October favorites 2013 <3

Hi everyone!

Oh my god! The months are going so quickly lately. Just two more months and we are in 2014. So this means it’s time for some monthly favorites.

First product that I liked is a haircare product. It’s the Macademia deep repair masque. I already bought it at the end of September, but because you can only use this product once a week I couldn’t tell back then if it was good or not. But now I can say that it is an awesome product! There will be coming a full review soon.
For skincare then, I really enjoy using the L’Oreal Sublim Soft eau micellaire. It is a toner and make-up remover in one. It’s ideal to use ase a toner/clarifying lotion to cleanse your skin. Or you can use it as a make-up remover. I use it as a replacement for the Bioderma eau micellaire. This product will also get a review soon.
And last I have two make-up products that I constantly use and love. One of them was in my september favorites as well. It is the Clinique Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry. It is such a nice product and color. It is great to throw on while your on the go. It’s easy to apply and it gives a nice color to your lips. The second one is also a lip product and it is a Mac lipstick in Amorous. It is the perfect fall/winter berry color! The lipstick glides on easily and is not really drying for your lips, and it is a beautiful color.

What were your favorites in October?

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.

20131022-192542.jpg
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.

August favorites <3 2013

Hi Everyone!

It’s that time again for the monthly favorites. Time goes by so fast! Every month I will tell you guys what my favorite items were that month.

Most of my favourites were the same as last month, but there are a few new ones.

I still love my Bioderma solution micellaire to clean my skin and to use as a make-up remover. Another thing I use every time is my Good Luck Scrub from Rituals. It has an awesome orange/cedar smell. The products from Rituals feel very luxurious.

For make-up I have a few new favorites. First is a lip product from Rimmel. It’s the Apocolips in the color Stellar. Another new favorite is the Essentiel jumbo lip gloss stick in the color Movie star from ELF, which is a red color. I like it because it glides on easily and is not sticky, and another great thing, it only costs 2,50€ (= 2$). Another product I use constantly and love is my EOS lip balm in the scent summer fruits. I use this as a sort of base for my lips so they stay hydrated. Over to eye make-up, I’m still in love with my Inglot freedom palette. Another little palette that I used a lot and enjoyed using is my Wet & Wild (walking on eggshells), especially the color for the eyelid. I still use my Mac paint pot in the color bare study as my eyeshadow base. It’s a champagne-pink sort of color. When I don’t want to wear to much make-up I just use this as my eyeshadow color. As mascara I used my Maybelline the Rocket daily. I don’t realy have a nailcolor favorite this month, but I did love my Seche Vite fast drying top coat. It is a life saver when you want to repaint your nails often or when you just painted them and you need to go out the door.

I don’t have any fashion favorites this month. The weather changed a few times and therefor I was always wearing different things. I do have 2 accessories as a favorite though. I wore my Tiffany & Co necklace practically every day, and I’m still in love with it. It is one of those pieces that you could always wear. I picked this up when I was in New York with my friends, I wanted something from Tiffany’s and something that I could wear all the time. That’s why I chose the letter N for my name and the hart-shaped Tiffany’s pendant. Another item I wore all the time is my Fossil watch. It is a marble white one with stones around the actual watch part.

That were all my favorites this month. What were your favorites in August?

Late birthday presents

Hi everyone!

A few weeks ago was my birthday and 2 weeks ago I celebrated with a few of my friends. The reason it was so late is because it was very hard to find a date that all of us were free.

This year we arranged something special, kind of a surprise birthday with a twist. The person who’s birthday it is does not know what will go on that day. S the other people have to arrange an activity. Normally the one who’s birthday it was arranged something but we wanted to try out something new. And I have to say that I like this arrangement!

For my birthday we went to Arcen (Holland) and we went to some sort of spa. The water they use in the facilities is mineral water, so it is very good quality water. There were pools (inside and outside), they had a sauna, infra red cabins, hamam, solaria. There was everything you needed. But I have been to better ones. You did have a variety of things to do, but for a few of them you had to pay extra (infra red, hamam, solaria), which makes it kind of an expensive day. In other ones I have been to those things were included in the entrance price. It was a public one (bathing suit required).

But I have to say that we really had fun. And after the spa we went to dinner at a Chinese place near where we live. And while we were there waiting for our dinner I got my presents. I got 2 products from rituals, a scrub (Good Luck Scrub) and a shower gel in the scent sweet orange and cedar wood. It smells so good! I really like the products of Rituals because they smell good and they are great for my skin. I also got a Mac eyeshadow, it’s the paint pot in the color ‘Bare study’. It’s a very neutral champagne-like color. The eyeshadow is a cream shadow so it is very easy to apply (I use my finger because it is easier to apply that way) and it stays on almost the whole day. And last I got a black and gold bracelet. It’s a nice bracelet that goes with a lot of things. And last but not least my day at the spa was also a present.

I also got other presents (mostly money) from family and so, but that was on other days, that’s why I don’t include it here.

What do you guys do for birthdays? And what presents do you like to get?
