Foundation Routine Using Drugstore Products

Hello my lovelies,

I have uploaded a new video once again and I have decided to go with the good old Foundation Routine, the last foundation routine I uploaded was from a very long time ago and decided I needed an updated one and decided to use all drugstore products. If you would like to see a high-end one and/or budget one please let me know. I would love to do it.

Now the foundation I used is the Rimmel Match Perfection in 200 soft beige which has been absolutely amazing! All products used are listed in the downbar of the video.

I hope you like it and let me know what you think.

iHerb Haul + Discount Code

Hi lovelies,

well today I have a haul post for you all. I had never ordered from iHerb before but heard great things and shipping costs are low and the Real Techniques brushes are so much cheaper there than when I have to order it from either an European or a Dutch webshop.

Of course I had to buy the core collection face brush set from Real Techniques that I have had my eye on for like forever! And a Physicians Formula Happy booster in Rose which is a glow & mood boosting blush.

And when you click the freebie tab at the top, you can pick 1 freebie from all those products for free! I picked the moisturizing socks, because they looked interesting and I have never tried such a product before.

Now the total of this order came to $ 26.02 I know that is an amazing discount especially because the brush set alone was $ 18.- or something, I had a code that gave me $5.- or $10.- off your first order. $5.- was for orders below $40.- and $10.- is for when you have $40.- or more. The code is: LSQ687

Shipping starts from $ 4.- worldwide, but that is pretty slow though. I got mine in like 3 weeks or so. I don't mind that much because I don't really like paying for shipping anyways.

I will definitely be ordering with them again, also you do have to pay attention with your country's import fees because when it exceeds a certain amount you will have to pay additional fees to your country tax authority.

What is your experience with iHerb?

Fragrance Direct Haul

Hello lovelies,

I have decided to do a small-ish Fragrance Direct haul here on my blog instead of keep filming these haul videos because I get tired of saving up all my purchases and now being able to use some of them, or remember to film a haul. I just don't want my channel to be all about hauls to be honest.

So thats everything I bought, I bought an Elizabeth Arden cream blush, an Essie base coat polish, Essie polish, Becca foundation stick, Becca Sheer Foundation stick and a Becca fine pressed powder.

Thats the Elizabeth Arden Cream blush in Honey, it is gorgeous and it was such a good deal could not pass that up. It is pretty small though.

This is the Becca Foundation Stick in Capuccino and I basically bought this to use for contouring. I thought I would buy it in a bit darker color so I can experiment with the extreme contouring a la Kim Kardashian.

This is the Becca Sheer Foundation Stick in Brulee, and will actually be my shade during the summer when I become a little bit darker. These stick foundations have great reviews and are an absolute steal on Fragrance Direct.

The last item from this haul is this Becca Fine Pressed Powder in Cocoa, I know what you are thinking wow that is dark. And I basically bought for contouring, I thought I could experiment with it. The price of it is just as good as a normal drugstore bronzer.

So that is it for my haul, what is your experience with Fragrance Direct?

Real Steal Deal: bareMinerals Shine On Palette

Hi my lovelies,

today I actually don't have a video post for you. Although I probably should get to editing those 2 videos I have filmed previously. I have been kind of lazy and also I have been spending the day doing my tax-return and also some other formal stuff. I hate these types of days because it seems to consist of nothing fun but oh well it has to be done.

I actually thought this would be good opportunity to let you all know about this new real steal deal I have come across. I actually have been wanting to buy this palette even when it was full price but could not justify buying it just because I thought I could rather spend my money elsewhere.

I believe this palette was part of the bareMinerals holiday collection, and basically contains almost everything you need to create a full face of makeup. This palette is a value of € 51.- but was originally on sale for € 32.49 but now you can buy it for € 16.29 now that is what I call a good price for a nice cute palette. 

I just ordered mine and cannot wait to have it come in. I think this will be great for travel if you want to travel light or just even for every day makeup. When I have it I will definitely be doing a review on it.

You can get your own by clicking this link you will be taken to the feelunique website. And you will even get free shipping! And yes they do ship worldwide and the shipping is free above 12 euros or something like that. Now I would like to know who has this palette and what you think of it? And if you don't, will this be on your wishlist?

Limited Box Review (DO NOT BUY THIS BOX)

Hi lovelies,

I normally don't like doing negative reviews especially when I have a really bad experience with something. But considering I do reviews and I want to be honest with my readers and viewers I do good and bad reviews. Today however will be a bad review. 

Well a little bit of background story first, I was googling some boxes on the Dutch websites and blogs and saw limited box come by and I was intrigued, all the people who reviewed them had amazing boxes and seemed really good value. So I decided it was time for me to go on their website and do the same, they had a Valentine's theme box that was € 14,95 including shipping. So I went for that, they are not a monthly subscription service they are a surprise box service I guess. Now the box I received was really disappointing and had a value of what I would say not even worth € 5.-

The box came like this, and shipping took about a week. Which for Dutch standards is way too long, because when you ship something domestically you can expect it to arrive tomorrow. International packages take about a week or more. 

This was everything in the box.... Not impressive at all!!!

First thing, is a golden rose shatter nailpolish now this trend has passed and even OPI shatter polishes are retailing for 3 euros nowadays. The next product was an one use sample of a body lotion. Value for me nothing!! The product after that is a tea leaves sample, yes leaves that looked like they were gathered in someones garden! There is this skull bracelet that a 5-year old might like. And the most exciting thing in this box is this hello kitty korean lip balm.

There are some flyers in there, that have no value whatsoever. A pair of fake angry birds earrings that a 5-year old might like. And lastly there is a silver midi-ring in there. Yes just one single silver midi-ring.

If you are looking at this box in total, do you think this is worth the €14.95 that i paid for it? I don't think so. It is the crappiest box I have ever seen. And nothing Valentine related to be found and it took forever to get to me.

I think I won't order with them ever again. I know I have received some bad beautyboxes, but this is just ridiculous!!!

Ok I think I am done ranting about it now. Just a warning to my fellow Dutchies out there, don't do it!!

Starlooks Starbox February 2014 Unboxing + Swatches

Hello my lovelies,

now finally after waiting for way too long, I have received the February starbox. For those who don't know what Starbox is, it is a monthly subscription service where you will receive full size Starlooks makeup items each month. It costs $ 15.- per month plus shipping and is available worldwide. Also in your birthday month, they usually send you a birthday box too! Just as a bonus.

Now the products that you will receive always exceed in value what you paid for the box. And my experience with Starlooks is that their products are usually really high quality.

Enough blabbing. Lets get to the box itself.

It seems like a pretty good filled starbox for February. Usually the colors can be a total hit or miss.

The first product in this box is this lipstick in Lilu, well to be honest I am not a big fan of gold lipstick but I might be able to use this color for an ombre lip.

The second product in this box is a cream eyeshadow in the color Phaser, it is a purple blue-ish color and to be honest not a huge fan. Just by the texture I can already tell it is going to be a cream shadow that is going to crease like crazy on my lids. Also the swatch I had to do it 2 times in order to get some color pay off, not the best Starlooks product out there.

Now the last product in this box besides the extras is this pigment, and the color is called Wall Street. Now I am not a huge fan of pigments because I always end up with tons of fall out and when I take off my makeup I always find some specks of glitter on my face even after washing. The color is a very dark grey with multi-colored glitters. When I do receive pigments I like to receive vibrant colors so I can play around with for makeup looks. The pigment is very nice quality, but the color is nothing special.

Now for the extras, I received a headband to hold back my hair whilst doing makeup which is always handy. And a quartz crystal, they put this in every starbox so you can collect these and put them in your makeup brushes jar to give your brushes good energy.

Also I received a code for $35.- giftcard. Basically if you join Starbox you will receive an extra gift worth $35.- every 3 months just for being a subscriber. This giftcard you can use on the Starlooks website.. Now what should I buy from them?

Oh yeah before I forget the breakdown of the value of this box. This box has a total value of $ 41.-
Lipstick value - $ 12.-
Cream Eyeshadow value - $ 12.-
Pigment value - $ 17.-

Oh yeah if you want to subscribe to them you can do so by  clicking this link.

L'Oreal Nude Magique Blur Cream Review (+ comparisons & dupe)

Hello lovelies,

sorry for being so MIA the last week or so. I have been just so extremely busy with everything in my personal life. And barely had time to actually be at home and blog to be honest. I did however manage to upload a video last week. But did not manage to make the time for typing this blogpost up.

But this product I was really excited about when seeing this in stores. It is a drugstore product that could be a dupe for a high end product. What it is, you will have to find out in my video.

Let me know what else you would like to see a review of.
