After months of resistance convincing myself that I didn’t need it, I caved and bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette with the sale at Ulta. I have used it for a bit now and though I am blown away by the quality of it, I decided to go through my Makeup Geek eyeshadow collection (read more here) because I had a feeling I already owned similar shades. So here is my review of the palette and some Makeup Geek Modern Renaissance dupes.
I’m not one to wear a lot of red lipstick, EXCEPT in December. Holiday season is THE season for red lips in my opinion. In this video I show you my Top 5 Red Lipsticks for the holidays with live swatches and mini reviews for each one.
The holidays are upon us (yes, I like to use this phrase a lot) and red lips are a must for this season. One of the trends that has taken the internet by storm is glitter lips, introduced by Pat McGrath on the Versace runway some months ago. She even released her glitter lip kits, but you don’t have to spend $60 to achieve the look. In this tutorial I show you three ways to create red glitter lips using makeup products that are affordable and already part of your collection.
For the second year now, I will try to bring you discounts and codes valid for this occasion in the most used beauty-related webshops. For my European readers, I will signal the American website for which you might be charged customs costs. I would personally not suggest you make big purchases (above ~24$) unless you’re prepared to pay around 40% of your purchase extra.
Welcome back to another episode of The Color Analysis Wars! Tan tan tan (dramatic sound effects). In this series I have collaborated with my friend Fran from Being Cute is Not a Crime to compare how lipsticks look like on the two of us. To know more, read the first episode with the introduction here. Just to remind you, Fran has been analyzed as Deep Winter and I am a Deep Autumn, thanks to Giusy from Rossetto e Merletto. .Moving on to this post, we’re taking a look at nude lipsticks that suits us deep seasons. The main characteristics of these lipsticks is that they do not contain any white or grey, two colors that “kill” deep autumns and winters.
I believe your hands are a huge part of the first impression you make on someone. Therefore I find taking good care of them and of my nails and important part of my daily beauty chores. In this post I want to share with you the nail care routine that has worked great for me in the past months.
PS. Part 2 on my skincare wishlist is coming next week! Keep an eye for some natural skincare product recommendations!
The advantage to using local webshops is that there will be no custom tax surprise at the door, with charges up to 40% of your order added. And those surprises make your heart skip, I tell you from experience. Furthermore, shipping is cheaper and faster and ultimately you have access to a lot of products that cannot be shipped overseas to individuals for custom restrictions.

Great service and they sell some amazing products that you can’t find in shops here in the netherlands..can’t wait to get that glow on with @thebalmeu Mary Lou and some gorgeous lips with the @wetnwildcosmetic megalast lipsticks and @lagirlcosmetics matte liquid lipstick 😍 #bbloggers #makeup #haul #makeuphaul #beautyaddict
My latest purchases include these Morphe Brushes single eyeshadows, The Balm Mary Lou Manizer, L.A. Girl Matte Lip stain and Wet n Wild Megalast lipsticks from Boozyshop and Barry M nail polishes and my now holy grail Zoeva Opulence eyeliner from The Makeup Spot. I have been incredibly impressed by the fast dispatching and the incredibly kind Customer Service. I had a bad experience with my postman delivering the package in a different street and the girls at The Makeup Spot interfaced with the post office very fast and it was a fuss-free affair for me.
I have a discount code for you guys to shop at The Makeup Spot with 15% discount of your whole order with the code sint2015.
