko, ki ima kvalitetne proizvode, ki ustrezajo moji občutljivi koži (dostikrat so skoraj brez vonja). Meni je všeč eleganten način odpisa izdelkov, ki niso več in ali pa gredo iz prodaje … včasih pa mislim, da so na voljo tudi še aktualni izdelki v mini verziji. Vsekakor se sedaj redno ustavim pred njihovim stojalom, tako da so s takimi akcijami pridobili vsaj eno stranko. :silly:

Set sem kupila v Mullerju na Čopovi, kjer imajo tudi testerje izdelkov v kompletih … nahajajo pa se nasproti IsaDora stojala.


In ker sem trenutno v dilemi kateri filmček naj najprej posnamem, prepuščam odločitev vam. :rose:

Illamasqua – Naked Stranger – Intimacy and Zygomatic (review, swatches)Illamasqua – Naked Stranger – Intimacy in Zygomantic (opis, ocena)

Naked Stranger is the name of the newest collection by Illamasqua. It mostly consists of natural colors – pink-beige and brown. There’s also gold color involved, just to make it more interesting. Here are the products that I’d like to show you.

I have a cream blush kick lately and I have to tell you that it isn’t easy to get a good cream blush. I tried quite a lot of them and most of them are either too greasy or/and not pigmented enough or they are not easy to apply. That’s why I was eager to try the Illamasqua cream blush. Zygomatic is wonderful pink brown color. I love the color! It’s also nicely pigmented and very easy to apply. It looks very natural on the skin. This is now one of my favorite cream blushes (besides my beloved Bobbi Brown one).

The color of Zygomatic immediately reminded me of Illamasqua’s Ambition blush. Ambition is powder blush with gold shimmer, but the base color is very similar to the Zygomantic blush. Ambition blush was one of my favorite natural looking blush so far and now Zygomatic is even better, because it’s cream and it has no shimmer to it.

Sheer lipgloss in Intimacy is another great product. The gloss is sticky like all Illamasqua lipglosses and it’s quite long lasting. I love the lipgloss because the color is (again) wonderful. It looks really natural on my lips. And the shimmer gives it depth. I didn’t know that Illamasqua changed the packaging of (sheer) lipglosses. I didn’t like the old packaging, so I’m very happy that they changed it.

*I received items for review from Illamasqua

Naked Stranger je ime najnovejše kolekcije znamke Illamasqua. V kolekciji prevladujejo naravne barve – pink-bež in rjava. Vpletena je tudi zlata, ki poskrbi za sijaj. Preizkusila sem dva izdelka, ki bi vam ju rada pokazala.

Zadnje čase sem čisto nora na krem rdečila za lica in moram vam povedati, da nikakor ni enostavno najti dober krem blush. Preizkusila sem jih že kar nekaj in večina med njimi je ali preveč mastnih in/ali niso dovolj pigmentirana ali pa se ne dajo (enostavno) lepo nanesti. Ravno zaradi vsega naštetega sem komaj čakala, da preizkusim še Illamasqua krem blush. Zygomatic je prečudovite pink rjave barve. Barvo obožujem! Blush je dobro pigmentiran in enostaven za nanašat. Na koži izgleda izredno naravno. Sedaj je to eden mojih najljubših krem blushev (poleg mojega preljubega Bobbi Brownovega).

Barva blusha Zygomatic me je takoj spomnila na Ambition rdečilo znamke Illamasqua. Ambition je rdečilo kamnu in ima zlat šimer, vendar je osnovna barva izredno podobna barvi Zygomantic blusha. Ambition je bil do sedaj eden mojih najljubših naravno izgledajočih blushev, a Zygomantic je še boljši, ker je krem in brez šimra.

Prosojen glos za ustnice v odtenku Intimacy je še en odličen izdelek iz kolekcije Naked Stranger. Glos je lepljiv (kot vsi Illamasqua glosi) in dokaj dolgo obstojen na ustnicah. Glos mi je izredno všeč, ker je barvno zelo posrečen in na mojih ustnicah izgleda res zelo naravno. Za globino poskrbi šimer. Pozitivno me je presenetila embalaža. Nisem vedela, da so spremenili embalažo (prosojnih) glosov. Stara embalaža mi tako ni bila všeč, zato sem samo vesela, da so jo spremenili.
