Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick Succulence of Dew “Dissolved in Dreams”

Rouge Bunny Rouge, oslagbara mästare på långa knasiga namn. Denna gång kikar vi på Sheer Lipstick Succulence of Dew, helknäppt and I like it! Formulan på dessa stift är fantastisk på torra vinterläppar, geléaktig och mjukgörande. Det ihop med ett finmalt skimmer ger dessutom läpparna sjuk 3D-effekt. MUMS! Det enda minuset är att läppstiften går av lättare än andra, just för att formulan är så mjuk. Dissolved in Dreams är en vattenmelonröd nyans med silverskimmer, perfekt snällröd då den inte upplevs knallig på läpparna. Finns att shoppa på Rouge Bunny Rouges hemsida!

Rouge Bunny Rouge, the unbeatable masters of long quirky names. This time we’re looking at Sheer Lipstick Succulence of Dew, crazy and I like it! The formula of these lipsticks is great for dry winter lips, jelly like and moisturizing. That combined with a finely milled shimmer gives the lips an insane 3D effect. YUM! The only drawback is that the lipsticks break easier than others, just because that soft formula. Dissolved in Dreams is a watermelon red shade with silver shimmer, a perfect soft red that doesn’t look bright on the lips. Available at the Rouge Bunny Rouge website!

IsaDora Twist-Up Matt Lips for spring 2015 – swatches & review

Med IsaDoras vårkollektion Nude Essentials släpptes många godbitar, men inget lika spännande som Twist-Up Matt Lips! En uppskruvbar doft- och smakfri (halleluja) läppstiftspenna med lätt känsla på läpparna trots den mattare formulan. Lik NYX matta linje om det säger er något – snarare tunn och silkeslen än sträv och helmatt. Jag skulle inte måla dessa på riktigt nariga läppar då de inte är förlåtande, men de får heller inte läpparna att se sju resor värre ut än de är vilket är ett vanligt fenomen med matta, särskilt ljusa nyanser. Bilderna nedan är tagna på inte-allt-för-bra läppar och det är ingen biggie som ni ser. Sitter bra och fadear snyggt gör de också. Bra jobbat med såpass bleka nyanser, IsaDora!

Än så länge har vi tre nyanser tillgängliga: beigetonade Naked, 60talspersikan Posh Peach och knallpastellrosa Candy Store. Allt vi behöver nu är.. ehh.. alla andra färger. Mörka vinnyanser, bombshellrött och apelsinorange i denna formula tack! Finns ute i handeln nu, rekommenderat pris ligger på 129 kr.


With the IsaDora spring collection called Nude Essentials there were many goodies released, but nothing as exciting as Twist-Up Matt Lips! A scent- and taste free twist up lipstick pen with a light feeling on the lips. Similar to the NYX matte line if that tells you anything – more of a thin and silky feeling than stiff and ultra matte. I wouldn’t apply these on really chapped lips as they aren’t very forgiving, but they don’t make the lips look ten times worse than they actually are which often is the case with matte, especially pale lippies. The pictures below are taken on not-too-good lips and there’s no big deal as you can see. They also wear well and fade nicely. Good work with such pale shades, IsaDora!

By now we have three shades available: Beige toned Naked, 1960′s peachy Posh Peach and bright pastel pink Candy Store. All wee ned now is.. uhm.. all other colours. Dark wines, bombshell reds and citrusy oranges in this formula please! Available in stores now.

The lippies come in sleek matte tubes that clearly show the colours. I always appreciate when they do that!

What the pencil tips look like. I wore them all out before taking photos, oops! From the left: Naked, Posh Peach, Candy Store.

Naked. The only one that has a slight shimmer, barely noticeable though. A somewhat warm toned beige that might be too dark for those who like their nudes pinky pale, I love these earthier shades though as they don’t feel like concealer lips. Perfect everyday shade, will wear the heck out of this one!

Posh Peach. A shade that technically is too pale for me but it’s warm toned enough to lean into 1960′s land, so with a good lashy eye and thick liner this is retro perfection. I love how it’s a true apricoty peach and not too pinky like peaches often get in my opinion. Fantastic formula for such a light lippie.

Candy Store. The shade that I’m not best friends with, though gorgeous both in colour and formula. It’s a cool toned pale hot pink, so it’s really saturated and not “blehh” like soft pinks often get. I like my pinks hot hot hot and rich so not my first hand choice. Totally personal preference though!

2014 in makeup – a look from each month

I saw Frida Skoglund post a look from each month of 2014, so I thought I should do the same! Click the name of the month to find the blog post about the look.

And oh, June is missing! I barely wore makeup during the summer so there were no makeup looks posted in June. A good thing in a way!

Faces that never made it past Instagram

Some looks I neither mange nor have the time to get good pictures of, so they end up as grainy Instagram material (@killercolours). Let’s take a look at some random stuff from about August until now!
