Beauty shopping: New in

Hey dolls! I always go window shopping if I have time to kill between castings and go&sees, and way too often I end up buying something instead of just looking. So I’ve bought a few new products the last couple of days that I wanted to show you.

Lavera Basis Sensitive 2 in 1 Cleansing Milk
I ran out of my beloved Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser last week and have been looking for something in the German drugstores that could replace it. My skin is quite sensitive at the moment so I need a gentle cleanser and I ended up with this cleansing milk from Lavera. I’ve used it a few times already and I really like it. For some reason the scent is bothering me a little, but nothing I can’t handle. A full review will of course come when I’ve used it longer.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance
I’ve been craving this primer for quite some time and after using it at a job last week I decided to finally go and buy one for me. This primer really does live up to its namesake and provide a natural looking radiance to the skin. I’m so happy to finally have it in my beauty collection, a review and swatch will come soon!

Caudalie Grape Water
I was at the pharmacie yesterday to buy Avene’s Thermal Water but ended up with the grape water from Caudalie instead. It is definitely different and a LOT more moisturizing. It’s really nice for setting makeup or to spray on whenever you feel in need of a bit of moisture.

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Heat Defeat Protective Spray
Modeling means getting your hair fried by different stylists who haven’t heard of protective sprays, so the other day I went to buy my own that I will bring to all my jobs from now on. I have only used it once so far but it definitely seem to do what it’s supposed to; protect and nourish my hair.

Do you use any of these products? What’s your latest beauty buys? :)

    je vous conseille la marque aveda pr les cheveux qui fait des miracles.Notamment la gamme color conserve (shampoing+conditionner),le style prep pure abondance ( donne du volume et du corps même aux cheveux les plus plats), smooth infusion ( traitement anti frizz) qui sont de purs merveilles sans silicones,sulfates que des produits naturels :) et les soins oribe alors que john frieda en contient.La marque LM je n’accroche pas et d’ailleurs les points de vente ferment les uns après les autres ) je préfère de loin chanel, dior,guerlain,ysl, lancôme, givenchy et clinique.
    Pr le teint j’utilise la nouvelle bb cream de Dior qui est parfaite et rend le teitn lumineux.
    Et en maquillage les marques citées ci-dessus nous réserve de sublimes collections été 2013 :) dsl pr la longueur du commentaire mais comme vous conseillez il est normal de faire la même chose pour solidarité féminine :)

      Thank you for your tips Amandine, I will definitely try Aveda’s hair products, I’ve heard great things about the brand! :) Laura Mercier is unfortunately very overpriced in Europe so I usually buy it online to save money. I love makeup from Chanel as well, I can’t wait for their summer collection! :)

        je suis comme vous j’attends avec impatience la collection d’été de chanel qui est sublime , ces couleurs azure,les stylo yeux :) sinon je vous conseille la nouvelle poudre de chanel les beiges qui est parfaite pour notre teint clair :) la campagne est avec la chicissime gisele bundchen,sinon vous avez la nouvelle collection ” avant première” qui sort en avril qui est une collection de rouge lèvres exquis avec vernis assortis :) et la collection “révélation” qui comprends des gloss et vernis associés. Enfin la cc cream de chanel est attendue avant que la collection été 2013 ne débarque sur les comptoirs en mai. Vous connaissez toutes les nouveautés Chanel à venir :) sinon celle de givenchy,dior,ysl et guerlain sont sublimes renseignez vous sur le net, ce sont des couleurs à tomber :)qu’en pensez vous?
