MAC "Jardin Aires" Pigment

I would describe “Jardin Aires” as a golden champagne with slightly peachy undertones. When applied wet the consistency is really smooth and silky, dry however it can be quite a mess as there is tons of fallout. I like to apply one layer with a damp brush and then add a second layer with a dry one in order to lock in the color. The sheen is absolutely beautiful as it is not too metallic nor too shimmery, perfect as everyday all over the lid shade.

Unfourtunately "Jardin Aires" is a limited edition color, but it has been repromoted in the past so keep an eye open if you are intrested as I am sure they will repromote it again in the future!

Do you like “Jardin Aires”?

Monthly Empties: May 2016

Essence Nail Polish Remover // would repurchse
One of the best nail polish removers out there. It removes polish thoroughly and does not dry up my nails or cuticles.

Rexona Maximum Protection Anti-Transpirant // would repurchase
Great Anti-Perspirant with an even better smell! I don’t really use it on an everyday basis but I like to have one of these at hand for whenever the occasion demands some „extra“ protection.

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water // would repurchase
I really loved it. I like to use it after my make-up remover to get any remaining residues down. You could also use it as a make-up remover, however be aware that it won’t break your mascara down. The value for money is amazing (mine lasted me at least 8 months). Already repurchased a second bottle and believe me, it won’t be my last.

John Frieda Daily Miracle Leave-In Conditioner // might repurchase
I used to buy this all the time. I really like that this also has a heat protector in it, saves me the trouble to apply another product on my hair. However at the moment I am unsure whether to repurchase another bottle.

Rexona „Shower Clean“ Deodorant // might repurchase
I loved the smell as it was super fresh, almost like fresh laundry. The only problem was the white cast it sometimes left behind.

L´Oreal Elvital Oil Magique Shampoo & Conditioner // would not repurchase
Mmmhh. Ok, so this wasn’t bad but honestly it wasn’t great either. I didn’t find it to do anything for my hair which is why I won’t be repurchasing it.

BUY or SKIP: Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer

The drugstore is full of concealers, some of them are really good and others unfortunately not so much. Today I want to introduce to you the “Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer”.

Shade: “010 Porcelain” (3 Shades available)

Price: ~ 3,45 Euros // ~ 5,99 Dollars

Content: 5ml

Available at: drugstores

Application: Doe foot applicator


If you are looking for a creamy, lightweight texture that applies and blends easily then BUY.If you want a medium coverage that covers redness and under eyes circles nicely then BUY.

If however you want a concealer that covers blemishes and tattoos SKIP. Instead go for the Catrice camouflage cream as that one has a higher coverage.If you are looking for a scent free product, SKIP. I didn´t mind the fruity scent at all but if you have sensitive skin then this product might not be for you.

If you want a concealer that doesn’t run into your fine lines, then BUY. I am very picky regarding this issue and so far (after 4 months of using it) have had no problems with it. Thumbs up!

If you want a concealer that doesn’t oxidize on your skin, then you should SKIP. Under the eyes, were I mainly use this concealer, I have not noticed the oxidation as much as on other areas of my face. As I only use it for under the eyes I dont mind it!



I hope this helps you on your decision on whether to BUY or SKIP the “Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer”.
