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…

Instytutum Retin Oil – the problem with Instytutum skincare reviews

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and features gifted items (PR-Samples). Please read disclaimer. I have published quite a few Instytutum Skincare Reviews already, but while I love the brand, I need to get something off my chest: An online version of the ingredient list is incredibly hard to find! A complete one, that is, one that doesn’t highlight the “key ingredients” only (whatever that may mean anyway). The website is no help here, not many retailers carry the brand and it isn’t as widely known that I…

How to create a Spring Capsule Wardrobe (if you have zero fashion sense)

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Welcome to part one of my Spring Capsule Wardrobe journey. Today we are going to talk about preparation and planning, basically the first things you need to do if you want to create a capsule wardrobe.     And you know what? The most important thing you need to do is to actually start. Sounds obvious, but in my case it took around two years to finally take that step. Yes, you read that right: I first thought about…

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil – Babylonian confusion

Advertisement info: This blogpost uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. If you are a regular reader of my blog, and even more if you are subscribed to my You Tube channel, you will know that I am no native speaker. Most of the time that doesn’t lead to any difficulties. Not for me anyway, it is you that has to deal with my accent. But sometimes the difference between German and English gets really confusing. Take the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil, for example. I wanted to write an introduction…

Beauty Low Buy 2019 – March Update

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and features gifted items (PR-Samples). Please read disclaimer. Now that we reached the end of March, I am pretty chuffed that I managed to stick to what I started in the New Year: Going on a Beauty Low Buy for 2019. Yes, it might only be three months, and after a great January 2019 the February was kind of a very bad exception, but still, how many New Years Resolutions make it that far?     After all, it is the budget…

Monthly Recap March 2019

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.  Spring is here, my favorite season. And what a spring it has been so far. 18 degrees and sunshine, flowers and birds galore, then storm and rain just a few days later, with temperatures that made me layer up in my wool cardigans.     Good thing I haven’t put them away quite yet, in my attempt to create a Spring capsule wardrobe. I was tempted, I admit, as it was so warm the weekend I sifted through my…

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…
