Lancome Definicils Mascara – Review with history

Advertisement info: This blog uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   For a few years, the high end mascara I´d constantly wear was Lancôme Hypnose, solely bought because of its name. Why? The story behind that came to my mind while writing this Lancome Definicils Review, so let me share it. Back in school and university I never had the money to splurge on makeup. I´d love to claim this was because all my money went into my education, but that would be…

Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Let me start of my series of in depth murad reviews with the one that is most confusing: The Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield. What confuses me about it? I don´t know which category to put it in. Is it a sunscreen or is it a primer? Is it makeup or is it skincare? We will come to that, and we will of course answer the most important question…

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…

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…

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…

Emile Cordon Miracle Lip Balm – Luxury

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and features gifted items (PR-Samples). Please read disclaimer. In times where minimalism rules and we (rightly!) ask ourselves if our current culture of consumerism is really the way we want to continue on, it can be tough to write a beauty blog. It is a constant battle between being mindful with my purchases (read about my Low Buy 2019, for example) and allowing myself little luxuries that I don’t need need, but enjoy nonetheless. Like the Emile Cordon Miracle Lip Balm I…

Wearable Makeup Trends 2019 – Graphic Colored Eyeliner

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and contains products I received via PR, marked by an *. I was not paid to write this blog post/film the video. Please read disclaimer. I am the first one to put up my hand and admit that the previous video in the series „Wearable Makeup Trends 2019“ was far from being an actual challenge.  Soft eyes, red lips – I wear that any given day, no matter if it is on trend or not. So for today’s look, I figured I´d…

Quick and easy everyday makeup for winter 2019

This blog post uses affiliate links and contains *PR-Samples, so it qualifies as advertisement. Please read disclaimer. For me winter in terms of makeup starts when Christmas is over – Holiday makeup is a whole category of its own. (Although it has similarities – see here) So when January came, I sat down and rummaged through my stash to rediscover products I used to love, but that somehow got pushed aside for other stuff. Because, as I said here, I am guilty of abandoning my favorites for things that actually…

Avon Anew Platinum Instant Eye Smoother – Red Carpet

This blog post contains affiliate links and PR-Samples, so is marked as advertisement, although I was not paid. Please read disclaimer. It doesn´t happen that often these days that I need to watch a tutorial on how to apply a skincare product. I mean, not to tout my own horn here, but there isn´t much in terms of skincare that I am unfamiliar with. I have experimented with acids and retinol, used multitasking as well as elaborate 10 step routines, but I admit I was a little at loss when…
