The Balm Balm Jovi Rockstar Palette

Jag har suktat efter den i två år, nu är den min! Balm Jovi Rockstar Palette från The Balm är universums töntigaste palett fylld med produkter lika snygga som namnen är tacky. I love it. Temat är alltså rock, och med ögonskuggsnamn som Lead Zeppelin och Alice Copper så kan jag inte låta bli att guilty pleasure-skratta. Roligast är krämprodukterna för läpp och kind vid namn Lip Sync Playback i färgerna Milly och Vanilly. AV. LI. DER.

Skuggorna är uppbrutna i tre vertikala spalter med fyra skuggor i varje, Heavy Metal som är skimriga och metalliska, Classical som är matta neutrala och Alternative som är mer åt det skimrigt drömska hållet. Skapa en look baserad på vald spalt eller mixa hejvilt!

Formulan är silkeslen och välpigmenterad på nästan alla produkter, Lead Zeppelin och Adagio är lite torrare men med en primer så löses det problemet.

Finns att shoppa på brittiska Feelunique eller Pinkroom här i Göteborg.

 

I’ve wanted it for two years, now it’s ime! TheBalm Balm Jovi Rockstar Palette is the dorkiest palette on the planet, filled with products that look as good as the names are tacky. Love it. So the theme is rock, and with eyeshadow names like Lead Zeppelin and Alice Copper I can’t help but laugh with guilty pleasure. Funniest are the lip/cheek cream products called Lip Sync Playback in the colours Milly and Vanilly. I. DIED.

The eyeshadows are broken up into three columns with four shades in each, Heavy Metal which are jewel toned shimmers and metallics, Classical which are matte neutrals and Alternative which are more shimmery and dreamy. Create a look based on your favourite column or mix them up!

The formula is silky and pigmented on almost all products, Lead Zeppelin and Adagio are a bit drier but with a primer that would be solved.

You can get it at British Feelunique amongst other webshops.

The outer packaging splits at the bottom, which means that there’s a flap over the cream products. Awesome idea as powders always get stuck in creme products when put together in a palette.

The content in all. 12 shadows, 1 highlighter, 1 blush and 2 lip/cheek creams.

The eyeshadows are split into three columns, everyone with a certain theme. I love the mix of undertones, finishes and style even though they go well together.

The highlighter, blush and lip/cheek creams at the bottom. Very useful shades, but maybe not too exciting.

Going to London!

Tomorrow I’m leaving Gothenburg for a trip to London with a bunch of beauty friends, held by Daisy Beauty. You can follow me on Instagram @Killercolours for updates!

Until then: Packing makeup bags like a crazy person. Which lipsticks will I need? Well all of them, in case I miss something while I’m there. Duh.

Sleek MakeUP Eye Dust “Dirty”

En till gammal favorit som rotats fram! Den lösa ögonskuggan Dirty från Sleek MakeUP är som kakaofärgad folie i puderform. Biter fast i huden utan hjälp av primer och lägger sig som en spegel på ögonlocket. Billig med sina $4.49, alltså dryga trettio spänn, och kvalitet som hade mätt upp med det femdubbla priset. Kan rasa ner en aning på kinderna när du applicerar som så ofta med lösa skuggor, men inget hysteriskt. Skit i att den inte är lika praktisk som pressade skuggor, den är så snygg att du inte kommer bry dig! Shoppa på Sleek MakeUPs hemsida.

Another old favourite that I’ve pulled out from the darkness of my makeup drawers! Sleek MakeUP Eye Dust in Dirty is like cocoa coloured powdered foil. Sticks to the skin without a primer and looks like a mirror on the eyelid. Dirt cheap aswell. Can fall down onto the cheeks when you’re applying which is a normal problem with loose eyeshadows, but nothing insane. Sure, it’s not as practical as a pressed shadow, but it’s so gorgeous that you won’t care a bit! Shop at the Sleek MakeUP website.

In the jar the shadow almost looks like a rough glitter.

Swatched on bare skin, no primer. The effect of it looking whitened where the light hits it and super smokey elsewhere is so cool on the eyelid. 3D deluxe!

Shinyyyyy!!

An old look of mine (hello bangs!) where I applied Sleek MakeUP Eye Dust in Dirty all over the lid and blended it out. It’s like three eyeshadows in one!

Hair on POINT

If hair can have a best friend mine has Roger. Probably old news for those of you who have read my blog for a while. This time he cut quite a bit off to get a fresh start, gave me slightly deeper brown roots and dyed the rest a bright orange copper. All using Davines.

I <3 Cybtekk!

Welcome back old favourite: Malin+Goetz Peppermint Body Scrub!

Jag ÄLSKAR känslan av att prova en gammal favorit och bli kär på nytt! Peppermint Body Scrub från Malin+Goetz är kanske inte den skrubbigaste av skrubbar, men garanterat den mintigaste. Flufsa runt de milda skrubbkornen i det mjuka löddret och känn hur kroppen blir som på iiiiis när du sköljer med varmt vatten. Världens skönaste efter en lång dag eller på trötta muskler. Finns att shoppa på t.ex. Eleven.se och NK.

I LOVE the feeling when trying an old favourite out an falling in love all over again! Peppermint Body Scrub from Malin+Goetz might not be the scrubbiest of scrubs, but easily the mintiest. Swoosh around the mild scrubbies in a fluffy lather and feel how your skin turns to ice when you wash it off with warm water. The best thing ever after a long day or on sore muscles.
