Merry Christmas! Here’s my Christmas makeup look 2015

Hello! I’m taking a few days off from the blog, because we’re going to Vegas this weekend! Yeah, baby! It’s been almost 4 months since we moved away, can’t wait to be back. Nothing says Christmas like Sin City, right? Lol! Wishing every single one of you a very merry Christmas! Have fun with your friends and family and don’t eat too much. πŸ˜‰ If you’re traveling this weekend, safe travels! I might sneak in a blog post this weekend, if time allows it, but I’ll for sure ‘see’ you on Monday. Below are the makeup I used for my...

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. πŸ˜€ 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. I was sent one of these sets: the Kiss Duo Set. Fitting, right? I guess the people over at Vapour had heard about my obsession...

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 €24,50 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. πŸ˜€ 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...

My Target Holiday Box 2015 has arrived!

My Target Holiday Box 2015 has arrived! Actually, it got here a few days ago, but I’m just now getting around to taking pictures. Even though this beauty box is not available for purchase anymore, I thought it would still be nice to show you what was inside, especially after telling you about it in this post. I personally love this particular box, these are all products that I will use! There’s not one product that I would consider a ‘dud’. $10 well spent. This holiday season there were actually two Target boxes: one for her and one for him....

Review: Triple Sticks (Lipstick & Cream Blush) by Mommy Makeup

Hey busy moms! This post is for you! I’ve been trying out a new product by Mommy Makeup, the brand I mentioned the other day. Mommy Makeup is targeted at, you guessed it, moms! πŸ˜€ All of their products are multi-tasking and time saving; you can use one product for multiple areas on your face. Also, instead of loose powder, Mommy Makeup uses pressed mineral powder and their makeup kits contain ‘paint by number’ instructions & face chart to avoid any mistakes. Besides being quick and easy, Mommy Makeup is also suitable for sensitive skin as it’s allergy tested and...

My HUGE Thanksgiving beauty haul! MAC, Ulta Beauty, Sephora and more

Please don’t judge me!! Yes, I went a little overboard this year during Black Friday. Well, not just during Black Friday. Also the days before, the weekend after Thanksgiving and on Cyber Monday. Oops! I just couldn’t let these deals pass! A lot of what you see here are products I’ve always wanted to try or products that I already love. I ordered from Amazon, Mac Cosmetics, Sephora and Ulta Beauty. I also placed an order with Colourpop, my package arrived yesterday and I will show you those goodies in another post (my first Colourpop lippies!). With all these purchases...

Sephora Holiday Loyalty Rewards: did you receive your discount code?!

Happy Monday! I wanted to kick off the week with something fun: like last year Sephora is giving discount codes! It’s called the Sephora Holiday Loyalty Rewards and the unique code is valid for use in-store and online. It started about a week ago, so most of you have already received (or even used!) the code. However, I still wanted to share this with you, because there’s a possibility that you haven’t received the code in your regular mailbox. The reason I’m saying this is because I myself did not receive any mail from Sephora in my mailbox. I did,...

My November beauty favorites

Happy Saturday! While you’re reading this I’m at Knott’s Berry Farm with the family. Knott’s Merry Farm, as they’ve been calling it since November, is an amusement park here in California. Fun times! Actually, I’m not a big fan of these places (I hate rollercoasters!), so please keep me in your prayers. Hihi! πŸ˜‰ What are you doing this weekend? Today’s post is about my November favorites for makeup and skincare. These are beauty products that I’ve been using almost daily these last couple of months and am really loving! I have 7 products this time! Here we go… 1)...
