MUA 'Undressed' Eyeshadow Palette - Swatches & Review

Here´s my swatches and review of MUA 'Undressed' Eyeshadow Palette!

As I´ve showed you, I had this MUA haul a couple of months ago and I think there will be another one soon! (EDIT: I JUST had another one right now^^) I really love all the products, and especially the eyeshadows and nail varnish:)

But let´s focus on the palette now, shall we :)

One thing I both knew from before and noticed right away (also already stated from hundreds of bbloggers around the world) - is the similarity to the Urban Decay NAKED palette. I can´t see anything but positively on this. Sadly, I do not own the Naked Palette - even though I´ve wanted it since it got out (I´ve just never taken the splurge, don´t ask me why - I´m stupid!) But I´ve tried it and used it on several occasions, and I LOVE IT! I´m not saying the MUA palette is the same, because it´s not. It´s perfect for those who want something similar and can´t (or won´t) afford the real deal. There´s many out there who would be perfectly fine with the MUA palette. As for the makeup junkie I am I´m not perfectly fine with JUST the MUA one. I will be purchasing both NAKED and NAKED 2 veery soon:) (especially now as my littlesister has purchased NAKED 2 without even being as interested in makeup as me, just because she can afford it and gets makeuptips from me - I´m so jealous I could die;) hehe)

ANYWAY this wasn´t really a novelle about NAKED (we´ll do that another time) - it´s all about the love for budget beauty and great products for a lower cost:)

I can´t say much more than that I love it, the formula of the eyeshadows are so smooth and blendable, even the matte ones! (there´s two-three of em) The shades goes really well with each other and you could easily go for a natural 'nude' look to a toned down party look in minutes:)
(I say toned-down because as for me I would add something just a little darker for my partylooks - but that´s just me!)

It costs only £4.00 // $6.50, and I think that´s a really good deal! 

I´ve been using it almost everyday now, it has replaced all of my other eyeshadow obsessions (at least for now), I´m actually scared it´s gonna run empty soon!!

The shadows are named shade 1, shade 2, shade 3 and so on. Easy as that!

I really want to try the other palettes as well, but there isn´t a specific one that has got my attention just like 'Undressed'.. But I have had my eyes on 'Heaven & Earth', 'Dusk til Dawn' and 'Glamour Nights'.

Swatches in another lightning

My (way to simple-in a hurry) everyday look is pretty much like this:

Shade #2 all over lid.
Shade #4 middle lid and towards crease.
Shade #10 Outer lid and crease. 

I find this the perfect budget everyday palette! It´s very affordable, it got all the basic shades you need - the formula is so smooth and it´s highly pigmented. 
Some might feel it´s a little too much shimmer for everyday use, but as I love shimmer it´s perfect for me ;-)

Anyone else loving/hating this palette?

Sugarskullz - This is Halloween, Halloween, Halloween :)


So yesterday wasn´t really Halloween but since it was saturday it was right to celebrate with a drink or two ..or more:) Also I celebrated my birthday so it was purrrrfect :)

My sister and I didn´t get a whole costume, but we decided to be sugarskulls! Maybe not so original, but really fun and easy!! Half n´half - together we were one, hehe ;)

Doesn´t look as perfect when zoomed in tho, but it looked hella´cool in the not-so-bright-lights;)
There are sooooo many nice and incredible sugar skull looks out there, but this is a rather simple one:)
It was aweeeesomeeeee :-)

We were in such a hurry when we decided to go for the sugar skull look, so as soon as I get the time to sit down and really work with it I really wanna do another one that´s a little more perfect;)

OK, so not long ago there was this day called payday, ya know..;) I pretended to be a rich bitch and went on a little shopping spree online;)
Well, to be honest I was just drowning my sorrows because I´m dead broke and that´s awful. I thought I had a little more money than I actually had and I decided to treat myself with some cheap makeup - which I haven´t bought in a while! 
Now I´m even more broke and even more depressed,  well at least now I got some new products to try out while I´m sobbing haha;)

My Self Knitted Jumper - finally finished :)

I´m so proud of myself I´m almost gonna cry :´-D  Feels like I´m ready to take over the world now! I actually managed to make something - knit my own sweater! OK it´s not that hard, but I finished it! And it´s AWESOME!

It´s a lovely khaki-green color and I just love it. Don´t know what more to say. 

I´m super proud and want to wear it all the time..:P As soon as I find another color I like I wanna do another one!!!


So glad to be wearing my Laura Bellariva boots again, I love Fall <3


I´ve used 100% wool yarn Superwash:
It says 3,5 needle, but I´ve been knitting on a 7 needle since I wanted this type of jumper.

OK to be honest I got no idea what words to use when talking about knitting ha ha!!! :)

Will do some research on this and get back to you on the pattern, but seriously it´s so easy!

All the pieces are knitted from the bottom up.

Front Piece:
Cast on 78 stitches
 Start off with knit one, purl one for approx 5 cm.
Continue to knit.
When reached a few cm. before desired length - Find the centre and bind off 16 stitches total (on the middle).
Then knit a round or two before bind off again 1 stitches on each side.
(You can make the neck as you wish, you decide how you want it).
Bind off.

Back Piece:
Cast on 78 stitchess
 Start off with knit one, purl one for approx 5 cm.
Continue to knit until desired length.
(I made my backpiece a little longer that the front piece).
Bind off.

Cast on 44 stitches.
 Start off with knit one, purl one for approx 5 cm.
Knit until you count 15 rounds.
Then increase with 1 stitch on each side of the needle every fourth round.
(You´ll start increasing on the fifth).
Do this until you count 56 stitches in total.
(You´ll be increasing by 12 stitches)
Then knit until desired length.
I didn´t knit many rounds, maybe one or two..
You´ll just have to measure with the backpiece!
Bind off.

Then time for making up!
Put the pieces against each other - right side agains rights side.
Use the yarn that you used knitting with, and a big needle.
Start with the shoulders.
Then sew the arms on, and continue down the sides.
I left a split approx 10 cm on both sides.

OK don´t know if this makes any sense.. but it´s the best i can do right now :)

If you have done anything like this or want to try making your own sweater, please let me know - I would love to see the result! :)

Today I have finally had the energy to be starting painting my room - first layer is done!
Guess I´ll be finished by the end of the week. I also managed to break my bed into two pieces (not because I´m a whale, but I was moving it and because of my extreme strength and blah blah yea u get my drift;)) and that means I will be going to IKEA sooner than first planned - well that´s not really a bummer tho, I want new furnitures!

I got such a lovely idea for my vanity table!

Do you have any interior tips for vanity tables/makeup organizing? Please share with me!

I´m gonna go cuddle in my lovely jumper now and then off to bed! Work tomorrow & I´m already longing for my daily dose of hot black heaven ;-)

Fall Makeup Look - Green & Gold

I guess you´re gonna see this "FALL" appear quite a few times on my blog nowadays. Hehe. I´m totally addicted/inspired and just trying to make the most out of Autumn as I can! :)

I love love love love love love fall and don´t want it to end! Gosh, feel like I´m wasting every single day at work.. Ffffff.... I´m like desperate?! Anyone else feeling like this, or am I just crrrrrazy?

OK, enough worry talk - here´s a look I did today. Actually I´ve been wearing something like this for a few weeks now, I love the green and gold. Also wearing a lot of khaki, beige, black, grey, armygreen in my outfits so it matches perfectly!

But hey, I tried this collage for my photos today - how does that work out for ya? I´m not quite sure if I love or hate it??? You know I´m a fan of huge photos.. I like good photos and details! Does this collage give the makeup justice..? Is it enough? Do the small ones get too small? Hmmm.. Please give me feedback..:)

Products used, eyes:

- The Body Shop Eye Shadow #43 & #44.
- Forever 21 Dark Green Eyeshadow.
- IsaDora #44 Golden Khaki Twist-Up Metallic Eye Pen.
- Collection 2000 Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liner #3 Funk.

I really like the Body Shop shadows! They´re pigmented and easy to apply. Kinda creamy. Lots of shimmer and color.
The Forever 21 shadow is something I came over when I was on my way to checkout.. Thought it would be perfect for smokey eye fall looks - and I was right;)
IsaDora metallic eye pen is just amazing!!!! Soooo soft and gives lots of color - LOVE it.

Guerlain Sun In The City Summer 2012 Collection

This post is kinda late! I´m sorry, summer is over and here I am talking about something that came out several months ago... Oh well, who cares, it´s a wonderful products and I´m glad that it´s mine :)

Please enjoy:)

I don´t know if I can say it enough - I love Guerlain. Simple as that.
Need no explanation why;)
Every year they come up with such beautiful collections, and every year I die a little inside because I can´t always afford buying all the products I want... But even tho Guerlain is kinda pricey, now and then I take the splurge and get myself some deliciousness :) I always know that no matter which product I get, I will be satisfied.

Guerlain have been launching quite a few collections of Terracotta bronzers, they all have something to die for - but this particular collection has a couple of special items, get ready to gasp. I saw the collection for the first time at the airport in Oslo when we were leaving for Thailand, typical me I went straight to the Guerlain counter for my dose of heaven - and there it was.
The most beautiful color and powder/shimmer/highlighter I had ever seen caught my eyes and I was just like I NEED THAT THING NOW!!! Ofc it was sold out because Norway is in general LAME. I will admit that at this point I was quite pissed off. Knowing that this is a limited product and If I don´t get my hands on it now, I probably never will..

Instead I treated myself with a two in one travel sized edition of the FANTASTIC Terracotta dry shimmering oil (I bought this last year and loved it) The smell is like heaven and I´ve been looking everywhere for a perfume that smells like it (please help me on this, im still looking out for this). Since it was a two in one there was one oil and one bodyspray! Just like I wanted :) I´ve been using it for two weeks and it´s almost empty:( And since it´s a body spray the scent doesn´t stay on forever...:/
Again; I want a perfume like this!!!!

ANYWAY I calmed myself down thinking I could get the Sun in the City powder in Bangkok.. Well, I was wrong! There´s no Guerlain counters in Bangkok? Maybe there are but not where I was looking.. And If I found any there were just perfumes there and no makeup..? Hmm.. Anyway over to the fun part. As we were on our way home we stopped halfway in Doha, Qatar and had about three hours until the connecting flight. I was not feeling well so I had my shortest trip to a taxfree ever I think.. I saw the Guerlain sign and was almost crawling my way ‘I NEED SUN IN THE CITY SHIMMEEEEER..’ They had lots in stock so I grabbed my piece forgetting all about checking the other products out tho.. I didn´t open it before I got home, and I didn´t have any idea what it would look like because both the times I saw it in stores the display powder was already almost empty after hundreds of people touching and swatching it... I just loved the color..

When I opened it, HOOOOOMFG I think my heart just skipped a beat or five, I think I lost my breath, my brain stopped functioning, it was....wassss... IT WAS FREAKING AWESOME in lack of better words, HELLO-OH the thing looks like it´s in 3D for crying out loud?! :D OK, don´t know If I´m a bit over enthusiastic here about this powder, but I just love it so much and it looks so pretty on my skin and and and I just want it to last forever! Now I feel SUPERSAD because I don´t wanna touch it anymore ruining the beautiful design, and even worse, I don´t want it to finish!!!! What am I going to do when it´s finished and I want to repurchase it!?!? It´s definitely worth $70 for sure, I would not question it a second. I´m actually considering buying another one for the time when my first one runs out..;) It has a light scent to it, the scent that makes your makeup smell luxurious..

Talking about luxurious, the whole thing is just pure luxury. It feels like your brushing gold on your freaking face, bathing your face in golden sun rays. OK, the average girl would probably not dip her face in glitter, shimmer and gold and feel good, I would :) he he.. I love all kinds of shimmer products, and sadly I can´t brag about having a huge collection, but this particular one is so beautiful I can´t keep my eyes off it and I can´t talk about it enough.. Guerlain got some pretty ones from before, for sure, but this one is SPECIAL. I like that it´s not multicolored, that is´t pure... pure gold really..:)

Well, enough talk, over to the pictures.

It´s hard to show exactly how beautiful it is via a photo, but these are the best I could get of it.

Fall Fashion Inspiration 2012

Lately I have been using Pinterest quite a lot to find inspiration for fall outfits, there´s soooo many nice pieces and outfits out there imma die looking at it! *pinning like crazy*.

Here´s a small collection taken from my Pinterest site, it´s just random photos found everywhere!
It´s really just basic outfits/items, easy to combine and it´s something almost everyone got lying around - you just gotta match it right :)

I´m extremely in love with fall, I love it more and more and know how to appreciate it more and more for every year that goes by. Right now I´m so inspired and I can easily imagine myself do like ten more posts like this!

Anyone else loving fall like I do? 


Right now I´m knitting my own sweater! I hope it´s gonna turn out amazing, he he, guess I´ll finish it in a couple of days. Can´t wait!
