Focallure Review // 3 Palette Review

Today’s video is a special one. This is a video on a new to me makeup brand: Focallure. This Chinese makeup brand contacted me whether they could send me some products to try and for me to do a video on it. Since I already featured one of their palettes in one of my Buy…

Juvia’s Place The Festival palette

If there is one brand that can guarantee a good, colorful eyeshadow palette, it would be Juvia’s Place. This affordable brand does some great palettes and their color stories are always unique. I already reviewed The Magic, The Zulu and The Saharan palettes and did three looks with The Tribe. Today we will be having…

Dior Backstage Face & Body foundation

Today we are having a closer look at a not so new foundation, but one that I excited for nonetheless. I bought this last year just after it launched, but I hadn’t really given it a proper try just yet. So last month I committed to giving this a good try. It came with me…

Catrice Luminice Highlight & Blush palette

Today’s review is a blush & highlighter palette by Catrice. If you know me, then you know that face palettes aren’t really my forte. Many brands put them out and I own quite a few, but I never really end up wearing them much. Still, whenever Catrice comes out with new products I want to…

Too Faced Fruit Cocktail Blush Duo

When it comes to blush I have tried quite a few by Too Faced. My favorite formula they have done to date is their Love Flush blushes which I tried and reviewed in a stunning watermelon shade: How Deep Is Your Love. As part of their Tutti Frutti collection, Too Faced launched their Fruit Cocktail…

Essence Disney Princess Collection

I am super excited for today’s video! It is a bit late perhaps, but when Essence teams up with Disney to do a limited edition Disney Princess collection including eyeshadow palettes, highlighters and brushes then of course I have to check it out. It was tricky to get my hands on this stuff, but luckily…

NARS Forte de France highlighter

What do you do when one of your favorite highlighters of 2018 hasn’t seen much use, let alone a review? Well, you bust it out in a shop my stash of course and you use it again. That’s exactly what happened to me and NARS’ Forte De France highlighter. After trying and loving their Albatross…

Milani Soft & Sultry

One drugstore brand that does great eyeshadow? Milani. Previously I reviewed their Earthy Elements palette and loved it. Lately, the brand has been changing their eyeshadow range and are now doing 12 pan square palettes that are a bit more pricey, but that took the beauty community by storm. Because even though they are a…

Urban Decay After Dark lipstick

Talking about a long overdue review! I bought this lipstick so long ago that by now Urban Decay still sells this, but in very different packaging. Because since buying this, UD released their Vice Lipstick line. Luckily for me, the shade After Dark from their Revolution Matte lipstick range is still available as part of…

L’Oreal More Than Concealer

Let’s do a review that I am truly excited for. You know how much I like trying different concealers and when I found the new L’Oreal More Than Concealer I had high hopes for how it might work. I love the newest infallible foundation and this seems to have been launched as the accompanying concealer….

H&M Beauty Blush | Vintage Red

When I love a blush formula I love to own multiples. I already owned and loved two H&M Beauty blushes: Cantaloupe and Tawny Peach. I reviewed them last year and have been raving about these blushes for years. Not enough people are talking about H&M makeup in general and these blushes in particular. They are…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism

It’s Shadow Saturday again and today I am bringing you a review of a palette that I think is super fall appropriate. The palette in question? Yup, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism eyeshadow palette. I still have to review my Subculture one too, but when I was thinking of which one to do first, I…

The Ordinary Rose Hip Seed Oil

I feel it’s been some time since I last reviewed a skincare product and that’s easily explained: I just wasn’t trying anything new. With skincare I love using up what I have before opening up a new product. Not only is that more sustainable, it also means the product cannot expire before you can use…

10 Recent Eyeshadow Palettes

In my August eyeshadow palette haul, I showed you bunch of new eyeshadow palettes I was going to put to the test. By now, I have tried most of them and so I thought it was time to update you on my thoughts on some of them. In today’s video I am therefore reviewing 10…

MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick

When is the last time you were excited about a new MAC release? I remember when MAC was the be all and end all of all makeup releases who were always innovative and THE brand to try. I think MAC is still a brand that does some interesting things, but their big hits have become…

Essence The Highlighter

You may have already seen me wearing this highlighter in some of the makeup looks in my videos, but the new Essence highlighter definitely warrants a full review. Naturally it is an affordable products that packs a true punch and that is surprisingly good, especially considering the cost. So of course, when a product is…

Zoeva Spice of Life eyeshadow palette

We’re in the midst of fall, so what better palette to review than the Zoeva Spice of Life eyeshadow palette? This palette is part of the chocolate range that Zoeva do and since I love those, it was only natural that I would try this one too. The minute I spotted this, I knew this…

Colourpop No Filter foundation

In this month’s shop my stash I decided to select the Colourpop No Filter foundation as one of two foundations to use this month. Earlier this year I already reviewed the accompanying concealer in this line. I liked it, but it emphasized my lines a bit because it has a drier, more matte finish. So…

The Balm Take Home The Bronze bronzer

Do you know what was one makeup product that surprised me? The one I am reviewing for you today: The Balm’s Take Home The Bronze. A good bronzer was difficult to find for me for a long time. Most were too orange, too muddy or just too dark. Even some cult favorites just didn’t work…

Catrice & Essence Royal Party Sister Love Limited Edition

It’s finally here! The longawaited Catrice & Essence limited edition Royal Party/ Sister Love has arrived in stores and I lucked out and found an untouched display and was able to pick up all the palettes I wanted from this collection. This limited edition features 14 eye and face palettes of which I picked up…

Make Up Revolution Conceal & Hydrate Foundation & Concealer

You know I love a good drugstore product and if there is one brand I like trying things out from it would be Make Up Revolution. Their eyeshadow palettes for one, but after trying their Conceal & Define concealer and that instantly going to the top of my concealer favorites’ list, I knew I had…

Catrice Glowing Blush Box

Catrice has come out with some new blushes and that is good news because generally speaking Catrice blushes are really good quality. They have released many renditions in the past years since they update their line every 6 months. Some of my favorites? The long since discontinued Illuminating Blushes. By now, Catrice has re-released similar…

Catrice The Spicy Rust eyeshadow palette

For palette Saturday I decided to keep it affordable this week. Catrice releases these little clear palettes every time they revamp their line and for Fall/ Winter 2019 they have released a very warm toned rendition. The Spicy Rust collection fits well in Catrice’s line up of palettes and it is also perfect for fall….

Essence This Is Me Nude Lipsticks

This video is one I am doing on request. I have been asked to try the Essence This Is Me Nude lipsticks for some time now and I decided to do a dedicated video to the entire line. This line features 8 lipsticks that retail for €2.39 each. That is not only super affordable, but…

Ofra Blissful highlighter

In my current shop my stash I pulled in a highlighter that I had in my stash for months but that I hadn’t yet tried. I am talking about Ofra’s Blisfful. After trying their OG favorite Rodeo Drive and loving it, I decided I needed more Ofra highlighters in my life. Then Beauty Bay did…

Essence Crystal Power eyeshadow palette

The small, but curated Essence Fall/ Winter update contains some product in the new Crystal Power line. When I bought the products not all of them were available just yet, but of the ones I got, I was of course most curious for the eyeshadow palette. When I tried it in my first impression’s video…

7 Cult Loose Powders | Best for Dry Skin?

Today’s the day! I am finally posting my collective comparison and review of 7 loose powders with a solid cult status in the beauty community. I have been mentioning wanting to do this video for such a long time and I finally got around to it. I spent the past 1.5 years purchasing and trying…

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…

Urban Decay Stay Naked Foundation & Concealer

We are kicking off the week with a 2-in-1 review of the new Urban Decay Stay Naked foundation and concealer. These products created some hype when they first launched last August. Of course it took ages to come stores in The Netherlands which meant I wasn’t able to try it properly until early September. I…

Make Up Revolution Soph Extra Spice eyeshadow palette

It’s Saturday which means we are having another closer look at an eyeshadow palette. For today’s review, I figured we could have a look at a more affordable option that I think is really good. Say hello to the Make Up Revolution X Soph Extra Spice eyeshadow palette. The Soph palettes by Make Up Revolution…

TV series I watched

It was summer break which means I finally had the time to be watching some TV series again. As part of Free for all Friday, I thought I could also give an update of movies/ tv series I watched in the previous month. Because I definitely love bingewatching a tv series and with a heatwave…

Book Review // July & August 2019

Today’s video is one in which I talk you through all of the books I read in July & August. I read 10 books in total and this was mainly caused by my summer break which happened right in the middle. And right smack in the middle of that break, we had a heat wave….

Catrice Brow Comb Pro Micro Pen

I love when Catrice releases new products and they do something I haven’t seen before. For a drugstore brand they are certainly quite adventurous in trying out new formulas, different application methods for tried and true products and sometimes even their shade range can be a bit more adventurous than let’s say a Rimmel or…

Essence #Insta Perfect Liquid Highlighter

Liquid highlighter, no scratch that, liquid anything if it’s a color product is not my favorite. So when I find one that I like, of course I need to rave about it. Meet Essence’s #Insta Perfect liquid highlighter. This is the liquid highlighter that beats all liquid highlighters. I have to admit, I haven’t tried…

Colourpop Single Eyeshadows // Pt. 2

Yes part 2 and this is late because I went to a concert last night and in the end just couldn’t be bothered to finish this blog post to go live at its usual time. That said, though, I still wanted to get something up today so I am writing this as I am having…

Catrice Demi Matt Lipsticks (full collection)

A few weeks ago my local drugstore was doing a buy one get one half off deal on all Essence and Catrice makeup and I thought: wouldn’t it be fun if I’d show you the full collection? I already reviewed three of the shades, but there are 10 in total. So I decided to make…

Catrice Clean ID Mineral Bronzer

When I showed you my Shop my Stash yesterday, I raved about the new Catrice Clean ID Mineral Bronzer. This bronzer is another drugstore bronzer that has come out in recent times that stole my heart. I always struggled with drugstore bronzers as they were too dark, too orange and too muddy on my fair…

Catrice Crystallized Rose Quartz Eyeshadow Palette

As I am going through the new Catrice products for fall/ winter 2019, I am slowly but surely realizing that they really did some great stuff. Case in point? The Crystallized Rose Quartz eyeshadow palette. This eyeshadow palette was one of THE surprises for me of the new launch. I mostly think Catrice eyeshadow is…

Lush Bohemian Soap

When it comes to hand soap I am quite picky. This may seem a bit of a random thing to be picky about, but I generally find them too drying and make my hands itchy. Even my hands have sensitive skin! So when I wanted to buy some soap when I moved into my new…

Least Used Palettes

For my final August Palette Extravaganza video, I decided to talk about palettes that I liked, but don’t use enough. Either they have too few colors that appeal to me, or the formula takes more time to work with. So it’s not that I don’t like these per se, but there is just something about…

Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude foundation

About a year ago I decided I wanted to try more high end foundations. I bought a few over the course of the year and am now making my way through them and testing them out fully. During the month of August, I was up for an easy lightweight foundation. I decided to pull in…

Kiko Kohl Eyeliner

How often do you buy pencil liners? Myself, well I don’t do it too often. It’s one of those products where it doesn’t make sense to just keep on buying them. I’ve also had some bad experiences with dry, tough liners that didn’t stay put. So, not only is this a product I don’t buy…

Violet Voss Hashtag

Today I am reviewing another eyeshadow palette. I really feel I should be doing this more often, but there are so many pretty things and then these sort of slip through the cracks. The palette I am reviewing for you today, I have owned for over a year and I am only just now getting…

What is in my MAC palette?

One of the oldest palettes in my makeup collection isn’t an actual palette that is sold as such. When I got into makeup, palettes like the Urban Decay Naked or Too Faced Chocolate Bar had not yet been released. Back then, everyone bought singles and MAC was the place to be. So I decided immediately…

Catrice Sun Glow Limited Edition

I cannot remember the last time I reviewed a Catrice or Essence limited edition collection: they just hadn’t really grabbed my attention. But then Catrice started teasing their summer 2019 Sun Glow limited edition and I knew I wanted to try it. The products are finally for sale in The Netherlands and I decided to…

Rainbow Eyeshadow Palettes

In the past year or so, I have gotten into colorful, bright eyeshadow. I decided to try more and just play around and have fun with my makeup. Where I used to be a neutrals girl, who always needed a brown in the crease, I decided to push myself to wear color beyond a pop…

Essence Micro Precise brow pencil

For brows I am not super picky and I love my drugstore options. Some of my favorites are by Soap & Glory, Maybelline and Catrice. However, one of my ultimate favorite brow products is the Essence Make Me Brow. So when Essence came out with a brow pencil I was intrigued.

Make Up Revolution Flawless 4

When it comes to affordable eyeshadow palettes, I think one brand really takes the cake. That would be Make Up Revolution and all its different sub brands. Be it I Heart Revolution, be it Make Up Revolution: all their palettes give you decent quality for a good price point. So I decided to try some…

Real Techniques Complexion Blender

Do you need a brush to apply your prep and base products? No you don’t. You can get by perfectly well with just the use of your fingers for skincare, primer and even most foundations. However, I like keeping my hands clean when I do my makeup. So when I spotted this Real Techniques Complexion…

Make Up Revolution Green Tea setting spray

Makeup fixing spray was a product I didn’t really use for a long time. I tried the Urban Decay All Nighter and really liked it, but thought it was quite expensive for what it did. A travel size is €15 and so I decided to look for a more affordable option. I tried one by…
