Mind the gap

August 17, 2015

A tough combination

Dear reader,

Quite a gap, 2nd of Februari – 17th of August… During those six months, I studied, got a gym membership, studied, went on vacation, got a job, studied, wrote some articles for the magazine of the medical faculty – but yeah, mostly studying. Due to all of this I could not find time to swatch, to photograph, to review, to write, to do those things that come with blogging. It has been awfully quiet here on my blog, for which I am very sorry.

I’d love to say that I’m back now, but the truth is that during the next ten years I will (hopefully) still be a medical student and therefore I won’t have much spare time. I can say that I will try my hardest to write a beauty blog post every now and again – not just because I want this site to be a bit more alive but also because I myself simply cannot live without make up (your mind)!

Review: Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion Mascara

January 28, 2015

I don’t know why, but the word ‘fusion’ always makes me think of space ships and scientists.

However, this review isn’t about either of those – it’s about a mascara… The Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion Mascara!

Review: Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator

January 16, 2015

In my recent haul I showed you a beauty that I simply couldn’t resist buying after swatching it: the Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator. I don’t own many liquid highlighters (let alone peachy ones), so you may be able to understand that felt like I needed this in my life. The question is whether I still feel that way after having tried this product out for a few times…

Review: MUA Starry Night Eyeshadow Palette

December 18, 2014

In my opinion, eyeshadow palettes are some of the best make up items to collect. Nothing gets me excited like swatching a new eyeshadow palette – that is, if the quality of the eyeshadows is any good. Let’s take a look at this new Starry Night Eyeshadow Palette from the low-budget brand MUA…

A watch-inspired festive eye look

December 12, 2014

Today I’d like to show you a very special eye look! Recently I was recommended to view, an online auction website. A watch can sometimes be the perfect inspiration source for a fashion or make up look, which was the idea of this little project. Obviously I couldn’t refuse such a fun, creative project so I had a look around at their watches
