Urban Decay: 15th Anniversary Palette!

Hi everyone,

Finally I got my hands on the 15th Anniversary Palette from Urban decay! Yay :)
I had been wanting this palette for quite a while now, I even considered ordering it online but it was always sold out.. I wonder why?! A week ago I went to Breda, in The Netherlands and found this gorgeous palette in sephora! You can only guess how excited I was :)

Since there are no sephora stores in Belgium yet, please, pretty please bring them to Belgium?, I had to go look for it abroad.

Vaseline Lip Therapy with rose and almond oil: Rosy Lips!

No comments:
Hi everyone,
Today I want to share with you my most used lip balm for the moment, and that is the Lip Therapy with rose and almond oil from Vaseline, in the color Rosy lips. This lip balm comes in a metal container, nothing too fancy. The packaging is not what you put on your lips though so we won't worry about that too much :) The product itself is very creamy and easy to apply on your lips. The only thing that may be a issue for some of you is that you have to apply the lip balm with you fingers, but other than that it leaves my lips feeling soft and keeps them from getting dry and chapped. Just what we need right? And the price is a total steel, here in Belgium it only costs €1,99 and internationally it's available for only $4,99.
Rosy Lips - Original

Rosy Lips - Original
I love it so much I went out and got a second one in original. At night I don't need the pink on my lips right? :)

MAC Mac Me Over: Stunner Blush

No comments:
Hi everyone,
I've been pretty busy lately with school starting again and stuff, but this is going to be the last part of the Mac Me Over series. The last thing i will post about this collection is the Stunner Blush. Now after my first puchase i did go back to MAC to get some more of this collection and i also bought the Evil eye eye shadow quad and another lipstick in Secret Lover. These wont be included in the series cause you probably saw enough of this collection by now :)

So lets move on :)
Stunner is described as a 'light coral pink' with a satin finish. To me the blush looks a little more pink than coral and is very light. Tough it's a light colored blush the pigmentation is great and this has become one of my favorite blushes from MAC.
Here's a swatch:

Better late than never :)

Nail of the Day: Nail art

No comments:
Hi everyone,
Another nail of the day for you guys :) I know it's been a while since i've done one but my nail colors haven't really been special lately. Up until now! :)
I've been experimenting with nail art recently and this is what i've come up with.
I was supposed to be a Cheeta print, but that kinda failed.. Guess i need more practice, tips are welcome ;) haha. I do quite like what it looks like. I think i looks a little like flowers? Anyway, I used Mermaids Tears from OPI as a base color, then randomly put messy dots on my nails using Dating a Royal, also OPI? Next i used a small pointed nail art brush and Catrice's Nero polish, which is a normal black, to create messy lines around the dots.

What do you think, should i do more nail art NOTD's?

Holiday Haul: Venice!

No comments:
Ciao again! :)
I'm still in Italy on my holiday and last Friday my family and I went to Venice together.
Venice is such a beautiful city and must definetly be added on to your Places-to-visit List! Must See! And of course besides the beautiful architecture, the canals and the gondolas, there's also some shopping to be done. Most of the stores are really expensive, but still there's something for everyone.

Walking to the small, gorgeous streets we came across a make up store, KIKO.
This is an Italian make up brand, and the store had really a lot to see :)
These are the things I got:

Since my lips are very sensitive and it is very hot here in Italy, I needed something with spf to protect them. As soon as I walked in I found what I needed.
I also picked up three eye shadows :) each of them costed only €3.00, as they were on sale. They were all labeled with numbers, and these ar the ones I got in order of apearence 129, 15, 157.

 Here are some swatches for you guys:

I know the lightest color (the first one) is hard to see on my arm, but it's there. This is the best I could do, on the eye lid it looks a lot better though, I've tried it on :)

The quality is nice and I really like the colors I picked out!
You'll hear from me soon!!

Upcoming MAC Collection: MAC Me Over!

No comments:
Hi everyone,
Eventhough I already blogged about an other collection that will be coming out, there is one that is coming out earlier.. Shame on me!
MAC Me Over, the collection that we'll be seeing in the stores soon is one of the largest collections I've ever seen since I bought my first MAC product.
To make it easy for us to choose what we'll be getting this collection will contain 51 products.. Easy, no? NOT!

Take a look at the collection and you'll realise that you'll want it all.. My wallet already knows what to expect, haha..

There will be something for everyone, from more neutral looks to more daring ones.
Have a look for yourself :)

This collection will launch in North America August 25, 2011. Internationally it will be launched during the month of September.
The exact launch date for Belgium is September 3, 2011.

I know I'll be at the store when this collection launches! All of these products look amazing, don't you think?

Photos are from here

Are you as excited for this collection as I am? Which of these products are calling you?

Upcoming M.A.C Collection: Colourization

No comments:
Hi everyone,

Today's blog post is going to be all about the next upcoming collection from MAC. 
This collection is already available in the U.S., but since I live in Belgium I'm not able to get my hands on the collection yet. The exact release date isn't available either so I won't be able to tell you when exactly you should rush to the stores.. Bummer..

Nevertheless I can give you a little sneak peek on what the collection will actually look like :) Yhaaay!

" COURIZATIONS Double Feature Shadow Compacts in eight daring pairings that combine shades in sophisticatedly unexpacted ways, while Technakohl Liner ads drama. Plus: two set ready Brushes."

Colourization will contain 8 double eye shadow palettes, 6 Technakohl liners, a zoom lash mascara and 2 brushes.
These are the eye shadow palettes:
Double Feature 1: Bright yellow gold (Veluxe Pearl) + Pink-up chrome purple (Frost)
Double Feature 2: Bright lime (Veluxe Pearl) + Frosty deep grey (Frost)
Double Feature 3: Midtone Teal (Matte) + Deep chocolate (Satin)
Double Feature 4: Deep forest green (Veluxe pearl) + Midtone ochre brown (Satin)
Double Feature 5: Pale frosty peach (Frost) + Dark brown with green pearl (frost)
Double Feature 6: Light grey taupe (Frost) + Midtone bronze (Veluxe Pear)
Double Feature 7: Bright fuschia (Frost) + Cool black (Frost)
Double Feature 8:Midtone orange (Frost) + Deep navy (Satin)

The palettes cost $25.00 each, but I don't know what the European prices will be yet.

The combinations look dead gorgeous in my opinion. some are more daring then others, which means there's something for everyone :) One thing though that I don't like about this collection is that the eye shadows don't have actual names.. Say what? Nope.. They don't, so no cool names like all the other eye shadows have. Well, most of them have :)
Other then that this collection seems to be pretty amazing and also very handy for people who travel a lot because of the size of the compact.

The Technakohl liners come in green, blue, purple, khaki, brown and black shades. And the two brushes will be a medium angled shading brush (275) and a tapered blending brush (222).
The Technakohl liners cost $15.00 each , again European prices not yet available.. The brushes are sold for $24.50 (275) and $30.00 (222).

I'll be rushing to the store when this collection comes out. Will you ?

Holy Grail Lipstick!!: YSL Rouge Volupté

No comments:
Hi everyone,
Last week I went shopping in Oostende cause I wanted to pick up some new things.
I also wanted to take a look at everything on sale and was hoping to find some good deals :) 
Unfortunately, no great deals were found..
Except... my new absolute favorite lipstick!!

I had been eyeing this lipstick for months now but it costs €30,50, which is quite expensive..
We came across a Planet Parfum and I heared that they also sold OPI nail polishes, so I went in to take a look.

Curious to see what the price of the YSL lipsticks was in this store in walked to the make up part of the store and saw that they had the color I wanted. I figured that I might as well get the lipstick in this store as I was already buying a nail polish.
When I got to the cash register I learned that you get a 20% discount all year round on every make up and perfume item you buy at Planet Parfum. Hooray!

How come I did not know this earlier I wonder? 

So I bought the YSL Rouge Volupté number 2 which is called Blond Sensuel (Sensual Silk)
This seriously is my new holy grail lipstick!
I absolutely loooove the packaging, take a look for yourself: 
It's a very nude, slightly pinkish color and it feels really creamy and silky on my lips. It's perfect for everyday use! :) 
So, if your looking for a new nude lipstick and haven't found one yet you really like? Go check these out.
In my opinion they're definetly  worth the splurge! :)

Have you already tried the YSL Rouge Volupté lipsticks? Whould you like to have one of these?

Today's blog post will be all about MAC's SIZED TO GO collection. This collection came to Belgium last week and contains travel sizes of products that are already part of MAC's permanent line. Thanks to this collection  we'll all be able to take some of our most favorite products with us on the plane! How great is that? :)

These are the travel sizes you can find both online and in the MAC stores and counters:                       'Pro Makeup Remover' - 'Cleanse of oil' - 'Cleanse of oil/Tranquil' - 'Fix+' - 'Studio Moisture Cream 30ml' - 'Strobe Cream' - 'Green Gel Cleanser' - 'Oil Control Lotion' - 'Demi wipes'

The prices range from €10,00 up to €15,00. Or if you live in the U.S. $10.00 up to $15.00.

This collection made me decide to try some of MAC's most used products. I bought the travel size Strobe cream and Fix+. 

I love these travel sizes! Thank you MAC!!

What's your opinion on these travel sizes? :)

Sinfulcolors Professional: Nail polish!!

No comments:
Hi everyone,
This blog post is going to be all about a new brand I discovered recently when I went shopping in Knokke.
I walked into Di and took a look around to see what they were offering make-up wise when my eye came across a stack of nail polishes from the brand Sinfulcolors. I had never heard of this brand before and I must say I wasn't really sure whether I wanted to get some or not..

The I saw some beautiful colors with lots and lots of sparkles and I knew I just had to try them out. I immediately got two different ones :)

The first one I got is a blue nail polish that has multicolored sparkles. This one is called Hottie (nr. 831)
The nail polish went on really well, but I did have to apply 4 coats of polish before I reached the intensity I wanted. Tough the intensity does not get as dark as the color looks in the bottle I really do love this nail polish.

Another good thing about these nail polishes is that they don't chip really fast either. I've been wearing this one for a few days now and they still haven't chipped. This means great quality for a small price.
The nail polishes cost about €6 each where I got them, and they are available in the UK (suggested retail price £2.99) and you can get them online as well :)

Have you tried polishes of this brand before?

MAC Semi Precious Collection

No comments:
Hi everyone,

I've been to MAC yesterday to get some new products and I knew that there was a new collection that had arrived. I already had a little sneek peak before the collection came in the stores and I immediately knew what I was going to get. I got one of the mineralize eye shadows. Tough the blushes and the mineralize skinfinishes looked amazing my wallet didn't really allow me to buy a little more from the collection, because i found myself needing some other products as well

I got the mineralize eye shadow in Mineral Mode.

This is what the packaging of the Mineralize eye shadows looks like:

Honestly, I thought that this eye shadow would be to silver, but when I went to the MAC store again and got to swatch it it really was more like a pink coppery color. 

Here are some swatches:

The first swatch comes from the more white part of the eye shadow; the second one from the darkest part of the eye shadow and the last one is the entire eye shadow mixed all together.

See how gorgeous that color is? I love it so much..

I think I'll be getting one of the lipsticks as well and I might  pick up a blush or a mineralize skinfinish as well :)

This is what the rest of the collection contains:

What do you want to get from the Semi Precious Collection?
