New In Beauty April 2018: pixi, Caudalie and more

This blogpost contains affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer.   Back when I first started getting into makeup, I would often raid my mothers stash.

Favorite Face of … October

If you are not familiar with the “Favorite Face of …” series, click here for a little introduction. Short story even shorter, it is the makeup that I wore most during that month, featuring the favorite (as in most used) makeup products. Many of you will know by now that I am usually not wearing much makeup when working. But as I am home at the moment (read here why), I was able to go all out and enjoy fall makeup at its finest.
