For Glossy Lips, Juicy Shaker by Lancôme

A while back I was at a news evening with L’oréalLuxe and Lancôme presented their latest: Juicy Shakers! These glossy shakers were a brainchild of the fab Lisa Eldridge!
Några veckor sen var jag på en nyhetskväll med L’oréalLuxe och Lancôme presenterade nya Juicy Shakers! De här är glossy shakers gjort av Lisa Eldridge!

The concept is simple: Shake, Twist, & Dab! This lipgloss has a bi-phased formula that pairs lip oils with pigments. The oils include sweet almond oil, omega 3 & Cranberry oil.
Konceptet är enkel: Shake, Twist & Dab! Läppglansen har en bi-formula med oljor och pigmenter. Oljorna inkluderar söt mandelolja, omega 3 & tranbär olja.

The applicator is a cushion applicator so super soft and applies the gloss very softly. The shape is simple and gives the exact amount needed for the lops!
Applikatorn är en chushion applikator som är mjuk och applicerar produkten fint. Storleken är enkel och ger exakt mängd på läpparna!

There are 13 shades and one limited edition in Mint to Be (I must have this one!) The one that I have is Berry in Love.
Det finns 13 färger och 1 limited edition Mint to Be (som jag måste ha!) Den som jag visar här är Berry in Love.

Say Aloha to the New Hoola Family from Benefit! (And some extras… ;))

Benefit has released a number of new products including a Hoola Family and even a few new products in the POREfessional family.

Dew the Hoola

dewthehoola
This liquid bronzer was only available in mini format in the Hoola kit and now is in fullsize!

Hoola Brush

hoola-brush-hero

A soft synthetic fiber brush that has greentinted hairs (I’m guessing because bamboo is green?) and the handle is golden bamboo. Its a tapered fluffy brush that I can imagine applies bronzers well.

Hoola Zero Tanlines

Benefit Hoola Zero Tanlines
This is an instant self-tanner that does not smell of self-tanner and gives a beautiful bronzey color.

Benefit Hoola Zero Tanlines

I like that the packaging is very attractive AND that it includes an application sponge IN the cap!

POREfessional Matte Rescue Gel (310 SEK)

Benefit porefessional matte rescue
This is the latest in the POREfessinal family that completes for those of us who are more oily in skintype. I have had issues using original POREfessional since it usually crumbled underneath my bases. I have used this product for around a week now and I’m impressed with its longevity.

POREfessional Instant Wipe out Masks ( /8 masks)

Benefit porefessional wipeout mask

I was super interested in this product and got to try out 2 masks before it was released! It’s basically a nicer porestrip that doesn’t dry on the skin which means you don’t have to rip off your living (and dead) skincells off your face but rather cleanse then scrub instead!

Cheekathon Blush Palette (595 SEK)

Benefit Cheekathon

5 Fullsize blushes in an easy palette. What to say except awesome price for great products! You get Rockateur, Dallas, Hoola, Coralista and the only blush we can’t get here in Sweden: Dandelion!

Benefit Cheekathon

There is a large mirror AND also a little brush that comes with the set! It’s limited edition so get it while it’s still in stock!

Is there anything from Benefit you’re looking forward to trying?

My Konjac Sponge Company Pink Heart Face Sponge

samples for consideration

polhem konjac sponge

I actually haven’t heard of the konjac sponge company until the little event with Polhem a week or so ago. In my goodie bag was their Pink Heart Face Sponge that I got the opportunity to try.

polhem konjac sponge
I absolutely love konjac sponges and have used my fair share of them. If you don’t know much I got a few little tidbits to share about these friendly facial cleanser sponges.

The konjac sponge is a porous root veggie that is extremely popular in Asia and have gained popularity around the world. As it is a root veggie, I suggest keeping them maximum a month. They are super gentle but do exfoliate (also depending on what type of konjac sponge). Due to the exfoliation they contribute to radiance but I can say that if you’re looking for that extra glow, this sponge will disappoint!

In addition, I do know there are sponges that contain charcoal said to be good for acne but I personally don’t think that this is the solution to such skin problems. They are ideal on all skin types but work well on sensitive, dry and even rosacea affected skins. You can take your makeup off with this product just by water and any cleanser.

polhem konjac sponge
So. The Pink Heart sponge from Konjac Sponge Company is a french pink clay sponge that is awesome for reviving tired skin (Pink clay is known for caring for irritated skin). According to the company the sponge itself is 100% pure konjac from volcanic plains of UNESCO protected jeju Island which is located in South Korea. The sponge is 100% biodegradable & fully sustainable.

I did not notice much of a difference the first week of use, but the more I used it, the easier it was to take off my makeup but also get rid of the flakey skin I’ve been battling around my nose & nose piercing.

Do you use Konjac Sponges? If so which ones have you tried?

Kat Von D Studded Lipstick Vault Swatches

Jag hade inte tid att visa alla swatches av min Kat Von D Studded Vault som jag köpte ett tag sen. Detta är perfekt tajming då vi kommer släppa KVD här i Sverige den 16e.

A Review of NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint

NARS velvet matte skin tint
This is a new product from NARS and it is an oil-free skin tint that according to NARS gives a soft-matte finish to the skin. It has SPF 30 & PA+++ which seems perfect for the upcoming spring-summer months. The product is also said to have Vitamins C & E and has transparent blurring powders to blur imperfections and smooth the look of pores and finelines.
Detta är en ny produkt från NARS och det är en oljefri hud tint att enligt NARS ger en mjuk – matt finish på huden. Det har SPF 30 och PA +++ som verkar perfekt för den kommande våren – sommaren. Produkten sägs att ha Vitamin C & E och har transparenta blurring puder att sudda brister och jämna utseendet på porerna och fina linjer.

NARS velvet matte skin tint
I have normal to combined skin at the moment and I can say that this product…is horrible. I tried using it on it’s own, together with a primer, and even tried applying a powder over which actually made things worse.
Jag har normal till kombinerad hud just nu och jag kan säga att denna produkt … är fruktansvärd. Jag försökte använda det ensam, tillsammans med en primer, och även försökt applicera ett puder över som faktiskt gjort saken värre

NARS velvet matte skin tint
The color I got is Finland
Färgen jag har är Finland.

(Right side with tint, left side clean face)

I felt that my face got cakey and dry after just 1-2 hours of wear which is strange for a product that is meant to mattify and smooth lines in the face…
Jag kände att mitt ansikte fick tjockt applicering och kändes torr efter bara 1-2 timmar av användning…som är konstigt för en produkt som är avsedd att matta ner och mjuka linjer i ansiktet.

NARS velvet matte skin tint
This is how the coverage looked after 1½ hours of wear.
Detta är hur det ser ut efter 1½ timmar.
