Beauty UK Baked blush - no.3 Halo

February 18, 2016


I don't really know when all the hype for contouring and highlighting started but I do know that I got into it a few years ago when I decided, after watching some makeup tutorials on Youtube, that I'm not glowy enough and that I don't have enough shadows on my face. Haha no, but let's be serious now, I wondered what is it all about and what is everyone on Youtube talking about.
I grabbed matte brown eyeshadow (that much I knew - that it has to be matte), completely wrong brush, dragged a line on my cheeks and alongside my nose and realized I look muddy. As much as I tried to blend out those lines, it never looked what it was supposed to look like - natural. I didn't give up, I practiced, tried out different brushed, eyeshadows, watched more tutorials, learned about face shapes and features. Even to this day, I'm not perfect in contouring and highlighting, I can't make myself to look like Lana Del Rey (see how Mykie does that), I think that you can always be better, but I learned how not to look like I have random brown and sparkly stripes on my face, how to accentuate what I want and also how to hide what I want to hide on my face.
Just to be clear, in regular makeup day (which is 90% of the time I put on makeup), I don't go through all this contour & highlight process. If you do it on everyday basis, do you and good for you, but I'm just too lazy for that.

Today we are going to talk about highlighters. I like the pink and gold toned ones and I usually buy something like that.
My favorite pink cold toned highlighter is affordable but great one - Beauty UK Baked blush in the shade no. 3 Halo
They call it a blush, but I wouldn't say it is really a blush because it doesn't have that much of a color payoff and has a lot of shimmer. Not glitter, just to be clear, but leaves a pretty intense glow on the skin.

Ne znam kada je počela zaluđenost konturiranjem, sjenčanjem, highlightanjem lica itd., ali mene je uhvatilo prije nekoliko godina kada sam nakon gledanja nekoliko videa na Youtube-u zaključila da se ne sjajim dovoljno i nemam dovoljno sjena po licu. Hahaha ne, ali ozbiljno sad, zanimalo me u čemu je fora i o čemu sve youtuberice pričaju. 
Uzela sam mat smeđe sjenilo (toliko sam znala - da mora biti mat), potpuno krivi pretanak kist, povukla crte na obrazima i nosu te skužila da izgledam prljavo i da, koliko god ja te crte blendala, ne izgleda onako kako bi trebalo - prirodno. Svejedno nisam odustala, vježbala sam, mijenjala kistove, sjenila, gledala još više videa, učila o crtama lica. Ni danas ne znam savršeno konturirati i highlightati (koji je hrvatski izraz za ovo?) lice, ne mogu od sebe napraviti da izgledam kao Lana Del Rey (vidi kako to Mykie radi), smatram da uvijek ima mjesta za napredak, ali sam naučila kako ne izgledati kao da imam random smeđe i sjajne crte po licu, kako istaknuti ono što želim, a također i sakriti ono što želim sakriti na licu. 
Da se razumijemo, u "običnom" šminkanju (a ono je najčešće), ne prolazim cijeli ovaj contour & highlight proces. Ako ti to radiš na dvenoj bazi, samo naprijed i svaka ti čast, meni se jednostavno neda. #lijenost

Na stranu konturiranje, danas pričamo o highlighterima. Volim one rozih i zlatnih tonova i njih najčešće i kupujem.
Najdraži highligter rozih, hladnih tonova trenutno mi je jedan pristupačan, jeftin, a dobar - Beauty UK Baked blush u nijansi no. 3 Halo
Nazivaju ga rumenilom, ali osobno ga ne bih nikako svrstala pod tu kategoriju jer ne daje previše boje, a sadrži dosta shimmera. Ne šljokica, da se razumijemo, nego ostavlja onako lijepi sjajni trag na koži.

Beauty UK Baked blush - no. 3 Halo

It comes in a cardboard box with a magnet and to be honest, this isn't one of the best quality packaging out there. Inside you have a mirror, and the blush itself is baked and looks like a little planet.
The products like this are a bit harder to pick up with the brush because they are baked, so you can use it dry, or if you want intense glow - you can use it wet. I like the way it looks when applied with regular dry brush. The wet application gives too much of a glow for my personal taste. It could be great for strobing though, or if you want to blind everyone around you.

Dolazi u kartonskoj kutijici s magnetnim zatvaranjem, koja, da budemo iskreni, nije baš kvalitetna i na njoj će se brzo primijetiti tragovi korištenja. Unutra je ogledalo, a samo "rumenilo" je baked, odnosno pečeno i izgleda kao mali planet. 
Ovakve proizvode je malo teže pokupiti kistom, a činjenica da je pečeno, znači da ga možeš koristiti suhoga, ili ako želiš intenzivniju boju i sjaj, možeš ga nanijeti mokrim kistom. Meni se više sviđa kako izgleda naneseno suho, dok mislim da je mokro ipak malo previše sjaja. Mogao bi biti dobar za strobing ili ako želiš da ti koža blješti toliko da zaslijepiš sve oko sebe.

It has very soft texture, you almost don't feel it under your fingers. It does have a lot of fallout, and the paper box around it becomes dirty very quickly. If you drop it, you can say goodby. It is that fragile. It can be fixed with rubbing alcohol but then it won't look like a planet. Nevertheless, you will still be able to use it.

It is also very pigmented, leaves a subtle glow on the skin but you can add more for more intense glow. You can see on the photo above that it contains a lot of different colors - darker and lighter, pink and even brown. When you mix it all together, you get pretty cool effect. The swatch below is made in one coat and you can see that it has some color in it.

This highlighters lasting power is pretty decent and depends on the quality of the base and foundation underneath it and on the setting spray.

Što se tiče teksture, veoma je mekan, gotovo da se i ne osjeti pod prstima. Rasipa se po kutijici što je pogotovo primjetno jer je ona crna i brzo počne izgledati prljavo, a ako ga slučajno ispustiš iz ruku, možeš se pozdraviti s njim. Toliko je lomljiv. Može se popraviti alkoholom, ali onda ove boje koje ga čine da izgleda kao planet u malom, ne dolaze do izražaja. Svejedno, ne utječu na korištenje.

Pigmentacija je dobra, na licu ostavlja diskretan, lagani sjaj koji se može nadograđivati. Vidiš na slici iznad da sadrži čestice različitih boja, tamnijih i svijetlijih rozih, pa čak i smeđih. Kad se to sve pomiješa, nije obični rozi highlighter, nego daje malo zanimljiviji efekt. Na slici ispod je napravljen swatch u jednom nanosu te je vidljivo da ostavlja i mrvicu boje.

Trajnost je dobra, izdrži cijeli dan na licu, ali ovisi i o bazi koja je ispod, odnosno puderu, primeru i svemu ostalom, kao i eventualnom setting spreju.





Beauty UK Baked blushes collection has 2 shimmer shades (this no. 3 Halo and a bronzer which I will review later on), and 2 matte versions which I have tried and they are good, but I don't like the shades.

I think you've relized now that I find a few ways to use one product, just as I did with this highlighter.  It looks great as an eyeshadow. I often use it on the browbone and in the inner tearduckt but even all over the lid (if I want to shine bright that day :)) and I put some transition colour in the crease. Simple and quick look to do when you are in a rush. Also it looks good in monochrome looks, when you use one colour on the whole face. 

Ever since I bought this product, I've been using it all the time. The shade is pretty and I like the fact that you can use it for a subtle glow and for "in your face" shine on the cheeks.

Linija Beauty UK Baked rumenila u Hrvatskoj dolazi u dva shimmer oblika (ovaj no. 3 Halo te bronzer o kojemu ću pisati drugom prilikom), i dva mat rumenila koja sam isprobala i također su dobra, ali mi se nijanse ne sviđaju.

Mislim da si do sada shvatila da svim proizvodima nađem još nekakvu upotrebu, pa tako ovaj highligter predivno izgleda i kao sjenilo na očima. Često ga, osim što ga stavljam ispod luka obrve i unutarnjeg kuta oka, stavljam i preko cijelog kapka (ako taj dan želim posebno blještati :)), te samo pregib osjenčam malo tamnijim sjenilom. Jednostavan, a brz look za kad si u žurbi. Isto tako, lijepo mi izgleda kada je makeup monochrome, odnosno kad se iste boja korista svuda na licu

Odkako sam kupila ovaj proizvod, koristim ga stalno i brzo je zamijenio sve moje ostale highlightere jer, osim što je nijansa lijepa, možeš ga nanijeti malo za onaj suptilni sjaj, ali i nadograditi za onaj "in your face" izgled.



Beauty UK Baked rumenila možeš pronaći u Kozmu po cijeni od oko 30,00 kn za 4,4 g proizvoda.
