March flew by and it is already April . And the good news is that spring seems to be peaking through. Come on Spring don’t fail me now! Can’t wait for the warm weather and the good times to come. On another side note it means that since March has flown by it is time for some Favorites. This months Favorites contain a selection of some beauty, body and lifestyle faves. Enjoy!

Makeup

Combination Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in 053 Sorbet and Rimmel Vinyl Gloss- Ever since the first rays of sunshine started to peak thru,I have been loving a fresh bright lip. Loving the combination of a balmy lip and making it shiny with a little bit of gloss.

Combination Loreal True Match Concealer and Benefit Erase Paste- This combination gives me the best under eye coverage ans gets rid of my blue under eye circles.

Kiko Metal Fusion Blush in 0-4 A beautiful bright pink shimmery blush. It looks quite daunting in the pan but looks lively on your face. Again very fresh looking for spring!

Body

Rituals-The Ritual of Ayurveda Nurturing Shower Oil- This shower gel smells of roses and almonds. Once used your whole bathroom will smell like this. Pure heaven! Also after use your skin will feel silky smooth.

Hair

Kerastase Resistance Bain Force Architecte Shampoo and Conditioner Erosian Level 1/2- I am not a hair expert. To be quite frank , my hair is more a disaster than perfectly styled. But I must say that since I was recommended to use this hairline that it has helped my fragile hair so much. My hair looks more healthy and seems to have a bit more body to it. To be honest I regret not purchasing the products for level 3/4 erosian .

Beauty and Body Stuff I am bringing to Viena,

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

In a couple of days I will be going on my first mini break with my BF to Viena, and I cannot wait! I am already day dreaming about walking around Schönbrunn and its gardens, visit the Prater Ferris Wheel, The Stephans Dome the city centre the art museum and check out the beautiful architecture. In my head this city looks so Baroque and oldy worldly which makes it the perfect setting for a Romantic get away.

Thumbs nails of the month : KiKo Power Pro Nail Lacquer in 82

Thumbs nails of the month : KiKo Power Pro Nail Lacquer in 82

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

After some radio silence I am back with some nail loving.  Must say that my nails were sort of sad looking and it was time to jazz them up. All though some might say they are still a bit dull looking.  But I LOVE them !

The color 82  is a taupe grey color with a slight lilac undertone to it. Which I find very stunning of course.  I used the Essie first base, for my base coat followed by two layers of the nail lacquer in 82. I finished with the KiKo Gel effect top coat, which is very BOM .COM! FYI!

Thumbs up for:

Color

Pigmentation

Brush Size

Price

Fast drying

Thumbs down for:

Design ( Brush is not attached to the lid . There is an extra lid to it. Why? Don’t ask me , still trying to figure this one out. )

Overall KiKo did very well with this polish. It is a beautiful color, has lovely  pigmentation to it  and  is easy to work  with. If all the polishes from KiKo are like this,then they have a winning product!

KIKO Haul

KIKO Haul

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

I could not resist going to the KIKO store at Central station in Amsterdam when I was out and about a few weeks ago.  It  was my second time I was there and my experience of this brand is really good. The only product which for me was a let down was the beauty blender. But hey we cannot have everything I suppose .

This time I went for 6 beauty products. The original plan was to go for a highlighter but unfortunately they only sold highlighters in stick form. And that day I was not in the mood for a stick highlighter .  See how you can get suckered in when you go to KIKO. Not that it is bad. gegegge.  Anyway let me show you all the goodies I purchased:

Kiko Ever Lasting Colour lipliner in 415 a berry color.  Price 4.90 euro

Shade Fusion Trio Blush in 05  this is such a lovely soft blush and swirled together it is  a lovely mauve color. Price 10.90 euro

Power Pro Nail Laquer in 30  a stone/taupe color Price 4.90 euro

Power Pro Nail Laquer in28 a pink/ mauve color Price 4.90 euro

Gel effect Topcoat Price 4.90 euro

Beauty Games Face brush.This brush feels lovely soft and the stripling brush? is lovely and dense. I am going to see if I can use it for concealer blending. Also the great thing was that I could purchase it with 50 % discount. Yippie love a bargain. Price 7.90 euro

Kiko Haul review hit and fails

Kiko Haul review hit and fails

Hi Friends,

I thought it would be good to give you a quick overview about items I would recommend to you all to buy from Kiko. I have to say what I bought in the Kiko haul was really, really good. Click here if your are interested to read about that haul. And if you want to see the swatches of the lipsticks click here. So lets gets started.

SONY DSC

Hits

Lipsticks.   Very comfortable on the lips, smells good. Especially the matte lipstick is very nice.

The Campus Idol brush. This is very soft and dense and works like a charm for bronzer and powder.

Eyeshadow  Buttery shadow. The pigmentation is ok and it blends really nicely.

Fail

The Kiko Beauty Blender. This beauty blender is very hard, it is not very squeezable. It does make blending  makeup a little bit of a pain in the butt.

Do you have any Kiko faves to share? Please leave a comment. Until next post friends!

Thumbs nails of the month; Kiko nail laquer in 497

Thumbs nails of the month; Kiko nail laquer in 497

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

For this months Thumbs nails, I opted for one of the two polishes I bought in my Kiko haul. If you are interested in reading that one, click here.

Even though spring is here, I opted to go for the purple color. It is a purple polish with gold glitter specs in it. When I check my nails more furrow, the polish has a blue shade too it. Just gorgeous!

Overal I am so impressed with this polish. The polish glides on and is highly pigmented. If I wanted to, I could just use one layer but I wanted to use two. I finished with the Sally Hansen Gel top coat.  You all like this polish? Please leave a comment. Until next time
