Some new stuff from iHerb!

Idag kom en laddning prylar från bästiga iHerb med posten! Jag behövde ny ansiktskräm, balsam och handtvål, allt, seriöst ALLT är slut här hemma just nu. Jag passade också på att prova på en foundation från veganska Beauty Without Cruelty. Utöver det så behöver man ju alltid te, i synnerhet Earl Grey, så ungefär så såg ordern ut denna gång. Vill ni ha något recenserat? Kort beskrivning av alla produkter finns nedan!

Today an order from  iHerb arrived in the mail! I needed a new moisturizer, conditioner and hand soap, I’m out of everything, seriously EVERYTHING at home right now. I also took the chance to try a new foundation from vegan brand Beauty Without Cruelty. Apart from that you always need tea, especially Earl Grey, so that’s kind of what the order looked like this time! Do you want a review of something? A short description of every product follows below.

Snap Mesh Tea Infuser ($1)
Tea infuser for a dollar, I only had one before so I went for it.

Harney & Sons Earl Grey Supreme Tea ($8.26)
Loose Earl Grey tea that’s supposed to be good. We’ll see!

Tazo Earl Grey Tea ($4.27)
Earl Grey tea in filter bags, also supposed to be good.

Plantlife Hand & Body Foam Soap “Patchouli” ($8.37)
A foamy hand soap for my bathroom sink, I have a serious patchouli problem (and hand washing problem) so this will be great.

Reviva Labs Glycolic Acid Oily Skin Daytime Light Cream Moisturizer ($12.32)
Moisturizer for oily skin. This will hopefully straighten up my skin which gets oilier during the summer.

Beauty Without Cruelty Ultimate Natural Liquid Foundation “Sheer” ($23.95)Moisturizing foundation with a natural finish, the lightest shade is almost too light for my summer skin but will give it a try.

Clearly Natural Essentials Natural Conditioner For Oily Tangled Hair ($4.56)
Conditioner that’s supposed to make oily tangled hair manageable, sounds good to me! Contains some alcohol though, not sure if it’s a mega “no poo” sin?

Mrs. Meyers Clean Day Liquid Hand Soap “Geranium” ($4.16)
Hand soap number two, smells sweet and happy! Cute bottle aswell.

What do you dye your eyebrows with?

I use a Swedish brand called Depend in the darkest brown shade which is Brunsvart. Do you have advice on some great brow dye?

Femme Fatale Cosmetics eyeshadow swatches

I januari lade jag en beställning hos Femme Fatale Cosmetics, jag minns att jag rådfrågade er på Facebook efter roliga mineralmärken och blev tipsad om dem, så jag körde på. De skickar från Australien och med billigaste fraktalternativet till Sverige ($10.50) skulle det ta i snitt 12 veckor att få hem produkterna, poff beställt klart. Sen bara what, 12 veckor är 3 mån?! Och visst tog det svinlång tid, tre månader senare dök paketet upp. Så öh ja, har ni ett kvartal på er att vänta på paket (såvida ni inte väljer det sex dollar dyrare fraktalternativet) kan jag gott rekommendera dem! Skuggorna är verkligen fina.

Som ni ser hade jag en crush på blekblå/lila/rosa kromade skuggor när jag lade beställningen, och crushen håller helt klart fortfarande. De allra kallaste färgerna får kanske vänta till vinternyllet, men jag ser fram emot att använda allihop! Kromeffekterna är svåra att fånga i bild tycker jag, men flera av dem kan ni se rätt tydligt i burklocken! Till exempel de två mörka lila som gnistrar i klargrönt. Drömskt! Alla nyanser jag köpte är veganska.


This January I placed an order at Femme Fatale Cosmetics, I remember that I asked for your opinions on interesting mineral brands and I was told to try these, so I went for it. They send from Australia and the cheapest shipping to Sweden ($10.50) would take about 12 weeks for the products to arrive, boom, the package was ordered. Then I was like what, 12 weeks are 3 months?! And it sure took a long time, three months later I received the shadows. So uh well, if you live far from Australia and are okay with waiting for your order (unless you pay six more dollars for more expensive shipping) I can recommend them.

As you can see I had a crush on pale blue/purple/pink shadows when I placed my order, and the crush is definitely still on. The coolest colours might have to wait for my winter face, but I’m really looking forward to wearing them all! I find the chrome effects hard to capture in pictures, but in many of them you can see it quite clear in the lid of the jars! For example the two dark purples that sparkles with bright green. Dreamy! Every shade that I bought is vegan.

Starcaller, Moonglow, The Masquerade, Faerie Fire
Phantasm, Desecration, The Nightmare, Pumpkin Shrine


  • Starcaller – Pale matte blue with a violet sparkle
  • Moonglow – Pale steel blue with soft gold and pink duochrome
  • The Masquerade – Light grey with heavy violet shimmer
  • Faerie Fire – Lavender pink with an intense lime green shimmer/sparkle
  • Phantasm – Pale matte purple with copper shimmer
  • Desecration – Murky prune purple with an intense green shimmer (see the lid in the picture above)
  • The Nightmare – Dark medium purple with an intense green shimmer/sparkle (here aswell, see lid)
  • Pumpkin Shrine – Bright lime green with copper orange shimmer


Starcaller, Moonglow, The Masquerade, Faerie Fire, Phantasm, Desecration, The Nightmare, Pumpkin Shrine


My favourite shades must be Starcaller, The Masquerade and Phantasm. Which are your favourites out of these? Or have you tried Femme Fatale Cosmetics before and found other shades that you like?
