A bit of an eyeshadow palette haul

This was supposed to be a video about new makeup releases. But given everything that’s going on, I am not actively hunting down new makeup products. Instead, I thought I could show you what I actually decided to buy in recent months.

Good Molecules Cleansing Balm review

Have you tried cleansing balms before? I had but had never found one I liked, until I found the Good Molecules Instant Cleansing Balm. This is the review.

GRWM // Shop My Stash March 2020

It is time for my monthly get ready with me using my Shop My Stash products of the month. There are some staples here as well as some products I tried for the first time this month.

Ciaté Blush Matchmaker review

For my March Shop My Stash I selected a few new products to try and by now I have tried them enough to review them. One of those items was the Ciaté blush in Matchmaker. In this review I am showing you the blush in all its glory, including swatches and the application.

Makeup Declutter 2020 // Eye Products

Today’s video is the last of my 2020 makeup declutter. The last category we will be going through is eye products. Think single shadow, mascara, glitters, liners and brows.

Spring/ Summer 2020 Fashion Trends

In today’s blog post I thought we could discuss my 10 favorite spring/ summer 2020 fashion trends. I definitely pick and choose when it comes to the different trends that are reigning every season and these are mine!

Shoe Collection

It is no secret that I am a bit of a shoe-a-holic. Before I became a makeup junkie, I was a shoe junkie and it never really went away. So I decided to film my entire shoe collection for you. It was the first video I ever uploaded on my Youtube channel and it is…

Kiko Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick review

In this review we have a look at three shades from the Kiko Velvet Passion Matte lipstick line. It features swatches, lipswatches and a full face look for each lipstick.

Full Face of Colourpop

In which I apply a full face makeup look using as many Colourpop products as I possibly can. I hope you enjoy!

Lip Declutter 2020

In which we declutter my lipstick collection and we get rid of 80+ products!

Essence Spring/ Summer 2020

As long as we had to wait for the new Catrice products, that’s how quickly we got the new Essence products. There aren’t that many, but what is there had me excited. There is a new range of blushes, a tinted primer, a new loose powder, single eyeshadows, a full range of liquid lipsticks and…

Peripera Corrector (Korean Makeup)

If there is one area of the makeup world that I was intrigued by but also found mindboggling it was K-Beauty. Korean makeup follows a completely different aesthetic from the one I am used to in my Western oriented world. However, I kept hearing great things about their skincare and makeup products and so I…

Cheek Product Declutter

If you have been watching this space you’ll know I am posting a decluttering series on Sundays throughout the month of March. Call it spring cleaning, call it just a much needed purge: I was due a massive declutter of my entire collection as it stands and I think that in cheek products I had…

Colourpop The Fame eyeshadow palette

If you saw my recent eyeshadow palette declutter than my doing this review may come as a surprise. But I believe that even if I am not a huge fan of a product, I should still review it. The Colourpop The Fame palette is one I have owned for a while now but that I…

It’s the little things…

… that matter most! I was definitely reminded of that these past few weeks. With COVID-19 making its rounds in The Netherlands now too, it definitely helps putting things into perspective. What exactly? That we should appreciate what we have, that life can be more simple if we choose too and that stressing out about…

Catrice Full Satin lipstick – Review & Lip Swatches

Today’s review is a special one: it is a double whammy! What does that mean? I have combined a video in which I apply these new Catrice Full Satin lipsticks on my lips with close up pictures and a full review here on the blog. So you can watch the video if you would like…

Catrice Poreless Perfection Mousse foundation

Since the new Catrice products have been released I have been trying them out as much as I can. You will have seen me select the new Catrice Poreless Perfection Mousse foundation as part of my Shop My Stash. So I have been using this daily for more than a week to get a good…

Beauty Brand Tag

In today’s tag video I thought we could do quite a recent tag that I saw several of my favorite Youtubers do. So I decided to do it too! And I think I have some interesting answers to share with you. It is definitely a chatty video and a bit of a ranty one, so…

Essence Hydrating & Perfecting primer

Currently in my shop my stash: the Essence primer I am reviewing for you today. I generally like Essence and Catrice primers that come in these little bottles. Catrice has been doing them for the longest time and I have liked every single one of them. Now that Essence does one too, I was of…

Base Makeup Declutter

It is another week in which I declutter my makeup collection. I did my eyeshadow palette collection last week and this week we are doing base makeup. This means everything that I would use to get my makeup look started. So think foundation, concealer, powder, primer and setting sprays. Since I am less attached to…

February Book Videos

Welcome to this month’s book blog post! I was unable to do one last week as I had planned as I was missing a video as I was completely knackered and had no energy to film. So I decided to skip a week, film my wrap up over the weekend and post my overview of…

New Makeup Releases // March 2020

For a few months now I have been kicking off the month with an overview of some new makeup releases. As I am a Youtube and Blogger who receives little to no PR (by choice btw), I tend to carefully select the products I decide to buy. And I make you part of that selection…

Catrice Instant Awake concealer

If you have been keeping up with my recent videos, then you will have seen me do another new Catrice video. They finally released their spring/ summer 2020 collection and I have been trying out the products some more. You may have seen me selecting their new Instant Awake concealer as part of my shop…

Shop My Stash // March 2020

We have hit up a new month and you know what that means in this blogosphere: it is shop my stash time! I have had a full month of using makeup again which means I can update you on some of these, or I will have posted fully detailed reviews of these products in the…

The Balm Balm Beach blush

In February’s Shop My Stash I selected a blush that I knew I would love but that, due to just having so many blushes in my collection, went a little bit forgotten. I think I have owned this for 2 years. No kidding. And this was my first time truly giving it a good shot….

Eyeshadow Palette Declutter 2020

It is time. Time for another declutter. I declutter my makeup collection once a year as I feel my drawers begin to overflow and it is just time to get rid of things as my preferences shift and I am stuck with a bunch of super old products that I never use anymore. We are…

Zoeva Eye See eyeshadow palette

For this week’s Shadow Saturday we will be having a closer look at one of my favorite eyeshadow brands: Zoeva. They do some stunning palettes and are one of the most underrated brands in the beauty world. They are a German based brand and therefore were ignored by a large part of the beauty community…

GRWM: February 2020

This year I’ve decided to use the products from my monthly shop my stash videos in a get ready with me. That way I can show you how the products go on and give you my quick review of the product too. I always try to write a more detailed review on here too for…

Nabla Skin Glazing highlighter

This is the second Nabla review I am posting in a week’s time, but I just so happen to be testing out a few of their products. I put their Skin Glazing highlighter in my Shop My Stash, so it is time to update you how I feel about this highlighter. I have been using…

Top 10 Favorite Brushes

Do we talk enough about brushes? That is what I wondered the other day when I wanted to film but had no idea what to film. I had lots of plans but most of them too time consuming for a quick Tuesday video. My conclusion was that no: we, the content creators in the makeup…

Hourglass Vanish Stick foundation

The foundation currently in my Shop My Stash? Alongside the It Cosmetics CC cream I decided to finally put the Hourglass Vanish Stick foundation to the test. This is a foundation I have owned for some months, but I knew it would not be great for the summer time. Now that it is the winter…

Catrice Spring/ Summer 2020

Yay! It is finally here! The long-awaited Catrice Spring/ Summer 2020 update is now in stores and I picked up some products again to try. This is by now a solid tradition on my blog and Youtube channel. In case you are not aware, Catrice updates their makeup line every 6 months. They take out…

Nabla Secret eyeshadow palette

Nabla is an Italian indie brand that I have been loving in recent years. Especially their eyeshadows have been some of my favorites. I bought a bunch of their singles to put into my custom Blue/ Green/ Purple palette and loved them. However, their palettes are also great as I already stated in my review…

What I Wore #13

From time to time I like documenting my outfits and recently I took quite some pictures again. And I like piling it together and see the patterns. This What I Wore is featured around two things: blazers and rewearing items. I figured it could be fun to show you how wearing the same piece in…

Ranking Too Faced Eyeshadow Palettes

Remember my love for eyeshadow palettes? Time for another eyeshadow palette video then. This time we are ranking my Too Faced eyeshadow palettes. I own 7 of them in total, most of them in the tin packaging. From the OG Chocolate Bar, to the hyped up Sweet Peach and everything in between: Can you guess…

Glossier Stretch concealer

If you saw my New York vlog and/or haul, you may remember that I visited the Glossier showroom in Soho during my trip. By now I am slowly but surely trying out the products and one of the products I put into this month’s Shop My Stash was the Glossier Stretch concealer. I had used…

Winter Skincare Routine

You may know that I am quite diligent in my skincare use. I rotate products out when I use them up as I feel that changing up my skincare too much isn’t great for my skin. So once every season I tend to update you on the products I am using and how I feel…

ELF Swirl Foundation Brush

Are we not always looking for affordable makeup brushes? I certainly am! Some of my favorite brands to buy brushes from are Zoeva and Sigma, but those can still be on the more expensive side of things. So at times I love looking at brushes by drugstore brands. After my favorite brush for primer by…

Best Powders for Dry Skin

Shall we talk about a boring topic today? I can’t help it: face powder isn’t exactly the most exciting product to talk about. But still a good face powder can make all the difference. It helps to set your makeup, mattifies your skin and prolongs the wear time tremendously. However, if you have dry skin…

Ace Beauté Slice of Paradise eyeshadow palette

Hi there! I was feeling something fun and bright this week. We have had such gloomy weather with lots of stormy weather, rain and just dark dreary days. So what do you do to combat the winter blues? We wear rainbow colors! And what better thing to do than to bust out a rainbow eyeshadow…

What I Eat…

That’s right! Time for an oldie but a goodie here on the blog: a what I eat blog post. I haven’t done one of these in YEARS! A few years ago I had some stomach issues and I found that what I ate had a lot to do with how I was feeling and so…

Winter & Sales Fashion Haul

It is February, most of the winter sales are over and in the past few months I bought some fashion items. Some of them were on sale, some of them were not, but I was really enjoying some of the items I found and so I figured I would share them with you. I have…

Benefit Gold Rush mini blush

My favorite all time blush? Benefit’s Coralista boxed blush. I have had it for years, I have since hit pan, and I reach for it all the time over the summer. The summer mostly as it is a bit too much for my daily makeup. Then I spotted the Gold Rush blush when I was…

Cool Toned Eyeshadow palette collection

Eyeshadow palettes: you know I love them. Some of my favorites are cool toned eyeshadow palettes. So I have quite of few of them. And since I feel that the makeup industry should create more cool toned palettes, I felt I would do a video dedicated to just my cool toned eyeshadow palettes. Hopefully, this…
