Parts of the IsaDora Pool Glow collection

The summer is here and so is IsaDora’s summer collection Pool Glow! The collection is inspired by relaxing summer evenings at the pool and the products have a bronzed tone to them.

Sommaren är här och det är också IsaDora’s sommarkollektion Pool Glow! Kollektionen är inspirerad av avkopplande sommarkvällar vid poolen och produkterna går i solbruna toner.

The Nude Cushion Foundation Bronzer and the Face Sculptor Strobing palette were also part of IsaDora’s summer collection last year. I really like these products! The Cushion Foundation Bronzer has a nice golden brown tone to it and works great to get a sun-kissed look. I like how easy it is to apply – even though I prefer using it with a brush rather than the applicator it comes with. It’s a bit too dark for my fair skin right now but when I get a tan it’ll look perfect! The Face Sculptor Strobing palette is also a really nice product. It gives a nice shimmer in three different shades which all match a bronzed summer look.

Både Nude Cushion Foundation Bronzer och Face Sculptor Strobing-paletten var med i IsaDoras sommarkollektion förra året. Jag gillar verkligen de här produkterna! Nude Cushion Foundation Bronzer har en fin gyllenbrun ton och den funkar riktigt bra för att få en solkysst look. Jag gillar att den är enkel att applicera – även då jag föredrar att använda en borste istället för applikatorn som följer med. Den är lite för mörk för min ljusa hy just nu men när jag har fått lite solbränna så kommer den passa perfekt! Face Sculptor Strobing-paletten är också en riktigt fin produkt. Den ger ett fint skimmer i tre olika nyanser som alla passar en bronzig sommarlook.

Manicure using IsaDora 556 Rose Gold and 557 Gold Glow

Here I did a manicure using the two nail polishes in IsaDora’s summer collection – 556 Rose Gold and 557 Gold Glow. I think these polishes match the rest of the collection perfectly. Rose Gold is, as the name suggest, a rose gold polish with a metallic finish. I applied two coats for full coverage and even though the polish got a little bit streaky, I really like it! Gold Glow has a bronzed, super shimmery finish and matches Rose Gold very well.

Här gjorde jag en manikyr med de två nagellacken från IsaDoras sommarkollektion – 556 Rose Gold och 557 Gold Glow. Jag tycker att de här lacken matchar resten av kollektionen perfekt. Rose Gold har, som namnet antyder, en nyans som liknar roséguld och finishen är metallic. Jag applicerade två lager för att få lacket heltäckande och även då lacket blev lite randigt så gillar jag det verkligen! Gold Glow har en bronzig nyans och är väldigt skimrigt. Det matchar fint ihop med Rose Gold.

What really caught my interest in this collection was IsaDora’s new tinted lip oils. I’ve been a fan of their transparent lip oil ever since it launched just because it’s super moisturizing and feels really nice on the lips. I’m excited that they’re now available in tinted versions! Apart from the three shades shown in the picture above, there is also a dark pink shade called 71 Pink Berry.  The lip oils give a slight tint to the lips, almost like a tinted lip balm, but the shine is amazing! They have nourishing ingredients and smell lovely of vanilla, lime and rosemary.

Vad som verkligen fångade mitt intresse i den här kollektionen var IsaDoras nya färgade läppoljor. Jag har varit ett fan av deras genomskinliga läppolja ända sedan den släpptes eftersom den är väldigt mjukgörande och skön att använda. Nu finns den alltså också i färgade nyanser! Utöver de tre på bilden ovan så finns den också i en mörkrosa nyans som heter 71 Pink Berry. Läppoljorna ger en svag färg, ungefär som ett färgat läppbalsam, men en otrolig glans! De har fuktighetsgivande och vårdande ingredienser och doftar riktigt gott av vanilj, lime och rosmarin.

IsaDora’s Bronzing shimmer oil

This bronzing shimmer oil was also part of IsaDora’s summer collection last year. It’s a moisturizing oil which gives a glowing shimmer on your body. It feels light, absorbs quickly and has nourishing ingredients such as jojoba oil, olive oil and vitamin C. IsaDora suggests to use it as an after sun oil to rehydrate both the body and the hair.

Den här skimmeroljan var också med i IsaDoras förra sommarkollektion. Det är en mjukgörande olja som ger ett fint skimmer på kroppen. Den känns väldigt lätt, absorberas snabbt och har vårdande ingredienser så som jojobaolja, olivolja och vitamin C. IsaDora föreslår att använda den som en ”after sun” -olja för att återfukta både kroppen och håret.

IsaDora Black & White | the monochrome look

The IsaDora Black & White collection was released already in October 2016 but it’s not until now that I’ve given the products a good try – and I really like them! The collection contains a mix of both new and existing make-up products and in this blog post I’ll show you the news.

The IsaDora Black & White collection

The monochrome look is very trendy at the moment and IsaDora has created this collection with inspiration from the simplicity in black and white. IsaDora states that the monochrome look suits everyone and it can be everything from minimalistic and rock’n’roll to feminine and romantic.

The IsaDora Eye Color Wonder Bar in 02 Smoky Eyes

My favorite product in the collection is the IsaDora Eye Color Wonder Bar in 02 Smoky Eyes. It’s beautiful! This eyeshadow palette contains 12 different shades with a mix of matte, shimmery and frosted eyeshadows. I think the palette is great for creating a smoky look and I love that it contains both darker and lighter shades so that you can easily vary the looks. The eyeshadows are quite pigmented, lasts all day and I’ve only noticed some fallout from the glittery shades. The palette also comes with a double ended eyeshadow applicator – one side is a brush and the other is a smudger. The gorgeous glitter shades in this palette saved my New Year’s look and I’m sure I’ll get a lot of wear out of this palette!

If you’d like to buy this lovely eyeshadow palette you can find it on Feelunique.com or Lyko.se.

The IsaDora Kohl Kajal in 00 White and 01 Black

The collection comes with two new kohl kajals – one white and one black. Personally I almost never wear kajal or eyeliner but I’ve seen some really cool graphic looks where black and white kajals are used in combination. IsaDora states that the kajals have a soft texture, they are easy to apply and lasts for several hours without any mess. The cone shaped tip is supposed to make application super simple and the tip remains pointed without any need for sharpening the kajal. The product can be used both on the upper and lower lash line, on the waterline or for a smoky eye look. The active ingredients in the kajals are emollients which are hydrating and vitamin C and E which are antioxidants, nourishing, protects the skin from free radicals and prevents early aging of the skin.

You can find the IsaDora Kohl Kajals on the following web shops:

The IsaDora Matt Fixing Powder

Next is the IsaDora Matt Fixing Powder which I had really high hopes for! The powder is transparent and is claimed to help your make-up stay on for longer. The powder also has oil absorbing ingredients which results in a matte finish, it has a blurring effect which helps covering uneven skin and it contains hyaluronic acid which hydrates the skin. What made me most interested in this powder is the fact that it is both matte and hydrating. Usually when I use matte powders my skin feels very dry after a while, but I haven’t had that problem with this powder. The finish is matte but at the same time it’s not that matte that the skin looks lifeless. However, I have quite oily skin and this powder doesn’t stay on all day for me, I need at least one touch up during the day. On the other hand, that’s the case with most powders and all in all, I think the IsaDora Matt Fixing Powder lived up to my high expectations!

The active ingredients in this powder are:

  • Hyaluronic acid – hydrating
  • Silica – oil absorbing
  • Vitamin C and E – hydrating, nourishing, protect the skin from free radicals and early aging
  • Spherical micro pearls – soft focus effect, blurs uneven skin

If you’d like to buy the IsaDora Matt Fixing Powder you can find it on Lyko.seNordicfeel.se & Feelunique.com.

The IsaDora Twist-up Matt Lips in 71 Blackout

Lastly we have the IsaDora Twist-Up Matt Lips in 71 Blackout. This is a super dark red/purple matte lipstick which I, to be honest, don’t feel very comfortable in. However, for someone a bit bolder I think this lipstick would look amazing and there is nothing wrong with the formula. The lipstick is easy to apply, feels soft and comfortable on the lips even though it’s matte, and it has a good staying power.

If you’d like to buy the IsaDora Twist-Up Matt Lips you can find many different shades on these web shops:

This shimmery golden polish is called 542 Vintage Gold. It has a bit of a holographic effect to it since it shifts in pink tones in some lights. It is really beautiful and covers well in two coats.

Here I used the dark red polish 543 baroque Blood as a base color and topped it with 879 Diamond Rocks, a transparent polish with both small and big silver and holographic glitter pieces. I love this combo! The red polish covers well in two coats and it’s a perfect shade for the holidays.

There are also some lip products in the collection. The first picture shows the IsaDora Sculpting Lipliner in the shade 60 Berry Kiss which goes nicely with the Lip Desire Sculpting Lipstick in the shade 72 Purple Plum in the second picture. I love all IsaDora’s Sculpting lipliners and lipsticks since they last so well on the lips! The lipliner is waterproof and makes the color last for a really long time while the lipstick is very creamy, which makes it very comfortable to wear. A perfect combo! The IsaDora Sculpting Lipliner and the Lip Desire Sculpting Lipstick can be bought at Feelunique.com, Nordicfeel.se, Lyko.se and Nelly.com.

Hope you like this collection as much as I do! For more of my nail art, check out my Instagram account @nailsbyic or my YouTube channel Nails by IC .
