Review: Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick

When Marionaud opened their new store in Zurich HB, I received a lovely Begruessungsgeschenk on my first visit. Along with a Rodial lip mask, perfume and skin care samples. there was a sample of the Smashbox Always On liquid lipstick in the colour *Drivers Seat* and I fell in love with it. So much so, I had to go back to purchase one in red! View Post

Bubble mask testing

During my latest visit to Sephora at Manor in Zürich, I picked up a few masks, one of which being the *Earth Beauty Bubble Mask Sheet.

Feeling brave, I thought I would test the mask in an Instagram video, but being such a novice, I wasn’t aware the video could only be 60 seconds long – I’m certain that I’ve seen longer videos but I had no idea how to upload it. So, long story short, I downloaded the Windows Movie Maker program on my laptop and created a proper video. I must admit that I’m pretty chuffed with how it turned out, though I cringe at the sound of my  voice. Anyway, here goes… enjoy my first video product review! View Post

Brushes That Make Your Products Go Further? Oval Brush Review

The oval brush trend was originally kicked off by the brand Artis. These ergonomically designed oval brushes are  shaped for ease of use with densly packed fibres which are meant to easily smooth on makeup. Rather than spend a small fortune on the expensive original Artis brushes (costing around USD360!), I found this affordable d upeat House of Beauty Schweiz, from London Pride. The  Oval Brushes Multipurpose Set, which contains 10 brushes (4 large oval, 4 small oval and 2 round) for just CHF39.95. View Post

Beauty box review: Sophistiqué.

The SOPHISTIQUÉ beauty box launched recently offering five high-end quality cosmetic products in original or travel size.  The box that it comes in is lovely, with the products nestled between two silky pillows along with the info booklet and a welcome card.

Unlike Pink Box and similar monthly beauty boxes, this quarterly luxury box costs CHF75.00. Here’s what I thought of the contents: img_2156 View Post
