The most efficient way to finish foundation? Apart from wearing it consistently, of course? Dropping the glass bottle on the bathroom tiles.
And a great way to test the waterproof claims, too.
How do I know that? Well, I did just that, a few weeks ago, when my bottle of Catrice 24 h Made to Stay makeup shattered on the tiles.
Just to be crystal clear: This is not the way I will be testing my foundations from now on. Trying to get it off the floor at 6 am (and yes, it is at least water resistant!) while already dressed in office attire is not recommended!
But if the Catrice 24 h Made to Stay Makeup is? Let´s find out!

Despite the fact that multi-tasking has quite a bad rep these days, mom life often forces me to rely on it. The secret to multitask effectively is in my opinion to combine a passive with an active act.
Like put on a face mask while you vacuum. Or, one of my favorite tips: Apply a thick layer of handcream underneath your rubber gloves when doing the dishes.
Trust me, that is as close to a manicure as I get these days.
But how about a product that claims to do it all? Like the pixi Rose Flash Balm*, proclaimed moisturizer, face mask and primer all in one?
It is makeup? Is it skincare? Let´s ask the ingredient list!

February is a weird month for me. On one hand it is filled with birthday celebrations (read here), on the other hand it is a transitional month at it´s worst.
Lots of people complained about January dragging on, but at least January is proper winter! I get comfort from hot chocolate, warm blankets and dark lips, all the things that make winter worthwile. Once February arrives though, I get spring fever.
I want warm sun on my face, I want to loose the layers and I want light and airy makeup. But outside there is freezing cold, and, judging by the last few weeks, grey clouds and snow drizzle.
So no new makeup purchases, at least no spring makeup purchases, but new skincare. From shopping my stash mostly, but that is shopping after all!

I know I go on and on about how I am not into hearts and glitter and unicorns. I don´t even really like the color pink.
But sometimes something comes along that you technically shouldn´t enjoy based on experience, but still you do.
That happened to me when this gorgeous pixi box arrived at my door step. And no, I didn´t just enjoy it because I got send it for free! Not going to lie, that surely helps, but despite the pink and the pastel and the roses… It is so pretty!
Maybe it is the tiny (fully functional!) lock with the even tinier key, maybe it is the words written inside about skincare and inner beauty, I don´t know.
But I just can´t seem to throw it out. Enough about the box though, you are certainly here to hear about what was inside?

A few weeks ago I watched a You Tube tutorial.
Shocking news, I know, but do hear me out!
The tutorial itself was nothing extraordinary, one of these you have playing in the background while doing boring chores like folding laundry. But she said something that actually made me pause, rewind and repeat.
She said, quote: „… going to just use mascara, as I was surprised to find out how many of you don’t wear false lashes on a daily basis.“
Now each to their own, but I´d be surprised to find out that many women would actually wear false lashes on a regular. A quick look around revealed… None.
We do rely on mascara that promises lashes looking as if they were fake. Like essence The False Lashes mascara extreme
