Woohoo! New lipsticks for Fanneke! :-D She's getting addicted to lippies! :-D

Awhile ago I was approached by a lovely MUAer who wanted to swap for my Illamasqua Rich Foundation and since I saw that she offered anything from the line IsaDora which I had never heard of, I thought maybe I should give it a try, God am I glad that I did...!

I did a careful and complete research, from foundation to eyeshadow (although I'm not really an eyeshadow user, but well, you get the picture, I just wanted to see what they have) and changed my choices several times and the poor lady had to go to a bigger drugstore which had more colour selections especially for me and I felt so guilty... -_-

For those of you who don't know IsaDora yet, it's a Sweden-based cosmetic company which offers a wide range of products at a decent price. I learnt it's popular in Sweden (ok, check out the Youtube videos and most of the ladies who use IsaDora products are from Sweden).

They retail for 105 SEK (equivalent to €10,84 ) each in Sweden.

The packaging is classic, a safe gamble for the company. :-P I wish it came with a round tube instead of a square one, but it's no big deal. I'm being too demanding. I like to hear that "Klick!" when I close it. :-) (By the way, the new Catrice Absolute Moisture lipsticks have that sound too! I'm going to buy a few...! ^_^)

The colours I have now are #33 Tender Rose and #142 Poppy Coral. They of course look different on the official swatches but in real life very similar, only #142 is slight redder and #33 looks actually more coral to me.

#33 Tender Rose

#142 Poppy Coral

I used lipbalm (Labello Med Protection) prior applying these lipsticks, as always. :-)

Upon opening the lid, I sense a strong coconut smell, I'm not very fond of coconut so I was a bit sad that they smell like that. :-(

The texture on the other hand is really nice, it glides on like butter and doesn't settle into the fine lines of my lips. One stroke covers perfectly all uneven tones on your lips and it's indeed moisturizing, that being said, it doesn't dry your lips, and I don't feel the need of touch-up either. It feels very light and soft as if I didn't apply lipstick at all. And the colours are true to the core on my lips. I won't hesitate to recommend them to everyone and I'm eager to try other colours...! :-)
