The Inkey List Skin Care – Complete Overview

Advertisement information: This blog post uses affiliate links. I did not receive any money to write it and I bought all items myself. Please read disclaimer.   If you have been around here for a while now, you´ll know that The Inkey List has featured heavily on this blog already. Shortly after they launched last summer I took advantage of the fact that they started with 15 products under 10 £ and purchased everything that seemed fitting for my skin type.     There were a few new releases since…

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…

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…

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…

Pixi skincare review – The pixi Rose-Infused Skintreats Collection

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and talks about products I was gifted via PR. I was not paid to write this blog post/film the video. Please read disclaimer. I admit then when the package with the pixi rose collection arrived at my door step, I was the most excited about the bag it came in. Yes, you heard that right: Nine pixi beauty items to talk about, and yours truly is gushing about the bag. In my defense though, the limited edition Rose Travel Bag (sadly no…

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…

Bakuchiol vs Retinol – Which one is best for you?

This blog post uses affiliate links, so it qualifies as advertisement. Please read disclaimer. Have you heard about the latest, greatest skincare ingredient? Bio-Retinol, the natural alternative to retinol, the vegan retinol, the plant based retinol, the natural retinol – all different names for one thing: Bakuchiol.     It isn’t actually as new as people will make you believe (isn’t that always how the story goes? The Omorovicza Miracle Facial Oil has been using it for a long time), but a recent study on the effects and side effects…

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…

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…

Beauty Empties February 2019

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. A few days ago I had a conversation with Lindsey (who blogs at Sustainably Savvy about green beauty and her zero waste journey) about the “right amount” of products to include into a Beauty Empties video. I mean, you basically need to get people interested in you talking about trash, that is hard work!     On top of that you don´t want to show too many products – I mean, I love watching empties, but if I see the video…
