Happy Friday ladies,

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

the week is finally over and I wnated to share another Valentine´s Day themed post with you. I am a lipstick addict through and through and I think you know that by following me and reading my blog.

I have done several lipstick posts over the years and red always was my favorite color. So I think I don´t have to tell you twice that after I saw this gorgeous YSL lipstick I was totally sold. Aren´t the love sign and the little hearts the cutest?????

I got the red lipstick as it is and added the little heart cap – actually there are tons of different caps to put on your lipsticks. Step up the game and add a little pattern and glitter. 

The lipstick I am wearing is called Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in color 110 Help. It is a bright red with an orange undertone and so beautiful. The finish is mat and the texture so smooth. Doesn´t dry out your lips at all. I think the LOVE cap is limited so I would be quick to get it. I know that 36 Euro are super pricey for a lipstick but it definitely gives you that luxurious feel and also last for a long time (I am using my lipsticks way past the expiration date – just look if they are still ok). 

Another cute feature of the brand is that you can get different caps to change the look of your lipstick. It absolutely is and unnecessary almost frivolous item but it is so pretty.

Constantly wearing masks out in the public is so annoying when you are a lipstick lover but with the new FFP2 masks that are required to wear everywhere it got better. The shape is different and is not dipping into your lipstick.

Do you guys have plans for Valentine´s Day? Germany is going to be locked down until the 14th of Feburary (which will hopefully be the end).

Have a nice weekend. See you on Monday.

How exciting is it that the holiday season is upon us. Some of the best days of the year are going to be here soon and we might as well look our best cause there haven´t been enough chances to dress up this year.

With all the limited editions and tons of new stuff being released someone can certainly feel overwhelmed and lost in the holiday make-up collections. 

So best is to minimize here and have some great quality colors in a palette you will use over and over again. The Catrice x Kaviar Gauche pressed eyeshadow palette has them all. Matte soft colors to use as a base. High pigmented dramatic colors to add on your eyelid and beautiful glittery shades to add the holiday sparkle. Colors are ranging from soft nudes to sparkly red/burgundy shades and a silver finish.

The brand Catrice has been cooperating with Kaviar Gauche before and when these two meat great things are coming from it. The outside of the palette is made of super sparkly silver crystals and if you know me, you know that I need anything that sparkles this much.

Hopefully the Christmas holidays are not “cancelled” by the Coronavirus but to be honest no matter what it will be nice to get dolled up and celebrate even if you have to stay home.

Happy Thursday,

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

I can´t remember being more tired than today, ever. Emilia doesn´t sleep well these days. I think it must be a sleep regression or her next leap or another tooth or everything together. Looking back at these pictures I can´t believe how awake and fit I was this day.

Using fake lashes mostly requires a lash curler to make them look good and blend them in with your own lashes so after using my drug store lash curler for years (it was 4 bucks and holds up really well) I decided it was time to invest in a better piece. After reading Christina´s (from Fashion and Frills) lash post years ago I remined myself of the brand Kevin Aucoin and ordered one. 

To be honest I didn´t understand the rave about it at first but after the first time I used it I completely understood (also why it´s sold out most of the time). Let me tell you, if you are only sporadically using a lash curler this post probably won´t be for you cause the cheap ones do the job as well but if you are searching for some luxury this one will absolutely meet your needs.

The Kevin Aucoin lash curler is made of super light material and it is so smooth to use. You can definitely feel the better quality not only by holding it but also by using it.

In comparison I would say go for the premium version as 22 Euro aren´t that much and if you are using the lash curler daily whether for your own lashes or fake lashes it is definitely the better choice. 

Plus this would make an awesome stocking stuffer for a beauty loving gal.

Happy Monday you guys,

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

it is a very hard one today. Emilia hardly slept stretches of an hour last night so I am definitely very tired and only coffee and eye patches will get me through the day but somehow it is very fitting for this post because what to do when your eyes are so small from being awake ? I mean besides take a nap! Add a pair of big impressive lucious lashes and curl them up and suddenly you look wide awake although you are sleeping on the inside.

Wearing fake lashes has become a huge part of my make-up routine (not only because I am tired more often but also because I love how it looks and how quick it is done) and I have tried a ton of different styles over the years but always came back to my favorites. 

The best lash glue

Today I am sharing all about my favorite lashes, the brand, the cost, the size and anything else worth mentioning but first we gonna talk about the lash glue I am using.

The brand is called Fing´rs and they went out of business a few years ago. I have purchased the last ones in every drug store I found some and also the very last one from amazon. You could say I had quite the impressive stock but all good things must come to an end and so has my favorite glue and might I add that this is the best lash glue ever. Period.

I tried some different glues but ended up liking none of them. Whether they had a terrible chemical smell or my lashes started to come off on the edges and that is not very practical when you are out and about. At some point I became panic that I had to give up my beloved lashes. That was the point were I decided to frisk every last corner in the world wide web to get my former glue and after several disappointments I found an online shop in the UK who still carries the Fing´rs lash glue and I ordered the maximum amount of it. Yes it is this good and I am not the only crazy person who thinks this. In several online forums it is discussed as the best glue EVER. 

Lash glues I didn´t like, the Duo eyeslash adhessive – might be a good glue but the smell is unbearable. The Red Cherry lash glue – isn´t holding up very well so you will definitely loose one of your lashes after some time. The Ardell glue that come with the package – not vey good to apply so it smudges out on everyside and looks horrible.
