Something With Orange and the New Black…

As the air gets warmer and the sun shines brighter I’ve noticed I’ve been gravitating towards lighter colors both in my wardrobe, as well as in my make-up stash.

Here’s three of my current faves all in a suspiciously similar shade of pale tangerine. You’ve seen the Sephora blush in Orange Pop, as well as the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in 02 about a million times on here, so no surprises there. What’s new though is Essie’s Resort Fling that a cute little easter bunny (hi mami) snuck into my egg basket.

What’s your favourite color of the moment, and any more spring-y nail polish shades I should add to my collection?

Used Up and Repurchased

Because I have been using up quite a few products lately I thought I would share the ones that have made their way back into my cupboards.
First up we have the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo Cleanser. This is probably the most gentle cleanser I own and I always go back to whenever my skin is acting up a bit. It’s a liquid-y cream that you massage into your skin to take off your make-up. It doesn’t contain perfume which is perfect for sensitive skin as it stops the skin from drying out. It isn’t the greatest cleanser ever invented but a trusty option to keep on your shelve!

At night I like to exfoliate my skin with a chemical peeling instead of a physical one. I’ve noticed my face doesn’t feel all tight and tense after using this as opposed to other peelings I’ve tried so I decided to repurchase the Avène Cleanance K Gel-Cream. It smells fresh and slightly zingy and makes my skin feel ultra smooth after applying this. I started incorporating this a while ago and have definitely seen an improvement on my skin!

A product I’ve been using for probably almost ten years now are the Balea Eye Make-Up Remover Pads. I prefer the oil-free version as they don’t leave my eye-area all greasy but in return they do a rubbish job at removing waterproof mascara. I believe I have used them every single day for the past years as they are fuss-free, take off everything that sits on my eyes and is an absolute bargain at 1,25€ for I think 50 pads.

My holy grail of handcare is without a doubt the L’Occitane Hand Cream with 20% Shea Butter. This stuff smells amazing and really works magic on my hands. It is very moisturizing but also sinks into the skin quite fast making it perfect for an on-the-go girl like me. I like having soft hands but still want to be able to pick things up without them slipping through my fingers – enter this gem. I always have a miniature version of this in my hand bag and will definitely invest in the full size version for the home.

On to make-up, this Lacura Eyebrow pencil in Blonde is probably the cheapest eye-brow pencil I own. But let me tell you, this stuff is gooood! I got mine at Aldi, a really cheap discounter supermarket which I normally wouldn’t purchase make-up from. After hearing many great reviews on YouTube and other German blogs I had to have it and it is really great. Perfect color match, not too hard or too soft and a steal at 2,49€!
