Hi guys, 
(post contains affiliate links / Beitrag/Werbung enthält Affiliate Links)
another month is over and Christmas is almost here now so besides all the other things I am preparing for the most wonderful time of the year I am still testing out the new products I got for you. 
Ardell brow sculpting gel
I got this since I was reading so much about brows lately and I hate that mine are looking in every direction when I get home. Yes they might be too long but they should stay where they are. I am not lying to you first I did not know if I would like it cause it has such a jelly consistency and I am not quite sure if it does the trick for me. I really have strange brows. But I am definitely gonna incorporate this into my daily beauty routine. It does hold for a few hours but not the whole day. Although the price is more than okay and the smell is awesome.  
4Lou Too Glam to give a Damn vanity case
I saw it and I had to have it. Isn´t it the coolest?! There are different texts available. Also love this one. The pouch is made of a thick linen material and since it isn´t the biggest it is perfect for your handbag. To carry your make-up or too carry your medicines and other stuff you take with you. It is about 20€ and I would buy it definitely again.
I first saw this on Olivia Jeanette´s insta stories and I was curious. I got this two weeks ago and I have been using it for about ten days now but it is just to early to say if there are any results. If not it is okay cause it is only about 3€. Stay tuned.

 Artdeco nailpolish in – 673 red volcano
835 ivy green
For upcoming Christmas there should be two colors outstanding among the others in your closet. Red and green – my all time Christmas favorites. I love the ardeco nailpolishes cause they are high pigmented, last a long time and have a reasonable pricing.



EOS peppermint lip balm – limited edition for Christmas 
I am absoluetly obsessed with this. This is the perfect balm for Christmas time. If you could only know how much I love candy canes in my hot chocolate you would totally understand. You definitely need this if you won´t miss the Christmas smell wherever you go.



I know I have had brow pencils from different brands the last two month and I thought I would prefer them over a powder but I wasn´t really satisfied – although I liked them and will definitely keep them and use them until they are used up. But the brow palette is perfect I love it. I got the color medium and it fits perfectly for my dark blonde eyebrows. I am only using the light shade. The brush isn´t really good so I am using my own. The powder is high pigmented so you won´t need a ton of the product and I think it is totally worth the 23 €.
 This style is a limited edition, I think it might only be available through the holidays. First I wanted all of them but I slowed myself down and thought about which one I could possibly need and I went for the blush brush. It is the best I own now. I has the right amount of solidity and it takes the right amount of product to get some nice color onto your cheeks. And the glitter guys reflects so beautiful in the light!!!!
This smells amazing. So so good. 
I first thought this could work as a sample size cause it really is small but after playing around with it I found out you really need a teeny tiny bit of the powder if you don´t want to use it for Halloween cause since it is translucent it covers and it is buildable.

 L´oréal 2in1 base and top coat
I have only used this as a top coat so far. I don´t like the thought on using this as a base coat since I have a trusted one from essie. But it works really great as a top coat. Dries quick and doesn´t get scratches or chips so easily. For 8 € it also has a great price point and since I have a lot of the L´oréal nail polishes I like using the matching products.

Garnier eye make-up remover
Just another addition. I am really satisfied how it takes of my eye make-up and for the price of 4 € there isn´t a  thing to complain.

Garnier micell facial toner 
Throughout the years I have been using so many facial toner I don´t know if they would be even countable. I had some which smelled awful, I had expensive and cheap ones. I tried trendy ones and some which where on the market forever. I had so many toners which left a gross and sticky feel on my skin but then came Garnier. It is the first one I don´t have to clean my face afterwards cause it is light and has no smell.

Rituals candle
They make some of the best candles on the market. I love Yankee Candles but they are a little better. A little more expensive too but you can have the smell of your favorite shower gel also in your living room now. Perfec addition for a cozy weekend indoors. 

Do you have any favorites ? 

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

My monthly beauty favorites and must-haves for September….

….

Hi guys,

happy Saturday and welcome to another monthly favorites. I haven´t done one in quite a while cause I did not have so many new products and the ones I got new I had to try out first cause otherwise I would not know what to write about to you if I did not test them first.

L´oréal Paris nailpolish in 668 bleu royale and 334 violet de nuit
The nailpolishes from L´oréal are my favorite ones ever. The quality is great. The colors are really pigmented even the very light ones and for the price of 8 Euros for one you can´t complain about a single thing. Also the packaging is pretty. The structured glass bottle with a golden cap.


Dr. Hauschka melissa balm for the day / melissa face oil for the day
I ordered a set of their clarifying prodcuts to test them out and the only thing I have used so far is the melissa balm and the melissa oil for the day. And it is great I think I like the oil even more cause it leaves a smoother and drier feeling on my skin than the balm . Just can recommend these. They are on the pricier side but they really help me since I am longtime fighter against my bad skin. I have a full post for these products when I am done testing.


NYX butter glosses in Éclair / Crème Brulée / Maple Blondie
I found these on Katey McFarlan´s Instagram story and she was recommending theme so badly that I had to have them and they are only 6 Euros so I gave them a try. I am always a little cautious with lip gloss cause I don´t like the sticky feel of the most of them. The quality is really good. The leave a soft feeling on your lips and don´t stick at all. I might get them in some darker shades as well as the light ones are not as pigmented as I thought although they are a hit.


L´oréal Paris Color Riche matte lipsticks in 103 Blush in a Rush and 349 Paris Cherry
There is not much to say about them. I love them, especially the matte ones. The colors are all so beautiful and I love to get my hands on new ones. I got a darker red for fall season and the blush shade for all the time. I hope I can get my hands on one or two of the Balmain x L ´oréal collection which is going to be released at the end of  September.


Living Proof no frizz weightless styling spray
Buying another product of their brand wasn´t intended cause I had the hairspray from the no frizz line of Living Proof and my mom did not like it all and also said it wasn´t working. She has really frizzy hair. I think she might have invented it. But I have read a great post about it on Gal meets Glam in the summer and I didn´t want to let go of the idea that this brand wasn´t working. So I gave it another shot and I am so glad I did cause it is the perfect product for me – almost couldn´t believe it. I am using this spray for second day hair after I curled them. Mostly they are standing in every direction and they tend to be pretty dry and tousled the next morning. That is the hard core case to solve for the product and it worked so well. I sprayed it on and let is set for a few minutes and my hair got shiny and soft. It was easy to comb and I could get some pretty waves from the leftover curls (otherwise I would have to make a bun out of it cause that is all that works in this case). It is a little pricey – costs about 30 Euro – but I would buy this over and over again. Incredible good.


EOS Vanilla Orchid extra hydrating hand lotion
I have found this by coincidence. I just needed a new handlotion for my handbag. I do like the EOS handbalms cause they look cute and their fragrances smell so good but they aren´t as hydrating as I would wish for. But the packaging said that it was for extra dry hands. I haven´t found it on the Internet so far so maybe you have to look at the drug store if you want it. Did not use it but the smell is really good. Somehow it already reminds me of Christmas.


Smashbox Highlighter palette
This wasn´t a planed product, in fact I was never interested in this highlighter palette. I wanted the highlighter palette from Tarte Cosmetics but they sold out and never restocked them so I searched for an alternative and I found this one. Now that I tried it out I like it a lot. I got it in the shade combination pearl and it is such a good product. The colors are so pigmented. This might last for a few years. They also have a more golden color combination too. The palette is a collaboration with a youtube beauty star and Smashbox. It costs about 37 Euro and I think it is worth every penny.


Vichy Liftactiv Yeux
I wanted to try this eye cream from Vichy for so long. Since I had read about it on Mara´s blog M loves M some months ago. But I still had an open eye cream and I wanted to use this one up first. But let´s move on to today. I ordered it from amazon (that was the only possible way to get it without heading into the mall – this brand is only sold by pharmacies in Germany).
L´oréal Paris dry shampoo
First of all I didn´t even know that L´oréal also sells dry shampoo´s. I first read about it in an beauty secrets article and I wanted to try it cause I am always on the hunt for a better dry shampoo. I love it. The product smells so incredible good and I think it doesn´t put to much white dust onto your hair.  I got some more from amazon but they are also available on Douglas.
