Today I have a major post for you guys, and I really mean MAJOR. I almost filled my memory card with only swatches and product pics from this collection. It’s just so pretty!

So what collection am I hyping? It’s IsaDora’s spring collection Cool Matt.

IsaDora Cool Matt SS17

First up is their new Cover Up foundation – in a stick!

As you can see it also includes a brush. The brush is really smooth and I like it. But I do however prefer to blend the foundation with my beautyblender.

I like the formula and that it is matte. It dries down quite quickly though and that is probably the reason I prefer blending it out with my beautyblender instead of the brush. I have oily skin so I do have to set the foundation with powder and touch up at the end of the day. It is a full coverage foundation but it doesn’t feel heavy or get cakey.

IsaDora also release a new eye shadow palette – the IsaDora Sculptor Bar. I have it in the color 20 Nude.

This palette is amazing. The colors are beautiful and creamy. The pigmentation is good. I also love, love, love that the white/beige shade is twice the size of the other shades. It’s probably just me, but I like to prime my entire lids with a white/beige shade before I proceed with the rest of my eye shadows, so my base shades in every palette always run out. Problem solved with this palette!

Next up are three out of IsaDora’s new Ultra Matt Liquid Lipstick.

I love the formula because it feels almost like a mousse. The applicator feels lovely on the lip, very smooth, and I really like the shape. I feel it helps to distribute the formula evenly and it fits the shape of my lips.

I love all three shades, but Cool Mauve can be a little tricky to apply. I almost need to apply two layers to get an even result. The lipstick wears nicely and dries down completely matte.

IsaDora also release new Precision Brow Pens. I have the shades 72 Medium Brown and 74 Taupe.

The tips are really tiny, as you can see from the pics below.

The pigmentation is nice, but I would have liked the formula to be a bit more creamy. Maybe I’ve just been using brow pomade for too long, I don’t know! :) I think these work really nicely if you want a more natural result and just want to give your natural brows an extra something.

You can’t launch a spring collection without a nice blush, right? :) This is IsaDora’s Perfect Blush in the shade 53 Coral Glow.

The glow is very subtle so it isn’t shimmery or glittery, which I like! The formula is a creamy powder and it’s really pigmented.

Next up are the three now Wonder Nail shades in 544 Nude Attitude, 545 Dolce Rose and 546 Cool Mauve.

All three shades are perfectly pigmented and have a nice and creamy formula. I will definitely be wearing all of these beauties this spring.

Review: IsaDora Big Bold Mascara Extreme Black

26 februari 2017 av Ellinor Engström

Today I am sharing my thoughts on IsaDora’s new mascara – Big Bold Extreme.

IsaDora Big Bold Mascara Extreme Black

I received this a couple of week’s ago and have been wearing it almost every day since. This mascara is a line extension of their best selling Big Bold Mascara. This version is supposed to be more extreme and give extra volume to your lashes.

The fibre brush is extra large and has a mix of short and long bristles. The short bristles are supposed to give you volume, while the long bristles separate and define.

When it comes to application, I struggled a bit with the brush in the beginning, just because of the enormous size. It got quite messy and I ended up needing to use q-tips every morning (which I usually never have the need to). BUT… After a few days I started getting the hang of it. In my pictures I haven’t had to remove any excess mascara around my eyes.

Since my lashes have no natural curve, I always start with curling my lashes. As you can see from the before and after picture there certainly is quite a difference. I like how it defines and lengthens the lashes and it gives you a lot of volume (as promised). It stays in place, there is absolutely no fallout and it doesn’t crumble. The formula is really creamy and nice to work with. I hate mascaras that dry down to quickly because I like taking my time with the application but this mascara works perfectly for me.

The price for the mascara is 169 kr, which I think is really cheap for a mascara this good. One of my favorite mascaras is the IsaDora Grand Volume Lash Styler, but I think that the Big Bold Extreme is slightly better when it comes to the formula. Overall, I am very pleased with this product and I will keep using it as my everyday mascara.

The formula, wear time and price!

It takes some getting used to when it comes to the large brush.

Score:

4/5

IsaDora Boho Baroque Holiday Collection 2016

Hello lovelies!

Today I thought I would share some swatches and product shots of IsaDora Boho Baroque Holiday Collection. I know the holidays are over for this year but I still wanted to share this with you guys.

I also decided to try something new… A lookbook video where I use some of the products I have listed below! I hope you like it.

First up are the new nail polishes! I mean seriously… How gorgeous are they?! I have no complaints for any of the shades. They are all lovely. The glitter is my absolute favorite though. The holographic glitter flakes blow my mind!

Next up is to different kinds of highlighters. The first is a strobing stick and the second is a fluid highlighter. I love both of these products as well, but I do prefer the fluid one over the stick. Maybe it’s just poor application skills from my side, but I get a slightly better finish with the fluid.

This years eye shadow palette is apparently the same as last year’s but since I didn’t get it then I got it now instead. All of the shadows are highly pigmented but I do feel that the maroon-ish shade kind of looses the red to it when applied to the lid. I have used all of the shades from this palette to achieve my eye look below.

The holiday lipsticks for 2016 are from their amazing Lip Desire-line. I loooove these lipsticks and the matching lipliners. They do not dry down completely matte so they aren’t transfer proof but they feel amazing on the lips and apply like a dream. I have paired the lipsticks below with Sculpting Lipliner Waterproof in 64 True Red and 60 Berry Kiss.

So, to sum this post up. This collection contains some really nice products and at affordable prizes. What’s not to love?
