Colourpop haul

My Colourpop order finally arrived, two full packages of make-up just for me! In the beginning of May, Colourpop was celebrating their b-day by offering free international shipping and naturally I jumped at the chance. Although both my orders totaled under 22 € (which is the magic limit so you don’t have to pay VAT, in case you were wondering), Colourpop declared the value as much higher on the package and both packages were held and opened by our lovely Slovenian customs which cost me additional 5 € per package for their “control” and a whole lot of nerves. So this might be the last Colourpop order for a while…

Moja Colourpop paketka sta končno tu! Dve škatli, polni ličil, samo zame! V začetku maja je Colourpop praznoval rojstni dan in svoje uporabnice nagradil z brezplačno poštnino po vsem svetu, kar sem seveda izkoristila. Čeprav sta obe moji naročili znašali manj kot 22 € (kar je magična meja, da se izogneš plačilu DDV-ja), je Colourpop na paketka napisal višjo vrednost (brez popustov) in čudoviti gospodje na carini so se odločili, da je potrebno oba paketka nujno pregledati. To me je stalo še dodatnih 5 € na paket, kar me vsekakor niti najmanj ne navdušuje, zato bo verjetno to za nekaj časa tudi zadnje Colourpop naročilo.

Anyway, I ordered a bunch of different items and got them at a really good price and they even threw some additional gifts in there. Since I recently dyed my hair back to blonde from dark brown, I needed some new brow products to match my hair color. I chose both the pot and the pencil in the color Honey Blonde, which is a warm toned blonde. I must say it matches my brows quite well and doesn’t have any grey undertones which are so common with brow products for blondes. The pencil is especially great – a very slim tip makes for a precise application and the spoolie on the other side is very practical for a comb-through afterwards. The pot cost 6 $ and the pencil 5 $ which is really not a lot considering the amount of product you’re getting.  Verdict: 5/5 for both of these.

Naročila sem cel kup različnih izdelkov po super cenah, zraven pa dobila še nekaj darilc. Ker sem si pred kratkim lase iz temno rjave barve po nekaj letih ponovno pobarvala na blond, sem potrebovala tudi nove izdelke za obrvi. Izbrala sem pomado in svinčnik v odtenku Honey Blonde. Barva je za moje obrvi super, prav tako pa nima nobenih sivih podtonov, ki so tako značilni za svetle odtenke izdelkov za obrvi. Še posebej sem navdušena nad svinčnikom, ki ima izredno tanko konico za natačno vrisovanje dlačic, ščetka na drugi strani pa je prav tako koristna, da na koncu obrvi še natančno prečešem. Cena pomade je 6 $, svinčnika pa 5 $, kar se mi ne zdi veliko, sploh glede na to, da je v obojih kar velika količina izdelka.

Next up were the lipsticks. I wanted to stay away from the matte formula since I didn’t have the best experience with it but couldn’t resist buying the Ultra Matte Lip in shade Viper (6 $). It’s a dark rose color that looks absolutely beautiful on the lips, especially now when I’ve got a bit of (fake) tan going on. I tend to put a bit of lip gloss over it for easier wear. So far, it’s not peeling as horribly as my previous CP matte lippies, but we shall see… Verdict: 4/5, since I love the color.

Čeprav sem si obljubila, da ne bom več kupovala mat Colourpop tekočih šmink po zadnji slabi izkušnji, se nisem mogla upreti ultra mat šminki v odtenku Viper (6 $). Gre za temno rožnato barvo, ki na ustnicah izgleda prekrasna, sploh zdaj, ko sem dobila že nekoliko (umetne) porjavitve. Čez njo običajno nanesem malo lipglossa, da je nošenje bolj udobno. Do sedaj še nisem opazila groznega luščenja, ki spremlja moje druge CP mat tekoče šminke, ampak čas bo pokazal, kako je s tem. Ocena: 4/5, ker mi je barva res všeč.

I also got my first Ultra Satin Lip! I chose Bare Necessities (6$) which is a result of collaboration by Alexis Ren and CP. It’s a nice peachy pink nude, perhaps a bit more peachy than I imagined but still a beautiful shade and absolutely awesome formula as far as comfort goes. Alongside of this ultra satin, I also received a mini as a gift – it came in the shade Frick n’ Frack, a nice rose red. I don’t consider this a summer color but I’ll probably whip it out once autumn arrives. Verdict for satin lips: 5/5, so comfy!

Končno sem prišla tudi do svoje prve ultra satenaste tekoče šminke v odtenku Bare Necesities (6 $), ki je plod sodelovanja Alexis Ren in CP. Gre za oranžno-roza odtenek, ki je morda nekoliko bolj oranžen, kot sem pričakovala, vendar kljub temu čudovit, da o izredno nežni in nosljivi formuli sploh ne govorim.Poleg te satenaste šminke sem kot dodaten izdelek prejela tudi mini šminko v odtenku Frick n’ Frack, ki je rdeča šminka z roza podtonom. Ne gre ravno za poletni odtenek, ga bom pa z veseljem nosila v jeseni. Ocena za satenasti šminki: 5/5, res sta super udobni!

I’ve been waiting for ages to try out some CP eyeshadows which everyone is so excited about. Since they were offering 3 for 9,99$ (regular price 5$ for one), I naturally ordered six of them 🙂 All came in perfect condition which I’m very happy about. As you can see, I chose 5 pressed powder shadows and one super shock shadow (the one in the pot).  The pressed powder shadows are already placed in magnetic pans so I simply popped them into an empty palette and they were ready to be used.

Že lep čas sem čakala na priložnost, da končno preizkusim kakšno CP senčilo za oči, ki jih vsi tako hvalijo. V posebni akciji so ponujali 3 za 9,99 $ (običajno ena stane 5 $), zato sem jih seveda naročila šest 🙂 Vse so prišle nepoškodovane, kar me izjemno veseli. Kot lahko vidiš, sem izbrala 5 standardnih senčil (pressed powder shadows) in eno super shock senčilo (v lončku). Ker so senčke že stisnjene v magnetne podlage, sem jih enostavno vstavila v prazno paleto, po kateri sežem skoraj vsak dan.

Ringer is a nice metallic golden shade which reminds me a lot of Mary-Lou Manizer by the Balm. Bel Air is a matte taupe and the only slight disappointment since it has somewhat of a green undertone to it and I was expecting a pure taupe color. It doesn’t come across strong when blended but I must say I was expected something different.  Cut-outs is a warm matte coral, perfect for a deeper crease. I’m actually very excited to create a cut crease with this color – I think it would look stunning. Get Out is a matte cranberry and Popular demand is a matte red brown which I probably won’t wear daily but I don’t own any shade like this so I’m excited to add it to my collection. Last but not least, we have the super shock eyeshadow White Rabbit, an ultra metallic pink copper. It’s an outstanding color and I’m really excited to add it to my collection. The only downside is that it is quite difficult to apply, so I need to wet my brush and really dig in there to get it working. General verdict: 5/5, beautiful colors, easy to blend, simple to store and to transport, and good price.

Ringer je kovinska zlata barva, ki me spominja na Mary-Lou Manizer znamke The Balm. Bel Air je mat rjava barva, ki me je nekoliko razočarala zaradi svetlo zelenega podtona. Ta sicer po zabrisu senčila ni tako opazen, kot na fotografiji, vendar me odstopanja od pričakovanj vedno zmotijo. Cut-outs je topla koralna mat senčka, ki v pregibu veke izgleda izjemno in komaj čakam, da z njo ustvarim kakšen zahtevnejši videz. Get Out je mat brusnična barva, Popular Demand pa mat rdeče-rjava barva, ki je verjetno ne bom nosila prav vsak dan, vendar pa gre za popolnoma novo barvo v moji zbirki. Nenazadnje je tu še White Rabbit super-shock senčilo, ultra kovinska roza-bronasta barva. Kot lahko vidiš na fotografiji, je res izjemna in zelo pigmentirana, je pa nekoliko težja za nanos in plastenje, zato čopič pred uporabo nekoliko zmočim. Ocena: 5/5, čudovite barve, enostaven nanos in zabrisovanje, enostavno shranjevanje in dobra cena!

That’s it for my Colourpop order this time. I’m thinking of doing an Insta Chat and do my make-up using most of these CP products and some I have lying around from my previous order (like highlighters and their shadow stix for contouring) – is it something you’d like to see? Let me know and as always – until next time, stay beautiful!

To je vse, kar sem naročila tokrat. Razmišljam o Insta Chat, kjer bi uporabila večino teh izdelkov, ki sem jih naročila tokrat, pa tudi nekaj tistih, ki jih imam še od prejšnjega naročila (na primer osvetljevalec in njihove Shadow Stix za konturo) – je to nekaj, kar bi te zanimalo? Pusti mi sporočilo in seveda, kot vedno – do naslednjič ostani čudovita!

    Super Shock senčila jaz nanašam kar s prsti. Ti dajo najbolj noro pigmentacijo. Drugače pa uporabim sintetične flat čopiče, ki prav tako boljše poberejo senčilo kot kakšni fluffy. Mi je pa še vedno ljubše s prsti in potem samo zabrišem z blending čopičem.

    Ringer mi deluje zanimivo. A je to shimmer ali bolj glitter v njem? 🙂

    Tudi meni je carina zaračunala 5€. Podlog od Colourpopa za nepravilne podatke.
