Music of the Moment | April 2017

Music of the Moment | April 2017

April has been a great music month for me. I finally finished going through heeps of new music in March, which meant I could finally listen to it all in April. So most of these songs are brand spanking new. I was also sent a couple of cool new track by PR, so I will be sharing those with you as well. Found a new favorite artist because of it, so have to share those as well. These are my favorite new tracks for April 2017

Make up memories

Make up memories

Make up has been a love of mine for some years now and that means that I own some make up products that have some dear memories attached to them. From my first face powder, to a bronzer that is too dark and orange, but that I did wear, to that eyeshadow palette I bought on vacation: I thought it would be fun to show you some make up memories.

Make up books

Make up books

Last December I reviewed the new Pixiwoo beauty book. I liked it, but wanted a bit more from it. But that doesn’t mean that I am lost in the make up book department. I already owned a few and realized I hadn’t really shown these before. Which is why I figured I could do a dedicated post to the make up books I own and tell you which ones I would recommend.

Catrice Lip Foundation & Velvet Matt lip pencil

Catrice Lip Foundation & Velvet Matt lip pencil

A very overlooked product from Catrice’s current spring/ summer range are their lip pencils. I haven’t heard anyone talk about these yet and to be quite honest I had all but forgotten about them. When I first spotted these, I was intrigued by their neutral tones. There are two types: lip foundation and velvet matt lip pencils. I tried some from each line.

Make Up Geek Swatches

Make Up Geek is a brand I had been curious about for some time now. When I spotted the full range on BeautyBay, I bought a few and reviewed them for you. I fell in love and decided to fill up the rest of my palette. Now, a few months later, I thought it would be fun to tell you about how I built my palette and show you swatches of all these beauties.

Dove Ultime Nourishment Creme Serum

Dove Ultime Nourishment Creme Serum

I love a good leave-in conditioner. My hair is dry and brittle and I simply cannot go without a good hair conditioner. It prevents my hair from looking like a Poodle just had a blow out. For yonks I used the Gliss Kur Oil Nutrive Serum spray. But then I ran out one day and decided to try this: Dove Advanced Hair Series Ultime Nourishment Supreme Creme Serum. Quite the mouthful, but I received it in a goodie bag and thought: why not?!
