Top 3 Easy Beauty Secrets💁 (Harder Than It Sounds)

LynnaWu.com - Top 3 Easy Beauty Secrets💁We all have our own beauty secrets which we are guilty. We know the secret but we are guilty of not following them. Well here my top 8 beauty secrets I want to share with you. It might sound simple but all of us are guilty of not following the steps but try it out for a week and see if there is any change.

1. skincare

Some people have naturally good skin but some need to take care of their skin to be able to have good skin. Skin care is more than just what we apply on our skin. Besides day/night cream we also have to take of our makeup and if you’re not wearing any you’d think just washing your face is more than enough. This is when you’re at fault, try using a toner (example: Garnier micellar cleansing water) and wipe your face with a cotton pad and see how much dirt there is left on your face. If you have some time to pamper yourself try using a mask. Sheet masks are one of my favorites because you can just put it on and leave it for some time and after my skin feels so refreshing and smooth, it’s also very good for the skin depending on the ingredients and what kind of mask it is.

2. Washing the face

Makeup has become much more popular through the years and some women don’t even like to be seen without. Makeup has also become much more than for the average woman  and their everyday routine. Makeup has become a form of art which can be applied on the face and body. For this article we will focus on the everyday routine. Applying makeup has become much more easier for us women than removing it because when at home we are all tired and just want to relax. This is just very wrong but we all know this feeling. I’d say change your mind set and when arriving just go straight to the bathroom and take a makeup wipe and wipe it all of and use a toner afterwards right away. So you have removed your makeup and then you can rest, eat, relax afterwards.

For washing the face just use a cleanser while you are under the shower so you can wash your face while under the shower very quick and when you are done washing you can apple your night cream or if you have a night routine right after you come out of the shower. Just make it easy for yourself and do multiple things at a time makes your life much more easier and you have complete all of the steps.

3. Drinking water

Another point is what we digest, what we eat and drink also affect our skin. Drinking 2 liters of water everyday probably sounds easy but it’s harder than it sounds for some of us. We always make excuses or we are too busy or we forget it and some people actually don’t like drinking water. I personally struggled with this a lot in the past but I think I started to notice this point when I went to high school/college. That was the point I started began to drink a lot of water and tea unnoticeable but I felt much more energetic and basically ”cleansed”. So drinking water is very important, try adding this to your everyday routine for a week and you will notice a huge difference. When looking at a 2 liter water bottle it seems a lot but try dividing it in small bottles of 0,5 or just drinking cups or etc. and it’ll seem much moer easier that way.

People underestimate their eating habits and I have been through the student fase when I skipped meals or even ate 1/2 times a day but it’d be very unhealthy especially when you have to take care of yourself I truly get this but drinking water is really like cleansing your body after you ate unhealthy, greasy etc. food so just try adding this to your routine and when you notice a difference it will be ”life changing” and you won’t be live without it anymore.😝

If you really don’t like the taste of water which sounds strange but some people really struggle with it try adding fruits into your water. The trend has been spreading for a while that people just add fruits into their water so it has a light water of your favorite fruits. I have tried the lemon water but I just don’t understand how people like such a bitter taste or there is actually a secret behind their lemon water?

Are you also guilty of not following these simple steps? They are actually harder than what they sound right? Comment below if you are guilty or not.😜

HUGE Beauty Haul🎀 || Drugstore, Lush and MORE!

I have been collecting/buying these products for the lasts 2 months and I finally decided to share with you what I basically bought.. Most of the products can be picked up in the drugstores (Kruidvat, Etos, DA etc.) accept for some. So we have lots of goodies here. More detailed information, product, price will be below so scroll down if you are interested in that.

Huge Beauty Haul || Drugstore, Lush and MORE!

Huge Beauty Haul || Drugstore, Lush and MORE!Tangle Teezer: FOR THE LONGEST time I wanted to pick up a tangle teezer but I just always forgot or They did not had any stock, bad luck huh but I finally have it and I’m loving it. I personally have really straight hair which has almost no volume at all that’s why I use curlers most of the time to give it a bit of volume. Because I have my hair almost always down a lot of tangles come in the ends and it’s just not pleasant but this products is kind of a life savior. If you have lots of tangles I really recommend you to try this, it changed my life. It just has become SOOO much easier to comb my hair these days especially when I just washed my hair OMG. 😛

Andrélon (brilliant age shampoo & dry shampoo): So recently Kruidvat had a buy 1 and get laundry detergent for free but they didn’t had any stock any more in that affiliate so the employee said I could pick out one shampoo. I actually only needed a dry shampoo and this is one you guys have seen before in my empties and I just keep using it. It’s an oke product, it does what it says but the thing is that no matter what dry shampoo I use my hair just doesn’t have a good reaction to it, it gets very dry. So if anyone any recommendation comment below.

The shampoo is actually a new range of the brand. On the packaging it says it’s for aging hair and it’s color care. Hair get old especially your ends so this shampoo is basically suitable for everyone. I yet have to try it but it is a new range so we have yet to see

Organix organ oil of morocco: I always use oil for my hair after I’ve washed it and always trying out new things. For the last couple of times I used the Organix moroccan organ oil but I thought I’d like to change it up a bit. This formula is much more smoother and the organ oil is a bit more firmer which is what I like more but this one is also oke, I did like the organ oil a bit more.

Huge Beauty Haul || Drugstore, Lush and MORE!Garnier: So all 3 products above I bought at the Kruidvat. The Kruidvat had a 1+1 offer on Garner so I just picked up both of these cleansing waters. Everyone raves about the pink one which is for the sensitive skin and the green one is for the sensitive and combination skin which is what I have. My skin has become much more sensitive these couple of years because I have started to use so much product (makeup) for my face. As everyone raves about the pink one I just picked one up and have yet to try it. Lots of my fellow beauty bloggers say that it is a dupe of the Bioderma but I haven’t tried that one so I just can’t compare it with each other but it does removes all of the residue I have left on my face after I wiped my makeup of with a wet wipe.

Kruidvat Professional Makeup Brush Cleanser: So the black bottle is a cleaning water for my makeup brushed. I use this everyday because it’s simple, wipe and use. Do remember to wash your brushes at least once a week if you use them often. A cleansing water is just to simply cleans so it does not removes all of the dirt on your brush. I just can’t say this enough, wash their brushes at least once a week because you just don’t know what’s all up in there and if you use a dirty brush for too long you can get pimples and the makeup won’t look as flawless as it could be either.

Huge Beauty Haul || Drugstore, Lush and MORE!Lastly we have a bunch of small products here from lipsticks to bronzer and perfume. These are basically self explanatory so I won’t go in much detail. I will just list all of the products below this article so if you’re curious what colour the lippies are or the price check the list will be below!

WHAT I’VE USED UP | February/March 2015 Empties🌟

Kruidvat Hand Sanitizer: So if you are a clean freak like I am you will understand. No matter where I am or where I go I need to have hand sanitizer with me. I always have one standing on my desk and one in my handbag. Some essentials in my handbag (when I have to travel some distance) are off course hand sanitizer, baby/makeup wipes, tissues, cue tips etc. Some of my closest friends still get surprised of what I have in my handbag no matter how small my bag is.😛 I like the Glycerona one more because it actually smells nice and has Aloe Vera in it. The downside is that they only come in bottles of 100ml which I carry with me in my handbag but for my desk I need a bigger bottle and the Kruidvat sanitizer contains 250ml. If anyone has any recommendations one that is nourishing and smells nice comment this below because for me it’s an essential.

LynnaWu.com |WHAT I'VE USED UP | February:March 2015 Empties IMG_003

Garnier Purifying Cleansing Gel: First time trying this and for my skin it did not had an aftereffect. It claims that it mattifies and refines the pores. It does mattifies after cleansing but because my skin also gets drier in the colder times it REALLY feels drier. I wanted to try something new so I just gave a drugstore product the chance. When I bought this I did not see that it contained green tea but I know that green tea dries the skin out even more. Green tea is good for drinking to hydrate but skin care is a whole different story. It does also contains mooring which has a lot of vitamins in it but I would not repurchase this. I want to be clear that this is all based on my own experience and on my skin type which is oily/combination skin.

Kruidvat Cleansing Gel: The product contains lotus extract and low vera. From this line (normal/combination skin) I already use the face scrub and I like that because it’s mild but not to the extant that I don’t feel any beads. Some face scrub contain beads so small that you can’t even feel it and some don’t contain any at all but I don’t like that feeling. This cleansing gel is an oke drugstore product and if you are on a budget or just beginning with skin care (teens) I would definitely recommend this but if you are not I would try looking for something better. To be able to have good makeup you need to have good skin care and good skin care leads to good skin right.

Nivea Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Day Cream: This is also a day cream and I really like this one. It’s affordable and etos/kruidvat from time-to-time they have this 1+1 deal, it contains SPF, I like the consistency and I like the smell as well. I have nothing bad to say about this product because I’ve also repurchased it already several times. When I want something lighter but still use foundation I’d mix this with my foundation and it’s perfect for those days when you want want something light but yet coverage on the face. Also when you mix a moisturizer with your foundation you will get this luminous glow on your face.

Niveau Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream: Yes I use the day and night set. Not much to say about the night cream. The consistency is thick but bearable. It moisturizes and that all I need. Also this is good for people on a budget but there are definitely better products out on the market.

Syoss Repair Therapy Hair Conditioner: So for the longest time last year I experienced a lot with my hair and dyed it a lot, used hot tools WAYYY too much and because it”s 2015 I decided to cut down aa bit. I picked up this product probably last year December and used this until now meaning about 3/4 months with 500ml. I’ve tried Syoss shampoo before and it just dried out my hair even more and lost shine but that was a very long time ago. I needed a conditioner to repair and I think I found a perfect working product. If you have really dry/damaged hair like I had, still have a little but it’s been much better and healthier, I recommend this product to you guise. your hair gets much smoother after applying this and way easier to comb. in my experience I did noticed a bit of a difference. Some might say that shampoos/conditioner for damaged hair don’t work but we all know in general conditioner smoothens out your hair so that it’s easier to comb maybe that’s also why I noticed a difference. IF my hair needs a boost again I would definitely choose for this Syoss repair therapy hair conditioner again.

Organix Argan Oil & Shea Butter: After the salon my niece worked at did stock up on ”D’argan Fluid Cristal Argan Oil” anymore I had to look for a new hair oil and at that time Organix became very popular especially the shampoos. Now I’m not too font about the shampoos but this hair oil definitely became my favorite hair oil. It contains organ oil & shea butter which makes the consistency a bit thicker which is what I like my hair oil to be. I would not like for my hair oil to have the cooking oil consistency. I also like that it comes in a pump flagon. It does not feel sticky at all and gives your hair a bit of a shine. I’ve used up 2 of these bottles already so I can definitely recommend it.

LynnaWu.com |WHAT I'VE USED UP | February:March 2015 Empties IMG_005

Vaseline Essential Moisture (aloe) bodylotion: This is my first bottle of this Vaseline moisturizer and I really like it. It’s not sticky, light as it claims, smells good, contains aloe vera and moisturizes. It makes the skin so smooth. I’ve tried their spray bottle already and I like that more because it’s spray and go but I feel like that goes up way faster. Is it because I use it more often or is it because it does not contain as much as printed on the bottle? You tell me…😝

Dove Deeply Nourishing shower gel: Nothing special about this product. It’s an oke nourishing shower gel which can be used everyday. The sense isn’t too strong, very mild that’s why it’s an everyday shower gel I’d say.

LynnaWu.com |WHAT I'VE USED UP | February:March 2015 Empties IMG_006

Maybelline Baby Lips Pink Glow: Baby lips have been a hype for a long time now the topic seems like it has been vanished but I really like it though. I have been using this products for months now and finally I can add this to my empties series. It moisturizes but what I like it that it does has a bit of a tint so if I don’t feel like wearing lipstick or gloss which is rarely I just apply this. Also before applying lipstick I applied some baby lips as well to moisturize it. It’s just a product I don’t have negative things to say about.

Essence Stay Natural Concealer: I’ve used up some makeup as well. This time these are 2 concealers of essence ”03 soft nude & 04 Soft Honey”. When on a budget or when you don’t need much I like these concealers but otherwise I’d expend just a little bit more about €4/5,- to invest in a better concealer such as the ”wake me up” or ”true match” concealers.

Hema Brown Eyebrow Gel: I’ve been using this for years now. It does what an eyebrow gel does and it does stays in place all day long. A product that you can pick up for only €3,75 it’s perfect, I like. There are 3 colours to choose from, clear, brown and grey even though the employees say it does not makes a huge difference, I’m not too sure about that. I’ve used the clear once only once and stepped over to brown. I’m not too sure why anymore but I like the one I’m using currently so if you want something affordable try it because it basically does what it has to do.

Fifteen Shades of Purple💜

Hey Pannies so who has dyed their hair before or wants to make a change in some way. Well I’m not an expert on dying hair or whatsoever. YES I have dyed my hair quit a lot and it basically started about 3/4 years ago that I dyed my hair for the first time and now that I think about it, I haven’t been on this boat extremely long but I have tested lots of drugstore dyes but I also went to the salon as well. I haven’t tried extremely tamed hair colours besides for red but for the longest time I want to try purple hair. The thing is just that I’m not fearless, what if I don’t like it, what if I don’t like the shade, what if this, what if that. Still every time I look on tumblr, pinterest, weheartit these images just makes my heart flutter!

First of all you need to choose a colour of your preference and my fav. colour is purple and also pink but purple is stands strong on my #1. Where do I begin… Yes I want a purple shade but there are so many, ombre, dip dye, pastel, dark etc. so where do I begin? Also a certain hair colour doesn’t just stay one colour shades change in different lighting and off course when you wash your hair so you have to think outside the box as well.


First of all I want to begin save so lets say ombre/dip dye but the colour is really troublesome. Lets take a look at the fifteen shades found (!!Disclaimer these images are not owned by me!!):
 DIFFERENT LIGHTING, DIFFERENT SHADE!
 
So my current hair colour is ”Capuccino Fusion” and I use the Syoss dye and I only retouch my roots so it has a bit of a ombre effect already, the lower part is a very light brown and this is because I did bleach y hair before I applied the actual colour. Well actually I did not do this by myself my niece is actually a hairdresser so she did all the work, thnx Jenn! I always wanted ash brown hair and it just seems I can’t find the perfect colour for this and what I have currently is quit close to what I want to achieve so I’m happy for now. 
 
Not sure who owns basic colours such as black, white, grey etc. but I surely do so if you have some crazy/fun colour it would just make it pop some more and what better than colouring the hair right! I mean… pfff 😛
 
Many of your fav. celebs have had or has stepped to purple as well, take a look if your fav. star is in the list:
Junhyung (Beast)
Brian Joo
Katy Perry
Kelly Osbourne
Kesha
Not only celebs but also your fav. blogger has stepped up and jumped on the wagon:
Jlinhh
Floral Etiquette
Xiaxue
 
Now I want to ask you guys what your fav. purple shade is and if you have any plans on going purple or if you already are and any tips and tricks on the progress such as choosing your colour, did you do it yourself or did you went to the salon, how you take care of it, are you happy with the colour and just your own personal experience on this. Hope you guys liked todays post and don’t forget to like, comment, share

WHAT I’VE USED UP | January 2015 Empties🌟

Another month has past so that means I’ve used up some products. It’s not much for the month of January but it’s a decent amount. For the month of Janury I’ve used up bits of different categories, beauty, skincare etc (see list below):


Rimmel London – Wake Me Up Concealer
Kenzo – Flower By Kenzo
Essence – Stay Natural Concealer
Essence – Eyeliner Pen Extra Longlasting
Essence – Eyeliner Pen Waterproof
Tinted Lipbalm
Andrélon – Volumizing Dry Shampoo
Hema – All-in-one contact lens solution
Victoria Secret – Noir Tease Scented Body Mist

Kruidvat – Cleansing scrubgel
Vaseline – Spray & Go Body Moisturizer

Rimmel London – Wake Me Up Concealer
First of all this Rimmel Concealer is heaven though! I used it under my eyes and as nose bridge highlighter and I really luvv it. It really brightens up and illuminates the under eye area and I literally used it every day sine I purchased it. I would like to repurchase the product but in the Netherlands I haven’t seen it in stores, not even once. I bought mine on the Asos website but they are out of stock currently and I’m not sure if they will stock up but if they do I will definitely buy some backup.

Kenzo – Flower By Kenzo
This cute little but OHHH-SOO-HANDY Kenzo perfume smelled fantastic. It really has a floral scent but it doesn’t make you nauseous. I personally don’t like strong sweet smells or just something that’s quite strong I like something more natural, light and lingers around but I got this sample size and yes I like.

Essence – Stay Natural Concealer
So since I haven’t found any affordable concealer since my ”Rimmel Wake Me Up” I just went to the drugstore and I searched for a pen concealer and I actually found this Essence one. Well Why not right. It’s a luvv hate relationship. Sometimes it blends in very well but at times it leans towards a bit greyish side if you know what I mean but what do you expect from only €2,-. Also I wanted to be a bit lighter because this is the ’03 Soft Nude’ but to really match my skin tone I think I needed the ’04 Soft Honey’.

Essence – Eyeliner Pen Extra Longlasting & Essence – Eyeliner Pen Waterproof
As I have heard from some of my friends that they use the pen eyeliner from Essence and they said it’s an okay eyeliner but I’ve tested it myself finally. Well I don’t have much to say then I would not repurchase these items anymore. The color pay-off is okay but after using it twice/three times the pen is basically dried up so yeah…
Back when I started getting interested in makeup I did used their liquid eyeliner with the blue packaging and that was a pretty good eyeliner if you start of with makeup.

Tinted Lip balm
Not sure which brand this is but this product is from China. Last year when I visited China I was in need of a lip balm so I randomly chose this one at the shop. If I could I would repurchase. It really has a strong pinky tint if you apply this to your lips and it’s VERY moisturizing! It has no scent nor taste or anything to it basically a simple tinted lip balm.

 
Andrélon – Volumizing Dry Shampoo

This dry shampoo is a lifesaver. My hair when I just washed it is always very flat so the first day I use rollers to give it more volume and texture but the second day I definitely will use this Andrélon volumizing dry shampoo. It give you volume, it’s quick, doesn’t leave a sticky residue and it basically looks like freshly washed hair. For the smell it’s very fresh but I wouldn’t say for me the smell does’t affect much and that why I usually spray some mist on it such as the Victoria Secret which is also in this post.

Hema – All-in-one contact lens solution
Lately I’ve been into wearing circle lenses again and when I do I usually use this lens solution for soft lenses actually to clean/cleanse my lenses. Not much to tell for only that it’s a lens solution and it does the job and it goes for some time, I’ve been using this bottle for quite some time.

Victoria Secret – Noir Tease Scented Body Mist
As mentioned before I not only use this the my body but also for my hair. I first got this product in HK and this 75ml bottle lasted me for more than a year I think and I usually do use this for my hair. I asked the counter lady if they had something like hair perfume/mist because I know Chanel has something specifically made for the hair which doesn’t consists alcohol etc. and doesn’t dry out your hair and the counter lady recommended my this bottle I’m note too sure if they have any other scents but I like it so it went straight in my basket.

Kruidvat – Cleansing scrubgel
I’m beginning to have quite a sensitive skin which I before I didn’t had any problems with but for some reason it’s acting up. I’ve tried many face scrubs but this one is what works and I really like that the beads aren’t too big and because it’s also in gel form it’s not too rough either. I have tried the sensitive sub from Kruidvat but that’s not it for me. It’s more a milky texture and had very little to no beads in it at all so this is for all skin types but it’s very mild I would say. I have used many bottles, it’s helpful and it’s affordable as well so what more do you want right.
 
Vaseline – Spray & Go Body Moisturizer (aloe vera)
I picked this up during a sale somewhere because I though why not, never enough moisturizers right. OMG totally fell in luvv with this, it’s fast, it moisturizes, it does NOT leave a sticky residue and it smells fantastic. Really luvv this design, wish they made a bigger quantity of this as this only contains 190ml. I know they have 3 scents but this is the aloe vera one and who doesn’t luvv aloe!

Superlooks Makeup Workshops

Hey my Pannies it’s been a while, how are you guise?😃 Well today I have a new blogpost for you my pannies!
 
Last Saturday I went to both makeup workshops organized by Superlooks in Diemen, the Netherlands. Superlooks is still quite a new brand as there existence is only about 2/3 years. They offer two different kinds of workshops, workshop 1 is all about the basic look so foundation, concealing, powder, blush and also a basic eye makeup. Workshop 2 is the party look and they will teach you contouring and you will create a heavy eye look.
 
The lighting in the studio was quite awful to look at if not wearing makeup because you can see each little pimple, scar, pore but it’d be so good for making photos and filming at least this is the lighting I personally do like. Also i want to say I definitely was in makeup heaven! 😻
 
Here are some personal photos. I know I had to shoot step-by-step photos but forgive my I just had so much fun with these two crazy galls (respect that my friend doesn’t wants so be shown!) so I mainly took pictures of the studio. Also it was such a long day as I went to both workshops with only about 4 hours of sleep and we did not had a break between to go and grab something to eat. 
Here are some more and up-close photos of the studio and the makeup they offer. As you can see they have a wide variety of colours, not only for the lips and eyes but they also have a wide variety of foundation and concealers.
 
When you book a workshop you will get 2 lip/eye pencils and 1 mascara. As I attended two classes you can count what the total is right, hihihih!
 
Also I got some goodies of the store and actually now I think about it I will probably get one more thing their primer, the green one which is awesome works away most of the redness. At the end of the workshop I got two goodies. One is a ”wide smudge brush in #22” and the other is the ”Kissproof & Lipshine in #1”. The products aren’t really expensive at all either, almost all products are under the 20,- and also what I like is that they have a production sticker on the products! Most products only stamp how long you can keep the product but WHEN-OH-WHEN did they produced the product.
To be honest I am a lippies kind of girl and I can’t get enough of lipsticks, lip glosses, lipliners etc. etc. so when I saw what colours they had I wanted to buy most of them because they were so pretty, pigmented. I’m not too sure of long-lasting because I had to remove my makeup twice but this colour I got I swatched it on my hand and it actually didn’t came off not even without makeup remover oil but it did luckily came of with actual makeup remover.
 
Conclusion Superlooks Workshops
For me personally I really liked it and I did learn some tricks. I want to be a makeup artist myself and I really like beauty and makeup, everything in this field. I doubted for quite some time if I really want to attend classes and graduate and get certificates in this field and because of this workshop it really opened my eyes that I really want to do it. They also offer classes and you will get a certificate in the end but it’s for a short period of time and I at least want to follow this course for 1 year. If you also want to dive in this field but still have doubts I do recommend you to go and follow at least one of their workshops but it’s also a very fun experience fun your girlfriends, and or a present to someone.
 
Things you will learn on the basic makeup class are: concealing, primer, foundation, basic eye look basically.
 
On the party makeup class you will learn the following: contouring, concealing, foundation, extreme eye look which is harder than you think of how to create!
 
You can go up to their website and contact them straight away to book classes but I personally won these at an action website, vakantieveilingen which most dutch people might know so you can also check that out. Also check out their website because they have lots of information on there as well and they have an online webshop to shop till you drop!

[Mini Review] Etos Finishing Powder

Hey Pannies,

I know it’s been a while again but please understand I have school going on and this is my last year (2 more months!!). Well but I’ll be posting here and there, I don’t have a fixed schedule for now but here is another post on makeup after a long time.

Recently I haven’t bought lots/tons of makeup just here and there I picked up several things. I was in Etos, I think last week or so and I knew they brought out a new finishing powder. Well I’ve posted a finishing powder before that’s actually white of Essence. I prefer these powders more because they are white and just lighter than a normal powder ”with colour”. 

I have been trying this powder out for more than 2 weeks now and I really like it. It’s light, it doesn’t feel like caky nor thick what I actually do notice with some other powders I use. I actually really like this powder over the Essence one. The Essence one is also good but I’ve bought 2 of these and both shattered into pieces. The first one that shattered I thought oke maybe I got a bad one because I’ve tried this finishing powder before and that was perfectly fine, luvved the product and it did what it said so I thought I’d buy another one MISTAKE!! Went to the shop asked if I could return this and they were nice enough to do this well it’s not a coincidence right if both shattered into pieces.

I’ve been trying the Etos one for more than two weeks and it is in my everyday makeup bag already. At first I though this would be really powdery looking into the compact but that’s not the case at all. As I said before it’s lightweight, it doesn’t feel caky, it feels just like skin, it’s mattifying (although you need to touch up throughout the day but for me I just don’t really bother).
If you are looking for an affordable quite oke finishing powder I do recommend this, it’s only €4,99,- available at the Etos affiliates.

I hope you guys liked this post, if so keep up following me and also follow me on all my social media accounts!^^

Mini Beauty Haul – Drugstore (Rimmel London, Maybelline, Essence)

Hey my Pannies today it’s all about drugstore makeup. Last week Etos had a 1+1 sale for Rimmel London and this week Kruidvat has a 1+1 offer for Maybelline. Well of course I couldn’t resist these offers so I picked up some products!!


This is all I picked up during those offers! Bronzer, powder, BB cream, Black gel eyeliner, 3 lacquers, mascara and two crayons of the Rita Ora collection which I didn’t even knew when I purchased this. Also as you guys can see I put my lacquers in this cute little thin. You can also get this thin by purchasing something from Rimmel at the Kruidvat. This occasion is because Rimmel London is celebrating its 180 years existence. Also it comes with the scandal eyes mascara. I’m totally living it because it also has a mirror!
 
The rocket mascara and the essence powder I’ve used before, nothing new, nothing special, I just like to use these. BUT there’s something I’m not so happy about. I totally luvv Essence it’s affordable and they do deliver. The day after I purchased this product I was bumped out because I luvv this powder, it totally covers the shine (my skin type: oily/combo skin) but it just totally fell apart after I dipped my brush in it. I never had this before and this is the 3 time I purchased this so I don’t know what to do know. Should I purchase a new one?
 
I wanted to try out some new stuff and Kruidvat had a 1+1 offer so I purchased a new BB cream and I was highly in need of a new bronzer. The bronzer I used almost everyday before purchasing this is one of the ELF studio baked bronzer I totally luvved the colour and it’s not as pigmented as I’d like it to be but you can build it up. Well as we are still on the topic of bronzers I started to use the Rimmel bronzer and I’m happy with it so far. The only thing is that it’s very powdery so you do need to shake of the acces product. 
last but not least, the eyeliner. Way back then when the interests of makeup started catching my eye I did try to apply gel eyeliner but I was SOSO bad, the lined and shape OMG. Now that I’ve used makeup for several years I just wanted to see if I am still that bad as back then. Well I’ve used this gel eyeliner now a couple of times and let me tell you I’m liking it, it’s all on the wrists. Totally got skilled, this eyeliner is also very pigmented and it’s in the colour BLACK! Why didn’t I discovered this earlier…?? lol, JK I do like it though and I am recommending it to you guys, try it out.
So here are the two Rimmel London Colour Rush lip crayons I picked up and some swatches. When I purchased these I didn’t even knew these were part of the Rita Ora collection but I’m totally luving it. The 220 Rumour Has It is more like a burgundy colour but once on your lips it’s quit of a chique red and the 600 On Fire is more of a soft red/orange colour. Totally living it and it’s SOSO pigmented. Also I like crayons more because lipstick is such a fuss to apply, these you can just quickly apply and it’s done, perfect.
 
I also picked up these 3 Rimmel London Apocalips lacquers because I just luvv them. I already had the colour 501 STELLAR and I just wanted to try out some other colours because this is so easy to apply, so pigmented and totally living the colours as you can see in the swatches. From left to right: 303 APOCALIPTIC, 304 ECLIPSE, 402 Across The Universe.

Favorite Pearl Monday: D’argan Fluid Cristal Argan Oil

Hey my Pannies so here’s another Pearl Monday!^^ Today it’s about hair. To be honest I’m not someone who threats her hair well. In the past I used styling tools almost every day, had no idea of damaging my hair, no heat-protection, no taking care, no conditioning, no masks, no nothing. This was also because I was still very young and I do have my regrets. My hair is quit dry and this is why I don’t even use a hairdryer these days, actually I haven’t used a hairdryer for about 6 months or more. Well I have been taking care of my hair but it’s still a bit damaged also because I dye my hair quit a bit but I promised myself to only dye my roots each month or one time per 2 months. Well the magic product of the week is ”ARGAN OIL”.

For my haircare routine this definitely is part of my holy grail collections. Because my hair is SOSO dry I need to have some oil to take care of this especially on my tips. I do mix this with another product for the ends of my hair but this is probably something I just can’t miss. Also this smells so freaking good. When I just a product, any, the smell does matters for me even for my face.
This is actually my second bottle and as you can see I almost run out of it. Quit sad because I buy this at the salon where my niece works but they don’t stack up anymore on this specific brand/type. Also I took this with me to HK last year and that was my first bottle but it got spilt in my suitcase, DARN! Well I do really want to purchase another one but I went on the website that’s printed on the back and it says coming soon so I will probably try it again. BTW this is an Italian brand, so jelly!! 
 
It claims that it is ideal for hair demineralized, gives shine, hydration and softness which I agree to all of them. I need this where ever I go, staying at a friends house, going on vaca or so I need to bring this with me and I always get lots of compliments that it gives so much shine and that it smells AMAZING! I just totally luvv it and I’m quit sad that I have to look for something else. If you see this oil I definitely recommend it, just buy it I would say. The only thing that I’m not so happy with is that the pump doesn’t work anymore even after holding it under the hot water.
This bottle contains 75 ml and costs €17,50, at least at the salon where I get it from. It’s a fluid consistency but it’s not too watery which I do really like. The smell is great, it does what it says and I really do recommend it. If any of you know where I can get this in the Netherlands or even online let me know because I NEED IT and I’m quit sad they don’t sell it anymore.
Don’t cry because it ended, smile because it happened
