Since all beauty topics are definitely coming up short, I thought it was about time I shared a fall look with you (before the whole outfit goes online). Of course, I’ll talk a bit about the products I used too. ;)
I used two of → Givenchy’s “Vinyl” fall collection pieces, the “Metallic Reflection” palette * and the “Rouge Intense” lipstick *, and added a few Givenchy face products for a straight line through the look. It’s all about mixing pink and purple tones with bright red and shiny vinyl black. I kind of forgot that I got such an eye liner, so I used my → all-time favorite from Rouge Bunny Rouge, but Givenchy also offers a great → vinyl liner in their collection.
What a delightful surprise! I read the description of the fragrance and knew that this would be something that I’d love. I guess I really know myself and my taste very well – when I opened the package and first smelled the fragrance, my thoughts became reality. I fell in love with this scent and don’t want to miss it ever again on my perfume shelf (I just have to figure out how to put it there as it’s full and I actually don’t want to remove other fragrances – tough blogger life, huh?). I’m pretty sure that if you also love clean, fresh and floral fragrances, after my little review you’ll want to have it too. It’s just perfect – promise!
I’ve got this very special obsession called lipsticks. I love all kinds of colors, finishes, textures and new things that brands come up with (like liquid lipsticks – they’re great!). But there are a few go-to lipsticks that I really adore from the bottom of my heart and today’s “Five Favorites” is all about them…
Okay, so step by step I want to bring back the beauty topics – they’re still very important to me, but somehow I just haven’t wanted to write so much about them for a long time. One reason probably was the feedback (even before the comments were disabled) – I spent a lot of time writing my reviews and nothing came back (I wasn’t sure if you really liked the posts or if you were interested in them at all). Also, of course it’s nice to get all those free PR samples and try new things constantly (and I’m absolutely thankful for these possibilities!), but that’s all – the work (and believe me – you can ask any good beauty blogger – it’s not only about receiving something for free, trying it once and writing how cool the product is!) is never paid. Don’t get me wrong, my blog is something I do with pleasure and I love it, it’s my passion, but it is also a business for me, so: doing it all for free is not an option, as I really try to do it for a living. This, by the way, is one of the reasons why I only write about things that I really love and can clearly recommend to you (even though there’s always a chance that someone doesn’t like the products as much as I do!). I don’t want to spend my time writing about how bad something is, that’s why I pick out my favorites, things that really satisfy my beauty needs and that convince me of their quality.
But I heard you: almost everybody wants the beauty section back and I don’t want to let you wait for it forever. So here is a first try of a comeback: my five favorite foundations (at the moment, but they have been for quite some time!) – plus: a newcomer and my all-time favorite, which I actually shouldn’t show as the color isn’t available anymore (but that doesn’t mean that the foundation isn’t great for you in your own color!). This is not supposed to be a review, so don’t expect detailed information on these products but my opinion (which might be a little affected by my love for them!) about them. ;)
