MAC cosmetics haul

Hello Sweethearts,

today I went to my local MAC cosmetics store to follow a class. The class was interesting but what's even more interesting is the stuff I bought afterwards.

I came in with a whist list to buy a dark coffee brown lipstick and a silver pigment or eyeshadow. Well that escalated quickly when I saw the new lip products and the dazzleshadows.

From the dazzleshadow line I got (from left to right); 'Say it isn't so', 'Let's roll' & 'I like 2 watch'. I wanted 'Let's roll' for a very long time now and I just bumped in to it.

I got them for €14.40 (with my 40% discount) without discount it's €24.

'I like 2 watch', 'Let's roll' & 'Say it isn't so'
I would describe  these eyeshadows as a glitter shadow with a duochrome. I swatched the eyeshadow without base and just with a finger swipe.

I also went for the new lipstick line, the Liptensity lipstick, in 'Galaxy grey'. The new lipstick line is going to be part of the main collection. I might go back to buy more, I'm not sure I'm not a lipstick person but I'm trying to reinvent myself. I got the lipstick for €15.00, without the discount it's €25.

As part of reinventing myself I wanted a dark coffee brown lipstick. This was not easy because most brown lipsticks have a reddish undertone and I absolutely didn't want a brown lipstick with red undertone. So I eventually settled for Antique velvet. I got this lipstick for €11.70, without discount that's €19.50.

The last product I got is the Vamplify lip gloss in 'Absolute score'. This colour just looks to go to not bring home with me. I got this lip gloss for €12.90, without discount that's €21.50.

I also swatched the lip products, from the top to the bottom, 'Absolute score', 'Galaxy grey' and 'Antique velvet'.

I'm definitely going to create some looks with these gorgeous products so keep an eye out for my Instagram account. I might also review them on my blog, I'm not sure yet.

What's your favourite?

Review: NYX glitter primer

Hello Sweethearts,

today I'm going to review one of the products I have used a lot lately, the NYX glitter primer.

NYX cosmetics about this product:
'Minimize glitter fallout and keep each and every sparkle in its place with our new Glitter Primer - a light and creamy formula that sets and then holds on tight. '

I used the glitter primer directly under need any glitter I wear, even if it means I have to apply the primer on top of eyeshadow. I apply it with the top of my finger in a tapping motion.

On the image above I show the difference between no primer, primer and a mixing solution.
The glitter stripe above is without anything. As you can tell the glitter doesn't hold on very well and has a lot of fallout.
The second stripe is with NYX glitter primer. As you can tell it really holds the glitter in place and has barely any fallout.
The third stripe is with Kiko Milano mixing solution. You can see that it holds the glitter in place but it also makes it lumpy and doesn't cover the whole area evenly. It also has more fallout than the NYX primer.   

I honestly really like the primer by NYX it makes the glitter stay in place so much longer, it doesn't irritate my eyes and is easy to use.

I got the NYX glitter primer from Asos for €10.67.

What's your favourite glitter base?

RuPaul's All stars season 2 ~ My favourite runway looks

Hello Sweethearts,

the final of season 2 of RuPaul's all stars has just been released, and no I'm not going to spoil it, but I felt that the perfect way to end this season is with a runway flashback. In this article I'm going to share my favourite outfits on the runway of every episode.
I will only be looking at the outfits and giving my opinion. I'm not taking in consideration who won or lost that episode or how they did on the challenge. It's pure outfit based.

*Disclaimer: these photo's aren't mine I took screen shots from every episode. This is also the reason why some images are super blurry or not sharp at all. If you want to see the full outfits and the full episodes than go to Logo TV.

I also have the upmost respect for all the drag queens in the world, they're all my spirit animal.

Episode 1
Alaska, Coco Montrese & Roxxxy Andrews
This episode was so hard to choose because they all looked soo gorgeous, like always. But I ended up going to for Alaska because of her pink glam. I love pink and glitters and sparkles so yeah.
Coco Montrese because I could have worn that outfit myself. It's so old Hollywood and stylish.
And Roxxxy because hello sexy! She just nailed this look.

Episode 2
Alaska, Katya & Tatianna
A lot of people were gagging about Detox outfit this episode and even though it was spot on I liked these three outfits better. And no there is no theme going on with favouring Alaska's look a second time, it was just all put together so well.
Katya's look is also spot on, I love the whole pink and blue it's so different from the other looks.
And Tatianna is just gorgeous, I don't think I need to say more.

Episode 3
Alyssa Edwards, Detox & Phi Phi O'hara
This episode was hard to decided which look I liked most but Phi Phi O'Hara and Detox really stole the show. I love how Detox went for all silver and barely any outfit, she rocked this tinfoil robot look. I also absolutely love the cosplay kind of drag Phi Phi O'Hara does. After this episode I went on her Instagram and I was just blown away by her art. She's so good at it and should keep up the good work.
And I also decided to go with Alyssa because I love tutu's, sparkles and fierceness.

Episode 4

Alyssa Edwards
This looks defines my love for cameras and photography. I can't stop gagging over this extravaganza look. I wish I could have this dress than I would so life in it.

Episode 5

Tatianna & Detox

Omg! This twin look is so on point. It's like Coco Chanel meets stepford housewives. It's so classy yet simple.

Episode 6

The look for this runway was pants. I think this outfit was so well put together so hip hop yet stylish. And I'm so in love with Titannas hair do.

Episode 7


In episode 7 the girls had to transform their mothers/sisters in drag queen twins. I loved all the looks especially the one from Katya. But I felt like Detox deserved so much more attention because hello! this is on point af.

Episode 8


Roxxxy Andrews
Season 8 the final episode. I'm not going to spoil who won but I'm going to tell you that all the queens looked amazing! But I wanted to give the spotlight to Detox for wearing something outside her 'comfort zone'. You would normally not spot her in an outfit like this even though she looks a-ma-zing!
I also wanted to give the spotlight to Roxxxy for looking flawless and being all bling-bling.

For those wondering for who I was rooting for during this season well I started off as team Adore and team Alaska but I ended up falling head over heels for Katya and Alyssa. In the end it didn't really matter who snatched the crown because to me they're all winners.

What was your favourite outfit this season?

Glitter Queens Emporium haul

Hello Sweethearts,

I recently felt like I needed more glitter in my make up collection, glitter not made by MAC cosmetics. Than I saw these gorgeous photos of Glitter Queens Emporium on Instagram. To make a long story short I ended up ordering some glitter.

I ordered two loose glitters, two pressed glitters and one small pressed glitter. I got o sample highlighter for free with my order, which I think is an amazing little gift!

The first glitter that caught my eye is the chunky mermaid pressed glitter.  I love how big the glitters are and how they remind me of fish scales, to be precise it reminds me of the children book 'The rainbow fish'. This pressed glitter is £5.99.

The second glitter is the Armour Holographic Pressed Glitter. On the website it looks more like a holographic glitter with grey undertones, as it say in the description. In real life it looks more like a galaxy, with a dark blue undertone. I like it more in real life than I like the photo on the website. This glitter is £5.99.

The third pressed glitter is the Golden rose metallic mini pressed glitter. This glitter is what dreams are made of. The glitter cost £3.45.

The last pressed glitter is the sample highlighter I got with my order. The highlighter is in 24 Carot pressed highlighter. I haven't tried it out yet but it looks amazing.

The first loose glitter is the Cosmic nail glitter. I can't remember if it's actually for your nails or just called Cosmic nail glitter but I love it anyway. I got this glitter for £2.99.

The last product I ordered is the Diamond holographic loose glitter. I love something more than glitter and that's holographic glitter! I got this glitter for £3.99.

I love the quality of the glitters and I can't wait to use them in my upcoming eye looks.
The shipping also went faster than it says on the website, my package arrived within a week.
