Winterskin Wonders

The cold is slowly passing and as I am writing this I can see the sun shining through my window. Winter (and the period as it comes to an end) for me marks a time where I am battling dryness on every aspect. With all the wind (and the fact that I dye my hair) my hair gets dry and the split-ends seem to double every second. My legs bear incredible resemblance to the driest desert (cracks and all) and my face is just not as elastic as I would like it to be. Luckily for us we are alive in a time where all these incredible people have invented several options to battle these dry spots. So today I want to share with you my favourite products to battle winterskin.

NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette

If I would have to describe myself spontaneous would not necessarily be one of the words I would use. Yet, when it comes to buying make-up I guess you could say my behaviour is very spontaneous. Imagine this, I was on my way to my mother’s, I found myself at the train station with a little time to spare so there and then I decide that it would be the perfect moment to purchase the NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette. So I rushed to the store risking missing my train just because I had decided in a split second that I needed this. I cannot say that I have not had my eye on this palette ever since one of the only Dutch vloggers I follow (DisforDazzle) showed it in one of her vlogs.

Wednesday Reviews #12 L’Oréal Skin Expert Pure Clay Masks

At times you need a little me-moment and for me those moments are best spend pampering myself. So I try to plan a little me moment every week in which I treat myself with a good thorough facial cleanse and finish with a facial mask. Now L’Oréal launched their Skin Expert Pure Clay Masks a while back and at first I was a bit sceptical. The way they advertise the products is that each of the three types has their own function and that it is best to use all three in different areas. The reason why I was sceptical had to do with the price. Luckily I found them on sale online a while back and I decided, why not?

A Quick and Easy Make-up Look

I have posted a lot already about make-up and the products which I use and love. So today I want to share with you an easy and quick look that I created for this blog. I follow a lot of talented beauty bloggers and vloggers on Instagram and what not and while I will probably never be able to create the masterpieces they make I still think that easy make-up looks should not be overlooked.

Wednesday Reviews #11 Miracle Worker

It has been a while since I last posted a Wednesday Reviews but after using this product for a while I could not stand to not share it. I would not say that my skin is dry or oily. However, not that the temperatures have dropped and the wind can be icy cold, I do like to give it some extra treatment. This is why today’s post is dedicated to L’Oréal Extraordinary Oil.

Zoeva En Taupe Eyeshadow Palette

When I lived in the USA one thing that I got to experience was Black Friday. When I first heard of the concept it seemed kind of weird. After celebrating a day of being thankful you would go out to the stores and spend a lot of money on sales? But hey who am I to turn down a good deal. For some reason though Dutch stores have responded to these American Black Friday sales by hosting their own Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, which to me makes even less sense. Normally I do not pay a lot of attention to these deals. However, this year I came across the website of Douglas and saw that they had 25% off almost all their products. Weak as I am I had to check it out and the Zoeva En Taupe Eyeshadow palette was one of the things I bought.
