You know I have to try it when Essence releases a new foundation. So when I spotted the #Insta Perfect foundation, I knew I wanted to give it a go. Because whenever a budget friendly foundation comes along that has potential, I am all game for trying it. And there is another reason why this foundation is unique in Essence’s range: it is their first foundation that comes in more than 3 shades.
I’ve decided to rename my Random Outfits to What I Wore. Don’t know why I didn’t think of it before, but these blog posts are more of an overview of a few outfits that I managed to capture throughout a few weeks or so. We’ve been having quite the Indian summer here and so I have been wearing some hot weather outfits that I wouldn’t usually wear in September. Here’s what I wore recently.

I already showed you part 1 of my September 2018 empty products, but since I had too much for one video, I am showing you the rest today. And the rest entails skincare, haircare and bodycare. As you may know, I always use up these products before moving on to the next one, so there is always a lot here. Click here if you haven’t seen part 1 yet!

The flying saucer highlighters by Becca are not only iconic for their packaging, but also for their insane glow. The shade selection isn’t my favorite, which is why so far I only owned Pearl. I know everyone loves Moonstone for fair skins, but it is too yellow for me. Luckily Becca continues to expand their shade range and I was excited when I saw Prismatic Amethyst.

It’s long since been July & August, I totally realize that, but I hadn’t had time yet to post my review of my July & August reads. So this is that post. And since I read a total 11 books, more than I could fit in my opening picture. So there is a lot here, so let’s go.
Book Review | July & August 2018
I haven’t had much luck trying super affordable eyeshadow primers. I have used some, one even by Catrice, and none of them did the trick for me. The most successful eyeshadow primer I’ve tried at the most affordable price point is the Milani eyeshadow primer. But now there is a new contender. Catrice have released a new eyeshadow primer for their fall/ winter 2018 collection. Is it any good?

Time for empties! It’s been a few months since I showed you and I feel I have sooo many exciting empties for you. For one, there are many products I used up. That is not unusual for me though. I use up skincare, bodycare and haircare before moving on to the next product. Where I make the biggest dent? Makeup & perfume! I used up multiple perfumes and this is quite possibly the most makeup I ever have. Since there is so much here, I figured it would be best to split up the video. Today’s video will focus on my empty perfumes, nailcare and makeup items.
