Would You Rather TAG - Beauty Edition


I recently was watching Tanja aka TanjaBurr's videos on Youtube and saw her do this cute Tag what seemed quite funny. I would love to do more Tag posts in the future so please let me know if you enjoyed this down below!

1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
I don't want to lose any of it! First I thought I would rather lose all of my palettes and eyeshadows because I couldn't live without mascara. But sooner I thought that I have to replace all my mascaras and eyeliners because they have a shorter shelf life than the most of my eyeshadows and palettes. So I would rather lose my mascaras, eyeliners and lipsticks!

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
If I would chop off all of my hair it would grow again, but if I let it grow and never be able to cut it again it would be awful to treat my hair, only imagine the tangles my curly hair would get into. But on the other side, my hair grows really slowly so I would rather never be able to cut my hair again.

3. Would you rather have coral cheek or a pink cheek?
I prefer to use coral blushes and with a coral cheek you could use nearly every lipstick, so I would rather have a coral cheek!

4. If you have had $1,000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Hard one! I love shopping clothes and makeup but probably I would spend all the money on makeup because I could buy all these high end brands that I normally don't use. :)

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
It would depend on the texture of the lipstick. If I would use a matte deep-colored lipsticks it could probably work but a shiny one?! That would so smudge. I can imagine using eyeliner as lipstick but only if the eyeliner isn't black but a pretty pink, nude or bronze color!

6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
I have some really awesome products from MAC but I love to try out new products! In Sephora there were so many brands I could try out!

7. Would you rather only use one eyeshadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?
I'm not really a lover of lipsticks or lipglosses and in my everyday I tend to use brown and bronze shades. I would have to say one eyeshadow color.

8. Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
I don't like being too hot because I get really fast sweaty so I would go with summer clothes in winter. I still could use cardigans and tights!

9. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year around?
Bright nails! I have a quite big nail polish collection. But just a few polishes are dark. I gravitate toward the light or bright colors much more!

10. Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
My favorite lip products at the moment are the Labello Fruity Shine Pink Guava and the Revlon Lip Butters. The choice of my favorite lip products change all the time, because there are so many out there that I want to try, but most of the time I put the lip balm or the lip stick in my bag and I never see it again! Unfortunately I lost my lip products really fast :( So I would rather give up my favorite lip product.

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
Whatever I do I can't do a messy bun. My hair is too curly or too long to put in a bun, all my hair ties broke immediately. So I would go with a ponytail!

12. Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip gloss?
Like I said on the top, I don't like to use lip gloss. I hate it when the wind blows and all my hair sticks on my lips. But I really like to use the Juicy Tubes Mood from Lancôme, they are amazing! I would go with never use lip gloss again!

13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
This question tops everything. I can imagine me without eyebrows. That would definitely look weird. But sharpie them in everyday? Is there even a sharpie out there with the perfect size? I think it's better without eyebrows than sharpie them everyday but I can't really answer this question. I've searched on google some pictures of people without eyebrows and other people with sharpie ones and I just can say: Look good after your eyebrows people! :)

14. Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
I would rather live without nail polish because I'm more attached to my makeup but  I have to say I also could live without makeup but who would want to! :)


So that's it! I answered the all the questions. I had really fun doing this and I would love to read your TAG. So if you did this TAG or any other I would love to hear about! Have a nice day. xx

Essence Longlasting Lipstick | Review and Swatches

Hello! So today I want to introduce you to one of my favourite lipsticks that I've been using in fall time A LOT - the Essence longlasting lipstick in the colour 04 on the Catwalk!
If I should describe this lipstick in one word I would say - AMAZING! This lipstick is one of the ten available colours of their new longlasting Lipstick collection. I bought this lipstick at the thought of using it during fall time.
Packaging
I'm sure you can see from the image above just how wonderful this lipstick is.
It comes in a pretty discreet black matte packaging with a thin line in the colour of lipstick all around. The label with the name is also in the same colour as the lipstick. If you turn the lipstick out you can see the well-known "E" stamped.

Formula/Texture
First I thought this lipstick would be really heavy as a colour. But applying it on my lips it covers my lips without looking too heavy and harsh. Sadly it doesn't stay very long about 2-3 hours on me, but I don't mind reapplying it. I would recommend using a lip liner in addition.

Colour
Like I said above - the lipstick is available in 9 other colours from a classic red to a pretty cotton candy colour. I picked up the 04 - On The Catwalk! which is a pretty dark red with a burgundy undertone. I wasn't expecting it to look so well on the lips because first I thought it would be a bit too dark. It was quite the contrary!

Price
I bought this lipstick for CHF 3.37 here in Switzerland what is really cheap I think for such a pretty lipstick.
I did a bit of research about where you can buy Essence Makeup and find out that Essence just launched in the UK. From this month Essence Makeup will be available in several Wilkinson stores!
What I think
This is a really good, definitely not pricey drugstore lipstick which I recommend to everyone. I'm looking forward to buy other colour from their Essence Longlasting Lipstick Collection.

The Round-Up
Pros:
 - The subtle red and burgundy undertones with addition to dullness makes it more wearable      dark red lipstick 
 - It's great for every day use.
 - not pricey at all

Cons:
 - The lasting power is quite short - it doesn't last longer than a couple of hours ( I recommend     use a lip liner before applying the lipstick.

Have you tried a Essence lipstick? What do you think?What is your favourite lipstick for fall? Let me know!

Fresh New Start


Friends,

I hope you started well in the month of September. I think this year went by so fast and I can still not believe that fall is just around the corner.
lovely sunrise in the morning  - took this while biking to school :)
I have had that big post swimming around in my head to write to you, explaining all the reasons I keep trying to post here. To tell you the truth the last few weeks I've been feeling exhausted. During the months of June and July I blogged a lot. I was in that blogging routine.
Take photos - research - write post - publish. And I did this two or three times a week and didn't feel stressed or something like that. And now as I started school I have lots of things to do. That's not an excuse to not blog. The last few weeks I had kind of a blogger's break.
I sat down but nothing came - I couldn't write.

But know I'm here - writing this post that was flowing in my head for quite a while now and that I decided to write now. I'm trying to post once or twice week in the next time. Reviews, photographs, OOTD's, DIY's or even just talk to you (what I really enjoy :D). What would you like to read?
But for now a huge THANK YOU for the friends you have been and letting me be in that Blogging Community!

Makeup and Skin Care August Favourites

Hello darlings, I wish you all a peaceful sunday. I can not belive that it's already September. Summer got by so fast that we're nearly in fall. Actually fall is one of my favourite seasons of the year so I'm pretty excited to wear sweaters again and pull my hair back when it's windy! So with further talking... it's time for my monthly favourites.
So this month it was all about skin care and makeup. The Porefessional  - Benefit is the primer I've been using for the last couple of weeks. What I like about it is the size. Earlier I went on holidays so it's the perfect size to carry in the makeup bag. I don't own many primers that help me minimize the appearance of pores but this one from Benefit surely does. I've noticed that my pores aren't as visible as they were before using this primer.

I'm not quite a fan of drugstore moisturizers because of my really oily and acne skin. So for the last couple of years I've only been using a moisturizer that my dermatologist has recommend me. But I wanted to try a drugstore moisturizer. So I came across the Bebe Young Care cream for normal skin. It's great for medium dry skin as it doesn't leave an oily film on your face. The scent is really like this one smells of peach but I would prefer a bit a softer scent. But for a cheap drugstore cream this is really good!

I was in the market searching for a concealer and came across the  Maybelline Super Stay 24H Concealer. I been using this product for about two months now and it lasted for quite a while. This concealer is quite cheap and it comes in a lipgloss jar, so you only need a bit of it. I used this concealer as a preparation to my Estée Lauder concealer to cancel out dark circles.

I mentioned this YSL Rouge Volupté Lipstick in Impetuous Beige 107 a while ago and it's still one of my favourite lipsticks for summer. I leave you the link here if you want to read the whole review.

The Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector is the BB cream I've used during my holidays. When I'm on holidays I tend to put less makeup on. But still I can't go without BB Cream. This BB cream is not too heavy but still gives colour and a bit of coverage. I'm looking forward to review it for you this month!

And last but not least the Lipo Sol  Cleansing Lotion from Louis Widmer. My dermatologist recommend me this a while ago for my oily and acne-prone skin. It's a lovely cleanser that goes on my face gently and leaves it soft and really refreshed. I use it twice - in the morning and before I go to bed. I'm going to review this for you probably next month because I highly recommend this cleanser!


Ever tried one of these products? Let me know what your beauty and skin care favourites were! Have a nice day! xx
