The Body Shop Early-Harvest Raspberry Body Scrub

The new "Early-Harvest Raspberry" line at The Body Shop is to die for! What interested me the most is this body scrub that literally looks like raspberry jam. I went to see the tester at the store, and of course, ended up buying it.

Have you ever felt that you'd like to take care of your lips, but lip balm simply isn't enough?

Well, I have. This fall I finally did something about it and started exploring all these fascinating lip care products. And my lips have never looked this nice before!

Review: MAC Prep+Prime CC Colour Correcting SPF 30 in Neutralize

This spring MAC updated their Prep+Prime line with new CC creams!

What are they?

"A multitasking formula that evens skin tone, increases luminosity and inhibits oily shine while protecting from harmful UVA/UVB rays. This moisturizing primer also keeps skin fresh and hydrated throughout the day." (From maccosmetics.com)

Sounds good, right? They come in 4 shades and are available now in permanent collection!

Neutralize - Yellow
Illuminate - Lavender
Adjust - Beige
Recharge - Apricot

I only have one shade to review & swatch, though, but I used MAC Prep + Prime Fortified Skin Enhancer in 'Illuminate' before I got this, so at least I can somewhat compare these two shades. (They are almost the same product, MAC just added more colors and upgraded them!)

Guest post: The Things a Girl Just Can’t Do Without

There are some things which girls like, some things which girls need and some things which some girls just cannot live without – okay, not all girls, but I did say some girls.

Top of the list has to be her cell phone, never mind girls, I don’t think many boys would get very far without their cell phones either. Long gone are the days when a cell phone was something which was actually used to make calls and speak to other people – these days the cell phone is used for texting, listening to music, surfing the internet, checking out the sports scores, watching movies, taking photos / videos, finding your way around a new town and keeping up to date with the latest gossip on the various social networks. No wonder so many people won’t leave home without it – they’d probably get lost and never find their way back again.

Quick review & swatches: my MAC spring 2014 products!

If there's one brand I'm always up to date with it's MAC! I actually receive their press info on my mail, so it's hard not to be. :) Almost everything they release is limited edition so that somehow makes everything more exciting too.

These two products are from their A Fantasy of Flowers spring collection! To be honest, I feel like I'm somewhat late with this post already, but I hope you don't mind since MAC products are always pretty to look at!

Skinfood Spring 2014

Happy March! Time to kick off these spring themed posts!

This year Korean brand Skinfood has released a super cute looking spring collection called Milky Rose. The concept is light and feminine make-up. Cream blushers that can be used without any foundation, pink & coral tones, rose print on packaging - the moment I saw these I lost interest in any other spring collection I had been eyeing.

Where to buy?

The products are all available on Ebay and are shipped from Korea. Just in case you didn't know - packages from Korea usually arrive in 10 working days. Before ordering you should make sure how many products you can order without paying extra for customs. For example, in Estonia you have to pay for customs if the value is above 21,98€. If you want to order more than that, I'd suggest to place two orders, second after the first one is shipped. Or find a different seller....there are many tricks, haha.

But now, let's have a closer look of the products!

Instagram shots #1

This title makes it sound like I just discovered instagram, but the truth is I was on instagram from the day 1 the android version was launched. If you know me you would know that I'm obsessed with things like newest android, new apps, etc. And yes, I still use Android and will probably use it for a while...

(I actually have a lot to say on android vs. ios. Maybe I should have a tech blog instead?)

Anyway, I recently made a new instagram that is 70% about make-up. (@makeupdose) I feel like it's a lot easier to edit one photo & post up the information than edit tons of photos and write relevant text for a blog post. So many of the photos on there have never made it to my blog until now.

Lazy bun & 'Viva Glam I' by MAC on my lips.
