beauty essentials

Today I wanted to share some of my personal beauty essentials. So without further ado:

1. Kiehl’s – Ultra Facial Moisturizer (for all skin types)
I heard and read a lot about Khiel’s, so I decided to give this one a try. It’s a good product, although the texture is just a little bit too heavy for my liking.
2. Manhattan – BB Cream (Beauty Balm)
I like to have just a little bit of color for everyday, so I normally go for a tinted cream.
3. Yves Saint Laurent – Touche Éclat
I just love this one! Read my whole review here.
4. Catrice – Calligraph (Ultra Slim Eyeliner Pen Waterproof)
For my everyday makeup I like a really thin line, so this eyeliner is just perfect, also it stays on and doesn’t smudge.
5. Catrice – Better Than False Lashes (Volume Mascara Waterproof)
One of those mascaras, that intensifies your lashes, but still lets them look kind of natural. 😀
6. Labello – Lip Butter Original
My lips tend to get really dry, so this one is a must!
7. Tangle Teezer – Compact Brush
Best brush I had so far. Read my whole review here.

What are your beauty essentials?

the perfect nail polish color for fall

As it is getting colder here in Germany, I’m getting really excited for fall and all the changes in fashion and beauty that come with it. Just think of all those warm and cozy sweaters! The coming months are the perfect time for wearing dark and rich colors.

Matching to this time of the year I bought this nail polish by catrice in the color “38 Vino Tinto”.

I think it is just perfect for those grey, rainy days or for catching the last warm sun rays!

Manhattan – Eyemazing Effect Eyeshadow

Some days ago I found a limited edition of the Eyemazing Effect Eyeshadow by Manhattan.

I got it in the color “003 traffic jam”, which is perfect for a romantic, but dramatic look.

The texture is highly pigmented and slightly creamy, which gives you an intense color.

I also got the normal version in “rosy wood 95C” and “got the blues 71W”. Sadly they are not as highly pigmented as the special edition, but I already bought them some time ago, so I think by now the texture has changed to a creamier one, just like the limited edition. Either way you can always use a wet brush to intensify the color.

I especially love the rosy wood pallet for my everyday look!

Most times I finish off the look with a very thin eyeliner line and some mascara. Also I would always recommend to use an eye primer before applying your eyeshadow. I’m using the Eyeshadow Base by Manhattan at the moment.

product review: L’Oréal Paris – Öl Magique

Today I wanted to share a hair product with you, which I have been using for quite some time now and which I really love!

It’s the “Elvital Öl Magique” from L’Oréal Paris. I have the one that is suitable for every hair type, but there are also specific ones for fine, dry and colored hair.

Every time I use it my hair feels much softer afterwards. If I use it regularly, my hair looks more healthy and shiny.

Usually I just put it in my ends and spread the rest that’s left upwards, but if my hair needs some extra care I also give a bit in the rest of my hair. On the packaging they recommend to use 3-4 pumps for your whole hair. I think that’s a good amount.

A big plus point is the price. It’s around 7/8 €.

And I think it also smells incredibly good of herbs and flowers.

Have you used this product? Or which ones do you use?

nail polish #5

This nail polish color I bought recently isn’t really a summer one. Nonetheless I really like it! Especially if you go out in the evening I think it’s great.

The color is called “59 First Class Up-Grape” from catrice.

I thought the color would actually turn out a bit lighter. Still I like the color.

Catrice is one of my favorite nail polish brands, because the quality is really good at the price! I already wrote about another color here. I also like the new brush they have added. It really felt a bit easier to apply it.
