One of my goals for 2019: try more single eyeshadows. So I spent the past few months buying some new ones and that also made me want to reorganize some of my older single shadows. I figured I would film it all and talk you through how I (re)organize my MAC and Inglot shadows as well as some new in Colourpop and indie brand Sidney Grace. Let’s do this!

MAC Extra Dimension highlighter

When I started hearing good stories about the MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinishes I knew I wanted to try one. The only problem? Which one to get. I hear great reviews on Double Gleam, Beaming Blush and Snow Frost, but I wanted to try something I didn’t own yet. I wasn’t looking for another gold or another purple duochrome. I already have those. So when I spotted Show Gold, I was instantly taken by it.

When I was in London, I finally got to Back 2 MAC some of my decluttered products. We do get MAC here, but Holland is not connected to the Back 2 MAC programme. But the UK is! So I hung on to my products for nearly a year and decided to get a free lipstick. Since I had a year to decide what I wanted to get, I was quick to decide. I decided to get an Amplified lipstick in the shade Morange.

MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder Pressed

MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder Pressed

Today’s review features an oldie but a goodie: a product that I used up, repurchased, but just never had gotten round to reviewing just yet. What can I say: it happens. I’m talking about one of my favorite powders on the make up market. I discovered the MAC Prep+Prime Transarent Finishing Powder when my Mineralized Skin Finis no longer sufficed. I had moved work in an office building with a lot of AC and my make up looked horrible after just a few hours into my workday. The problem: the powder. So I went to MAC and asked for a suggestion and this is what they came up with. Here’s why I love it enough to have given this another whirl.  MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder Pressed

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

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 London last year, but since the Maybelline and Bourjois lipsticks only made their way into our drugstores here fairly recently, I decided this was the best time to post.

I currently own 20 MAC lipsticks. That is more than enough and means I have a little bit of everything. Since I like where my MAC lipstick collection now stands, I thought it was time for me to show you how all of these shades look on. This means that without further ado, I present to you: my MAC lipstick swatch video. Please watch, my lips will be very very thankful ;-).
