My current beauty favorites. All MAKEUP!

I’m typing this while there’s an eclipse going on. If I didn’t have small kids I would go out with special glasses and take pictures, but taking them out for this purpose is not an option right now. Haha! 😀 Anyway, here’s a quick blog post to show you guys which products I’ve been enjoying lately, my beauty favorites. I’ve been kinda slacking when it comes to writing full reviews (there’s never enough time in a day), so I hope you’ll enjoy these mini-reviews. If you do want more info, swatches or other pics…let me know. This is part 1,...

Review: Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara (NEW at Sephora)

Have you heard of the new Monsieur Big Mascara by Lancome? It’s new at Sephora. I was lucky enough to get my hands on it through Influenster and I’ve been trying it every day since I got back from the US. I like it a lot. 🙂 It’s made to give your lashes up to 12x the volume and last for up to 24 hours thanks to its brush and formula. Below are more details and my own before and after pictures. How it’s described “Ideal for all-day wear, this mascara doesn’t require touch-ups and doesn’t flake or smudge. This...

I’m back in the US! I’ve been back for almost a week actually, but the jet lag has been real.

Haha! I’m working on a review (trying out a new product), it will be up tomorrow. In the meantime, check out Free Beauty Events’ latest Beauty Basket Giveaway!

On my nails: KIKO Smart Nail Lacquer in ‘Dark Chocolate’

It’s been forever since I showed you my nails! Honestly, there wasn’t much to show. I’ve been keeping them short (because of the baby) and I also haven’t been wearing any exciting colors. Just the same nudes over and over again. And sometimes just a clear polish. The other day I picked up a few things at KIKO Cosmetics (there’s an actual store near my parents’ house), including two nail polishes. I posted a picture of my purchases on my Instagram. I don’t need any more polishes, but I couldn’t resist since they were on sale (just 2 Euro). One...

IT’s on! IT Cosmetics is QVC Today’s Special Value #ByeByeBreakthroughs

As you know I love IT Cosmetics. Over the years this brand has become a staple in my makeup collection. The best way to buy IT Cosmetics is during a sale on their website, or at Ulta (you’ll earn points) or on QVC. And guess what? The brand is QVC’s Today’s Special Value today. 😀 Today, it started at midnight ET, you’ll be able to purchase a 5-piece set for an awesome price. As I’m writing this, I don’t exactly know yet what the price will be, but IT Cosmetics has been on QVC before and it’s always of GREAT...

Guest blog: Beauty Bakerie Cosmetics San Diego store opening (by Sheyla)

Beauty Bakerie, the Instafamous cosmetic brand opened its first flagship store in San Diego (Westfield Mission Valley mall) last weekend! Close to where I live. Sweet, right? (pun intented…hah!)

Review: Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Full Coverage Foundation Concentrate

When I posted my favorite beauty products overseas (I’m currently staying at my family in the Netherlands), I mentioned the foundation I’ve been using. For the past couple of months, I’ve been using the Re(marc)able Full Coverage Foundation by Marc Jacobs. A lot of you asked me how I like it and if it’s worth buying. Coincidentally, I was already planning on writing a full review on it, so here it is. 😀 Re(marc)able is a $55 foundation (yup, it’s pricey) and is available at Sephora and on Marc Jacob’s beauty website, where they’re currently having a Friends & Family...

Current beauty favorites while overseas…

I’ve been overseas, in the Netherlands, for over a month now (visiting my family) and during this time I’ve been ‘using my stash’, as they say, but I’ve also been trying out new products here and there. But, honestly guys, my skin has been a mess… I’ve been nursing my baby for over 7 months now and my skin has not been liking it; I have a new breakout every day. For this reason, I’m back to using anti-acne products, like benzoyl peroxide and retinol, which have caused my skin to start peeling. Let me tell you, peeling skin in...

Sephora’s Spring Bonus Insider Shopping Event has started!

I’m alive, guys! I’ve been missing over here, because (mom)life kinda took over… We’re currently staying at my family in The Netherlands and I’ve been spending a lot of time with friends and family. Also, my little one was sick for a while. There just aren’t enough hours in the day sometimes! I have been active on my Instagram (@Kizzyonline), but I haven’t gotten around to update the blog. Anyway, I’m here now. You probably know this already, but I feel like it would be wrong for me to not mention it: Sephora’s Spring Bonus Sale has started! 😀 The...
