New In (6)

It's been a while since I talked about the products that I either bought or got. Since it was a bit crazy with so much black Friday deals, I'll probably have another such post up soon. Or at least when I get all other products that I ordered.

Zoeva 238 Luxe Precise Shader

Past weekend I went for a bit of a shopping in Graz and I purchased this Zoeva brush, because I was looking for something small and flat to fit in my inner corners. So far, this seems like a perfect brush for that. It's similar shape to 234 Luxe Smoky Shader, but it's really tiny, like a quarter of that 234. 

Kiko 3D Hydra Lipgloss in 27 Pearly Lavender

I don't know what exactly possessed me to buy it, but I must have been in my typical look-it's-shiny state. I was actually planing on getting a golden one, but this one looked the most sparkly out of all and I loved it. It has a cool lavender base that is not too noticeable on the lips and a mix of silver and gold shimmer. The shimmer really shines and I love it. I haven't tried it on the lips yet, but I have a feeling I'm gonna love it. I intend to use it as a topper on top of other lip products.

I also bought a bunch of Kiko Smart Nail Lacquer which are actually gifts for others, so I won't be mentioning them much.

Primark False Eyelashes, Makeup Brush Cleaner Pad and Live, Love Sparkle Cream Eyeshadow Palette

Primark lashes are good for the price. They are cheap and fairly soft. I also like that they don't have a thick band. I got one in Natural style and Individual, which I prefer over regular false eyelashes. I also got that pad, because I've been needing something new for cleaning makeup brushes and it was cheap. I haven't tried it yet. I also had to get the creamy eyeshadow palette with glitters. It basically has a cream base which doesn't even seem to have any color to it. In the cream are different colored glitters. When you swatch it with a hand you get a lot of glitter that you can apply pretty much everywhere. I haven't tried it on the eyes yet, but it doesn't seem to have any fallout. This is perfect palette for festive season and for those that love everything glittery.

Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Mask Green Tea

Sheet masks became quite popular and I was only trying drugstore versions and non of the famous Korean ones, so I got these as a first try and I love them. I already ordered three more. I love convenience of a sheet mask. It has a thin sheet which is heavily soaked. There's even some of the product left in the bag and I usually use it as a serum the second day. Green tea scent is perfect if you adore green tea. It's refreshing and herbal. It also moisturized my skin really well. I leave sheet masks on for about half an our and my skin seemed to soak most of it in, because the sheet was becoming dry. I really like these from Innisfree.

COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch

Inside are 24 round patches with anti acne ingredients. When you get a stubborn pimple that just doesn't seem to go away or you know that it will just evolve into a bigger bump, apply this one and it actually dries it. I would say that this feels like it sucks out grossness from the pimple and sort of leaves a burnt stain. This actually goes away in a couple of days. If your pimple is super stubborn, you will need to reapply these. I usually use this at night and when I already squeezed the pimple out. 

Clio Kill Brown Waterproof Brush Liner

I've already mentioned it a lot of times on my Instagram. I ordered it by mistake, because I wanted a black one. Turns out, I love brown just as much. It makes every winged liner look less harsh and warmer. It can be layered for a deeper brown, but it's a fairly natural brown shade not too dark, not too light. I find brown formula a bit thinner and not as pigmented as black, but it doesn't bother me. I just go over the line, if I want it to be darker.

It's a chemical toner and it keeps my skin at bay and protects it from recurring milia and whiteheads. I've already used up one bottle and decided to get another one, because I like it so much.

Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer

I've heard that this is a dupe for Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion and I wanted to test it out for myself. I can already tell you that this works pretty much the same. Urban Decay is a bit more beige, while this one has a bit of a pink undertone. They both feel the same on the lids and they wear the same as well. The only difference is the price and I will probably just buy this one in the future.

Holika Holika Wonder Drawing Skinny Eyebrow in 02

Yet another so called dupe for Anastasia Brow Wiz. It is impossible to find a super thin eyebrow pencil in our drugstores. Koreans are ahead of us with this one from Holika Holika. I had a hard time choosing the right shade for me, because the swatches on the internet are so poor. I got 02, because it looked the most similar. It's a bit warmer medium brown. My natural brows are really taupe and my hair color is warm, so I always prefer slightly warm toned brows. It is however hard to make it look natural, because for that I would need something exactly same toned as my brows. Anyway, this product is amazing. It has a super thin tip that lets you create hair like strokes. I also like the spoolie for brushing it through. It also last on my brows through the whole day. 

Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipstick in 03 Wow Effect

I bought this based on Sara's recommendation. She said it was a dupe for MAC Mehr. I actually bought it because I liked the shade. It was in the beginning of fall and I loved the shade then, because it's like a berry shade. I just haven't been reaching for it a lot. It's an OK formula. I find it a bit heavier than most matte lipsticks. It's not dead matte, but I like that. If you're looking for matte affordable lipsticks, those are not bad. But I just didn't reach for this shade as much as I thought I would.

E.l.f. High Definition Powder in Sheer

This one is a repurchase. I've had this huge pot for a really long time and I've grown to love it again. Especially in the summer, because it's so finely milled and light on the skin. That is why I repurchase it, because the old one was getting a bit clumpy. Shade Sheer is actually white, but it's supposed to be transparent. It might look dusty on medium to dark skin tones.

Trend It Up Powder Blush in 010 and 020

I love the shade 050 so much that I got two more. 010 is a lovely classic light pink shade. It's the kind of shade that goes with everything. 020 is my kind of light peach shade. I wanted something a bit more orange based in a somewhat matte formula. This formula actually has a lovely sheen to it, but not as much as H&M blushes. 

Catrice Longlasting Lip Pencil in 130 Prince Cherry

I wanted to get some cheap red and berry lip pencils, because the fall season needed it. This is a classic cool toned, but darker, red shade. It's one that I can pair with most darker red lipsticks. Formula is just buttery enough and not too hard.

Essence Lipliner in 08 Red Blush

Formula is the same to Catrice and the shade is a dark berry that will pair well with most of my berry lipsticks. Cheap and cheerful product.

Ebelin Blush Brush

I got this to use as a powder brush and I love it for that. It's a bit tapered and has really soft synthetic bristles. Because of the tapered shape, I can also go under my eyes with it. I adore soft brushes and this one really is soft and it picks up a light layer of powder. Great purchase.

Essence The Little X-Mas Factory Eyeshadow Palette

I got this as a gift from a friend. I wasn't that excited about this Limited Edition, but I did love the design and shades of this palette. I just didn't get it, because I usually don't use these kind of palettes, I forget about them. I haven't tried it yet, but I hear the pigmentation is not the best. That second and gold shades speak to me, so I'm hoping for the best.

Nabla Eyeshadow Refills in Caramel and Clementine

Eyeshadows are probably my favorite makeup products to invest in. I heard good thinG about Nabla brand, so I wanted to try just a few of their shades. Caramel is really warm yellow based brown. For me this is a crease shade and I like how extremely warm this is. I have a feeling that most wouldn't like this shade, but I do. Clementine is a bright light orange shade with gold sheen. It's the shade that I knew I'm gonna like. I love that Nabla has a lot of really unique shades with duochrome effects and colored sheens. The formula is on the dry side and I was a bit disappointed with the pigmentation. Morphe Brushes single shades have more pigmention as well as Zoeva palettes, which are still a winner in this pigmentation category. Nabla eyeshadows you need to layer to get the full opacity. 

Avon Life*

I got a body spray, lotion and perfume. This is a collaboration with Keno and I expected this to be powdery as most of Kenzo perfumes. Is not that powdery, but it's a very sophisticated and grown up fragrance. There's quite a strong floral burst in the beginning, but it wears down to a very classic woody undertone. I prefer it when it develops a bit. I was also sure that I wouldn't like it, but it has definitely grown on me and I've been reaching for it a lot. I wear it when I want to appear more grown up and classy. This is definitely not my typical scent, but I've heard that many like it and so do I.

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5

The Ordinary exploded on the internet and among beauty bloggers. It's a new brand by Deciem. The reason why it got so much buzz is because it offers a very clean ingredients list at a really affordable prices. I am not a skin care expert, but I've read that they revolutionized the market by offering ingredients in their pure version at a ridiculously low prices. Usually high end brands have very low doses of these ingredients in their products and they sell the products at a very high prices. Initially, with The Ordinary you get anything but ordinary. Of course, it got my interest and I ordered two products. So far I can say that I haven't had any dry patch on my skin. Hyaluronic acid is suppose to moisturize the skin as well as help with fine lines. I love it as a serum underneath a moisturizer and it seems to be working. It didn't wow me, however. It's a transparent jelly liquid.

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 2%

Niacinamide is supposedly proven to tackle pigmentation and make your pores appear smaller. It's also supposed to reduce blemishes and unclog pores. Zinc is apparently a very soothing and anti-inflammatory ingredient. I bought this in hopes of keeping my blemishes at bay and making my pores look smaller. They are a bit smaller, but that might just be the fact that my skin is not as oily as in the summer. I haven't seen any difference in blemishes and so far I can't tell if this actually helps with hyper pigmentation. I don't get as oily as I used to did. It's a muted jelly liquid.

Collecton Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer in 1 Fair

I also bought some product from Boots for the first time. Collection concealer is a cult favorite and I decided to try it. I like the formula, which is creamy and not too think. Shade fits me well, but is a bit cooler for my liking. I like that it has a really good coverage, although I do layer it under my eyes. I hate the packaging though, because it gets dirty and I am always squeezing out some of the product when I close it, which drives me crazy. 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes 

Surprise, surprise. Yet another NYX Lip Cream. You know that I praise their formula as the best matte liquid lipstick for dry lips. I wanted another shade. I hoped that Cannes would look more peachy on me, but it's actually a warm berry brownish shade. I like it, especially for fall. It's a bit more colorful than all my other nudes that I have from NYX.

Seche Vite Top Coat

My all time favorite top coat. I've tried others, but nothing comes even close to this one. It's just the best. Really long lasting, gives a shiny finish and doesn't smudge designs.

Duo Eyelash Adhesive

Yet another cult favorite product that I wanted to try out. I only tried it once and so far I don't like it. It has such a weird moldy smell to it and it dries really quickly. It also doesn't seem to hold the lashes nearly as good as the one from Artdeco. I hope this was just the first time and that I'll like it in the future.

Soap & Glory Orangeasm Body Butter

Mateja also got me a tester of this body butter and I've been applying it on my hands ever since. It's a really wintery fresh, and yet bitter, orange scent. I adore it. It also has a lovely whipped texture to it.

Avon Mega Effects Creamy Eyeshadows*

I only tried a few shades on my eyes so far, but I have to say I love it. At first they felt really hard to the touch and I was sure that this isn't going to work. But as soon as you break through that top layer they become more buttery. It also depends from shade to shade. I especially adore the fact that these last all day long. They literally dry on your lids and don't move at all. They are harder to apply because of a drier and thicker formula, but these are even more long lasting than Kiko Longlasting Stick Eyeshadows or Maybelline Color Tattoos.

Avon Nailwear Pro+ (metallic collection)*

I've already tried all the shades and can report that these are great, if you like metallics. It's a runny, but pigmented formula. They are a bit more long lasting than regular nail polish, because they have small shimmer in the formula. The lightest silver shade is surprisingly my favorite. From a distance it almost looks like that mirrored effect powders that everyone is wearing on top of their gel formulas. 

I've already reviewed these, so I won't go into details. A nice range of reds. I especially like lipstick formulas, because they feel super comfortable on the lips.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone

This was on my wish list for a while and I finally had the chance to get it or I should say that Nadja got it for me. I've heard so many good things about Becca highlighters and I've always admired it on YouTubers. It's definitely my most expensive highlighter so far and that was the only reason why I delayed buying it. You would think that I'll find a dupe for it in my collection, but I didn't. It's a lighter version of theBalm Mery-Lou Manizer. I was afraid that it would be too white, but it's actually perfect. It's fair enough for my skin tone, but still has a very light gold tone to it. It's not an in your face highlighter, but it's definitely shiny and has very fine shimmer. This is the perfect sophisticated highlighter that just goes perfectly with my light skin tone, but it still gives me a visible shine. So far, I am impressed.

Review: Avon True Colour Perfect Reds - Lipsticks and Nail Enamels

Avon already has True Colour lipstick range. For the holidays they've decided to add red collection. A perfect red lipstick for every woman. They also added True Colour Perfect Reds Pro+ nail polishes to their regular Nailwear Pro+ range. I actually like this range of only reds. Red is such a classic lip and nail shade that I think everyone should own at least one. It's also a beauty staple, because it goes with everything. 

Avon True Colour Perfect Reds offers 7 shades of lipsticks. I have 6 of them. They have a classic plastic shiny black packaging with a silver detail. I love the writing on it. It adds a lovely touch. Top of cap is transparent which makes it easier to spot the shade. 

In each lipstick is 3.6 grams of product and the regular price is 8.50€ (Slovenia).

Poppy Love - light orange based red. It will look amazing on light warm skin tones.
Lava Love - light pink based red. This is perfect for light cool skin tones. It has a very vibrant pink tone to it.
Berry Berry Nice - classic medium cool toned red with a hint of berry pink in it. This shade would probably look good on most light to medium skin tones. It's the only shade that has blue shimmer in the formula. 
Scarlet Siren - medium warm red. It's perfect for medium skin tones. It also has a somewhat brown tint to it. 
Perfect Red - dark brown red. This one has a very brown base to it and is perfect for medium to dark skin tones.
Cherry Jubilee - dark berry red. I would almost say it's more berry than a red shade. It has a purple warm undertone to it. It's perfect for medium to dark skin tones.

Formula is very buttery. It says that it's oil enriched formula with vitamin E. It's definitely sheerer and more buttery than for example Avon 3D Plumping lipsticks. The feel of it is similar to Avon Ultra Colour Indulgence lipsticks, but those are a lot sheerer. I adore the feel of it on the lips. They feel moisturizing, soothing and not sticky. It doesn't dry out my lips, it almost nourishes them. It's a very lightweight formula and not as creamy as some that tend to feel heavy on the lips because of thicker formulas.

They all have a shiny finish which stays that way through the day. I also appreciate the fact that it doesn't particularly enhance dry patches. It's so shiny that those don't even look that noticeable. 

Pigmentation is good, but not full on. You need to go over the lips at least two times to cover them. I only find the problem with Cherry Jubilee which needs to be layered a bit more, because it can look patchy if you don't apply it evenly. 

Because of the creamy formula and shiny finish they can be tricky to apply. I wear them without lip pencil, because they don't bleed. I do apply them with lip brush to get that perfect edge. If you have nicely shapes lips, you can just put it on straight from the bullet. They transfer and may go on your teeth if you don't clean up the inner edges.

This formula is not long lasting. They start to fade in about two hours time. You will need to reapply them. They fade fairly evenly. It's important to apply them evenly in order to wear off that way too. Otherwise it can look a bit patchy. Darker shades leave a lovely stain. You can also just wear them as a stain or blot them for a more matte finish. If you layer them up in thin coats they will last longer. If you want a more opaque look, I recommend applying lip pencil all over the lips and then going over with the lipstick for an added color and shine.

I like the scent of these lipsticks. They have a sort of fruity sweet scent and it's actually subtle enough. 

There's 7 nail polish shades to choose from and I have 6 shades. Nail polishes come in their classic square glass bottle with black top. In each is 10 ml of product and the regular price is 5.90€ (Slovenia).

I forgot to include the photo of nail polish brush, but it's a regular straight cut not too thin, not too thick brush

Tangfastic - light orange red. 
Red Bombshell - light pink red.
Ruby Slipper - medium classic cool toned red with pink and silver shimmer.
Real Red - medium warm red.
Royal Red - darker medium brown based red. 
Cherry Jubilee - dark berry red.

All nail polishes have a creamy finish. The only exception is Ruby Slipper, which has a bit of shimmer to it, but it's not all that visible. They are all well pigmented but need at least two coats to cover the nail. Shade Cherry Jubilee is the least pigmented and would probably need three coats. I applied two coats on all of these photos.

They dry fairly fast like most Avon nail polishes and have an averagely good staying power. On me they last for about three days which is normal wear time for my weak nails.

Because all the shades are red, be prepared for some staining of the nail and skin around it. Especially with the darker shades. I highly recommend you to apply some sort of base coat underneath.

I decided to pair lipstick and nail polish shades to show them how they look like applied on my skin tone. When I'm browsing for swatches, I always appreciate some demonstration on actual skin. 

My absolute favorite lipstick shades are Poppy Red (you know I love me some orange), Perfect Red (absolute favorite because of brown undertone) and Scarlet Siren (a lovely classic). From nail polish shades I like best Real Red (the most classic one), Royal Red (perfect amount of berry undertone), Tamgfastic (because of that orange) and Ruby Slipper (because of a twist with that shimmer).

I compared these reds to some of my other lipsticks. I especially wanted to swatch Poppy Love next to MAC Lady Danger just to see the difference. Lady Danger is a lot more orange, in fact it could just be called orange and not so much red orange. Poppy Love has that same orange undertone to it, but looks in fact cooler compared to Lady Danger.

I also didn't find any dupe for Lava Love. It's similar to Avon Ultra Colour Indulgence lipstick in Red Tulip. It also has very similar texture and finish. Red Tulip is darker and a bit more berry pink while Lava Love is a brighter and lighter pink red.

Berry Berry Nice is the only shade that I had more than one similar shades to compare to. Avon 3D Plumping lipstick in Hot Pants is the lightest and the most bright vivid pink of these all. Avon True Colour Perfectly Matte lipstick in Ravishing Rose is the closest to being a dupe. Because it's matte it's a lot more pigmented. Shade is very similar, although Ravishing Rose might be just slightly brighter, but the undertone is really similar. It also might be slightly more pink. Avon True Colour Perfectly Matte lipstick in Ruby Kiss is also similar, but it's again brighter in shade and slightly more warmer pink toned than Berry Berry Nice.

Scarlet Siren is similar to Avon Ultra Colour Lip Crayon in Red Haute. It has that same brownish red tone to it, but Red Haute is a lot sheerer and looks lighter. It's also slightly more red and not as brown based as Scarlet Siren.

I didn't find a dupe for Perfect Red, but I wanted to compare it to one of my favorite reds NYX Matte Lipsticks in Alabama. They are similar in tone, but Perfect Red is a shade or two darker and is a deeper red while Alabama looks more brown than actually red.

I don't have anything similar to Cherry Jubilee. All my other lipsticks are either more purple or brown based, but this one is a unique dark red with purple and brown mixed in one.

I also compared some of my red nail polishes. Tangfastic is similar to Avon Gel Shine in Fire Cracker. Fire Cracker is more orange. Maybelline Colorama in 150 also looks similar, but is a bit too red to be a dupe. 

Real Red is very similar to Avon Gel Shine in Roses Are Red. You have to look really close to see the difference. Roses Are Red is like a half shade darker and slightly more vibrant red. 

Royal Red looked similar to Maybelline Colorama in 15, but it turns out 15 is a bit more brownish. 

Ruby Slipper instantly reminded me of Avon Magic Effects Mineral Crush in Ruby. Ruby has a lot more dense glitter and instead of being silver, it's actually gold shimmer. It is also more pink based and obviously has a different sand finish. 

I love the fact that Avon offered nice range of reds for fair skin tones as well as darker skin tones. Lipsticks have a lovely comforting formula with shine. The formula is definitely a winner for me and all of those that may have problems with dry lips and are looking for a comfortable wear. You need to make an effort at application, but they definitely make a statement. If you're a bit afraid shiny red, you can still wear them as a stain or layer and blot them for a matte finish. If you're looking for something super opaque and long wearing, I would stay away from these.

I also love red nail polishes. The formula applies lovely, they are pigmented enough, last well and you have a wide range of red shades. It's such a classic that you can't really go wrong with it. 

You can also check out lovely swatches of nail polishes on Metka's blog.

Avon že ima linijo šmink imenovano True Colour. Za praznike so se odločili dodati rdečo kolekcijo. Popoln rdeč odtenek za vsako žensko. Svoji Nailwear Pro+ liniji lakov za nohte so prav tako dodali True Colour Perfect Reds lake. Meni je ta rdeča kolekcija všeč. Rdeča je najbolj klasičen odtenek šminke in laka za nohte. Vsak bi moral imeti doma vsaj en odtenek. Je lepotna stalnica, ki paše k vsemu. 

Perfect Reds ponuja 7 odtenkov šmink. Jaz jih imam 6. Embalaža je klasična sijoča črna plastika s srebrnim detajlom. Všeč mi je rdeč napis šminke, ki doda nekaj zanimivosti. Vrh pokrova je prozoren. Zaradi tega lažje najdete pravi odtenek šminke.

V vsaki šminki je 3.6 gramov izdelka in redna cena je 8.50€ (tukaj).

Poppy Love - svetlo rdeča z oranžnim podtonom. Izgledala bo odlično na svetlih toplih polteh.
Lava Love - svetlo rdeča z roza podtonom. Ta je popolna za vse s hladno svetlo poltjo. Ima precej živ roza podton.
Berry Berry Nice - klasična srednje rdeča s hladnim podtonom. Ta odtenek bi verjetno izgledal odlično na večini svetlih in srednjih polti. Je tudi edini odtenek, ki ima v formuli majhne modre bleščice.
Scarlet Siren - srednje topla rdeča. Je perfekten odtenek za srednje polti. Ima rahlo rjavkast podton. 
Perfect Red - temno rjavo rdeča. Ima zelo rjav podton in bo odlična za srednjo do temno polt.
Cherry Jubilee - temno jagodičasto rdeča. Jaz bi jo skoraj bolj uvrstila pod vijolične odtenke, ker ima precej vijoličnega podtona. Je perfekten odtenek za srednjo in temno polt.

Formula je zelo mazljiva. Je obogatena z olji in vitaminom E. Vsekakor je formula bolj prosojna in bolj mastna kot na primer Avon 3D Plumping šminke. Po občutku je formula podobna tisti od Avon Ultra Colour Indulgence šmink. Ampak te so še bolj prosojne. Obožujem občutek formule na ustnicah. Ustnice so navlažene, pomirjene in niso lepljive. Nikoli mi ne izsuši ustnic, kvečjemu imam občutek, da jih celo nahrani. Je zelo lahka formula in ni tako zelo kremna. Včasih kremne formule delujejo težke zaradi večje pigmentiranosti. 

Vse šminke imajo sijoč finiš, ki ostane tak skozi ves dan. Nisem opazila, da bi formula zelo pudarjala suhe predele ustnic. Bolj kot ne so ti neopazni zaradi zelo sijočega finiša.

So dobro pigmentirane, vendar ne bi rekla, da izredno. Vsekakor boste morali šminko nanesti v vsaj dveh slojih, da popolnoma prekrijete ustnice. Edini odtenek, ki se mi zdi problematičen je Cherry Jubilee. Tega je potrebno nanesti malo več, ker lahko izgleda neenakomeren, če ne pazite pri nanosu.

Zaradi kremaste formule in sijočega finiša, je lahko nanos težaven. Jaz jih nosim kar brez svinčnika za ustnice, ker sama barva ne uhaja v tanke linije okrog ustnic. Jih pa vedno nanesem s čopičem, da dobim ostre robove. Če imate lepo definiran rob ustnic, jih lahko nanesete kar direktno iz embalaže. Barva se prenaša in vam lahko gre tudi na zobe, če ne poskrbite za popolne notranje robove ustnic.

Formula ni dolgo obstojna. Odtenki začnejo bledeti že po dveh urah. To meni, da jih boste morale nanesti večkrat čez dan. Bledijo dokaj enakomerno. Pomembno je, da jih nanesete enakomerno, samo tako bodo tudi enakomerno zbledele. Temni odtenki pustijo madež in jih lahko nosite tudi kot rahel madež. To naredite tako, da nanesete tanek sloj šminke in ga zmasirate v ustnice kar s prsti. Če boste šminko popivnali z robčkom, lahko ustvarite dokaj mat finiš. Če šminko nanesete večkrat v tankih slojih, bo ta bolj obstojna. V primeru, da si želite bolj močnega odtenka pa priporočam da najprej nanesete svinčnik za ustnice po celotni ustnici in nato dodate šminko, ki bo dodala barvo in sijaj.

Všeč mi je vonj šmink. Je sladkasto saden, vendar ni preveč moteč.

Laki imajo klasične kvadrataste stekleničke s črnim pokrovom. V vsakem je 10 ml izdelka in redna cena je 5.90€ (tukaj).

Pozabila sem vključiti fotografijo s čopičem. Vsi laki imajo klasičen ravno odrezan čopič, ki ni preveč debel, niti preveč tanek.

Tangfastic - svetlo oranžno rdeč odtenek.
Red Bombshell - svetlo roza rdeč odtenek.
Ruby Slipper - srednje klasično hladno rdeč odtenek z roza in srebrnimi bleščicami.
Real Red - srednje toplo rdeč odtenek.
Royal Red - temnejši srednje rjavkast rdeč odtenek.
Cherry Jubilee - temno jagodičast rdeč odtenek.

Vsi laki imajo kremni finiš, razen Ruby Slipper, ki ima dodane bleščice. Čeprav te niso preveč vidne. Vsi so dobro pigmentirani, čeprav boste potrebovali vsaj dva nanosa, da prekrijete celoten noht. Odtenek Cherry Jubille je najslabše pigmentiran in bi verjetno potreboval tri nanose. Na vseh fotografijah sem nanesla dva sloja laka. 

Sušijo se precej hitro, kot vsi drugi Avonovi laki. So dokaj dobro obstojni. na mojih nohtih zdržijo tri dni, kar je dobra doba za moje krhke nohte.

Ker so vsi odtenki rdeči, bodite pripravljene na rdeče madeže na nohtih in okrog kože. To še posebej velja za temnejše odtenke. Vsekakor priporočam, da pod njih nanesete kakšen podlak. 

Moji najljubši odtenki šmink so Poppy Red (saj veste, da obožujem oranžno), Perfect Red (absoluten favorit zaradi rjavega podtona) in Scarlet Siren (čudovita klasika). Od lakov za nohte so mi najbolj všeč Real Red (najbolj klasičen), Royal Red (ima perfekten dodatek jagodičasto vijolične), Tangfastic (ker je pač oranžen) in Ruby Slipper (zaradi zanimivega finiša z bleščicami).

Moje rdeče odtenke šmink sem primerjala z novimi. Poppy Love sem želela primerjati z MAC Lady Danger. Lady Danger je veliko bolj oranžna in sploh ne izgleda rdeče v primerjavi s Poppy Love. Poppy Love ima enak oranžen podton, vendar izgleda tudi bolj hladno kot Lady Danger.

Tudi za Lava Love nisem našla enakega odtenka. Je precej podoben Avon Ultra Colour Indulgence odtenku Red Tulip. Podobna sta si tudi v samem finišu in teksturi. Red Tulip je sicer temnejši odtenek in ima bolj jagodičast roza podton, med tem ko je Lava Love bolj živ odtenek in rahlo svetlejši roza.

Berry Berry Nice je edini odtenek za katerega sem našla več kot en podoben odtenek. Avon 3D Plumping šminka v odtenku Hot Pants je svetlejša in bolj živa različica izmed teh roza odtenkov. Avon True Colour Perfectly Matte šminka v odtenku Ravishing Rose je najbolj podobna Berry Berry Nice. Ker je mat, je bolj pigmentirana. Odtenek je podoben, čeprav je Ravishing Rose rahlo bolj živ odtenek. Imata pa podoben podton. Mogoče je tudi rahlo bolj roza. Avon True Colour Perfectly Matte šminka v odtenku Ruby Kiss je prav tako podoben odtenek. Je malo bolj živ in malo bolj topel roza podton.

Scarlet Siren je podoben Avon Ultra Colour Lip Crayon v odtenku Red Haute. Oba odtenka imata rjavkasto rdeč podton. Red Haute je bolj prosojen in svetlejši. Je tudi rahlo bolj rdeč in ni tako zelo rjav kot Scarlet Siren.

Nimam nobenega odtenka, ki bi bil enak kot Perfect Red. Sem ga pa želela primerjati z eno mojih najljubših rdečih odtenkov in sicer NYX Matte šminko v odtenku Alabama. Imata podoben podton, vendar je Perfect Red za odtenek ali dva temnejši. Alabama izgleda skoraj bolj rjavo kot rdeče.

V svoji zbirki nimam nobenega odtenka, ki bi bil podoben Cherry Jubilee. Vsi drugi odtenki so ali preveč vijolični, ali preveč rjavi. Ta je res unikatna mešanica temno rdeče z malo vijolične in rjave.

Primerjala sem tudi svoje rdeče lake. Tangfastic je podoben Avon Gel Shine laku v odtenku Fire Cracker. Fire Cracker je bolj oranžen. Maybelline Colorama v odtenku 150 je prav tako podoben, ampak je malo preveč rdeč.

Real Red je podoben Avon Gel Shine laku v odtenku Roses Are Red. Pogledati morate zelo blizu, da sploh opazite razliko. Roses Are Red je za pol odtenka temnejši in rahlo bolj živo rdeč.

Royal Red izgleda podoben Maybelline Colorama laku v odtenku 15, ampak 15 je malo bolj rjavkast.

Ruby Slipper me je takoj spomnil na Avon Magic Effects Mineral Crush laku v odtenku Ruby. Ruby ima več bleščic, ki so zlate namesto srebrne. Je tudi bolj roza in ima sand finiš.

Všeč mi je, da je Avon ponudil dokaj širok nabor rdečih odtenkov, ki so primerni za svetle polti, prav tako pa za temne. Formula je zagotovo zmagovalna. Sploh za vse tiste, ki imate probleme s suhimi ustnicami in si želite šmink, ki so izredno udobne za nošenje. Pri nanašanju se morate rahlo bolj potruditi, vendar je končen efekt čudovit. Če se bojite rdečih sijočih odtenkov, jih lahko nosite kot rahel madež. Če si želite bolj mat finiša, lahko sijaj odstranite z robčkom in nanesete več tankih slojev. V primeru, da iščete nekaj zelo prekrivnega in obstojnega, vam odvetujem nakup le teh.

Tudi rdeči laki so mi všeš. Formula se lepo nanaša, so dovolj pigmentirani, obstojni in Avon ponuja lep nabor rdečih odtenkov. Rdeč lak je tako klasična zadeva, da z njo ne morete zgrešiti.

Čudovite odtenke rdečih lahkov si lahko ogledate tudi na Metkinem blogu.
