Dropped & broken: Nars Alhambra Duo.

Friday, August 30, 2013

'Oh my god, NO!', was the first thing that went trough my mind. Today, I had a little accident with my Nars eyeshadow duo. I dropped my makeup bag... and I knew immediateley that something would be broken. I opened the little palette and this is what I saw:

The damage is not that bad, I know. I could have been much worse.Nars eyeshadows are very buttery and soft do I recommend to be careful with these. It's the first time this happened to me and although it's a bummer, it's a bit funny too. From now on, I think I'll be a bit more careful with these.

I also wanted to give a quick update: I'm almost done with my exams so I'll be able to write more blogpost in about a week ;)

I'll see guys then! 
Enjoy the very last weekend of the summer!



Nail of the Day: Ciaté Antique Brooch

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Yes, you are reading the title correctly. I finally managed to get my hands on Ciaté's Antique Brooch nail polish. When an item is out of stock on the Sephora website, you can leave your e-mail address and they will sent you an e-mail to inform you that the item is in stock again. So when I got an e-mail from Sephora saying that this nail polish was available again, I didn't hesitate for a minute and ordered it immediately!

Beauty Blogger Tag (2nd Edition)

Thursday, August 8, 2013

Hey everyone! A couple of days ago, I got tagged by Sanja to do the 'Beauty Blogger Tag'. If you don't know Sanja, I suggest you check out her blog. I love it!

First of all, the rules:
  • tag the creator of the tag - Sparkle With Laughter
  • tag some more beauty bloggers you want to do the tag
  • title your post ''The beauty blogger tag''
  • answer the questions
1. Name the beauty routine you barely do!
There are too much beauty routines I don't do, haha. I rarely use foundation. When I do, I never wear a primer because I actually don't own a good primer. I need to get one, but I haven't found one that I really want to spend money on. 
I don't use heath protector when I do my hair...
And last but not least, I forget to put on moisturizer a lot. I only use when I feel like my skin needs it.  

2. Is washing your make up brushes something you regularly do?
No, not really. I wash them about once a month with a bit of makeup remover. I should clean them more often and with baby shampoo in stead of remover....

3. How long will you last with chipped nail varnish?
Normally, I can't stand chipped nail polish. But i've been walking around with Essie's 'Turqoise and Caicos' chipped like crazy for days now... I'm taking it off today!

4. How long do you put off buying/replacing a beauty or nail polish product even if you need it (ie. top coat, foundation, etc.)?
I always buy a replacement before I run out. I always have a spare bottle of makeup remover, you never know when you're gonna run out of something. :D

5. What is your worst beauty habit?
I think taking off my makeup before I go to bed. Because it's summer, I go out a lot with friends and when I get home, I go straight to bed without taking of my makeup. A habit I need to get rid of as soon as possible!

6. Name something non-beauty related you put off doing all the time?
Everything school related. Writing papers, studying for exams... Every time again, I think: This time I won't procrastinate and I'll study enough! But every single time, I begin too late with schoolwork...

7. When going out somewhere do you leave getting ready to the last minute or not?
When I go out, I really want to look good so I take my time getting ready. I'll put on some music and I really enjoy it :)

8. Can you commit to spending bans?
Sometimes. When I go shopping thinking I need something (like a new pair of jeans), I can't seem to find something decent. But when I go shopping for fun, everything fits perfectly and looks great and that results in too much spending! Life can be weird like that :)

9. How organised is your makeup and nail polish collection?
I think it's okay. I always find everything I need. You can see the way I store my makeup here. I don't have a special way to organise my nail polish, I just have two big boxes with everything in it. I try to place them by brand.

10. What is the longest time you have gone without writing a blog post? 
 The longest time I've gone without writing a blog post is almost a month, I think. That's a really long time! :D I don't know why, though...

I tag:

Thanks to Sanja for tagging me and I hope you all like this tag a lot! <3
