New Makeup Routine & Lipstick Love

6/09/2017


My makeup routine has changed a lot and I've managed to include an almost red (but nor actually a red) lipstick on days when I want to elevate my makeup - aaand there's a brown eye pencil I've been wearing almost every single day. There's tons of new things around here so I won't waste any time, let's get this overview started!

Primers have to be really good for me to include them in my everyday makeup bag yet this one has managed to impress me with its no-fuss approach. The only thing I dread is running out since I received it while in Vienna and there's no Astor makeup in Sarajevo (sigh). Astor Skin Match Protect Primer is lightweight and preps skin beautifully for makeup. It has an illuminating effect on skin. It also corrects small imperfections and helps conceal pores and fine lines. It has an SPF20 and so does L'Oreal Glam Beige Healthy Glow Foundation (20 Light) - perfect if you prefer skin to shine through your makeup, without masking its beauty. This foundation is very fluid and gives an almost bronzing effect whilst looking very natural. Manhattan Wake Up Concealer (True Ivory) has managed to climb onto the number one spot for being the best darn concealer I've tried so far! Creamy, thick and really of great coverage it has been my saviour.

Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour & Highlight are my absolute faves and I cannot imagine applying makeup without them anymore. So, so good and long lasting - they give my face definition and a gorgeous dewy glow. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade (Ash Brown) is the one for me when I want my brows to look really put together. Debby eyeChubby Eyeshadow in 7 is the ideal golden eyeryday shade and it's actually waterproof (review in the making!). KIKO Eye Pencil (Mat Ebony) is on the pedestal for being absolutely perfect - intense yet smudgeable and really long lasting. Maybelline Big Shot Washable Mascara - I have no idea how it differs from any other Colossal mascara, they're all really good to me and they agree well with my lashes. Black, voluminous without smudging under the heat - yes, please!

Finally, the true star of my makeup whenever I make the effort of applying it is the new Bourjois Rouge Laque liquid lipstick (Jolie brune 03). Although my love towards Lime Crime matte liquid lippies won't be going away any time soon, I must admit that it's refreshing to wear something so lightweight, comfortable and moisturizing on my lips. Since it has a shiny finish, the drawback is that it gets easily trasferred and the shine lasts for only an hour or two. On the other side, don't be fooled because these are incredibly pigmented and they stain lips like crazy (*swatches remain on skin for over two days!). When you apply it and it wears off after a while, quite a bold shade still remains on your lips which actually does not come off for 4-5h despite all the food and drinks. I squeeze even one or two hours of wear more when I line my lips with Essence Lipliner (Soft Berry). I really love this combo and how it works well with my complexion and features. Jolie Brune is described as a teddy brown but there's definitely a hint of red as well. Top marks for me - shine is back everyone!

  • Stvarčice kojima se šminkam na dnevnoj bazi su se dosta izmijenile i uspjela sam u često korištenje ubaciti crvenkasti (ali ne baš pravi crveni) karmin dok je i smeđa olovka za oči postala nešto što se sjetim nositi skoro pa svaki dan. Puno se toga promijenilo pa neću okolišati i odmah da počnemo sa pregledom kozmetičke rutine koje se pridržavam u ovim ljetnim danima.
  • Prajmeri moraju biti stvarno dobri da bi ih ubacila u neseser sa šminkom koju koristim svaki dan a ovaj prajmer me oduševio svojom jednostavnošću. Jedino čega se užasavam je dan kada ću ga potrošiti jer sam ga dobila tokom posjete Beču a Astor kozmetike nema u Sarajevu (šteta). Astor Skin Match Protect prajmer tj. baza je veoma lagan na koži i krasno je pripremi za nanošenje pudera i ostale kozmetike. Također koriguje mala nesavršenstva i ublaži izgled pora i borica. Sadrži SPF20 kao i L'Oreal Glam Beige Healthy Glow puder (20 Light) - ovaj tečni puder bi vam se dopao ako preferirate malo prirodnije prekrivanje koje neće zamaskirati kožu. Puder je dosta tečne formulacije i ima efekat kao da ste nanijeli i malo bronzera uz puder. Manhattan Wake Up korektor (True Ivory) mi je totalno iznenađenje - od svih korektora koje sam isprobala, on je ubjedljivo najbolji. Kremast, gust i odličnog prekrivanja priskočio mi je u pomoć nebrojeno puta.
  • Clinique Sculpting Chubby stikovi za konturisanje i hajlajt su mi, što bi se reklo - top. Više ne mogu zamisliti šminkanje bez njih. Kvalitetni i dugotrajni - baš lijepo licu daju dimenziju i prefinjeni sjaj. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow pomada (Ash Brown) je moj izbor kada želim da mi obrve budu uredne. Debby eyeChubby sjena za oči u stiku (7) je idealna zlatna sjena za svakodnevno nošenje koja je vodootporna (recenzija je u pripremi!). KIKO Eye Pencil (Mat Ebony) držim na tronu najbolje olovke za oči koju sam ikada imala. Maybelline Big Shot Washable Mascara - uopšte ne znam kako razlikovati silne varijante Colossal maskare. Meni sve odgovaraju trepavicama tako da sam i sa ovom verzijom zadovoljna. Crne voluminozne trepuške bez razmazivanja? Da, molim!
  • Napokon, dolazimo do zvijezde ovog posta i mog kozmetičkog nesesera - u pitanju je novi Bourjois Rouge Laque tečni karmin (Jolie brune 03). Iako moja ljubav spram mat tečnih Lime Crime karmina ne jenjava, moram priznati da je osvježavajuće nositi na usnama karmin čiju teksturu uopšte ne osjećam, koji ne isušuje usne i čak je hidratantan. Pošto je sjajne završnice, nedostaci su što se lako prenosi na šolje, čaše i sl. a sjaj relativno brzo iščezne sa usana (nakon cca 1-2 sata). Ali nemojte da pomislite kako nije kvalitetan jer je odlično pigmentiran i "stain" se zadržava veoma dugo na koži (*swatchevi na ruci su i pored kupanja ostali preko dva dana!). Ukratko, nakon par sati nošenja sjaj nestane ali pigment na usnama ostaje još 4-5 sati (i pored jela i pića). Ja uspijem izvući još sat do dva kada ispod Bourjois karmina usne obrubim svojom Essence olovkom za usne (Soft Berry). Super mi je ova kombinacija, mislim da se slaže uz moj ten. Jolie Brune nijansa je opisana kao medasto smeđa ali u njoj definitivno ima i primjesa crvene. Od mene i ovaj Bourjois karmin dobija pohvale - a sjaj se vratio na beauty scenu!

  1. Mislim da mi je u zvotu neophodno malo ovakve rutine u sminkanju... Da znam da se zaustavim. Realtivno kasno sam se upustila u sve te make up coskove pa mi je valjda sve jos uvek zanimljivo, ali priznajm sve cesce uhvatim sebe kako govorim 'to je dovoljno, to je dovoljno, stani... iii, preterala si.' e eto bas zato mi je ovakav post i vise nego od koristi. :)

    1. Razumijem taj zanos i baš mi je drago pročitati da eksperimentišeš sa šminkom - pa makar nekada bilo i pretjerivanja, sve smo to radile :)
      Drago mi je i ako je ovaj post bio od koristi, ja sam sklona nešto blažem šminkanju pa ako te to bude zanimalo uvijek si dobrodošla u mom internet kutku ❤
