The Lady Is A Vamp


Thank you Spice Girls for providing the inspiration for the title of this post – The Lady Is A Vamp is a post dedicated to two single pieces of make-up that make me feel absolutely like a femme fatale. The first makeupy item is something I purchased last year as a part of a LE set. Sleek The Berry Collection that was featured last year held three bits in similar yet different tones but the berry vibe was obvious. The best part of that holiday make-up set for me was definitely the Sleek True Match Lipstick in Cranberry (748). This one has a matte formula which usually scares me off as I constantly battle dry and chapped lips but it's so worth the extra effort. It's of an intense reddish-brown hue and it's crazy pigmented acting mostly like a stain as it remains on my lips through meals and drinks – it's quite an impressive little lipstick! And I do have to address its miniscule dimensions – Sleek lipsticks are teensy but I don't mind as that means they're purse-friendly. Anyways, the deal with this one is that it's only this year that I gathered courage to frequently wear it. I'm si glad that I finally feel comfortable wearing it as it's stunning!

Veliko hvala Spajsicama na inspiraciji za naziv posta – Ova dama je vamp je post posvecen samo dva komada sminke koja u zajednickoj kombinaciji zaista transformisu izgled od obicnog do femme fatale. Prvi proizvod sam kupila prosle godine u sklopu LE (limited edition) seta. Rijec je o praznicnoj Sleek The Berry kolekciji koja je obuhvatala tri proizvoda slicnih no ipak razlicitih nijansi. Ipak, ne moze se poreci da je zajednicka tematika bila prisutna u vidu tamnijih tonova bobicastog voca. Meni najdrazi dio je bez sumnje Sleek True Match ruz za usne u nijansi Cranberry (748). Ovaj ruz je mat formulacije koja me obicno plasi posto konstantno vodim borbu sa suhim i ispucalim usnama no moram priznati da je vrijedan dodatnog truda oko njege usana. Intenzivne je crvenkasto-smedje boje koja je nevjerovatno pigmentirana te se ruz ponasa kao stain na usnama, zadrzavajuci se u punom intenzitetu satima i nakon par pica te eventualno lakseg jela – zbog toga me bas impresionirao! I osjecam potrebu da spomenem minijaturne dimenzije ovog ruza koji me na pocetku iznenadio i imala sam pomijesana osjecanja u vezi toga ali me na kraju osvojila prakticnost – stati ce i u najmanju torbicu. U svakom slucaju zelim reci da prosle godine i nisam bila dovoljno hrabra da ga posteno pronosam na usnama no ove godine se to promijenilo – na moju radost jer je prekrasan.

The second part of my vampy beauty wardrobe is the everlasting nail polish classic (for me at least) – the fab Essie Luxedo. There's just something about this blackened plum that has such appeal. I imagine it as the nail polish of the nineties, paired with a dark pout such as pictured, messy hair and black tank tops. I don't own one, I was just sayin’ *hiedsthetopbehindherback. Now seriously, this beaut has that part goth/part elegant vibe. It's almost black and, in fact, it looks black on first sight but as soon as light hits it you get the most flattering dark plum out there. But what really makes it special is that super, mega, giga shine. No top coat, even Seche Vite wouldn't do it justice – it's perfect in every possible way. Wear is amazing and it looks amazing paired with either a snug black sweater or a crisp white shirt for contrast (Mia Wallace style). If you'll excuse me, I'll go sip some red wine and put some Spice Girls just for old times's sake..

Drugi proizvod koji garantuje femme fatale transformaciju je vjeciti klasik medju lakovima za nokte (barem za moj pojam) – fantasticni Essie Luxedo. Jednostavno postoji nesto u vezi ovog laka sto je jako privlacno. Nijansa skoro crne sljive me neodoljivo podsjeca na popularnu kulturu devedesetih godina i zamisljam ga na noktima neke opasne macke tog perioda i ukombinovanog sa bed head frizurom, tamnim usnama i crnim majicama na bretele (hocemo li se prisjetiti choker ogrlica ili je i vama to bolno sjecanje?). Ovaj ljepotan je poseban bas zato sto ga dozivljavam kao podvojenu licnost – djelimicno je goth a djelimicno visoka elegancija. Skoro je pa crn a tako ce djelovati na prvi pogled sve dok svjetlost ne otkrije fantasticne sljivasto/ljubicaste podtonove. Ipak, ono sto ga zaista cini posebnim je super, giga, mega sjajni finis. Nije vam uz njega potreban nadlak, cak mislim da bi i slavni Seche Vite podbacio u poredjenju sa njim – za mene je ovaj lak savrsen u svakom smislu. Trajnost je izvrsna i djeluje posebno sik u kombinaciji sa crnom dolcevitom ili cisto bijelom kosuljom (à la Mia Wallace). A sada vas molim da me ispricate, idem pijuckati casu crnog vina i prodrmati ove stare kosti uz Spajsice – u ime dobrih, starih vremena.
