Avon Review Part One: Mega Effects Eyeliner, Mattifying Foundation, Lipsticks

Monday, February 23, 2015

Živjo punce !
Tokrat bo govora o kozmetiki, ki vam je verjetno že poznana, ampak je sama še nisem dobro sprobala (razen šmink). Prijazna punca, ki se tudi ukvarja s prodajo Avon kozmetike mi je ponudila, da predlagam nekaj izdelkov ter jih tudi dobro sprobam. Dobila sem kar nekaj izdelkov, zato bom razdelila to objavo v dva dela. Nekateri so me navdušili, drugi pa so bili bolj povprečni.

Hello !
Today I'm going to talk about a brand which you can only get through representatives who are selling their products: Avon. You can become one and get some benefits through it. I've only tried their lipsticks before so it was nice to try other products. A lovely girl who sells Avon cosmetics contacted me and we decided on which products I could try. Some wowed me, others were average.



To so izdelki, ki vam jih danes predstavljam:
And these are the products I'm reviewing today:



Mega Effects Liquid Eyeliner (tekoči eyeliner) (3,9 €)



To črtalo me je takoj pritegnilo, ker je drugačno saj je konica daljša in ozka, tako, da bi naj zagotavljal lažji nanos. Običajno sem skeptična glede tekočih črtal v obliki "pisal", ampak je ta res črn in pusti takšno črto kot običajno tekoče črtalo ali tudi takšno v obliki gela. Nanos je lahek, vendar imam sama en problem (zaradi moje tehnike nanašanja): desno oko občrtam popolno, levo pa mi povzroča probleme na koncu oči, vendar se vseeno da narediti lepo črto. Tako kot pri vsakem novem črtalu se moreš malo navadit ampak se mi zdi, da je tole narejeno tudi za "začetnike" saj je kot nekakšno pisalo. Na očeh se dobro obdrži cel dan ter na meni črta ni popokala. Pa vendar ni vodoodporno, zato lahko zbledi, če se podrgneš po očeh ali kaj podobnega. Ta izdelek res priporočam saj sem ga od prejema skoz uporabljala.

This particular eyeliner got my attention because it's different: wider and thin, which would allow you an easier application. I'm usually sceptical about liquid eyeliners in form of a pen, however this one is really black and it's comparable to usual liquid or even gel eyeliner. Application is easy, however I strugle with my left eye due to my approach to applying it but other than that it can make a perfect line. As with every eyeliner you have to get a bit used to it, however I think this one would work for the beginners. It stays put on my eyes for a whole day and it doesn't crack or rub off. Because it is not waterproof it can kind of fade if you rub your eyes. I do recommend it.





Calming Effects Mattifying foundation (matirajoča podlaga) - Ivory (5,9 €)





Kar me najbolj pritegne je naslov: "matirajoča podlaga". Kot same veste imam bolj težave z mastno kožo in če se tudi same soočate s tem, veste kako težko je najti dober tekoči puder, ki bi kontroliral preveliko izločanje sebuma (oz. olja). Prav tako je za mojo polt težko najt primeren odtenek.
Tekstura tega pudra je srednje gosta, pa vendar je ob nanosu na koži nekako voden, kar pušča lahkoten nanos in ni občutka "maske". Ta puder ni popolnoma matirajoč, ampak v kombinaciji s kakšnim pudrom v kamnu - kar vedno uporabljam - se dobro obdrži in koža ne postane hitro sijoča ter v bistvu kar dobro zdrži na koži. Sama na obrazu nimam ogromno pravilnosti, zato mi običajno ustreza lahkoten tekoči puder ter nekaj nepravilnosti raje zakrijem s korektorji. Tako je tudi ta puder lažje do srednje prekriven. Lahko ga naneseš več slojev, ampak preveč ne izgleda najboljše, tako da priporočam lažji nanos. Pumpica je na pudru zelo priročna, čeprav morem uporabit 2-3 potiska, saj ne dozira veliko izdelka.
Puder mi je v bistvu kar všeč in sem ga od prejema vedno uporabljala čez dan. V primerjavi z odtenkom Revlon Colorstay (Buff), kateri je bolj rumenkast, je ta bolj oranžkasto nevtralen (definitivno pa ne roza), ampak se vseeno lepo zlije z mojo kožo.

I really liked the name "mattifying". As you know my skin can get quite oily and It's difficult to find a foundation which controls oils. Other than that it's also hard to find a nice color match. 
This product has a texture between light and thick, however it is a bit watery on the skin which doesn't leave you with a cakey finish. It is not completely mattifying, however in combination with a compressed powder it has a nice staying power and doesn't make your skin greasy quickly. I don't have many imperfections, so a light-weight foundation is perfect as I complement it with a concealer just to cover up any blemishes. So, this foundation has a light to medium coverage. You can apply more layers, however if you over-do it, it can look "cakey". I like the pump, eventough it spreads out little amount of product, so I need to use 2-3 pumps.
I do like this product and have been using it during the day. This particular shade has an orange - neutral color, however it still kind of matches my skin.



HOW IT LOOKS ON MY FACE

Avon foundation + eyeliner, Maybelline mascara and Catrice eyebrow gel - no concealer !

Color Trend Lolita Lasting Smile Lip Paint (šminka) - Lolita




Sprva ko sem videla kakšen je odtenek te šminke, me je kar presenetlo, ker ni odtenek, ki bi ga sama običajno izbrala ter nosila saj izgleda kot da bi bil bolj "metallic". Nanos je zelo enostaven, saj je šminka lepo kremasta in tudi oblika pripomore k lažjemu upravljanju. Odtenek pa na ustnicah izgleda veliko bolje. Tekstura ni najbolj prekrivna, pa vendar šminka ni prosojna ter je prijetna za nošenje.
Embalaža sicer ni najboljša, ker se mi zdi, da šminka noter mogoče malo miga.

At first I didn't like the shade of this lipstick, because I wouldn't choose it for myself at first due to a bit shiny/metallic finish. Application is very easy as it is a creamy lipstick. This shade looks much better on my lips than in the tube. It is not fully opaque, however still not shear and it feels nice and comfortable on the lips. Packaging isn't the best because it's a bit flimsy.


Ultra Color Indulgence Lip Color (rdečilo za ustnice) - In BloomLuxe Lipstick (rdečilo za ustnice) - Red Haute







Obe šminki sta zelo kremasti in pigmentirani. In Bloom je zelo lep "nude" odtenek, vendar bi jaz potrebovala pod šminko kakšno bazo ali malce pudra, saj imam veliko rdečkastega pigmenta na ustnicah. Red Haute je rdeč odtenek z bleščicami, ki se sicer na fotografiji ne opazijo tako zelo. Je tudi zelo kremasta, pa vendar se na ustnicah obdrži dobro tudi, če piješ.

Both lipsticks are creamy and nicely pigmented. In Bloom is a really nice "nude" shade, however because my lips are naturally quite red I'd use a primer or a bit od powder underneath. Red Haute is a nice red shde with some sparkles, which don't show up on the picture. It's creamy and doesn't wear off quickly.


Če katero mikajo Avonovi izdelki ter še ne pozna dekleta, ki jo ponuja oziroma prodaja, vam priporočam njo. Facebook. link.

Stay tuned for part 2.
