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
