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…

More depotting

I really should keep better inventory… but what a boring post would that be! Last Friday I depotted 10 shadows that had been waiting for a while, since I had run out of magnets. And palettes 😉 Last week I bought a new MAC palette (with clear cover), I like these because they’re pretty deep and baked…

More Kiko cream crush

I popped into te Kiko store the other day and came out with a couple more cream crush cream shadows, 07 and 16. Yes, I said I was not taken by any of the other colours offered (I already had 04 and 08), but they were at half price so I thought I’d get a…

MAC Pearled earth / Kiko cream crush 08

Some time ago I got this MAC eyeshadow, and I think I forgot to post about it. It is still potted so it must be after July when I went on a depotting frenzy. It’s from some LE or other and I don’t remember how I ran across a swatch of it on the internet,…

TBS lightening drops and L’Oreal perfect match

This will be a bit of a comparison post since what’s the point otherwise?? I think the lightening drops will come in handy as winter approaches – for all those foundations which are a tad too dark. The top of my arm got quite tanned this summer since I only applied sunscreen on my face…

#18

Yesterday’s choice is a mix I made years ago. I started out with Nivea 97 Berry gloss. This was a jelly like polish and these, in darker colours, never work on me because of my deep ridges. I seem to have added a cream blue and some silver sparkle to it, or a sparkly very blue…

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…

15, 16 & 17

For 15 I wore a black with subtle warm-toned shimmers. 16 was a dud that is going into the garbage, not only is it yellow (bought to mix into greens, no doubt) It’s also runny and somehow, simultaneously, gloopy. So off it came to make space for 17, which is red. It is a double…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance swatch comparisons

I like to do these exercises to see how new shades I get compare to (or combine with) other shades I already have. It has the downside that I might then decide I didn’t need the product in the first place 😉 I think in this case I’m relatively safe though. There are a number of…

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…

Too awesome

I won’t post swatches because they’re all over the internet… I’ll see if I can find any other shadows for comparison swatches, since those are useful.

Matte neutral eyeshadow comparison swatches

Now I think all of these are “neutrals”, because if you ask me, true neutrals are white, true grey and black. So these are anything but, they are all touched by red/yellow (brown) and/or blue (purple) – well, the KVD palette has a white and a black. But these are known as neutrals out in…
