Vera Wang: Princess

No comments:
Hi everyone,
Today I want to share with you one of my favorite parfumes: Vera Wang Princess.
I first discovered this in the airport when I was on my way back home from Australia, but decided not to get it yet. After a while I started regretting that I didn't buy it and started looking for the perfume here in Belgium. It was nowhere to be found! No matter what store I tried, I just couldn't find it anywhere. Until one day, the pretty bottle found me :) My mom knew I was looking for this parfume and looked for it on line. She found it and bought it for me as a gift. I couldn't have been happier the day that box arrived! :) Yay!

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR : On and on Bronze

No comments:
Hi everyone,
I now I'm really late on this, but I'm still going to blog about this product.
The Maybelline Color Tattoos have been out for quite a while now and they've slowly been coming to Europe now. One thing I did notice is that they changed the names for what seem to be the same shades as in America. The one that I have is called 'On and on Bronze' which is the same as 'Bad to the Bronze' in the US if I'm not mistaken. All the other names are diffrent as well. I have no idea why?

L'Oréal: Body-Expertise Nutribronze

Hi everyone,
Since it's already spring, and summer's coming closer and closer (finally!) I thought I might just get my tan started already :) I can't hurt to pretend it's already summer and sunny weather right? :) I decided to try something new and so far I really like it. I've been trying the Body-Expertise Nutribronze from L'Oréal. This lotion promises a gradual (natural) bronzing proces and is supposed to hydrate your precious skin as well.

I have to say that the result looks really natural to me and other tanning products I've tried before often made me (and my sheets) look orange, which is never good unless you're and Umpalooma.. The lotion also has a nice smell, but after a while you do still get a little bit of that tanning smell you always get when you use self tanners. There's no escape to that sadly enough. The result you get is good enough that I can ignore the little smell that comes with it :)
What kind of self tanning products do you use?

MAC Pop-up Store Belgium!

No comments:
Today I found some news I really had to share with all the Belgian MAC lovers out there!
MAC is opening their first pop-up store in the Benelux and it's really close to where I live. It's in the Woluwe Shopping Center. Yaaaay! So no need to go to the pro store in Antwerp every time anymore. The pop up store opened this May, and as of September the Woluwe Shopping Center will get it's own permanent make up paradise :) Can I get a whoop whoop?! As you can see I'm really excited about this news and I hope some of you are as well! I'm a huge MAC fan :)

What's your all-time favorite MAC product?

Hi everyone,
Since march Philosophy is available in Belgium, yay!, it was supposed to be here in february but because of some distribution problems we had to wait until march :)
However :) Philosophy was already available in the Netherlands and so I got my Purity cleanser a little earlier. I've been trying this out the past few months to see if it is any good, and i'm in love :)

1 comment:
Hi everyone,
I know i'm a little late with a review about an eyeshadow palette from the Shop Mac, Cook Mac collection, but I decided to do it anyway :)
When I heard that Hypnotizing would be repromoted with this collection I knew I just had to get that palette! So many youtubers raved about this eyeshadow that I had to see for myself :)

The eyeshadow Hypnotizing (Frost) came in the Shop and Drop palette along with Sugar Snack (Matte), Power Boosted (Veluxe Pearl) and Shop and drop (Satin).

Bourjois Healty Balance: Unifying Powder

No comments:
Hi everyone,
Lately, I've been trying out this new powder just to unify my skintone. I don't use foundation that much because i do feel pretty confident about my skin eventhough I do get breakouts as well. But since I have a lot of freckles it just looks really unnatural whenever i try to use foundation. I will use a MAC Studio Fix powder in the shade NW25 which works for the most part of the year. But lately I've really gotten a lot paler and the Studio Fix powder is just a little to dark.

So I was on the market for a new face powder and saw that Bourjois came out with a small line called healthy balance. It contains a foundation, the powder and a concealer.
I decided to try the Bourjois Healthy Balance unifying powder :) and I have to say it's amazing! I've been wearing it every single day and it just makes my skin look so much more radiant and glowy. I wear the shade 53 Light Beige (beige clair).

The powder also uses Asian fruit therapy. Sharon fruit for hydrating and Yuzu fruit for anti-shine. It doens't clog your pores either and is supposed to give you a matte finish and boosted radiance that lasts up to 10hours. I've fallen in love :)

Would you try it?

MAC Iris Apfel: Flamingo

1 comment:
Hi everyone,

Last week the Iris Apfel collection came to Belgium and some of the lipsticks sold out within hours. Since the collection is only available in pro stores and there's only one of those in Belgium they went fast! I  to get the ones I wanted and ended up getting the 2 last ones that were left. Yay!

I haven't been too excited about the latest MAC collections but this was one that made me go to Antwerp to get the lipsticks the day the collection came out. I had heard a lot about them on the internet and since they sold out on the mac website really really fast, I knew they wouldn't last long in the one pro store we have here.
