Makeup look + mini review of Cailyn Cosmetics Gel Eyeshadow Pencil and Eyebrow Duo

Cailyn Cosmetics has the best cleansing balm ever, after discovering that it went downhill. Every time I visit the little Pure Cosmetic store in Gothenburg I get sucked in and end up trying new stuff. This time it was a beautiful plum toned Gel Eyeshadow Pencil in Charming, perfect for enhancing green eyes without smacking bright purple on your face. Here I’m wearing it quite heavily applied, I worked in layers and blended it out between the coats to get a softer effect. You could of course apply a thin sharp line if you prefer that look, or layer it with other eyeshadows/pencils.

I’m also trying the Eyebrow Duo in Brunette (which is far too coppery for actual brunettes). Since I dyed my hair this bright copper shade the only thing that matched my brows well was a not very well pigmented brow powder from a huge Viva la Diva palette, this one is about the same shade but much more handbag/travel friendly as it’s just like a little single eyeshadow. It’s very pigmented which is great, but on the other hand it’s very soft and powdery. When I dab my angled brush in it kicks up a bunch of powder so you can’t just mush the bristles in there, but a tiny dab coats an entire eyebrow. Pros and cons!

Cailyn Cosmetics Gel Eyeshadow Pencil in Charming. I love these twist-up pencils.. It’s the easiest way ever to create a quick smokey eye.

Cailyn Cosmetics Gel Eyeshadow Pencil in Charming. Right inbetween plummy purple and brown, a super wearable shade that will subtly enhance green eyes.

Cailyn Cosmetics Eyebrow Duo in Brunette. Obviously not ashy enough for actual brunettes but SO good for matching a golden copper without much red tones.

Some new LUSH goodies

Idag gled jag in på jobbet och handlade på mig några LUSH-nyheter. Typ en fjärdedel av sortimentet har skalats av och nya produkter har stoppats in (och mer kommer), utan att vara partisk så har LUSH helt klart steppat up their game. Jag kunde givetvis inte hålla mig tills jag är tillbaka från min sjukskrivning vilket förhoppningsvis är i slutet av månaden (är på bättringsvägen, tack fina ni som tänker på mig!) utan knatade in idag, dagen efter lansering, och handlade lite. Ska bli SÅ kul att testa alltihop!

Jag köpte två av badbomben Intergalactic, inspirerad av Guardians of the Galaxy. Doftar Vicks Blå! Jag har länge tjatat om att ha ett mintbad i sortimentet och äntligen har det kommit. Fatta vad avslappnande (och bihålerensande..) med mixen av iskallt och kokhett. Denna likt en del andra bomber innehåller popping candy, såna som sprakar i munnen ni vet, vilket låter helt sjukt i badkaret. Lite neonfärger på det så är trippen komplett.

I linje med badbomberna är den turkosa tvålen Outback Mate, eukalyptus, citrongräs och pepparmynta ger Aussie-vibe och den är faktiskt en god ersättare till den bortplockade tvålen Ice Blue. Jag sörjer, men tror jag kommer kunna glömma. Denna är helt klart krämigare i konsistensen.

Sen har vi den röda mjukgörande sockerskrubben The Rough with the Smooth som doftar Lord of Misrule (BÄSTA badbomben som tyvärr bara varit säsongslansering!) med patchouli, svartpeppar och vanilj. Kryddigt och mjukt på samma gång.

Ååååsså sist den nya ansikts- och kroppsmasken Cup o’ Coffee med stimulerande kaffe, rengörande lera och antioxidantrik kakao. Kaffeälskare bara HELL YES! Doftar som massageoljan Percup om ni testat den.

lush news

Mint mint MIIIIIINT!

Today I visited work and bought some of the LUSH news. A large chunk of the range has been discontinued and replaced with new stuff (and more will come), without being partial I must say that LUSH have stepped up their game. Of course I couldn’t keep away until I’m back from my sick leave (I’m on my way back, thank you so much for thinking of me!) at the end of the month so I walked in today, the day after the launch, and did some shopping.

I bought two of the Intergalactic bath bomb, inspired by Guardians of the Galaxy. Smells like minty cough drops! I have been nagging about wanting a mint bath and finally there is one! Just imagine how relaxing (and sinus clearing..) a hot bath with icy mint would be. This bomb like a few others has popping candies in it, so it will sound completely insane in the bath. Put some neon colours on that and the trip is complete.

Along the same lines we have the turquoise Aussie inspired soap Outback Mate with eucalyptus, lemongrass and peppermint. It’s actually a good replacement for the discontinued Ice Blue soap, I’m still sad that it’s gone but this one is definitely creamier in consistency.

Then we have the red moisturizing sugar scrub The Rough with the Smooth which smells like Lord of Misrule (THE BEST bath bomb ever, sadly only a seasonal launch!) with patchouli, black pepper and vanilla. Spicy and soft at the same time.

Aaaand at last the new face and body mask Cup o’ Coffe with stimulating coffee, cleansing clay and antioxidant rich cocoa powder. Coffee lovers say HELL YES! Smells like the Percup massage bar if you’ve tried that one.

Angel Food Cake

I’ve worn this purple eyeshadow from Makeup Geek called Prom Night a lot lately, it’s a shimmery taupe/brown/silver/purple and that complexity makes it super versatile. When I want to enhance the purple tones I tend to use Sensous on the outer corners, not because it’s a good eyeshadow (I don’t think it is, honestly) but because the tone of it goes so well with Prom Night. Then I blend it all out with my bronzer.

I still can’t get enough of purple and green together, I wear it all the time! With a purple this muted I wanted a similarly muted green, so I went for olive green eyeliner this time. Grarggglhglhllll so good.

Aaaaand I want to mention the lip gloss, can we just agree on Angel Food Cake being the perfect pink lippie? Ok? Ok.
