New Beauty Favourites


When one of your favourite perfume brands comes to your city, of course you have to welcome it. Byredo is now available in the Alsterhaus beauty department in Hamburg – and I was more than happy to smell my way through all the perfumes, scented candles, hand creams and Co.!

There was an engraving service for the opening event and I used the opportunity to stock up on one of my favourite scents, “La Tulipe”, and to have the bottle engraved with my initials (I also received a little cotton bag with my initials stitched on as a present – don’t you love personalised products?). “La Tulipe” is, as the name suggests, quite flowery with notes of tulip and freesia, but also rhubarb and woods. I am literally addicted to it!

When I came home, there was a surprise waiting: Byredo kindly sent me their new scent “Velvet Haze”. I had almost bought it two hours before, which shows that I can honestly recommend it. The notes are coconut water, patchouli, cocoa and musk. Very special and just very nice!



Talking about beauty favourites … I have recently discovered the best foundation I have ever tried (and I have tried quite a lot!). And I know it is a little useless to tell you about it know – because the foundation will actually not be available before February 2018 – but I am just so excited about it. It’s by NARS, it’s called “Natural radiant longwear foundation” and it will be available in 33 (!) different shades. I love it because it is very easy to apply, gives great coverage and it feels more like a moisturiser than make-up when you apply it. Give it a try when it’s out!

Another foundation I really like is by the organic brand HIRO. It’s a mineral foundation with SPF 30. I like to use this one when I feel like a very quick and easy 2 minute make-up. You just apply it with a kabuki brush and you’re ready to go. For touch-ups I like to use the translucent powder with SPF 20 by the organic brand ILIA. It’s a great product for travelling or to keep in your handbag.

Two more new favourites: NARS’ blush – I use “Deep Throat” and “Orgasm” – and Nude by Nature’s new “Flawless Concealer” (I use “Shell Beige”) – another great handbag-product.


I also need to recommend two skincare products that I’ve recently discovered. First, Muti’s “Anti-Age Serum” with hyaluronic acid and provitamin B5. I apply it in the morning and evening, followed by my moisturiser. Second, for my eyes I currently use SBT’s “Anti-Aging Eye Cream“, which is quite rich but also a good foundation for eye make-up.

I’ll be trying a lot of other new beauty products in the coming weeks, among them by Dr. Barbara Sturm, By Nacht and May Lindstrom. Stay tuned!
