Glam of Sweden was launched in 2014 and is based in Tomelilla, Skåne. And ever since their launch, they have given cheap priced makeup a new meaning. They have a passion for doing things differently, and they wanted a new way of selling makeup. Their idea was “pick & Mix”, a whole new concept in the beauty industry. And their products would be found in stores where we do our daily shopping.
Glam of Sweden does powders, eyeshadows, mascaras, false lashes, face masks, and a lot more. The manufacturing is according to EU standards and no products are tested on animals. Not all of their products are vegan, but a big part of it.
We had the amazing opportunity to try out some of their makeup and skincare range! And we wanted to share our first impressions of all of them.

Liquid Matte Lipstick (vegan) – Smells exactly like the “Zoo” candy, makes you want to eat it! Last almost the entire day, just have to top up after a meal.
Lip Gloss with Gold Flakes (vegan) – Perfect on its own, but even better on a lipstick. A gloss with gold flakes that makes your lips shimmer.

Nail Polish Skull Metallic – The bottle makes you fall in love at first sight. If doesn’t, then you might fall in love with the subtle metallic finish.
Nail Polish Chrome (vegan) – With a small, compact brush, you apply the nail polish easily. It dries quickly and the chrome finish truly gives of that va-va-woom effect! Make sure to use a base coat before applying.
Nail Polish Shell (vegan) – An outstanding color that will complete the summer look.

Eyeliner – A waterproof liner that will last all day.
One Step Eyebrow gel (vegan) – A waterproof and smudge proof eyebrow gel for a fuller, natural-looking brow definition.
My absolute favorite from these goodies, is the creamy concealer, face primer and eyeliner. The concealer covers really well and comes handy when cleaning up around your eyebrows. The face primer makes the foundation one with your skin. And the eyeliner gives a glossy result and the tip makes it easy to create a wing. I also really liked all of the nail polishes, they were so easy to apply and dried fast. The chrome one was extraordinary and I’m sure I will use it plenty of times!
