Benefit Gold Rush mini blush

My favorite all time blush? Benefit’s Coralista boxed blush. I have had it for years, I have since hit pan, and I reach for it all the time over the summer. The summer mostly as it is a bit too much for my daily makeup. Then I spotted the Gold Rush blush when I was…

Benefit Cookie highlighter

My current highlighter of choice? The Benefit Cookie highlighter. I bought this when I was in New York and immediately put it to good use. I made it part of my November Shop My Stash and loved it so much that I continued it into my December Shop My Stash. So for me to keep…

Benefit Gimme Brow

When you say brows, there are only two brands that really made a name for themselves in the beauty world. On the one hand we have Anastasia Beverly Hills and on the other there is Benefit. I haven’t tried much by ABH: the brand just doesn’t appeal to me and I have a tendency to…

Benefit Dandelion Twinkle & Hoola Lite

When two cult makeup products are released in new renditions, all of the makeup loving world of course has to jump on that bandwagon. And so did I. Benefits Dandelion blush and Hoola bronzer are some infamous makeup products that are loved by many. So when they released the first as a highlight and the…

Benefit Cheeky Party Blushing Beauty Kit

When I spotted the Benefit Christmas make up kits, I was instantly intrigued. I knew they did one for cheeks last year but I didn’t see it around anywhere in Holland. But since this year, Benefit is now being sold in my home town, which makes the brand a lot more accessible. I had a…

Make Up Collection: Single Eyeshadows & Pigments

I thought it would be time for me to show you another part of my make up collection. There are only a few parts left and then, in the course of roughly one year, I will have shown you my entire make up collection in a bit more detail. Today I will show you my…

Make up collection: small eyeshadow palettes

Another part of my make up stash: my small eyeshadow palettes. Next to nail polish, eyeshadow is quite possibly my favorite make up related item. So I have tons. I already showed you my MAC eyeshadow palette a while ago, and today it’s time for more eyeshadow! I will be showing you my smaller eyeshadow…

Make Up Collection: Blushes

I already showed you all of my lip products in a few separate posts, here, here and here. This time we’ll move up the face and it’s time for blushes. Here are the ones I have, I will indicate which ones are my favorites as we go along. ***Warning*** This post is picture heavy. I’m…

Blogsale

I decided it would be time to sell some of my make up. Buying make up is a bit hit or miss sometimes and so I do have a couple of things lying about that I used only once or twice, or which I swatched and it just turned out it wasn’t right for me….

Another day, another part of my make up collection. This time it’s lipstick that I will be showing you. Later this week I will post something on my favorite lipsticks & glosses including swatches. I may do this in a video. Not sure yet though. Might as well post pictures. Anywho, enough babbling. Let’s get…

Make up collection: lipgloss

Despite being sick I’ve decided to take a few pictures of my lipglosses. I actually wanted to do this in a video and swatch a few on my hand (my favorites), but I will do that during my vacation when I’ve got more time and am looking and feeling better again. The first three pictures…

MAC Paint Pots vs Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows

I love MAC paint pots. I also love Benefit creaseless cream shadows. Both products are pretty similar: you can use them as eye shadows, but they also function as bases underneath other (powder) eye shadows. They come in a range of colors and both have creamy textures. But which one is the best? Get ready…

Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow & Liner

When I went to London, shopping for make up was high on my list. There are a ton of things around that you can’t get in the Netherlands, or things are simply cheaper. The latter was the case for Benefit products, which is why I decided to stock up on a few items I had…

Haul post: MAC, Benefit, Lush, Zara & Bershka

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I went on a bit of a shopping spree yesterday. I had to go to The Hague to visit my allergy doctor for another shot to get rid of my hayfever and I desperately wanted to go to MAC. Since Leiden doesn’t have one, I decided…
