Let me show you what I bought today, a cute bracelet and feather earrings, both in a lovely turquoise color.
Tuesday, June 28, 2011
The first thing was MAC's mascara Plush Lash (17.50 €) in black and the Pressed Blot Powder (21.00 €) in medium. I read only good things about those two products and people were really exited about them so I thought I'd try them.
I really like the mascara's brush because it seems to be perfect to create long thick lashes. The formula is a deep rich black and not too wet nor too dry.
The powder's formula is silky smooth and applies evenly. The colour is a muted light beige and thankfully not yellowish.
Furthermore, my friend and I tried on some shoes and I ended up with this pair of beautiful high heels. They are grey and with those elastic bands they are really comfortable for such a height.
I hope you all had a nice Tuesday!
Today was really warm! 34°C/94°F. So I skipped foundation, just applied a bit concealer, setting powder and bronzer. For my eyes I only used eyeliners for a simple yet effective way to make my lashes stand out. My feet still hurt a teeny little bit from walking around in my new sneakers all day yesterday so I opted for flip-flops :) I kept my clothes simple, too. A standard black top and a light grey fluffy skirt with those little flowery things ^^
I focused on the colorful little slices or whatever, and I think I found three polishes which match them pretty well. But coloring all of my nails like that would have been too much, so I applied a muddy brown on the rest of the nails (all of the nails you can't see are brown as well) and used a shatter nailpolish to tone the crazy color down. On my left ringfinger I applied all three colors in stripes, while on the right hand each color got it's own nail :) Last but not least I covered everything with a shiny top coat.

Elements of my outfit: [from top left to bottom right]
I got this charm necklace by Fossil from Amazon about a year ago. I really like the little key, reminds me of Tiffany's, however it's a lot cheaper. So until I can afford the real deal, I like this alternative :)
I really like Mustang clothing, especially shoes and belts!
Today I'm wearing the colour 249 dangerous by P2 [better pic].
♣ Make Up
I'm wearing a pale pink top by Laura Scott. I really like the lacy edge and the subtle colour. I paired it with a black cardigan from the Denim Essentials line by Tchibo. I like this one because it has a lot of buttons and when closed the double edge becomes kind of flouncy :)
Today I decided to go with my trusted Chucks because I was anticipating bad weather, I have to walk quite a bit when going to my classes and they're so super comfy :) This model [photo] was from the Converse Red line a few years back.
I really really like Jeans by AJC by Arizona. For some reason they pretty much always fit me =) I just got this pair two weeks ago because I like the slightly destroyed look and its washed out colour.
We just love that song! When we went to go see Fast Five and it started to play we just looked at each other and went like 'awesome song' at the same time :D So when this was the first song we danced to last night, it was a perfect way to start a fun night out!

Today I was reading my daily "blog-list" and I stumbled about some interesting news. MAC's Sheen Supreme Lipsticks seem to be very popular and because of that MAC is planning to launch a limited edition with some new shades. I think the new shades are gorgeous and I really hope this limited edition will be available in Germany, too. I already have Full Speed from the original range and I love the colour as well as the amazing texture.
There will be 12 new shades at the price of 18,00 € here in Europe.

So today I finally did it: I made my very first pie!
I used a recipe I found online but only made half the amount and used raspberries instead of blueberries =) And oh-my-God it was soo delicious!! Raspberries are my favourite fruit and with the cinnamon they tasted so amazing! I'm so gonna try this again, soon! I love pie! :D
Here's my little pie [obviously I should have made a photo after trying the first piece^^], I'm so proud! Haha, well I think it turned out quite okay for a first try!

Um... yea. Is it just me or are these really weird? I mean, I'm all for trying new things but this is a bit too much for me.. Especially the pink/zebra 80's flashback leggins :)
How about you, would you wear pants like these??

I got both of them at SIX and they cost 5.95€/6.95€ - I think, didn't keep the receipt.
I hope you're more motivated than me to do your work :)

One tube of the Sunproof Stylo costs 7.50€.
From KIKO's website:
effect of volume. The bright colors highlight the tan.
I absolutely adore this lipstick! The colour is a perfect coral and it has a nice texture. I also love the fact that it has SPF 15, ideal for summertime!

This eyeshadow sells at 5.90€.
This type of eyeshadow always gives a bright and light result which is very easy to achieve.

I paid 9.90€ for this blending brush, which is a fair prize, considering MAC's 222 Tapered Brush costs 25.00€ and I think there's really not much of a difference between the two.
The precious quality of natural bristles - elastic and perfectly calibrated- united in the cone-shaped, compact hairs, allows you to blend the eyeshadow with precision, creating a perfect shadow along the eyelid fold.
Today we went to finally see X-Men First Class! Both of us have loved the previous films so we were really excited to see Charles' and Eric's past. It was fun, us being two of about 5 girls in the whole theatre, surrounded by .. well lets call them nerdy boys. That happens to us quite a lot actually, well .. we like action movies :)
In short, this film marks the beginning of the X-men saga by showing where both Xavier and Magneto come from. We watch them discover their powers and learn to control them. They meet, become allies, friends and in the end opponents. X-Men First Class features a lot of new muntants [Havok, Banshee, Azazel..] as well as ones we know from the original series [Beast, Mystique..]. The storyline intertwines with historical events of the Cold War and the Cuban Missile Crisis. Obviously it differs from the truth when mutants intervene but it's still nice to have those fictional characters embedded into a real story. They also did a great job using original footage of JFK in the movie, as you might have seen in the trailer.
We think that this is a really good film! We liked the original series but compared to the X-men Origins, especially this one now, it seems a bit sappy and superficial. In the Origins movies you get to know the characters better and understand why they do what they do. We both really like that in a movie.
X-Men First Class is a great mix of action sequences, fun scenes and emotional elements. It seems a bit cheesy to say so but this film is a lot deeper than the first ones. The effects, camera et cetera are obviously top of the line, all the actors are well chosen and the soundtrack/score is fantastic.
