Your daily dose of Kourtney Kardashian #3






Right after Lauren Conrad, Kourtney Kardashian is my favourite style icon. She can pull any look off and she dares some quirky look as well which I love. She's so tiny and beautiful I really think she could wear a plastic bag, she would still look amazing! I really like her new bangs, they look really good on her and I'm thinking of that hair do for september (even LC got bangs!)

Instalife #11 End of my studies


Hi girls! I'm sorry I have been really missing in action lately, this week was the last week of my internship at Make Up For Ever Belgium. It was such a great experience, I can't believe how quickly it went by. Now I have one week left to write my mémoire which will mark the end of my PR studies. I'm really excited to finally finish my studies and I am now at a crossroad in my life which is both scary and exciting at the same time! I remember Lauren Conrad saying "For the first time in a really long time I really don't know what's next " and this is exactly the state of mind I'm in nowadays. It's time to leave the nest, get to work and start building my adult life! Here's a few things I have been up lately. Wearing bright lipstick is my new make-up obsession, on the picture I wear Aqua Lip Pencil N19 by Make Up For Ever / I received a lovely parcel from Bourjois with tons of new goodies for this summer, I'm so excited to try eveything! / The perks of working as a PR beauty intern, being surrounded by make-up all day/ I have already started to pack for my vacays although I'm not leaving soon, I'm just over the moon excited, I need some rest-playa-food-tan.

Disappointing products #3


I'm not one to complain a lot...no who am I kidding? I love to complain, I think it's because I live so near to Paris I have this little unsatisfied taste in my mouth all the time. C'est la vie! Today was the perfect day to write this post : we're in May and not only we got snow until March but now the weather is rainy and really mediocre and not only that but I have to write my memoire... which leads to me spending hours on Tumblr postponing this painful writing.  It does happen when I'm completely over the moon in love with a product but I do find myself very disappointed at times too. Here's my #3 post on my disappointing products
Benefit Posie Tint : One of the first product I bought from Benefit back in the days. I was so excited at this idea of a lip/cheeks tint that would instantly give me that poppy fresh natural healthy look but not really, it stains so badly on my skin and gives my pink marks all over my cheeks. Probably I'm not using it the right way? Anyways, I love Benefit products but this one I was really disappointed with.
Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Deep Pore Cleanser : I mentioned this product in a previous make-up video haul, unfortunately if you don't speak french it might be difficult for you to watch them. I bought this without reading any reviews (which I normally always do!) because the packaging was really attractive (I'm really weak isn't it?). It is supposed to cleaning your pores and sting a little bit to make your skin tighter. I was expecting it to have an alcohol smell but not that intense. It's too much, I could get drunk just by smelling the product. I have tried to use it and not breathe but it's just too much effort at night.
Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water : I received this from Newpharma.be as a part of a little surprise box (I'll be writing about it soon) and of all the products this is the one I was so excited to try. Well, this was by far the biggest disappointment I've had in years. I love Nuxe and I have try an other of their micellar water before (the green tea one) but this one is so horrible, I can't cope with the "old rose" overpowering smell it has. I hate the smell so much I can't even try it on my face.

Je ne suis pas du genre à me plaindre...non j'déconne, j'adore ça. C'est surement le petit côté "parisien" en moi. En plus c'est la journée parfaite pour écrire un article bougon, on est en plein mois de mai et il fait froid mais bon, limite je commence à avoir l'habitude maintenant et en plus je dois écrire mon mémoire et j'ai envie de tout faire, sauf ça (d'où l'écriture de cet article). C'est rare que je sois vraiment déçue avec un produit mais parfois, trop is te veel et je suis super déçue surtout quand j'y ai mis le prix. Voici ma petite liste des disappointing products #3.
Benefit Posie Tint : Le produit Benefit girly par excellence. La vendeuse me l'avait bien vendu à l'époque, du genre "moi je l'utilise le soir avant d'aller dormir pour avoir bonne mine, c'est hyper naturel comme rendu, je m'en passe pas.." Et ben, moi je m'en passe volontier. Il me fait des tâches roses sur les joues du genre qui apparaissent une fois que tu es partie de chez toi sans maquillage de secours, il donne une teinte à peine voyante à mes lèvres et file complètement entre mes ridules...bref, un produit sans intérêt selon moi qui prend la poussière dans mes tiroirs. 
Formula 10.0.6 Totally Clean Deep Pore Cleanser: Le packaging un peu "american-girly-cool"  m'avait séduit et dès l'ouverture du produit ce fût une belle déception. L'odeur d'alcool est tellement forte que je pourrais être saoule juste en respirant le produit une minute. Dommage car je trouve qu'en soit il purifie assez bien (avec la dose d'alcool présente en même temps c'est pas difficile). J'ai essayé de l'utiliser en me bouchant le nez, mais ce n'est pas pratique donc bye bye!
Nuxe Eau Démaquillante Micellaire : J'ai reçu ce produit dans une boîte surprise de la part de NewPharma.be et j'étais vraiment excitée de pouvoir tester cette eau micellaire. J'avais déjà testé un démaquillant Nuxe à base de thé vert qui étais assez agréable mais là....horreur! L'odeur de "vieille rose de mamie" est juste imbuvable. Je ne l'ai même pas testé sur ma peau tellement l'odeur me donne des frissons de dégoût. Le produit ne doit pas être mauvais en lui même mais il y a comme ça certaines odeurs qui ne passent pas. Donc toodles le démaquillant Nuxe!

Gone, gone, gone



I'm obsessed with this song at the moment. It brightens my mood everytime I listen to it :)
I love the lyrics too, they're just full of love and hope (cheesy but true!)

Wishlist #11




1. Dior Gel top coat Because a friend of mine tried it and apparently it makes your nail polish last a good whole week without a chip. I've never tried anything "gel" for my nails so I hope this will be good! 2. Bourjois BB Bronzing cream and bronzing primer (far left and far right) I think they're available in Belgium now, I NEEd to get my hands on the BB Bronzing Cream and Bronzing primer as soon as I can. I love anything that bronzes and I love Bourjois. These two are right up my alley. 
3. China Glaze Neons The new neons from China Glaze, of course these are on my wish list. I'm a sucker for anything Neon and I'm not sure what shades I'll buying as they all look so perfect for summer! 4. Erborian BB cream I swatched this when I was working as a student at a beauty counter this winter and I loved the coverage. It is a bit on the pricy side but I'm really curious how it is.

Eylure false lashes ♥



Eylure Naturalities 101 - DI (*)

One of my favorite thing to do when I get all glammed up, is probably to wear false lashes. If well applied, they give you the most flawless lashes, brightens your glance and make you feel so glamorous. I'm a sucker for false lashes and my favourite brand is by far Eylure. It's cheaper than Mac and the quality is just as good. They feel so comfortable to wear and they're very light as well. For a first date or a night out with the girls, the 101 are my go-to whenever I don't want an overdone look. They aren't over the top but you still get that glam result at the end. I know that a lot of girls don't know to apply them and It may seem impossible at first but I swear that with a bit of practice, loads of Youtube tutorials and the most important, patience, you'll be able to apply false lashes too! Once you go false lashes, you can't go back!

Si il y a bien une chose dont je raffole, ce sont les faux cils. Si j'avais le temps et surtout de la patience le matin j'en porterais tous les jours (Un peu comme les filles de Jerseylicious, sans les fringues vulgaires). Du plus naturel au plus extravagant, il y a pour tous les goûts. Le faux cil c'est LA touche glam' par excellence. Parfait pour un dîner romantique avec son amoureux ou pour une soirée entre filles, il donne cette petite touche extra glam à votre makeup (si bien appliqué!). Ma marque préférée et sans hésiter Eylure. Moins cher que les faux cils Mac, avec une qualité Mac. Que demander de plus? Sur les photos, je porte les faux cils Eylure Naturalities 101, les plus naturels de la gamme. La marque Eylure se trouve dans les magasins DI (entre 6 et 9 euros selon les faux cils, par exemple, la collection Girls Aloud ou Katy Perry coûte un peu plus cher que la gamme de base) Certes, au début la pose du faux cils pourrait en décourager plus d'unes, mais avec un peu d'entraînement, beaucoup de vidéos tuto Youtube et surtout de la patience, on y arrive et on y prend très, très vite goût. Vous voilà prévenue!

How do you feel about wearing false lashes?

AVIS AUX BLOGUEUSES BEAUTé. J'ai besoin de votre participation pour un petit sondage (5 questions) sur la relation entre les agences de RP/marques et vous! Cela m'aidera dans la rédaction de mon TFE. C'est anonyme et cela ne prend que quelques minutes....


MERCI!!!


Bourjois Faux & Fabulous Tattoo ♥



I love these Bourjois Faux & Fabulous tattoo. There's so 90's yet very trendy. My favourite were the "Miss Couture" set with the florals and cute girly quotes. I'm not a tattoo girl at all but I find this to be so much fun as you know it's ephemera. Don't apply it thinking you can get rid of it like this though, it has a really good staying power and you need to rub it hard with an oily makeup remover to get it off.

What do we think ladies? Fake tattoo, faux and fabulous or faux and hideous?

Your daily dose of Lauren Conrad #2





Yes, I stalk all of her appearances, looks, hair do and so on :D
My two favourite looks are the sleeveless black and grey dress and the casual "going to the airport" with the light jeans (so gorge!) The bright pink lips is looking so good on her, I will try to find a matching lipstick.

My life on Instagram # 10 Spring is here!


Spring has sprung for good. Nothing feels more amazing than the weather we have right now. It was about time, my H&M sandals were getting all dusty waiting for the good weather to finally arrive. To celebrate this weather, I have been wearing neon nails, pink dresses, sandals and light weighted BB creams. Also I have fell in love all over again with The Oc as mentionned in a previous post.
