So if you are curious how much I spend on makeup in a given year and why and how I decide what to buy when, then this one is for you.

Revolution Pro New Neutral Lipstick in Stiletto

Revolution Pro New Neutral Lipstick in Stiletto

Ah the day I discovered red lipstick has been etched into my mind. It took some time to find a right one, but my favorite Russian Red by MAC is an oldie but a goodie. I first featured on this blog back in a 1940s inspired makeup look back in 2012!!!, so I am always looking for an update that could be as good as my OG fave. Enter a very random order from Makeup Revolution and my realization that I had never actually tried that many of their lipsticks. The result? A stunning red lipstick that has quickly made it to my top 5 favorite drugstore reds.

Full Face of ELF Cosmetics

Are you ready for today’s video? I certainly am because I have been telling you I would do a full face of ELF products in the new year and here it is. I picked up most of these products on a discount during Black Friday as I thought it would be fun to do this video. ELF is a brand that I have tried stuff from every once in a while. They are a bit hit and miss, but some of their products are raved about so much that I was curious. We can finally buy the brand in The Netherlands so I was stoked to try some of their products.

How long has it been since I last posted a fashion blog post? Let’s just say that I had other plans, but then a flu, work and the Holiday messed those up. That said, I decided to just keep on taking pictures of outfits and I ended up with 8 in total to share with you. And it is quite diverse: from dresses to jumpsuits and cozy knits to lumpy cardigans: I wore a number of outfits that I loved.

What do you do when you want a blue/ green/ purple palette but no brand is currently making one? You make one yourself! That’s exactly what I did in early 2019. By now I have played around with these shadows enough: I did multiple looks, swatched everything, used shades separately and just got a good feel for these shadows. This custom palette features shades by Nabla, Sidney Grace, Anastasia Beverly Hills and Coloured Raine. So let’s have a closer look!

Tarte Blush Natural Beauty

tarte amazonian clay blush natural beauty review swatch

For a while now, Tarte has been making some of my favorite blushes. I bought two of them a few years ago in Seduce and Achiote and I have been loving them ever since. The shade range is not my favorite, but one shade that I had been lusting after for a while is a stunning red called Natural Beauty. For a while it was more difficult to find and it seemed it had been discontinued. But for a year or so it is now back and so when I was in the US, I decided to buy it.

Perfume Collection 2020

perfume collection 2020

It’s been 1.5 years since I showed my perfume collection and there has been a massive change since then. When I first showed my collection in 2018, I was on the verge of a changeover. Prior to that video, I had been on a search for finding out what I like in terms of fragrance. I filmed the video when I felt I had found it, committed to decluttering and using up several of my perfumes. Since doing that, I have been buying some new bits and I still have a couple of OG favorites that make up my full perfume collection. So let’s have a closer look at my 2020 perfume collection.
