I got super happy when I (finally) found these in a store in Belgium and they were on sale so I bought two colours at once (Pamper Me & Give Me A Break). My nails chip quite quickly, so that's why I'm always excited to try products that aren't necessarily bad for my nails. I've tried the Sally Hansen Oil Therapy ones before and they're kind of okay, but they still …Read more

Eyeliner - Catrice - Waterproof Liquid Liner - Don't Leave Me!

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/12/2018

I'm not a pro at doing eyeliner - but this liner makes it appear like I am. The tip of the 'brush' (it's felt or something) is really sharp and makes it really easy to draw super straight and thin lines. I sometimes got compliments from people about my neat eyeliner work. It also lasts very well (it sometimes fades near the outer corner of my eye, but that happens a lot with …Read more

Eye Primer - NYX Professional Makeup - HD High Definition Eyeshadow Base

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/12/2018

I bought this product a few weeks ago - just before I went on holiday to Italy (where it was pretty hot, so I could test it properly to see if it would smudge in this sweaty weather). It was €7,20 in a NYX store in Belgium - which is a fair price for this product I'd say. I've tried a few (budget) primers before (Essence, Catrice, HEMA and Artdeco) and none of those can do what this NYX …Read more

Love these polishes! If combined with an Essie Gel top coat, they'll stay on pretty nicely. I love their colours and the brush is quite thick so it's easy to apply them neatly. They're well pigmented and there are loads of pretty colours to choose from. Would recommend! Along with the ones from Sally Hansen - these are the best long lasting polishes that I've ever tried.

Top/Base Coats - Essie - Gel Setter Top Coat

Jul/09/2018

Love this topcoat! I feel it's kind of similar to the Sally Hansen Gel topcoat - but a little less thick. So it depends what you're looking for. It does get a little bubbly sometimes but I usually manage to put it on quite nicely. This stuff makes my nailpolish last for about a week without chipping. Depends on how you use your hands of course. My polish does kind of crack under the top …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Miracle Gel

Created with Sketch.

Jul/08/2018

I love Sally Hansen, and their Miracle Gel products are definitely my faves when it comes to long lasting nail polish. This polish (if combined with the topcoat) does stay on my nails for about 7 days without any chipping. I do sometimes see it crackling under the top coat if you watch closely. But from a distance - it still looks perfect. My nails are fairly weak and prone to chipping, so …Read more

Eye Shadow - essence - All About Roses

Jul/08/2018

For a fairly cheap palette - this is pretty lovely! It has a few adorable colours that can create a nice look. The matte ones seem to be a little better than the shimmery ones when it comes to blending and some of the colours are a little powdery. They're not as pigmented as high end palettes , but for the price, they're definitely nice and I've seen a lot worse (for more money as …Read more

Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - All Shades

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/08/2018

II'm not a (gel) eyeliner pro, so that probably does help - but I do find this product rather hard to apply. The problem for me is that it doesn't slide over my lids very well - and I have slightly 'loose' eyelids, so it takes a while to even be able to draw an actual line. And the fact that I do have to put it on my lid over and over again makes it hard for me to draw a neat …Read more

Eye Primer - essence - I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base

Jul/08/2018

I bought this product because I read so many positive reviews on Dutch make-up blogs, so I was really excited to try it while looking for a nice low-budget eyeshadow primer. The packaging of the product is nice and strong for the price but the product itself - hmm. I kind of disliked the fact that it has a pretty intense colour - so you really have to smudge it properly and I wonder if it will …Read more
