Review BornPretty lip palette

Hello there, lovely ladies.

Up until a while ago, I used to own about 20 lip glosses, a few lipsticks and lip stains, and that was it. That changed a few months ago, when I started buying a lot of lipsticks and I kinda stopped using lipglosses. I started thinking about purchasing a lip palette... And then BornPretty decided to send me a product to review and I saw this one... Instant love, I tell you! So I thought I'd share my opinions with you while enjoying a nice cup of tea and deciding what movie to watch...
Pana acum ceva vreme, aveam vreo 20 de gloss'uri, cateva rujuri si lip stain'uri, si cam atat. Treaba s'a schimbat acum cateva luni, cand am inceput sa imi cumpar multe rujuri si am cam incetat sa folosesc gloss'uri. Incepusem sa ma gandesc sa imi achizitionez o paleta pentru buze... Si apoi BornPretty au decis sa imi trimita un produs pentru review si am vazut'o pe aceasta... Dragoste instanta, va spun! Asa ca m'am gandit sa imi impartasesc parerile cu voi in timp ce savurez o cana delicioasa de ceai si ma hotarasc la ce film sa ma uit...

Let's start from the outside and talk about the packaging...
Sa incepem cu exteriorul si sa vorbim despre ambalaj...

I really like the outside of the packaging, it's a very pretty leather imitation, but on the inside it's just some fragile plastic... At the beginning, I was afraid of even opening it.
Imi place mult exteriorul ambalajului, e o imitatie draguta de piele, dar pe interior e doar un plastic fragil... La inceput mi'a fost frica si sa o deschid.


All of the lipsticks/glosses have a fabulous finish, they're like almost matte lipsticks, with just a tiny hint of shine to them. They are pigmented enough and buildable, but I don't like the fact that some of them don't look at all like in the pan when applied to the lips. For example, the fifth colour from the top row, when I apply it on lips, is actually a dark fuchsia. Luckily though, the shade looks good on me and I probably wouldn't have gone for such a shade other than through a fortunate accident.
Toate rujurile/gloss'urile au un finish fabulos, sunt ca niste rujuri aproape mate, cu o urma mica de luciu. Sunt destul de pigmentate si buildable, dar nu imi place faptul ca unele dintre ele nu arata deloc ca in ambalaj cand sunt aplicate pe buze. De exemplu, a cincea culoare de pe primul rand, cand o aplic pe buze, e de fapt un fuchsia inchis. Totusi, din fericire, nuanta arata bine pe mine si probabil nu as fi ales'o decat printr'un accident fericit.


I love the first shade also, even though at first I was literally scared by it! It turned out to be an amazing lip balm that lightens my lips colour. I am obsessed with getting the perfect nude lips without lipstick (I can't find a perfect shade, perhaps you have some suggestions for me?!), I don't want the normal "my lips but better" effect, I want my lips, but lighter! And the tiny little light green thingy managed to do that while also hydrating my lips, so I have no idea what I'm going to do when it's over.
Iubesc si prima nuanta, desi la inceput eram, la propriu, speriata de ea! S'a dovedit a fi un balsam de buze uimitor care imi deschide culoarea buzelor. Sunt obsedata sa am buzele nude perfecte fara ruj (nu reusesc sa gasesc o nuanta perfecta, poate aveti vreo sugestie pentru mine?!), nu vreau traditionalul efect de "buzele mele, dar mai bine", eu vreau buzele mele, dar mai deschise la culoare! Si acea chestiuta micuta verde deschis a reusit sa faca asta in timp ce imi hidrata buzele, asa ca nu stiu ce o sa ma fac cand se va termina.

The white and the black aren't very pigmented unfortunately, but I do like the fact that they have a pretty glossy finish and I have a feeling that they would look amazing on top of an pencil liner, for a fantasy-like makeup.
Albul si negrul nu prea sunt pigmentate, din pacate, dar imi place faptul ca au un finish lucios si am senzatia ca vor arata uimitor peste un creion, pentru un machiaj fantezie.

I also like the fact that only two colours are sparkly (first one from the right, top row, and the blue next to the white) as I'm not a fan of shimmery/sparkly lips and I love how long lasting and transfer resistant most colours are.
Imi place de asemenea faptul ca doar doua culori au sclipici (prima din dreapta de pe primul rand si albastrul de langa alb) deoarece nu imi plac buzele sidefate/sclipicioase si ador faptul ca majoritatea culorilor sunt foarte rezistente, chiar si la transfer.

All in all, even though this palette has some downsides, I don't regret choosing it, and I will use most of its colours until they're finished. I think it is a very good option if you don't want to carry a ton of lipsticks with you, especially if you have a thing for pinks.
Per total, desi are unele aspecte negative, nu regret ca am ales paleta aceasta, si voi folosi majoritatea culorilor pana le termin. Cred ca este o varianta foarte buna daca nu vreti sa carati o tona de rujuri dupa voi, mai ales daca aveti o pasiune pentru rozuri.
