E.l.f 24K shimmer eyeliner set

Hello Fabs! I have been absent for some days due to sniffles. I'm still a bit under the weather but I thought I better update and share a lucky bid on eBay!
E.l.f recently had a limited collection named 24K, exclusive for the US. I really wanted it but I don't know if I should trust those "My US Address" re-shipping firms... But as in everything, eBay came to my rescue!

E.l.f 6 Piece Shimmer Eyeliner Collection
Six gorgeous eyeliners with loads of shimmer! 
The cap is plastic with a sharpener build in and gold tip. I like the 24K logo on the pencils

Very nice colors (purple, bronze, white, green, silver, black). They are VERY creamy and soft, so be careful when using. These will benefit from being stored in the cooler and put in the freezer for one hour before sharpening them.

Very pigmented, every single one of these is only one swipe, even the white!
I paid 8.51$ plus shipping and I bought from THIS amazing seller

Fun fact of the Day: The average woman consumes 2,7kg lipstick in her lifetime

Milk_Shake Whipped Cream Leave in Conditioner

Yawser! I just HAD to share my delight about this product! I got it in my August Goodiebox and it have not disappointed me one tiny bit! Super easy to use, just like mousse or if you will whipped cream ;) A big hand full is enough - and dont eat it even tough its tempting lol, massage it into your clean damp hair and voila: Happy soft shiny hair! With a delightful scent of caramel! Best part is that your hands don't get sticky or greased when you use it. You can buy one HERE

Fun fact of the Day: Max Factor was the first to sell concealer? It was called Erace and was launched in 1954

Wednesday Wishing Well

Every Wednesday ill blog about something I wish for. Something I cant buy right away or maybe ever, things that may be to expensive or to hard to get my hands on. And now presenting this weeks wish!   

E.l.f  Studio Baked Eye shadow Palette
I want these two so bad! Alas, they are from the American site and I must wait till they MAYBE get it at the UK site *sigh*. The one of the top is the NYC palette, a perfect match for smokey eyes with just a dash of cute. The one on the bottom is the California palette in gorgeous nude, brown and golden colors - perfect for the fall! I also like the mirror in the lid a lot.
Retail is 10$ at E.l.f

Fun fact of the Day: If you brush your hair from the tips and up you ll get less broken hairs and have an easier time brushing

Sign up for Decubal+ and get free samples!

Decubal is an awesome brand, and their new eco line is just my kind of thing.I love perfume and paraben free products, and Decubal got the experience to make excellent products. I spoke about some Decubal products I got in my July Goodiebox and due to that Decubal had a questionnaire to the members, one of which mentioned their club.

Decubal Plus is a costumers club where you can get up to date with Decubal events, advice about which products to use and best of all: Free samples! I got 3 possible choices (face, body, eco) and they emailed me a coupon I could bring to the pharmacy and receive a free sample pack. As I understand you can order another kind when you given feedback.

Often they also have contests or seek users to test new products, and you can collect points from purchasing Decubal products to use in their point shop! Sign up HERE

August Goodiebox

Goodiebox is the Danish equivalent of Glossybox and Birchbox.

It seems they had some troubles with delivery as I didn't receive my box till Tuesday. I am still not going to recommend signing up for this just yet, as I am less than pleased with the way they treat other costumers. I haven't had any issue myself, but I'm aware of several very unprofessional responses via their Facebook.

Regardless, they seem to try and straighten things out, so I'm holding on a bit more. On a related note, I signed up for MyBeautyBox which is a cosmetic focused box! They already made promise of Urban Decay in the first box! I will of course review them when I get the box (shipped October 15th).
And now to this months - or rather last months ;) - Beauty box!

Pink band again - I do love pink <3

This weeks box is dedicated to Vidal Sassoon, the man who in 1960 invented "The Wedge Bob" and changed the way we saw woman's hair forever! He´s the grandfather of the modern short styles with his vision of hair that was easy to style and keep. Most of the products this month is all about the hair!

Loreal Texture Experts Smooth Ultime
I'm not exactly sure what this is... Goodiebox calls it a "Hair Tamer" but I haven't got a clue what that means. Contains Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate and Methylparaben both EDC´s so I doubt ill be using it.
Full size retail is 192Dkr

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Shampoo, Conditioner and Serum
John Frieda is the stars go-to hair expert, and rumor has it that his products are amazing. Upon inspection tough it turned up that they have several EDC´s in them including Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate Probylparaben and  Methylparaben  but ther´es some good stuff to like Glycerin, olive oil and mineral oil. 
Full size retail is 89Dkr

Davines Absolute Beautyfying Potion
The product I'm most exited about this time!! It is a hair oil, and im looking very much forward to use it! Sadly, again parabens :( Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, which is an UV filter. 
Full size retail is 300Dkr

Milk_Shake Whipped Cream, Leave in Conditioner
I love quirky stuff and this whipped cream conditioner tickles my funny bone :D It smells like caramel whipped cream, UMM I say! I couldn't spot any parabens on the label yay! It contains sunflower seed oil and milk protein! And we all know that Cleopatra bathed in milk to keep her beauty 
Full size retail is 159Dkr

Futura Silica
A diet supplement to hair and nails. I'm pretty iffy about this one. I know that many people are unaware of the consequences it can have to mix drugstore pills with medicine, and I cant really see the purpose of a diet supplement in a beauty box...
Retail is 79,95Dkr

Cacharel Catch Me Perfume
Booo :( As a perfume allergic I cant test this. I'm putting it in my "give away" box

Look how pretty that bottle is on the pic! Curse my allergies

Gosh Light´N Shine Lip Glaze, Pick Me
This is really a treat! Full size and limited edition; can one ask for more?

It got a mirror on the side - very clever!

and light in the top!

The applicator is a brush. Not very innovative but it suits the texture of the gloss. It is VERY sticky! The scent and taste make me think of candy apples, and the texture; Syrup. I WANT to love it but I have a hard time with sticky gloss.
I couldn't find the ingredients list, if anyone knows where to find it let me know!

The color is a dark plum with a hint of red. Like red wine (or candy apples).The shine is so intense,  a real eye catcher! 
Retail is 99Dkr

And as a goodbye, a pic of me I took trying to get a good picture of the gloss - sexy pout yeah! 

Fun fact of the Day: Hair is made of keratin, same as your nails!

Wednesday Wishing Well

Every Wednesday ill blog about something I wish for. Something I cant buy right away or maybe ever, things that may be to expensive or to hard to get my hands on. And now presenting this weeks wish!  

A Typewriter!
An old fashioned clickedyclackding typewriter! It would be sooo awesome to sit and write in my favorite recipes or poems or anything really! I love the clickedyclackding sound, the feel of typing and the look of the  inked letters on the paper <3

Fun Fact of the day: Lack of D-vitamin makes you tired. Get plenty of sun in the summer to charge your batteries and supplement with a sun therapy lamp in the winter

The black trap - how to get more color

I see many of my fellow plus sizes dress in black. All black. Not only that, but plus size brands tend to sell tons and tons of dark and loose clothes. Some only carry clothes that seem like - at least in my eyes - garbage bags. Loose, black and not flattering for anyone. My mom did it as well, and it horrified me every time she walked publicly in her black over sized shirts.
I get it. I get why black is the easy choice. Black makes you appear smaller, its a color you can hide in. Baggy clothes so no one can see your curves. But you know what? You might as well hold a big sign above your head saying "I'M FAT AND INSECURE"

Change is hard tough, so here's my two best advises on how to make your black wardrobe a little more color full :D

Colorful Bags
A bag is a great way to to add a splash of color without going to far. Its a way you can ease into using more colors in your style and key rings can add even more bling.

Jewelry is by far the easiest way to be more colorful. Big chunky statement necklaces also make you look slimmer and draws positive attention

Fun Fact of the Day: The first bra was two handkerchiefs tied together with ribbon
