FOTD november 2016

In this photo I wear the Inika lipliner in “sugar plum” and lipstick in “orchid fields”, and a dab eyeshadow “copper crush” in the middle of the lower lip. I also wear the eyeshadow as an eyeliner.
Blush is Inika’s pot blush in “pink pinch” on mineralfoundation in “patience”. Both are very subtle on my skin and leave the focus on my lips.

The mascara is Marie W. in “rabenschwarz” (thanks to @herbsandflowers, it is an ongoing pleasure using this!), and I used the Dr. Hauschka pink eyeshadow on the complete lid to even out the skin tone before applying the liner.

The eyeshadow and mineralfoundation are PR-samples from @knospa, the rest is my own stuff which I won or paid for myself.

Schmidt’s Deodorant | Unboxing Ecco Verde

Usually I make my deodorant myself. That is easy, you basically mix bakingsoda with shea butter and add some drops essential oil. But sometimes I don’t want to use my DIY stuff – this is when I begin to surf blogs and onlineshops after THE ONE product I want to try instead. In the past few weeks this has been deodorant, as I used my DIY version almost a year now. The result is an order I placed at Ecco Verde. I am always curious to see how online shops pack their things, therefore I will show you some unboxing pictures.

My order came in a cardbox with biodegradable packing material (the stuff that glues together when moist), everything was in fine order.

I ordered some mineral makeup samples, they were placed in a small plastic bag to avoid spilling and falling around in the box.

The deodorant itself was rolled up in bubble wrap and the eyelash curler in a separate plastic bag.

The Avril Eyelash Curler (£1.19 | €1,49 | $2) seems quite good for the price. The silikon pad is rounded and super soft, and there is a spring that helps getting a better feeling for the pressure. An extra silikon pad is delivered with the curler, it is placed at one of the handles.

I ordered sample sizes of some mineral makeup. Inika offers a vegan, cruelty free foundation based on aloe vera juice and organic oils, I tried shade honey (Inika Organic Liquid Mineral Foundation Mini Size, Honey, 6ml: £2.49 | €2,99 | $4). Lily Lolo sells powdered Mineral Foundation (LSF 15 Mini-Size, 0,75g: £3.29 | € 3,99 | $5,50) in cute little srew-top jars, I ordered Butterscotch and Saffron. They are also vegan, cruelty free and without nasty ingredients. Also I decided to get samples of Everyday Minerals which I have never used before, just like the Lily Lolo and Inika mineral makeup: Everyday Minerals Cheeks Blush Sample Peony Petal (0,14g: £1.10 | €1,49 | $1,80) and Everyday Minerals Foundation Matte Base Sample Size 5W Golden Tan (0,14g: £1.10 | €1,49 | $1,80).

The best part is the Schmidt’s Bergamot + Lime Deodorant (56,7g: £8.99 | €10,99 | $14,70) which I am soo curious to try! The ingredients read fantastic simple: shea butter, baking soda, arrowroot powder, cocoa seed butter, bergamot essential oil, lime essential oil, vitamin E, hop extract. It is certified vegan & cruelty-free.
