Review: Victoria's Secret Epic Lash Mascara


Hi Beauties! I didn't plan to review this mascara when I first got it, but then I was trying it out and it is great and I needed to share how great it really is :) If you don't know what I'm talking about, then Let me tell you. I'm talking about Victoria's Secret Epic Lash mascara (10 g, $9). 


Left eye lashes have 3 coats of mascara

Both eyes have 3 coats of mascara

What they say about it:

Get the lashes you crave with this mascara that gives you extreme volume and lift. This mascara formula lends your lashes lushness and velvety color. It’s a grab-and-go makeup essential.

My thoughts:

I would say that the mascara brush is a regular standard brush. It might be too big for some people, but I do enjoy a bigger brush. I find that it catches all my lashes and gives them good amount of product. It might be little bit messy to apply this mascara, if you are in a hurry and wanna do it fast. I try to be careful when I apply it, so I wouldn't make a mess on my eye lids. 

I find that it gives me quite good volume to my lashes, but it wants to clump a little. Its good to go over your lashes with a clean mascara brush and then apply another coat of mascara.

The formula is not very wet, which I like :) I like a formula which is bit try. I feel its easier to apply mascara when the formula is not wet. Only thing that I didn't like about this mascara is the flaking, but its not as bad as some other mascaras that I have tried.

Overall I'm quite happy with this mascara, because it makes my lashes look great :) If you are interested in this mascara you can find it here (it has a new packaging).


Have you tried Victoria's Secret Epic Lash mascara?

Review: The Body Shop Blueberry Shower Gel, Body Scrub-Gelee and Body Butter


Hey Beauties! Today I'm reviewing some amazing products from The Body Shop and its their blueberry range. I didn't plan to buy these product, but when I smelled the blueberry scent they have and saw the body scrub, which looks like blueberry jam, I was convinced that I need these products in my life :)


Lets start with the shower gel :) Body Shop Blueberry shower gel is soap-free cleanser with blueberry extract (250 ml, 7 EUR). This product smells very strongly of blueberries, which I love. Its suitable for dry skin. I feel like this shower gel doesn't make my skin so dry then some other shower gel which I have used in the past. Its a great product.

Body Shop Blueberry Body Scrub-Gelee (200 ml, 15 EUR) looks like blueberry jam. It also smells like blueberries :) I find that it is not too harsh on skin. It scrubs well, but after I use it I don't feel like my skin is overly stripped of moisture. It makes my skin feel smooth and soft. It also makes your shower smell like blueberries :) This product also contains blueberry extract.

Body Shop Blueberry body butter (200 ml, 16 EUR) is with cold-pressed blueberry seed oil from North America. It hydrates skin so well! If you have dry skin you need this in your life. It also contains Shea butter and cocoa butter. Like other products from this range is smells strongly of blueberries and if you use all 3 products together you will smell a long time like a blueberry. The scent lingers around quite a long time.

Weekly favorites: week 16


Hey Beauties! I haven't posted 2 weeks weekly favorites, mostly because I didn't use anything new and was stuck using the same products, but this week I switch it up :) Here are the products I have been loving this week:


Lets start with face products. I have been loving this week L'Oreal Infallible 24H foundation in shade 145 Rose Beige (30 ml). Its gorgeous foundation, which feels light and comfortable on skin. You can see the review on it here

The next product I bought from blog sale and its Mally blusher in shade Pink Perfection (6 g). Its cream blusher and looks gorgeous on skin. I just love it!

On lips I have been wearing L'Oreal Collection Privee by Freida lipstick. I forgot how cream it felt on lips. I do remember it dries my lips a little, but at the moment I don't feel it and have been loving it. I have reviewed it before and if you wanna see it you can find  it here.

Lets move on eyes and this week I have been enjoying my nude shadows again :) I have been absolutely loving BE Creative Make Up eyeshadow quad in Nude (6 g). Its a new makeup brand for me and these shadows are so pigmented and silky to the touch. I did review it this week and you can check it out from here.

This week I have been wearing on my nails Rimmel 60 Seconds nail polish in shade 262 Ring A Ring O'Roses. I topped off some of my nails with Essie nail polish in A Cut Above. I need some glitter in my everyday life ;) Here is the picture of my nails:



Have you tried any of these products? What have you been loving this week?

Review: L'Oreal Infallible 24H Powder Foundation


Hey Beauties!I have another L'Oreal product review for you guys and its their Infallible 24H Powder foundation in shade 123 Warm Vanilla (9 g, 16.99 EUR). All together there is 3 shades. I find that I can always find a good match with powder foundations, but not so much with liquid foundations. Anyway lets get back to the topic :)




The packaging is quite big for my liking. Its not travel friendly packaging, on top you have your powder foundation and in the bottom there is mirror and the sponge to apply the product. 



On the picture above you can see that I applied the product to the left side of my face. I don't know how well you can see it. Would it be better, if I put up one picture without makeup and the other picture where I have used the product in the future? Let me know in the comment which one would you like. 

Its easy to apply and it feels light on skin. I'm not big on wearing powder foundations, I'm more liquid foundation kind a girl. You can use this foundation dry or wet for even more coverage. I first applied my primer and then applied the foundation (used it dry) and I have to say it cover pretty well. It feels comfortable, light and silky on skin.

As the liquid foundation in this range the powder foundation promises some big things, like just-applied look all day. I don't know about that. I did do touch ups through out the day, but maybe it just me :P It is also shine resistant and waterproof. It does give a lovely finish to the skin. It doesn't make my skin totally matte, which I like. It looks natural, like I have this flawless skin all the time :) I don't know about the waterproof aspect of this product. I haven't gone to have a swim with it and the weather is not that hot to tell, if it would last. I'll be going to have vacation in Turkey this summer, so I have the perfect chance to test it out :) I'll keep you updated how this will work out. 


Overall I like this powder, but it is bit price and I don't think I would purchase it again. Just because there are products as good, which are with better price out there, plus they spelled the name of the product wrongly on the label. 


Have you tried L'Oreal Infallible 24H Powder foundation? What do you think?

Review: BE Creative Make Up Eyeshadow Quad


Hey Beauties! I'll be reviewing today an eyeshadow quad from brand called Be Creative Make Up and its in shade Nude (6 g, 17.95 EUR). I picked it up from ICI Paris XL in Brussels, but you can find it in Netherlands as well. 



I have never tried anything from this brand and that's one of the reason I picked up this quad. I like the black matte packaging, its little bit big, but its still stylish :) These shadows are very pigmented and smooth to the touch. I love how silky these shadows feel. They didn't crease on me and lasted all day. I did use eyeshadow primer under my eye makeup. These shadows blend like a dream. I don't have any problems getting a lovely look with these. 

Here is a makeup look I created using this eyeshadow quad:


I would love to try more products from BE Creative Make Up. I'm so impressed by this quad and can't wait to pick up something else from them.


Have you tried BE Creative Make Up before? What products you have tried from them?

#2014BloggerChallenge Topic 7: A Week in Pictures


Hey Beauties! I haven't been very good at keeping up with the topics lately, but here are my topic 7, week in pictures. I have't done anything so interesting and I always forget my camera home or I have it with me and I just forget to do pictures. Here are some pictures from my life :)



I moved from Belgium to Netherlands and have been organizing my makeup and fragrances as you can see on the pictures above. Its my 3rd week in Netherlands and I have been managed unpack everything and got myself even registered today :) Yay! It took only one day. I'm very surprised, because in Brussels it took me to get registered 16 months. Anyway lets get pack to the topic.


I picked up some items for kitchen and they are all Holland themed :) I love tulips and I like the blue pattern on the teapot and sugar bowl.


We went pack to Brussels for the weekend and stayed 2 extra days to get unregistered, which was easier then getting registered. Anyway here is a picture of a park which is behind the European Parliament. One thing I'm going to miss about Brussels is all the green parks that it has :)


This is it! I told you nothing exciting here :) I should do this kind of post when I go have vacation in Turkey, then there is something to show. Anyway, thanks for reading and see you in my next post :) xo's
