Sleek Eye & Cheek Palette "Dancing til Dusk"

I got this little baby for christmas and had to show it to you. :-) There are two palettes available and mine is named "Dancing til Dusk".


You have two blushes, a muted orange and a blue toned shimmery pink and four nice neutral brown eyeshadows. 


There's also a brush and an applicator, but I never use those. For a quick fix on the go these still might be enough though. 


Swaaaatch time. All swatched beautifully and I had no fallout.




Lovely, right? I'm really happy with this palette. My mum got it via Amazon for 12€ which I think is definitely a fair price. :)

What do you think??

Love,
Valerie

MAC News and the neverending story of our Kitchen

Hey lovelies.

Sorry for the lack of posts, again, but we're currently living a nightmare.. We've been slowly renovating our house and the kitchen is some big part that's still missing.

Last week we started and ever since we're surrounded by so much dust, it feels like you're walking on the moon.. No chance in hell to take beautiful pictures.. Except of a complete IKEA kitchen in boxes.. *gg*

Look at my two men. :)





MAC is releasing some awesome stuff in the next couple of months and I wanted to share them with you.

Let's start with the best!!! In March,we will get MAC Toledo and I'm going to be at the counter first thing in the morning.


There are no infos yet, but I've seen this on Instagram - a freaking Cinderella collection!!!!


And if you're still sitting, look at the packaging of the upcoming summer collection. Gosh I love pretty packaging..




The other upcoming releases. A few glimpses.



Futuristic and awesome. :)



MAC's Red collection is small, but still gorgeous. I'm especially excited about the red eyeshadow. I love red.



The concealer range is getting bigger and bigger. I'm definitely going to get a closer look. :)


We've all seen the pics of the latest Viva Glam duo. Hot pink, what do you want more!?


Some new liners and lipsticks are awaiting us. MAC lipsticks are famous, let's see what the new ones will bring. :)

What do you think?? What are you looking forward the most???

Love,
Valerie

NOTD

To defy that depressing weather I went for a sparkling colour - China Glaze's "Atlantis".


It's such a gorgeous shade, but sadly mine's already thicker than honey..

What are you wearing on your nails today??

GOSH 9 Shades "To Enjoy in New York" Palette Swatches

As promised I'm gonna show you swatches of the GOSH 9 Shades "To Enjoy in New York" I bought in London. :-)



from left to right the three rows:





Sorry for the raindrops, I went outside to take good pictures and it started raining. *gg*

They are all smooth, lovely shades. They are gorgeous and even better in real life. I hope GOSH adds the palettes to their regular collection.

What do you think?

GOSH 9 Shades available in Austria!!

Uuuh I was so excited when I just saw this:


The 9 Shades palettes!!! I bought one in London a couple of months ago and am so excited that they are here now. Some pictures:

"To Play With In Vegas"



"To Have Fun in LA"



and the one I own "To Enjoy in New York" 


They cost 14,99€ here which is a bit more than  the £9.99 I paid in London, but I think it's still a great deal.

I will post swatches of the New York palette tomorrow so you can get a better look at it. :)

Love,

New Year's Blog & Beauty Resolutions

Hi guys!

It's 2015, can you believe it?! Personally, I'm quite happy to put 2014 behind me, it wasn't the best year for me and my family.

I hope you had a wonderful christmas, got a bunch of presents and celebrated the New Year in style.

Ours was relatively quiet an relaxed. :)


But now to the Blog Resolutions and what's to come:

  • I will start a new series called "Products Revisited" where I'll talk about products I have been using for a long time and give an updated opinion of them. Sometimes you change your mind about a product and I think this will be interesting and useful. :)
  • I'm gonna start posting Hairstyles and focus on Make Up Looks.
  • I will keep doing reviews and the occasional news simply because I like doing those a lot
Like so many others at the beginning of a new year I'm trying to loose weight again and in the course of that might share some workouts I'm doing and recipes I've tried, but I'm not yet completely sure how this will turn out, so no guarantees there. *g*

For now I guess that's it. :) I hope you come again and follow me on the journey through 2015.

Lots of love!
Valerie

Glossybox Christmas Box!

Hello lovelies,

Christmas is coming fast and if you're still looking for a gift, this might be it.


Glossybox released a Christmas box which is seperate from the normal subscription boxes. The box itself is a real treat, bordeaux velvet with a magnetic lid.

Let's take a look..



The christmas box includes 6 full size products.


We have:

  • -417 Energizing Cleansing Gel
  • Toni & Guy Glamour 3D Volumiser
  • Royal Apothic Tinties
  • Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow Duo in "Tinsel"
  • Uslu Airlines nail polish in XMS
  • Bottega Verde Make Up Base
Let's take a look at the lip tint, cause it is ridiculously gorgeous. It's almost too pretty.





Another product I swatched for you is the mineral eyeshadow duo:




I haven't used the other products yet, but I wanted to show you the content in time for christmas shopping. This box is most certainly gift-worthy. It is currently sold out, but I'll try to find out if there will be more available.

The box is either 25€ for subscribers or 35€ if you get the box alone without being subscribed.

Love,
Guinevere

Urban Decay in Vienna!

Hello lovelies,

I'm sure you aaallll know that Urban Decay finally arrived in Austria, but it's still news that deserves celebrating!

Urban Decay is one of those brands that are and always will be really special to me, because I first saw them in real life in the UK and I loved it. So when I was in town I just had to visit the Marionnaud where they have the counter and it blew me away!

I expected a tiny counter with not much to look at, but boy was I wrong! It's a whole area decorated with love, I was so excited, here are some pictures.





Look at that:








I mean do I need to say more??? Just wow. Lately, I've sort of had a lack of inspiration and missed that feeling of joy when it comes to make up, I guess that happens from time to time, but when I stood in that counter area it was all back - the joy, the excitement. I could have stayed for hours.

As you can see they have the Pulp Fiction LE and they will get the "Naked on the Run" palette and the new "Vice" palette!! I didn't expect that we would get the limited editions as well, another awesome fact.

Another thing I loved was the staff, so friendly and adorable. You need to meet Charlie, he's directly from Urban Decay and lovely, just the salesman you wish to have. I always think about working on a counter for a while, I would work with him and Urban Decay in a heartbeat. Maybe they are hiring... *gg*

All in all, it was great to be there, have the products right before your eyes and enjoy looking at everything. If you're wondering - the Marionnaud which has it is the one on Graben. Super easy to find, just get yourself in the U3, stop at Stephansplatz and take the stairs with the sign Graben on it and it's to your left side.

I'll be there soon again, I was with my hubby and since he hasn't got that love for make up ;-), I didn't want to let him wait.

Are you as excited as I am?? Did you visit it already? To my Austrian girls, Charlie told me that on Saturday there will be a feature on Seitenblicke. :)

I wanna go back.. but enough raving, have a great weekend and to all my American followers - I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving and are enjoying Black Friday.

Love,
Valerie
