Good morning my sweet friends

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

and welcome to another round of beauty products. I have been testing some of them for a longer time than others but feel comfortable on sharing them with you over on the blog today.

So with no further ado, here they come:

Sephora High Coverage Concealer // I have bought this in December and loved it ever since. It is my number one concealer in terms of covering all the irregularity on your skin. It smoothes it out nicely and looks so well on. There are so many different colors available so there has to be a shade for every one. Mine is Ivory and I am already on the second one and will continue using it for forever – probably.

Sephora Matte Perfect compact powder foundation // Another awesome item I have gotten from the Sephora collection. Stays matte for at least a half day which is great for me cause sometimes I don´t even make it until breakfast. I use it as a powder over my foundation but it would definitely be enough in the summer as a light and airy makeup. I am using color 21 Petal.

Jade Roller // I have added this tool to my beauty routine a few month ago and I am very pleased about it and still use it. Mostly for applying my lotion in the morning cause it really helps with the swollen under eye region or any other puffiness you want to get rid of. It cool down your skin and massages in your eye cream or face lotion. I think this is definitely an awesome item to complement your beauty routine.

Mario Badescu drying lotion // My S.O.S product when I feel a pimple is going to make its debut very soon. I apply it before I go to bed and usually it is way better in the morning already.

essence matte blotting paper // Great go-to item to throw into your purse. I have one of these in almost every purse since they are super affordable and an absolute need when you have oily skin like I do. Helps your face to stay matte without applying more make-up throughout the whole day.

Comodynes jelly face mask // I am a mask girl. I don´t know about you but I love face masks. Whether they are liquid or a paste or a sheet mask. The home wellness factor gets me evey time and I feel refreshed and like a new person after a mask. Since I first heard of the brand last summer (got their self tanning sheets for my legs) I have taken a closer look what products they carry and decided to order this jelly mask. It has a real jelly consistency and feels like jello on your skin but I really think it supports it a lot. I had little scrub particles in my mask too so when you wash it off your face you also peel it in one step. Really liked that a lot. My face looked refeshed, cleaned and matte afterwards.

Annemarie Börlind night cream // This is my current night cream and I don´t have too much to say about it. It is okay I think. The consistency isn´t too thick and overall it is a great lotion for oily skin. I didn´t get any skin problems or break-outs from it but I might switch to a face oil when it is empty.

Big Sexy Hair hairspray // Awesome product for adding volume and texture to your hair to stay. I didn´t think it would work this great but it does. It literally stays in my hair and holds its shape the whole day but it is pricey. I paid 18 Euro for one bottle and my regular hairspray costs 4 Euro. I mean it makes a huge difference but it definitely isn´t a everyday product.

L.O.V hyaluronic primer // I first got this at a beauty trade show I attended in October and I am glad I did cause since it was officially launched by the brand it has won a beauty awarda and has been sold out ever since. In my opinion the hyaluronic primer is the perfect addition to your beauty routine since it helps so much to support your skin with the moistness it needs. Goes on very smooth and creates a great base for makeup or concealer you might want to add.

NYX worth the hype mascara // I gave it a shot cause I was on the search for a new mascara which brought me back to the one I have been using all the time. I think the mascara is good as well as the brush and I like how easy and smudge free it is to apply but for me it doesn´t transfer as much color as I would like to have on my lashes so it is quite the work before I am satisfied with it. I am going to use it until it´s empty but won´t purchase it again.

As always thanks for stopping by you guys. And if you have and questions or want me to try out a special product feel free to email me.

A classic red lip – sharing my favorite red lipsticks…

….

Hi guys,

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

I hope your first day back at work wasn´t to bad. I am still at home but have to go back tomorrow. Not too thrilled about it either.

Since I am kind of a lipstick addict and especially of the color red I wanted to share my favorite brands and hues with you over on the blog today.I really love wearing a red lip whether it is for work or for going out.

There almost isn´t an ocassion you can´t wear red and it is super versatile and looks great with most colors. Also a red lipstick is an absolute classic just think about Marylin Monroe or Taylor Swift. 

So these are my current favorites I am using over and over again:

MAC MAC Red // I have first seen this color on Rachel from Pink Peonies and ordered it immediately. Although it has a satin and not a matte finish I adore this color. This is a bright red with a slightly blueish udertone. I personally think a blue undertone never hurts cause it makes your teeth look wither that they are.

MAC Lady Danger // This has been my first ever MAC lipstick and it started my obsession. It is corally red with an orange undertone and a matte non glossy finish. Works best in the summer since the color is really bright but I have also worn it with several pieces in the same hue a few weeks ago. 

Sephora Cream Lip Stain in color 95 Electric Ruby // I got this one at the Sephora in Leipzig and used it on the same night and for the following days. Absolutely love the color. It definitely is a darker red but not as dark as burgundy. The formula is perfect. I lasts and lasts and lasts. The Sephora brand itself is really good. Got a few more pieces and they didn´t disappoint as well. Be sure to try one of their cream lip stains. The color range is awesome too. And for 12 Euro they are super affordable.

L`Oreal x Balmain in color Domination // I was so happy about the collaboration between L´Oréal and Balmain. In fact I wanted to have every lipstick of their small but the bold blue and sheer olive hue where a little too much for me and also the nude ones wheren´t as interesting as the others so I went with four colors I liked the most. And what can I say – my most used lipstick is the bright red. It is super matte and super pigmented and also consists of the famous L´Oréal lipstick formula.  

L`Oréal Color Riche in color 349 Paris Cherry // This one had been sitting a very long time in my drawer (only bought it because I am a sucker for all the pretty lipstick names out there) until I recognized what a beautiful color it is. It is a darker matte red shade. The formula is so soft and doesn´t dry out your lips at all and it also has the typical smell of the brand´s lipsticks I love so much. My most used red for the colder months (as seen on my lips in the pictures above).

L´Oréal Paris Infaillable Matte color 204 Red Actually // The first color of the Infalaible lip color series I ever got was a bright purple. I think it the color was called orchid or similar. Do you remember the purple lips trends about 4 years ago? Did you get hooked as well. I mean we found out that MAC Rebel existed and that wasn´t bad at all. So the third color of these tubes I have ever got was the red shade. It is a darker and high pigmented red. I absolutely love the hue and it stays on pretty long but the applicator is real crap. It is super fuzzy so you can´t draw a nice line. I am always using a liner before and disperse the color with a lip brush. Also you never know how much of the product is left in the tube. Anyways the red is just too beautiful so I don´t mind about the other two points.

Do you have any products you truly love and would buy and use over and over again. Be sure to tell I would love to know.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

A new round of beauty finds + what I got for Christmas…

 

….
 
Good evening guys,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
it is New Years Eve and I am so happy to share another round of beauty finds including my Christmas gifts. Need to keep myself busy otherwise time is standing still. 
I always enjoy wandering through the drug stores or browsing through the online stores a lot to find out what´s new and what could possibly be a hidden beauty gem. So let´s get this started (you can view my last update here).
Invisibobble Scrunchies // Loved them before and love them even more now that they come in fashionable and super soft velvet scrunchies.


NYX #nofilter Primer // This is by far the best primer I have ever used. It makes your skin look flawless and also evens out everything. Just awesome. I got this during the Black Friday sales and going to get this again.


T3 Whirl Trio // This was a Christmas gift from my husband. I wanted the T3 curling wand set for such a long time and gave several hints over the last months and I got them. I have tried two of the three barrels so far and I love it. I heats up super fast. Makes beautiful bouncy curls and the white and rose gold coloring of the tool doesn´t hurt either. I know it is definitely expensive but in my opinion worth it. Have used it about ten times since Christmas.


Charlotte Tilbury Party Girl Kit // I got this from Sephora during our Leipzig trip. I only wanted the Pillow Talk liner and lipstick in the full size but they had been sold out in stores and online so the girl at the Sephora counter found this set including both of them in the mini version (it was the last one) and I immediately got it. The set includes the mini lip duo, a mascara, a black eye liner and a copper eyeshadow pencil. I have used the lip duo, the mascara and the eye liner so far and loved every one of them. The mascara has a nice brush and makes long and thick lashes and the lip duo has the most beautiful shade ever. I am all for color but this might be my new favorite.


NYX Metallic Eyeliner in color 02 silver // I have to admit I am not good at applying black eyeliner precisely so I opted for a silve one. It isn´t too bad if you smudge a little it won´t show and still looks great for day and also for night.


Kerastase Resistance shampoo // I got this in the miniature version a few weeks ago including a hair mask and a protection balm for your hair and this has been by far my favorite shampoo. I have never had more soft and healthy looking hair than with this line. And the smell is amazing too. I am using another shampoo at the moment but definitely are going to get this one a second time. 


Sephora Pomegranate eye mask // I recently discovered eye mask and from time to time I like to use one, especially in the cold winter time. Dry skin doesn´t look good and dry skin under your eyes are even worse.


Bvlgari Rose Goldea perfume // This is my second Christmas gift I have hinted for a lot. The first time I heard about the fragrance was on the airport on our way back from our honeymoon. A sales woman gave me a paper stick with the scent on it and I loved it right away so I gave it to my husband to keep it and he put it into his wallet and was remined by the scent everday and guys it worked, I got it. It also has the most beautiful little bottle I have ever seen. Rose gold and sparkly pink!!! How pretty.


L.O.V The Glowrious deep metallic highlighting palette // I got this gorgeous palette at the Bunte Beauty days before it actually launched in stores and I have used it a ton since then but it looks almost brand new so this definitely is worth its money (it is about 16 Euro). If your make up consists plenty of rose shades this is definitely one for you.


Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink in color Lover // This is the second superstay matte ink I got. The first color I have ever got is really dark and nothing for everyday but I was impressed with the stay. I had it on until I showered and after it still looked brand new. It really is not moving at all (super bad for quick removing but really good for long days or dinners). 

Maybelline Color Sensational lipliner in color 56 Almond Rose // The lipliner was supposed to match perfectly with the Matte Ink (they came in a set) but I think it is way to dark for the other color. The pink itself is very beautiful but not in combination. I used MAC Soar with the color above.


Bean Body Coffee Scrub Coconut // First of all I loved the idea of a coffee scrub and the smell is amazing but this has been the messiest my shower has ever looked. The coffee powder was everywhere and honestly the brown water wasn´t quite as nice either. I had to clean the entire shower after so this is definitely a fail for me and I tossed it after using it once.


Rexona deo creme stick // Don´t get me wrong. I love their products and been using it for years and this really was a coincidence but that is how I found out about this. I have been using the roll-on for a long time now and I love the feel and the protection and the smell. So I ran out of my deodorant the evening before we left for Leipzig and I needed a new one so I quickly went into the store and didn´t even take a quick look I just got the product (comes in a little box with the name on it) and left. The next day I recognized I got the wrong one and thought it wouldn´t be too bad but believe me this is a total mess applying. The creme doesn´t come out or a lot of it comes out which makes it impossible to apply and you probably (like I did) get it all over your clothing. So I recommend their maximum protection roll-on but never would recommend the deo creme.


Wohoo. That has been such a long post but I really tried out a lot of new things and wanted to give you the best possible review. Stay tuned for another one coming soon.


Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
