Huge MakeUp Haul (MAC, Sleek, ELF, etc.)

Hi dolls,

I filmed this on the same day as the lip factory inc unboxing and review but I didn't upload this until today because I had the Truly Yours box to unbox as well and I know some people would be super interested in what I received this month.

And also this has been a haul, that was long overdue. Keep in mind that I did not purchase all these products in one go but was a more collective haul in the past couple of months.

Truly Yours April 2013 Unboxing

Hi dolls,

Yesterday I received my Truly Yours April box and I was hoping it would be better than last month, because last month I was pretty disappointed by the box. The box was just not my thing. Of course I did the unboxing on-camera so you can see what my first impressions were of the box.

Enjoy the unboxing! Let me know what you think of the box.

Lip Factory Inc April 2013 Unboxing + Review

Hi dolls,

Every time I receive an email saying my Lip Factory Inc beauty kit has been shipped I count down the days (usually 7 days) but this month it took a little bit longer. You should have seen me looking out of the window every 5 minutes I hear a noise outside thinking/hoping it was the mail man with my package.

Well it did finally arrive along with 2 other packages. Of course the lip factory inc package was the most exciting, every month you receive a little surprise in the mail with a whole beauty kit to create the look of that month.
As usual they did not disappoint, want to know what I received? Click the link and find out, plus my thoughts on the products.

Truly Yours ft. Viva + Miss Lipgloss Unboxing

Hi dolls,

I received this box about over a week ago. I decided to buy this box because I was hoping it would be better than their previous box. And I was not disappointed, this box however was 25 euro plus shipping which was €2.95 so all in all this box almost cost 30 euros. So I was hoping it would be worth it.

MissLipGloss is one of the largest Dutch Beautyblogs and she was launching a beauty book that would be included in the box as well. I wanted the book and as said it would be including some of her personal favorite products.

I decided not to film an unboxing video, because this box is not available anymore as it is sold out. And for the people who are curious about the box, I thought I would do a blogpost on it.

Not only did I receive the book but also a magazine with the blogger on the cover.

The entire contents

The book, fit perfectly in the box. Retails for € 17.95, I wish it had a hardcover instead of it being a paperback.

The Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair mask, super excited to try this one out. I heard so many good things about it. Retails for € 16.10

Andrélon, Get the Volume powder. I have always wanted to try out one of those volume powders. Retails for € 4.99

Make-Up Studio, blending sponge. Great sponge to receive a flawless foundation face. Retails for € 10.90

Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick in 15 Rouge Podium. A very pretty vibrant red with the slight shimmer.

The extra, Snowberry night cream sample. I like the Snowberry brand, I just wish the sample would be bigger.

The total value of this box was; € 62.93 plus the magazine of € 2.95 makes the total € 65.88

What do you think about this box? Do you think it is worth the 28 euros?

Glossybox April 2013 Unboxing

Hi dolls,

I know I promised a skincare special but it has been crazy busy yesterday and then I also received my Glossybox and had to film it because I was super excited and could not wait. And trust me it was totally worth it to spend some time on that. This month it lived up to its promise of Glossybox being a high end brands box. I shall stop typing and just let you watch the video. Enjoy! Don't forget to let me know what you think.

End of Project Samples Week 13

Hello my dolls,

I have to admit that I have been so extremely busy that I have not had the time to type up this piece. I as working 4 days in a row last week and then had Sunday off. And now I have another 3 days in a row to work, but I found a little bit of time to give you my review on the samples that I have used up.

The first sample is the Biotherm Blue Therapy serum and it smells very ocean like fresh scent. It reminds me of Davidoff Cool Water perfume. I don't know, but I am not a huge fan of all these serums. I just don't think they are something I would like to use on a daily basis. 

The second sample is the Vichy Idéalia it is the smoothing and illuminating cream. The scent is a bit floral pinky scent. I like it, but do I think it is that illuminating not really. I like it as a primer type of cream. I don't know if it will work fully as a primer as it is too small of a sample to actually judge it like that.

The last is the Anatomicals farewell the scarlet pimplehell deep cleansing mask. It really has a mud look to the mask, and it smells like a botanical garden. At least that reminds me of it. But it is very pleasant smell.
Would I say it is deep cleansing? No probably not, I don't think any of the ''deep cleansing masks'' ever deep cleansing. It does give you a clean feel though.

This week I will not be doing a project samples mainly because I have some other reviews lined up. I will be reviewing all the daily moisturizers and creams I am using on and off.

L'Oreal CC Cream Review

Hi dolls,

I realize that this week has been so far so good when it comes to me blogging. We are almost half way and I have posted a blog every day so far. Let's just cross our fingers and hope it continues this way for the rest of the days. Because I do really enjoy blogging and it gives me something to talk about.

However this blog post is about a video I posted last night on YouTube and I thought I would share it on here as well. Mainly because not all of you are subscribed to my channel and I thought this would be something that would be interesting to a lot of you. Considering it is a fairly new product.

Enjoy the review and let me know what you think of the CC cream!

Project Samples Week 13

Hi my dolls,

I have a new project samples for you. This time they are all in foil packets. I do have to say these foil packets are kind of annoying and I just want to get rid of them asap!!

The first is the Vichy Idéalia smoothing and illuminating cream. I don't have great experience with Vichy on project samples so far. But I hope this one will have a better outcome.
The second is the Biotherm Blue Therapy serum. Another serum in a foil packet which means just one use only. Normally I want more uses from serum samples.
The last is not really a sample but is a full size one off Anatomicals deep cleansing mud mask. I am quite curious about this, just because of it's name. Farewell the scarlet pimplehell

That is it for the samples of this week. Which sample do you look forward to the most to see the review about?

End of Project Samples Week 12

Hi dolls,

I usually post the end of project samples blogpost on Sundays. But I decided to take a little relax break from everything on Sunday and have a proper rest day. Before having a busy day on Monday doing a few chores that I had planned before I actually do a blogpost.

I seriously have admiration for the bloggers that have a full time job and also have a family life. Because I have a lack of time for all the blogging and video making. And I am currently working part-time hours and also do not have a boyfriend whatsoever.

Anyhow I shall continue with the short reviews of the samples I have used the past week. 

The first is the Eucerin even brighter cream, it contains spf 30 which I am happy it contains as it is pretty important especially now that it starts to look a little bit like spring. The cream itself feels like it is just pure sun screen because it leaves a white glare on the face. And it feels very greasy, it has some room for improvement.

The second sample is the Goodskin Labs Smooth-365 serum, I quite like it but I wish it didn't came in this small sample. It gave a good base to a more simple moisturizer.

The third and last sample is the Sisley Restorative body cream, I did not like this that much. As it felt very heavy on the skin and also has a medicine/herbal scent. Which I am not a huge fan of.

I will post a new project samples week 13 tomorrow instead of later today.

Nivea Lip Butter Review *

Hi dolls,

I actually have had this review ready for a while but all I needed to do was to type it all up. I already took the photos and everything about a week ago. And was actually planning to post this last week.

But of course with my procrastination and busier schedule it has totally been on the back burner. Especially after my previous review, which I had to film and edit (if you make videos you know how much time is spend on editing). 

The first time I saw the Nivea Lip Butters were the American YouTubers talking about. And they were a huge favorite by everyone talking about them.

I first thought, well we probably won't get them here in Europe. But no, weeks later I received an email saying these Lip Butters were going to be sold in 3 flavors in Original, Raspberry Rosé and Vanilla Macadamia. They retail here in the Netherlands for € 2.99 and are exclusively available at Kruidvat. Please contact Beiersdorf if you would like to know where it is sold where you live.

They come in tins of 20ml. I like the tins as they have a matte finish an d the lids do not come off easily when you have them lying around in your purse but still come off easily by just twisting them off.

So is the lip butter as amazing as all the American YouTubers have been saying? Well I really like it a lot! I currently only have the original but am planning to buy the other two as well. The original has no scent, is super moisturizing as you would expect from a nivea/labello lip product.It does not feel greasy on the lips just moisturizing.

As you can see I have made a dent in the lip butter tin already, I think at the time I was using this for about 2 weeks. I usually apply this before I put my makeup on and is underneath my normal lipstick for that day.

The original Nivea lip butter is white in it's tin but goes on clear. I did a swatch of it, you can see it slightly but I did apply it quite heavily on my hand. Even then it does not feel greasy!! 

I would love to know your thoughts on the Nivea Lip Butters. Would you buy them?

Also I would like to know what type of video you would like to see in my next video. A haul or a March favorites?

Khroma Beauty Mascara Quartet Review *

Hi my dolls,

I have a review for you. I have to admit I was pretty excited when I first heard that the Kardashian sisters were coming out with a beauty line. They are always so impeccable when it comes to their makeup. And if they have the high standards for their beauty line as to their usual makeup routine then I knew we would be set with their makeup line. I know they are huge fans of MAC and Nars products. So if it was anything like that type of quality but for a more affordable price then it would be totally worth it.

I shall not blab on too much about the brand. I will let the review video speak for itself.

Project Samples Week 12

Hi dolls,

I have to apologize once again for the lack of blog posts, I seem to not be keeping up with my blog, youtube channel, my social life and a job very well. I will try my best but that is all I can do. I am going to try and make a schedule. Maybe plan a couple of posts ahead. But I cannot promise anything.

I am a day late with this project samples but it should still work out and I can put up the review of it all this Sunday.

The first sample is from GoodSkinLabs and it is the Smooth 365 serum, I am pretty excited to try this out because I have heard some great things about GoodSkinLabs but have yet to try out anything of that brand.
The next sample is the Eucerin  Even Brighter creme, it says it will give you a more even skin tone and will make your pigments disappear. I am curious about this, as it by the same company as Nivea.
The last sample is from Sisley Cosmetics, a pretty high end brand and it is a body cream that I will be testing out. Since it has been so cold lately I need as much body cream as I can take.

Let me know if you have tried any of these brands out and what you think of them.
