Tested: Clothing Store Make Up!

Image
For people like me who can't afford going on a massive shopping spree in Sephora, Make-Up that can be bought in Clothing Stores such as Primark and H&M is quite convenient, however it also has a really bad reputation. I decided to review some items I bought in High Street stores to let you know about the Do's and Don't's in buying Make-Up that doesn't eat up your whole paycheck.


First off, I'm going to talk about the Powder Brush I bought at Primark this winter. I was on the hunt for rose gold or copper make-up brushes for a long time and this one looked pretty amazing. Turns out the brush is super soft but doesn't really do its job. The fluffiness of the brush makes it really hard to get product on your face and doesn't really blend Bronzer as well. I found out it works amazing for getting exess powder/bronzer/blusher off your face though and it looks lovely on my vanity!
You can't really see it that well on the picture displayed above, but th…

Where is the love?

I was out in London with my boyfriend having a romantic picnic at Hyde Park. We felt so happy and so free, just like all of those couples next to us enjoying the sun, the food and each others company. Somehow we received the bad news about a shooting that has apparently happened in the U.S. I went online to find out more about this tragic incident and the further I read the more I wanted to scream out in pain and horror and sadness.
 Seeing those images of innocent young people losing their lives because they openly expressed who they love really affected me. Living in a big city, only surrounding myself with people who tolerate, accept and welcome all sorts of sexualities, skin colours, ethnicities, genders, etc. I simply forgot that we live in a world that can sometimes be so extremely cruel. I took the love my friends and family have been giving me for granted simply because I never experienced someone discriminating me because of who I was.

Natural & Organic Beauty: Drugstore Edition

You know that I usually make most of the beauty products I own myself, however, sometimes I don't have the time to do that or I am genuinely enjoying a store bought product. I usually avoid these, since many brands claim to be natural and organic when they're actually not.
Today I want to present you some brands that don't have a negative impact on the environment and are good for us as well.

I love Ziaja products! I've tried their shower gels and moisturisers and am absolutely in love with them! I also really like the simplistic design of their packaging, which looks super modern!

To be honest, I'm not entirely sure if you can get hold of this product if you're not from Austria or Germany, but if you do, I'd definitely recommend to do so! Kneipp is my go-to brand for luxurious pamper evenings, especially this gem! The fresh scent of lemon is a must have in summer for me!

As mentioned above, I'm absolutely in love with Ziaja products. Even though I usua…
