July Haul

Hey there :)

As I have been a really good girl, well kind of really good, I haven´t purchased very much make up this month, I was more looking for clothes and shoes. However, I´d like to show you the items I bought in July.

MUA Eyebrow Pencil "blonde": I´ve featured it in my last empties post and repurchased it as soon as it was empty. It is easy to apply, matches my eyebrow colour very well and is really cheap. I love it!

Collection 2000 Concealer: I´ve heard so much about this concealer! I always tried to stay strong, but when the last Boots offer (3 for 2) was on, I just couldn´t resist and I´m happy I bought it, as it has a really good coverage and stays in place the whole day. It is also really inexpensive. A very good concealer!

Essie "Naughty Nautical": I love Essie nail polishes and this colour caught my eye. Usually, I wear a nail polish again every couple of weeks, as I just got too many, but this one I´ve been wearing constantly on either my fingers or toes. I´m just so in love!

Maybelline Colour Tattoo "Pink Gold": I had my eye on this for ages now, but I was always too scared, that it would look too similar to Chanel "Emerveille", but after I compared them in the shop, they don´t. So I bought it and I´m so happy about it. It has a nice texture, applies really easily and stays the whole day.

Mac "Sizzlin Diva": I went to Portsmouth with my friend and found a make up outlet with old Mac LEs, so obviously, I had to take a look. I´ve been really good, as I just bought this single item. I always wanted to try a creme eyeshadow by Mac and I really liked the colour as it can be build up to a darker bronze. I´m really excited to play with it a bit.

Mac Mineralized Blush "Simmer": My first mineralized product by Mac and I really like it. The colour is amazing, the texture really soft and the pigmentation just stunning. Really have to get more of these.

What did you pick up in July? Do you love the Mac mineralized products as much as I do?

Empties #2

Hey there :)

I can´t believe it! July is over! And in August, a lot will be happening in my life, I´m going home to Germany for a 2-week holiday, I move and I start a new job. I´m so excited! And what else does it mean? Yes, it´s time for a new Empties post. This month I tried to use up some make up products, I´ve been having for ages and it worked.

Shave Gel Sainsbury´s: I´m always using this one, it´s my go-to shaving gel and I don´t know how often I already repuchased it. It only has a light scent and moisturizes my legs while shaving and it´s really inexpensive. Repurchased

Batiste Dry Shampoo: My 7th bottle, I still love it and I already talked about this one in my last Empties post. Repurchased

Simple Facial Toner: I don´t really have big problems with my skin, so I don´t need a toner that helps with pimples and spots. I simply use it to refresh my skin in the morning and to take of the last bits of make up after my cleanser. It is 100% alcohol free and I´m always using it. Repurchased

Boots Cleansing Wipes: I´ve been using them for the last year now and it is perfect for removing the first bits of make up. Repurchased

Mandara Spa Bodybutter: It was a present and I didn´t like the smell of cream, cos that is how this one smells. It moistened my skin quite well, but I just don´t like the scent. 

Essence Better than Gel nails Topcoat: A clear topcoat, which I have already repurchased 4 times. Unfortunately, they changed the formula, so I don´t really know if I will repurchase it again or not. 

Essence "like a day in candy shop" perfume: My brother gave it to me and I always had it with me when I went away on the weekends. It is a nice soft scent, which is not too heavy. Perfect for every day.

Alverde Eyebrowgel: My favourite eyebrowgel as it is transparent and lasts the whole day. I´ve been using it for 2 years already and just repurchased my 5th package of it. 

MUA Eyebrow pencil "blonde": The exact colour of my eyebrows, lasts the whole day, easy to apply and very cheap. What else to say?! Repurchased

NYX Eyebrow pencil "taupe": This was the one I used before I found the MUA one and I loved it, but  unfortunately, it is a tiny bit too dark for me.

Urban Decay Primer Potion: I bought this one over a year ago and loved it, but I have other primers, which are as good as this one and way cheaper. Top, but I won´t repurchase it.

What have you used up recentely? 

Lots of love
