Online shopping haul with Becca and ELF

Yes, finally my online shopping stuff has arrived... I ordered the Becca stuff from lookfantastic, because it's on discount at the moment. I've already talked about one Becca product so far, which I really like and I'm eager to try more of their stuff... Everything looks so gorgeous!

Since Becca is quite pricey, I just ordered 2 products. On the left the shimmering skin perfector in pearl, supposedly one of THE best highlighters out there. The bottle contains 50ml, which will surely last a long long time. And on the right is the Enigma palette that was released in fall/winter 2010 with 3 eyeshadows, they don't pick up well on camera - in real life they are more beautifull. The brush that comes with it, is very cute and of good quality, too bad the handle is so tiny. Both products have a peculiar packaging, rubbery, with a very sophisticated look.

And then an ELF hauling, a very known budget brand, which I hadn't used yet so I'm curious! A brush, simply because I don't have that kind of brush yet and their new eyeshadow palette called Brownstone, neutral colours right up my alley... A polish called Innocent, again neutral. Two blushes: mineral blush in Joy, which supposedly looks a lot like Dandelion - that I love - and a cream-mousse blush in the colour Flirt, a brighter pink.

Do you have any Becca and/or ELF products, do share!

Review By Terry Lumière Veloutée

By Terry is probably the most luxurious brand from which I own products... I ran into it thanks to a fashion forum and I enjoy using a product of her from time to time. It's a high-high-end brand, meaning expensive. I got a sample of this foundation and loved it so much I bought it about a year ago...

This radiance-revealing foundation with a matte finish, which camouflages wrinkles and fades dark spots, sculpts the face with ingenious corrective coverage.

Its double anti-dullness and anti-blemish power offers a luminous, visibly rested, perfectly even and corrected complexion. Direction to use: with fingertips or with the help of FOUNDATION BRUSH PRECIOSION N°6, apply a few touches on curved areas of the face and stretch the texture onto the entire face.

The packaging is drop-dead-gorgeous and so it should be for its price (between 60-70euros, so try to catch it in discount when it's 30% off or so). The gold cap, the gold pump, the beautifull letters, the milk glass bottle - it's a picture perfect don't you think? The pump works easy in dispensing and you can also take it off to get the rest of the product out of it when it's getting empty. The bottle contains 30ml of product.

Initially I bought colour 3 natural beige (left) in the summer, but in the winter I need colour 2 flesh beige (right). Colour 2 is a very neutral colour that will suit most fair skin tones, I mostly have a hard time finding a colour that suits me and this does it perfectly! Colour 1 is called ultra fair and has a very pink undertone to it. There are a total of 8 shades available. As you can see it's well pigmented and provides a decent coverage in the swatches. It looks very liquid and creamy, but after blending it in, it leaves a more powdery finish. It also has a flowery scent to it, it's very light and doesn't disturb me but gives a nice touch to the luxurious feeling...

Now the fullface or sideface?
On the left: nothing, just my skin and on the right 1 layer of Lumiere Veloutee in 2 flesh beige.
You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.

I have a bit of redness and some tiny spots that need coverage and this foundation does that perfectly. This is one of those picture-foundations, which makes your skin look amazing when photographed. I have dry skin and I really need a moisturizing base when I use this foundation, otherwise it gets cakey during the day. Luckily you only need a small amount of this foundation to get an evened out skin tone, I've had my bottle for a year now and I use it quite regularly when I go out, have a special occasion etc. Sometimes it works a bit clogging on me on my nose-area, but that depends on how my skin is feeling.

The goods: gorgeous packaging, good coverage, matching skin colour, don't need much product

The bads: PRICE, not moisturizing enough for dry skin

To sum it up: this is a good foundation, especially when used for pictures BUT it is very expensive and it's up to you whether you're willing to spend on it - there are similar high end foundations with more or less the same effect. If it was more moisturizing I would probably repurchase this whenever I run out of it. This foundation is best suited for normal to more oily skin tones because of the powdery finish. If you have dry skin like me and want to use it, use something very moisturizing underneath. I really hope By Terry plans on making a more moisturizing foundation in the future, I'd be on the front row to purchase it!!

A nice fresh perfume...?

I'm in the mood for a new perfume, a fresh light 'clean' scent for summer...

I'm going to snif some scents this week, if you have any recommendations for such a perfume - price doesn't matter that much-, let me know so I can try it!

Review Sigma pencil brush E30

I've already done quite some reviews on brushes, and by now I'm not even halfway through the ones I have... This way it seems like I have a lot of brushes but I don't think I do - how many brushes do you girls have, I'm curious to the number?

A pencil brush is a must if you like eyeshadow and want a decent application, it's mostly used to put colours into the crease. This pencil brush is white, personally I like white brushes because when you clean them you can easily see if there's still some 'dirt' left in them or not, it's a bit harder to see that on a black brush... This may sound a bit silly, but that's just me!

Precise application of color on the crease, outer corner, and upper and lower lash line. Also ideal to smudge out pencil liner. Natural bristles. 9$ on Sigma website.

This is a very good brush and works great: I've used it to apply colour in the crease, on the upper and lower lashline... It's not the best brush to smudge out pencil liner in my opinion, but I don't use it that much so it doesn't bother me. The bristles pick up the colour nicely without leaving too much product in the bristles after application. Cleaning goes easily and it becomes as sparkling white as before... A minor something is that the outside bristles may stray a little, I use a brush guard to keep mine in shape which works well.

Good brush, good price... what more can I say??

NOTD Essence I love Berlin 01 Love this City

Sometimes I'm not in the mood in polish and other times I can't get enough of it... does that make any sense? I don't know whether it's the sun, the good weather, but I'm definitely becoming all spring and summery - along with the brighter and shinier polishes. Recently I bought this Essence polish for only 0,99euros - it was from a limited collection so if you're still after it you should get it now when it's still available.

Whilst shopping the colour in the bottle just had its magical effect on me and I hopped over to the counter to pay for it, I'm glad I did. I've used 2 coats of this polish and it goes on easily, the brush is a bit small (OPI, you've spoiled me with your bigger brushes) and it has a thick texture, so be carefull. It applies without any streaks and has a good coverage. The lasting time has me impressed, so far no tipwear and it's been 3 days. The colour is a gorgeous pinkpeach that has more and brighter (neon)pink in it then is visible on the pictures. I consider it a must-have for the summer and will be wearing this quite often...

What's your favourite summer polish?

Perfume Fantasy by Britney Spears

During my bloggin' months I haven't talked about perfume, not a single time. Maybe because perfume is quite personal, it's not like you can put a review on a perfume. Nevertheless, once and a while with starting point being now I'm going to show you some of my perfumes - just to let you know what my nose likes! Today I'm going to start with a not-so-typical scent that often has some prejudices: Fantasy by Britney Spears - or should I state by Elizabeth Arden because Britney off course doesn't make her own perfumes. This was the 2nd scent she released and so far the only one I've tried, I bought it about a year ago.

Fantasy by Britney Spears is a fragrance alive with enchantment and rich with the thrill of the chase. The story of Britney Spears Fantasy unfolds with lush red lychee, golden quince and exotic kiwi. It continues with the scents of cupcakes, sexy white chocolate orchid and jasmine petals and draws to a close with the scents of creamy musk, orris root and sensual woods.

Isn't the packaging gorgeous, combined with the green ribbon, how cute? Or at least I think so, ok, fair is fair it is a little bit overboard and too girly but I like it. The pink colour and the little so-called-stones in it, sometimes I can be a little girl and love it... Apart from the overboard packaging Britney also made a commercial for her perfume (for every one of her perfumes actually), which you can see below, it's as overboard as the packaging...

Fantasy is an eau de perfume, so its lasting time is longer and it's heavier than eau de toilettes, it's a rich scent indeed. When spraying this you only need a few sprays, don't put on too much. I mostly smell the lychee and kiwi at first, afterwards the cupcakes which are all very sweet... This is a sweetsweet and heavy scent at the same time and I love it! I mostly use it when it's colder/darker (winter-fall) because it's quite heavy. When the sun is shining I prefer a more fresh scent.

This scent is available in various stores and can easily be purchased online, I bought mine from fragrancedirect and it costed me about 25-30euros for 100ml, which isn't much at all... I'm impressed with Britneys scent and may try her other perfumes in the future!

Have you tried one of her perfumes yet and which one?

A very tiny haul

Lately I've bought quite a few new things online *some lovely makeup that I'm eager to try*, but most of it hasn't arrived yet. Nevertheless I did get a package this week and also popped into a store today...

The package was from Strawberrynet and was ordered more than a month ago, but hadn't arrived yet. It contained the Shiseido Bio Performance Eye cream, which was on a big discount - I got it at 30euros now, and a free Calvin Klein lipstick in a rose colour.

Today I also paid a visit to Kruidvat and bought the Essence I love Berlin polish in colour 01, it was only 0,99euro - could hardly let this pass. As the sun is shining now, I'm in the mood for spring colours and this one seems perfect!!

Have you already bought sun/spring make-up?

NOTD Catrice Londen's Weather Forecast

While browsing my polishes I came across this one and noticed I hadn't put it up yet, even though I bought it months ago. Honestly, I haven't worn it a lot, because it's the kind of colour you tend to forget you have - or at least I do. It's a basic gorgeous gray shade that is very subtle...

As with most Catrice polishes I apply 2 coats of this, it goes on easy and leaves a cremefinish without streaking, anyone can apply this. Afterwards I put on a topcoat. After a few days (pictures are day 3) you can see some minor tip wearing but mostly I leave it on for a week or so. The colour is a gray that is quite lovely combined with blue and more specifically jeans. The colour resembles the above picture the most. This is a safe colour choice and perfect for every occasion...

Review Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Medium ash/brown

About half a year ago I got an Anastasia treatment as you could see here and was pleased about it. I also bought her Brow Powder Duo back then and a few days ago, while using it, I realised I hadn't done a review on it yet! I use it almost daily and enjoy it a lot!

Create beautiful and natural brow effects with Anastasia’s Best-Selling Brow Powder Duo. This lightweight, sheer to medium coverage formula was designed to be smudge proof and comes with two shades per compact to ensure the perfect brow color.

This product is available in five two-tone shades for infinite shade possibilities:
Golden Blonde – Suggested for golden and strawberry blonde hair
Ash Blonde/Taupe – Suggested for light to dark blonde hair
Medium Ash/Medium Brown – Suggested for light to medium brown and silver hair
Brunette – Suggested for medium brown to dark brown hair
NEW Ebony – Suggested for dark brown to black hair
Strawburn – Suggested for auburn hair

The packaging is adorable, a small silver case with her signature "A" on top of it, how cute. When opening there's a little mirror available. On the back is some information such as weight, website, it says that it can be used untill 12 months after opening, but I think you could do longer with it. The colours appear a bit darker on the camera than in real life. You can clearly see that I've used it already a lot -especially the center part-, but there's still a lot of product left. This will definitely last me longer than just 1 year.

Because the colours look a bit off in the pan I tried making good swatches of them: left=left colour, middle=both colours mixed, right=right colour. I made the swatches quite intense, when applying it on your brows you will need less product. Before I begin applying brow powder, I always apply a little bit of eyeshadow base, Shadow Insurance in my case, on my brows to make the powder stay throughout the day. I mostly use the mixture of the colours for filling in empty parts in my brow and the left colour for the beginning of my brow. After applying I blend them a bit with a brow brush to make them less harsh and then I apply my Tweezerman browmousse.

To finish it a little before and after, using the brow powder... As you can see I have a few gaps where my brow begins and this powder fills it in nicely without overdoing it. It's really easy to apply, I love using it.

The goods: lovely packaging, 2colours for 1price, natural/easy in application, lasts a very long time

The bads: expensive (20-25euros)

Apart from the price, there isn't anything I dislike about this product. You can buy it in several stores or online from her webshop. If you live in Belgium, like me, you either have to go to the Netherlands or you can also buy it from a Dutch website that I've found (I haven't bought from them, but they offer Paypal).

Do you use Anastasia brow products or products from other brands?

Best brush for cream blush...?

By now you all know I have dry skin and lately I've been more and more getting into cream blush - or should I state becoming my new pet peeve? I like my powder blushes and will gladly continue to use them, but I have to be carefull as they can quickly lead to a more cakey surface... Cream blush on the other hand never looks cakey on me and imparts a nice glow, yes please!

I bought some Nyx cream blushes a while back and have used them often. Mostly I use my fingers or my Sigma SS188 (no longer though because of article). I'm on the lookout for THE perfect brush to apply cream blush, in the picture are some options listed that have crossed my mind such as:
  • MAC 188
  • MAC 130
  • Becca cream blush brush
  • Laura Mercier cream blush brush

Which brush do you recommend / use / are happy with and why? I'd love to hear your thoughts on it...

MUFE says no retouche!

Yesterday my bf was browsing some news posts and came across something interesting. With every beautyrelated item he just calls me to check whether I'm in on the new stuff... But I wasn't and gladly share it with you girls!

Make up for ever, a well-known brand is taking a different walk on commercials and decided to release their new campaign without any photoshop adding. The catch behind is that their new HD make-up works so well, when taking a picture you won't need retouching. Good pitch, I have to grant them that at least... The picture from above looks very good though, I love her make-up...

Another picture, where you can see some 'minor' flaws, but still a lovely and natural looking look, I don't like the "polished" commercial pictures. Keep their site on a close watch, there are more pictures available (along with the list of products used in each picture) and you will -soon- also have the opportunity to zoom in to check the effect from up close - nice! Off course they still use gorgeous models and so on, but at least it's a start and I can only cheer this on.

What do you think of it?

Quickview Paula's Choice Moisture Boost Daily Restoring Complex SPF 20

Looking for a decent SPF moisturizer that suits my skin isn't an easy job. Lately I've bought a few Paula's Choice products and also some samples. I firstly tried her SPF 15 cream for dry skin which you can read about here, but totally disliked it. Not too long ago she released a new SPF cream, intented for normal to dry skin with SPF20. The higher the SPF, the more I'm willing to try it. I honestly recommend ordering samples from Paula's Choice as not all her products are great, which is why I bought a sample from this one that I've used two days in a row.

Innovative, soufflé-like cream texture to make your skin feel smooth while restoring moisture. Lightweight, satin finish never makes your skin look greasy. Antioxidant-rich formula to boost your skin's defenses and help resist signs of aging. Provides reliable anti-wrinkle protection with stabilized avobenzone. Ideal to prep your dry skin for makeup application. Available for 23,5euros.

The product has a thick and creamy texture, I wouldn't describe it as lightweight, it feels quite heavy when applying but it kind of melts and becomes lighter. What I immediately noticed was the scent, it has that typical sunscreen scent to it, it's not too powerfull so it's tolerable. Applying goes easily, at first it looks a bit greasy and feels sticky (which worked dissapointing) but after a few minutes (surprisingly) the cream has totally sunk in and leaves a nice matte canvas, perfect for makeup application. There's no white cast after applying. I'm considering purchasing this one and see how it goes in the long run. If you've tried it, let me know your thoughts...

Review Zia Men eye cream SPF15

Sun care and wearing an SPF daily is really important to me. When using AHA's in your skin care routine, it is even more important as your skin becomes more vulnerable. Luckily there are plenty of moisturizers out there that have a build-in SPF, although in summer it's better to use another sun care item on top of that. Keep in mind that the SPF is always based on using a decent amount of the product and not just a dot. Apart from regular moisturizers, there are also eye moisturizers with a build-in SPF, they just are hard to find... I wish companies would invest more in eye SPF. If you don't have a sensitive eye area you can use your regular SPF moisturizer there, but that just doesn't work for me. I've tried a few eye SPF creams in the past, but none were to my likings. In my online investigation to finding more SPF eye creams, I came across this one and bought it from Iherb for 13$ (edit: it says discontinued on Iherbs website, but on the brands site everything is still ok - I've send an e-mail to check it) what a nice budget pricing for an eye cream.

Dual Protection Eye Cream SPF 15 is the first all natural men's eye cream to help reduce the appearance of fatigue by reducing dark circles under the eye area, while protecting from the sun's aging effects. Chrysin and Palmitoyl Oligopeptides work together to brighten skin and have been clincially shown to reduce the appearance of dark circles under eyes by 62%.

So yeah, it says it's a mens eye cream but honestly - who cares? Skin care is unisex in my opinion. Cosmetics just invented "men's lines' to make more money out of it and men like the feeling that the line is specifically for them so they're not using a women's items or any pastel-like tubes/pots. This is spoken from a men's opinion, I have one wandering around the house and this is how they think?! Anyway, Zia is a natural brand that doesn't do animal testing and most products are reasonably priced. I like pump creams, they are the most hygienic and best in preserving ingredients. This pump contains 30g/1oz and that's a lot considering its price. Most eye creams only contain 10-15ml and are often highly priced. The orange colour doesn't appeal to me, but then again it's made to mens likings...

The product is very light, looks creamy at first but is more like a lotion. It has a light herbal scent that's pleasant. It sinks in really fast and leaves my skin moisturized. I do need quite a lot of it to get this effect (dry eye area as well), but because it sinks in fast this isn't a problem. I use about 2/3 of what I've put on my hand for one eye. I didn't notice my skin becoming brighter in my eye area. The SPF of 15 can be claimed, it contains the proper ingredients to this. The product also lasts quite a long time, I've been using it daily in the morning since september... 7 months wow so I'm thinking I'm almost through it :).

The goods: SPF, price, scent, sinks in fast, pump system, suitable for all skin types

The bads: need to use quite a lot, packaging isn't fancy

Overall, I really like this product. It's a good eye cream at a reasonable price with SPF. It doesn't irritate me and lasts a long time... Because of the texture, I think this is appropriate for all skin types. I recommend this one and hope I can still get my hands on it...!

Review Sigma Small Angle SS266 / E65

I bought this brush months ago, as you can see it's labeled with the old SS numbering, but has now been renamed into E65. I didn't have an eyebrow/angled liner brush before and I wanted to try a cheap one. I use this brush almost daily and it's a very convenient one...

Essential for the application of gel or cream eyeliner on the upper and lower lash line. This brush is also excellent for filling out the eyebrows. Synthetic bristles. Available for 9$.

I mainly use this brush for filling in my eyebrows with my Anastasia powder (review coming!), but I've also used it as a liner. In both ways it does a good job. It's a synthetic brush that is sturdy enough. Even after a lot of cleansing it still looks great. One tiny remark though: a few of the top bristles are a bit out of shape. I like this brush and will continue to use it, it has a good budget price and if you haven't got an angled brush already - this is one to consider.

Quickview Shiseido The Skincare moisture relaxing mask

Samples luxurious skin care line? Bring it on, please!! I love trying their products and I always hope I tend to like them afterwards... Another remarkable thing is that luxurious samples always have their own box with the tube in, just as if you purchased the product... Only a pot or a tube looks a lot cheaper. Todays brand is Shiseido, I have only used a day cream of them in the past, which I liked but it wasn't a staple for me.

This fast-working treatment mask helps stressed skin to relax and recover. The mask is moisture-rich and increases the moisture balance in the skin, making the skin feel cool and refreshed. The 50ml mask is suitable for all skin types and ages.

The mask is quite thick, but not too creamy. It applies easily and feels really refreshing. It has a light fresh scent but it's not very present. I let it soak in for half an hour. After a few minutes I noticed an itching/irritating feeling on my chin, this continued untill I removed the mask. My skin didn't look red or irritated, it's a bit strange because normally my cheeks or the most sensitive and I didn't feel anything there. Afterwards my skin felt moistured and was indeed relaxed.

Sadly this product comes in a jarpackaging of 50ml for 30-35euros. First up: I don't like jars because of hygiene and not good at preserving ingredients. Secondly, the price. For a mask this is quite expensive, but off course it IS Shiseido and a luxurious line, you just have to figure for yourself whether you're willing to spend on it. I enjoyed using it this one time, but I'm not going to hop to the store and buy it... Honestly, I'm better of with my Nuxe mask at a lower price with the same - or even better - effect.

NOTD Avon Matte Violetta

This winter Avon released a collection of Matte polishes and I bought some of them, as you could see in my haul yesterday. I like putting on a Matte polish if I don't have a lot of time to do my nails, it dries quick, within a few minutes you can do whatever you want to. I chose the purple one to start with called Violetta. By the way: it's been 3 months since my last NOTD, wow...

Application is a bit tricky because it dries so fast. I need 2 strokes of it to have a full cover. First I tried it with 1 stroke but parts of my nail remained see-through, looking awfull. The second stroke needs to come fast, in order to have a flawless application. After a few nails, you easily get the hang of it - nothing a regular nail applier can't accomplish. It dries a beautifull matte velvet canvas as you can see.

Depending on the lighting the colour appears more blue or more purple with some shimmer. As all matte polishes it easily shows tipwear and last about half a week looking decent...

What's your opinion on matte polishes?

Avon hauling time

Every other 2 months a new Avon haul pops up... I enjoy trying different things from their range, they have a lot to offer at mostly reasonable prices and some products are very good - I've already found some alltime-favourites.

I bought the Anew Lip Plump Conditioner with SPF, I've been meaning to buy this one for quite some time but I wanted to wait untill it was at a discount, I paid 6euros now. Then a foundation called Calming Effects in the lightest shade - my first Avon foundation to try, but again they were on a discount so I took a leap of faith. 3 polishes from their last released collection, the Matte ones in blue, purple and grey (there are 2 other colours available being red and black but they didn't intrigue me that much). And lastly 2 new mascaras to try, Supercurlious and Supermagnify - don't you just love those names?

In the skin and body department I didn't buy much this time: a new scent from Bubble Bath called Vanilla Peach that smells *again* divine... And their widely celebrated Pillow Mist, supposedly one of their bestselling products - we'll see :)

Review Benefit Dandelion Powder

Benefit is one of those brands that's not available here in Belgium, sadly :(. When I was in Londen I checked out their blushes, first I was most interested in Coralista but when applied on me it was too much and I didn't like it. When I asked for a more subtle blush, she suggested this Dandelion one for fair skin and I liked it a lot. I didn't buy it that time (as I already bought enough stuff), but kept it in the back of mind. When I saw it listed on a blogsale, I didn't hesitate and ordered it. I got it in december and have already used it quite a lot...

Why we love it: this classic ballerina pink finishing powder takes your complexion from dull to radiant in an instant...a celeb fave!

What else you need to know: complete with soft, natural-bristle brush. To perk up throughout the day, dust on cheeks or all over complexion. 10.0g Net wt. 0.35 oz.

Winner of: 2009 InStyle Magazine - Best Beauty Buys - Best Ballerina Pink Blush

How to apply: sweep the brush across the powder a few times, then tap off any excess. Brush lightly on to the apples of your cheeks in an outward motion. For the final touch, lightly brush all over your complexion.

Tips: for the most natural effect...swirl brush in powder, blow off excess then apply! You can also dust dandelion on cheeks over posietint for a fresh POP of color that lasts for hours.

It has the typical paper packaging, I like the flower on top of it. I'm not a big fan of paper packaging as it tends to wear out easily, this is -for me- the biggest downside to this product. It comes with a cute brush, which is ok to use but I prefer other brushes for my application as they are softer. There's also a plastic cap in it to seperate the brush from the powder itself (you can see it laying underneath the brush if you look closely). A downside is that you can't put this box in your make-up bag, you can't close it completely.

When looking in the box, the product is a pale pink that has some shimmer in it. They say you can use this as an all-over-face-finishing-powder but I wouldn't recommend that. It's a bit too pink and too shimmery for that purpose. It contains 10g, a very decent amount which will last you a long time. I've been using it very often and you can hardly tell it looks any different from the day I got it. The blush also has some kind of flowery scent, it's really light but gives a nice touch to it.

- natural light -

-- with flash --

In natural light, this blush gives a nice pale glow - these are a few layers I've put on, it's a really buildable colour. When using the flash, you can easily see the shimmer in the product and the radiance it gives to your skin - when I put this on I skip using a different highlighter as it's not necessary. It retails for about 25euros and I would spend this money on it. I got lucky with the blogsale to buy it, but I think it's worth its price, you get 10g for it in return which is more than other blushes that retail for the same price. If you have fair skin, look into this blush, you won't be dissapointed!
