AURA Cosmetics Geisha Maiko blush  //  AURA Cosmetics Geisha gel eyeliner  //  AURA Cosmetics Geisha translucent pressed powder


Još odmalena volim istočnu Aziju, kulturu i tradiciju tih divnih dalekih zemalja, a film "Memoari jedne gejše" sam pogledala sigurno par desetina puta, i to svaki put sa podjednakim entuzijazmom kao da ga nikad pre nisam gledala. Čim ovo pročitate biće vam i više nego jasno zašto sam jednostavno morala da priuštim sebi neke od proizvoda iz Geisha kolekcije srpskog brenda AURA Cosmetics.
Ova kolekcija sastoji se od ukupno osam proizvoda: ajlajnera u gelu uz koji se dobija i četkica za nanošenje, kamenog pudera za matiranje, dva seta veštačkih trepavica (pod imenom Maiko 15 i Mononoke 16), dva tečna karmina sa mat završnicom (nijanse Maiko i Mononoke), kao i dva rumenila (takođe nijanse Maiko i Mononoke). Pošto sam sasvim zadovoljna svojim prirodnim trepavicama i smatram da mi je dovoljno da ih samo naglasim maskarom, veštačke trepavice nisam ni pomišljala da kupim, kao ni mat karmine jer mi zdrav razum govori da ih imam sasvim dovoljno, bar za sada. Moj konačan odabir sveo se na rumenilo u nijansi Maiko, ajlajner u gelu i puder za matiranje jer sam najviše želela da ih isprobam, a sada mogu i da podelim svoje utiske.


1. AURA Cosmetics Geisha Maiko rumenilo: rumenila iz ove kolekcije dolaze u lepom, okruglom belom pakovanju sa crtežom lotosa koji neodoljivo podseća na tradicionalnu japansku umetnost. Dok je rumenilo Mononoke u nežnijim tonovima breskve sa blagom svetlucavom završnicom, Maiko je kombinacija intenzivnih nijansi ružičaste i ljubičaste i već na prvi pogled me asocira na predivno trešnjino drveće i automatski vodi moje misli pravo u Japan. Ako vam se čini na osnovu fotografija da je rumenilo intenzivno, uopšte ne grešite - pigmentacija je sumanuta. Ja sam inače obazriva u doziranju rumenila i bronzera jer naprosto mrzim kada ih nanesem i izgledam kao da me je neko tukao kaišem po obrazima, i stoga koristim dve četkice za nanošenje rumenila - onom manjom nanesem rumenilo ili bronzer, dok veću koristim da stopim naneseni proizvod sa ostatkom šminke i tada je prelaz suptilan i prirodan. Mislim da će vam koristiti moj savet za ovakvo rumenilo zbog njegove pigmentacije - dovoljno je da samo blago dotaknete rumenilo četkicom, iznenadićete se intenzitetom boje koja će se preneti na obraz. Za cenu od 999 dinara dobija se 10,5 g proizvoda, a s obzirom na to da su vam dovoljne male količine u toku šminkanja sigurna sam da će vas dugo služiti ako se odlučite na to da ga kupite. Uzimajući pigmentaciju u obzir može poslužiti i kao senka za oči, zašto se ne poigrati s vremena na vreme?


2. AURA Cosmetics Geisha prozirni kameni puder za matiranje kože lica: kada sam otkrila ovaj proizvod, uzvikivala sam EUREKA! kao Arhimed kad je otkrio silu potiska. Lepo, pljosnato belo pakovanje sa crtežom grane trešnjinog drveta je sjajno jer je lako smestiti ga u bilo koju tašnu tako da ga u bilo kom trenutku možete iskoristiti ako je neophodno prepraviti šminku. Iako izgleda belo kao brašno ili kreda, ono uopšte ne menja nijansu prethodno nanetog tečnog pudera, već samo uklanja njegov neželjeni sjaj i čini ga postojanijim na licu. Pakovanje sadrži 9g proizvoda i može se kupiti po ceni od 739 dinara (ako se dobro sećam tačne cene).


3. AURA Cosmetics Geisha ajlajner u gelu: "Prava gejša može da zaustavi muškarca samo jednim pogledom." je citat iz filma "Memoari jedne gejše" koji nikada neću moći da zaboravim. Nikada nisam koristila ajlajner u gelu, i zato sam se najviše radovala tome da kupim upravo ovaj i isprobam ga jer sam do sada koristila pretežno tečne koji me nekad nerviraju jer mi slepe trepavice i otežavaju nanošenje maskare. Na svu sreću, s ovim ajlajnerom nemam tih problema, ali nažalost, nisam ni oduševljena kao što sam se nadala da ću biti. Sam ajlajner je malo suvlji nego što sam očekivala i neophodno je protrljati četkicu više puta da bi mogao da se nanese, a i pored toga pigmentacija mu nije jaka crna kao kod tečnih ajlajnera, već više izgleda tamnosivo, ili onako kako izgledaju crne farmerke nakon nekoliko pranja i ispere se boja. Ne znam da li je to do toga što prvi put koristim ovakav ajlajner pa mi još uvek nedostaje veštine, ali linije mi nisu tako oštre i precizne kada pokušavam da napravim takozvano "krilo" ili "rep" tako da ću se poslužiti nekim trikom da to korigujem i doteram što je više moguće. Četkica koja se dobija uz njega je tanka i precizna i njome je relativno lako naneti finu i suptilnu liniju direktno uz trepavice, ali ponavljam da je meni lično malo teže da oblikujem onu elegantnu završnicu na spoljašnjem uglu oka. Pakovanje je dizajnirano apsolutno savršeno, i u njemu se dobija 4ml proizvoda za 999 dinara.


Ako izuzmemo pojedine nedostatke koje, po mom mišljenju, ima ajlajner u odnosu na moja početna očekivanja, mogu reći da je ova kolekcija zaista kvalitetna i da vredi priuštiti poneki proizvod iz nje ukoliko imate tu želju. Potrudila sam se da iskreno kažem šta mislim o svakom proizvodu, ali ako imate pitanja rado ću odgovoriti na njih, slobodno ih ostavite u komentarima. :*


_____________________________________________________________________________________________


I love East Asia since I was little, the culture and tradition of the countries in that part of the world, and I've probably watched "Memoirs of a geisha" at least a dozen times, and I have the same enthusiasm as the first time whenever I see it on TV. As soon as you read this you will realize why I just had to buy some products from the Geisha collection of the Serbian make up brand AURA Cosmetics. Although I think this brand is not available outside of Serbia (pardon me if I'm wrong), I'd still like to introduce you to something new.
This collection includes eight products in total: a gel eyeliner with a brush to apply it with, a translucent pressed mattifying powder, two sets of false eyelashes (named Maiko 15 and Mononoke 16), two liquid lipsticks with a matte finish (shades Maiko and Mononoke), as well as two blushes (also shades Maiko and Mononoke). Since I'm entirely OK with my natural eyelashes and I think it's enough for me to apply some mascara on them, I didn't even consider buying the false eyelashes, or even their matte lipsticks because common sense tells me I have enough of those, at least for now. My final pick was narrowed down to the Maiko blush, the gel eyeliner and the mattifying powder because I wanted to try them out the most, and now I can share my impressions with you.


1. AURA Cosmetics Geisha Maiko blush: blushes in this collection come in a pretty, round white packing with a lotus drawing that reminds one of traditional Japanese art. The blush Mononoke is a combo of tender peachy tones with a discreet shimmery finish, and Maiko is a combo of intensive pink and purple shades, and even at first glance it reminds me of beautiful sakura trees and automatically transports me straight to Japan. If you think that this blush is intensive based on these photos, you are not wrong at all - the pigmentation is insane. I am even normally cautious with dosing blushes or bronzers because I just hate it when I apply them and end up looking like someone hit my cheeks with a belt, and therefore I use two blush applying brushes - I use the smaller one to apply the blush or bronzer, and the bigger one to blend it with the rest of my make up, which makes the transition look subtle and natural. I think you could use my advice when it comes to this, or any similar blush because of its pigmentation - it will be enough for you to just gently touch it with the brush, you'll be surprised by the intensity of the color applied to your cheeks. For around 9 or 9,5 euros you get 10,5g of the product, and considering that you only need a small amout of it in your daily make up routine I'm sure you'll be using it for a long time. Also, considering the intensity of the colors you can even use it as an eyeshadow set, why wouldn't you play with it from time to time?


2. AURA Cosmetics Geisha translucent mattifying pressed powder: when I discovered this product, I was screaming EUREKA! just like Archimedes when he discovered upthrust. A lovely, flat white packing with the drawing of a sakura tree branch is great because you can easily place it in any bag and use it to fix your makeup whenever needed. Although it looks like flour or a chalk because it's white, it doesn't alter the color of the powder you applied previously, it only takes away the unwanted shine and makes it last longer on your face. The packing contains 9g of the product and you can buy it for around 7 euros. 


3. AURA Cosmetics Geisha gel eyeliner: "A true geisha can stop a man in his tracks with only one look." is a quote from "Memoirs of a geisha" which I will not forget for as long as I live. I've never used a gel eyeliner before, so I was looking forward to buying this and trying it out because I've only used the liquid ones so far, which sometimes annoyed me because they can stick my eyelashes together and make it hard for me to apply mascara on them. Thankfully, I have no such issues with this eyeliner, but sadly I am not as pleased by it as I hoped I'd be. The eyeliner itself is a little dry and you have to really rub the brush against it to pick up and apply some of it, and even so the pigmentation is not the intensive black as with liquid eyeliners, it looks more like dark grey or when you wash your black jeans and the color gets rinsed. I don't know if it's because I'm using this type of eyeliner for the first time in my life and I still lack some skill, but my lines are not as sharp and precise when I try to create the "wing" or "tail" so I'll use some tricks to make it work for me somehow. The brush that comes with it is thin and precise and it's relatively easy to apply a subtle line directly against the eyelashes, but I repeat that I'm personally having difficulties to form that elegant finish in the exterior corner of the eye. The packing is designed perfectly and you get 4ml of the product for around 9 or 9,5 euros.



If we exclude some improvements the eyeliner could use, if we consider my original expectations, I can say that this collection has great quality and it's OK to invest into some of these products if you wish to try them out. I tried to say exactly what I mean about every product, but if you have any other questions I'll gladly answer all of them, feel free to leave them in the comments. :*

  1. Jelena draga, odlican post. Pravo uzivanje mi je bilo dok sam citala. Ja Sam inace jako veliki ljubitelj sminke tako da je ovaj post bio bas za Mene. Nissan ljubitelj rumenila ali su me ova odusevila odusevila, sto zbog boje, to zbog svoje strukture. Spider u kamenu je best sto ja jako volume I koristila Tako da me je ovaj bas kupio I smatram da bih ga trebala imati za sebe. Takodje, svakodnevno koristim ajlajner I Mislim da bi mi ovaj dobrodosao. Sve u sve, zaista odlican post.
