One of the few lipsticks ever I would say I might be able to end. I've got far over 200 lipsticks in my collection but this one is special. I'm very fair skinned (N5-N10) with a neutral undertone so on me it doesn't look pastel at all, it's a medium pink but with the milkiness of a pastel, it's so amazing! And of course it's an amplified creme, what is there to dislike about it..
Finally I've found an opponent to MAC Shroom! I've used Shroom as a face highlighter for so long, and even though I absolutely love it I've wanted something less champagne and more pure gold. And there was Nylon! How could I have missed it? With my ultra fair skin (N5-N10) most highlighters leave a trace of colour on the face, and not just a tinted sheen if you know what I mean. Basically - they're all too dark. Nylon is the perfect whitened gold for us pale girls with a strong love for intense cheekbone highlighters. Here's a picture of me wearing it. http://www.lipglossbitch.se/wp-content/uploads/391.jpg
The name is tacky and the typography is a fiasco that makes the bottle look cheap. Apart from those (really not that important) cons I love this scent. Really really really do! A soft peachy floral that screams "no sorrow darling!" loud enough for me to really feel it now and then. I like wearing this scents when I know I'll have a tough day, just because of that fact. I like how this sparkly girlyness stays classy. No immature teenage-y sugar bomb, just a bright and beautiful scent that makes you smile. This scent isn't surprising in any way, people won't react as if a horde of unicorns ran through the room, but you will most likely get to hear that you smell really good today. So, it definitely is work safe! A great everyday scent when you don't want to surprise. You go, Lanvin!
If you're searching for the perfect deep red polish, I guess this isn't it. At least it wasn't for me.. Too much fuchsia in it to feel like a genuine red, but yeah, of course it's beautiful. So if you're aware of that and WANT a deep fuchsia red, go for it! It's like jam.
A beautiful dark berry red, elegant and gothic. Will look amazing for autumn. Apply thick flowy layers, or else it applies uneven because of the jelly finish. Let me dip this beauty in dark chocolate and eat it, please!
The perfect dark red jelly. Simple as that! A deep blood red shade with amazing depth, a tad blue based, but just enough to make it look fresh and cool without turning fuchsia at all. Dracula red, basically! Dark without looking blackened, red without looking firetruck-y. Amazing result in 2 or 3 coats. My search is over.
I absolutely understand why people find this offensive and awful. The cumin is very "sweaty" and before it settles down, well, that's what you get. A skanky sweaty cumin. Those first minutes I seriously just hold my breath and wave my arms arount to make it settle as fast as possible, because to be honest it's quite gross there for a while. But when it finally settles this soft, rosy deep drama takes place. The animalistic "anger" is still there, but it interacts with something that reminds me of a stale castle hallway draped with dusty velvet. There's something blood like in it too, metallic-y and cold, that works just lovely with the rose. A great scent that needs to be worn by the right person. Of course I can only speak for myself now, but I guess that people with a stronger natural BO easier gets put off by this. Those who "recognize" their own sweat in it so to speak. I almost never smell of sweat, can't remember when I last did, so I would almost say that the "sweaty" scent is interesting and seductive. Smells like sex in a way, not like working out or skipping a shower. You with me? So basically, It's an amazing scent that doesn't work on everyone. Just like a good odd scent should act.
My favourite bright coloured eyeshadow palette ever. The best shades in this one kicks serious ass! The highlighter on the left and the two blacks are a bit unneccessary, I don't find myself using them that much. But the other ones (THE TURQUOISE, AARGH!) are beyond awesome. Shadows are super pigmented, soft as silk (I would compare them to the MAC matte2 to the feel) and they don't crumble all over the world like cheap shadows often do. Double thumbs up! The case is sleek and takes up minimal space for the amount of shadows in it. Of course it's a little bit flimsy, but what to expect? So my only problem with the palette is that it contains "too many" shadows. WnW could have cut down on the unneccesary shades and just released the best ones. I wouldn't miss them so to speak. But seriously, for this tiiiny amount of money I can't really keep anything against them. This palette is a bargain and you should get your hands on it if you see it.
I love you matte2! The pigmentation and texture is amazing, it feels like velvet. This is a great shade for really dark smokey eyes, lovely worn with cranberry or purple shades because of the slight purple tinge, but it's awesome on its own too.
Hell YES! The most perfect brown shadow ever. This one is my go to shade and I seriously love it. I've often got problems finding browns that suits my natural coloring, my fair skin and dark brown hair are both very ashy. When I got this the MAC employee I talked to said "Should you really get a shade THIS ashy for your brows..?" to me, and I was like "HAHA yeah I guess..?" So as I said, I mostly use it for my brows and in my lashline for everyday make up. If I'm doing smokey brown eye looks I prefer this one or Handwritten. Go MAC, your neutral shadows might be the star of the whole brand.
Ultra fair neutral/cool ashy skin, blue eyes, dark brown hair. I don't know, really. Well, I guess it's an awesome highlighter for those with darker skin than me, but this is basically the same shade as my skin or just a tad darker. So the only thing showing up for me is the shimmer, which have a bit too large particles I think. However, this works well as a cheek highlight or a really neutral brow/inner eye highlighter. But I've definitely got other shades that works better for eye stuff, and more finely milled ones for cheeks. So yeah, it's not worth the hype to me, but it definitely isn't bad.
The perfect leaf green polish! It's just muted the tiniest bit, so it still appears really bright and happy, but at the same time it does look really classy and modern. Chic in some way! Wear it with black clothes/accessoires and you'll look smokin' hot. The formula is the usual thick China Glaze creme style. Could need a drop of thinner if you're really picky, but I don't really care about it.
As said a million times before, this is THE red glitter polish. Really really pretty. It's not perfect though, if it was a tad less pink I would say it was, but I guess that's just me. ;)
The best teal shade of polish ever. This is my go to polish and I almost dare to say that this is my favourite polish of all time. Almost. Both drying time, wear and coverage is really great. I love the Misa bottles too, the cap feels good holding!
Now here's a lovely foundation. I'm pale as a sheet (around NC10) so the lightest shade is a tad too dark for me, but I apply it sparingly in the T-zone and on my cheeks and then set it with a really fair, semi-matte mineral foundation. This creates the most flawless base I've ever worn, like porcelain! It stays put all night too, without touch ups. I can imagine people with oilier skin having a problem with the staying power because of the dewiness, but it's perfect for me who feel like a desert. Haha. My skin often looks a bit dull, but it looks a lot healthier when I'm wearing this. The scent is gorgeous too, a perfume-y luxurious smell that disappears right after application. Feels fancy! Then of course - it's quite expensive. But I guess you get what you pay for.
