Isadora Jelly Kiss Lipstick in Biscotti; Macchiato Wonder Nail Polish: Review, Pics, Swatches

Hmm. Brown nail polish and beige lipstick, I thought, as I looked dubiously at these samples from Isadora’s spring collection. I’m not sure if these are for me. But I had a go anyway, and whaddya know – I’m entirely charmed by these understated offerings from this lovely Swedish beauty brand.

Isadora Macchiato Wonder Nail Polish and Isadora Biscotti Jelly Kiss Lipstick

The lippie, called Biscotti, doesn’t apply at all how it looks in the tube. It’s one of Isadora’s award winning gloss lipsticks, Jelly Kiss, which deliver a sheer wash of translucent colour and shine. The formula is enriched with peach and apricot kernel oil and almond oil, to keep lips moisturised and soft. On the lips, this is a pretty, sheer nude that lights up the face – no heavy ‘concealer lips’ here, thanking you! It’s €12.95.

As for the polish, Macchiato is a chic and pretty deep taupe, with a subtle shimmer. It leans almost mauve in certain lights, and looks more grey in others. It’s a very elegant colour and perfectly office appropriate. The formula is quite thick – it reminded me of the Clinique polish I showed you here – and only needs one coat.

These Wonder Nail Polishes are €7.95 and contain a special water repellent film, to prolong the wear time of the product – I’m on day 3 now and counting, and it looks just like it did in the photo below.
Despite initial reservations, I've fallen for them both – are you a fan?

Adore the nail polish! Unsure about the lipstick but I'm not one for pale lips anyway :)

I love the lippy...that is gorgeous. Gives a mermaid shimmer, I love it :))) Not so keen on the nail polish, but I would try it anyways, haha! As sometimes when it's on, it gives a better perspective. So lovely on you though. Have a sweet weekend peach xx

Love everything about this look on you Emma, your skin, brows, liner and lips all so chic and pretty. Love the nails too. An all around classic look that looks perfect on you! I can see why these won you over!

they actually look really lovely despite looking scary in the bottle/on the bullet. Didnt even know this brand was present in ireland. I bought an eyeshadow quad from them a while ago and it had no colour payoff whatsoever. Might give them another go! xmoira

I've never tried nude color lippie. I'm all for it. As for the nail polish... not a fan of the color. ;)
