September linklove – the best beauty (blog)posts

These are the geekiest posts ever, I promise you! But then, I’m a (beauty) geek, and get a kick out of the strangest things – an overview of all of 2016’s new lipstick lines, for example! Or a powder that’s tailored to your skin, and yours alone – from the 1950s. Or why everyone on TV has the same hair. Really! They have! You just haven’t noticed it! Have a look at September’s best beauty blogposts!READ MORE

holy grail skincare

Holy grails I buy again and again – skincare edition

Holy grail skincare, people. Holy grails. It was actually very easy to decide what’s going to be in this post – I just had to look into my backup drawer. “Backup drawer?!” I hear somebody explain incredulously. Yup, backup drawer – as I have to import nearly everything while I’m living in Shanghai, I actually have a backup drawer (or two. One’s in the fridge). So here’s what I buy again and again, because this is the good stuff – my skincare holy grails. Or the products I’d weep over if they ever were to become discontinued.READ MORE

Glamour Shopping Week Shopping List

Glamour Shopping Week 2016 Shopping List

Anders als in den letzten Jahren gibt es dieses Mal keine ausführlichen Shopvorstellungen mit unseren Empfehlungen, was sich bei der Glamour Shopping Week wirklich lohnt. Dieses Mal seht ihr hier unsere Wunsch-/ Einkaufslisten. Das hat mehrere Gründe – ihr könnt hier und hier in unseren Empfehlungen stöbern, wenn Euch ein Angebot eines Anbieters besonders interessiert, und ihr wissen wollt, was unsere Empfehlungen für diesen Shop sind. Das ändert sich nun aber nicht so dramatisch, dass es einen erneuten Post erfordern würde. Außerdem habe ich das Gefühl, dass das Angebot zwar immer größer wird, die einzelnen Deals jedoch schlechter, und da macht es mehr Sinn, sich auf die Rosinen im Kuchen zu konzentrieren. Und die picken wir uns im folgenden schonungslos raus!READ MORE

twindly's Mascara + Primer Comparison

Mascaras and Primers for Asian Lashes

I have the typical Asian lashes: on the thinner side, not too long, and definitely not full. I’m still on the lookout for the best mascaras and primers for Asian lashes.  Currently I happen to have five opened bottles of mascaras and two bottles of lashes primers (which is rare!). So I figured, let’s do a side by side comparison post and review!

Perfumes for the time between summer and fall

I totally realize that Shanghai is weather-wise somewhat else entirely, but given the recent heatwave Europe is having right now, I guess my post won’t receive a lot of raised eyebrows. In short, fall and PSLs are rolling in like an avalanche, but it surely doesn’t feel like it. It definitely doesn’t feel like I should swathe myself in all those warm, woody, cashmere-scarf like scents, but I am searching for perfumes for the time between summer and fall.READ MORE

moving with your makeup stash

Moving with your (rather large) makeup stash

At the beginning of the year I was presented with the daunting task to make arrangements for our move from Germany to Shanghai. Moving is always a frightening experience, but moving with your makeup stash to another continent? I was terrified. And here’s what I learned in the process, to help out you all who might someday have to ship their makeup stash halfway around the world, too.READ MORE

August beauty favourites

August beauty favourites – makeup and skincare!

August. Summer is nearly over (or not, depending where you are), it’s my birthday month (and oh how many birthdays I’ve spent with miserable weather as a child), and these are all reasons only to surround myself with things that make me happy. The scent of oranges is one of those things, incidentally, and what colour could be more fitting for summer favourites than happy, bright orange?!READ MORE

French Pharmacy Favourites

Five French Pharmacy favourites for absolutely everybody

French pharmacies can be magical places, full of fabled beauty items Lisa Eldridge & co. always talk about. Or they can be totally overwhelming and crowded. The place where your significant other is complaining about your time-consuming beauty-buying habits while you’re standing in the aisle unable to decide what you want to buy (the last scenario may or may not have been a personal experience). So, here’re five products for your shopping list and a little sneak peak into the best of the best of French pharmacy products.READ MORE
