Recent beauty buys including the SMILE lipsticks from L´Oréal x Isabel Marant…..


Good morning my beauty loving friends,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
I really love browsing through the beauty sections of drug stores and see what´s new (or new to me, sometimes I miss a few things or don´t get it until it is super hyped and I want to know why). Trying these things out on my free Fridays is so much fun. I make myself a giant cup of coffee and incorporate the new beauty products into my make-up routine.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer // I first saw this product on Chronicles of Frivolty and gave it a try cause I don´t have a specified under eye concealer, I just use my face concealer for this region too and the dark shades mostly get through later in the afternoon or even after lunchtime. It is no full coverage product and I don´t think it is buildable but it works for me. I only add some powder on top to make it matt and voila. Fresh and awake looking eyes. Who doesn´t want that??
Maybelline Tattoo Brow Waterproof Eyebrow Gel  // This is by far the best eyebrow gel I have ever tried. It is awesome. Super soft to apply. The color fits perfect (I have light blonde) and it stays, also cause of the gel texture there are no hairs acting weird and do what they want. They are like glued to your brow. Definitely gonna buy this again.
L’oréal Voluminous Lash Extatic // The Lash Paradise mascara is supposed to give you lenght and volume and I think it totally does. I am super fine with it being a drug store mascara. It does the work and I am happy but not satisfied. In my opinion there is nothing better than the essence lash princess mascara (drug store). Maybe it is the brush or the texture of the product. Although I would buy and use it again if the other one is sold out which happens very often.
NARS Mini Blush & Bronzer Duo  // The Nars blushes had been on my wish list for a long time now. I wanted to try out the color Orgasm but it was always sold out so you could probably imagine how happy I was when I found the blush/bronzer set at a Sephora in Spain. I totally love the pink blush. It is super soft to apply and creates such a nice and beautiful rose hue on my cheeks. Unfortunately I am not wearing pink that much but it has definitely increased. I do think it is a great duo for trying out their different itmes and not spending a fortune on buying two normal sized products.
DKNY Women perfume // I wanted this perfume for a long time but every time I went to purchase a new one I totally forgot about it until they had a set with a matching body lotion in a metallic shimmering box and it caught my eye. It is a fresh fragrance which is perfect for me to use when I had or get a migraine or overall have a bad head which happens from time to time. And also it doesn´t break the bank. I think the flask was only 25 Euro.
L’Oréal Paris X Isabel Marant Women’s Lipstick in color Palaid Royal Field // I have to admit I wasn´t as excited for this collaboration with Isabel Marant as I was with Balmain (read my post here). Also since I love red lipsticks there are so many shades I already have that I decided to take at least one nudish color but I also went with two awesome red shades (just can´t help it!!). Palais Royal Field is a classic and bright red and would make – in my opinon – the perfect Christmas Red. It is made of the typical L´Oréal quality so it goes on smooth, stays and has their typical scent. A good and cheap alternative to MAC or Bobbi Brown lipsticks.

The second red lipstick I got is called La Butte Marshall and I have worn it about 10 times since I got it. As much as I love a vibrant red shade I adore a darker red with a bluish undertone. Perfect for fall and winter and oh so chic.
And for the last one I finally got myself a nude shade. The color is called La Seine Shadow and I would say it has a rosy apricot undertone. I think it is really beautiful but it doesn´t show too much on my lips since they are so pigmented. Probably gonna try it again by putting some foundation underneath to even out the color.
That´s it for now. I really love trying out new products. These are from the drug store and also from the high-end retailer but most of the time I get lots of drug store stuff since they carry so many different brands and products. And now is finally the time where they also have Christmas decor and candles and cards and so on…. So I could spend half a day in there. 
Are there any makeup products you are interested in and want me try out?
Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
