NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer Review – The Search

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. The perfect foundation, the perfect mascara, the perfect concealer. Is the hunt ever truly over? You don´t need to answer that. The fact that you stopped by here for a NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer Review gives away that you, just like me, are still searching.     Of course perfection means different things for all of us (no, don´t go, I am not going to drift off into metaphysical spheres here!). I…

Makeup Declutter – The Eye Edition

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it or film the corresponding video. Please read disclaimer. After my first attempt at a makeup declutter back in February (read about it here), I somehow got side tracked and didn´t continue with the project. For no specific reason, it just slipped my mind. But when I did my nails on Easter Monday (because that is what bank holidays are for) and then immediately smudged it again as my eyeshadow palette tower…

Beauty Low Buy 2019 – April Update

Advertisement information: This blog post features PR-Samples (gifted items) and uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. I admit I thought this months Low Buy Year 2019 Update would be much worse than it actually turned out to be. You might know that I am a huge Game of Thrones fan (I even read all the books before anyone ever thought about turning it into a series, and believe me, while the series is great, the books are epic!). And you might also know…

pixi T Zone Peel Off Mask Review – Maybe this time…

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. One of the perks of running a beauty blog is being sent stuff to test. The worst part of running a beauty blog though is being sent stuff to test. Confused much? Hear me out. I will explain using the pixi T Zone Peel Off Mask as example.  I mean, everybody gets the “perks” part. New skincare arriving at your door step every month, what´s not to love?…

Monthly Recap April 2019

You know what they say about April weather in Germany? That it is temperamental. You´ll always get a mixed bag, ranging from snow to wind to a sudden heat wave. I didn´t know that was true for everything in your life though, not only for the weather. April surely handed me a mixed bag of events!     Let´s start with the enjoyable part: We took the kids on a holiday to the mountains, to Nesselwang in beautiful Allgäu, on a farm with animals for some hands on experience. My…

Murad Skincare finally available in Germany – My reviews

It wasn’t that long ago (January 2019, to be precise, I caught it on video here) that I moaned about the fact that Murad Skincare, a brand I was very curious to try, was not available in Germany. The Murad Skincare Reviews I had read put it right at the top of my “To Buy” list, and only my Low Buy Year 2019 was to blame for the fact that I hadn’t already placed a huge order. &nbsp It is funny how things work out though, because now, three months…

Milk Makeup Ubame Mascara – Balls

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I promised at the beginning of the year that I would write more mascara reviews, given that it is the one makeup item I do finish regularly. And I intend to stick to my promise by talking about the Milk Makeup Ubame Mascara. It isn´t a new mascara, it isn´t even a new to me mascara, in fact the Milk Makeup Ubame mascara has been sitting in my drawer for around a year now.     Unopened, I might…

Beauty Empties April 2019

Advertisement info: This blog post features PR-Samples and uses affiliate links. I did not receive any money to write the blog post or film the video. Please read disclaimer. Do you enjoy reading about the trends in blogging? I admit I do. Not because I think about adapting my content, it is just part of my nosey nature to be interested in that. It seems that the beauty community is taking a (long overdue) turn towards sustainability in 2019, which leads to Beauty Empties videos and Decluttering becoming more popular…

Cosmeceutical products – Do you need them?

Advertisement information: This blog post contains paid for content. Links used may be affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I admit I have a weakness for sciencey stuff. And by sciencey stuff I don’t mean “real science” (whatever that may be), but things like cosmeceutical products. (I even wrote about that before) Now before you come at me, I am not telling you that there is a valid reason to my fascination. I indeed intend this blog post to be a confession, which pretty much gives away that there is NO…

Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation Review

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. You know how I keep telling you that I won´t purchase some products because I feel almost insulted by the names companies give them? And I am not talking the tongue in cheek names here (I have a pretty high tolerance to that). No, I am talking about things like the Farsali Unicorn Essence. Unicorns? Really? I am grown up, I don’t want glitter and rainbows.     Although I admit I was seriously tempted to overlook that quite…
