MUA blusher

I’ve had this blusher for a few months and I haven’t used it just because I wanted to show you how pretty it is brand new. Well, I failed to keep the promise to myself and have started using it a few weeks ago :) The blusher (shade 2) comes in a pretty plastic container that looks quite durable (but we’ll see about that when it falls down for the first time!). It has an apricot-y shade when used in small amounts and becomes really pink when applied in more coats. The shade is much less intense on my picture than in reality, but aren’t colors are always different on pictures? :)

To rdečilo imam že nekaj mesecev in ga nisem uporabljala ravno zato, da vam pokažem, kako lepo je, ko je novo. No, to mi ni uspelo, saj ga pridno uporabljam že nekaj tednov :) Rdečilo (odtenek 2) je v prikupni majhni posodici iz plastike in deluje precej močno (oz. bom več o tem vedela, ko mi bo prvič padlo na tla!). V majhnih količinah je marelične barve, če pa ga uporabim malo več, takoj postane močneje roza. Na moji sliki je namreč precej manj močno kot je v resnici, pa saj so barve na slikah vedno malo drugačne :)

The blusher is a little bit shimmery, just the way I like it, and contains its matt texture in bigger amounts. Overall, I really like that I can build the color gradually. Besides, the blush is long lasting, which comes in handy in summer.

Rdečilo se, tako kot je meni všeč, malenkost sveti, vendar tudi v večjih količinah ohrani močno matirano teksturo. Če povzamem, všeč mi je, da se lahko barvo z več nanosi nadgradi. Poleg tega je rdečilo zelo dolgo obstojno in res primerno za poletje.

An early birthday present: Real Techniques

Well then, I succumbed to the their charms. The charms of the Real Techniques brushes, obviously. I’ve been resisting buying them because I was pretty satisfied with my old blush brush and foundation sponge. Since my sister ordered the Stippling Brush and was completely thrilled about it, I tried the “outstanding” brush myself. The result? Now I have my own foundation and blush brush. ;)

No, pa sem tudi jaz podlegla njihovemu šarmu. Šarmu Real Techniques čopičev, namreč. Kar dolgo sem se jim upirala,  saj sem bila zelo zadovoljna s svojim čopičem za rdečilo in gobico za nanašanje pudra. Ker pa je sestra naročila Stippling Brush in je bila popolnoma navdušena, sem ta “izjemni” čopič poskusila tudi sama. Rezultat? Zdaj imam čopiča za nanašanje podlage in rdečil tudi sama. ;)

I managed to get a great coverage with only one application, which is way faster compared to a sponge. And not to mention the fact that the sponge absorbs a lot of foundation over and over again. Let me just mention that I save at least one third of the foundation at each use. I apply the foundation on some parts of my face with my hands and then use the stippling brush in circular movements.

Z zelo malo podlage sem dosegla super prekrivnost z enim samim nanosom, kar je v primerjavi z gobico trajalo celo večnost. Da sploh ne omenjam dejstva, da gobica vedno znova veliko podlage vpije. Za primerjavo naj povem, da porabim vsaj tretjino manj podlage kot prej. Meni je najlažje, da z rokami podlago nanesem na nekaj predelov na obrazu, nato pa podlago s čopičem in krožnimi gibi nanesem na kožo.

I am not entirely sure how much I like the Blush Brush, however. It applied a bronzer in powder wonderfully. But since it is extremely soft, I had difficulties with a harder blush − it was seen only on the brush and not on my cheeks. It seems like I will use my old blush for a bit harder blushes :)

Nisem še čisto prepričana, kakšno je moje mnenje o čopiču za rdečila. Bronzer v prahu je sicer prekrasno nanesel na lička. Ker pa je zelo mehek, je bilo malo trše rdečilo vidno samo na čopiču, na ličkih pa ne. Očitno bom za trša rdečila še vedno uporabljala stari čopič :)

Blueberry sorbet

Blueberries, blueberriiiiies! Is there anyone who does not like them in cakes and desserts, for lunch or dinner … Since it is getting quite hot outside and I still like desserts in the summer, I decided to prepare a simple sorbet for every occasion (even breakfast) ♥ Blueberry sorbet is sour because of blueberries, sweet because of honey and refreshing because of mint − basically everything a sorbet needs to be.

Borovnice, borovniceee! Le kdo jih ne mara v torticah in sladicah, za kosilo ali večerjo … Ker je zunaj že precej vroče in ker imam seveda tudi poleti rada sladice, sem se odločila, da pripravim enostaven sorbet za vsako priložnost (tudi zajtrk)  ♥  Borovničev sorbet je zaradi borovnic kiselkast, zaradi medu sladek in zaradi mete osvežilen − torej vse, kar sorbet mora biti.

Besides a blender we need only four ingredients:

           three cups of frozen blueberries    five mint leaves    two big tbsp honey                    

   3/4 cup water

Blend all the ingredients for a few minutes. If the mixture is hard to blend, you can add more water. In principle, the sorbet could be eaten right away, but it melts really fast. This is why I put it into freezer for about half an hour.

Poleg mešalnik potrebujemo samo štiri sestavine:

trije lončki zmrznjenih borovnic    pet listkov mete (po želji več)     dve veliki žlici medu     3/4 lončka vode

Vse sestavine skupaj z mešalnikom mešamo nekaj minut. Če se miksa bolj težko, lahko dodamo še malo vode. Načeloma bi sorbet lahko jedli že takoj, vendar se zelo zelo hitro topi, zato sem ga dala v zmrzovalnik za približno pol ure.

Serve the sorbet into cups and garnish with a few mint leaves. Bon appétit! :)

Nato sorbet serviramo v lončke in okrasimo z nekaj listki mete. Dober tek! :)
