Shop My Stash February 2020

It is the first Tuesday of the month so it is time for my Shop My Stash. What did I think of the makeup I was using last month? What makeup am I selecting to use for this new month? What lipsticks was I wearing? What eyeshadow palettes did I reach for? I will answer…

New Makeup Releases

With the start of the new month, we have to start about some new makeup releases again. And just when you think you have covered most of what is coming out, Urban Decay drops a ball and announces a new palette as you are editing your video. So yes, that will be mentioned in next…

All Star Eyeshadow Palette

You know I love eyeshadow palettes, but what if I could build my own? What if eyeshadows were players to select to play together in a sport’s team? Which ones would play together well? What color story would I go for? How would it all work together? With just one shadow per palette to pick,…

Creating Fantasy Palettes

If I had to pick a favorite makeup item, then you know it would be eyeshadow. Up to 2019, I was mainly focusing on buying stand alone palettes. But last year I wanted to try more indie brands and a lot of their shadow is only available as single pans. So I became more focused…

GRWM: New Bits, Loves & Staples

As you may know, I try to do a get ready with me video once a month. Usually I select some of my single eyeshadow to use, but this month I thought we could do it differently. I wanted to update you on some products that are in my shop my stash, some new products…

Best Neutral Eyeshadow Palettes

Let’s talk about my favorite thing on the planet, shall we? Yes, we’re doing another eyeshadow palette video. Because I love palettes. I love neutral palettes and in January of 2020 it is all that I have been using. Time for an overview! So this video is my top 15 favorite neutral palettes that are…

Beauty Consumer Tag

A very popular tag that has been going round is the Beauty Consumer Tag. All about your makeup spending habits and why you decide to purchase something or not. I thought it would be fun to do. So if you are curious how much I spend on makeup in a given year and why and…

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…

My Blue/ Green/ Purple Palette

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…

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….

Let’s kick off new year with a bang and review some eyeshadow palettes shall we? I spent the past few months trying out 10 different eyeshadow palettes again and in today’s video I will be giving you my full review. I show swatches for each palette and at least one (but usually more) makeup looks…

3 Looks 1 Palette // Tarte Tartelette In Bloom

Thursday = video time and I realized I hadn’t done a 3 looks 1 palette in a while. These videos just take a bit of time to film and organize and I just hadn’t had the time. Today’s video features the Tarte Tartelette In Bloom eyeshadow palette. It is one of my favorite neutral, everyday…

It’s the first Tuesday of the year, so time for another Shop My Stash. And I have a surprise for you. For the first time ever, I am actually taking you inside my makeup drawer to select the products for this month together. The reason why I am finally doing that is because I got…

New Makeup Releases // Jan 2020

2019 Makeup Empties

Happy New Year! To kick off the new year, I am starting with a look back on 2019. Because last year I saved up every single makeup products I used up. I used to just show my makeup empties in my regular beauty empties videos/ blog posts, but I thought it would be cool how…

2019 Favorites // Lips

Black Friday Haul

We’re nearing Christmas steadily but I still hadn’t shown you my Black Friday Haul. Because I simply hadn’t received all my orders yet. I finally got my last order in yesterday and so I sat down instantly and filmed my haul. And I have a bit of a surprise for you at the end so…

If I Could Keep Only 10 Eyeshadow Palettes

Ah I’m back! I’ve been missing a few uploads this week as Christmas Break is nearing and life always gets a bit hectic if you work in education and you’re close to a major break. So I cannot guarantee regular uploads for the rest of this week as I am essentially pooped and just can’t…

Tag Tuesday // 2019 Makeup Releases & 2020 Predictions

Since we’re nearing the end of the year, I thought it would be fun to do some content to wrap up 2019. I knew I wanted to talk about my makeup goals & wishes for the new year and then I spotted Angelica Nyqvist do a tag to look back on the old year and…

Empty Products // December 2019

Today it is time for a video that is long overdue. Because I haven’t done an empty products video in months. I just wasn’t using up much at all and then I used up everything at once. Is that just me or does this happen for more people? In any case, I used up quite…

Essence vs Catrice Primer Battle

If you watched my Catrice & Essence fall/ winter 2019 haul updated, you’ll know that I hadn’t tried these two primers too much yet. So what better way to try them than do it together with you? Live. On Camera! So that is what we’re doing in today’s video: try out both primers on my…

Benefit Hello Happy Flawless Brightening vs Soft Blur foundation

In today’s video I am trying something new! I bought two mini foundations by Benefit over the summer. They revamped their foundation line and rebranded it to be called Hello Happy. Last year they already launched the Soft Blur: a lightweight blurring foundation that I was very interested in. Then when I was in Sephora…

Catrice & Essence Fall/ Winter 2019 Collection Update

It is time for an update. An update on the Catrice and Essence Fall/ Winter 2019 collection. I tried both of these when they came out over the summer, but that was of course just a first impression. By now I have tried everything a bit more and while full reviews may be pending, I…

Fall Skincare Update + New In

We’re in the midst of fall so that means it is time to review my skincare routine. For two reasons: my skin needs are different from the summer time and I have been super lazy when it comes to my skincare. So it is time to get back into the swing of things. I also…

Focallure Review // 3 Palette Review

Today’s video is a special one. This is a video on a new to me makeup brand: Focallure. This Chinese makeup brand contacted me whether they could send me some products to try and for me to do a video on it. Since I already featured one of their palettes in one of my Buy…

Cult Palettes I Don’t Own

In today’s video I thought we could chat about some popular eyeshadow palette that everyone seems to have apart from me. There are so many cult favorite palettes that get hyped up and while that is meant to make you want to buy a product, it does not always have that effect. In the case…

Tag Tuesday // The Boujee Guru Tag

It’s Tuesday!! Which mean it is time for this month’s Tag Tuesday. One tag I saw going around that I loved was The Boujee Guru Tag. When you are ‘boujee’ it means that you prefer expensive products over more affordable ones. What you prefer does not only depend on what you like, but of course…

Makeup Basics // Expiration Dates

In today’s video I get a little bit ranty about makeup expiration dates. I see so many people chucking perfectly fine makeup products that have ‘expired’. So I decided to do this video about expiration dates and I how I go about it. I have quite some older products in my collection that I am…

Ranking Face Palettes

A video I promised to do ages ago, but only now end up doing is the ranking of my face palette collection. I have quite a few, but the thing is: I never wear them! I mostly use them whenever I travel but I don’t travel enough to really have a use for this many….
