BareMinerals 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow “Soft Linen”

Nyhet från BareMinerals! Krämskugga under namnet 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow (phew), ska ha fem funktioner tack vare fräsiga ingredienser: long wear colour, prime, brighten, smooth, protect. Jag vill sammanfatta såhär:

Krämskugga med SPF 15, grym idé eftersom huden runt ögonen är så känslig. Formulan är riktigt silkig, inte klibbig som en primer brukar vara utan känns mer “cream to powder”, detta förstås pga silikoner. Det är gissningsvis det som också som blurrar fina linjer runt ögonen. Känns inte torr och stramande på huden utan smidig och mjuk, låser sig ändå på plats och rör sig inte ur fläcken på bra länge. Det finns troligen bättre hardcore-primers om du är ute efter något som ska bumpa upp färgen i puderskuggor, hade önskat lite mer klibb ur denna för att bli riktigt såld på primeraspekten, så ser den hellre som en hållbar krämskugga. Alla nyanser i linjen har ett lätt skimmer vilket ger en uppljusande tredimensionell effekt på ögat.

News from BareMinerals! A cream shadow called 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow (phew) which is supposed to have 5 functions thanks to fancy ingredients: long wear colour, prime, brighten, smooth, protect. I would put it like this:

Cream shadow with SPF 15, great idea as the eyelids are so sensitive. The formula is very silky, not sticky as a primer usually is, more of a “cream to powder” effect which probably is thanks to silicone. That’s probably what blurs fine lines around the eyes aswell. Doesn’t feel tight and dry on the skin, rather soft and supple, but still locks in place and doesn’t budge. There are probably better hardcore primers out there if you want to bump the colours in powder eyeshadows, I would have wanted a bit more stickiness out of this to get sold when it comes to the prime effect so I see it as a long wearing cream eyeshadow instead. All shades in the line have a light shimmer which gives the eyes a brightening 3D effect.

The cream eyeshadow comes in a cute frosted tube with a flat wand. Very easy to dab out and blend with a finger or brush.

When applied it looks very light, but with some blending it turns darker. So strange! Soft Linen is the lightest shade in the range, I would actually have wanted a shade even lighter than this for an ultra brightening effect on pale skin, even though this works just fine.

Before and after applying it on my lid. Soft Linen really neutralizes and creates a soft and even canvas. The slight shimmer looks very flattering!

Sweet Nectar

Another great combo! Orange lips and nails with apricot cheeks creates a soft monochrome effect. I’ve been doing this kind of look for so many years now, matching oranges is goooorgeous and keeps from looking silly.

Deborah Lippmann “Dear Mr. Fantasy”

Har ni någon gång haft höga förväntningar på en skönhetsprodukt som visat sig vara liiiite av en flopp, precis nog för att göra en besviken? Precis det hände med Dear Mr. Fantasy från Deborah Lippmanns julkollektion Fantastical. Jag hoppades på en godisrosa med blå glöd, men på nageln upplever jag den snarare som en rosatonad lila. Noooooo! Jag vill inte ha lila! Lacket i sig är ren magi, två till tre lager ger full täckning och ett FANTASTISKT djup, det ser verkligen ut som julgranskulor. Om du, till motsats från mig, gillar lila nyanser så kör hårt! Du kommer älska det!

Have you had high hopes for a beauty product and then been let down just sliiighly, just enough to feel disappointed? It happened to me with Dear Mr. Fantasy from the Deborah Lippmann Fantastical holiday collection. I was hoping for a candy pink with a blue glow, but on the nails it rather reads as a pinky purple. Nooooo! I don’t want purple! The polish itself is pure magic though, two to three coats gives full coverage and a GORGEOUS depth, it really looks like a christmas ornament. If you, unlike me, like purples then go ahead! You’ll adore it!
