Makeup and skin care products I’m LOVING right now!

09 Jul 2014

It’s time to share with you which products I’m loving right now! These are items, both makeup and skin care, that I’ve been enjoying a lot in the past month(s). If you’ve been following me, you know that I’m currently visiting my family in The Netherlands (still, yes). This means that I’ve mainly been using the stuff I brought with me in my suitcase, which was kinda limited. But of course I wouldn’t be Kizzy if I also hadn’t purchased a few things here! I’m always curious to try out new things, especially when I’m in a different country, even if it’s my home country. 😉

Below are my current favorite products AND my son’s favorite Lego blocks. Hihi!

1) Demak’up Micellaire Tonic Fris
This is a micellar water by Dutch brand Demak’up. If you don’t know what a micellar water is, check out this blog post from a couple of weeks ago. I basically pour a little bit of the water on a cotton pad after I’m ‘done’ cleaning my face in the evening and then I apply it on my face. You’d be surprised to see how much dirt still comes off my face! Strangely, it’s kinda awesome to see. 😀

2) Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask by Pure & Essential Minerals
If I had a pick a favorite type of mask, it would definitely be a mud mask. Love it! I like how mud masks do a great job at sucking up all the junk in your skin and tightening up your pores. This mask is no exception. It makes my face feels clean and soft, but also very moisturized and nourished. I love how it smells too, very spa-like (it contains really good oils!). This is the kind of mask that will give you great (anti-aging) results in the long run!

3) Essence All About Matt Oil Control Make-up Base
My review on this primer will be online soon!

4) it Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Buffing Airbrush Foundation Brush
Looking for an amazingly soft foundation brush that makes your foundation look all perfect? This is your guy! It feels extremely nice and soft and it really does give you that ‘airbrush’ finish like its name claims. I’ve been enjoying this brush more than my holy grail Sigma F80 brush, that says A LOT!

5) it cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Butter Gloss in ‘I Believe’
The Vitality Lip Flush Butter Gloss treats, hydrates, conditions and nourishes your lips and it also minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s smooth, not sticky, smelly or thick and makes my lips look all pretty and pouty. 🙂 I have different shades in this range, but this is the shade I’ve been reaching for the most (almost every day, to be honest), it’s a ‘my lips but better’ shade AND it feels really nice on my lips, almost like a lip balm. I’ll be sad when it’s gone.

6) Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara by Jordana Cosmetics
Why haven’t I tried this mascara before? I feel like I’ve been missing out on a drugstore GEM! I’ll be reviewing this shortly, because I feel like you all should try it. Especially if you prefer your lashes to look thick and fake, like I do. 😉

These were a couple of products that I’ve really been enjoying lately! The micellar water is only available in The Netherlands, but the other products are available both here and the United States. Speaking of The Netherlands, will you be watching the World Cup tonight? My boys will be playing against Argentina. Can’t wait! 🙂
