In Catrice’s new line up, there are quite a few new, innovative products. The first such product? The Insta To Go Blur Stick. This stick promises to smooth out pores and fine lines and can be applied underneath or on top of makeup. Not a product that my makeup needs necessarily call for, but I was still intrigued.

It’s finally here: my review of Urban Decay Naked Cherry. This newest eyeshadow palette in Urban Decay’s Naked line up came very suddenly and quite unexpected. The launch happened just weeks after the announcement of the original Naked palette being discontinued. But the palette is here and you know I had to give it a try.

A skincare brand I had been wanting to try for some time is The Ordinary. A while ago, the Internet was abuzz with how well this affordable skincare brand should work. The idea is simple: simple ingredients that are stripped down to its core at an affordable price point that just does what it says in the tin. I finally got my hands on some of their products when I last was in London. How did I fare with The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5?

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 stores in the Netherlands as well as in the US of course. What do I think of the new Maybelline lip ink shades?

Essence has released a bunch of new eyeshadow palettes, which means I want to try at least one of them. My experience with Essence eyeshadow palettes hasn’t been the best. Especially with palettes that are part of their regular line up, I have had some bad experiences which I have reviewed here and here. In general, I have most luck with their limited edition palettes, such as the one released last summer. Since they are so hit or miss for me, I am always a bit apprehensive going into them, but today we are reviewing one of the newest palettes to the line up. Let’s have a closer look at the Essence Be You Tiful eyeshadow palette.

A pinky purple highlighter is one of my favorites, so when I discovered that I like that last year, I bought quite a few to try to see which one is my favorite. It all started with Becca Prismatic Amethyst and one possible, much more affordable dupe for that highlighter is the NYX Duochromatic highlighter in Lavender Steel.

I have never tried any skincare by L’Oreal. Make up, nail polish, sunscreen, haircare, you name it I have tried, but I never delved into their skincare range. Until now. I spotted the new Hydra Genius Aloe Water in my local drugstore and was very intrigued. Since I couldn’t really test it, I was happy to meet a sales lady who had some samples to try and I was suprised by how hydrating this felt. So the next time I found this on offer, I snatched one up to try. How am I getting on after a few weeks of using the L’Oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water?
