Hakuhodo i-series review

Two weeks, two brushes: Hakuhodo i-series

Let’s carry on with our little “two weeks, two brushes” series, shall we? I got two new Hakuhodo brushes the last time I was in Singapore. Because… well, who can restrain themselves when standing in front of a Hakuhodo counter? Not me! This time, both brushes from the i-series and I had a somehow rocky start. Here’s my Hakuhodo i-series review: An in-depth look at both eyeshadow (i-127) and blush (i-110) brush from the synthetic Hakuhodo brush line.

January beauty favourites

January beauty favourites feat. makeup, skincare and perfume!

April is the cruellest month? I always wondered about that sentiment. Can there be a crueller month than January? It’s cold, we had to put the Christmas decoration away and I don’t know about you, but I’m totally broke after the Christmas and sale extravaganza that was December. So, what’s better than an infusion of cheap, colourful and blingy makeup into your life? While this works for me, Astrid is more about the feel-good vibes of amazing skincare and a good perfume. Which camp do you belong to?READ MORE

are ColourPop cosmetics good

ColourPop revisited – Gel eyeliner, blushes, satin liquid lipsticks and matte eyeshadows

ColourPop was one of my major disappointments of 2016. I didn’t like the products I tried from them, and then they made an appearance in the category ‘worst customer service of 2016’ in my best of 2016 post. Nevertheless, they offered free international shipping and suddenly, I wanted to give the products I hadn’t tried before a chance. So, the question is – are ColourPop cosmetics good? Those ones that aren’t hyped up liquid lipsticks and glittery eyeshadows? Millions of followers can’t be wrong, right?READ MORE

Summer travel essentials – what you’ll really need

I recently saw a Summer Travel Essentials blogpost that featured toe rings and stationery, and while I don’t know your life and if toe rings are an absolute essential to you, it got me thinking. What are my travel essentials, for summer or other times of the year? As I’ve just returned from a three week trip, I’ve got a few things on my mind I’d love to share with you – let’s just say I’ve learned from my mistakes!READ MORE

ColourPop critcal review

A solid C for ColourPop – a critical review

Since ColourPop entered the market amidst the jubilant reviews of bloggers everywhere, I’ve been curious about their products. Since I’m not in the US, actually getting Colourpop products proved to be difficult – and part of a brilliant marketing strategy that centers heavily around social media, cooperations with bloggers, and the hype that happens when products aren’t easily attainable. In spring this year, I had the opportunity to get some products via the help of a friend and jumped on that offer. I ordered some of their best-loved products and bestsellers, and have by now tried them all.  Here’s my somehow critical ColourPop review.READ MORE
