Bloggers Beauty Secrets ❤ Essence Shape & Shadows Eye Contouring Palette


Moje iskustvo pokazuje da su neplanirane kupovine uvek najbolje kupovine! I upravo je zvezda današnjeg članka rezultat jedne neplanirane, ali zadovoljavajuće kupovine. Sigurna sam da ste, ukoliko pratite novosti iz Essence kozmetičke kuće, primetile saradnju brenda s 4 blogerice u cilju razvoja još jedne limitirane edicije- Bloggers Beauty Secrets. Diana, Palmira, Mary i Serena ostvarile su san svake zaljubljenice u lepotu, te su pomogle u kreiranju različitih paleta koje su tajna dobrog i razigranog izgleda, a celu kolekciju prate i pripadajući lakovi za nokte! Ukoliko vam je ova priča i dalje nepoznata, molim klik na link kako biste pokrenule nekoliko-minutno uživanje :) Paleta za koju sam se odlučila, u momentu kupovine bila je i jedina dostupna, ali meni u tom trenu i te kako potrebna jer sam upravo potrošila najdraži set za popunjavanje obrva (Catrice eyebrow set senki). Iako svesna da vam upravo kvarim onaj momenat u kome same procenjjete je li mi se proizvod dopao, ili nije- moram napisati da sam Shape & Shadows Eye Contouring paletom i više nego zadovoljna, a u nastavku ću vam napisati i zašto :)

My experience so far shows that all unplanned purchases are always the best ones! And the star of today's article is one of unplanned, but very satisfying purchase. I am sure you've already noticed something interesting was happening behind the doors of Essence cosmetics in the last few months, announcing their newest limited edition in collaboration with 4 awesome bloggers in terms of creating the essence of beauty products that are, according to those four ladies, perfect for achieving amazing, refreshing, playful looks. Diana, Palmira, Mary and Serena have acomplished the dream of all us, beauty lovers, creating 4 lovely palettes, followed by lovely nail polishes. If this story still seems a bit unknown, I will be linking snippet from Essence page here, so you can explore the products a bit more. Palette I decided to try and, honestly, the only one available in the store at the moment, was the exact one I needed, simply because there has been few days since I completed my favourite eyebrow set, from Catrice. I am aware that next thing will be a huge spoiler alert, but I really, instantly and fully fell in love with this beautiful Shape & Shadows Eye Contouring palette and if you keep reading, you'll find out why :)
Shape & Shadows Eye Contouring paleta kombinuje proizvode za postizanje fenomenalnog izgleda obrva i kapaka, sve u nosivim, pastelnim nijansama. U sebi sadrži 3 smeđe nijanse: Hazel Grooe, Audrey Highbrow i Brigitte Brown, sve u mat varijanti i 2 nijanse u metalik izvedbi: Marylin Metallic, nežnu bakarnu s pinky-gold odsjajem, te highlighter Billie Vanilli u bisernoj, šampanj verziji. Mat nijanse namenjene su popunjavanju obrva i jako mi se dopada što je gradacija tonova takva da dopušta popunjavanje na vrlo prirodan i decentan način. Ja ih popunjavam tako da lagano na najširi, deo obrve prema sredini lica, nanesem najsvetliju nijansu, zatim luk obrve naglasim srednjom nijansom, a sam kraj (repić) obrve lagano završim najtamnijom nijansom i u tom slučaju postižem effortless, ali uredan izgled. Nijanse su odlične pigmentacije i divno se kupe Zoeva Soft Paint liner kistom (koji koristim za obrve jer je savršeno sečen). U paleti se nalazi i Prime & Fix vosak koji inače ne bih koristila, ali je kvaliteta voska u ovoj paleti zaista dobra i zaista lepo drži celu priču na okupu, bez topljenja, razmazivanja, ili drugih neželjenih efekata. Često, pre nego li pokupim senke, kist uronim u vosak kako bi pravilnije i u oštrijim linijama nanosila proizvod na obrve. I funkcioniše odlično! Highlighter je sasvim u redu i poprilično je postojan kroz dan, a nanosim ga na luk ispod obrva, te u unutrašnji ugao kapka. Nijansa Marylin Metallic na kapku deluje posebno, diskretno, ali nikako neprimetno. Za dužu postojanost preporučila bih prethodno nanošenje primer-a. U paletu je uključen i dvostrani aplikator, no ja ga ne pronalazim korisnim samo zato što koristim svoj provereni ''alat'' :).

Shape & Shadows Eye Contouring Palette combines different makeup products for achieving phenomenal appearance of eyebrows and eyelids in wearable, casual, but noticeable pastel shades. This palette contains 3 brown shades: Hazel Grooe, Audrey Highbrow and Brigitte Brown, all 3 in matte and 2 shades with metallic finish: Marylin Metallic, gentle copper-ish with golden pink undertone and Billie Vanilli, highlighter in pearly, champagne shade. Matte shades are very helpful with completing eyebrows look and I really love tonal gradation because it helps me fill my eyebrows so they finally look very effortless, natural, but neat. I usually apply the lightest shade of brown on the outer, wider part of my eyebrows, then emphasize the arch with the middle toned brown, and finish with the darkest shade on the tail of my eyebrows. All three shades are excellent in pigmentation and easy to apply. I usually use Zoeva's Soft Paint liner brush, simply because it's so lovely cut and makes all the work easier. Palette contains Prime & Fix wax, the thing I almost never use when filling my eyebrows, but this one is so good, especially because it doesn't smudge, nor it makes my eyebrows look messy after hours. I usually dip my brush into the wax before picking up eyeshadows, simply because it holds the pigment much better and allows me to make sharper, more precise lines. And it works great! Highlighter is also lovely and pretty ''stay in place'' during the day. I apply it just under my eyebrows and in the inner corner of my lid to achieve eye-opening effect. Marylin Metallic is very discreet, but definitely noticeable shade that will lift the whole lid look and make your eye look brighter. It's not too pigmented, so I'd recommend using primer before. This palette containing double sized applicator, but I don't really find it useful because I love my usual brushes :). 
O samoj ambalaži ne moram pisati previše; izrađena je od čvrstog kartona s magnetnim zatvaranjem, dizajnom je vrlo zanimljiva i nešto je što će svako primetiti kada je izvadite iz npr. torbe, nesesera. Dizajn ambalaže je veseo, ali nikako detinjast i bez problema za paletu mogu napisati da je esencijalan dodatak u trenutku kad ste na putu, van kuće, a niste u prilici sa sobom nositi apsolutno svaki artikal kojim se inače šminkate. Nijanse u paleti dovoljne su za kreiranje elegantnog look-a koji pristaje svim tonovima kože i nijansama očiju :) Integrirano ogledalo je veliki plus. Niže možete videti na koji način ja nanosim i kombinujem senke za obrve i kapke, te kako sve to izgleda u konačnici :) Mary s bloga Strike a pose napravila je odličan posao!

I wouldn't write too much about the packaging; it's made of quality cardboard with magnet lid, designed to look very interesting and noticeable once you take it out from your bag. The whole design of this packaging is very playful and cheer, but not childish or immature and I could say that this palette is such a good and essential helper when you are on the road, travelling, with no possibility to bring all those items you usually use. All shades in this palette are enough to create elegant look that suits all skin tones and eye colours. Integrated mirror is a big plus. Below you can see photos of how I like to combine and wear these shades. Honestly, I'm really impressed with this palette and Mary, you did an awesome job :)
Mislim da ne moram posebno naglašavati da ova paleta, ukoliko na nju naiđete, a trebate set za uređivanje obrva- ima moju toplu preporuku jer je multifunkcionalna i vrlo zadovoljavajuća. Cena palete iznosi 43,90 kn (oko 6€) i dostupna je u Muller drogerijama. Nisam sigurna hoće li kolekcija biti dostupna u DM, Kozmo i Bipa drogerijama. 

If you are in search of products for eyebrows filling, or you'd like to try something new, but functional, this palette has my recommendations. It's very multifunctional and satisfying. The price of Shape & Shadows palette in Croatia is around 6€. 
Jeste li isprobale nešto iz Bloggers Beauty Secrets kolekcije? Kako vam se dopada moja paleta? :) Have you already tried anything from Bloggers Beauty Secrets limited edition? How do you like my palette? :)

  4. Ova paleta mi se cini bas zgodnom za putovanja, a i ambalaza je preslatka. :D Drago mi je sto su ubacili vise nijansi, ja isto popunjavam obrve kao ti da na prednji dio stavljam svjetlije nijanse, a na zadnji dio tamnije da budu sto prirodnije. :) Iako, moram priznati da u zadnje vrijeme nesto jace naglasavam obrve, isprobavam nove lookove :P
