And I took inspiration from its hat :-)

Now that I have finished my nail polish colour system, I needed a good storage system and I chose this:

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers from the U.S.! In Austria we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, but I would love to have it..

So when I saw Christine's gorgeous Thanksgiving post on temptalia I got inspired:

10 Things I'm Thankful For (beauty edition):
  • Eyeshadow bases, they make my eye make up last all day
  • Brushes, cause they give you the opportunity to create looks you couldn't do without them
  • Barbara - my nail design girl, cause she makes my nails look pretty, something I always desired
  • Essence nail polish remover - cause it just works perfectly
  • Bright Eyeshadows - make up would be so boring without you
  • Bebe Young Care's Soforthilfe Lippenpflege, cause you always make my lips super soft
  • Givenchy Phenomen Black Mascara for making my lashes beautiful, long and non-clumpy
  • MAC Full Coverage concealer, cause you conceal all the redness I have
  • My Clarisonic Mia - cause you are the perfect skin cleaner
  • Cleanse Off Oils - cause I can remove my make up thoroughly and gentle at the same time

10 Thing I'm Thankful For (life edition):
  • My Family - for being the best one could have
  • My Boyfriend - for loving me unconditionally in his own weird way
  • My Dog - for being such a happy, cuddly thing
  • My Cats - for being so perfect in every way
  • My Medication - for giving me the possibility to live a fairly normal life

  • And most of all for you! cause every comment and positive feedback brightens my day!! 
What are you thankful for?

Illamasquas new Nail Quills

I'm sure you all read about Illamasquas new Nail Quills:

I think it's something new, Illamasqua is great at covering new fields, but what do you think about them??

I mean 35 pounds is a lot!! That is about 42€!! I would never pay that much for them to be honest.

Will you invest that amount of money?


Essence Fairytale LE Haul

Good morning beloved followers!

I was in Lower Austria last weekend with my boyfriend and we drove to a Müller and there was a full!! display of Essence's new Fairytale collection. It's so crazy how no one seems to give a damn for Essence except beauty addicts in Vienna *gg*

I bought the shimmer powder, one nail polish, one lipgloss and one eyeshadow:

Such pretty sparkle.. Swatch will follow soon!

It's doesn't have that weird yellow undertone it has on the picture

It is a cute peach and I thought lets try it

And on to the swatches:

One gotta admit that the lipgloss is very unpigmented but it is still cute, no staining either.
During swatching the eyeshadow felt a bit crumbly, we'll see how it works on the eyes. The shimmer powder has a quite fine and smooth texture. :-)

So what about you guys, getting anything??

H&M and Lanvin

Thanks so much for the nice words about my look on It means a lot to me!!

I'm curious about something. From the new Lanvin collection H&M released yesterday, what would you buy?
I'm not that impressed by the collection, especially when I think back to Viktor & Rolf (still regret not being there in time..), but if I could pick items, I would pick these:

What would you buy? Or what did you buy?

My MAC lipglass and how I store them

I've been saving this post for quite a while now.. And it is a long post with many pics. :-)

Besides Hauls and Swatches I just love it when blogger show their collections and especially what storage system they are using. It's always an inspiration.

So I thought you might enjoy this :-)

First I wanna say two things nevertheless: I'm NOT posting this to brag, there are a ton of people out there who own more glosses believe me and if you wonder over 90% of these are special edition items. Since Mac releases them so often I focus on those items.

Here they are:

Okay I can do this more organised.. *g*

Close Ups?

And NOW what I consider my most precious item:

Yeah you see right, I do indeed own an original MAC display for lipgloss! I auctioned it on ebay :-)

I organise the lipglosses by colour:

The larger glosses that don't fit in there are in the same place I store my other glosses which range from Illamasqua to Essence products:

Soooo, what do you think?

I hope you liked this post :-)

Updated Nail Polish Organisation

I changed my organisation scheme. The colours are now all after each other. What do you think?

I prefer it that way. :-)


Alverde and the curious case of their product range in Austria

Apparently I was wrong about the My Best Friend LE and the brush :-( They won't reach the Austrian stores..

I'm glad I have such smart readers!! Otherwise I would have waited and waited and turn crazy eventually. I wish I would know for sure why they don't release these products.

I asked on their facebook page and got some responses from other readers, that it is because of the limited space Alverde gets in Austria. Sounds realistic, but I still don't understand it to be honest.

I mean seriously? One brush uses up too much space?? And a LE display as well? The old LE displays are empty anyway..

Do you have any infos??

I want those items.... Anyone from Germany and wants to send them? lol

What would your dream online nail polish store look like??

Hey dear ones,

My friend Barbara, best nail design girl ever, is in the process of making an online store for nail polish and accessoires.

You have the possibility to say what you would want! I will forward all your ideas and wishes to her and maybe she can realise them!

She will sell OPI products, what a surprise *gg* and is in distributor conversations with many other brands as well.

My wish was Nfu Oh polishes. :-) What are your wishes??
