so these new buggers have all found their way to my mail box and are ready to be shared with all of you. some of the pieces I have already tried and some not. so lets start with the update:
M.A.C / brooke candy nailpolish / BLACK STALION
I have not had the time to use this nail polish yet but I absolutely love the color!
LE PETIT MARSEILLAIS / hypoallergenique shower cream / aloe vera / almond butter
since I am using soap bars in the shower I have not bought any bottled shower gels and thats why I have not tried it yet. as soon as I am out of all the soap bars that I have bought in Cassis, France, I will give this shower cream a try.
M.A.C / veluxe brow liner / dark brunette
a super awesome brow pencil. I was already a big fan of the M.A.C brow pencils before and can really see an improvment in that one. I either use it alone or with my benefit brow kit.
MUGLER / angel muse edT
thank you very much for sending me this new MUGLER fragrance. unfortunately this is not my cup of tea and I will find someone that I can give this to. are you interested? if so, please leave a comment below.
URIAGE / moisturizing lipstick
for all the people with chaped lips, this is another great product to use on a daily base. I am a huge fan of the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour stick and the Clarins oil balms and with this moisturizing stick by URIAGE I have found another favorite.
URIAGE / gentle cleansing syndet
I did not have the time to try this gentle cleansing lotion yet. it says that it can be used for face and body and therefore in the future it will be in my shower. at the moment I am cleansing my face with either the LUBEX anti-age cleansing milk or with cleansing oils by either CLINIQUE or L’Occitane. as soon as I am out of these buggers I will give it a try. or in case that I am only using it for the body I will start using it after the LE PETIT MARSEILLAIS shower cream.
AESOP / herbal deodorant
I did not try this new aluminum free deodorant yet. so I can not really say much about it other than telling you about its ingredients: sage leaf, zinc, ricinoleate and which hazel.
M.A.C / pro longwear waterproof colour stick / madly sunny
I have not had the time to play with this bright eye color stick. absolutely love the color and will for sure have lots of fun with this at the beach as it is waterproof.
L’OCCITANE / sublime repairing oil
I have not tried this repairing hair oil yet but I can not wait to. the thing is that eventhough I am using hair oils after every hair wash (about two times a week) they still last quiet a while. at the moment I have the following oils in my bathroom: REDKEN diamond blow dry oil, KERASTASE chronologiste and the KERASTASE elixir ultime. as soon as I am done with all of these oils I will give this sublime oil a try.
that was it from my beauty update. I wish you all a lovely day and hope to soon see you again on my blog. X
I was playing around with some of the Brooke Shields by maccosmetics collection last sunday and really enjoyed it. I love the packaging, colors and textures of the products. so my first impression is really good and I am so happy that my mom brought me these pieces that you can see above. I love red bright lips and therefore I looove this lipstick. the nailpolish is a very subtle peachy brown and is perfect for fall. the lipgloss has almost the same color as the nailpolish and I also used it top off the lipstick and then it totally changed the color and became a brighter orange red. I love it and will soon show you a photo of me wearing these pieces.
DIGNITY nailpolish EXCITE cremesheen lipstick ARTFUL lipglass lip gloss
a simple bronzing look with almost nude lips and a thin black eyeliner line and a touch of blush on the apples of the cheeks. I wear the light perfecting base by Clarins as a base and eyeshadow. this look took me about 10 minutes and I am sure I could have done it faster – but who likes to stress when applying makeup – NOT me!
loads of new things were launched by M.A.C and I will soon tell you in detail what I got from the different collections. my favorite piece so far is the A NOVEL ROMANCE – GOOD KISSER lipstick. a very bright fuchsia (matte) color that stays put and lasts for at least 5 hours – I had it on today 🙂
pink, violet, ivy to name just a couple of colors from the new limited edition by maccosmetics. the eyeshadows have a nice metallic shimmer and the lipsticks are either pink or berry/plum colored and make a nice contrast. I got the bre for beauty powder blush, lust extract lipstick and the lucky green veluxe pearl eye shadow and I love them all. stay tuned to see me wearing these gorgeous products.
aww. M.A.C has launched the new collection called MOODY BLOOMS
and I got a few pieces to play with. This morning I used the BRED FOR BEAUTY BEAUTY POWDER BLUSH and the MINERALIZE SKINFINISH NATURAL SUN POWER! wow! these products are totally made for me!
blushes, bronzers and lipsticks are my favorites! I will get back to you and introduce the whole collection.
today is a special day, I am going to meet my Bloggerfriend MIA and we are going to the hairdresser to experience something new. soon I will tell you more! stay tuned. xx
aawww. I feel like I am in seventh heaven sitting on cloud number nine. something for my hair, something for my body, something for my face and accessories! I have only tried the new nivea products twice and I really like the mega strong styling spray. my new swatch watch and the wonderful earrings by lara patrizia vogt that I have already showed you are really precious pieces to me. the new bb highlighter by estee lauder is fantastic it makes my eye area glow and it goes perfectly with the estee lauder double wear foundation. the last couple of days I couldnt take my hands off the extra dimension blush from the limited alluring aquatic edition its just absolutely gorgeous. and last but not least my new body lotion by kiehls it is silicone free and smells like something super nice but really hard to describe – I love it!
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 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.
thank you very much for letting me try these gorgeous new products.
as you can see in my picture above IT’S SPRING TIME and that’s why I feel super confident to show you bright colors.
#MINERALIZE GLASS wake me up cheerful lovingly yours
aaww.. they smell so good, I really have to hold myself back from licking my lips. I used them the last couple of days and I gotta tell you: I LIKE ! lovingly yours is a great everyday color – wake me up is an alerting red and cheerful is a trendy orange. a perfect color range for spring & summer!
#MINERALIZE RICH LIPSTICK so good
I am a lipstick person from the bottom of my heart, I told you before that if I can only take one beauty item to an island I would choose one of my bright lipsticks. I guess that says everything about how crazy I am about the new mineralize rich lipsticks! so good is a wonderful dark magenta toned lipstick with a creamy finish.
#PREP+PRIME CC COLOUR CORRECTING LOOSE illuminate
so far I have used the illuminate twice and I can see the illuminating glowy but not powdery finish it leaves on my skin. It can be used to set foundation or just directly on the moisturized skin.
I am so proud of Manuela Frey, she had an amazing year and she became number 1 Model of the FASHION WEEK CATWALK 2014. She walked 63 shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris. Congratulations my dear!
So when I saw her in front of the backstage at MODESUISSE I had to have a little chat with her. Back in the days, the weekend after she won the ELITE Model Contest I had the honor to be the wardrobestylist of her first photoshoot with Valentina Pezzo (photography) and Christian Merz (mau)
LONDON FASHIONWEEK 2014 – M.A.C media lounge
at Somerset House
I love watching makeup artists doing their job – I think it is soo inspiring for me.. unfortunately all the appointments were booked but I still had fun watching other people. thanks M.A.C for having me as a relaxing guest in your media lounge! xx
this month it will be all about BEAUTY PRODUCT BESTSELLERS previously I have showed you the Bestellers of L’Occitane and The Body Shop and today I am going to show you the Bestsellers of M.A.C cosmeticsc.
red lips, I looove red lips, ergo I also love red lipsticks and my favourite red lipstick is one of the Besteller products by M.A.C – #1 “Ruby Woo” lipstick – a wonderful matte red. My third step of my skin routine in the morning is to apply primer, of course not every day but when I ll be out all day or if I have a photoshooting I use the #2Prep & Prime Natural Radiance Base Visage – it makes my skin very even and leaves a perfect base for my foundation. After applying foundation I use concealer around my nose and on the red parts of my cheeks (couperose) – #3Mineralize Concealer is the bestselling concealer by M.A.C and I can only use it around my cheeks and nose as it is too dry for under my eyes. I tried it several times but it always leaves very thin dry lines around my eyes.. and ofcourse I dont like that 🙂 so if you have rather oily skin around your eyes I would totally recommend this concealer. aaaww, the #4Mineralize Rich lipstick in the shade “All Out Gorgeous” is sooo pretty!! I can not get enough of this color. As many of you might know I am a huge fan of bright lips so I totally agree with all the other ladies who make this product a bestseller. Do you use powder foundation? #5Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation will be your favourite, I am sure about that. Personally I prefere to use liquid foundation as I dont like a too matte powdery finish on my dry skin. but I love to use it to set my bright lipsticks. An all time favourite of mine is the #6Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powder. I use it every day to set my foundation.
