IsaDora Bohemian Rhapsody Review and Swatches
Oooooo chicas let me tell you. It’s icy cold outside. It’s been a weird few days in my little city as the weather is more Winter than Fall. But we had a few warm Fall days around these parts and lord knows it’s my very fav time of the year.
I’m celebrating Fall with Isadora Bohemian Rhapsody today. It’s a rather fab little collection that’s inexpensive and quite sitting with the season plus it carries the name of my very favorite song from Queen what more could a girl want? Did I ever tell you about my Freddy Mercury obsession? Wait…maybe we’ll skip that chat otherwise we’ll never get to the review.
What was I saying? Oh yes the IsaDora Bohemian Rhapsody Collection!
Check it after the jump!
I love this collection. Love it, love it, love it. Could be because I’m such a lover of the Fall season but all the shades in this particular collection are just so very lovely and flattering on my brown eyes.
The key piece for me was the IsaDora Eye Palette in Bohemian Rhapsody. The palette contains an array of colors that creates this interesting fallen leaf look on you eyes. Seriously, it reminds me of the changing leaves. The small tutorial that IsaDora gave on it’s site was to use the green on the lid, contrasting in the crease with the chocolate brown, and using the bronze in the inner corner of the eye. This mimics a leafy look for me as it combines all the great elements of nature. The leaves changing from green, to a coppery orange, and finally to a dark brown. I’m so poetic about an eye palette aren’t I?
The palette is $19.50 and contains five shadows for one complete look. You can of course mix and match or wear alone as you see fix. The shades are all pigmented and blend quite nicely although I’ve noticed that most IsaDora Eye Palettes tend to end up a bit muddy when colors are used together just be careful and gentle when blending. Colors included are a deep chocolate brown, an olive green, a fiery orange bronze, cream, and a warmer golden bronze.
For my look below I used the deep chocolate in my crease, the olive green on my lid, the cream shade on my highbrow, the fiery orange bronze in the inner corner and blended a little into the inner rim, and the warmer golden bronze to line my lower lashes.
My second favorite items are the lipstick and gloss shades released with the collection. I’m wearing IsaDora Chrome Lip Polish in Candied Apple on my lips in the photos above. This is a warm metallic red with a heavy base of brown. The pigmentation is incredible on this but I’m not a fan of the texture and feel of lip polishes as I find them difficult to apply with out getting them all over my mouth. I saved face with Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion, thank god for that stuff.
Two other great finds with the collection are IsaDora Perfect Moisture Lipstick in Russet and IsaDora Mega Wet Gloss Sheer in Choco Glaze. Russet is a rusty orange with hints of brown, orange, and red while Choco Glaze is a brown chocolate shade with hints of golden shimmer. Both products are heavily pigmented with very nice formulas.
Overall, the collection is incredibly affordable and creates a warm, rich look for Fall. I’m quite pleased with all the pieces and Muse Approve ’em for purchase. One thing I do love the most about IsaDora is the fact it combines great quality with such a small price tag.
There was some discussion about where to purchase IsaDora and I found it was best to visit Cosmetic Mall but since that time it seems you have to purchase two or more pieces to order. Rather than go through the hassle you can purchase from from Cosmetic Mall but via Amazon. The entire Fall Collection is available and it ships in a matter of a few days.
All in all IsaDora Bohemian Rhapsody was a winner for me. Loves it!
