The Best New Year's Eve lips with ArtDeco

artdeco-glamour-crystal-garden-collection

Še malo pa bo napočil čas za najdaljšo noč v letu. Seveda je za posebno noč primerno tudi posebno ličenje. Danes je na vrsti moj predlog za najlepše in najbolj posebne ustnice. Za ta videz potrebuješ dva izdelka iz najbolj praznične kolekcije to leto - ArtDeco Crystal Garden, ki jo je navdihnila lepota kristalov, Swarovski kristalov. Celotna kolekcija je v znamenju bleščečega glamurja, cvetoče energije, pozabili pa niso tudi na še zmeraj zaželjene mat šminke.
There's only a little time left until New Year's Eve. Of course such a special night calls for a special make up look. Today I have the prettiest and most special lip look for you. For this look you need only two products from the most festive collection this year, ArtDeco Crystal Garden, inspired by the beauty of the crystals, Swarovski crystals. Entire collection is marked by dazzling glamour, flower energy and they haven't forgoten about the still popular matte lipsticks.
artdeco-glamour-crystal-garden-collection-matte-lipstick-hibiscus-blossom

Moja prva izbira je, seveda, rdeča mat šminka, prekrasen odtenek po imenu 127 Hibiscus Blossom. Šminka, ki je resnično popolna za ta praznični čas, me je v trenutku očarala. Malenkost temnejša rdeča, ki ne izsuši ustnic. Obstojnost? Dokaj dobra, presenetljivo. Če sem pridna in previdna, ostane na meni skoraj cel dan. Zelo mi je všeč oblika šminke, saj s tankim robom z lahkoto narišem rob ustnic, nato pa ga zapolnim. Tekstura je odlična, mehka, sama šminka pa diši po vaniliji.
My first choice is, of course, a matte red lipstick, gorgeous shade that has a name 127 Hibiscus Blossom. Lipstick, perfect for this festive time, has instantly charmed me. A slightly darker red that doesn't dry out the lips. Staying power? Surprisingly good. If I am carefull and good, I can wear it almost whole day. I love the shape of the lipstick, I use the thin edge to outline the lips and then I fill it out. The texture is great, soft, and the lipstick smells like vanilla.
artdeco-glamour-crystal-garden-collection-matte-lipstick-hibiscus-blossom-swatch

Tisto piko na pa bo mojim ustnicam dal prav poseben izdelek, katerega sem se zelo veselila preizkusit, hkrati pa sem bila neizmerno skeptična - Powder Lip Finish, puder v prahu, ki vsakšno šminku v hipu spremeni v iskrečo mavrico. Ne po opisu, ne po promo fotki si nisem znala ravno predstavljat, kaj točno ta izdelek je.
The finishing touch to the look will be given by a special product that I was very happy but at the same time I was immeasurable sceptical to try - Powder Lip Finish, loose powder, that changes every lipstick into shiny rainbow. Not by the description, not by promo shots I couldn't figure out what this product actually is. 

artdeco-glamour-crystal-garden-collection-matte-lipstick-hibiscus-blossom-powder-lip-finish

No, sedaj vem. Je prekrasen prah, ki dejansko ustnice spremeni v bleščečo mavrico. Seveda je nanos za vsak dan časovno prezahteven, a za posebne priložnosti se splača potrudit. Hranjenja ne bo preživel, vendar na srečo ne škoduje zdravju. Je unikaten izdelek, na našem tržišču ni moč najti ničesar podobnega.
Well, now I know. It's a gorgeous powder that changes my lips into dazzling rainbow. Of course application is too time consuming for everyday but for special occasions it is worth trying. It doesn't survive food and luckily it isn't harmful. A unique product, there isn't anything similar on our market.

Kakšen bo pa vaš videz za najdaljšo noč tega leta?
What will your make up be for the longest night of the year?
Xoxo, A.

Last-minute Christmas gift guide [SLO only]



Še nimate božičnih daril? Danes vam predstavljam svoj izbor za letošnja božična darila.

1. MOJSTRI OKUSOV MARMELADA JURKA
Moja najnajnanjljubša marmelada. In ne samo, da je dobra, samo poglejte si to embalažo!

2. MOJSTRI OKUSOV CHILI SMOKED
Izdelek, ki je pri nas doma pravi hit. Za vse ljubitelje pekočega, je tole odlično darilo!

3. ZISHA ČAJ SNEŽNA KRALJICA SUPERIOR
Za vse ljubitelje čaja je tole idealno. Beli čaj je tako ali tako poezija v tekoči obliki, tale pa je na voljo še v super lušni posodici. 

4. TORRAS BELA ČOKOLADA Z MORSKIMI ALGAMI IN ČRNO MORSKO SOLJO
Za bolj pogumne in željne eksperimentiranja je ta čokolada s strašno čudnimi sestavinami(morske alge?!?) tisto darilo, ki se ga bodo še dolgo z veseljem spominjali. In naj vas pomirim, navkljub neobičajnim sestavinam je izredno dobrega okusa!

5. TORRAS ČRNA ČOKOLADA BREZ SLADKORJA Z BANANO
Kdo bi se branil čokolade? Ta je povrhu vsega še brez sladkorja, banana in čokolada pa sta tako ali tako bili ustvarjeni za skupaj.


Izdelki iz kakavovega masla, ki jih odlikuje odličen vonj in super rezultat. In njihove darilne embalaže so krasne!

Skrivnostna in elegantna, je prekrasno darilo za katerokoli žensko v tvojem življenju, tudi zate ;) Moj naj izdelek je Metallic Eye Colour Fluid, senčilo za oči v kremni obliki, ki me je res navdušilo s svojo posebno barvo!

V darilnem setu so krema za telo in gel za tuširanje skupaj z deodorantom. Popolna zimska pravljica.

Olje, ki ne samo, da bo prišlo prav za najdaljši dan tega leta, ko bo potrebno pokazati malo gole kože, pa ne škodi, da je ta tudi malo porjavela, ampak je odlično tudi za vsakodnevno nego kože - odlično diši in koža je po uporabi izredno mehka!

5. ACQUA COLONIA RED APPLE & CHILLI
Dišava, ki me je začarala. Verjamem, da se v tej liniji najdejo dišave za vsak okus, embalaža pa je krasno praznična!



Torbica, ki je lepa in super priročna. Jaz jo, odkar jo imam, uporabljam neprestano in prepričana sem, da bi je bila vesela vsaka modna navdušenka.

Broška, ki me prepriča s svojo eleganco in je svetleča stalnica na mojem elegantnem plašču. Za vse fashioniste!

Ne samo dišeča svečka, ampak tudi recikliranje. Odlična ideja, ki se je združila s krasnim vonjem!

Vsi vemo, da so dandanes rokovniki nekaj nepogrešljivega in če so še tako lepi, kot so tile... je najboljše darilo zagotovljeno!

Lonček za kavo ali čaj vsakomur pride prav. Če pa k uporabnosti dodamo še lep dizajn, je pa to zmagovalna kombinacija!

Tole so moje ideje za božična darila v zadnjem trenutku. Sama sem letos nakupe opravila dovolj hitro, zato ni več panike za darila. Pa ve? Še iščete ali ste že našle svoja idealna darila?

Xoxo, A.

Simple Daily Make Up with Avon

simple-daily-make-up-with-avon-selfie

Danes je na sporedu nežno dnevno ličenje z Avonom. Za ta videz sem uporabila izdelke, ki jih vedno znova z veseljem uporabljam.
Today is time for soft daily make up look with Avon. For this look I used products I gladly use again and again.

simple-daily-make-up-with-avon

Prvi izdelek na spisku je Avon True Colour Mocha Latte Eyeshadow Quad. Četvorček senčil za oči z bolj naravnimi, zemeljskimi toni, ki je kot nalašč za vsakodnevno ličenje.
First product on the list is Avon True Colour Mocha Latte Eyeshadow Quad. Eyeshadow quad with four natural, earthly toned eyeshadows was made for everyday make up.
avon-True-Colour-Mocha-Latte-Eyeshadow-Quad

Embalaža je lepa, črna, z napisom Avon, je pa tudi dovolj trdna in nimam občutka, da se bo zlomila. Odpre se z lahkoto, kar je sreča, jaz se ponavadi mučim z odpiranjem raznoraznih paletk. V notranjosti so štiri senčila, aplikator in ogledalce. Aplikator je zame neuporaben, saj za nanos ličil uporabljam čopiče.
The packaging is pretty and black with "Avon" imprinted in it. It's sturdy and I don't have a feeling it'll break. It opens easily, luckily for me since most of the time I have troubles with opening different palettes. Inside there are four eyeshadows, applicator and a mirror. Applicator is useless for me, I prefer brushes for applying make up.
avon-True-Colour-Mocha-Latte-Eyeshadow-Quad-swatch

Kot že rečeno, so senčila štiri, svetla bež z rahlim šimrom, mat svetlo rjava, bronasto zlata s šimrom in mat temno rjava. Vse štiri so zadovoljivo pigmentirane. Presenetila me je pigmentacija mat senčil, ki so res zelo pigmentirane in se odlično vidijo, bronasta senčka pa da res čudovit šimer, ki ni presvetleč, svetla bež pa je čudovita za osvetljevanje.
As said before, there are four eyeshadows, light beige with shimmer, matte loght brown, bronze gold with shimmer and matte dark brown. All four are satisfactory pigmented. I was surprised by the pigmentation of matte eyeshadows, they are super pigmented and are very visible on skin, the bronze one gives really pretty shimmer and the light beige is gorgeous for highlighting.
Avon-Big-Multiplied-Volume-Mascara

Naslednja je Avon Big&Multiplied Volume Mascara. Maskara za oči, ki obljublja volumen. Priznam, tole ni ravno moja najljubša maskara, je pa primerna za dnevni videz. Trepalnice lepo loči, vendar jih zame žal ne podaljša dovolj, zato je ne bi uporabila za kak bolj glamurozen videz. Je pa to edina maskara do zdaj, s katero nimam težav z nanašanjem, saj nimam odtisa maskara na zgornji veki.
Avon-Big-Multiplied-Volume-Mascara-swatch

Next is Avon Big&Multiplied Volume Mascara. Mascara that promises volume. I have to confess this actually isn't my favourite mascara, but it is suitable for daily look. It separates my lashes nicely but it doesn't give them enough lenght for me, I wouldn't use it for some glamorous look. But it is the only mascara so far that I don't have a problem applying it, since I don't have a mascara smudges on my upper lid.
Avon-Glow-Bronzing-Pearls-Pink-Bronze

Avon Glow Bronzing Pearls Pink Bronze so kroglice, namenjene kot bronzer, vendar jih sama povečini uporabljam kot rdečilo za lica, saj dajo lepo rožnato barvo. Zelo rada jih uporabljam, saj dajo mojim ličnicam naraven, zardel videz, uporaba pa je enostavna. Edino na kar res pazim je, da ne potisnem premočno čopiča v kroglice, saj se včasih katera ulovi v čopič.
Avon Glow Bronzing Pearls Pink Bronze are pearls intended for bronzing but I mostly used them for blush, since they have nice pink tone to it. I love to use them, they give my cheeks natural, blushed look and they are easy to use. The only thing to be carefull about is don't push your brush to hard into them, a pearl can get stuck in the brush.
Avon-True-Colour-Perfect-Reds-Lipstick-Scarlet-Siren

Piko na i vsakemu videzu da šminka. Jaz tudi čez dan rada nosim opazne šminke, zato sem izbrala Avon True Colour Perfect Reds Lipstick Scarlet Siren. Res krasna rdeča kremna šminka. Embalaža je elegantna, svetleče črna, kar pa je meni res pri srcu, je dejstvo, da je na vrhu pokrovček brezbarven in se, tudi ko jo imam pospravljeno v predalu, skozi vidi barva!
The dot on the i for every look is a lipstick. I like to wear noticeable lipsticks during the day too, so I choose Avon True Colour Perfect Reds Lipstick Scarlet Siren. Really great red lipstick. The packaging is elegant, shiny black. What is great is the see trough square on the top of the lid, so you can see the colour of the lipstick even when you have it in the drawer!
Avon-True-Colour-Perfect-Reds-Lipstick-Scarlet-Siren-swatch

Čeprav ni zabetonirana na usta in se odtisi poznajo na kozarcu ali pa pri poljubu, je meni osebno zelo pri srcu. Uporabna je tako za dnevni kot tudi za bolj glamurozen videz. Je zelo kremna in mastna, maže se z lahkoto, kar pa mi je najbolj všeč je dejstvo, da mojih ustnic ne izsuši ampak daje občutek negovanosti in nahranjenosti. Velik plus tudi za dejstvo, da ni lepljiva. Občutek na ustnicah je naravnost odličen!
Unfortunatelly there are visible prints on your glass or when you are kissing, but I still really like it. It can be used for daily look as well as for more glamorous look. It's very creamy and buttery, it applies with ease and most of all I like that it doesn't dry out my lips but they feel nourished and moisturized. A big plus for not being sticky. The feeling on the lips is just great!

Za konec uporabim Avon Make Up Setting Spray. Utrjevalec make up-a v razpršilu. Da ostanejo ličila na mestu cel dan. Izdelek, s katerim sem res zadovoljna, saj resnično izpolni svojo nalogo, hkrati pa moji koži ne povzroča problemov. Uporabljam ga tudi, ko imam več ličil na obrazu, ko res potrebujem obstojnost in ko vem, da morem izgledati popolno kar nekaj časa. 
In the end I use Avon Make Up Setting Spray. So my make up stays put the whole day. A product I am really happy with, it fulfils its duty and at the same time doesn't cause my skin any problems. I use it when I have a full-face make up, when I really need my make up in place and when I know I need to look perfect for quite some time.
Avon-True-Colour-Perfect-Reds-Cherry-Jubilee-nail-polish

Seveda pa ne smemo pozabiti na nohte. Zato je tukaj Avon True Colour Perfect Reds Cherry Jubilee lak za nohte. Prekrasen, temno rdeč lepotec, prekriven v dveh slojih, ki se hitro suši. Obstojnost ni ravno popolna, na meni zdrži do pet dni, ponavadi pa se začnejo konice kazat po treh dneh.
Of course we shouldn't forget about our nails. That's why Avon True Colour Perfect Reds Cherry Jubilee is here. Gorgoues dark red beauty, fully opaque in two coats that dries fast. It is not long lasting, on me it lasts up to five days, but usually the tips come trough after around three days.

Kako so pa vam kaj všeč Avonovi izdelki? Kateri je vaš najljubši? Ste vedele, da lahko Avonove izdelke kupite tudi v spletni trgovini salma.si?
How do you like Avon products? Which one is you favourite?

New In: November 2016


November je bil mesec, v katerem je k meni prišlo ogromno izdelkov. Tako da se kar pripravite na dooolgooo objavo z ogromno slikami!
November was the month of many new products. Better prepare yourself for a loong post with lots of pictures!

Prvi paketek, ki sem se ga neizmerno razveselila, je skrival prečudovito Too Faced Chocolate Bar paletko - za vse, ki me sprašujete, kje sem jo dobila, dobila sem jo preko menjave ;) - ter dve krasni darilci, Dr. PawPaw Tinted Peach Pink Balm in Hair Conditioner Rose&Chamomile.

The first package that really made me happy was hiding a gorgeous Too Faced Chocolate Bar eyeshadow palette - for everyone interested where I got it, it was a swap ;) - and two awesome gifts, Dr. PawPaw Tinted Peach Pink Balm and Hair Conditioner Rose&Chamomile.

Kmalu za tem sem prejela prekrasen paketek z ArtDeco in Make Up Factory izdelki.
ArtDeco Glamour Crystal Garden je nastala v sodelovanju s podjetjem Swarovski. Inspiracije so kristali, zato si lahko predstavljate, da se večina izdelkov sveti in blešči. No, če odštejemo mat šminke. Sama sem si izbrala štiri izdelke: 
Shortly after that I received a lovely package with ArtDeco and Make Up Factory products.
ArtDeco Crystal Garden was made in cooporation with Swarovski. The inspiration? Crystals, so you can imagine most of the products shine and glitter. The one exception being matte lipsticks. I choose four products: 

Crystal Beauty Dust, nežen svetleč prah, ki povrhu vsega še diši.

Prefect Mat Lipstick 127 Hibiscus Blossom, matte lipstick in a gorgeous red shade.

Make Up Factory Dark Elegance of a Swan je kolekcija, ki izraža tisto posebno baletno eleganco. Izdelki so krasni, skrivnosti in sofisticirani. Tudi pri tej kolekciji sem si izbrala štiri izdelke: 
Cashmire Shimmer Mousse 07 Sheer Glow je namenjen osvetljevanju.
Metallic Eye Color Fluid 28 Iridescent Blue je kremno metalik senčilo, primerno za več različnih načinov uporabe.
Eye Shadow 27 Darkest Blue je temno modro senčilo za oči.
Liquid Eye Liner 05 Elegant Blue pa je namenjen ustvarjanju eyeliner črte.

Make Up Factory Dark Elegance of a Swan is a collection that reflect the elegance of a ballerina. The products are magnificent, myterious and sophisticated. I also choose four products here:
Cashmire Shimmer Mousse 07 Sheer Glow intended for highlighting.

Metallic Eye Color Fluid 28 Iridescent Blue, cream metallic eyeshadow you can use in multiple ways.
Eye Shadow 27 Darkest Blue is a dark blue eyeshadow.
Liquid Eye Liner 05 Elegant Blue to create the perfect eye liner line.

Obiskala tudi Primark, od koder sem prinesla tri izdelke: tople nogavičke, ki so v teh mrzlih mesecih obvezne ter dve tekoči šminki - Metal Matte Liquid Lipstick Goddess in Super Matte Liquid Lipstick Kylie.

I also went to Primark and there I bought three items: warm socks that are a must-have in this cold months and two liquid lipsticks - Metal Matte Liquid Lipstick Goddess and Super Matte Liquid Lipstick Kylie.

Novembra sem se razveselila tudi paketkov od naslednjih: Labello, Avon, Born Pretty Store ter Nivea. 
Labello je novembra lansiral nov obarvan balzam za ustnice Blackberry Shine, ki zraven vonja po robodnicah daje tudi čudovito rdečo barvo le-teh.
Avon je za ta praznični čas pripravil popolno kombinacijo - Perfect Reds, kolekcijo rdečih lakov za nohte in šmink, moja sta lak v odtenku Cherry Jubilee in šminka Scarlet Siren.
Pri Born Pretty Store so me razveselili z dvema ploščicama za štempljanje za nohte, tekoči lateks, da ne bom več packala ob ustvarjanju na nohtih in Magical Halo Long Lasting LipGloss 30 - temno rdeča tekoča šminka, ki se posuši v mat zaključek
Nivea CELLular Anti-Age Volume Filing Day Care SPF15 pa je dnevna krema za zapolnitev volumna, z zaščitnim faktorjem, ki je posebej razvita, da koži povrne njen mladostni volumen.

In November I've also received the packages from the following: Labello, Avon, Born Pretty Store and Nivea.
Labello launched in November new stained lip balm Blackberry shine, that smells like blackberries and in addition gives the beautiful red colour of them. 
Avon prepared a perfect combination for this festive season - Perfect Reds, collection which constist of red nail polishes and red lipsticks. I received nail polish in shade Red Jubilee and lipstick Scarlet Siren.
Born Pretty Store send me two nail stamping plates, liquid latex, so I won't be messy anymore when doing my manicure and Magical Halo Long Lasting LipGloss 30 - dark red liquid lipstick that dries up into a matte finish.
Nivea CELLular Anti-Age Volume Filling Day Care SPF15 is a day cream for filling the volume with SPF that is specially designed to restore the skin its youthfull volume.

Kupila sem tudi druge malenkosti, ki sem jih potrebovala. 
Prvi je BioBazin Bee Balm Ginger&Honey, balzam za ustnice v vonju ingverja in medu, ki ustnice ščiti pred izsuševanjem v vseh vremenskih razmerah.
Oriflame The One Everlasting Foundation Porcelain, tekoči puder, ki obljublja izjemno obstojnost in udoben občutek na koži.
Montagne Jeunesse Glacial Clay maska za obraz v robcu.
I also bought few bits and pieces that I needed.
The first iz BioBaza Bee Balm Ginger&Honey, lip balm that smells like ginger and honey and protects the lips from drying in all weather conditions.

Oriflame The One Everlasting Foundation Porcelain, liquid foundation that promises ultra lasting and high comfort  wear.
Montagne Jeunesse Glacial Clay is a face mask in a tissue.

Konec novembra sem se udeležila tudi lepotno blogerske božične zabave, ki sta jo organizirali Gejba (Parokeets) in Ajda (Ajda's), kjer smo udeleženke prejele tudi čudovita darilca.
Že na začetku so nas na mizah pričakale Stow Coffee Roasters kavne mešanice. Ker sama nisem ljubitelj kave, sem v mislih imela svojega fanta, ki je velik ljubitelj kave. Zato sem izbrala okus Cascara, ki izvira iz Nikaragve, in ima arome fig, suhega sadja, hibiskusa in tobaka.
Prvi izdelek, ki me je resnično razveselil, je 4722 Acqua Colonia Red Apple & Chili, kolonjska vodica z vonji, ki vzbudijo človekovo čutno plat.
Dobile smo tudi dve darilni vrečki. Prva, Avonova je skrivala tri krasne zadeve, iskreno lahko priznam, da sem se najbolj razveselila Carribean Escape maske za obraz, saj so njihove maske za obraz pri meni visoko na lestvici najljubših. Ta vsebuje zdrobljene bisere in morske alge, namenjena pa je osvetljevanju obraza. V vrečki sta se skrivala tudi dva izdelka iz Luxe linije, ki resnično izgleda zelo elegantno. Šminka v odtenku Red Haute je krasna rdečka, ki vsebuje drobne bleščice, paleta senčil za oči Golden Smoke pa vsebuje 5 senčil zemeljskih odtenkov.
Druga vrečka v sebi skriva izdelke slovenskega porekla in na njej piše Afrodita. Prva stvar, ki sem jo potegnila iz vrečkice, so Vita Derma ampule s Hyaluronom. Namenjene so koži po 25letu starosti, ki ji primankuje vlage. Prejele smo tudi Clean Up Cleansing Foam Chamomile Sensitive, čistilno peno za obraz, ki kožo temeljito očisti a je ne izsuši. Zadnji izdelek pa je Clean Up Hydro Tonic Hyaluron, čistilni tonik s 100% naravno hialuronsko kislino, ki intenzivno pospeši optimalno vlaženje kože.

At the end of November I also attended a beauty blogger's Christmas party, that was organised by Gejba (Parokeets) and Ajda (Ajda's) and everyone attending got awesome gifts.
At the beginning there were Stor Coffee Roasters coffee blends on each of the tables. As I'm not a big fan of coffee myself, I had in mind my boyfriend when I choose Cascara blend from Nicaragua that has the aroma of figs, dry fruit, hibiscus and tobacco.
The first product that I was really happy to get was 4722 Acqua Colonia Red Apple & Chili, a cologne water with scents that evoke human's sensual side.
We also received two gift bags. The first from Avon was hidding three amazing items but I can honestly say I was the most happy about Carribean Escape face mask, since Avon's masks are high on my list of favourites. This one contains crushed pearls and sea algaes and it is intended for brightening. There were also two items from Luxe line that looks really elegant. A lipstick in shade Red Haute, a gorgeous red that contains small shimmer and eyeshadow palette Golden Smoke that has 5 eyeshadows in earthy shades.
The other bag was hiding Slovenian items and it has written Afrodita on. The first thing I pulled out of the bag are Vita Derma ampoules with Hyaluron. They are for skin after 25 that lacks hidration. We also received Clean Up Cleansing Foam Chamomile Sensitive, cleansing foam that cleanses your skin thoroughly but it doesn't dry it out. The last product is Clean Up Hydro Tonic Hyaluron, cleaning Tonic with 100% natural hyaluronic acid that intensivelly speeds up teh optimal skin hydration.

Ste same preizkusile kak omenjen izdelek? Vesela bom vašega mnenja!
Have you tried any of the products mentioned? I am happy to hear your thoughts!

Xoxo, A.

Essence Midnight Masquerade and The Little X-Mas Factory Limited Edition

essence-midnight-masquerade-little-x-mas-factory

Tokrat sem se odločila, da v eno objavo združim kar dve Essence omejeni kolekciji, saj je že obe moč najti na poličkah. Iz vsake kolekcije imam za vas predstavitev dveh izdelkov.
This time I've decided to join two Essence limited editions in one post since both can already be found in our stores. I have two items to present from each edition.

MIDNIGHT MASQUERADE

essence-midnight-masquerade-limited-edition

DUO OMBRE LIPSTICK 01 Dance Till Dawn

essence-midnight-masquerade-dance-till-dawn

O tej sem že ogromno govorila na Instagramu, saj me je navdušila. No, črnega dela ne bom uporabljala kaj veliko, barvni, temno rdeč del pa bom z veseljem uporabljala. Ustnice sicer malenkost izsuši, ampak me na srečo to ne moti preveč. Je presenetljivo obstojen, hkrati pa je tudi popolnoma mat.
I've spoken a lot about it on my Instagram, since it impressed me. Well, I won't be using the black part a lot, but I will use the colourfull, dark red part gladly. It does dry my lips a bit, but it's not bothering me. It is surprisingly durable and at the same time it is completely matte.
essence-midnight-masquerade-dance-till-dawn-swatch

EFFECT EYESHADOW 02 Spooktacular Night

essence-midnight-masquerade-spooktacular-night

Senčilo, ki me je presenetilo v vseh pogledih, pozitivno seveda. Je izredno pigmentirano, obstojno in krasne barve. Ta je sicer odvisna od nanosa, vendar je osnova zelo temna, čez pa so prekrasne bronz-rjave, izredno majhne bleščice, ki dajo barvi globino.
An eyeshadow that surprised me a in every possible way. It is extremelly pigmented, long lasting and the colour is beautiful. It depends on the application, but there is a dark brown/black base with beautiful bronze shimmer that gives the colour a depth.
essence-midnight-masquerade-spooktacular-night-swatch

THE LITTLE X-MAS FACTORY

essence-little-x-mas-factory

CONTOURING PALETTE 01 Elf Yourself

essence-little-x-mas-factory-elf-yourself

Razočaranje. Slabo pigmentirana zadeva, katere nakupa ne priporočam. Del za osvetlevanje je še uporaben, če želite nežno osvetljevanje, temen del za senčenje pa je popolna katastrofa. Nažalost se na koži sploh ne pozna. In čeprav je embalaža in sama oblika noro lepa, to ne upraviči nakupa. Škoda.
Dissapointment. Badly pigmented product and I cannot recommend the purchase. The highlighting part is kind of useful, if you are really shy and want only light highlights, but the dark part for contouring is practically invisible on my skin. Even if the packaging and the shape super pretty, it doesn't justify buying it. Shame.
essence-little-x-mas-factory-elf-yourself


EYESHADOW PALETTE 01 North Pole Express Delivery

essence-little-x-mas-factory-north-pole-express-delivery

Tudi ta paletka je bolj za sramežljive. Čeprav barve izgledajo noro lepo in je tudi samo pakiranje prekrasno, so senčila malenkost slabše pigmentirana in se barve na očeh ne poznajo tako lepo, so še vedno dovolj pigmentirane za nežen videz. Ni ravno top paletka, so pa barve lepe, tudi šimer v barvah mi je všeč in bom še kdaj posegla po njej.
This eyeshadow palette is also for the shy ones. The colours look really pretty and the packaging itself is gorgeous, but the eyeshadows are a bit less pigmented and the colours don't translate on the lids the way they should. They are still enough pigmented for a pretty soft daily look. It's not a top palette, but the colours are nice, I like the shimmer in the eyeshadows and I will use it again.

Ste ve preizkusile kaj iz omenjenih kolekcij? Kakšno je pa vaše mnenje?
Have you tried anything from this limited editions? What do you think about them?
