Ask the expert: Die Parfum-Ausgabe

In unserer neuen Reihe ‚Ask the expert’ werden wir uns für Euch von Zeit zu Zeit mit Experten zusammensetzten, um sie mit Fragen zu löchern. Wir planen aufregende Themen! Diese Ausgabe befasst sich mit Parfum. Die meisten von uns werden eines tragen, vielleicht auch mehrere Flaschen zu Hause stehen haben, aber ganz ehrlich, zumindest für mich und Astrid ist Parfum immer die vernachlässigte Stiefschwester von Makeup. Wir haben uns deshalb mit Louce  und Ronin von Parfumo getroffen und sie zu allem befragt, was man über Parfum wissen sollte. (Die englische Fassung des Interviews findet Ihr hier!)READ MORE

Ask the expert – the perfume edition

We’ve got a new interview series! We’ll be sitting down with beauty experts to get all the answers for you! Some exciting topics are planned (just sayin!). This edition is all about perfume. Most of us wear it, maybe even have some bottles at home – but for both Astrid and me perfume always comes last behind makeup, skincare, and nailpolish. So we met up with Louce and Ronin from Parfumo and asked a lot of questions about perfume and things a perfume newbie should know. (Find the interview in German here!)READ MORE

Twindlytuesday: Three team members, one city

The weekend of November 15th was a really remarkable occurrence for twindly – the first meeting of all team members in person in Frankfurt. And we did what all start-ups do at meetings – brainstorming, working, having awesome food and getting some crazy team fun.READ MORE

Holiday collection hauling #3: Armani

I was waffling on my third item from my holiday collection wish list for quite some time. I swatched it, read two conflicting reviews on it (by Sara and Christine/Temptalia), wasn’t wholly convinced, and when it finally went out of stock I got the irrepressible urge to get it. Of course. Cue some frantic counter visits, and new swatching, and then I got one of the three new and limited edition Armani Eye Tints, Hollywood (#17).READ MORE

Twindlytuesday… two favourite looks!

Last week something really unusual happened – Astrid and I met in person to plan things for twindly, catch up and geek out about makeup. While we do that all the time via skype and various messenger apps, it’s really rare for us to meet in person, because we live quite far away from each other. So, what could be more fun than doing our makeup together and going for something really different that what we’re normally doing, we thought. What did we do then?!READ MORE

Holiday collection hauling #2: MAC Irresistibly Charming

I usually can’t get excited about MAC’s gift set offerings for their Holiday collection any more. After you’ve followed them for a few years, you start to see the semblances, and also mostly, the quality is usually not quite there. And don’t get me started on either the brush sets or the eyeshadow palettes! But there’s usually one item I’m tempted to get (please note that we don’t talk about the colour collection here) – and that’s the creamsheen glass set.READ MORE

Holiday collection hauling! #1 – Guerlain Neiges et Merveilles

When it comes to prettiness, I think we all can agree that this year’s Guerlain Holiday collection blew all other collections out of the park. It’s a small collection, and happily, it’s one of the rare instances when beautiful packaging, product quality and the overall tone and feel of the collection comes together. Every item was carefully curated to fit in with the others, and on top of it, the collection was suitable for a whole range of skintones and ages. (We won’t speak of the price of some items, though.)READ MORE

twindlytuesday: three… skincare holy grails!

For twindlytuesday, we’re planning to feature three things that we’re really excited about each week. That can be whatever crosses our paths – new makeup items, immediate releases, rediscovered golden oldies, exciting articles – a mixed bag of goodies basically! This week’s edition shows our skincare holy grail products – products we buy again and again and would be heartbroken if the beauty gods would decide to discontinue them.READ MORE
