Mysterious Mauve!

In my search for the perfect purple lipstick I stumbled on this lovely lippie by Dior, called 786 Mysterious mauve. Although it is more of a blue toned fuchsia than a true purple, it definitely leans more towards purple than pink.

H&M lipglosses: Right red and bordeaux nights

Swatches taken during sunset

Our local H&M doesn't have a full make-up counter, but once in a while they offer a few products close to the till, so cheap that I can never resist them. Sneaky marketing, H&M! During my last visit I bought two red lipglosses for only €0,95 each.

Mustard and gold look with Shiro cosmetics

A simple look using Likelike, Triforce and Goron from Shiro cosmetics' Legends collection.
I have to force myself to use other eyeshadows lately, all I want to wear is Goron! It makes my skin look brighter and makes my eyecolor pop, and therefore it makes me seem more awake than I actually am at 9 am. What's not to love?

Mid winter summer look

Last week I woke up to the sight of clear skin: no new spots, no dry skin, awesome! 
I figured my skin deserved to be in the spotlight and used loads of highlighter and bronzer and ended up looking like it was summer instead of winter. It might have been a tad over the top, but I only realized by the time I took these pictures in daylight and had to walk out the door.

William tell me about OPI

One of my favorite nailpolishes!

I bought it from a former colleague that found it too hard to apply and never wore it. To me it applies like a dream, but it is not the most forgiving color if you tend make a mess out of your cuticle area. It is opaque in 2 coats, but my topcoat sort of stripped away the polish in some areas making is appear blotchy. I would describe it as a very dark wine red. It is darker on the nails than in the bottle and in dim light it is almost black. Definitely one of my classiest polishes!

For some great tutorials on painting your nails, you should really check out My skills have improved a lot since I started following her guidelines! Most important tip is to pee before you start painting them :p

Have a nice day!

Shiro Cosmetics - The legends collection swatches

I finally got around to swatch my new eyeshadows from Shiro cosmetics. I absolutely love them and have been using them every day since I got them in the mail!

Although I am the kind of person that usually thinks every purchase over for a while, it didn't take me long to decide on these eyeshadows. Cheered on by my boyfriend, a true pokemon fan, I placed my order. At first he was very disappointed that I mostly chose colors from The Legends collection, but he came around and ended up having a Zelda revival ever since :D
