Tinted lip stuff / Balsamuri colorate pt buze


Desi am multe rujuri preferate in nuante tari si inca si mai multe in wishlist, balsamurile colorate raman febletea mea de multi, multi ani. Printre primele folosite, cand eram inca in generala, erau cele cu capsuni de la Nivea, si apoi Avon sau Oriflame si multe altele, care au ajuns uitate prin banca la scoala sau au cazut din buzunare.

Colectia s-a schimbat intre timp, si, pe langa balsamurile Baby Lips, pe care le-am aratat intr-un post mai din urma, mai am cateva preferate.

Although I love lipsticks, i love lots of vibrant colours or sheer ones, and the wishlist is forever growing, my nostalgic thoughts go back to when i was still a kid who wasn’t allowed to wear make-up, but that dabbled in the magic of tinted lipbalms. I think my first ones were the Nivea strawberry and cherry, and then Avon or Oriflame and other brands that i can’t remember, and these were all lost or left at school, and they made way for new ones. 


Tanjeam dupa unturile de buze Korres de ceva vreme, in Romania nu le-am gasit in magazine, doar online, si acolo pretul era putin piperat. In vara insa, am dat peste ele in Grecia, intr-o farmacie, brandul e unul grecesc pana la urma, la fel ca Apivita, si am pus mana pe 3 dintre ele, desi as mai fi luat vreo 5. Pretul, daca imi aduc bine aminte, a fost in jur de 5 euro pt unul.  Mango, Pomegranate si Wild Rose. Imi plac pentru ca sunt foarte hidratante, si rezistente, si culorile sunt foarte vibrante pentru un balsam atat de hidratant si usor.

I’ve been wanting these lip butter for so long, and in my country you can only get them online, but they were a bit pricey, so i mentally put them aside for a while. When i was in Greece this summer i stumbled upon them in a local pharmacy. Korres, after all, like Apivita, is a greek brand. I got Pomegranate, Wild Rose and Mango, but i would’ve bought them all. I like how hydrating they are, how nice they smell, how pretty they make your lips, they’ve got a natural, flushed, just kissed, just ate exotic fruit on the beach, sort of finish. 


Sleek Pout Polish

De la Sleek am tot trei nuante, de la stanga la dreapta: Monte Carlo, Scandal, Peach Perfection. Toate miros putin vanilat, dar la consistenta difera. Scandal e cel mai pigmentat, e si mai greu cumva, e ca un ruj, eu il folosesc si ca fard de obraz uneori, dar rezista cel mai mult, nu e la fel de hidratant ca celelalte doua. Monte Carlo si Peach Perfection sunt mai light, ca niste gloss-uri. In poza, swatchul din dreptul lui Monte Carlo e de fapt de la Peach Perfection si invers, m-am incurcat eu in degetele. Peach Perfection l-am purtat cel mai putin, nu prea merge cu tenul meu si arata laptos cumva.

Sleek pout polishes are also great. They all smell really sweet, vanilla like, and they are really hydrating. Scandal is the most pigmented one, it is less hydrating and sheery for that matter, but it’s gorgeous. I also put a bit on my cheeks, whenever i’m feeling pale and can’t be bothered to carry a brush in my bag. You just slap it on the cheeks, slap it on the lips and you’re good to go. Peach perfection is the least used of the trio, mainly because it looks a bit milky on me. Monte Carlo is just a nice, nourishing, pinky peony color, that gives a glossy finish. In the picture, the Monte Carlo swatch got mixed up with the Peach swatch. I seem to have lost track of my fingers on the way.

Randomness: The body shop, CK, Yves Rocher

Born Lippy e poate balsamul de buze preferat de vreo 5 ani. Am mai multe nuante, mai multe esitii speciale, e un balsam pe care o sa-l recumar mereu. Cel de capsuni ramane in top, miroase delicios si da un tint usor rosiatic, dar foarte natural.

Born Lippy, TBS, is my absolute favourite lipbalm. I’ve had many over the years, many different scents, and i will always repurchase. I like how good they smell, how nice they make your lips look, with just a hint of color, but the main point is, i think, that you go around thinking you have strawberries on your lips, and darn, that makes you feel good. 

Balsamul de la CK, nuanta Mica, e ca un ruj intr-un borcanel, e mai pigmentat, e hidratant, se intinde un pic mai greu si pe post de balsam pe care-l scoti dn geanta si te dai cu el in statia de autobuz nu merge, pentru ca s-ar putea sa te manjesti.

CK Ultimate Edge – Mica – is more pigmented, is not as hydrating as others, it’s basically a lipstick in a jar, but i like the colour, and it’s pretty decent lasting. 

Yria – Yves Rocher, e un balsam rozaliu, cu un miros dulce, care hidrateaza foarte bine si arata ca un gloss rozaliu simplu pe buze.

Yria – Yves Rocher is a pinky, sparkly, sizzly lipbalm, with a very sweet scent and a nourishing power.
