Love, Grace

Guys! I have some serious beauty news to share. And it’s worth so much more than my usual “Catches of the day”. A couple of weeks ago, lovely Grace from BE. Love Grace told me about her fabulous new beauty online shop where she sells Asian sheet masks and asked me whether I was interested in trying them out. Since – as you know – I’m quite conscious about ingredients, I first wanted to know a bit more about those masks. (more…)

Catch of the day: Lip primer

What: MAC Prep + Prime Lip

Why: I love seriously red lips when I go out. It gives you that instant Parisian girl vibe. But red lips need to look perfect and mine just never did. Until Angela told me about this MAC lip primer. I now always swipe it on pre-stain for a bold red Parisian lip that won’t smudge anymore. Hooray!

Green Factor: Not at all… Does anyone know a natural lip primer? Then leave your comment!

Where: Manor, Lucerne (CH)


Catch of the day: Face wash

What: Grown Alchemist Gentle Gel Facial Cleanser

Why: In the morning I don’t have to remove make-up, but I still like to wash my face with a gentle cleanser do get that fresh feeling of freely breathing skin. This one from Australian organic brand Grown Alchemist with its delicate blend of botanical extracts smells fantastic and leaves my face fresh, calm and soothed.

Green Factor: Full of organic botanical ingredients and powerful natural actives. So good!

Where: (not available at the moment)


Catch of the day: Mascara

What: Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Baby Doll

Why: This is my favourite mascara. I have already pretty long lashes, hence I’m rather looking for something that deeply pigments and curls them, so my eyes look more open. This one has it all. The wand coats all my lashes in one stroke and gives me thick, but still flirty and feathery lashes. It also doesn’t flake off my lashes like other mascaras do, but still washes off easily.

Green Factor: There have been greener weeks on The Roaring Prettiness, haven’t there…

Where: Import Parfumerie, Lucerne (CH)

Also available at: pretty much every perfumery

Catch of the day: Blush

What: Dior Cheek & Lip Glow

Why: Incredibly pretty, subtle and weightless colour that gives you this post-exercise glow. Without the exercise, it is. The texture is a gel which dries into a seamless, flat stain that you can’t even feel on your skin.

Green Factor: Errrr… unfortunately not… The cute package pulled at my strings. Guilty!

Where: Boots on Piccadilly Circus, London (UK)

Also available at: Perfumeries, Sephora, department stores


Catch of the day: Micelle Solution
