Master Chief

Senaste dagarna har jag spelat helt osunt mycket Halo, så dagens make fick bli Master Chief style. Fattar ni att highlightern i inre ögonvrån, som jag plockade totalt på känn, visade sig heta Halo? Haha jag dör.

 

I’ve been playing an insane amount of Halo the last couple of days, so todays makeup is Master Chief style. Can you grasp the fact that the inner corner highlighter, which I totally picked by gut feeling, actually was called Halo? Haha I died.

Scofflaw Varnish “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot från Scofflaw Varnish föll jag för direkt jag lade ett öga på det, hur det nu gick till eftersom jag brukar vara rätt sval när det kommer till turkost på naglarna. Inte att jag ogillar, men det brukar helt enkelt inte förtrolla mig. Här var det kombinationen turkost, rött och vitt som vann över mig, turkost och rött är en av mina favoritfärgkombinationer! En hysterisk mix som ändå är lätt att hålla elegant.

Detta lack krävde tre lager för att basen skulle vara helt opak, och med det blir det ett vackert djup i glittret som skiner igenom. De vita glittren som ligger djupare blir ljust turkosa medan de röda glittren blir nästintill svarta eftersom grönt och rött är kontrastfärger och slår ut varandra. Överst ligger pyttesmå partiklar av kopparguld och glittrar. En fantastiskt rolig liten mix! Lacket är köpt på Llarowe.

 

I fell in love with Whiskey Tango Foxtrot from Scofflaw Varnish as soon as I saw it, however that happened as I’m often so-so when it comes to turquoise nails. Not that I dislike it, but it rarely enchants me. This time it was the combination of turquoise, red and white that got me, turquoise and red is one of my favourite colour combinations! An insane combinaton that still is easy to keep looking elegant.

This polish needed three coats to get the base fully opaque, and it gets a beautiful depth from the glitters that shine through. The white glitters that lie deeper down look light turquoise while the red glitters almost turn black because red and green are complementary colours which cancel each other out. On top there are small sparkly particles of coppery gold. A fantastic little mix! Bought at Llarowe.

Things I’m curious about right now

Zoya Pixie Dust for summer 2013 – Matte glitter polishes with an interesting structure, they sparkle like gemstones! There are loads of beautiful shades in this collection, I’m especially curious to try Destiny, the coral one. Swatches of the entire collection at Vampy Varnish.

St. Tropez Skin Illuminator – I want blingy legs for summer, and the Rose or Violet version of this body shimmer, well.. you’re welcome to move in! Available at Beautybay.

LUSH BIG Shampoo – I’m nearly out of my Karma Komba shampoo bar and now I’m thinking about giving BIG a go. It was really good when I sampled it last summer, plus it smells lovely!

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Stained Gloss – A new line of GLOSSY lip tars will be released soon, I can’t WAIT! Sneak peek here, it sold me completely.

Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Harem & Venous – Saw them both at Temptalia recently and fell in love. The Illamasqua polishes are le bomb, totally worth every penny. Available at the Illamasqua website.

Burt’s Bees Sugar Scrub Mango & Orange – I have nearly ended my Cranberry & Pomegranate tub which I adore, so now I want to try a different scent. It’s really scrubby and oily, makes the skin feel wonderful.
