The “Nudes eyeshadow palette” by H&M comes in the cutest, lace printed packaging. It holds three colours that are perfect for an everyday, super simpel, quick and easy makeup look. There’s a matte white eyeshadow (browbone), a shimmery nude, skincoloured eyeshadow (lid) and a matte brown (crease).
Swatches! The pigmentation of the colours are actually pretty good. Especially light colours can be hard to work with but it looks alright, I’m pleasantly surprised. I paid €2.95 for this product, which makes it a “budget must have” (well, for me it is).
I would recommend to people who don’t wear makeup often or who are just looking for an everyday, budget makeup palette. Or if you’re a makeup addict like me, you could get it as well, haha! Have a lovely day! Keep safe!
When the lipstains with felt tip first came out, I was a little bit suspicious. I mean, a lot of questions popped up. Would it really work? Isn’t it weird? Is it easy to use? I decided to try a felt tip lipstain. The one that I got is quite budget, it’s the “Smooch proof lipstain” by NYC. I tried the colour “Rock on Ruby”, which is a beautiful red.
The packaging of the lipstain is simple, yet beautiful. I put it in my pencil holder most of the time because I lose it if I don’t. I do mistake it for a pen sometimes, haha!
The swatch looked amazing, which got me so excited! The felt tip is also very handy to line your lip line. I always do the lip line first and then I fill in the rest of my lips. After a couple of seconds, the lipstain has dried and you’re left with beautiful red lips. No matter what you do, it won’t come off (so be careful if you’re trying to touch up in the car - if you colour some other part of your face, it won’t come off for a while), unless you use make-upremover.
I’m glad about that because I do have some other products that don’t even come off with make-upremover and it can be so annoying and painful! The lipstain looked gorgeous for 4 hours straight (I even ate and drank) but I have this obsession with constantly checking my lipstick - or lipstain in this case - and touching it up, so that’s what I did after 4 hours, just to intensify. Oh, and the smell is so nice! It reminds me of something in my childhood, although I can’t quite figger out what it is! I’m very happy with this lipstain, I think it made a very good first impression and I’m open to trying more!
I challenged myself to pick a colour each week that I should create one or more looks with. One week I’ll choose blue for example and so I’ll have to find a way to incorporate blue into my makeup. I myself am really excited for this and I hope I’ll be able to do it every week, even on busy weeks. Just to show you what I mean, I uploaded a couple of pictures of brighter looks that I have created last year. It’s also inspiring at thesame time. Of course I’ll try not to make thesame looks as showed below!
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!
