Avon mark Big & Extreme Mascara

This blogpost contains PR-Samples and may use affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Mascara reviews. I haven’t done them in a while. In fact, the last one I did was on IGTV (Anyone remember that platform? It seems only brands upload teasers of their new releases there anymore.)     Kind of strange, when you think of it, as mascara is the makeup item I use every day and is the one that I replace most frequently. I might not be worried too much about expiration dates in my other face…

Best of Beauty 2018 – My skincare and makeup favorites

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. When I wrote my post on „How to accept failure“, I got a ton of lovely comments telling me to focus on all the things I had achieved in 2018 instead of dwelling on what hadn´t worked as planned.     Great advice indeed, so let´s put things into perspective and see what amazing new beauty items I discovered in 2018 because of blogging. I mean, would I really slather so much stuff on my face, constantly switching to…

THE INKEY LIST Retinol – New beginnings

This blogpost uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.   The first review of the year feels a little like the first snow. Everything looks different, feels different, and you are suddenly very conscious about the footprints you are going to leave.     Well, after the first hours of winter wonderland everything will turn into the same soggy mess it was before, slightly grey, really wet and clammy. At least this is true for German first snow, so I guess it will be true for this German Beauty Blog as…

Monthly Recap – Blog Post Topics December 2018

And just like that, another month has passed, and with this, 2018 comes to an end. Did it drag on? Did it fly by? I have heard both. But I am not here today to reflect on the year that passed, no. I want to talk about the month that ends today, my hectic and sugar filled December.     Although maybe hectic isn´t the right word (sugar filled is, no denying that). Maybe eventful is more fitting, given that I thoroughly enjoyed every event I attended, Christmas related or…

How to accept failure – 5 tips to move on

Soon they will be everywhere again – solutions, goals, whatever you call them. The clock strikes midnight, fireworks go off and everything feels shiny and new. This will be the year you finally quit smoking, the year you will get the well-deserved pay raise, the year you find your calling and the love of your life. Anything is possible when the New Year comes!     But how about now, with the old year coming to an end? How about the day you sit down to reflect on what you…

THE INKEY LIST Q10 – Understatement

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I admit, most company claims make me roll my eyes to the back of my head. Products allegedly shaving years of your face, singlehandedly tightening the skin around your jaw line so you look like your teenage self while transforming your undereyes from “Tired mom on a Monday” to “Bombshell on a tropical vacation” – I have seen it all.     What I haven´t seen that often though is a product that comes with reasonable claims that are, actually, an understatement! Like,…

Glam Holiday Makeup Tutorial for mature skin

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I love a glamorous makeup look as much as the next beauty blogger, but even if I´d say I am wearing quite a lot of makeup compared to other women around me, I can´t help but feel a little intimidated by the Full Glam Holiday Makeup Tutorials I have seen recently.     Glitter, red lips, I am down for that (in fact I want to be buried with my favorite red lipstick, just in case you actually CAN take things…

My One 24 h Anti-Aging System – AD

Advertisment: This blog post contains paid for content. All opinions are my own. Anzeige: Dieser Blogpost enthält Werbung. Meine Meinung wurde dadurch nicht beeinflusst. We all know I love trying new skincare brands, so when I got the opportunity to work with the German skincare brand “My One” by Dr. Klein on the release of their new My One 24 h Anti-Aging System, I jumped at the chance.     This blog post will give you an overview over the products, prices and claims, it is not an in-depth review…

THE INKEY LIST Collagen Serum – Names

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Unicorn tears – if a brand decides to name their products like that, they lost me as a customer for sure. I prefer a less romantic, more to the point approach, which is why I get along so very well with The Ordinary products: The name is what is inside the bottle. Fancy? No. But easy to work with for sure!     I recently learned the hard way though that seemingly straight forward names can be misleading! You see, when I…

Winter skincare tips – How to get glowing skin in winter

This blog post may contain affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. After what seems to have been the shortest fall in history, the cold and harsh winds are upon us. Cold and harsh are of course widely exaggerated if I compare my comfortable home in Heidelberg, Germany to where my brother in law lives, up North in Norway, but it is still cold enough for my skin to need special treatment.     So while I take care of body and soul with cozy knits and hot chocolate (a…
