IsaDora Eye Color Bar “Surf & Sun”

IsaDoras sommarkollektion Beach Club levererar en toppenpalett vid namn Surf & Sun, kalla och lite dammiga pasteller med kontrasterande gult och beige. Formulan är silkeslen och krämig i texturen och helt utan den där kritigheten som pasteller lätt får.

Paletten är riktigt välgjord, färgerna är snygga ihop även om de kontrasterar och överlag känns den som något annorlunda än de klassiska glasspastellerna vi ser varje år. Om bara skuggan i beige var matt (= neutral nyans för globlinjen) så hade jag bjudit på högsta betyg. Snyggt jobbat IsaDora! Finns ute att köpa nu.

 

The IsaDora Beach Club collection for summer 2015 contains a beautiful eyeshadow palette called Surf & Sun, cool toned and slightly dusty pastels with a pop of yellow and a beige. The formula is wonderful with smooth creamy textures and no chalkiness at all.

This palette is really well made, the shades are great together even though they are contrasting and in all it feels like something else than the classic ice cream pastels that we see every year. If only the beige was matte (= a neutral crease shade) I would have given this the highest of points. Great work IsaDora! Out in stores now.

I can’t wait to do a look with the peacock shades in the middle.. Especially that periwinkle blue.

Swatched on a thin layer of foundation. Just imagine how they would look over a white base! Kaboom!

Some awesome eye pencils

Jag har något slags grej för ögonpennor. De vatten- och kladdfasta som går att bara kladda på och sen inte tänka på under resten av dagen. De är så himla lätthanterade då de inte behöver precision, bara applicera, sudda ut och stick. Grymma för en färgkick när en symmetrisk eyelinervinge eller perfekt läppstiftsapplicering inte är på tapeten.

I detta inlägg visar jag bara tre märken/linjer utan att det ens var planerat. Jag har höga krav på ögonpennor och dessa tre har visat sig vara vettiga. Jag sträcker mig efter dem under vardagarna och det betyder att jag vänder mig till samma linjer när jag är sugen på att shoppa eyeliners!

 

I have a thing for eye pencils. The water and smudgeproof kind that you just apply and don’t have to think about during the rest of the day. They’re easy to handle as you don’t need any precision, just smudge and go. Perfect for a kick of colour when couldn’t bother thinking about sharp eyeliner wings or precise lipstick application.

I’m only showing three three brands/lines here, and I didn’t plan it at all. I have high expectations on eye pencils and these three lines have proved themselves good. I end up reaching for them on a daily basis, and that means I turn to the same lines when I’m in the mood for eye pencil shopping!

Purple Blaze

I’ve worn this eye pencil a lot lately and every time loads of people ask me what it is. NYX Slide-On Pencil in Purple Blaze is the answer! One lady told me how happy she was to see a colour like this because it reminded her of what she loved to wear in the eighties. So sweet!

Today I paired this bright metallic blurple (blue/purple, best word fuse ever) with apricot on my cheeks and lips. They really enhance each other beautifully!
