Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Let me start of my series of in depth murad reviews with the one that is most confusing: The Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield. What confuses me about it? I don´t know which category to put it in. Is it a sunscreen or is it a primer? Is it makeup or is it skincare? We will come to that, and we will of course answer the most important question…

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer Review – The Search

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. The perfect foundation, the perfect mascara, the perfect concealer. Is the hunt ever truly over? You don´t need to answer that. The fact that you stopped by here for a NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer Review gives away that you, just like me, are still searching.     Of course perfection means different things for all of us (no, don´t go, I am not going to drift off into metaphysical spheres here!). I…

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…

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…

Makeup Revolution London Redemption Iconic 3 – Why do I get bored so easily?

Advertisement information: This blog post uses affiliate links. I did not receive any money to write it. Please read disclaimer. I get bored easily. Not by doing something over and over again, I could happily spend my day in a fixed routine without even noticing. But if someone was to walk up to me and say: “You are happy? That´s fine. Because that is how it will stay forever more!”, I´d have an instant meltdown and run for the next plane. Why? I don’t know. Maybe because forever is a…

Battling a cold with … Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 15

In case you wondered what a must-have spring accessory for children at the age of one this year is, let me fill you in: A runny nose. Maybelline Fit Me Conealer in 15 (slightly battered and almost finished) Little Bean, being all fashionable, had to get one after all the kids at daycare sported theirs. And while the days are just fine, and toys and toddlers are a great distraction, the nights have been troubled. Waking up every two hours, crying because she can’t properly breath (which doesn’t improve congested…

L Oreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara – Creepy names

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. So, what kind of lashes do you expect on a butterfly? I think, when naming their mascara, L Oreal had lashes like a butterflies wing in mind. But seriously, am I the only one thinking about butterfly legs, black and thin and, well, insectoid?     In case you are wondering what the heck I am talking about, the L Oréal Paris False Lash Flutter Mascara (with cocoon fibers and a butterfly brush) is called “Voluminous Butterfly Mascara” in…

My top three summer lip colors

Now it is no secret that I love a good lipstick. If you have seen my collection (I am currently trying to work my way through it on Instagram @LindaLibraLoca), you’ll know that I have just about every color you could think of. Reds will always be my favorites, but you’ll find a fair share of nudes and MLBB shades in my drawers as well that I reach for on work days. In the summer though, when even I get a little bit tanned, I tend to go for more…
