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!!

Ciao a tutti, Hi everyone,

I've really been enjoying the sun, the beach and just laying around and getting tanned :) Oh yeah! After working a whole month I kinda needed this sunny vacation and it's already been amazing :)

As for the rest of the days.. Tomorrow me and my familly will be enjoying a day of Wellness and we'll be going to Venice as well some day soon. I'll be sure to make some beautiful pictures and share them with you all in my upcoming blog posts :)

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?
