I am soooo sorry

The last week has been work work work and I have neglected my blog totally. I promise to come back with more posts soon. So what have I done between my working hours? Tried to relax with a bath and a facemask.

Lime Crime

I am a sucker for cute makeup. I can almost fall in love with an adorable packaging. I ordered 2 Lime Crime lipsticks a while back, mostly because of the pink packaging with a holographic unicorn.

First out is the colour Retrofuturist

Swatches on the lip

Sweet colour huh?
Its on the dry side, very pigmented and glides on perfect. And the best part is, it has great stayingpower.

Not all webshops are on my friendslist.

Unfortunately I've had a really bad experience with a webshop recently. I did order 3 items the 26th of August from www.preciousaboutmakeup.com Yesterday my package finally arrived, I got informed that it would take about 3 business days, not 3,5 weeks! And the worst part is, one item was missing.

I have ordered a lot from the internet over the past few years and I mostly have good experiences. I have written them an e-mail now, and I hope they are coming back to me asap.

I will keep you informed, but untill then, find another webshop =)

My freelance brushes

This is how I store my brushes when I'm not working. I have another set of brushes for myself, mostly MAC, I will show you those later. As you can see I have 2 sets of brushes, one with my lovely Sigma brushes and one that's a lot of Make Up Store and some random brushes. I bought 2 flowerpots and filled them with small platics balls so they can stand up, if i have them in my brushroll or my brushbelt I feel they get flat and misshaped.

The last 2 days

You may have noticed it has been quiet on the blog for the last two days. I have been working long days and just haven't had the time to update. Here is a short summary about my week so far.

We had a happening in our store where the famous swedish Hollywood housewife Maria Montazami were visiting. She was releasing her new lipstick in cooperation with Make Up Store. It was over 120 people in our tiny store that wanted to take pictures with her and get her to sign the lipstick. It was sooo crowded, but so much fun.

Some random pictures from the evening:

I woke up and thought the whole building was going to fall apart. The hurricane Katia was here. And guess what, I had a photoshoot outdoors... Oh joy.

I met the photographer and stylist David and the lovely model Isabella so we could do some makeup and try on the clothes before we went outside.

Then we went outside... for like 6 hours in the hurricane. It was crazy I tell you, but I think David got some really good pictures. I will show you when I get them. (Ofcourse I forgot to take pictures outside)

How I store my mascara wands

I was so tired of always having my mascara wands like everywhere, so I decided to sew my own little bag for them.
Picture spam incoming!

So what do you think?

Home again.

So now Im back from Stockholm and the amazing Make Up Stores SHOWGIRL show. Its not like any other fashionshow, its a SHOW with the makeup in focus. Actually I was so busy watching the models coming down the catwalk and from the ceiling, that I totally forgot to take any pictures. Please forgive me!

But when I got home there were 2 packages waiting for me... wee :)
It was this adorable little pocket mirror, I will have this one in my handbag instead of always using the mirror inside my compact powder.

My second package was a lot of testers from Garden of Wisdom, I have really been looking forward to getting these ones, since I have heard so much good about GoW. And I'm badly in need of some new skincare.

So I ordered 3 cleansers, 2 toners, 2 serums, 1 lotion and a healing gel. I think I paid around $22 for everything.
The products smells really good and you only need the tiniest amount, so these small boxes will last for a while and hopefully give me time to review them.

I washed my face directly after I had opened the package to try some of them out and now my face still feels very soft and smooth (3 hours after). Looks promising, stay tuned for updates!

Make Up Store Showgirl

At the moment Im running around in the apartment, trying to figure out what to bring. Im packing my suitcase for a short visit to Stockholm and Make Up Stores realease party of the new collection SHOWGIRL. Every fall MUS have a huge show, this year its in Globen and its going to be even bigger since they are celebrating 15 years. I will take a lot of pictures (tho by now you know my photographer skills, so dont expect to much).


Cya there?


What to do on a sunday....


Illamasqua - Theatre of the nameless

This is amazing inspiration. I just love the promopictures from Illamasqua, they are different and edgy.


I dont know if I could pull off a green lipstick in real life, but it looks good in picture.

More pictures and information about the products you can find here :

What a lovely mailman..

He delivered three packages for me yesterday, this weekend is starting off really good.

Do you want to see what is inside?

Ofcourse it was more eyelashes!
I dont really like the box they are in, its paper and easy smashed. Not good to send by mail, or bring with you in the makeup bag. BUT, the quality is high, they are flexible and light. I would love to see more of these ones in a better box. Definately going to use them very soon.

I also got some disposal mascara wands, It makes life so easy when you dont have to wash them, just throw them away;P

Last but not least, my hair thingies!

Now I have to practise doing some really nice and funky hairstyles. Looking forward to try them out, since my hair is like impossible to do anything with.

I also did some shopping at MAC today, I will show you that later!


Oh so pretty

I have bought the most beautiful lipstick. Well the colour is not special, yet its also stunning. But it's the lipstickcasing itself that's just amazing. I could sit and look at it or just hold it in my hands for hours. The price was rather steep, but it was worth it... just look at it.. Im almost falling in love!

Its Guerlain Rouge 70 Gigolo

Ebay... my worst enemy or best friend?

Whats better than coming home from work and you have a package waiting for you?
(Good thing I have trained my boyfriend, that the most important thing when an AVI has arrived at the doormat is to drop everything and run to the postoffice to get the package)

Today it was a tiny delivery, only some eyelashes. (I have ordered a lot, to compare different styles and quality)

So first out was this pack with 4 different styles, 2 pairs of each.  The wraping wasnt so good, so one of the boxes was destroyed, but the lashes weren't affected so. I really like the small pink boxes, they are kinda hard, so they dont get easily smashed and they are tiny so they dont take to much space in my makeup-case. Unfortunately the lashes feels very plastic.

Im not gonna totally diss them before I have tried them on, but it doesn't look good.

Lets hope for better lashes in the next delivery :) 

Who am I ?

Mabye its time to introduce myself, if you dont know me in real life you may have a few questions, who the heck is this?

Well first of all, my name is Line, Im 28 years old and Im from Norway. At the moment Im living with my boyfriend in Gothenburg, Sweden. Im working fulltime as a makeup artist, both as freelance, in a store and as a teacher. And I absolutly love my job, every day is different from the next one. But makeup/beauty is not only my job, its my passion, my hobby and my life.  My goal in life is to find the perfect foundation (next to get a house, kids, a few millions in the bank and so on, but stuff like that we dont talk about on this blogg). 

I have different periods of favourite products, one month it can be lipsticks and I cant get enough of it. The next month it may be nailpolishes and my whole salary is gone on some random webshop. For a very long time eyeshadows was the most imporant thing in life, I mean, it was so many shades of purple, and I had to collect them all.  Well, I think you get the point. And you will probably soon figure out what the product of the month is:)

When im not working, I spend a lot of my time reading blogs, watching youtube clips, organizing my makeup or shopping online.  I dont have a life beside makeup, did i mention that? ;)

Aaah well, I think you know enough now, but if u still have any questions, please leave a comment!


My Wishlist atm

A few things in life would make me so happy... for my make up kit I would love to have these 3 things atm. Would make everything so easy :)

Oh, what just happend?

Oh thats right, I have decided to start a blog after beeing a bloggaholic for years! I have no idea if anyone will be interested in my everyday life with and without makeup and nailpolish, but here we go! 

After many hum and hu about what language I was gonna use, I decided it has to be english (doh, you may have noticed) But since im from Norway and live in Sweden, and mix those 2 languages like a retard this will be a good oportunity to fresh up my english, so bare with me and the type errors please.

If someone actually do see this, dont hesitate to leave a comment that will cheer me up.
