Essence Hydrating & Perfecting primer

Currently in my shop my stash: the Essence primer I am reviewing for you today. I generally like Essence and Catrice primers that come in these little bottles. Catrice has been doing them for the longest time and I have liked every single one of them. Now that Essence does one too, I was of…

Base Makeup Declutter

It is another week in which I declutter my makeup collection. I did my eyeshadow palette collection last week and this week we are doing base makeup. This means everything that I would use to get my makeup look started. So think foundation, concealer, powder, primer and setting sprays. Since I am less attached to…

2019 Favorites // Base Products

We only have a few days left in 2019 so time to gather my thoughts and my favorites and chat to you about them. In total I have 4 videos for you and today we are kicking things off with my favorite base products of the year. And I do apologize for the lack of…

Becca First Light Priming Filter

Let’s try out a high end primer for a change shall we? Usually I swear by drugstore primers. They are a product I go through quickly and I do not see much of a difference between my more high end and more affordable primers. For instance, one of my favorites is the Catrice Fresh It…

Essence vs Catrice Primer Battle

If you watched my Catrice & Essence fall/ winter 2019 haul updated, you’ll know that I hadn’t tried these two primers too much yet. So what better way to try them than do it together with you? Live. On Camera! So that is what we’re doing in today’s video: try out both primers on my…

Catrice Tensational Primer

In the new Catrice line for Fall/ Winter 2019 they have included a new primer. Catrice changes up their line often and I sometimes feel like I have just finished reviewing the previous changes by the time a new product line rolls around. This primer was no different and it is not necessarily the case…

Essence You Better Work primer

Last Monday I reviewed the You Better Work Fixing Spray and that wasn’t working out too well for me as it gave me an allergic reaction. However that doesn’t mean that the product itself is bad per se as it got the job done just fine in the end. The primer from the same line…

Catrice Hydrating Prime & Care spray

Catrice keeps on releasing new products and one of those newer products is a line of makeup primer sprays. There is a line of Prime and Fine makeup fixing sprays, but primer sprays was something the brand did not yet have. This primer spray is one of two: the other is an energizing spray. Since…

Catrice HD Active Performance primer

Whenever Catrice launches a new primer, I’m all ears, because I generally really like them. They are not only super affordable, but I also think they work really well. I love their hydrating primer for instance as well as their light correcting serum primer. This new primer promises to be water and sweatproof and perfect…

Catrice Light Correcting Serum Primer Morning Glow

One of my favorite affordable primers? The Catrice Light Correcting Serum Primer. Catrice are fairly good at doing primers to begin with. I also love their hydrating primer, so when I saw them doing a new shade in one of my favorite primer formulas, you know I had to try it. This claims to be…

Catrice Under Eye Primer

One of the most weird, but possibly innovative new products by Catrice in their Spring/ Summer 2019 line may very well be this one. This is one of those products that if it works well makes you think: why didn’t anything think of this before? However, it could also be a huge gimmick. Let’s test…

Makeup Declutter 2019 | Powders, Primers & Setting Sprays

It’s Sunday today and I have another decluttering video for you. Today we’ll be finishing off the base products with powders, primers and setting sprays. I don’t have too many in each category, so that is why I am grouping those together. After this, we still have blush, bronzer, highlighter and face palettes left, so…

NYX Hydra Touch Primer

Now that I am trying more and more primers, I am slowly but surely figuring out what I like my primers to be. I want them to be hydrating. I want them to make my makeup last and I want them to be preferably affordable. After using up the Catrice Fresh it Up primer, which…

Essence Prime + Studio Glow Boosting primer

A good affordable primer is hard to come by and so whenever I find one that sounds interesting I always want to give them a try. For their new fall/ winter 2018 make up line, Essence released three different ones and I decided to pick up one. Meet the Essence Prime + Studio Glow Boosting…

Smashbox Primerizer

Primer. I am still on the fence on which one I love the most. So I just keep trying different ones till I have a good feel for some of the offerings on the market. A recent primer release that I was looking forward to trying was the Smashbox Primerizer. I heard so many people…

Catrice Eye Foundation eyeshadow primer

I haven’t had much luck trying super affordable eyeshadow primers. I have used some, one even by Catrice, and none of them did the trick for me. The most successful eyeshadow primer I’ve tried at the most affordable price point is the Milani eyeshadow primer. But now there is a new contender. Catrice have released…

Catrice Fresh It Up Aqua Fresh Hydro Primer

When I did my video giving you an overview of what is new from Catrice for fall 2018, quite a few people seemed interested in one of the new primers. For fall 2018, Catrice have come out with several new primers and one of them is a hydrating primer. So far, hydrating primers are my…

Essence primer & setting sprays

Where yesterday was all about face sprays in the skincare range, today’s blog post is all about the review of some Essence makeup sprays. Because where sprays can be part of your skincare routine, they can also be part of your makeup routine. I have some experience with setting sprays, but a primer spray was…

Too Faced Hangover RX primer

After trying this for weeks on end, I finally feel ready to review this product. In terms of face primer, I do not have too much experience, but that also means that I am going into these kind of products quite blindly. I don’t have a strong preference for a primer yet and all I…

ELF Hydrating Primer

One makeup product that I introduced to my makeup routine in 2017 is primer. I was someone who never used primer before. With my dry skin, a primer just never really seemed like a product I would need. Until I discovered the concept of a hydrating primer. Because my skin could always do with more…

Milani eyeshadow primer

Eyeshadow primer is a makeup lovers dream. It makes sure your eyeshadow stays put and makes the color payoff more vibrant. Before I started watching youtube videos I had never even heard of it. It’s really one of those products that has slowly made its way onto the consumer market with the Urban Decay and…

Essence Fresh & Fit Primer

When I spotted that Essence would be bringing out a primer, I was intrigued. 2017 has really been the year of the primer for me so far. I just wanted to try a few and it seems to be a makeup item that is becoming more and more popular too. That is of course why…

Catrice Light Correcting serum primer

The first product from Catrice’s new range that I would like to review for you is the Light Correcting Serum Primer. Why? Because next to the face palette it’s the product that intrigued me most. I went on a major primer kick this year. Before I was quite skeptical of primers, but I can see…

Zechsal Pure Magnesium Skin Balm

This year, I’ve decided I want to try some more primers. My face isn’t overly oily and make up staying on my face isn’t usually something I have to deal with, but in the summer time, when temperatures rise, my skin gets oilier and it’s good to have a product to help combat the shine…

Essence I <3 Colour Intensifying eyeshadow base

A necessary product in any make up routine is an eyeshadow base. That is, if you like wearing eyeshadow. Which I do. Tremendously so. However, I also have fairly oily eyelids. So a good eyeshadow primer is a must have for me. My favorites? The Urban Decay Primer Potion and Too Faced Shadow Insurance. But…
