Mua - undressed eyeshadow palette

English - Nederlands


I love experimenting with eye shadow. I love nude colors and shimmer so when I spotted this palette in the Kruidvat, I knew I had to try it.  I heard a lot of beautybloggers rave about this palette so I knew it couldn't be bad. I already owned a blush and two single eye shadows which pleasantly surprised me. Now of coarse the pigmentation between  a palette and single eye shadows aren't always the same. 
The pigmentation is perfect for being a drugstore product. Only the matte colors aren't as good so you have to rub a bit harder to  get good pigmentation from it. 
The shimmery colors can  leave a bit fall out but that's not a big problem since you can  easily wipe it away. 
I'm very enthusiastic  about this palette and I think the quality is like the sleek palettes. 
You can buy this one for only €5.00 in the drugstore.

Kiko - Ipanema Peach

English - Nederlands

Today I decided not to review a lipstick but one of my other make-up obsessions: Blush! 
Every color can change your face and for the summer time I was looking for a warmer blush without to much glitter. In Germany I visited the Kiko store and I was planning to buy myself a new blush but I didn't see one I really liked from there permanent collection. 
While snooping around, I saw this lovely blush from the Life in Rio collection. The packaging is just stunning and bright and colorful!  This Sun lovers blush gives it's name credit because it looks lovely with a little tan. Since i'm so pale I almost reflect light, I use this blush and bronzer to give my face a bit more color. 
I love that you can choose how dark you want your blush/bronzer to be.  
One thing I didn't wanted was a blush with glitter and even though this one has golden shimmer in it, I still love it. It's not to dramatic when you apply it so it just gives you that beautiful golden glow. 
The colors are super pigmented and personally I love it when you mix the blush and bronzer together.
For this beauty you pay €14,90 and you can buy it online at  www.kikocosmetics.com

Demak'up facelook - Purple Ombre

English - Nederlands

I think that almost everyone knows I'm addicted to the color purple. Now that's it's also a trend color I couldn't be more excited to use this one for the Demak'up facelook contest. 
We had to create a look that wasn't only wearable but also unique and trendy. 
Purple ombre it is. 

I decided to create two options for this look. The focus was on the eyes since it is about the purple. For option one I went with a nude lip to make it more wearable fur during the day. 
The second option is more for during the evening and has an ombre lip. Purple as well as ombre is a huge trend so I thought this would be perfect together. 
What's also fun, is that the purple eyeshadow has a blue sheen to it... and yes, blue is also a trend color! 
I'm very exited to see what  everyone thinks about these looks!

Roc - skincare event + review

English - Nederlands

A few week ago I received an invitation for the Roc event in Brussels. Full of enthusiasm I looked for someone to go with me since I wasn't allowed to take the train alone. 
Luckily for me, my cousin wanted to come so on 24 April we took the train to explore Brussels and go to the event. We were a bit afraid to  take the subway but it turned out to be easier than we thought it would be, only the Pizzahut we couldn't find. Thank god we found the location of the event pretty easy! 
Ones we arrived  I saw some , to me unknown, Belgium bloggers. We were offered drinks and a snack and got some information about Roc and it's skincare line. After that it was up to us to get a facial and try out some of the products. We could also get our make-up done but since we had to catch our train back home, we just took a little Polaroid. Then we got to pick out two products of choice to take home and try out. 
I really had a fun day!  
If you want to see if I liked the products, keep reading.

P2 - Oxford street

English - Nederlands

Lipstick will always be my  all time favorite product when it comes to make-up. Don't ask me why, but I just love it!  When I was in Germany I just had to make a stop at the DM and buy a few lipsticks. Oxford street was one of them.  
I have read so many positive reviews about P2 lipsticks. They wouldn't only be budget proof but also have an amazing pigmentation. 
When I threw this bad boy in my shopping basket I was a bit hesitated because I thought it would be a bit of a disappointment. 
This one turned out to be just wauw... 
I just can't give it a better word then wauw. The pigmentation pleasantly surprised me because the color is just so intense. With only one swipe you have the exact same color as in the bullet. 
I also find this lipstick very pleasant to apply. It's pretty creamy which makes it feel like a lipbalm. The fact that it stays on for about 4-5 hours makes it even better. 
Only €1,95 does this lipstick costs which is definitely worth going to the DM! 
Ps: sorry for the lack of posts the past week. The are renovating my house so it was a bit difficult to find the time to take pictures and then (like the renovating part isn't enough) my SD-cart broke down... I'm now borrowing my dad's SD-card since he doesn't really uses his camera!

April favorites

English - Nederlands

I didn't do any favorites last month. I'm the kind of person who sticks to the same products so it was difficult to find new favorites. 
So  let's start this favorites post with this lovely nail polish from Estee Lauder. 
I'm so happy I picked this one up in sale because it's such a lovely color. It looks very elegant on the nails and stays on pretty long. Despite I had to pay €10.50, I'm  still happy I bought it. 
Normally it was around €21 so I did a pretty good deal.
