I'm pretty sure I'm very behind on this. but you know what?
I don't care!
For you who don't know:
Isadora is a Swedish makeup brand that are fragrance free, cruelty free, clinically tested and kind of affordable. I mean, there is cheaper brands, and there are more expensive brands. In Sweden Isadora is classified as a "drug store" brand that you can find in most bigger stores.
I bought this one at H&M For example!
If you follow my Instagram you might have seen when I shared this the first time, and that I said that I grabbed it because of the highlighter, because it was so similar to Too Faced Champagne truffle that I love to use as a highlighter. I even shared a comparison between the colors and even threw in Sugarpills Wink in the mix.
And even though Champagne truffle is a little more pink, this is not far off, and I really like how it looks on my face.
and I've used it several times on my blog (here & here), and on my Instagram.
Even though I bought this for the highlighter I do really like the blushes The two matte ones are the colors I am drawn too when I do my makeup. and sometimes I do spice it up by putting the pearl ones on top of the mate blushes. That way you get the more natural glow from within, than just *BAM* SPARKLES! if you know what I mean?
the compact is quite big, for me at least, since it's way bigger than the palm of my hand, but then again; I have baby hands. but considering you get 4 blushes and 1 highlighter I'm not complaining. and it's a nice travel compact. I do however wish that they would've put in a contouring powder. but since this palette is all about draping, and not contouring I do understand why they haven't.
Draping, what is that?
Well. it's kinda contouring, but at the same time not. the meaning here is that you will take the darkest blush and "drape" it underneath your cheekbones from the apples up to your sears ans swoop it up to the temples, if I've understood it right, And then you take the lighter blush and drape in onto your cheeks in the same manner. and then you apply your highlighter.
And judging from the picture on the back of the compact (and to the right of this text) it will give that classic 80's look. which can look cool to some looks. I might have to try this one day tbh..
As you can see, the colors are beautiful, and they're really smooth, and pigmented! a little goes a long way with these in my opinion. that's why I like to apply blush with a small kabuki brush, because it blends it out beautifully as you apply it.
I know they've come out with a few new colors on the wheels, But I have only seen pictures of them so far, so I don't know if I will be getting those too. But so far I'm really happy with this.
Now, for pricing? like I said, I bought mine at H&M and I honestly just grabbed it and went to the register and don't even remember what I paid (since I also had some other things) but from a little googling irt seems that the price of these is around 229 sek depending on where you buy it.
And I also noticed that you can buy these from Walgreens if you live in America. But from what I can understand you can only order them online for now. And they cost $25 there.
