Pop Culture Cosmetics “Monster Mom”

Monster Mom from Pop Culture Cosmetics är ett syndlack jag egentligen inte hade tänkt köpa, men jag hjälpte en vän beställa från shopen så jag kastade med ett lack åt mig själv när vi ändå kunde dela på frakten. Lacket är skirt nudegrått med regnbågsfärgat glitter och lätt guldrosa skimmer, så himla fint!

På bilderna har jag tre lager vilket fortfarande lämnar tipparna synliga men missfärgningarna från allt tidigare lackande är helt dolt. Med nude eller grått krämlack som bas så kan man bespara sig de genomskinliga tipparna om man ogillar det, eller bara för att slippa använda lika många lager. Jag gillar den mjuka looken så när jag bär det igen så kommer jag lacka på precis samma sätt som jag gjorde nu. Förvånande sobert för att vara regnbågsglitter!

Köpt på Pop Culture Cosmetics Etsy-sida.


Monster Mom from Pop Culture Cosmetics was a sinful polish that I wasn’t planning on ordering, but I helped a friend to order from the shop so I threw this one in for myself when we were at it and could share the shipping cost. The p0lish is a sheer nude grey with rainbow glitter and slight pinkish gold shimmer, so pretty!

In these pictures I’m wearing three coats which still leaves the tips visible but the discolouration from earlier polishes is totally hidden. With a nude or grey cream polish as a base you can save yourself the translucent tips if you dislike them, and you won’t have to apply as many coats. I like the soft look so when I’ll wear it again I will do it just the way I did it now. Surprisingly fresh for being a rainbow glitter!

Bought at the Pop Culture Cosmetics Etsy page.

Lipstick organizers

A few weeks ago I bought two lipstick organizers off Ebay to be able to store my “stuff that I use all the time” or “should use a lot more often” lippies in a place where I can see them instead of.. well.. all over my apartment. A cheap way to keep stuff tidy!

Want your own? Just search for lipstick organizer on Ebay and you’ll find loads to choose from.

Smooth Talker

I have an insane crush right now, it’s on the new Marvelous Moxie glosses from BareMinerals. They’re minty and tingly, ultra-super-mega-shiny, just sticky enough to wear well and they don’t settle into lip lines which gives a perfect mirror finish. I have this neutral pink with gold shimmer called Smooth Talker that lightens my lips ever so slightly and the bright semi-transparent red called Game Changer, both are fantastic but as this one is more neutral I kind of wear it non stop right now. I want every damn shade in my stash! NOW!

Scofflaw Varnish “David Bowie’s Bulge”

I’m finally wearing David Bowie’s Bulge from Scofflaw Varnish! A dusty coral red polish with turquoise and red glitter inspired by the colour scheme on the Aladdin Sane album. Lovely! Two easily applied coats was needed. Bought at Llarowe.

The summer face

I’ve been wearing so little makeup lately, I throw some mascara on plus fix my brows a little, and if I want to get complicated I apply some light coverage mineral foundation. It’s not very fun to wear thick and heavy makeup when it just melts off my face. I love enjoying the warm weather like this when it’s possible!

What are your must haves in summer?
