Favourites #4

Incep preferatele cu no 1 pe lista, si anume top coat-ul de la Farmec. L-am vazut prima data la iguanitza si am dat fuga la magazin sa-l iau. E ieftin, in jur de 8,9 lei si face de zece ori pe atat. Aplic doua straturi de oja de obicei si un strat de top coat si am ajuns sa imi sterg unghiile doar de plictiseala, dupa vreo doua saptamani, caci de dus nu se duce nimic de pe ele, nu se crapa, se pastreaza lucioase si ingrjite. Ma rog, pe cat de ingrijite pot sa arate unghiile mele scurte si rontaite pe margini. Dar top coat-ul asta e cel mai bun pe care l-am folosit, si rezista si la atacurile mele dintate.

Starting the countdown with Farmec topcoat, a really cheap product that os worth twenty times the sum it costs. It’s the best I’ve used so far, I usually apply two layers over the nailpolish and two weeks later it still looks good. As good as my chewed nails can look, but trust me, it really makes a super huge improvement. 

Urmeaza the Balm Mary Lou- manizer, pe care mi l-am dorit de mult timp si l-am si luat intr-un final. E superb,e divin, e o raza din cer. Destule metafore pentru moment. Din cand in cand il aplic si pe pometi, dar cel mai des, aproape zilnic, il folosesc in coltul interior al ochiului. Nici un alt fard sau highlighter nu face ce face Mary Lou. Luminozitate, prospetime, un je ne sais quoi. Asta face cu ochii mei obositi.

Next off, the Mary Lou-manizer , the Balm illuminator, a product I’ve swooned over for a while and I finally got it. It’s a metaphor, this thing is, it makes you want to write poems for your skin, for the divine light it brings to your inner corner of the eyes, the fine, radiant cheekbones… It’s a je ne sais quoi and it’s worked wonders on my tires eyes. 

Acum ca s-a instalat si vremea rece, am trecut pe creme mai groase si uleiuri noaptea, inainte de culcare. Le alternez, inca nu m-am decis asupra unuia, dar doua din produsele folosite in ultima vreme se afla aici. Primul e serul Radiance, luat de pe breslo, de care am mai scris aici. E un ser uleios, cu multe ingrediente naturale, care simt ca imi hidrateaza pielea si o lasa neteda si radianta pana dimineata.

With the setting in of autumn I’ve gone back to some of my oils and serums for night care. I haven’t stuck to one specifically, but I have used the Radiance serum that i bought from breslo.ro. More details here . It’s an oily serum, packed with natural ingredients, hydrating and in the morning my skin looks really smooth and fresh. 

Ca sa il fac sa intre mai repede in piele si sa nu mi se mai lipeasca firele de par de obraji, dupa aplicare, masez pielea cu cele doua ustensile pe care le vedeti mai jos, doua rollere din jad. Probabil ca ati citit si voi despre puterile miraculoase ale masajului cu jad: antirid, antiacnee, etc, etc. Eu nu le folosesc pe cat de des as vrea, dar simt ca fac ceva bine pentru pielea mea atunci cand o fac. Sunt reci si racoritoare la inceput cand masez, se incalzesc intre timp, si e o procedura relazanta. Cel mare il folosesc pe obraji, frunte, barbie, iar cel mic in jurul ochilor, pe langa nas si pe buze.

To make the serum sink in faster and to evade those temporarily sticky cheeks that my locks of hair annoyingly stick to, I use these two jade rollers for massaging it in. You’re probably not new to these jade rollers, you might know they have miraculous, or so it’s said, effects on the skin, anti-wrinkle, anti acne, circulation activating. They are cold and refreshing at the first  and warm up as you use them. It’s quite a relaxing thing. I use the big one on my cheeks, forehead and chin and the small one under the eyes, on the lips and around the nose.

Cand nu am chef de ulei, aplic crema de la Charme, Apicalend, cu galbenele, tataneasa si propolis, pe care o puteti vedea aici. E o crema pentru ten iritat cu tendinat de inflamare, piele uscata, aspra, protectie la vant. Asta pe langa alte beneficii pe care le are pentru diverse afectiuni. E putin greoaie si grasa cand o aplic, dar in 10 minute a intrat aproape complet in piele. Daca mai trec mana pe fata se simte putin ca nu a intrat toata in piele si mai e un strat la suprafata, dar nu ma deranjeaza. E o crema foarte buna iar  dimineata am un ten luminos, curat si hidratat.

When I’m not in the mood for oils and serums in the evening, I use the Charme cream with propolis, calendula and blackwort. It’s recommended for a sensitive, irritated skin, dry, rough skin and many more skin issues. It is a bit heavy but in 10 minutes it sinks almost completely. If I run my hand on my skin it is clear that there is still a layer that has not gone in, but it’s not an issues, because hey, I am about to sleep in 10 minutes anyways and in the morning I wake up with a smooth, clean, not greasy at all, hydrated skin.

Pensula pentru aplicat corectorul de la Eco Tools a fost printre preferate in ultima vreme, mai ales in combinatie cu corectorul lichid din imagine, de la Elf. Pensula e foarte moale si nu imi irita pielea deloc, mai ales ca o folosesc si in zona ochilor. E mica si agila 🙂 si ajunge oriunde.

This concealer brush from Eco Tools was one of my favorite brushes lately, especially when used to apply the Elf concealer in the pics. It’s a soft brush, it’s light, and it’s perfect for buffing the under eye area. It’s small and agile 😛 and it reaches any little corner.

Corectorul de la Elf e unul mai lichid decat cele pe care le folosesc eu de obicei, are o acoperire medie, mai ales pe cearcane imi place sa-l folosesc deoarece arata foarte natural. Nu le acopera complet, dar confera o luminozitate pe care nu am observat-o la corectoare mai solide. Pe toata fata are un aspect natural si desi nu cred ca ar fi in stare sa acopere zone foarte iritate si afectate (gen acnee), uniformizeaza si lumineaza tenul in zilele lui bune si ascunde imperfectiuni nu foarte pronuntate. De incercat, va recomand! L-am mai mentionat si aici.

This Elf concealer is more liquidy than the ones I normally  use, it has a medium coverage, and I like to use it under eyes most of all because it gives a really nice, natural look. It doesn’t completely cover the dark circles, but it gives an illuminating effect. It has a natural coverage and though I think it wouldn’t cover up especially irritated areas and really big pimples, it does iluminate  skin. A must try, I recommend  it. I also mentioned it here

Parfumul de la DP e un Dolce & Gabbana D&G, o replica pe care o folosesc mai mult spre toamna, iarna pentru ca are un miros foarte puternic si ducle pe care vara nu l-as suporta. Originalul nu stiu cum e, am primit replica aceasta care tine pana la 12 ore pe pielea mea incapatanta, si de multe ori mirosul se impregneaza in haine si par si il simt si la cateva zile dupa aplicare.

The perfume in the picture is a DP replica of Dolce & Gabbana D&G. I got this as a gift, I use it in the colder seasons because it has a really strong and sweet scent that I can’t stand in the summer. I don’t know how the original D&G is, but this replica hold up on my stubborn skin up to 12 hours and the scent gets in my hair and clothes and I still smell it days after. 

Lipglossul e L’oreal Caresse in nuanta Marylin, swatch aiciE light e nelipicios, dureaza destul de mult si e o nuanta absolut superba, naturala, glossy. Nu usuca, nu lipeste parul, e o textura grozava pentru un lipgloss.

The lipgloss is a L’oreal Caresse in the shade Marylin, swatch is here. It’s a light, non-sticky gloss, it lasts a fairly amount of time, the shade is gorgeous, natural but glossy but watershinely sexy. I’m inventing words again :P. It doesn’t dry the lips, your hair does not get stuck in it, it’s a great texture.

Si ultimul lucru din poza e readerul Kindle, dar nu el e cel pe care vreau sa-l laud. Pentru iubitoarele si iubitorii de fantasy, va recomand Name of the Wind, primul roman din trilogia autorului Patrick Rothfuss. E cel mai bun roman fantasy pe care l-am citit in ultima vreme, opinia mea e ca mai bine il cititi in engleza, ca si mine, traducerea de la noi putea fi mai buna decat e. Si ca sa va imboldesc sa o cautati, va spun ca rareori gasesc o carte care sa-mi palca atat de mult, incat la finalul celui de-al doilea volum, cand am aflat ca cel de-al treilea nu a aparut inca, am simtit vreo cateva zile ca nu mai am nici un scop momentan, :)) uitati asa te poate deprima o carte f buna.

And the last thing is my Kindle reader, but not the item per say, but the Name of the wind fantasy novel , by Patrick Rothfuss. It’s the best fantasy I’ve read lately and I can’t tell you how pissed I was when I finished the second book and realized that the third one is not yet released. As an avid reader, but one that rarely gets to really like a novel so much as this one, I literally felt abandoned and left without a purpose for a few days after I finished it. 😦
