Gestern hatte ich Glück, denn der Postbote klingelte und brachte mir überraschend ein Päckchen von essence! Enthalten waren Produkte der neuen Limited Edition “Beach Cruisers”, die ich für euch natürlich sofort näher unter die Lupe genommen habe.
When I saw the press release from Alverde about the upcoming Limited Edition “Vintage Rose” I was very excited. I bought two pieces of it the other day, which I want to show you now.
Hand Butter, 2,95€
This hand butter for very dry skin smells so good! It contains rose oil and shea butter. My hands are very soft after using it and it helps to avoid dry patches on my skin. This is my favourite product of the whole limited edition, maybe I will go and pick up another one.
Eyeshadow “Vintage Taupe”, 2,25€
This is the colour I like the most, when it comes to eyeshadows. As you probably know I’m not a big eyeshadow lover, but every now and then I buy one. The colour is a greyish brown with a light shimmer. The eyeshadow can be applied smoothly, but the pigmentation is not the best and I need much of the product to make it visible on my eyes. I would not buy it again, as I’m a little bit disappointed about the pigmentation.
Have you bought anything from the Vintage Rose LE?
October is almost over that means it’s time to write something about my monthly favourites. To mix it up a little bit, I will show you my beauty favourites and also my general life favourites.
1. MAC Blush “Fleur Power”, 23,50€
This is a colour that goes with everything. Although it’s pink, it’s not THAT bright, so you can use it in October as well as in May. I like it especially for its staying power, it stays on the whole day.
2. Maybelline Jade The Rocket Volum’ Express Mascara, 9,99€
I love this mascara! I have quite short lashes and it gives them a great volume and length. I have had a lot more expensive mascaras in the past and they don’t do their job as good as the Rocket mascara.
3. EOS Lipbalm “Mint”, 4$
I can’t imagine living without this little green thing. It is such a great Lipbalm with great moisture. I bought in in New York and I’m sad that I got only this one. I use it once every day when I go to bed and that’s enough because my lips stay super soft.
4. Catrice Eyeshadow “Oh It’s Toffeeful!”, 2,79€
Normally, I’m not a eyeshadow person. I don’t wear it often, but this month I bought this golden one from Catrice and have used it a lot. I like that the shimmer is very subtle and elegant with no glitter in it.
5. Essence Long Lasting Lipstick “Natural Beauty”, 2,29€
I bought this lipstick a few weeks ago as you can see in my latest Haul. It’s a great my-lips-but-better colour for everyday and I wore it al lot in october. The staying power isn’t the best, but it’s ok.
1. TV Series “Castle”
When I saw the first two episodes of Castle I hated it, but then I got used to it and now I’m obsessed. I watched the first three seasons in October and now I’m already watching the fourth. Special thanks to my lovely friend Lisa, who infected me <3
2. Yankee Candles
For me it’s hard to find good candles, unfortunately I get headaches from most of them. But with the Yankee ones I’m fine. I can’t really decide which flavour is my favourite, but this month I have been liking Sandalwood Vanilla and White Christmas a lot.
3. Teekanne Hüttentraum
I’m a huge tea lover. I drink a lot more tea than coffee. When I’m sitting in front of my laptop I always have a cup of tea beside me. This flavour is very wintery and tastes like oranges and grapes. I have used up almost two packages this month!
