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.


Last Minute Amazon (Prime) Christmas Gift Guide for Him + Giveaway Winner…


Good morning to all of my last minute shopper,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links/Markennennung-not sponsored)
men are hard to gift for cause they never want anything and if they do, they get it themselves right away??!! Truth be told. Most of the time this is the situation we have to deal with but there might be pieces they haven´t even thought about until now. The simple things are often the hardest to remember so be sure to check out this guide. Almost every article is shipped with Prime so there shouldn´t be a problem about getting it in time.

Play Station 4 // We got one about a year ago and loved it ever since. It not only is a game console but also perfect to watch YouTube videos or his favorite series on Netflix. Super versatile and a must these days.
Razor //This is super random cause every man needs a razor somehow but technology evolves every few years

The Ritual of Dao set // This Rituals gift set is perfect for men and women who don´t like the super sweet and flowery scents. It has a tart scent I absolutely adore. Got this gift set for one of the guys in our family and also a little hand lotion for myself. I would definitely recommend that as a gift or even a stocking stuffer and you can keep the pretty box.
Button down // I am aware that men don´t like to get clothes maybe because they also got clothes as a kid from their relatives.
BBQ smoker grill // The perfect gift for the outdoor cooking loving man. He can spend hour on finding out the perfect mixture of wooden chips to smoke a bunch of ribs or even throw on a teak for a quick meal and enjoy a cold beer while doing so.
Athleisure wear // People are getting more sportive every year (or at least it looks like it cause there are so many new fitness centres around here and also so many big sports retailer). So for this reason you could gift your guy a nice leisure suit or some multifunctional shirts for running or/and the gym. There are so many great brands and pieces. Something for everyone. He doesn´t have to wear a pair of big bulky grey sweats to the gym anymore.

Scarf // A classic and warm addition to any winter outfit and also available in so many colors. An absolute must-have. Would also make a great stocking stuffer.

Leather bag for work // A good quality, good looking bag that holds everything from a notebook to water bottles, pens to business cards. Period.

Watch // Being out and about or at work most of the time it is best not to loose track of time. I know that most of the people nowasays use their phone to get the time but a watch transmits such a sophistication and professinality I personally love.

Date Night shoes // It doesn´t hurt owning a pair of nice leather shoes besides your eveyday work footwear or your sneakers. A pair of good quality leather shoes for date nights, theatre visits and holiday gettogethers as well as for weddings and other formal ocassions.

Bath robe // Who doesn´t want to stay cozy while staying at home?!

This was my last gift guide for this season. Be sure to check out the others:
