One of the best words in any language has got to be “free” or “gratis” in German. Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of stuff for “gratis” at the drugstore and I think I need to share these with you before anything else because they could be gone quicker than they appeared.
Another week another collective haul. I must say though, I had quite a bit of self control, nonetheless here was my week at the drugstore. Continue reading
Happy Father’s Day! I know this post is super early but I wanted to share this with you ASAP. Kosmetik4less.de is having a Father’s Day special by offering free shipping on orders of €10 or more with the code: KVAVK4L.
Normally it’s a €25 minimum and requires at least one product from Makeup Revolution or I Heart Makeup. It’s free shipping within Germany or €7 to all EU countries, a €3.90 discount, which is a better deal than the 10% coupons they give (with the code FREUE15 until the end of May fyi).
This offer is only valid for today so if you’ve had you’re eye on just one or two things, this is the day!
Just a quick update today: I am now (or will be soon) on Bloglovin’! I’ve never used Bloglovin’ before, I’ve been using the Feedly app for Mac to round up all the blogs I follow but I see so many people using Bloglovin’ I’m finally learning how to use it. If there are any bugs or problems let me know, or help a girl a out, please!
I will try to get an actual product/beauty post up in a few hours or tomorrow (even though it’s a holiday here, I’ll be blogging).
When Essence came out with their Love & Sound LE I couldn’t help but roll my eyes. The collection was inspired by summer music festivals but looking at the display and the press materials it looked more like it was inspired by the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival a.k.a. Coachella a.k.a. Chella a.k.a. one of the most annoying times of year for me. Why? Because I actually grew up in the Coachella Valley and have watched the festival evolve into the monstrosity that it is today (and yes, I am grumpy about all the traffic caused by festival going hipsters).
However I did purchase a few items from the collection and thought I’d share them with you now that they are on clearance in most stores. Continue reading
I’m currently working on a skin care routine post but first I thought I’d show a product that will definitely not be mentioned in there. It’s not that it’s a bad product but it’s a product that didn’t work for me and made me take a closer look at my daily routine and actually led to my current routine. This is also the product I dropped a hint about in my P2 5 in 1 Protection + Care Base post, so without further ado!
Happy Sunday ya’ll! And being Sunday every store is closed in Germany and I have nothing better to do than to recap my week at the drugstore, and man was it a busier week than usual for me. I guess this is a sort of “collective haul” post and a sneak peak at some possible posts to come 😉 Continue reading
Seriously, has anyone heard of the brand “Max and More” before? I came across this brand a few weeks ago and have not been able to find much information about them save in Dutch. My German is bad enough and now I had to figure out reviews in Dutch, joy. I picked up the cheapest product and took it home to test out. Continue reading
Fun fact: with the exception of Maybelline’s Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser here and there to blur my pores, I have never used a face primer in my life. In the last couple of months that I’ve become serious about makeup I’ve noticed that a lot of people use a primer to increase the longevity of their makeup. While perusing my favorite makeup message board I saw that practically every FOTD included a primer and I wondered if there was something I was missing. Well that was about to change.

About two months ago I found out about Kosmetik4Less, a German online makeup store based in Hamburg with a wide variety of brands and products and reasonable shipping. For the next month I compiled my first wish list and saved my loose change in my “Beauty Jar” and after hours of deliberating here are the final products I ordered. Continue reading
