BeautyGlazed Pressed Glitter Bar Palettes * You asked, I tell…

I did a look just recently using one of the Presssed Glitter Bar palettes and I got so many PMs about it so I decided to talk about them after a few ifs and buts.

I bought the Beauty Glazed Palettes when I also bought the Jolie Beauty Bomb Dot Com palette. I got a lot of questions about the Jolie Beauty palette which was then released on just a week or so afterwards. I bought that palette on the Jolie Beauty website.

The Brand

Beauty Glazed is super difficult to find a lot of information on – They provide a website on the back of the palettes but the website never loads. I found their facebook page and there the adress leads to Pakistan…whereas the Distribution on the palette is Hong Kong and produced in China. Many question marks.

I already knew that the brand is a copy-cat brand as they do have dupes for the Jaclyn Hill palette, NYX Ultimates and even Huda Beautys Desert Dust Palette. I have found a number of positive videos on YouTube and blogposts so I am quite on the fence about this brand as there is no background to know who, what, where the product comes from.

The Packaging

I basically went on a full on glitter binge and bought a number of palettes and these two were quite unique. They are Slim smaller sized cardboard palettes with 6 large pans each. There is an internal magnet to hold the palette together which is great since it is a cream-based product.


Things to know about the ingredients that many may react to… Now I am OVER simplifying here but good to know…

Mineral oil – Most cosmetic products use safe mineral oils which can be good for your skin. Myth that mineral oil used in cosmetics is non/purified, industrial-grade. With that said, I cannot 100% guarantee where this mineral oil is from.
Polyisobutene – A Binding Agent, not dangerous in cosmetics.
Aluminum Powder – Restricted by FDA, especially for lip products.
BHA – anticipated to be a human carcinogen and can cause skin depigmentation. EU considers this unsafe in Fragrances.

With that said…not sure if I can trust the list to 100%. More on that under My Thoughts.


Mind you, this product is a cream with quite chunky glitter so I suggest best with fingertips which is also mentioned on the back of the palettes. I also dab the product where I want it so it gives off maximum effect. No primer under and they sit all day after application.

ES-01 Palette

ES-02 Palette

I also picked up their Original 15 Ultra Pigmented Glitter Shadows so if you want to see that palette in more detail, let me know in the comments or through PM!

My Thoughts

On the back you get the Ingredients, what they may contain, directions and also distribution information. The product is distributed in Hong Kong but made in China so take what you may from that information. Also there are the icons on the back including a Cruelty Free PETA bunny, as well as a 24m jar and a recycling icon. I did not find the brand on PETAs list. Also if you look closely, it says “crucityfree”…. I did not get any insert or information with my palettes but I saw a number of people who did so I screenshot that information below:

When I did a search on Seed Beauty… Well. They are based in California and is the parent company to ColourPop. Confusing right? I can keep going with this but I will leave it there.

Questionable company but as for the product, I really like these palettes since they are super affordable for glitters that you may not use on the daily. I work with theme makeup at work so it is nice to have other options than gluing rhinestones (which I also love by the way) and it is more quick and efficient. I love to color mixtures in all the pans. I was not very impressed with is that they all have different amounts in the pans so you are not getting the same amount of each product.

I really wished I did not like the palettes as much as I do as I would really have liked to feel more safe in regards to ingredients and to where my money is going to and contribute to a safer Beauty Community.

Furthering my obsession with Eyeshadow Palettes * Wishlist Spring 2018

As you all know, I have an obsession with eyeshadow palettes and this Spring is no different. Many of you know that I also have a love for the burgundy, burnt oranges and autumn tones which has come out in a number of palettes. Here are a few on my Wishlist.

Som ni kanske redan vet så älsjar jag ögonskuggspaletter… Så nu under våren så finns det nya paletter som jag bara måste ha. Jag gillar burgundy, hallonfärgade nyanser…orange och bara höst-toner och många paletterna har exakt det jag gillar. Här finns några på min önskelista!

Violet Voss Hashtag Palette (493kr)
This one is on my must have list. Violet Voss is one of those brands that I have more recently fallen in love with. After the Holy Grail palette, this one is most definitely going to be a favorite.
/Den här är på min must-have lista. Violet Voss är ett av de märken som jag nyligen har blivit kär i. Efter Holy Grail paletten kommer den här definitivt att bli en favorit!

Viseart Petite PRO Palette 2 (ca. 247kr)
I love Viseart despite them being super expensive and quite difficult to get a hold of unless you want to chance without swatching the product. This mini palette would make a great travel companion!
/Jag älskar Viseart trots att dom är dyrt och ganska svårt att få tag på förutom om du vill chansa utan att swatcha produkten först. Denna mini-palett skulle göra en bra resepalett!

Naked Petite Heat (ca. 239kr)
Speaking of Travel, it has been YEARS since I purchased anything from Urban Decay and this one has caught my eye. Six beautiful shades in the warmer tones to work well with my eye color.
/På tal om resor så har det varit några år sedan jag köpte någonting från Urban Decay och den här har verkligen fångat min intresse. Sex vackra nyanser i varmare tonerna som passar bra med min ögonfärg.

Kat Von D I am Divine Palette (ca. 313kr)
I am such a hoarder when it comes to Kat Von D so when I heard about this palette release, it has been on my mind especially because I am drawn to that neon green!
/Jag är en hoarder när det gäller Kat Von D så när jag hörde om denna så självklart ville jag ha den särskilt när den har en neon grön nyans i!

Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes (465kr)
Oh man, we got this one in at work and I have been oohhing and ahhing over it and everytime a customer purchases it I just get all happy for them! It truly smells of peaches and the pigmentation is great.
/Åhhh…vi fått in denna palett på jobbet och det är på riktigt hur fint som helst. Varje gång en kund köper den så blir jag glad för deras skull haha! Det verkligen doftar persikor och pigmenteringen är fin.

Are you lusting over any palettes this Spring? Which ones?

Products I use when Styling my Hair

Todays post is going to be about the products I use in my hair at the moment.

I am no hair stylist and dont know much about hair care but I have recently colored my hair and have gone back to my natural curls. I hate mousse (I havent found one that has worked well in my hair!) and so I do have some help from my hair dryer & curling wand to keep my curls in tact but otherwise these are the products that help my hair look and feel great!
/Jag är ingen hårstylist och vet inte så mycket om hårvård men jag har nyligen färgat mitt hår och har gått tillbaka till mina naturliga lockar. Jag hatar mousse (jag har inte hittat en som har fungerat bra i mitt hår!) Och så har jag lite hjälp från min hårtork och locktång så håller jag de i takt. Jag ville visa er de andra produkter som hjälper till!

1.Antonio Axu Heat Protection Spray

I have never been faithful to my heat protection products. I have used Björn Axén & Lernberg Stafsing just to name a few but I have fallen in love with Antonio Axus spray (149 kr) since it distributes product perfectly, smells wonderful and protects the color in my hair from styling products that I put in afterwards.
/Jag har aldrig varit trogen mot mina värmeskyddsprodukter. Jag har använt Björn Axén & Lernberg Stafsing för att bara nämna några men jag har blivit kär i Antonio Axus spray (149 kr) eftersom den distribuerar produkt perfekt, luktar underbart och skyddar färgen i mitt hår från stylingprodukter som jag lägger in i håret efteråt.

2. Moroccan Oil Dry Shampoo

I have spoken about the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo (279kr/205ml) in previous posts and it is still a favorite. It does not leave any white residue and keeps the oils at bay. I have bought the lighter version but I havent noticed a difference between the light and dark on red hair.
/Jag har skrivit om Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo (279kr/205ml) i tidigare inlägg och det är fortfarande en favorit. Den lämnar inget spår i håret och håller bort oljan i hårbotten. Jag har köpt den i light men jag har inte märkt någon skillnad mellan Light och Dark på rött hår.

3. SP Wella Luxe Oil

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this Light Oil Spray (299kr). It is expensive but it smells AMAZING and I love the way my hair shines and feels after spraying it. Lyko has a 3 for 2 on this product so you can get it for 189kr so it is something I have in backups!
/Jag är HELT KÄR i denna Light Oil Spray (299kr). Det är dyrt men det doftar AMAZING och jag älskar hur mitt hår får lyster och hur den känns efteråt. Lyko har 3 till 2 på den här produkten så att du kan få den till 189kr just nu!

4. Maria Nila Finishing Spray

The Maria Nila Finishing Spray (189kr) has color protection, smells a bit sweet and doesnt leave my hair feeling crispy afterwards. I usually by the 100ml each time so I can travel with it and another plus is that it is 100% vegan.
/Maria Nila Finishing Spray (189kr) har färgskydd, luktar sött i doften och lämnar inte mitt hår krispig efteråt. Jag brukar köpa den 100 ml varje gång så jag kan resa med sprayen och ett annat plus är att det är 100% veganskt.

5. Shampoo & Mask from SP Wella Luxe Oil Series

Just for reference, I also use the SP Wella Luxe Shampoo (699kr/1litre) and the Keratin Restore Hair Mask (299kr) from the same series. I have also changed up my hair mask from Maria Nilas Head & Hair Repair Mask (299kr) as well as Keune Care Curl Control (279kr) which are both great masks as well!
/& så sist…Bara för referens… så använder jag också SP Wella Luxe Shampoo (699kr/1litre) och Keratin Restore Hair Mask (299kr) från samma serie. Jag har också bytt mellan Maria Nilas Head & Hair Repair Mask (299kr) samt Keune Care Curl Control (279kr). Både är också riktigt bra masker.

Nail Color Favorites for the Spring

I have never been a good keeper of my nails. They are soft, brittle and short. I inherited my dads hands, working hands. I have stopped doing acrylics for while now and I found a few new nail color favorites that work well for the spring.

/Jag har aldrig varit duktig på att ta hand om mina naglar. De är mjuka och korta. Jag har pappas händer som gör att de är torra och tyvärr behöver mer kärlek. Jag har slutat med att använda akryl naglar en stund och har hittat några favoriter som fungerar nu inför våren.

Essie Treat Love & Color

The Essie Treat Love & Color (149kr) are quite new in the market and I bought myself one and then received a few other ones as samples. I fell in love with 85 Indi-Go for it! and 90 On the Mauve. Perfect for year round but a bit more muted in color so they work well with any outfit.
/Essie Treat Love & Color (149kr) är nytt på marknaden och jag köpte mig en och fick sedan några andra som prov. Jag blev kär i 85 Indi-Go for it! och 90 On the Mauve. Perfekt året runt men lite mer dämpad i färger så att de fungerar bra med alla typer av outfits.

Isadoras Wonder Nail Red Legend

From the Autumn Legend Collection last fall, 561 Red Legend (79kr) is such a beautiful deep red with a gorgeous shine to it. A red polish can never go wrong, especially paired with a power red lip!
/Från höstens Legend Collection är 561 Red Legend (79kr) från Isadora. Det är en vacker djupröd med en underbar glans till den. En röd nagellack kan aldrig gå fel, speciellt ihop med en power röd läpp!

Depend 7 Day

Awe man, when I received this collection in the mail, I got super excited. If you’ve read previous posts, I was not a fan of the 7 day polishes until I truly gave them a 2nd, 3rd, 4th chance and now I really like them! It is all in the prep. Back to the polishes. I could not choose 1 color from this collection so it will be 3: Purple Mood, New Beginning & Spiritual Bliss (39kr/polish).
/Alltsååå, när jag fick denna kollektion i posten blev jag super glad! Om du har läst tidigare inlägg var jag inte en fan av de 7 dagars nagellack tills jag verkligen gav dem en 2a, 3dje, 4e chans… och nu gillar jag dem! Allt ligger i hur man förberedar naglarna. Tillbaka till nagellacken. Jag kunde inte välja 1 färg från denna kollektion så det blir 3:Purple Mood, New Beginning & Spiritual Bliss (39kr/polish).

imPRESS Manicure

Okay okay.. so not really nail polish but I cannot do a nail post without some imPRESS. While visiting KISSNYPROSE, I was able to take a few imPRESS (139kr) home with me and I chose Gossip Girl & Bells & Whistles, 2 press-on nails that are turquoise blue with accents!
/Okej okej .. Så inte riktigt nagellack men jag kan inte göra en nagelpost utan imPRESS. När jag besökte KISSNYPROSE fått jag ta ett par hem med mig och jag valde Gossip Girl & Bells & Whistles. De är press-on som är turkosblåa med accenter!

A Closer look at Isadora Spring Atelier 2018

Spring has come at Isadora and I was excited to see the new Isadora Spring Atelier collection that has some neutral lippies and an interesting eyeliner. Here is a closer look at the collection.


/Våren har kommit hos Isadora och jag var glad att se den nya Isadora Spring Atelier Kollektion har några neutrala lippies och en intressant eyeliner. Här är en närmare titt på kollektionen.

Precise Roll-On Eyeliner

The Precise Roll-On Eyeliner (129kr) is a waterproof liquid eyeliner which a very interesting technique to go with it.
/Precise Roll-On Eyeliner (129kr) är en vattentät flytande eyeliner som är super intressant gjort.

There is a roll-on applicator which, to be honest, takes a little getting use to.It does give even application and i can roll it back and forth to get a thicker line.
/Det finns en roll-on applikator som, för att vara ärlig, tar lite tid att vänja sig till. Det ger en jämn applikation och jag kan rulla den fram och tillbaka för att få en tjockare linje.

Lip Desire Sculpting Lipstick

There are two new colors of Lip Desire Sculpting Lipstick (95kr) in Bare Pink and Peach Pop. These colors are also in the Sculpting Lipliners (139kr).
/Det finns två nya färger av Lip Desire Sculpting Lipstick (95 kr) i Bare Pink och Peach Pop. Dessa färger finns också i Sculpting Lip Liners (139 kr).

I really like the consistency of these lipsticks. They are easy to apply, easy to travel with and sit well on the lips. They are not drying and the Bare Pink shade is gorgeous as a YLBB (your lips but better) shade whereas the Peach pop is the perfect Spring color pop!
/Jag gillar konsistensen av dessa läppstifter. De är lätt att applicera, lätt att resa med och sitta bra på läpparna. De torkar inte ut och den Bare Pink nyans är underbar som en YLBB (dina läppar men bättre) nyans medan Peach pop är den perfekta vår färg!

Liquid Lip Creams

There are also two new Liquid Lip Creams (129kr) in Coral kiss (top) and Pink Blossom (bottom). I still have not been all that sold on the lip creams but I am hoping that they will grow on me.
/Det finns också två nya Liquid Lip Creams (129kr) i Coral kiss (top) och Pink Blossom (bottom). Jag har fortfarande inte helt kär i lip creams, men jag hoppas att de kommer att växa på mig.

Lip Swatches

Just so you have an idea of the colors! From the left: Lip Desire Sculpting Lipstick in Bare Pink, Peach Pop, Liquid Lip Cream in Pink Blossom, Coral kiss and lastly the two Sculpting lipliners in Bare Pink and Peach Pop.
/Bara så du har en uppfattning om färgerna – Från vänster: Lip Desire Sculpting läppstift i Bare Pink, Peach Pop, Liquid Lip Cream i Pink Blossom, Coral Kiss och slutligen de två Skulpterande Lipliners i Bare Pink och Peach Pop.

Eye shadow Quartet

There are two new eye shadow quartet (145kr). The first is Peach Avenue which has one peachy shade and 3 neutral tones (creamy white, cool-toned brown and a dark brown).

Coffee & Cream which is a beautiful everyday combination of neutral tones. One shimmery light-sand beige, nude, brown and coffee black.

/Det finns två nya eye shadow quartet (145kr). Den första är Peach Avenue som har en aprikos färg i och 3 neutrala toner (krämig vit, coolt tonad brun och en mörkbrun).

Coffee & Cream som är en vacker vardagskombination av neutrala toner. En skimrande ljus-sand beige, en nude färg, en brun och en kaffe svart.

Blush & Glow

The Blush & Glow draping wheel (229kr) has been an on and off product for my part. I love the idea but I find that they are difficult to store and travel with. With that said, you get very versatile shades which is worth looking into. The new Peach Me is filled with warmer peach tones and one highlighter shade.
/Blush & Glow draping wheel (229kr) har varit en on and off produkt för min del. Jag älskar idén, men jag tycker att de är svåra att förvara och resa med. Med det sagt så finns det väldigt fina nyanser som är värda att titta på. Den nya Peach Me är fylld med varm persika toner och en highlighter nyans.

What are your thoughts on this collection? Will you be picking any of these products up?
