The Balm has done it again. The cutest palette out there! How 'bout them apples is their new lip & cheek palette filled with creamy nude and more bright shades. The texture of these blushes/lipsticks are amazing! I much prefer using these as cream blushes for the glowy finish and the high pigmentation. As lipsticks although they're pretty - dot get me wrong - they are not as long lasting as I wish they were.
This palette is everything I have been wanting for a long time. A versatile cream blush palette, with a cute packaging, a good quality and some wild half naked cow boys all over my blushes. I mean, what more can you ask for? It's the perfecto travelling palette too. If you're into cream blushes, you need to get your hands on this little baby. It's available at Di drugstores in Belgium
Nothing like a negative post on a rainy monday morning, right? Haha I'm not into complaining posts but from time to time you must set the record straight and tell how you really feel about some products although it might be a little be harsh.
The first product that has let me down is the Bioderma Hydrabio Brume. I bought this with high hopes to find a good refreshing soothing water for summer, to apply on my skin in the morning or after taking up my makeup to sooth my skin. Unfortunately this product is making my skin feeling even drier and itchier than it normally is. Won't recommend this unless you have a very oily skin.
The next product on the disappointing list is the Baby Foot Exfoliant Foot Peel. I tried this a good 3 months ago, it was winter and my feet were in pretty bad shape. I was sent this to try as it's meant to peel you skin off all of the dead cells and leave your skin brand new, just like babies feet! It's such a weird process, you must put a cream all over your feet for an hour with a plastic sock that activates the product. After an hour, you just rinse the cream and wait for a week to see the results. One week after my feet started to peel like a snake losing its skin. It was plain gross and I was really shocked to see all the dead skin. The result was impressive as my feet were really smooth and looking brand new. I was so happy with the results until I started to feel that my feet were becoming overly sensitive. This product was so harsh on my poor feet it made them become super sensitive. I regret trying this product and I don't recommend you trying it. It's working but it's way too harsh for your skin!
Last on the list, the Freeman Feel Beautiful Facial Peel-Off Mask Cucumber. I usually love the Freeman masks range but this one is so awful. It's a peel off mask and it feels like glue on the skin. I don't see the point of peel off masks, my skin doesn't feel refreshed or cleaned after. Maybe it's just the peel off sensation that's not working for me though!
Hi girls! The lack of creative and actual proper post are getting a bit obvious, so I'm trying to let you know that I'm still here, working a lot but still here loving lipstick and fake tan! I'm thinking about doing a fake tan routine post or video maybe as my routine has been giving me some amazing tanning results, I feel ready for summer! Let me know if you'd be interested in hearing that!
Here's a little bit of my instalife, don't forget to follow me as it's the place where I basically show sign of life every day! I eat, breathe and live Instagram. I haven't been super crazy on the sales but I go a few bits and bots - those gorgeous Zara heels are a part of it and they'll look super Norvegian-ish cool with a maxi skirt and a crop top! Yes Cath In The City is one of my biggest inspiration ever!
Happy sunday! Sorry for the lack of post, obviously my hectic work schedule has been in the way and I feel the weekend is going by super quickly I barely have the time to catch up with my favorite tv shows, take care of my skin, relax and my weekend is basically gone! I can't even take pictures in the morning to show you some make up of the day as I wake up super early and live the apartment in 40min watch in hand. The joy of working full time, right?
Anyway, here's are my favorite cream blusher I have been loving lately. I'm a huge cream blusher aficionado as I love that extra glow touch it gives to my makeup. My favorite are the ones from Topshop as they're really long lasting and the colors are simply beautiful! I also have been using my Mac Lady Blush a lot as you can see! I love Mac cream blushes as they're more on the natural looking color palette but I do regret the fact that they're range is quite small and doesn't change with the years, a bit boring! Finally, the Illamasqua one is the most gorgeous baby pink cream blusher ever. Unfortunately I think this one is discontinued but if you're looking for a super blowy cream blusher, Illamasqua has super a gorgeous range!
Summer sales are just around the corner and I'm ready to shop! I have a few things on my wish list but as usual when you have sales in a shop you always end up buying unnecessary things. This year I really want to stick up to my wish list - yeah, right - and the first thing I was dying to get was this H&M midi black skirt with animal print on it. I actually have found it last week during pre-sales at H&M. I was so happy but the size is a bit too big so I'll have to take care of that. I also am super obsessed with these Zara platform sandals, they're super chic and will go perfecty with the midi dress. Hopefully Zara will put them on sales otherwise...I'll still get them I think haha. I also need some maxi dresses for summer, some snake spring espadrilles and this pearl necklace from Zara which I highly doubt I'll ever find but you never know...
There's nothing like a little shopping sesh with a bestie after a long week at work to change your mind and feel like 16 all over again. We had so much fun in Antwerp - which is in my opinion the coolest city in Belgium - we shopped, we ate, we laughed, we drink and shopped even more! I haven't find that many great items on sale as they officially start on July 1st here but I managed to find three summery items, two pair of shoes from H&M and one hippie trouser from Brandy Melville.
I can't wait for the real sales to start so I can shop my life away, haha! Do you have any favorite store during the sales? Except from Zara of course haha. Mine is & Other Stories, I went there and I fell in love with everything. This shop is right up my alley, the prices are a little bit more on the high end side but you get good quality too! I can't wait to go there and at Urban Outfitters too during the sales!
