• Review | Oil Pulling •

Even though I’m a blogger and receive many samples of every kind for tests and reviews, I still am a curious girl who likes new stuff and shopping and buys things that are interesting – it’s not always about sponsoring. ;) That’s what happened to me with → Cocowhite. My dad has been oil-pulling for a while and I also read about it on some friends’ blogs, like → Caterina and → Anna, and when I had Cocowhite in my Instagram recommendations, I was curious to finally try the little sachets myself. I ordered a two-week course with all available flavors and couldn’t wait to do it for the first time. Gladly, my package from the UK arrived pretty fast and I finished the 14 days on Friday, so here’s a very fresh review.

• Gucci “Bamboo” (Eau de Parfum) •

Gucci “Bamboo” was already launched some time ago, but since it’s not limited, you can read my review of this lovely fragrance today. It’s an → eau de parfum and to be honest, I can’t wait to see this available as an eau de toilette. I love the scent, but for me it could be a little bit lighter and fresher – I just prefer eau de toilettes, that’s a personal thing. :)

• Review | Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani – Lips & Cheeks •

• Review | Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani – Lips & Cheeks •

It’s time for another beauty review! I already reviewed the → Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette and today I’ve got almost all colors of the lipstick and lip liner range for you, plus a first glance at the blush palette.

Since the eye shadows that Gwen created with Urban Decay were mostly neutral, I was expecting the lip colors to be bright and colorful. Actually, the collection has a lot of red shades, plus some pink and nude, and – of course! – it includes the absolutely typical Gwen color: a wonderful, bright and matte red. The → lip liner colors match those of the lipsticks, so actually nothing that’s too interesting, but they’re good and extremely long-lasting (with a bit of a stain effect), so that’s all I want to say in this review.

The → blush palette is probably the most varied piece of the whole Gwen Stefani collection, since the colors are pretty different, with different finishes. But, as is the case with the eye shadow palette, there are a few neutrals. For fair skin like mine, this palette is also good for contouring, so this is a small bonus point. ;)
