~ Upcoming Limited Edition Preview Catrice - Coolibri ~

Hey guys,

so I decided to check out the Catrice website, to see what Limited Edition's are coming up, and I saw this collection which made me soo~ exited! And yeah, I decided to share it with you (: It's called 'Coolibri' and is going to be released in June/July, so it's a summer collection yay~ ^___^ 

Btw, I decided to do this whole collection preview thing every time I see a Catrice collection that draws my attention :D OR I will do this for every single collection, but I'm not very sure about that yet.. 

So here is an overview and description of all the products of the collection:

VERY~ Belated April Favorites

OMG hi guys,

I've been gone for a while again... But I can't manage to juggle with school, social life and blogging.. And school is very important at the moment, so I kind of have to neglect my blog, sorry about that. And I know we're halfway May right now, but I don't know if I will do a May favorites post (or even have the time to do it OTL) so I'm just posting this anyways. 

Soo~ here are my April favorites :D

~ Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque ~ REVIEW ~


So a while ago, my friend Xan from Tiny White Bra (please go check out her blog ^^) gave me her bottle of Mint Julep masque, because sadly it didn't do anything for her, so she stopped using it. I'm really thankful, because this mask has been on my wishlist for ages and now I got a chance to try it before actually purchasing it. And it actually worked quite well for me!

~ Back From Hiatus & Catrice Million Styles LE ~ REVIEW ~ *pic heavy*

Hi guys~ 

Omg I've been gone for 3 weeks now, and I thought it was time to come back ^__^ Well I was actually on a unannounced hiatus.. I had a hard time at school, with grades and stuff and really didn't feel like blogging anymore so I took a break.. But now I'm back, and I'll just continue doing my reviews ^^

So today I'm going to review the limited edition Million Styles effect top coat collection by Catrice. I'm not sure if it's still available, so you might have to check at your drugstore because this collection is amazing~!

There are actually 8 polishes, but I forgot to add one while taking this photo, sorry -.-

~ NOTD ~ A Beautiful Spring Day ~

Hi guys (: 
OMG I haven't been blogging for such a long time O.O!! I'm really sorry, but my school life ruins my social life (a.k.a internet life lol jks >.<) and keeps me from blogging.. I'm still attending high school and I'm having so many tests & assignments, it's killing me. 

Here is a quick NOTD, actually a NOTWeek because I've been wearing this almost the entire week. And I was very surprised, because there is no chipping at all and only a little bit of "fading" at the tips of my nails. I didn't even use a top coat!

 *sorry if the photos are a little bit blurry, my hand was very shaky XD

left: Shake It! Flake It! ; right: Salmon&Garfunkel

left: Shake It! Flake It! ; right: Salmon&Garfunkel
I used 3 coats of 'Salmon & Garfunkel' on all of my nails and 2 coats of 'Shake It! Flake It!' on my ring finger, both from Catrice. 'Shake It! Flake It!' is actually a nailpolish from the 'Million Styles Effect' LE which Catrice released recently, and I actually got the whole collection and the review of that will be up soon, so stay tuned for that! 

I hope you all have a nice day and Take caree~ ^____~

~ Second Award ^___^ ~ Versatile Blogger Award ~

Hi guys :D I got my second award, and I'm soo happy ^___^

I got awarded by  Linny from The Thoughts Basket, and I'm really really thankful. Please go check out her blog, she's awesome! Ok, let's go on to the rules:

1) Thank the person that nominated you with a link back 
2) Tell 7 things about you 
3) Pass this on to 10 newly discovered blogs and let them know they received the award. 

Here we go, 7 facts:

1~ I can't live without liquid eyeliner. I ALWAYS do a winged liner, even on no makeup/lazy days (that actually makes no sense..). 

2~ Half the walls of my room are completely covered. With what? With jewellery, fashion and makeup cut outs/advertisements from magazines (one wall) and an entire wall with quotes, from Titanic and Romeo+Juliet (the entire death scene (: ) and also a ton of other random quotes. 

3~ I have really bad eyes. I'm farsighted and one eye is -6,50 and the other is -7,50. I started wearing glasses when I was 6 and got contacts when I was 13.

4~ I got a sample of Viktor&Rolf's Spicebomb, and even tough it's for men, I'm absolutely in love with it and I really want to get it now!

5~ I love reading! The last books I read were the Hunger Game books and now I can't wait to see the movie!

6~ I'm obsessed with noodles! And I know that instant noodles aren't very healthy, so I try to make noodle dishes myself as much as possible. << But my absolute favourite instant ones are these *___*

7~ My favourite healthy snack is cucumber slices with honey and cinnamon dip.

Well, those were my 7 facts, and I have to say that it wasn't as hard to come up with them as it was for my first award (:

Here are the awesome bloggers that I would like to pass the award to:

Have a nice day and Take caree~ ^____~

3~ I can't climb up a 15 ft wall with gymnastics, but I absolutely love rollercoasters, and preferably the highest/scariest ones... So, dunno if I'm afraid of heights or not...

4~ I haven't watched tv for nearly one and a half month.. 

5~ I want to go to South Korea soo bad! Actually me and my best friend Elli are already making plans to go there after graduating :D

7~ I'm actually doing a self study Korean right now, by following some video lessons online and of course, watching a lot of Korean tv shows (:

~ NOTD ~ All(most) Matt ~

Hii guys, this is my very first NOTD but it is kind of boring.. I hope the title isn't too lame =.=" ... But this is just what I've been wearing almost the entire month ^___^ I mentioned these products in my Februari favourites before.

From left to right: Essence Express dry drops, LA Colours Color Craze in Sassy Sparkle, Essence French Manicure in 04 pretty matt.
Here I'm wearing 2 coats of the Essence French Manicure line in 04 pretty matt on all my nails, which is a sheer nude coloured polish which dries matt. And to add a little glam I'm wearing a glitter topper from LA Colors in Sassy Sparkle on my ring finger. And to make my nails dry faster, I used the Essence express dry drops (review). I absolutely love this combination, because it's really natural and great for everyday. 

I hope you liked this NOTD  (*^▽^*)/

Take caree~  ^____~

Hii guyss~! I'm sorry for not posting anything for the last few days, but I got the horrible news that someone from family passed away, so I wasn't really in the mood for blogging.. But I want to thank everyone for their sweet comments, they mean a lot to me and really make my day =^____^=.

Ok all the sadness aside, let's go on to my favourites (: This is actually my very first favourites post, and I have a lot to show you hehe ^___^ Btw. the prizes of the products shown are how much I got them for, they may vary depending on where you get it.
So here they are;;

I just realised this, but the nailpolish on top of the SKIN79 bb cream shouldn't be there >.<
I don't even know how it ended up there hehe -.-

Yeahh... another review >.<, but I'm pretty exited about this product (:

Catrice recently updated their collection, and this is one of the new items. I'm pretty exited about the update and I got three more things, but they will be reviewed seperately. Now i'm going to review the Prime and Fine Translucent Loose Powder

It's basically a translucent loose setting powder to set your base makeup (foundation/bb cream etc). It comes in a nice and sleek plastic packaging, with a screw cap and a sifter to get the product out. You pay €5,49 for 11 grams/0.38 oz of product, which is a pretty good price. Here is what the back says:

Essence ~ Limited Edition ~ Cristalliced Review *pic heavy*

Ok, so in my haul post that I did before this, I said that I would do a seperate post on the Essence products, and here it is ^___^
When I first heard that this collection would be coming out, I didn't get very excited or anything, because most of the Essence LE dissapoint me. But when I went to my drugstore, I did see a few pretty things that I ended up buying. I'll start off by saying that these products didn't dissapoint me! I really wanted to get more, but most of the products were sold out, but these where the ones I wanted to get anyway.

So this is what I got:

1. Liquid Highlighter. (comes in one shade)
2. Liquid Eyeshadow. ~ 03 Ice Crystals On My Window
3. Glitter Froster ~ 01 Frosted Champagne

Ok I'm just going to review them one by one.

Helloo~ there ^____^,

I haven't posted anything in a while, because I've been really busy with school and everything. I wanted to post a review, but I can't find my camera ;___;...
BTW.. the Missha BB Cream broke me out ): I'm really sad about that, but I will try it again and see what happens. I won't give up! But anyways.. more about that in my review, which I can't post until i find my camera >/////<... Poo.

But today I was really bored, so I decided to be a little creative, and make my own little Pikachu. Soo~ here it is::

I just used some cheapo felt in yellow, black and red. I actually wanted to make the moustache, and the stripes on the back+tail brown, but I didn't have any brown left, so yeah c: It took me about 4 1/2 hours to complete it. And I think it came out pretty well ^____^
And this is what happens when you're lonely and bored =__=


BFF <3

Ok so this was my random little post (: I'll try to post a review as soon as possible..
Take caree~    ^____~

CLINIQUE Instant Perfector Pore Minimizer -REVIEW-

Hellooo~~ \\(^o^)//
This is my first post ever, and it's a review! I'm going to talk about the Clinique Instant Perfector Pore Minimizer

I got it at Sephora for €23 ($18), which is in my opinion a pretty reasonable price when you look at the quality of the product, and you get .5 fl. oz // 15 ml of product. There were two shades available at my Sephora, 01 Invisible Light and 02 Invisible Deep. Mine is in Invisible Light. And there is another shade called Invisible Bright, but it isn't available in The Netherlands (yet?), which is with the same pore minimizing and mattifying effect, but apparently brightens up (?) your face..
