Quick review: Balea Vital Eye Roll-on

Hello sweethearts. Today I'm going to do a quick review of a product I truly love. You've seen in a recent post that I keep it in my bag all the time, and I'm sure you're curious what makes it wonderful enough for it to qualify in the never-to-part-of products.
Buna dragelor. Astazi o sa fac un review rapid unui produs pe care il iubesc cu adevarat. Ati vazut intr'o postare recenta ca il tin in geanta tot timpul, si sunt sigura ca sunteti curioase ce il face atat de minunat incat sa se califice in categoria produselor de care nu ma despart niciodata.


The Balea Eye Roll-on (Balea Vital Augen Roll-on as it is called) offers an instant cooling effect around the eyes thanks to its metal ball (and I don't keep it in the fridge), unlike the Garnier one (that I've only tried twice or so, so don't take my word for it, but I wouldn't purchase it.) It hydrates the area quite well, and after a long-term use it reduces your dark-circles.
Roll-on'ul pentru ochi de la Balea (Balea Vital Augen Roll-on cum este numit) ofera un efect instantaneu de racorire a zonei din jurul ochilor datorita bilei de metal (si nu il tin in frigider), spre deosebire de cel Garnier (pe care l'am incercat doar de doua ori sau asa ceva, deci nu ma credeti pe cuvant, dar eu una nu l'as cumpara.) Hidrateaza zona destul de bine, si folosit pe termen lung reduce cearcanele.

For about 10-15 RON (I don't really remember the exact price), I say it is a very very good option to consider, especially for the summer when cooling is a must, in any form. I myself am going to repurchase it when I run out of it, and I suggest you give it a try when you get to any DM.
Pentru aproximativ 10-15 lei (nu imi amintesc pretul exact), eu spun ca este o optiune foarte foarte buna de luat in considerare, in special pentru vara, cand racorirea este necesara, in orice forma. Eu una il voi recumpara cand se va termina, si va recomand sa ii dati o sansa cand ajungeti intr'un DM.

TAG: What's in my bag today

Because I've shown you in this post a teaser, here's the actual post, with a bit of delay because I've had some problems with the camera.
Pentru ca vi'am aratat in aceasta postare un teaser, acum vine si postarea propriu-zisa, cu intarziere pentru ca am avut ceva probleme cu aparatul foto.

I've been asked on many occasions what's in my bag, many of my friends went through its contents countless times, so I decided to show you what I carry around, and ask you to do the same.
Am fost intrebata de multe ori ce se gaseste in geanta mea, multe dintre prietenele mele au umblat prin continuturile ei de nenumarate ori, asa ca m'am hotarat sa va arat si voua ce port dupa mine, si sa va rog sa faceti si voi la fel.


You've seen the Oasap bag in the previous post, but I'm showing it to you again, just because I love it and I keep looking at it all the time. I'm sure you do the same with your favorite bag. :))
Ati vazut geanta Oasap in postarea anterioara, dar vi'o arat din nou, doar pentru ca o iubesc si ma uit la ea tot timpul. Sunt sigura ca si voi faceti la fel cu geanta voastra preferata. :))

Now moving on to the contents...
Acum trecand mai departe la continut...


*Sephora mini makeup bag containing my Travalo Excel and an ELF lipstick, shade Charming
*Mini portfard Sephora continand Travalo'ul Excel si un ruj ELF, nuanta Charming

*Fluffy mini "pouch" containing the Sephora mini kabuki, a small container with some Rimmel Stay Matte face powder that I crushed, a Balea eye roll-on and a she-devil mirror
*Mini "pouch" fluffy continand mini kabuki'ul Sephora, un recipient micut cu niste pudra de fata Rimmel Stay Matte pe care am maruntit'o, un roll-on pentru ochi de la Balea si o oglinda cu o diavolita


*The case for that time of the month
*Cutiuta pentru acea perioada a luni


*Notebook & pen
*Carnetel & pix


*Wallet & online banking thingy
*Portofel & chestiuta pentru online banking


I also had with me today a body spray from Avon, the one with lemon, and a small bottle of oxygenated water for my tongue (you know I had it pierced from this post, which I'll soon translate in English too, and I'd rather be safe than sorry), but I forgot to take photos of them.
Am avut astazi cu mine si un spray de corp de la Avon, cel cu lamaie, si o mica sticluta cu apa oxigenata pentru limba (stiti ca mi'am pierce'at'o din aceasta postare, si prefer sa fiu precauta decat sa regret), dar am uitat sa le fac poze.

Vreau sa dau acest tag mai departe urmatoarelor bloggerite divine: Mada, Lestie, Cristina, Andreea A., Miu Miu, Laura, Ami, Andreea L., Ana Maria & Anca, pe care le rog sa imi lase aici un comentariu sa imi zica ce parere au, si daca accepta provocarea. Bineinteles, le invit ca ulterior sa lase linkul intr-un comentariu sa vedeti si voi ce au raspuns. :)
P.S. Nu uitati sa comentati toate. Si la aceasta postare comentariile va vor aduce beneficii, pe care le veti afla in postarea urmatoare. :)

Va urez o seara minunata de vara dragelor. :*

Teaser for tomorrow's post

This is just a small teaser for the post I have prepared for tomorrow, which is a very cute surprise.
Acesta este doar un mic teaser pentru postarea pe care am pregatit'o pentru maine, care este o surpriza draguta.


Superstar: my new Oasap bag

I just got this bag, but it was love at first touch. It's sooo cute that it has become my new favorite bag.
Tocmai am primit aceasta geanta, dar a fost dragoste la prima atingere. E atat de draguta incat a devenit noua mea geanta preferata.

I'm very curious, what is your favorite bag? And what do you think tomorrow's post will be about?
Sunt foarte curioasa, care este geanta voastra preferata? Si despre ce credeti ca va fi postarea de maine?

P.S. Every comment can (and will) bring you some benefits. :) So show me your love, and your imagination. :)
P.S. Fiecare comentariu poate sa va aduca ceva beneficii (si va va aduce). Asa ca aratati'mi niste afectiune si imaginatia voastra. :)

ELF Beauty On The Go Palette swatches & mini review


When I posted the haul, one of my followers asked me to do a post with swatches of this two palettes, along with a few impressions. In the meantime, I forgot about them, but since last night I couldn't sleep because I wasn't feeling well, I decided to take pictures of them.
Cand am postat haul'ul, una dintre cititoare m'a rugat sa fac o postare cu swatch'uri ale acestor palete, impreuna cu ceva impresii. Intre timp, am uitat de ele, dar din moment ce azi noapte nu am putut dormi pentru ca nu ma simteam bine, m'am hotarat sa le fac poze.


Date Night


Shopping Spree


I had to do a couple layers when swatching, because, as we all know, ELF's eye shadows aren't very pigmented, unless we're talking about the mineral ones. As Alina (the follower I was telling you about) said, these palettes are a very good option for traveling, as they do not only have eye shadows, but also lipsticks (I'd rather call them lip glosses, as they are not very pigmented, but with a few layers the color is fairly intense, and they look very pretty) and a blush/bronzer.
A trebuit sa adaug cateva straturi cand swatch'uiam, deoarece, dupa cum bine stim, fardurile ELF nu sunt foarte pigmentate, decat daca vorbim despre cele minerale. Dupa cum a spus si Alina (cititoarea de care va spuneam), aceste palete sunt o optiune foarte buna pentru excursii, deoarece nu au numai farduri de pleoape, ci si rujuri (le'as numi mai degraba gloss'uri, deoarece nu sunt nici ele foarte pigmentate, dar dupa cateva straturi culoarea este relativ intensa, si arata foarte dragute) si un blush/bronzer.

If you aren't the type to wear very intense makeup, I totally recommend them, and you will find that they are worth the money. On the other hand, if you prefer very pigmented eye shadows, I suggest you search for other options, as they won't meet your expectations.
Daca nu sunteti genul sa purtati un machiaj foarte intens, clar le recomand, si veti descoperi ca isi merita banii (18 lei). Pe de alta parte, daca preferati fardurile de pleoape foarte pigmentate, va sugerez sa cautati alte optiuni, deoarece acestea nu se vor ridica la asteptarile voastre.

Travel essentials - summer edition

Hey girls. :*

Considering most of us are going to travel this summer, I've decided to show you my beauty essentials for when I'm traveling. I'm going to leave face creams out of the post as we all have different preferences and I wouldn't like you to purchase my favorites and find they do not fit your needs.
Avand in vedere faptul ca majoritatea vom calatori in acesta vara, m'am hotarat sa va arat produsele de frumusete esentiale pentru cand calatoresc. Voi omite din postare cremele de fata pentru ca avem preferinte diferite si nu as vrea sa va cumparati preferatele mele si sa aflati ca nu se potrivesc cu nevoile voastre.

Face care/Ingrijirea fetei



Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser (review)

I suggest you go for the 30ml bottle, which also comes with the muslin cloth. It is the best option for traveling, as it is both a exfoliating cleanser and a makeup remover, all in one cute tiny bottle.
Va sugerez sa alegeti sticluta de 30 de ml, care vine si cu prosopel. Este cea mai buna optiune pentru calatorii, deoarece e si un cleanser exfoliant si demachiant, toate intr'o sticla mica si draguta.



Balea Vital Eye Roll-on

Very refreshing, perfect for after-party mornings for example. The cooling effect is amazing.
Foarte revigorant, perfect pentru diminetile de dupa petreceri de exemplu. Efectul racoritor e uimitor.


Eye make-up/Machiajul ochilor



ELF Primer (review)

An extremely cheap and very good eyelid primer. Don't forget that during the summer your lids tend to be more oily than they usually are, so the primer is an absolute must.
Un primer pentru pleoape extrem de ieftin si foarte bun. Nu uitati ca pe timpul verii peoapele tind sa fie mai uleioase ca de obicei, deci primerul este absolut necesar.



Sleek Storm Palette

The perfect palette for traveling. It has all the colors you need for both a neutral make up and a dramatic one, plus a very big mirror.
Paleta perfecta pentru calatorii. Are toate culorile de care aveti nevoie atat pentru un machiaj natural cat si pentru unul dramatic, plus o oglinda foarte mare.



Sleek Acid Palette

Same as the Storm palette, very useful if you're the type to wear colored makeup, rather than a more neutral one.
La fel ca paleta Storm, foarte utila daca sunteti genul care prefera un machiaj colorat, mai degraba decat unul mai neutru.



Avon SuperShock Mascara

The best mascara for both a natural look (if you only use one coat) and a more dramatic one (if you use multiple coats).
Cea mai buna mascara atat pentru un look natural (daca folositi numai un strat) cat si pentru unul mai dramatic (daca folositi mai multe straturi).


Lips/Buze



Oriflame Very Me Clickit Lip Stain (review)

Very very good lip stain, very resistant and you will need that during your vacation. It is available in two gorgeous shades and the best thing is that its intensity increases with every layer you add on your lips.
Un lip stain foarte foarte bun, foarte rezistent, lucru de care veti avea nevoie in vacanta. Este disponibil in doua nuante superbe si partea cea mai buna este ca intensitatea culorii creste cu fiecare strat pe care il adaugati in plus pe buze.


Fragrance/Parfum



Travalo Excel (review)

Cutest, most useful accessory. Fill it with your favorite perfume and he will become your best friend.
Cel mai dragut si cel mai util accesoriu. Il umpleti cu perfumul preferat si va deveni prietenul vostru cel mai bun.

DIY: Sponge nail polish remover (Dizolvant pentru unghii cu burete)





English:

What do you need?

1.
A clean, small jar
2. Scrisors
3. A sponge (I chose a bath one, that type with two different layers)
4. Nail polish remover (acetone free, if possible)
5. Optional: Accessories for the jar. Stickers, phone accesories, whatever you could think of works perfectly. (I chose to use a sticker for the lid and a doll that was supposed to be a phone accessory)

How do you do it?
Start cutting the sponge. Don't worry about the small pieces you're making, you will use those too. When the sponge is small enough to fit in the jar, add the small pieces that fell from it while you were trying to even it out, then add the big sponge piece. Cut it a little bit in the middle, on the upper part, then add nail polish remover. Next, decorate your jar, and enjoy using it. As easy as that!

P.S. I really want to see your results.



Romana:

De ce aveti nevoie?

1.
Un borcanel micut, curat
2. Un burete (eu am ales unul de baie, acel tip cu doua straturi diferite)
3. Foarfeca
4. Dizolvant pentru unghii (fara acetona, daca e posibil)

5. Optional: Accesorii pentru borcanel. Stickere, accesorii pt telefon, orice va trece prin cap merge perfect. (Eu am ales sa folosesc un sticker pentru capac si o papusa care se presupunea a fi accesoriu pentru telefon)

Cum il faceti?
Incepeti sa taiati buretele. Nu va ingrijorati din cauza bucatelelor mici pe care le faceti, le veti folosi si pe ele. Cand buretele este suficient de mic incat sa incapa in borcanel, introduceti bucatelele care au picat din el cand incercati sa il egalati, apoi adaugati bucata mare de burete. Taiati'o putin in mijloc, in partea de sus, apoi adaugati dizolvantul pentru unghii. Apoi, decorati borcanajul, si folositi'l cu placere. Atat de simplu!

P.S. Chiar vreau sa vad rezultatele voastre.

My little jewelry: Travalo Excel

Today I want to talk about the prettiest thing I have in my beauty case: Travalo Excel. Gorgeous refillable atomizer, small size that still accommodates up to 65 sprays, approved in planes, extremely resistant (aircraft grade aluminum and shatterproof glass), easy refill, adorable case, what more could you ask for? Perhaps just a perfume to fill it with.
Astazi vreau sa vorbesc despre cel mai frumos lucru din portfardul meu: Travalo Excel. Atomizor reincarcabil superb, dimensiune mica in care incap totusi pana 65 de "pufuri" de parfum, permis in avioane, extrem de rezistent (aluminiu de aeronave si sticla securizata), reincarcare usoara, cutie adorabila, ce ati mai putea dori? Poate doar un parfum cu care sa il umpleti.


The filling process/Procesul de umplere

You take the sprayer off your perfume, place your Travalo on top of it, then you push it downwards as many times as needed to fill it (aprox. 65 times). Yes, it really is that simple, and now you won't need to carry a huge perfume bottle in your purse.
Scoateti pulverizatorul parfumului, il plasati pe Travalo deasupra, apoi il impingeti in jos de cate ori e nevoie pentru a il umple (aprox 65 de ori). Da, chiar este atat de simplu, iar acum nu va mai trebui sa carati o sticla enorma de parfum in poseta.


Travalo Excel is available in 10 gorgeous colors (mine is fortunately black, as you can see) and you can find it here for £9.99 or £12.49, depending on the color. I keep mine in the small beauty case I got from Sephora (you saw it in this haul), together with a lipstick and a mini eyeliner today.
Travalo Excel este disponibil in 10 culori superbe (al meu din fericire este negru, dupa cum puteti vedea) si il puteti gasi aici la 9.99£ sau la 12.49£, in functie de culoare. Eu pe al meu in tin in mini portfardul de la Sephora (l'ati vazut in acest haul), astazi impreuna cu un ruj si un mini creion de ochi.

Big & lovely haul

As I've promised on my FB page a long time ago, here's a haul. It's a big one, but it's not complete, because a part of the things I've purchased are at my boyfriend's house. It's mostly nail polishes, but I plan to do a collection post so you'll see them then.
Dupa cum am promis pe pagina mea de FB acum mult timp, va prezint un haul. E mare, dar nu este complet, deoarece o parte din produsele pe care le'am cumparat sunt acasa la prietenul meu. E vorba in mare parte de oje, dar planuiesc sa fac o postare cu colectia mea deci le veti vedea atunci.
