Thierry Mugler Angel Eau Sucrée 2015

I have posted about my Thierry Mugler Angel collection before, and of course it has expanded since we last saw it. Eau Sucrée 2014 (a silvery blue metallic bottle with sugar texture) was in my collection post, now I have the Eau Sucrée 2015 (clear blue bottle with the same sugar texture) too!

The notes in the original Angel EdP are mainly sour red berries, honey, vanilla, caramel, cocoa and patchouli. A serious smack in the face. In both Eau Sucrée versions which are EdT’s we get red fruits sorbet, caramelized meringue, vanilla and patchouli instead, so a lot sweeter and lighter than the original. The 2014 version of Eau Sucrée was more sugary and meringue-like, 2015 is more bright and fruity. Quite damn far away from the original smack in the face, but hey, I need my Angel fix. Ok?

My bottle is from Grand Parfymeri here in Gothenburg.

The perfume comes in the classic star shaped bottle, this time with sugar textured clear blue glass.

Nic Cage churning butter one crisp thanksgiving morn

I’m repeating myself: Viseart Neutral Matte Eye Palette 01! So versatile! Today I’m wearing all the warmest shades in a messy smokey eye with the soft black as a smokey liner. Plus the lipgloss with the funniest name ever, still can’t handle it.

Modernist

Face of le day! I’m using the Viseart Neutral Matte Eye Palette 01 that I showed you yesterday. On the lid a pale peachy beige, the soft black as a smokey eyeliner and a dark brown on my lower lash line. The quality of this palette is just amazing.

The lips are shiny for once, I rarely wear lipgloss but today I did! I topped a matte orange red lip tint with some sheer coral gloss, 100% cartoon lips plus no need to worry for smudges all over my face. Haha. I love the look of glossy lips and matte eyes combined!

Viseart Neutral Matte Eye Palette 01 & Editorial Brights Palette 08

Har ni hört snacket om skuggpaletterna från Viseart ännu? Inte helt oväntat om du makeupnördat på sistone. Viseart är ett franskt märke som riktar sig till makeupartister, idén är enkla och icke överflödiga förpackningar med väl genomtänkt innehåll. Precis så jag uppskattar makeup mest.

Jag går alltid fram och tillbaka mellan paletter när jag är ute efter matta skuggor, ingenting har ännu burit på ALLT i både nyans- och kvalitetsväg. Vips var det dags att testa dessa och jag kunde inte bli mer nöjd. Formulan är silkig och väldigt medgörlig, en minimaaal hudlik lyster räddar skuggorna från att upplevas platta och kritiga. Viseart finns att köpa på love-makeup.co.uk. Rätt maffiga priser men med toppkvalla och lågt styckepris per skugga är det värt att kika på.

 

Have you heart about the Viseart eyeshadow palettes yet? Not strange if you’ve been makeup nerding lately. Viseart is a french makeup brand aimed towards makeup artists, the idea is simple packaging filled with well thought through content. Just the way I love makeup the most.

I always go back and forth between palettes when I’m up for mattes, nothing has yet carried EVERYTHING both in shade and quality. Then tadaa, it was time to try these, and I couldn’t be happier with them. The formula is silky and very easy to handle, it has a sliiiight skin-like sheen which keeps the shadows from appearing flat and chalky. Viseart is available at love-makeup.co.uk. A steep price point but with great quality and low price per single eyeshadow it’s worth a peek.

viseart neutral matte eye palette 01 & editorial brights palette 08

 

Matte Eye Palette 01 är kultklassikern med matta neutrala nyanser i varma, neutrala och kalla toner hela vägen från off-vitt till mjukt svart. Använd till ögonsmink (lika väl milt som stenhårt), ifyllning av ögonbryn, att highlighta och skulptera med eller varför inte gömma en utväxt. Så otroligt användbar! Älskar att paletten innehåller grått och rostfärgat, de lite udda dragen ger den neutrala färgskalan lite spice.

Matte Eye Palette 01 is the cult classic with matte shades in warm, neutral and cool tones all the way from off white to a soft black. Use for eye makeup (soft aswell as super dark), filling in eyebrows, highlighting and contouring or why not to hide your roots. So insanely useful! I love how the palette contains both grey and a rust colour, the slightly odd features gives the neutral colour scheme some spice.

Editorial Brights Palette 08 är nyare än ovan nämnda, en helvild regnbågspalett med de mest grundläggande färgerna. Bra att ha både för skrikig editorialmakeup och för mer neutrala looker med en dutt färg. Det låter konstigt att säga med tanke på alla paletter som släpps nu för tiden, men att hitta en regnbågspalett som faktiskt känns genomtänkt och logisk rent färgteoretiskt är väldigt svårt. Här kan varje enskild nyans matchas sömlöst med minst halva paletten vilket verkligen ökar det kreativa spelrummet.

Editorial Brights Palette 08 is newer than the one mentioned above, a totally wild rainbow palette with the most basic bright shades. Good for both insane editorial makeup looks and for more neutral looks with a pop of colour. It might sound strange as there are so many palettes released at the moment, but finding a rainbow palette that feels well thought through and logic colour theory-wise is very hard. Here each and every shade can be matched seamlessly with at least half the palette which gives serious creative freedom.

Hidden gems: Products I use every day but rarely show you

Some products are trusty staples for me, you see them in the product lists for my makeup looks all the time but I have never really talked about them. I thought I should gather them all in one post and let you take a closer look.

Some of them are quite battered but that’s what happens with loved cosmetics (I’m looking at you, dog massacred pencil)!

hidden gems

 

By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Concealer – 1 Fresh Fair

Thin liquid concealer with medium coverage. Has a WONDERFUL texture that looks just like skin, doesn’t crease under my eyes with a dab of powder on top. Steep price but totally worth it. 1 Fresh Fair is a peachy pink which neutralizes undereyes gorgeously without making them appear whitened. No reverse panda eyes for me thanks. Correcting the purple/blue/green tones without brightening looks really soft and “no-makeup-y”!

Too Faced Absolutely Flawless Concealer – Vanilla

A super thick full coverage concealer, perfect for spot concealing. This one I use allll the time but even forget to mention in my product lists. Have used it for eh.. seven years?

Idun Minerals Inliner – Sand

A pale beige eye pencil for the inner rim of the eye. I have very red waterlines so I basically use it daily as a waterline concealer.

Illamasqua Masquara – Raven

The mascara that gives me everything I wish for, it works for every look. Length, volume, fluffiness, drama! It’s water resistant so it doesn’t smudge easily but it isn’t waterproof which means it’s easy to remove. Love the wand too.

Illamsqua Brow & Lash Gel

A clear (I promise, it was clear a while ago..) brow gel that combs the hairs in place. Not crunchy, not overly shiny, stays all day. The wand is slim so it doesn’t get gunk all over your face when you comb your brows with it.

INGLOT Eyeshadow – 376

A creamy and super pigmented matte eyeshadow bordering grey/black/brown/purple. Perfect for dark eyebrows or as a soft eyeliner.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Impalpable Finishing Powder – Diaphanous

The best powder ever created? Super finely milled and invisible on the skin. It’s like a classic HD powder (think MUFE HD, By Terry Hyaluronic etc.) but it doesn’t feel tight and weird on my skin like those do on me. Diaphanous feels smoothing, plumping and perfecting! Doesn’t get flat matte either so not the best if you need heavy duty oil control, but it sets makeup beautifully.

Manasi Makeup Lyster Cream Bronzer

A reddish brown cream bronzer with a strong, smooth shimmer. Any time my skin looks nice and glowy (or I look awake at all) this is why. Looks really scary in the tub but it goes on looking just like sunkissed plump skin! No fake sparkliness or orange splotches, it looks so natural that it works wonders even on bare skin. I have a tub in my MUA kit aswell (less battered than this one) and I would never do a tanned look without it, it works on everyone.
