The Lancôme Juicy Shaker // Love – Beauty

Hi everyone!

Last Sunday, as a sort of pre Christmas gift, I was given my first ever Lancôme Juicy Shaker! I was bursting with excitement! Aaahh! 😀

I had been dying to get my hands on one for ages (or to be more precise: since October 26th 2016, when I saw an Estée Lalonde video in which the gorgeous thing was featured) and so Sunday was my lucky day. I actually feel far too excited than I think I should feel, but it’s so damn cool! 😀

It comes in a silver box, and the bottle has the exact shape of a cocktail shaker (actually resembles my grandmother’s real juice shaker pretty well!) and it comes with a really soothing applicator.

I got the one in shade no. 166 ‘Walk the Lime’. It is an oily formula, yet not greasy and does not feel sticky at all. It blends in with the natural colour of your lips, which results in it not ‘covering’ them. So, you could say that it’s not a super pigmented formula. I think – but cannot say for sure – that if you are in search of a more covering formula, you should opt for the Matte Shaker. Nevertheless, the colour of my Juicy Shaker lets my lips be my lips, only a little bit better! I also think that the shade would suit anyone, regardless of your skin tone or hair colour.

This photo was taken in the evening, excuse the bad lighting! But you can still have a pretty good impression of how it looks. In day time, the colour shows more red.

 

So, for those in search of a really nice, hinting tint of colour which blends in with lips and skin tone, and something with a luxurious touch, this is the thing you’re looking for!

Big kiss and Merry Christmas everyone!

Hi everyone

There is this product I really like and thus want to tell you about. It’s the Tiny Rituals hair & body wash by Rituals Cosmetics.

You might think; a baby wash? Well yes, a baby wash. I have a complex skin and my face really needs a pH-friendly wash. Plus, this product is super gentle and natural, enriched with almond oil and rice milk. I have really stocked up on it and wouldn’t trade it for anything else. It smells delicious, the texture is I think great (and fun to use) and for me, to be short, it has been a staple considering mourning routine. Plus, as it is so gentle, I wash my make up brushes with it! So there you have a two-in-one! How awesome is that! And that it’s fairly cheap AND is donating a part of the profits to a project ‘Tiny Miracles’ based in India, surely are things to cheer on! 😀

As it comes to body products and make up, Rituals is my go-to. They’re not always cheap but never really expensive. For make up, I use a good few of products, ( I’m curious to try this peach glow palette, a blush/highlighter/eyeshadow combined, but more on that in another post). But their make up (“the Ritual of Cleopatra”) is not their biggest focus; they also have lines in botanical skin care, interior scents (like fragrance candles & sticks) and have great body products with a marvelous scent too, all according to a certain ritual; hammam, ayurveda, sakura… These are all based on Eastern traditions, practices and principles. The Sakura for example is based on the Japanese celebration of the Sakura tree (it’s the season this time of year! 😀 ) which represents the fragility and volatility of life.

Celebrate each day as a new beginning. – The Ritual of Sakura

My two favourites concerning the rituals are Ayurveda & Sakura, but that’s a story for another time. 🙂

Love,
