Swatches: Mineralissima mineral eyeshadowsSwatch-i: Mineralissima mineralna senčila

I used to be a HUGE mineral eyeshadows fan. After a few years of using only mineral eyeshadows I got bored of them and started again using pressed eyeshadows. After swatching and playing with the Mineralissima mineral eyeshadows I remembered how much I loved playing with colorful powders. Not much to say, just I love them! But there’s a lot to show.

  • Cream“A full-fat creamy coloured eyeshadow.”
    Nice highlighter shade.
  • Nude“A neutral, very light shimmery beige eyeshadow.”
    It looks grey on me.
  • Lust“A metallic pink eyeshadow with blue accents.”
    I loved this one! One of my favourites. I bet it would look awesome as a blush. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough in the zip lock bag to try it as blush as well.
  • Happy“A light pink shimmer eyeshadow.”
  • Latte“A beautiful golden beige shimmer eyeshadow.”
    It reminds me of Sweetscents’ Oriental Beige eyeshadow. It has the same finish.
  • Amberina“A metallic deep amber eyeshadow.”

  • Glam“A rockstar-purple metallic eyeshadow.”
  • Blueberry“A deep blue eyeshadow with strong natural pigment.”
  • Forest“A forest green, matte eyeshadow to use as an eyeliner or an eyeshadow.”
    The only matte from the bunch. Nice color, but a bit hard to blend.
  • Emerald“A shimmery green eyeshadow with golden undertones.”
  • Illusion“An eyeshadow with a complex mix of colours. Reddish brown base with green and blue undertones.”
    My favourite of the bunch! An amazing duochrome. Love it!
  • Praline“A rich chocolate brown eyeshadow.”

To sum it up:
These are great mineral eyeshadows. My favourite shades from the bunch are Illussion and Happy. Forest is a bit hard to blend, but a nice color. You can use them wet or/and dry.

Please let me know in the comments, which is your favourite shade?

*Testers and one ful sized eyeshadow were sent to me for review purposes.

Včasih sem bila nenormalno zaljubljena v mineralna senčila. Po nekaj letih neprenehne uporabe le-teh, sem se jih malo naveličala in sem začela ponovno uporabljati stisnjena senčila. Po swatchanju Mineralissima mineralnih senčil sem se spomnila, kako zelo sem se rada igrala z barvitimi prahci. Tokrat ne bom veliko govorila, bom vam pa veliko pokazala.

  • Cream“A full-fat creamy coloured eyeshadow.”
    Lep osvetljevalec.
  • Nude“A neutral, very light shimmery beige eyeshadow.”
    Na meni pride sivo.
  • Lust“A metallic pink eyeshadow with blue accents.”
    Tale je eden mojih favoritov izmed vseh prikazanih. Prepričana sem, da bi izgledal super kot rdečilo za lica. Žal pa v vrečkici ni bilo dovolj senčila, da bi jo lahko preizkusila še na licih.
  • Happy“A light pink shimmer eyeshadow.”
  • Latte“A beautiful golden beige shimmer eyeshadow.”
    Zelo me spominja na Oriental Beige senčilo znamke Sweetscents. Ima tudi enak finiš.
  • Amberina“A metallic deep amber eyeshadow.”

Upam, da vas ne moti, ker sem opise odtenkov pustila kar v angleščini. Prekopirala sem jih namreč iz uradne spletne strani. Ponekod sem zraven dodala še svoj komentar.

Če povzamem:
Super mineralna senčila. Moja favorita sta odtenka Illusion in Happy. Forest je luštne barve, a malenkost težji za blendanje. Uporablja se jih lahko z mokrim ali suhim nanosom.

Kje jih lahko kupite? V spletni prodajalni Moja drogerija.
Cena: nekateri odtenki 5,98€, nekateri pa 7,99€.

Namig: Moja drogerija ob svoji prvi obletnici ponuja -15% popust. Koda za popust je: ROJSTNI DAN in velja od (29.08.) pa do srede (07.09.). Krasna priložnost, da kakšno izmed senčil preizkusite.

Zanima me, kateri odtenek vam je najbolj všeč in ali ste Mineralissima senčila že preizkusili? Kako se vam zdijo?

*Testerji in eno senčilo originalne velikosti sem dobila v oceno.

Nice colors. Easy to apply. Over an eyeshadow base these were long lasting on my normal (not very oily) eyelids. The only thing I really don’t like about these is the packaging (see the first photo).

Have you already tried NYX pearl loose powders? What do you think of them?

*The testers and one full size eyeshadow were sent to me for review.

Zelo luštni odtenki. Enostavni za nanašanje. Čez bazo za senčila so na mojih normalnih (ne preveč mastnih) vekah zdržali ves dan. Edina stvar, ki mi ni všeč, je embalaža oziroma posodica, v katero so pakirani (poglej prvo fotografijo).

Cena: 3€.

Ste morda že preizkusili NYX senčila v prahu? Kako se vam zdijo?

NYX Mega Shine Gloss – Sweet Heart

Ena mojih zadnjih pridobitev sta NYX lip glossa v odtenku Sweet Heart in Orchid, ki pa ga bom predstavila v naslednjem postu.

nyx-sh02

Če se še spomnite pri mojem postu o Essence lip glossih, sem omenila, da obožujem njihov gloss v odtenku Toffee. No, tega odtenka ni več in so ga zamenjali z drugim – Glamour to go.

Mislim pa, da sem končno našla nekaj podobnega v temu NYX glossu, ki mi je celo lepši in boljši od zgoraj omenjenih Essence glossov.

Lahko se uporablja samostojno ali čez šminko. Jaz ga večkrat kombiniram z NYX šminko v odtenku Thalia. Gloss je kremast in dišeč (diši po sadju – po kakšnih malinah ipd. :cool: ) ter precej obstojen. Na mojih ustnicah je preživel kar nekaj ur. Je lepe nude barve z ogromno mikro šimra, ki ustnicam da volumen in sijaj.

Essence – Pure Beauty Trend Edition

Pure Beauty is the newest Trend Edition from Essence. It is based on natural and earthy colors, dominated by brown. There is some apricot and gold tint to it. The collection is nothing special, but it certainly follows today’s fashion trends.

Although at first I rolled my eyes over the promotional material and the uninteresting shades of nail polish, in the end I am impressed. All shades are easy to wear and aren’t boring at all.

From left to right: Naked Truth, Honey Bun, Adorable in Innocent.

Naked Truth is a wonderful almost white shade with a tint of apricot and a pearl finish. The application was flawless and streaks were minimal. The picture shows two coats.

Honey Bun is a beige shade with a apricot to gold tint. This one has a pearl finish as well.

Adorable is a pastel apricot shade with a pink tint. It is the only creme in the collection. Actually, it has a jelly finish. That’s why it’s a bit watery and on the sheer side. The picture shows two coats. For total opacity you’ll need at least three coats.

Innocent is the darkest in this Trend Edition. It is an interesting shade, which has pearl to almost metallic finish. I didn’t have any application issues with this polish either. The picture shows two coats.

I really don’t know if I’m slowly falling for this nude trend or what, but I will definitely wear those shades. I love all of them! And all of them are going to look great on tanned skin.

I only bought nail polishes from this Trend Edition, so the following images were taken by Gejba and Goga.

Goga decided to buy two out of three lip glosses. The two were Adorable and Honey Bun. Both of them have creme texture and have no shimmer. They smell like caramel.

L: Adorable; R: Honey Bun

Up: Adorable; Down: Honey Bun

Duo Kajal is a eyeliner with a dual-mine. That means that the mine is divided in two colors. One side is brown and the other beige-caramel shade.

L: brown side; M: both color; R: beige-caramel side
L: brown side; M: both colors; R: beige-caramel side

Cream Concealer is exactly what the name says. Cream Concealer. Gejba says it applies well, but is not suitable for her skin tone as it is too orangey.

It was really kind of Saša to bring Pure Beauty Trend Edition from Austria.

What do you think? Are there any interesting things for you in this Trends Edition or not?

Najnovejši Trend Edition od Essence se imenuje Pure Beauty. Celotna kolekcija je zasnovana v naravnih in zemeljskih tonih. Prevladuje predvsem rjava barva. Nekaj je mareličnega in zlatega pridiha. Kolekcija ni čisto nič posebnega, a vsekakor sledi trenutnim modnim trendom.

Kljub začetnemu zavijanju z očmi ob pogledu na nezanimive odtenke lakov za nohte, sem na koncu nad odtenki navdušena. Čisto vsi so zelo nosljivi in čisto noben ni dolgočasen.

Od leve proti desni si sledijo: Naked Truth, Honey Bun, Adorable in  Innocent.

Essence - Pure Beauty Trend EditionNaked Truth je čudovit skoraj bel odtenek z mareličnim pridihom in perlastim finišem. Nanaša se lepo, proge so minimalno vidne. Na fotografiji sta dva nanosa.

Essence - Pure Beauty - Naked TruthHoney Bun je bež/kožen odtenek z mareličnim do zlatim pridihom. Tudi ta ima perlast finiš. Ta se je še najbolj zlil z mojo poltjo.

Essence - Pure Beauty - Honey BunAdorable je pastelno mareličen odtenek z roza pridihom. Je edini krem odtenek v kolekciji. Pravzaprav gre za “jelly” finiš, zato je nekoliko voden in prosojen. Na fotografiji sta dva nanosa. Za popolno prekrivnost so potrebni trije.

Essence - Pure Beauty - AdorableInnocent je najtemnejši odtenek v kolekciji. Gre za zelo zanimiv odtenek, ki ima perlast do kovinski finiš. Z nanašanjem nisem imela nobenih težav. Na fotografiji sta dva nanosa.

Essence - Pure Beauty - InnocentNe vem, ali počasi podlegam temu nude trendu, ampak čisto vse zgornje odtenke bom zagotovo nosila, ker so mi čisto vsi všeč. In čisto vsi bodo izgledali super na rahlo zagoreli koži.

Iz tega Trend Edition-a sem zase kupila samo lake za nohte Za ostale stvari, ki jih bom še predstavila, sta fotografije prispevali Gejba in Goga.

Izmed treh različnih odtenkov glosov, se je Goga odločila za dva odtenka. In sicer za Adorable in Honey Bun. Oba glosa sta kremaste strukture in popolnoma brez bleščic. Vonj je sladek in spominja na karamelo.

Cream Concealer je točno to, kar že ime pove. Kremni korektor. Gejba pravi, da je lepo mazljiv, a je za njeno polt preveč oranžen.
