Collistar Products Review
Back in January a lovely blogger Agnes Krown hosted a giveaway since it was her birthday. I usually don’t enter giveaways just because I’m too lazy to fill in all the information. But since Agnes is from Slovenia (so am I), I thought it would be great to support a fellow Slovenian blogger. And I actually won in the giveaway! I still remember how I read an email from Agnes at 5 a.m. and I shouted to my mother that I won (she was sleeping at that time, so I woke her up, that’s how excited I was).
I then received a package of three Collistar products- compact powder, pencil for smokey eyes and eye shadow. In the next few days some people on Ask.fm asked me to write a review about these products and I was planning to write it ever since then.
But I’m neither good at writing reviews nor I enjoy writing them in particularly. This mostly applies to writing reviews about any beauty products, just because most of the time I don’t even wear any makeup. So I felt like I shouldn’t be reviewing any beauty products when there are so many bloggers who enjoy buying, applying different products and experimenting with them.
However, I decided to present you Collistar products from my point of view, because I can say that in recent months I have learned a few things about makeup.
Silk Effect Eye Shadow
At the time I got this eyeshadow I was actually looking for any shade of brown eyeshadow since I was only using pink and purple ones (I’m so boring and predictable, I know!). So when I opened a package this is probably the product I was most excited to try on. This eyeshadow comes in a shade 45 Cacao. It’s a bit vibrant and I had to step out of my comfort zone to wear it, but it’s so easy to combine with other shades of eyeshadows and I just love it. It’s also incredibly silky and blends effortlessly, which is perfect for me. I can say that this Collistar’s Eye Shadow is probably one of my favourite eyeshadows.
Compact Powder Extra Light
I never wear powder- not because I’d have a perfect skin, but because I don’t feel comfortable wearing it. And if any makeup makes me feel uncomfortable I don’t wear it- simple as that. But I decided to give this powder a try, just because I can’t write a review about a product I don’t even try. After the first impressions I must say that I am impressed. It’s great that I got an extra light powder, as I’m quite pale and this one comes in a shade 2 Ambra. It really covers acne and other irregularities. I’m not exactly an expert when it comes to powders, but this one is the best one I’ve ever tried.
Smoky Eyes Professional Pencil
I’m the worst at doing smokey eyes- I’ve tried many times and I’ve completely failed. So I’ve tried this pencil, but let’s just say I didn’t get a result I was aiming for (but I won’t give up, I’ll have to succeed one day, right?). This pencil comes in a shade 302 Marrone and it goes really nicely with my eye colour. It gives an intense colour and it’s perfect for a night out. You can also use it as a classic kohl pencil, which is probably how I’m going to use it.
In overall I’m quite pleased with all three products- they made me experiment a bit, which is quite an accomplishment for me! I’m also planning to buy Collistar’s lip gloss, their shades are just stunning. I’m extremely thankful to Agnes who hosted this amazing giveaway, so if you like beauty, fashion and anything in between you should definitely check her blog here!
