I've tried a couple of the Tigi Bed Head duos before and have been pleasantly surprised so I might cave and try the Colour goddess duo!

I once tried a hair scrub by a different brand and it was great but it got discontinued! it's been a while since I've seen a similar product so I am very pumped to put Matrix Sugar Scrub in my cart!
I usually just use shower gel to shave but I've always wanted to try the EOS Shave Gel but I just never got around to it, I've heard good things about it and lavender and jasmine sounds like a divine combi!

New in: Yves saint laurent rouge pur couture the mats 205 prune virgin

Hi blog

I normally go for the rouge volupte shine lipsticks, but recently I fell in love with this beautiful deep matte red with cool purplish undertones. it'looks a little shinny on the pictures but when I wear it, it is matte. It is smooth and non drying! It's going to be a winter essential <3

Went a little crazy with the picture, I usually just have it in my hand against a white wall, so I wanted to try something completely different, so I made a little setup. 

Haha my tooth gap, get the London look.... <3

High end Mac mineralize skinfinish VS drugstore MUA undress your skin highlighter♥

Hi blog♥

I felt like comparing two products this evening, or day wherever you are :))
In the back of my mind, I remembered someone compareing Mac mineralize skinfinish and the Mua highlighter and I belive someone said the mua one was a dupe for soft and gentle, which it is not, in my opinion.

They are both really pigmented and pretty, but they do not look alike.

Mac soft and gentle is a champane-gold while Mua Undress is a pink highligter with a purpleish sheen.
Both picks up on fingers and brushes really well, Mac is more of a creamy soft powder while mua is really hard and you would probably expect that you would have to rub really hard to get something on your brush which is not the case :))

On the skin: Mac Soft and gentle i find that sometimes it gives more of a glitter effect than a sheen, I think it depends on how much I use. Mua is perfect on the skin you really just glow, but I wish it was that champane-gold color as the mac one then it would have been perfect♥

Best value for money: I gotta say eventhough the texture and color of the mac one is Better/prettier, Mua is the winner it is so inexpensive like 3£ and it never glittery always just shiney, which I wish the mac one was♥

6 beauty myths you should know about :))

Hi blog

so i´ve been surfing around on the web today because I´m in my summerhouse. been in the water and after that, there is not much else to do, But i felt like researching beauty myths because i Looove to read about  that stuff, what oils do for your hair and that shit :)) and here is some of the stuff i read and i think it´s quite interesting :))

1. Not removing your mascara will cause your eyelashes to fall out.

This is acually true, as scary and wired as it sound. Leaving your mascara on for longer periods of time will clog up the the follicles in your eyelids, causing them to possibly become infected and make your eyelashes fall out. Ewww groose  ://

2. Makeup Causes Breakouts

Not true, poor hygiene does.  Mistakes like falling asleep with your makeup on, not cleaning your brushes often enough.  This makes me doubt the rumors about Macs face product clogs up your pores and cause you to break out? Hmm :II

3.  Shaving makes hair grow back thicker     
FALSE and yaaay!! I am pretty tired of having to wax my annoying dark baby hairs on my upper lip all the time, probably won´t stop but now I will have an alternative to when I´m really lazy or is out of wax strips.

Razors may get a bad rep but it’s so undeserved. Shaving has absolutely no effect on hair growth or thickness. Why people have a tendency to think this, is because the razor cuts the hair straight across the shaft which is why stubble feels stiffer.

4. You know your skin is clean when it squeaks

False. This beauty myth probably originated back in the day when cigarettes were considered good for your health, wich you probably know is soooo wrong. The truth is, if your face feels tight or uncomfortable in any way you’re either using the wrong product for your skin type, or you’re over-doing it.

5. It's good when your products tingle skin.

This sensation is your skin telling you it is being irritated, not helped.
That familiar tingling sensation is actually just your skin responding to irritation, resulting in inflammation. Products that produce that sensation can actually damage your skin's healing process, make scarring worse, cause collagen and elastin to break down, and increase the growth of bacteria that cause pimples.

6. Your skin adapts to products you use and eventually stop working.

Skin doesn't adapt to skin-care products any more than your body adapts to a healthy diet

If salad and carrots are healthy for you they are always healthy, even if you eat them every day. The same is true for your skin, if you were using a product that was irritating your skin and then switched to another one that didn´t, you would have an amazing change but later your skin would be balanced so it wouldn’t improve your skin further, but contain your fabulous  skin!

In love with my shoes + tips to make heels more comfortable :))

Hi blog :))

so I got my lovely shoes!! ang really wanted to show you, but since my last post was about them too I have included some tips well only two, to make walking in high heels, wedges etc. ;))♥

Tape your 3rd and 4th toes together ( the little and the middle)

 Yes this sounds strange but, and  when i read it I was like "are you kidding me" but no but this makes high heels more comfortable,  medical tape would be best cause it will stay better when you begin to sweat.

The science: at the base of the 3rd and 4th toe is where a nerve splits,  causing pain to come more easily. Also, wearing high heels or ill fitting shoes causes the bone to rub against the nerve or place excessive pressure on the nerve or place excessive pressure on the ball of the foot. :))

2 use gelpads 

Allmost everywhere you can buy gel pads for your shoes, it´s like a little cushion making it softer to walk on, i don´t know this for sure but you could try both at the same time maybe it will double the Comfort :))♥ 
The gelpads I´m planning on buying :))♥
