Benefit Cosmetics has launched a new blush palette called Cheek Parade and it’s a showstopper!
Exciting! This is my first time trying out a palette by Tarte. The reason I bought this palette was simple, I had my eyes on Tarte for a while, and when I bumped into this mini-palette online, I knew it was perfect to take with me when I head to work or go out.
Every now and then I like to change up my daily skin care routine. The past few months I’ve been dealing with bad breakouts and acne, which really frustrated me. I started using the Drying Lotion by Mario Badescu and became an instant fan. I wanted to try more of their skin care, so I ordered the Anti-Aging Kit. Not really worried about getting older, so I didn’t buy it to prevent wrinkles or anything… but this set contains glycolic acid, which helps prevents and fight acne. Let me show you the set, and I’ll also show you the Drying Lotion!
I made a pact with myself a while ago, that I wouldn’t buy any more eyeshadows palettes. But then the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self-Made Palette became available in the Netherlands! This is just such gorgeous palette, I just couldn’t help myself. I’ve been using it for a few months now, so it’s about time that I share my opinion on it, as well as swatches and eye looks.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall — What’s the Freshest Fragrance of Them All?
Meet Moschino Fresh Couture!
Moschino has released their latest spring/summer fragrance for 2016 — and it’s so cool! Moschino is known for their unique concepts each season, and with Jeremy Scott as it’s creative director, they’ve taken thinking out of the box to a whole new level with the new Fresh Couture Eau de Toilette!
The liquid matte trend is here to stay! I’ve seen a lot of amazing liquid mattes on the internet, but a lot of those aren’t sold here in the Netherlands, and that makes it a little too expensive for me.( I’m still hoping those Anastasia liquid lipsticks will eventually come to the make up stores here in the Netherlands.)
Today I’m reviewing the budget friendly version, the”Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss” by L.A. Girl Cosmetics. I love a matte lip and was dying to try these out. It’s a matte gloss that comes in sixteen colors. L.A Girl Cosmetics describes it as an ”Intense color in a flat finish for all day wear. The long wearing formula goes on as a high pigmented liquid and dries to a flat matte finish leaving lips colored in gorgeous velvety perfection that last and lasts.”
Sounds great right! Curious to see which colors I picked ?
After seeing so many make up tutorials featuring this concealer, I couldn’t resist and ordered the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I’ve been using the MAC Pro Longwear concealer for a while now, but I felt it was time to try something new.
It’s all about the brows this season, they’re no way around it. They can be all natural or extremely groomed. Ooh I would love to be the proud owner of a pair of perfectly shaped brows, but sadly, I wasn’t blessed with that. So I really need help, other wise I kind of look like an alien.( without brows.. ) And that’s not a pretty sight! I’ve used a lot of different products over the years, and my favorite products are by far the Make Up Forever Brow Tint and the Anastasia Brow Wiz and Dipbrow Pomade. But since Make Up Forever is no longer sold here in the Netherlands, and Anastasia products are quite expensive, I wanted to try and find an affordable similar product. I found the Make Up Revolution Ultra Brow Tint online, and quickly ordered it. Take a closer look and check out my swatches and review!
I’ve been to Amsterdam and did a little sale shopping at Flormar, a budget make up brand. These are my first Flormar products, so I can’t wait to try them out. The shop in Amsterdam is very small, and so easily crowded. A short while after I came in, a large group of screaming children entered, so I really didn’t spend that long inside. Too bad, because I would really like to try some other products too, like their lipsticks. I basically ended up grabbing a few sale products and running out the store as fast I could get out, it was just too crowded and noisy.
Take a look at my Flormar sale shoplog!
