After years of thinking that I had found my sunscreen holy grails, this spring found me suddenly curious. What if there were better sunscreens around? What if I was missing out?! (Oh the horror!) That feeling coincided in a timely fashion with a few travels, and in came two new Western and two new Asian sunscreens. (New to me, that is. All of them aren’t newly released.)READ MORE
Just imagine – a serum that can actually diminish fine lines and wrinkles just like Botox. For a fraction of the price. Is it a fabled unicorn of anti-aging skincare – or can it actually work? I tested The Ordinary’s Argireline Solution 10% and looked into the claims and ingredients, and spoiler! It works. (Somehow. A bit.) Read on for The Ordinary The Argireline Solution 10% review!
One of my biggest challenges as a makeup junkie is to use all the products I actually own. Yes, I lead a hard life, obviously. My motto is, though, if I own it I should use it, and all my makeup storage solutions centre around that. If I can’t see it, I won’t use it. Simple. Therefore, I try to organise my beauty stash so I’m actually able to see everything when I open drawers and there isn’t a jumble of products inside. Here’s how I do it.
I don’t know why, but this year, I’m totally into that “Bronze Goddess” look for summer. I love pairing bronzes, golds and coppers on the eyes with a bronzer or bronze-y blush and a nude-ish lip.

This is a review of two skincare products from The Ordinary: The serums I’ll be talking about are The Buffet and Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%. I reviewed some products from TO a while back that didn’t impress me at all, and again, the low price seems to reflect the low performance.

MAC x Caro Daur is a matte beige brown lipstick, a part of the MAC influencer collection. TBH I was super skeptical with this MAC influencer collection. To start with, I didn’t even know who Caro Daur is (I live in Germany). Second, she is a blonde & blue-eyed lady, which means our color palette is usually super opposite with each other.
MAC recently released four Hint of Colour Lip Oils in Asia, to the moaning and hair tearing of MAC fans outside Asia. I managed to pick one up when I was in Seoul a few weeks ago, and after trying it out for quite a while now, I can say this: You don’t need to tear your hair out over this little tube. Read on for the MAC Hint of Colour Lip Oil review.READ MORE
