review-_stuffLong time – no writing, I was missing this, so inspiration struck me to get back at it.  I accumulated some new makeup stuff, new for me, long time on the market and in other peoples drawers, as I have gathered on the internet. I will do a mini personal review for each one of them, I don’t find it necessary to give a full post for every individual piece, which means that I like them, and I use them, some I would repurchase and I will mention those, but others not.

Make-up break-up

crema

My skin is not great, I have my share of hormonal acne and blackheads from time to time, but sometimes I receive compliments on how my skin looks, in terms of glow and texture. I credit this solely to the fact that I never sleep in my makeup and to my cleansing routine. I thought I would break it down for you here.

Brilliant Bobbi Brown Blush

blush

If someone would ask me what my dessert island product is, for sure I would answer, in a heart beat, blush. I buy every cheap blush I see and like, then end up never using it because I don’t like the texture or colour or packaging or longevity on the skin. Because blush is my dessert island/one product for the rest of my life thing, I never gave up on it, but also, very reluctant on buying an expensive one because that was my last hope in finding the perfect texture/colour/aesthetic/staying power in a blush and I didn’t want to be disappointed, until one day, not too long ago…

Gym bag essentials Oh, the joy! .. after a good workout, ‘pat yourself on the back’ style. You can feel quite gross and drenched of all your powers after an adrenaline inducing, confidence boosting and body shaping workout and the best way to get that fresh feeling back again is a nice cooling shower.

What should you take in your bag and get yourself from a sweaty mess to a gorgeous human again? Continue reading

Men and skincare

Kiss

I love guys and I love skincare so I thought why not combine the two and write a little something. But my two loves tend to shy away from each other and by this I mean men shy away from skincare. I really don’t know why things stand like this, but I do have some theories.
(Another list for your viewing pleasure here, can you tell I like them?)
1. They imagine that creams are made in a cave by three wicked-wicked witches and contain potions that are going to melt their faces off.

Makeup bag staples

makeup products
As this is my first blog post I thought why not start with something everybody enjoys (at least the ones that use it) but it’s not that talked, really, in day to day life – products that should not miss from your makeup bag. I know what you are thinking, I should have started with skincare, but somehow makeup attracts me more, thus this approach. Bare with me.
