Happy Monday,

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

it definitely is a tough one today. Emilia didn´t sleep very well so I needed all the coffee and some ice rolling today. The ice roller is such a great and inexpensive tool and there are days in everyone´s life I am sure you´ll need one. I got mine a few years a go after Hayley from Blondie in the City raved about it a lot and I have never needed it more since I had Emilia. I mean she mostly is a good sleeper but some days are just jinxed.

So…

What are the benefits of ice rolling

Ice rolling has several benefits that shouldn´t be missed because they are so easy to achive plus the ice roller is only about 10 Euro and definitely brings great things with it. So here are the awesome benefits I was talking about:

 – ice rolling reduces swelling (much needed after hard nights)

 – boosts circulation which is helping to restore cells

 – can instantly reduce redness

 – can shrink the size of your pores

 – can calm inflammation

 – helps to keep my headache at a minimum (at least for me but it is worth a try if you get really strong migraines)

I definitely use it a lot these days. I keep it in my fridge cause it gets uncomfortably cold in the freezer plus it doesn´t roll as smooth when the plastic gets to cold. 

Hopefully we get more sleep tonight, so see you tomorrow.

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!!

….

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.

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.
