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…

NYX review: matte, round and full throttle

So… well this has been a long time in the making. I got these ages ago: Truth is I haven’t been wearing bold lips as much as I’d want to. In summer when it is very hot I don’t feel like it because of the melty weather. Plus I had allergies. In winter, I am one…

Sugarpill!

I finally got some Sugarpill stuff! In keeping with my new year’s resolution 😉 I ordered two red eyeshadows: loose Asylum and pressed Love + This was my first time ordering anything from Poland: bestmakeup.pl and I received the package in three days 🙂 also, no custom charges from Poland! They have a nice selection of brands,…

Finally

After keeping an eye out for months, yesterday I finally found the lightest locally available shade of Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum … which sadly isn’t 51 but 52. It didn’t look too bad swatched next to the regular HM 51 though, and I have my TBS shade adjusting drops anyway. I think it is still the…

Six discounted items, +

I went to the center yesterday and came back with a few things. It is difficult to resist the discounts 😉 and today I also got a couple of Essence brushes and an eyeshadow primer. From Kiko I got a high pigment eyeshadow, another sparkling trail stick eyeshadow, and… a nail polish! bad I know. These…

Neve cosmetics

Another package! woot! BTW shipping took basically one day, superb service and delivery. And that box! What I got: Jellyfish*, Seahorse*, Compilation*, Red Carpet, Submarine* Oyster*, Tattoo The pigments (marked *) are of nice quality, comparable to pigments/loose shadows from other indie companies. The eyeshadows (both are matte) are so-so in texture, a little patchy…

Nabla, Kiko, Lollipops & TBS swatches

Ok, so it is still kinda dark, but we’ll do what we can. As expected, yesterday I received the highly anticipated (I’m not normally like this, must be the hormones!) Nabla package. I could simply not wait to swatch the eyeshadows… I took some pictures beforehand in artificial light, which I don’t really like to…

Some new things and an update

So I have not posted in a while. Several things have been going on. I’m now 7 months pregnant, keeping my nails short and bare, and so have abandoned the nail polish challenge for the time being. I plan on returning to it. I still have been a good girl and not bought any nail…
