My top 10 makeup buys under $10

If you’re not into spending a lot of money on makeup, but you’re still looking for good quality makeup that won’t crease/fade/bleed/disappear/smudge etc on you, then today’s post if for you! But let’s be real, nobody wants to spend a lot of money on makeup. Especially since companies come out with new stuff all the time (especially around the holidays) and who does’t like new goodies? I went through my makeup collection and found 10 products I love… and all under $10! And if I’ve purchased them in Europe, then they’re under €10 (which is a little over $10, but...

Beauty Q&A: What’s something everybody has, but you?

Hey there people! It’s Friday! Woohoo! 🙂 I promise I’ll post a ‘life update’ soon (I’ve recently moved to Vegas, in case you haven’t been following my blog). It will most likely be up this weekend. For now, I have a burning question! Question: What’s something everybody has, but you? My answer: I would say OCC Lip Tars. I feel like every legitimate lip junkie, like myself, has at least 3 or 4 in their collection. I have none. These are highly opaque lipsticks that come in a little tube and a brush. They are by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics and...

Review: Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit (new at Kohls)

They say eyebrows are one of the most important features of our faces; and yet they are often the most neglected. This is certainly the case for me!​​ ​​I have very full eyebrows. I go to an eyebrow place every two to three months to have my browns shaped and threated and in between visits I do the the best I can with tweezers. That’s it. No eyebrow powders or pencils. I’ve actually never really felt the need to ‘do my eyebrows’. It seems like a lot of work to me. However, I was sent an eyebrow kit by Billion...

Tyra Banks launches beauty line: TYRA Beauty

The other day I heard that Tyra Banks has recently came out with her own makeup line, called TYRA Beauty. Even though I know that Tyra is quite the business woman, I didn’t expect this from her. Of course it’s not a real surprise when a former super model comes out with a beauty line, but for some reason I tought Tyra wasn’t interested in doing something like this. If she was, wouldn’t she start her own line years ago? Anyway, I did some googling and found some more information on it. Because it’s pretty hilarious, I thought I’d share!...

Q&A: Is there a beauty product you thought you’d NEVER buy, but you ended up buying it anyway?

Hope you had a great weekend! It’s time for another Q&A. Don’t forget to leave you answers in the comments! 🙂 Question: Is there a beauty product you thought you would NEVER buy, but you ended up buying it anyway? Answer: To be honest, I have way too many lipsticks and I always tell myself I don’t need any more! My obsessions are MAC lipsticks, lipsticks by Maybelline and Revlon and lipsticks that are ‘dupes’ for more expensive, but popular shades. I’ve recently thrown out a bunch of old lipsticks, because they were smelling funky. Some of them I had...

Q&A: What beauty product do you have that you wish looked better on you?

I’ve been feeling a little uninspired lately. I’ve been thinking about doing a makeup stash blog post (showing you my collection, my holy grails, my recent purchases, my fails etc.), but everything is in boxes right now because we’re moving in two weeks (more about the move soon!). Once we’re fully settled into our new home and I’ve unpacked all my stuff, I’ll definitely follow up on this. For now I thought it would be fun to do start a new series, a Q&A! 🙂 Every day for the next week I will answer a beauty related question. Today’s question...

A Week of Favorites: black|Up Matifying Fluid Foundation

It’s Saturday, meaning the 6th day of my Week of favorites: a run-through of my current favorite products! 🙂 This post is about the liquid foundation I’ve been wearing recently. After I ran out of my beloved Hourglass foundation (this one), I wanted to try something completely new and different. I ended up at the black Up counter at Douglas (during my trip to The Netherlands). black Up was a brand I’d never tried before (don’t think so, anyway) and the lady at the counter convinced me to try their Matifying Fluid Foundation. She gave a me sample, which I...

A Week of Favorites: MAC Extra Dimension Blushes (Alluring Aquatic Collection)

It’s Friday!! Today’s favorites are two blushes from the Alluring Aquatic Collection by MAC, a limited edition collection that came out in May. At first I wasn’t planning on getting them, but when I saw the packaging in person I totally fell in love! I think this is MAC’s coolest packaging to date: pretty teal packaging with 3D water droplets…I love it! Ever since I got these blushes I’ve been basically rotating between them. I can’t help it. They are so beautiful! Below is a closer look. 🙂 ​​​On the left: MAC Sea Me, Hear Me Extra Dimension Blush. It’s...

A Week of Favorites: Makeup brushes by it Cosmetics

Day 4 of my Week of Favorites! The week goes by fast, huh? Today’s favorites are the makeup brushes I’ve been obsessed with lately. I’ve been pretty much only using my brushes by it Cosmetics for my face. I own different brands when it comes to makeup brushes, but recently I’ve only been grabbing for these ones. They are just SO soft, luxurious and give a really nice, flawless finish. Great quality brushes that are worth the investment! Below is an overview of the brushes I have, how they’re described and what I use them for. My it Cosmetics brush...

First impressions: upcoming MAC Viva Glam Rihanna 2

I’m sure you guys have seen these pictures already! They were all over social media the moment Rihanna and MAC Cosmetics made them public. Of course I’m talking about Rihanna’s new Viva Glam 2 lipstick and lipglass! Rihanna’s first lipstick for MAC Viva Glam is (it’s still available!) a big hit and now she has come out with a new one and a matching lipglass! These upcoming releases have, how should I put it…caused a little commotion? Yes, that’s the best way to describe it. 😀 Do we like them or not? Check out the official pictures below and find...

July empties! Makeup and skin care I’ve used up

Hi everyone! Sorry for my absence. Don’t really have much of an excuse, except that ‘life’ kinda got in the way. I’ve been enjoying the warm weather and blogging wasn’t really a priority. Anyway, today I’ll be showing you which products (makeup and skin care), I’ve used up recently.In stead of throwing this stuff out, I’ve been saving them for a while. However, to be honest, I should have had a lot more empties by now, but I’ve been tossing them (completely forgetting about these series!). So dumb! The last time I did a blog post like this was ages...

On My Nails: Perfect Touch in nr. 6 (NEW at Big Bazar stores)

What’s on my nails this week? I haven’t done one of these posts in a long time….a very long time. I have been wearing nail polish, but I just haven’t felt the need to take pictures of it. I tend to wear a lot of the same colors: mostly taupe, brown or purple. Boring, I know. What I have on my nails now, isn’t all that special either! It’s ‘just’ a taupe, but I love it! And they’re practically giving this nail polish away for free. 😉 It’s a creamy polish by the brand Perfect Touch. Perfect Touch is a...
