Merry Christmas…


Today is magical day. OK, let’s forget about weather that is nothing like winter weather should be. Outside is raining, we have fog, autumn temperatures … But it can’t be helped – we can not control the weather. Maybe we’ll have snowflake or two tomorrow – who knows. Dear readers, I wish you Merry Christmas. My mom always told me ...

Flormar Holographic polish no.804 swatch

A while ago Mademoiselle C. sent me Flormar Holographic polish no. 804. I hope this beauty will lift her spirits up … at least a little bit after all the difficulties she had with the technical side of her blog. Flormar Holographic collection consists of duochrome, holo glitter polishes … but fine holo particles are few and far in between. ...

Review and swatches: Catrice – Glamourama

Swatch: Catrice - Glamourama: En Vogue, Drama, Baby!

Glamourama is a limited edition by Catrice. The collection as a whole didn’t impress me. It’s nice, but nothing special. I bought two eyeshadows and one nail polish. The eyeshadows are nice and well pigmented. I don’t have any complaints about them. The limited edition eyeshadows are bigger than the ones from the regular line, but the price in Germany ...

Review and swatches: Alverde – My Best Friend LE (lipsticks)

Swatch: Alverde - My Best Friend LE - lipsticks Nadja, Kathrin, Tula

I came across the new limited edition display by Alverde. The collection is called My Best Friend. I swatched almost everything in the store (there were no testers for the gel eyeliners) and at the end I “only” bought three lipsticks. I mean, the eyeshadow palettes were heavily pigmented and they felt nice. I was tempted to buy at least ...
