New York Gifts

Today my sister came back from her trip to NYC. I couldn't resist giving her a little wishlist.. *g* And she got everything I wanted. I kept the list to a minimum and quite simple. She's not that into make up.

Here are my things:

The new Rolling Stones magazine with the True Blood cast on the cover, the Tokidoki brush set!!! and my beloved Certain Dri anti-perspirants.

While there is not much to say about the magazine (I love True Blood) and the anti-perspirants (best ever) I can show you a billion pics of the Tokidoki brushes.

I'm a huge Tokidoki fan and so I really needed to have those..

I doubt that I will be able to use them, they are too pretty to get dirty. The bristles feel super soft. The only "negative" thing I noticed is that the crease and eyeshadow brush are quite big. Especially the crease brush would be too large for my crease. But other than that they are perfect!

Aren't they adorable??

Summery Make Up

A summery look I did in extreme hurry.. *gg* Sorry for looking so evil in the first picture - the sun was shining and it was hot, which always makes me extraordinarily annoyed..

Twilight Nail Polish!!!!!!!!

I say it right away - I'm a huuugee twilight nerd and I'm totally okay with that. Breaking Dawn is my favorite of the four and I read it at least six times.

So I always wanted to get my hands on the official Twilight Make Up. Just to have it and when I just saw these I almost started to cry..

It is sooooooooooooooooo unfair that they don't ship internationally.. I can't even say how badly I want them..

I know the post isn't that exciting, I just had to share my pain with someone..


My favorite eye make up

I love this simple cat look and it is my go-to look. :-)

Just a simple face make up and a winged out eye liner in black. :-)

Sneak Peek of the upcoming The Body Shop Autumn Trend

I had the pleasure to see the new products from The Body Shop launching in october and I thought you should have that pleasure too.

There will be 4 new beauty powders which you can use as blush, highlighter or even as eyeshadow. I mean look at that gorgeousness. We saw two of them:

Furthermore, they created new eye kajals which remind me of the ones that Sleek carries.

There are three shades: green, black and a silver grey. Those are divine, a perfectly rich colour pay off and a silky smooth application. You can use them as an eyeshadow base, as a normal liner and they are perfect for the waterline.

What do you think? I can't wait to see them hit the stores.

Vienna calling!

I have a question, how many of you guys live in Vienna????

I'm curious and I'm thinking about something, but if there is no one in the area, there is no point.

A simple: me or yes is enough :-)

Gel Nails Refill

I got my refill on wednesday and I am soooo happy with it!

Don't they look gorgeous? I adore Babara, she does such a good job. I am so excited and happy with my nails that I decided to get myself some toe gel nails as well.

My appointment is on thursday, I will make a post about this as well. You can't imagine how happy I am with those, I always suffered from these bad looking nails.

So now I have perfect nails, but I still could use some advice with perfect looking cuticles. Any tips??

Design Change

Do you like the new design??


IsaDora Graffiti Nails aka Crackle Polish!!!!!

Ever since I heard of a polish that leaves a crackled pattern I wanted it. I know sells some, but the shipping costs are so high I couldn't justify ordering, which means a lot. lol

So when a kind friend of mine mailed me an article about these launching at Douglas, a local perfumery, I went there the same day and there they were, in all their holyness.

There are several colours available and that's how it looks like:

How awesome is that?!?!

You just use them like a topcoat and after 30 seconds the pattern appears. The more colour you apply, the larger the crack patterns will be, but you have to be super quick, the dry crazy fast.

I bought the black one and tried them immediately, I know the polish is applied messy, but I was out of time and it's better than nothing:

They dry to a matte finish, but with a topcoat everything is shiny. :-) The graffiti polish soaks up the colour a little bit, on the third pic you can see that, I used two coats and that was the result, I would recommend three coats for a vibrant result. You can use any normal polish as a base and a normal topcoat, so don't let the ad foul you.. *g*

These retail for 8,90€ each, I think it is totally worth the money. Will you get one?


MAC Dazzle Lipstick & Dare to Wear Eyeshadow + Lipstick Haul

I so wanted to post this in time, but I didn't make it. :-( I bought these ten minutes after they set them up at the counter on monday. *gg*

So better late than never!
I bought only two lipsticks, good Guinevere, one Dare to Wear lipgloss and five eyeshadows.

Here we go:

Hot Sass, Baby's on Fire
Bold & Brash

The formula on the lipsticks is sooo gorgeous and I love the dazzle effect. The Dare To Wear lipgloss is super sticky, it has great colour pay off, but since it is soooo tacky I only bought one.

I'm an eyeshadow freak and I adore bright colours, so this collection was a little dream:

From left to right: Going Bananas, Louder please, Shock-a-holic, Zingy, Sassy Green

Swatch time:
As always, matte colours don't swatch that well, but they are awesome nevertheless.

I didn't buy Lime and Aqua, cause I already own them:

What did you get? I can't wait to read your comments. :-)


Baked To Last finally released

After the several announced release dates, the baked to last collection finally entered the stores.

Besides the fact that now all eyeshadow duos and duo blushes are out there, Body Shop launched Delipscious, a set of nine sheer lip colours and four tinted lip balms. They consist of 100% food-grade ingredients, including blueberry and pomegranate seed oils. They are almost as gorgeous as the eyeshadow duos. *g*

Will you get something? I already have. *gg*
