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.

IsaDora Sugar Crush “Pool Crush”

Here’s what I’m wearing on my nails at the moment, Pool Crush from the IsaDora Sugar Crush line. Matte glitters that are gritty on the nails. I really love this line, and this bright blue shade is no exception! Two coats was needed for full opacity and it dried semi-quickly. Worn without topcoat for the gritty look.

My hair routine

Louise asked me to show a picture of my full hair as it always shows a little bit in pictures, so here it is! Or, as well as I was able to photograph it myself..

In these pictures it’s just air dried with no products which is how I mostly wear it, sometimes I run a little aloe vera gel through it to tame the frizz and define the curls. If it’s oily I use Lernberger Stafsing Dryclean dry shampoo.

I wash with LUSH Karma Komba and condition with Clearly Natural Essentials Natural Conditioner which is a great combo for my oily roots and dry ends. I always have a problem finding combinations that won’t make any of those problems worse, but this seems to work wonders!

The dye is a total mashup, the light ends are a mixture of last years bleach (I wore pale brown ashy hair back then), a warm non-permanent dye and this years summer sun. The overall warm colour is partly that non-permanent dye and some warm permenant dye for my roots. The simple tip: Go to Cybtekk, they’re the best.
