Heey Girls ♡
Soooo.. one of my favorite sites to buy make up as well as hair & skin care from is Cocopanda. Cocopanda is the biggest Scandinavian online shop for brandname beauty products and now, not long ago, they finally opened an online shop also in Germany- Cocopanda.de!! They carry aaaaawesome brands, have great prices, a lot of choices, 100% genuine products – guaranteed, and now with the German shop, they deliver hassle-free in only 1-3 days!! It can’t get any better than this, or can it? Yes it can, because they also have FREE delivery no matter what!
And, psst, I have a little secret for you!
Cocopanda has a Black Week from the 21st until the 25th of November. That means everything is going to be on sale, up to 60% even the more expensive brands! So that one thing you were waiting to get from GHD, NYX, The Balm, Redken or BareMinerals - Go for it !
In the run of the Black Week, I will definitelty reorder my favorite products from Cocopanda and I wanted to recommend some for you to try!!
And you can find all of my personal favorites of the Cocopanda Onlineshop HERE!!
I’m sure you've all heard of the brand The Balm before, if not on Instagram then surely on Youtube. It’s such a fun brand with creative packaging and hilarious product names. My first purchase was of the Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter (Youtube made me buy it) and soon after the Nude’tude eyeshadow palette and Bahama Mama bronzer followed. They all have such great quality and they fit perfectly to my needs. The Nude’tude eyeshadow palette is probably my favorite, it has every color needed to make the perfect nude eye or smokey eye, the colors are very pigmented with no fallout. Just have a look at my video above and convince yourself!!
NYX Lingerie is my favorite low-budget liquid lipsticks, it almost feels like a mousse going on your lips and they aren't exactly drying but I need to exfoliate my lips every time I want to use them or else it might grab on dry areas. The best part is, they stay on for hoooooours, I even have trouble getting them off with a makeup wipe. The one I used in the video is called "Embellishment".
I will also stock up my makeup bag with brushes from RealTechniques and a brand new Beautyblender in black. RealTechniques brushes are one of my brushes I use nowadays, they're so soft and apply my makeup so smooth and easily. Yet the only thing I trust to apply liquid foundation flawlessly is my beautyblender. It would even work with my bareMinerals powder foundation if you want to use it for it, which is something I never expected.
Speaking of my bareMinerals powder, I hiiiiighly suggest you go and order one. It’s the most amazing thing! It doesn't feel like I’m wearing makeup at all, yet it gives me full coverage. I’ve also noticed that my skin has gotten clearer after using this for a while. You can use it with your moisturizer or just on it’s own and it wont look cakey or cling to any dry patches.
And finally: skin care. Dermalogica makes one of my favorite face washes, the ulratcalming cleanser, which helps with any redness I have and is great for my sensitive skin. It’s pH neutral and fortifies the skins natural barrier, making it extremely soft. I also love the NUXE long lasting deodorant because it doesn't smell overly strong, and holds through my toughest training sessions without leaving marks on my black or white t-shirts, without alcohol and parabens.
If you already have a favorite foundation but still have the problem with cakeyness, try the D2O Hydration spray from Jane Iredale. It’s similar to the Mac Fix+, yet its organic and 100% natural! It smells a bit like herbs, which is nice and really gives you the feeling of using something so natural.
