Linklove: best beauty reads and news

In which I get up on that soapbox (rant incoming) about double standards bloggers apparently have when it comes to cruelty free products. There’s also a weird incubator program by one of the biggest cosmetics companies with lackluster results, beauty communities, beauty shopping in London, phone sex and alllll the beauty news you need!READ MORE

where to find beauty products in Shanghai

A beauty addict in China: Beauty shopping in Shanghai

There’re many highs and lows in the life of an expat, and while living in Shanghai has many perks, beauty shopping definitely isn’t one of them. Especially not for a die-hard beauty addict. On the surface, it doesn’t look that bad – in Shanghai’s enormous shopping malls, there’s usually a Sephora or drugstore, and there’re also a lot of free-standing stores of the big Western beauty brands, and some Korean ones as well. But. There’re a lot of buts, actually.

Best shopping in Ubud, Bali

A shopping afternoon in Ubud, Bali

Here on twindly, we’re always curious which exotic beauty items we’ll find when we’re vacationing. (We shared our Hawaiian, Icelandic, Singaporean finds here and also have handy Frankfurt and Berlin beauty shopping guides.) When I arrived in Bali, famous for its spa culture, yoga, beaches and arts and crafts, I came armed with a list of beauty shops I wanted to visit. (Among temples, volcanoes and beaches, of course.) Imagine my disappointment when one of the shops had moved, and I could only find one of the others! But nevertheless, I want to share some gems I found in Ubud, a charming city in the midst of the island.READ MORE

Beauty shopping in Singapore

Beauty adventures in Singapore

I love Singapore. It has been dubbed the Asian city for beginners, because for a Western person, it’s incredibly easy to get around. For me, though, it’s the Asian New York City – a melting pot, a financial hub, a touristy mess – topped with a all-year round hot climate, awesome parks and gardens, yummy food and well, the shopping. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the shopping malls and opportunities, and I wouldn’t say that I even scratched the surface of this teeming city. But here’re my favourite spots for beauty shopping in Singapore.READ MORE

moving with your makeup stash

Moving with your (rather large) makeup stash

At the beginning of the year I was presented with the daunting task to make arrangements for our move from Germany to Shanghai. Moving is always a frightening experience, but moving with your makeup stash to another continent? I was terrified. And here’s what I learned in the process, to help out you all who might someday have to ship their makeup stash halfway around the world, too.READ MORE
