Catrice Intensive Eye Wet & Dry Shadow review

Hi sweeties! Remember a few weeks back when I hauled my newest Catrice Intensive Eye Wet & Dry Shadows? I wanted to have them because they're going out of the assortment. I have been playing around with them and I have been wearing the colours, but I haven't done a review yet. So that's what I'm going to do today. But first, take a peak at these beauties! 

080 Please Gold the line

050 Lunch At Tiffany's

These colours are breathtaking, so so beautiful! Also, I like the packaging, the packaging is plastic with beautiful coloured letters on it (and the colours actually change when you move it in the sunlight, it's stunning).

The good thing is that they can be used both wet and dry. Now when they're dry, the pigmentation is nice already but when used wet, it's like "BOOM"!

The pigmentation looks great right? I love the colours! 
The picture below is a picture of how my makeup looks using these two eyeshadows when they're dry. The gold colour is on my lid and the other one is in my crease. I love to wear this on a daily basis. Most of the time I use these two eyeshadows in combination with each other but you can of course always use different eyeshadows as well! 

What do you think? Do you like it?
Thanks for reading! Stay safe!

PS Tomorrow is my birthday, so I'll try to post 2 blogposts like every Tuesday and Thursday, but I can't pormise anything since I won't be home the whole day!

OOTD: Wine red

Hi! How are you? I'm enjoying the weather today! I have another outfit of the day for you! Today, the weather has been very nice and hot, but there has been a bit of sudden rain. Dark clouds are coming up again so just to be safe we decided to take outfit pictures inside today!

Today I'm wearing a black and white outfit with gold detais. My pants and shoes are black but my top and clutch are white. The accessories that I'm wearing are gold - the buttons on my shirt are gold as well! Cute detail!

E.L.F. beauty haul!

Hello you sweeties!
Last week I've been impatiently waiting for my latest order to arrive home. Normally I only get clothes online, but last week I placed my very first makeup order. I wanted to get some makeup from e.l.f. for quite a while so I grabbed the opportunity. Here are the items that I got:

Elf eyebrow kit in "Ash"

Elf blush in "Candid Coral"

Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick in "In the nude"


144 piece bright eyeshadow palette

144 piece neutral eyeshadow palette

I'm very happy with all the items I got (they've been on my wishlist for quite a while) and I'm excited to try them all out and review them for you! Especially the palettes look breathtaking to me! Nearly 300 new colours! Wow!

Reviews will be up soon! Thanks for reading!

July favourites

Hi you guys! July has come to an end so today I want to show you my favourite products of this month! It has been a pleasant and very hot month.

The first two items are both by Essence, and they're both face products. First, I have my all about matt fixing compact powder, which is an oil absorbing powder. I have used this a lot of times this month! You can't see the powder and you can't see oil. Amazing!

Next I have my shimmer powder called "Tropical heat". It's from the "Ticket to paradise" collection and it's especially pretty on days like these when the sun shines a lot. The sparkles that are revealed when the sunlight hits your face is breathtaking! Often, I just wear this with a little powder and some mascara. Done!

As you know, I got a new haircolour this month. Blonde. The only problem is that bleaching damages like crazy. My hair was damaged already from the many different hair colours that I had.
In order to keep it alive and healthy, I took very special care of my hair. This Kérastase hair oil is one of the products that I use for my hair.

My last favourite of this month is coloured mascara! Ah, I love this! I think I'm going to get many many more colours - maybe purple and green?

What were your favourites this month? Thanks for reading!

Weekly Diary

Hello! Time for another weekly diary! This week hasn't been very busy so it's not going to be a very long post! 

 We had a lot of royal news this week: on Sunday we got our new king here in Belgium and on Monday Kate Middleton gave birth to a son! How adorable! 

This week the weather has been quite good. Well, it's been bloody hot! Of course me and some friends went to the pool to stay cool! One day, the weatherforcast said it was going to be very bad, stormy weather so we stayed at home. But no rain came. No storm came. What to do? Instead of going to the pool (it really wasn't worth the one hour ride with our bikes), we decided to make cupcakes! I have never EVER in my life made cupcakes before so this was a very nice experience. I love it so much! I think I want to do this for living. Seriously.

I've been buying a lot this week. Books, beauty or makeup stuff, school stuff, clothes, just everything. Time to start saving a little bit again! I have one order left to be delivered and then I'm done!

And now... Quite a bit of food! Lots of fruits, but lots of yummy other (less healthy) stuff! 

How was your week? Did you have a good one?
Thanks for reading! Stay safe!

OOTD: Leopard

Hi everyone! I'm back with another little outfit post for you guys! 
These pictures were taking yesterday, it was suppost to be a rainy day but we didn't see or feel any raindrops! It was - again - very very hot outside. I went to a friend and we made cupcakes and did a little bit of shopping after that. 

The outfit is quite simple. I have a lot of gold and white going on, I love that combination. First, I'm wearing a white tank top from H&M (I think), it has gold buttons and it's adorable. I'm also wearing a white hair flower from H&M.
The skirt I'm wearing has leopard print on it, which is quite cute and it also matches the gold very well. Speaking of gold, besides the buttons of my top, my necklace (from Bershka) and my ring (from H&M) are gold as well!

Cupcake time! Just for fun...

Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick review

Hello! How are you all doing? Today I have another lipstick review for you! This time, I'm reviewing "Violine Strass", one of the gorgeous lipsticks that Bourjois came out with in their "Rouge Edition" line.

There have been so many good reviews out there of so many different lipsticks that I didn't know what to get anymore. I did know that a lot of the (positive) reviews were about "Rouge Edition" lipsticks, so I went ahead and grabbed this colour. I didn't want a pink or peachy lipstick because I have way too many of those and I never use them anyway. So I went for a colour that I didn't have yet.


The packaging of this lipstick is rather simple. It comes in a black tube and says "Bourjois". On other sides of the lid, it says "Rouge Edition". The bottom shows you which colour the lipstick is, that's smart, that way you don't have to open it to see what colour it is. This is especially handy when you put your lipsticks up side down in a box when you store them.

"Violine Strass" is the colour that I got.

This is what the colour looks like, it looks dark red and dark purple to me. If you read my review on the new Kate Moss for Rimmel London lipstick that I got recently, you'll know that this colour is similar, it's slightly different in tone. That one looks more red (like red wine) and this one looks more purple.

Lightly swatched (wanted to be extra careful with this beauty and I also had to take pictures so I didn't want to smudge anything yet)...

Ta-daa! Gorgeous, isn't it?! The lipstick has a very nice texture. It's easy to apply, you don't need a lot and it feels so soft on your lips, nice creamy stuff!

Full face! Doesn't it make me look more adult? And no, I did not change my hair to another colour again, these pictures were taken before I went back to blond hair!

Thanks for reading! Have a lovely day!
