Colourpop eyeshadow rewiev

A while ago i bought some products from Colourpop. I bought the phase me out value set and some lip products (read about it here).  The value set consisted of four super shock shadows from their spring collection. The shadows included in the set was One by One, Itty Bitty, Flipper and Going rouge. These are very peachy shades which is perfect for spring and summer! The set was $20 value while the price was $18 . I was super exited to try products from Colourpop for the first time, especially since everybody seems to have and love them.

This is what Colourpop claims: “Super Shock Shadow Our famous long-wearing crème powder formula with a unique bouncy-like texture. It’s super creamy, insanely pigmented, and has one swipe intensity with zero fallout.”

Facetune-2017061336388050This is the base i started out with. I used a stick foundation, bronzer, blush, a highlight and I had also done my brows.  First i applied Going Rouge all over my lid and above the crease to create a base. I applied this with the base shadow brush form Real Techniques (you can find it here). I had to use a lot of the product since the shadow wasn’t as pigmented as it seemed during swatches.   Facetune-201706131196417855

After I applied One by One followed by Flipper. I felt like i needed a lot of product to build up the color to be as intense as i wanted it. I found the shadows to be very creamy but not as pigmented as i would like for them to be. The feel of the product is a very silky and smooth texture and very lightweight.

Finished the look by adding Itty bitty on the lover part of the lid and in the crease with the deluxe crease brush from real techniques (find it here). Facetune-201706139079910Facetune-201706131772430634

The value set is a very nice one to add to your collection, the colors are really nice after some building. Even though these shadows aren’t as pigmented as id wish i would recommend them. I think these shadows can be very nice to add to a collection, especially if you like peach colors. You can find the set hereFacetune-20170613558061700

summer make up tutorial and first impressions.

Earlier this week i created a smokey summery look. I have been very inspired to do one, especially in some peach tones. I got to use some of my new products and i will do a review on them soon 🙂

I started out with a cleansed face and moisturizer. Since i had already applied make up earlier that day, i decided to keep my brows. I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow pomade in blonde. Processed with VSCO with e4 preset

Processed with VSCO with  presetI started with the Urban Decay Optical Illusion complexion primer. I applied it with my fingers. Afterwards i moved on to my foundation, i used the Urban Decay All Nighter foundation in 0.5. I expected a very high coverage and a long lasting foundation. I found the foundation to be more of a full coverage than any other foundation I’ve tried, but i could still  see some of redness shining trough. Another thing i noticed was that without primer the foundation was easily worn off, and it oxidized.   Processed with VSCO with e4 preset

Processed with VSCO with  presetAfter the first layer of foundation i applied some color correction and some contour. I used some Scandinavian brands, the Under Cover correct and contour palette and the makeup mekka contour palette.

Processed with VSCO with e4 presetI applied the medium dark color around my temples, on the upper part of my for head and along my jawline and cheekbones. Then i added a darker contour shade on my nose and on my cheekbones. I also applied green color correction in my cheeks and on the lower part of my forehead. I also applied yellow and pink color correction under my eyes and some purple on my cheeks and other parts of my face where my complexion Processed with VSCO with e4 preset2017-05-21 08.16.36 1.jpgAfter blending the contour i added an other layer of foundation.Processed with VSCO with e4 preset2017-05-21 08.16.34 2.jpgAfter applying the second layer of foundation, i went over with some powder contour from Smashbox.

20170503_201857_006Used the colors from Colourpop´s Phase me out value set. I applied the color Going Rouge all over my lid as a base. I used the One by One shadow on the lower part of the lid, and then to create a “smokey” i used flipper.  The last color i applied along my lash line was Itty Bitty.

For lips i used the Ultra Satin Lip form Colourpop in the shade Echo Park.

Shopping in Oslo 

On saturday i and my boyfriend went to Oslo. We went mainly to do some shopping, and I was a bit disappointed because I didn’t buy that much. 

The first thing I bought were some makeup from Urban Decay. I bought the all nighter foundation and the optical illusion primer. I bought the foundation in the shade 0.5 (foundationprimer). I will do a rewiev on this some time in the future. I also bought the “eau de roma” tonerwater from Lush as well. 

I also wanted to try a setting spray, and I have heard great things about the one from NYX, so I figured I would give it a try. 

I also visited Zara and because it was SO crowded I only bought one dress. It was a blue and white striped dress with straps.  (You can find it here). 

I also bought a blue pair of shorts. I bought the shorts at Monki and you can find similair here

Celebrating May 1st 

1st of May is the workers national day off. This is celebrated in many ways. Me and my dad have a tradition to go on a motorcycle ride around a water called Mjøsa. This is a very popular thing to do, and a lot of people gather and drive together. 

 We met at 11 o’clock, and drove off in a kind of a parade. Hundreds of motorcyclists in a small place often means chaos, but it’s so much fun!

After a while we stopped at a gas station, and the chaos was even bigger! 

Afterwards we drove off, and then stopped at a place called Skreia. There you could find old cars, old motorcycles, old trucks and live music.

Smashbox review

I have tested some smash box-products! i tested the studio ski foundation, their color adjusting primer and the step-by-step contour kit. Read all about it in this post!

Recently i have been testing out some Smashbox products. I have been testing their studio skin foundation, the green photo finish color correcting primer and the smaller contour palette.

i have had the products for a while and thought i´d share my opinions on the products with you.  Before i get into the review, i´ll share what the products are claiming to do.DSC_8628

Since i am an dancer i was able to put the products to the ultimate test during our spring show. I applied my makeup at 11 a.m since the last rehersals started a couple hours later.

The foundation is claiming to be a medium to full coverage, but personally i feel like its more of a medium coverage. The ability to cover imperfections are important to me since i struggle with acne. Though that being said it did not break me out, and it didn’t look oily even after both practice and show. It also stays on a long period of time, but i don’t know wether this is because of the foundation or the primer.

The color correcting primer made it a lot easier to apply the foundation, which applies very smoothly over the primer. I didn’t  feel like the primer color corrected much, at least not as much as i would have expected.

The contour palette was a bit difficult to blend out, but the colors were beautiful. The bronzer and contour shade dint have much of a red tone which i really like. Since I’m very pale the red toned bronzers look a bit muddy on me. After all i really liked the products!

The makeup lasted the whole day trough till i removed around 12 a.m. During the day the makeup became a bit cakey in the areas around my nose, which i expected since i was wearing a lot of products and this area is a bit problematic for me.  But after all i had an good experience with the products and they stayed on until i removed it.

OOTD. MARCH.

Today’s outfit was very simple, a black turtleneck and a simple distressed mom jeans from Levis. I wore a green jacket from G-Star  which I really like, especially because of the belt and the buckle in front. The green color is perfect for the season, and the jacket is thick enough for the Norwegian spring.

March 2.

I woke up to such a beautiful morning, the weather was just perfect. The sun was shining and it was relatively warm for a morning in march. I woke up around 10 and went out for a walk with my boyfriends dog, what a funny dog. Her name is Topsy and she’s a bit strange, always doing stupid things and making weird noises. I felt so inspired! 

I have been feeling a bit restless lately, and wanted to acutely do and feel like i had achieved something today, so we went on a cx-ski trip. The weather was just perfect, so we ended up going on a trip on the ice at the fjord. We didn’t go for a long trip, but it was long enough for an “out of shape dog”.

After the trip my boyfriend made smoothie, which we enjoyed out in the sun. It was a perfect finish to an beautiful day.
