H&M sales haul

Hello Sweethearts,

H&M is having a huge sale for the past few weeks on their website. Of course I couldn't resist and I needed to order some new clothing. First I'm going to share what I kept and than I will show you what I returned.

I bought this short sequins dress as soon as went in sale, I ended up getting this dress for €22.49. This dress has been on my wish list since November so I just had to have it.
I also bought a dark red dress €12.99.  A sports top with build in bra for €14.99. I also got a high waisted pair of pants for €7.99. And a pair of yoga paints for €14.99.

I of course bought some more dresses a nice black dress for €9.99 and one with cats on it for €9.99.

I returned two lace bodies for €8.99. I returned the pink one because it was too small and I bought the dark red one a size bigger but it still didn't fit. I also got white flowy dress in size 42 for €14.99 but it didn't look good at all on my body type. I got another more fancier white dress for €14.99 I got it in size 40 & 42 but it was still too small. And last I also bought a long pink dress for €8.99 but the sleeves were too tight.

Lipstick Queen ~ Medieval, Hello sailor & Frog Prince

Hello Sweethearts,

in todays article I'm going to talk about a new brand I recently discovered; Lipstick Queen. Somehow I had never heard of this brand before, or I can't recall ever reading/hearing about this brand. My sister gave the three most popular lipsticks to me for Christmas. I actually wore the colour 'Frog Prince' on new years eve.

Left to right; 'Medieval', 'Hello Sailor' and 'Frog Prince'.

These lipstick aren't regular lipstick but they are more like liptints. They're transparent with a hint of colour. 'Hello Sailor' and 'Frog Prince' actually change colour when applied. 'Hello Sailor' is on me pink with blue-purple undertone. 'Frog Prince' is a nice pink, no hint of green whatsoever. And 'Medieval' is just a red tint.

Lipstick Queen about these lipsticks:

'During medieval times, when lipstick was considered a sin, women used the natural acidity of lemons to bring forth a natural blood-red stain on their lips. This flattering look has been recreated by Poppy in this best-selling tint. Medieval is purely Vitamin E and pigment, making it silky to wear and divinely transparent. And best of all it makes your skin look flawless.'

Hello Sailor:
'Turn the blackberry lip trend on its head with this ultra-modern, navy blue sheer lipstick. In a nod to the nautical, Hello Sailor tints lips in a cool, berry tone with a hint of deep sapphire. The sheer blue pigment is suspended in a protective Vitamin E treatment that can be worn alone as a nourishing lip tint or teamed with its Berry sisters in Saint or Sinner, to add a topaz glint to your berry lips.'

Frog Prince:
'Get heads turning with Frog Prince, a remarkable emerald green lipstick that transforms into magical rosebud upon contact with the lips. Don't be fooled by the deep green hue of this semi-sheer lipstick - the green reacts with the warmth of your lips turning them an intense, fairy tale rose. No two pairs of lips will look the same as it adapts according to your pH and natural coloring, appearing entirely different yet beautifully flattering on everyone. 
Vitamin E and Shea Butter keep lips soft, hydrated and deliciously kissable. And just like true love itself, this enchanting shade was made to last. Lips remain their blissful pink all day long from just one lingering, magical Frog Prince kiss.'

I love that my sister bought me these small versions of the lipsticks so I can easily carry them around everywhere I want to. I'm not sure which one is my favourite yet but I like how 'Frog Prince' looks on my lips.

What's your favourite Lipstick Queen lip product?

ring light mirror

Hello Sweethearts,

my dad brought my love for mirrors and obsession for ring lights to a whole new level when he gave me this ring light mirror for my birthday. Today I wanted to share that obsessed love with you.

The reason why I'm so in love and obsessed and everything with this ring light mirror is because it changed my whole way of doing makeup.
The light isn't bright enough to light a whole room but that's not what you want so close to your eyes. It's bright enough to light your face evenly and see the eyeshadow colours more vibrant and clear. It's also much easier because the ring light has a plug and doesn't run on batteries. My other, actual lights, ring lights run on batteries but before they're empty they get less bright. Which is so annoying especially because it happens gradually so it's less noticeable. Than when you change the batteries it's like BAM bright light, haha. So glad I don't have those ' issues' with this ring light mirror.
Another thing I love love love is that this has two sides; a normal side and a zoomed in side. I use the magnified side for the precise work like eyeliner details, fake lashes and epilation of my eyebrows. Since I started doing this my eyemakeup looks are more perfect, yes I'm a perfectionist. You can actually tell the difference on my Instagram and the photo's I have been posting lately.

I would definitely recommend this mirror for all beauty and makeup lovers.

MAC haul

Hello Sweethearts,

yes we start 2017 off with yet ANOTHER MAC haul. I get a bit tired of all these MAC hauls but I still want to share what I got because I might review some of these products in the near future.

The reason I have been to MAC so often lately, besides the whole holiday buying presents thing, is that I'm a 'working'  MUA. I actually buy a lot more products every time I go to MAC but I only share the products that I know I'm going to (also) use for myself. And I want to keep you up to date on my personal beauty stash in case I'm going to review one of these products or if you're interested in more information/a review.

But let's head into what I bought last time I visited MAC. (which is already a week ago, like how?) The theme of this haul is pink.

I first got the Select cover-up concealer. I actually needed some advice from the woman working at MAC because I have always trouble seeing which undertone I need for my foundation and concealer. In beauty school I was taught that I have a NW (red undertone) but she told me my overall face has a NC (yellow undertone) but my under eye circles need a NW for the perfect cover. So I ended up buying the colour 'NW20'. I got this concealer for €11.10.

I also got a new lipstick, to be precise a cremesheen, in the colour 'speed dial'. This is a light blue pink, the swatch on the left. I got the lipstick for €11.70.

I ended up with getting three new shades of eyeshadows for my collection. I got the colours 'Pink Venus', 'Swish' and 'Antiqued' (from left to right). I got them each for €8.10.

What's your favourite MAC product?
