KICKS Vernissage | Nails, Brows and Wing It Liner!

Kicks invited me to a fantastic eventing with Nails, Brows and so much more! The fantastic Frida Selkirk worked with her team of manicurists and did beautiful nails on a number of beauty journalists, in perfect timing before the Swedish Beauty Awards.
/Kicks bjöd mig till en fantastisk event med Naglar, Bryn och så mycket mer! Den fantastiska Frida Selkirk jobbade med sitt team och gjorde vackra naglar på ett antal skönhetsjournalister – perfekt timing innan Swedish Beauty Awards.

I have never been to a KICKS event and this one was just FABulous! They had some awesome news coming to stores!
/Jag har aldrig varit på en KICKS event och den här var bara FABulous! De hade några fantastiska nyheter som kommer till butikerna!

/Skin Enhancer (149kr) är en tonad gelkräm som har SPF 30 och kan blandas och matchas för att ge vacker lyster. Återigen är jojobaolja också närvarande i denna produkt och det kommer ganska gelliknande i konsistens. Det finns 3 nyanser.

Another super interesting product is the Thirsty Skin Skin Booster (179kr/150ml) that will be in stores by week 14 and it has Hyaluronic acid, Sugar cane, coconut fruit extract, and even green tea extract! It gives instant and long-lasting hydration! You use it after cleansing but before serum.

Det ger omedelbar och långvarig fukt! Du använder den efter rengöring men före serum.

My favorite.. brushes (ca. 99-199kr)! I love me some new brushes and KICKS has done well with creating a full PRO line with 12 brushes for the eyes and face.

YES! Kiss Professional is one of my go-to brands and they have come out with a cosmetic line including ca. 60 eyeshadows, 36 matte lipsticks, and brow products just to name a few!
/JAA! Kiss Professional är en av mina go-to märken och nu har de kommit ut med en hel kosmetika serie som inkl. ögonskuggor, läppstifter, brynprodukter bl.a!

Lips

Sooo many lip finishes to choose from and in sooo many colors! I was super excited to see lip crayons (though a coworker was not all too impressed with the wear.. I need to try myself!).
/Det finns så himla många nyanser och konsistenser för läpparna! Jag blev super intresserade av deras lip crayons men en kollega var inte alls imponerad av hur de applicerade… Jag måste testa själv!

The Celeste matte liquids are completely new and are not available on the website yet but they gave a beautiful matte lip and in awesome colors. I was able to try the Belle matte lip creams (also new, not photographed here!) so I will get back with a review soon!
/Celeste matte liquids är super nya och är inte ens på websidan än men de ger riktigt matta läppar. Jag själv fått testa Belle matte lip creams (som är också nya och inte ens på bild här!) men jag återkommer med en recension snart!

My Favorites from the Kiss Professional cosmetic line are the lip products, especially Egoism matte velvet lipsticks and they come in so many different colors including blacks, blues, greens and of course your more natural shades.
/Mina favoriter från Kiss professional läpprodukterna är Egoism matte velvet lipsticks som finns i hur många fina färger som helst inkl. svart, blått, grönt och självklart lite mer naturliga färger.

Eyeshadows & Palettes

These eyeshadows are super blendable and they come in fantastic shades! I loved the neon shades just as much as I loved the neutrals. They also have different eyeshadow palettes. The 6 brick one on the right is actually not Taupe Brown but rather “Pink Nude” and I want it sooo bad!
/Ögonskuggorna är super mjuka och kommer i hur fina färger som helst! Jag älskade neon nyanserna så mycket som jag gillade de naturliga. Det finns också paletter och denna ni ser ovan är inte taupe brown men “Pink Nude” som är en favis som jag vill få hem!

EyeBrows

Brows brows and brows! They have everything from brow pencils to highlighter duos to pomades and the sculpting brow pencil!
/BRYN bryn bryn! De har allt för brynen inkl. pennor, highlighter duos, pomade och även en sculpting bryn penna.

Eyepencils

I would love to try the new pencils and they come in three different types: Luxury Intense Eyeliner which is a retractable that is creamy in consistency, Intensif-Eye Liner which is a gel-like finish and finally the Waterproof Wonders that feel like a dream!
/Jag skulle älska att testa alla nya pennor och de kommer i 3 olika typer: Luxury Intense Eyeliner som är en retractable som är mjuk och len att applicera, Intensif Eye liner som är en gel format och Waterrproof Wonders som är sååå mjuka och enkla att måla med!

Face Products

Yes, the Kiss Professional line does not stop there! There are also face products including primers, cushion foundations, fixation primers and even highlighters and concealers. The list just goes on and on!
/JA, Kiss professional kosmetik stannar inte där! Det finns massa ansiktsprodukter också som inkl. primer, cushion foundations, fixation primers, highlighters och concealers. Listan bara fortsätter!

Lashes & Nails

Of course I wont jump over the new Lash Couture faux mink lashes and the newer nail designs.
/Självklart ska man inte glömma nya Lash Couture faux mink lahses och även de nya nageldesigns.

I love the fact that they have come out with latex-free adhesives. Something I MUST get a hold of. It comes in clear and in black.
/Jag älskar att de har kommit ut med latex-free lim till fransarna. JAG MÅSTE HITTA DEM!! Det finns i genomskynlig och svart.

As you all may know, I use kiss false nails often since they sit well, are easily exchangeable and comes in sooo many different designs. I am loving the new colors and designs from imPRESS.
/Som ni kanske redan vet så använder jag kiss naglar ofta då de sitter bra och är enkel att ta bort. De kommer i hur många fina nyanser som helst. Jag gillar verkligen de nya färger och designs av imPRESS.

Are you excited for the new KISS Professional cosmetics line? Unfortunately not available in Sweden (yet! *fingerscrossed*) but would you purchase anything from this brand? What are your thoughts? What are you interested in trying? /Är du lika intresserad av KISS Professional kosmetika? Tyvärr så finns inte dem i Sverige (än! Jag hoppas verkligen på att de kommer!), men skulle du köpa någonting från märket? Vad tycker du? Vad skulle du vilja testa?

Kat Von D Pastel Goth Palette | Review & Look

As an avid Kat Von D makeup fan, the Pastel Goth Palette ($38) was something I needed to try out for myself.

This palette is a limited edition palette that contains eight matte shadows in pastel rainbow shades. It is a much smaller palette in comparison to the Metal Matte that came out during Christmas here in Sweden.

/Jag som köper mycket ifrån Kat Von D ville ha denna palett att leka med också. Paletten är limited edition och har åtta matta pastel färger. Den är mycket mindre i storlek i jämförelse med Metal Matte som kom ut i julas.

In true Kat Von D style, the shadows have creative names that describe the colors, star a bright yellow, gloom a green or skull a white.

/I sann Kat Von D stil så har alla skuggor bra namn som beskriver färgerna.

Star, Clementine, Meow, Dope
Doom, Gloom, Dagger, Skull

I was worried that since these are matte shades, they will be quite sheer in application but they do have a bit more pigment than you regular mattes. I did notice that they did dust up a bit when I tapped my brush into them but they were still simple to apply and work well without an eye primer under. In the look below you will see them performing over NYX jumbo Pencil in Milk as I wanted them to stick out even more.

/Jag var lite orolig då de är matta skuggor så de skulle applicera ganska sheer men de här har mer pigment än andra matta. Jag märkte att de dammar upp ganska bra men färgerna var lätt att applicera. Jag jobbade med NYX jumbo pencil i Milk för att få mer intensiv färg.

There is a bit of a scare effect with this palette.. It is just a bunch of colorful matte, strong shades so is it wearable as is? Well. Yes, it is! Dare to wear Color! I demonstrated the palette by using Star on the lid, Clementine in the crease together with a soft blend on the outer-V with Meow and Dope. On the lower lash line I used both greens: Gloom and Dagger and lastly Skull in the inner tear duct.

/Det finns lite av en skrämmande känsla till paletten då det är massa färg och inte så mycket naturliga looker som kan göras men ja! det går att ha på och ser fin ut! Jag använt star på locket, Clementine i globelinjen tillsammans med meow och dope i Vn. Under ögat använd jag Gloom och Dagger och sist Skull i inre vrån.

Do you use a lot of color in your looks or would you use this palette for color accents?
/Använder du mycket färg? Skulle du använda denna för mer accent färger?

The Language of Flowers | Depend 7 Day (Spring 2017)

The Language of Flowers is the perfect representation of Spring. Depend has released 12 beautiful shades in their 7-day line!

Depend Language of Flowers Spring 2017

Depend 7 day is a system with super glossy longevity with a gel feeling. It holds up to a week and is super easy to apply and easy to remove. The language of flowers (39kr/st) is one of my favorite collections as of late from Depend. I may be biased since it may be that one of the prettiest polishes in the group has my name in it! You can find glittery notes and more clear spring shades too.

Depend Language of Flowers Spring 2017

I can absolutely say that my favorite of the bunch is Elegant Jasmine…come on! It has my name in it and it is this beautiful pale duoglitter! So beautiful!

Depend Language of Flowers Spring 2017

YAG Shadows, With & Without Primer | YAG Week

YAG Sweden I wanted to show you the power of the eyeprimer, especially YAG’s eyeprimer when applying the loose eyeshadows from YAG Sweden.

YAG Sweden First..The packaging. It comes in a small diamond bottom shaped jar with a little peppershaker sill which indicates a little goes a long way with these pigment shadows! The four shades I will show you today are these four. Seriously check these out! I did one swatch without primer, clean skin and daylight and the other with the YAG eyeprimer under!

Star White

I am seriously obsessed with this eyeprimer too since it works not only for these pigments but also other brand shadows too! The longevity is incredible and I soo little goes soo long! A fantastic product and these shadows are just beautiful too!

Will you be getting your hands on the primer or any of these pigments?
What did you think of the difference in pigmentation with and without primer?

   Idag visar jag er mina YAG lösskuggor med och utan deras eyeprimer. Det finns så otroligt skillnad i pigment att det var ett måste att visa! Jag älskar förpackningen av en pepparhållare och lite diamantform i plasten. så original! Färgerna jag valde var också super fina, vilken är din favorit?

A look at Pale Shimmer Highlighter from YAG Sweden | YAG Week

I was recently talking to my ex-coworkers about looking for a new highlighter and this one did not cross my mind until I started the idea for YAG Week and I am so happy that I rediscovered this baby since it is a beautiful highlighter!

YAG Sweden

Pale Shimmer (199kr/3g)  is a beautiful pale-pink champagne color that gives shine and luster to the cheeks but also under the brow bone or even if you like on your décolleté. I’m not all that fond of loose highlighters but this one is just too beautiful to pass up.

YAG Sweden

The packaging is super smart with a twist lock so you never dust over your makeup/travel bag! Also you can shake out the perfect amount in
the cap so you don’t waste a lot of product by just the packaging.

YAG Sweden
This is just one shake… And as you can see the color looks quite pink-ish but swatched and on the face it looks completely different!

YAG Sweden

Here’s a finger swatch and you can see it almost becomes more apricot colored but on the cheeks you get a beautiful glow instead!

What is your favorite highlighter at the moment?

Jag pratade med f.d kollegor om en ny highlighter då min Gloss of Sweden highlighter är typ slut… så tänkte jag inte alls på att jag hade en ny ifrån YAG och börjat älska den igen! Det som är så unik med denna är att den ser lite rosa ut i förpackningen, swatchad på handen så ser den aprikos ut men på huden ser den lite ljus vit lystrig! Så himla fin! Vad är din favorit highlighter just nu?

How to use Colored Eyeliners by Multilayering

Do you want to add some multidimension to your look without it looking like you’ve collided with a 4 year old coloring on walls?

To this look I used two colored eyeliners in purple: NYX Vivids Blossom & NYX Vivids Violet in order to create a multilayered eyeliner. I recommend using two colors that are quite similar in color to achieve an everyday feel to the look. Just apply the dark color first, then outline with the lighter color in the inner corner. Simple!

LOTD colored eyeliner NYX Vivids

I also applied a little of copper & red on the lid to emphasize the color in my eyes. Together with the purple, this is a combination that is winning!
