Hello, people of the internet!

Imate li svijetlu put? Pitaju li vas ljudi jeste li bolesni kada vas vide? Imate li problema pronaći odgovarajuću nijansu pudera u drogerijama? Je li vam i najsvjetlija nijansa pudera tamna?
Ako su odgovori na ova pitanja "da" - nastavite čitati, jer danas je na redu jedan proizvod koji je dušu dao za takve situacije.

Do you have fair skin? Do people ask you if you are sick when they see you? Do you have troubles finding the right shade of foundation in drugstores? Is the lightest shade of foundation too dark for you?
If the answers to these questions are "yes" - keep reading, because today I present you the product which is perfect for those situations.

Danas vam pišem o The Body Shop shade adjusting drops u nijansi lightening, tj posvjetljivaču za tekuće pudere i korektore. Vjerujem da ste viđali već ovakav tip proizvoda, a na području BiH najdostupniji su Catrice i Alverde. Catrice nisam probala, ali Alverde jesam i utisci mi nisu pozitivni. Pri posjeti Londonu odlučila sam kupiti ovaj  The Body Shop posvjetljivač, jer sam pročitala samo pozitivne stvari o njemu.

Today I'm writing about The Body Shop shade adjusting drops in the shade lightening, ie liquid foundation and concealer lightener. I believe you have been seeing this kind of products, and in Bosnia and Herzegovina the most available ones are from Catrice and Alverde. I haven't tried the Catrice one, but I have tried the Alverde one and I didn't like it. During my visit to London I decided to buy this  The Body Shop lightener, because I've read only positive things about it. 

Posvjetljivač dolazi u minimalističkoj staklenoj bočici sa pipetom, što je veoma praktično, a stakleno pakiranje izgleda baš luksuzno. U bočici dobijete 15 ml proizvoda i, koliko se sijećam, tada sam ga platila 8£ (moguće da je bio na popustu), a trenutno na stranici piše da košta 11£. Na bočici se nalaze sve informacije vezane za proizvod, uključujući i listu sastojaka.

The lightener comes in a minimalist glass bottle with a dropper, which is quite practical, and the glass packaging looks quite luxurious. You get 15 ml of product inside and, if I recall well, back then I paid 8£ (it may have been on discount) and it is currently 11£ on their website. All the information about the product and the list of ingredients are stated on the packaging.

Miris proizvoda je slatkast, no veoma blag i ispari veoma brzo. Iako na prvu izgleda potpuno bijelo, njegova boja je zapravo kao prljavo bijela i mrvicu vuče na rozo. Tekstura mu je dosta vodenasta i rijetka, što bih navela kao plus jer se lakše miješa. Pigmentacija je OK, a prekrivanje lagano do srednje - tj. kada bi ga koristili samostalno, bilo da samo želite posvjetliti malo neki dio lica ili koristiti preko cijelog za neki umjetnički look. 
Što se tiče funkcije posvjetljivanja, ovaj prizvod to odlično radi. Ovisno koliko nijansi želite posvijetliti nijansu, otprilike toliko kapljica stavite. Pošto sam ja prilično svijetla, posebno zimi, a u većini slučajeva i najsvjetlije nijanse tekućih pudera u drogerijama su mi pretamne, meni je dovoljna jedna kapljica za jednu upotrebu. Dakle, prije nanošenja tekućeg pudera na gornjoj strani dlana umiješam jednu kapljicu u količinu pudera koju inače nanosim na lice. Također sam ga probala ubaciti i direktno u posudicu sa tekućim puderom koji sam željela posvijetliti i u toj ulozi se također pokazao odličnim. Osim nijanse, nije promijenio ni teksturu ni prekrivanje ni miris bilo kojeg tekućeg pudera uz kojeg sam ga koristila.

The product scent is sweet, but barely noticeable and fades out rather quickly. Although at first it looks completely white, its color is actually off-white and has a light pinkish tone. The texture is quite watery and runny, which I would count as a plus because it makes it easier to mix. The pigmentation is OK and the coverage is light to medium - that is, if you use it by itself, whether you just want to highlight a particular part of your face or use it on the whole face for some artsy look.
As for the lightening function, this product does it extremely well. Depending on how many shades you want to lighten the foundation by, you put about that many drops. Since I'm quite fair, especially in winter, and in most cases the lightest shades of foundations in drugstores are too dark for me, I require one drop for one use. Thus, before applying foundation, on the back of my palm I mix one drop of lightener with the amount of foundation I usually apply on my face. I've also tried to drop it directly into the foundation container which I wanted to lighten and it played that role well, too. Except for shade, it didn't change the texture nor coverage nor scent of any foundation I mixed it with. 

Ovaj proizvod sam već spominjala na svom youtube kanalu u nekom od videa o favoritima. Sve pozitivne recenzije koje sam o njemu vidjela i pročitala i sama potvrđujem. Svoj posao radi i više nego odlično i definitivno ga preporučujem. 💓 Sada mogu kupiti bilo koju nijansu pudera bez straha da će mi biti pretamna.

I have already mentioned this product on my youtube channel in one of the videos with favorite products. All the positive reviews I've seen and read, I affirm too. I does it's job more than well and I definitely recommend it. 💓 Now I can buy any shade of foundation without fear of it being too dark for me. 

Jeste li probali neki posvjetljivač za tekuće pudere?
