My favourite cleansers or how to erase your day from your face

Long time no see? Well, I’m sure you’re thinking that after the last avocado toast post there was nothing more to add to this blog. Well, even though #avotoastsarelife, there are other reasons. Have you ever tried to do your laundry but on the way to the washing machine a sock falls out and then you bent down to gather the sock and then a bra falls out as well and then you try to pick it from the floor and another sock falls out and when you finally have everything in your hands and you try to continue your way to the washing machine because you just want to do your laundry and get on with your life you hit your head with a piece of furniture and that hurts so much that you inevitably touch your head and therefore the perfect pile of dirty laundry collapses and all the socks fall out all over the floor? Well, that has been our life lately. So between work, appartment search, family issues and lots of …

Festive makeup

After a whole day packing, which we both hate, we are about to head home for Christmas. That means we are going to meet our families and friends which we haven’t seen for what it feels like ages.

But during the holidays if anyone remarks that I’m wearing red lipstick (in case I forgot the ten minutes I spent perfecting my lip liner, I guess) I can answer: Christmas! (You moron!) So today …

Au Naturel

Another palette? Yes, but this is different. Lancôme Absolu Nude Palette is the ultimate travel palette. It’s supposed to have everything you need for a no-makeup makeup in small sizes and with a compact packaging, therefore Lancôme claims it is perfect for travelling. So when two of my passions collide, beauty and travel, I have to see what comes out of it.  The palette covers almost everything you need: you can conceal and highlight, you can choose from eight different eyeshadow that go from neutrals to black, you can groom your brows and you have two lip products to choose. But let’s see if it really is everything you need when travelling…
