M. Picaut Exfoliating Peel Mask

Exfoliating Peel Mask från det svenska hudvårdsmärket M. Picaut är en kombinerad peeling och ansiktsmask som ska ge näring, lyster och samtidigt exfoliera med jojobapärlor. Utöver exfolierande jojoba, A-vitaminrik aprikoskärnolja och C-vitamin- samt antioxidantbombad havtorn innehåller masken även Phragmites Kharka, ett asiatiskt vass som ska verka antiinflammatoriskt och Poria Cocos, ett svampextrakt som i det gamla Kina sägs ha givit hovfolk stilig lyster och pigmentfläcksbefriad hy. Flera av ingredienserna är från ekologiska odlingar. Denna lilla repertoar hittar du i tub (kom förr i flaska med pipett) om 50ml, kostar ca 350 kr på t.ex. Swedish Beauty Factory, Eleven.se och Hudoteket.

Applicera den krämiga masken undvikandes ögonområdet, peela runt försiktigt och låt sedan sitta i 10 minuter. Skölj av med ljummet vatten. Upprepa ett par gånger i veckan eller så snart din hud börjar kännas solkig och matt.

 

+ Ger hyn en fuktmättat plumpad känsla
+ Passar alla hudtyper som behöver lite kärlek
+ Kräver inte ett dygn av “purging” utan ger mig omedelbar förbättring utan bieffekter
+ Ger ett milt pirr utan att svida eller brännas
+ Jojobapärlorna är många nog för att faktiskt peela men peelar inte hårt
+ Är så vitt jag kan se helt vegansk (inci längst ner)
+ Doftar inte starkt
+ Känns rik och mjuk på huden
+ Lämnar ingen fet hinna efter sig
+ Nya tuben är en totalförbättring

Exfoliating Peel Mask from the Swedish skincare brand M. Picaut is a combined peeling and face mask that is supposed to nourish, give luster to and at the same time peel the skin with jojoba pearls. Apart from the exfoliating jojoba, vitamin A packed apricot kernel oil and vitamin C + antioxidant bombed sea buckthorn it also contains Phragmites Kharka, an inflammatory kind of reed from Asia and Poria Cocos, a fungal extract which in the old China is said to have given royalties lustrous and hyperpigmentation free skin. Many of the ingredients are of organic origin. This little creation is found in 50ml tubes (came in a dropper bottle earlier) and costs about 350 Swedish Kronor, non-Swedish europeans can find it at Eleven.se!

Apply the creamy mask on the face, keep it off the eye area, peel it around slightly and let it sit for 10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. Use a couple of times a week or as soon as your skin starts feeling grey and matte.

 

+ Makes my skin feel plumped and saturated with moisture
+ Suits all skin types that need a little love
+ Doesn’t need a round of “purging“, it gives me instant results without side effects
+ Creates a mild tingle without burning or itching
+ The jojoba pearls aren’t harsh but many enough to peel well
+ Is as far as I can see all vegan (inci below)
+ Doesn’t have a strong smell
+ Feels rich and soft on the skin
+ Doesn’t leave an oily residue
+ The new tube is a total save

Cherry Red

I’ve been wearing this KIKO Cosmetics lipstick almost every day since it arrived. I’m loving it! It’s kind of a muted red, the name makes it sound a lot brighter than it is. A classic cool red with some kind of dirty undertone, it’s a bit vampy yet it doesn’t need a lot of work to look good. Wears for hours once applied and turns into a true rockstar stain when really worn in. It can handle a night out without touch ups, eeey!

These two looks below were worn at different times, but I’m wearing the exact same things on my face. Hello basic face look.

Cirque “Luminous Owl”

Nästa lack ur Cirques Heritage-kollektion! Luminous Owl är en total mitt-emellan-färg, på pressbilderna är den mer korallig men i verkligheten något slags mörk nude med rosakorallig underton? Jag var osäker på den innan jag hade burit den, men väl på naglarna så är den väldigt smickrande mot i alla fall min hudton! Den holografiska effekten är mjuk, i stort sett osynlig i annat ljus än sol eller stark lampa. Men jag gillar att den är lite nedtonad, den känns naturell och ljuv!

Kollektionen kommer ut i butik den 10e april, kika på Cirques stockist-lista så ser en hög länder och webshopar att handla från.

 

Next Cirque Heritage collection polish! Luminous Owl is a total inbetween colour, in the product pictures it looks more coral but in real life it’s some kind of dark nude with a pinky coral hue? I was unsure about it before wearing it, but once applied it flatters atleast my skintone very well! The holographic effect is soft, practically invisible unless you’re in bright sun or under a lamp. But I like the fact that it’s toned down, it feels natural and lovely!

The collection is available at the 10th of April, check the Cirque stockist list to see countries and webshops to buy from.

Crows Toes “Shoot The Butterfly”

I’ve blogged about it earlier and here it is again. Shoot The Butterfly from Crows Toes, two coats over a black cream. It’s a cloudy black base with micro glitter in silver and white and big hex glitters that shift between red, orange and gold. So beautiful!

Available at Llarowe.

YouTube Tip: Khloé Kardashian smokey eyes + dark lips

You can’t wear dark eyes with dark lips? Well, we all know that’s a lie.
