Zoeva highlighter and eyeliner brush review

Two weeks, two brushes: Zoeva

Believe it or not, I bought my first two Zoeva brushes this year. I know. It’s like I’ve been living under a rock. But as I’m still on my quest for a highlighter brush that suits my needs (have a look at the former installments in this little series and you’ll see what I mean), I picked up the Zoeva 105 Luxe Highlight, and the 312 Detail Liner as an afterthought. I had just bought the Essence Cushion liner I wrote about here, and it seemed like a good point to try a new eyeliner brush. Go on reading for my Zoeva highlighter and eyeliner brush review.

decluttering tips for people who hate decluttering

Why I hate minimalism and 5 decluttering tips for people who don’t declutter

Hi, my name is Dorit and I hate minimalism and this whole declutter trend. I like buying stuff. I like owning stuff. I like having options. (Have a look at my pantry and you’ll see what I mean.) When it comes to makeup, I have way more than I can ever use up. Luckily, I also have a Room of My Own (read it at some point in your life, it’ll be worth it) and can store it easily. Luckily, too, my SO does support me and isn’t that kind of infuriating male that goes “why do you own that much makeup?!”. Nevertheless, once a year I like to go through my whole collection. Read on to see why, how and my decluttering tips for people who hate decluttering.

K-Beauty haul – lip products

I’ve no idea why Korean lip products are as great as they are, no matter which texture. I bought liquid lipsticks, matte lipsticks, glossy lipsticks, lip masks – all great. Here’s the review of some of my new favourites from peripera, Clio and Chateau Labiotte (yup, that famous wine bottle lipstick!). Why they’re all some shade of red – I guess I have a type?!
