IsaDora Sugar Crush nails for fall 2013

New Sugar Crush polishes from IsaDora! I love these fall shades to bits.. I’m not crazy about the gold shade but the rest of them are fab. Most of them needed 3 coats but they dried quickly.

79 SEK a piece, in Swedish stores this week.

Metal Crush, Wine Crush, Emerald Crush

 Chameleon Crush, Gold Crush, Black Crush

Metal Crush, Wine Crush, Emerald Crush, Chamelon Crush, Gold Crush, Black Crush. No topcoat

Off the Beaten Path

Idag hittade jag en skitbra läppstift/rouge-kombination! Jag tycker oftast att det är det svåraste med vardagslooker, att hitta läpprodukter och rouge som funkar ihop utan att varken skapa en kontrast eller smälta ihop till en monoton blobb. Av dessa två produkter så har rouget (NARS Boys Don’t Cry) en korallig underton och läppstiftet (NYX Off The Beaten Path, duttat på för en naturlig stain-look) en rosa underton, men de fungerar så himla bra ihop!

Utöver rouge/läppkombon så provar jag en ny foundation, IsaDora Wake Up Make Up, den verkar onekligen lovande! Den har mediumtäckning och ska verka utslätande och upplyftande på trötthetstecken. SPF 20. Jag skriver ihop en grundligare recension om ni är intresserade.

 

Today I found a great lipstick/blush combo! I often think that’s the hardest part of  the soft everyday looks, finding lippies and blushes that match without creating a contrast or melting together into a montone lump. In this combination the blush (NARS Boys Don’t Cry) has a coral tint and the lippie (NYX Off The Beaten Path, here dabbed on as a soft stain) a pink tint, but they work incredibly well together!

Apart from the blush/lip combo I’m trying a new foundation, IsaDora Wake Up Make Up, it seems really promising! It’s got a medium coverage and it’s supposed to soften and brighten signs of tiredness. SPF 20. Will make a more in depth review if you’re interested.

KICKS “Sugar Cane”

The first Sugar Lacquer from KICKS that I’m wearing on my nails (see the rest swatched here) is Sugar Cane, a nude shade with a very delicate peachy golden sheen. It looks just amazing on the nails, sophisticated and neutral but with that interesting rough texture. Two coats was needed and it dried very quickly for being worn without topcoat.

I think this is my favourite from the three shades I have, I will wear this one a lot in the future! Available at KICKS stores for 79 SEK.

Game Changer

Here’s a smokey eye done with the Highlands eyeshadow palette from IsaDoras fall collection, and on my lips I’m wearing Game Changer from the BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie lipgloss line. I adore these longwearing vinyl-esque lip tingling glosses (see a lighter shade on me here).. Two great products worth checking out!
