This week Isadora is launching this beautiful eyeshadow pallete called Eye Color Wonder Bar. It has 12 different shades, four matte (the first one and the three to the right) and eight shimmers. I’ve used it almost every day for about a month now and I must say I love it! It has a perfect mix of matte and shimmery nude shades, perfect for an everyday look but also at night. The shadows are pigmented and I haven’t noticed any creasing (which is amazing since eyeshadows tend to crease on me all the time). It comes with a double-ended brush (sponge on one side), I haven’t used it that much but I think it’s allright. Hope you’ll like this one as much as I do!
Disclaimer: This review is based on my honest opinion. I have not been asked to do it and I am not getting paid for it. I received the product as a PR sample.
In week 39 IsaDora will launch some new gel nail lacquers. These polishes don’t need a lamp to cure, just sunlight or light from a normal lamp. They get the gel-like finish when applying the gel nail lacquer top coat. I think IsaDora did a great job choosing colors for this collection. It has a nice mix of lighter and darker polishes, seven cremes and one shimmer. They have lovely formulas and are super easy to apply and get even. In my swatches I haven’t used any top coat, just so that you can get a better sense of the finishes of the polishes.
To start off with we have this dark red polish called Dark Temptation. It is opaque in two coats and is a must have for winter! Here I paired it with Berry Baroque and made a chevron design.
Another must have for winter is this one called Purple Passion. It’s a very dark purple shade that is opaque in two coats. Together with the nail polishes, IsaDora is selling matching bracelet. I love the idea!
Next is one of my absolute favorites from the collection, Berry Baroque. This one will look amazing for autumn! It’s a burgundy shade, somewhere between a dark pink and a red. Two coats are enough for full coverage.
I was so happy to find this grey polish called Turtledove in the collection! It’s the first one I’ve seen from IsaDora without shimmer. I think it’s a perfect grey shade and it covers well in two coats. Here I did a French manicure using Turtledove and Dark Temptation.
This is Red Spell, a really nice red polish. Nothing special, but a shade that everyone needs in their nail polish stash. Two coats give full coverage.
I was actually surprised to find this polish called Lovely Lilac in the collection. For me, this is more of a spring and summer shade. However, it’s a very nice light lavender polish which is opaque in two coats. Here I paired it with Purple Passion.
I’m usually not a big fan of orange polish but this one called Hot Chili is amazing! It has golden shimmer in it and I think it would look even better on someone with a darker skin tone than mine. The only downside is that it needs three coats to be somewhat opaque. Even after three coats it was a little sheer.
Last but not least is this interesting shade called Liquorice. I can’t really put my finger on which color it is. It is some kind of mix between a dark grey, black and a dark blue. The finish of this polish is not as shiny as the others. It is not completely matte either but somewhere in between. In this mani I paired Liquorice with Turtledove on my accent nail.The stamping plate I used is from www.bornprettystore.com.
Hope you like this collection as much as I do! It will be in stores in week 39 and the polishes cost 89 kr each.
IsaDora recently launched their 2015 autumn make-up collection called Rock & Romance. There are three polishes in the collection, one mossy green with lots of shimmer, one burgundy shade and one dark purple polish. To be honest, I wasn’t overly excited when I first got these polishes. It was mid June back then and summer hadn’t even started. However I can definitely see myself wearing these when the weather is cooling.
My favorite of the three is 518 Bohemian Rose. The formula is great, two coats are enough for full coverage. It’s a creme polish and super easy to apply. Below I used 518 Bohemian Rose as a base and stamped 519 Dark Romance on top. I love the velvet effect it created!
517 Urban Green surprised me as I swatched it! I don’t tend to use green polishes very much, but I think this one will look really nice for autumn and winter. It’s a gorgeous dark green/gray shade packed with shimmer. I applied two coats for full coverage.
The last polish in this collection is 519 Dark Romance. It’s a dark purple creme polish which is opaque in two coats. Below I paired it with 518 Bohemian Rose. These two polishes go really well together!
To sum it up, IsaDora’s Rock & Romance collection contains three beautiful polishes with great formulas. I’ll probably wear 518 Bohemian Rose the most since it’s the lightest polish of the three and I find it easiest to wear. However, as we go into the darker seasons I’ll probably wear Dark Romance and Urban Green as much.
You can find the collection in stores now and the polishes cost 79 kr each.
