Also known as “The One That Was Supposed To Be Called Summer Bases But Evolved Into Winter Foundations” ( somehow I hardly wore any bases between May and October). Foundations and coverage have found their way back into my make up stash, and these 4 bases have been tried and tested these last few months. Spoiler alert, there were 2 absolute winners, one that...Comments 0
The beauty of a beauty excorcism
“The beauty exorcism” It was but a quick title in my inbox, with clickbait allures written all over it, designed especially to draw me in and extend my (already extensive) procrastination with another 15 – 30 mintes, but the words hit home and started living their own life, creating a story in my head and trickling into my subconscious. With Autumn in full swing,...
Easy Peasy Summer Breezy Breakfast
Oh hey, I know, it’s been longer than usual. Life has been so hectic these past few weeks that I haven’t been able to keep up with the blog updates. As much as I love the blog, sometimes life needs to come first and take over. Today started as any other work-from-home day ( it is 10 pm as I’m writing this…). I woke...
Kneipp Patchouli and Shea Butter Body Cream
I feel like I am going about this winter skin thing backwards, as I am only now getting round to writing about the “fattiest” cream that kept me going this winter, but somehow my skin only realized winter had kicked in about a month and a half ago. Up until the end of January, I was happily lathering myself with the La Roche Posay Lipikar...
Weleda Beauty Balm
Now here’s a first: I am not madly in love with these balms. And I am not afraid to say it. Just putting it out there. No cushioning, no beating about the bush, no diplomatic euphemisms, no nothing. My skin doesn’t like these balms, and these balms don’t like my skin. That being said, this in no way, shape or form means that the...
Also known as back to basics. Some days you just wake up, jumping for joy at the idea of doing a three or four shadow look, foundation, concealer, eyeliner, the whole shebang. Today is not that kind of day! Today, less is more rules the roost! My skin is in tip top shape, my under eye area is neither blue nor baggy for the...
Into the Glow
Into the glow we go! After a long festive season, a polar vortex winter and the mother of all allergic reactions, I am more than ready to welcome Spring and reclaim that glow! I might have to wait a bit longer to feel that first crisp in the air or see those first buds on the trees, but I do have a few new...
A few months ago I started dying my hair again. That whole “I’m going to rock my natural hair colour”-thing didn’t exacly do it for me, so I am back to being an blonde and basking in it! My hair is a frizzy mess if I don’t style it, but a dry mess when I take care of that frizz, so with three blow...
Filorga Oil Absolute
Bonjour mes amours! It is the week of love, and if there is anything I love, love, love in beauty, face oil takes that crown. My adoration of face oils has been well documented here on LeenLovesStyle, especially when my skin’s feeling dry and tight due to a change in seasons, a lack of hydration or after a retinol or AHA binge. I usually...
Vichy Liftactiv Vitamin C Brightening Skin Corrector
A 10 day booster treatment of a few drops a day for an improve skin texture and a brighter skin tone? Colour me excited! The press release for this tickled my fancy in a flash, and I could not wait to photograph and test this beaut’ as soon as it dropped into the LLS postbox. First things first, what is it that I rambling...
