Beauty Quote

Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.
Gwyneth Paltrow. And she's damn right!

H&M Spring Collection

Gisele Bündchen is the new face of the H&M Spring Collection. The collection mainly consists of dresses and jumpsuits, one-piece clothing. It has a seventies flair over it, and there are many long dresses and skirts (Think bohemien chiq) It's in fresh colors and you see lots of flowers, of course you have to think of spring. Most items are already available in store, but some exclusive items are only available from march 17. So go and have a look!

Review: Tony & Guy dry shampoo

It was a coincidence a bought this Refreshing Dry Shampoo from Toni&Guy, because i normally use a different one. But it was sold out and the saleslady suggested me this one. It's a bit expensive, €9,50, but she was really excited about it and i thought, why not? I really needed dry shampoo!

It's easy to use, just read the instructions and you're off. Shake well and spray your hair, especially the roots.

The smell is okay, not worse, not good-good, but that doesn't have to. And the texture is great. It's not a white powder like most dry shampoos. I have dark hair, and sometimes it looked pale because of the white powder, but that's not the case with this one. I only use dry shmpoo for my bangs, because that's the first thing that gets greasy, in just one day or less. But i used this dry shampoo for all my hair, and it did a great job!

Review: The lipfinity lip tint pen

Yes, it's a mouth full. I present... The lipfinity lip tint pen from Max Factor.

Omg! This is an amazing product. For a while i've been searching for a good lipstick in deep red. Mostly it just wasn't my color. Some weeks ago i found a good lipstick, but it wore off after half an hour or something. So my quest continued. I was looking for any long lasting lipstick, and this is what i found. I bought Passion Red. After 5 minutes i was in love with it! It doesn't even feel like a lipstick. You really have to color it on.

After 1 coat

After 6 (!!) hours

You can apply different coats, but i think that's more for the pink colors. My lips did feel a bit dry, because the tint gets in your lips, it doesn't leave a coat, but you can perfectly use a lipgloss over it. You can kiss your boyfriend without leaving any stains on his lips. But after eating you have to apply one coat again. There is still a bit color on your lips, but it wears of, which is logical. And it only costs 11,50 euro. Conclusion: A great product!

* I have sush tiny-winy lips :')

Blue eye make-up

Finally a day off, so i can experiment with make-up. I did a bleuish make-up. It 's not for everyday, because it has a blue eyeliner. If you change that to a black one, it could be an everyday make-up. Really cute when you have a blue top on in the same colors.

First picture is just a base, beige. I used a pearl eyeshadow from Bourjois, color beige-rosé. I always use this for a base, or just like that. It's a pretty color anyway.

Second i used the palet from Claire's. The quality isn't that good, especially for the lighter colors. But the blue is good, it stands out, just like it has to. The color most pops out on my eyelashes and the arc of my eyes. A classic method. I also used it under my eye.

Third, i did a brown in the arc of my eye, to give some more depth. I used the eyeshadow from H&M. I love the make-up from H&M, it's cheap and it's really pigmented.

And fourth, used a liquid eyeliner from Hema. That's a dutch company, has a lot of thing, and doesn't cost much. I love liquid eyeliners. I had to practice a lot, but now i can't miss it anymore!

Oh, and i didn't use mascara, because i'm going for a swim tonight, and don't wanna look like a panda... But as all off you know, mascara is essential!

Vintage handbag

So i bought a new handbag. It's a vintage one, only 6 euro. Isn't that great :) In the second hand shop (also bought a talking pikachu for my cat, he still doesn't understand why it talks when he's playing with it :D) I found a sugar cube in it, i can imagine this handbag is being carried by a granny, when she goes to a tavern with her friends, to have a good old chat.

"I sea you" nailpolish

Shopping spree! <3 And i bought new nail polishes! One i tried immediateley. It's a blueish green (like we say in dutch, appelblauwzeegroen) a color you don't see very often, but i like it! I'm curious about the comments i'm going to get. Do you like it? It's from Catrice and the color is called I sea you, it costs around 2,50 euros. It already looked good with 1 layer, which i like, but i always use 2 layers, just to be sure.

Love song

The xx - Islands

I'm going to bed on this friday night, but first i wanna show you one of my favorite songs. It's the song of me and my boyfriend, means a lot to us. Just listen to the lyrics. Now i'm gonna have sweet dreams, hope you have too xxx

I bought a jumpsuit today, and i just f***ing love it! This time i combined it with high heels and a classy necklace, but my boyfriend can't wait to see me in this with my adidas sneakers. I do look a bit fat in this, but i don't mind. It would be silly of me to not wear clothes anymore that i love, because i look a size bigger. When you feel good, you look good!

Necklace, jumpsuit and shoes - H&M

Oooh, i'm wearing pants... And i wouldn't anymore... But this is an exception! :)

"Granit" nail polish

Got this nail polish a while ago, but didn't try it on, 'till now. It's a dark grey, a really pretty color. Black is so dark, which i sometimes like, but this color is a good alternative, especially for who doens't dare to wear black. The color is called Granit.
It takes 2 layers, cause the first layer is transparent. It was a cheap nail polish, but whit the second layer it looks very good. I didn't use a base coat, too lazy...

The saleslady wanted me to buy another one, it was 3 for the price of 2. But i first want to see if it's a good nail polish. Well, for that price it was a good buy anyway, it was like 3 euro.

My wannahaves

There are 3 things that i really really want, but are way too expensive... Maybe one day...

The Nixon Chalet Watch: Saw this in the store with no price tag on, and all the other watches had a price that was reasonable. So i was happy because i finally found a beautiful watch i could afford, i thought... 'till i asked. It was more expensive than the rest :( So this one is still on my wanna have list.

My  next two wanna haves are classics, every women should want these ;) 

 Chanel Classic Flap Bag: I. Wanna.

Louboutin Shoes: <3
