Unboxing: my ESSENCE BeautyBox

Back in February I received another ESSENCE BeautyBox that is too good not to share with you! 😀 The ESSENCE box is a monthly subscription box with 5 makeup, skincare and hair products from big (black-owned) brands. The difference between this box and any other subscription boxes is that this one is targeted at women of color (WOC), which is pretty cool, especially when relating to hair products. In these boxes you will not find any products for ‘naturally straight’ hair, for example, or ‘blonde’ hair, products that I wouldn’t use anyway. The products are selected by the people from...

it Cosmetics is QVC Today’s Special Value! Also, I’m back 🙂

You may or may not have noticed that I’ve been away for a while. My last update was at the very end of January, almost 2 months ago. We’re now coming to the end of March and I can finally say that I’m back! I took a needed break from my blog…let’s just say life got ‘in the way’. I’m not going to go into the reasons right now, but I certainly will in the near future. 🙂 I chose today as my ‘comeback’, just so I could tell you guys about this crazy deal.

Quick tip! Lumixyl Trifecting Retinol Night Cream, targets 3 skincare issues at once

I have a quick skincare tip for you today. 🙂 If you have the same skin issues as I have (dark spots, fine lines and blemishes), then check out this night cream! It’s by Lumixyl MD and it’s called the Trifecting Night Cream. Lumixyl Trifecting Night Cream is a skin perfecting treatment that boosts brightness, dissolves blemishes and leaves you with clear and smooth skin. Its main ingredient is retinol, an ingredient I LOVE. Retinol helps cell turnover to fade the appearance of signs of aging and damage. It creates a smoother texture, as well as a more ‘even’ tone....

I’m doing *Project 16 in 2016*

Inspired by a makeup group I’m in on Facebook, I’ve decided to do Project 16 in 2016! This means that I’ve selected 16 products that I am planning on using up this year. Yikes! This is how ’16 in 2016′ works: • Pick 16 products that you have and need to use. • Use them up by the end of 2016. • You have to use that item before you can purchase another of that item type. I did purchase two new liquid lipsticks yesterday (the new Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours by MAC), but starting TODAY I will not be...

Mani Monday! ‘My Private Jet’ by OPI on my nails this week

First of all, let’s all just ignore the fact that it’s Tuesday and the title of this post is ‘Mani Monday’, ok? I meant to post this yesterday obviously, but life got a little bit in a way. So Mani Monday on a Tuesday it is! 😀 Secondly, I finally got my gel polish removed. Yay! You might have seen this post where I showed you my silver holographic gel nails, which I loved! Even though I love the effect of gel, I feel that having it on for too long isn’t that great for your nail beds. It makes...

All about my skincare routine (ft. Mirai Clinical products)

Hope you’re having a great weekend! After posting an overview of my bodycare products, I promised you to also show you which products I use on my face. My skincare routine is pretty straightforward. I use a face wash and serum that also acts as a toner and moisturizer. Once a week I also apply a facemask, either a traditionals mask or an Asian sheet mask. I do get breakouts every now and then (usually during that time of the month). When I do, I use a topical spot treatment with benzoyl peroxide, which usually clears it up within a...

Mini haul: All New Wet n Wild!

Wet n Wild made me break my no-buy! I wasn’t planning on purchasing anything new in the month of January (to recover from the holidays), but when I spotted these new products at Walgreens, I couldn’t resist. Luckily, Wet n Wild is still pretty inexpensive, so I don’t feel that bad about it. 😀 Here’s what I got Lash-O-Matic Mascara + Fiber Extension Kit ($7.99) Wet n Wild has a fiber mascara! I’ve never tried fiber mascaras, so I was excited to see this. They call it their Lash-O-Matic Mascara + Fiber Extension Kit. I still working on a bunch...

My bodycare products: Japanese & anti-aging! I use Mirai Clinical

Today’s post is about my bodycare! After covering my haircare the other day, I thought it was time to go over my skincare routine now. 🙂 Today I will go over what I’ve been using on my body and later this week I’ll show you what I’ve been using on my face. My bodycare products are all by a Japanese skincare brand called Mirai Clinical. You know that the Japanese are serious about their skincare and this line proves it! Its main ingredient is persimmon, a fruit that geisha have been using for centuries for its antibacterial and deodorizing properties....

Review: Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara by Marc Jacobs

I’ve been using the Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara by Marc Jacobs for almost a month now and I’m finally ready to write my review! Over the years I noticed that a new mascara can perform differently than a mascara that has been opened for a while. For this reason I waited a little bit with writing this, so I can tell you my full experience! ‘Velvet Noir’ is said to be an ultra-volumizing mascara that delivers instant dimension for epic lashes. According to Marc Jacobs it gives you the thickest lashes in one sweep. Velvet Noir is inspired by...
