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…

New Pixi Eyeshadow Palettes Natural Beauty and Reflex Light – Review and Swatches

This blog post contains PR-Samples and uses affiliate links, so it classifies as advertisement. I was not paid to talk about the products. Please read disclaimer. I admit I filmed a video and needed to add a separate sequence at the end a week later that partly counteracted what I had said in the video.     Not very professional, eh? But in my defense, I wanted to get a review of the new Pixi Beauty Eyeshadow Palettes up quickly, and I knew I only had one spot for filming…

Why suffocate my feed with thoughts about heavy coverage? Why plant pictures…

Makeup Revolution London Redemption Iconic 3 – Why do I get bored so easily?

Advertisement information: This blog post uses affiliate links. I did not receive any money to write it. Please read disclaimer. I get bored easily. Not by doing something over and over again, I could happily spend my day in a fixed routine without even noticing. But if someone was to walk up to me and say: “You are happy? That´s fine. Because that is how it will stay forever more!”, I´d have an instant meltdown and run for the next plane. Why? I don’t know. Maybe because forever is a…

Battling a cold with … Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 15

In case you wondered what a must-have spring accessory for children at the age of one this year is, let me fill you in: A runny nose. Maybelline Fit Me Conealer in 15 (slightly battered and almost finished) Little Bean, being all fashionable, had to get one after all the kids at daycare sported theirs. And while the days are just fine, and toys and toddlers are a great distraction, the nights have been troubled. Waking up every two hours, crying because she can’t properly breath (which doesn’t improve congested…
