Makeup L'oreal rouge signature ink maybellin Snapscara


The first days of spring have already aroused the desire for new colors with lots of sunshine. Perfect for gaudy colors on the lips are the new L’Oréal Rouge Signature Matte Ink. 24H lipsticks. For a natural look for your eyelashes I can recommend you the new Snapscara Mascara of Maybelline.


Maybelline – Snapscara Mascara


maybelline Snapscara


The new Snapscara Mascara by Maybelline provides supple volume without clumping. It is easy to remove – even with warm water. Nevertheless, it holds super good, I wore the mascara, for example yesterday for the video shoot of Happyonion.ch and it hold the whole day. The Snapscara is a so-called Tubing Mascara, because its formula contains no waxes, but based on polymers – these are film-forming agents. The mascara covers the eyelashes like a mantle and prevents the mascara from smearing. When removing make-up then small “Tubes”.



With the curved brush, the mascara can be applied very easily and if desired also in several layers. I especially like the natural finish – just because it really does not smudge. My new favorite mascara.


L’Oréal – Rouge Signature Matte Ink. 24H


L'oreal rouge signature ink


The L’Oréal Rouge Signature Matte Ink 24H is a liquid ink lipstick with a matte finish. It is available in 12 ultra-matt statement colors. I was allowed to test them all.


L'oreal rouge signature ink Review


The color result is super intense in all nuances, thanks to its highly pigmented formula. Long-lasting color result: up to 24 hours hold.



In addition to the design itself, I like the applicator very well. With the applicator the color can be applied precisely. The formula is very light and feels almost like water on the lips. If you have dry lips, you may want to exfoliate and care for them before using them.


L'oreal rouge signature ink Review


Here you can see the swatches of the 12 shades:

  • 103 I Enjoy
  • 104 I Rebel
  • 105 I Rule
  • 106 I Speak up
  • 109 I Savor
  • 110 I Empower
  • 112 I Achieve
  • 113 I Don’t
  • 114 I Represent
  • 115 I Am Worth it
  • 117 I Stand
  • 116 I Explore


The durability of the Rouge Signature Matte Ink. 24H I think is good – even the swatches were not so easy to remove ^^

NARS is one of my absolute must-have brands and this since the first time I have been able to welcome the most famous blush in a long time the “orgasm” in my make-up collection. There are great news to discover again this spring.


NARS – Skin Deep Eye Palette


NARS Skin Deep Eye Palette


A highlight is the new NARS Skin Deep Eye Palette with beautiful colors and an incredibly good pigmentation to create beautiful looks. Fallout and Co. is not an issue at NARS anyway. The eyeshadows are creamy and can be applied and blended very well with each other. I also like to use the very dark shades as a replacement for my kajal to create a softer look. The colors are exactly mine, I love those browns and oranges, they emphasize my blue eyes optimally.



NARS Skin Deep Eye Palette Swatches

There are matt, shimmery and metallic shades – they can be combined with each other so beautifully. Of course, I have swatched the nuances for you, you see the following colors:

  • TAUNT (matte cream)

NARS – Super Radiant Booster


NARS Radiant Booster


Also brand new is the NARS Super Radiant Booster, which enhances the glow of the skin with a pearlescent glow and a light, variable texture – in a flattering rose gold shade for all skin tones. Even the Super Radiant Booster is limited. It can be used in different ways, for Glow in the whole face you can mix it with your foundation and apply it. If you like it intensively, you can also apply it under the foundation in advance. For discreet highlights use it on the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, the arch of the arm and the décolleté, apply and blend.


Super Radiant Booster NARS


I like to wear it as a highlighter on the cheekbone to create a fresh complexion. I especially like the texture, because it can be blended easily. For the care it contains vitamin E.


NARS – Sheer Glow Foundation


Sheer Glow Foundation NARS


The Sheer Glow Foundation by NARS is a Transparent Foundation and available in 27 shades. The Foundation creates a smooth complexion, with a fresh and naturally radiant finish. The skin can breathe and looks radiate. It can be applied very well and acts as mentioned before natural-glowy and not cakey. The contained antioxidants then protect the skin from free radicals. Despite my rather greasy skin, the foundation is good.


NARS – Radiant Creamy Concealer


NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer


If you know NARS, you probably also know the Radiant Creamy Concealer. Because this concealer has already won beauty awards. It is suitable for use as a concealer, for correction, for contouring and for highlighting. The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is now available in 30 shades, there is certainly the right color for you.


NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer


The concealer is very easy to apply and has a great opacity, dark circles and Co. disappear. Of course it is important to choose the right color. Here I recommend you to use as a highlighter to choose a color that is two tones lighter than the natural skin tone, and apply these in the appropriate areas of the face. For more dimension and contour, however, you should choose a color that is two tones darker than the natural skin tone, and conceal the concealer on the cheeks and temples and along the hairline and jawline.

Skin Care Favoriten


During the past few months I have again diligently tested the novelties in terms of skin care of my favorite brands. There are again many great products, which I would like to bring you closer to today.


Guerlain – Abeille Royale Double R Serum


Guerlain Abeille Royale


You like luxurious care? Then you should definitely take a closer look at the Abeille Royale Double R Renew & Repair Serum by Guerlain. It combines the Abeille Royale technology to correct visible signs of aging with a gentle exfoliation and thus most effectively counteracts the loss of tone and firmness, wrinkles, pale complexion, skin defects and enlarged pores. The serum contains as active ingredients the honey and royal jelly of black bees from the island of Ouessant. The gentle peeling with New Skin effect accelerates cell renewal in the epidermis without irritating the skin.


Guerlain Abeille Royale


The Abeille Royale Double R Serum by Guerlain impresses in advance by its wonderful, luxurious fragrance. The two “phases” of the serum combine after getting out of the bottle. The serum can then be incorporated very well into the skin, it feels very light and does not greasy. Therefore, the serum is also good for oily skin. In particular, I like to apply it in the evenings before night care, but it also unfolds its effect under the make-up. The skin feels hydrated and relaxed after use, and the Abeille Royale Double R Serum immediately gives it a radiant complexion. The serum is very easy to dose and therefore very economical to use.


Glamglow – Starpotion Liquid Charcoal Clarifying Oil


Glamglow Starpotion


Glamglow is known for its extraordinary and innovative products – no matter how much I love the face masks of Glamglow, that’s no secret either. The Starpotion Liquid Charcoal Clarifying Oil is a black oil which becomes transparent when applied. It clears the complexion with the help of antioxidants, vitamin C and salicylic acid to protect the skin from toxins and environmental influences. The contained aloe vera and turmeric nourish and nourish the skin.



I do not know any comparable products, I was all the more excited about the results and also the application of the Glamglow Starpotion Liquid Charcoal Clarifying Oil. As you can see takes the oil with a pipette and it looks black in advance. However, once it is spread on the skin it becomes transparent. I like to use the oil in the evening – so it can be undisturbed the whole night. Especially with impure oily skin, this oil is because it contains salicylic acid. I have the oil very well and the application is easy.

P.S. It can also be applied very well to a Glamglow mask for extra care.


Guerlain – Pore Minimizer


Guerlain Pore Minimizer


I already used the last drop of the Guerlain Pore Minimizer Treatment. Even after the first application, I realized that it can be wonderfully used as a primer replacement. It mattifies the skin wonderfully and the make-up is also very good. The Pore Minimizer narrows and minimizes pores instantly, visibly and long-lasting. The combination of clay, zinc and vegetable extract makes it possible to specifically correct all types of pores, freeing up clogged pores and allowing the skin to breathe. Apply the Pore Minimizer after cleansing and before make-up – you can also apply a serum before. I also really like the small packaging, which can be taken along well when traveling.


Clarins – Pore Control


Clarins Pore Controle


And I’ve tested another pore serum, the Clarins Pore Control Serum. Plant active ingredients ensure a more even skin appearance here. Although this serum does not have quite as much matting effect as that of Guerlain, it combines well with the skin and feels light. The product did not irritate my skin. I prefer to wear it on my make-up days off. If I want a completely dull make-up finish, I use a primer. For the glowy look you can use it without an additional primer.


Pore Control Clarins


In particular, I like the light texture, it will definitely provide a great care in the summer without makeup.


Sisley – Soin Velours aux Fleurs de Safran Creme


Sisley Soin Velour aux Fleurs de Safran Creme


One of Sisley’s core competencies lies in effective skin care. Sisley has once again proven this with the Soin Velours aux Fleurs de Saffron Cream. Especially in winter time, my skin has to fight against dryness. The Soin Velours aux Fleurs de Safran cream moisturizes the skin and reduces skin irritation. It also helps to restore the lipid content of the skin. This balances the skin. The cream is applied to the face and neck in the morning and evening, because it has a dual mode of action. During the day, the skin is protected and repaired at night.




I especially need to highlight the incredible texture of the cream. At first glance, the cream is very rich, this is it, but on the skin, the cream feels nourishing but not greasy or too lush. It is very easy to work into the skin and leaves no unpleasant greasy film – as is often the case with some rich cream’s. Sisley proves again the competence in textures of cream’s. The protective mechanism of the cream was especially noticeable in winter sports, when the skin was spared the negative influences of the cold. And even in the morning after getting up, the skin feels regenerated and recovered.


Worth mentioning are the highly concentrated active ingredients, in which Soins Velours aux Fleurs de Safran are in particular the following active substances:

  • Buckwheat seed extract: protects the lipids from oxidation
  • Shea butter: provides nutrients and regenerates
  • Saffron flower extract: has a soothing effect
  • Three oils with high levels of omega 6, 7, and 9 (cottonseed, macadamia, and sunflower): immediately enhance the skin’s protective hydrolipid film by biometrically balancing out dehydration
  • Japanese purple grape extract: compensates for lipid deficiency and permanently binds water in the skin
  • Extract of Padina pavonica: replenishes the water reserves in deeper skin layers
  • Complex moisture-binding ingredients (wheat glucose derivative, vegetable glycerin and provitamin B5): compensates for dehydration immediately






There are also great Skin Care News to discover at Origins and of course I have tested the three new products in the past weeks as well.


Origins – Ginzing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer


Origins - Ginzing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer


The Origins Ginzing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer is specially designed for oily and combination skin. He has a very light gel-creamy texture. When you open the cream, the first thing that strikes you is the pleasant scent, because the cream smells fresh and fruity with citrus fruits and makes you feel good in the morning. The Ginzing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer contains stimulating extract from the coffee bean, which leaves the skin looking fresh and radiant. The contained ginseng revitalises and restores the skin’s natural elasticity. For me a wonderful moisturizer for every day, which cares for the skin well.


Origins – Ginzing Eye on the Go


Origins Ginzing Eye on the Go


The Pendent to the Moisturizer is the Origins Ginzing Eye on the Go. It helps reduce puffiness around the eyes and diminishes dark circles. In turn, ginseng provides for an energy boost, which makes tired skin awake again. Coffee beans are effective against skin irritations and Magnolia extract prevents irritation that promotes dark circles under the eyes. The application is easy by using the sponge applicator and the light texture is feels so good on the skin. It also contains natural optical brighteners with mineral pearlescent pigments, which make tired eyes shine. Eye on the Go is suitable for quick and easy eye care for every morning – but also in between for extra care. The tube can also be very good in your handbag everywhere.


Origins – High-Potency Night-A-Mins Oil-Free Resurfacing Cream


Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins


Now to my absolute favorite one of the three novelties the High-Potency Night-A-Mins Oil-Free Resurfacing Cream by Origins. The cream is also suitable for oily and combination skin. It contains extract of the chestnut and AHAs, which are extracted from plants and fruits and gently exfoliate the skin. A blend of vitamins and minerals boosts the skin’s resilience so it can protect itself from harmful environmental influences. Barley extract and wheat extract hydrate the skin and the combination of essential oils of neroli, valerian and orange as well as vanilla extract give the night care of Origins its a pleasant scent that has a calming and relaxing effect. I apply the Night-A-Mins each evening after cleansing and my serum – in the next morning, the skin is super fresh again.

Sisley Makeup


Recently I took part at the event of Sisley in Zurich, where the new products were presented and I was allowed to make up with them immediately. Already there it became apparent that the new Sisley Mascara So Volume could become my new favorite Masara. I also tested the l’orchidée blush highlighter in the new color Corail. Ready for testing was then the instant Eclat primer from Sisley.


Sisley – So Volume Mascara


Sisley So Volume Mascara


You are looking for a nourishing mascara that gives you volume? Then the So Volume Mascara by Sisley could become your favorite too. So Volume Mascara’s formula improves eyelash density with vitamin-containing peptide, cotton proteins and a ceramide-like active ingredient. The eyelashes are thus denser, stronger, longer and more resistant with each application. The growth of eyelashes is stimulated with arginine and its beauty by pro-vitamin B5, extract of Japanese cherry blossoms and castor oil. The fact that the formula of mascara has a lot of care to offer, I can already feel when applying clearly on the creamy consistency and ease on the eyelashes.


Sisley So Volume Mascara


I also really like the brush – as you may know, I prefer “normal” brushes. The brush separates the eyelashes nicely when applied and envelops each eyelash with color – without sticking to it. For the perfect result, first apply the mascara in the middle of the eye to open the view. Then apply the brush to the base of the upper lash line, then spread the texture by turning the brush upwards to the tips. To separate the eyelashes perfectly, it is important to first drive on the outer corner of the eye and then return to the eyelashes of the inner corner of the eye. The mascara can be applied in 2-3 coats for an even more intense result.


By the way, the So Volume Mascara is available in the colors Deep Black / Deep Blue and Deep Brown


I love it.


Sisley – l’orchidée Blush-Highlighter Corail


Sisley L'orchidee Corail


To be honest, the Sisley l’orchidée blush highlighters are an absolute must-have for me. Maybe even the most beautiful blushes on the beauty market right now. The orchid as an embossing is simply breathtakingly beautiful and brings me so much joy and this only when I open the blush. This spring / summer, there is also a new shade of color available called Corail. A beautiful coral perfect for spring and summer. The luxurious blush highlighter contains the extract of white lily.


I like to use it as a blush on the cheekbones. At the event, I also received the following tip from the Sisley Makeup Artist: For a fresh, radiant look you can work the l’orchidée Blush-Highlighter Corail into the eyelid fold to open the view. I love this little trick, so give it a try.


Sisley – Instant Éclat Primer


Sisley Instant Eclat Primer


Somewhat longer in the range of Sisley is the Instant Éclat Primer. Time for me to finally test it. I use the primer on the whole face underneath the foundation. The Instant Éclat Primer instantly radiates the skin, reduces shadow areas and signs of tiredness. The skin looks smoother and even without glittering. Instant Éclat contains a cocktail of 4 active ingredients with complementary action. The contained kiwi extract improves the energy and vitality of the skin. Holly extract has a strengthening effect. The funnel algae extract cushions the skin by strengthening the skin’s own “water cushion”. Then vegetable glycerin moisturizes.


Sisley Instant Eclat Primer


The texture of Instant Éclat is non-greasy and therefore also suitable for oily skin like mine. I especially like that after applying the foundation can be applied immediately on it. Especially with matt foundation the Instant Éclat Primer helps to achieve a very natural result. The durability is extended. If you have oily skin, I recommend you to abstain from using any other moisturizer and to apply only the Instant Éclat after your serum in the morning so that the make-up lasts the whole day.

Olaplex N°4 shampoo Olaplex N°5 conditioner


I have been using Olaplex for years. Both when dyeing at the hairdresser with Olaplex N ° 1 and N ° 2 and at home Olaplex N ° 3 is always in use. In cooperation with basler-beauty.ch I was allowed to test the new Olaplex N ° 4 shampoo and Olaplex N ° 5 conditioner.


For those of you who hear Olaplex for the first time, here’s a little text about it: “Olaplex – changes everything! The secret weapon of American top artists for stronger, healthier and shinier hair than ever before, for long-lasting color results and a starched Protects the hair against damage from bleaching and colorations and multiplies and strengthens the structure of the hair Can be combined with bleaching and coloring agents from all manufacturers Olaplex is free of silicones, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes and gluten and never became Tested animals.

Olaplex works in three easy steps.

  • Bond Multiplier No. 1 is added directly to the bleaching or color mass.
  • After washing out the paint, OLAPLEX Bond No. 2 applied as a post-treatment such as a hair treatment. Apply to hair and leave for at least five minutes.
  • OLAPLEX Hair Perfector no. 3 is an intensive hair therapy for the home and between the hairdresser visits. Applied once a week, it repairs and prepares hair optimally for the next chemical treatment. ” – Source: baslerbeauty.ch

Today my report is not about Olaplex N ° 1-3, but about the new Olaplex hair care products to use at home. Because last year I did a total of three Balayage dyeings and unfortunately my hair suffered a lot. This can be seen very well in pictures 1 year ago, when my hair was still darker, longer and denser.


Olaplex N°4 shampoo Olaplex N°5 conditioner


It was time to regenerate the hair again. I will also not making new highlights until my hair structure has improved. This has already been done with Olaplex. Olaplex’s first shampoo and conditioner are containing the original and patented active ingredient Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate. With every hair wash, the broken hair is getting  repaired.


Olaplex N°4 shampoo


The Olaplex N ° 4 Shampoo visibly improves the hair structure and gives the hair shine, this promise I can only confirm. The shampoo is very economical, you only need a small amount that needs to be foamed well with water. I then leave the shampoo shortly before I rinse it. It is also 100% vegan, free from sulfates and parabens, as well as gluten-free and color safe. The hair also smells very pleasant but discreet.


Olaplex N°5 conditioner


The Olaplex N ° 5 Conditioner repairs and hydrates the hair without weighing it down, improves structural damage and reduces split ends. The consistency of the conditioner is creamy but firmer than I know it from other conditioners. I apply the conditioner after the shampoo and let it work for three minutes. Then rinse thoroughly. After shampooing, the hair feels super neat and soft.


I have tested the nursing duo a good 6 weeks now and it has repaired my hair significantly. Previously, I had some very strawy hair, they were visibly dried out so that even styling products could not do much. Since I do sports every day, I always have to wash my hair daily too. Nevertheless, Olaplex was able to visibly improve my hair structure within a few weeks. I will continue to use the combo anyway.


Especially noteworthy is the particular effect, if you previously applied Olaplex N ° 3, then the shine of the hair is especially beautiful and it feels extra neat. I use the whole combination of 3 – 4 – 5 once a week, leaving Olaplex N ° 3 to work for about 1 hour – the perfect way to make face masks and Co. at the same time. Incidentally, at basler-beauty.ch you get the three products currently super discounted in the set. I think it pays to spend a little more money, especially if your hair is also weakened by bleaching and dyeing like mine. In addition, I have so far just needed a little more than half the bottle, the products are very economical. I will certainly get a back-up.

Smashbox Gloss Angeles Lipgloss


Smashbox Gloss Angeles Lipgloss


I’m in love with the Gloss Angeles Lip Gloss from Smashbox. Why? The lips simply feeling great with this gloss on it. It contains Hyaluronic Acid, which moisturizes the lips and gives the lips more volume. Vitamin E nourishes the delicate lip skin in addition. Even when applying you can feel the care. The Gloss Angeles gloss does not stick on the lips. The gloss is available in 14 colors, with and without glitter. The Gloss Angeles lip gloss can be applied alone or as a topper on the lipstick for a glossy look.


Smashbox Gloss Angeles Lipgloss


With the precision tip, the lip gloss can be applied easily and precisely. It can also be applied several layers of paint. Personally, I’m a huge fan of nude and glitter colors. But also a fresh tender pink fits wonderfully for the upcoming spring season.


Smashbox Gloss Angeles Lipgloss


Those who prefer a colorless or extra glossy look should not miss the Smashbox Gloss Angeles Extra Shine Gloss. You can use this colorless Gloss Angel and apply it overneath the other Gloss Angeles glosses to get a super glossy look or of course just bare on the lips. It is also practical as a topper overneath your favorite lipstick. The Extra Shine Gloss also feels fabulous and nourishes the lips with hyaluronic acid and vitamin E.

Maccosmetics Hyper Real Glow


MAC Cosmetics has been one of my favorite brands for a long time. They always manage to convince me with limited editions and new products. Today I would like to introduce you to two products that have been allowed to move in recently.


MAC Cosmetics – Hyper Real Glow Highlighterpalette



The Hyper Real Glow range is available in different versions, I was allowed to try them in the color Shimmy Peach by MAC Cosmetics. First of all I like the design very well, a stylish highlighter palette. The palette contains three dark, peach-colored highlighters with a creamy powder formulation. This makes the Highlightershades very intense and pleasant to apply. In winter it is great for my skin color as a bronzer replacement with Glow – during the cold season.


Maccosmetics Hyper Real Glow


I can also imagine using them as a highlighter in the eye make-up, because they are super-pigmented and also hold well thanks to the creamy powder formula. Here you can see the swatches:

  • Glow, Baby, Glow
  • Shimmy Peach
  • Paradise


MAC Cosmetics – Versicolour Varnish Cream Lip Stain


Maccosmetics MAC Cosmetics - Versicolour


As long as they are still available, you should also get the Versicolour Varnish Cream Lip Stains from MAC Cosmetics. I was allowed to test it a bit longer and I’m really excited. It is a mixture of gloss and color. They are super easy to apply and have a great opacity.


 Maccosmetics MAC Cosmetics - Versicolour


The formula feels very comfortable on the lips and does not dry my lips out. The Versicolour Varnish Cream Lip Stains last up to 12 hours. Of course I’ve swatched the three colors I got, for you.


Maccosmetics Hyper Real Glow


The swatches of the three colors:

Then you’ll get a result that covers well and lasts longer.



Thanks to its packaging, the Collistar ART DESIGN® LIPSTICK SENSUAL MATT is already an eye-catcher. The design is just amazing. It is a dull lipstick of color. On the lips, the lipstick feels very comfortable and not dry. Here you see the color 9 rosso nero mat – a nice dark red.




Also from the fall / winter collection Made in Italy is this highlighter for face and body. I like to wear it on the cleavage.



The Collistar PROFI-EYE CONTOUR PIN METALLIC EFFECT in the color 22 has made it to one of my favorites in a short time and as a substitute for my black kohl. Thanks to the creamy consistency he can be applied well and also holds very long.




The NAIL POLISH 2 IN 1 LINER by Collistar I tried in the color 1 argento – via chiaia. The special thing about him is the thin brush. With it it’s easy to decorate the nail. The nail polish can also be weared on it’s own or as a topper.


The UNICO LIPSTICK by Collistar is available in many colors – four of which I was allowed to test – I’ll show you today. The lipstick is very creamy and can be applied easily and precisely. The bright colors are very intense and good. On the lips, the lipstick feels pleasant and does not dry out the lips.
Here you can see the swatches of the four tested lipsticks. All colors are very well pigmented and have a pleasant shimmer. The Swatches are from following colors:
– 1 Nudo
– 10 Lampone
– 11 Corallo Metallico
– 12 Scarlatto

For me, mascara is one of the most important makeup products besides powder and my eyebrow pencil. I was very excited about the Mascaras of Clinique and L’Oréal, which I received for testing. I have now tested all of them and I would like to withhold my impressions no longer.


Clinique Mascara


Clinique tested the Lash Building Primer, the new High Impact Lash Mascara and the classics the High Impact Mascara. What should be noted at Clinique that you can use with any products that prevent the skin from allergens, irritants, and ingredients that can cause aging or damage to the skin. Therefore, the products are always well tolerated. Mascara and Lash Primer free of parabens, phthalates and perfume.


Clinique – Lash Building Primer


Clinique Lash Building Primer


The Lash Primer by Clinique offers care for the eyelashes. Just apply it underneath the mascara. A special polymer mix strengthens the eyelashes and makes them look silky. I wait for a moment until I apply the mascara over it. With regular use, I have the feeling that the eyelashes look well-groomed.


Clinique – High Lash Impact Elevating Mascara


Clinique high impact lash elevating Mascara


I really like the new Clinique High Impact Lash Mascara brush, which looks at my blog for a longer time, so I generally prefer the classic brushes to the silicone brushes. The mascara can be easily applied over the primer and gives the eyelashes momentum and support. The High Impact Lash Mascara is a super light, creamy mousse mascara. The mascara easily lasts all day and eyelashes in a beautiful black.


Clinique – High Lash Impact Mascara


Clinique high impact Mascara


The bestseller and classic by Clinique is called High Impact Mascara. It gives a wonderful volume and compacts the eyelashes. It contains a flexible polymer that lengthens and cares for the eyelashes. Again, I find the brush very handy, the eyelashes can easily exchange without sticking.


Loreal Eye Pouch


The beautiful eyelet of L’Oréal contains millions of Lashes mascara in star design and the LeKòhl kohl. Get Volume Lashes Féline Mascara, Volume Lashes Extra Black Mascara and Super Liner Perfect Slim Eyeliner for testing.


L’Oréal – Volume Million Lashes Mascara



The L’Oréal Volume Million Lashes mascara has been around for a long time and there is certainly a reason for that. In advance, the price-performance ratio is very good. The mascara can be applied without getting clumpy. There is never too much mascara on the brush, so you can aplly it on to the lashes well.


L’Oréal – Volume Million Lashes Féline Mascara



The L’Oréal Volume Million Lashes, in contrast to the Volume Million Lashes Mascara, has a curved bristle brush. This achieves the shorter eyelashes. In addition, the curved brush gives more momentum.


L’Oréal – Volume Million Lashes Extra Black Mascara



The L’Oréal Volume Million Lashes Extra Black Mascara is structurally like the Volume Million Lashes mascara, but it dips the eyelashes into an even more intense black. Nevertheless, it is easy to remove.


L’Oréal – Super Liner Perfect Slim Eyeliner


L'Oréal - Super Liner Perfect Slim Eyeliner


The L’Oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim Eyeliner has a felt tip tip that makes it easy to draw a beautiful eyeliner line, even a narrow and a wide. The durability is good.


L’Oréal – Super Liner LE KHÔL


L'Oréal - Super Liner LE KHÔL


The L’Oréal Super Liner LE KHÔL is a kohl that is very easy to apply and well pigmented. But I personally prefer waterproof kohl Liner.

I’m a nail polish addict, so by now I own a large collection of varnishes in many different colors. In recent weeks, my collection has received further growth, among other things, have added a few new colors of essie, alessandro and Guerlain. As well as topcoats and care products from essie and my new favorite topcoat from wet’n’wild.


Nagellacke Review essie alessandro guerlain Nailpolish


For you I have tried the nailpolishes and swatched them. I was able to discover a few favorite colors again. By the way, for the first time I’ve tried nail polishes from Guerlain.


Nagellack essie nagellackentferner


From essie, I received a great package a while ago with various nail polishes, nail polish remover and care products. Finally I had time to test them. First of all, I am very satisfied with the good as gone nail polish remover from essie. Even dark nail polish can be removed quickly and easily without discoloring the nails.


NAgellack essie


I tried the Speedsetter Topcoat from essie (1) for the first time and I have to say that it dries really fast compared to other topcoats – but I still think the durability of my new favorite topcoat is a bit better. But if it has to go fast, it’s my first choice. Orange is the color of the apricot cuticle oil of essie (2). It nourishes the cuticle and smells pleasantly fruity. Apply the nail oil either before painting and leave to work, but before painting the nails clean them from the oil – or just in between. I like to use it in moments like now, where I am writing. The first base of essie (3) I can also recommend you, it makes the nail polish adhere better and protects the nails from discoloration. As already mentioned, I was also able to remove dark paint well with the good as gone nail polish remover, I also used the first base.


Nagellacke Guerlain


For the first time ever, I was allowed to try Guerlain’s nail polish. As you know Guerlain is one of my absolute favorite brands – accordingly, I was very curious. First of all, I like the bottles of nail polishes incredibly well, they are always an eye-catcher for the beauty shelf. Currently, I particularly like the color 025 West Wood – a dark red – perfect for the winter wardrobe. You can also see the paint in some pictures on Instagram. Nail polish number two is a slightly gaudier the color 044 East Poppy and will certainly quickly become the favorite nail polish in spring.


Nagellacke Guerlain


Both nail polishes are very easy to apply thanks to their creamy-liquid texture. Also, the brush has the optimal size to apply without smudging the nail polish. I apply two layers for even more color depth. On the artificial nails at the end of the article you can see the result of only one layer.




Particularly great when it comes to the alessandro nail polishes is the 5ml size, so you can buy many different colors and they don’t dry out before you use up. Especially if you like variety on the nails, this is essential. Incidentally, I’m currently wearing the color Elephantastic – a shade of gray with shimmer. I like it.


Nagellack alessandro


Also, I like this color very well and the name Fashion Flamingo is promising. The other alessandro nail polishes names are Velvet Spring – a delicate purple, Lucky Light – gray with shimmer and Flower Crown – a delicate pink. The nail polishes of alessandro keep very well and give full color.


Nagellacke essie Festtagskollektion


The essie winter collection 2018 has fascinated me with a lot of glitter. The finish of the paints is not smooth but you can feel the individual glitter particles. The paints are wonderful as topper, but can also be easily and effectively worn individually. The durability of glitter paints is very good. They are also easy to remove for glitter paints. The paints are called Can not stop here in copper, stay up slate, venture to the venue and beat of the moment.


Nagellack essie sunny daze


The essie nail polish in the color sunny daze I have received a long time ago, but you have not shown yet. I also like a great everyday go color with shimmer that I love to wear. The durability is very good as with essie, just like the color brilliance.



Here you see all the varnish one layer applied to transparent artificial nails, one after the other:

  • essie can’t stop her in copper
  • essie venture to the venue
  • essie beat of the moment
  • essie stay up slate
  • essie sunny daze
  • Guerlain 044 East Poppy
  • Guerlain 025 West Wood
  • alessandro Lucky Light
  • alessandro Fashion Flamingo
  • alessandro Velvet Spring
  • alessandro Flower Crown
  • alessandro Elephantastic



Nagellack wetnwild mega last hard as ice


Now to my new favorite topcoat he is called megalast hard as ice and is from wet’n’wild. The topcoat does not soften the color coat underneath and is easy to apply. It dries quickly and makes the nail polish noticeably longer lasting. Especially with regard to the price-performance ratio a top product, that I can highly recommend.

 Make up Review


On Christmas I got some great make-up products, which I have not shown you yet. Today I want to make up for it and present to you on the one hand the pretty Christmas Editions by Guerlain and on the other hand a brand that I have tried for the first time. These are Gabriella Salvete, whose products were included in the Christmas gift from Parfumcity.ch..


Guerlain – Météorites Electric Pearl


Guerlain Météorites Electric Pearl


Also this year, there was again a limited edition of the Guerlain Météorites Electric Pearl at Christmas – these highlighter pearls are part of every well-stocked make-up collection and leave an incomparable glow. In addition, they smell – as usual with Guerlain – simply magical. In any case, I was very happy about it and like to use the pearls for the right glow – they give great highlights on the skin.


Guerlain – Gloss D’Enfer 921


Guerlain Gloss D'Enfer 921


Even the luxurious gloss of Guerlain fit’s perfectly for the festive season and of course I still like to wear it now. The Gloss D’Enfer in the color 921 is a beautiful red with glitter particles. The gloss is easy to apply and the durability is also good. It also leaves behind a delicate fragrance a nourishing feeling on the lips and color rich.


Gabriella Salvete – Palette 16 Shades


Gabriella Salvete Palette 16 Shades


And now let’s get to the Christmasgoodies of Parfumcity.ch. I was very pleasantly surprised by the Gabriella Salvete Palette 16 Shades, as I had never heard of the brand before and have never tested it before. Included are 16 different shades – both with a matte and glittery finish. I also like the simple design of the palette very well.


Gabriella Salvete Palette 16 Shades Swatches


The best idea is to show you the swatches, because the colors are all very well pigmented and can be applied easily and opaque. A great eyeshadow palette for every day use as well as to create evening make-up looka – not just the dark and glitter nuances are ideal for this.


Gabriella Salvete – 3 Contouring Palette


Gabriella Salvete 3 Contouring Palette


In addition to the Eyeshadow Palette, I also received the Gabriella Salvete 3 Contouring Palette to try. Contouring is not quite as trendy as it might have been a few months ago, but it’s still a proven technique to give the face more structure. In the Contouring Palette you will find what you need: a Bronzer, a Highlighter and a Blusher. The application succeeds here without any problems and all the powder can blend well to create a natural look.
