I have been waiting to get my hands on the Kylie Cosmetics lip kits for a long time and when they finally launched in Germany I was too late and all the colors had sold out already so I waited and waited and finally they restocked. You can imagine my excitement plus I got two real Fall colors – Sweater Weather and Autumn!!! How cool is this.
Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit Review
I know the hype about the prodcut and I am aware that a lot of it is about the famous family name but to be honest I was positively surprised how great they are.
The two colors I got are Sweater Weather and Autumn. Both liquid lipsticks have a mat finish and are highly pigmented. I was very pleased with Autumn. The liner and the gloss are exactly the same color and blend in nicely, unfortunately the lip liner of Sweater Weather is a total different shade. I am not sure if they got mixed up or not but they do not match at all.
For the durability they are both amazing and hold up very well the whole day but you have to have hydrated lips before applying. It won´t hold as long with chopped or dry lips plus it looks disgusting.
There are 21 colors available and the set is around 30 Euro including the lip liner and the liquid lipstick. I am very pleased with the product and overall it is very good. Yes it is pricey but I would compare it to the Bare Minerals liquid lipsticks and they cost about the same.
Also I really really really love all things lipsticks so I am always happy to find and try a new product.
I am in absolute and total Fall mood around here (going to start decorate soon) but I also know that many of you are still travelling or have plans for Summer travel so I wanted to share some of my absolute favorite travel cases I have used for years and hopefully are going to use years to come.
There is one for every type of traveller whether you are chaotic or super organized. In my opinion always knowing where everything is in your suit case saves time and anger. Trust me!!
Best of make-up / toiletry bags…
The Chaotic Make-Up Bag – This is a drawstring make-up bag from the Flat Lay Co. and the idea behind it is marvellous. You just throw all of your make-up in it together and pull on the string and all of your products are packed and ready to go. This saves a lot of time and you know where everything is at all times but it isn´t the best method to find things quick. Although all of the pattern the company offers are super cute which is very intruiging. You can get palm print, leopard print, little lightnings, gingham, velvet, satin – you get it right?! Most of them are to find on Asos.
The Clear Make-Up Bag – If you want to have an overview at all times and know exactly where the one thing is you are searching for even before you open the zipper this is the perfect item for you. Mine is from Guess but I also have the Luxe Beauty Case from the Styled Collection which is also clear and love them both.
The Two-Storey Vanity Case – It is an organization loving gals dream. It has two stories which means two big compartments. I got this from River Island years ago and it holds so much make-up – perfect for a longer trip. The top compartment is great for long, flat items to lay like lip liner, brushes, concealer, mascara and in the bottom compartment can things be stored like foundation, powder, your face and eye cream pods.
The most hyped make-up bag – I have gotten this one a few years ago, let´s say about three or four and it was the most hyped make-up bag I have ever seen. Every blogger and her mother was promoting it and it has been a top seller for many of us for month and to be honest I can see why. I has a very clean but chic look, it is very sturdy, has many great compartments inside you can customize for you own needs and is under 25 Euro. I mean there isn´t much more to say in my opinion. Whether you get this one for yourself or you gift it a friend/family member there will be no regret. It is sold on amazon and the exact one I have is sold here.
The personlized train case – Where are all my monogram friends at!! I got this adorable train case customized from etsy for our honeymoon and have used it a ton ever since. Personally a monogramed piece is the best thing you can get and I know there are two sides. You either love it or hate it right but if you are ever looking for a special piece etsy is the place to be.
The space-saving make-up bag– It really is a huge space saver when you have booked a small room. You can literally hang it anywhere and it won´t take up closet space, luggage space or counter space while you are staying at your destination and it can also be folded and put back into your weekender / suit case as well but in my experience it doesn´t hold a lot. I have way to many things with me which wouldn´t fit in there make-up wise BUT it would be a great bag for shower gels, soaps, razor etc. cause you could hang it on the opposite side of your shower and have access to everything you could possibly need in there. I got it from amazon (prime available as well as lots of different colors).
the temperatures in Europe are increasing everywhere until the point where people can´t take it anymore but it is still moderate in Germany so I know the things I am sharing today probably won´t work when you are above 35 degrees but I wanted to talk to you about it anyway.
5 Things to beat the Summer Heat
Kiehl´s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense // I put this under my make-up every morning. It has SPF 50 and an Anti Pollution Filter which makes this a huge necessity in my Summer make-up routine. The face cream is super lightweight and not sticky at all. I love that it has a very light scent and is abosorbed by the skin very quickly. Always use sunscreen in the Summer, it is number one to prevent your skin from aging.
Origins Ginzing Energy-Boosting Treatment Lotion Mist // Definitely was on the hunt for something else when I found this mist and let me tell you – best choice to put it into my cart. It smells amazing. It is supposed to be energizing and hydrating. The mist is oil free and dries immediately. I use it on especially hot days and even if the smell is not energizing is still is refreshing cause the mist is really cool.
Max Factor Lasting Performance Touch-Proof Foundation // I have been using this foundation for the third year in the Summer now and still love it. I am shade 106 Natural Beige which is pretty light but to be honest I don´t tan a lot so it´s perfect. It definitely is touch-proof and more sweatproof than the the Strong foundation I have tried.
essence all about matt oil control paper // These are my absolutely musts in Summer time. Having high humidity outside my skin will get oily very quickly and the oil control papers from essence are amazing. Super affordable, don´t take away any of your make-up. I have been using these for years and they never dissapoint.
L´Oréal Paris Color Riche Shine // Color in the pictures are 112 Only in Paris and 245 High on Craze but I own three or four more of these. Of course this post had to include a lipstick, I mean it wouldn´t be written by me if there wasn´t at least one on the list. So why do I love the Color Riche Shine for Summer. The colors have an amazing shine and hydration to your lips. They aren´t as longlasting as a matte lipstick but I do love them. The subtle shimmer and shine is what makes them the perfect everday Summer lipstick.
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.
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.
