IsaDora Twist-Up Gloss Sticks – Bare & Beautiful

Nude, glossy and moisturizing. That sums up these beautiful gloss sticks, which I’ve been loving lately.

I was so excited, when I heard that IsaDora was coming up with new shades for their Twist-Up Gloss Sticks. I was even more excited, when I heard that the Bare & Beautiful collection was all about nude colors. Who doesn’t love nude lipsticks? Nowadays it’s more of a classic rather than a trend. A sheer color close to your own lip colour looks good on anyone.

And I don’t know about you, but right now I’m all about that glossy and shiny look.

These products were kindly sent to me as pr-samples

Isadora Twist-Up Gloss Stick swatches & review

I got four beautiful nude shades: Toffee Pop, Bare Belle, Boho Beige and Milk ‘N Chocolate. There’s some warmer colors, one that is quite neutral and one, that is very cool-toned. Here are some swatches. Which one is your favorite?

Three of these colors were totally new to me, but one of these I’ve had before. Milk ‘N Chocolate was the color, that I’ve used before and it’s one of the very rare lipsticks that I managed to use up totally. It was and now is again one of my favorite nude lipsticks. Another favorite of mine is now Bare Belle – it’s a beautiful neutral, almost a bit cool-toned nude. It’s not as warm as Milk ‘N Chocolate.

The consistency in the *Twist-Up Gloss Sticks is for my taste, because they combine the shine of a lip gloss and the creamy feel of a lipstick. They contain ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and collagen pre-peptides, which hydrate, firm and plump your lips. And obviously whenever you’re putting something shiny on your lips, they are gonna look bigger and plumper.

One thing that is great with nude lipsticks, is that they wear off beautifully. Since these are not matte and the colors are muted, they look natural wearing off. And finally I have to note that these have a delicious vanilla-chocolate scent, that is still quite mild.

The best mascara for small lashes

You don’t see mascara reviews often on my blog. That’s mainly, because my lashes are quite shy and very natural-looking. You know,  invisible. They are short and small – every woman’s dream. So, when I stumble onto something, that actually makes a difference in my lashes and is  great (and innovative!), I have to share it with you.

What speaks to me in mascaras is nice packaging, but also the wand. And this mascara wand is something, I haven’t seen before. IsaDora’s Insane Volume Lash Styler mascara is definitely in my top 3 best mascaras and it’s great for humble lashes such as mine.

The mascara was received as a pr-sample.

IsaDora Insane Volume Lash Styler Mascara review

When I first opened this mascara, I was intrigued. The mascara wand is really unique! It’s 1/3 of a classic rubber wand, but then there’s this part, where it’s kinda like a comb. See?

And let me tell you – that wand is an expert of giving volume to your lashes. The comb makes it easy to add volume and mass to the roots, while keeping the tips thin! And the normal side of the wand is really nice too – I prefer rubber bands like this, but it’s obviously just personal preference. I feel like it separates my lashes nicely and gives them volume, but doesn’t make them clumpy. It also stays well on my lashes, and doesn’t crumble on my under eye area.

Here is the mascara on my lashes. I’ve already used one tube entirely and I have a back up ready to go – that’s how convinced I’m about this one (though I have lash extensions at the moment, another great thing for small lashes).

I spy with my little eye.. my lashes! They might be short, but they are determined to show.

You can find this mascara on *amazon or on *amazon.

What is your favorite mascara and why? What kind of a finish does it offer?

And what do you guys think of this kind of mascara review, where the model’s lashes aren’t the best kind? Does the mascara seem any good in this light? Or maybe there are other small-lashed beauties out there?
