Finally got them!

At the moment I'm traveling through America and on my way I try to find some stuff that is not available in Germany! Right now I can strike this of my list: Real Techniques Brushes! Yesterday I bought them in a store called Ulta here in Miami Beach! Yeah! :)
I'll write a review when I'm back home in two month! Happy traveling to everyone and greetings from Miami Beach! :)

sun protection for my hair with redken color extend sun

This summer I was in Italy for 3 weeks having some sunny days at the beach! I wanted some really good protection for my frizzy colored hair! Besides, I wanted my hair not to brighten up a lot because I love this golden warm color so much and it took me long to find something perfect for me and my difficult hair!
So I searched for some professional products at amazon and I chose the Redken color extend sun line!

The products:
-Redken color extend sun after-sun mask
-Redken color extend sun sparkling shield

after-sun mask:

- replenishing deep treatment for sun-exposed hair with mango oil, suitable for color-treated hair

- directions: After shampooing, apply to towel-dried hair. Leave on 5-15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. In case of contact with eyes, rinse them immediately.

- review: I have to say that I really love this mask! Not only that it smells good but also how soft and healthy my hair feels after using it! All in all, I would say that my hair is not that unruly, dry and frizzy after 3 weeks at the beach and in the salt walter! Being at home again I have some split ends but without this after-sun mask it would be even worse!

- conclusion: I can recommend it and I would definitly buy it again!

  sparkling shield:


- leave-in smoother for sun-exposed hair with mango oil

- directions: Shake well. Apply to damp or dry hair. Leave in. Reapply throughout the day or as needed.

- review: I was really excited about this product because I wanted some protection for the beach which also makes some beach waves looking shiny and luminous! Anyway, it should be waterproofed and there should also be a protection against UVA/UVB rays which is said on the official webpage of redken. I used it on my dry hair everyday and unfortunately I don't like the texture of it! It's so oily and difficult to spread on my hair. Thus, it is almost half-empty in just 3 weeks and the worst is that the packaging isn't leak so I had to use two plastic bags to transport it. I'm not sure, maybe there was good protection for my hair but it really didn't look very good! The only thing about it is the awesome scent which I could also smell after diving...so this could also be a proof for its water resistance! There is some golden glitter in it but I couldn't see any glitter at all after applying it!

- conclusion: I wouldn't buy it again if only for the price in comparison to the amount (125ml/4.2 fl.oz.). So it's not very productive! Nevertheless, it's not a bad product and after the usage as a leave-in conditioner my hair was soft and shiny!

my order arrived



Ich habe bei Douglas einen Mac Lippenstift Shy Girl und den Mac Powder Blush Margin bestellt und hab dazu 3 Proben erhalten: Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara, Prada Infusion d' Iris (Parfum) und eine Foundation von Clinique: Repairwear laser focus! Ich finde, dass es sich schon lohnt, bei Douglas zu bestellen und ich hab mich sehr über die Proben grefreut, die ich sogar vorher auswählen konnte!

I ordered a Mac Lipstick in Shy Girl and Mac Powder Blush in Margin at Douglas! I also got some samples: a Clinique foundation (Repairwear laser focus), Prada Infusion d'Iris (EdP) and Estée Lauder Mascara 
(Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Macara). I am very happy about these samples <3

MAC Shy Girl:

Generell bin ich mit dem Lippenstift sehr zufrieden und mag das Finish (Cremesheen), aber ich hatte mir die Farbe etwas heller vorgestellt (Im Sommer bestimmt perfekt^^)! Oft wird Shy Girl mit Hue verglichen! Ich finde allerdings, das Shy Girl wesentlich dunkler ist und einen Frost-Schimmer hat! Ich mag Hue eigentlich lieber an mir, aber er hängt immer nach einer Weile in meinen Lippenfältchen und setzt sich unschön ab! Das hab ich mit Shy Girl nicht, aber wirkt er auch nicht immer so Nude wie ich es gerne hätte! Ich finde aber eine Kombination aus beiden Farben schön: Shy Girl wird durch Hue heller und wirkt peachy-schimmernd! Das mag ich sehr! :) Ich werde bald ein Swatch vom Endergebnis auf meinen Lippen machen - Versprochen! :)

All in all, I really like my Shy Girl and especially the finish (Cremesheen) but I was hoping it would be much lighter on my lips (certainly, it will look perfect in summer with tanned skin^^)! Maybe I'm just too obsessed with Nudelips but I thought it would be like Hue, just peachy! It has a light frost shimmer and it's moisturizing which I like about it but I wish it would be more nude! I have some problems with Hue, because after a while it's in my wrinkles and it looks like I have chapped lips although I have not! I don't have such problems with Shy Girl so I just mix both colors! A combination of Shy Girl and Hue is perfect for me - it's peachy with a hint of light pink an shimmer and not that frosty like Shy Girl! I will do some swatches on my lips!!


MAC Powder Blush Margin:

Ich mag meinem ersten Blush von Mac sehr gerne und kann ihn definitiv weiterempfehlen! Die Farbe würde ich als rosanen Pfirsischton mit einem goldenen Schimmereffekt beschreiben. Ich finde, bei meiner gebräunten Haut gibt Margin einfach einen schönen Glow und ich verwende ihn in Kombination mit meinem innig geliebten Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronze Universel von CHANEL <3!! Vorher habe ich nur den Bronzer von Chanel benutzt, aber mit Margin entsteht einfach nochmal ein anderer Effekt und es wirkt nicht nur bronzy!

I really love my first blush by Mac and I can recommend it, I would describe it as a shade of peach and pink with a bronzy glow effect! I think it looks good on my tanned skin... particularly, in combination with my beloved Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronze Universel by CHANEL it looks gorgeous! Altogether it gives an awesome glow and defines my cheeks.
