November beauty favourites

Neat November beauty favourites

Ufff. It’s December, people! In all the madness of end of the year stuff that happens, as usual, I haven’t been really playing around with makeup as much as I would’ve liked. Nevertheless, my favourites may be basic, but they’re truly great, proving that in many cases, good things come in unassuming packages. (There’s a joke somewhere in that sentence, but I’m tired, in my robe and didn’t have enough coffee yet.) Astrid’s faves, though, bring the proper festive cheer. Anyways: MAC! Holiday collections! A proper gem of a foundation! Sponges?

Beauty favourites in October

Still getting back into the swing of things after spending three weeks in New Zealand, in this post I share not only my favourite beauty products of the month, but also some bits and bobs I actually picked up there.

K-Beauty lipstick haul

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?!

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

how to pair lips and cheeks

Three lipstick and blush dream teams that work

I do have my makeup routines. I guess everyone has. The looks that always work, the fallback looks when you’re feeling crap or if you’ve got 10 minutes left. And then you break out of your routine, and start to wonder – does this new lipstick work with this look? How about this blush, does it work? How to pair lips and cheeks, dammit?READ MORE

Beauty products for the zombie apocalypse

Beauty products for the zombie apocalypse

Halloween is a wonderful opportunity to look at darker topics than the ones that are usually covered here on the blog. I’m very happy that I can point out a serious issue that’s easy to overlook, with catastrophic results. You want to be prepared!!!!! It’s very important to think about this as early as possible. This is the reason I’ll write about the beauty products you need when the zombie apocalypse hits today.[1]READ MORE

Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion – review, swatches, dupes

So, I usually hate liquid lipsticks. Especially those that dry matte. Either they dry to a uncomfortable tight layer and suck every bit of moisture out of my lips until they look like raisins, or they leave a gloopy mess that slides around, never settles, and still feels uncomfortable, and still feel drying. Still, I wanted to try out the new EL Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potions. READ MORE
