  5. Oh. My. Word. Please tell me you're gonna review most of this stuff! Just quick snapshots and rapid reviews would be fine, as I know it would take up too much time other wise.

    I'm mostly interested in the Beauty is Life palettes and all those gorgeous nail polishes!

    1. nail polish photos are almost all shot, i will release them soon if you wish! for most skin-/hair care and gadgets i will only do short reviews but the blush palettes will take some time to prepare (since i need to do before/after pictures for each colour and i only do wear 1 shade a day ;) )

    1. you chose some of the best stuff ;) will surely do these reviews!

      Delete
    2. It's funny that you said that because I've bought so many products based on your reviews, so it's YOU that chose the best stuff. I'm only copying :)

      Also, what color did you get in the Shu Uemura eyebrow pencil? I think I can read that is says "grey" but the letters are too small to be sure. I'm debating on seal brown or stone gray, it's just so hard to decide without being able to see them in person.

      Delete
    3. i got the brow pencil in 05 stone grey as i figured it would be more ashy than the other shade and would suit my hair colour better. haven't seen the other colour in real, though!

  16. omg! :D

    would you please review the foundations? i am addicted to them and your reviews are great plus you have the same skintone and type *gg*

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i'm already in the process of swatching them, but such products take the most time to prepare since i only wear one colour a day and then i would need to do before- and after-photos of each, so it will take me at least 20 days of wearing make up = still about a month or so(?) to go for preparing the footage for the review.
      please be a bit patient for that.

      Delete
  36. Wow, I'd love to see a review of everything but in case that's not possible, review the foundations and the concealers, along with mascaras, those are my favourite make up products :D

  40. I am kind of new to your blog. I just discovered your blog couple of weeks ago when i need to find some NARS Blushes swatches. After reading your swatches and pictures of the how the color show up on your skin, i purchased 4 more NARS Blushes, i have 6 NARS blushes in total now. And I am thinking to pick up more blushes from other brands as well...I like your review and swatches since i have the smiliar skin tone like yours.

    1. Hi Megan!
      i only bought the Clé de Peau refills and found them (2 eyeshadow quads and 1 blush duo) to fit perfectly into my Artdeco Magnum Palette altogether. mind you my Artdeco palette version is a bit older and it's slightly smaller than the ones they sell today.

  52. Hallo!:-)

    Das nenne ich mal einen Haul und ich bin besonders interessiert an den japanischen Sachen.*____* Wirst du uns ein paar Bezugsquellen nennen, wenn du die Sachen (hoffentlich) reviewst? Ich weiß, man bekommt die Sachen teilweise bei ebay, Ichibankao, mihoko etc. Aber vielleicht weißt du ja mehr.

    Ich habe selbst vor kurzem koreanische Haarprodukte bestellt, weil sie mich so begeistert haben als ich in Seoul war. Asiatische Produkte scheinen meiner Meinung nach kaum faux pas in ihren Produkten zu haben.:-)

    Liebe Grüße,

    1. Hallo Jasmin!
      die meisten asiatischen sachen habe ich bei adambeauty gekauft, einiges aber auch bei ebay. an die haarsachen habe ich mich bis jetzt noch nicht herangetastet, klingt aber äußerst spannend da asiatische produkte für mein asiatisches haar sicher nicht so verkehrt wären ;)

    2. Hallo Keto!
      Ich hätte mich auch nicht herangewagt, wenn ich nicht in Seoul gelebt hätte. Aber für mein, nicht-asiatisches, Haar waren die Produkte bisher nicht von Nachteil.
      Von Adambeauty habe ich auch schon gehört, da war ich etwas skeptisch, weil der Laden ja, glaube ich, in Hongkong seinen Sitz hat. Aber wenn du da gute Erfahrungen gemacht hast, werde ich dort mal bestellen.:-)
      LG,

  57. Sekkisei Lotion is such a staple!
    I have two Lavshuca Moist Melting Bars, RD-4 (love love love) and PK-5, same as you, but the colour looks oddly brown on me. :(

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. have you tried the Sekkisei? how did you like it?
      on me, the PK-5 is not exactly pink either, it's rather a nude-ish shade with pink tinge. i really want to try some more Japanese lip products!

      Delete
    2. I've gone through a 100ml bottle and several samples, also tried the lotion and essence mask. I really, really love the smell! As for whitening, I can't say much (I'm already hardly discernable from the wall behind me xD), but I always felt like it brightened my skin a lot and made red marks fade if used long enough. Unfortunately, it is a little out of my budget, and at the moment, I am more focused on break-out control.

      All the swatches I've seen online looked a lot pinker! But then again, I should have known, the PK shades are never what I'd define as "pink". I usually go for RS or sometimes RD shades.
      Coffret d'or used to make extremely nice lipsticks back in the day. Not the ones they sell now, but very soft and buttery and shiny ones in their Glow ranges. I'm still moping over the loss of the glow ranges. But you can still get some on Adambeauty, so do try one if you haven't already (and can find a shade you like)!

  58. Where/how do you buy the Suqqu products at a reasonable price?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Selphia,
      i used to buy my Suqqu products on dollyleo.com, they had really great prices and sometimes discount codes so it ended up being quite reasonable. sadly, this onlineshop has closed it doors about 1-2 months ago so i'm also desperately looking for a place to buy Suqqu online at a reasonable price point again.
      i know it's also available on ichibankao.com, but i think they sell at japanese prices which are already more expensive and add quite a bit onto it.
      i guess you'll get the best deal at Selfridges in London at the Suqqu counter.

  59. Is "all of them" too much to ask? :)
    If I had to pick a couple, then those blush palettes looked amazing, also the YSL glossy stains,
    and the NARS tinted moisturizer! :D
