Maybelline City Bronzer

My current favorite bronzer? The Maybelline City bronzer! I bought this product when I visited London and was afraid it would be too dark. Why? Because the lightest shade was sold out everywhere and on my fair skin most medium to deep bronzers end up looking muddy and weird. So I was a bit skeptical…

Maybelline Dream Cushion foundation

The foundation I used in the month of May was this Dream Cushion foundation by Maybelline that I have had for nearly 2 years and wore but never reviewed. I decided to make a point of trying to use it up this month as it was on the older side and I am not sure…

Maybelline Dream Urban Cover Foundation

Are you ready for a new drugstore foundation? One that has everyone talking? Because supposedly this new Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation is the drugstore dupe for the IT Cosmetics CC cream. And you know: if us makeup lovers can get a great product for a cheaper price, then we will go after it. So…

Maybelline Master Holographic highlighter

2018 was the year in which I tried holographic highlighters. After trying Becca’s Prismatic Amethyst and loving it, I knew I had to try and find a more affordable dupe. So I made it my duty to find a cheaper alternative to one of my all time favorites. When Maybelline released their new Master Chrome…

Maybelline Matte Lip Ink | New Shades!

So a year ago I wrote a raving review about the then new Maybelline liquid lipsticks. So when new shades in the Superstay Matte Ink lipstick line were released I knew I wanted to try some more. I ended up buying these at Superdrug in the UK, but these new shades are available at select…

Maybelline Age Rewind concealer

Look who is super late to the party? Yep, that would be me. After hearing so many people rave about this concealer I finally decided to bite the bullet. Well, not really. This is the third time that I have tried this concealer. Three times! That’s perseverance. And you know what they say: three time’s…

Maybelline Master Strobing Liquid

In the summer, I tend to change up my makeup routine quite a bit. Last year around this time, I became obsessed with trying liquid highlighters. And so I acquired a few which I have been rotating in and out of my routine for a while now to test them out. One of those liquid…

Maybelline Superstay foundation

Happy New Year! It’s January 1st, which means I’m back for a new year filled with blogs on makeup, lifestyle and fashion. It was good to have a bit of a break last week, but I’m back in full swing with a brand new review of a brand new product. Maybelline just released their new…

Maybelline Lip Ink

The minute I heard about these new liquid lipsticks by Maybelline, I knew I had to grab a few once they launched over here. Of course it took a while to make it across and we get far fewer states than in the US, but these liquid lipsticks are totally worth the hype. Say hello…

Maybelline Age Rewind concealer

The infamous Maybelline Age Rewind concealer is back! Back in The Netherlands that is, because it was originally discontinued and no longer available. Which is why I had never reviewed this product, because what’s the use reviewing something that many people won’t be able to get their hands on? But now they announced via Facebook…

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…

Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless foundation

Lately I have found myself on a major foundation kick. I’ve been trying new releases left and right. Moreover, where I normally opt for a light coverage foundation, I have also been dabbling with full coverage ones. Another type of foundation I’ve been trying out is the matte foundation. So many people swear by those…

Maybelline Fit Me vs Nars Radiant Creamy concealer

There are two concealers that many in the beauty community like to compare to one another: The Maybelline Fit Me concealer and the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer. The formulas are supposed to be almost identical and with the Maybelline version only costing only a fraction of the price, it is well worth looking a bit…

Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation

Foundation was the last make up product that I added to my routine. I don’t have the world’s most terrible skin and that’s why I was always quite skeptical towards wearing foundation. Trying foundation is therefore something I do like to do, but which I don’t get round to very often. Usually when I have…

Brand Bites | Maybelline

Today’s blog post will be another video. I thought it might be fun to show you my stash in a tad more detail by talking about some of the different brands represented in my make up collection. It allows me to talk about some of my favorite make up products and brands, as well as…

3x mascara: Make Up Studio, Rimmel, Maybelline

Mascara is one of the most frequently bought make up items. Even if you’re not into make up, chances are that you are using a mascara. Since it is the number one beauty product, brands go absolutely crazy thinking up new formulas and brushes and as a consumer you’re left to wonder: which one should…

3x contour & highlight palette: W7, Catrice & Maybelline

I love doing these 3-in-1 reviews! It is a great way to show you a review of 3 similar products that are comparable and might work the same. Today it is up to contour and highlight palettes from the drugstore. These have been a standard item in many high end make up lines, but lately,…

Maybelline The Blushed Nudes eyeshadow palette

Unfortunately for us, the Dutch drugstore is always a bit behind compared to other countries. So it isn’t until now that Maybelline has decided to launch their The Blushed Nudes palette. I so happened to pick this up last summer in the States and I hadn’t reviewed it yet. I decided to put out the…

Maybelline Master Conceal concealer

I will forever be looking for the perfect concealer. It is one product I am always eager to try and test out. Foundation, I don’t care much about that. If it works it works and that’s that. What truly makes a difference in my opinion is a good concealer. That’s the product that will make…

Maybelline Color Sensational matte lipsticks

One of the products I wanted to get my hands on when I was in the US, were the Maybelline Color Sensational matte lipsticks. I heard some raves about these from US beauty gurus on Youtube and I liked the Color Sensational lipsticks I had tried in the past. So when I saw these matte…

Maybelline Color Tattoo

When it comes to beauty product favorites, the Maybelline Color Tattoos are some of my favorites. Since they were released I have gathered 9 different shades, the last of which I purchased on my trip to the US & Canada this summer. So it is about time that I write about these lovely products. Maybelline…

Maybelline Brow Drama & Brow Satin in Dark Blond

Recently Maybelline has been updating their brow product range. I already bought the Brow Drama eyebrow gel last December, but when I found the Brow Satin brow pencil and powder duo, I decided that paired together this would make for a great review. I started using the Brow Satin to replace my Soap & Glory…

Maybelline Master Precise liquid eyeliner

Happy King’s Day to all my fellow Dutchies! Today is a national holiday in The Netherlands and instead of making  a novelty King’s Day look for the occasion (I’m not really celebrating), I decided to have a normal make up review up. This time I’m rounding up my series of different liquid liners. I tried…

Maybelline Color Drama Velvet Lip Pencil

Lip pencil come lipsticks/ lip balms are one of the biggest trends in make up land in recent years. NARS do them. Clinique do them. So it was not going to be long until drugstore brands would dive into a lip pencil that works just like a lip pencil. At a much lower price point…

NOTD: Denim Blues

My new favorite nail polish shade for spring? Blue! I am loving blues in all different shades at the moment. But especially the paler, softer tones that are much more appropriate for spring. So I thought it would be time to show you a blue nail polish look. This nail polish look includes 2 different…

Maybelline Lasting Drama Black Shock 36h gel liner

Have you noticed that drugstore products get launched without as much as a whisper going round about them? That is the case for the Maybelline gel liner pen I am reviewing for you today. I found this in a German drugstore. It is yet unreleased in The Netherlands and appears to be a dupe for…

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,…

New Catrice & Essence make up

YAY for working pictures! Because that means I can show you some of the new items Essence & Catrice added to their collection. In case you didn’t know: budget brands Essence & Catrice revamp their selection every 6 months. Old products are out and new ones are in. And it just so happened to be…

Maybelline Fit Me foundation

Foundation: the worst make up product on the planet. I’ve only been using foundation since September because I had never found a foundation that actually fit me. I had bought a few, but never wore them. Mostly because the color was too dark and I didn’t want to spend a fortune buying drugstore foundations (which…

Review: The Falsies Flared Mascara

I am not one to easily change up beauty products. My skin hates most cremes to begin with and I figure: when I like something, why exchange it for something that I could potentially hate? That is why I usually stick to what I have been using for a while. With that said though, I…

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….

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: Eyeliner, lipliner & every day things

Okay peeps, so far so good. We are almost done with the first drawer of my make up stash. Up next will be eyeshadows and I have a ton of those, so stay tuned for that. Right now we’ll focus on eyeliner, lipliner and my every day things such as mascara and eyeshadow primer. Ready?…

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…

Budget Proof Make Up

This post is triggered by a comment Alison left last week on my post on Benefit Cosmetics. Benefit is indeed an expensive make up brand. No matter where you are located. Therefore, it is always a good idea to try and find cheaper alternatives. Drug store brands from around the globe often offer some very…

Review: Maybelline One by One Mascara

Not too long ago, I decided to test a bunch of mascaras. Unfortunately the mascara market is long from saturated, according to the makers, so Maybelline just recently launched a new one: the Volume Express One by One Mascara. Here’s what Maybelline says: Finally, bold volume without any of the bulk. • Patented Lash Catcher™…

Review: Maybelline Define-a-lash volume mascara

Mascara no. 2 from my little mascara try out is the Maybelline Define-a-Lash volume mascara. Thank God this one worked so much better for me than last week’s. From Maybelline’s website: ZERO-CLUMP VOLUME defined like never before SHAPED-TO-THE-LASH BRUSH captures and plumps each lash And this is SO TRUE! What a relief it was to…

Review: Maybelline Colossal Mascara

Last week I told I’d review a few drug store mascaras. Here’s the first one: Maybelline Colossal mascara in waterproof black. Here’s what Maybelline says about this mascara on their website: COLOSSAL LASHES IN JUST ONE COAT! CREATES 9X THE VOLUME, instantly COLLAGEN FORMULA  + MEGA BRUSH plumps lashes Let me just start off by…

What’s the Best Mascara?

When it comes to beauty products, the most impossible thing to find is a good mascara. I’ve been using the same one for a year now, but it is so expensive. I’ve never really tried any of the drug store ones and I keep hearing that they are good. Since I don’t have the faintest…
