MAC: Sized to go

No comments:
Hi everyone,
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?

New York Color: Eyelash curler

No comments:
Hi everyone,
It's been a while since I last made a post but since 4 July I've moved to the Belgian coast.
I'll be staying here for like a month as I have a job here for the month of July :)

Moving on to the blog post, the New York color eyelash curler.
I have been looking for an eyelash curler for quite some time now and I hadn't found a decent one yet..
Then I heard a lot of good things about the Shu Uemera one but it is quite expensive.
(The Shu Uemera eyelash curler costs about $19.00)

So.. I decided to try a cheaper one first and see if I like what it does to my lashes and that's when i found the one from NYC.

This one costs only $2.99 or €2.99 and works really well for me.

Against all expectations it only took me like 5seconds to perfectly curl my lashes.
So for now i won't be needing to splurge and get the more expensive one from Shu Uemera.

I hope this was helpful for you guys and let me know which one works best for you.
