Orly Oh Cabana Boy nail polishOrly Oh Cabana Boy lak za nohte

I bet you didn’t expect to see this kind of hot pink on my nails. And let me tell you something – Orly Oh Cabana Boy nail polish turned out to be major attraction while sitting on my “to swatch shelf”. Everybody noticed it right away and wondered how come I have this bold and vibrant shade and all other shades are well, not … I put it side by side with 2 taupe Anny shades to make matters worse. :biggrin:

Orly Oh Cabana Boy nail polish

I was skeptic about this shade as pinks with blue flashes usually look really horrible on me, but for some reason this one enhanced slight tan and made my whole hands look feminine and playful at the same time. Not bad for one of my least favorite colors. :silly:

Application was not problematic, brush perfect as always and 2 layers are enough too achieve decent coverage (tips are still visible).

To be perfectly honest, I don’t really know why do I have so few of Orly nail polishes in my collection. I’m satisfied with quality of all of them and I think of Orly as one of the better brands out there. Maybe I don’t really digg their colors choices? On the other hand I kind of fell in love into Sparkling Garbage (hate the name though :silly: ) from new LE. :wub:

Price: 10 EUR for 18ml.

In any case, I would like to thank Orly Slovenia for sending me this nail polish to test it out. :rose: They threw me out of my comfort zone, but at the right time and with surprisingly good color. :cute:

Se grem stavit, da niste pričakovale takšne živo roza barve na mojih nohtih. :silly: Orly Oh Cabana Boy lak je bil prava atrakcija na moji “čaka swatchanje” polički – čisto vsi so se vtaknili vanj in spraševali od kdaj imam pa jaz tako žive lake. Seveda ni pomagalo niti dejstvo, da sem ga dala poleg dveh rjavih Anny lakov.  :biggrin:

Orly Oh Cabana Boy nail polish

Priznam, da sem bila kar skeptična glede kombinacije tako živo roza fuksijastega odtenka in moje polti. Ponavadi roza laki z modrim sijajem izgledajo grozno na meni. Iz nekega razloga, je tale odtenek moje roke lepo poživil, v ospredje postavil rahlo temnejšo polt (mogoče mi pa ravno zato paše), ter pričaral rokam ženstven, a igriv, videz. Dober izkupiček za eno meni najmanj ljubih barv. :silly:

Nanos ni bil problematičen, čopič kot vedno na nivoju, 2 plasti ne prekrijeta konic, a vseeno je bila prekrivnost spodobna.

Iskreno rečeno se mi še sanja ne, zakaj imam v zbirki tako malo Orly lakov. Z vsemi, ki sem jih kupila, sem zadovoljna in jih po kvaliteti uvrščam med boljše lake. Mogoče mi barve nekako ne ležijo? Me pa definitivno mika Sparkling Garbage (ime mi sicer ni niti najmanj všeč :silly: ) iz nove LE. :wub:

Cena: 10 EUR za 18ml.

Vsekakor bi se rada zahvalila Orly Slovenia, ki mi je poslal lak v testiranje. :rose: Sicer so me čisto vrgli iz ustaljenih tirnic s tole rozo barvo, a je prišla ob pravem času in se celo barvno obnesla. :cute:

Black and gray Flakies Pink Sheer

NOTD: Catrice – Rest In The Forest (Siberian Call LE) & confessionNOTD: Catrice – Rest In The Forest (Siberian Call LE) & izpoved

Here it is … Catrice – Rest In The Forest nail polish from the newest Limited Edition called Siberian Call. Rest In The Forest has a sheer taupe base with glass flecked shimmer. The shimmer is duochrome and changes color from pink-purple to gold. I like the taupe base because it makes the polish look a bit “dirty”. The polish is sheer. If you like sheer polishes, this one looks pretty even with only one coat. I do not mind a bit of VNL (visible nail line) on my very short nails, so I used two coats. If you have long nails and do not like VNL, you’ll need at least three coats for a decent coverage or you can layer it over a nude color.

When I look at my photos, I do not like this polish very much. :biggrin: Do I even have to say that it looks prettier in real life?!? :nails: For my warm / yellow skin tone if falls into the “nude but different” category.

My confession: I’ve been neglecting my nails and cuticles in the past few months or so. :blush: I didn’t even bother to paint them regularly. Is this a nail polish depression or just “I have other things on my mind”? A little bit of both I’d say. And to be honest I do not care. I paint my nails when I feel like doing so and I’ve come to the point where I only buy polishes that I truly like and do not buy them because I feel like I need them all. I guess, only the true addicts (or collectors) will understand what I am talking about. :biggrin:

That was my nails of the day and a short confession of what is going on with my nails. :nails: I’ll tell you a bit more about what is happening in my life and why I’ve been MIA lately in another post.

Happy polishing to everyone! :nails:

Evo ga … Catrice – Rest In The Forest lak za nohte iz zadnje omejene kolekcije, ki se imenuje Siberian Call. Rest In The Forest ima prosojno sivo-rjavo osnovo in “drobcena stekelca”, ki spreminjajo barvo iz roza-vijolične v zlato. Sivo-rjava osnova mi je všeč, saj lak naredi malo drugačen in izgleda rahlo umazano. :biggrin: Kot sem omenila, ima prosojno osnovo. Lak bo primeren za tiste, ki radi nosijo prosojne lake, saj izgleda lepo tudi samo z enim slojem. Jaz sem nanesla dva. Po dveh nanosih je na mojih kratkih nohtih še zmeraj opaziti konico nohta, kar mene osebno ne moti. Vsi, ki ne prenesete pogleda na opazno konico nohta, boste morali nanesti vsaj tri plasti ali pa lak slojiti čez bež ali sivo-rjavo podlago.

Ko tako gledam svoje fotografije, mi lak sploh ni všeč. :biggrin: Rada bi dodala, da lak izgleda lepše v živo. :nails: Pri moji topli / rumeni polti pade lak v kategorijo “nude, a drugačen”.

In še moja izpoved: Svoje nohte in obnohtno kožico sem v zadnjem času resnično zanemarjala. :blush: Sploh se nisem trudila, da bi nohte redno lakirala. Ali gre tukaj za lak depresijo ali pa se mi samo dogajajo druge reči v življenju? Rekli bi, da gre za mešanico obojega. In če sem iskrena, me sploh ne moti. Nohte lakiram, ko mi je volja in prišla sem tako daleč, da kupujem resnično samo lake, ki so mi všeč in so vredni nakupa, in ne več vsega, kar mi pride pod prste. Verjetno vsi ne boste razumeli, o čem pišem, a tisti pravi zasvojenci (oz. zbiratelji) bodo morda razumeli. :biggrin:

To so bili moji nohti dneva in kratka izpoved, kaj se trenutno dogaja z mojimi nohti. :nails: Verjetno vam bom v katerem od prihodnjih prispevkov na kratko napisala, kaj se dogaja v mojem življenju in zakaj tako redko pišem.

Srečno lakiranje! :nails:

Kiko Lavish Oriental LE (review, swatches)Kiko Lavish Oriental LE (opis, ocena)

4 holographic nail polishes in Kiko’s newest limited edition? Italy, here I come. :biggrin:
And as I was already there, one Colour Seduction eyeshadow palette ended up in my cart too. :cute:

Kiko Lavish Oriental haul

I guess you could say Kiko Peacock Green (no. 401) is the shade closest to my heart. And as it usually happens I swatched this beauty when the weather was more or less cloudy, so the holographic effect is not as pronounced as in real life. On second photo I stamped with Steel Gray over Peacock Green and the sun was more cooperative which means holo is more realistic. Color is more blue (swatches) in some lighting and green (video) in others.

Kiko Silk Taupe (no. 399) is little bit weirdish but pretty color. If active, holo particles make it almost golden and if not it becomes more cooler/silverish toned taupe(?).

Kiko Steel Grey (no. 400) reminds me of this comparison of gray holo nail polishes, but in lighter version. This one seemed to be the most pigmented, that is why I decided to stamp with it over Peacock Green.

Kiko Lavish Oriental nail polish 400 - Steel Grey

My least favorite is Kiko Jewel Pink (no. 402). A) it’s pink, B) holo effect is pretty weak … and I can forgive the second one. :silly: Joking aside it’s not bad pink at all, but in my eyes it pales in comparison with other 3 shades.

All four Kiko Lavish Oriental polishes can be applied over regular base coat, but if you use water based one, the application will be pure poetry. I used 2 coats for all the swatches.
They dry in almost satin finish which is not my favorite in holographic nail polishes, so I added one layer of Essence Better Than Gel nails Top Sealer … and that actually made the holo effect stronger. :thumb:

I like the fact that even-though holo effect is there and visible, you’re not left with silver nail polish in the shade.

All of the Kiko Colour Seduction eyeshadow palettes looked tempting, but no. 01 an 02 drew me the most. First with great color combination for quick everyday makeup and second with welcoming warm tones.
In the end I chose no.2 … Sensuous Burgundy. Colors are really rich and inviting, especially the burgundy eyeshadow. :love: The only thing missing in this palette is true highlighting color to make it outstanding. And it does how one other major downside – shelf-life is only 6 months … which is why I’m storing it in the fridge. :nervous:
So far I used it only once for whole-day makeup and I have no complaints … jet. :silly:
Swatches are made with brush over eyeshadow base in 2 thicker layers.

Štirje holografski laki v najnovejši Kiko kolekciji? Sem že prištimana, kdaj odrinemo v Italijo? :biggrin:
In če sem že bila v trgovini, bi bil greh, da ne bi z menoj odšla še vsaj ena Colour Seduction paletka senčil za oči. :cute:

Kiko Lavish Oriental haul

Lahko bi rekli, da je Kiko Peacock Green (št. 401) še najbližje mojem idealnem odtenku. I kot se to seveda rado zgodi, je bilo vreme ravno v času, ko sem nosila ta odtenek pretežno oblačno. Naslednji dan sem mu dodala še vzorec narejen s Steel Grey lakom kjer je holo efekt malo lepše viden. Barva je lahko bolj modra (swatchi) ali zelena (video) … odvisno od tipa svetlobe.

Kiko Silk Taupe (št. 399) je sicer rahlo čudaški odtenek, a vseeno lep lakec. Če je holografski efekt aktiviran, potem se obarva v skoraj zlat odtenek, medtem ko je v senci precej bolj srebrn.

Kiko Steel Grey (št. 400) me je takoj spomnil na primerjavo sivih holo lakov, ki sem jo naredila pred časom … le da gre tukaj za svetlejši odtenek. Ta odtenek se mi zdel še najbolj pigmentiran, zato sem ga uporabila za konadikuro čez Peacock Green.

Meni pogrešljiv odtenek bi bil Kiko Jewel Pink (št. 402). A) roza je, B) holo efekt je najmanj viden … in drugo točko mu še lahko oprostim. :silly: Šalo na stran, ne gre za grd roza odtenek, vendar pa lak nekako zbledi, ko je postavljen ob bok ostalim trem.

Vse štiri Kiko Lavish Oriental lake za nohte je možno nanesti čez navaden podlak, vendar pa toplo priporočam uporabo podlaka na vodni osnovi, ker je le takrat nanos poezija.
Na vseh swatchih sem uporabila 2 plasti.
Laki se posušijo v rahlo satenast finiš, ki meni ne gre ravno skupaj s holo laki, zato sem jim dodala še eno plast Essence Better Than Gel nails Top Sealer nadlaka … ki je še okrepil holo efekt. :thumb:

Zelo mi je všeč dejstvo, da laki kljub močnemu holografskemu finišu, v senči še vedno obdržijo barvo … in ne postanejo čisto sivi.

Kiko Lavish Oriental holographic nail polishes

Čisto vse Kiko Colour Seduction palete so izgledale mamljivo, vendar sta me št. 01 in 02 najbolj pritegnili. Prva z zelo uporabnim izborom barv za vsakodnevno ličenje, druga pa s svojimi toplimi toni.
Na koncu sem izbrala št. 02 … Sensuous Burgundy. Barve so enostavno tako tople in bogate, da se jim enostavno nisem mogla upreti. Edino kar pogrešam v paletki, je dobra barva za osvetljevanje. Imajo pa palete eno veliko pomanjkljivost – rok trajanja po odprtju je le 6 mesecev. Mojo hranim kar v hladilniku in upam na daljšo življenjsko dobo. :nervous:
Do sedaj sem jo samo 1x uporabila za celodnevni makeup in nimam pripomb … za enkrat. :silly:
Senčila sem nanesla s čopičem čez bazo v dveh debelejših plasteh.

Depend 202, 228, 218, 5000 nail polish swatchesDepend 202, 228, 218, 5000 laki za nohte

You already had a chance to meet Depend nail polishes on our blog … and we own even more but they’re still on to be swatched shelf or to be publishes folder … depending on which Parokeet lady you are talking to. :silly: Majority of Depend nail polishes comes with good formula, staying power and pigmentation. The only thing that bugs me is that they are numbered and not named.

Today I have swatches of 4 of their nail polishes and if you like what you see … be sure to read the end very carefully. :biggrin:

Depend 202, 228, 218, 5000 nail polishes
Depend 202, 228, 218, 5000 nail polishes

Depend 228 and 218 have very similar formula and silver shimmer. The only real difference is the base color – 228 has blue and 218 pink one. Drying speed is optimal for me, with little bit thicker layer they can be one coater. Staying power was also good. I used 2 coats + top coat.

I applied Depend 202, wore it and swatched it, but I noticed the shimmer only after I was going through close up photos. :biggrin: 202 has thicker formula, dried little bit slower than the first two. Formula is little bit on the jelly side, but still with good pigmentation … but not great one, so I used little bit thicker coats than I normally would. In general I find application with even slightly jelly-ish nail polishes to be nerve wracking if I don’t use thicker layers. Color is purple with mainly cooler undertones, but in warm light it does get that warmer pinkish undertone.

The last nail polish I have for you is white crackle named Depend 5000. It works just like other Depend crackle nail polishes – cracks without problem, thiner layer for smaller cracks, thicker for larger ones. I applied it over Depend 218, 202 and 228.

How do you like Depend nail polishes? Tried any of the treatments? I still have to take a look at that part of their stand.

*we received items for review and giveaway from Depend SloveniaNekaj Depend lakov za nohte smo že objavile na blogu … še več pa jih ali čaka na swatchanje ali pa swatchi samevajo na računalniku … odvisno od tega s katero Parokeetko govorite. :silly: Večina Depend lakov ima dobro formulo, obstojnost ter pigmentiranost. Edina zadeva, ki me mori je to, da so laki oštevilčeni in ne poimenovani.

Danes imam za vas swatche 4ih njihovih odtenkov. In če so vam lakci všeč … ne preskočite konca posta. :biggrin:

Depend 202, 228, 218, 5000 nail polishes

Depend 228 in 218 imata zelo podobno formulo in srebrn šimer. Razlika je le v osnovni barvi – 228 je moder, 218 pa roza. Čas sušenja je zame optimalen, če uporabim rahlo debelejšo plast, pa sta laka prekrivna že s prvo plastjo. Obstojnost je na meni dobra. Uporabila sem 2 plasti + nadlak.

Depend 202 sem nanesla, nosila, fotografirala, a da vsebuje šimer sem opazila šele, ko sem pregledovala swatche. :biggrin: 202 ima gostejšo formulo in se malo počasneje suši. Formula je rahlo želejasta, a je še vedno OK pigmentirana. Pri vseh lakih, ki imajo takšno formulo, uporabim debelejše plasti, če ne me čisto spravijo ob živce. :cute: Vijola lak ima večino časa hladnejši podton, vendar so v določenih pogojih vidni tudi toplejši podtoni. 2 plasti + nadlak.

Zadnji lak spada v kategorijo cracklov. Gre za belega razpokančka z imanom Depend 5000. Deluje enako kot ostali Depend crackli, ki sem jih preizkusila – dobro razpoka, tanjši sloji za več manjših razpok in debelejši za večje razpoke. Nanesla sem ga čez Depend 218, 202 in 228 lake.

Essence Miami Roller Girl TE (swatch, review)Essence Miami Roller Girl TE

I made a pit stop in Muller just to pick up some milk and stumbled upon full Essence Miami Roller Girl TE. What is girl suppose to do if not buy all four nail polishes and a blush. :silly:

Essence Miami Roller Girl TE

I’ll start with the prettiest product – Essence Dates On Skates blush. This was pure and simple love at first sight – gradient form orange to pink, great pigmentation, lots of product, no shimmer … :drop: With little bit of patience (and right brush) you can get 3 colors out of this blush – orange, coral, pink.

Essence Miami Roller Girl TE - Dates On Skates blush

Or you can blend all of them together to get coral shade which can lean to the orange or pink side. One of the things I’ve been reading on-line is that the blush is for some too pigmented or looks cakey. Real Techniques Blush brush applied this blush without any problems and pigmentation (too much product) can be easily modified with first blending the brush on your hand, tissue …

Nail polishes are not bad, but nothing really special or even something I need, but I guess you can never have enough cream shades for nail art fun. :cute: Brushes and bottles are similar to the Catrice ones.

Essence Miami P’Ink is shockingly my fave. Don’t ask … I’m just hoping I’m not about to get ill. :silly: It’s nice bright pink which I prefer when the undertone starts to lean to the coralish side … and that does not happen often. Application was easy, full coverage, 2 coats + top coat.

Essence Miami Roller Girl TE - Miami Pink

Essence Four Wheel Drive is one of those tricky colors just in between pink and purple … but as it looks more purplish (more purple IRL than on the photo) on me I’ll classify it as purple. :angel: It can be a one coater, formula is on the thicker side. My brush is little bit weirdly cut, but can be worked with. 2 coats + top coat.

Looking for cream yellow which is not that bad to apply? Then you should check out Essence Bienvenido A Miami. It’s one of the least primadona yellows I have met so far. Not piece of cake to apply, but in comparison with majority of other yellow nail polishes out there … OK application (especially if you load the brush). Bienvenido A Miami has good coverage, has slight orangy undertone, with second coat, you get even application.

Essence Miami Roller Girl TE - Bienvenido A Miami

Essence Miami Heat is pretty neutral creme orange shade. This one was the least pigmented of the bunch, but coverage was still not so sheer that VNL would be visible. 2coats + top coat.

Who else bought the blush? Any problems with it?
Planiran je bil samo hiter postanek v Mullerju, da poberem mleko, vendar me je pričakalo polno Essence Miami Roller Girl TE stojalo, tako da sem hočeš nočeš morala kupiti vse lake in rdečilo. :silly:

Essence Miami Roller Girl TE
Essence Miami Roller Girl TE

Začnimo z najlepšim izdelkom – Essence Dates On Skates rdečilom. Tole je bila pa ljubezen na prvi pogled – zelo pigmentirano, prelivanje barv iz oranžne na roza, brez šimra … :drop: Z malo potrpljenja in pravim čopičem, lahko dobite ven tri različne barve. – oranžno, koralno, roza.

Essence Miami Roller Girl TE - Dates On Skates blush
Essence Miami Roller Girl TE – Dates On Skates rdečilo (swatch)

Lahko pa jih zmešate in dobite koralen odtenek, ki vleče rahlo na roza ali oranžno stran. Mogoče bi omenila še to, da sem brala o težavah, ki so jih drugi imeli z rdečilom – pravijo, da je preveč praškasto in pigmentirano. Real Techniques Blush čopič je zelo lepo opravil nalogo, odvečnega prahu/barve pa se ponavadi rešim z vtiranjem čopiča na roki ali robčku.

Laki za nohte sicer niso slabi, a istočasno tudi niso nič posebnega … nekaj, kar bi nujno morala imeti v zbirki. Po drugi strani pa ni krem baz nikoli zadosti, če se rad igraš z nail artom. :cute: Zanimivost – stekleničke in čopiči so zelo podobni tistim iz Catrice redne linije.

Moj favorit je presenetljivo Essence Miami P’Ink. Ammm – upam, da me ne nič ne loteva. :silly: Gre za lušten, živahen roza odtenek, ki ima občasno skoraj koralen podton … in takrat mi je lak tudi najlepši. Nanos neproblematičen, popolna prekrivnost, 2 plasti + nadlak.

Essence Miami Roller Girl TE - Miami Pink
Essence Miami Roller Girl TE – Miami Pink swatch

Essence Four Wheel Drive je ravno na meji med roza in vijola barvo, vendar je na meni vseeno bolj vijola (še malo bolj kot na swatchu). :angel: Za popolno prekrivnost zadostuje že ena plast, formula je malo bolj gosta. Moj čopič je slabo prirezan, vendar je še vedno uporaben. 2 plasti + nadlak.

Essence Miami Roller Girl TE - Four Wheel Drive

Iščete krem rumen lak, ki se ne naša kot nočna mora … pa še prekriven mora biti? Potem mogoče poglejte, če je še vedno na voljo Essence Bienvenido A Miami. Še vedno ne moremo govoriti o enostavnem nanosu (priporočam zadosti laka na čopiču), vendar je ena manjših primadon na sceni. Bienvenido A Miami je dobro prekriven, ima občasno rahlo ornžkast podton, z drugo plastjo se lepo prekrije vse napake prve plasti.

Essence Miami Roller Girl TE - Bienvenido A Miami
Essence Miami Roller Girl TE – Bienvenido A Miami swatch

Essence Miami Heat je dokaj nevtralen krem oranžen odtenek. Lak je bil še najmanj pigmentiran izmed vseh Miami Roller Girl odtenkov, a še vedno prekrije konice. 2 plasti + nadlak.

Nfu-Oh Neon Nail Polish: 214, 230, 231 and 244Nfu-Oh Neon laki za nohte: 214, 230, 231 in 244

Seeing all the lovely cheerful colors all around me, reminded me that I still haven’t published my Nfu-Oh Neon Series nail polish swatches. I bought them couple of years ago with bunch of other Nfu-Oh nail polishes in Tallinn.

Nfu_Oh_Neon

Nfu Oh Neon Series
Nfu-Oh Neon Series nail polishes: 214, 230, 231, 244

I love Nfu-Oh bottles and polishes hiding inside them. Neon series is just the thing for summer manicures. The only thing that bothered me was the white sediment at the bottom of the bottle. But it goes away after you shake the nail polish.

I don’t have anything special to report about these polishes. All of the them were applied in two coats. Only exception is lilac 214 shade which needed 3 coats.

Neon effect is not as heavy duty as in China Glaze, Color Club … but they’re still pretty, right? :nails:

While I was preparing my Nfu-Oh shopping list at the time, I wanted to have all of them … now I almost don’t use them. I’m not sure why is that. But as I’m looking at the swatches, I’m tempted to use them. Hope you like them. :angel:

Enjoy in the summer colors! :wave:Živahne barve poletja so me “opomnile”, da še nisem objavila prispevka Nfu-Oh neon lakov za nohte. Lake sem kupila v Talinu skoraj dve leti nazaj, prispevek.

Nfu_Oh_Neon

Nfu_Oh_Neon_SeriesStekleničke so lepe in občudovanja vredne. Laki v njih so nekaj posebnega in odtenki iz Neon serije so kot nalašč za poletje. Edino kar je moteče za videti je bela usedlina na dnu, a vsi laki so sicer v redu, le pretresti jih je treba pred uporabo.

Kaj posebnega o lakih ne bom pisala. Na vseh fotografijah sem lake nanesla v dveh plasteh. Edino lila odtenek št.214 bi za polno prekrivnost potreboval tri plasti.

Extra neon odtenki to niso, sploh če jih primerjam z drugimi neon odtenki, npr. China Glaze ali Color Club, ki jih že imam doma. A so vseeno luštni, kajne. :nails:

Nfu_Oh_Neon_244 Takrat, ko sem pripravljala seznam za nakup Nfu-Oh lakov, sem bila dobesedno obsedena z njimi. Imela bi čisto vse. Sedaj jih ne uporabljam ravno veliko. Ne vem zakaj ne. Ko gledam swatche, me spet mikajo. Upam, da so všeč tudi vam. :angel:

Uživajte v barvah poletja! :wave:

Review and swatches: Catrice Coolibri LEOpis in ocena: Catrice Coolibri LE

Yay – Catrice Coolibri LE is finally here! I can not believe I was so lucky to find the full stand and could actually chose which products I wished to buy. In the end I decided to get 3 nail polishes and 2 eyeshadow pens. :love:

Catrice Coolibri LE

If I didn’t have mile long wish list for this month, I would have bought all the nail polishes and eyeshadow pens in this LE. But as I had to be rational (hate that word :silly: ), I got blue and green nail polish and decided to go with the pink one over yellow and orange shade. Eyeshadow pens were easier as I already have green and blue one from Kiko. :angel:

Catrice Coolibri Birds Flying High nail polish is my new baby. I adore this muted blue shade with some kind of grayish undertone and possibly hint of green(?). Is comes in creme finish and easy to work with formula. And the biggest plus – no staining. :happy: 2 coats + top coat.

Catrice Coolibri Virgin Forest is playful medium green filled with green shimmer. The only downside to this shade is slightly frosty formula. I used Essence 24/7 base coat and had no staining. 2 coats + top coat. Comparison with Catrice King Of Greens is in the below video review.

Catrice Coolibri LE Abloom is another creme shade with color that borders between pink and red … but is still more pink on me. If you don’t mind VNL, you can possibly even use only one coat. 2 coats + top coat.

I tested both eyeshadows sticks and as I suspected shimmery Precious Nectar has better staying power and more “stickiness”. There was some fallout when I applied eyeshadow over Precious Nectar, but nothing major. With no base and fixated with eyeshadow I got 5+ hours without creasing. Because of the shimmery base, eyeshadows looked like they had metallic finish.
Exotica on the other hand gives eyeshadows more matte/satin look, they don’t last as long as on Precious Nectar and lack the “grip”. But with Too Faced Shadow Insurance it should have whole day staying power and I love the fact that it warms up cooler toned eyeshadows.
I can’t use these kind of products alone, but those with normal to dry eyelids could probably get away with it. As far as I could see, the’re easily removed with makeup removers or soap, but they seem to defy water.
I made comparison with Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow no. 10 and 11. Catrice Coolibri swatches were more than 4 hours “old” when this photo was taken.

Video review:

What is your favorite from Catrice Coolibri limited edition?Jupi – končno sem dočakala Catrice Coolibri LE na naših policah! Sem kar obstala sredi Mullerja, ko sem zagledala nedotaknjeno stojalo. :biggrin: Še kar ne morem verjetni, da sem celo dobila priložnost izbirati med vsemi izdelki. Na koncu sem se odločila za 3 lake in 2 senčili v stiku/svinčniku. :love:

Catrice Coolibri LE

Če ne bi imela za ta mesec že kilometerskega seznama, bi si zagotovo omislila vse lake in senčila. Ampak včasih je treba biti racionalne (ugh, kako grozna beseda :silly: ), tako da sem kupila moder in zelen lak, ter se med roza, rumenim in oranžnim, odločila za roza odtenek. Pri senčilih je bila izbira lažja, ker imam že podoben Kiko zelen in moder svinčnik. :angel:

Catrice Coolibri Birds Flying High je takoj prišel med top 10 modrih lakov. Pridušen moder odtenek, ki občasno pokaže tudi nekakšno zeleno(?) noto se mi je prav usedel v srce. Finiš je krem, formula enostavna za nanos in kot piko na i – ni mi zabarval nohtov. :happy: 2 plasti + nadlak.

Catrice Coolibri Virgin Forest je igrivo zelen odtenek z veliko drobnega zelenega šimra. Slabost je zame predvsem rahlo frosti finiš. Tudi ta odtenek ni povzročil zabarvanja, za bazo pa sem uporabila Essence 24/7 podlak.
2 plasti + nadlak. Primerjavo z Catrice King Of Greens si lahko pogledate v video posnetku na koncu prispevka.

Catrice Coolibri LE Abloom je še eden krem lak v kolekciji z barvo, ki meji na rozo in rdečo … a je na meni še vedno bolj roza kot rdeč. Če vas ne moti, da se še vedno nazirajo konice, vam bo mogoče zadostovala že ena plast. 2 plasti + nadlak.

Obe kremni senčili v stiku/svinčniku sem nanesla direktno na veke in ju fiksirala z Inglot senčko. Precious Nectar se je res izkazala za bolj obstojno senčko z boljšo oprijemljivostjo za senčila v kamnu. Senčilo se je začelo nabirati v gubi po nekaj več kot 5ih urah, zanimiv pa je bil tudi kovinski finiš, ki je nastal kot kombinacija šimraste baze in satenastega senčila.
Exotica ima bolj mat/stenast finiš ter slabšo obstojnost in oprijemljivost drugih senčil kot Precious Nectar. Vendar bi s Too Faced Shadow Insurance bazo morala sekundarna baza svoje delo opraviti čez ves dan. Pri Exotici mi je najbolj všeč, da ustvari toplo bazo, tako da so tudi hladnejši toni, ki jih nanesem čez njo, zame bolj “nosljivi”.
Jaz takšnih izdelkov ne morem uporabljati samostojno – tisti z normalnimi do suhimi vekami bi verjetno imeli boljše rezultate. Ali so senčila vodoodporna? Ne bi vedela, vendar se na roki samo z vodo niso odstranila, tako da je tudi to mogoče.
Primerjala sem tudi Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow št. 10 in 11 s Catrice Coolibri modrim in zelenim senčilom (Catrice swatch je bil takrat že nekaj ur na roki).
