Lily Lolo Pressed Eye Shadow Brassed Off

June 27, 2014


Rednim bralkam je verjetno že jasno, da nisem ravno največja ljubiteljica senčil. Ne me narobe razumeti, zelo so mi všeč a v mojem vsakdanjem življenju se pojavijo redko. Nobenega drugega izgovora nimam kot tega, da se mi z njimi preprosto ne ljubi ukvarjati. včasih pa tudi ne želim izgledati kot da sem porabila pol ure za ličenje. In ne da je s tem kaj narobe! Ob vsem napisanem pa je rahla sprememba v ličenju vedno dobrodošla in pri meni je za to v zadnjem času krivo Lily Lolo senčilo za oči v odtenku Brassed Off*. Čudovito senčilo v zemeljskem odtenku, ki se mi zdi nadvse primerno za poletni čas, ko je koža rahlo zagorela. Čeprav moja ni skoraj nikoli, ker sem obsedena s sončnimi kremami, sploh tistimi za obraz. :)

Če ne veste, Lily Lolo je pred nekaj meseci prenovilo svojo embalažo in moram priznati, da mi je "sleek", črno bela embalaža zelo všeč. Narejena je iz trde plastike, senčilo se trdno zapre in je tako super za potovanja. V plus štejem tudi priročno ogledalo in dejstvo, da se mi ob padcu na tla senčilo ni zdrobilo! Pa mi je že dvakrat zletelo iz rok.

Brassed Off  je medeninast/bronz odtenek z drobnimi, zlatimi bleščicami. Krasen vsakodneven odtenek s katerim lahko ustvarimo tudi intenzivnejši večerni videz. In čeprav senčil ne uporabljam vsakodnevno, vseeno menim, da takšnih odtenkov ni nikoli dovolj. Gre za senčilo tople barve zato ga najraje uporabljam v kombinaciji z oranžnimi in rdečimi rdečili ter šminkami, lepo se poda tudi k tistim bolj oranžno-koralnim odtenkom, rozne pa raje pustim pri miru. Senčilo je dobro pigmentirano, mehko, se ne drobi, z lahkoto se zabriše in je tako zelo prijetno za uporabo. Kar me moti je, da se nabira v gube in prav tako ni tako dolgo obstojno kot piše v opisu izdelka. No, je pa res, da imam kar mastne veke ter da se še nisem podala v iskanje popolne podlage za senčila, tako da se morda to dogaja le meni. Poleg tega pa senčilo vsebuje olja in je lahko razlog tudi v tem.
Aja, želela sem omeniti še to, da zelo cenim, da ima Lily Lolo tudi stisnjena senčila oziroma v kamnu in ne le v prahu, kot marsikatera znamka mineralnih ličil. Imam Alverdino rdečilo v prahu in ga sploh nikoli ne uporabljam, preveč packanja.

Za konec pa še prikaz senčila na meni. Prve fotografije niti nisem mislila objavljati, ker je odtenek presvetel za uporabo le ob trepalnicah, a sem to vseeno želela pokazati. Na drugi fotografiji pa ga imam na celotni zgornji veki. Morda objavim še večerni videz, le ustvariti ga moram najprej. :)

My regular readers (Heey!) sure know that I'm not really the biggest fan of eye shadows. Don't get me wrong, I do like them, some of them are truly beautiful but for my everyday look I'm just too lazy to use them. And sometimes I just don't wanna look like I've been doing my makeup for half an hour. And no, there is nothing wrong with that! First world problems, I know! :) That being said, it's nice to change it up a bit and it the last month my little helper has been the Lily Lolo Pressed Eye Shadow in Brassed Off*. A gorgeous earthy shade which I think is perfect for summer days and tan skin - but mine never is because I'm slightly obsessed with sunscreen. :) 
Now, I'm sure you know that Lily Lolo changed their packaging into a sleek, black and white prettines. I like it! It's made out of a sturdy plastic that closes real tight, therefore great for travel. Another plus is the mirror and the fact that it didn't break when I accidentally dropped it. Twice.
Brassed Off is a bronzy brass shade with beautiful gold shimmer - the name says it all really. Everyday, earthy, natural shade that can be also used for evening makeup looks. And even though I don't use eye shadows very often I think that you can't have to many of those kind of shades. Brassed Off is a warm shade so I love to use it with orange and red blushes and lipsticks, it also looks nice with orangy-peachy-coral shades. The pinks are best left alone I think. :) Eye shadow has good pigmentation, it's soft and creamy, blendable, nice to use. I really like that it's not powdery. The thing that botheres me is that it creases on me. And it's not as long lasting as it says in the description of the product. Okay but it is true that I have quite oily lids and I haven't found the perfect eye primer. Well I didn't even search for it. :) Maybe I'll go for The All Natural Face eyeshadow primer, any thoughts on it? What are you using? :) Oh and besides that, the eye shadow also contains some oils and maybe that can also be one of the reasons for creasing.
Now for the photos of me wearing it. In the first I just wanted to show you that it's a bit light for doing a line close to the lashes but it looks nice as a wash of color on the entire lid. Maybe I'll also post an evening look with it but I'll just have to create it first. :)


That's all for today, have a lovely weekend!

Love,
Jana x

  3. Zelo lep odtenek in krasno pristaja k oranžni šminki:) Jaz imam najraje take rjavkaste odtenke. Verjetno ni krivo olje v senčilu, ampak bi res potrebovala primer. Jaz imam prav tako zelo oljnate veke in brez njega si nikoli ne namažem senčil:) Zelo ti paše:))

  11. this eyeshadow does look very pretty on you, I personally don't like Lily Lolo because some of their products contain carmine

    1. Thank you Sarah! Oh I know, I'm so bad when it comes to avoiding carmine :/

  12. It looks gorgeous on you Jana! I love how you combined it with a bright lipstick :)
    I feel you girl, I have oily lids too and I just got Benecos eyeshadow primer. It keeps the eyeshadow on for a few hours, but didn't prevent the crease in the long run. xx

  14. Hi! I'd love to know what make up products you are wearing in your photos, in particular the lipstick. Is it Lily Lolo Lipstick in French Flirt? Thanks!

    1. Hi sweetie! On the second photo, the orange lipstick is Red Apple Lipstick in Sunkissed, and on the first is Alverde Magic Kiss (Limited edition) which is actually identical to French Flirt :))

  15. I really like this shade and think it would be a great neutral base or lid color for warmer skin tones. You look stunning!
