I tried the Breast Mask from KocoStar….

Kocostar has come to Sephora Scandi and they released their Hydrogel Eye mask and Breast Mask in the Camouflage Series. Of course I had to try the Breast Mask so this is what I experienced…

And no. You can forget me posting before and after photos of my breasts but I can write a bit about the product and what I thought after I used the one time mask.

/Kocostar har kommit till Sephora Scandi och de släppte sin Hydrogel Eye mask och bröstmask i Camouflage serien. Naturligtvis var jag tvungen att testa bröstmasken och nej. Du kan glömma att jag kommer lägga ut före och efter bilder på mina bröst men jag kan skriva om produkten och min upplevelse.

The Brand Kocostar

I have seen Kocostar at Cocopanda and even at H&M so it was a surprise to see the camouflage series come to Sephora Scandi and only 2 products at the moment. Kocostar stands for “Korea Cosmetic Star” which is a korean brand that has masks for basically everything.
/Jag har sett Kocostar på Cocopanda och även på H&M så det var en överraskning att se kamouflageserien kommer till Sephora Scandi och bara 2 produkter för tillfället. Kocostar står för “Korea Cosmetic Star” som är ett koreanskt varumärke som har masker för i stort sett allting.


From what I gather online, the camouflage series has the HydroGel Eye patches and the Breast Mask which have come to Sephora Scandi but also a nose strip, face mask and even a Belly Mask.
/Från vad jag har läst online så har kamouflageserien olika produkter som HydroGel Eye-patcherna och bröstmasken som har kommit till Sephora Scandi, och även en nose strip, ansiktsmask och till och med en Belly Mask.

Breast Mask

The Kocostar Breast Mask (kr) is a mask that claims to effectively moisturize and firm breast skin. In the instructions, it is said to shower then apply a toner to the breasts THEN apply the mask. It should sit for 20-30 minutes then massaged.
/Kocostar Bröstmask är en mask som säger att det är effektivt med återfuktning och fast brösthud. Det står i instruktionerna att du ska duscha och applicera en toner på brösten, och sen applicerar masken. Det bör sitta i 20-30 minuter sedan masseras.


Pretty camouflage colors and they are a good size for my breasts but I can imagine if you are petite, they may not sit as well. They go around the nipple so i started under the breast then applied upwards, overlapping the top part. It stated 20-30 minutes but I kept them on for around 45 minutes. They sat well and did not move – I also had a shirt over and it was fine.
/Riktigt snygga camouflage färger och de är en bra storlek för mina bröst men jag kan tänka mig om du är i modell mindre så kanske de sitter inte lika bra. De går runt bröstvårtan så jag började under bröstet och applicerades uppåt och överlappade överdelen. Det står att det ska sitta i ca. 20-30 minuter men jag hade den kvar i ca. 45 minuter. De satt väl och rörde inte sig – jag hade också en tröja på och det gick bra.

My Thoughts

Removing the mask was easy and the skin felt cold, a tad bit moisturized but the firming bit…well. not so much. Its hard to review such a product since it is a one time use product. I would say that if you want to be just a little bit Extra…this is a product for you. But if you are looking for a firming product, I wouldnt say this is it.
/När jag tog av masken så huden var kall och det kändes bra men jag tror inte att det gjorde nåt med firming delen. Om du vill vara lite extra, denna är en produkt för dig!

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 Brallis.se 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?

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?
/Vad är dina tankar om denna kollektion? Kommer du att köpa några av dessa produkter?

Going Nude with Isadora * Spring 2018

I just recently got engaged and so wedding inspiration is basically everywhere for me. We have been looking into color schemes and when I was painting the nail wheel for this collection, I felt that the colors in this collection would suite wedding season very well.
/Jag blev just förlovad och så är bröllopsinspiration är i stort sett överallt. Vi har tittat på färgschema och när jag målade nagelhjulet för denna kollektion så kände jag att färgerna i denna kollektion skulle passa bröllopsäsongen!
