L'oreal Color Riche Intense

Everybody knows the popular "Pin Up Look" - simple clean eyes with bright red lips.
But do you have the same difficulties choosing a red that matches your skin color? Here comes L'oreal Paris with their new Color Riche Intense Lipstick Line matching each hair color. I got the color Burning Rose with a shimmery finish which was actually assigned for dark blondes... hehe whatever. In the drugstores, the lipstick ranges from 10-12€ (which is pretty expensive for a drugstore brand) I also got the matching nail polish "Resist & Shine - Titanium" in the color... it doesn't say, but it looks like the lipstick without the shimmer. However, let's get to the review...

So, this is how it looks once applied. It doesn't look too crazy with the shimmer, but after I removed the lipstick, I still had some residues of shimmer/glitter. I don't know if I can call it actual glitter...
The color pay-off is pretty good, this picture was taken with two coats of lipstick. The red is not to "orange" but also not to "berrish". It's a good balanced red ( If you know what I mean :-P) Well, the picture speaks for itself I would say :-)

All in all, I think it's a decent lipstick. If you like shimmery/sparkly reds, that is not too glossy and shiny, but has a pretty good color pay-off, probably this one is for you. Since I only wore it for a short time, I can not say anything about the lasting power, but for the short time I wore it, it didn't feel too drying but also not very moisturizing. For the price, I wouldn't repurchase this lipstick, since it's nothing "spectacular", in my opinion. You can get the same results with any other brand, but save your money at the same time.

I hope this review was helpful for you! If you have any other (red) lipsticks suggestions, pls comment and let me know. I heard good things about Revlon Matte Red lipsticks and Maybelline Sensational ones. I want to try them out, but for me as a student, I unfortunately can not buy everything I want ... 

Anyway guys, thank you so much for reading!
Until next time, keep smiling :-)

Hair coloration

Hey guys! I decided to dye my hair again, this time a little darker. It took me a very long time to choose a color... Seriously you can not imagine how many times I walked in drugstores, starred at the color variation and went out again. Even my friends got annoyed by me ... It was always the same thing, whether that color was to golden/red/dark/cool/warm etc or just not my taste. Finally though, I chose
Honeybrown 54 by Poly Palette - permanent natural colors 
Brown Richness
While I dyed my hair, my mum thought it would turn out black. She scared the hell out of me... but fortunately, everything went fine. So if you try it out too, don't be scared that your hair look very dark at first.
As you can see, the color turned out more red, which I really like!!! <3 
If you're wondering why it looks more golden blonde at some spots, it's because of my bad bathroom lighting... that's why the pictures don't show the "real" color unfortunately...

As you can see, my hair looked way more blonde-redish before and really bright compared to now. I love the result, since I wanted to have a "real brown" color, not too blonde but not too red. I'm glad that I picked this color. Since I dyed my hair in the evening, I couldn't take a picture in natural lighting, but I will do it soon!

All in all, this product kept his promises. You'll get what you see on the picture. The coloration mix isn't itchy or "burning" at all. In fact, it feels very comfortable. I'm really content with this product and I would definitely repurchase it again, if I'm looking for a good natural looking brown!

I hope this short "review" was helpful and fun to read (cough cough) 
Until next time, take care everyone!

Shopping Tour

As promised here are some pictures of my shopping tour :-)
My mum and my little sister joined me and later my brother and his gf too.
My mum wanted me to get the cardigan in the second picture, because it looks so elegant...what do you think?
I tried on this creme asymmetric top and I loved it! I ended up buying it. I got another creme dress/long shirt but I didn't take a picture of it.
Obviously, we needed a break of our exhausting shopping tour :-P
Weirdos on the streets
...Oh btw did you see that girl's waist? It's crazy tiny!!!

Okay, that's it for today. I hope you guys enjoyed!
