hyped-up products that didn’t work

The thing about reviews – hyped-up products that didn’t work

A beloved YouTube and blog category is the ‘Worth the hype’ tag for about every beauty product imaginable. For every beauty blogger and vlogger influenced hype, there’re again bloggers and vloggers wanting to check said hype. And in the end, it’s up to you what to believe. I want to show you what happened when I was enabled and why things went awry. Follow me on a journey through blogs, vlogs, discussions with friends, and see where Twindly comes into that.READ MORE

March favourites: beauty and books!

We at twindly HQ have been beauty shopping! (Blame it on this spring feeling when you just *need* something new after the long winter to perk you up!)

Which is here. Plus, we share our favourite book we’ve been reading lately! Read on for our March beauty and book favourites!

The Ordinary Vitamin C serum and primer review

Review: The Ordinary Vitamin C Serum and Primer

The Ordinary – the most hyped up skincare launch of 2016. It all came together: endorsement from ‘gurus’, youtubers, the press (print!!!), a line that’s unapologizingly nerdy, and last but not least, the legacy (it’s a Deciem line, after all), the clean chic and, yes, the price point. It’s incredibly cheap, and the message is somewhere along the lines of ‘shit that works can be cheap’. You’ve got to do your homework, though – the names aren’t necessarily understandable or appealing. Instead of ‘anti-aging’, you’ll come across ‘Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F’. Beautyjunkies handled the release like the second coming, and I ordered a shit-load of stuff. Because hey, it’s cheap, and in the name of science… *mumbles* So here’s my The Ordinary Vitamin C serum and primer review.READ MORE

beauty bucket list for 2017

The beauty bucket list for 2017

Bucket lists. What better end to 2016 than looking forward to the beauties 2017 will bring, and to ponder what to buy from the upcoming spring releases? Because I don’t know about you, but chances aren’t really big that this girl will ever do a triathlon (nor would I want to) and trekking the Inca trail is about my worst nightmare. But a beauty bucket list is straight up my alley!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!
