Here’s the eye cream I use: Live Ultimate’s Eyeluminate

I’ve been slacking big time lately. I see everyone posting their yearly favorites and I’m over here watching Netflix and eating ice cream. Well, not really but you know what I mean… ๐Ÿ˜€ There’s just something about winter time that makes me want to stay away from my computer and sleep. Or turn on the tv instead, while laying on the couch with a soft blanket and a hot cup of tea. I’m currently watching Making a Murderer on Netflix, which is a mind blowing story to me. I’m at episode 4 now. Have you watched it? Anyway, I don’t...

Unboxing my Influenster Marc Jacobs VoxBox! #velvetnoir

When I told you to sign up for Influenster, I wasn’t kidding! The boxes they sent me keep getting better and better! This time around I received the Marc Jacobs VoxBox and I was so excited to get it! So far everything I’ve liked everything I tried from Marc Jacobs (available at Sephora). I use their Highliner Gel Crayon Gel on a daily basis on my waterline and I also have a couple of lip glosses that are favorites. So when I opened the box, I couldn’t help but squeal. ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara!...

My Holiday Party Survival Guide: quick tips to look your best!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Supposedly, right? The holidays are fun, but can also be kinda stressful. Crowded stores, long check-out lines, busy parking lots, having to come up with unforgettable gifts, wrapping everything you bought, cold weather, guests from out-of-town, not enough money…the list goes on and on. ๐Ÿ˜€ The holidays are also the time when you go to a lot of parties and, of course, want to look your best. I don’t know about you, but whenever I want my makeup to look ‘perfect’, everything goes wrong! I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s...

Review: the ‘Kiss Duo Set’ from Vapour Organic Beauty (holiday gift set)

Ever heard of Vapour Organic Beauty before? I hadn’t until a couple of weeks ago, but I’m happy to have discovered it! Why? Because Vapour products are 100% natural with 70% organic ingredients and 30% mineral pigments and essential oils. Doesn’t that sound good? For the holidays Vapour put together 3 beauty sets featuring lip products, cream eyeshadows and blush sticks. These gift sets range from $40 – $70 and are available exclusively on Target.com.

Women of color! Check out the ESSENCE BeautyBox

Hi everyone! I received the ESSENCE BeautyBox the other day and I have to say: this is by far the best beauty box I’ve received this year! The best! The packaging, its size, the design, the concept behind it and of course the contents. I’m sure you’re familiar with ESSENCE magazine, right? I myself have been a subscriber of the magazine ever since I moved here from the Netherlands. Well, now ESSENCE has come out with a subscription box! The subscription to the ESSENCE BeautyBox is completely separate from the magazine. If you sign up for the BeautyBox, they will...

Coming in January 2016: MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour

Oh my gosh, after months of being teased with behind-the-scenes photos, there’s finally a release date for MAC’s liquid lipsticks. January 7th! And if you’re in The Netherlands (hoi!), you can expect these lippies to be in stores on January 9th. They are the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour and they will be $20 or รขโ€šยฌ24,50 each. From what I understand these are beautifully matte, very pigmented and extremely long-wearing. I know I told you guys that I won’t be buying any more liquid lipsticks, but of course I HAVE to make an exception for these. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ll be purchasing one...

My ColourPop Cyber Monday lipstick haul (pics & swatches)

I’m not buying any lipstick until Summer! I’m serious! I’ve accumulated SO MANY (liquid) lipsticks this past year, it’s ridiculous… My latest haul was done during Cyber Monday. I placed my first ColourPop order order ever. Everything on the site was 20% off, which I happily took advantage off. I’d had a Colourpop wish list for months now, but I had never been able to pull the trigger until this now. And get this, during this act of weakness (I really don’t need any more lipstick), I accidently order the same shade twice. D’oh! (in my Homer Simpson voice). But...
