Last year, this look would have been totally out of my comfort zone. But this year I am all about bright and vivid colors in my makeup.
One of IsaDora’s summer collections is called Blue Bliss and consists of five Perfect Contour Kajal Waterproof with colors ranging from pitch black, lavender, turquoise and blue.
And by waterproof… They sure mean waterproof! It seriously won’t budge and I honestly have a hard time removing it at the end of the day. But I will pick a little bit trouble with removal over smudged eyeliner that gets all over the place.
The collection also contains three new liquid lipsticks in the shades 21 Orange Pop, 22 Coral Cocktail and 23 Pink Play, three Wonder Nail shades in 558 Turquoise Bliss, 559 Sparkling Sand and 516 Regatta (my favorite) and two new shades of their Grand Volume Lash Color Mascara in 141 Blue Bliss and 142 Aquatic.
Last but not least they have also released their Twist-Up Balm but with a splash of color. I’m wearing Sheer Raspberry on my lips on the pics below. I’ve really liked a sheer glossy lip for this summer as well and I have hardly even been reaching for liquid lipsticks.
I really liked the look I created with the collection and I have been reaching for a lot of these products since I took these pictures as well.
What do you guys think of the collection?

Ciaté London has released four new shades in their Gelology formula. The formula is heavily pigmented and gives you a ultra shiny nail and added volume. Your manicure can also last up to ten days.
All of the shades in the Gelology series are 7 free which means that the formula doesn’t contain the seven most poisonous substances that many traditional nail polish brands use.
The Gelology series can now be bought in the Swedish pharmacy Apotek Hjärtat.
I think we can all agree that the shades look absolutely stunning in the bottles, but let’s head on over to the swatches.
First up is the shades ”Supernova”. This is the most sheer out of the shades in this collection. But I don’t mind. I love this polish and I think it is very fitting considering the current mermaid/unicorn trend. You do need three coats for full coverage but just look how amazing the result is. Totally worth it.
Next up is the shade called ”The Naked Truth”. This is the only creme polish in the collection. I am a sucker for pinkish nudes so I am not really surprised that I loved this shade as well. I loved the formula and you need two easy coats for full coverage.
Goal Digger is a cool toned metallic bronze. This is also a pretty color with good pigmentation. Since it’s a metallic shade it is a little bit streaky but it still does look pretty on the nail. I like it but metallics are usually not my cup of tea.
Last but not least it ”Moondust” (I almost accidentally wrote Moonshine… lol). This is a purple shimmer/glitter polish. I love that it is so jam packed with glitter and shimmer but that it doesn’t apply streaky. As you can see from both the bottle picture and swatch there is a lot of golden shimmer. I think this shade is gorgeous. Not my go to shade but very stunning and unique.
Since I never wear the same polish more than five days in a row, I haven’t tried how the polish wears. I do have a little bit of trouble with the top coat and I easily get air bubbles when I apply it. But I haven’t heard or read anywhere else that this is a problem, so I am beginning to think that I might just have gotten a bad bottle.
Overall, I think this is a lovely collection for the summer with some very unique and pretty shades.
