Sorry for going live without any written content. I do have some issues with the saving these days. I write my texts and add my links and also change the picture size but somehow it doesn´t save and I end up posting the draft. Need to figure out what is going wrong here.
But with not further ado I am sharing the latest beauty products I have gotten in. I love to try new things others have purchases and also wandering through the beauty department and finding new interesting products.
New Beauty Prodcuts To Try
Airspun powder // The best smelling powder I have ever used. This is the first check here. The second check is that it doesn´t look cakey at all after applying plus it is super lightweight. Another great fact is that it stays matte for a good 8 hours and that is awesome with my oily skin. The third check would be the price. It is under 15 Euro which makes it a fantastic product, also the pan is huge and filled with a ton of powder so this will last a long time.
Catrice HD Baking & Setting Powder // Before the Airspun face powder I have used this setting powder in my make-up routine and I also liked it a lot. It is only available in one color fits all but since I am pretty pale year round it fits my skin tone perfectly. It stays matte quite the long time which is really important if you have oily skin. Overall it is a great prodcut / price ratio.
Catrice 1 Minute Face Perfector // Actually have found the 1 minute face perfector through Emily Gemma´s blog and was dying to try it. It evens out every bump on your skin nicely and although the color looks a little dark in the beginning it changes to your actual skin tone after it set. A great primer for a less money. I have been really impressed with the Catrice products lately as the varitey and also the quality increases all the time.
Ritual of Sakura Body Cream // One of the best smelling body procuts out there on the market. In fact all of the Rituals products are great. This is my favorite scent of all their lines. The body creme is a little more on the pricier side but it is so long lasting and nourishing for the skin and also if you want to you can reuse it and rebuy the pan.
Toni & Guy Sky High Volume Dry Shampoo // In my opinion the best volume spray I have found so far. It is reasonable priced and also holds up my hair very well. The smell is great and the fact that it doubles as a dry shampoo and refreshes your hair while holding it up is just another great point on the check list for a great volume spray. It costs 15 Euro and since it has been sold out once I now keep a back-up in my bathroom cabinet.
Ouai Texturizing Hair Spray // Got this one as the Toni & Guy prodcut was sold out and to be honest it doesn´t do anything for my hair. It cost 25 Euro and using it doesn´t make a difference at all so this was a total waste.
Garnier Ambre Solaire Natural Bronzer // The first self tanner I have ever used and so far I am pretty happy with it. I had some problems applying it the first time but the second time it looked way more even. Still finding out if it is buildable. Since the mousse it without any color it is a little hard to apply as you can´t see where you have already been but the smell has been a real delight. I heard that some self tanner have a real ugly smell with them but not this one. The price is fine for under 10 Euro. I am going to write a post only on self tanning when I am ready so stay tuned.
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Sun // I have been sneaking around this perfume since last summer and finally pulled the trigger on it since I was afraid it will go out of the market some time soon. The smell is amazing. I really don´t like a lot of perfumes cause when they are to sweet I get a bad headache. The scent of the Light Blue Sun is super light which fits the light breeze on a boat as well as the sunset at a beach club. It is on the pricier side as 25 ml are over 50 Euro but if you do like the scent I would say get it cause if you only use in the summer it will last as a little goes a long way.
L´Oréal Color Riche Ultra Matte Free the Nudes in color No Cage (a burnt brown shade) and No Doubts (a beige shade with a warm finish) // My love for lipsticks is still going strong although with all the mask wearing outside wearing a lipstick has become a little pointless I am not giving up on my most important beauty prodcut cause I believe there comes a time for all of our bright lipsticks after Corona. For the Color Riche lipsticks there is not much to add. I love them and used them for year, own several pieces of other limited collections and am always looking forward to get new colors.
it is a holiday over here in Germany and boy it has been the most boring day ever. In normal times I would love to have a holiday but since we are staying home due to the Coronavirus every day is the same and today had been especially bad. It is rainy and cold outside and so we couldn´t do anything outside although I got a lot of shots done I still feel blah. But I guess some days are rather fun than others.
So let´s talk about this whole #socialdistancing thing. We are home all the time and there are so many things we can get accomplished, we never had any time before and that is great. Also being around the people you love all the time is a huge blessing (at least for us over here) but being together all the time can be hard on some couples too so you have to find some time for yourself.
Everyone needs some downtime alone even if it is just a short shower but having some time to yourself helps to keep your mood in a good place.
It really depends on what your preferences are. Having a glass of wine while reading your favorite magazine marks an hour well used. Or if you like organizing and it makes you feel good go and clean out a closet/drawer etc. I personally enjoy that a lot and I feel much more accomplished and happier after.
Times are hard at the moment with all the restrictians and lockdowns but if you want to stay happy while you have to stay at home its the little things that make your day.
and welcome back. I am glad to be back myself today. Yesterday´s post was the last one of my pre-written blog posts I prepared for my leave.
It is great to be back with fresh and actual new content with all that´s going on in the world and not being able to take pictures at the “good” locations but somehow we made it happen on our walks to shot a couple of looks I am starting to post tomorrow.
For today´s topic I am sharing my current and almost daily make-up routine. Time became pretty precious since the baby is here and I am sure it gets even worse when my husband goes back to work next week.
Everything I am using is also in my holy grail make-up post minus the lipstick.
Another great mom gadget (or in general for less time and bad hair days) is a cute headband. Immediately creates a put together look and you have one less thing to worry about when you are running low on time.
All the products I have used for this look:
L´Oréal Infallible Full Wear Concealer in color Fawn
Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation
Sephora Collection Matte Powder Foundation in color Petal
FYI: I prepared this blog post before our baby girl arrived so there would still be fresh content on the blog while I am taking a break from blogging. That’s why you’ll still see me pregnant or referencing my pregnancy in some upcoming blog posts!
If you have been a longtime reader you know how much I love beauty products especially lipsticks. No one has probably seen me going outside with no color on my lips ever. I have a huge spectrum of different colors but my most worn and loved colors are all shades of orange and for this blog post selected pink hues.
I am sharing a variety of lipsticks and also lip stains in this blog post. All the color information are under the picture the lipstick is presented above. Pink shades are awesome for Spring and Summer. A pink color on your lips looks super fresh and adds that wanted pop of color after a dreary and gloomy long winter right onto your lips.
Pink in general fits almost any skin tone. If you want to make sure stay on the cooler side of pink as this fits most and also makes your teeth look whiter. So you win on both sides.
All the shades I have been sharing are longtime favorites of mine and I can only recommend them. They range between 6 and 22 Euros and are all still available.
