 Urban Decay has some gorgeous new launches! I am so excited. A limited edition collection from Jean- Michel Bisquiat and some skincare.

A special-edition collection that’s inspired by Jean-Michel Basquiat’s iconic artwork. And some make-up removing products.
 Let's start with these stunning eye-shadow pallets. First we have the Tenant eyeshadow palette 

STUDIO A pale pink matte
1960 A bright pink matte
NEO A rich aubergine with micro-shimmer
LES A charcoal-black matte-satin
GRAFFITI A deep metallic green
EXU A bright green shimmer
BOOM A bright teal matte
UNTITLED A rich deep blue matte
 The second one is my favorite and is called Gold Griot eyeshadow palette.

ENIGMA A neutral pale nude matte
LEVITATION A warm pale nude matte
NOT FOR SALE A medium sienna matte
SUCKERPUNCH A warm brown shimmer
INFLUENCE A brown satin wtih gold shimmer
BK A gray matte-satin
PSEUDONYM A deep navy matte
CROWN A very metallic gold
Then we have the VICE lipstick ABSTRACT. A nude-taupe (Cream) And the rest are more skincare products.

Meltdown make-up remover dissolving spray

             Formulated to easily remove even the most stubborn waterproof makeup (yes, even Vice Liquid Lipstick and 24/7 Pencils!), this dissolving spray is as powerful as it is gentle. Nonirritating, nourishing ingredients leave skin clean, refreshed and without a trace of makeup. Meltdown hydrates, yet never leaves a greasy residue.

Meltdown Makeup Remover Dissolving Spray mists on weightlessly and starts working on contact to instantly dissolve our long-lasting products in one swipe—no rubbing or tugging on delicate skin. Wait until you see how well this spray works; it easily takes everything off, including waterproof mascara. Our super-effective, anhydrous, filler-free formula contains only three ingredients, including conditioning vitamin E.

Rehab Makeup Prep Pore Refining Peel is like a vacuum for your pores. This easy-to-use, peel-off mask immediately draws out impurities—leaving pores visibly cleaner, more refined and smaller-looking.

Gentle enough for sensitive skin, our allergy-tested Pore Refining Peel works on all complexion types. And we laced this formula with a blend of nine skin-nourishing plant extracts, including sugarcane extract, Irish moss, common St. John’s wort, burdock root extract, peppermint extract and lemon balm.

Lip Oil Stick
Formulated to easily remove even the most stubborn waterproof makeup (yes, even Vice Liquid Lipstick and 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil!), this lip oil stick is as powerful as it is gentle. Nonirritating, nourishing ingredients leave lips clean, refreshed and without a trace of makeup. Meltdown hydrates, yet never leaves a greasy residue.

When we developed Vice Liquid Lipstick, we loved the insane wear, but we were having a terrible time getting all of the color off our lips! So we created a product powerful enough to do the job: Meltdown Lip Oil Stick. Take off one Vice and get ready for the next. This lightweight, silky stick glides on to remove our longest-lasting lip products.

Lip Love
Rehab Makeup Prep Lip Love is a super-luxe, moisturizing balm that hydrates and soothes dry lips, so they’re soft, smooth and practically irresistible.

Replenish overworked lips and get them ready for action again. Our whipped, oil-based formula really hugs lips to seal in moisture, leaving them dangerously kissable. And Lip Love has a bouncy, smooth, comfortable texture that feels great on your lips.

Hot Springs Hydrating Gel             Replenish overworked lips and get them ready for action again. Our whipped, oil-based formula really hugs lips to seal in moisture, leaving them dangerously kissable. And Lip Love has a bouncy, smooth, comfortable texture that feels great on your lips.

Pretty Gritty Skin Polish
Dull, dry skin interfering with your makeup application? Smooth and brighten your complexion with Rehab Makeup Prep Pretty Gritty Skin Polish. Gentle enough for everyday use (yet crazy effective!), this skin-polishing powder exfoliates as it cleanses. Refine your complexion and get prepped, smoothed and ready for the perfect application.

Pretty Gritty Skin Polish cleanses and polishes skin so makeup performs better and provides the perfect application. Skin also looks instantly brighter so it glows under makeup.

I will try the products and let me know if you would like so see full reviews of them (or a few) too!

I must say I am more of the brown/neutral every-day kind of colors.. So the first palette is a bit too much for me. But the second one with the neutrals I like that I a lot! 
I love the pigment as always with Urban Decay. The best quality there is.

New new new! This daily booster with vitamin C from Clinique.I dont know about you guys but my skin can use every extra energy.

Just like your morning fresh-pressed juice or vitamin helps you stay healthy on the inside, this super-potent Booster was designed as a daily supplement to visibly rejuvenate skin from the outside—and a simple, seamless way to reinvigorate your de-aging routine without changing a thing. Simply mix 2 drops with your moisturizer AM & PM.

Fresh means powerful. Pure Vitamin C naturally degrades when exposed to oxygen, so it's most powerful when fresh. Stay-fresh packaging isolates the pure Vitamin C until activation, maintaining its freshness and full power for maximum results.

Poolside beauty!
Always bring a sunscreen, hairoil, highlighter, fragrance, mascara, a sunnies a blush, lipgloss and a concealer. Oh and not to forget a shimmering eyeshadow! ;)


I was thinking about this beauty for a while now and it kept coming back in my mind every time I saw someone wearing it. You have a lot of different colors and they are quit populair. 
This color can not come as a surprise when you have seen my wardrobe... 
OK must admin the size is a real mini so it does not fit a lot in there.
But hey, what more do you need except you phone, keys, a wallet and a lipstick?

donderdag 15 juni 2017


It's time for a men only article! It has been a long time since the last time and I know how populair it was not only by men but also by (their) woman. Fathers day is coming so maybe you get some idea's.

I selected the best musthaves (skin and body related) products to share with you.

Sisleÿum is a global revitalizing anti-aging skin care product for men. Its formula has been designed to increase the skin's resistance against daily harmful effects (shaving, cold, stress, pollution…).

One of my favorite alltime fragrances for men.  A composition that plays on the tension between freshness and sensuality. The sparkling freshness of Italian mandarin, heightened by a crystalline accord, blends into the clean, intense notes of cedar. Sensual, almondy Venezuelan tonka bean teamed with the enveloping notes of white musks produces a deep and intense trail.| L'occitane l'homme cedrat after shave. It helps to:

I love it.. so fresh but masculine |

 Me and my Chanel addiction.. specially when it comes so toiletries for in my bathroom.
Creating my little Chanel spa ;)
Now Chanel has this new launch: The Chance eau Vive. It's so lovely. 
Some fragrances can be quit heavy so I like these kind of products because they smell a bit softer and more powdery. Yes.. welcome to the family!

Wake up with Chance Eau Vive and a morning ritual that fills you with a sense of well-being. Start the day with energy, bathed in the subtle scent of the Foaming Shower Gel and the Body Moisture — two new bodycare products with boundless vitality and a fl oral-zesty fragrance that blends
the grapefruit-blood orange accord with jasmine and the cedar-iris accord.


A fresh and vivifying gel to make your bath or shower a moment of wellbeing. Its a fine, light foam gently cleanses with an energizing sensation for skin that is soft and delicately scented.


A fresh, light lotion to prolong the vivifying scent of Chance Eau Vive
on the skin throughout the day. Its exquisitely luscious texture leaves skin
satiny soft and subtly bathed in the delicate scent of fl oral-zesty notes.

My absolute top 3 favorite reds when it comes to nail polish. So gorgeous! A bit of a darker tone than bright red and that's why it makes it so classy. A must have in you stash.

Essie Party on a platform
I always love nail polish from Essie but mostly I own some fun spring colors. With this new red one in my stash I'm sure its a keeper!

YSL Rouge Dada. 
So so gorgeous! A deep red and it stays on my nails for a long time.

Then last but definitely not least because this is my nr 1 favorite ever (it comes more dark in real life) is the Chanel #71 Laque Rouge. A classic in their collection.

How cute is this rattle from Done by Deer. A lot of tho's rattles are so hysterical with all those colors.. And I like it to be more basic (I hope Jolie too ..;)). So I came across this beauty in a store full of fun babystuff.
Not the cheapest one .. but very good quality and o so pretty!

Obsessed with this new highlighter! Easy to mix in your foundation for a glow.. Easy to trow in your bag or for traveling. And because of the creamy structure it last on the skin for such a long time. I love it.
It comes in 3 different colors.

It provides a 25h hydration with Hyaluronic acid and anti-fatigue complex of Ruscus extract with Vitamin E as an antioxidant.  Golden pigments and liquid oil are producing a reflective film which enhances the features with a unified diffused light. Ultra fine strobing micro pearls boost the light level.
No1 Daylight – for lighter skintones to create a reflective mirror effect
    No2 Sunrise - for lighter skintones to create a rosy glow
    N03 Sunset – for medium to darker skintones to create a healthy glow
I must say.. for my skintone this is perfect so not always listen to the description :)

At this moment I am in Barcelona (YAAAY!) hoping to get my tan on ;) Time for a review from Collistar with a few of their sun protection products.

Supertanning dry oil
An easy-to-use formula ensuring a rapid tan and velvety skin. Rich in vitamin E and oils of calendula, hazelnut, apricot kernel, carrot and walnut shell, it nourishes and moisturizes the skin, leaving it soft and smooth. Thanks to its special texture it is quickly absorbed, leaves no traces and can also be used to protect the hair from the sun and salt.
"Love this stuff!"

After sun Balm
Thanks to its rich consistency, this precious balm is the perfect after sun product for anyone who wants extra softness and wellbeing. Its secret is the formula that contains vegetable oils, vitamins, aloe vera, glycerol and plant extracts that are intensely nourishing and hydrating.
"The smell of this though.."

Magic serum Multi-action perfect hair.

A genuine beauty elixir for the hair, not only by the sea, but also when you get home. A brand new multi-active, multi-purpose specialty that: 1. protects from the sun, salt, wind, chlorine, and the heat of straighteners and hairdryer 2. prevents colour from fading 3. hydrates, strengthens and prevents split ends 4. leaves hair soft, full of body and bright 5. untangles and makes styling easier It is light so it doesn't weigh hair down. It can be used on wet or dry hair.  A hydrating and effective emulsion that is perfect for fine hair, which it leaves voluminous and full of body, and thick hair, to tame it. It has a wonderful new flowery, fruity fragrance that recalls the scents of summer, and which combines a flowery heart and a warm, rounded base of Woods, musk and vanilla with delicious notes of bergamot, mandarin, apricot, peach and apple.

"I always forget to wear extra protection for my hair in the summer. So this stands on my cabin on the bathroom so I cant forget!"

Active Protection Sun Spray SPF 50.
An absolute must-have, not only for people at risk from sunburn, but for anyone who wants to feel totally safe in the sun. This highly advanced suntan product is the result of an expert combination of a special tanning formula with a handy 360° nozzle allowing rapid and perfect application to the whole body, including the areas that are more difficult to reach, without having to rub or massage. The texture? Light but ultra-protective, refreshing, clear and water-resistant, it is perfect for children, people who play sports, or anyone who wants a light texture that is instantly absorbed. What's more, precisely because it is non-greasy, it can be used on the scalp on shaved heads, and it is irreplaceable when you need to effectively protect capillaries, dark spots, moles, tattoos and scars. It is instantly absorbed and does not leave white streaks on the skin. Thanks to a formula packed with lutein and vitamin E, with antioxidant and anti-age properties, and jojoba oil and prickly pear extract with extraordinary moisturizing and soothing properties, it leaves the skin incredibly soft, silky and moisturized. The absence of perfume, colorants, parabens, silicones, mineral oils, known allergens and nickel (< 0.0001%) make this specialty even more gentle.

"Gosh I really don't like this stuff.. I'ts so extremely shiny.. no lovely smell.. no I will now use this one.
It's easy because it's a spray but that is the only positive side from this product of you ask me."

French skincare, I love it! As you all know I love to stock when I am in Paris but i'ts also nice to have it close to home. Today I am reviewing a few products from the brand Guinot.
I've heard a lot about this.

Gently remove make-up without disturbing your pH balance, while soothing tightness and dryness. Guinot Moisture Rich Cleansing Milk has delicate floral scent to ensure your skin regains a feeling of comfort and is left supple and velvety.

Completes make-up removal, tones and soothes the skin.
- Alcohol-free and foaming surfactant-free.
- Gives softness and flexibility back to delicate skins.

I like the cleansers but I am not blown away to be honest. I expected more of the products.
The smell is soft en lovely but my skin does not feel dat clean.

What a gorgeous bottle right?! A new lighter version of the Eau de parfum.

The fragrance is announced as a "plumetes" version of the original, light and airy. "Plummets", drawing meaning from the French word for feather, is a fine and lightweight fabric woven with dots or figures on a plain background, having a feather or embroidered effect.

Mon Paris Eau de Toilette retains the "white chypre" olfactory signature of the original. Intoxicating datura flower that ruled the EDP edition becomes more airy in the new version, with its top notes mixing bergamot, blackberry, raspberry and pink pepper. The floral heart includes notes of datura, white peony, sambac jasmine and orange blossom. The base consists of patchouli from Guatemala, synthetic cashmere, ambrox and white musk. Like the original, the Eau de Toilette is also developed by the perfume trio of Olivier Cresp, Harry Fremont and Dora Baghriche-Arnaud.

The bottle retains its design of multi-faceted massive glass enhanced by a lavallière with a plumetes finish, knotted at the top. The ribbon is softer, designed from a fishnet mesh. The fragrance is available as a 30, 50 and 90 ml Eau de Toilette

We've spend the weekend in Paris and I loved being back again in these gorgeous streets.
Picked my outfits weeks before I left of course!

Loving this most comfortabel pants ever from American Vintage. The navy-white stripes makes it very Parisian. De blouse with dots are from Primark and the blazer also in my favorite color "blush" is from Zara. Finishing the look with some Converse Allstars and my lovely Chanel bag.
Comfortabel chic!
