IsaDora “Coral Crush”

Okej, jag har fallit som en fura för glittriga strukturlack. Jag fick ett pressutskick från IsaDora med tre nyanser varav en (röda Love Crush) föll mig i smaken, och vips sprang jag ut och köpte på mig ytterligare två färger (79 kr/st) för att jag helt enkelt inte kunde hålla mig. Korallguldiga Coral Crush var den jag spontant tokälskade så den var självklar, och jag har även klarblå Pool Crush kvar att testa. Muuuums! Skulle ni tycka att det var kul att se flera av dem i rad här i bloggen? För jag har mer jag kan visa redan nu.

Sugar Crush-lacken från IsaDora är alltså glittriga lack som torkar matt, de känns som sandpapper! Lite läskig känsla till en början men man vänjer sig snabbt. Vill man blinga upp dem mer så drar man på överlack, men för att behålla den tänkta strukturen så går man alltså utan. Två lager lack har behövts för samtliga nyanser och de har torkat snabbt för att vara utan överlack.


Okay, I totally fell for glittery structure polishes. I got three shades from IsaDora to try from which I loved one (red Love Crush), and then I just ran out and bought two more colours just because I couldn’t contain myself. Coral golden Coral Crush was my big love from the line so that one was obvious, and I’ve also got bright blue Pool Crush left to try. Yuuuum! Would you like to see more of these in a row on here? Because I’ve got more that I can show now already.

These Sugar Crush polishes from IsaDora are glittery polishes that dry matte, they feel like sandpaper! Quite a freaky feeling at the start but you get used to it quickly. If you want to bling it up further you can apply a top coat, but to keep the cool structure you wear it without. Two coats was needed for all these shades and they dried quickly for being worn without a topcoat.

Illamasqua Highlighter Brush + Blusher Brush

Illamasqua brushes are of insane quality! The synthetic fibers are soft as silk and puffy as bunny butts. They apply powders as well as creams beautifully and they’re not bad at blending either. If I had the money I would buy the entire brush line, I’m that sold on it!

Available at their webshop.

I haven’t used Tremble blush from Illamasqua in a really long time and the other day I found it in a drawer. Bliss and glory! It’s a beautiful pale cool orange (leaning pink) which looks GREAT with a sheer orange lip.

I also tried a new mascara, it was hideous. Smudges/runs from any little moisture and clumps like crazy.
