I haven’t had much luck trying super affordable eyeshadow primers. I have used some, one even by Catrice, and none of them did the trick for me. The most successful eyeshadow primer I’ve tried at the most affordable price point is the Milani eyeshadow primer. But now there is a new contender. Catrice have released a new eyeshadow primer for their fall/ winter 2018 collection. Is it any good?
Time for empties! It’s been a few months since I showed you and I feel I have sooo many exciting empties for you. For one, there are many products I used up. That is not unusual for me though. I use up skincare, bodycare and haircare before moving on to the next product. Where I make the biggest dent? Makeup & perfume! I used up multiple perfumes and this is quite possibly the most makeup I ever have. Since there is so much here, I figured it would be best to split up the video. Today’s video will focus on my empty perfumes, nailcare and makeup items.

Purple eyeshadow is EVERYWHERE at the moment. If there is a new trending color in the land of makeup it is purple. From high end to budget brands: they are all putting out purple palettes. And I am not mad about that. In fact, I love it as I love a good purple eyeshadow. So much so, that I am giving away a purple palette to celebrate 8 years of blogging and reaching 1000 subs on Youtube. And it is not just any purple palette I am giving away: it is the I Heart Revolution Violet eyeshadow palette.

One of my more recent fashion revelations this year was wearing flared jeans. I used to wear them as a teenager, but always struggled as I am fairly short and flared jeans always come up fairly long. So they never fit right. Till I found a pair at Topshop and wore them tons already. I think they are also perfect for the fall time and I thought I’d show you how I would style up a pair of flared jeans.

I am so excited to be sharing today’s video with you! When Stashy quit her blog Stash Matters, she held a massive giveaway. We had been going back and forth between each other’s blogs for some time and noticed we had some items we both loved that would be hard to get for the other person. She put some of those items in her giveaway, which I entered, but we decided that if I didn’t win, we’d do a makeup swap. She’s from Canada, I’m from the Netherlands, which means we were able to exchange quite some exciting items. Here’s what she got me!
When I did my video giving you an overview of what is new from Catrice for fall 2018, quite a few people seemed interested in one of the new primers. For fall 2018, Catrice have come out with several new primers and one of them is a hydrating primer. So far, hydrating primers are my favorite with the Too Faced Hangover RX primer being the best I have tried up to now. How does Catrice’s Fresh It Up Aqua Fresh Hydro primer live up to that standard?

It has been ages since I last did a giveaway. I don’t do them too often, but I think it is time to give back. And for two reasons! On 4 September 2018, this blog, this little nook on the WWW came up on its 8th anniversary. 8 years! As if things could not get any better, I hit 1000 subscribers on Youtube last Saturday. So I felt it was time to organize a little giveaway to give back to all of you who have embarked on this journey with me and who are commenting regularly on my posts and videos.
