    Palette Dupes – ABH, Too Faced and more

    Hello, Hallo, Olá, Who doesn’t love some good dupes? I love to know about dupes, even if am not interested in purchasing either the original or the dupe product. Also, lately I have been shifting a bit more towards shopping my own stash and trying to dupe new releases with things you already own kind of idea, so this post is kind of a mix of both because the dupes i am showing you today do come from my stash. Shall we start? ABH Modern Renaissance Dupe This has to be one of the most duped palettes out there. I have seen many videos of people duping with other palettes,…

    December 2018 Beauty Emtpies

    Hello, Hallo, Olá, ready for December Empties? I am! This month was kind of consistent with my pace of using products up. To the used up products, I have a few decluttered products because I just realized how old they were (buckle up your seat belt for that!). Let’s just jump into it, shall we? Isana Classic Soft Body Lotion This is the most basic body lotion you can get at the drugstore. I like it. It is VERY affordable (ca. 1 EUR), it lasts me a long time, sinks well into the skin and does feel nourishing. For my taste, it is very liquid -y and thin. In Summer…

    One Week of Blue Eyeshadow

    Hello, Hallo, Olá, this post was loong in the making just for the fact that I didn’t really have time to put it together. Also, after I saw the photos i had taken, i was disappointed that the colors weren’t showing that well through – thank your dull grey German weather. I did try to recreate some looks but I didn’t have the time or the conditions to take reasonable fotos, so I am just going to play along with what I have. Just a word of caution: I did edit some fotos in regards to lightning and contrast in hopes I could get the blue colors to show better…

    YT Channels I’ve been enjoying lately

    Hello, Hallo, Olá, I thought I’d do something different today and share with you some recently discovered youtuve channels that I have truly been enjoying in the last two months or so. These are all beauty related but I am thinking of turning this sort of “Shout-out /Recommendation” posts into a small series, so that from time to time I can just let you guys know who I have been watching more recently. Maybe you can also find some new interesting fellow beauty lovers to watch and support! Lets start, in no particular order. Rachael Stephanie Channel I believe I have found Rachael´s Channel quite a while back, but at that…

    Stash Series – Concealer & Powder

    Hello, Hallo, Olá! This is the second installment of my Stash Series (catch the 1st part here). After Fondations are Primers, we are till in the circle of face products but todays´stars are the concealers and face powders in my stash. Concealer / Corrector Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Precision Concealer This is the concealer I have been using for most of this year. I bought a few months ago and have been using it ever since. Although i use it everyday, i still can’t seem to have an opinion on it. I bought it in hopes it would work as a concealer and corrector as well, and as far as…

    Duping the ABH Soft Glam with MAC eyeshadows – Shop my Stash

    Hello, Hallo, Olá, From the title you already know what is the theme of today´s post. I went through my Stash, specifically my MAC eyeshadows and tried to dupe the shades in the Anastasia Beverly Hill Soft Glam palette. More than having exact dupes to the shades, my point was to recreate the vibe of the palette. There are really some beautiful unique shades in the ABH palette I couldn’t dupe, but for the most part – and for my purpose – i managed to find quite a good shade match for almost every color. Here is the original Soft Glam, with swatches of the shades (foto through: @beaudiction) I…

    Products I have hit pan 2018 edition

    Hello, Hallo, Olá! I‘m back with a little bit of pan porn! Yey – who doesn‘t love some shiny pans right? I have to say I am not a major panner. I take some challenges (currently doing 18 in 2018 and 13 by Halloween), keep my updates more or less private and I am overall in the mindset of being more counscious about my purchases. I appreciate the community because they are kind and have great tips to share, plus i find it really refreshing that although they also share their hauls and purchases, they aren’t just about that – in fact, that is just a small part of it.…

    November Empties 2018 Beauty

    Hello, Hallo, Olá It is time for November empties! This month I don’t have a bunch of products but I still want to share them with you and give you some reviews on the items i did finish. Essence Make me Brow Powder Pen Now, this was a product that intrigued me back when i bought it. The idea is that the foamy applicator will be „soaked“ in brow powder which is allocated at the cap, an then you apply it to your brows. At that point, many companies came out with this gimmicky product and i just got the cheapest one i could find to try it. The color…

    Stash Series – Primer and Foundations

    Hello, Hallo, Olá, I thought I’d start a new series here on the blog where i show you guys my stash. I always enjoy collection videos and related content, so I thought I’d make my own. I kind of low key already started this series with my MAC eyeshadow collection, but I wanted to make it official – with this being it´s first post, so to speak. To start thing off, I’m beginning with the basics: foundations and primer. I don’t currently own many products in these categories (there have been different times many many moons ago). I have consciously tried to stay away from buying primers and foundations and…
