Sunday craving : Tory Burch for Fitbit!

Hey my little fashionistas,

Are you working out as well? Well, I try my best and I believe that treating yourself with new fitness clothes helps a bit to find new motivation!

Guess what?

You can be fit and look fabulous at the same time!!!!!!

Cuz one of my favortite brands, Tory Burch, is partnering with Fitbit and created these genius and stunning looking new collection of Fitbits *.*


"Here’s a fashion riddle for you. What keeps tabs on your day-to-day activities (the number of steps you take, the calories you burn) and helps you sleep by tracking your snooze cycle? What wakes you up… with a silent alarm? And offers you personalized stats — plus connects you with a social circle of friends? Meet the Fitbit Flex — and the new Tory Burch for Fitbit collection, which does all this in the guise of a super-chic accessory, like the above gold fretwork bracelet. Get fit, in style."

It was about time for some more fashionable Fitbit bracelts and I'm really considering buying one of them :D

You can pre-order them on

Happy Sunday!

W7 In The Buff vs. UD NAKED 2

Hey guys,

I recently ordered some new makeup and discovered that there is a palette that looks just like one of the Urban Decay Naked palettes! It's from a brand called w7, heard already a lot about it but wasn't able to find it anywhere near or online until now. So I just couldn't resist to order and test it! So here is my review with swatches and thoughts ^^

Both are housed in a tin and hold 12 neutral shades.
While the Naked 2 has the dual ended Good Karma Shadow Brush, the w7 comes with a dual ended sponge tip and brush applicator.

The packaging of the Naked 2 palette looks so mucher better made than the In the Buff palette.The only advantage about the In The Buff palette is that it is less havier than the Naked 2 palette, slightly bigger thought but nothing less handy.


The biggest difference on the back is the fact that w7 displays its shade names there while Naked 2 displays them inside under the pans. 

Both palettes hold the same amount of product = 15,6 g. 12 x 1,3 g each eyeshadow!


While the Naked 2 has a mirror inside, the w7 hasn't any at all.

As you can see this is an obvious dupe of the Naked 2 palette!!!


 From Left-Right!
upper row = Buff, Camel, Sand, Dust, Chocolate, Topaz, Earth, Storm, Silk, Wave, Thunder, Onyx
lower row = Foxy, Half baked, Bootycall, Chopper, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, Verve, YDK, Busted, Blackout
I used a primer potion before swatching the shades on my left arm! However you can't see much of the first Naked 2 color (Foxy) since it's pretty much a very light skin tone color.

Swatched on my arm you can see that there is a difference when it comes to pigmentation. The colors are the same as the Naked 2 ones, nothing to deny but it can't keep up with the pigmentation!!!! However  it's pigmentation doesn't have to hide either. I would still give it a good note.

Pros & Cons

Pros: lighter packaging and definitely the cheaper price of it, 8,99 € instead of 47,90 €!

Cons: I dislike the fact that there is no information on where it is made (Made in China?), less pigmented than Naked 2; it contains silicones & parabens while Naked 2 is paraben free, vegan-friendly and cruelty-free; the dual-brush is too small as as a shadow brush for my taste.

Final Thoughts:

I would say this is quite a good palette for 8,99 € and a great present to give away to someone who is not that much into makeup. The holding of the shades on the eyes can stay up to 4-5 hours and if you don't mind up a touch-up this is really not a bad eyeshadow palette for you. I would say it's perfect for school girls that have started using makeup and don't want to or can't spend so much money.

Maybelline Fit Me Anti-shine Sticks!


Today's post is dedicated to the Maybelline Fit Me Anti-shine Sticks.

What you didn't know about these? OMG You are missing out on something!

Long story short:

What L'Oréal says about them:
Our first gel stick foundation with an anti-shine core
Fresh gel foundation blends to a natural matte finish
Lightweight powders in the anti-shine core instantly dissolve excess oil

Why You'll Love It

It’s one-step perfection.
The first of its kind – lightweight gel stick foundation with an anti-shine powder core:

  • Powder core instantly dissolves excess oil.
  • For flawless, shine-free skin and tailor-made natural matte coverage.
  • Easy to apply and great on-the go.
  • Available in 12 oil-free shades.

For Best Results

Apply to your face and blend evenly with your fingertips.

These are really amazing!!! I hated the Fit me foundation, bought a bottle and the foundation was not my skin tone at all and the formula was gross too. But these little sticks are quite awesome. Very handy, you can put them in your bag and carry them with you whenever you feel like you're makeup's gonna need a refreshing or what I like to do with them is that I use the lightest and darkest colors I owe (Vanilla and Moka) for contouring and highlighting (which you can see below) and the middle color 250 Beige Soleil I use when I go swimming and I know I'm going to the city, to the mall or I'm meeting up with friends, then I only use this stick because you can apply it easily on your whole face and then you use your fingers to blend it in. No foundation brush or powder afterwards needed. :) It's practical when it has to be done quickly!

BEFORE contouring/highlighting:

I already prepared my face using firstly a Nivea day cream (normal to mixed skin) then the Revlon Photo Ready foundation in 004 Nude, I also filled in my eyebrows with the MAC Satin Taupe eyeshadow. L'Oréal False Eyelash Extensions mascara in magnetic black on my lashes and the Maybelline Baby Lips balm in mint fresh.

I like to blend the darker color with my Real Techniques expert face brush and the highlight color with my Real Techniques stippling brush.


The Result!!! :) I think the finish is clearly a more flawless face. I added a bit of Benefit Coralista Blush on my cheeks and I powered it with Rimmel Stay Matte powder in 006 Warm Beige. My fache might look on all pictures a bit oily or shiny but actually it wasn't at all, this is probably only because of the flash light, my face was actually matte on each of them.

I carry one of these little sticks every where I go. So easy to apply to the whole face and great for touch ups on the move. Leaves me with a natural flawless finish. Love the gel formula of it = Perfection. Only con, these are pretty expensive, at least here in Luxembourg where I live, about 10-11€. I always try to buy them when I'm in Germany and go to DM, they are cheaper there, 6-7€.

Have a nice evening!
