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.

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.

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?!

I love to travel and one thing I love to look for when I am traveling are make up and beauty products. My main goal is of course to find items that are difficult or impossible to get where I live. Also if I can get products a lot cheaper, then buying something while traveling can be a good idea. Most of my travels have taken me to the US and the UK and that’s why I know those countries best in terms of beauty shopping. These are my tips.

Peachy blush tones for spring are some of my favorites. Where I wear little to no peach blushes in the winter time and opt for dusty pinks instead, I bust out the peach blush in full throttle every year come spring time. Whether I opt for Milani Luminoso, MAC’s Fresh Honey, or my Kiko Apricot blush, peach is where it is at. When I spotted Catrice doing a stunning peach shade too, I picked it up and tried it out.

For spring 2017 Essence did not only renew its standard line, but they also released a brand new limited edition. When I spotted it in store, I figured it would be nice to try some products out. My interest was piqued mostly by the nail effect pigments, which can transform your average polish into a (duo)chrome extravaganza. However, I of course cannot say no to a rainbow highlighter and a pretty eyeshadow palette either. This is the review.
