Today I’m back to review a mascara I have been trying out for the last couple of weeks – the IsaDora Stretch Lash Mascara.

You see the little red tip with the arrows? That’s what makes this mascara special. You twist the cap to adjust the length of the brush!

So this is what the long brush looks like:

And this is what the short brush looks like.

When the brush is long it is supposed to give your lashes length, volume and separation. When the brush it short it adds extra volume and definition.

When I apply the mascara, I first start with the long brush. I let my top lashes dry for a bit while doing my lower lashes (still with the long brush) before I adjust the brush to the short mode. Then I go in with a second layer on my top lashes.

After:

Let me just start by saying, I love the brush. Both  long and short! I thought it was going to be quite gimmicky but it wasn’t. I actually feel that by combining the different lengths of the brush I can achieve the effect I want (and vary it if I would like to). The formula applies beautifully as well. The downside with this mascara is that it does crumble a bit on my lower lashes after a long day. The mascara retails for around 179 kr.

The brush, formula and volume!

It’s a very small con, but the wear time. When I’ve had issues with the mascara, I had been wearing it for roughly 14 hours. I really can’t ask any mascara to not crumble after so many hours.

Score: 4,5/5 – highly recommend!

IsaDora is on a roll with their summer collections! This collection is called Pool Glow and contains bronzing makeup. I haven’t got the lot but I have some goodies to show you!

IsaDora Pool Glow Bronzing Makeup Summer 2017

If you’re familiar with IsaDora as a makeup brand, I am sure you recognize the lip oils. This is a new release of their original lip oil but these have a hint of color. I have been using these like crazy since I got them. I love the sheer tint on my lips and I feel it’s perfect for summer. I have read other reviews where the scent has been a issue. However, I think they smell great and I really don’t get the issue.

Swatch & review: OPI California Dreaming Collection SS17

02 augusti 2017 av Ellinor Engström

Even though OPI’s AW collection is just right around the corner, I can’t help to share the swatches för OPI’s SS collection. It’s just too pretty and right up my alley.

The collection consists of 12 shades and as you can see from the collage above – it’s pretty much 50 shades of pink. And why don’t I mind? Because I love love love wearing pink on my nails. The collection has 8 cremes, 2 crellies and 2 metallics.

OPI California Dreaming Feeling Frisco

First up is Feeling Frisco. It’s a pretty vanilla/light nudeish shade but the formula is a bit hard to work with. However it does even out with top coat so it is definitely wearable.

OPI California Dreaming Barking Up the Wrong Sequoia

Barking Up the Wrong Sequoia is a peachy pink creme polish. The formula was fine. Two coats for full coverage.

OPI California Dreaming Excuse Me, Big Sur!

Next up is one of my faves of the collection – Excuse Me, Big Sur! I really like how the pink is a bit toned down and it looks very pretty on the nails as well. The formula is very nice and opaque in two coats.

OPI California Dreaming Time For a Napa

Time for the signature shade of the collection – Time For a Napa! TFaN is a light coral. Or it is pink? You decide. Gorgeous polish none the less! Two coats for full coverage

OPI California Dreaming Malibu Pier Pressure

Malibu Pier Pressure is a gorgeous bubblegum pink. So flattering on the nice and great formula!

OPI California Dreaming GPS I Love You

GPS I Love You is a bright pink shade. The formula is a bit thin but applies beautifully. Love it!

OPI California Dreaming This is Not Whine Country

I looove This is Not Whine Country! I had really high hopes for this shade but it wasn’t quite what I expected. I didn’t expect this shade to be a crelly so at first I was disappointed by the thin formula. But somehow it is still high in pigment so you get full coverage in two coats and an incredibly shine. I mean just look! 5/5 in my books.

OPI California Dreaming To the Mouse House We Go!

Let’s have a look at the second crelly of the collection – To the Mouse House We Go! The formula is the same as This is Not Whine Country. I am blinded by the shine. Wow. Love it!

OPI California Dreaming Santa Monica Beach Peach

Santa Monica Beach Peach is a bright orange shade. I usually don’t wear orange shades but this one is amazing! Two coats for full coverage.

OPI California Dreaming Me, Myselfie & I

Me, Myselfie & I is a beautiful coral shade. Almost a  one coater. Applies oh so smooth!

OPI California Dreaming Sweet Carmel Sunday

Sweet Carmel Sunday is a warm toned metallic polish. I would say it’s almost rose gold. It’s a pretty shade but it didn’t go that well with my skin tone. It’s a little streaky but not too bad! Two coats for full coverage.

OPI California Dreaming Don’t Take Yosemite For Granite

Don’t Take Yosemite For Granite is probably the most unique shade of the collection. It’s pretty and actually applies nicely for a metallic shade. It is hardly streaky at all. I don’t see myself reaching for this shade mid summer but I probably will for fall!

I hope you enjoyed the swatches!
