Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks: 6 reasons why I love these

I have a quick recommendation today! By now you must have seen Maybelline’s Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks at your local drugstore or grocery store. They’ve been out for a little while. I have to say: at first I was hesitant to try them, because I had heard several people saying these are not matte, even though they do have the word ‘matte’ in their name. For this reason I wasn’t in a hurry to try them. I didn’t try them until I received two shades for free in my most recent Influenster VoxBox. I have to say: these are actually...

My 25 weeks baby bump! And all about yesterday’s makeup

Happy Monday! 🙂 A while back I promised to post some baby bump shots, which I finally got around to doing. During my first pregnancy we took a lot of ‘progress’ pictures and I have to admit: with this baby we’ve been slacking a little bit. A big part of it was me not feeling all that well. I mean…who wants to take pictures if you’re feeling sick? Luckily, my nausea has calmed down a bit. Besides the heartburn, body aches and fatigue, I’m doing pretty well. I had my ‘glucose tolerance test’ the other day and the results were...

My May favorites: BECCA, Exuviance, Hard Candy, IT, Maybelline & more!

Hi everybody! It’s me, Kizzy. You might remember me. 😀 I’ve been active on Instagram, but pretty much away from my blog for a little while, as you may have noticed. This pregnancy has been kicking my butt! They say that girl pregnancies are generally harder than boy pregnancies and up until 6 months ago, I thought that was just a tale. But I gotta tell you, this pregnancy has indeed been harder! I’ve been experiencing a million issues, most of them I didn’t have when I was pregnant with my son. Nothing too serious, fortunately, but uncomfortable enough to...

Unboxing: my first PLAY! by SEPHORA subscription box

I’d been on the waiting list for PLAY! by SEPHORA for a couple of months and the other day I finally got notified that a spot had opened up. So last week I received my first box in the mail. Yay!

BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection: my review, pics and swatches (WOC)

As promised here are my pictures and thoughts on BECCA’s Champagne Collection! As you probably know by now, BECCA has teamed up with YouTuber Jaclyn Hill for a second time and together they came up with an entire collection. 🙂 I’ve been playing around with these new products of course (literally couldn’t wait!) and I have to say… beautiful! Every single product gives you a very natural, gorgeous glow and the packaging is super cute. The eye shadow palette has neutral colors that are great for everyday. The pigmentation is very on point, the shadows are silky and smooth and...

Upcoming review: BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection!

OMG! BECCA is doing it again! They have teamed up with YouTuber Jaclyn Hill for a second time and together they came up with an entire collection. The packaging is to die for and the shades are even more beautiful! And when I say ‘beautiful’, trust me…I’m not overreacting. This collection is absolutely stunning! Not only is it gorgeous to look at, everything looks suitable for most skin tones. 🙂 The Champagne collection features several new and limited edition items. Champagne Pop, the original Shimmering Skin Perfector, will be available in Liquid and Poured Crème. Another new item is the...

Review and swatches: BECCA Luminous Blush (all 6!)

See all these beautiful, luminous blushes? I swear, this is the best package I’ve received so far! I was literally squealing with excitement when opening the box. Hihi! So much so that my 3-year-old had to ask me if ‘everything was ok’. 😀 The BECCA brand screams luxury to me, everything is just so beautiful! I already own a couple of their products: the Ever-Matte Shine Proof Foundation and matching primer, and, of course, the popular Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in ‘Champagne Pop’. All beautiful products that, to be honest, I only use for special occasions, because I don’t...

Metallic liquid lipsticks! Milani Amore Mattallics vs Wet n Wild Metallic

I think we’re officially done with matte lips! Yes, it’s been a huge trend, but cosmetics companies are slowing coming out with something else: metallic liquid lipsticks. Metallic lipstick isn’t anything new (hello 90s!), but we are currently seeing more and more shiny lips as supposed to matte ones. I’m not mad at it though: matte lipsticks can be very drying and hard to apply. Metallic lip products go on more smooth, are more moisturizing and give your lips volume. So far, I’ve tried two brands of metallic lips: Wet n Wild and Milani. Below are my findings, including pictures...

Review: You Sculpted! Universal Contouring Palette for Face & Body by IT Cosmetics

Contouring… are you sick of hearing that word yet? 😀 Everybody seems to be obsessed with it. Before contouring was a ‘thing’, it was a technique only used by celebrity makeup artists at photoshoots. Now (almost) everybody is doing it. Yes, even me! I like to contour my cheeks and when I’m feeling extra adventurous I try my hand at contouring my nose, making it appear slimmer. Every makeup brand out there has come out with some sort of contour palette and the one that I’ve been enjoying the most lately is one by IT Cosmetics: You Sculpted! Universal Contouring...

Review: Milani Prime Shield Mattifying and Pore-Minimizing Face Primer

I think I’ve complained about my oily skin at least a million times now on my blog. I’m pretty sure you’re sick of hearing it. 😀 Fact is, almost every product I use and review is targeted at oily skin, especially my makeup. I’m always looking for the something better, something that controls my oil and keeps me matte for a longer period of time. When Milani came out with two new face primers, one of which being mattifying, I couldn’t wait to try it! Milani came out with the Prime Perfection Hydrating + Pore-Minimizing Face Primer, in a white...
