My favorite season

First of all, I need to complain about my internet connection as it has been the worst since Monday evening. It is great to pay so much $$$ for crappy services. (☆o◎)

Don't know if I mentioned this before but autumn/fall is actually my favorite time of the year. (☆▽☆) Probably because my birthday is almost around the corner as well. No, to be honest I don't want to get older and if there's a way I could skip this particular day, I would do that. lol (*/////∇/////*)

Okay the real reason why I especially love fall is that I finally get to wear my beloved coats!! I've been waiting to wear my coats (yes, I have sooo many different ones!!) with a pair of nice boots but I'm definitely not talking about digging out my rain boots. lol In my opinion there's nothing worse than a cold and rainy day so as long as it's sunny I'm super happy. At the moment I'm really into layering so I try to stock up with nice basics. I also bought my first snood scarf and so far I'm loving it. I bought another one later on as well but I still need to figure out the correct wrapping technique because it looks quite weird when I tried it on. It's more like a loop Pashmina. However, I love the pattern so much. (´・ω・|||)

Beautiful sunset

My highlight from last week.

Just wanted to share this wonderful sunset. Okay I was lazy so I basically just went to the balcony to take this snapshot instead of going outside.(*´∀`*)Well, it was the right time but sadly at the wrong place.

I'm lucky

Do you know this feeling when you find a product that works great for you and you're terribly in love with it only to find out later that it's not available any longer?! Seriously, lately I've been just so sick of it! Everytime that I find something that works great for me it is either getting discontinued or from a limited edition!! It is crazy! o(*>д<)o

Is it really so hard to find a good and most importantly permanent product?

Why I'm super frustrated? I'm talking about this eye care product from Weleda. sigh. o(TヘT o)

It's called Wildrosen-Intensiv-Augencreme. What surprises me the most that it's still available on their website but it can't be found in the shops any longer. I even sent an e-mail to the company but they basically just referred me to another eye cream from the same range (Wildrose). I wonder why they discontinued this product. I'm not very pleased but let's see how the new eye cream will work for me. I still need to buy it, though. hahahaha!! (*/////∇/////*)

Taking over the world

Well, not literally but I'm just surprised that Essence is also available in the US!!! I was like *&*#$^&*#^&)!! Crazy!!(●^д^●)I don't know why I'm so happy about it, though. Perhaps it's something that I've never expected in the first place. haha.

Anyway, Essence is a German drugstore brand and supposedly targeted at a younger audience. You could easily tell by the logo, design and color scheme, it's made to be very pink and cute. Plus their products are really affordable. However, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's also cheap in quality. This brand actually does have a few great items which I'm personally very fond of. ヽ(^◇^*)/

Alverde Powder Blush Flamingo

Today I want to talk about the powder blushes from Alverde. I picked up the shade #07 called Flamingo which is a nice coral pink color.

I rarely would buy such a vivid and bold colored blush since I'm a still a blush noob but I totally fell in love with this color! The finish is actually more on the matte side even though it looks shimmery in the pan. Surprisingly this is neither from a limited edition nor getting discontinued, which is quite rare. In the future I actually want to focus more on the items from their regular line!! ヾ( ~▽~)ツ

What the heck?!

Gaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!! ━━━[○・`Д´・○]━━━

I seriously don't know what to say because everything is just so totally wrong!! o( ̄‐ ̄*) 

I have been dropping things on such a regular basis that it makes me super upset and annoyed! Not to mention the financial aspect but it's just getting on my nerves that I have been so clumsy these days! Ouch!!! (*≧□≦*)

Let me list the products that I've dropped on the floor these past months:
Needles to say that my heart still aches a lot everytime I think about it. (┳Д┳)

I'm different from the rest

Don't take it the wrong way, I don't mean it in a conceited and arrogant way. (●・ω・●)ノ It's just sometimes I find myself doing the weirdest things.... making me think that I'm a bit different from the rest. I guess my mom must have dropped me numerous times when I was a baby so I hit my head really hard. lol No, I don't blame anyone because I was born that way. kekekekeeeee~ ヾ( ~▽~)ツ

Interesting view

Question of the day: What is this?

Eyeliner brush x9

Perhaps I'm slightly overdoing it but I deeply love my eyeliner brush so it's quite obvious that I have more than one brush. (=∇=)

Besides, I'm super lazy when it comes to cleaning my brushes so it's always better to own at least 4-5 brushes, each for one day so I wouldn't run out of brushes during the week. (///ω///)

When I learned that this brush is getting discontinued I immediately rushed to the next DM to get myself one or two more as back-up. I paid the fullprice back then, however, a few weeks later I spotted these for 0,95 EUR only!! That's when I decided to buy uhm.... even more back-ups. (*≧∀≦*)

Without a doubt I could've purchased a more expensive and perhaps a better quality eyeliner brush, like from MAC, instead of buying tons of inexpensive ones but it's not always about the price tag. (・∀・*)

This is my precious eyeliner brush collection. (^0^)

Crazy week and Vogue Fashion's Night Out

Last week was full of ups and downs. ヽ(≧Д≦)ノ

Consequently I had to do some retail therapy in order to relieve stress. I know I said I won't do that anymore but I just had to make up for all the bad things that happened last week. (-`Д´-ノ;) The only good thing is that I didn't get sick which I feared the most.

I ended up purchasing some items that I normally wouldn't do but it's not that I regret my buys either. lol However, my blush collection is surely growing. (^◇^;)It's just... more and more I find myself turning into a blush junkie....

Alverde Baked Blush Raspberry

I almost forgot that I took photos of my baked blush a couple of weeks ago. It was all before I learned from the bad news that these are getting discontinued. Actually I find it pretty pointless to write about discontinued items so frequently and I seriously was pondering whether to post this or not. ヽ(ー_ー )ノHowever, I'm super sure that Alverde will bring out new shades and perhaps in a bigger case as well? I mean it would be a serious loss if they don't. (♯▼皿▼)

I bought 'Raspberry' and it is a very nice hot pink shade with pearly shimmer. I've included a few swatches so you can see how well the baked blushes are pigmented. I tell you just one sweep with your brush is more than enough!!

Thermal Water Sprays

Do you believe in the benefits of thermal water sprays or do you think it's just water?

I've tested three different brands but only two of them are actually labeled as thermal water. So what do I expect from a thermal water spray? I shamelessly copied the following part from the Avène website because I liked the text better than from Vichy.

    The unique properties in the water assist in its ability to cleanse, soothe and calm mild to highly sensitive skin. With both health and beauty benefits this product can be used to tone the face as well as offer relief to inflamed skin.

Favorite eyeliner brush

I'm very particular about eyeliner brushes. My ideal brush needs to be angled and most importantly bent like shown above. I tried using flat angled brushes before but I wasn't happy with the results. (´-ω-`)

I was super happy when Alverde released a gel eyeliner brush so I bought it right away and it has been my favorite brush ever since then. It was during that time that I refined my eyeliner-drawing-technique. (*⌒∇⌒)

Die sieben Beauty Todsünden

I got tagged by Liv and thought I might give this a try because it sounds interesting. It's about the Seven Deadly Sins with a focus on beauty. Feel free to use the translator that's embedded on the right sidebar if you're interested to read my take. lol (*^▽^*)

Geiz - Was ist dein billigstes Beautyprodukt?
Wahrscheinlich die Alverde Kajalstifte. Ach nein, es sind die Essence colour&go Nagellacke!! Kostenpunkt 1,25 EUR pro Flasche. Die Farbauswahl ist einfach (♥∀♥)!!

Zorn - Welches Beautyprodukt hat dich die meisten Nerven gekostet?
Spontan fallen mir zwei Produkte ein: Beide von Dr. Hauschka. Das Gesichtsöl und die Revitalmaske. Habe nur Gutes(!!) von diesen zwei Produkten gehört, aber bei mir funktionieren die nicht. Im Gegenteil, ich beobachte eher eine Verschlimmerung.... (┳Д┳)

Völlerei - Welches ist dein leckerstes Beautyprodukt?
In dieser Hinsicht bin ich etwas eigen, Erdbeer Soufflé Geruch ist nicht wirklich meins. Aber den leichten Karamell Duft vom Alverde Gloss+Peeling finde ich nicht sonderlich schlimm. (≧∇≦) Generell darf der Duft nicht zu süß riechen, aber zitronig frisch schon... Versteht mich einer überhaupt? 

Faulheit - Welches Beautyprodukt vernachlässigst du aus Faulheit?
Ganz klar, Masken jeglicher Art! Gesichtsmasken gehen gerade so noch, aber Haarkuren... oh je... da packt mich mein schlechtes Gewissen... ( ≧ヘ≦)

Hochmut - Welches Beautyprodukt verleiht dir die meiste Selbstsicherheit?
Mascara (aber bitte waterproof Variante!) in Kombination mit einer guten Wimpernzange. Sonst sieht man meine short, sparse and stubborn Asian eye lashes nicht!! (×ω×)

Wollust - Was findest du beim anderen Geschlecht in kosmetischer Hinsicht anziehend?
Gepflegte Hände sind das A und O. Übrigens die Handcreme ist zur Benutzung freigegeben. (*・∀-)

Neid - Welches Beautyprodukt würdest du dir gerne mal schenken lassen?
Hat jetzt nichts mit Naturkosmetik zu tun, aber das SK-II Facial Treatment Essence lacht mich an. Es ist so unverschämt und verboten teuer dass ich es mir wahrscheinlich niemals selber kaufen wuerde. Wie ehrlich von mir. haha.(*x_x)
