NOTD // BOYSENBERRY

As soon as the calendar says 1. September, I bring out my darker and much loved polish shades. Normally I go for the dark red and burgundy colours but in this case I fell head over heels for this beauty. I la la love my darker nails and I could easily wear them all year round. More fitting for spring/summer are my love for pastels.

This Gina Tricot Beauty Boysenberry is a gorgeous red-toned purple. I had this on last week and now I just have to apply it again – that’s how much I love it. I sense a monthly fave! The polishes from GT are ok, they are not the best but a good Top Coat will do the tricker. 

What are you wearing on your nails atm? What is your fave colour for A/W?

Lots of love

HAUL // MY FIRST BITS FROM MAKEUP REVOLUTION

I actually had an #lfbeautybox post planned but I wished and sat by the door this morning and it worked. My Makeup Revolution parcel arrived. I actually think that the postman got surprized by how quick I opened the door. haha. 

Last week, I convinced my sister to make an order with me on Makeup Rev’s siteOh little convincing needed.  I just thought that she needed more make up – but who doesn’t? I have been seeing lots of tweets, blogposts and instagram pictures and I really needed to try some bits so we made a small order last week just to try it out and the parcel already arrived. Yaaas, that was quick!

I won’t say much about the products other than: 
– Yes I needed a purple PURPLE lippy 
– Yes I need more blushes. && look at this beauty! 
– And no, I haven’t heard a lot about the eye primer but it sounded interesting

– Yes, yes & yes – I will be ordering from MR again. Their customer service is fab – especially their contact via twitter. 


Have you made an order from Makeup Rev? Have you tried any of these products? 

Lots of love

HOW TO // PERFECT MATTE LIP ft. NYX MATTE LIPSTICK

Hi there lovely ladies! How are you this Friday? Hopefully you have a nice weekend planned? I have to work and then I will relax with writing on my blogs. A nice and cosy weekend. 

It’s mid November and my mood have been christmassy for over a month now – already! I love that the supermarkets, shopping malls and the city is starting to get all decorative. There is just something about Christmas that makes it my favourite time of the year. It’s cosy, everyone is happy and you can spoil your loved ones. 

I also love that you can wear a red lip on a daily basis without people starring too much. Now, I love a red lip but what I love more is a matte red lip. So I thought that I would share my how to get the perfect matte red lip. 

The first product I use is a lip scrub. Exfoliation is a must when I have to apply a matte lip. It removes the dead skin and smooths the lips. I la la love my LUSH Mint Julips. The price is good, the taste is fab and it just works as it should. Now I love a good mint flavoured lip scrub so when my LUSH one rand out I picked this Sara Happ Peppermint up. This is a lot more expensive but dang I love it. 

Next you need some hydration and moisture. I love to apply my Nivea Lip Butter. This one is the original one but any flavour is great. Moisture is the key to a good matte lip. Lastly, you will need the colour – duuh. This NYX Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red is gorgeous! I love the formula, I love the colour. It’s just fab! It glides on and stay put for lots of hours.  

Volá. Perfect matte lips just in time for the Christmas season!

Do you love matte lips as much as I do? Which matte lipstick is your fave?


Lots of love

WISH LIST // THE ONE WITH BEAUTY BOOKS

THE ONE WITH BEAUTY BOOKS

The weather is not with me today so I can’t take good pictures. I’m sat here listening to Michael Buble – yes his Christmas album. Ups! While listening to this festive music, I’m also peeking on Amazon for some studio lights so I can take pictures here in the AW season. Oh well. 
Instead of a review I have a Wish List for you today. I recently got my hands in my first beauty book. It was on offer and I thought – why not!? This buy resulted in me wanting more. More beauty knowledge and books. So I made a little wish list with ones I REALLY WANT. 

A little note: No, I don’t know what wrong with me. Why haven’t I got my mitts in Lauren Conrads Beauty – I just.. don’t know *slaps on the wrist*

Do you have any beauty books? Any of these? 

Lots of love

BEAUTY BOX // LOOK FANTASTIC OKTOBER

I like, I LOVE beauty boxes. It’s like getting a surprice every month – except for the fact that I pay for it myself 😉


The market for beauty boxes and “surprise”in general seems to be growing and you have a lot of choices. I have only once been subcribed to a beauty box – and it was fine but then again not totally worth trowing £15 after it every month. You also HAD to be subcribed for the box every month – which my wallet wasn’t really hooting for. So I’m so happy that Look Fantastic came out with this badass beauty box where you don’t have to be tied up – you only have to remember to order next months box before it gets sold out. Easy peasy. 

This is the first box – out of, hopefully, many – I have received. I think it is a quite nice box for only £15 if I might say so. As you can see on the pictures I got 7 products which I’m looking forward to test and review on a later stage. 

All of the products are travel size which is nice when you’re trying new products out. One product however is full size, the Balance Me Facial Expression Filler which is £22 – this product costs more than the whole box – woot woot! 

Here’s a list of all the products, prices and links:

L’oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Pro-Keratin Refill (Shampoo 75 ml) – Full Size 250 ml, £10.99
L’oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Pro-Keratin Refill (Hår Maske 75 ml) – Full Size 200 ml, £13.99
Korres Citrus Shower Gel (50 ml) – Full Size 250 ml, £8
KMS California Free Shape Quick Blow Dry (75 ml) – Full Size 200 ml,  £11.45
Balance Me Facial Expression Filler (15 ml) – Full Size 15 ml, £22 
Gatineau Paris Collagene Expert Ultimate Smoothing Cream (15 ml) – Full Size 50 ml, £54.19
This Works Sleep Plus Pillow Spray (5 ml) – Full Size 75 ml, £25 (not shown)

Have you tried any of the products? Or the box?

Quick Post // Danish Readers

Hi guys! I just wanted to write a quick post to all of my Danish readers. As I want to let them know that I’ve created a Danish blog. If you clicked onto this post in hope of a new post – look no further than clicking this link. I just posted a mascara review – is it a love or hate? Take a peek <3

Hey piger! 

Jeg ved faktisk ikke hvor mange der er derude af jer, men har ville bare lige gøre jer opmærksom på, at jeg har startet en dansk version op af Little Beauty Laugh. Der kommer nogenlunde samme indlæg op og så alligevel ikke. Det ville gøre mit hjerte glad hvis I ville gå ind og følge min nye baby på bloglovin (link) eller på facebook (link) – eller evt begge 😉 


Tip tip: Regner med at smide en lille konkurrence op i slut oktober eller start november <3 

I må have en rigtig dejlig aften! 

Lots of love

BEAUTY BITS, REVIEW

Review // L’oréal Paris Miss Manga Mega Volume Mascara

Yes, I’m one of those lucky ones with great eyelashes which means that I rarely find a mascara that I don’t like at all. I can almost always find some that I like or that I really really love. This isn’t the case though. I don’t want to get all negative about this mascara – but I think a good blog contains both the positive but also negative reviews. So here it goes. This mascara is the L’oréal Paris Miss Manga Mega Volume. I won this mascara and a whole box full of wonderfull makeup, thanks to you – so thank you or… Ah, just kidding. 

I have heard quite a bit about this one – from a lot of UK bloggers and youtubers and I’m just not as impressed as everyone seems to be. First of all, I really don’t like the bending function but I think that’s a matter of personal taste. Another thing that I’m not keen on is the tapered brush. I have owned ones with tapered brushes that worked fine but in this case – nah. It is like the product accumulates to the “top” part of the brush which means that the inner lashes gets to much product on them. 

Lastly – I really don’t like the formulation. It is sticky, has a weird smell.. The smell is something I could be okay with if the formulation was good. 

Funny story – that wasn’t so fun: One of the days I tested it I had to go to work. I jumped on the bike and it was windy with a lot of small bugs in the air. The mascara was SO sticky that the small bugs got stuck on my lashes – what the F… No go mascara for me! 

No-go’s:

– Bending funktion – personally not my taste
– Non-functioning tapered brush
– Too much product gets on the inner lashes 
– Sticky and smelly

Have you tried the Miss Manga Mega Volume Mascara? What were our experience?


Lots of love
