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 in the next two weeks. And this spot happened to be about two hours after I received Natural Beauty and Reflex Lights in the mail.

So I opened the parcel, took pictures (first things first, we all need a pristine shot!) and then sat down to film.

And after filming, I took my time to play with Natural Beauty and Reflex Light. And had to admit that I was, indeed, wrong in my first impressions.

Avon mark Big & Extreme Mascara

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 paint, but as a contact lens wearer mascara that has been open too long makes me uneasy – ain´t nobody got time for an eye infection!

If I am honest, the only reason is that I find mascara pictures incredibly hard to take. No matter how long I try, study the angles and admire the pristine pictures on other blogs, my attempts turn out dark, blurry or odd. Time to get practicing, I guess, so I can share more mascara reviews with you in the time to come!

First for 2019? Avon mark Big & Extreme mascara.

September Empties – Taking out the trash 18

This blog post contains affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer.

I promise this is the last time you need to sit with me through sound issues.

See, in an attempt to be the most efficient I could be I bulk filmed a few videos. It was only when I got down to editing, quite some time later, that I realized the sound was completely messed up.

Take a look at my trash bin

 

In all four videos. And as per usual I was so late with editing, I simply couldn’t refilm them! Or, in case of this September  Empties video, I had thrown out all the stuff already.

Ah, now you know my dirty secret: I actually filmed my September Empties back in July! What can I say, I need content like that for when I am too busy holidaying in France (and probably shopping for skincare) to create something new.

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 focus on the product at hand, the The Ordinary Coverage foundation and no longer think about the time wasted following link after link in an attempt to make sense to what ultimately may not have one.
