Kristof Kintera – I AM NOT YOU
June 11 – September 28, 2014
m.a.c amazes me all the time! I got the relaunched HEROINE lipstick in the modesuisse goodiebag and I have been enjoying it ever since. I really like the fact that m.a.c often continues to carry special edition products. of course one never knows but so far I was always lucky. the HEROINE is a matte bright purple lipstick. as I have rather chapped lips I can only wear it after exfoliating my lips.
another rather new product that was launched in may 2014 is the STUDIO SCULPT SHADE AND LINE palettes with a huge variety of color combinations. I personally love the INDIGOBLEND but I also like the VIOLETBLEND and APRICOTBLEND that makes my eyes look very green because of the red, orange and pink tones. Its a 3in1 palette with 2 eyeshadows and an eyeliner. all of them can be used either dry or wet. also in may 2014 they have launched the PATENTPOLISH LIP PENCILS in 12 different colors. I am not a huge lipgloss fan because I always end up having my hairs on my lips but with this product it looks like you would be wearing lipgloss because of the amazing shine but the feeling and texture is like a normal lipstick or chapstick. My favorite colors are TEEN DREAM a bright coral orange, HOPELESSLY DEVOTED a super bright clean fuchsia and PLEASANT a very nice rosy pink.
please leave comment below and tell me if you have tried any of these products above?
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
its a big thing these days to do your nails like a pro at home. I question that and therefore had to try the Starter Kit by Alessandro. You get a red nailpolish, a clear twin base and top, a file, a cleaning pads and the most important UV/LED lamp. I read the manual and then started to do my left hand leaving out the thumb. After cleaning my nails with the cleansing pad, mmmhhmm, they smell like apricot! I start with the clear Twin and let it dry in the lamp for 60 seconds, then I apply the color and again I let it dry in the lamp for 60 seconds. As the last step I again apply the twin polish and I really make sure to cover the tip of my nails. now on to the right hand, which of course is always a bit harder than the left hand.. the same procedure: twincoat on 4 fingers (leave thumb out) dry for 60 seconds, then apply color, let it dry for 60 seconds and then finish with the twin polish and let it dry for 60 seconds. now I do the exact same thing to my thumbnails. Now all my fingernails are painted and I clean the top with the cleansing pad. It looks so nice and the best thing is: IT IS DRY! Wow! I was really amazed!
The product claims to last up to 10 days and I can tell you it lasts even longer on my nails.. 🙂 I got more colors and tried the product on my friends nails. I will show you all the different colors in another post, stay tuned!
How to remove the nailpolish?
thats a very simple step, you just have to peel it off. I have never had problems to remove the nailpolish but I read that there is a peeloff oil in order to remove the nailpolish.
I have to admit that I really didnt expect such a nice result! It was easy to apply and it last for more than 2 weeks! I can therefore highly recommend this product.
NOTE: some of the nailpolishes tend to pull back, it must sound weird now but if you have tried this and experienced the same you will know what I mean 🙂 so when this happens try to dry each nail after painting for 10 seconds, like this it will not run back and you can continue to paint the rest and then dry all fingers for another 60 seconds.
stay tuned for my Striplac color demonstration! xx
I found an amazing shampoo #HYDRASOURCE for dry hair without paraben! OMG – this product lathers! as some of you may know I love shampoos that lather a lot! I know its the Sulfate which is known to dry out the hair which makes the nice lather! this shampoo makes my hair feel soft and gives it an amazing grip. I actually hate fresh washed hair.. I think my hair looks best the day after washing it.. but with this shampoo I start to like my hair after washing it! maybe its the combination of the new conditioner #COLORLAST for color treated hair also without paraben. #EXQUISITEOIL with Moringa Oil Blend for replenishing treatment. this oil is a 3in1 product, as you can use it as a conditioner before washing your hair, overnight as a treatment or for styling! It smells delicious! I showed you my THE BODY SHOP moringa oil last year and I think these products are equally good. the only difference is that the one from THE BODY SHOP can be applied to body and face.

ONLINE SHOPPING at
Currently I am checking out different Swiss online shops and stumbled upon MR LENS. Have you heard about this shop before? I think the name is a bit misleading because they do not only sell glasses and lens – they also have a big variety of parfum, hair and body products. I scrolled thru their whole shop and looked for products that are available within 24 hours and planned to spend 100 CHF. To be very honest with you it is not the most stylish online shop I have visited but its kept simple and I think its more about good deals than looking super nice 🙂
Ever since I discovered JO MALONE in London I am a huge fan of their fragrances and when I saw that MR LENS sells the JO MALONE cologne for 71.30 CHF I wanted to give the LIME BASIL MANDARIN cologne a try. So what else did I find – I saw NIVEA showergels and handwash for 3.80 CHF and figured why not trying the NIVEA showergel and handwash range 🙂
Shopping at MR LENS is very easy and I didnt have any problems with my purchase. I spend 99.60 CHF for the JO MALONE cologne, 6 showergels and 1 handwash by NIVEA. I ordered around 3 o clock in the afternoon and the next morning at 9 o clock I got the parcel delivered to my house. so within less than 24 hours I had all my things – THATS FANTASTIC!
ladies, spring is about to be here and Estée Lauder presents some really awesome new products. I was invited to the press lunch in Basel and had the opportunity to get all the products explained and introduced. we all got a booklet with the latest products and a lot of interesting tips!
#1 Sumptuous Infinite daring length and volume Mascara
Some of you may know that I am not a Mascara Fan at all 🙂 I hardly ever use Mascara.. But still I am always craving new things and I am one of these person who loves to try out new things. So of course I gave this Mascara a try and I have to say it does what it promises. It made my lashes look longer and made them dense and I really liked the shape of the brush.
#2 Revitalizing Supreme CC Creme
A new anti-aging CC Creme – which adapts to your skin color and gets slightly tinted. the Cream should be applied as the last step after the moisturizer and inbetween foundation. I wear the CC Creme on Sundays and I just wear it on top of my moisturizer and it makes my skin look very even and it reduces the redness on my cheeks.
#3 ReNutriv Ultimate Contouring Eye lift
I cant wait for summer.. this will be my best friend in summer! The new ReNutriv Eye Lift Creme has an amazing applicator out of ceramic which always stays cool. No matter if you have it in your purse or in your room it stays the same temperature. its like magic! I use it without creme and start from the inner part sliding outwards underneath my eyes, I repeat this 3 times per eye after that I apply the creme with the same move. I have been using it for the last couple of weeks and I really see a difference in my skin around my eyes – YAY!
#4 Pure Color Envy Lipstick
Bright lips, I am so ready for the spring summer colors of 2014.
20 different intense moisturizing color shades for bright lustrous lips!
#5 Modern Muse
Modern Muse – I love the name of the newest Estée Lauder fragrance.
The fragrance has a very elegant and soft note and became one of my favorite fragrances. I wouldnt say its a fresh scent but still it makes me feel very fresh and clean. I took it to London for the fashionweek and whenever I travel short distances with small luggage I limit myself to bring only one parfum and allow myself to buy one in the dutyfree 🙂 so this time I didnt find a suiting parfum on my way to london so this meant I had to use the same parfum everyday for one week 🙂 and I loved it!! on the way back I found something nice, something we dont have in switzerland, but I will tell you in another post. stay tuned. I can highly recommend to visit your local parfum shop and try the Modern Muse fragrance – I am sure you will love it too.
#6 Pure Color Nailpolish
Not only bright lips but also bright nails – the new Pure Color Nailpolishes are really nice. I wore it for several days and it didnt chip. But I also used the top coat from Estée Lauder so I cant tell you if it would chip or not if wearing it without top coat. I will try it and will let you know.
soo, thats it for now. I had fun with all those new products and I hope you will enjoy them soon too! spring starts this month, yay! I will show you the Mascare, lipstick, CC Creme and Nailpolish in an upcoming post! stay tuned! xx

RIRI WOO lipstick and nailpolish
LADIES & GENTLEMEN.. I have a wonderful change to announce – I fell in love with the M.A.C Face & Body Foundation and use it instead of the M.A.C. Mineralize Foundation.
The best thing about the F&B Foundation is the finish, it has such a nice light texture. Once applied it looks very natural and can be build up by adding more layers for more coverage.
I use my fingers or a sponge to apply instead of my M.A.C. 187 brush and think it gave me way better results. The F&B Foundation really starts to become like a moisturizer when applied to face – perfect for my wintery dry skin!
Which foundation are you using and why do you love it? And let me know which brush you use to apply foundation or if you also use your fingers for certain products. Please leave a comment – sharing is caring xx
I am so so ready for this –
