New hair!

Roger at Cybtekk did it again! He lightened my hair a shade or two and dyed it in a coppery gold tone that fades down to bright coppery ends.

Fresh office look on Lina

Today I did a brightening business look on my model Lina Lundin who was filmed for an information video about brand development. I should have taken before pictures aswell, but these will have to do! She’s wearing a neutral, slightly shimmery eye with a defined crease, glowy cheeks, a matte highlighted T-zone and super glossy lips in a muted berry colour.

KICKS Professional Shade & Illuminate Brush

Senast jag stormade in på KICKS fann jag mig förälskad i en av deras egna makeupborstar, nämligen Shade & Illuminate Brush! En kort, platt ansiktsborste som påminner om en foundationpensel, men som snarare är till för att detaljerat “skära ut” linjer i ansiktet som t.ex. highlighter under ögonbrynen/på kindbenen eller skulpterande av ansiktsdrag. Den rundade knivskarpa toppen ger penseln precision samtidigt som den applicerar på större yta än exempelvis en concealerborste. Håren är syntetiska så penseln är vegansk. Shoppa för 129 kr på KICKS.

The last time I visited KICKS I fell in love with one of their face brushes, and that one is called Shade & Illuminate Brush! A short, flat face brush that reminds me of a foundation brush, but it’s more for detailed “cutting” of lines of the face like highlighting underneath the brows/on the cheekbones or sculpting out features. The rounded sharp tip gives the brush precision at the same time that it applies on a larger surface than let’s say a concealer brush. The hairs are synthetic so the brush is vegan. Available at KICKS in Sweden.

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

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!
