Haul Kosmetik Kosmo

Hi everybody!

I wanted to show you some products I bought from kosmetik-kosmo.de.

This is one of her eye shadow refills. It's in the colour creme and it was 3,99€.






The pigmentaion is really good. I use creme on my lid and then I use the brush you'll see next to put a matte brown in my crease.


This is the brush.


It is called "Bananen Babsi". It cost 5,75€. I have to say that I do not own any MAC or Sigma brushes. So I have no comparison. I think, a brush like this one does the job as well.

Next I want to show some Barry M. products. I have never owned something from Barry M. before, so I when I saw these on sale, I had to get them.



This is a lipstick in the colour Dolly Pink. It's quite neon but I only apply it with a lip brush which makes the colour less intense. It was 2,74€.



 I thought of using this pencil as an eye base. But honestly I always end up using it all over my lid. It's full name is Eye and Lip Crayon in Golden Bronze. It cost 2,99€.


This is the colour Lemon Ice Cream. Nice yellow, not neon. It cost 1,99€.

I am really happy with the things I got. You should definitely check out her store. Koko delievers to Germany and Switzerland. Not sure about Austria. The store is also great for getting your Sleek palettes. I got most of mine from Koko.

Lip Tints

Hey everybody!

Today I want to show you a comparison of two lip tints.

One is the Perfect Stay Transferproof Lip Tint & Care by Astor in the colour151 Blushing Rose.
The secon one is the Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstain.

Let's start with the Astor lip tint:

This is the packaging:


You apply the tint with a tip that looks like a felt pen. Really easy to use.

Here's a swatch of the colour:


I have to say that I was quite surprised that the colour looked that red. I mean blushing rose isn't that intense, at least that's what I thought.

So you basically paint in the colour and let it dry. Then you use the included balm and put that on your lips.

Your lips look then something like that:


Totally a deep red, not blushing rose.

These are the benefits according to Astor: Doesn’t transfer / Doesn’t rub off / Doesn’t smear

Sounds great. Right?!

Well, let me show you this:

Definitely not kiss-proof!



This is what you get when you drink out of a water bottle. I would say it transferred a lot! Not nice to look at!
You should probably skip the balm to make the colour last longer. But I haven't tried that.

Now to the Maybelline tint.

Here's the packaging:


It comes without a balm. And it smells really great. Like rasberry.

Here's a swatch of the two in comparison:


Tender Rose is only a hint darker and pinker than my natural lip colour.



Kiss-Proof?



Well, nearly.

Water-bottle test:


Colour transfers but the difference is not as evident as with the Astor lip tint.I think that is mainly due to the similarity to my natural lip colour.

If I had to choose between the two, I would opt for Maybelline. The results are better and if I recall this right, it was cheaper than the Astor. Something around 7€.

Hope this helped you! Leave a comment!

L'Oréal Super Liner Luminizer

Hey everybody!

You have most likely already heard/seen that L'Oréal is offering mascara and eye liner suited for your eye colour.
So when I walked in to Rossmann, another German drugstore, I saw that they had 20% off of all L'Oréal products. I bought an eye liner which cost something around 6€.  The original price is about 9€.

Here it is:



It is called Super Liner Luminizer in the colour Black Amethyst for Hazel Eyes. It is a dark brown which also has some purple in it. It really makes my eye colour stand out. The tip is not a brush but a felt tip which is nice.

For the swatches I used another Super Liner in the colour brown which I have now for quite some time.
It is this one:



On top of the two pictures is the plain brown liner and below is the one for Hazel Eyes:



I think the pictures show the difference quite well. When I run out of my current mascara I will definitly buy the mascara for Hazel Eyes.

Hope you liked it! As always comments are greatly appreciated!:-)

Douglas Haul II

Hello everybody!

Recently I watched Allisons, also known as amarixe on youtube, newest hair routine video. In this she mentioned the Bed Head Dumb Blonde series.
As I am always looking for new shampoo and conditioner, I looked online for Bed Head.
I found it on douglas.de. They have a set of shampoo and conditioner. They are both 750 ml. Huge!


As these bottles are gigantic I had to fill some of the product in smaller containers.



If you follow douglas on facebook you might know that there was a code for a CK one shower gel for free. This is full size:



Las but not least, you always get to choose two samples. I chose these:


I love Armani Code. Had this in full size but ran out if it. The Biotherm Eau Vitaminée does not smell very good. Maybe I should have chose another.

This is all I bought! Hope you liked it, leave a comment!
Nearly forgot. Do you want a full review on the Bed Head set? Let me know!

Nail of the Day X

Hello everybody!

This is my Nail of the Day. I used two coats of ANNYs ANNY in the sky and on my ring finger I used the golden crackle polish by p2.



The silver crackle polish by p2 would have looked nice, too. I took the ANNY polish from this set.
I like this look because it is so sparkly and soft.

What do you think?

essence nail transfer foil set

Hello everybody!

When I bought this set I was excited to see the holographic design on my nails. Well, little did I know...

That's how it works:



I did everything according to the instructions. This is the result:




So far, so good. I did this, I think, in the morning.
Look at this:


It looked totally disgusting in the evening. The foil rubbed off. Do you remember those temporary tatoos from your childhood? You put some water on them and they would stick to your skin. The foil felt like a week old temporary tatoo. Sticky and kind of slimy. Not really nice!

If you should see those foils somewhere, don't buy them. They are not worth the money.


What's your experience with those transfer foils? Leave me a comment and let me know!
