Miel Doré

Here’s the exact type of look that I mentioned in the post about this lipstick! No pinky tones on the skin, eyes or lips, only this warm golden hue all over and soft blackened eye makeup.

Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical Lipstick “Miel Doré”

På sistone har jag rotat runt tusen gånger i gömmorna, jag vill hitta något lätt och karamellfärgat/honungsgyllene att ha på läpparna! Jag fick långsamt inse att det inte kommer ske, för jag äger visst inget sådant. Eh? Så jag har nu provat Sheer Botanical Lipstick från Yves Rocher i färgen Miel Doré, och den är precis vad jag önskat! Skir, skön på läpparna och i helt rätt färg. Den går såå bra med den typen av makeup jag gillat på sistone – mycket bronzer, highlighter, matchande läppar och suddig svart kajal på ögonen, dvs då nude-rosa kan kännas för kallt i ton. Perfekt när jag bara behöver kasta på något alltså, blir inte fulbrun mot min spökhud heller eftersom den är så skir och dessutom är ljusare än denna typ av färger ofta är.

Stiftet ser nästan frostig ut i förpackningen (hurv) men blir bara fräscht lystergivande på läpparna så räds ej, frosthaters! Döljer torrflagor gör det också, nu börjar det ju vara den tiden på året igen. Håller inte så länge på läpparna men who cares när spegel inte ens behövs till omappliceringen. Mmmm, jag älskar denna linje läppstift! Shoppa på Yves Rochers hemsida eller i butik.

 

Lately I’ve gone through my drawers multiple times, I want to find something sheer and caramel/honey golden toned to wear on my lips! I slowly had to realize that it wouldn’t happen, because I didn’t seem to own one. Huh? So I tried the Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical Lipstick in the colour Miel Doré, and it’s exactly what I wanted! Sheer, comfortable on the lips and in the perfect colour. It goes sooo well with the kind of looks that I’ve been wrearing lately – lots of bronzer, highlighter, matching lips and black smudged eyeliner on the eyes, in other words when pinky nudes can feel too cool toned. Perfect for times when I just want to throw something on and go, it doesn’t turn ugly and brown against my ghost skin either because of the sheerness and that it’s lighter than shades like this often are.

The lipstick looks frosted in the packaging (shudder) but it just turns into a lovely lustre on the lips so don’t be afraid, frost haters! It hides dry flakes aswell, now that we’re moving towards that time of the year. It doesn’t stay on the lips very long but who cares when it’s so easy to reapply that you don’t even need a mirror. Mmm, I love this line of lipsticks! Shop at your local Yves Rocher website or store.

LUSH made a false start, time for Christmas!

Hur tidigt är det okej att starta julen egentligen? LUSH tycker NU! Idag lanserades alltså årets julprodukter (samt halloweenprodukterna!) i butik, både gamla klassiker och lite nya roliga grejer. Jag ÄLLLSKAR kroppskrämen Celebrate som doftar sötsyrlig apelsin och lime så den fick givetvis följa med hem, likaså godissöta duschtvålsklassikern Snow Fairy (skriker Banana Skids tycker jag). Den är egentligen sanslöst långt ifrån min smak men är faktiskt plojig nog för att komma undan med det. Shoppa på Lush.se eller i närmsta butik! Göteborgare, kom in på Fredsgatan och säg hej! Där är jag ju nu för tiden.

How early is it okay to start Christmas? LUSH says NOW! Today this years holiday products (and the halloween stuff!) came out in Swedish stores, both old classics and some new fun stuff. I LLLOVE the Celebrate body lotion that smells like fizzy sweet orange and lime so it was an obvious keeper, also the candy sweet shower gel classic Snow Fairy (screams of Banana Skids in my opinion, did those exist outside of Sweden during the 90′s?). It’s totally not my usual style but it’s hilarious enough to get away with it.
