IsaDora Sugar Nails “Peach Nectar”

Time for the first IsaDora Sugar Nails polish from the spring pastel collection (see quick swatches of them all here) that I decided to try on, Peach Nectar! A sparkly peachy nude with iridescent glitters. Sheerer than the previous structure polishes from IsaDora though, I needed three coats for full opacity, but it’s really pretty when it’s on!

Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick “Glamour 101″

Jag är inne i en riktig läppswatcharperiod just nu, så ni kommer få se en del fina läpprodukter ur min samling framöver! Senast var det ett nude, så då kanske vi tar ett rött denna gång?

Glamour 101 från Lime Crime är vad de själva beskriver som tegelrött, medan jag snarare vill kalla det något slags.. tranbärsrött? Det är lite dämpat och har en terracottaunderton som är så himla elegant och snygg, onekligen en ovanlig nyans av rött. Det är dessutom en aning transparent i formulan vilket jag verkligen gillar, en del av Lime Crimes läppstift har så kompakt färg att de ser kritiga ut på läpparna medan några stift ur linjen har denna lätta smygtransparenta look som jag verkligen älskar. Så kvalitén varierar en del.

Det känns lätt och mjukt på läpparna samt lämnar efter stain efter sig, så jag upplever att det biter sig kvar länge samtidigt som det inte är uttorkande. Shoppa det på Lime Crimes hemsida för $18!

 

I’m really into lip swatches right now, so you’ll see a bunch of pretty lip products from my collection during the next week or so! Since the last one I showed you was a nude shade maybe I should go for a red this time?

Glamour 101 from Lime Crime is what they call brick red, but I would rather call it something like.. cranberry red? It’s a bit muted and has a really elegant terracotta undertone, definitely an unusual shade of red. It’s also a tad translucent which I really like, some of the Lime Crime lipsticks has such a compact colour that they look chalky on the lips but some others have this juicy look to them which I really adore. So quality differs quite a bit in the range.

It feels light and soft on the lips and leaves a stain, so I find that it wears a really long time without feeling drying. Buy it at the Lime Crime website for $18!

Rouge Bunny Rouge Succulence of Dew Sheer Lipstick “Fluttering Sighs”

Rouge Bunny Rouge har ofta milslånga men fina namn på sina produkter/produktlinjer, och detta Succulence of Dew-läppstift i nyansen Fluttering Sighs kan jag inte påstå är ett undantag. Det är en skir aprikostonad nude som inte får mig att se ut som ett lik, och det lätta skimret ger en fin plumpad look.

Läppstiften i denna linje har en ovanligt mjuk formula, de smälter direkt det rör läpparna vilket ger en alldeles ljuvlig glosseffekt, men det medför även att de går av väldigt väldigt lätt. Jag bröt av mitt andra stift ur linjen redan första gången jag använde det. Aj. Till ett pris av 230 kronor (finns på Beautybay) så gör det lite ont i själen, men jag fortsätter använda dem försiktigt och får i värsta fall stuva ner dem i en liten burk och applicera med pensel, för de är så himla fina och bekväma på läpparna att det är värt det.

 

Rouge Bunny Rouge are known for having insanely long names on their products/product lines, and this Succulence of Dew lipstick in the shade Fluttering Sighs is no exception. It’s a sheer apricot toned nude that doesn’t make me look like a corpse, and the slight shimmer gives a nice plumped look.

The lipsticks in this line have a unusually soft formula, they melt as they touch the lips which gives a beautiful gloss effect but it also makes them very prone to breaking. I snapped my other lipstick from this line the first time I ever used it. Ouch. When a lipstick costs £22 (available at Beautybay) it really hurts my soul, but I’ll keep using them with caution and worst case scenario is that I’ll have to pop them in a little jar and apply them with a brush, they’re so lovely and comfortable on the lips that it’s worth it.

New nail polishes from KICKS, IsaDora & Gina Tricot

Jag har lyckats slita ut mitt minneskort till kameran (fyskiskt utslitet, jag stoppar dem i och ur minneskortsläsare/kamera tills de bokstavligen går av på mitten) så sitter för tillfället utan, tills vidare blir det lite ajfån-bloggande!

Nu tänkte jag visa er lite lack som ramlat ner i min brevlåda på sistone, nämligen några lack ur KICKS vårkollektion som är full av krämiga glada nyanser (ute i butik nu eller mycket snart), IsaDoras vårkollektion Sugar Nails Pastels som bjuder på isigt bleka pasteller i gnistrande sockerfinish (ute i butik nästa vecka) samt fyra lack ur Gina Tricots egen linje.

 

I’ve managed to wear out the memory card for my camera (physically outworn, I put them in and out of memory card readers/camera so much that they break down the middle after a while) so I haven’t got one right now, until then I’ll post some eyepheuuwnn pictures! 

I thought I could show you some polishes that have made their way here lately, some polishes from the KICKS spring collection which is packed with creamy happy shades (in stores now or very soon), the IsaDora spring collection called Sugar Nails Pastels which gives us icy pale pastels with a sparkling sugar finish (in store next week) plus four polishes from Gina Tricots own line.
