Review*: NYX Lipliner pencil and Ultra pearl mania eyeshadow

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

Hello ladies, today I'll be reviewing some NYX products I received from Moja drogerija and once again this post will be in Slovene and in English.

Ko sem videla, da nam je Anja tokrat pripravila ponudbo NYX ličil, sem bila več kot navdušena. Čeprav imam v svoji kolekciji le par njihovih izdelkov, sem bila do sedaj z njimi zelo zadovoljna, in zanimalo me je, ali bo tudi tokrat tako. 
Svinčnik za ustnice od NYX-a že pravzaprav imam, zato izbira odtenka ni bila pretežka, seveda je zmagal nevtralno - roza odtenek, pri izbiri pigmenta pa sem imela več težav, a na koncu me je prepričal odtenek Mocha Pearl. 


I actually already own a lip pencil from NYX in the shade 843 Citrine and it's one of my most used ones. When I was deciding which shade to chose next, I of course went with a nude one, called 858 Nude pink. The hardest decision was which eyeshadow shade to get and it was the 20 Mocha Pearl that caught my eye.


As the name would suggest, this is a nude, pinky shade which, in my opinion, is the perfect everyday shade for me. It's actually just a little bit more bright and pinky than the natural colour of my lips.
The lip liner is very creamy and smooth, and compared to the Citrine shade is a little bit more sturdy, which I really like since the Citrine one can actually be a little bit too soft and  glide all over your face.
The NYX pencils are also very easy to sharpen, because I hate when the end of the pencils just breaks off the minute you sharpen it.
As you can see, it's completely matte and pigmented, but having said that, it doesn't feel drying on the lips. Of course it will get into your lines, if you're lips are chapped and you decide to wear it on its own, but I think that this is the same with all other lip pencils.
I think that the packaging is sleek and I like that you can easily see which shade you have at the very end of  the lip liner.
The lip liner will definitely prevent your lipsticks from bleeding and it'll make your lipsticks last longer. I also think it looks great on its own and maybe paired with a lip gloss, like I did in the picture below.


Svinčnik ima res pravo ime, saj gre za nude-roza odtenek, ki je po mojem mnenju popoln za vsakdanje ličenje. Presenetilo me je dejstvo, da je odtenek v resnici le malo svetlejši in bolj roza kot naravna barva mojih ustnic.
Je zelo kremast in gladek, v primerjavi z odtenkom Citrine pa je malce bolj trden, saj je slednji res zelo, zelo mehak, kar zna občasno otežiti sam nanos, saj ti lahko hitro pobegne iz ustnic na druge dele obraza.
NYX svinčniki se tudi zelo lepo šilijo, saj se za razliko od nekaterih, špica svinčnika ne odlomi takoj, ko končaš s šiljenjem.
Gre za popolnoma mat odtenek, ki je zelo pigmentiran, a hkrati dodatno ne izsuši ustnic. 
Poleg vsega tega, mi je všeč tudi sam izgled izdelka, ker je zelo tanek, prav tako pa prikaz barve na koncu svinčnika zelo olajša samo iskanje pravega odtenka.
NYX svinčnik za ustnice brez dvoma pomaga pri tem, da šminka ostane na svojem mestu, prav tako pa po mojem mnenju podaljša obstojnost šmink. 
Menim, da gre za odtenek, ki odlično izgleda tudi sam po sebi, ali pa mogoče v kombinaciji z kakšnim lip glosom. 



I have a confession to make; I don't really like using pigments or loose eyeshadows and I only own two, since I find them to be messy, but nevertheless I was quite excited to try this one because I fell in love with the shade. And I wasn't wrong, it's the perfect Sanja shade, bronzy - gold- sparkling  brown.
I was very surprised because I didn't expect it to be so pigmented and also that it'll be so easy to blend. In my opinion the best way to apply it, is with a flat brush, like the one you get with the Naked palette and then blend with a fluffy brush. When I applied it like this, I didn't have any fall out.
It's very small and compact, but I really don't like the fact that the opening on the top is so narrow, which doesn't allow you to fit your brush in there. Because of that, you have to dispose the product onto the lid or something, which makes it messy and not very convenient. It's also almost impossible to get just the right amount of the product out, so you'll probably be left with some remaining eyeshadow that is, again, challenging to get back into the tube. Maybe I should try with a smaller brush...
I love the fact that you can actually get two different shades out of it; if you apply it very lightly you get this golden sparkle and if you add another layer or two, you get this darker, bronzy -mocha shade. So in reality you only used one eyeshadow, but it looks like you put a lot of effort in doing your eye makeup.
It lasted all day on me without creasing or smudging, with  the help of the primer of course,  but I did notice that after some 6 hours, the colour started to fade a little bit.


Sama sicer nisem neka ljubiteljica pigmentov, ker so po mojem mnenju dokaj nerodni za uporabo in se lahko kar hitro znajdejo raztreseni po celi mizi ali sobi, ampak ko sem zagledala ta odtenek, sem vedela, da ga bom z veseljem preizkusila. 
Odtenek je res nekaj čisto zame, gre za  temno bronasto, zlat odtenek, ki je zelo pigmentiran, a se z lahkoto zabriše. Ugotovila sem, da če ga nanesem s sploščenim čopičem, kot je npr. tisti, ki se dobi zraven Naked palete, in nato zabrišem z večjim, ''fluffy'' čopičem, pod očmi ne opazim nobenih ostankov senčila.
Pakiranje je majhno in kompaktno, me je pa zelo zmotilo, da je odprtina na samem vrhu zelo ozka, tako da moraš pigment stresti v pokrovček ali na neko drugo površino, saj je čopič na žalost preširok. Mogoče bom morala senčilo nanašati z kakšnim tanjšim čopičem, kot je npr. čopič za nanos šmink ali Dual eye shadow brush od Elite. V nasprotnem primeru lahko vse skupaj postane dokaj neurejeno, prav tako pa ti ostane kar nekaj neporabljenega pigmenta, ki ga je zopet težko spraviti nazaj v lonček. 
Všeč mi je, da lahko s to senčko v bistvu ustvariš dva različna izgleda; če jo naneseš zelo skromno, dobiš nežno zlat odtenek, a če naneseš še dodatno plast ali dve, dobiš temnejši, bronasto-rjav odtenek. 
Na mojih vekah je s pomočjo podlage zdržal cel dan, brez da bi mi zašel v gubo, sem pa po kakšnih 6 urah opazila, da je barva malce zbledela, ampak me to pravzaprav niti ni zmotilo. 



All in all, I was very impressed with both products and I know I'll get a lot of use out of them. I'm actually thinking of buying the red lip liner pencil as well, because I saw some swatches from Slovenian bloggers and I really like it.
I also think that both product are great value for your money and you should definitely try them.

Oba izdelka sta me zelo navdušila in vem, da ju bom redno uporabljala. Med drugim tudi razmišljam o nakupu rdečega svinčnika za ustnice, saj gre, če sodim po slikah nekaterih slovenskih blogerk, za res lep odtenek. 
Oba izdelka sta dostopna po nizki ceni in menim, da ne boste obžalovale nakupa nobenega izmed njih.

  9. Oba izdelka sta mi všeč, jaz sem na koncu izbrala malce bolj živahne barve, namreč svinčnih v oranžni in pigment v modri barvi. :) Se pa strinjam z vsem, kar si napisala za pigment, tudi na meni po nekaj urah zbledi.
