WANTED

Maksettu kaupallinen yhteistyö L’Oréal Paris:in kanssa// Paid collaboration with L’Oréal Paris

And then it happened, the most wanted limited edition WANTED collection by Isabel Marant for L’Oréal Paris has landed here in Finland. I’m overly excited, because Isabel Marant has always been one of my favorite designers. Nevertheless now, after being at the show in Paris earlier this fall.

Isabel Marant is a woman I connect with modern day beauty with the message: Just be yourself, whatever that may be. That however, can mean a lot of things and to me it means to be whoever you feel like that specific day or in that specific moment.

The collection includes these following products: SHINE highlighter, AMAZE tint gloss for cheeks, lips and eyes. It also has a wonderful SMOKE eyeshadow palette, that unfortunately isn’t available here in Finland, WANTED brow and eye polisher/mascara and the SMILE lipsticks.

Isabel Marant created a small collection with small products because she wanted to be able to carry all of her necessities with her at all times. As a mother and successful designer, she wanted products that can be tapped on easily on-the-go. I love her way of thinking, and I’ve always loved small and easy makeup products, because even though I usually do my makeup in the morning, I still want to be able to touch up along the day without having to carry a huge makeup bag with me.

When I met Isabel Marant in Paris, she said that she wanted a clear mascara because she doesn’t want anything to block eye contact. This sheer brow & eye mascara is perfect if you like to fixate your curled lashes but prefer a very natural look. Personally, I love the look of full black eyelashes so I’m not ready to give it up but instead, I use the clear mascara on my brows to brush them upwards. The translucent formula adds texture and volume to enhance and define brows and lashes with a soft, conditioning hold.

SHINE is thehighlighter if you don’t like any kind of shimmer. It’s completely free of shimmer, so it gives a very subtle shine.

AMAZE is along with the lipsticks the product I like the most out of the collection. I use it on my cheeks and it’s a really nice and fresh color that mimics winter rosy cheeks after a day out in the cold. It’s a multi-purpose product, so you can use it on the cheeks, as lip-gloss or to add gloss to your eyelids.

The lipsticks are my favorites from the collection and I’ve found one that turned my world upside down. I love lipstick and feel like it gives me a confident boost in the mornings. Classic red and the perfect shade of nude that matches my own lips are the two shades I use the most. Now, I’ve found a new favorite nude, that replaces the old one I’ve been using for years. It’s the shade Bastille Whistle, my signature lip shade since a couple of months back. I’ve worn it nonstop ever since I got it.

Red lips are always a good idea, and my choice of red from this collection is this beautiful brick red color: La Butte Marshal. These lipsticks are very soft and neither glossy or completely matte. They just make the lips look moist and smooth.

The collection is now in stores for a limited time forward.

Hi! Sorry for being absent for a few days. As I mentioned earlier, I’ve had two full days of modelling for others than my own channels this week, so I’ve lost many good hours of screen time. Now I finally handed in my school assignment that I’ve been working on both day and night, so now I’m staking the rest of the day off. We’re picking up the kids earlier for some family time and then I’m actually going out for dinner with my husband.

The rest of the weekend will however be spent in front of the computer again. I’m not complaining though, because my goal is to just push forward until December. It will be here sooner than we realize and then, I’m rewarding myself with some well-deserved time off. Well, at least from school. When I don’t have school to think about it feels like a vacation already ;).

Here is a sugary sweet look from the ByMalina pre-spring collection. I just had to show you, because I love the color of the skirt and top. It’s the perfect berry pink! I would pair the skirt with a chunky knit for daytime (like here) and wear it as a set for nighttime. Now I’d better start getting ready before it’s go time. Have a lovely evening!
