wow – look at these goodies by LA ROCHE POSAY. I am a huge red lover and was nicely surprised to see their new products. are you familiar with the brand LA ROCHE POSAY? the brand started in the same named french region and is now part of the huge L’Oréal. here you can see another overview picture with all the new things.
new lipsticks, yay! NOVALIP DUO
in 185 ORANGE LASER and 191 PUR ROUGE
a moisturizing lipstick with intense pigmentation, it goes on really smoothly and
kept my lips moisturized. I love both of the colors, one red is a bit more orange and the other one is a darker red. great everyday lipsticks!
more red things, here I wanna show you the two new nail polishes SILICIUM
in 22 ROUGE COQUELICOT and 24 ROUGE PARFAIT. matching the lipsticks there is also a more orange red and a darker red. I have not tried them yet, and I am very much looking forward to doing so. I will keep you up to date via social media. stay tuned.
RESPECTISSIME INTENSE LINER is the newest eyeliner by LA ROCHE POSAY and it indeed is black that stays black after applying. I love a simple black eyeliner look and it works great with the red lipsticks. let me see whether I can find some time to take some photos of me wearing these gorgeous new pieces.
RESPECTISSIME OMBRE DOUCE in 01 SMOKY GRIS is a lovely palette with 3 colors. there is a nice nude concealing base color and two different shades of grey. all these eye products are greatfor sensitive skin and eyes and are also recommended while wearing contact lenses.
that was it, I am thru almost all the new products, I left out the mascara because I have not checked it out yet and I am not wearing mascara on a daily base. lets see I might get back about it on social media. we will see. in case you wanna know more about the new pieces have a look at the LA ROCHE POSAY WEBSITE.

aww. I was waiting for this quiet some time, and yay, it is finally here the MIUMIU parfum. so in love with the packaging and also the scent. somehow I expected something completely different, something fresh and youthful but nooo it is not at all like that, it is a very elegant chic scent for a casual to chic lady. STACY MARTIN is the face for the first MIU MIU fragrance.
kissing is something really nice, but not at all with chapped lips. I am a big fan of the clear ELIZABETH ARDEN 8 hour lip balms but also had a good colored one by KORRES. now I got these new LABELLO care&color and they are a mix between a clear and stained lip balm. I have only tried the red one yet and I like it a lot. lets see how the other two colors will look like, there is RED, ROSE and NUDE.
we are all made out of lots of water and water is one of the key essentials for surviving of course everybody knows that. but did you know that the new SPF30 foundation is based on water? a very very smooth liquid consistency with medium coverage. it blends in very nicely. and I am very happy that it has SPF 30 perfect for the nice and sunny fall days. I like it, what about you?
available in 23 different shades!
#4MANHATTAN all in one LIPSTICK
so in love with the new long lasting intense lipstick by MANHATTAN. a very nice and creamy consistency with a glossy finish perfect for any occasion as there are 18 different colors. from bright to nude, they have it all.
something good for your hair and scalp. I am already a huge fan of these new shampoos and scalp serums by GOLDWELL. my favorite one is the sensitive foam shampoo – OMG – I love foam and I love when shampoos lather – 2 in 1 – yay!
anti hairloss serum / sensitive foam shampoo / deep cleansing shampoo / anti dandruff shampoo
last week I was in Zuerich for the MIGROS I am PROFESSIONAL blogger event and I had a great time. Now I can show you some *photos of the event and wanna share some thoughts about the I am PROFESSIONAL blogger event and my favorite product with you.
BLOGGER EVENTS – some tips from my side!
In general I wanna say something, thank you very much for inviting me to all these awesome events BUT not all swiss bloggers are living in ZUERICH, where almost all of the events are taking place. so in case you invite a blogger to your event, make sure that you cover their train tickets. why should a blogger attend your event paying for it by himself and then in the end write about the event and product for a goodie bag or for the products itself? for a person without 1/2 tax a train ride from BS to ZH including the local tram tickets is around 80 CHF.
A HUGE NOOOOOOOO !!
these expenses should be calculated in the budget and it should be normal for the PR companies to inform the bloggers about that. since one year I am only attending events in ZH when the organizer covers my travel expenses. If not I am not coming to ZH as simple as that.
again I am very grateful and happy to be invited so don’t get me wrong. its just after a year of attending events in ZH for my blog I ended up spending 1500 CHF only on tickets and that was a year when I was not attending so many events, I think there were about 18 events or so. but still I ended up paying for my blogposts – do you know what I mean?
another thing that I have noticed at the last couple of events. bloggers dont want the food that you would serve at a farmers union, so please check if there are enough vegetarian or even vegan alternatives. the biggest NOOOOOOO of the I am PROFESSIONAL event was the food. IT WAS REALLY REALLY BAD, as the first 4 rounds of food where chicken, ham, cheese, and meatballs. SERIOUSLY ??? ever heard of vegetarian or vegan lifestyle? I could go bananas on this topic as I feel like a lot of people that organize those events have no idea for whom they are preparing the event. so PLEASE make sure to have meals without cheese and without meat. the sad thing about the I am PROFESSIONAL event was that there was sooo much meat left that nobody wanted, a real pitty if you think that animals had to die for that.. so in that case less is really more : )
I will start to write a blogger manual as I have so many things to complain about. something very uncommon here on isawsomethingnice where I try to only focus on positive things. but I am sure there are many bloggers out there that share the same thoughts.
alright, enough said about the food and ticket situation. now lets move on the the styling part that was really cool. I happened to have a very nice stylist and she created some natural looking curls and braided the front to the back. thank you very much, it was really nice to be pampered.
and here finally some vegetarian food arrived, delicious falafel balls but unfortunately they only made like a handful of them and sadly they were gone within seconds. the other alternative they pulled out was a vegetarian quiche, mmhhmm it was delightful but again same issue here, the amount of vegetarian food was just not enough!!
and here you can see the final result of my hair styling by I am PROFESSIONAL. my favorite product is the SMOOTH AND GLOSSY hairspray that really helped to hold my curls. unfortunately there was a massive pour down on the way to the train station and I lost half of the volume of my curls but still it looked nice. check the photos on twitter to see more >>
I am already more than 3 weeks back from vacation and I totally forgot to tell you what makeUp I took with me to Castellammare del Golfo in Sicily. So now I finally found time and here we go:
I took 5 different eyeshadows and a blusher by ARTDECO and I put them in a MAC palette. all the ARTDECO powder products like blusher and eyeshadows have a tiny magnet on the back so they are made to be stored in a palette. perfect for vacation as you can put together your individual palette. in general in summer or in summer vacation I am not applying MakeUp every day but in the evening after a long day on the beach it is nice to pamper oneself and wear a nice dress and go for dinner. well thats what I did. I was only wearing the makeUp in the evening as it was way too hot to wear makeUp during the day..
a sparkly pale brown
a matte stale blue
a warm matte dark mauve
a pale light matte brown
a matte light powdery beige
a nice warm almost pan of terracota
so as you can see out of the 5 eyeshadows 4 of them are matte and only one has shimmer.I either wore a simple look or a more smokey look.
I start with 551 all over the lid and highlight the parts below the brows. 16 in the crease.
SMOKEY LOOK 551 all over the lid and highlight the parts below the brow and the inner corner of the eyes. then I take 506 and cutting the crease. and using 517 and 520 to blend it towards the eyelid.
awesome pigmentation and no fall out thats exactly what I want from eyeshadows – I will for sure get more of these in order to have more shimmery shadows too. will keep you posted.
where can you get these ARTDECO products? I found mine at parfumcity.ch they have awesome deals and since it is a swiss online shop you dont have to pay any extra charges from the customs. ARTDECO is a german brand and is based in Karlsfeld Germany.
hello hello – I am back from my weekend break and today I wanna show you my BEAUTY YOUTUBE VIDEOS. I think a lot of you dont know that I am making videos and now is the time to share it here on the blog. I would be so happy about comments and subscriptions about all the nice things I share. below I am sharing only a couple of my videos and I have tried to put them into categories. in case you wanna watch them all click here >>
I have two really nice things to show you and I am proud of MIGROS to have been nominated for the annabelle prix de beauté 2015 with the ZOÉ creme de jour raffermissante and the I AM 10in1 beauty balm – congratulations!
I AM professional
10in1 miracle beauty balm BB
I have used the I AM 10in1 miracle beauty balm and I can totally say that this product is made for a practical and busy woman with little space in their bathroom. I mean ten products in one – c’mon thats amazing, right? so let me tell you the ten thing this little bugger is good for:
I have checked √ all the points that I can either immediately see or things that I discovered after using it for a while. to really see whether it prevents split ends and is against capillary fracture is something that can only be said after using it for a while and be able to compare it to something similar thats why I kept those points unchecked. unfortunately I have not tried the ZOÉ REVITAL crème de jour SPF 15 raffermissante and I am planning to give it to one of you – so you get to try it and see if you like it – I will announce the give away via facebook – stay tuned.

SELF TAN EXPRESS MOUSSE, thats on my to do list today!
it is time to test some beauty products and feel like a pampered princess. so what is most important to start spring?
exfoliating and scrubbing to get rid of dead skin and to prepare for an
awesome looking fake tan! I use many different products to exfoliate for
example one from the body shop, one from Clinique, one from Palmolive
and one by M.Asam they are all good and do what they need to.
after I exfoliated my skin it is time to moisturize my ankles, feet, ellbows and knees – these are all rather dry parts of the body and we dont want them to stick out and be darker.
start with the legs and work your way up by using the mitt – apply only what is left on the mitt as a last step to ellbows, feet, knees and ankles. leave on for ONE hour for a rather light tan – TWO hours of a medium tan and THREE hours for a dark tan. I did it last week for the first time and I was quiet scared and only left it for 45 minutes but the result was gorgeous. I got some nice compliments on the tan on my belly and this made me courageous enough to give it a second try and leave it for ONE hour 🙂 the tan gradually fades and there are no lines, no spots and no streaks! so I did it last night and this morning I woke up with a nicely tanned body – YAY!
so far I have used the LANCASTER products and I really like the ones for the face and I think I will use them both – the ST.TROPEZ for the body and the LANCASTER for the face – ready for spring and ready to show some legs!
ST.TROPEZ is sold at MANOR and GLOBUS or you can find it online here <<
awwww I am so happy about all these lovely new makeup things that found their way to my home – some of the them are actually not newly launched, like the brush, the mascara and the lustre drops. so let me tell you what there is new in my make-Up collection:
there are lots of new collections like the TOLEDO and BAO BAO WAN and another one will also soon be on the blog and thats the CINDERELLA one.
I took a video and showed you the products on youtube and that was my first voice over video that I made for my channel. I still got so many things to learn but filming and editing is fun!
I use the LUSTRE DROPS as a highlighter on my cheekbones and browbones in summer I sometimes mix it into my foundation and achieve an allover glow. the 217 brush is one of my favorite brush and it was about time to exchange my super old one that I once bought in a X MAS gift set. when I saw the pigmentation of the lipglass I almost fainted OMG – such a gorgeous pink! as I already told you in my youtube video I love pink lipstick and my two favorite are LICKABLE and GOOD KISSER. I swatched them for you and also swatched the lip pencil and the lipglass next to it.
the pink lip pencil might be a tad too light but I tried it and it is absolutely wearable another lip product that will work perfectly is the casual colour for lip and cheek in the color YOUNG AT HEART. aaww I am ready for spring and ready to wear bright lipstick again!
I got to try this new fragrance by CLINIQUE and I absolutely love the name and the packaging with its white bottle and golden ring around the lid. I also like the scent but I can’t see myself wearing this as I dont really like patchouli but I already have the perfect person in mind to wear it.
It is a modern fragrance touching base with natural ingredients for an elegant and mordern woman.
here you can find the overview of the ingredients:
top notes: violet leaf accord, cistus, sichuan pepper
middle notes: rose water essential, orange flower, patchouli heart
we did it again – hahahaha, yes we again had fun with makeUp and this time I used the new SHISEIDO products among many other products. as a base I used the LANCOME CUSHION MIRACLE my newest favorite foundation and the ESTÉE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR BRUSH ON GLOW. then I used the CHANEL 85 SILLAGE eyeshadow all over the lid. afterwards I applied the new SHISEIDO SHIMMERING CREAM EYE COLOR in the outer corner of the eye all away along the crease of the eyelid. then I used another creamy eyeshadow by M.A.C called DANGEROUS CUVÉE paint pot and also smudged it in the outer V of the eye and all the way up to the crease. unfortunately I couldnt find a picture of the dark grey ESSENCE eyeliner I have used to line the lashline. as Diana was wearing glasses that evening I decided to define her eyes a bit more by using the new ELECTRIC COBALT by ESTÉE LAUDER on the lower lash line but only from the outer corner to the middle. to bring in some more color I used the SHISEIDO VEILED ROUGE in the shade RD 506 – a beautiful warm rosy pink. another new product that I have used, but also couldnt find a photo, was the new SHISEIDO PERFECTING STICK concealer. that’s it – it was very easy and I am sure you can do something nice too!
for the hair not that you start to think I would do such thing I dont intend to at all – BOTOX for the hair is something completely different it renoutrishes and moisturizes the hair. Stefanie Winter uses the NIKA botox treatment and I was quiet shocked when I saw her with the needle BUT she only uses this to get the product out of its container. she then mixed it with lukewarm water. but first she washed my hair with a preparing, opening shampoo and then started applying the BOTOX from roots to ends in a layering technique. once she did my complete head she wrapped me in plastic foil and let me stay under the hood dryer for thirty minutes. then she rinsed my hair with cold water and that was it – next step: blowdrying and styling.
so, wait a second, what is BOTOX for the hair? it is a keratin and protein based treatment for all hair types but especially for dry, frizzy, brittle and chemicaly treated hair. the only exception is for curly hair: it will really soften down your curls but other than that it also nourrishes the often rather dry curly hair. the BOTOX treatment will make your hair thicker, stronger, repaired, soft and it will eliminate split ends – YAY!
I really benefited from this BOTOX treatment and I would totally do it again although it lasts over a month! since the treatment it feels a lot easier to blow dry my hair as my hair has more grip and shine. for the BASEL people: go and visit her salon behind Aeschenplatz and check out her amazing skills. there is not only Stefanie, there is a team behind her: Oli & Océan (apprentice) and Helena. Stefanie offers many other nice things such as a ayurvedic scalp massage with different oils for the different hair types.
something new by maccosmetics the gorgeous ULTIMATE collection with the lipsticks in their chunky packaging – so in love with the colors I got! and a sheer mystery powder in four different shades – the other new launched collection is called RED RED RED and it puts together the most awesome shades of red – not only for the lips but also for cheeks and nails.
I am so in love with the mac lipsticks and my favorite lipstick color is red – I could not be more happy about the two new collections. the ULTIMATE lipsticks are very creamy and the pigmentation is just beyond! I would wear marque on a day to day base and the scene for an elegant night out – so that is another thing that I love about the collection. it offers a wide range of colors – something for all of us. the RED RED RED collection holds some products that I have already extremely loved before – these are the two lipsticks LADYBUG and SEE SHEER. a little side note – I was a huge fan of the Cindy lauper Viva Glam lipstick unfortunately that was a limited edition and I couldnt find that very lipstick anywhere.. so I think the see sheer is a nice dupe for that maybe not exactly a dupe but for me it is close enough.
