Beauty Haul

Hello everyone,

It's been quite a while since my last post and I'm really sorry for that. I wrote this one a few weeks ago, but I just couldn't really finish it,
But now I just want to sit down and write about some of my new beauty products I bought during the "after-christmas-time". I tested them now for a few weeks and I'll let you know my own opinion. So here we go :)

The first product I want to mention is the tinted moisturizer from NARS. It feels so soft on your skin and it's perfect for a daily make up look, because it doesn't cover too much, but still covers most of your rednesses. I really wanted to test this product for so so long, because a lot of youtuber recommend it and I never had a product from nars before. I can say that it's perfect for you if you aren't looking for something withnreally high coverage, but a nice and even skin look for an every day look. I love to apply it with my new real technique brush, because it's very soft and makes it super easy to blend the products nicely.

These five bad boys were on sale and I just had to buy them haha. I didn't wear lipsticks a lot, but I really like this set of lip pencils from NARS, because you can blend them nicely to create a very natural look and now since I have them I started to wear lipstick more often. Yaay.
I really like all of the colours, but I think my favourite is the dark red one, because it's just perfect for the cold days.

Before I had the studio sculpt concealer of mac and I think it lasted for around half a year (that's really good I think), but for Christmas I got a new one. It's the studio finish concealer of mac and I don't really see a big difference. I like both a lot and if you have trouble with dark circles (like me!!) give it a go. It's just perfect :)

My next product is a very special one for me. It's my first Chanel Charme lipstick in the shade rouge coco 40. I love how it moisturizes your lips and also gives them a very nice creamy colour. I really think it's the best and most beautiful lipstick I ever tested or had.

I think for a lot of people it's just normal to buy these things, but for me it's something special and I'm always so happy about new beauty products and I just love to test them and write about it, that's why I wrote this blog post and I think a lot of girls can totally understand this hahaa

 Hope you have a great time, see you soon xx

Rouge Edition Velvet Bourjois Lipgloss Review

Hello everyone! 
So it's been a while hasn't it? Apologies for that! I needed a bit time off because there were quite a lot of things I needed to figure out (and part I blame the series Broadchurch; it's so good, I just can't idgfk!!)

Today I'm writing about the Rouge Edition Velvet lipgloss from Bourjois. I heard so many people raving about these that when I spotted one I needed to try it immediately. And as so many people loved  and praised it I had quite high expectations. But to be honest I was a bit disappointed when I first tried it. What fist caught my attention was this weird smell of paint for walls and I can't say I'm fond of it or I'm getting attached to it.
The lipgloss/lipstick has a creamy texture and is super pigmented. I think I have rarely seen a more pigmented lipgloss. The formula stays on super long and even defys every food and liquids surprisingly well. I must say better than any lipstick I ever used.
What I'm struggling with is the texture of this product. At fist it's super creamy and after application it kind of "dries" and it feels like another thin skin laid over your lips. It turns matt and when you would touch your lips the color doesnt't come off . Which is a good thing in deed as it helps it staying longer put but it's just such a weird feeling. And to add especially during winter my hole body dries out so easily and this lipgloss didn't found to be moisturizing at all. And after a while it annoys me so much that most times I whip it away.
Maybe I'm being a bit selective and and a real nitpicker haha (is this word used?) but that's my thoughts on it. What are yours? :) I'd love to know! Maybe I'm just doing something wrong haha.

Hoped you enjoyed it and until soon

Rebecca :)

Urban Decay Palette 2 Review

So it's been a while since I posted but it has been a really busy time and I had so many things to do I just could not find time to sit down and relax to write..

Last week we recently got the brand Urban Decay in my Country (which took so long!!), and of course I had a little look around the counter and instantly fell in love with all of their products and I wanted to buy the hole range. But of course I didn't win in the lottery, I don't have piles of gold lying around my house and I do not possess magical powers to conjure some so I had to restrain myself and chose one thing. I opted for the Urban Decay Palette 2.

I had quite a struggle wether I want the first, second or third one because, lets be honest they are all amazing!
The colors are amazing pigmented and super builtable. I loved that the second pallet and contains colors for your everyday makeup but also to create a smoky going-out  look.
The colors are more on the glittery side, what I really like as I am into glittery colors at the moment but there are some matt colors too.
With the pallet you get a free brush with on one side  large and and on the other side smaller bristles and they have a super quality! 

I can only highly recommend this palette and it is totally worth its price and also it makes a super nice present for the ones you love :) 

I hope you will have a great week, lovely holidays
and enjoy watching christmas movies ;) (currently watching "the grinch") 

until soon :)

Winter Breakfast

Hey you,

As I was sitting in my kitchen eating breakfast today I thought, why not share it with you. Hahaa that sounds so interesting ;) But yes, I love a good and healthy breakfast in the morning and of course no one has enough time to do something soo special or hard when it's probably about 7 am.

So that's why I wanted to show you what's my favourite breakfast at the moment ! I think it's so so yummy and I can't get enough of it, but after one good bowl I really feel full and I won't be hungry until after school and that's actually quite rare for me haha.

I didn't told you yet, but ok maybe it's the reson why I like it that much.. It's christmasy !! And come on what's better than getting in Christmas mood before you are really awake.

I start with chopping half an apple in small slices. And that's really the longest part of the whole thing. Now you just have to put your favourite cereals and a bit of honey into your bowl. On top I always sprinkle some cinnamon. Actually quite a lot because I love cinnamon. It tastes like pure Christmas !! And as an extra tipp: I think it all tastes the best with almond milk and it's a lot healthier than using normal milk :)

Maybe it sounds quite simple, but give it a go and you'll see it's so so good.

Hope you liked this post and see you soon

It's all about Lush isn't it?

Hello everyone!

Currently I have been doing a little bit of shopping, which i mainly mean having a splurge in Lush.
The new collection has been released so as soon as possible I found myself wandering between piles of wonderful smelling bath bombs and bubble baths. And of course I did purchase more than I really needed and of course I'm going to share them with you. And yes, hold your breath, they are all mostly Christmas themed haha :)
So lets get into it!

Fist things first I grabbed on of the Lush Christmas classics which is the "So white" bath bomb.
It smells amazing, feels amazing when you come out of the bath and I'm  repurchase it over and over again every year. It's a subtle and light scent of apples and other smells I can't really describe, so if You aren't much of a fan of heavy and strong scents, this is Your bomb! And again it's a classic and a must-have for every Christmas-time.

Next one is probably the smallest bath bomb I have every seen. It's called "Cinders", which always reminds me of Cinderella haha. I think this bath bomb  has been in stock for a while now every year but I have never really bothered smelling it. But this year I did, and oh my God it smells so nice! I literally want to eat it. This smell is a little bit stronger than the previous one and not for everyone as it smells like a mixture of cinnamon and honey and a typical Christmas scent I can't identify t the moment. So it's definitely worth a sniff :).

Now to the more Christmasy ones. The first one is of course "Father Xmas" which is kind of a classic too. This bath bomb is just a must-have for e during winter time and it always gets me into a festive mood even when I'm scattered and sad. Again smells amazing, feels amazing when you come out of the bath AND this year they managed to make him look much more like Santa compared to last year haha :)

Next one is probably the cutest one out of my collection. It's the "melting snowman" and basically it's so hard to put him in the bath. I mean look at his face!! This bath bomb smells literally like a cinnamon stick, so if you don't like cinnamon i would not recommend this as the scent is quite strong, but if you do it's a duty to give it a go! :) And I mean, who can resist this cute little face??

Last one (and also the most christmasy one) is the "holly go lightly" bubble bath and let me put out there this thing is so much heavier and bigger than it looks so you can use it multiple times. Again super christmasy. It has a mistletoe on it and a LOT of silver glitter. Lush do love their glitter on their bathing devices I have to admit haha :). Take the scent of a christmas tree, candles, cinnamon, baked apples and christmas treats and boom here you have the smell that describes this bubble bath. So basically it smells like christmas.

I hope You enjoyed my quick Lush haul and I hope it got you into a christmas spirit even though it's only November (You can ever start early enough haha)

Till next time :)

My 5 favourite nailpolishes

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry to upload this post on a Wednesday instead of Sunday, but I had a lot to do and now I'm sick, but I just had a little time to write.. So I'll begin now ;)

As it's curently gettin colder and everybody starts to wear the most comfortable sweaters, also my favourites are changing. I'm not one of these girls, who are wearing nailpolish everyday, but I love to have them just in case I want to sit down and make my nails. 

I was looking through all of them and I picked the one's I would wear at the moment and here we go...

I want to start with the two of Catrice Cosmetics-Ultimate Nudes.
 "040 Petit Four As Dessert" is a light brown with a bit of shimmer and I think It's a really good colour for autoumn and if you don't like brigth nailpolishes. 
"01 Karl says très chic" is also nude, but more of a rose colour and I like it, because I think this colour is quite rare, but fits to a lot of clothes.

The other three are from Essie and I bought them all together in one of these little packages last year, so maybe you won't find exactly the same, but probably quite similar ones. 
"282 Shearling darling" is such a nice burgundy colour and I think it's my all time favourite! I love it for this time of the year.
"285 Toggle to the top" is quite similiar to the one before, but eith a lot of glitter in it. I think it's maybe too much to wear it to school for example but I like it on my ringfingers with the other burgundy colour of Essie on the other fingers :)
"284 Parka perfect" is greeny gray colour with a bit of shimmer and I really like wearing it at the moment, because it reminds me of the shimmer of snow everytime I look at it.

At the moment I'm not wearing any nailpolish, but after writing this I'm quite sure I will pplish my nails haha..

Hope you liked the post and see you next time

The Autumn Tag

Hello everyone,

First we want to say thanks to Lulu.B xox for tagging us :) We both really like autumn so we were really happy about it. So let's get started:

1) Favorite Thing about autumn?

Rebecca: hmm there are so many things! baths, sweaters, candles, pumpkins, but I think the one thing I love the most is seeing the leaves changing colors. The world looks so colorful and cosy. Everything looks so peaceful and harmonious.
Catrin:  I would say the nature - because it changes a lot in this time of the year and I love looking outside the window and seeing the leaves turning red, brown or orange.

2) Go to makeup product during autumn?
Rebecca: Everything dark and plumy colored! I am obsessed with darker makeup shades during autumn. Currently I 've been using the Rimmel Lipstick in number 330 which is called sloane's plum or the Maybelline Color Elixir in number 135 (LOVE them).
Catrin: That's quite hard for me.. I really like dark red lipsticks as well, but I don't really wear them  often, so for me my go to makeup product is the eyeshadow called 'gorgeous gold' from mac. I especially like it in combination with dark brown colours.

3) Favorite food/drink during autumn?
Rebecca: favorite drink is definitely the pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks (obsessed at the moment) or a good old hot chocolate ;)
Catrin: Definately green tea at the moment. I found one with lime and elder. Soooo good !! My favourite food is probably my Dad's pumpkin soup. Mhmm..

4)Favorite shop during autumn?
Rebecca: my all time favorite is Lush. During autumn and winter time Lush is just a must-have for me!  
I have more baths plus the autumn/winter collections are always the nicest. Recently I have been loving River Island too. They have a really nice autumn collection. Definitely worth having a look. 
Catrin: hmm.. I'm actually not sure, but I think I love going through all the decoration shops in autoumn. There's so much to see and sometimes there's even Christmas deco already. Yaaay haha

5)Favorite autumn scent?
Rebecca: The smell when you are standing in the woods when all the leaves are falling down. (And Perfume-wise I'm loving the fragranced body mist from the Zoella range, not a autumnal scent but really lovely).
Catrin: Normally I prefer the summery scents, but I got the 'Coco Noir' parfume of Chanel and I think it's perfection. I love how it smells and that it stays a long time. 

6)One word that sums up autumn for you?
Rebecca: cosy!!
Catrin: colourful :)

7) Inside or outside during autumn?
Rebecca: When it's not raining definitely outside!
Catrin: Same as Rebecca :) But inside in front of the window with a cup of tea.
