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…

Lancôme Monsieur Big mascara – Audience in mind

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer Of course I have watched Sex and the City. I’ve watched all episodes, I’ve watched the first movie. I even went back and watched the second movie, even though the first one was pretty disappointing. So I get what Lancôme is doing here, both with naming and with description. Monsieur Big. “You’ll know he’s the one at first stroke”. They obviously want us to think of Carrie Bradshaw and her somewhat questionable choice of men.     But I cannot…

Inspired by Lancome Summer Swing 2017 Collection

If you are not familiar with the “Inspired by…” series, click here for an explanation. But short story even shorter, each month I choose a seasonal ad and try to recreate the models look with colors I already own. Dressing up and awkward posing included! I guess we all have a picture of ourselves in our head that not necessarily matches reality. For me, that is the Boho chick I want to be every summer. The one that wears maxi skirts, turquoise bracelets and tousled waves with random braids.  …

Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara – Language of the fan

Random fact about my life: I love Fantasy and historic stuff. Not only books, but fashion and lifestyle as well. Don’t get me wrong, I am perfectly happy to live in 2016 and wouldn’t want to give up female rights and health care for staying in a cold castle and most likely die by the age of 40, but there were some fascinating things around back then.   Did you know that there was a “language of the fan”? A series of ways you could hold, flap, open or close your fan and thus transport a…

Inspired by … Dior Glowing Gardens Spring 2016

If you are not familiar with the “Inspired by…” series, click here for an explanation. But short story even shorter, each month I choose a seasonal ad and try to recreate the models look with colors I already own. Dressing up and awkward posing included!   This months installment is the Dior Glowing Gardens Collection, which stood out to me due to the fact that the model was wearing yellow eyeshadow, paired with purple. To be honest, I didn’t own a yellow eyeshadow and don’t think it is a color…

Soft smokey eye tutorial – Favorite Face of December 2015

If you have been around for a while now, you may have gotten used to my “Favorite Face of…” series. Of course I cant tell whether you are bored out of your mind or looking forward to my monthly makeup ramble, but I have been meaning to keep it up.   Now I have started this month with a yearly favorites, so the “Favorite Face of…” is a little late and probably does no longer count as “December Favorites”, which is why I named it “Tutorial” for the upload on…

Inspired by … Lancome French Innocence Collection Spring 2015

If you are not familiar with the “Inspired by…”-series, click here. Short story even shorter, I try to recreate the makeup worn by a model in the ad for a seasonal campaign with the makeup I already own. This time I chose Lancome´s French Innocence Collection. Paris and France really have a moment this spring. Not that I am complaining, I love France and going to Paris in spring (and eating my body weight in macarons) is something I would totally do. Lancome French Innocence Spring 2015 What drew me…

Reactivating the youth of my skin? Lancomes Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate

As I am quite into serums (if you couldn’t tell already from my previous raves here and here), I was delighted when I got a generous sample size of Lancomes Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate with a recent purchase. I mean, “Youth Activating”, I didn’t have to read any further to start daydreaming about my 35 year old self, asked for the ID while buying booze. Not that I buy alcohol almost ever, but maybe I would if I got asked my age more frequently. It is the little things…
