Indigo Bananas “Fiery The Angels Fell”

Här är ett lack jag bar förra veckan, Fiery The Angels Fell från Indigo Bananas! Jag blev faktiskt rätt förvånad över hur jag upplevde det på naglarna.. På bilder jag sett är det så färgstarkt och skiftar från en eldorange till gyllengult och rosenrosa. Det gör det absolut i verkligheten också, men bara i mjukt ljus! I direkt sol är det snarare en tunn smutsorange glitterkräka, medan det är alldeles jättevackert i skuggan. Så konstigt! Det behövde tre lager och levlade inte ut ordentligt på naglarna, så jag var väl inte slagen av någon fantastisk formula heller. Hmm, den här är svår att skapa en uppfattning om. Jag tror att jag gillar den, men den är inte riktigt den magiska rymdorange jag hade hoppats på.

Du kan hitta dem i Indigo Bananas Etsyshop eller på svenska Edgy Polish!

 

Here’s a polish that I wore last week, Fiery The Angels Fell from Indigo Bananas! I was very surprised by how I experienced it on my nails.. In pictures I’ve seen it looks so vibrant and shifts from a fiery orange to golden yellow and a rosy pink. It absolutely does in real life too, but only in soft light! In bright light it looks like a thin dirt orange sparkly puke, while in the shadow it’s a total beauty. So strange! It needed three coats and didn’t level out perfectly on the nail, so I wasn’t struck by a great formula either. Hmmm, this is a really hard one to come to a decision with. I think I like it, but it’s not really the buttery liquid space orange I was hoping for.

You can find it at Indigo Bananas Etsy shop or at Swedish Edgy Polish!

Pictures from the Aagard Design fashion show

Remember this pink haired beauty? Here’s a set of pictures from the actual fashion show with the two makeup looks I did (out of four looks). I love the plasticy highlighted skin!

Smitten Polish “Bifrost”

Todays manicure is Bifrost from Smitten Polish, a holographic night sky blue. It’s really beautiful, very vibant and glowing for being so dark! It doesn’t even look dull in softer light like holographic polishes often do.

The formula isn’t perfect as it’s a tad sensitive to dragging, when you apply you have to do it in a few strokes to not pull away any polish, but it’s far from a pita. Just be aware of it when you apply it and you won’t have any problems.

Go get it at Edgy Polish!

Ellis Faas, a peek and some quick swatches!

För ett tag sedan kontaktade Ellis Faas mig och frågade om jag ville prova några produkter, jag pep av glädje då jag under lång tid varit väldigt nyfiken på märket. Igår dök paketet upp innehållandes allt på min önskelista, lycklig, tacksam och lite förälskad är vad jag är!

Ellis Faas har ett intressant koncept där de flesta produkterna i linjen är “human colours”, med andra ord färger som kroppen själv producerar, vilket ska underlätta jakten efter produkter som matchar huden fint. Inga produkter är doft- eller smaksatta. Märket har även en grym djurtestpolicy. Är du sugen på att shoppa så kan du göra det på Ellis Faas hemsida.

Låt mig veta om det är någon särskilt nyans ni vill se en djupare recension på!

 

A while ago Ellis Faas contacted me and asked if I wanted to try some of their products out, and I squealed a little because I’ve been so curious to try this brand for a long time now. Today they arrived and I found everything from my wishlist in the package. Happy, thankful and a bit in love is what I am!

Ellis Faas has this interesting concept where most products from the line are “human colours”, in other words colours that are produced by the body itself, which is supposed to make it easy to find shades that match your skin. None of the products have any scent or taste. The brand also has a fab animal testing policy. If you’re curious you can do your shopping at the Ellis Faas website.

Let me know if there’s a special shade that you would like to see a deeper review on!

From the left: Light E302 (eyeshadow), Blush S302 (blush), Milky Lips L203 (lipstick), Creamy Lips L101 (lipstick), Hot Lips L404 (lipstick)

Light “E302″ – A green gold smudgeproof cream eyeshadow. Feels a bit crispy-flaky when dried, we’ll see how it wears on the eyes.

Blush “S302″ – A fresh coral cream blush. Applies and blends like a dream, just the right amount of pigment. Slight shimmer.

Milky Lips “L203″ – A plum coloured liquid lipstick. Feels thin and balmy yet gives good colour payoff, the colour is 1920 in a nutshell.

Creamy Lips “L101″ – An “Ellis Red” liquid lipstick. A tad thicker and glossier, this blood red shade is just insanely beautiful.

Hot Lips “L404″ – A fluo pink lip stain/lipstick. Thickest and most pigmented out of these. An insane colour with insane opacity.
