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…

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…

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…

NYX lip swatches

I’ve had this post in drafts for ages. Thing is, I wanted to do lip swatches + review of these NYX lipsticks I got a while back, but I simply haven’t been wearing deep shades because it has been too damn hot. I’ve worn Circe and Butter, a few times, but only some of the…

NYX comparisons

I took a few comparison pictures of the NYX lipsticks I got recently with some other lipsticks I own. As a reminder I got these: I don’t have a huge collection so these are for the greatest part not swatches in the search for dupes, but I find this type of swatch very helpful when…

Swash

I was applying Rebel (MAC) straight from the bullet, and I really liked the first swash on the bottom lip, so I left it like that and added a little concealer to the rest of the lip.

Bronzer?

I am not into trends much, so I’ve gotten by all these years without a “bronzer” or a conturing anything. Don’t get angry at me for considering it a trend, it has been going on for quite a while, I know, but… when it comes to makeup I’m more into either classic 30’s-40’s, goth-20’s or…

Kryolan reds

Over the years I have accumulated… 4 Kryolan red lipsticks 🙂 ok, that’s not a lot, but my makeup collection is small. Every few years I end up wandering in the stage makeup store and buying one. They’re pretty terrible in fact, they are creamy… I mean greasy, and bleed like crazy. But I have…
