Two Lipsticks: Two Make-Up Looks

8/29/2014



When I was reviewing my new MAC bits in the MAC Haul | Review & Swatches post, I promised that I'll show all the products in action as I find such make-up presentation most useful. You'll also see some other products I've been loving lately but the main focus is definitely on MAC and what a difference a lipstick makes. For my base I've used the Revelique Natural Finish Make-up in Ivory (10). Now, this is a foundation I'll review as a part of the following posts but I can tell you that the color range isn't the best as Ivory should be the lightest shade and it's obvious that I'm very far from a pale complexion. It's a very nice, creamy foundation and although I couldn't hide my dark circles entirely (damn you night shifts!), Collistar Lifting Effect concealer has done a decent job. I'm using the last few ml's I've got left of this concealer and I'm on the market for something new. Any suggestions? I've fixated my base with the best drugstore compact powder - Revelique Soft Compact Powder in Beige (20). Do you notice the inconsistency in shade ranges of Revelique's powders? I've finished my base with a light dusting of the gorgeous MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Springsheen, which doubles as a blush and illuminator. The most gorgeous peachy blush by far.

Kada sam recenzirala stvarcice iz tada aktuelne MAC kupovine u postu MAC Kupovina | Recenzije i swatchevi, obecala sam vam da cu ih sve upotrijebiti za look-ove. Ipak mislim da je na taj nacin najlakse vidjeti kako pojedini komad kozmetike izgleda kada je prezentovan na licu. Fokus ovog posta je definitivno na MAC ljepotanima (i cinjenici koliko ruz moze da napravi razliku u izgledu) ali cete u akciji vidjeti i neke proizvode koje cu tek da recenziram. Za bazu sam koristila Revelique Natural Finish Make-up tecnu podlogu u nijansi Ivory (10). Ovo podlogu cu da recenziram u jednom od narednih postova no ono sto vam mogu vec sada reci jeste da - iako sam prilicno zadovoljna samom podlogom (jako je kremasta), nisam zadovoljna izborom nijansi. Ivory koju ja nosim je navodno najsvjetlija iz cijele linije a ocigledno je da nisam porculanskog tena. Iako nisam u potpunosti uspjela sakriti tamne kolutove oko ociju (proklete bile nocne smjene!), Collistar Lifting Effect korektor je ipak napravio pristojan posao. Trosim zadnje mililitre i zainteresovana sam za kupovinu novog korektora. Imate li prijedloge sta da isprobam? Fiksirala sam podlogu i korektor svojim najdrazim ali i najboljim puderom u kamenu iz drogerijskog ranga - Revelique Soft Compact puder u nijansi Beige (20). Primjecujete li odstupanje u nijansama Revelique pudera? Lice sam zavrsila njeznim MAC Sheertone Shimmer rumenilom u nijansi Springsheen. Ovo krasno rumenilo je kao rumenilo i hajlajter u jednom i nijansa je mozda i najljepsa od svih koralno/breskvastih koje posjedujem.



My eyes were the focus of the first look where I used a nude lipstick so we'll start with what I've used to define them. I've prepped my lids with the Avon Eyeshadow Base in Light Beige and then I packed MAC Frost Eyeshadow in Steamy (pretty shiny teal hue with golden shimmer) all over my lid. Than I popped some 'Tease' (matte taupe shade) from the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette in my crease. I've lined my upper lash line with Bourjois Liner Pinceau Liquid Eyeliner - my favorite eyeliner by far. I always say how I hate applying eyeliner and I'm not the most precise person in the world when it comes to it but when I see the results - I will admit that it's worth the effort. I've lined and filled the upper inner waterline (below the eyeliner) with the Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner in Black. I hate when skin shows under the eyeliner and this does the trick so that lashes appear fuller. I've coated my lashes with the new L'Oreal So Couture Volume Million Lashes mascara. I'm really lovin't it, I must say. It's very black and intense. My brows were filled with the unrivaled Revelique Eyebrow Pencil in Brown (20).

U centru prvog look-a su oci posto sam koristila nudasti ruz za usne tako da cemo poceti od okica cije sam kapke pripremila uz pomoc Avon baze za sjene u nijansi Light Beige. Preko cijelog kapka sam nanijela MAC Frost sjenu za oci u nijansi Steamy (jako lijepa tirkizna nijansa sa zlatnim shimmerom). Potom sam nanijela sjenu 'Tease' (mat taupe tj.sivkasto-smedja nijansa) iz Urban Decay Naked 2 palete sjena za oci u pregib oka. Oci sam uz gornju liniju trepavica obrubila sa Bourjois Liner Pinceau tecnim tusem - omiljenim od svih koje sam do sada isprobala. Uvijek govorim kako mrzim nanositi tus i zaista na tom polju nisam najpreciznija osoba na svijetu ali kada na kraju vidim rezultate, moram priznati da vrijedi ulozenog truda. Unutarnji waterline gornjih trepavica (unutarnja linija kapka) je popunjena sa Avon Supershock Gel ajlajnerom u nijansi Black. Mislim da je to lijep detalj jer ne volim kada se vidi cista koza ispod linije ajlajnera. Trepavice sam premazala slojem nove L'Oreal So Couture Volume Million Lashes maskare. Moram reci da me ova maskara dojmila. Intenzivne je crne boje i lijepo definise trepavice. Obrve sam popunila uz pomoc meni omiljene Revelique olovke za oci u nijansi Brown (20).



For the first look when eyes are in focus, I've used my MAC Lustre Lipstick in Viva Glam V. It's that universal nude that looks flattering on anyone and everyone. It doesn't look like much in the bullet but I love it for everyday's use or paired with a smokey-eye (especially navy smokey-eye!). Finally, the lipstick I already feel will be my star of the upcoming Autumn - MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Craving. It just has that beautiful autumnal feel about it and don't get me started on the texture? It's gorgeous! So creamy and pleasant to wear. You can tap it into lips with clean fingers and blot it for an everyday appropriate look but I wanted to go completely out and showcase the opulent splendor of this shade. Plummy lipstick at its best. I really hope you like these looks - I was worried as in how I'll make the Steamy eyeshadow wearable but it seems that the taupe-y counterpart played it down nicely. Let me know what you think in the comments section below and ladies - are we getting ready for Autumn, or what?

Posto su u prvom look-u oci bile u centru paznje, za njega sam koristila MAC Lustre ruz za usne u nijansi Viva Glam V. Radi se o krasnom, univerzalno lijepom nudastom ruzu koji pristaje svakome. Ne djeluje posebno interesantno niti privlacno u pakovanju ali ja ga volim koristiti za svakodnevnu, prirodnu sminku ali i smokey-eye (posebno onaj tamno plavih tonova). Napokon, ruz za koji vec sada znam da ce biti moja zvijezda jeseni - MAC Amplified Creme ruz za usne u nijansi Craving. Cim ga pogledate, mislim da jesen pada na pamet kao asocijacija. A tekstura? Ona je tek prekrasna! Tako kremasta i ugodna za nositi. Mozete ga cistim prsticima utapkati na usne i skinuti sloj maramicom za look prigodan tokom dana no ovaj put sam zeljela da ga pokazem u svoj njegovoj raskosi i nisam ga stedila. Ovo je primjer sljivastih ruzeva u svom najboljem izdanju. Zaista se nadam da vam se dopadaju ovi look-ovi koje sam kreirala i nosila za vas. Brinula sam se kako cu sjenu Steamy uciniti nosivom ali mislim da je taupe sjena iz Naked 2 palete na lijep nacin "smirila" neobicnu boju. Javite mi u komentarima svoje misljenje i dame - zar se vec opasno ne spremamo za jesen?
