Recension, Skönhet


Inglot Scandinavia were so sweet and sent me a little package of luvvv containing products that all were 100% my taste, I’m so excited to dig through them! Thank you so much! <3 Just look at this gold pigment for example, my brain just exploded. It doesn’t even look a tenth as amazing photographed as it does in real life, it’s like a gritty gold leaf with a drop of bronze. When rubbed into the eyelid, especially over a sticky base, it turns into a solid foil. So crazy!

The other day I wore it on top of a brown eyeshadow, just smacked it on with a finger and brushed the fallout off my cheeks (because can’t deny it, there’s quite a bit with this much shimmer). Who can resist this glam rock goodness?

Stay Angry

I get so pissed. Especially during times when life is confusing and hard, I just can’t handle the conforming beauty standards that I work within. It’s a bonus weight that provokes me so damn bad. Sometimes it feels like a surreal joke how humanity constructed this giant machine that spits rules on what is right and what isn’t, which we then follow more or less unknowingly and put each other down for something that doesn’t matter at all in the end.

You shouldn’t look angry, look silly, weigh more than x, be like anyone else, be different, have an asymmetric face, have an uninteresting face, have blemished skin, follow trends, have hair on your face or body, wear a certain colour against your skin, wear an amount or type of makeup based on your gender identity.. Please let’s just fuck it all. 

On that note I’m giving you something else today. Messy, cakey, asymmetrical and insanely pleasing. It’s my way of telling you how much I truly appreciate seeing you guys pasted all over the internet doing weird and nonconforming shit, it gives me butterflies every time. You are my fuel! Stay angry, darlings.

Blog info:
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!
