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:

Photo from Allison Jacobs on YouTube

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.

What do you think of Dupe Brands like Beauty Glazed?

Just a review of Benefit Bad Gal BANG Mascara

Benefit released their latest mascara – Benefit Bad Gal BANG Mascara. Here are my two cents on the mascara.
/Benefit släppte sin senaste mascara – Benefit Bad Gal BANG Mascara. Här är mina två cents.

The Packaging

The Benefit Bad Gal BANG Mascara is Space, Galaxy, Black & Pink. With all the teasing they did, the packaging was not very surprising – it has all the claims on it and the product itself comes in a matte-like tube with studs on the handle. It is a nicely packaged product!
/Benefit Bad Gal BANG Mascara är Space, Galaxy, Svart & rosa. Med all reklam de gjorde så var förpackningen inte särskilt överraskande – den har alla claims på den och själva produkten kommer i ett mattliknande rör med studs på handtaget. Det är en snyggt förpackad produkt!


Benefit Bad Gal BANG Mascara is promoted as a 36 hour “full-blast” volume mascara that gives massive volume without weighing the lashes. The product has aero-particles derived from space technology. It has a Slimpact brush to reach from root to tip. The mascara is said to be smudgeproof, water-resistant and volumizing. It even has ProVitamin B5 for thickness and strength.
/Benefits Bad Gal BANG Mascara sägs att vara en 36-timmars “full blast” volym mascara som ger massiv volym utan att tynga ner fransarna. Produkten har aeropartiklar från rymdteknik. Den har en Slimpact borste för att nå från rot till topp. Mascara sägs vara smudgeproof, inte vattenfast men vattenresistent och ger volym. Det har även ProVitamin B5 för tjocklek och styrka.


No mascara / Utan mascara

1 Swipe /Ett lager

2 Swipes / 2 Lager

(Left with 2 swipes, Right with 1 swipe)
/Vänster har 2 lager, höger med bara 1 lager

My Verdict

With one swipe I noticed instant volume and my lashes did not feel heavy. It took awhile to get use to the brush as I got mascara on my nose and inner eye areas with it. Personally, I do not like the spider leg look and this mascara tends to clump my lashes together. To get the separation I want, I used a clean mascara wand to separate the lashes. They did give my lashes length and dramatic volume which I really like.
/Med en svep märkte jag omedelbar volym och mina ögonfransar kände inte tunga. Det tog ett tag att använda borsten när jag fick mascara på min näsa och inre ögonområden med den. Personligen tyckte jag inte om spindelben fransar och denna mascara tenderar att klumpa ihop mina ögonfransar. För att få den separationen jag vill ha så använde jag en ren mascara-wand för att separera fransarna. De gav mina fransar längd och dramatisk volym som jag verkligen gillar.

I felt that I got a bit of fall out from the mascara and if I touch my lashes, I do get a few clumps from the mascara even after it has dried. I have not tested the 36 hours. No one should wear mascara that long anyway!
/Jag kände att jag fick lite fall-out från mascaran och om jag rör mina ögonfransar så får jag klumpar, även efter att den har torkat. Jag har inte testat de 36 timmarna men ingen borde ha på sig mascara så länge ändå!

It does well on the weightless feel and the volume and even the brush is quite nice. I felt my lashes were longer and they did look nice after I brushed through them. I like separation and lift over clumpy volume. Unfortunately, this mascara was just not for me though.
/Mascaran är bra på den lätta känsla och volym och även borsten är ganska bra. Jag kände att mina ögonfransar var längre och de såg bra ut bara efter jag borste genom dem. Jag gillar separation och lyfter över klumpig volym. Tyvärr var denna mascara inte för mig. Vill du ha en volym mascara, detta är nåt att testa.

If you are looking for a new volume mascara, this is one to try.

Price: 280kr
Where to Buy: Sephora.se
Verdict: 3/5

I purchased this product myself.

Some News came in…

I have been MIA on here since I have just had WAAAAYY too much happening at work and in my private life so I just had to take a mini break.

On my Insta-stories I showed just a few products I have gotten in recently and I thought I would just show them here too. I will get around to doing swatches and play with them more soon.

/Jag har fått in några nyheter och då jag har haft för mycket på jobbet och privat så har jag inte hunnit gå genom allting. Jag gjorde en Insta-stories och visade upp produkterna där men tänkte det skulle vara bra att visa er här också.

New Lashes will be making their way and I am super excited to try these out! Beehive is a full out volume lash whereas Pixie is volume and separation.
/Nya fransar från KISS – Pixie och Beehive!


These are not the only two nails that I got a hold of from KISS but they are super pretty! I love imPRESS since they are easy to apply and easy to exchange. I always get compliments when I have Glam Fantasy nails on and the new ones are just beautiful!

From work, I was given the White Chocolate Bar! It just smells like chocolate and has cooler tones. More swatches and that to come, I promise!
/Från jobbet fått jag den White Chocolate Bar. Den doftar gott och har kallare toner. Jag lovar jag kommer swatcha och göra looks med denna!


The new 7 day collection is just dreamy and spring and gorgeous! I picked out 3 favorites already but I must get these on my nails NOW.
/7 Day kollektionen från Depend har kommit in och fy va snygga de är! Jag får vårkänslor av de och har redan hittat 3 favoriter.


I saw these at work and I am super intrigued! The brush bends and they give length, volume and separation.
/Jag såg Shiseidos mascara på jobbet och jag var super sugen på att testa så de skickade de till mig för att testa! 


At the Daisy Expo, I was talking to Lina from Palina about SPF and moisture for my skin so they sent this baby to me and I CANNOT wait to try it.
/På Daisy Expo så pratade jag med Lina från Palina om skydd och SPF… så hon skickade Hellow Sunshine till mig! Jag LÄNGTAR efter att testa!

A Tour around Daisy Beauty Expo 2018

Yesterday, Daisy Beauty Expo happened which is a Beauty Exhibition in which the Swedish Beauty Community is invited to meet up with over 50 companies.

I was so honored to be able to take part again this year and there were many… many brands & faces that I was so happy to meet! Unfortunately my camera ran out of battery half way through the day but at least my phone has decent quality photos! Here is a look into what I saw at the Expo this year.

/Daisy Beauty Expo gick av stapeln och det var en fantastisk event där influensers och företag kan träffas och prata skönhet och nyheter och det är bästa tillfälle att bara hänga och lära känna branschen. Tyvärr så batteriet i kameran tog slut men tur min telefon ger ändå helt ok kvalité. Gärna lämna ett kommentar om det finns någonting ni vill se eller veta mer om!

Let me know in the comments if you want me to talk more about a specific product or brand!


Absolutely beautiful and they outdid themselves again this year with a Paris themed room and each product group had its own side of the room! They even thad 3 Vänner ice cream served and gorgeous sitting where you do feel like you are on a Parisienne Street.


Ah. Marielle! I loved that they booked us in for a Do it Yourself Serum! Mine was very similar to their latest Fairy Drops Serum!


YES YES YES TO ALL THINGS RETRO! Depend decorated with Glitter Balloons, and they were dressed to KILL! They were inspired by their latest release Studio 54 which unfortunately got lost on the way home to me so I haven’t got a hold of the polishes yet… But they look amazing.

I got my nails did in their Summer collection to be released later in the year.. And I got some Hanna Lashes put on too!

Me oh My! So many new fragrances will be coming this year.. My specific Favorites is the new Chloé and Elie Saab’s new fragrances!

Kerstin Florian is known for their skincare and they will be releasing a new range of beauty products including a concealer, CC cream and foundation.


So many new launches from BareMinerals that you will start seeing in stores already by February-March. New BarePro Concealers are high on my list to try!

KISS NY PRO was representing with their new makeup line that I have wrote about quite a few times now. They also have sheet masks that are worth checking out.


My favorite Skincare brand from Norway was also present and I am in love with their products still.


I love Lina from Palina. She knows her ingredients and gives everything to her brand which I know I can trust. The new masks from her line have been skin-saving after trying some masks that irritated my skin. She allowed me to try a few of her new products and I cannot wait to share with you more soon!

Other New Launches for 2018!

What are you looking forward to seeing more of in 2018? What would you like me to dive more into in further blogposts?

Let’s Compare! Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick vs Sephora Cream Lip Stain

I love a matte lip. I love a matte lip that sits and looks great. I love Kat Von D’s Liquid Lipsticks… but I do love Sephoras Cream Lip Stains too! Today I will compare the two!

/Jag älskar en matte läpp och en som sitter bra. Jag har älskat Kat Von Ds liquid läppsitfter…men jag också gillar Sephoras Cream lip stains! Idag ska vi kika på både.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks (220kr)

The Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks was one of a kind until almost all brands had a similar type of matte lip product. What I liked about the Kat Von D lipsticks were that they truly sat well on my lips and did not look or feel dry. (And yes, I know that many have said that they are very drying but everyone to their own!) I loved the color range and I love the look of the longer thinner tube.
/Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks var först av sitt slag men nu finns det på nästan alla märken. Vad jag gillade med KvDs var att de satt bra på mina läppar och kände inte torr (även om jätte många tycker de gör det på dem.. alla upplever olika!). Jag gillade färgskalan och tunnare tuben.

Sephora Cream Lip Stains (125kr)

The Sephora Cream Lip Stains are super affordable and come in so many shades and is also updated every season which is great. I feel that these dry slower on the lip but feel comfortable and sit all day long. I buy these for travel as again, the tube is easy to slip into a pair of jeans or in a smaller purse.
/Sephora cream Lip Stains är super bra i pris och kommer också i många olika nyanser. De uppdaterar varje säsong typ. De torkar långsammare på läppen men känns skönt och sitter bra under dagen. Jag köper dessa när jag reser då de är super lätt att ha i fickan och kostar inte mycket!

A Similar Match

(Please excuse the dry lips… Its just that time of year.)

Here are the two product shades I use the most: Kat Von D’s LoveCraft & Sephora’s Cream Lipstain in nr. 13 Marvelous Mauve. Marvelous Mauve is just slightly darker but almost unnoticeable when applied on my lips.
/Här finns 2 produkt färger som jag använder mycket: KvD LoveCraft och Sephora i nr. 13 Marvelous Mauve. Marvelous Mauve är lite mörkare men det syns knappt på läpparna.

The Comparison


Kat Von D


220kr / 6.6ml

125kr / 6ml

Long Thin Tube

Short Thick Tube

‘waxy’ scent

vanilla scent

ca. 32 colors to date

ca. 30 colors to date

A tad drier in consistency

Dry but ok consistency

The Verdict

Personally, I feel the difference comes down to price and the color range. I love both liquid lipsticks and recommend them both. I love the feel of both and I find that they both sit very well on my very dry lips. With that said, Sephora has a few extra points for being more affordable and the color range cannot be beat!
/Personligen jag känner att de är olika när det kommer till pris och färgskalan annars både är fantastiska och jag kan rekommendera både. Jag tycker både sitter bra på mina torra läppar men Sephora får några extra poäng då de kostar mindre och har massor av nyanser att välja ifrån!

Which one do you prefer? What is your favorite color from both ranges?
/Vilken gillar du mer? Vilken är din favorit färg från både märken?

My Black Friday Purchase * Violet Voss Taupe Notch Palette

I have been a fan of Violet Voss Palettes and really wanted to try the Matte about You palette. I decided on picking up 2 palettes: Matte about You and Taupe Notch but unfortunately only one of the palettes made its way home to me.

/Jag har varit en fan av Violet Voss Palettes och ville verkligen testa Matte about You Paletten. Jag bestämde mig för att köpa 2 paletter: Matte about You och Taupe Notch men tyvärr kom bara en av paletterna hem till mig.

With that said, I am impressed with the Taupe Notch palette and wanted to show you how it looks like and my initial thoughts!
/Jag är imponerad med Taupe Notch paletten så jag ville visa er den och mina initiala tankar kring paletten.

20 Eyeshadows housed in a slim, medium-large palette that adds to the vass amount of neutral palettes already out there.

I have used and loved the Holy Grail palette from Violet Voss and so I of course wanted to try a new palette and so I clicked this one home. The palette is filled with taupes, bronze shades, browns, mattes and shimmers… Anything you could need for a neutral go-to look.
/Jag har använt och älskat Holy Grail paletten från Violet Voss och så ville jag naturligtvis prova en ny palett och så klickade jag på den här. Paletten är fylld med taupes, bronze nyanser, bruna, matt och skimmer … Allt en kan behöva för en neutral go-look.

They swatch intensively and pigmented just like the holy grail did and they wear very well on the eyes. I do notice that the Violet Voss shadows in general dust a little but not enough that I reacted to it when applying on the lid.
/De swatchar intensivt och är pigmenterade – precis som Holy Grail och de håller riktigt bra på ögonen. Jag märker att Violet Voss-skuggorna dammar lite men inte tillräckligt att jag reagerade på det när jag la de på locket.

Row 1
Row 2
Row 3
Row 4

I am happy with this palette and I know it will come to great use this year! World Class, Supreme, Prime and MVP are absolutely fab colors in my opinion and make the palette worth purchasing.
/Jag är riktigt nöjd med paletten och vet att denna kommer användas flitigt. World Class, Supreme, Prime och MVP är favoriterna och gör paletten värt att köpa.

What are your thoughts on this palette? Would you buy this one?
Vad tycks? Skulle du köpa denna palett?
