Book Review // July & August 2019

book review what I read wrap up july august summer 2019

Today’s video is one in which I talk you through all of the books I read in July & August. I read 10 books in total and this was mainly caused by my summer break which happened right in the middle. And right smack in the middle of that break, we had a heat wave. There is no better way to get through a heatwave then tons of icecream and books, lots and lots of books. Here’s what I read in the months of July and August 2019.

Catrice Brow Comb Pro Micro Pen

Catrice Brow Comb Pro Micro Pen

catrice brow com pro micro pen eyebrow pencil ash blonde review swatch makeup look application

I love when Catrice releases new products and they do something I haven’t seen before. For a drugstore brand they are certainly quite adventurous in trying out new formulas, different application methods for tried and true products and sometimes even their shade range can be a bit more adventurous than let’s say a Rimmel or Max Factor. But with so much trial and error and a line that changes faster than you can keep up (well almost!), there are going to be hits and misses. What will my verdict be on the Catrice Brow Comb eyebrow pencil?

I finally got my hands on the new Essence products for fall/ winter 2019. They took a while to make their appearance in stores and there are also not that many new products to feature. That is why in today’s post there is also a bit of a surprise for you to celebrate my blog’s 9 year anniversary and my Youtube channel’s 2000 subscriber count. Here’s to 9 more years!

Essence #Insta Perfect Liquid Highlighter

Essence #Insta Perfect Liquid Highlighter

essence insta perfect liquid highlighter 10 gold addiction review swatch application makeup look

Liquid highlighter, no scratch that, liquid anything if it’s a color product is not my favorite. So when I find one that I like, of course I need to rave about it. Meet Essence’s #Insta Perfect liquid highlighter. This is the liquid highlighter that beats all liquid highlighters. I have to admit, I haven’t tried that many, but as far as liquid highlighters go this is a very easy to use, beginner friendly, foolproof liquid highlighter.

Playing with Singles // Swatch Party

playing with singles swatch party makeup eyeshadow palette review clionadh jd glow looxi beauty devinah colourpop

Let’s have a bit of fun shall we? Over the summer I decided to buy some more indie makeup in the shape of eyeshadow singles. I did an installment last February too, but today we are playing with multichromes, duo chromes and glitters by Devinah, Looxi Beauty, Clionadh, JD Glow and Colourpop. Everything that sparkles may not be gold, but a stunning eyeshadow single instead. I will be featuring these in other future content as I want to build a custom palette each month to play with. So stay tuned for that!

Colourpop Single Eyeshadows // Pt. 2

colourpop single eyeshadow palette review swatch makeup looks

Yes part 2 and this is late because I went to a concert last night and in the end just couldn’t be bothered to finish this blog post to go live at its usual time. That said, though, I still wanted to get something up today so I am writing this as I am having breakfast. I of course couldn’t withhold you from the beauty of these Colourpop shadows any longer. I already build a palette with some Colourpop singles last year, loved them and bought some more. I had a good play around with these over my summer break and today I am reviewing part 2 of my Colourpop single eyeshadows and show you 4 makeup looks I created using them.

Music of the Month // Best albums of 2019 (so far)

Music of the Month // Best albums of 2019 (so far)

Today I am doing something differently. For months I have been struggling with posting content on the the Fridays that made sense. I always had it saved for fashion posts, but as my tastes have changed I felt less and less inspired and so I started filling it with more beauty content. That also didn’t feel right. So I had a bit of a brainstorm and have decided to dub Fridays: Free for all Fridays. This means that this is the day in the week where I will not post beauty content or a video, but do something a bit differently. And I thought, what better way to change things up than to bring back my oldest passion to the blog: music!
