Let’s start with nail polish.

OPI – Lincoln Park After Dark 2in1 | NOTD

Hey guys,

hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Mine was nice, spend some time with my family and relatives. Now that Christmas is over, it’s time to think about New Years Eve. Do you already know what you’ll be wearing? Well, I don’t. But here is an idea for your nails.

I started out with two coats of Lincoln Park After Dark. I got the miniature version in a GlossyBox. I never really tried the colour, so I thought it was about time.

L’Oréal Shine Caresse Gloss–Romy

Hey everybody,

the Shine Caresse line is the newest one by L’Oréal. It is a mix between a lip gloss and a lip stain.

Unbenannt-1

The colour I bought is called 102 Romy. It cost about 10 €. Quite expensive for a drugstore product, yet absolutely worth it. I especially love the applicator. I think all glosses by L’Oréal look like that.

Unbenannt-2

Above you can see that the gloss contains no sparkles. It only gives you that wet look on your lips. After the shine is gone, you are left with a stain on your lips.

This is my favourite lip gloss at the moment. I am probably going to buy another colour. Maybe a berry colour.

Did you get one of the colours? Can you recommend one?

Wet n Wild palettes | Buys

Hey guys,

I have shown you already the polish I bought from Wet n Wild. Today it's time for the eyeshadow palettes I bought. Let's start with the more natural one.


This is  the Walking On Eggshells palette. As you can see, very natural colours. The browbone colour is a very light pink. The crease colour is a glowy bronze and the eyelid one is a nicely pigmented dark powder pink. Love the colours! Really perfect for everyday!
Here the swatches:

From left to right: browbone - crease - eyelid

The second palette I bought is one for a more dramatic look, although you could go light with it. It is the lust palette. Lots of dark purples in there.

This is a palette with six eyeshadow. The left side of the palette is matte and the right side contains shimmer/sparkles.

On the left - matte / on the right - shimmer / both from lightest to darkest
Most of the colours are really creamy, only the lighter colours are a bit dusty. But not so much that is gets annoying.
Overall, some very good shadows for a price that you can't beat.
If you want to know where to get Wet n Wild stuff in Germany check out this post by Frau Shopping.

Wet n Wild–Sparked | NOTD

Hey everybody,
haven’t done a NOTD in while, have I?
When I found out that Wet n Wild had added  some colours to their range that were usually only in the US available, I had to find the nearest seller, which is in my case a super market. I bought a couple of things. But today it is all about a nail polish.

Manhattan – Lollipop & Alpenrock | Sexy Madl

Hey guys,

I know, it’s been a while since my last post but I was gone for a week and then I totally had no ambition to work on some pictures. Well, I am back now and I have loads to show you.

As you all probably know it is soon time for the famous Oktoberfest in Munic and the Canstatter Wasen in Stuttgart. This inspired Manhattan to do this little palettes which contain concealer, blush, and a lipgloss. There are a couple of colour to choose from. The colour I bought is called Sexy Madl, which means Sexy girl.

Tinted chapstick comaprison

Hey everybody,

as it is in style to wear sheer lip colours, I think tinted chapsticks are a great alternative to buying sheer lipsticks.

I had a couple of them laying around so I thought I’d do a little comparison. They are all different regarding colour pay off.

Z-palette combination | August

Hey everybody,

the last couple of months I put together a small Z-palette for my everday eye shadows and I thought, why not show it to you guys. To make it more interesting I switch up some eye shadows every month. Either with  ones I got brand new or I haven’t used in a while. Here is the combination I am currently using.

p2 - Spices & Herbs LE | Buys

Hey everybody,

I've seen a new LE when I went shooping last week. It is the Spices & Herbs LE by p2. When I saw the preview, I was a little disappointed cause it looked rather unspectacular compared to the pretty What's up? Beach Babe LE. Anyway I swatched some products and was kind of amazed. The blushes and the eye shadows were really pigmented and buttery. I have not posted the preview yet but will do that as soon as possible. Here is what I bought:

TheBodyNeeds.com MAC lipstick order

Hey guys,
when I read last month on a blog about the service this website offers I couldn't believe I had never hear of it before. On TheBodyNeeds.com you can order little samples of MAC products. I think that is AMAZING. I could never get myself to pay so much for MAC products without ever trying them at home.
