Happy Thursday you guys,

let´s talk about Spring a little today. I am personally not the biggest fan of Spring. I never was to be honest. The only season I love is Fall but since we have been home in light lockdown or full lockdown for over a year now I desperately need Spring as “new beginning” and it helps that our little girl´s birthday is the day after tomorrow.

A think I love is the fresh and lingering smell of Spring in the air. The winds are getting warmer and the trees and flowers are finally starting to get green and blossom.

Scents are a very personal thing. Not everyone loves another´s fragrance and vice versa. Scents come out differently on skin than on clothes and it even depends on which body part you put them.

The perfume I am sharing today ticks all the boxes and I found it by coincidence. I ordered the set including the matching shower gel back in November to use it as a stocking stuffer but ended up using it by myself because the scent is so so so good. I am not exagerating. I got so many compliments and my grandma wanted the same scent for her brithday.

Aqua Colonia practically is the young and improved version of the 4711 cologne. The scent I got is Grapefruit & Pink Pepper. It smells so good. Fruity and delicious, I just love it. All of the scents which are available are fruits mixed with a spice. 

Perfumes can be so pricey and this one is so affordable. The small size is under 30 Euro which is a great price. 

I also have the Lemongras & Nutmeg and Safran & Iris. All of the scents are supposed to have another feature. Mine are calming, refreshing and euphorizing.

Tomorrow is going to be a huge prepping day for Emilia´s first birthday. We are making a balloon arch and I have never done that before so wish me luck.

Happy Monday to all of my beautfiul readers,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I wanted to talk about about a beauty product today which has had the biggest hype for the longest time and I know I might be late to the game but I had my ups and downs with it and wanted to make sure to try everything before sharing an honest review with you guys. The product I am talking about is the Shape Tape concealer from Tarte.

What is the Shape Tape?

The Shape Tape is a concealer by Tarte. It is cruel free, dermatology tested, waterproof with 16 hour wear and so much more. It is 27 Euro which is much for a concealer but I was curious cause so many people raved about it – a lot.

Coverage

The coverage of the product is amazing. I am shade 12 N fair neutral and it fit´s my skin perfectly. Makes the areas I apply it to appear a lot lighter but doesn´t look excessive light. A little goes a long way too which is always great for expensive make-up products.

Longevity

So now this is the part that is not convincing myself. I have tried everything. Applying the concealer on its own, with facial oil, with face cream, with a sponge and a brush and of course with fingers, under and over my foundation but I have never been happy. After some time it is getting REALLY dry and looking so cakey plus it is somehow gathering in the fine line under my eyes. I hate it when my make-up does this and nothing won´t work either. 

Conclusion

To be honest I think it is a great product and I wanted to make it work so bad but it is just not happening for me. Maybe it is my foundation or my skin I really can´t figure it out.

Have you been using the Shape Tape? I would love to know what you think about it!!

With Valentine´s Day right around the corner everything seems to be red and pink so how about a much more moody and dramatic eyeshadow look ?! I got the Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow palette for my birthday and have been playing with it ever since. The shadows are so smooth and highly pigmented that is truly something I love. There are plenty of glittery blush hues, nudes that match everything and mysterious mauve hues.

I am no pro in make-up. I am learning by the day and love to try out new products to see how they work for me. 

The shades I used are:

Crease – Burn

Under Eye Line – Angel Fire

Inner Eye – Bribe

Upper Eye – Blur

Highlighting – Angel Fire 

In terms of brushes I use the ones I can find in the moment I need them cause somehow they always disappear but for brands I love to use Mikasa and Real Techniques.

We are not going out for Valentine´s Day cause everything will be still closed so I would love to know what you guys are doing? Do you even like Valentine´s Day? I have heard very different opinions throughout the years.

Going to share an adorable kids idea tomorrow to make their Valentine´s Day even sweeter.

5 Red Drug Store Lipstick for Valentine´s Day under 10 Euro…

….

Happy Hump Day you guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag 

Valentine´s Day is next week and I can not believe that we can´t go to dinner this year cause all of the restraurants will still be closed. But we can still enjoy ourselves at home am I right? With plenty of take-out and all of the cheesy and romantic movies Netflix has to offer. You bet I will definitely wear a red lip with my sweatpants 😉 But before we go into further details about the shades I have picked for today´s blog post – have you seen my feet. I am wearing heels in this post. I am missing my dear heels so much. There is rarely an opportunity for me to wear them anymore. On some days I open their closet and look at all of them and talk to them so they won´t feel lonely. #crazyshoelady over here but don´t tell anybody 😉

Anyways who wants to read all about the red lipsticks this post includes. Me, me, me…  okay let´s start.
