When I was younger and just getting into makeup, I dreamed of having a big makeup collection like my mother used to have. I started of only getting a new product after finishing the first one, but soon the collection started to grow. Bigger, bigger, bigger. Today, I can’t say I have so much makeup that I need a seperate room for it, but I do have quite some items that I collected (and started loving) over the years.
I want to show you a category of my makeup (for example lipstick) every once in a while and then write about it and include some pictures. Maybe link them if I have already reviewed them.
I do have more than what’s in my collection today, I have a few shoeboxes full of makeup that I rarely use or that I’m just not crazy about. I won’t show those because only the ones that I have in my stash now are the ones that I think are worth keeping!
I can’t wait to share my makeup collection and my favourites with you! See you soon!

Do you know what I’ve been obsessed with lately?! Heart shaped lips! I recently started “shaping” mine as well and I think it’s just beautiful!
The lipstick is “Russian Red” by MAC.

*Essence liquid eyeliner
*The balm “Sassy” (white eyeshadow from Nude Tude palette)
*Other eyeshadows: ELF 144 piece bright eyeshadow palette and ELF 144 piece neutral eyeshadow palette.

You can unfold this palette three times. It reminds me of a book a little bit! The first side of the palette holds five brushes and a small mirror.
The middle part is filled with a bunch of beautiful eeshadows in various, beautiful colours. There are twenty colours to pick from!
In the middle,between the eyeshadows, you’ll find a blush, bronzer and powder.On the right side of the unfolded palette, you’ll find nothing but lipglosses. This palette holds so many lipglosses, it’s hard to choose which one you’d like to wear! There are sixteen rounds, four squares and two tubes to choose from. Dark, bright, subtile, it’s all in here!
How about the quality of this palette? I find the eyeshadows extremely beautiful! The pigmentation however could have been a little bit better.
Especially the very light and the very dark colours are pigmented well, the rest not so much. The texture of these eyeshadows is a bit crumbly which means that if you’re not careful (enough), you will have fall out on your face.
The pigmentation of the lipglosses is quite nice!
The brushes that come with this set are useful but not exactly high quality. It’s nice to use if you’re in a rush or if you’re just starting out with makeup and this is your starter kit.
I think the pigmentation of the eyeshadows could have been a little bit better, but overall I’m glad with the rest of the palette. Nice colours, decent quality, affordable. I think I could for sure make it work with this palette.
