Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop Eyeshadow Stick in Honey Bunny

The Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop Eyeshadow Stick is a gel-like eyeshadow stick that glides on with a cooling sensation and dries down to a smudge proof long wearing eyeshadow. This is in the colour Honey Bunny, a sparkly champagne shade with an almost transparent base, it’s like the eyeshadow version of a clear nail polish with glitter if you’re with me? It has that fancy sparkle that only expensive products seem to have (I hate to admit it, cheaper glitter/shimmer DOES have a flatter look) so this little pearl will totally steal the show without being a crazy in your face colour. Great for fancy everyday wear!

The simple fact that this little gem is 100% glam yet 100% effortless makes it worth its weight in gold. Just glide it over the lid and pop some mascara on (if even that) and you’re done!

Today I thought I should wear as many products as possible from the Kevyn Aucoin Bloody Gorgeous set but I chickened out once I had applied the eyeshadow and the mascara, I liked it too much with a neutral lip so the dark lip products will have to wait. But isn’t this eyeshadow amazing? Even over no primer it applies really smooth and pigmented. The mascara also surprised me, it looks great with two thick coats.

So instead of the Bloody Gorgeous products I used a lot of stuff that I got from Sephora the other day. I’m liking most of it this far, the only thing I’m on the fence about is the foundation. I’m not sure if I like how it feels on the skin, plus it enhances dry spots a bit too well.. Hmm! We’ll see for sure when I’ve used it more.

Better Than Sex

I’m testing the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara at the moment, I’ve been curious for a long time so you can imagine how happy I was when I got it in a little gift bag right before the opening of Sephora here in Gothenburg! Yay! I can already say that the formula is fantastic and it wears well, but I’m not too in love with the shape of the brush. Oh well, I’ll review it for you once I’m done deciding what I think!

Also, today I finally visited the store and I did some serious damage. Will do a round up of the stuff I got later.

Jungle Queen

The first thing I want to say today is THANK YOU for being so kind, so many of you have sent supportive messages and comments, and even though I haven’t replied to all of them I read and feel super thankful for having you. I’m also glad that the fact that I’m bringing up anxiety helps so many of you, I totally agree with you when you say that it needs to be talked about openly. It’s rare to see. I’m sending my love right back at all of you who sit there feeling the same way as I do, I see you!

I decided to show up at the opening of the first Sephora store on the Swedish westcoast (bestcoast) yesterday as a battle against all that anxiety, but got a panic attack on the bus just from trying and it got even worse when I saw the queue wrapping a quarter of the building, so I did a 180 and left. Good times! Now I’m on sick-leave for two weeks and on new medication (that makes me all mentally cross-eyed, explains potential strangeness in this post) so I’m hoping that things will clear up soon.

The look that I wore to the event that I didn’t even attend was this. Haha! I’m loving this coral red lipstick by Lipstick Queen, it’s called Jungle Queen and was made especially to compliment animal prints. Meow!
