Bourjois Healthy Mix BB Cream

After my all time favorite BB cream was discontinued by The Body Shop, some people recommended I look into the newly released Bourjois Healthy Mix BB Cream. It took ages before I could find it in store last winter and since BB cream is a summer makeup product for me I didn’t get around to…

Bourjois Radiance Reveal concealer

When you hear some good information about a drugstore concealer that isn’t truly hyped up, then that is of course a reason to try it for yourself. That was definitely the case for the Bourjois Radiance Reveal concealer. I heard some people giving this positive reviews back when it first launched, but this mostly went…

3-in-1 lipstick review: Maybelline, MAC, Bourjois

When you buy 3 lipsticks from different brand, but they all fit the same look and feel, what do you do? Yes, you lump them together into one review. I did pick all of these up around the same time though, but just hadn’t gotten around to the review just yet. I bought these in…

Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation (old vs new formula)

Bourjois has reformulated their Healthy Mix foundation and I was curious to try it. The old version is one of my favorite drugstore foundations, but it is a bit too dark and yellow for me on most days. This is why I don’t reach for it all that often. The newer formula promises to be…

Bourjois Healthy Balance powder

I thought I’d take a break from all the eyeshadow reviews I’ve been doing and switch things up this week. So after my new favorite face product and some lipsticks, it’s time to look at a face powder. The Bourjois Healthy Balance powder to be precise. This powder is one that is raved about by…

30 Day Make Up Challenge #18: Extreme

For this rendition of the 30 Day Make Up Challenge, I decided to think outside of my comfort zone. I decided to pile on the make up and even though this may not be very extreme for some people, it is for me. I often only have 15 minutes, if that, when I do my…

Make up confidential tag

  *Raises hand* I hereby confess that I am a make up addict. But if you’ve been following this space, this shouldn’t come as a surprise to you. I buy, use and enjoy make up more than the average person. This has led to an extensive, yet evergrowing collection. I like to try new things,…

LOTD: Smokey blues

As I promised you two days ago: my hands were itching to create a make up look with my latest Inglot purchase. I decided to now only use all of the shades in my new palette, but also add some eyeliner and just go pretty much all out with different shades of blue. This is…

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…

My fave nail polishes for spring

Spring is in the air! That’s why I’ve been busting out my favorite spring nail polishes. I’ve been wearing blues, greens, oranges and the like. I thought I’d share the prettiness with you here. From left to right: Bourjois Tangerine Fatale, Catrice Welcome to Rosywood, Essence Walk On Air, China Glaze Turned Up Turqoise, OPI…

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…

Top 10 favorite lip products

It’s finally here! I taped this last week, but I didn’t have time to edit it. I did have some time yesterday so here it is: my 10 favorite lipglosses & lipstick including swatches. Enjoy! Products mentioned: – MAC Cremesheen glass in Richer Lusher – NARS Dolce Vita – Bourjois no. 49 Rose Pacific –…

Make up collection: lipstick

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…

Haul: Inglot, Zara & other make up, cosmetics and random stuff

I desperately needed a ton of things this time round, as I was running out of necessary products girls need every once in a while (usually once a month, ahem). I also wanted to go to Amsterdam to pay the MAC Pro store a visit to buy the final eyeshadows for my palette and thus…

Fave neutral eyeshadows

I love my neutral shadows. It’s perfect for work, it looks classy and it can give you that barely there make up look. On the other hand, neutral shades are also perfect for creating smokey eyes and more dramatic looks. Neutral eyeshadows are handy to take your every day office look and upgrade it to…

Haul post: nail polish & make up

I’ve been promising to write this post for a few days now, but I finally got round to taking pictures. The lighting sucked, so I wasn’t able to do this before today. As I posted last week, I posted a few orders online and all of those have by now arrived. I also went out…
