Many of you are already aware that I am currently working as a Copywriter and Public Relations Specialist at Paris Gallery, the leading luxury retailer in the UAE. It’s been almost two months now, actually and it’s been great, not only because of the sense of satisfaction I get from working at such an esteemed establishment but also because I have access to all the wonderful cosmetics available at Paris Gallery. Let me tell you, the list of wonderful beauty products goes on and on! Yep. I can affirm that working at Paris Gallery is pretty much a beauty blogger’s dream job. Although, my wallet doesn’t agree.
One of the amazing brands available at Paris Gallery is IsaDora, a Swedish beauty brand that offers a wide range of make-up products, a complete mineral line with 100% minerals, and special products. With first class ingredients that are fragrance free and clinically tested (not animal tested), IsaDora is perfect for those with sensitive eyes and skin.
Recently, a bunch of IsaDora products landed on my beauty desk and I am going to tell you ALL about them in this post. Those of you that know me, know that I love a killer bold lipstick color every now and then but when it comes to the rest of it, I prefer simple, light and natural makeup which is why I am obsessed with these new products form IsaDora.
First up – is my pick for IsaDora’s star product:
Perfect Powder Blusher in Perfect Peach
This richly pigmented, pressed powder rouge is peach, bordering on coral and has a super fine texture that lasts about 9 hours on the skin. The compact includes a small application brush made from 100% goat hair.
Fine Liner Eye Stylo in Dark Brown
Perfect for creating a precise line on the eyelids.
Perfect Brows Duo Compact Powder in Brown Duo
This is a new product for IsaDora and is one of my favorites. I have not gone a day without using it since I received it. It can be used wet for an intense effect or dry for a natural effect. It is extremely long-lasting and has a matte finish to it. The brown duo shades can be mixed together to create a desired shade or used on their own. In the compact, there is a dual ended applicator – a brush for a deeper color application and a sponge for a softer color and to blend. It also has a mirror for on-the-go applications!
Twist-Up Matte Lips in Naked
This handy, retractable twist-up pen does not require a sharpener! Yay! I really love chubby lipsticks but hate that most of them available on the market require sharpening. This particular range of lipsticks contains papaya fruit extract and orchid flower extract. Even though it has a matte finish, I find that it is not drying at all. I received the lipstick in Naked which is a gorgeous nude shade that totally suits my skin-tone. It is not as long-lasting as I would have liked but that’s okay because it is one of those lippies that you can apply without even looking at a mirror and so I pretty much put it on as if I were putting on a lip balm. It glides on the lips effortlessly!

Perfect Contour Kajal Waterproof in Deep Grey
This kajal in deep grey is almost black. I use it whenever I want a softer effect than what is offered by black liners. It glides on the lids pretty easily and can be used on the water line. The waterproof quality is not that great though so it is not as long-lasting as it claims but it does get me through the work day!
Perfect Moisture Lipstick in Juicy Peach
Moisturizing and creamy, this lipstick is richly pigmented and conditioning so it is perfect for chapped lips. It contains Candelilla wax, Pantheonol and Vitamin E to condition lips thoroughly. Again, not really long-lasting but super easy to apply.
