I wanted to update you on what little things I’ve been buying in the last two weeks or so. I got a few fashion items and a few beaty items.
Let’s start with the fashion items. I got a black top from Forever21. I realy needed another black top/shirt because my other one is a bit to tight. And I think that everyone should have at least one decent black shirt, so I got myself a new one. The second fashion item I got is a top from Brandy Melville. It’s a racerback top with vintage cameras at the front. I have to admit I never heard of Brandy Melville until last December via Youtube. We didn’t have a Brandy Melville in Belgium, so that’s why I didn’t know it. But I few weeks ago I was walking in Antwerp and there it was… A Brandy Melville in the Huidevetterstraat. So I went in and saw a few fun things, but I realy liked the top with the cameras because I saw someone on Youtube wear it as well. I like the style of the clothes although some things are not realy my cup of tea, they will be seeing more of me in the future.
Next I also got a few beauty items. I got 3 lip-products, 1 nail polish and 2 body products.
I’ll start with the nail polish. It’s one of Koh, and it’s in the shade 252 Play Daily! It’s a dark green shimmery color. It’s perfect for the fall and winter times. The reason I got it now is because it was on sale for 5€ at Ici Paris XL. Normally they sell for 19-20€. And I didn’t have a colour like that, so it was a win-win.
The next thing I got were some lip-products. One is a lipgloss from Dior and it’s the Dior Addict Gloss in the shade 856 Iconic Red. It’s a nice bright, yet a little bit transparant red lipgloss. It gives a lot of colour for a lipgloss, but it still is a bit transparant. If you want longer wear and even more colour payoff I recommend using a red lipstick or some kind. You can find Dior Lipglosses at local beauty specialists.
Because I wanted it to last longer, I got a lipstick to put under it. I didn’t want to spend to much money on it because my main product is the lipgloss. So I went to Kruidvat and looked for a lipstick. At the time, there was a promotion from Catrice (2 lip-products for 5€). So I got myself 2 lipsticks. The one for under the lipgloss is a red lipstick in the colour 260 It’s A Matt Word from the Ultimate Colour range. The second one is in the colour 240 Hey Nude from the Ulitmate Colour range. The nude one does look a bit more brownish in the tube, but it is more a nude colour. I have to say I didn’t know what to expect from these lipsticks but I like them. They have a good colour payoff and they stay on quite long. If you do want to wear them all day, you do have to reapply them during the day.
Last thing I got were 2 body products. One is from Ici Paris XL home brand ONLY YOU. It’s a moisturizing shower cream in the scent Pomegranate Passion. It has a nice fruity scent and I cant wait to try it out. I bought the small version because I wanted to try it out first, to see if I like it. And the last product is the 3 minutes face mask from Yves Rocher, also with a pomegranate scent. I had a coupon to try it out for free, so I wanted to try it out. It says you can use it 2-3 times a week and you just have to put it on, and leave it for 3 minutes and then rince it off with water. It is supposed to give you a clean and soft skin, but I only used it once, so I can’t really say if it works.
So that were all my shopping items. Have a nice day!
