Essence things

Today we passed by Kruidvat and I had a look at the counters for a bit, difficult to ever leave without any Essence or Catrice item ;P They had this silly, but so cute Wood you love me Essence collection, I’m a sucker for foresty things and got some stuff. I’m totally not the target…

Morphe 39A swatches

I talked with my friend and she will give a home to all the eyeshadows from this palette that I don’t keep, so I went ahead with swatching and depotting. I’m still deciding which I keep. I am so glad I swatched these because they are probably* the best eyeshadows I own. They’re super pigmented,…

Depotting Anastasia Beverly Hills, Morphe, Kat von D palettes

I did it! There will still be one or two more posts about the Morphe Dare to Create 39A palette, but here I will talk exclusively about depotting. For a moment there, when things looked bleak, I almost regretted my attack on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance and Kat von D Shade and Light…

Further doubt cast upon 39A

Summary: Does anyone want this palette minus 11 shades? 28A* anyone? ;D We’ve got a sunny day and in between bouts of migraine I inspected and compared and photographed Morphe’s 39A palette to eyeshadows in my collection. I am now more confused than ever 😀 Again I have not swatched and am not ready to do…

Morphe 39A

I believe this palette is going out of production? Anyhow, I had been considering to get it for a while and finally did. I’m still on the fence if I’m going to keep it or not. I have not swatched any shade yet and I’m gonna sit on it for a while (wow, I’m so…

Aachen DM

Babe is 9,5 months old! I still rarely wear makeup since he sleeps next to my vanity and I don’t want to disturb him while he sleeps (I leave for work before he wakes up, most days). It is just no fun to put on makeup standing in the bathroom. Last time I went to…

Nyx

Now that my sweet babe is 4 months old, we ventured on a longer day trip to visit my friend in Antwerp. I had wanted to go to the new (to me) Nyx store and so we did! I had a long list of things to have a look at, but unfortunately the prices in…

The Body Shop Matte lip liquid in Mauritius Dahlia 017 review

So here it finally is… I have no luck whatsoever with “liquid” lipsticks of any kind (I’ve also so far refused to spend much on them, which might be a wise decision). I’ve already given away everything I’ve tried. This will also go. I REALLY wanted to like it. I tried many times. In short As…

Kryolan concealer circle

I have a Kryolan concealer circle that I bought in Barcelona, at the theatrical makeup store Gòtic. I really like it and use it nearly every time I do my makeup. As I was informed in the store (and I’ve heard mentioned several times online as well) the product in these concealer circles is actually…

All my foundations

Swatches   As promised, there they are! all 11 of them*! how decadent! *Hm, 10 + my shade adjusting drops 😉 Thing is, we keep on complaining, but I’ve never seen such variety of light shades (more or less) readily available before. Most of these are very affordable. I just can’t bring myself to spend a…

Colourpop (AKA well, FUCK YOU TOO, Belgian customs)

After carefully planning my first Colourpop order so as not to surpass the 22€ value limit over which customs charges in this country (value of my order was about 18€ after currency conversion), I had my package stopped, retained 11 days, and charged 25€ for their trouble (15 full € for, literally “formalities”, 11 days rent,…

Washing

This is how I wash my brushes. I try to wash once a week, but some cream products that dry and set I wash after use, and being generally on synthetic brushes, often I’ll just reach for my bar of hand soap of the moment. I do the same with brushes that have lipstick on…
