Becca ” Glow on the Go ” Kit Review / Recenzija

Hello ! Long time no see ! 😁

As you can tell – I’ve redesigned the website, so now I can finally get back to my writing ! Being a Gemini = sick perfectionist on the loose. I’m trying to learn a bit more about CSS and some other stuff, just to be more familiar with my blog on the tech side. I’ll also improve the quality of my pictures in the near future. Even though this is a hobby for me, I want to give my best. Hope y’all like the changes ! 😊

OK – So, let’s cut to the chase.

For the first time, I’m here with my impressions of a makeup set – An adorable highlighter kit called ” Glow on the Go” by BECCA Cosmetics.

The review is as always, divided into several segments, so feel free to skip the parts you find boring 😉 :

Zdravo ! 😁

Konačno se vraćam pisanju posle duže pauze. Blog je ujedno doživeo manje izmene u vizuelnom smislu… To vam je kada ste bolesni Blizanac perfekcionista I nemate mira dok apsolutno sve nije onako kako ste zamislili.  Iako je meni ovo lep hobi, potrudiću se da vam u skorijoj budućnosti pružim dosta kvalitetniju fotografiju. Počela sam da učim i malo o CSS-u, prosto kako bih bila više upoznata sa tehničkom stranom vođenja bloga, s obzirom da sve sama radim. Toliko o tome, nadam se da će vam se svideti predstojeće promene ! 😊

Nakon ove krajnje dosadne uvertire, prelazim na ono što vas sve najviše i interesuje. Po prvi put vam dolazim sa recenzijom jednog malog seta šminke. U pitanju je set hajlajtera pod nazivom ” Glow on the Go” australijskog brenda BECCA Cosmetics.

Recenzija je kao I uvek podeljena na nekoliko segmenata, zato slobodno preskočite šta vas ne zanima 😉 

AN INTRO REGARDING BECCA COSMETICS / MALI UVOD O BECCA KOZMETICI

While doing an extensive research for the perfect foundation formula, former MUA Rebecca Morrice Williams from Perth, Australia, came to an idea of a makeup brand. With the help of Steven Schapera, her CEO & business partner at the time, Becca Cosmetics was finally launched in 2001.

If you would use a word to describe the brand at the time, I’d probably say – “diversity”. Rebecca’s goal was to produce a makeup line that caters to all – women of all color, undertone and skin type. Something that wasn’t as present on the market at the time. For example, one of their first products was a foundation that covered a range of 30 shades and a concealer in 34 colors ( as I’ve read in an old interview for BeautyMarked ).

Her development team also knew for inclusivity. Members like Elizabeth Reeves, a Kenyan born Australian model and MUA, helped Rebecca understand the needs among women of color in Australia when it comes to makeup. Becca Cosmetics also had a special condition for retailers : You want to work with us ? – Sell ALL the shades. 10 shades out of 30 on your shelves ? – Bye Felicia. The company had a lot of integrity, and stood by their policy.

With years the brand grew, selling more than 350 products worldwide, with the “Shimmering Skin Perfector ” liquid highlighter as one of their first best sellers. Becca also became very popular among celebrities such as Naomi Campbell, Beyoncé, Cameron Diaz, Cate Blanchett etc..

Unfortunately, you know what they say – ” Business is Business”.

In 2012, Rebecca sold Becca Cosmetics to Luxury Brand Partners, but was still a part of the cosmetic group. The brand went through a “reinvention” process, resulting in a massive reduction of products. In 2016, Luxury Brand Partners sold Becca to conglomerate Estée Lauder. Since fall of the same year, Rebecca is no longer affiliated with the company.

Nakon višegodišnjeg istraživanja u potrazi za savršenom formulom pudera, bivši šminker Rebeka Moris Vilijams iz Perta u Australiji, donosi odluku da pokrene sopstveni brend kozmetike. Uz pomoć Stivena Šejpira, tadašnjeg poslovnog partnera, Rebeka 2001. godine uspešno lansira na tržište Becca Cosmetics. Ukoliko biste opisivali tadašnji brend jednom rečju, verovatno biste rekli -” raznolikost”. Rebeka je imala za cilj kreiranje linije dekorativne kozmetike, koja bi zadovoljila veoma širok spektar potrošača. Predstavljala bi kozmetiku za apsolutno svaki tip, boju i podton kože. U prilog tome govore i neki od njihovih prvih proizvoda : Samo puder i korektor su već u startu obuhvatali preko 30 nijansi ( kako je i sama izjavila u jednom starom intervjuu za BeautyMarked ). 

U samom razvojnom timu kompanije, takođe nije bilo ni traga isključivosti. Članovi tima, poput  šminkerke i modela Elizabete Rivs , inače Australijanke rodom iz Kenije, od velikog su značaja bili po Rebeku, pre svega u boljem upoznavanju sa potrebama žena tamnije puti u Australiji. Becca je imala i posebnu politiku, kada je bila u pitanju distribucija i rad sa maloprodajnim lancima. Svako je morao da ispuni 1 uslov – Ili prodajete SVE nijanse naših proizvoda, ili zaboravite na saradnju sa nama. Kompanija je odisala integritetom, čvrsto se držeći svojih principa. 

Tokom godina, popularnost brenda sve više raste. Raspolažu sa preko 350 proizvoda koji se uspešno prodaju širom sveta. Naravno, tu je i “Shimmering Skin Perfector ” tečni hajlajter , kao jedan od najprodavanijih proizvoda iz Becca asortimana. Među ljubiteljima njihovih proizvoda, sada su već tu i svetske zvezde poput Naomi Kembel, Bijonse, Kejt Blanšet, Kameron Dijaz itd..

Nažalost, postoji i onaj izraz – ” Biznis je biznis “.

2012. godine, Rebeka prodaje Becca Cosmetics kompaniji Luxury Brand Partners, s tim da je tada još uvek bila deo Becca grupe. Tada su usledile i određene promene, pre svega u vidu drastičnog smanjenja asortimana proizvoda. 2016. godine Luxury Brand Partners prodaje Becca Cosmetics, konglomeratu Estée Lauder . Od jeseni iste godine, Rebeka više nema nikakvog udela u radu same kompanije.

PACKAGING / AMBALAŽA

You get an adorable pearlescent cardboard box, that features 2 travel-size products : the ” Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ” & the ” Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlight “. Both are in Becca’s best-selling shade – Opal. You’re actually getting the Shimmering Skin Perfector highlighter in two forms – liquid & pressed pan. They both come in a nice plastic packaging : “Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlight” comes in a lip gloss like container with a straight doe foot applicator, while the “Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed” comes in a cute plastic compact with a small mirror. Had no issues with the packaging, the liquid highlighter’s lid seals tight, the compact won’t open easily, all in all, good quality.

With the liquid highlighter, you get 5 ml/0.17 fl. Oz of product, while the compact pressed version carries 2.4 g/0.08 Oz ( regular size compact carries 8 g). The liquid version is made in Germany and assembled in China, with a shelf life of 6 months after opening. Pressed version is made in USA, with a longer shelf life of 24 months after opening.

Kao što vidite, u okviru preslatke sedefaste kartonske kutijice, nalaze se dve mini verzije hajlajtera. U pitanju su ” Shimmering Skin Perfector ” hajlajter u kamenu, I “Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlight ” , njegova tečna verzija . Oba hajlajtera su u najprodavanijoj  Becca nijansi – Opal. Proizvodi imaju finu plastičnu ambalažu, SSP Spotlight se nalazi u bočici poput sjaja za usne, sa ravnim sunđerastim aplikatorom za lakše nanošenje, dok se SSP u kamenu nalazi u malom kompaktu sa ogledalcem. Ambalaža je dobre izrade, tako da nemam zamerki – nema straha od samootvaranja kompakta, bočica se takođe čvrsto zatvara. Sve u svemu, sasvim pristojan kvalitet.

Kada je u pitanju gramaža tj. mililitraža, dobijate 5 ml tečnog hajlajtera odnosno 2,4 gr hajlajtera u kamenu ( njegovo standardno pakovanje sadrži 8gr ). Tečna verzija je napravljena u Nemačkoj i sastavljena u Kini, sa rokom trajanja od 6 meseci nakon otvaranja. Hajlajter verzija u kamenu  napravljena je u SAD-u, sa rokom trajanja od 2 godine ( 24 meseca ) nakon otvaranja.

ABOUT THE PRODUCT / O SAMOM PROIZVODU

Like I’ve mentioned it earlier, this is a highlighter set, containing the exact same SSP shade, just in two different forms – liquid and pressed powder.  Unfortunately, this set doesn’t come in every SSP shade, so for now you can only get the Shimmering Skin Perfector kit in Opal and Champagne Pop ( former collaboration shade with Jaclyn Hill ). I do hope they’ll change this, since the set is a best-seller. This fall, the company has also launched Opal and the other SSP pressed highlighters in a mini version, so hopefully this kit will also be available in other SSP shades in the near future. These are also travel-size products, so they are great for on the go.

Kao što sam već spomenula, ovo je hajlajterski set koji se u principu sastoji iz dve verzije Shimmering Skin Perfector-a : tečne i u kamenu. Set je za sada nažalost samo dostupan u nijansi Opal i odnedavno u nijansi Champagne Pop ( nekadašnja kolaboracija sa Džeklin Hil) . Zaista se nadam da će se set uskoro pojaviti i u ostalim SSP nijansama, s obzirom da je jedan od njihovih najprodavanijih proizvoda. Becca je inače ove jeseni lansirala i mini verzije svih nijansi SSP hajlajtera, tako da realizacija i ovih setova u svim SSP nijansama nije nemoguća. Ovo su inače putne verzije proizvoda, tako da ih lako možete nositi sa sobom.

FUNCTIONALITY & USABILITY / FUNKCIONALNOST & UPOTREBLJIVOST

The products can be used just as every highlighter – to accentuate the high-points of the face. You could use them on your cheeks, nose bridge or Cupid’s bow. The pressed version can also be used all over the lid as an eye shadow, in the inner corners, or under the brow bone .  

Fun tip : Every person should know how to highlight there own face in according to their face shape and features. Take a mirror and go to a source of light ( window, indoor lights etc) after you put on your most greasy face product – e.g a face oil or cream. While moving your head around, you’ll see where the light hits your face. That way you’ll get those perfect and unique highlighting spots. 😊

Oba proizvoda možete koristiti naravno kao i svaki hajlajter – prvenstveno da naglasite visoke tačke na licu. Možete ih koristiti na jagodičnoj kosti, mostu nosa ili iznad gornje usne. Verzija u kamenu je odlična i kao senka preko celog kapka, ili za hajlajtovanje ispod obrve i u unutrašnjim uglovima očiju.

Zabavni trik : Kako biste znali kako da hajlajtujete svoje lice u skladu sa njegovim oblikom i crtama – Nanesite najmasniji proizvod koji imate, tipa neko ulje, serum ili hidratantnu kremu. Uzmite ogledalo i ispred nekog izvora svetlosti ( kod prozora, ispred nekog osvetljenja), pomeranjem glave, videćete koja su najbolja mesta za hajlajtovanje isključivo vašeg lica. 😊

APPLICATION & IMPRESSIONS / PRIMENA & UTISCI

When describing this highlighter’s shade, I’d say that this is a more warm, peachy – dusty rose color, with some subtle gold shimmer in it. The ingredients are very finely mild, don’t appear chunky or glittery on the skin. The liquid version is on the thicker side, with a slight powdery scent. They both don’t accentuate the skin’s texture like some other highlighters. You can use whatever brush you’d like with the pressed version, and it works great with both natural and synthetic bristles. For example, a fan brush, or a more fluffy, less dense blending brush, whatever you prefer. With the liquid form, I stick to my fingers. Just dab a few dots of the SSP onto the skin and blend them out with your ring finger.

The products can be applied in a dramatic or a more subtle way, giving the face a nice, healthy, glow. You could use each product on its own, or both of them together. Pretty much, it just depends on the intensity/impact you want to achieve.

When it comes to the intensity, I’d say that the liquid form can be a bit less intense than the pressed – since you can shear it out with your fingers, so it’s perfect for daytime. If you would use them together, the pressed version adheres perfectly onto the liquid form. This way you’ll amplify the intensity of the shade. When it comes to the longevity, had no issues with them rubbing off easily, pretty good wear, and if you use them on top of each other, the highlighter is practically sealed.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlight in Opal

Shimmering Skin Perfector pressed highlighter in Opal

Pressed Highlighter with the Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlight underneath.
As you can see, the Spotlight amplifies the highlighter's intensity & undertone.

Što se tiče same Opal nijanse, opisala bih je kao jednu toplu, breskva – prljavo roze nijansu, sa diskretnim šimerom. Kvalitet izrade hajlajtera je odličan, šimer ne deluje krupno niti previše upadljivo. Tečna verzija je malo gušća, blagog puderastog mirisa. Hajlajteri takođe ne ističu puno teksturu kože. Podjednako se ponaša kao sa prirodnim tako i sa sintetičkim četkicama.

Možete koristiti koju god četkicu želite, kako klasičnu lepeza tako i neke ređe gustine četkice za blendiranje. Izbor je apsolutno na vama. Što se tiče tečne verzije, tu se lično držim prstiju. Prosto nanesete nekoliko kapi hajlajtera na kožu i domalim prstom jednostavno utapkate proizvod da se stopi sa podlogom. Sa oba proizvoda možete postići kako suptilniju dnevnu, tako i dramatičniju, večernju, varijantu hajlajtovanja. Hajlajtere možete koristiti kako svaki pojedinačno, tako i zajedno. Sve zavisi kakav efekat želite da postignete.

Što se tiče njihovih intenziteta, smatram tečnu verziju malo slabijom, ali savršenom za neku dnevnu varijantu. Ukoliko biste ih koristili zajedno, hajlajter u kamenu odlično prianja na tečnu formulu. Na ovaj način ćete prosto pojačati intezitet hajlajtera na maksimum. Što se tiče trajnosti, vrlo su postojani, a ukoliko ih kombinujete zajedno, bukvalno ste zacementirali svoj hajlajter.

INGREDIENTS / SASTAV

When it comes to the ingredients, these products do contain things like : talc, parabens, silicone, mineral oil, carmine and parfum. So if your skin has issues with some of the ingredients, you could skip these products. I personally had no issues with them, but again – my skin is not sensitive. This is also a cruelty-free brand ( though not vegan, since it does contain carmine). Do keep in mind that some of their other products are paraben-free, so formulations do vary and they also often reformulate (E.g as you can see, the Pressed version is paraben-free ).

Što se tiče samog sastava, oba proizvoda sadrže sastojke poput : talka, parabena, silikona, mineralnog ulja, parfema i karmina (pigment). Prema tome, ukoliko zaobilazite neke od ovih sastojaka, možete ih i preskočiti. Ja lično nisam imala nekakvih problema prilikom njihove upotrebe, ali opet moja koža nije ni osetljiva. Ovo je cruelty-free brend ( mada ne i veganski zbog karmina ). Imajte na umu da su mnogi Becca proizvodi bez parabena, tako da formule dosta variraju od proizvoda do proizvoda, a ujedno često vrše i reformulacije (npr. kao što vidite, hajlajter verzija u kamenu ima formulu bez parabena ).

                                                                   THE SSP OPAL – PRESSED VERSION

Important note : Use these charts made via COSDNA’s website more as to see if the product contains any ingredients to which you’re allergic and/or – you prefer to avoid from using (comedogenic reason etc.). They’ll be a post regarding ingredients and safety stuff, how it can all vary, since I’ve seen ppl going cray cray over things that are considered “toxic” and going just “all natural”, about what I’ve learned, my point of view, etc.

SSP OPAL – LIQUID VERSION

                                                                                                                 

ANY REMARKS ? / BILO KAKVE PRIMEDBE ?

I think that for the first time with a product – I really can’t find any issues. It really is a lovely highlighter in both forms. 

Mislim da je ovo prvi put da apsolutno nemam zamerki. Zaista je divan hajlajter, kako u presovanoj tako i u tečnoj verziji.

DO I RECOMMEND ? / DA LI PREPORUČUJEM ?

Absolutely ! The highlighter is just wonderful, great for day & night. Plus – the kit is also very reasonably priced when you look at the brand, so you should most definitely try it out ! Since Christmas is around the corner, I would also suggest this as a lovely stocking filler, or in general, a really nice gift if you’re on a budget. I bought mine in Prague at Sephora, for the retail price of 520Kč ( around 20,34 euros / 23,73 $ ). For this holiday season, the kit is also available in “Moonstone” and ” Rose Gold ” so you can pick and choose. 

Well, that’s it for my review ! I hope you liked it ! Until my next post, enjoy your weekend guys ! 😊

Apsolutno ! Divan hajlajter, kako za neku dnevnu, tako i večernju varijantu. Cena samog seta je takođe vrlo pristupačna s obzirom da je ovo brend višeg cenovnog ranga. Zaista imate toplu preporuku od mene kada je u pitanju ovaj hajlajter. S obzirom da nam uskoro stižu i praznici, ovaj set je odličan primer Božićnog poklona, pogotovu ukoliko ste na budžetu. Set sam kupila u Pragu u jednoj od Sephora, po ceni od 520 čeških kruna ( to je oko 20 evra, tj. 2400 dinara). Inače za predstojeće Novogodišnje i Božićne praznike, Becca je ove jeseni lansirala set u još 2 nijanse ” Moonstone” i ” Rose Gold”, tako da je izbor setova trenutno malo veći. 

Što se tiče čitatelja iz moje Srbije, a i sa ex-Yu prostora, Becca brend konačno stiže i u naše Sephora prodavnice tokom sledeće godine ( konačno se nešto pokrenulo po pitanju dovođenja brendova u Rumuniji, koja je centrala za ovaj region). 

Nadam se da vam se ova podugačka 😬😬 recenzija svidela ! Do sledećeg posta, želim vam lep vikend ! 😊

Urban Decay Naked Heat Review / Recenzija

Hello friends ! 🤗

Hope you’re all having a wonderful summer !. 🌞 Chillin’ on a holiday with a nice icy drink🍹 by the pool or on a nice sandy beach. 🏖 The Lucifer heat wave in this part of Europe is no joke… 🌋Seriously, God bless the inventor of AC – cuz we’re all melting. 😰

Sadly, vacation time is over for me, so I’m back to reality ( though, I do much prefer being a lazy ass 🤣 ). But with this being said, I’m also back with a new review – the very much hyped ( & controversial ) Urban Decay’s NAKED HEAT palette !. So, without further a due, let’s get started – shall we?. 😉

Like always, just read the sections you find interesting :

Pozdrav dragi ljudi !. 🤗

Nadam se da uživate u ovom letu, po mogućstvu uz neko hladno pićence 🍹 pored bazena ili na plaži. 🏊🏖 Uz ove tropske vrućine, definitivno nisu džaba nazvali toplotni talas Lucifer. – Hvala Bogu na izumitelju klime!. Realno, u ovim uslovima se čovek ne znoji, nego prosto topi… 😰

Što se tiče odmora, on je za mene nažalost završen, vratih se u nove radne pobede ( mada mi je uvek draže biti lenjoslav, opružena k´o morska zvezda 🤣 ). E sad, sa novim radnim pobedama, eto i nove recenzije, u ovom slučaju – Urban Decay NAKED HEAT palete !. Pa da počnemo… 😉

Kao i uvek, recenzija je podeljena po celinama, pa preskočite sa čitanjem onoga što vas ne zanima :

 

AN intro regarding URBAN DECAY as a brand – Mali uvod o samom UD-u kao brendu

 

So, Urban Decay was born in the US in 1996. The company was founded by Sandy Lerner, Wende Zomnir and Pat Holmes, as a rebellious act against the makeup color trends at that moment. Brand itself was actually named after an eyeshadow they made, called ” Urban Decay” ( a mixture of raspberry & black).

They offered some unique shades, with a slightly more artistic, grungy and liberating approach to makeup. Some of their first fans included No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani and Shirley Manson from Garbage. They hit it big in 1998, with their first best-selling product, an eyeshadow called Midnight Cowboy. From there, success just kept coming, with a Naked palette now being sold every 6 secs !. In 2012, the company was bought by L’oreal.

Now, although some things business wise have changed – they remained true to themselves, not just creativity wise – but also as a PETA & The Leaping Bunny program 🐇( CCIC) certified cruelty-free makeup brand. With their free of charge Urban Decay Pro program, they also support young and aspiring makeup artists, giving them the possibility to improve their skills and find their way in the beauty industry. 

Urban Decay je rođen u SAD-u 1996. Kompaniju su osnovali Sendi Lerner, Pet Holms i Vendi Zomnir?? ( khm, iskasapih im imena za sve pare), kao bunt protiv tadašnjih trendova kada je u pitanju šminka. Brend je inace dobio naziv po njihovoj istoimenoj senki ” Urban Decay ” ( kombinacija crne i boje maline).

Na tržište su lansirali neke nove, nesvakidašnje nijanse za to vreme, dobijajuću epitet kozmetike usmerene ka osobama sa određenom dozom ekscentričnosti i slobode izražavanja. Neki od prvih ljubitelja ovog brenda među slavnima uključuju Gven Stefani iz tadašnjeg benda No Doubt i Širli Menson, benda Garbage. Uspeh i priznanja stižu već 1998.godine sa senkom Midnight Cowboy, inače njihovim prvim najprodavanijim proizvodom. Uspesi su nastavili da se nižu, a danas se mogu pohvaliti time da se jedna Naked paleta proda na svakih 6 sekundi !. Uz nekoliko promena poslovnih partnera, kompanija je 2012. godine prodata L’oreal -u.

Bez obzira na određene poslovne promene, ostali su dosledni sebi – kako kada je u pitanju kreativnost i inovacija, tako i kao Cruelty-free brend, sertifikovan od strane PETA-e  i The Leaping Bunny Program – a (CCIC ). Urban Decay je ujedno poznat i po UD Pro Programu, osmišljenog da besplatno pomaže mladim, talentovanim, šminkerima u usavršavanju njihovih veština i probijanju u okviru industrije lepote.

Packaging – Ambalaža

 

The palette comes in a nice cardboard sleeve box. The whole theme of the packaging is warm toned like the palette – a mixture of browns, copper, gold, sienna yellow and ocher red. The palette itself is very sturdy, good quality heavy plastic case with a secure magnetic closing. You get 12  warm toned eyeshadows – 1,3 gr (0.05 oz) each, a full length mirror, and their standard dual ended brush with taklon bristles. The shadows and parts are made in USA ( brush in China) with the palette assembled in Dominican Republic.

Paleta stiže u lepom kartonskom pakovanju na izvlačenje. Ambalaža je naravno u skladu sa samim tonovima u paleti – kombinacija toplih braon, bakarne, zlatne, siena žute i oker crvene boje. Izrađena je od kvalitetne teže plastike, sa magnetnim zatvaranjem. Dobijate 12 senki toplog podtona, svaka težine 1,3 grama, klasičnim ogledalom duž gornje strane uz njhovu dvostranu četkicu od sintetičkih taklon dlačica.  Senke I sami sastavni delovi palete se proizvode u SAD-u (izuzev četkice koje dolazi iz Kine ), dok se same palete sastavljaju u Dominikanskoj Republici. 

 

Eyeshadow texture – Tekstura senki

 

This palette is a combo of shimmer, metallic and matte shades. Most of them are from the same family, just with a different finish or undertone. Like I previously said, a mixture of mostly warm browns with a ocher red, sienna yellow and orange undertone. Matte shades are buttery soft, very finely mild. The shimmers are not chunky as you could expect, since that can be very common for light reflecting shadows, that usually have some glitter particles. Metallic shades are also very finely mild and smooth. Overall, these eyeshadows are great quality.

Ovo je paleta koja predstavlja miks svetlucavih ( iliti šimer), metalik i mat senki. U osnovi su sve iz iste porodice, samo različitih finiša ili podtona. Kao što sam već ranije rekla, kombinacija prevashodno toplih braon sa narandžastim, oker crvenim i žutim podtonom. Mat senke su vrlo svilenkaste i meke, zaista vrlo fine pod prstima. Svetlucave senke su nimalo grube teksture, što je nekad česta pojava kod senki koje reflektuju svetlost, s obzirom na šljokice (gliter) u svom sastavu. Metalik senke su takođe vrlo fine i baršunaste. Generalno, odličan kvalitet izrade senki.

 

Pigmentation – Pigmentacija

 

As you will see, I’ve done the swatches in two ways – First version is on the back of my hand with a finger and no primer. I like doing these kind of swatches, since this is how most people tryout shadows in the store. All shades are made with the UD pigment infusion system (some kind of special binding agents for pigments, to give more intensity & softness to the shadows, without creasing). These are in the following order :

  1. Ounce – described as an ivory shimmer / My thoughts – Extremely fine golden shimmer shade ( hard to pick up with camera ), it can be a bit tricky to get the intensity, so I’d advise you to use some Fix+ to get the whole beauty of it. Good for the brow bone and inner corners, but again very subtle and smooth. You could even use it as a highlighter, that’s just how fine it is.
  2. Chaser –  Light nude matte / I’d say a less pigmented & the most powdery basic warm beige color. This would suit perfectly very pale skin for the crease to give it depth or as an all over lid colour to set your eyeshadow base. Great for beginners in makeup, since it’s so subtle.
  3. Sauced – Terracotta matte / warm matte brown with a slight reddish undertone. Again great crease colour like the rest of the mattes.
  4. Low Blow –  Classic matte brown with a more yellow undertone.
  5. Lumbre – Copper shimmer with a pearl finish /Lovely on the center of the lid, or in the inner corners.
  6. He Devil – Burnt red / Great for crease, all over lid colour, you name it.

Also – Some colours are very similar, so do keep that in mind.

Kao što vidite, svočeve sam radila na dva načina. Prvi prstima bez baze, kako i obično probamo senke u prodavnici. Sve senke su izrađene sa UD pigment infusion sistemom ( pigment se vezuje tako da dobijamo jači intenzitet boja, mekoću i lakše blendanje).

  1. Ounce – boja slonovače sa zlatnim šimerom. Vrlo blaga senka, kamera je jedva hvata. Da bi dobili intenzitet boje, najbolje bi bilo da koristite Fiks plus. Odlična za unutrašnji deo oka, ispod obrve. Možete je čak koristiti i kao hajlajter na jagodicama, vrlo suptilna nijansa.
  2. Chaser – Svetla mat bež. Slabije pigmentovana i dosta praškasta senka. Opet kao takva dobra za početnike u šminkanju i za osobe izrazito svetle puti, za senčenje u predelu pregiba kapka, da date oku dubinu ili preko celog kapka za setovanje baze.
  3. Sauced –  Terakota mat – topla braon sa crvenim podtonom. Odlična za pregib ili preko celog kapka.
  4. Low Blow – topla mat braon žutog podtona.
  5. Lumbre – Bakarna šimer senka sedefastog finiša. ( divna kako na centralnom delu kapka, tako i u unutrašnjim uglovima oka).
  6. He Devil – Zagasito crvena. Odlična za pregib i senčenje, preko celog oka, kako god želite.

Imajte na umu da su neke senke dosta slične.

And here is the colour payoff when you use a primer ( NYX HD ) on the skin & a soft taklon brush – Real Techniques Base Shadow brush ( all in super macro mode ):

Evo i svočeva sa bazom (NYX HD ) na koži, nanošene sa mekom četkicom od taklon vlakana – Real Techniques Base Shadow brush ( sve su urađene u super makro režimu fotografisanja) :

The next 6 shades : 

1. Dirty Talk – metallic burnt red – Like He devil just with a coppery shimmer ( great for center of the lid and inner corner).

2. Scorched – metallic deep red with gold micro shimmer – a nice metallic with a slight pinkish hue to it ( center lid and inner corner ).

3.Cayenne – deep terracotta matte – deep orange brown ( use all over lid or in the crease).

4. En Fuego – matte burgundy red – a more ocher red based.

5. Ashes – deep redish brown matte –  I’d say more of a plummy/cranberry brown on my skin ( if it makes any sense). The only one you have to work with a bit more (more blend ) .

6. Ember – metallic copper burgundy- again like Ashes just with a copper gleam.

Sledećih 6 senki :

  1. Dirty talk – zagasito crvena metalik nijansa. Poput He Devil-a, samo sa bakarnim šimerom ( odlična kako za unutrašnje uglove oka tako i centralni deo kapka).
  2. Scorched – metalik crvena sa zlatnim šimerom. Skoro da ima jedan rozikasti odsjaj.
  3. Cayenne –  bogata mat terakota – jedna bogata braon narandžastog podtona
  4. En Fuego – mat bordo-  oker crvenog podtona ,ako ima logike .
  5. Ashes – tamna mat braon senka, crvenog podtona – na mojoj koži izlazi više kao neka tamna ljubičasto-braon, nekako boja skoro poput šljive/brusnice (opet moje neko viđenje nijanse).
  6. Ember – metalik bakarno bordo senka. Na mojoj koži više kao Ashes samo sa bakarnim odsjajem.

 

Taklon brush swatches with primer in super macro mode

 

I have to say, most of the darker shades are so strong that they even stained my skin a bit , with both forms of application ( this doesn’t happen on the eyelids). Also wanted to point out – you get the same colour payoff with the matte shades even when using a brush with natural bristles (e.g. MAC 239 / goat hair ).  

Mogu vam reći da je većina tamnih senki ostavila trag na koži nakon skidanja, kod oba načina nanošenja ( ne brinite, to se nije dešavalo i na kapcima ). Takođe da napomenem da dobijate isti intenzitet mat senki I sa četkicom od prirodne dlake ( npr. isti su mi svočevi I sa MAC 239).

 

APPLICATION AND IMPRESSIONS – APLIKACIJA I PONAŠANJE SAMIH SENKI NAKON NANOŠENJA 

 

With primer, these eyeshadows won’t budge. They blend beautifully, don’t look patchy and don’t crease. You don’t actually need to build the intensity that much, since they’re mostly very pigmented, so a little goes a long way, (use a light hand). When we’re talking about fallout, these shadows won’t end up on your cheekbones. Once they set, you’re good to go. I have oily, hooded eyelids and these stay put even in this heatwave. There is some kick-up when you pick the product with your brush from the pan ( some are more softly pressed), but this isn’t such a big deal for me (of course, always tap the excess off, before applying shadow to the lid ). 

Sa bazom, ove senke neće mrdnuti. Divno se blendaju, nikada neće delovati musavo niti se skupljaju u pregibima oka. Senke su vrlo pigmentovane, lako se postiže intenzitet boje, zato koristite laku ruku. Neće ni završiti na vašim jagodicama nakon nanošenja. Neke se senke ipak malo krune kada ih uzimate sa četkicom iz pana jer su blaže presovane ( naravno, uvek otresite višak pre nanošenja na oči). Senke zaista uopšte neće mrdati sa kapaka, a moji su vam najbolji test vozač – spušteni, masni kapci. I na ovih blagih 37 stepeni, senke su se odlično pokazale i nisu mrdale bukvalno do skidanja.

 

FUNCTIONALITY & USABILITY – FUNKCIONALNOST I UPOTREBLJIVOST

 

I’d say great for every day looks, but also for nice brown coppery nighttime looks. Very nice selection of mattes for transition ( 7 mattes in total) and shimmer shades for that pop of colour. Ounce is the only one that I don’t see as intense enough for the brow bone without Fix plus. It’s not bad, don’t get me wrong, just too subtle (but again, that’s a matter of personal preferance ).

Here is an example of a medium intensity look (I suck at taking these photos, also – I added liner, a pair of lashes and more mascara later, here I just wanted you to see the raw shading process) :

Ovo je odlična paleta za svaki dan ali ujedno i za neke lepe braon bakarne večernje varijante. Imate dosta lepih mat senki za prelaz i senčenje (ukupno 7), sedefaste i šimer senke za dodatni efekat. Ounce je jedino previše blaga za deo ispod obrve, za intenzitet vam treba Fiks+. Znači nije loša, samo je jaako blaga senka ( mada opet, ovo zavisi I od ličnog ukusa). 

Evo i jednog look-a srednjeg intenziteta kao primer kako to može da izgleda na očima (dodala sam kasnije lajner,još maskare i trepuške – ovom slikom samo samo htela da vidite finalni proces senčenja, tj.kako izgledaju same senke) : 

Note to self- Don’t pluck an annoying hair at the tail – BEFORE taking close up pictures 🙄

 

THE INGREDIENTS LIST – LISTA SASTAVA SENKI

 

As always, here’s the ingredients list chart, via the COSDNA’s website. Use this chart to see if there are any ingredients to which you’re allergic.

Kao i uvek, dodala sam i COSDNA tabelu sa listom sastava senki u paleti. Na ovaj način možete prevashodno videti ukoliko paleta sadrži neki on sastojaka na koji znate da ste alergični.

 

ANY ISSUES WITH THE PALETTE ? – BILO KAKVE ZAMERKE VEZANO ZA PALETU ?

 

I could say some kick-up, but that’s pretty common with most palettes, and for me personally, that’s not a big issue ( in general, my biggest issues with palettes are usually lack of pigmentation, hard to blend, looking patchy and fallout – which is definitely not the case here).

Powdery feel and lack of pigmentation with Chaser and having to work a bit more with Ashes ( so 2 out out of 12 are so-so, which is not bad ).

Mogla bih reći eventualno krunjenje ali to je dosta uobičajena stvar za senke i meni lično ne smeta ( kod senki kao mane najviše vidim nedostatak pigmentacije, kada se teško blendaju, deluju musavo, sakupljaju u pregibima ili završavaju na jagodicama – što kod ove palete definitivno nije slučaj).

Praškasta i manje pigmentovana Chaser i Ashes koja traži više blendiranja ( 2 od 12 senki su znači đene-đene, što nije strašno).

 Do I recommend it ? – Da li je preporučujem ?

 

I think if you want to invest in a nice warm palette, this could be it. 😊 The palette is very user friendly, even for beginners at makeup, great for every eye shape & skin tone. The colors are easy to mix and match, and you can make some nice daytime & nighttime smokey looks. In my opinion it’s perfect for fall. You will be able to use it on a daily basis, so you’ll get a lot of use out of it. Overall, it’s good value for money. 😊 I bought mine a few weeks ago at the Sephora store in Prague. I don’t regret buying it ( believe me, i’d say if I did so you could save your money 😉), so definitely go and check it out !. 😊 Retail price was 1520 CZK (that’s around 58.21 euros ), so maybe a bit pricey, but well worth it. 😊

Hope you liked my looong ass review ! 😬😬😬 Until my next post, have a great weekend guys ! 🤗

Ukoliko želite da uložite u jednu toplu paletu, definitivno uzmite ovu paletu u obzir. 😊 Paleta je po meni pogodna i za početnike kada je u pitanju šminkanje i ujedno odgovara svakom tipu oka ( čak i za spuštene kapke, s obzirom da su većina mat senke). Boje se lako kombinuju, odlična je kako za dnevnu tako i večernju šminku. Divna paleta za predstojeću jesen. Prosto je tip palete za kojom ćete lako posezati svaki dan, tako da će se zaista isplatiti uloženi novac. 😊 Paletu sam inače kupila pre par nedelja u Sephora radnji u Pragu, po ceni od 1520 CZK ( negde oko 58.21 evra tj. oko ~ 7.000,00 rsd.). Kada je u pitanju srpska Sephora, zaista ne znam kada će se pojaviti, koliko sam videla na društvenim mrežama kod nekih naših blogera koji sa njima sarađuju, očekuje se valjda početkom septembra ( nemojte me držati za reč, najbolje pitajte u Sephori lično). 😊

Nadam se da vam se ova podugačka 😬😬 recenzija svidela ! Do sledećeg posta, želim vam lep vikend ! 😊

Pony Effect ” Deep & Pure ” Lip Tint review

Aaand – I’m back guys! 😄

We’re continuing where we left off with the Pony Effect review series ! This time, I’m here with a lip product, in this case – the PONY EFFECT “Deep & Pure” Lip Tint review.  As always, I’ve divided this review into several sections, so feel free to skip what you don’t want to read about 😊 :

Iiii – evo me konačno ponovo na blogu ! 😄

Nastavljamo gde smo stali sa serijalom Pony EFFECT. U ovom slučaju, u pitanju je recenzija PONY EFFECT “Deep & Pure” tinte za usne. Bez neke preduge (i dosadne ) uvertire, prelazimo direktno na stvar. Naravno kao i uvek, recenzija je podeljena na nekoliko celina , tako da možete preskočiti sa čitanjem onoga što vas ne zanima 🙂 :

Packaging / Ambalaža

The lip tint comes in a sturdy plastic tube with a standard doe foot applicator, nicely placed in a sleek cardboard box. Like with the rest of Pony Effect’s products, we have the same packaging color scheme – Rose gold & Navy blue. The front is in english and back in korean ( wish it was all in english, as for the shade name ). Now, the brand itself has a unique logo, in the shape of a sign for voltage (or thunder 😊 ). In this case, the color of the logo, represents the tint’s shade. You get 8.5gr/0.3oz of product ( a very nice ammount ), with a shelf life of 24 months after opening. The product is made in Korea by MemeBox.

Kao što vidite, tinta dolazi u elegantnoj kartonskoj kutijici, dok se sam proizvod nalazi u čvrstoj plastičnoj tubici, sa standardnim sunđerastim aplikatorom za nanošenje proizvoda. Kao i kod ostale Pony Effect kozmetike, pakovanje je dvobojno – kombinacija roze zlatne i teget. Spreda je natpis na engleskom a pozadi na korejskom ( što donekle otežava da zapamtite naziv nijanse na svakoj tubici ukoliko ne znate jezik). Sam brend ima karakterističan logo, u formi simbola za napon ( ili munju 😬). Boja logoa ovde označava koje je nijanse sama tinta. Dobijate 8 gr proizvoda ( više nego dovoljna količina) sa rokom trajanja od 24 meseca nakon otvaranja. Proizvod je napravljen u Koreji od strane kompanije Memebox.

 

About the lip tint product / Malo o samom proizvodu

 

So, as the title says, this is a ” lip tint ” or as some would say a “lip stain”. For those who aren’t so familiar with this kind of lip product, this is something that I would put in between a lip gloss and – depending on the lip tint’s color intensity/finish / pigmentation, and a liquid lipstick.

In a sense, I’d say – something of a hybrid. When it comes to the product’s consistency it’s usually more runny ( very watery or in a gel like form ) – compared to a lip gloss or a liquid lipstick. As for the product’s finish – it can be glossy or more with a matte or velvet finish. Their main purpose is to give the lips a nice subtle (or bold) color , with a longer staying power than a lip gloss or lipstick (since they “tint” or “stain” the lips). 

 

Kao što i sam naziv proizvoda kaže, ovde je u pitanju tzv. tinta za usne. Ukoliko se do sada niste susreli sa ovakvim konceptom proizvoda za usne, ovo je nešto što bih ja stavila u kategoriju hibrida – nešto između sjaja i tečnog karmina za usne. Po teksturi i konzistenciji, dosta je laganiji i ređi, u poređenju sa jednim sjajem ili tečnim karminom. Kada govorimo o samom finišu, mogu biti kako sa sjajnim finišem, tako i sa mat ili baršunastom završnicom. Osnovna funkcija tinte je da usnama daje jednu suptilnu ili pak smeliju nijansu, koja će se zadržati na usnama duži vremenski period naspram sjaja ili karmina ( s obzirom da imaju tzv. efekat “bojenja” usana ).

 

Functionality & Usability / Funkcionalnost i upotrebljivost

Lip tints are very popular in South Korea, I’d say even more popular than lipsticks and lip gloss. When you look at it, I completely understand why. It’s supposed to be more comfortable to wear and re-applying is also less often, because of its staying power. Looks very natural, so it’s great even for those who don’t like to wear a lot of makeup. Gives you a healthy look and brightens the face, all in all – in theory, it’s just a perfect product on the go.

You can wear them in two ways : a more western style – in several layers, the way you would wear a liquid lipstick, or wear it in a more asian style – rocking the famous “gradient lip” ( you apply a bit of foundation/concealer as a base to caunteract the pigment in your lips. Then you apply the tint just in the inner center of your lips, blending it outwards to the rims, to get that shear, fading effect ).

I didn’t use foundation on/around the lips on purpose, just to see the tint’s longevity… Also, I didn’t edit these pictures, didn’t clean the lip rims, fix discoloration, peach fuzz, blur, etc., so the skin you see around my lips is actually bare ( photos are taken with my frontal phone camera in HDR mode /13mp/ natural light ).

Tinte  su vrlo popularne u Južnoj Koreji, moglo bi se reći čak  i popularnije od karmina i sjaja za usne. U osnovi, tinte bi trebale biti mnogo prijatnije za nošenje naspram recimo tečnog karmina, postojanost je takođe po pravilu duža. Uz adekvatnu nijansu, možete postići jedan vrlo prirodan i svež izgled, tako da su odlične za osobe koje ne vole da nose mnogo šminke. Generalno, odličan proizvod za svaki dan i za sve uzraste.

Što se tiče same upotrebe tinti, možete ih nositi na dva načina : više zapadnjački – slojevito, na način kako biste nosili tečni karmin, ili u skladu sa azijskim trendom tzv. ” gradient” usana ( kao osnovu na usne stavljate puder/korektor, nebili neutralisali njihovu boju. Zatim nanosite tintu na centralni, unutrašnji deo usana, blendirajući proizvod ka samom obodu za jedan ombre efekat ).

Application & Impressions / Nanošenje i utisci

 

So, I got this lip tint in the shade “Beautiful”. Now, the color is described as a light coral pink, but when I look at the color on my lips in person, I would rather describe it as a fuchsia or magenta . The product is very lightweight, not as runny like some other tints, and pretty easy to apply. The doe foot applicator is also nice to work with ( I wasn’t too precise when test applying on purpose, and I’d say it came out pretty neat in pictures). Of course, if you don’t like these applicators, you can always use a lip brush with the product. The tint is pretty scented (some won’t like that) has a nice, fruity, cherry scent. When you lick your lips, they feel a bit sweet, but it leaves no weird after taste in the mouth, which is a plus. This tint has a semi-matte finish.

Uzela sam tintu u nijansi “Beautiful”. Boja je opisana kao koralno pink, mada s obzirom kako izgleda na mojim usnama, pre bih je nazvala magenta nijansom pink. Proizvod je vrlo lagan, ne toliko redak poput nekih drugih tinti i vrlo se lako nanosi. Dolazi sa standardnim sunđerastim aplikatorom za nanošenje proizvoda, na koji zaista nemam zamerki. Naravno, ukoliko ne volite ove aplikatore, uvek možete koristiti i četkicu za usne. Tinta je moram reći dosta parfimisana (nekima se to neće svideti) – vrlo prijatan voćni miris, poput višnje. Kada liznete usne, oseća se jedna blaga slatkoća ali ne ostavlja nikakav čudan ukus u ustima, što je super. Ova tinta ima polu mat finis.

 

 

Pony recommends for the product to be layered as a lipstick. By this I mean – one coat of tint / let it set/ remove any excess with tissue/ second coat /set/tissue again/ etc., repeating this with as much layers as you want. The product layers beautifully, had no issues with this. Starts a bit tacky as you apply it, but once it sets, you’re good. The color is very buildable ( 3 coats are ideal) and won’t accentuate the lips texture. I have to say, it is perfection on the lips – it doesn’t dry out my lips at all ( which can happen with some liquid lipsticks and tints). The product perfectly moves with the lips if it makes any sense 😀 . Super comfortable to wear, I literally forget I have anything on my lips. If you layer it as recommended, it really doesn’t transfer and it’s also smudge proof. Now, as for the staying power, you do need re-applying after a few hours, especially if you eat and drink (had no issues with  layering the product). But, you won’t loose the color more than 60 % (which is good for a tint) . The lips are pretty stained and you’ll need micellar water to rub it all off. The product gradually fades, it doesn’t flake. Re-applying is super easy. It also doesn’t bleed as you can see below. 

I went right to the rim’s edge on the upper lip and a bit above the lower lip’s rim, to see if it will bleed/move – Nope, it didn’t. Also, it didn’t fade a lot more after this.

Poni savetuje da se tinta nanese poput karmina. U smislu, sloj tinte / sačekati da se slegne proizvod/ skinuti višak boje maramicom/ sledeći sloj / i tako onoliko slojeva koliko želite. Boja tinte se lako nadograđuje, kada je prvo nanesete, malo je lepljiva ali onog momenta kada se osuši, više je ne osećate na usnama. Proizvod se divno pomera sa usnama, zaista nemate osećaj da vam se uopšte išta nalazi na njima. Ne isušuje, a 3 sloja su idealna da dobijete jednu ravnomernu, intenzivnu boju. Ukoliko ga nanesete kako je preporučeno, zaista nema transfera. Boja se takođe ne razliva, što je jako bitno. Što se tiče same postojanosti, moraćete da je dodatno nanosite nakon par sati, pogotovu ako ste nešto jeli i pili . Boja dosta ravnomerno bledi, ne kruni se. Svakako nećete nikad izgubiti više od 60 % boje (sto je za tintu sasvim oke). Neophodna je micelarna voda kako biste je u potpunosti uklonili. 

Ingredients / Sastav

 

Like most korean makeup, this is also a skin care infused product. The tint is enriched with a nourishing flower complex and hyaluronic acid. The tint is also a cruelty-free product , without ingredients like : sulfates, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, alcohol, mit, talc, mineral oil, tea, triclosan, coal tar, formaldehyde-releasers, dye ( does contain parabens ).

Kao i ostala korejska kozmetika, i ovaj proizvod je obogaćen sastojcima iz oblasti preparativne kozmetike. U ovom slučaju to je dodatak hijaluronske kiseline i nekoliko biljnih ekstrakata. Borba protiv znakova starenja je korejcima jako bitna i kroz dekorativnu kozmetiku. Proizvod nije testiran na životinjama i kao sastojke ne sadrži : boje, formaldehid, mineralno ulje, propilen glikol, katran, alkohol, sulfate, sodium lauril sulfat, triklosan, ftalate, metilizotiazolinon ( sadrži parabene).

 

The ingredients COSDNA list for one of the colors ( unfortunately, I couldn’t find the list for this exact shade on the website, but they all have the same base, just different coloring ingredients) :

Lista sastava ( nisam mogla da nađem na sajtu listu sastojaka za ovu nijansu, ali u osnovi sve se baziraju na istoj formuli, samo je razlika u korišćenim pigmentima ) :

As you can see, there’s hyaluronic acid, rose, damask rose and centaurena cyanus (although all pretty low on the list) – all three are good for hydration, some also known as ingredients high in antioxidants ( roses are rich in vitamin C ).

Hijaluronska kiselina, ekstrakt ruža i različak ( mada su svi dosta nisko na listi ) – sva tri sastojka su poznata po svojoj hidratantnoj sposobnosti kao i visokim sadržajem antioksidanata ( ruže su bogate vitaminom C ).

Any remarks ? / Ikakve zamerke ?

Have no issues with this product. Some won’t be satisfied with the staying power, I’m personally fine with it ( to be honest, having something on my lips that you can’t get off at all, would freak me out, so… xD ) . Again, It’s a matter of personal preference really. 🙂

Nemam nikakvih zamerki.  Neki možda neće biti zadovoljni sa njenom postojanošću ( mene iskreno ne privlači da na usnama imam nešto što se apsolutno uopšte ne skida, tako da… xD ). Što se mene lično tiče, ja sam zaista zadovoljna.

 

Do I recommend ? / Da li preporučujem ?

 

Absolutely !. I really liked this tint. It’s perfect for summer, especially with a nice tan. The ease of application, pigmentation, decent staying power – In general, I don’t see lip tints as products with more longevity than liquid lipsticks. So, I can’t complain much. If you like lip tints, or you want to try some, definitely check these out !. 🙂 I bought mine via TesterKorea for the price of 16,150 krw + shipping ( this varies based on the parcel’s weight ).

Definitivno !. Zaista mi se sviđa ova tinta, divna je za leto. Lako se nanosi, vrlo pigmentovana, zadovoljavajuća postojanost…Zaista nemam mnogo zamerki – Ja generalno ne vidim tinte kao proizvod duže postojanosti od tečnog karmina. Ukoliko volite tinte, ili želite da probate neku po prvi put, ove imaju moju toplu preporuku !. 🙂 Tintu možete poručiti preko sajta TesterKorea a cena joj je 16.150 krw + poštarina  ( visina poštarine zavisi od težine paketa ).

That’s it for my long review, hope you liked it ! 🙂
