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.
I’ve a complicated relationship with MAC. Like for many beauty junkies, MAC was my gateway drug (back in the days oft he dinosaurs when it was still relatively cheap for a girl on a budget). Between then and now I got kind of exasperated with their limited editions that drop approximately every five minutes, mediocre products they released and great ones they discontinued. But I still enjoy some old and some new products very much, so much that they’ve become staples in my makeup drawer.READ MORE
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.

It’s the story of my life that I’m inevitably drawn to pretty powders (even more so if they’re embossed or come in a pretty compact), while at the same time I’m the most boring highlighter user ever. I also prefer my highlighters to be on the subtle side. If I don’t consciously remind myself that I own approximately twenty, I’d wear MAC’s Lightscapade day in, day out. So why did I ever think that Becca Opal and MAC’s Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Double-Gleam would ever be for me?!READ MORE

For me, 2015 was the year of more thoughtful decisions when it came to buying makeup. I think I finally passed the stage of the ooooh-shiny-must-have-it-all makeup addiction, especially when it came to limited editions, and focused a lot more on skincare. In conclusion, I became really picky and borderline cranky about all that stuff that companies churn out day in, day out. And then, once in a blue moon brands came out with really innovative, thought through, great products so that I didn’t loose my faith completely. Phew!READ MORE
