thank you NAVYBOOT for this lovely giveaway! butter london – PD Quick Topcoat in HARDWEAR and 3 free nail lacquer-vernis in ALL HAIL THE QUEEN. an amazing duo, I use the clear HARDWEAR as a base and topcoat and the ALL HAIL THE QUEEN twice for a more opaque look. I am ready for spring/summer! xx
yes, I was also laughing when I have seen this new product by Kérastase. BB CC everywhere and now also for the hair! As you know how curious I am of course I had to try it and see what it does. And let me tell you, this little bugger smells delicious and can be used on damp or dry hair, before and after sun exposure. its a very light texture that doesnt weigh down my fine hair but leaves a nice shine.
I have not used it that often yet, also because it was raining the last couple of days and it is meant to be used in the sun I will definitely use it in the future and will let you know if I am going to repurchase it or not. stay tuned! xx
I have a new beauty friend called MIA 2 – I meet her twice a day and she makes my skin feel so clean and soft. MIA 2 is a CLARISONIC facial cleansing brush that can be either used with the refreshing cleanser gel that comes with the product or with any other soap or cleansing gel. the MIA 2 comes in a neat travelling case and I need to charge it once a week.
In the morning I use the MIA 2 in the shower and in the evening I first remove the most of my makeUp with a wipe and then use the MIA 2 over the sink. Its an amazing tool, it cleanses and exfoliates the same time and it tells you when to switch the part of the face.
what does it claim?
– to clean the face 6 time better
– minimizes the pores
– better cleansing than hands alone
– greater absorption of Vitamin C after use
As I have used MIA 2 for the last couple of weeks I can so far tell you that I really like it. I can not see any changes of my pores yet, but maybe this is something that only shows after using it for a couple of months. we will see!
M.A.C has launched a new collection ALLURING AQUATIC
thank you for sending me these amazing products. I have received the parcel this very morning and it totally inspired my todays outfit. I feel so alluring and aquatic <3 although its raining and about 10 degrees C!
the packaging of the limited ALLURING AQUATIC edition is really special, the packaging of the box and the product have a haptic watersplash surface. it looks like it just got out of the ocean!
I wear ENCHANTED ONE lipstick and WHAT COMES NATURALLY lip pencil with the SEA ME, HEAR ME blush and the APHRODITE’S SHELL Bronzing Powder and it looks gorgeous. the lipstick (matte) and lip pencil are very nude and pale which makes me look even more tanned – the blush and bronzing powder have an almost creamy texture and are super easy to apply. I love it.
I use polyvore.com to put together my outfits and as some of you may know there is an option to add your own articles. well I tried to upload the image of the ALLURING AQUATIC mac collection but somehow it didnt load all the info – I decided to use it anyway.
I asked my gorgeous friend Zaira what kind of products she would pick out for me from my makeup collection. so thats what she picked out to use on me.
I asked her why?
Z: “the combination of your hair color was shouting at me to do your eyes that orange color. You have this warm tanned skin which describes these tones of both the eyes and lipstick. I wanted to have more dominant eyes so that it will not fade away with the lighter tones.”
I am very happy with the look and was surprised and amused to see my catrice blush being used as an eyeshadow, but why not! It looks stunning! so again my favorite quote “there are no limits – mix and match!” works!

“the sun is shining the weather is sweet..” so lets see what SENSAI is presenting this Summer! I got the Sensai Silky Bronze Cellular Protective Cream for Face SPF 50 – Silky Bronze Self Taning for Face – Silky Bronze Sun Protective Compact – Silky Bronze Cellular Protective Cream for Body SPF 30 and I have used these products for the last couple of sunny days! I can directly compare this collection with the Lancaster Sun Control products that I have also recently tested. so let me tell you what I think about the Silky Bronze collection:
Silky Bronze Cellular Protective Cream for Face SPF 50
a very nice cream and super easy to apply. I think SPF 50 is perfect for the face but its also available in SPF 15 and SPF 30 and it is waterresisitant!
Silky Bronze Self Taning for Face
I did not use this product yet, I will keep you posted!
Silky Bronze Sun Protective Compact SPF 30
I love bronzing compact powders and especially this one! it has the perfect shade and matte finish without any shimmer. It can be used dry or wet and is waterresistant. this is my favorite product out of the Sensai Silky Bronze Collection and I would definitely repurchase it!
Silky Bronze Cellular Protective Cream for Body SPF 30
like the one for the face it is also a very nice light cream that is very easy to apply. I used it this sunday and I was in the direct sunlight at the river for about 3 hours in the afternoon and I didnt get any sun burn. Its only available in SPF 30 which I consider a bit low. to be very honest I dont really like the smell of these creams or maybe its just because I prefere the smell of the Lancaster Sun Control products that I have also recently tested.
did you use the Sensai Silky Bronze products?
