Lernberger Stafsing Dryclean – now in Dark!

Jag har sagt det förr och jag säger det igen, Lernberger Stafsing Dryclean är bästa torrschampot! Det suger upp överflödiga oljor i hårbotten och skapar skönt strävt rufs med stadga, precis vad jag brukar vilja ha den där sista dagen innan tvätt. Antingen för att kunna sätta upp det i en knut med bra volym eller bara för att ha det kaotiskt och utsläppt. Detta torrschampo har jag använt i några år nu, sedan lanseringen 2011 till och med, och äntligen har de släppt det i nyansen Dark för oss med mörkt hår! Originalet är vitt och riskerar liksom många andra torrschampon att bli lite “dammigt” i färgen om man använt för mycket, så jag tackar och bockar för en uppgradering av min vardagsfavorit!

Finns att köpa på bl.a. Apoteket AB, Doc Morris, Åhléns och KICKS, 169 kr för 300 ml.

 

I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again, Lernberger Stafsing Dryclean is the best dry shampoo out there! It absorbs excess oil in the roots and creates a voluminous texturized finish, just what I want the day before washing my hair. I’ve been using this dry shampoo for a few years now, since the launch in 2011 even, and finally it’s released in the shade Dark for us dark haired! The original is white which like many other dry shampoos risk looking dusty in colour if you use too much, so I’m very happy for this updated version of my everyday favourite! Not sure if it’s available outside of Sweden.

Re-post, 1920′s flapper look

Right now we’re renovating basically an entire apartment at once, so I’m a little off at the moment. Let’s look at a crazy look from last spring instead!

 

20talets ögonmakeuper var förvånansvärt osmickrande. De sotiga ögonskuggorna placerades högt upp i inre ögonvrån och slokande i yttre vilket gav en trött blick. Ögonbrynen plockades tunna och raka (jag täckte över mina bryn och måla på nya. Dessa är egentligen mer 30- än 20tal). Hyn var ljus, rosigt rouge placerades långt in på kinden och läpparna var plutigt rosenknoppsformade, ofta i mörka/intensiva färger. Såhär vill jag se ut för evigt!

The 1920′s eye makeup was surprisingly unflattering. The smokey eyeshadows were placed high on the inner corner and droopy on the outer which gives a tired look. The eyebrows were plucked thin and straight (I covered my brows and painted new ones on, these are actually more 1930′s than 20′s). Skin was fair, rosy blush was placed far in towards the nose and lips were rosebud shaped, often in dark/intense colours. I want to look like this for ever!

Swatching: IsaDora Color Chock collection – lip products

Med höstens Color Chock-kollektion från IsaDora kommer en hög roliga läpprodukter, bland annat Glossy Lip Stain som är ett gloss med stainfunktion, alltså när glansen gått ur så sitter färgen kvar på läpparna. I det stora hela är de ett djurtestfritt och budgetvänligt alternativ till motsvarigheterna från YSL och L’Oréal. Äntligen!! Jag gillar dem som tusan och hoppas att utbudet som nu ligger på 5 nyanser utökas allt eftersom.

Utöver lip stainsen så kommer även ett vanligt gloss, ett stift och en ny penna med kollektionen. Varenda en är superb. Vi kikar på alltihop här nedan!

 

With the Colour Chock collection for this fall IsaDora released a bunch of fun lippies, for example Glossy Lip Stain which is a staining gloss, so when the shine wears off the colour is still there. Overall it’s a cruelty free and budget friendly alternative to the versions from YSL and L’Oréal. Finally!! I like them as heck and hope that the range which is at 5 shades now will get bigger.

Apart from the lip stains there’s also a regular gloss, a lipstick and one new lip pencil. All of them are superb. Let’s take a look at them all!

IsaDora Multi Vitamin Gloss “Raisin” (119 SEK)

A plummy rose colour that slightly deepens the lip colour without making a huge change. A perfect semi sheer lip colour for fall, or a great shade if you want to get used to wearing darker colours. These glosses aren’t overly sticky but wear quite well. Said to be unscented but smells sweet? Hmm..

IsaDora Color Chock Glossy Lip Stain – Chic Coral (129 SEK)

A vibrant pinky-coral-red shade that goes on really smooth and glossy. These ones are also said to be unscented but these definitely smell like caramel candy.

IsaDora Color Chock Glossy Lip Stain – Foxy Fuchsia (129 SEK)

A purple tinged pink, not quite as easily applied as the coral shade but with a little work it’s wonderful.

IsaDora Perfect Matt Lipstick – Deco Rose (119 SEK)

Probably my favourite from the whole collection, a dusty rosy red lipstick that goes on smooth and soft for being matte, definitely an original shade in my lipstick drawer. In this blog post I wore it dabbed on as a stain, so it looks good both full on and applied sheer!

IsaDora Perfect Lipliner – Fuchsia (69 SEK)

A longwearing matte lip pencil that’s 100% kiss/smudge proof. It glides on evenly and doesnt tug much for being waterproof. It’s a perfect jewel tone pink that looks super hot for fall.

Rich & Famous

You know how it is, you sit down, smack a hysterical makeup on your face, take pictures, sit down to edit them and.. the laptop screen won’t cooperate. Oh well, we’ll see how it goes! Right now I’m stealing my boyfriends computer and praying to FSM that my laptop will work later.

So, todays look went batshit crazy and I’m actually liking it! Gold glitter, inky black lips and wild brows feels great after a long time without much makeup at all.
