Be my Valentines!

Here are my worst beauty related cravings at the moment, and what other time of the year is more perfect to spread some love other than Valentines day? Be my beauty product Valentines!



China Glaze Avant Garden collection

The China Glaze spring collection always seems to be my favourite nail polish release every year, and this one is no exception. I want every single shade! Available at Transdesign.

Lit Cosmetics Glitters

I have a serious addiction to Lit glitters and instead of craving dark foxy shades I’m now totally into pale ice cream shades to apply softly over everyday makeup looks. Shades shown: Lemon Tart, Rainbow Ride, Soilar Blast, Boogie Wonderland, Hawaii 5-0. Available at Lit Cosmetics.

Montale Black Oud EdP

A deep medicinal gothic rose to anti-match those sweet pastels. Colour blocking scent style! Available at Aus Liebe Zum Duft.

Cozzette Brushes

I’m totally interested in trying this brush line out, high quality vegan brushes with a serious approach. Me like! The face brushes seem too good to be true. Available at Cozzette.

Make Up Geek Gel Liner in Electric

Is it as bright as I’m hoping? Is it as matte as I’m hoping? Hope so. I can’t get enough blinding shades of blue! Available at Makeup Geek.

Aedes de Venustas EdP

Zingy rhubarb, red berries and tomato leaf, the mineralic burn of carbonated water. This one is amazing in the summer heat and I’d be delighted to own a bottle of this beauty one day. Available at Aus Liebe Zum Duft.

Serge Lutend Bornéo 1834 EdP

Deep, dry cocoa and patchouli. Thanks to Julia I finally got myself a sample of this, and my hope for a new love was confirmed. Oh baby, I want to kiss myself wearing this, it’s so deep and cozy. Available at Serge Lutens.

Too Faced La Crème Lip Cream

I’ve tried two of these before, and Naked Dolly came to be the only pale nude that I’ve ever been able to rock with confidence. Now I want to try some more neutrals, these are Cinnamon Kiss, Honey Bear, Nude Beach and Spice Spice Baby. Available at Beauty Bay.

Byredo Fragranced Candle in Apocalyptic

I’ve walked past this scented candle about a zillion times at NK in here Sweden, smelling it hoping to finally do the final kill, the card swipe. It hasn’t happened yet. However, it smells the way that I imagine an old English men’s club smelling, which is and edge that I would love to give my living room. Available at Byredo.

    Från ett par veckor sen, men ändå…
    Älskar att både se och göra såna här kollage
    Tycker också att lacken är grymt lockande. Blev sugen att lukta på ljuset också.

    Solar blast is really amazing!

    Åh, jag är också sugen på avant garden-kollektionen! Vi får se om jag beställer något ur den. Och Too Faced’s lippisar ser ju kanon ut. Du hade testat något sådant tidigare, eller hur var det nu igen?

    Borstarna såg riktigt intressanta ut, men kunde inte hitta någon webbshop? Och Too Faced lip creme i Naked Dolly har jag velat ha ända sen dom kom ut. Riktigt förbannad på Nelly för att dom inte hartagit in den färgen haha (har presentkort där).

    I’m completely with you on Aedes de Venustas. The tomato leaf and rhubarb – just gorgeous

Glossy claws, purrty lips, serious eyebrows and a passion for critical thinking. Beauty blogger from Gothenburg, Sweden.

My name is Viola Holmgren and I've been representing Swedish beauty bloggerism (yes. we're a cult) since 2008. I focus on cruelty free beauty and I love the feeling of finding cool products that have gone under the radar.

Makeup doesn't have rules. The only person who decides what's right or wrong and if you're wearing it or not is you, and that's where my job as a blogger comes in handy. Use my experience as a guide or an inspiration towards finding your own way.

And just to clarify, all reviews and opinions are my own, there is no evil baby demon on my left shoulder who is bribing, forcing or possessing me to write. Reviews are best written in honesty!
