A Blue Bliss Summer with Isadora

I am missing the Blue Skies probably as much as you have missed my makeup looks….?
/Saknar ni mina makeup looks lika mycket som jag saknar blå himmel?

 / Products Sent are marked with a *

This is a bit of an old look I created a few days before we left for Las Vegas so my hair is not the same nor am I… It has been a few months since I posted makeup looks here and it has mainly been because I have been battling some personal stuff. Today’s look is using Isadora’s Blue Bliss Summer Collection 2017.
/Detta är en look jag skapade några dagar innan vi åkte till Las Vegas så mitt hår är inte detsamma och inte jag heller… Det har varit några månader sedan jag la upp en makeup look här och det har främst varit på grund av att jag har kämpat med några personliga saker. I dagens look använder Isadora’s Blue Bliss Summer Collection 2017.

With that, Would you like to see more looks? What products would you like to see in action?

Chrome, Prisms and Oils with IsaDora (Spring 2017)

Last Tuesday I was invited to hang out with IsaDora for breakfast to view their latest Chrome Nails among other new Spring products. This Spring you will find Chrome, Glow and Oils with Isadora.

/I tisdags var jag inbjuden till frukost med IsaDora för att se deras Chrome Nails & nya produkter. Chrome, Glow och oljor kommer syns under våren 2017.

Chrome

The first is already out in stores IsaDora Chrome Nails which is right on trend! LED lights are in the past with this powder from IsaDora. I can even do my chrome nails in the dark and in just a few minutes! The Fixing Top Coat is a must in order to keep the chrome shine otherwise it would not lock the powder onto the nail.
/Den första är redan ute i butikerna och heter IsaDora Chrome Nails som är rätt på trenden! LED-lampor är i det förflutna! Jag kan även göra mina Chrome naglar i mörkret och på några minuter! Fixing Top Coat är ett måste för att hålla glansen annars skulle det inte låsa pulver på naglarna.

It comes in one silver shade which can be paired together with any polish, and each polish gives a different effect.
/Det kommer i en silver nyans som kan paras ihop med vilken lack som helst och varje lack ger en annan effekt.

Get the Glow

Week 19 (May 8-14 2017) you will find Glow for face, lips and nails with the Get the Glow collection. My favorite was the Face Glow Prism Wheel which is a highlighter wheel with prism colors that have been all the rave so I see a trend coming! L’Oréal has theirs and of course Kat Von D’s Alchemist palette so I am super excited to try this one out too!
/Vecka 19 (8-14 Maj 2017) finns Glow för ansiktet, läppar och naglar med Get the Glow Collection. Min favorit var Face Glow Prism Wheel som är en highlighter hjul med prisma färger.L’Oréal har deras och naturligtvis Kat Von Ds Alchemist palett som är också på trend nu så jag är super excite att prova denna!

In this collection you will also find Shimmery nail polishes. I can imagine these are quite unicorn: gorgeous on their own but beautiful over other polishes!
/I kollektionen hittar du också skimmer nagellack. Jag kan tänka mig det är ganska unicorn: gorgeous på egen hand, men vacker över andra lack!

There is also lip glitter to be put over gloss which is an interesting concept! I personally am not much for the jar but who can say no to glitter lips?!
/Det finns också läpp glitter som sättas över glans som är ett intressant koncept! Personligen är jag inte mycket för burken men vem kan säga nej till glittrig läppar?!

And of course the beautiful Gloss Glacé giving a 3D mirror effect.
/och även dessa fina Gloss Glacé som ger 3D spegeleffekt.

Lip Oils and that…

IsaDora’s lip oil has been very popular and now they have also come out with 4 new shades: Rose, Pink Berry, Mandarin and Coral.
/IsaDora lip oil har varit mycket populära och nu har de även kommit ut med 4 nya nyanser: Rose, Pink Berry, Mandarin och Coral.

Andd… by the way! IsaDora will be releasing their first Face Mist! Unfortunately no date on this one yet but interesting product as it does not have a scent and has good spray on it so I cannot wait to try this one out myself. (Sorry, didnt notice the blur in the photo…)
/Förresten! IsaDora kommer att släppa sitt första Face Mist! Tyvärr inget datum på den här ännu, men intressant produkt eftersom det inte har en doft och har bra spray på det så jag kan inte vänta med att prova detta själv!

Is there anything from IsaDora this Spring you are looking forward to trying?
/Är det någonting från kollektionen du är sugen på att testa?

WOW! Moschino Pink Fresh Couture

Just WOW! Thank you Alf Sörensen for the most beautiful press sample and my first unique delivery this year!

Moschino has come out with a new fragrance, Pink Fresh Couture (385kr/30ml) and it looks like the original Fresh scent but smells more floral! As you can see, mine came with a pink bucket, a pink cloth and a pink sponge… Seriously how cute?! Those who know me know that Im not much for pink but in this case I make an exception! SO cool!!

The fragrance includes notes of pink grapefruit, black currant, Lily of the valley. In the heart there is Rose, pink hyacint, and pomegranate and in the base some musk, ambroxa and cederwood. I love Ambroxa, it gives this scent a bit more warmth instead of just floral. 

This was seriously a surprise and I loved the pink bucket and accessories that came with the fragrance home to me! You can get a hold of this fragrance week 14 and can e found at Åhléns, Kicks, private perfumeries and a few places online. I love my missoni that I received earlier but this one is definitely making its way into my daily routine as the ambroxia scent is a favorite of mine!

/Jag fått världens rosa utskick ifrån Alf Sörensen och är sååå tacksam för denna överraskning! Doften är från Moschino och är Pink Fresh Couture (385kr/30ml). Den innehåller ros grapefrukt, svarata vinbär, liljekonvalj, granatäpple, rosa hyacint, ,ros, och sist i basen: cederträ, ambroxan och musk. Denna fina blommiga doft lanserar vecka 14 och hos Åhlens, kicks och några utvalda butiker och online affärer. Jag älskar min missoni som är också väldigt lätt blommigt men denna som innehåller ambroxan kommer också används mycket nu under våren!

DaisyBeauty Awards 2017

Today, the first ever DaisyBeauty Awards will kick off and I am very excited to take part in this amazing event not only as a jury member and beauty blogger but also as part of the DaisyBeauty Team!

The invitation is so beautiful, my favorite color of a purple-ish burgundy with gold detailing and the inside looks like my absolute favorite product: an eyeshadow palette! How fitting? As it contains sensitive information I will not post the contents but geez! SO COOL.

As all events, I will bring you all along and hopefully my top pick for this year’s best mask would win! :)

Summary Sunday: DaisyExpo 2017

What a weekend! Daisy Expo has always been the number one highlight of the year! It’s the first big bang in the winter gloom and this year it is just that extra special because I too am now a part of the Daisy Beauty Gang!

daisyexpo16

I will be starting with Daisy Beauty as their Sales Rep together with Kicki, Sam & Beauty By K. I am very excited for this opportunity (and quite nervous too!) and cannot wait to share my experiences with you all! As for now, my blog will stay here and I will take a look at options if I would like to move to the Daisy Portal or stay on my own domain. Let me know in the comments what you think I should do? 

Anyway on to the more interesting stuff! DaisyExpo 2017! Though I was invited as a blogger, I was able to jump right in and help out! I did of course keep my camera handy though! The first day was lectures and unfortunately I only got to sit in one of them, the rest of my day went to help set up the exhibition for the day after so this post is all about day 2 of the Expo!

Day 2: DaisyExpo 2017

Lets start on the bottom floor!

DaisyExpo 2017

Garnier had the most beautiful flower arrangements! I snapped the whole progression and it was just fantastic to see the final result of the room! They released four new series in the Respons and one of them has Maple extract and castor oil! It says to detangle, revitalize and care so I am super excited to be able to try it out!

DaisyExpo 2017
Akademikliniken was also present with their latest Pure Glow Oil (ca. 1700kr/30ml) and they also had competitions throughout the day! The Pure Glow oil is a highly concentrated Vitamin C that works against early aging and also works on lustre and elasticity.

DaisyExpo 2017

New to this year is Cinq Mōndes! I got in contact with this brand I believe a year or so ago so it was great having them present! Cinq Mōndes Spa Paris is a beautiful French Spa brand which is created by Jean-Louis Poiroux.

DaisyExpo 2017A return was from Kiss with their new Blooming lashes, Fabby Style with their glass nail files, and Vita Liberata with a 10 minute mask… but this time they also had a new brand called AtacheThe brand has 30 years of experience within Dermatology and was founded in 1983 with ASAC pharma.

DaisyExpo 2017

Speaking of Paris, Farao from Dior held mini fragrance trainings in the Diro room. I thought that their worksamples were so freakin exclusive! And not to mention their new Spring Collection is so colorful and all about the Gradations! PS: did you know that Dior has now Boy George and Rami Malek as new faces of Dior?! Mums!

DaisyExpo 2017

Rosenserien was a stand full of smiles! This brand is a swedish organic skincare brand and I love their lipbalms! They have just released the lavender one (again!) and I would love to give that one a try! (Though I do have the other 4 in every pocket and bag haha!)

DaisyExpo 2017Ellos was a newcomer to the Expo and they had a mini living room that was super cozy! They servered these huge gorgeous looking cupcakes too! Makiash also was a part of the Ellos stand and I can honestly say that I have never tried anything from the brand (nor from Ellos for that matter!). I would love to give that loose powder and that highlighter a whirl from Makiash but also the Take a shower products from Ellos Beauty!

DaisyExpo 2017

L’Occitane is a brand I haven’t had all that much contact with but the ladies were so welcoming and the room smelt like a french spa! I loved the tranquility they set up in their room and they were offering hand massages!

DaisyExpo 2017

Another favorite room was Scandinavian Cosmetics with Escada, Tweezerman, Max Factor and even Lacoste! Escada is celebrating 25 years of summer frangraces with their latest: Fiesta Carioca (420kr/30ml)! They also demoed the two new Lacoste L.12.12 fragrances for him and her AND also had the amazing Makeup Artist Tomas Lenneryd who you can see here doing Kicki’s makeup with Max Factor!

DaisyExpo 2017

Also new for this year was Toni & Guy with Alf Sörensen. I have had much contact with Alf Sörensen during my Sephora days and it was awesome to see that they have gotten the haircare brand. The room smelt yummy AND they were also serving scones!

Whew! I hope you all are still with me?

Let’s take the stairs to the second floor!

DaisyExpo 2017

Derma ProMedical is also new and they took bookings- They also had this awesome LED mask that could be used in treatments. You can see Monas Universum trying it out above! They also introduced the Tebiskin products which are new to me so hopefully I would be able to try them out soon!

DaisyExpo 2017
I was so excited to see that Yves Rocher was at the expo this year! They had a beautiful room filled with greens! They had white flowers that decorated around their products and they even took in these awesome Mojito Paralines that looked like dinosaur eggs! Guests also had the opportunity to get their skin scanned at Yves Rocher.

DaisyExpo 2017

Palina was also great to see since I bumped into them at other exhibitions earlier. They worked on new skincare which they then presented at this years expo! How awesome is that? The packaging is so colorful but classy! I had my eye on the Fairy Scrub and the Overnight Mask haha!

DaisyExpo 2017

Olaplex was the perfect lounge area! They spoke of their step 3 (259kr) and the women there were so fun to be around too!

DaisyExpo 2017
Guests had the opportunity in doing a skinscan at Eucerin and set up a new skincare routine! I personally was very interested in their sun products haha! I am obsessed with sunscreen and I saw that they had a 50+ sun fluid (129kr/50ml) that is mattifying for the face and for sensitive skin!

DaisyExpo 2017
Apoteket‘s set up was elegant in mirrored black! This matches their products super well but gosh, a bit difficult to photograph! I have not personally tried their products (yet) but they looked super interesting!

DaisyExpo 2017
GHD had amazing stylists who offered to do some blowouts, here you see Alexander working his magic!

DaisyExpo 2017
Revlon is also a newbie at this year’s expo and I loved that they used the scene in the screening room! They set up and made beautiful curls! Here you can see the beauty Amanda getting her hair done! They recently released their Be Fabulous series!

DaisyExpo 2017
Here you can see Tanja from L.Y.X Cosmetics fixing some Lacqua & La Chrome on Linnea Öst. I personally am obsessed with L.Y.X and love the women and the concept behind the brand.

DaisyExpo 2017
Acasia Skincare is new for me and my (now) coworker Beauty By K wrote about them earlier so I can’t wait to try them out on my skin!

DaisyExpo 2017
M Picaut released the Hydra Lagoon Overnight Mask (499kr/50ml) that has Malachite, Niacimide and Hyaluronic Acid. I was able to take one home on the first day and tried it. It did have a strong scent BUT worked wonders on my extremely tired skin! I need to try it longer before I can completely comment.

DaisyExpo 2017
AnneMarie Börlind released three new masks: Anti-Aging Cream Mask, 2 in 1 Black mask and Hydro Gel Mask! I am seriously needing the latter two!

DaisyExpo 2017
L’Orèal stood for the most out of this world transformation from conference room to Paris Apartment! They even covered the windows to make it look very parisienne AND there was even a parisienne living there during the expo! How cool is that? They released loads of new cleansers, makeup and I am loving the new Botanical Series! I will probably do a separate post showing all these news!

I had an incredible two days and I really hope the guests and exhibitors also had a great time. Let me know what you’d like to see more of. What brand are you looking forward to reading about here?
