IsaDora Perfect Moisture Lipstick “Rio Fever”

Med IsaDoras sommarkollektion Sunset in Rio kommer ett ljuvligt litet läppstift i varm korall, nämligen Rio Fever. Det är en pigg nyans som inte sticker i ögonen utan ser lite mer softat ut på läpparna, färgglatt men lättburet! Den är mer orange än rosa i undertonden vilket jag personligen föredrar när det kommer till koralläppar. Finns ute i butik nu, kostar 119 kr!

In the IsaDora summer collection called Sunset in Rio we find a lovely warm coral lipstick called Rio Fever. It’s a happy shade that doesn’t burn your eyes out, it looks a bit more softed on the lips, so bright yet wearable! It’s more orange toned than pink which I personally prefer when it comes to coral lips. In stores now!

Picture Polish “Frank-n-Furter”

Rött lack? Check. Referens till en av världens bästa filmer/filmkaraktärer? Check. Det fanns med andra ord mycket lite att argumentera mot när jag placerade Frank-n-Furter från Picture Polish‘s Rocky Horror Picture Show-kollektion i varukorgen hos Llarowe. Kollektionen innefattar fem lack som går i klarrött, rosarött, vinrött, mörkblått och guld, alla döpta enligt temat. Nyanserna känns spot on temamässigt men är väl inte så nytänkande att jag ramlar av stolen, så utan filmcrushen eller behov av basnyanser i bra kvalitet (eller bara problem med att inte kunna få nog av en viss färg.. host host) så förstår jag om suget är svalare.

Rocky Horror-ådran pulserar förstås glatt i mig och jag kommer på mig själv med att nynna på soundtracket medan jag skriver, och samtidigt glor jag på naglarna för de är så jävla sexy. Frankie är en superglossig kalltonad röd, perfekt för gemene pantertant och rymdtransa. Två lättlackade lager, torkar snabbt. Finishen är inte för mycket jelly vilket jag ofta upplever röda lack vara, nageltipparna lyser igenom och det ser transparent ut, ni vet. Nej, detta är snäppet mer täckande men har fortfarande den godisaktiga jellykänslan kvar som bidrar till den blankt dekadenta feelingen. Perfektion, perfektion!

 

Red polish? Check. A reference to one of the best movies/movie characters ever? Check. There was very little talk and a lot of action when I placed Frank-n-Furter from the Picture Polish Rocky Horror Picture Show colection in my cart at Llarowe. The collection contains five polishes in bright red, pinky red, wine red, dark blue and gold, all named after the theme. The shades feel spot on theme-wise but they might not be so innovative that I’m falling off my chair, so unless you have the movie crush or a need for basic shades with good quality (or just a problem with not getting enough of a single colour.. cough cough) I understand if the interest level is lower.

My Rocky Horror vein is pulsating happily and I find myself humming the soundtrack while writing, and at the same time I’m staring at my nails because they are so damn sexxeh. Frankie is a super glossy cool toned red, perfect for any leopard lady or outer space tranny. Two easily applied coats and it dried fast. The finish isn’t too much of a jelly which I often find that reds are, the tips are visible and it looks transparent, you know. No, this is more opaque but still has that candy jelly feel that keeps it looking shiny and decadent. Perfection, perfection!

Some pictures from this weekends photoshoot – behind the scenes!

This weekend I’ve worked on a big photo project for a friend of mind who sews (you will get more info + the final pics as soon as they’re done!) where I both did makeup and modeling. A hard thing to manage as I need to stand behind the camera to see what happens to the makeup, but then at the same time I need to stay focused in front of it. Haha. We were two models who wore the same pieces of unisex clothing, so we wore the same makeup looks aswell.

 

Day 1 was a series of lookbook studio shots where the look was a bit more simple and calm to not overplay the simplicity of the pictures.

I did a semi-matte reddish grunge eye with a translucent glitter on the bottom lid that catches the light depending on the angle. The skin was sculpted and bronzed, had translucent wet highlights without shimmer and freckles were applied on top to bring back the look of natural skin. Lips were dabbed with a touch of concealer mixed with lip balm and brows were kept soft.

 

Day 2 was focused on the feeling of the collection, so the pictures were a lot more artistic with harsh coloured lighting that made everything look like freaky sci-fi paintings. It’s sooo awesome, can’t wait to see the end result.

The look for this shoot was heavier than what we wore the day before but still along the same lines. This time I focused on applying products that would contrast and catch the light in an interesting way, as the colour schemes wouldn’t show up as well in the artistic lighting.

Skin was paler, even more freckled and had a heavy champagne gold highlight underneath the dewy glossiness. Eyes were bolder with a nearly black base that had soft mascara smudges, turquoise micro glitter and even more of the big round opalescent glitters that we wore the day before, now on both top and bottom lids.
