I’m so sorry guys! I feel like I’m spamming you with Isadora reviews for such a long time now but I always get excited with their new releases.
From Isadora’s website:
Our inspiration is taken from an atelier located in a pulsating city, spring is in the air and light comes in with pulsating colours which sets the standard for this seasons colour palette. We work with sculpting, highlighting with light and shades.
Highlight the contours of the face with soft peach and pink tones and dress the lips with soft nude pink. The highlighter and light tones reflects the eyes and your best traits.
Top it off with the roll-on eyeliner to give the last finish which will give a sophisticated and gorgeous look.
As with all the other reviews I’ve had on Isadora’s collections this one will also follow my principle to only buy the products that I feel I need.
My point has also been that one of the reasons why I love Isadora’s collections so much is that they always expand their existing product lines and add some few new products within these collections.
I feel very strongly that this is a more consumer friendly way for a makeup brand to do business. Instead of releasing an endless line of limited editions or releasing new products that end up being half hacked because brands just want them to get out on the market as quick as possible.
Eyeshadow quad in 14 Peach Avenue
- Silky and creamy texture
- Extra long wearing + 12 hours
- Intense colour
- Melts into skin
- Weight: 5.0 g/ .17 oz.
Clinically tested and contains no perfume
This was one of my must have items from this collection as I’m in need for some easy ready to wear eyeshadows that are suitable for work.
I’ve also missed having quads in my makeup bag as palettes have dominated the makeup scene for quite some time now. Which is something I honestly don’t quite understand as quads are much easier to deal with and you don’t end up with shadows you don’t use or are incapable/unsure of combining.
Peach Avenue is not the most creative or original release but I love these shades and their finish.
These eyeshadows have a very silky matte finish that never looks dry on the eye and it does actually both look and feel like they melt into the skin.
It is a really enjoyable formula as I sometimes find matte eyeshadows to sometimes be dry-looking on the eyes or even difficult to blend out evenly. These eyeshadows on the other hand blend easily with each other and with other eyeshadow formulas.
One thing I have to say about these are that they work best without a primer. They are not as smooth or creamy on top of primer and they become very textured aswell.
Now onto the colours.
Like mentioned earlier this quad is not revolutionary but I really enjoy the shades here as I find this quad really easy for everyday use and when I need to be quick about my makeup.
From top left to bottom right.
The first shade is the essential highlighting/browbone shade. It is a soft cream colour with a neutral undertone, I have two other similar shades in my collection but I really love how soft this shade translates on my eyes.
As previously mentioned these don’t work well with a primer. With this shade the primer makes the shadow darker but also uneven.
The second has started to become one of my new favourites. It is a greyish taupe which has started to become my go to transition shade as it is not overpowering in my crease like a lot of other eyeshadows have a habit of being. It is gorgeous in combination with a shimmer packed shade aswell.
This one darkens with a primer and also becomes a bit difficult to blend.
The third shade is really the star of this quad. It is a lovely peachy shade that goes on more bright on the eyelid than it looks like it would. I really love how much this makes my eyes pop especially in combination with the rest of the shades in this quad. It is gorgeous and makes the blue in my eyes pop out.
Of all the shades in the quad this one has least difficulties with primer.
The last shade is a chocolate-brown. I currently don’t own a shade like this in my makeup collection which might sound wierd to a lot of people as it is one of those fundamental shades. I’ve used this as a soft eyeliner aswell as a lid colour and it is absolutely beautiful, especially with the finish this quad has.
This one is the most powdery of the shadows and it performs like the cream colour when applied to primer.

One thing I have to say is that I really love the colour palette of this as these sort of shades work really well on my complexion as they manage to make me look healthy by adding a bit of warmth to my face.
Some people may react to the scent of this but I need to remind people that this is how makeup smells when there is no added perfume. What you smell is the scent of the ingredients.
With that disclaimer gone let’s get down to it.
I’m starting with the orange shade and continue clockwise.
The orange shade has a slight golden sheen to it. It does give a very fresh look and a true glow from within effect which I always love in a blush. It is the standout shade of this wheel but I also think that it is a very wearable shade at the same time and one that will suit very many since it is neither overly warm or bright.
The second shade is a slightly cool toned berry shade with golden shimmer in it. I’ll be honest and say that this is a shade I have to be a bit careful with since if I’m too heavy-handed this can easily make me look as if I have a bruise on my cheek, but it is a gorgeous colour and I love sporting it when I’m doing a more cool toned look. I think this is a shade that will look better on people with medium neutral/cool toned skin.
The third shade is somewhat similar to the second one but it is brighter and more of a coral shade. It also features the golden sheen that dominates the wheel, it is also a shade I have to be light handed with but it does give a very beautiful effect when applied but I strongly feel that this shade is better for people with a medium skin tone.
The last blush shade is a matte muted peachy shade. This one is a really typical blush shade that suits well for pale skin and I do find myself wearing this a lot lately since it is fool-proof and easy to apply when I need to be quick about my makeup. The effect it gives is a subtle one but it looks very fresh and natural on the cheeks.
There is one highlighter shade in this wheel and it is a subtle light golden shade. It is light enough to look great on my skin which usually golden highlighters rarely do. It will look good on most people but it is very subtle and that might not be what everyone likes but I do prefer it this way. What surprises me the most is that I am capable of using this to highlight my nose and cupids bow without it making me look odd.
In the end I absolutely love this wheel, not only are the shades beyond gorgeous but the formula is super silky and easy to apply. I also love that I can use these as eyeshadows as these are pigmented but still buildable.
Precise roll-on Eyeliner in 20 Black
This is a completely new product from Isadora which features the “pizza wheel” applicator.
Contains 1 ml of product and is clinically tested aswell as unperfumed.
- Super easy and quick application.
- Easily rolls on an even line.
- Perfect for creating a winged eyeliner look.
- For a thicker line, roll the wheel back and forth.
- High coverage.
- Water proof.
- Dries fast.
How to use
- Shake well before use and roll the wheel along the lash line for the wished effect.
The first time I used this I did not have the highest hopes but I was surprisingly taken aback at how clean I managed to get my first attempt at a cat eye with this product. Obviously you need to make sure that the wheel is completely aligned the way you want it to be but it isn’t that difficult if you don’t rush it.
This is also thanks to the packaging, the handle is shaped to be comfortable to hold, making it easier to steady the hand to create the perfect line. I like the fact that the handle is also quite long as it helps steadying the hand even more.
The formula is ink black and there is no grey or brown undertone that some black eyeliners have. It applies very wet something I prefer in a eyeliner as it makes it easier for me to clean up a line with the applicator. The only con I have of the formula is that it dries very quickly and it can be difficult to properly fill in whatever needs to be filled in.
But those cons are small in my opinion when this has proven itself to be very hardy on the eye, it is extremely waterproof and I did test this during a heavy snowstorm and while my mascara was ruined the eyeliner was looking as perfect as when I applied it.
Another thing to mention is that I do find the applicator difficult for my inner corners but again it is for me a minor complaint when I compare it to what I like about it.
The finish it leaves is a semi-matte and I do prefer matte finishes to my eyeliners but I find myself loving this.
Thank you for reading!
