Flown over from the Asian skin care industry, sheet masks rejuvenated me-time and the world of face masks last autumn. Selfies with sheet masks keep popping up and every self-respecting cosmetic brand has launched their own twist on this trend. Adoring this breeze of fresh (skin) care but appalled by the insane prices for something you throw away 10 minutes later, I never really bothered trying a sheet mask. That is, until I stumbled upon Kruidvat’s home-brand sheet mask, retailing at merely 99 cents per mask. Intrigued? I was. And you very much should be, too.
I know, I know — it was about time I jumped on this bandwagon. Ever since NikkieTutorials confessed she used her man’s aftershave balm as a primer, the world’s gone crazy. Supposedly, it’s the perfect foundation primer. Ever since she uploaded that particular video, the Nivea Men Aftershave Balm sold out like crazy all over the world. Ah, the Nikkie effect! This weekend I was happy to casually stumble upon a recently stocked shelf with Nivea Men’s Aftershave Balm. I decided it was time to take the leap and today, I’m irrevocably ready to put the queen herself to the test: how amazing is this lotion really?
Every fall deep reds are all over the fashion and beauty industry. You see it on the runway, in the magazines, in stores, basically everywhere. Personally, I don’t mind at all. Burgundy is a gorgeous, powerful color and I love it both in my wardrobe and my make-up looks! MAC’s Dubonnet is a personal favorite and in my opinion, the perfect lipstick for those who want to incorporate this on-trend fall color in a make-up look. Time to review this vampy, oxblood beauty!
L’Occitane En Provence is a brand with a vibe I absolutely adore. I just love how true they stay to their values. They do their best to respect nature and tradition, stay authentic and create an environmental change. So when I received a L’Occitane En Provence gift bag as a present, I was pretty excited to discover all the little surprises inside. This beauty, the Youthful Body Velvet Balm, caught my eye right away!
Spring might still seem like a lifetime away, I like to be optimistic. With just (yeah, just, accept it) 39 days to go, I’ve never been more ready for warmer days. During spring and summer I pratically always have a fragrance mist ready-to-go, to keep myself refreshed and smelling lovely. My favorite body mist, you ask? Midnight Dare by Victoria’s Secret.
On the morning of Sinterklaas, exactly one year after its online release, I finally got my hands on the 3rd palette of the perhaps most famous make-up palette series ever. Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette is considered a beauty must-have in the blogging community and they’re damn right. This gorgeous baby has 12 all-new rose-hued shades and believe me, they’re to die for. Take a look!
