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!

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? Vad tycker du om pigment skillnad mellan med och utan primern? Kommer du köpa några av de här?

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!

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!

The Limited Edition Lorac Mega Pro 3 Palette is Mine!

Lorac Mega Pro Palette 3
The new Lorac Mega Pro Palette 3 is finally mine! It took ALOT to get it home but I’m so happy to be able to have it as I do have the other 2 in the series haha! This palette is a limited edition holiday palette with 32 shimmer and matte shadows.

Lorac Mega Pro Palette 3

This year’s Mega Pro is a slim white palette with Lorac’s logo in rose gold. Not my favorite of packaging as makeup gets dirty so this palette will look like one hot mess once it’s used! Just as previous years,. there is a large mirror and it is slim in size making it quite travel & storage friendly. I do love the fact that the eyeshadow names are yet again printed below the shadows too.

Lorac Mega Pro Palette 3

The color range is beautiful, they come in quite cooler nudes in comparison to earlier palettes and I don’t find that the palette matches up to the previous palettes which is a plus in my (collector’s) book! The shadows are Lorac Quality – very creamy. but very dusty. They apply well if you’re careful.  Even with my previous mega pros, the colors did dust up quite a bit and so I wasn’t expecting any less with this palette. The colors did dust and again, with the packaging… Well, not the best for the quality of the shadows. So as I usually say…Don’t forget your primer!

I’ll swatch ’em in quads so the colors are easy to see.
