GlossyBox Men Fall 2011


Hey everybody!

Today I want to show you the GlossyBox for Men. It is by the same provider as the monthly GlossyBox I always get.
It also works the same way. It is like a subscription and you can quit any time you want. The only difference is that you will receive a box only every three month, it will cost you 15€ but you will get at least six six samples. In this box there were even seven samples.
You can get more information here. (It's in German.)

I ordered two of these boxes for both of my brothers. Their birthdays are in October. Hope they like them...

Of course, I was just way too curious to find out what's in the boxes so I opened them!:-) Both had the same products in them.

I made a little video to show you guys the content:



What do you think about the box? Would you give it to your brother/boyfriend/husband?

Nail of the Day - p2 can't get enough

Hey eveybody!

Here is my how I did my NOTD.

I started, of course, with a base coat. Absolutely necessary with such a dark colour.
Then I applied p2 color victim nail polish in 691 can't get enough!:


Sorry for the flash...

As I usually put something different on my ring finger, I used the p2 pearl crackling coat in 030 red volacano.


So it looked like above. For me it was not sparkly enough, so I added another polish.

It is the essence nail art freestyle & tip painter in 10 more than silver.

As the tip painter has a very fine brush I put the colour everywhere but the cracks from the crackling coat.

This is the brush:



It's really easy to work with.



This is the finished design. Really glittery!

Nailpolish buys of this week

Hey guys!

This week I bought two new nail polishes.

Ther first one:


I made a swatch on my nail wheel. The colour is called 691 can't get enough. It is from the new colur range of p2.
The name of the colour reminds me of this song.:



The second polish is one of p2's new crackling coats:



The colour is called 030 red volcano.

Check back tomorrow as I will show you a NOTD with those two polishes.

Manhattan Oktoberfest LE Lipstick


Hey everybody!
Now, that the Oktoberfest has started I wanted to show one of the various lip colours of this LE.

It has this number:

Also, the packaging is really unique and sooo cute!






You just have to love the little heart bretzels! <3


This is the colour in the tube:



The one thing I don't like is the shape of the tip. It has angles on both side, instead of just one angle on one side. I haven't had a Manhattan lipstick in years but if I remember it correctly, all of the Manhattan lipstícks are shaped like that, aren't they?!
Well, anyway, I like the colour. That's most important. Take a look:



It's a nice silvery pink. Not very pigmented, so you can layer the colour. I think that's great because when your are drinking beer on the Oktoberfest or the Wasen in Stuttgart, the colour will fade evenly and you don't end up with something like this. (This will lead you to my review of the liptints. Scroll down to the fifth picture and you will know what I mean...)

In the next days I will show you a blush from this LE I bought.

Clinique chubby stick

Hey everybody!

Today I want to show one of the chubby sticks by Clinique. It is a moisturizing lip colour balm. Something I already know, but not in that form and not in that colour selection. The form is like a big pencil and there are six colours available. As all Clinique products are quite expensive, this one is no exception. The price is 19,-€. Which I luckily did not have to pay as my mum got this for her birthday.;-)




The colour is called 06 woppin' watermelon. (A little side note: Can somebody actually tell me what woppin' means? I tried to find the word but saw it nowhere.)

The application is fairly easy. The pigmentation is not very good as it is neither a lipstick nor a lip stain. You basically get a lip balm with colour.

Here's a swatch:

You see?! Just a  hint of colour.

Here is the colour on my lips:


I tried to build up the intensity, so I put a second coat on:


It is slightly darker but you have so much product on your lips, not nice...

Would I buy this? Yes, if I had extra money to spend. But I don't. As I said application is really easy and you can select between six shades.

Here you can take a look at the colours: English / German
As I just checked the English website, I discovered that there are actually eight colours available. On the German website there are only six.

Are you going to buy a chubby stick?

Red lips, Golden eyes

Hey everybody!

Yesterday I saw this look on glamour.com. It's a look Jennifer Hudson wore. As I love red lips I recreated the look. Here's my take on it!







I love this look! However, you should definitely only wear it if you feel good and you can rock this make-up. You will draw a lot of attention to yourself! :-)

Would you wear this look? What's your secret to make those red lips last all night long?

Burberry - Body

Hey everybody!

Today I received little package. I didn't order anything, so I knew it could only be one thing. The new parfum by Burberry. You were able to request a sample of this scent via Facebook. Definitely like their page and get one yourself!



This is the front and back of the card in the box.


And this is the sample. I can tell you, this scent is amazing. And it's long lasting. I have it on now for about 8 hours and I can still smell it.
"A warm and feminine fragrance enriched with an eclectic combination of sensual ingredients." This is from their Facebook page.
There are different sizes available. You can also get EdP and EdP intense which is even more concentrated. Here you can see the variety.


This is the campaign by Burberry. Thought I show you this, so you get an impression what the bottle looks like.

Robin Hood OST

Hey guys!

Look what I have found yesterday in a thrift store:


You wonder why I show you this?! Well, it is not a CD, it's a vinyl record, also called LP! I think that's pretty awesome! Luckily my parents still have a player.
At the store there were many records and when I saw this one, I was like, Bingo! I love Bryan and Adams and the movie Robin Hood.
I looked at the vinyl and it wasn't scratched, so I gave it a try. It was only 2 €.

This is the back:


And these are the songs on the record:


When I first listened to the record, I was like, wait, this is not Bryan Adams, this sounds more like Barry White. Then I realized I had to adjust the rotational speed. The record was too slow that's why the voice was Barry White-like. :-) I haven't used the player in such a long time...

Do you still own records?
