Shoplog: Mini Tarte Spree

Every so often I come across a beauty brand which looks absolutely lovely but for some reason is not available in the Netherlands. A few years back Sephora left the Netherlands to become a more international oriented company (I never really understood the grounds of this argument but oh well). So sadly one of the brands I never got to try-out is Tarte. A few months back one of my closest friends went on a road-trip through the USA so I asked her nicely if she could bring back a few Tarte products for me. Sweet as she was she actually had to go through quite some trouble to get her hands on both products and I could not appreciate her more for it.

Revolution Golden Kiss Highlighter

I am a make-up hoarder no matter how I try to twist the facts. There is, however, one product category which exceeds all the others in my personal collection… you guessed it highlighters. Maybe it is because I love sparkly stuff or maybe it is just the effect a good highlighter has, I do not know the answer but I do know that when I saw the Revolution Golden Kiss Highlighter I just had to add it to my collection.

Smashbox All-Set Lashes Gift Set

October was a month full of celebratory activities; my sister got her Masters Degree, I got my Bachelors Degree and nevertheless it was also the month I turned 22. Each year I invite my friends over and cook for them (whether they want me to or not *evil laughter*) and after we are all stuffed and may have had one glass of wine or beer too many (who knows) we go out. This year was no different and I had an amazing birthday. One of my closest friends got me a giftcard to Douglas with a ridiculous amount of money on it. After strolling online for hours my eyes fell on this mascara giftbox and as a result I went to the store and it became the first item I purchased using the giftcard.

So today I want to talk to you about the NYX Lip Lingerie in the colour Bedtime Flirt.

Shoplog: Everyone Needs a Good Nude Palette

First of all, my sincerest apologies for not posting anything last week. I feel that every time I post an apology it has to do with me being really busy. The past weeks have been just a little bit more busy than usual. At this point I am getting ready for my board year, following a Creative Writing course and at the same time writing a B.A. Thesis (which means that, fingers crossed, I will finish my English Bachelor this year🎉) . I will be back to posting more once I finish my thesis (which btw has totally ruined Disney movies for me). So today as I am finishing my pre-final Thesis I decided it would be nice to have a distraction in the form of a blogpost.
