Review: Nuxe Face Cleansing and Makeup Removing Gel

I discovered this makeup removing gel by Nuxe shortly after using up my beloved Banila Co. Clean It Zero. I needed a new product to remove my makeup and sunblock after a long day spent out and about. My requirements were not too complicated – a gentle, non-dehydrating, oil-based formula – but I still couldn’t find anything perfect in pharmacies/drugstores. The only thing that came close was Nuxe Face Cleansing and Makeup Removing Gel.

Favourite Makeup Discoveries of 2016

This post is way overdue. I’ve been having it on my mind for the longest time but sadly couldn’t post it any time sooner. In early 2016, I started using more makeup and relatives quickly found some of my favourite makeup items that I love using this year, too. Some are part of the daily rotation while others are meant for special occasions only. Any way you look at them – they’re my favourites!

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

This foundation stole my heart back in February 2016 but I only started using it in November. It truly is a weightless foundation because it feels like second skin and you don’t need to apply a lot of it to achieve medium-to-full coverage. I apply three drops, tops. While it’s called luminous, I find it to be more matte but then it’s not chalky or heavy, especially if you apply it to well-moisturised skin.

Hello Waffle: Kitty Kingdom Eyeshadows

Every time I tell myself that I really don’t need any more eyeshadows or pretty much any other make-up item, I come across something that sparkles my interest and turns it into a bonfire. Continue reading “Hello Waffle: Kitty Kingdom Eyeshadows”

Why Indie Cosmetics?

As you’ve probably noticed already, I’m rather keen on alternative, independent beauty products. I discovered this post on Reddit a long while back and I decided to write a proper blog post about it in case anyone wondered why I decided to go down this rabbithole.

New In #1

These are the products I’ve bought recently. As you can see, it’s a mix of beauty and fitness items so hopefully everyone will find something interesting to check out. Please bear in mind it’s my first time doing anything like this so the post might not be as coherent as it’s supposed to be. The pictures aren’t stellar, I know, but they will look better once I edit them on my laptop. 🙂

I was looking for some blog ideas and found Brittany Lesser’s post over here. It’s a pretty nifty idea so I thought I’d write a post like that, too. Perhaps an update every so often would be welcome, too?
