Italy beauty haul: Sephora, Kiko & more

Haul time! Last week I showed you what I packed when I went to Rome, today I’m showing you the bits I brought home. Be aware: I shopped to my heart’s content. Why? Because Italy has Sephora, which means instant access to brands I can only dream of getting my hands on. So that is…

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,…

Shoplog: Sephora, New Yorker, H&M & more

Last Thursday I met up with two friends who I don’t get to see very often. I first met up with one of them to have lunch and go shopping in Utrecht. Later that day we went to the other friend and had some delicious pancakes to top of a great day. I bought a…

Sale Shopping Haul

Summer sale is on, which of course means that I had to go and see what was on offer. I think I managed to get quite a few things that are cool to show you. There’s mostly clothes (obviously), also because I plan to do some make up shopping when I’m in the States next…

Make Up Collection: Depotted Eyeshadows #2

Last week I already showed you my depotted NYX eyeshadows, but I have another palette filled with Sephora eyeshadows which I will show you today. Now I hear many people say bad things about Sephora shadows: they’re not pigmented, they give me a rash, etc. I have had no problems with these shadows though. Yes,…

Review: Sephora Express Nail Polish Remover

One product many beautyblogs have been raving about is the express nail polish remover by Sephora. What it is, is a little pot with a sponge inside that should make cleaning up polish from your finger nails a breeze. After reading some reviews about this product online I thought I’d give it a shot and…

Make up collection: Depotted eyeshadow

A while ago I decided to depot a bunch of my single eyeshadows. I wrote a blog post about it here. I had many single eyeshadows lying about by NYX and Sephora, depotted them and put them into two Z-palettes. I nicked a few of them while depotting so excuse some of the destroyed shadows,…

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…

Shoplog: Lush, MAC, Sephora, Zara & more

It’s been a while since I last went shopping. With a new laptop and flights and hotels being booked so I can do some more fun things throughout the year, there wasn’t much money left for a full blow out shopping spree. However, last Thursday I found myself in The Hague for my doctor’s appointment…

Make up collection: Brushes

I grew up using nothing but sponge tip applicators that came with the product to apply my make up. Ever since I became more and more interested in make up, I quickly learned that you can do so much more as long as you have the right brush to do it. You can have the…

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…

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…

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…

Mini Sephora Haul

For those of you following me on Twitter will have read that I missed two trains tonight and opted for a stop at Sephora and Starbucks as a result. Sephora now has an offer that you get a 25% discount on all make up and I had spotted a nail polish I wanted to get…
