Taking a break from stressful everyday life is essential. I enjoy to combine my me time with a little bit of beauty care. Sometimes the time is missing for an extensive beauty program, but the new face masks and skin care products, which I was allowed to test, also offer a solution here.



I tested face masks of different Brands like Shiseido, Glamglow, Yves Rocher, Sephora, Zoe and I am – during the last weeks I personally tested all of them and would like to tell you more about the individual products today.


Glamglow – Instamud 60-Second Pore-Refining Treatment


Glamglow Instamud


Let’s start with Glamglow’s fastest mask it’s the Instamud 60 Second Pore Refining Treatment. One free minute is enough for this mask. It is a bubble mask after application the bubbles develop. The mask is easy to apply and leaves the skin super soft – not dried out. A great care Quickie for in between.


Glamglow – Waterburst Hydrated Glow Moisturizer


glamglow mud


Although not a mask but also by Glamglow is the Waterburst Hydrated Glow Moisturizer – just after the 60 Second Pore Refining Treatment it offers the perfect care on the go. After this combination, the skin feels cleansed, pampered and moisturized. The Waterburst Hydrated Glow Moisturizer is an ultra-light, water-based cream that instantly moisturizes and lasts for up to 72 hours – a lot of care in a short amount of time. It contains a triple hyaluronic acid complex, water from the volcanic Jeju Island and a TEAOXI® Blue Nymph Lily Extrac. Apply the moisturizer in the morning and in the evening.


Shiseido – WASO Purifying Peel Off Mask


WASO Purifying Peel Off Mask


For years I have not used peel-off masks anymore, why? Most of them did not have an effect but stuck to the skin all the more. When I received the new WASO Purifying Peel Off Mask from Shiseido for testing, I ventured back to a peel off mask again. And I do not regret it. It is the first peel-off mask, which is easy to apply and can be removed without residue. It counteracts irregularities in the skin tone, such as pimples or blackheads, by removing sebum and dead skin cells and is free of mineral oils. For this it contains extract of the red sesame leaf, which promotes a pure radiantly beautiful skin.


Apply the mask evenly to the pre-cleaned face and allow to dry. Then it can be easily removed. You can, for example, apply locally only to your problem areas such as nose or chin.


Shiseido – WASO Beauty Sleeping Mask


WASO Beauty Sleeping Mask SHISEIDO


Beautiful overnight? This is the concept of the new WASO Beauty Sleeping Mask by Shiseido. The moisturizing gel mask is based on the yuzu citrus fruit, the extract of yuzu seeds promotes the production of hyaluronic acid, so that the skin can store moisture better. Even after a short night, the skin looks fresh and refreshed. In addition, a combination of selected ingredients counteract blemishes and enlarged pores. The gel mask contains small capsules, they melt when applied and provide moisture during the night. The scent of the mask is also very pleasant. I love the feeling the mask leaves on the skin in the morning.


ORIGINS – Charcoal Honey Mask


ORIGINS Charcoal Honey Mask


The first mask I tested from Origins made me a big fan right away. The Charcoal Honey Mask by Origins contains activated charcoal and honey. It has a wonderful, luxurious texture and can be applied very well. Also the feeling on the skin during the application is very pleasant. The mask clears, cleans the pores and draws toxins from the skin and nourishes the skin at the same time intensively. As a result, the skin does not stretch after use – on the contrary, it feels well-groomed. The scent of the mask results from a mixture of 100% natural essential oils of clove, rosemary and spearmint. The mask is also very productive. A clear buy recommendation.


AHAVA – Mineral Mud Mask


ahava mineral mud


I also tested for the first a face mask by AHAVA. The Mineral Mud contains mineral-rich, naturally clarifying mud from the Dead Sea. In my opinion, it is particularly suitable for greasy and blemished skin. I would not recommend to use the mask on very sensitive skin. I don’t have sensitive skin – but the mask is very intense. The mask cleanses the skin intensively. Afterwards I like to use a moisturizer or mask to calm down.


Yves Rocher – Gesichtsmasken & Peeling


Yves Rocher Masken


I also tested masks and a scrub by Yves Rocher. There you will find the masks in 30ml tubes, these are enough for 2-4 applications and can be closed after use. A great idea for all the multi-masking fans among you – then you can easily tune the application to the specific needs of a particular face area.


The masks have very different textures as you can see. The Radiance Mask is transparent and intended as an energy kick for a pale complexion. The invigorating properties of sea buckthorn act on the skin and make it radiate. The Renergize moisturizing mask moisturizes with agave juice and regenerates the skin intensively. The cleansing mask mattifies the skin beautifully and is really recommended for impure and oily skin. Now one of my first beauty products – the gentle exfoliation with apricot kernels, was one of my first scrubs, which I had brought as a teenager at Yves Rocher. In the meantime the formula has been overhauled – I still like it.


ZOÉ Expert – sheet masks


Zoe Gesichtsmaske


You like it uncomplicated? Then you will definitely like the new masks of ZOÉ Expert. The Clarifying Black Mask by ZOÉ contains activated carbon particles and is therefore suitable for impure skin. It clears the skin and cleanses it. The mask feels slightly cool when applied, but it keeps very well and adapts easily to the face shape. This also applies to the ZOÉ Expert Hydra Mask. It contains algae extract and hyaluronic acid. Especially in winter, the skin likes to dry out – that’s where the moisturizing organic cellulose mask comes in handy.


I am face masks


I Am Gesichtsmasken


Super practical are also the new face masks from I am – like ZOÉ a brand you find at Migros. I was allowed to test these three variants:

  • Purifying Mask, a cleansing mask for normal and combination skin. It is very effective, but it is less suitable for sensitive skin.
  • Instant Radiance, the perfect mask for a glowy complexion. This gel mask actually always fits – even if it is just not the big care program. You can put them in the fridge for the special freshness kick beforehand.
  • Hydrating Mask, also a lightweight gel mask for a radiant skin. It also feels very pleasant on the skin and looks very mild but effective. The skin is wonderfully moisturized.


Sephora – sheet masks


Sephora Maske


Do you already know the combination of cloth and bubble mask? I have tried it for you. Lay the cloth mask on your face as usual and it starts to “work” – during the application, you can feel the bubbles as in a normal Bubblemask. After application, the skin feels fresh and looks fresh too. The Mud Mask of Sephora, on the other hand, is perfect as a preparation for an event, clubbing and co. I use it after cleansing the face and before I start applying make-up. The mask mattifies the skin and prepares it for the make-up – I like it.


I hope I could give you some input in choosing your next face mask 🙂

Pixiglow Cake by Pixi Beauty


Pixi glow von pixi


I was allowed to test two nuances of the new Pixiglow Cake for you. First of all, I like the look of the color nuances that run into each other very well. Otherwise, the design as usual for Pixi is kept in the typical fresh shade of green. These 3-in-1 highlighter pallets give a smooth, even glow. Thanks to the three different shades, they look very natural on the skin. Anyway, the feeling is extremely powdery. If you are looking for a gentle and not too obtrusive highlighter I can highly recommend these palettes. The color PinkChampagne Glow contains intersecting pinks, so the blush is superfluous. The Pixiglow Cake GlidedBare Glow, however, goes from gold to bronzer.



To apply the powder is very easy without precipitate. Depending on the desired intensity, it can also be applied several times without being to cakey.



MatteLast Liquid Lip by Pixi Beauty


MatteLast Liquid Lip von Pixi Beauty


My absolute favorite liquid lipsticks include the MatteLast Liquid Lip by Pixi. The wearing feeling is incomparable in my opinion. They do not dry out the lips and look nice and even. At the same time, they provide long-lasting color – even with shining nuances. An absolute must-have for every liquid lipstick fan. To care the lips, the MatteLast Liquid Lip by Pixi contains rosehip oil and jojoba.



Thanks to the heart-shaped applicator, the MatteLast Liquid Lip can be applied evenly without any problems and without getting over the edges. He is very creamy, but also dries very quickly and evenly on the lips. If you have rough lips, it is worth to exfoliate the lips and apply for 5 minutes a not too greasy lip balm.


MatteLast Liquid Lip von Pixi Beauty Swatch


Here you can see the swatches of all 11 shades that I was allowed to test – as you can see here too, all nuances are very even and intense.


  • Au Naturelle
  • Bare Beauty
  • Matte Beige
  • Pastel Petal
  • Really Rose
  • Evening Rose
  • Peony Pink
  • Prettiest Pink
  • Orange Red
  • Real Red
  • Berry Boost

At any rate, it was love at first sight when I first saw this Owl Nightlight at Manor. The owl is just sugar and is now on my bedside table. A cute gift set is the Sephora Charming Hands Set, which includes a hand mask, a cute owl hand warmer and a coconut hand balm. In order to sleep deeply and soundly, there is the sleeping mask of the sweet owl matching the night light. The hand warmer is then also available to buy separately.

Christmas Eve is already in three days – do you have all gifts together? If not you will hopefully get some inspiration in my blog post today. I put together the most beautiful fragrance novelties for you and tell you which fragrance suits for who.


Vincente Camuto – Divina


Vince Camuto Divina


In advance the prize for the most beautiful bottle goes to Divina by Vince Camuto – a true work of art. Already visually, the perfume therefore looks very high quality and is perfect as a gift for the best friend, mother or mother-in-law. Immediately after application it unfolds a fruity citrus note, then the floral-powdery fragrance notes of the fragrance stand out. A fruity-floral and light scent for all ages. The classy bottle can be quite deceiving – I like this fragrance because it’s very fruity-floral and immediately lifts my mood. The perfect start in the dark winter morning. At the same time it is my first perfume by Vince Camuto but certainly not my last one of this brand.


  • Top notes: grapefruit, aldehydes, black currant berry
  • Heart notes: violets, mimosa blossoms, sunflowers
  • Base notes: Sandalwood, Heliotrope, Musk



Zadig & Voltaire – Girls Can Do Anything



A completely different fragrance can be found at Zadig & Voltaire. Girls Can Do Anything is a familiar rocky fragrance with matching design. A fresh, intense fragrance with a pleasant powdery note thanks to the woody note. Added to that a fruity sweetness of pear and tonka bean. This perfume is suitable in my opinion for all women who like it rocking. In any case, I also like the message of the fragrance very well – the perfect gift for all women who do what they want because they can.


  • Topnotes: pear, orange blossom
  • Heartnote: Tonka bean
  • Base notes: Musk, Woody Fern, Vanilla


Girls can do anything Zadig Voltaire



N°4711 Acqua Colonia – Blackberry & Cocoa und Vanilla & Chestnut


 N°4711 Acqua Colonia - Blackberry & Cocoa und Vanilla & Chestnut


Let’s come to one of my new favorite fragrances – one of the seasonal fragrances from the 4711 Acqua Colonia collection. N ° 4711 Acqua Colonia Vanilla & Chestnut is an intense and long-lasting fragrance. The fragrance note vanilla is in the foreground and harmonizes wonderfully with the rather restrained chestnut. A sweet scent perfect for the Christmas season. This fragrance is suitable as a gift for those who love vanilla and sweet scents.


N°4711 Acqua Colonia - Blackberry & Cocoa und Vanilla & Chestnut


For both fragrances, I like the classic flacon design incredibly well. The perfume has a very high quality just by the packaging – priced, however, both fragrances are more than appropriate placed. N ° 4711 Acqua Colonia Blackberry & Cocoa is a fragrance that follows the typical scent pattern of 4711. An intense scent – heavier than Vanilla & Chestnut. A fragrance that I can well imagine on a man. Both fragrances are unisex but I think the vanilla fragrance will be too sweet for most men. Blackberry & Cocoa, on the other hand, fits perfectly with its blackberry note. The cocoa note does not stand out here. A nice present for your boyfriend, dad & Co.


N°4711 Acqua Colonia - Blackberry & Cocoa und Vanilla & Chestnut



Replay Signature – Secret & Red Dragon


Replay Signature


Replay’s new twin line is young and cheeky. The women’s fragrance is called Secret – the concept behind it can already be seen on the beautifully designed bottle, which reminds of a secret garden. Intense fresh is my first impression of Replay Signature Secret – the freshness remains thanks to orange blossom and jasmine also exist. Flowery and at the same time softly woody. A great fragrance to give as a gift to the BFF or sister’s heart.


  • Top notes: bergamot, petitgrain, pear
  • Heart notes: freesia, sambac jasmine, orange blossom
  • Base notes: vanilla, cashmere wood, cedar wood, white musk



replay signature


Now the absolute gift for the boyfriend. Because of the bright red dragon on the bottle, he’ll really enjoy Replay Signature Red Dragon at first sight. The perfume reminds me in the first moment of a spa visit. A very harmonious – Asian-inspired fragrance. Fresh and spicy thanks to pink pepper and cardamom with a light citrus note. The conclusion is a fresh fragrance with white woods and patchouli essence.


  • Top notes: Cardamom Essence, Pink Pepper, Jungle Essence, Grapefruit
  • Heart notes: tea chord, geranium essence, black pepper
  • Base notes: vetiver essence, white woods, patchouli essence

Wow in a week it’s already Christmas Eve. So it’s time to share my Christmas Beautywishlist with you. Maybe this is one or the other must-have for you or you will find a gift inspiration for your loved ones.




MACCosmetics – Shiny Pretty Things


Maccosmetics Shiny pretty things


At MACCosmetics there are two beautiful festive collections, the first one is called Shiny Pretty Things and belongs to my Christmas Wishlist. Because it is not only beautiful from the outside – but also convinces when used with incredible shimmer and intense color. There are also beautiful gift sets with miniatures and Co. available.



I received these two beautiful products at the MACCosmetics Event. The lipstick has the color Both Cheeks – an intense pink. Shiny Pretty Shadow is the name of the eye shadow, it glitters wonderfully and is an absolute must-have for the Christmas look. The color is called Joy To.



NARS – Little Fetish Mini Blush & Lipstick



NARS - Little Fetish Mini Blush & Lipstick


Every year, I’m especially looking forward to the NARS mini sets – they are the perfect gift for your loved one’s or yourself. The NARS Little Fetish Mini Blush & Lipstick Set contains the hottest Blush ever ORGASM. I also like the mini make-up to take it on vacation or in small handbags.



MACCosmetics – PATRICK STARRR Sleigh Ride




Glitter and glamor is also the motto of the festive collection – and at the same time the final collection – of PATRICK STARRR for MACCosmetics. The packaging is perfect for Christmas therefore in red with foil glitter look.



I got several products here. Let’s start with the EYE SHADOW X 6 SMOKY range with six beautiful eyeshadows inside. The dark shades are perfect for an evening look and the amazing packaging for a present to yourself or other make-up addicts. My highlight is then the Dazzleglass Lipgloss in the color TWERK FOR GIFTS – perfect for wearing it alone or as a topper. Another eye-catcher is the Lipsticks of the collection, this color is called PEACHY PETER.


Sephora Collection




At Sephora there are more beautiful Christmas specials available – today I would like to introduce you to two palettes on my Wishlist. In my last-minute gifts guide, I’ll show you some more great Christmas products and gift ideas by Sephora.


sephora once up on a time palette


The Sephora Once Upon A Palette is already visually a dream. It contains 20 eyeshadows, 3 face powders and a red lipstick as well as a big mirror. Especially great are the two exclusive tutorials for a successful make-up. All in all, just beautiful.


Sephora Collection Midnight wishes


The Sephora Midnight Wishes range consists of 16 matte, pearlescent and metallic eyeshadows for great looks. I like the hues – they are perfect for a festive look as well as a pretty everyday look.



Also available at Sephora is probably the sweetest palette this Christmas – Under the Christmas Tree by Too Faced is my absolute Christmas Mustache. The fir-tree contains three different palettes and my favorite mini-size mini-mascara – exactly the Better Than Sex Mascara.



In the first of the three palettes are a highlighter, bronzer and a blush included. Triangle number two contains eight eyeshadow colors: Vanilla Snow, Christmas Wish, Kiss for Santa, Rockin ‘Around, Dream it – believe it, Christmas Morning, Cozy up to Christmas, Wishful Thinking. The third triangle of the Christmas tree  contains then ten eyeshadows: Beard of White, Winter Wonderland, Pleasant Dreams, Dream come true, Unicorn’s pull my sleigh, Oh what fun, Wishes & Kisses, Starlight, Fresh Cut & Frosty and Under the Mistletoe.


The colors are all very well pigmented and can be applied wonderfully without fallout. Also, the insides of the triangles are so cute decorated – I also like the velvety shell very well.


Makeup Forever


Do you know make-up Forever? I particularly love the HD Microfinishing Loose Powder – and this is exactly what is included in the Essential Wonders gift set. There are the Step 1 Smoothing Primer, the Artist Rouge Mat M102 and the Deluxe Artist Pencil 606. Also for this I love such gift sets – you can test the products in a small size first and may find so new favorite products.


The Body Shop – XMAS Makeup


The body shop makeup


Surely you remember the great Christmas make-up products from last year’s collection of The Body Shop, which I introduced to you. There  are pretty products again this year. As well as the COLOR CRUSH LIPSTICK X-MAS lipsticks in three great colors and in a Christmas look. The colors are called Champagne Dusk, Flaming Horizon and Scarlet Sunrise. The lip



The METAL EYE LIQUID liquid eyeshadows are my personal favorites. They cover so wonderfully and are super easy to apply. Just right for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. They are available in three metallic colors – I was allowed to test Holographic Platinum 700 and Gold Carat 117 – and I am thrilled by both. In addition, of course, they are 100% vegan.







Golden Silver Mask Sephora


There are also so many Christmas highlights to discover at Sephora Beautycorner. Not missing on my Beautywishlist are the Silver and Golden Mask. Both are film masks and make the skin shine properly and are the perfect gift for beauty lovers.




LUSH Christmas


On my Beautywishlist for Christmas at the top once more, are the bathing products of Lush. I love them. Also, because they always smell wonderful and due to the philosophy of Lush and the idea of not generating waste through packaging.



The sweet Santa Bomb Bomb consists of two parts and can be used as one piece or two as desired. Anyway, I love the strawberry-cream fragrance from both halves.


Magic Wand Lush


The Magic Wand is a reusable bubble bath. I love the sweet scent of this glitter star – it is also easy to reuse and dose.


Star Light Star Bright Luxuriöses Ölbad


The Star Light Star Bright is a luxurious oil bath. This is especially nurturing in the winter and a blessing. Included is ginger and lime oil. Murumurubut cares for the skin. And the water turns lavender-colored.


The Body Shop


The body Shop Christmas


The Body Shop is known for its body butter and deliciously scented Christmas editions. This year, there are again wonderful fragrances for the care products.




My personal favorite of the three winter scents is BERRY BON BON. Both the body butter and the exfoliation smells wonderful. The scrub is a gentle body scrub with a sugary texture and contains organic Community Trade cane sugar from Paraguay. It is enriched with cranberry seed oil extract. In addition, both products are 100% vegan.




An equally great and Christmassy scent is VANILLA MARSH MALLOW – there are also various The Body Shop products. At any rate, the bubbling bath puts me in a Christmas mood – and thanks to the body butter you smell like a cookie. The products are enriched with vanilla extract from Madagascar and Community Trade honey from Ethiopia.




Do you like peppermint? Then you should not miss the PEPPERMINT CANDY CANE fragrance line. The mix of peppermint and candy cane I personally like very well anyway. This body butter is 100% vegan.






The limited edition of Rituals for Christmas is called The Ritual of Yalda. In addition to the room fragrance sticks, the shower foam is one of my new favorites. The Ritual of Yalda is inspired by the millennium-old Persian Yalda Festival – pomegranate and watermelon to counteract winter fatigue. Personally, I like the scent very well, check out the collection at the Rituals Store – while it’s still available.



How do you like the products on my Christmas Beautywishlist 2018?

Guerlain Makeup



Guerlain is one of my favorite brands. The high-quality fragrances and the unique make-up products are rightly among my favorites. Today I would like to introduce you to some new products that I was allowed to test.


Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Compact Mat Alive Review


Guerlain’s new compact powder foundation, Lingerie de Peau Compact Mat Alive, complements the Lingerie de Peau line. For those who want a natural finish that still looks dull, it’s my #1 insider tip. Unlike other powder foundations I’ve tested so far, it lasts much longer and does not look caky. Especially to get  a natural make-up look, the Lingerie de Peau Compact Foundation is perfect.



The Lingerie de Peau Compact Mat Alive Foundation has an elastic, changeable texture. It is enriched with the Biofusion Stretch Complex – a combination of two different adaptive microbeads:

  • spongy beads inspired by the memory foam technology, which thanks to their elasticity, are able to follow the movements of the skin;
  • Corrective beads with high absorption capacity for comfort and a matte finish.



The application is super easy – with the included applicator sponge. First apply the powder foundation from the inside to the outside of the face using the white side. Then, with the black side, compensate for any unevenness, smooth contours and remove excess powder. As usual, wonderful at Guerlain is the fragrance of the Lingerie de Peau Compact Mat Alive Foundation. A scent of violets and rice powder make the application an experience.


I have tested two different nuances – both fit wonderfully to the complexion and look very natural.


Guerlain PRECIOUS LIGHT Concealer Review



You are still looking for the perfect concealer? Then you have to take a closer look at the Guerlain Precious Light Concealer. Too little sleep, because of Christmas stress, thanks to the Precious Light Concealer at least not look at me. Dark circles are covered and made to radiate. I wear Precious Light after the make-up on – on the one hand because then less is needed because even the primer was applied – on the other hand so that the contained Éclat d’Or pigments are not covered by Foundation.




The Precious Light Concealer is suitable for the following areas of application:

  • to lighten dark areas: Apply the product to the sides of the nose and the chin tip;
  • for the rejuvenation of the complexion: focus on the expression lines between the eyebrows, the corners of the eyes and the contours of the lips;
  • to lighten the facial features: Apply to dark shadows, puffiness and cheekbones.



Kiss Lippenstift Guerlain


One of my favorite lipsticks for a long time is the Kiss Kiss lipstick by Guerlain – as a limited edition, it is available in the color Excessive Rose No. 361 in pink design – or in a classical black design. In addition to the great scent, I especially love the creaminess of the Kiss Kiss lipstick. He can be wonderfully applied and is intensely pigmented.


Kiss Kiss Guerlain


The KissKiss routine:

  1. Apply Liplift primer before lipstick and slightly beyond the lip contour, then blend in with the fingertips.
  2. Draw the shape of the lips with the Stylo Lèvres.
  3. Apply KissKiss directly to the lips.



Guerlain Two-Tone Blush


The Guerlain Two-Tone Blush is a blush and highlighter duo. I tested it in the color 02 Rose Neutre is already visually a real eye-catcher – even the mirror I find very convenient – because I frequently refresh my makeup on the go. Of course, the scent is again incomparable. The light shade I use as a highlighter under the brow and on the cheekbones. The darker nuance I use as a blush.


Guerlain mon guerlain


The new Eau de Toilette from the Mon Guerlain line is not only the perfect scent for every day – but also a great gift idea for Christmas. By the way, Angelina Jolie’s muse for Mon Guerlain so it is the scent for the strong, free and sensual femininity. I was already able to test different editions of this perfume and was always excited about it.



The Mon Guerlain Eau de Toilette is a fresh oriental fragrance with citrus notes and lavender. It then contains notes of Tahitensis vanilla and Arabian jasmine. How do I find a wonderful winter fragrance.


How do you like the products? Do you already know which?

Makeup Clarins Loreal


It is time again for some great makeup news – which I have tested during the recent weeks. This time around are new items from Clarins and L’Oréal make-up. I’m sure you will like the products as much as I do.




Let’s start with the beautiful novelties at Clarins. Included are a new foundation, my new favorite mascara in deep black, a gel eyeliner and trendy ombré lipsticks.



The Clarins Skin Illusion Serum Foundation is suitable for all skin types. It contains an SPF 15 and is therefore suitable for every day. The serum foundation combines the fluid texture of a serum with the perfect concentration of pigments, leaving a radiant and natural finish. Applying can easily be done with a foundation brush – the foundation is not too fluid. It can be applied easily and evenly. The Foundation also includes the Clarins Anti-Pollution Complex.


Clarins Jolie Rouge Gradation Lippenstifte


The Clarins Joli Rouge lipsticks are my favorites for a long time. Now they’re available in a limited edition, the Joli Rouge Gradation lipsticks by Clarins. The ombré effect has never been so easy to make up as with these creamy lipsticks. Apply once enough for an intense color result with Ombré.


Clarins Jolie Rouge Gradation Lippenstifte Review


The lipsticks are available in three different colors: 802 red gradation, 803 plum gradation and 801 coral gradation. My surprising favorite color of the three is coral gradation – though otherwise I’m not so much into orange shades.


Clarins eyemakeup

Also in terms of eye make-up, there are some great novelties to discover at Clarins: A new mascara and a gel eyeliner – both in deep black.


The Mascara Supra Volume by Clarins in 01 Intense Black is not an ordinary mascara, because with regular use, this mascara promotes thanks to the new active complex a 17.6% higher eyelash volume. She also cares for the eyelashes. It adds a deep black color and makes the eyelashes look voluminous – that’s why it’s my new favorite Masara. The waterproof gel eyeliner Clarins is an absolute must-have for all eyeliner fans – as I am one. He is great to apply and keeps the whole day. And the color is deeply black.


Les Chocolats L'Oréal


Let’s start with L’Oréal’s latest news – Les Chocolats Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks. These do not bear their name because of the color. They smell of chocolate and therefore they belong to the make-up collection of every chocolate fan. The great thing is that they do not smell too artificial but very authentic. Thanks to the applicators, the Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks Les Chocolats are super easy to apply. The color is very intense and well pigmented.

Nars Shiseido


Shiseido has reinvented his make-up collection and I’ve tested many of the new products for you. Also at NARS there were new things to discover, namely the new single and Duo Eyeshadows. Of course, I’ve also swatched all the products.


Lippenstift Shiseido


Let’s start with the new lipsticks from Shiseido. The whole collection is stylish in red and black and reminds of the country of origin of the brand – Japan. The ModernMatte Powder Lipstick by Shiseido is a creamy lipstick with a matte finish. The tip has different edges and so the lipstick can be applied precisely even without a brush.



Another novelty is the VisionAiry Gel Lipstick. A gel lipstick with a light texture and intense color. He can be applied super well and the color is not only highly pigmented – it also holds well. In the middle you can see the two Swatches – 222 Ginzia Red VisionAiry Gel Lipstick and 502 Whisper ModernMatte Powder Lipstick. There are of course many more colors available 24 of the ModernMatte Powder Lipstick and 28 colors of the VisionAiry Gel Lipstick by Shiseido.



The new Shiseido collection also includes the ultimate foundation brush. The DAIYA FUDE Face Duo not only has a standard brush head, but also a silicone applicator as a gel blender. Liquid, Cream, Powder and Cushion Foundation can be applied with this duo easily. Since I usually use liquid foundation, I apply this with the brush head and use the silicone applicator instead of the finger to further blind. A really practical brush.

These products are also very stylish and they add a certain glow or a fresh touch to your face. The InnerGlow CheekPowder in color 06 Alpen Glow is a blush with a light peach color touch and therefore looks very natural. The color is again very well pigmented, you can see it in the 1st Swatch below. Apply the powder rouge with a rouge brush. The textures of the following two products have convinced me too.



The new Shiseido Aura Drew is a highlighter – I was allowed to try it in the color Solar 02. I love the packaging – and it fits wonderfully with the creamy-powdery consistency of the Aura Drew. I use it mostly as a highlighter for the face. He can also be used for highlights on eyes and lips. The Minimalist WhippedPowder Blush has a light, mousse-like consistency and is easy to apply and blend with your fingers. You see the color on the 3rd swatch above, this is the color Ayao 05.


shiseido makeup


Now to the products for a dramatic moment. Let’s start with the new ImperialLash MascaraInk Mascara by Shiseido in the color 01 Sumi Black. The hairs of the mascara brush are staggered and thus pick up exactly the right amount of mascara. The crown-like tip is used to capture small hairs in the corner of the eye. The mascara is jet black and easy to apply. There are no lumps. It keeps very well and is smudge-proof.



An amazing novelty is the ArchLiner Ink by Shiseido. Because it has a novel ergonomic shape that is easy to handle and provides a clear view while using it. Neither hand nor pen thus disturb the viewing angle when applied – in contrast to conventional eyeliners. The tip is very fine and allows an accurate application. The eyeliner dries super fast and lasts very well – up to 24 hours. Another novelty is the Kajal InkArtist Shadow, Liner, Brow Pen by Shiseido – as the name suggests, it can be used as a kohl liner, eyeliner, eyeshadow and brow pencil. Some of you may have noticed the trend of colored eyebrows – this pen is very versatile and can be used for this as well. It contains at the rear end a special applicator for the different areas of application. The consistency is creamy and can be applied well. I like to use it as a kohl and eyeliner.


shiseido Essentialist Eye Palette


Now to the last two novelties of Shiseido, which I would like to introduce to you today. The NANAME FUDE Multi Eye Brush is an eyeshadow brush. I like the design very well and the brush fits well in the hand. The Essentialist Eye Palette in the color MIYUKI STREET NUDES by Shiseido has proved to be my favorite palette for everyday life.




The colors are very well matched and can blend in together well. There are three matte shades and a glittery one. The colors of the eyeshadow palette are very well pigmented and easy to apply.




Now to the eye shadow novelties of NARS. The DUO EYESHADOW is now available in many new colors. I was allowed to test two of the new DUO’s. Duo number one is called Kuala Lumpur and contains the colors Kuala Lumpur I and II. In particular, the beautiful Shimmer makes this duo special. I simply love the eyeshadow of NARS.




You can see the swatches of Duo’s Kuala Lumpur above. The Swatches 3 and 4 belong to the DUO EYESHADOW in the colors Cordura I and II. Two beautiful shades in copper and brown – with a beautiful shimmer too.




The NARS SINGLE EYESHADOW are also available in many new colors. They are available in different finishes from bright and light reflecting to full and ultra matt. Also, the SINGLE EYESHADOW can be applied as eyeshadow and eyeliner, in dry and wet condition. Micronized powders make the eyeshadow comfortable to wear, which, thanks to its consistency, is easy to apply and blend, and lasts for a long time without settling in fine wrinkles




Incidentally, the eyeshadows can also be super-deposed easily and can be used, for example. put together in DUO or QUAD pallets I was allowed to try 10 of the new colors and have them swatched for you. Here is the list of colors as above:



On the swatches you can also see the variety of finishes:

– Matt: ultra-textured textures without high-color shimmer particles
– Shimmering: rich, soft colors with a subtle shine
– Pearl-like: silky, light-reflecting colors for targeted accents
– Metallic: strong shimmering formulations for a dramatic look
– Glittering: rich, vibrant colors with a radiant finish


How do you like the new make-up collection by Shiseido? And how do you like the new eye shadow creations from NARS?

Beautyblog Schweiz


I diligently tested the latest hair tools from Babyliss and Ikoo. Of course, the right hair care is also important, that’s why I have tested some of Paul Mitchell’s hair care products as well over the past few weeks.


schöne Haare Beautyblog


Here you can see some of the tested products, I have tried the Marula Oil Hair Care Light by Paul Mitchell as well as the heat protection of the NEURO Care series. The new oval curling iron from Babyliss I have finally been able to try extensively too.


Marula Oil Light Paul Mitchell Review


Especially when it comes to hair care products, it is very important to use the right hair care line for your own hair type. Since I have both fine and colored and thereby damaged hair, the Marula Oil Light Care series is ideal for me. It contains pure, natural Marula oil. Together with an above-average amount of minerals and nutrients, the oil acids provide moisture and regenerate and protect the skin and hair. Incidentally, I also like the packaging of the entire line.


Marula Oil Light Paul Mitchell Review


Paul Mitchell® MarulaOil Light Rare Oil Volumizing Shampoo

Thanks to the pump dispenser, the product can be dosed very well and no drop of shampoo gets lost in the shower. The shampoo is clear, has a gentle fragrance and foams well. Beet-derived arginine strengthens the hair and gives it intense volume. Cold-pressed marula oil and valuable nutrients help to seal split ends and make the hair shine intensely.


Marula Oil Light Paul Mitchell Review


Paul Mitchell® MarulaOil Light Rare Oil Volumizing Conditioner 

Especially with fine hair, the conditioners are often to heavy and make the hair looking flat. This conditioner complains my hair much less than other products and thus the hair gains in volume. For the hair tips, however, I need a little more care. However, the hair can be combed out easily after use.


Marula Oil Light Paul Mitchell Review


Paul Mitchell® MarulaOil Rare Oil Style Perfecting Serum

The hair serum of Paul Mitchell I like to use to tame flying hair. It also protects against further hair damage. The cold-pressed marula oil helps to seal split ends and ensures a smooth finish.


Babyliss Lockenstab Oval Gold Ceramic 38 mm


Babyliss Curling Iron Oval Gold Ceramic 38 mm

We all know round curling irons – but Babyliss now offers an oval curling iron. The advantage – the curls look much more natural and beachwaves are conjured up in no time. There are three levels of heat possible: 160 C ° / 180 C ° and 200 C °, to minimize the strain on the hair, I recommend you use a heat protection product and use the lowest possible heat setting for the desired look.



The handling of the curling iron is very easy and convenient. The cable can be rotated 360 ° so the use all angles is no problem. In addition, the curling iron contains an automatic shutdown, so it is not getting overheated. Again, I like the design very much – especially the gold ceramic coating not only protects the hair, but looks very noble. A great device to create beautiful beachwaves and Co. easily.


NEURO - Repair HeatCTRL Treatment

Paul Mitchell® NEURO Repair HeatCTRL Treatment

As already mentioned, it is very important to protect the hair from the heat before start styling. For this I massage the Neuro Repair HeatCTRL Treatment into the damp hair and leave it on for 5 minutes. Then I rinse my hair well and start with the styling. The treatment moisturizes, nourishes dry, brittle hair and makes it supple. It smoothes the cuticle layer and thus ensures shine. The HeatCTRL® technology then reduces the heat transfer rate when using heat-setting tools and thus protects the hair from heat damage.


ikoo brush e styler review


I tested and already presented to you in the Instagram stories some of the following products. I have tried the e-styler from ikoo and hair products.



ikoo e-styler

The e-styler by ikoo is a smoothing brush, for styling with simple and familiar combing movements. There are five heat levels from 150 ° – 230 ° C available. I always use the ion function, so that the hair is getting beautifully shiny. Hair straightening has never been so easy and quick. Thanks to the ceramic coating, the smoothing brush glides well through the hair.


ikoo brush thermal treatment wrap


ikoo Thermal Treatment Wrap Hair mask

The ikoo Thermal Treatment Wrap hair mask is the perfect complement to a beauty evening. I was allowed to test the detox & balance mask. It has a noticeable effect on irritated scalp and cares for damaged hair. The mask has a heat development, this makes the application a wellness experience and ensures that the care substances can penetrate particularly well into the hair structure. The contained nature extracts restore the original color brilliance of the hair and reduce split ends.


ikoo brush hair fresh up


ikoo Infusions Hair Fresh-ups

Brand new for me were the anti-frizz sheets. These towels tame curly and static hair, straighten and make it shine. Each cloth gives the hair moisture and shine. At the same time they provide UV protection for dyed hair and can be taken anywhere.

Fenty Beauty, Sephora, Glamglow


Today I would like to introduce you to somr great make-up novelties, which were allowed to move in during the last weeks. Included are products from Fenty Beauty – the make-up brand of Rihanna which is now available at Sephora Switzerland in Manor. And in addition, the first make-up product – along with my favorite Glowsetter spray – by Glamglow.


Fenty Beauty, Sephora, Glamglow


Let’s start with the hyped beauty brand by Rihanna. Fenty Beauty is the name and already the design is really more than pretty. I tested these three products: Killawatt Highlighter Duo, Match Stix and Mattemoiselle Lipstick.


Fenty Beauty Match Stix Trippin Review


The Fenty Beauty Match Stix in the color Trippin is a Shimmerstick and can be easily applied as a highlighter. The creamy formula is super easy to apply and melts on the skin. The shimmer is super intense and sparkles wonderfully.


Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo Review


How nice is this highlighter duo named Killawatt? The packaging alone is fantastically beautiful, even the case glitters. Included in this duo are the colors Lightning Dust and Fire Crystal. The highlighters have a powdery, almost creamy consistency and sparkle breathtakingly intense. A highlighter duo, which is also great to wear on special days.


Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Freckle Fiesta Review


And now to my new favorite lipstick, the Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle lipstick in the color Freckle Fiesta. In particular, the color surprised me more than positive. The application succeeds thanks to the narrow shape and the creamy formula. Also, the feel is very pleasant and the matte finish I like very well. The durability is also very good.


Fenty Beauty, Sephora, Glamglow Makeup

Here you can see the swatches of Fenty Beauty products:

  • Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle lipstick in the color Freckle Fiesta
  • Fenty Beauty Match Stix in the color Trippin
  • Fenty Beauty Highlighter Duo Killawatts


Glamglow Glowpowder Review


Beautiful is the Glamglow Glowpowder range. Again, I like the packaging very well – something different and popping. Very nice are then the imprints of the three colors. In addition, the Glowpowder range has the typical glam glow – I always call it cake scent – scent. The Glowpowder also contains hyaluronic acid and moisturizes the skin. All three nuances are easy to apply and blend, the consistency is velvety powdery.



Here are the swatches to the individual nuances. As you can see, the pigmentation is very good and the highlighters give a decent glow. I like to use them in combination with each other.


Sephora Matte perfection Powder Foundation REview


Do you know these days when you do not feel like applying a “real” foundation and you prefer something lighter? If so, then I have a tip for you: The Sephora Matte Perfection Powder Foundation is the perfect product for a no-make-up look. In combination with a little bit of mascara and some pink lip gloss, the look is perfect. The powder foundation mattes the skin and leaves it radiant, while looking super natural. In addition, it is great to take with my in my purse, because the application sponge is integrated into the packaging.


Sephora Feline Instict Dark Edition Palette Review


The Sephora Feline Instinct Dark Edition palette contains 12 beautiful shades, an application brush and a brush cleaner sponge on the side. Especially the sponge is a great idea, because so the look can be made with the same brush, without further cleaning in between the different colors. The packaging is stylish. The pigmentation of the individual nuances is again super well done – but see for yourself:


Sephora Feline Instict Dark Edition Swatches


Here you can see the swatches of the whole palette. I’ve already tried the shades and I’m thrilled. The bright and pink tones are suitable for a light day look with the brown tones, the whole gets more drama and the blue tones are wonderful for a nice evening look.


How do you like the make-up news? Have you already tested any of them?



I obviously had fun with my new make-up treasures.

Saturday Nightlife … Before I go out – for a long time ago I wasn’t – I would like to introduce you to a few make-up news, which I have tested the last weeks.


bourjois eyecatching mascara


One of the novelties is the Eye Catching Mascara by Bourjois. It is a volume mascara and it has a classic brush. With the help of the brush, it can be applied without lumps. The black is intense and does not stick. The durability is also very good, so the Eye Catching Mascara made it to my everyday products.


eyecatching Liner Bourjois


Matching the mascara, there is the Eye Catching Felt-Tip Eyeliner by Bourjois. It is easy to apply and is suitable for drawing a winged eyeliner. The tip lasts a long time and reliably releases the color.


Silly Sponge


Incidentally, I also tested the Silly Sponge – this one is from Tally Weijl. However, he could not convince me. Even the Foundation smeared rather than it can be applied evenly. I prefer to apply my foundation with a brush and sponge.



One of my current favorites is the Wet’n’Wild Ultimatebrow Pencil. I’ve already tested similar pens in a higher price range in the past and have to say that the budget-priced of Wet’n’Wild can absolutely keep up. The brow can be precisely traced and the durability and color strength is good. Then I use only a little brewing powder.


Matte Mat Primer Wetnwild


The Photofocus Face Primer in Matte Mat is perfect for anyone who – like me – likes a matte finish. Especially with the Photofocus Foundation of Wet’n’Wild he harmonizes very well and the makeup is holding better.


photofocus foundation wetnwild review


Not for the first time I was allowed to test the Wet’n’Wild Photofocus Foundation – it is my absolute favorite foundation in this price range. Now it is also available in other colors – as in Golden Beige. This foundation was great for my tanned complexion after my trip to the United States.


Natural Finish Setting Spray Wetnwild Review


From the same range is the Photofocus Natural Finish Setting Spray by Wet’n’Wild. What I like is the practical size and the durability. However, there is deduction for the smell – I am careful here and do not spray it into the eye area. Also, the spray head is unfortunately suboptimal and it forms no nice “drizzle” but it sprays very punctually. That’s why I’m staying with my favorite Glowsetter by Glamglow.


Wetnwild brushes makeup


Now for my current highlight of Wet’n’Wild – these beautiful brushes complete the existing range. They are not only looking pretty, but also very well made. Even after repeated cleanings, the brushes lose no hair and do not discolour. In addition, the amount of brush hair is well chosen for the particular purpose.



The synthetic hairs also feels pleasant on the skin. Powder and Co. can be applied well. Again, a recommendation on my opinion.



New colors are also available on the Megalast Liquid Catsuit Eyeshadows by Wet’n’Wild. All four new colors glitter very nice. They can be applied well with the applicator. But you have to dry completely.


swatches wetnwild liquid catsuit eyeshadow


The opacity is different. On the swatches you can see the colors Emerald Gaze, Gun Metal, Shells & Whistles and Cashmere Love. The two lighter shades are my favorites here. But also the opacity of Gun Metal is very good.



And with a lot of glitter it goes on. Some time ago I received this beautiful lip gloss from MAC Cosmetics. It reminds me of unicorns – in short I love the packaging and the color so much. That’s why I wanted to introduce him to you. Just Hustlin is the name of the color.
