The Kryolan Matte Lippie

Kryolan Lip Stain Review
I'm totally and utterly obsessed with matte lipsticks. I can't help myself. It took me a while to jump on the bandwagon 100%, but I think I haven't really worn much else since I picked up a bunch of extra matte lipsticks back in May. Now that we're 5 months ahead, I guess you could say our love is pretty steady. My favourite shades are the nude & muted rose/brown shades. But I also love pink/mauve shades from time to time. My favourite one is Kryolan's Lip Stain in the shade Dance. It's the perfect pink mauve matte lippie!

Life Lately


I haven't been around here on the blog as much as I used to, I know. I've been taking a step back from anything I considered an obligation in my personal life - because work life became hectic and also just to check what the effect would be. I sometimes felt like blogging became one of those obligations and I felt sad about that. I love this blog and it started out as a hobby that made me happy, so I wanted to keep it that way. Sometimes you need to let go for a little while in order to pick things up again.

Current Everyday Makeup Look: Autumn Hues

Daily Go To Look Sep 2016 Cover
Even though September has been quite the sunny month in Belgium, I've been already preparing for autumn. Autumn is quite possibly my favourite season. I love the warm autumn colours and adore walks through the forest when the trees turn different hues of yellow, red, pink & brown. It's also the perfect season to go all out with warm, smokey makeup and brown tinted lipsticks. Not that I don't wear this look during the other seasons.. But it just matches even better now. Here's what I've been using during the month of September!

Up Close: The Body Shop Superfood Face Masks

The Body Shop Face Masks Review
Rewind to about a month ago: a very heavy package landed on my desk. Imagine how stoked I was to find all five new The Body Shop Superfood face masks in there, in a beautiful gift box with an accompanying press kit that explains all about everything. Many brands have bit on a little face mask frenzy lately - it seems like everyone should be slathering masks all over themselves the coming season. And I'll gladly comply! Especially with these ones - they're quite different experience than the others in my beauty cupboard, and that's a good thing.

Birchbox Discoveries & Giveaway!

Birchbox Belgium
It's been a really long while since I've been subscribed to a beauty box. Before my blog took off I was subscribed to a few boxes, but as I gradually had more and more stuff laying around that still needed to be tested I cancelled my subscription. I did however really like the surprise element of these boxes back in the day, and I still repurchase some products I discovered through them (like the LUSH Dream Cream after I got a mini in a Glossybox). Birchbox reached out to me recently and asked whether I wanted to relive the whole beauty box subscription experience with them, so from the October box on I will be trying out three months of Birchbox again. I'm a little excited! And now for the really good news? You can join me!
