MAC haul

Hello Sweethearts,

Yes another MAC haul, I have been very addicted to MAC products ever since I got my MAC PRO membership card. Also I was near the only MAC Pro store in the area.

Of course I got myself some new glitters because I LOVE glitter! From left to right; 'Reflects very pink', '3D brass gold' & 'Reflects turquatic'.
I absolutely love the 3D glitters but they're hard to get your hands around because they're mostly sold out. One day I want to own them all!

Normally the glitters are €21 each but because of my Pro membership I got them for €12.60 each.

I was so happy with my 'She's a model' palette that I decided to buy another one, this time with pastels instead of nudes.
This palette is called 'Pastel times nine'. I will create some eye looks and write a review about it in the near future. I got this palette for €23.40.

Selfie ring light

Hello Sweethearts,

if you follow me on Instagram than you know that I recently bought a Selfie ring light for my phone. I don't normally take selfies with my phone, I'm more obsessed with ring lights so I needed to add this one to my collection.

Important to know abou the ring light; The ring light needs 2 triple A batteries. The on and off button on the ring light also lets you use three different brightness.
Even though the packaging the ring light comes in says it has an USB port it doesn't have an USB port.

I wanted to compare the light from the selfie ring light with the ring light I use to take my photo's with, to read more about that ring light click here.

I took both pictures with my Canon camera. On the left is my regular ring light and on the right is the selfie ring light. As you can tell by the picture it isn't as bright as my regular ring light. It's also more red toned. However the selfie lighting is perfect to take photo's on different locations. I wouldn't use this ring light for close up make up photo's but the lighting is perfect for selfies. Or if you want to take pictures in the dark.

Everyone around me wanted to use the selfie ring light to take photo's with and decided to also buy one.

I got this ring light from eBay for $6.79 with free shipping.

Review: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade

Hello Sweethearts,

if you know me a little you know that when I find a good highlighter I like to stick with it and call it my new holy grail. But recently I went to my local MAC store and found a new and very interesting product. I just had to have it and it ended up being an amazing highlighter!
I present to you the Mineralize Skinfinish in 'Lightscapade'.

MAC cosmetics about Lightscapade:
'A luxurious, slow-baked, velvety soft, domed face powder with a radiant finish. Strategically buff on to add highlights to the high points of the face, or blend all over for a sheer luminous polish to the skin. Features our 77-Mineral Complex and vitamin E.'

This product caught my attention because of the light and soft colours. A lot of MAC products are all up in your face but this product is so soft and light. When I came home swatched it and it didn't feel like a skinfinish powder to me. When I think of a skin finish powder I think of MACs studio fix or something skin coloured and matt. I took the photo when I first applied a little bit on a my cheeks (only wearing a primer, liquid foundation and powder foundation).

I didn't apply much of the product to get this woow factor of a highlighter. Which to me is amazing. Before I had this product most of my highlighter gave me a fresh shimmer and had a lot of glitter particles in them. Which is fine with a natural matt look but as soon as you add some glitter you look like a unicorn puked all over your face. Were as this highlighter has no glitter or shimmer particles whatsoever, it is the actual product that gives you a glow. And that's why I love it so much. I'm proud to call this baby my new holy grail!

The MAC MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in 'Lightscapade' is $33 or €31.

Review: False lashes by Eyes Lips Face cosmetics

Hello Sweethearts,

lately I have been buying and trying a lot of new make up products, yet I'm not really in the mood to review them all. I have taken the pictures for this review a few weeks ago. My opinion has changed a bit since then. However I feel like this is the moment I want to review them, not because I have just worn them, again.

Yes I know I bought a lot of false lashes from ELF but they're only €1,50 and I got a discount on the shipping. The shipping is normally €6,95 but there was a one time summer discount so I ended up paying only €1.

ELF about their lashes:
'No mess, no hassle - just gorgeous lashes! Get full lashes for any occasion with our top-rated Dramatic Lash Kit. Easy application and comfort grip gel allows for multiple uses so you can repeatedly achieve showstopping lush lashes again and again.'

I only applied the false lashes in the photo's, no eyeliner no nothing expect a little bit of mascara to blend my natural lashes with the false lashes. As you can tell they look really natural and the fact that the glue is see through really helps. I do dislike how long it takes for the glue to dry because I'm really impatient. I mostly love wearing these lashes for close up eye make-up photo's because they're so precise and look like natural lashes on pictures. I haven't managed to wear them longer than 15 minutes because somehow the glue doesn't stick. I think it might be the hot weather that makes the glue not stick as well.
Overall I give these lashes 5 out of 5 for perfection, especially for the price.
And bonus points for no animal testing, being recyclable and charity.
