Review: Back to liquid

miercuri, august 29, 2012

 Imi voi aduna creierii bezmetici pentru a va face o dezvaluire oarecum socanta. L-am inselat. :( Da, ati auzit bine. L-am inselat! 

Pe fondul de ten mineral. xD

I will try to gather my crazy brains to reveal you a socking information. I cheated on him! :( Yes, you heard that clear. I cheated!

On my mineral foundation. xD

Imi cer scuze ca nu va pot prezenta fondul de ten care zace-n portfardul propriu, insa sticla arata absolut zalnic si nici o magie nu o va face prezentabila. L-am luat cu mine in vacanta si desi sunt foarte atenta cu lucrurile mele, am avut niste zile mai zbanghii...si s-a vazut. xD Oricum va pot spune sigur ca recipientul este rezistent la socuri.

I apologive for not being able to present you my own foundation bottle as it looks absolutely disgusting and nothing will make it look better. I took it with me when I went on holiday and even tho I am usually careful with my things, this time I had a few crazy days...and I could def see the effects. xD But I can surely say the bottle is shock proof. Tornado proof even. xD

Oricum, sa va spun cum am ajuns sa am in colectie 2 fonduri de ten lichide (unul dintre ele fiind cel de mai sus) si sa renunt, cel putin ptr o perioada, la cel mineral.

Anyways, let me tell you how I managed to slip in my makeup bag 2 bottles of liquid foundation and to abandon the mineral one, at least for some time.

Era o zi intunecata si ploioasa...stand singura si uitandu-ma pe geam la picaturile ce se scurgeau pe geam...

It was a gloomy, rainy day...sitting alone and looking at the rain drops that were dripping on the window's glass...

Ok, nu asa incepe povestea. xD Pur si simplu mi s-a terminat Puretouch-ul si am decis sa ii mai dau o sansa fondului de ten lichid.

All right, that's not how the story goes. Basically, my fav mineral foundation has run out and I decided to give one more chance to the liquid ones.

Dar cum am ajuns tocmai la L'Oreal True Match? Are o selectie mare de nuante, a primit complimente din partea multor fete si promite sa se blenduiasca usor. Pe langa asta, m-a atras faptul ca zicea ca se adapteaza culorii si texturii pielii. Ori asta este foarte important pentru o fata alba ca branza...

But how did I end up buying L'Oreal True match? Well, it has a nice colour selection, it has received tone of compliments and it promises to be easy to blend. Besides that, I was attracted to the idea of adapting to your skin's colour and texture. That's a really important thing for a white girl.

Face tot ce promite? Cam da.

But does it do what it says? Kinda.

La capitolul adaptare este absolut incredibil, m-a uimit. Inainte sa merg la mare eram alba-alba si mi se potrivea perfect (nuanta N1 Ivory). Deoarece nu ma asteptam sa ma bronzez, l-am luat doar pe el cu mine si recunosc ca m-am cam panicat cand am vazut ca ma innegresc usor-usor...Credeam ca o sa trebuiasca sa merg "goala" prin club sau pe strada. Dar nu a fost cazul! Mi s-a potrivit si cand eram cu aproape o nuanta mai inchisa! Plus ca da un finish superb, sanatos si stralucitor fara sa bata la ochi prea tare.

It's absolutely incredible at adapting to your skin, it took me by surprise. Before I went to the seaside I was as white as I can get and the shade this foundation is in (N1 Ivory) matched perfectly. Because I didn't believe I was going to get darker, I only brought this with me and panicked a little when I got tanned. I thought I was going to walk around "naked", in the club or on the streets. But it wasn't the case! It matched my skin even when I was almost one shade darker! And it gives such a nice finish, dewy, healthy without being too much.

De blenduit se blenduieste foarte usor. Am incercat la inceput sa-l "bag" in piele cu pensula, dar am observat ca am un spor mai mare cu degetele. Este foarte lichid si trebuie actionat imediat, altfel raman dungi inestetice. Si o sa arati de parca suferiti de o boala rara. xD

As for blending, it blends in nicely. At the beginning I used a brush to apply it but I saw that fingers were the way to go. It's really liquid and you have to move quickly, otherwise there will be some streaking. And you might look like you have some sort of a rare disease. xD


Imi place faptul ca are pompita. Una care dozeaza cat vrei tu, nu jumate din sticla. xD Ah si nu te omoara cu parfumul lui. Exista fonduri de ten pe care nu le pot suporta deoarece emana un miros care ar da pe spate si un soricel (ca sa nu zic sobolan).

I love the fact that it has a pump. One that doses the right amount, not half of the bottle. Oh and it doesn't kill you with the perfume. 

Ce nu prea-mi place este ca nu acopera cine stie ce si rezistenta la transfer e super mica. Nu a fost placut sa ma trezesc rosie si transpirata dupa nici o ora de bantuit strazile. Recunosc ca n-am folosit pudra, dar nah...categoric nu este pentru o persoana cu un ten oily si plin de imperfectiuni. Riscati sa va treziti aratand ca o gogoasa, fix in momentul cel mai important al zilei.

What I don't like is that it doesn't cover all that well and it transfers easily. It was not fun to see myself all red and sweaty after an hour of walking. I admin that I didn't use any powder to top it off, but...it's still not really ok if you are a super oily blemish kind of person. 


Pretul daca nu ma insel este in jur de 50 de lei iar de gasit se gaseste peste tot. Nu stiu daca l-as recumpara, sa vedem cum ne intelegem la iarna, presimt ca atunci va fi perioada lui de glorie. Dar cu pudra pe deasupra!

The price varies from place to place or country. You might have to look it up online or in stores. It can usually be found everywhere, considering that it's drugstore. I don't know if I will repurchase it, I'll see how I cope with it when the weather will be colder.

Siiii...am terminaaat! Va asteapta multe postari din partea mea, unele foarte foarte dragute. Chiar si niste categorii noi. :D

Annnnd...I am done! Lots of posts coming up, really cute ones. And some new categories. :D
