Be my Valentines!

Here are my worst beauty related cravings at the moment, and what other time of the year is more perfect to spread some love other than Valentines day? Be my beauty product Valentines!

 

 

China Glaze Avant Garden collection

The China Glaze spring collection always seems to be my favourite nail polish release every year, and this one is no exception. I want every single shade! Available at Transdesign.

Lit Cosmetics Glitters

I have a serious addiction to Lit glitters and instead of craving dark foxy shades I’m now totally into pale ice cream shades to apply softly over everyday makeup looks. Shades shown: Lemon Tart, Rainbow Ride, Soilar Blast, Boogie Wonderland, Hawaii 5-0. Available at Lit Cosmetics.

Montale Black Oud EdP

A deep medicinal gothic rose to anti-match those sweet pastels. Colour blocking scent style! Available at Aus Liebe Zum Duft.

Cozzette Brushes

I’m totally interested in trying this brush line out, high quality vegan brushes with a serious approach. Me like! The face brushes seem too good to be true. Available at Cozzette.

Make Up Geek Gel Liner in Electric

Is it as bright as I’m hoping? Is it as matte as I’m hoping? Hope so. I can’t get enough blinding shades of blue! Available at Makeup Geek.

Aedes de Venustas EdP

Zingy rhubarb, red berries and tomato leaf, the mineralic burn of carbonated water. This one is amazing in the summer heat and I’d be delighted to own a bottle of this beauty one day. Available at Aus Liebe Zum Duft.

Serge Lutend Bornéo 1834 EdP

Deep, dry cocoa and patchouli. Thanks to Julia I finally got myself a sample of this, and my hope for a new love was confirmed. Oh baby, I want to kiss myself wearing this, it’s so deep and cozy. Available at Serge Lutens.

Too Faced La Crème Lip Cream

I’ve tried two of these before, and Naked Dolly came to be the only pale nude that I’ve ever been able to rock with confidence. Now I want to try some more neutrals, these are Cinnamon Kiss, Honey Bear, Nude Beach and Spice Spice Baby. Available at Beauty Bay.

Byredo Fragranced Candle in Apocalyptic

I’ve walked past this scented candle about a zillion times at NK in here Sweden, smelling it hoping to finally do the final kill, the card swipe. It hasn’t happened yet. However, it smells the way that I imagine an old English men’s club smelling, which is and edge that I would love to give my living room. Available at Byredo.

Happy Booster

Dagens makeup började med brun skugga, mascara och lite bronzer på kinderna. Sedan eskalerade det till att jag testade ett rouge. Och sedan blev jag sugen på ett läppstift. Ibland blir det så, eller hur?

På kinderna har jag (bortsett från bronzern) Happy Booster från Physician’s Formula i färgen Natural, ett rouge som enligt företaget själva innehåller växtmojs som ska härma endorfiner och därmed göra en gladare. Jag gissar att det är stora ord som egentligen bara handlar om den döfina uppenbarelsen. Jag äger helt klart inget finare rouge, och jag tvekar inte en sekund på att det gör mig glad!

Oooch på läpparna då, där har jag 411 från Nouba som jag lite snabbt visade på handen i förra veckan. Många av er ville se det på läpparna så här är det!

 

Todays makeup started with a brown eyeshadow, mascara and some bronzer on my cheeks. Then it escalated and I tried on a blush. And then I felt like wearing a lipstick. It happens now and then, doesn’t it?

On my cheeks I’m wearing (apart from the blusher) Happy Booster from Physician’s Formula in the colour Natural, a blush that according to the brand contains some plant stuff that mimics endorphins which will make you happier. I’m convinced that those are just big words and that it’s mainly is about the lovely visual part. I don’t own a prettier blush, and it definitely makes me happy!

Aaaand on my lips I’m wearing 411 from Nouba which I showed you on the back of my hand last week. many of you wanted to see it on the lips so  here it is!

LUSH Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it

Under ett besök på LUSH härom dagen skymtade mitt öga 50%-klistermärken på en hel del produkter. Jag gick hem och grunnade ett par dagar och gick idag tillbaka för att köpa upp mig på det jag och sambon massförbrukar (duschtvålen Dirty och schampot I Love Juicy) när en del ändå var så billigt.

Jag såg till min lycka att den söta lilla lunchlådan vid namn Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it också var till halva priset (ca 230 kr), glädjetjut! Denna har jag spanat på sedan den kom ut innan jul, både för att den är så fin och för att den innehåller intressanta produkter. En del har jag testat och gillat och resten är jag nyfiken på. Allt i den är veganskt! Presentförpackningarna från LUSH brukar ha väldigt prisvärt innehåll och denna är inget undantag, i lådan hittar du:

Each Peach Massage Bar
You’ve Been Mangoed Bath Melt
Miranda Soap
The Comforter Bubble Bar (mini)
Blackberry Bath Bomb
Sparkle Toothy Tabs
Karma Komba Shampoo Bar

 

While visiting LUSH a few days ago my little eye spotted 50% stickers on some products, so I went home  to think for a few days and today I went back and stocked up on the stuff that me and my boyfriend uses all the time (Dirty shower gel and I Love Juicy shampoo) when it was so cheap.

I luckily saw that the sweet little lunch box called Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it also was 50% off, wohooo! I’ve been eyeing this one since it came out before christmas, both because it’s so pretty and because it contains interesting products. Some I’ve tried and liked and the rest I’m interested in trying. Everything in it is vegan friendly! The LUSH gift boxes usually have great value and this is no exception. Products are listed above plus in the picture below!

My name is Viola Holmgren and I've been representing Swedish beauty bloggerism (yes. we're a cult) since 2008. I focus on cruelty free beauty and I love the feeling of finding cool products that have gone under the radar.

Makeup doesn't have rules. The only person who decides what's right or wrong and if you're wearing it or not is you, and that's where my job as a blogger comes in handy. Use my experience as a guide or an inspiration towards finding your own way.
