If you’re a regular reader of BBB then you’ll know that I often feature Isadora beauty products even though we can’t get them in the UK. I’d love to see them available – they’re a real contender for some of our mid-priced beauty brands (I’ve tried really, really hard to persuade them as well.. come on Isadora!). As it is, you’ll have to look out for them when you travel.

Above is one of two neutral palettes for the Isadora Holiday 2014 collection and it’s one of the prettier neutral palettes around. In fact, I wore the first shade, which is a shimmer wash, over a grey shadow today (I know, a bit risky for a Tuesday morning) and it stayed longer than the eyeshadow under it did.

The formula for the shimmer shades is quite soft – very blendable, and the matte shades are less soft but great for a smudge.

I’m a big fan of Isadora Nails – they use a wide brush which suits me really well for a quick application. The three shades above are Nuit, Vintage Gold and Passionate – all new shades for the brand.

The Isadora Holiday 2014 Collection nails all have a soft metallic element to them which I really like, and they’re mercifully quick to dry, too.

So, while the holiday collection isn’t all the accessible as things stand, if you are taking a little trip to Europe, it’s a brand to look out for. The palette is £21.75 and the Nail Polishes are £8.25 each.
