Mini beauty haul

Hi everyone!

Today is time for a mini beauty haul. I needed/wanted a few things so I got them the last 2 weeks.

The first item I got is the L’oreal Sublime Soft Eau Micellaire (dry or combination skin). I got this because I am running out on my Bioderma Eau Micellaire. I do like the Bioderma one, but I wanted to try out some other ones as well and the best thing is that the one from L’oreal only was around 4,50€, where the Bioderma one is around 17€. The second product I bought is from Qiriness, it is the Elixir Eclat Parfait. This product is a serum for anti-redness and anti-spots. It’s supposed to get rid of any redness and dark spots. Lately I suffer from redness on my cheeks, and I hope by using this it will calm my skin and reduce the redness. I bought this one instead of the Estee Lauder Even Skintone Illuminator. Because the Illuminator from Estee Lauder is supposed to put a little bit of glow on your skin, and I try to avoid that because I have a combination to oily skin. The next product is a lipstick from Mac and it is in the color Amorous (AB2). It is a satin finish lipstick. I was looking for a darker berry-colored lipstick and I went to Mac to look for one. I tried out a few colors, but this one looked nicest. Because my skin is somewhat lighter in the winter I didn’t want a color that was to dark. This one is just perfect. It is a nice berry color that is not to dark. The last product that I bought is the Longlasting eye pencil waterproof in Moss undercover. It is a darker metallic green color. I always use a black one, and I wanted to try out something else. Since the darker green is a fall/winter color I wanted to give that one a try. I already used the black one from Catrice and I like the product, so that is why I got their green one.

September favorites <3 2013

Hi everyone!

It’s that time again for monthly favorites!

I didn’t try out much new products because it was kind of a hectic month. I graduated, I went cat-sitting for my uncle and aunt, I had to take care of some paper work and I am looking for a job now. So not to much time to buy new stuff.

Although I did buy one thing this month that made my favorites, and that is the Macadamia Moisturizing Rinse. It is a daily conditioner, you put it on after you used your shampoo and after a minute you rinse it out. It makes your hair so smooth and easy to brush, which is ideal for me because I have really tangled hair after washing it. I also have 2 lip favorites. When I don’t want to use a bold lip color I reach for my Nyx lipgloss in beige. It is just the perfect neutral color. Another favorite is the Clinique chubby stick in Super Strawberry. It is a slightly darker color, but it still is pretty neutral. I love the consistency of the chubby stick, it is moisturizing, it doesn’t dry out your lips and it has a good color payoff. For the eyes I have also 2 favorites, well actually 3, but the third one is the Covergirl under-eye concealer. It’s ideal to cover up dark circles. And the best thing is that it is moisturizing. I personally think it is important to moisturize the under-eye area, because it is a very delicate area that needs a good treatment. This month I used a lot of neutral eye make-up and for that I used my Wet’n’wild trio in Walking on Eggshells. This trio is ideal for a quick neutral look. And the last eye products is the Catrice Longlasting eye liner in black. Despite it is not a waterproof liner, it does stay on all day. I also use it when I go swimming, and even then it stays on. My last favorite is the grey Swarovski wrap bracelet I got as a present for the cat-sitting. A wrap bracelet was on my wishlist, but I didn’t really found one that could go with a lot of outfits, but this one surely does because I already wore it a lot.

What were your favorites during September?

Mini haul – fashion / beauty

Hi Everyone!

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!
