H&M online haul!

Received these lovely items yesterday from the H&M online shop, i wanted to try out some different colors because i'm a black clothes addict. Usually when i go shopping i always tend to buy everything black, i don't do it on purpose but i don't know it's just a habit or something. So i thought these items would be a little bit different, let me know what you think of it!


nude pink dress with an attached belt, you can also remove this. I didn't really knew this colour would look good with my skintone, but i think it looks very cute!


Tight black floral dress, not really black so i though this was a nice alternative.


Tight black trousers/leggings with ruched detail at the bottom. And a floral top with some cute ruffle details at the shoulders.


Leopard top with ruffled shoulders and a tight black skirt.


Please let me know what you think of it & should I keep everything or return something?

MAC lipstick swatches

Finally another blogpost, i'm such a horrible blogger i know.
But here i am again with some swatches from my newest mac lipsticks!



MAC cherish (satin) lipstick




MAC cherish is almost identical to my favorite nude lipstick from mac called brave new bronze. I was searching for a similar colour, because brave new bronze is a limited edition lipstick. I don't know which one i prefer, i think these are both great nude colors for darker skintones. I'm a nc40 and it's the perfect nude colour i have found so far!




MAC see sheer (lustre) lipstick


One of my new favorite lipsticks! I love the lustre formula, very moisturizing & not too opaque so you can build it up. I think the colour looks really nice on my skintone, it's not too bright or too nude just perfect in my opinion!





MAC viva glam cyndi (lustre) lipstick


I've been wanting the viva glam cyndi for several months now, so i finally decided to buy it on ebay. I really love this colour, it's a corally red-ish color. Just amazing if you want to wear some colour on your lips, but nothing too bright. Or if you're not used to wear red, this is perfect!



Please let me know what you think of it!

FOTD: Chai Latte

A couple of weeks ago i received a new eyeshadow quad from maybelline called: Chai latte. I've heard a lot of good things about this quad on youtube so i wanted to try it out and bought it on ebay. I've tried one maybelline duo before, but that one was very bad quality (not pigmented at all) this quad wasn't like that at all. The eyeshadow are very pigmented & the colours are nice too . So here's the fotd i made with this quad, it's a very nice quad with nice colours. Not really special, but it's definitely a good eyeshadow quad especially for the price (i got it for $5 i think) so very cheap! Maybe i'll do a review on this one if anyone's interested? please let me know!











Products i've used:

Face
- NARS sheer glow foundation in barcelona
- MAC select cover up concealer in nc42
- MAC select moisturecover concealer in nw25

- NARS Laguna bronzer
- MAC Msf light flush

Review: deborah lippmann nail polishes

A few weeks ago Deborah send me these 3 lovely nail polishes from her brand Deborah Lippmann to try out & review. I have heard good things about this brand & i'm always interested in different nail polish brands so i was very excited to try them out. The first thing i noticed was the bottle, it's different then other nail polish brands i have & i think it's a very unique shape. I really like the bottle, i think they look very chic and luxurious. But you can expect it to look different and chic or luxurious, because these nail polishes are kinda pricey. They cost $16, which i think is a bit high. But to me if a nail polish brand is very good & the colors are great i don't mind paying more. So here's what they claim:

The long-lasting formulas of Deborah Lippmann nail lacquers contain green tea extracts and protein-building biotin so nails stay healthy and strong. All of Deborah Lippmann lacquers feature Aucoumea Klaineana extract, a natural resin from West African trees, which is known to strengthen nails and prevent ridges for smoother, healthier nails. Deborah Lippmann lacquers are free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, and Dibutyl Phthalates.

So let me show you the swatches, all of them are 2 coats without topcoat:

I'm not innocent



Supermodel (created with dree hemingway)


So they promise very good things. I've been trying them out for quite some time, and i think they are very good nail polishes. The staying power was 2-3 days on my nails without topcoat. Which is good, because nail polishes won't ever stay longer on my nails. Also they were easy to apply with a fine brush, and the polishes are quite opaque. Only one of them was not, but i think it was supposed to be like that. Also they claim to strengthen your nails and smoothen them, which is awesome. But i already have strong nails, so i didn't really noticed anything different. But if you have very weak nails or anything, you should give it a try! I really love all of the colors, i wouldn't say these colors are unique but i think these are definitely great nail polishes. I also wouldn't say this is my favorite nail polish brand now, but i really like them and especially what they claim. Even though these are really good, i think O.P.I. & essie are just as good! But i do reccomend these if you have enough money & if you have weak nails. They have very nice colors, i just looked at the website and right now they also sell lady gaga nail polishes i think!

I don't know for sure if they ship international?
But for the people living in the US. You can find them at: Barney's new york, nordstrom, neiman marcus, C.O. bigelow and online at Deborah Lippmann

A little update on my life!

Hi guys, how is everyone doing? Are you enjoying your vacation? I sure do! Last week in my city there was a week full of partying, it's called: the vierdaagse feesten (which is a week full of performances and parties outside in Nijmegen, with lots of great food, music & dancing) so i had such a good time & also Mayer Hawthorne & The County performed one day which was freaking awesome (i heard about it last minute so i was very happy and lucky). Let me show you a video with some short clips and a couple of photos from the performance:






Just me enjoying my white wine & dancing at some house music.


So also i wanted to say (which is a pretty good thing for me), in september i'll be studying to become a beautician! I've been searching for something i like for quite some time, but i never knew what i wanted and now i finally just came to the conclusion i really need to go to school again! So this education just really suits me & i really hope i like it too. when i'm done with this education, which will be in 3 years (i hope) i'll be studying to become a make-up artist too! So i'm pretty excited but also very scared, i really hope i like it or else it would be such a dissapointment. So wish me luck!

I hope you all are having a lovely vacation, let me know if anyone of you is going somewhere? Unfortunately i'm just staying at home, but that's ok!
