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.

IDUN Minerals Lipstick “Jordgubb”

Här är läppstiftet jag nämnde i förra IDUN Minerals-inlägget! En fantastiskt snygg röd nyans vid namn Jordgubb, klassisk röd men samtidigt inte! Den är mjukare och har en droppe gult i sig vilket får den att flirta med korall, men registreras ändå som rött. Den känns verkligen vintage!

Stiftet glider på helt problemfritt med sin mjuka och tunna pigmentrika formula, inte glossig och smetig och inte heller matt och uttorkande. Perfekt kasta-på-stift eftersom inget meck med pennor eller liknande behövs, den är snygg på tio sekunder! Formulan känns vid applicering rätt lik NYX Black Label Lipstick om ni har testat dem, men är snäppet mer hållbar på läpparna. Stiftet har en lätt rosdoft, inte nära på lika stark som på läppglansen (som jag själv knappt klarar av att använda) men finns klart där. Här är den rätt trevlig tycker jag, det skänker lite lyxkänsla.

Finns snart att shoppa (om det inte är ute redan), här är IDUNs återförsäljare. Kostar 189 kr och finns i massa andra fina färger också.

 

Here’s the lipstick that I mentioned in my last IDUN Minerals blog post! A really lovely red shade called Jordgubb (strawberry in Swedish), classic red but at the same time interesting! It’s softer and has a drop of yellow in it which makes it flirt with coral, but still registers as red. It feels very vintage!

The lipstick glides on without a problem because of its soft and thin pigmented formula, it’s not gloss and gloopy and not matte and drying either. A perfect one for just throwing on and leaving because you don’t need any pencils or stuff like that, it looks good in ten seconds! The formula feels a bit like the NYX Black Label Lipsticks at application, but it wears a bit better on the lips. The lipstick has a slight rose scent, not even close to as strong as the lipglosses (which I personally barely can’t wear) but it’s definitely there. Here it’s quite nice I think, it gives a luxurious touch. Available at Swedish pharmacies.

The lipstick comes in a pretty black and silver packaging with a clear bottom that shows the colour of the product. So handy!

Applied straight onto the lips from the bullet. Droooool

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Balm “Barcelona Nights”

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Balm är ett geléigt läppglans som lämnar läpparna mjuka och sköna med en lätt stain-effekt, helt klart inspirerad av YSL‘s Glossy Stain som släpptes för ett par år sedan. Stain-effekten är inte lika stark och formulan känns inte lika smooooth som lyxversionen, men fasen, det är snyggt på läpparna! Håller snäppet längre än ett vanligt gloss och känns mindre klistrigt, har ingen doft men smakar lite plastig vanilj. Nyansen Barcelona Nights är bärigt rödrosa och perfekt för färgglada vardagsläppar. Finns att shoppa på Eleven.se!

Revlon Colourstay Moisture Balm is a gel like lip gloss that leaves the lips soft and with a slight stain, definitely inspired by the YSL Glossy Stain that was released a few years ago. The stain effect is not as strong and the formula doesn’t feel as smoooooth than the luxury version, but heck, it looks really good on the lips! Stays on the lip slightly longer than you average lipgloss and feels less sticky, has no scent but tastes a little like plasticy vanilla. The shade called Barcelona Nights is a berry pinky red and is perfect for bright everyday lips!

The lip gloss/stain/balm (whatever you prefer calling it) comes in a sleek square tube with a heart shaped wand.

Applied once all over the lips, it’s super glossy and has great colour payoff.
