Review – ABH liquid lipstick!

Hej allesammen! Som I ved, plejer jeg at lave mine reviews på engelsk, så jeg håber, at I også vil følge med i dag 🙂

Hey everyone! It’s time for another beauty review, and today I’m testing the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks. I have heard so many different things about these, so I thought that I would make my own review to let you know what my opinion is. I really wanted a nude liquid lipstick, so the first one I decided to purchase is called “Pure Hollywood”. It was really difficult to choose one since they have 35 colors to choose from. They are quite expensive here in Denmark (220 DKK / $35), so I actually got one of my friends to buy it for me in New York.

I was so excited to try it when I got it, but I was also scared that it wouldn’t be as good as I expected it to be. I had tried NYX’s “Lingerie” liquid lipstick, and it was awfully dry and patchy. Luckily, the ABH liquid lipstick applied so much better! The color was very opaque, and the product wasn’t drying for my lips at all. The color stayed on the entire day, but of course I had to do some touch ups after eating or drinking a lot. I was actually so pleased with the lipstick that I went out and bought another one, called “Spicy”. dsc_12366666Pure Hollywood” on bare lips with no liner.

This one is much more colorful, and I absolutely love the orange/red color of it. I had to do some more touch ups with this one, and I would also recommend wearing a lip liner with colors like this. NYX’s “Summer tease” is a good match with “Spicy”. You could also wear a lip liner with “Pure Hollywood”, but I don’t find it necessary. Another thing I love about this product, is the wand. It is short and has a flat side, which is perfect for applying the product. Also, this product doesn’t have a lot of scent to it. It smells makeup-ish (you know what I mean, haha) but it doesn’t smell like something have been added to it, to give it a strong scent. Now, let’s look at the good and bad things about this product.

+: Big shade range, good application/wand, lots of pigmentation, the smell isn’t too bad, good lasting power, they aren’t too drying, and last but not least the beautiful packaging.

-: You need to wear a liner with the non-nude colors, the price.

✮✮✮✮✮✩

Overall I have to give the ABH liquid lipstick 5/6 stars. They are the best liquid lipsticks I have ever tried, and the only problem I have with them, is that you have to go out and find a lip liner that matches the lipstick, since ABH don’t make their own lip liners. Also, they are a bit expensive, but they are definitely worth it!

 

OOTD – End of summer

Sommeren er officielt slut, og det kan mærkes på vejret! Selvom jeg elsker de varme sommerdage, glæder jeg mig til at hive alle mine støvler, frakker og lækre halstørklæder frem. Jeg fik skudt disse fine outfit billeder på en af sommerens sidste dage, og dem skal I ikke snydes for, selvom kalenderen siger efterår. Den røde farve fortsætter jo ind i efteråret, så I får måske kjolen at se igen om et par måneder, når den er stylet med en varm jakke og høje støvler 😉

English: Summer’s officially over, and the Danish weather must be aware of this, since it has been raining for the past few days. These pictures were taken on one of the last summer days of the year, and even though I love the warm weather, I can’t wait to pull out my fall accessories! The red color is a trend that continues in to the next season, so perhaps you will get to see the dress again in a few months, styled with a warm coat and some boots 😉

Som I ved, elsker jeg stamping, og for et par uger siden købte jeg et nyt sæt fra MoYou, med en gennemsigtig stamper. Jeg var bange for at det ville floppe helt, ligesom da jeg købte en lignende stamper på eBay, som var langt billigere. Heldigvis gik det meget bedre denne gang, og jeg er super tilfreds med resultatet! Jeg havde også bestilt en 50’er inspireret stamping plate, som jeg har brugt til dette design, og selvom dette mest var en tester, kunne jeg godt tænke mig at lave en gradient manicure med stamping på alle neglene. Hvad tænker I om det? Er det noget I har lyst til at se? 🙂

English recap: As you guys know, I absolutely love stamping, and a few weeks ago I ordered a new stamping set from MoYou. The set is much better than what I have tried from eBay, so if you like stamping too, you should definitely check them out! This is actually just a test design, but I would love to do a gradient manicure with 1950’s design on all of the nails. Would you like to see that as well? 🙂

Loving him was red

Hvis der er en trend jeg elsker lige nu, så er det den røde farve! Jeg har over de seneste par måneder fået anskaffet mig røde øreringe, en rød taske og forskellige nuancer af rød læbestift. Heldigvis fortsætter trenden ind i efteråret, og hvis du ikke er hoppet med på vognen endnu, kan du få lidt inspiration her. Jeg kunne sagtens finde på at hoppe i de røde støvler, men som I så i sidste indlæg, har jeg lige købt et andet par, så de røde må vente 😉 Hvilke items er i mest vilde med?

English: If there’s a trend that I’m loving right now, it’s the color red! Over the past couple of months I have accumulated red earrings, a red bag and different shades of red lipstick. Luckily, the trend is here to stay for fall, and if you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, here’s some inspiration for you. I would love to wear the red boots, but as you saw in my last post, I just got a new pair of boots, so the red ones will have to wait 😉 Which items do you like the most?

New in: Boots!

Der er lang tid til studiestart og køb af bøger, når man står med et par lækre støvler i hånden.. Sådan havde jeg det i hvert fald for et par dage siden, da jeg helt tilfældigvis (not) befandt mig i Zara. Jeg havde set støvlerne på Instagram, og jeg måtte altså lige ind og prøve dem, selvom månedens budget ikke inkluderer nye sko. De passede mig desværre helt perfekt, og så kan man jo ikke bare efterlade dem i butikken.. Vel? 😉

English: I feels like the new semester and expensive books are very far away when you’re standing with a pair of great boots in your hand.. At least that’s how I felt when I coincidentally (not) found myself in the Zara store the other day. I saw the boots on Instagram a few weeks ago, and I just had to try them on. Unfortunately, they looked amazing on me, so I couldn’t just leave them behind.. Right? 😉

Last minute fashion week outfit!

Jeg prøver altid at planlægge mine outfits i god tid, og det er især vigtigt for mig, når det kommer til modeugen. Da jeg forleden var på vej ud af døren, opdagede jeg, at min skjorte var lidt for krøllet, og der var altså ikke tid til at stryge den. Jeg hev derfor alt ud af mit klædeskab, og endte med at tage min fine Marc Jacobs kjole på, som kan redde enhver tøjkrise. For at det ikke skulle blive alt for sort og hvidt, farvede jeg mine læber med den fedeste orange/rødlige liquid lipstick, og jeg er vild med det! Hvad synes I om looket? 🙂

English recap: I always love to plan my outfit before an event, but last week at fashion week, it went wrong. The shirt I had planned to wear was way too wrinkled, so I had to pull out everything from my closet in a rush. I ended up going with my Marc Jacobs dress, which can save any fashion emergency. I added red lips to make sure the look wasn’t too boring, and I really like it! What do you think? 🙂

Fashion Week Moments!

Jeg har stadigvæk et par ugers sommerferie tilbage, så jeg var glad for at kunne tilbringe et par dage i modeugens tegn i denne uge. Dagene stod på fede events og cool shows – alt i alt en super god omgang! Nedenfor finder i nogle billeder af mine yndlingsøjeblikke fra ugen der gik. Deltog I selv i modeugen, eller har I fulgt med på de sociale medier? 🙂

English: I’ve still got a few weeks left of my vacation before I go back to school, which meant that I had plenty of time to participate in Copenhagen Fashion Week. I went to some great evens and some cool shows, and I had a really nice couple of days. I want to show you some pictures from my favorite moments this past week. Do you have a favorite fashion week moment? 🙂

Anniversary!

I sidste uge kunne min kæreste og jeg fejre 4 år sammen, og derfor tog vi en tur til Comwell i Sorø. De har desværre nedlagt deres spa afdeling, så eftermiddagen blev brugt på at gå en lang tur i den fine natur rundt om Sorø sø (vi hoppede i om aftenen, og selvom det er en sø, var vandet ikke ligefrem varmt, haha). Vi spiste middag på Solaris, hotellets restaurant, hvor vi havde udsigt til vinmarkerne. Maden var supper lækker, og så heller ikke værst ud, som I kan se her 😉 Vi havde en lækker weekend, og stedet kan klart anbefales til en hyggelig kærestetur pink_heart_with_ribbon_emoji_large

English recap: Last week, my boyfriend and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary at the Comwell hotel in Sorø. We spent the afternoon in the nature, walking around a big lake (we also jumped in later, and even though it was a lake, the water was not warm, haha!). We ate at the hotel’s restaurant, Solaris, and as you can see we got some delicious dishes! We had a lovely weekend, and if you ever come to Denmark, the hotel is a nice get away from the city pink_heart_with_ribbon_emoji_large

Simple tribal nail art!

Hey allesammen! Jeg håber, at I nyder sommeren, uanset hvor I er, og hvordan vejret er. Jeg er taget til Norge endnu en gang, og krydser fingre for, at vejret bliver bedre her end i Danmark. Inden jeg tog af sted lavede jeg disse fine sommernegle ved hjælp af Born Prettys stempelplade nr BP-L009. Der er så mange fine mønstre, og jeg kan helt klart anbefale deres plader. Min stamping kunne godt være bedre, da jeg stadigvæk prøver at finde den bedste måde at bruge min gennemsigtige stamper på.. Har I nogle tips, hvis I selv har prøvet det? 🙂

English recap: Hey everyone! I hope that you’re enjoying your summer, no matter where you are and what the weather is like. I’m spending a week in Norway again, and I hope that the weather will be better than it has been in Denmark. Before I left I did these tribal inpired nails by using the Born Pretty stamping plate number BP-L009. I think they turned out fine, even though the stamping could be better.. I’m still figuring out how to work my clear stamper. If you have any tips, please feel free to leave them below! 🙂

Barcelona in pictures – part 2!

2. del af turen til Barcelona byder på billeder af lækker mad, smukke strande og en tiltrængt sejltur! Jeg håber, at de to indlæg har inspireret jer til jeres næste tur til den spanske storby. flag-waving-250 0s6l28a6_400x400

English: the second part of our trip to Barcelona includes delicious food, beautiful beaches and a much needed boat ride! I hope that these two posts have inspired you for your next trip to the Spanish city. flag-waving-250 0s6l28a6_400x400

20170709_112225One of the last days, we went to Port vell to jump on one of the boats.

20170709_190130 I’m in love with this dress! It was so nice to walk around in this maxi dress in the heat!

20170707_114608 I love all of the palm trees! They really get me in the exotic mood.

20170707_193050Best meal of the trip! Paella at Divinus on Passeig de Gràcia.

20170707_115022 We went to one of the beautiful beaches along the coast, and of course I got sunburned..

20170709_130428One of my favorite activities on the trip was definitely the boat ride!
