BEAUTY NEWS: Dior Addict Laquer Sticks

Hi guys,

Sorry for the missing content on the blog.
As I told you I’m on holiday in Tuscany – and right now I’m up in the mountains with no signal or wifi.
It has been killing me the last couple of days! But I’ve been filming a lot of good stuff for you, so as soon as I’ve got a steady wifi, I’m back online! Until then, I’ve wanted to share with you some of my favorite lipsticks at the moment.

The Dior Addict Laquer Sticks 

They’re so good and I like to use them different ways.
They’re super pigmented, which gives you a perfect covered color – but I also love to just dap a bit on the lips for a tint or pop of color. They’re good either way.

In the video I do a swatch on the whole range, so you can find your favorite.

Lots of love from Italy,

I’ve Found Myself a New Favorite Mascara

Do you have a hard time finding the right mascara? Yes? Well, me too. All the time.
I always use more than one mascara and I gladly mix brands and techniques.
But in a long time I’ve felt that I really missed a good one. Something that could change my lash game.
I was growing tired of my old favorite mascara – I know at some point I’ll always be back, cause that’s what you do when you really love something – but other times you need to break free and find some new favorite things to play with.

I’m always a bit skeptical when I’m introduced to new brands. Not because I wanna be rude, but because there are so many companies and new brands out there, that thinks they’ve figured out a new amazing thing to change the beauty industry.
Well, I mean, of course they need to believe that – and good for them. But it can confuse your hope and shadow your dreams. Your dreams of new products and new amazing possibilities.

Well, I’m happy to share with you my new mascara addiction!
And what’s better? It’s a Danish brand! Yay! I’m always in for supporting local –
and even more excited when the product is this good!

Guys, meet LØWÉN.

These mascaras became a part of my makeup routine the day after I got them. Not kidding.
I’s been a month now since I started playing with these products and me oh my!

Let me tell you this.
My lashes on my right eye looked like shit when I sat at a press lunch with Løwén and the sweet girls from Impression PR.
I had a few days ago played with a new mascara. And well, apparently it didn’t go so well.
Cause suddenly some of my lashes went missing and the rest snatched in half. Sad story. I know.

A week after, my lashes was almost back to normal after using these mascaras.
The best part is, that there are Argan Oil, Vitamin E and Biotinoyl in it,
which nourish and protect your lashes so they can grown longer and stronger.
I felt it right way, no kidding.

I’ve now come to an everyday ritual, where I use all three mascaras that they launched.
Sounds crazy, I know. But I really love them and I love the combo.

First I start out with ..

Beyond Volume & Curl Mascara, Løwén, 180 DKK HERE

.. to separate each lashes and make sure everyone of them are covered in the serum.

After that I use …

Unique Volume Mascara, Løwén, 150 DKK HERE

… to create volume by the roots

At last I move on to …

Perfection Length Mascara, Løwén, 150 DKK HERE

… to make my lashes long and spiky!

Of course you don’t have to use them all.
They can do their magic by themselves just fine!
Chose which one you need for your lashes and tell me what you think!

BEAUTY NEWS: Aurelia Probiotic Skincare

How cool are these products from Aurelia? So cute, right?
As you may know by now, I’m not always a fan of organic products.
I like the idea that there’s pure ingredients in what I use on my skin – I just haven’t always had the best experiences with it.
These products however, I really have gotten a thing for already!

The Aurelia products are BioOrganic skincare, which means they denotes a farming practice, which is like organic farming, a practice where no toxic chemicals (fertilizers, pesticides) are used in the process.
.. And of course these products are made from organic ingredients as well.

I’ve already tried a few of them – and I really really like them.
Some of them comes in a little beauty bag, that is perfect for travel.
So I think I’ll use them when I leave for Toscana next week.

The most exciting thing I’ve tried so far, is the cream deodorant. Sounds cool right?
It’s a powder based cream that you apply in your armpits with your fingers. Maybe this doesn’t sound so charming, but it’s a really good product. It keeps your skin dry, while absorbing sweat and kills any bacteria.
The scent is everything between lavender, peppermint and tea tree eucalyptus.
It really works wonders! You can buy all their products in Magasin.

Stay tuned on the other products.

So – great news from the fun and playful Benefit univers!
If you didn’t know their Benefit concealers before, now’s the time.

Last week I was at a Benefit Event, where they launched a new concealer .. The Airbrush Concealer!
If that wasn’t enough, they changed the packaging to this cute and cool pink look – and now all their concealers are called Boiing.
So if you can’t find your favorite concealer on these pictures, it’s simply because it look different.

The new Airbrush Concealer is super smooth and creamy to use. It’s like a little delicate mousse.
It really covers your whole face super good and gives you that airbrush effect, like the supermodels!
I only wish they made this concealer as a foundation .. I would die.

You need to try this out! It’s so good!
