I must confess that I am a huge sucker for berry lipsticks, balms, tints… Well, basically everything berry coloured that you can slather on your lips. It’s hardly surprising that I felt the urgent need of getting my hands on the new Benefit They’re Real! Double The Lip lipstick and lipliner in one which creates a gorgeous ombré effect on the lips. Yes, it kills two birds with one stone and makes an application easy-peasy. Let’s take a closer look at it. There we go. It…

The all natural brand Indie Lee was called into life in 2009 after its founder Indie recovered from a life-threatening brain tumor. She had a great thought behind creating her skin care line: “We all need to go back to basics”. At the beginning of this year I drastically started to change my eating habits and cut out all animal products of my diet. The main reason why I wanted to create a change was basically my food intolerance and skin situation. I am lactose intolerant for…

Each and every time I scroll through my Instagram feed I get the feeling that the good old days of natural and barefaced days are gone and everyone’s make up needs to be desperately #onfleek. Everybody wants to look flawless, myself included, but I don’t believe in the thought that makeup is the only remedy to achieve an impeccable appearance. I am an advocate of the thought that great skin starts at the root: your bare skin. You can cover every single spot, every scar…

The GLAMGLOW Supermud Clearing Treatment is allegedly a super-duper skin saviour and I was incredibly excited to test it myself. Actually, I am a big fan of masks that are kind of clay-ish since I believe they are most effective to deeply clean the pores and they leave a certain feeling of freshness on the skin. The Supermud Clearing Treatment is also one of these masks. It helps to fight common skin concerns such as redness, scares, adult-acne, spots, blemishes, blackheads, oiliness, razor bumps and in-grown hair.…

Charlotte Tilbury is a fantastic make-up artist and her make up range is absolutely fantastic as well. I have my own little Charlotte Tilbury make up collection that I love and I really enjoy watching her YouTube videos because she is doing a stunning job. The typical Instagram make up is super popular presently (you know, the heavy contouring, perfect eyebrows, false lashes, et cetera.) but Charlotte creates flawless looks with just two handful of products. I asked myself if her skin care line is as good as…

At the end of last year, my skin condition was at its worst and I was in desperate need of effective products to fight a light sort of acne. I had a spot here and there before, of course, but I never had to deal with crazy breakouts spread all over the face. You suddenly start to feel insecure about leaving the house without covering your face with make up and in general, I was very upset about this whole situation. I stumbled across Mario Badescu’s…

After suffering from a light adult acne the past months I realized one thing more than ever: there is no way to get rid of disturbing spots and blemishes without properly cleaning your skin. I always do a double cleanse and switch between one of my favorites cleaning devices for the second cleanse, the Foreo Luna Mini and Clarisonic Aria. There are a bunch of cleaning devices on the beauty market these days and it can get quite challenging for us customers to decide which one…

I remember those times where I used to use one concealer for ages (you know, the Mac Studio Finish, a good old classic!) and never wanted to change it because I loved it so much. Well, it is funny to look back to those days because now I love to try different concealers all the time. I picked out the ones I love a lot recently, so let’s get started. Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener in Porcelain Peach 6 The tinted eye brightener is an under eye…
