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…

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,…

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…

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…

A little haul

Today I went for a walk and had a look at some things, well you know. TBS I actually had these lightening drops from TBS in my wishlist. Useful thing to have, and at 14 euro, not bad at all. The lipstick is their scrub lipstick. At 10 euro it is a little overpriced, but…

Some more stuff

Ok, I’m sort of back. So, thingies I got these last few weeks. Let’s go backwards. Just yesterday, in Kruidvat, I got 4 little things: I wasn’t really planning on getting anything, but while my friend was browsing… well, I also browsed. I got this mascara basically because I liked the packaging (yeah I know),…

Inglot + Kiko haul

I’ve been looking at getting some Inglot eyeshadows, and as I was browsing the .nl website I saw there is actually a shop in Belgium! I thought it would be better to try them in person so yesterday I went to Hasselt to the Inglot store. I have to say this was a very disappointing visit!…

NYX & more

Woot! huge haul! this is huge for me 😉 I got two packages from the UK, one from Boots and one from Feel Unique. After years of hearing about Nyx, I finally decided to try some lipsticks. I browsed swatches for ages and watched some videos. I had a list, but could not find all…

A quickie

With craptastic pictures, but I want to have this for future reference, and it will suffice. Yesterday I went to the local drugstore to get some things. I don’t think I can go there and not come back with some Cosnova or other… and it is difficult to feel guilty at this price point. I…

Kiko mini haul

Ok granted, all my “hauls” are mini  😀 I try to keep my makeup collection small. Haha. But yes, I do. This afternoon I passed by Kiko and after agonising for a while and testing several things several times in different ways, I got three things, a Fine Art Eye Pencil in 01 (this is LE),…
