essence #instaperfect Foundation Review

  This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. To be honest, I almost didn´t buy this foundation because of the name. I mean, #instaperfect? That sums up everything I do NOT stand for: the hashtag-life, Instagram makeup, even perfection isn´t something I can relate to.     But the claims… The siren song of words like matte, flawless and buildable coverage was strong. So Instagram Makeup aside, today I am here to show you how the essence #instaperfect foundation wears on mature and oily skin.

Monthly Recap – Blog Post Topics October 2018

This blog post contains affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please see disclaimer. October was the month that autumn well and truly arrived in Germany. Up until October 19th it was warm enough to leave the house without a jacket, even in the evenings, something that I only realized when on that day, October 19th, I actually felt a chill walking back to the car with Mr. Loca at 10 pm. Now Germany is not a cold country, but that was unusual.     As it was to be expected, the period…

Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Review and Tutorial

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I actually wanted to try Huda Beauty a while ago, when they released their Faux Filter Foundation (that still sits on my list of things to try). But when I went to get color matched, the Sephora sales person in Berlin was that rude and unhelpful I decided not to spend any money there and just leave the store.     That put me off the brand a little, but when I received the Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Palette as a GWP,…

Monthly Recap: August 2018

Times are busy, and I feel like they get busier every day. Catching up with my favorite blogs daily is something I haven´t been able to do in a long while, and as I figured you are probably in the same boat, I decided to introduce the Monthly Recap series. It is meant to be an overview of all the blog posts I have written, all the videos I have uploaded and a few extra informations thrown in for good measure. To make it easier to find what you are interested in I split…

The Ordinary Coverage Foundation – Confusion

This blogpost uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. While I was trying to write this introduction, I got sucked in to the black hole that is “The Ordinary Drama” time lines. As much as I claim I don´t care for drama online (and believe me, I don´t) it seems like once you start reading, you simply can´t stop. So much has happened since I shared my initial thoughts here, and it leaves me incredibly confused.     So how do I proceed? I guess I will continue with what I do best and…

Day to night makeup tutorial using affordable products

This blog post contains affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. I think it is well established by now that I don’t have much of a social life. But I do remember a time when I had, a life when a spontaneous invitation for after work drinks or even a date could happen. And I remember how hard it was to look fresh and glammed up with a ten hours work day under your belt.     I watched countless day to night makeup tutorials on You tube, but I…

The Ordinary Serum Foundation – Habits

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I know many a blogger out there started their blog to justify a spending habit that is borderline hoarding. And I am no exception! “I want to write about it!” is a common excuse when yet another red lipstick makes its way into my basket. (But then again, who blogs about a single lipstick anymore? I´ll buy the whole line!) Mr. Loca has long learned not to question the sheer amount of parcels appearing on our doorstep.     And while…

Everyday Spring Makeup tutorial – Peachy, pink and bronze

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer. One of the many reasons I don’t celebrate Valentine´s Day is that it is just a week after my birthday. And, to put it nicely, I am not always easy to please. Not that I demand a lot of presents or look at the money spend on me, but I do expect a gift to be carefully chosen and to come with a story that explains why this, and only this, was the thing my better half picked up…

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Oil Free

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Years of teenage and then adult acne have left me with a lot of discoloration, and even though my skin is now better than it ever was before, I tend to wear some kind of face base when I leave the house. Back in the days I would go for full coverage, most likely looking like I was about to step on stage, but nowadays I prefer a light hand, putting concealer to good use.     Just give me a natural…

Quick makeup for mothers

I often get asked why I wear make-up on a daily base. After all, I spend most of my days at home, looking after the Little Bean and typing away on my laptop. So apart from the postman stopping by, who should care? Well, it is simple. I do. Putting on make-up gets me started, the same way a quick shower and brushing my teeth does. I feel put together, ready to conquer the day, ready to get something done. Of course, I by no means put on a full…
