Day To Night Lipstick Transition

5/22/2015



I remember the time when I wouldn't even look at a lipstick - well, let me tell you that those times are long gone! You can call me 'lipstick girl' all you want because I feel like a converted woman - not that I'd ever skip on lip balms, tints, stains, glosses etc. - it's just that I'm really happy with what I'm wearing these days. It's great to find a great lipstick duo which helps transition even the simplest of looks from day to night. Here I'm wearing Clarins Instant Concealer under my eyes to hide dark under-eye circles and Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder all over my face (it's fab!). I also have a dusting of MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Springsheen on my cheeks (it's one of my favorite blushes). On my eyes I'm wearing a touch of the Catrice Prime and Fine Eyeshadow Base which is really good, slick of Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Paint in Rich Russet (I always come back to it because it's gorgeous!) and two coats of my fave L'Oreal So Couture  Volume Million Lashes Mascara. Brows are lightly filled with my trusty Revelique Eyebrow Pencil in Ochre. That's the backbone of this make-up look and I've only switched between lipsticks to make that day/night transition. You can note that I'm not wearing any foundation and that's because I'm beyond happy with my current skincare routine so my skin is looking pretty good, if I may say so myself. No blackheads, no blemishes, extra oiliness or dry patches - an updated skincare routine is coming your way soon! But let's get back to these two Catrice lipsticks I've been adoring lately.

Sjecam se vremena kada nisam zeljela uopste obratiti paznju na ruzeve za usne - sa sigurnoscu mogu reci kako su ta vremena daleko iza mene! Ruzevi su mi postali jako dragi iako ne znaci da se odricem balzama, sjajeva, stain-ova i ostalih mazalica za usne (sve ih volim na svoj nacin). Poenta je u tome sto ovo dobro raspolozenje na temu ruzeva mogu zahvaliti odlicnom dvojcu cijim sam koristenjem izuzetno zadovoljna. Sjajno je pronaci ruzeve koji za cas posla transformisu i najjednostavniji make-up up look od onog prigodnog za svaki dan u look dostojan nocnog izlaska. Na fotografijama nosim Clarins Instant Concealer korektor  ispod ociju kako bih prekrila tamne podocnjake a Bourjois Healthy Balance kompaktni puder u kamenu sam nanijela u tankom sloju preko cijelog lica (njim sam jako, jako zadovoljna). Na jagodice sam nanijela meni jedno od najdrazih rumenila, MAC Sheertone Shimmer rumenilo u nijansi Springsheen. Kapke sam pripremila Catrice Prime and Fine bazom za sjenu za oci kojom sam jako zadovoljna. Potom sam nanijela njezni sloj Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Paint sjene u nijansi Rich Russet (uvijek se vracam ovoj kremastoj sjeni, prekrasna je) a na trepavicama nosim dva sloja licnog favorita, L'Oreal So Couture  Volume Million Lashes maskaru. Obrve su blago popunjene sa Revelique olovkom za obrve u nijansi Ochre. To bi otprilike bila osnova ovog make-upa a prijelaz iz dnevnog u nocni look sam napravila uz pomoc odabranih Catrice ruzeva za usne. Mozda cete primjetiti da nisam navela tecnu podlogu a to je iz razloga sto je uopste ne nosim. Naime, jako sam zadovoljna trenutacnom rutinom njege koze koju sam sklopila i koza mi je prilicno zahvalna na tome - nema mitesera, bubuljica, viska sebuma niti perutavih dijelova. Uskoro mozete ocekivati apdejtovani post o njezi koze na blogu! No, za sada, hajde da se vratimo na temu ruzeva.



Lipstick that has overtaken my beauty bag completely - it has even kicked out my Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine, which is unheard of! - is this gorgeous Catrice Luminous Lipstick in Wood Rose Propose? 120 (3,5g for 3,99€). Packaging is sturdy, not too clunky, silver-colored and the snap is reliable. It is prone to scratches, though. Now, this particular shade is a part of the new collection for summer/spring '15 and it's absolute perfection. This is the epitome of MLBB (my lips but better) category - it belongs in the nude category but it's juicy and plump, instead of dulling your complexion. There are just the right amounts of beige, brown, pink, dusty rose in the mix. I'd throw in a mention of 'fig' in there because it reminds me of many beautiful lipstick shades of that vein. Non-scented. Texture is a cross between a lippie and a balm - it's of a non-opaque, shiny and nourishing texture. It makes me think of a more browny version of MAC's Pure Zen or of the amazing Clinique Chubby Sticks. It's nourishing, non-oily but creamy and comfortable to wear (contains hyaluronic acid) - a perfect daytime lippie which goes literally with everything. It's my top pick for daytime make-up. The one which transforms a gentle face base into a vampy number is the ferocious Catrice Ultimate Colour Lipstick in Red My Lips 310 (3,8g for 3,99€). Normal sized-bullet, elegant-looking in a shiny black version thus prone to fingerprints. No noticeable scent. This is what I call a red lipstick, my friends! It's of a classic, old-Hollywood red kinda vibe and its texture is divine. Fabulous pigment - you can rock it as a stain or full-on from the bullet, like I have done. It applied perfectly even and its smooth, creamy and relatively lasting texture is something dreams are made of. It's not of a matte finish, it has a subtle sheen to it which goes away during wear. Longevity is approx 2-3h due to its creaminess but I don't mind reapplying it - you could blot it and/or powder it to prolonge its longevity. After the shine goes away, you're left with a gorgeous tint. It simply brightens up my complexion and I must say that it's one of the best red lipsticks I found so far. This is a lipstick which makes a night-out look and I love it!

Ruz koji je preoteo mjesto svakoj drugoj mazalici za usne u neseseru za dnevni make-up je Catrice Luminous ruz za usne u nijansi Wood Rose Propose? 120 (3,5g kosta cca 8KM). Nevjerovatno je da je uspio zamjeniti cak moj voljenog Korres buttera za usne nijanse Jasmine, sto se do sada nije desavalo! Pakovanje je pouzdano, nije glomazno, obojeno je u srebrenu boju i cvrsto se zatvara. Doduse, sklono je ogrebotinama. Nijansa u koju sam se zaljubila je dio nove kolekcije za proljece/ljeto '15 i moram reci da je pun pogodak. Utjelovljenje je kategorije ruzeva koji su prirodne boje usana ali ih cine ljepsim na jedan prirodan nacin. Spada u nudastu kategoriju iako je socan i osvijetli ten umjesto da lice 'ispere' (cemu su ruzevi nude kategorije inace skloni). Unutar ove nijanse se nalazi idealan omjer bez/beige, smedjih, ruzicastih i prljavo ruzicastih tonova. Konacna boja me podsjeca na dosta ruzeva koji u nazivu imaju rijec 'fig'/'smokva' - ako ih proguglate, znajte da im je ovaj ruz jako slican. Nije znacajno parfimiran. Tekstura mu je kombinacija ruza i balzama za usne - polutransparentan je, sjajan i hranljiv. Podsjeca me na MAC Pure Zen ruz (samo uz vise smedjih primjesa) ili na Clinique Chubby Stick za usne. Hranljive je a nemasne formulacije i jako ugodan za nositi (sadrzi hijaluronsku kiselinu) - ukratko, idealan ruz za svaki dan i u tu svrhu moj odabir broj jedan. Ruz koji ce pak ovaj make-up transformirati u vamp ediciju je neustrasivi Catrice Ultimate Colour ruz za usne u nijansi Red My Lips 310 (3,8g kosta cca 8KM). Pakovanje je kao i kod prethodnika kompaktno, djeluje elegantno posto je crne boje i visokog sjaja no upravo zbog toga je pakovanje magnet za otiske prstiju. Nije znacajno parfmirane formulacije. Eh, ovaj ruz je sve ono sto bih zeljela od jednog crvenog klasika! Radi se o bas klasicnoj crvenoj nijansi kakvu vezemo za eru starog Hollywood-a! Nijansa ali i tekstura ovog ruza su apsolutno savrsenstvo. Iznimno je pigmentiran - mozete ga koristiti kao stain ako ga utapkate u usne prstima ili ga kao ja mozete nanijeti direktno iz pakovanja za intenzivan efekat. Ravnomjerno se nanosi i zagladjujuce je, kremaste teksture koja je pristojne trajnosti za jednu kremastu formulaciju. Stvarno je san snova. Nije mat finisa vec ima blagi sjaj koji nestaje nakon recimo pola sata nosenja. Trajnost iznosi u prosjeku 2-3h no nije mi naporno ponovo ga nanositi - ukoliko zelite da traje duze vremena, mozete napraviti par tura matiranja maramicom, nanosenja i setovanja puderom u prahu. Kada sjaj nestane, ostati ce lijep crveni tint. Ova boja mi tako lijepo osvjezi ten i zaista je ovo jedan od najljepsih crvendaca koje sam isprobala. Itekako cini look dostojnim nocnih izlazaka i slobodno me svrstajte u fan klub!
