Maybelline: The Eraser Concealer

Concealers ... I skipped them several months ago. But I somehow return to my rituals all the time. The highlight underneath eyes just looks very nice.

But I have high hopes for a concealer. Lightweight but still providing me with a good coverage.
I used to hear really great things about one certain concealer the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer. Indeed I get where the hype is coming from but I still feel is to bit to heavy for me, personally.

A couple of weeks ago now I bought myself another well spoken concealer. Today I am reviewing it for you.
Good coverage and worth all the fuzz? Lets find out.

My life: Personal update!

The past few days I haven't been able to reach for my laptop at all. I have been really busy at work and I had to babysit the past two days as well. Making me really tired at night. Since the evening of my last update I hadn't prepared any more blogposts.

Today I am home at night and I thought it was time for a new category on my blog 'My Life'. I hope one day it will be a frequently returning blogpost for today I am presenting you the first 'My Life' blogpost.

Seems interesting? Lets have a look into my life.

Revlon: Colorburst Lacquer Balm

Lipproducts, somehow I love them to pieces but I find it always a huge struggle to find colour that exactly match to what I want.

On my last shopping trip to Antwerp there was another Revlon discount going on. 25% on each purchased Revlon product. And as usual I couldn't let this discount to pass me by.

I ended up with my Revlon Photoready BB cream and another product that has been talked about loads in bloggerworld.
The Lacquer Balm. Is it good? Lets have a look.

Catrice: Nude Illusion Foundation

Yesterdays post was about a cover product and today I am going down the same road again. And same brand as well.

Catrice and her new foundation. I first didn't want to buy this one and go for the Velvet Finish Foundation with hyaluron but some new products aren't to be found. Also this one.

I was in my local drugstore and my obsession came across again and I just purchased it.
The Nude Illusion make up by Catrice. Thoughts?

Catrice: BB cream

As summer is slowly coming to its end (I hate that) I am also coming to the end of my purchased BB creams. In my daily routine the BB creams are also less used and I am giving my foundations another go.

The last BB cream I am reviewing for you is one that I have heard supposed to be fairly good. Decent coverage, longwearing and budget. Well I like all of those claims.

BB cream by Catrice. Is it that good? Find out here.

Essence: Soo Blush, Cream to Powder blush

Not only Catrice did had some changes goitng on, Essence also changed up their assortment bit.
To be honest with you, the Essence change wasn't near as good as the Catrice change.

Although there were a few items that I really wanted to give a try. I've heard its quite a quest to get these products but I thankfully got my hands on the ones I wanted.

Today we go down the  blush road. And I am going to bring you along. Intrigued? continue reading!

Catrice: Velvet Matt Eyeshadow

When the new Catrice change came I had made up my wishlist almost instantly. Normally I go for the usual things I want to get, some lipstick or the new face products. And I always skip Catrices eyeshadow.

This time though I want the new Absolute Matt Palette (who has seen this sucker yet?) and a new range of single shadows got my attention too.

And I obviously purchased them. Today I decided to give you my thoughts on them. They are called the Velvet Matt eyeshadows.
Seems interesting? Keep reading.

There are six different eyeshadows in the velvet matt range. They variate from a light vanilla white shade to daily greys, greens, browns and a lovely burgundy shade. (I didn't pick up the baby pink shade and the green one, because I knew I wouldn't wear them.)

The packaging of the shadows is typical Catrice. But being so cheap its a fine package.

Coming to the actual testing. I instantly liked these shadows.
They feel so smooth and light. Plus they have an intense pigmentation going on. And all four colours that I own have that awesome pigmentation.
The first colour I am going to show you is Vanillaty Fair. This is shade one, a beautiful white, vanilla shade as the name suggest.
The colour is really easy to blend. And perfect to use a basecolour for the rest of the look you are creating.

The next colour is Jump Up and Brown. Again a very nice brown colour. With a somehow golden brown glow to it.
For me this a really good transition shade and once again very blendable. Also I feel you can perfectly wear this shade on its own.

Al Burgundy is my third colour. Beautiful Burgundy. -This is going to be a boring upload, since I keep repeating myself.-
Perfect for creating a purple/dark plum smokey eye. In my opinion this is the most pigmented shade of the range of shadows.

The last shade is called Welcome to Greysland. Which also makes it the last shade I have.
Daily look approved, nicely pigmented and easy to blend once again. I think you know the drill by now.

On the picture below you can see swatches of the colours I have.
I already excuse for the bad swatches made.
You can still see the nice pigmentation of all the shades. After all the testing I am sure I really am fond of these single shadows. Smooth, velvet, satin feel and a darn good pigmentation. The only very big downside of these shadows: They break way to easily and fast.
I have loads of eyeshadows and not a single one in all those years broke, these I own for a good week and one had to sadly be repaired.

Overall thought: I'm very pleased with almost everything about the new Catrice shadows. The shadows are nicely pigmented and they can be blend easily. There is close to no fall out. And all shades can of course be worn alone. Downside: Breaks way to quickly!

Tell me, what do you feel about these shadows from Catrice?

Sleek: Contour Kit

On a day to day basis I think going full contour and highlight I think isn't that necessary. But I somehow have always had some love towards it.

Especially in winter I do it way more often than in summer. Mainly because everything is so boring when its cold and I try to make my face less boring or dull, if that makes sense.

Today I am going to show with what I contour and highlight my face.
Does it seems interesting? Continue reading!

Outfit of the Day -My free Saturday-

I think for about a month I have been thinking about adding more fashion to my blog. I lately love to see and read those type of articles on other blogs as well.

Somehow I never found the time or right spot to actually try a small outfit of the day/look book.
Since I work in retail I have lost quite a few of my Saturdays. I personally don't mind at all to work on Saturdays but today was my first free Saturday in about 1,5 month.

And since I didn't have to work and I went for a small shopping trip in my small town with my mom. With that happening I decided to finally try this fashion thing and introduce you to my very first OOTD on my free Saturday.

Are you ready for a small wardrobe sneak peak.

Catrice: Metallure Limited Edition

Limited editions are always nice! Especially if they are from budget brands. But normally I don't get so excited about them. I don't know why.. Sometimes though there is this one collection that I get super thrilled about.

Recently Catrice came out with their new limited edition called Metallure.
The collection focuses on metallic looks and that of course transfers into the collection.

Today I decided to show you what I got from the collection.
So here is a little overview of that the collection includes.

Music Madness #4

Music and her influences. I love it. I to had those influences and I am still having them.
Somtimes you just can't imagine how much it can do for one persons life.

But of course it is not all about influences it is also about having fun, getting to know new bands, fall in love with some good 'oldies' you used to listen to.

Today I am therefore back with Music Madness #4.
My musical month? That, you can read here.

Mascara Review: Two in One

If I splurge on something it must be mascara. I have an overload of them. But I love those tube things so much. It is the one thing you will never see me without, besides when I go to bed.

A few days ago there was a nice deal going on in my drugstore. Discounts on mascaras of every brand.

Result? Two new mascaras and today I am putting them in the spotlight.

Revlon: Photoready BB cream

BB creams are a must for me this summer. My skin gets many more benefits from it than wearing a regular foundation.

I got my search button on and went on a search for some BB creams.
And for that I went to Antwerp. Not really, but I again found some lovely sales going on and you all agree with the ''can't resist sales'' part.

Today I am showing you what I found. BB cream by Revlon.
Interested? Continue reading.

These Catrice products are going away haul

As a lot of European beauty lovers might know. Before every winter and summer Catrice changes their collection. This time of the year the winter collection slowly is taking its place.
Lucky me already found a drugstore where a part of the new collection is already available.

But I also found a drugstore where they had a great deal going on. Every product of Catrice that has ended its life in the old collection was on sale for 1 euro each.
I kind of splurged a lot on the new collection but this deal is just couldn't pass.

And today I'm showing you the six items I got for only six euros.

New In: Jewellery

Since a bit longer then three months, I finally found myself a job. I had a horrible 9 months, yes nine months, search. My first find was perfectly fine. I had lovely colleagues but I knew that, that place wasn't the place where I would want to grow.

After a good three weeks there, a store very near me called if I might be interested in a job in their store. I decided to go on an interview and hear what pros and cons the job had. And unbelievably I got a second job offer in less then a month after almost one year of searching for a job.

I took the job because it had more pros than the other job and I am now working in a jewellery store for a bit more than two months.

Last week was the last week of a long month of summer sales. We, employees, get the change to see the sales first and put some things aside for ourselves. Also I did that and today I decided to show you the items.

Keep reading to see what they look like.
