Peach Kiss

When reviewing the Becca Ultimate Crème Eyeliners I mentioned how gorgeous ashy green Neo Classic is paired with peachy tones, so here’s an example of it! I love how the liner basically dead on matches my diffuse greyish greenish eye colour. It’s a super wearable shade and therefore my go-to eyeliner when black, brown or grey doesn’t feel interesting enough.

And oh, the hair! I’ve used the Maria Nila Colour Refresh hair mask in Pink Pop over my coppery parts! I use Bright Copper most of the time to enhance my actual colour but I really like the pink too, it cools the tone down and turns it red for a few washes. I love switching my colour up like this! Available at Swedish website Eleven (ships within Europe if I’m not mistaken)

Zoya “Holly”

Min bästa lackbutik Pure Cosmetic som ligger här i Gbg (har även webshop) har utförsäljning på en massa Zoyalack just nu, går det ens att stå emot 50% rabatt? Inte kan då jag. Jag svängde in en lunch och hittade två lack jag kikat på förut, behöver jag förklara händelseförloppet därefter? Zoya Holly är ett metallicskimrigt grönt lack, det ser ut som julkulor på naglarna! Två lättlackade lager täckte gott och väl på mina naglar.

My favourite nail polish store Pure Cosmetic which you can find here in Gothenburg has 50% off a bunch of Zoya polishes right now, who can resist 50% off? I know I can’t. I popped in during a lunch break and found two polishes that I had looked at before, do I need to give you the rest of the story? Zoya Holly is a metallic shimmery green polish, it looks like christmas ornaments on the nails! Two easily applied coats was more than enough on my nails.

Yves Rocher Redberries Hand Cream

Det finns inte mycket min förkylda näsa registrerar just nu, men Redberries Hand Cream från Yves Rochers julkollektion bryter igenom och piggar upp. En syrlig bärdoft som jag gärna hade ätit i lösgodisform! Handkrämen i sig är ingen hardcorebehandling (där gör Aesop jobbet) utan är väldigt tunn, mer som en lotion, så toppen att ha i handväskan on the run eftersom den går in så snabbt. Den tar eggen av de där svintorra fläckarna som börjar svida i tid och otid, så jag är mer än nöjd med vad denna tjugokronorskräm kan leverera. Finns att shoppa på Yves Rochers hemsida.

My sick nose can’t register much at all right now, but Redberries Hand Cream from the Yves Rocher holiday collection breaks through and makes me happier. A fizzy berry scent that I would have loved to eat in candy form! The hand cream itself is no hardcore treatment (for that I have Aesop), it’s thinner, more like a lotion, so it’s great to carry with you on the go as it absorbs super quickly. It takes the edge off the dry and cracking parts that burns from time and time, so I’m more than happy with what this super cheap cream delivers. Available at your closest Yves Rocher.

Faces that never made it past Instagram

Some looks I neither mange nor have the time to get good pictures of, so they end up as grainy Instagram material (@killercolours). Let’s take a look at some random stuff from about August until now!
