MAC ProStore, Stockholm Opening Celebration (November 2016)

nutcrackersweetThe new MAC ProStore has opened on Biblioteksgatan here in Stockholm and I had the pleasure to spend time with the blog crew but also with the MAC girls I have encountered numerous times at numerous events so it was a magical event!

MAC Pro Store nutcracker sweet

The theme this Season is “Nutcracker Sweet” and the themed spread throughout the store and the people who attended! They had a nutcracker show but also many yummy treats and the makeup is just mums!!

What makes this store special is that, as mentioned, it is a PRO Store which means you can get a hold of the PRO products (YAY). You can get more down to basics for body painting and mixing. Perfect for the freelancer or just the regular customer to be honest! Nowadays, everyone can mix! In addition, this store is one of the larger Pro Stores in the world which is fantastic!

I can say that this store is one I will be visiting often and I love the fact that it is on the same street as my old workplace Sephora so if you need a makeup fix, Biblioteksgatan has got you covered!

Thank you to Superficial Mickies for taking me with her & the MAC team who made the event so successful!

Jag var bjuden till MAC Pro Store öppningen på Biblioteksgatan och det var super mysigt! Temat var Nutcracker Sweet och det fanns överallt! Pro Butiken är fylld med ordinarie sortiment men också PRO produkter som är perfekt för freelancers eller tjo alla. Butiken är faktiskt en av de största Pro butiker i världen, whoohoo! Jag älskar att den finns på samma gata som min gamla jobbställe, Sephora, så är man sminksugen, Biblioteksgatan har mycket att erbjuda!

An Evening with Elixir Cosmeceuticals

Elixir Cosmeceutivals invited me and an intimate group of women to take a closer look at their products and also to try their latest 30% Glycolic Acid Peeling Treatment (which of course I had to get done!)

Elixir Cosmecuticals Event

They surved Panini Wraps in Ceasar Chicken and Salmon. Yums!

Elixir Cosmecuticals Event

As you may know I have used Elixir skincare the past month so this was the perfect opportunity to let you know the progress of the products. If you’d like to read that post, I’ll link it here.

Elixir Cosmecuticals Event
Our hosts for the evening, Kornelia & Sanna

Elixir Cosmecuticals Event

Elixir Cosmeceuticals is a brand from Norway and thhey are result based skincare that works on your skin’s condition and not type which is fantastic since you are able to work on the problems that are more suited for YOU and not everyone else’s problems. In addition, the skincare brand is not readily available in any store but rather in specific skincare clinics and stores in which a skin therapist would be able to analyze your skin properly so you have a chance to bring the correct products home. Love! Above you can see that they even have a machine that looks at pigmentation, sun damage and other skin issues you may have in order to recommend the products for you!
There are 150 salons now that carry the brand in Scandinavia in which 11 stores in Sweden and have been available for 2 years already.

Elixir Cosmecuticals Event
Sorry for the horrible moving photo above, here you can see Sanna applying the 30% Glycolic Acid Peeling Treatment on a beauty colleague of mine. It was my turn afterwards and if you follow me on snapchat, you would have seen that I turned into a tomato after she applied the treatment on my skin. It was warm, a bit itchy but still quite comfortable afterwards. After a few hours my face went back to normal and I applied some smoothing cream just to calm it down a bit more. When I woke up in the morning I was GLOOOWWINNGGG!

Have you tried Elixir cosmecuticals? What is your favorite product? I am really digging the Niactil 4% as well as the Elixir Pads 10%.

Jag var bjuden till en event med Elixir Cosmecuticals där vi fått höra om märket och även testa på deras 30% glykolsyra peeling treatment. Jag själv har kört märket i en månad nu och verkligen älskar hur min hud har blivit sen jag började med produkterna. Jag självklart testade peelingen och kan säga att jag såg ut som en tomat i några timmar men sen fått jag finaste glöd! Det jag gillar med märket är att de utgår från hud tillstånd och inte hudtyp som gör att man får produkter som är verkligen anpassat till DIN hud och inte till ALLAS hud. Utöver så Elixir är inte tillgänglig överallt då hudteraputer har möjlighet att kunna analysera verkligen huden för att då ge kunden bästa servicen. 

Har du testat Elixir? Vad gillar du mest? Jag älskar Niactil 4% och även Elixir Pads 10%.

My Top 8 Highlights of DaisyBeautyLondon2016

DaisyBeautyLondon 2016

My feet has touched down on slush snow & the weather makes me want to turn around & go back! I can already warn you now that most of the photos in this post are quite grainy since, well. As Highlights… Those are the moments to live and not record and live later…

DaisyBeautyLondon 2016
crap phone quality

DaisyBeautyLondon2016 was my first trip to the UK & it was filled with amazing people and fantastic brands. Here are my Top 8 Highlights of the Trip…

DaisyBeautyLondon 2016

crap Snapchat quality

1*I had the chance to bunk with Amanda who is a bubbly & kind blogger whom I got along with very well, so many laughs & memories!

Lesson learnt:

* If one of our room cards are working, the other one won’t.
* Talking or hearing the other person is impossible on the Tube during Rush Hour & especially when they have the windows open.
* Westfield Mall Reception needs to take a walk around & actually know what stores are available.

I didn’t get to see much of London as the other groups of bloggers/brands did, but I did get some good quality time with Amanda & Gabriella. I felt so at home with my Skåne girls so thank you so much making me feel a part of the group!

2*The letsfaceit/ IDUN girlsAida & Caroline took us to Christophers & we had a great meal! I just have one price for you: “400,000 Euro.” Speaking of firsts, I also tried my first IDUN product this weekend so I’m excited to try more & share!

DaisyBeautyLondon 2016 DaisyBeautyLondon 2016

3*The main reason Amanda & I went to Westfield was because the Models Own store was located there. I met Heather (Poppypolish) who kicked up so much inspiration in me for my new job & ambitions so that was worth the 20 minute trip out!crap Snapchat quality

4*I allowed TheBrowGal Tonya near my brows & I wanted to take so much knowledge from her brain & put it into mine. She was so humble & my brows were seriously on fleek! Now I just need to practice the new technique I learnt from her!DaisyBeautyLondon 2016

5*L’Oréal also stuck out for me this trip; if you followed me before leaving to London, I got snowed in on Wednesday so I missed the NYX event with Karen Sarahi Gonzalez (iluvsarahiiand so I found out that their PR person brought my goodiebag ALL THE WAY TO LONDON with the intention that I could get it (though we missed each other quite a bit haha). It’s thoughtful gestures like hers that I’m just so thankful for! Hopefully it arrives by post soon so I can show y’all!

DaisyBeautyLondon 2016

6* Being present at the Remembrance Sunday Cenotaph Service and Parade. Seeing all the people who came out to remember those who passed and all the poppy flowers everywhere. Its something I wont forget!

7*Ah-Mazing-Food. I couldn’t have picked better places and better people to eat with. Though I did sit basically alone on our first dinner out. *boohoo*

London Calling! | Daisy Beauty London 2016

Daisy Beauty is calling & I’m jetsetting to London for their annual #DaisyBeautyLondon2016 conference! I have had the most amazing opportunities to travel with Daisy Beauty to Palma, to Rome & now to England! This year the conference will be held at the Kingsway Hall Hotel that apparently is quite close to Oxford Street and easy to get to other sights!

Cover FX has made it to Sweden | Event with Derek Selby

Cover FX has made it to Sweden! Finally is my answer! I have been using Cover FX for YEARS and it’s been so difficult to get a hold of my products so I am super excited that the brand has finally entered the market.

presskontakterna cover fx event

Cover FX is a disruptive, innovative brand that works on complexion! What I love about Cover FX is that they work so closely with how the products are created and therefore allows them to improve and create products that work for every person.

I was invited in to listen to Darek Selby, the brand ambassador and beauty expert! I could have listened to him and his tips for DAAAYYSS. Love the fact that he was able to encompass everything that I saw Cover FX to be. One thing that he mentioned is that all their products are color coordinated which means that if you want to switch between powder to cream or cream to drops or drops to just a concealer… Everything is coded in a way that you will get the exact same color no matter what type of product you want!

The colors are divided into G (Golden) P (Pink) & N (Neutral). Pink is not very pink either so even if you have a pink undertone, you can still wear the P shades! I am actually a mixture of 3 shades: I have N20 in the coldest and darkest months of the year. Then I have N30 when I’m at my base color and lastly I have G30 for Swedish Summers.

There are heros/bestsellers of the brand that maybe many of you have already seen or heard of. The First are the Custom Drops (469kr). These work for ALL skintypes and ALL skintones. This is one of my hero products, especially when I travel. The small bottle, the drop format and the endless possibilities.

I must also just say, the Custom Enhancer Drops are to die for!  They come in 6 colors at the moment & are $42 (~375kr) . They were completely sold out when I was in the US during their release and now they will be releasing 3 more (that I did not get the name of wah!) but this is how they look like!

There are so many primers available as well! There is an eye primer (389kr) but also face primers (389kr) for different concerns: Anti-Age, Redness, Calming & even Illuminating. We also got a sneak peek into the latest illuminating product: An Illuminating Face Mist! It gave a very subtle shimmer to my hand. Love!

presskontakterna cover fx event

I can’t not mention the Mineral Foundation (399kr)! This was one of my first purchases from Cover FX and will not be my last. It is so pigmented so very little goes a long way!

Will you be buying anything new from Cover FX? What are your favorite base products?

presskontakterna cover fx eventphoto from Presskontakterna

Åh! äntligen är Cover FX i Sverige! Jag har älskat märket i många år men ganska skönt att kunna bara beställa hem direkt istället för att leta efter en familjmedlem att skicka från USA haha. Vi var bjuden att lyssna på Derek Selby, en fantastisk människa och artist som jobbar jätte nära med produkterna på Cover FX.

En sak som är så bra med Cover FX sortimentet är att den jobbar med en bra färg system där oavsett vilken produkt du väljer så kommer du ha samma färg i andra formatet. Så om du vill ha Custom Drops men för tillfället använder pudret så är det bara att välja samma nr! Utöver så är de uppdelat med bokstaver: G (golden) P (Pink) N (Neutral)

Vi fått kolla in på sortimentet så först fått vi se lite nyheter i smyg. Jag tog bilder på nya custom enhance drops i 3 nya färger men jag fått tyvärr inte namn på dem. Custom Drop foundationen är väldigt känd och är nåt jag själv har använt i många år. Tycker den är så lätt att resa med och det finns så mycket man kan göra med den. Det finns hur många primers som helst, en för ögonen och sen finns det för anti-age, calming, illuminating osv. Speaking of, han också visade en ny illuminating spray! koolt. Sist så finns det också mineral puder foundation som är super täckande!

Kommer du klicka hem några nyheter? Vad använder du för bas?

Where to Buy: SkinCity.se

Thankyou to Presskontakterna for this awesome opportunity to meet Derek
& play a bit more with the brand!
