When I was in Germany this summer I picked up two of the P2 Glow Touch Compact Blushes. They had always caught my eye and since P2 tends to change up their product line twice a year I decided to pick up two shades before they were potentially discontinued. Today’s shade is Touch of Peony, probably one of my favorite summer blushes. It may be fall, but I haf to share. Continue reading
A year after my introduction to contouring I think I finally got the hang of it and found the perfect product to boot. Among all of the contouring palettes and products hitting the drugstore last month, the Wet n Wild Megaglo Contour Palette is the one I picked up to test. Its affordability was a deciding factor but I could tell it was going to be good just from looking at it. Continue reading
It is not often that I have a “YouTube made me buy it!” type of purchase, much less a post, but that is exactly what this is.

I am happy to announce that the glossary page is now up!
When I first started contemplating a blog one of the first things that came to mind was a glossary or chart with translations of common words found on beauty products. I imagined an international student going to DM by themselves for the first time looking for face wash and buying the pink bottle because it’s pretty, only to find weeks later that the pretty face wash is completely wrong for their skin. (OK, maybe I didn’t imagine it and that was me my first week in Germany…)
While some words are pretty straight forward (ex. poren, shampoo) some are less clear like “Dekorativ Kosmetik” or translate differently like “Makeup.” You might be thinking, “That’s what Google Translate is for!” And you’re right, if you have Wi-Fi or good cell reception but sometimes you don’t and sometimes you want to walk in, get what you need, and get out. If you know what you’re looking for it might be easier asking for help too.
So I hope this glossary helps you write your drugstore list and keep in mind it is a work in progress. I basically grabbed what I could find in my bathroom and picked out the keywords. If you have a suggestion or correction leave a comment!
