What I got for my birthday

What I got for my birthday

Hi everybody,dear readers and loyal subbies,

Finally I am going to share what I got for my birthday.  Wieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I just love reading and seeing these sort of blogs/ videos,  therefor I wanted to post this one. I really had a good day and felt really spoiled. If you want to read what I did for my birthday click here.

Let the sharing started!

 

Avanca Wireless Headset– I just love this gift. I love listening to music whether I am commuting, working or going to the gym. Because I listen to music a lot, it is important too me to have a good quality and functional headset.  Also I noticed the one I had was getting a little tired. So I thought lets put this on my wishlist. And I got it!

The reason that I wanted a wireless headset was that I did not want any wires running in front of me. With the wired headset I usually would pull my headset out  of my ears when I was rowing. Very annoying. These headsets just feel so lightweight and they look quite fashionable in my opinion and they have a good sound quality to them.

Hunkemoller giftcards – Hunkemoller is one of the biggest chains in the Netherlands to buy bra’s and as I am in need to get some new ones, this is very greatly appreciated. Is it just me, but buying bra’s is quite expensive. The woes of being a woman.

MAC Experience – This was so much fun!! My sis got me this present. So for an hour the MAC makeup artist did my face. She started with some questions such as skin type what I liked etc. Also this deal included I could get € 60 worth of product. Which is pretty sweet! This is such great gift and a great way to try out products.

Amazon gift cards– Who does not like a Amazon gift card. You can choose whatever you like. I am still contemplating what to get. But I am sure I will figure it out any time soon. Or I will just collect these cards and then do a combined splurge.

Necklace and Bracelets – I already showed this one in a previous post. I got a 0pretty necklace and bracelets from my friend J!  Want to read about this post click here.

Stationary plus matching post- its– This is a very useful pressie.  I can use this one to write some thank you notes. And the post its are very useful to leave some reminder notes. Such as must take out garbage !!  I love the prints on the stationary very pretty.

I hope you all liked this post and thank you for reading. As always feel free to leave a comment!  Until next post friends!

Etos Face haul + first impression

Etos Face haul + first impression

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

It is haul time!!  I have not hauled in a long time! And today is all dedicated to Etos face products. Lately I have noticed that Etos is re-branding a lot of their own in-store items.   They have done so much on their packaging and styling. So about two weeks ago, I could not resist picking these items up because on first impression these items felt gorgeous.

  • Etos Blush in 005 Wild Sunset
  • Etos Contour in 001 Light/ Medium
  • Etos Bronzer in 001 Light Medium
  • Etos Highlighter in 001 Gold

These items are very soft to the touch. So buttery soft. The pigmentation on all  are good except the highlighter. Also the the highlighter is very powdery and goes on patchy.  So the crucial thing is, would I repurchase> Or get the blushes in the different colors ? Yes! I would most definitely! I am very Pleased with these items!  Let me know if you would like me to try some more of their products. Maybe lips?

Thank you all again for dropping by and as always feel free to leave a comment. Or follow me via the wordpress follow button or BlogLovin button. Until next post

Becca’s Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop

Becca’s Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

I thought it was time to add a new highlighter to my makeup collection. And after watching a lot of reviews of this beauty, I could no longer resist purchasing the Jaclyn Hill for Becca Cosmetics, Champagne Pop Highlighter. Try and saying that 3 times in a row!  As Becca is not easy to find in the Netherlands, I purchased this highlighter at the store Babassu (www.babassu.n) for € 43. Yes it is a lot of money for a highlighter but it is so pretty.  Let me show you why.

The highlighter is presented in a gorgeous rose gold box with little champagne bubbles on it. So I do think they have put a lot of thought into the design of this product. The highlighter comes in a nice sturdy packaging. I have to give Beccca props for that one! I love the black and the silver colored disk in the middle. The only downside I think is that I have a hard time opening this beauty.

 

Once you open the case of this highlighter you are greeted by  rose goldeny / sparkly highlighter. I have no words to really describe the highlighter. The highlighter  swatches so beautiful and is very pigmented. Let me show  you some swatches.

Concluding with the swatches ends this post.  I am so pleased and happy that I purchased this product. So my question to you is , would you purchase this highlighter? Please share any thoughts you have on this highlighter. And as always if you liked this post please like or subscribe to Thumbelinaslifestyle.com or follow  ,me via BlogLovin.
