Lookfantastic Beauty Box - The Birthday Edition

  Discovering beauty boxes...

I've always prefered travel-sized makeup and skincare products, because I like trying out new things and almost never stick to a single product for a longer period of time. I still remember how excited I was when I discovered beauty boxes. My first ever Beauty Box was Douglas Box of Beauty and I still enjoy the box and its content.
Beauty Boxes to me are especially appealing because they offer luxury sizes of more expensive and high end products sometimes. I can test these out before I actually commit to buying fullsize. On the long run I save loads of money that way, because some products just don't preform as well as they claim, so trying things thoroughly out before buying them is great. I won't generalize and say all beauty boxes are great and offer a good quality-price ratio, but the ones I buy, definitely are (I'm referring to the only ones I like currently - Douglas Box of Beauty and Lookfantastic Beauty Box).

Current Beauty Favourites (August)

It's been a while since I talked about my favourite beauty products. This post includes some of the makeup products that I've been loving (and using) throughout the entire summer. And I'm quite aware it's still August but I definitely won't be buying anything in upcoming weeks. :D

Lookfantastic Beauty Box "Pretty in Paradise" July Edition

Summertime is the perfect occasion for trying out new beauty products in practical travel friendly sizes. I'll not lie, I prefer travel sizes over fullsizes during anytime of the year, simply because I get tired of using the same products over and over again. In my previous posts I've already mentioned some of the beauty boxes I really like (as dm Box and Douglas Box of Beauty which is my absolute favourite). This month I'm trying out Lookfantastic's Beauty Box Pretty in Paradise July Edition which includes skincare and makeup products for summer: everything from sunscreen to glowing, healthy looking skin and hair.

NYX EPIC INK LIP DYE: Swatches and review (+ GIVEAWAY)

As you probably noticed on my social media accounts I recieved a huge package from NYX Austria filled with some of their newly launched products. Today I'll be reviewing the NYX Epic Ink Lip Dye  - a hybrid between a normal liquid lipstick and lip stain. The range includes 12 shades. Some of the shades are super wearable (for me), others are not exactly the kind of colour I would normally wear, but there's definitely at least one shade that would appeal to anyone.

MuLondon Moisturiser: Multitasker in skincare

I remember reading about MuLondon products on Jana's blog. I immediately googled the brand because I was being curious about it. If I'm honest I've never been conscious about ingredients and what I put on my skin. I tried to be, but I also like pretty packaging and I'm not 100% immune to marketing of all the big and shiny skincare corporations (with their "magic" ingredients and unclear politics towards animal testing etc.) that society seems to approve. 
This is why MuLondon spoke to me. Their moisturisers have a very short list of ingredients and you don't have to be an expert or have a PhD in chemistry to understand the listed ingredients. Sometimes it really feels good to know what exactly you're putting on your skin. It's also nice to know exactly where and how a product is made. MuLondon range is certified organic, cruelty-free and vegan (& also a member of 1% for the Planet and is a Certified B Corporation).

L.O.V Spring 2017 Update (New products)

L.O.V recently launched some new products and I got three of them. In general I've had positive experience with this brand. I love their modern yet minimalistic packaging and good quality at relatively low price. I was particulary impressed by L.O.V LipAffair Lipsticks in shade 521 Verena's Rose and 500 Sina's Nude. Pigmentation is great, lipsticks are formulated scent free and they're very comfortable to wear. Price is around 10€ each.
