I'm a girl who loves beauty products, even though I haven't always been very keen on them, so I decided to start a beauty blog, where I share beauty product reviews with others and tell you about both the worst and best beauty products out there, according to me.

I'm also hoping it will make beauty and makeup more fun, even for those who are not beauty addicts already.

First impressions of the Clinique Facial Soap

Like I mentioned in my previous post, I recently got the Clinique Facial Soap. I think you need to use these products for a while before you can form a really good impression of them, but after using it for a couple of days at least, I already have a first impression of the product.

I have to say the smell of the soap is a bit too clinical for my taste, it reminds me of things used in a hospital. Since I haven't tried many other Clinique beauty products, I don't know if this is something that is common when it comes to their products, but at least this soap has a very clinical smell.

On a positive note, however, I would have to say that you only need to use very little of the soap to clean your whole face, so I think this is a product that will last for a long time.

So far, I haven't had any amazing results, but like I mentioned in my previous post, I didn't get the whole skin care routine, so it could be that I am missing out because of that, hard to say.

Impulse buy from the pharmacy: Clinique Liquid Facial Soap

I went to the pharmacy today, not really to get beauty products, but my local pharmacy happens to have a really good assortment of beauty products as well, so of course I had to take a look at some of their special deals.
And one of the deals they had this time was actually for a product I have been wanting to try for a while now: The Clinique Liquid Facial Soap. My friend has this soap, and swears by it, so I have heard many good things about it.
I have tried Clinique make up before (I love their lip products in particular!) but I am not very familiar with their skin care line, so I am really looking forward to seeing what this soap is like. I know that you are supposed to get the whole skin care line at once, but the pharmacy did not have the moisturizer, so I am starting out with the soap first. (I have other tones and moisturizers that I can combine it with anyway)

Review: Moschino Toujours Glamour

So like I mentioned in a previous post, I got a new Moschino perfume a while ago: Moschino Toujours Glamour, a scent that was first released in June 2010.
This is a pic from the ad campaign when the scent was first released, from Now Smell This.

I have been using this scent a lot since I got it, it somehow smells really clean, and reminds me of laundry detergent for some reason (which I love! Laundry detergent is a great smell for me, since I love fresh laundry!), which is kind of strange, since the notes in it are:
Red berries
Bitter almond
Lily of the valley
and violet leaves.
So I definitely like this scent, like most Moschino perfumes a lot, and I do think it is a great scent to wear every day. It's not an occasion scent, if you know what I mean.
Definitely worth getting for Moschino fans!

Are you looking for cruelty free makeup?

If so, find a great list of brands that do not test their products on animals here.

My latest beauty buys

I just ordered some beauty products from the ASOS summer sale (highly recommended, by the way, and not just for beauty products, they sell accessories, shoes and clothing as well):
Some eye cream from Anatomicals, because you can never have or use too much eye cream. And besides, I love Anatomicals, all their packages are so much fun!

Which is why I also got a facial wash from the same brand:
And since I have always been curious about Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream, I decided to get a jar of that as well, in this limited edition packaging:

I'm really looking forward to trying the Eight Hour Cream out, I know so many people who swear by it and tell me it's amazing. So it will be interesting to see if they are right!

My new perfume

I got a new perfume today: Moschino Toujours Glamour.
I haven't tried this perfume before, but I am a huge fan of Moschino scents in general, they are actually my favorites by far. So when I saw this cute bottle (cute packaging is another thing Moschino does wonderfully, by the way), I knew I had to get it. You can never go wrong with Moschino, you know!

(I did try the tester before buying it, of course, don't worry. But I haven't worn the scent a whole day yet, so a full review will be coming up later!)

Nice look of the day

Has to be Serena Williams new duo of nail polish for OPI, featuring the grape colored Grape... Set... Match as well as the sparkly polish Servin' up Sparkle.
Personally, I am not a huge fan or purple nails, but these combined actually look really nice, especially if you only use the sparkle at the end of the nails, like in the picture. And purple is great for winter, so I would probably recommend getting these, but saving them for a few months. Pull them out for autumn and winter parties, they seem perfect for that!

Review: Dior Addict lipstick ColorPlay

I was recently given my first Dior lipstick as a present, and I have to say, Dior makes the best lipsticks! The lipstick is really easy to apply and lasts for a very long time, which is great, since I was given a very natural color (377 from the ColorPlay collection), which really looks good and not too made up all day long.
The color is really subtle and slightly pink, so if you have been looking for the perfect every day lipstick that suits everyone, this just might be the lipstick for you!

I've heard that people who want stronger colors for their lips are slightly dissapointed by this lipstick, however, so I would say that this lipstick is better for those of us who prefer natural looking makeup.
I liked this lipstick so much, I am thinking of getting some more Dior products from the same line to try out.

My beauty wish list right now

NARS lip gloss Orgasm. I know so many people who swear by this product, so I've been wanting to try it for years. Literally!
NARS Pore Refining Primer. Sounds like a great product based on the description, so this intrigues me a lot as well.

Any product from Soap and Glory. I haven't tried this brand yet, but it seems to have a lot of really interesting products. And I absolutely love the packaging!

(all pics are from ASOS, where you can buy the products as well)

The beauty look of the day

Has to be these supercool orange nails, seen on Swedish fashion blogger Sofi Fahrman's blog.
I'm really quite in to orange nail polish and yellow nail polish at the moment, it feels like something new and fun, but I am yet to try it out on my own nails.
