Do You Need A Beauty Blender Makeup Sponge?

Years back I remember seeing these cute pink sponges in Sephora aisles. So squishy, almost like a stress ball, like a toy perhaps. I later learned that it was the beauty blender makeup sponge. A new rage, all makeup gurus recommended. Somehow I did not purchase it for years, after all my finger and brushes do the job just fine.

Then I got curious and decided to purchase one. This was about two years back. And now I can share some thoughts on the beauty blender makeup sponge.

What Sephora Says

It is “A top-selling makeup sponge, the super-soft, …

Nail Polishes I Am Loving Right Now

I love nail polish. Nudes, reds, plums, blacks, shimmers, glitters, so many to choose from. These are a few nail polishes I am loving right now.

For today's post I have included nail polishes from Deborah Lippmann, Tenoverten, Essie and Olive & June.

Viseart Petite Pro 4 Apricotine Eyeshadow Palette

Viseart Petite Pro 4 Apricotine Eyeshadow Palette Review

Viseart Petite Pro 4 Apricotine Eyeshadow Palette reminds me of summer. It is still winter here and I am dreaming of spring and summer. Isn't it amusing how we associate certain colors with certain seasons. So I decided to take it out of my stash and decided to have some fun with it.

Viseart is a brand that is well-known by professional makeup artists. Viseart products have a lot a great reviews on websites. Although this is not the first Viseart product I tried, it is the first one I am reviewing on the blog.

Beauty Skincare Product Re-buys

What Beauty, Skincare Products are your Re-buys?

In Switzerland, it is illegal to own just one guinea pig. They are naturally very social animals so the rule is to have them in pairs. That's a fantastic rule and makes me thankful that we have two guinea pigs. During the pandemic our pets helped calm us , they are such good listeners and such adorable lap animals. The kids love to read to them and just spend time with them. They love this certain brand of pet food and will not eat pellets from another brand. So we buy them the pellets they love. Just like us humans …

REN skincare Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask

How Does The REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Mask Perform?

Facial mask is one of the easiest ways to get healthy and soft skin in a few minutes. A facial mask product is designed to be used for a short period of time, usually. It takes a few seconds to apply, wait for a few minutes and then wash it off. It is a simple process with enormous benefits. If you are not already using a facial mask, I strongly recommend that you add one to your regular skin care routine. REN Clean Skincare Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask was one of the masks in skincare routine.
