When in Rome . . . Well when in Sweden you obviously need to watch the sailing, eat the cinnamon buns and sample the stunning scenery, Oooo and obviously have a holiday romance with Swedish make up brand, Make Up Store.
My poor husband got dragged round a department store in Gothenburg where I stumbled across this brand I’d never discovered until now!
The eye shadows retail for about €15 and the eye pencil for €11
I plumped for the eye pencil in Seduced by the Dark – a matte, warm, burnt chocolate. The eye pencil selection is vast and I may need to spend some more hard earned pennies on the sparkly gold version of this! The pencil is super super soft.
I then opted for two of the marble microshadows (there is nothing micro about these! They come in size of your average blusher!). I got a beautiful shimmering gold and a beachy, summery silver / blue / whitish called Alicante. I bought both as eyeshadow washes to sit under something a little bolder for definition. Again I may need to go back as the range and options were pretty vast. I tried an awful lot of colours in store and managed to build and combine some, to make some interesting effects and colours!
The products I bought I tested on my hand. Getting back to the hotel they needed some serious washing off. This can only be a good thing! I would imagine these beauties would last all day and all night!
Make Up Store products are available across Sweden, in a few places in the US and only in London in the UK – boo hiss! See husband, I really do need to stock up now!!
