IsaDora Bella Vita Spring 2013 LE

IsaDora prepared new collection for spring. Is full of pastel colors, even for eyes. They say it’s inspired by Mediterran & ice cream and that you need to think on Audrey Hepburn in the 50s with a contemporary twist when you look at this LE. Even thou I love Jelly Kiss lipsticks ( 2 new colors in this LE) I think the star of this LE is eyeshadow palette in pastel colors *-*

NOTD: Pearly Frost

Season of gifts started \o/ On 6th December we in Slovenia celebrate “Miklavลพ” or St.Nicholas day. That’s a man who brings gifts to good kids and to bad one’s “parkelj” brings sticks =) Parkelj is kind of devil creature. Most common gift by Miklavลพ are fruits, specially mandarins,oranges and apples.. nowadays you get some more pricey gift too =)

One of the things I got was IsaDora gift box with nail polish and bracelet. In shop they have 3 different boxes. One have polish 651 Silver Sparkles + grey IsaDora bracelet, other polish 728 Black Galaxy + black IsaDora bracelet. I have polish 103 Pearly Frost + White IsaDora bracelet.

Nail polish is white with pearl finnish. I used 2 coats but 1 coat works fine also..I’m just more used to have 2 coats =)

This polish was perfect for this week when we got snow & it looked like if I have snow on my nails too ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll wear it more in january, right now I’m more into glitters and reds.

While I took photos of NOTD this cute dog walked into park behind the building where I live *-* I love to take photos of pets.. have million of our cat xD

Polar nights

We never have polar nights but I do have nail polish with that name. Is from IsaDora. Have blue base color, lot’s of small silver glitters and some silver glitter hexagons. Looks impressive in bottle but somehow this hexagons don’t want to go from brush to my nails :/ I put 2 coats of polish, maybe in 3rd I would get more of them ๐Ÿ™‚

I didn’t expect that in second coat blue will be so dark but I like it that way.

I wanted this polish since I first saw sneak-peek from IsaDora *-* Thought I don’t have any similar polish but found today Essence 78 Blue Addicted. It’s the same idea, jelly polish with two different shapes of glitters. Difference is that Essence polish is more sheer, blue jelly have green&black undertone, small glitters are in blue and hexagons are in green and blue.
I could say that I prefer Polar nights cuz I never wore Blue Addicted ๐Ÿ™‚ I guess green hexagons bother me & that’s way I don’t put it on my nails.

IsaDora Northern lights, winter 2012

IsaDora will have collection inspired by the Nordic winter wonderlands and its beautiful nature *-* I love all that! Specially now that alpine skiing, cross-country, biathlon and ski jumping season is coming \o/ And cuz I discovered my love to Swedish crime books and recently also to all Nordic/Scandinavian crime books ๐Ÿ™‚

Isadora describes how they got inspired:
โ€ข White (Snow)
โ€ข Silver (Stars)
โ€ข Dark blue (Night sky)
โ€ข Purple (Northern lights)
โ€ข Golden browns (Lynx)
In addition a touch of red โ€“ the core color of the holiday season!

As always their new collection consist of some new and some old products. Old are Perfect Moisture Lipstick in 164 Marshmallow, Perfect Matt Lipstick in 03 Red Carpet , Glitter Eyeliner in 30 Gold, Glitter Eyeliner in 31 Silver, Perfect Liner in 36 Ruby Red, Moisturizing Lipgloss in 19 Marshmallow and Big Bold Mascara in 10 Black

Now let’s go to the new things! Some bloggers already made some swatches.. I’ll put link to them.

1. ISADORA MOISTURIZING LIPGLOSS 40 PURPLE DE LUXE

I fell in love when I saw this in promo foto!! It’s nice light purple with some glitters for de luxe =) I thought it will be more pigmented.. you can see on Bluebell81 photos that is sheer :/

2. ISADORA CREAM MOUSSE EYE SHADOW in 32 STARDUST

Cream mousse eye shadow is totally new product by IsaDora. First 6 of them came out in october. For this collection they added silver Stardust. I never tried any of cream mousse eyeshadows and don’t really know if I want to.. I prefer eyeshadows in palettes, they look nicer to me ๐Ÿ™‚ Cream mousse’s are great for girls who don’t have much time to play with brushes and are handy for trips cuz they don’t take a lot of space.
You can see photos of Stardust on Frida Skoglund blog.

3. ISADORA EYESHADOW QUARTET in 67 NORTHERN LIGHTS and 68 LYNX

Two new super nice palettes *-* Lately I like their LE palettes =) On promo photo I prefer Northern Lights palette but on swatches Lynx is my favourite. Don’t like that white in Northern lights, it should be less pigmented. You can see swatches of both on PurityBeauty blog, Skimmerskuggan blog, Frokenrosa blog and on IsaDora blog

4. ISADORA NAIL POLISHES in

749 North Star ( silver glitter )
750 Polar Nights ( blue jelly with different size of silver & blue glitters )
-751 Arctic treasure ( gold glitter )

My favourite is Polar nights \o/ I thinks is everyone’s favourite from this 3 cuz other 2 are too much regular.. you can find billion of polishes like this. Polar nights is original ( I think so.. do u know about any dupe shade? ).
Check really good post about all 3 polishes on Makeupedia.se

And for the end… when I wrote the title of this post I remembered on Mel C song Northern Star. It’s not northern lights as this collection but goes well with the theme ๐Ÿ™‚

New lipsticks for fall

As I mentioned in some past post I’m into dark red nail polishes… so I looked if I have some matching lipstick. I had only 1 dark red ๐Ÿ˜ฎ and is not better with red lipsticks either. I guess I prefer other colors on my lips xD

To put some new colors into my collection I went to DM store and bought 2 S-He Stylezone lipsticks. If you don’t know how new color will look on you is better to start with cheap versions and then move to other brands ๐Ÿ™‚

Sadly S-He Stylezone don’t have names just numbers… so here they are

1. S-He Stylezone lipstick in 135

This one screams fall to me! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s really awesome shade in tube. I like it on my lips but would like if it would be more “compact”, not so sheer, maybe matte or more pigmented..then it would be perfect! Will try to find more pigmented dupe but till then this is my new favourite lipstick for fall \o/

2. S-He Stylezone lipstick in 147

This one is dark red. I mainly bought it cuz I wanted to see if its dupe of IsaDora 155 Zinfandel that I own. IsaDora is more matte and thick while S-He is more thin ( if I say it in nail polish vocabulary jajaj ) They are not dupes. In bottle IsaDora is a shade darker, on hand is a big difference but on lips difference is only in different finnish and duration.

Hand photo: On left is S-He Stylezone & on right is Isadora

Lips photo: On uper lip is IsaDora and on lower is S-He Stylezone.

This shade is to dark for me, at least for daily wear. So I apply it, then wipe with hanky and apply Labello Fruity Shine over it. In that way I get shade fit for me.

IsaDora eyeshadow palette 64 Paradox

Last month I won another #wonderfulwednesday competition on Isadora twitter. I didn’t even know I can compete again ( after u win once, you can’t for another 3 months) so it was surprise when I saw that I won xD I got 5 things but today I’ll show you only eyeshadow palette.

Yeea eyeshadow top did broke lil bit but I put tape over and is all ok ๐Ÿ™‚ Some girls would send it back but I don’t have time to mess around with this things.

Soo, I got:
1. IsaDora Mild Make-up remover that is oil-free and refreshing… really is refreshing! It’s of good quality and removes make-up really fast. If you have or ever tried “Lโ€™oreal Gentle Waterproof Eye and Lip Make up Remover” .. it works the same but you don’t need to shake it and is refreshing.
2. Small sample of IsaDora Light Touch Natural Radiant Make-up SPF-15 in 52 Sand Didn’t try it yet on my face but did put it on my hand and is to dark for me. I also have small sample of 50 Nude and that one is more in my colour.
3. IsaDora WigWham Heavy Lashes Mascara in 01 Black magic
4. IsaDora Dynamic Lash Growth Mascara in 01 Black It says that you get visibly longer lashes after 30 days. I started to use it on 1.st October and will do post about it in november. So far I like it ๐Ÿ™‚

5. IsaDora EyeShadow Quartet Smoke&Shimmer in 64 Paradox

It’s the first time I tried their eyeshadow palette and I’m impressed. I never bought any cuz I thought they have to boring colors to give more than 20โ‚ฌ for it. This one I actually liked even be four I got it, specially light blue shadow. All shadows have shimmer, 2 also glitters and they all apply very smooth. Brown smoky shadow blends fast and good. Duration is also long ( around 8h on me) and glitters don’t fall all over your face.

– first is light grey shimmer eyeshadow for highlighting
– next is light blue eyeshadow with blue-silver glitters
– black eyeshadow with bigger silver glitters
– dark brown with blue/pink shimmer

In videos below you can see how IsaDora make-up artist Stephan Ulvund ร˜ien used this palette.

NOTD: Fall leaves glitter

Today I’ll show you my yesterday and today NOTD ๐Ÿ™‚ I made it after I saw all the leaves on the floor in the park behind the building where I live. Sadly I don’t have a photo of it cuz it started to rain and is all wet and ugly :/ But yesterday in the morning there was mix of red,yellow and brown.
So I put 2 coats of brown polish on my nails and over it I put 2 thin coats of glitter polish. I didn’t have time to actually paint leaves on, plus I also don’t have brushes for that.. need to buy somewhere at least one. I came into mode when just polishing isn’t enough, I want to draw on my nails too.

This is what I used and how my nails look:

1. IsaDora 400 Base coat
2. Catrice CO3 Wood you follow me ( Hidden world LE)
3. OPI Pros & Bronze ( Serena Williams LE)
4. Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Some new IsaDora things

First I’ll show you what is new from IsaDora I have and then what new they’ll have ๐Ÿ™‚

In June I run out of my base coat so I went to the shop to buy one. Didn’t know which one to buy, so when one of shop assistants asked me if I need help, I for change said that I do ๐Ÿ™‚ She recommended me IsaDora Base Coat. As fan of IsaDora I was happy she said that xD

1. ISADORA 400 Base Coat from their Wonder Care Nail Spa line

It’s my first white/pearl base coat. Is like that only in bottle. Have hypo-allergenic formula and on side is written that is DOUBLE BASE COAT. IsaDora says that evens out the nail & makes a perfect base for nail polish. Also strengthens and prevents discolouring of the nail.
From my experienc I can say that it really does evens out the nail and prevents discolouring. For telling you if it strengthens your nails I’m not perfect person cuz I have naturally harder nails, so they are the same as always.
What I totally like about this base coat is that it dry fast \o/ It dry in the same finnish as are your nails, it’s not shiny.
In bottle is 6ml of base coat. I pay around 12โ‚ฌ.. it’s too much for so little. I think they should do bigger bottle for base coat & top coat cuz that’s what you really need a lot.

2. IsaDora Perfect Lipliner in 80 Transparent Lip Fix

This transparent lipliner is from their new LE Paradox. For me is a must-buy product.. and so far only that I bought from Paradox LE ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t decide which Matte lipstick to buy :s

As name says it’s transparent, so it wouldn’t have sence to make swatches ๐Ÿ™‚ You can’t see it on lips but you can feel it. It fits to every shade. That’s awesome cuz every lipstick don’t have matching lipliner & we have problems to find right one. Applys like butter and I had a feeling like it moisturizer my lips. It’s the best thing that I ever bought.. now I finally feel free to wear any color of lipstick.
In Paradox LE is also red lipliner that I wanted to buy long ago, but now that I have this one I don’t need red one.

And now whats new by IsaDora. In september/october they’ll put on market new collection of nail polishes JEWELS OF THE ORIENT 12 new shades for fall and winter \o/

Colors:
#637 Night Flight
#720 Beetle Green
#733 Paradise Green
#740 Dynasty
#741 Black Amethyst
#742 Sultan Palace
#743 Orient Express
#744 Ancient Ruby
#745 Persian Princess
#746 Silk Road
#747 Oasis
#748 Peacock

From promo photo I like Sultan Palace, Orient Express,Oasis and Ancient Ruby.
There are already some swatches on net from Swedish girls. You can see them here –> Froken Rosa, Dolce Delinda RoxCat

Magnetic Mania

Magnetic Mania is the name of IsaDora magnetic nail polish with number 858, and I guess I also have Magnetic Mania =)) IsaDora Wave pattern magnet ( this one comes on every IsaDora magnetic nail polish) is soooo good that I fall in love in this type of nail polishes. Be4 I tried one by Alessandro and Essence. By Essence had bad magnet and with Alessandro I didn’t knew what to do cuz it was my first magnetic nail polish xD Didn’t try them again cuz I was afraid that this type of nail polishes will ruined my nails. Is not good to have metal on your nail..metal is magnetics, so I thought they put this in nail polishes..but noop, metal is not in this polishes.

There are 10 different shades. I bought 858 Magnetic Mania. It’s purple with silver-purple shimmer..in fact metallic ๐Ÿ™‚

I always use only 1 coat of this nail polish. Cover your nails really well. When you do magnetic pattern it turns into more sheer polish. If you don’t like that you can use 2 coats, but I like it with one.

You can buy separately 3 other types of magnets.. diagonal,horizontal and star. I bought star pattern but so far didn’t figure out how to do nice star pattern :/ Each patter cost 5โ‚ฌ.

Overall this nail polish is super awesome. It last me for all 4 days that I had it on be4 I changed my polish ๐Ÿ™‚ It didn’t chip at all. Only problem I have is, that instead of 2 shades of purple they could put one red or some other color. All brands do magnetics polishes with safe colors… Depend made some with glitters inside but glitters inside safe colors. Maybe there’ll be second version of magnetics with more wild colors. Shatter polishes also started with safe colors and then developed into wild ones, so hope here will be the same story.

IsaDora Paradox collection for fall 2012

Today I saw on IsaDora Facebook promo fotos for their new collection. It’s for fall and will come out in september 2012. Collection is mix of classic and trendy colors, total opposite of their Summer Papagayo collection ๐Ÿ™‚ My favourites are matte lipsticks, one lipliner and nail polishes.

1. Isadora Perfect Matt Lipstick in 01 Bare Bohemian, 03 Red Carpet and 05 Femme Fatale.

“Satin matt lips with a comfortable feel.
Perfect Matt Lipstick has an intense luminous matt finish and is pleasant to wear all day long without drying out your lips or fading. It has a lightweight, yet creamy texture that glides on the lips. Triglycerides guarantee comfort and a satin matt color finish. Perfect Matt Lipstick cares for your lips and includes ingredients with softening, hydrating and protective properties.” .. from IsaDora.com

2. Isadora Moisturizing lipgloss in 21 Red Carpet & 22 Diva Red

3. Isadora Perfect Lipliner in 31 Perfect Red & 80 Transparent Lip Fix

“Transparent Lip Fix is an anti-feathering lip contour pen that fits all lip colors. Prevents fading and feathering and has a plumping effect. Moisturizing, soft and supple.” … from Isadora.com

4. Isadora Wonder Nail in 641 Femme Fatale, 637 Night Flight & 639 Metropolitan.

5. Isadora Eyeshadow Quartet in 63 Brown Patina & 64 Paradox

6. Isadora Twist-Up Metallic Eye Pen in 54 Dark Brown. 56 Steel Grey and 58 Deep Black

7. Isadora Precision Mascara in 10 Deep Black

8. Isadora Glossy Eyeliner in 42 Dark Brown

“Glossy Eyeliner is a liquid eyeliner with a super glossy and glamorous finish. The rich formula guarantees perfect adherence and intense color pay-off. Flexible and pointed applicator makes it possible to draw a super fine or broad line. Quick-drying and waterproof.” … from Isadora.com

9. Isadora Glow Stick-Blusher in 12 Vintage Rose

“Face and body illuminator. A sheer glow/blusher stick for a fresh glowing skin.” …from Isadora.com

In my opinion “must buy” from this collection is Transparent Lip Fix. I hope it really will match to all colors, cuz that way you don’t need to buy million lip liners. I’ll buy it and red lip liner also. I need one and I know Isadora have super good lipliners. I also like Matt Lipstick in Red Carpet and nail polish in Metropolitan.
