M.A.C Mineralize SPF 15 Foundation

Hey there!
Last week I got myself the M.A.C Mineralize SPF 15 Foundation! And I just really love this foundation, 'cause it's so easy to apply it and it gives me that coverage that I want, which is: looking fabulous with make up, but not feeling of having it on =) great, heh? xD

So the package looks like this.

For myself I got the NC20, which perfectly matches my skin tone! This foundation comes with a sponge applicator (which I probably never going to use xD). I tried to put it on with my 188 brush, but I think the fibers of this brush are a little too long! So I'm going to get myself the new 130 brush, which was made for this foundation I think.
It looks like this:

The feeling on my skin, after applying it is like after I put moisturizer on =) a little creamy feeling!
What are your experiences with this foundation?

And here just a short comment on the Maybelline the colossal volum' Express mascara:
I LOVE IT! =) Never had longer and fuller looking lashes than with this mascara!

And happily I found a bag for my "wedding day dress" xD I saw it in a Mango store and bought it. It is in the style of the famous chanel 2.55 bag! <3

Love you all,

M.A.C Haul: Spring Colour Forecast + Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express

Hey there!
I had my date with my M.A.C Girl from Douglas! I was soooooo excited about this collection! She asked my, which colour of the 4 I would like to test. And I had to choose between the colour 3 (which is everything with violets and purples) and the colour 4, which was really on the sunny side xD
So here is my stuff I got from the colour 4:

The lipstick in Beigeland (Frost)
The eyeshadow quad with Manila Paper (VP), Flip (F), Aztec Brick (VP), Creole Beauty (F)
The blush ombre in Ripe Peach  (wich is from the colour 2)
And the sheertone blush (wich is not from the collection) in Blushbaby.

I love everything about this whole collection! If I were rich, I probably had bought everything!! xD But I told myself: you just CAN'T have everything you want. And I mean, M.A.C is bringing so many collections out in a short period of time! Better save some money for the next ones ;-)

I also got myself the Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express Mascara (that's a long name!!) and I really like it! I'm going to do an review on that one :-)

Are you excited about the collection as much as I am?? xD What would you like (or going) to purchase??

Looking for the best: Mascara!

Hey there!
Probably like every girl, I'm still looking for my holy grail mascara xD So I just wanted to ask you guys, to tell me, which mascara do you like the most and why.

The best I have been using so far was the Nivea Volume Impact Mascara! It really defines my lashes and gives length. The one I wouldn't recommend at all is the Diorshow Iconic Mascara! (One of my "regret buying") It clumps my lashes really bad! :-S

So yeah, I would be so happy if you would post a comment or a Blog response to my "looking for the best: Mascara".

Tag Response: 5 M.A.C Must-Haves!

Hey there!
So Tammy asked her bloggers what their 5 M.A.C Must Haves are. So here are mine. My Must-haves in: eyeshadows, concealer, brush, paint pot and lipstick.

Eyeshadows: (there can't be just one! xD) Naked Lunch and Satin Taupe are my Must-haves!

Concealer: I have only one, but it gives me the coverage that I need for my dark circles! It's the Select Cover Up in NW20.

Brush: I love the 217! Definitely a must have in your brush collection!

Paint Pot: I love the Paint Pot in Bare Study! I put it on if I don't have much time for my make up!

Lipstick: I love my new one Cream in your coffee! But I have to admit, that I'm not a big lipstick junky! ;-)

What are your favorite 5 Make Up Must haves? (It doesn't have to be from M.A.C)

my new favorite shop: asos!!

Hey there!
I know, june is still far away but that's the time my boyfriends cousin is going to get married! So I decided to get my dress and I ordered it on asos.com, which really has cute dresses! And today, the package arrived. Of course I ordered 2 more things, which where a pair of shoes and another daily dress.
So here is the picture of my dress for the wedding:

I love it! It fits so well and looks gorgeous with these shoes:


And this is my jersey dress, which is just great!

Aw *_* I'm so happy with my purchase! Have you ever bought something on asos.com? Let me know! <3

Long time no see...

Hey there!
I have really been a lazy blogger! Sorry! But instead of writing a whole apologizing text I just go forward =) I ordered amazingly stuff on lookfantastic.com! Here my new stuff:

And I have totally to admit, Youtube made me do it! The first time I ever heard of the Urban Decay Primer Potion was on youtube =) So as benefit and O.P.I Drip Dry! xD And I'm really satisfied with the O.P.I Drip Dry and the UD Primer Potion!! *_* My eyeshadow lasted the whole night (I went to carneval in Switzerland yesterday / today xD) Just looove it! I also ordered the Redken Body Full Shampoo and Conditioner, because I have really thin hair :S But it isn't really working for my hair.

And for V-Day, I got 2 other Charms for my Thomas Sabo necklace (The Eifel tower and the heart!)

I also went to the M.A.C counter. Surprise! xD I got myself my new favorite lipstick in "Cream in your Coffee" and two eyeshadows in "Black Tied" and "Satin Taupe", which is just a beautiful color!! I didn't get any of the All ages, all races, all sexes collection, because to me, there was nothing extraordinary in this collection. But I have a date with my M.A.C Counter Girl for the upcoming "Color Forecast" Collection, which I'm really excited about!

So enough of my shopping obsessions! *_* I want to give away my own made awards! So there is going to be a "Favorite Blog of the month" award. And this time it goes tooo:
Kathi, wih her blog Narrations of a M.A.C-a-holic!

I just really enjoy to read her blog entries =) And I think we got the same "color taste"!

And yeeeah, Switzerland is really shining on these olympics! *happy* I'm excited about the man figureskating ( I once skated myself). Who do you think is going to get the golden medal??

A Lush review and some yummie!

Hey there!
So I got a request on doing a review on these Lush products: "Ocean Salt", and the temple balm "Flying Fox". I will start off with the Ocean Salt.

It comes in a hardplastic container (205ml) and some of the ingredients are: ocean salt (obviously), fresh grapefruit juice, bio limes aaand the special ingredient iiis Wodka. The Lush Lady said, that Wodka helps to dimish the pores. I would highly recommend you to really try this Ocean Salt first in the lush shop. I loved the smell, but my mom didn't like the smell at all. But I would describe it as a nice and freshly ocean smell.
You can use it as a peeling for your face and for your body. I mainly use this for my upper arm and for a deepcleaning of my face xD

To the temple balm Flying Fox. I wanted something to fall better asleep and there was an temple balm called "Dreamtime", but it smelled not that nice :x So anyway, I tried the Flying Fox out, and it smells after yasmin! The Lush Lady mentioned  that this temple balm also should sensualise...but yeah...I just leave this comment in the room xD I was really excited to try the balm out. Before I went to bed, I rubbed a little bit on the balm with my ringfinger and afterwards rubbed it on my temples. So if you are lying in bed, the smell of yasmine really helps to kind of "calm down" and get ready to sleep. But again, if you don't like the smell, you should better not buy the temple balm. Because, who wants to fall asleep with a smell you don't like?

I hope the review was helpful! For more informations about Lush and their products, check out their website!

And I made also some Cupcakes! Yummie! So for all my cookiemonsters out there, enjoy!! =)

LUUUUSH....Haul + mini M.A.C Haul

Hey there!
My friend is celebrating her 20.birthday and I had to go to Basel to get a present =) I got her the Rectangle M.A.C mini-petite. Basically, it's just a "beauty case" xD. But I had to get it, because she's a M.A.C fanatic too *_* (but, who isn't?). She will also receive the Pooh Set (last post) and a coupon for a cinema night with me and Cris. But like always when I enter a M.A.C Store I had to have something for myself! So I bought the M.A.C Plot Powder Pressed because Narrations of a MAC-a-holic made an awesome review on it! Thanks again! And I also got the Paint Pot in Artifact, which is a violet/reddish color. <3

And I went also to a LUSH Store to get the temple balm. But the Lush Lady made me buy other stuff too xD So I tried the Oceansalt out, and I really liked it =) I got the Buttercreme too, so that I could get a free goodie bag (amounting to 30$!!) from the Lush Store! And in there where many great things!

Last but not least, I want to say thank you to all my 18 followers!! *big love for all* <3 <3 <3 Next time you will see a review on the "Sun Club" by essence!

Little Haul + EOTD

Hey there!
So I went a little shopping today with my mom and I got the essence sun club (blondes) - all over shimmer for eyes, face & body, NYX Eyepencil in white and for my mom I got the L'oréal Color Riche Star Secrets Aishwarya in Beige 708. And after I went home, I had to try out the sun club, which is like the Shimmer Bricks by Bobbi Brown! The colors are really good pigmented and I really love it! I would highly recommend you to check this out! It only cost me like 6 sFr. (it's like 6$). If you want me to swatch it, just comment!

So because of my new "acquierement" I had to do a EOTD - short for Eyes of the Day! And here it goes:

And isn't thaaat cute?? I saw this in a perfumery for 9$ and I had to buy it for my friend as an additional birthday gift! It's the Créme Brûlée Scented - Hone Bath & Bod Treats Giftset! (The classic pooh collection) Aww, I love SALE xD

Hey there!
So this is going to be my first haul on my blog! I actually tried once to film a haul (about the love lace and warm and cozy collection from M.A.C) for my youtube channel, but it was kind embarrassing to sit in my room and talk to my cam xD so I just quit that project!
I went to Douglas today and bought: Russian Night by O.P.I, On Hold Lipstick, Medium Deep Mineralize Skinfinish, Ricepaper and Vanilla and the 168 Brush from M.A.C
And hell, I never thought that the nail polishes from O.P.I are thaaat expensive!!! When I heard the price I was like: "wooaah...okeeey" but it is a really nice color, it's a dark blue/purple color with shimmery effects in it! And I got the Medium Deep MSF as a contouring colour. So here is the picture with all my new stuff on:

And yeah, I finally got my M.A.C Palette full:

What do you think about O.P.I Nail Polishes? Are they just in Europe that expensive?

New M.A.C Brushes

Hey there! So I went to Douglas last friday, to buy MAC eyesbrushes. And I just love them! I know, they are REALLY expensive (especially in Europe I think), but I think they will last like, 20 years or more? So I don't have like a "bad conscience" because I see it as an investment! =) I watched videos of All that Glitters 21 and EnKore Make Up, and bought the brushes they recommended the most, and which I really need. I also looking forward to get Shader Brush 242, Contouring Brush 168, and the blus brush 129 (and maybe even the kabuki =)) If you have any other "recommandations" on M.A.C brushes, that you think are a must have, comment! And here is the list of the new brushes I got:
  • M.A.C 239
  • M.A.C 224
  • M.A.C 217
  • M.A.C 219
