Fardurile de obraz preferate pentru toamna / My favourite autumn blushes

sunlit-autumn-leaves-4187

 

 

A venit, a venit toooaamna…ma rog, era iarna in cantecul original, daca stiti la ce ma refer. Desi, dac-ar fi dupa mine, s-ar canta deja colinde in octombrie.

Toamna tind sa folosesc fonduri de ten cu acoperire mai mare, nu ca as avea reale probleme cu pielea, dar lipsa vitaminei D si a soarelui imi face o piele foarte terna. Si acopar mai mult, doar ca uniformizez mai mult, de fapt.

Dar, da, vorbeam despre farduri de obraz, si eu incep cu fondul de ten. Ideea e ca totul e cu un grad mai mare de acoperire toamna, si fondul de ten, si cu blushul am obiceiul de a exagera putin, pentru a distruge paloarea tenului nevazut de soare.

Toamna ma intind mai mult spre blushuri mai inchise la culoare si mai pigmentate, desi nu e neaparat o regula, imi plac si nuantele piersicii mai puternice, portocaliul de exemplu, pentru ca da bine cu frunzele de aceleasi culori.

E si un anotimp romantic, asa ca sa vina la rampa si rozurile smoked, “afumate”, daca vreti sa-i zicem in romana, ca sunca sarata si pusa in afumatoare. Si acum ca v-am facut foame, sa-i dam bice.

Autumn is here and it’s time to break the more pigmented and more high-coverage stuff. Starting with foundation, more coverage is always better for me in the autumn, especially since I haven’t seen any sun in almost a week. And my skin tends to like vitamin D and turn in to a zombie if it lacks it. 

So in the autumn I tend to go for the more pigmented blushes I have, the darker colours, but that’s not necessarily a rule, I also love the strong peaches, the corals,  the oranges.

It is also a highly romantic, melancholic season, and I like the smoked rose shades. Unfortunately, I don’t have so many of those, so I need to rectify that,

Aparent am o mare slabiciune pentru blushuri cremoase. Pentru ca sunt mai diafane cumva, par mai naturale, nu rezista la fel de mult ca unele farduri pudra, dar sunt printre preferatele mele.

As you can see, I really love cream blushes. They’re more natural, it’s harder to go overboard with them, they’re not all so resistant, but I love them.

Si aici le vedeti in toata splendoarea lor coloristica.

Cel de la Miss Rose l-am luat din Ungaria la un pret de nimic si e al naibii de pigmentat. Trebuie sa am foarte mare grija cu el.

Cel de la Miss Sporty il am de atata timp ca nici nu mai gasiti genul asta de blush in magazine, in gama lor. Nu-mi dau seama de ce l-am ignorat atata vreme, e foarte la locul lui, e foarte natural, rezista foarte mult si il folosesc aproape zilnic in ultima vreme. Voi fi foarte trista cand se va termina.

Blushul de la Revlon, Coral Reef, mi-a bantuit wishlist-urile multa vreme, dar l-am luat pana la urma. Nu e  pe cat de pigmentat speram eu sa fie, dar merge aplicat ]n mai multe straturi. Imi place culoarea la nebunie.

Cel de la Miss &Mrs l-am luat din Hateg, de la magazinul celor de la 1001 cosmetice, si am dat mai putin de 10 lei pe el. E foarte pigmentat si asta, la fel ca si fratele lui unguresc.

Fardul de obraz de la Elizabeth Arden e o achizitie mai recenta, si are culoarea unor prune mai domoale. mi-e doar teama sa nu se duca cam repede, e destul de pigmentat incat sa nu folosesc mult produs la o aplicare, dar pare destul de mic recipientul.

And here they are in all their splendor. 

I got the Miss Rose one from Hungary, for the price of I dunno …, a bread. Measly price, something like that. And it’s really damn pigmented. Must take care when applying this. 

The Miss Sporty one was ignored for a lot of time, so much time in fact, that I don’t even think they make it anymore. And it’s a shame i did that because I rediscovered it lately and it’s freaking gorgeous. It’s a natural, salmony brown like color, a nude of the cheeks, elegant, and it stays on for quite a while, considering it’s a cream one. I shall cry when it’s done. 

Coral Reef, the Revlon one, was on my wishlist for quite a while. I expected it to be a bit more pigmented, but it holds up and I mean, just look at that color. 

Miss&Mrs, the little flower stamp one was also really cheap. And it’s really pigmented, and it lasts, and it’s a strong pink, gorgeous color. 

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Blush in Plum was a more recent addition and I adore it. It’s a really smoky plumy, rich, elegant and sobre, yet flattering color. I just fear that I will run out of it quickly, there’s not a lot product in the little pot.

Blush-urile pudra pe care le-am ales sunt unul de la Avon si unul de la Elf.

Cel de la Avon il am de mult muuult timp, variatiuni pe tema lui se mai gasesc inca in cataloage vara, pentru ca e un fel de bronzer, desi eu tot timpul l-am folosit doar in lunile friguroase, mi se pare mie personal ca e genul de blush care te face sa arati natural, de parca ai alergat putin dupa autobuz si te-ai imbujorat, sau ti s-a facut un compliment, si ai rosit putin, destul cat sa ai o culoare sanatoasa in obraji.

Cel de la Elf a fost si el ignorat o vreme, dar l-am redescoperit recent si mi-am spus ca-l pastrez pentru zilele mohorate de toamna. E un blush bun, din gama essentials de la ei, nu rezista foarte mult dar pentru pretul pe care-l are e un produs de calitate. Si, de asemenea, e foarte prafos, si poti foarte usor sa te trezesti cu o fata de clovn. Dar culoarea merita toata bataia asta de cap.

 The only two powder blushes I have for you today are from Avon and Elf. 

The Avon one is also pretty old and wise. You can still find it, but it has a different packaging. Also, interestingly enough, it’s actually a bronzer. I use it as a blush and always in the colder season, for some reason. To me it’s that perfect flushed color, like you just ran after the bus and got a bit flustered, or blushed when you were complimented on something, enough to show a lovely, healthy, cheek color. 

The Elf one, in Flushed, was also ignored a lot. It’s a really pretty smoky rose, with a bit of glitter, the only problem I have with it is that it’s really powdery and you can easily get a clown face with it, and it does not last as much as others. But the color is really pretty and worth the trouble and it’s a decently priced, decent product.
