Monthly Favourites | May


Hi, Everyone! I have a little selection of gems that I've been using this month and that I'd like to share with you all...

Catrice - Long Lasting Eye Liner Pen
This product from Catrice accompained me through this whole month. I usally use a black kajal or eye liner. But I wanted to try something different so I bought this in the color 060 - Midnight Blue. It's a really nice color and I'm happy with it. It's not too dark and it has little sparkles in it. Plus I can wear it a whole day and it doesn't smudge.

Manhatten - Soft Compact Powder Natural Look
I bought acutally a while ago when I wanted a new skinfinish. First I thought the colour (Teint Chocolat  - 9 ) is a bit darker but it's actually the right colour. Unfortunatly I can't remember the price but I know it wasn't expensive.

Estée Lauder - Pure Colour EyeShadow
This was a present from a close friend to my birthday. The little Eye Shadow Palette was in a kit. Unfortunatly I don't remeber the name of it. It has 5 different colours. 2 Satin, 1 Shimmer and 2 Matte colours. I like to use this when I go to school because all of this colours are really pretty and they don't look "too much". I always have this in my makeup bag.

Maybelline New York - ColorSensational Cream Closs
This is a product that I've been using for a while. The color is 360 - Stellar Berry.
It's a really nice color with little sparkles in it. It smells like Berry (I think) and I LOVE berries.
It's not this dark like you see in the picture. When you put it on your lips it's a red with a browny undertone. I'm going to buy another one the 015 - Born with it.

Lancôme  Trésor - IN LOVE
This is the fragrance that I've been using for years now. I absolutly love the smell of it but I really can't describe what it smells like ( weird I know). 
I recommend you to go to a perfumery and try it there. :)

VICHY LABORATOIRES - Normaderm
This is a Try-Active Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care.
I'm using this product since about 2 years. I went to a pharmacy and because I wanted something against Acne. They recommended this facial cream. And it really helped!
I put it on my face in the morning and leave it there. Another positiv thing is that also hydrated your skin. I recommend this to everyone who suffers from acne or other skin imperfections.

So there we have it, the products I've been loving. What have you been loving recently?

Nail Polish of the Week | Prussian Blue

Hi, Everyone!


So this week's nail polish is a bit a darker one. I used the MaXFactor Mini Nail Polish - 37 Prussian Blue.  It's not a typical spring/summer nail polish but I love it anyway.
The positive side of this nail polish is that it dries very fast. I'm really impatient when it comes to wait that a nail polish dries.
I'm looking forward to use a bit a brighter nail polish next week :)

Review | Benefit How To Look The Best At Everything Kit


Benefit Cosmetics released last fall (2012) the cutest complexion kit ever.





The Benefit How To Look The Best At Everything kit contains everything you need to a flawless base. I've been trying this kit for about 2 weeks now and it's amazing!

How To Look The Best At Everything Kit


Tips and Tricks 

This kit looks like book volumes and is perfect for traveling, with Tips and Tricks built in to the mirror.




This kit contains:
the Porefessional: a primer balm that instantly erases pores and shine. It's kind a miracle balm. One of my favourite products ever! I recommend it!
Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW Brightening Makeup: This is the liquid foundation from Benefit. I like this product because it covers with a luminous and natural finish.
Boi-ing: The kit contains two different shades to cover dark circles, blemishes and other imperfections. You can blend both shades to create the custom match to your foundation.
Hello Flawless Powder: the powder foundation in Champagne with the included little brush.





The light kit (which is my match) includes the Hello Flawless foundation and powder in Champagne (a bit a yellow undertone) as well Boi-ing shades 01 and 02


What I like on this product is that I can keep it in my bag or take it on a holiday. It looks like a book, what I think it looks really cute. I actually bought this to try out a few Benefit products. And like I said every of these products in this kit are amazing. It's worth it!
This kit is available in Light, Medium and Deep.

Price: $30.00 / £25.50 / CHF 52.50

Rating (1 to 10): 10

What is your favourite Benefit product? Do you recommend any other product from Benefit?

Nail Polish of the Week | Orange Cosmos

Hi, Everyone!

This week I used the nail polish  from ASTOR Fashion Studio - 237 Orange Cosmos.
It's a really bright orange/coral colour.
I love this nail polish, because it dries very fast and it stays extra long.
The colour is perfect for spring and summer.

So we decided to do a shooting. This one in the picture is my lovely friend :)

Inspirational Wednesday

 Hi, Everyone!
How is your Wednesday doing?
Leave you with an inspiration today.

I love this quote. This is basically what I always believe in.
Lately, however, I've been feeling a bit sore, it's because I know I haven't been living by it.
For a while now, I am scared to move on because  I've been hurt by a close friend of mine and I've been telling myself that without this friend I would be nothing. 
For me this quote is about being in the moment. Being in a beautiful and happy moment surronded by people you love and knowing that, this moment wil soon come to an end, be nothing but a memory.
But you're not ready for this moment to end. You want to stay. You want to froze this moment in. You don't want leave this moment, this place, this people...
But you can feel it slowly slipping away. It's like the wind is carrying you forward and you are trying to work both against and towards it.

So live your life, don't be scared to move on, don't tell yourself that without someone you would be nothing because you know what? YOU are amazing and you deserve nothing but the best. Just because you have been hurt once, it doesn't mean that you can't get what you want, no one can be too good for anyone. Don't let your fear of rejection stop you from getting what you want. 
Anyway, I'm sounding a bit depressing now and that's not what I want at all!

I leave you with a song to inspire you a bit :)

Something about my hair

Hi, Everyone!

 I want to show you my hair before and after I straight my hair with a straightener.


On the left you can see my natural brown hair. It's a kind of wavy and curly hair.
On the right you see my hair when it's straight.

I like to wear my hair curly, because I think it looks a bit better. Maybe a little bit wilder?
But it's really difficult to treat my natural curly hair. I usually wash my hair before I go to sleep. Then I make a bride, because my mother says, since childhood, that it's better for your hair and it grows faster. I think it results :) I wash my hair with the Pantene Pro-V Repair & Care Shampoo and the Shampoo from L'Oréal Paris Elseve - Liss-Intense. Both are really good shampoos and I can comb my hair easier after washing my hair with them.



My mother prefers when my hair is straight. She thinks I look more mature.
I can't straight my hair everyday because i haven't got that time and it's really bad for your hair even if you use a Heat Protection spray. I use and would recommend the  Franck Provost Heat Protection spray. It protects your hair really good, only minus the smell. It's hideous...

I went shopping...

       Hi, Everyone!

I went shopping in MANGO yesterday and I bought some awsome clothes for springtime
and summertime :)

I bought this GORGEOUS dress in MANGO. I love the shape, the fabric and the colour. It's a kind of beige- white colour. I can not wait to wear this in spring and summer :) And it came with a brown belt. The lenght is also ok. It comes a bit up till my knee. The price was 49.90Francs. This is $59.99 or £34.99. I think this is actually a good price for such a suuper cute dress.



Next is a pink shirt from MANGO Casual.

It has a zipper in the front and it's also a bit shorter.
I love the colour and the shape and I think it looks super cute!

Also in MANGO I saw this suuper cute shirt. I felt instantly in love.
It's a soft-rose colour and I think it looks amazing with my dark-brown curly hair.


On the top it has little brown polka dots. This is also suuper cute :)
What do you think?
