Stuff that I have been recently loving! The Summer Edition!

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

I have noticed that lately I have not been posting any monthly favorites. Therefore I thought it would be nice to share some items that I have been loving at the moment. The items I will be sharing with you, will range from skincare , beauty and some lifestyle items. I am very intrigued if you like this way of letting you all know what my current faves are.

Skincare

Glamglow Instamud 60 second pore refining treatment- This product feels so good on the skin once rinsed of. If you are curious about this product, please click here for the review !

Makeup

Benefit Boeieeng Hydrating concealer in NO2– Not only is the packaging very cute this is just a very hydrating concealer. It does not emphasize my lines under my eyes which is very important since I have passed my thirties. Also it gives a nice little doze of coverage for dark circles. Plus if needed you can still top it of with another concealer.

Maybeline Fit me Matt + Poreless powder in 120 Classic Ivory – This is a powder I reach to on a daily basis. Especially when I am very lazy and want to do a very quick face of makeup i will reach for this. I have heard people talking about this being a dupe for the Laura Mercier powder. However I am unable to confirm this ,as I have not yet had the privilege to try this one out.

Rimmel Kate contour kit in 001 golden sands -I might be one of the few people on the earth who likes this product. I must say I usually use the contour powder of this kit only. The color just suits my skintone very well and does it purpose.

Maybeline Color Drama Intense velvet lip Pencil in 630 Nude Perfection -This is just a very nice lip pencil to wear with or without lipstick or glosss on top of it. In my opinion this matches very well with MAC’s Velvet Teddy.

Perfume

Anayake Tomo Perfume Roller Ball -Ok I have no idea how to describe this scent but I find it smell very spa like and very relaxing. This is a perfume I really want to purchase and it might happen very shortly.

Lifestyle

Fake plants from IKEA, Xenos and Primark -Since I integrated some greenery in my house the house just looks happier and green looks so good on white backgrounds. Just so good.

IKEA 6 Malm chest with 6 drawers with glass plate – So for a while I was looking for a new furniture piece for the tv which was not open as my previous tv furniture. After long deliberation we decided on the this piece from IKEA which I find very good value of money. The cupboard has masses of storage and looks nice, clean and elegant especially with the glass plate on it. What I also love about this item is that it can be used for a lot of different purposes: I.E storage for makeup, clothes, TV furniture and as a dresser.

Bamboo Vase from Cassa -The house style I am trying to go for is like Asian/ natural with some industrial elements in it. So this vase ties into the Asian and natural element of it. Love, Love, Love it!

Peacock cloth hooks – These hooks give so much industrial, earthy vibes. It looks so elegant but has it its purpose. We usually store our working bags here.

Once again this concludes the end of my post and if you liked this one please leave a like or a comment.

Collective make-up + hair haul + free Dove goodie bag

Collective make-up + hair haul + free Dove goodie bag

Hello readers and dear subbies,

Today I am sharing a collective make-up + hair haul with you all. I shopped at the highstreet drugstores Kruidvat, Trekpleister and Etos. In this haul you can read all about the following brands:

*Catrice *Maybeline *L’Oréal *Beyonce *Super Drug *Andrelon ( Part of Unilever) 

  • Catrice  in C01 Brave Bronze part of their Nomadic Traces Limited Editon €4.99 . Check out Catrices website here and check out this limited collection. The reason why I hovered over to this display, was their packaging of this limited edition. To me the pattern looks  very Arabic/ African and the the collection has a lot of earthy tones ( which I like)

SONY DSCSONY DSC1

This bronzer is a matte bronzer and has  a lovely sunbeam pattern in it. I have used this bronze once and I do notice that the pattern will fade quickly. My first impressions of this bronzer is really good it has a cool tone too it and I loved the way it applied to my skin. 

  • Catrice Matt nude palette € 4.99. I needed a new eye shadow palette for at my parents house and I didn’t want to spent a lot of money.   I have tried this pallet twice and I am not loving it.  The only 2 colours I semi liked, were the last darker colour. The other colours I barely noticed on my skin and they were patchy. But I will give this palette a try maybe i will change my mind about this palette. 

  • Maybeline the Nudes Palette €15.99

When I saw this palette in Trekpleister I was soooooo excited that I found it. I believe this palette has just been released in the Netherlands soo that was why I got really excited. I love the selection of matte and shimmery shades.I was really contemplating purchasing this pallet as I just bought the Catrice palette. But because I was not really impressed with that palette I decided to purchase this. I have not had the time to play with this palette so I can’t give you my opinion yet. I think you can expect a review in the near future.

  • L’Oreal Studio Matt & Messy shine free salt spray nonchalant messy look 150 ML. I have only used this pray twice and those two moments haven’t impressed yet. But I will test drive this spray a little further. I believe this spray cost around  € 5,00 however I am not sure.
  • L’Oreal Studio Line Hot& Straight 200 ml. This product I have used several times whilst blow dry my hair. I don’t have the feeling this spray is doing anything for my hair or preventing fall outs.  At the moment, the product is meh. However that feeling could still go away. 
  • Beyonce Heat Rush Eau de toilette €17.99. I told you all about my birthday haul last week. So I was browsing through the drugstore and I hovered to the Perfume section. I tested this Eau de toilette and the whole day I kept on smelling this fragrance. I was really impressed with this smell by. Soo wickedly  I decided to purchase this, in a tiny bottle of 15 ml Last friday. Ideal for my bag as my mum suggested.. I usually prefer eau de parfum but apparently the drugstore said it was not released. I purchased this fragrance for €17.99 at the drugstore Etos. I think this is a good budget alternative and it smells heavenly compared to my other wanna have perfume the Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium 3.5 /4 more expensive. The ingredients in the perfume are the following:

Alcohol, Denat, Aqua,perfume,Hydroxcitronellal,Butylphenyl,Methylpropional, Hydroxysiohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Limonene,BHT Linalool, Citronellol,Acrylates,Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters

Honestly you guys, I have no idea what these ingredients are, lol.

Super Drug  Superfruits face mask. Exfoliating  with Raspberry, Cranberry and Blueberry Fruit Extracts  This mask is intended to purify the pores and smooths skin.

  • Andrelon dry shampoo in langer fris €5.49. So this one is targeted to re-freshen your hair. So let me tell you a secret. This product is so super amazing!! When you use this product your hair does feel really clean and the smell is like hmmmm. You just keep on smelling it  during the day which I liked. 
  • Andrelon Verassend Volume € 5.49 . This dry shampoo is targeted to create more volume. All I am saying is that I am not loving this product. The smell really disagrees with me. I am not really willing to use this product again plus I did not like the feel and look of this product.

Because I purchased two Andrelon products, I received a free Dove Goodie bag. In this bag there were 3 sample size products. The bag has a nice size too it, and I think this will be good for traveling You could even bring some eye and face brushes without damaging your brush without squashing your bristles. 

So in this goodie bag there were three miniatures which are the following:

– Dove creme mousse body wash 55 ml

– Andrelon Glans Shampoo 50 ml

-Andrelon keratin hair mask 50 ml
