Fleur de Sante Products Review

Just to let you know, today's post will look a little bit different. I've recently got sent some products for review purposes by the lovely Slovenian Fleur de Sante team, so this review will be written in two languages - English and Slovene. I haven't written any reviews in the Slovene language before, because it is easier for me to write in English (even though my first language is Slovene), so I hope I won't make the mess out of my Slovene translations. Some words that have to do with make-up are pretty much non-existent in our language, which makes the job even more challenging. :D

No, če ste prebrali prejšnji odstavek, potem že veste, da bo današnja objava malo drugačna. Pred parimi tedni sem od slovenske ekipe Fleur de Sante dobila nekaj izdelkov v zameno za ocene na mojem blogu, tako da bodo te ocene napisane v dveh jezikih - angleščini in slovenščini. To je moja prva objava napisana v slovenščini in resnično upam, da moj 'prevod' ne bo katastrofalen. Čeprav je slovenščina moj materni jezik, mi je po pravici povedano veliko lažje pisati v angleščini. Predvsem ko pride do ocen dekorativne kozmetike, saj ne poznam prav veliko slovenskih izrazov povezanih z ličili (večina jih sploh nima prevoda), zato bo kakšna angleška beseda verjetno vseeno uporabljena tudi v slovenskih odstavkih. No, pa pojdimo k ocenam.


The first product that I needed to try out right away, is this nail polish in the shade 'Shimmering Pink'. The application of this nail polish was great and it also lasted quite a few days on my nails, but as you can see, it is not opaque even after applying three coats. Having said that, this is quite a usual occurance when it comes to shimmery nail polishes with a pearly finish. To be totally honest, I prefer opaque nail polishes, so this one will probably not end up on my nails in the future, but I've already found him an adoptive parent. My mother loves this kind of nail polishes and has already stole it from me. 

Prvi izdelek, ki sem ga preizkusila, je lak v odtenku 'Shimmering Pink'. Kupite ga lahko tukaj za 5,99€. Nanos in obstojnost laka sta zelo dobra, prekrivnost pa malo manj. Sama sem nanesla tri plasti, vendar je bil lak kljub temu še malo prosojen. To je drugače kar pogosta zadeva pri lakih z bisernim odtenkom. Sama imam raje močno prekrivne lake, tako da dvomim, da se bo tale lakec še kdaj znašel na mojih nohtih. To pa seveda še ne pomeni, da bo lak počival v kakšnem predalu. Moja mami, ki obožuje ravno takšne vrste lakov, si ga je namreč že z velikim veseljem prisvojila.


The next product is the lipstick in the shade 'Peach Perfection'. When I first saw it, I wasn't expecting it to be great, but it pleasantly surprised me. The shade is very pretty, it goes on smoothly, it has great coverage and stays on for a few hours. I'm not sure if you can see from the photo, but this peachy shade also has a bit of subtle silver shimmer. The lipstick is not particularly moisturizing or creamy, but it doesn't dehydrate my lips. 

Naslednji izdelek je šminka v odtenku 'Peach Perfection', ki jo lahko dobite za 7,99€. Ko sem jo prvič videla, sem imela občutek, da mi ne bo všeč, vendar me je pozitivno presenetila. Nanaša se zelo lepo in enakomerno, ima dobro prekrivnost ter nekajurno obstojnost. Barva je marelična, vsebuje pa tudi nekaj malih srebrnih bleščic. Šminka ni prav posebno vlažilna ali kremasta, vendar kljub temu ne izsuši mojih ustnic. Na spodnjih slikicah lahko vidite moj 'swatch' na roki in kako se vidi na mojih ustnicah. 




The only product from the bunch that I'm not really fond of is the 'Summer Breeze' eyeshadow palette. As you can see from the photo below, the eyeshadows are not very pigmented and feel quite chalky. Considering that the eye shadow collection contains very light matte shades and is inexpensive, I can't say that I expected more from it. We all know that even the big, expensive brands usually have trouble creating good matte shades. Having said that, I did see some swatches of other Fleur de Sante eyeshadows on other girls' blogs, and they seem to have much better pigmentation.  

Edini izdelek iz paketka ki mi ni ravno všeč, je paletka senčil 'Summer Breeze'. Kot lahko vidite na spodnji fotki, senčila niso dobro pigmentirana in se zdijo malo 'kredasta'. Glede na to, da paletka za 6,99€ vsebuje zelo svetle mat odtenke, me to niti ne preseneča, saj imajo po mojih izkušnjah tudi znane in dražje znamke probleme z ustvarjanjem zelo pigmentiranih mat senčil. Moram pa povedati, da sem na blogih od drugih punc, ki so prav tako testirale Fleur de Sante izdelke, videla nekaj njihovih drugih senčk, ki so zgledale veliko bolj pigmentirane. 



The last product that I got is their anti-ageing make-up primer. I have to say that this seems to be a very good primer and can be compared to Benefit's Porefessional, which I also own. It is clear and has to be applied like a cream, all over the face, before you begin putting on your foundation. Primer makes your skin silky smooth and seals the imperfections, which makes the foundation applitcation a lot easier. Primers are also supposed to make your foundation last longer and prevent it from sliding off of your face if you have oily skin, but I can't really comment on that, as my skin is dry and  my foundation tends to stay on all day long even without a primer. 

Zadnji izdelek, ki so mi ga poslali v oceno, je njihov primer oziroma gladka podlaga za make-up (cena 9,99€). Meni se zdi zelo dober in bi ga z lahkoto primerjala s primerjem Benefit Porefessional, ki ga tudi imam doma. Primer je prozorne barve in se nanaša kot krema. Se pravi čez cel obraz, preden začnemo nanašati puder. Ta izdelek zgladi kožo in jo naredi svilnato mehko, kar olajša nanos pudra. Primerji naj bi tudi podaljšali obstojnost pudra in preprečili, da puder čez dan zdrsi s kože, kar se včasih zgodi pri mastni koži, vendar sama ne morem potrditi, če ta primer res podaljša obstojnost. Moja koža je namreč suha, zato ponavadi že tako ali tako nimam težav z obstojnostjo samega pudra oziroma podlage. 


As you can see, I also found  a perfume sample that was hiding inside a catalogue, so I decided to mention it as well. Esprit de Fleur eau de toilette smells perfect for summer! From what I can smell, it is a citrus based perfume and smells really fresh. My mother went totally mental when she smelled it because she's obsessed with this scent - her favorite shower gel is L'Occitane's Citrus Verbena.

Kot vidite, sem med poslanimi stvarmi odkrila tudi vzorček parfuma, ki se je skrival v katalogu. Esprit de Fleur toaletna voda diši zelo sveže, po citrusih, in se mi zdi super za poletje. Moja mami je bila nad vzorčkom čisto navdušena, saj je obsedena z vonjem citrusov - njen najljubši gel za prhanje je Citronka s citrusi od L'Occitana. Parfum lahko v polni velikosti dobite tukaj. Trenutno je znižan iz 17,49€ na 12,99€ za 50 ml.

  3. Meni primer ni prav nič podaljšal obstojnosti pudra ali BB kreme, tako da ga dejansko sploh ne potrebujem. Šminka izgleda odlično na tebi. :)
