essence "#secret party" - Keep Calm And Party On (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hey guys!

While I'm a bit bummed that I missed the previous theme of olive, I am definitely back for this one: orange! Not necessarily a color I love on myself, but it's not too bad either. So here we go!

I'm pretty sure this is two coats, with top coat - might've been three. It's not eye-searingly bright or neon, but I quite like it.

What surprised me the most, though, is that the new Maybelline topper from the "All Access NY" collection called NY Lover works so well over it. I really liked that combo! And now I have to be one of those people and say that you can see that on my Instagram, and that it's just easier for me to post there than here. I don't wanna give up my blog, but posting here takes more time and effort. For me, as a natural born lazy arse, that makes things easy... or hard, really, because I don't wanna disappoint you guys who read this blog, which I'm very happy about. Okay, stopping now...

essence - hello sunshine (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hey guys!

Not super late for once I present to you my pick for this week's theme of "Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!" - yellow.

This is a matt, as you might have seen on the cap there. It needs about three coats to cover patches and unevenness. In the second photo you can see it with top coat, which also helps hide those issues usually. I don't know what to think about this on me... I guess I prefer neon yellow to this shade.

[CLOSED] Mystery Grab Bag Giveaway

Hey guys!

On January 28th this year, my blog turned three. I've been blogging more or less successfully for over three years now. Wow. Anyway, you might now be thinking back and realize that I didn't do any sort of special thingamajing back in January. Neither did I do anything of that sort in February, or March. Or even April. Well. I feel like I should apologize, but at the same time I feel like I should not. In any case, I felt like a slacker (and still do, to be quite frank) and so I put together four prizes for some of you to win. I wanted to do a bit more of a special thing, so I unearthed three makeup bags from my vault and stuffed them with different things... So this is a mystery grab bag sort of giveaway! Here they are - I hope you enjoy.

Mystery Bag 1

Mystery Bag 2

Mystery Bag 3
Since I don't want to make the contents of these a complete mystery, I'm gonna give you some general information:
Each of these bags contains a hand cream, a lip balm and a blush. In addition to that, each of them also holds a little bag with ten random nail polishes (bag 3 has two little bags because I didn't have a third small bag big enough for ten polishes). Since bag 1 and 3 are a little more bland compared to bag 2, I decided to put a small extra in each of them, to make up for the not-so exciting appearance.

So you may be wondering why I said "four prizes" above, but only have three bags... Well, that is because the fourth prize is a bit different - for those of you who don't like surprises I put together another little set:

No Mystery No Bag
The Body Shop Satsuma body butter
OPI nail polish "Frog In My Throat"
Barry M nail polish "Papaya"
Glitter Gal nail polish "She'll Be Right"
Manhattan nail polish "78C"
Catrice limited edition "Candy Shock" multi colour blush "Sugar Shock"
MoYou London stamping plate number 09 from the "Suki" collection

- Open internationally.
- You must be of legal age.
- Please be a reader of my blog - you can follow via GFC or Bloglovin' - Pinterest and Instagram do NOT count, unfortunately!
- Please leave a comment below, letting me know 1) which set you would like to win, 2) how you follow and 3) the name under which you follow - and anything else you'd like to say, obviously!
- Only one entry per person.
- Winners will be chosen at random.
- The giveaway ends May 9th at noon (Central European Time).
- I will announce the winners in a separate blog post, probably on May 9th in the evening (again, CET). They will have until May 15th to send me an e-mail with their address. I will not keep this for any other purpose than sending out the prizes!

If you have any questions at all, feel free to ask! Good luck!
