Skincare I Take with Me Everywhere


Hi loves! Today I want to share with you guys some skincare items in my routine, I take these with me everywhere. At the moment I'm traveling and I brought with me some of my full size products. These are the items I need to have with me all the time, thats how much I like these.


Lets start with cleanser and a scrub, both are from brand called Klairs. Their Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish (60 g, 18.99 EUR) is amazing and I love how the sugar melts when I use it and it becomes a balm, which hydrates the skin. I'll link the full review on it here. If I want to get more intensive exfoliation, I mix it together with their Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil (150 ml). These together cleans the skin so well and leave my skin so smooth and soft. I also use this cleansing oil to remove my makeup. Thats another reason I love it, 2 in 1 products are the best to have with me when I'm traveling.

I also like to take with me a mask and lately my skin has been giving me some trouble, so its no surprise to any one, I have my loved Origins Out of Trouble (100 ml) mask with me. It aways helps to heal and clear up my skin. I promise I'll review this gem soon ;)

Another mask I can't go anywhere is my adored Sisley Eye Contour Mask (33 g). Its a miracle in a tube! You can see the full review on it here, there is also before and after pictures.

I have very dry under eye area and I'm always trying to find new creams and serums for that area. At the moment I have taking liking to ECO Laboratorie Eye Care Serum. I like how fast it sinks in and how nice it makes the eye area
feel. I'm still testing it out, but the review will be coming in few weeks.

Then I go in with my eye cream. The packaging of Zymogen Fermented Soybean Firming Eye Cream (30 ml, $36.50) is bulky, but my under eye area seems to love this cream <3 Full review on it is here.

I feel like I have been raving over and over about Aïcha Anti-Aging Argan Cream (50 ml). The formula of it is just super and I can't have enough ;) I did a full post on the brand, if you haven't seen it yet, I'll link it here. I also reviewed their hair serum, which you can see here and their shampoo and conditioner, which you can read about here.


These are all the items I need to have with me all the time :) I'm obsessed with Klairs products and my new found love is Aïcha products, which are easier to get hold on the Klairs. If you are interested in the Klairs cleansing oil you can try it for free when you order from Wish Trend for $99 or more. I'll leave the code and link down below.


Which is your favorite skincare items at the moment?

Review: Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Essential Mattes 2


Hi loves! If you have read my blog sometime you already know how much I love matte eye shadows. I don't know what it is, but matte eye shadows are just so beautiful and can be used so many ways. I have been using 3 weeks straight Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Essential Mattes 2 (£4.00, 14 g). It already says how much I like it ;)


Makeup Revolution products always have so nice packaging and sleek. The palette comes in a sleek palette, which has a clear lid. I love it! It means I can right away see what I have there and see if its the palette I'm going to go that day. Also its perfect to take when traveling. It contains 12 matte eye shadows and their all nudes <3

The formula of the shadows is amazing and, so buttery and silky to the touch. These are all pigmented, some are more then others, but overall the quality is good. The lighter shadows didn't show up so well on the picture below, but its more to do with the fact that their so light, not poorly pigmented.


I have been using this palette on its own to create a look and also with other shadows and pigments. These blend beautifully and work well with other powder shadows. Its perfect for day time looks and also to do more smokey look. 

I have never experience any creasing with Makeup Revolution shadows and this time I didn't either. I wore these with and with out an eye shadow primer. My eye looks where all day crease free and stayed vivd all day.

Also this palette didn't irritate my eyes and I have very sensitive eyes.


As you can see I'm so happy with this palette and now I want to get my hands to the first matte palette from this range. Makeup Revolution always surprises me with the quality of their products <3

If you like the look of this gem, you can find it here


Do you own this palette! Which is your favorite palette from them?

Review: Catrice Deluxe Trio Eyeshadow | 030 Rose Vintouch


Hi loves! Today I have for you a little eye shadow trio from Catrice. I have been loving plum tones lately, so I knew I'll be getting lot of use out of their Deluxe Trio Eyeshadow in shade 030 Rose Vintouch (2.2 g, 4.89 EUR).



The shadows come in a little compact, which has clear lid. I always like it when brands make a clear lid, because I'll be able to see what shades I have. Overall I find the packaging to be bit bulky.

These are their baked eye shadows, which are long lasting and pigmented. These lasted on me all day with out creasing or fading and this time I didn't use eye shadow primer. This alone impressed me a lot.


All the shadows in this trio are shimmery and the lightest shade feels the silkiest to the touch, the other 2 are less. I also feel the 2 darker shade are very similar, so when I have been using this trio I'll use black eye shadow as well to make the darker purple tone deeper.

These blend beautifully and work well together with other shadows, but I feel I can get 2 looks with it max. Its good to have with when traveling (for a weekend), because its way smaller then some other palettes I have and I can use it for day time look and also for a evening look.

I also want to mention these didn't irritate my eyes in any way and if you have read my blog sometime, you already know I have sensitive eyes.


There are other shade available in this range. I picked up mine in Kruidvat, if you are interested in this trio you can find it here. I think these are great for that price.


Which is your favorite drugstore eye shadows?

Review: Essence Wake up, Spring! Blush


Hi loves! I picked up 2 new blushes from Essence and these are called Wake up, Spring! Blush and I have 2 shades, 01 Hello sunshine! and 02 Bye-bye winter! (6 g)


When the collection first came out I didn't pick up anything and then a week or so ago I saw these in Kruidvat and wanted to try. The packaging of these is bulky, which is something I don't like. Its because under the blush there is a mirror and written something cute. I could do without it, but it is cute. Under the shade 01 is written "Blush up & Smile" and under shade 02 is written "Smile you look Gorgeous!". 

The shades in the pan look so pretty and invited me to go and try them out :) The formula of these is unfortunately powdery mess. The pigmentation of the darker shade is so bad and I feel it doesn't look even, on  the swatch I needed to build it up for it to show up at all. 


The lighter shade, which is more coral is bit better and I like it has shimmer in it. I use it more as a highlighter and it looks beautiful, but it also is bit powdery.

The staying power of these is not bad, but the process getting to a good and even application is just too much work. If you see these anywhere and are tempted, just stay away. There are way better blushes available from Essence.


Have you tried these? What do you think?

Aïcha Pure Beauty


Hi loves! If you have read my other blog Öku Möku (link) you already know about Aïcha Pure Beauty (link). I first came by the brand on a beauty event called I love Beauty. What caught my eye was their gorgeous packaging. The packaging reminds me of summer by the Mediterranean sea. That what made me go check out their products :) They make hair care products and skincare. There is 7 items altogether in their collection at the moment.

Picture is from their homepage

I left from their booth with their Hair Treatment Serum with Argan Oil for myself (review) and for my mom I got the same serum and their Argan Shampoo and Conditioner with Pro Vitamin B5 (review).

I wouldn't have written the reviews, if I haven't liked the products and the brand. We already have established I adore the packaging, but thats not all these products have to offer. These are hypoallergenic, paraben free, not tested on animals, free off SLS and SLES, 100% organic and multifunctional. The hair serum has been amazing to my hair and my mom has found her holy grail shampoo and conditioner. 


I received from them their Argan Anti-Aging Cream (link), which I'll have full review up on the other blog soon. So far I love it! It can be used as an moisturizer and makeup base. I love its 2 in 1 and saves me same space when traveling. 

The argan oil they use in their products is ECOCERT certified fair trade and it comes from Morocco. 

Aïcha  Pure Beauty invited me to an even called Salonè della Moda, which takes place in Rotterdam on 27th, 28th and 29th of May and its the 4th year. Salonè della Moda is owner and founded by Jerry Luxenburg. Its an fashion event, 3 days of shows and the designers are from Netherlands, Italy, UK, these are just some of the countries ;) If you love fashion and want to come to the event, you can buy the thicket here. The e-thicket is 20 EUR and the 3 day ticket is 50 EUR.



I'm so exited about the event and also what else Aïcha Pure Beauty will come out :) I wish big things to them, because their products are amazing and I'm definitely will be picking up some more of their goodies on the event.


I hope you guys enjoyed this post and let me know whats your thoughts on the brand are, if you have tried it or will you?

Unboxing: Style Tone May 2016


Hi loves! Here is the May's Style Tone Box! I'm really happy to get my hands on it finally! I missed few boxes because of moving. If you haven't heard of Style Tone box before, its a subscription box and in it you can find 5 full size beauty products. Its available in Netherlands and in Belgium. It costs 15 EUR a month and it also includes shipping. Lets see what I got in this months box :)


Lets start with the item, which is not makeup related and its a lip scrub from a Dutch brand called Lekkerineenpotje. Their Strawberry & Lemon Lip Scrub (4.95 EUR) is vegan and all the ingredients in it are eatable. I'm so exited about it and will definitely share my thoughts on it on my other blog, which I'll link here.

Next I got an eye shadow brush from Marsk (12 EUR). The brush feels very soft and I'm always happy when I get a new makeup brush :) There is never too many brushes!

I also got a lip product from new brand to me called Manna Kadar and I have their Lip Locked Primer Gloss Stain in shade Lucky (21.95 EUR). Its a beautiful nude shade, which I'll get lot of use out of it. I have swatched it on hand and the formula reminds me a liquid lipstick with glossy finish. Its very pigmented <3

I also got a new eye shadow primer from brand called Emite. Its another new brand to me. Their Eyelid Base (29 EUR) from swatch seems very pigmented and cream. It also blended out well and left even base.

The Last item I got in this box is a 29 Cosmetics Crush Grape Seed Age Protecting Blush in shade Berries (34.95 EUR). Its a beautiful beach tone blush with bit of shimmer to it. I can't wait to try it and see if it looks as gorgeous on cheek as I image :)


The total value of the box is 102.85 EUR, which makes this box a great value :) I'm really happy with it and I have so many new items to play. If you wan't to check the box out for yourself the link to it is here.


Will you be ordering Style Tone Box?

Review: Hikari Eye Shadow Quad


Hi loves! I have been loving Hikari Eye Shadow Quad in Emma (6 g, $15). I got it in a Style Tone box, if you want to check their page out you can see it here. Talking about Style Tone box, I have May's unboxing coming up tomorrow on my blog ;)


The shadows come in a compact, which has partly clear lid, it makes seeing the shadows easier. The size of the overall packaging is bit bulky in my oppinion. 

There is one shimmery, satin finish and 2 matte eye shadows. All the shadows work perfectly together and there is so many ways to mix and mach these shades. These also work well with other powder shadows and I have even used these with cream shadows.


As you can see from the picture above these are very nicely pigmented and also feel smooth to the touch. I didn't have any difficulties bending these out. Working with this quad is effortless.

There is no scent to this product, I don't know why it would either :D Anyway these haven't irritated my eyes and as you guys might now by now I have sensitive eyes.

Staying powder of these is fantastic! I have worn these shadows with and with out eye shadow primer and both ways the shadows last well. I haven't experience any creasing (keep in mind I don't have oily lids) and the color stayed through out the day fresh. 


As you can see I'm more then impressed with the brand and would like to try more from them. I checked their webpage, but they only ship in the US :( so if you are there you can check their page out here


Have you tried anything from the brand?
