TARTE AMAZONIAN CLAY BLUSH PALETE HOLIDAY 2016

11. oktober 2016

Hi guys! Omg I’m so excited for todays blog post. I got my hands on the iconic Tarte blush wheel for holiday 2016, I didn’t get it last year. This is so important, because I’ve always wanted Tarte’s blushes but felt like they were a bit expensive, so getting this blush wheel with 10 blushes for almost nothing is INSANE. And can we talk about packaging? I died. Seriously. Purple and gold = my two favorite colors, this is perfection.

This is an exclusive, double-sided cheek palette with 10 new, blush and highlight shades.

Limited-edition shades include:

  • mod (peachy coral)
  • deco (poppy pink)
  • surreal (hot pink)
  • culture (coral shimmer)
  • idol (nude shimmer)
  • concept (pink nude)
  • icon (dusty rose)
  • montage (pink mauve)
  • ironic (berry rose)
  • crafty (pale pink shimmer)

With its dual-sided design, it curates five warm and five cool shades so you can mix and match with your cheek wardrobe to create the perfect, custom look. The neutral and bold, universal shades spotlight a variety of complexions with a built-in cover for mess-free portability. Powered by tarte’s long-wearing Amazonian clay, the iconic, bestselling formula balances and replenishes skin for 12 hours of fade-free, ultra-pigmented wear. It’s perfect for all skin tones!

This is the best thing I’ve ever spent money on, 100%. Super pigmented, crazy beautiful and the colors are right up my alley. Tarte also released some other blushes that comes with a brush, but I stayed away from that, because everyone said the quality was crap and they were not good at all. Thank god I got this one, it also comes with more shades. Remember if you want to pick it up, you need to hurry – it’s sold out a lot of the time + it’s limited edition. You can buy it on Tartes own website or Sephora.

The shades are a bit lighter in real life.

YVES ROCHER AUTUMN CREATION 2016 – LIMITED EDITION!

4. oktober 2016

Hej my loves! Yves Rocher har udgivet en masse lækkert makeup, som er limited edition! Det er virkelig nogle lækre ting, så selvfølgelig var jeg nødt til at dele dem med jer.

Illuminating Powder Duo: Yves Rocher har fanget årstidens skønhed i en palet af varme farver, som forskønnes af glitrende kobber. Dette er en perfekt kombination af to nuancer: en perlemorsskinnende nuance og en med kobberglimmer. Du kan påføre pudderet med lette strøg på pande, kindben, hage og næsetip for et solkysset look. Den er virkelig pigmenteret og så smuk på huden! Cirkapris 129,-

Botanical Color Nail Polish & Coppery Top Coat Effect: Jeg har fået den ene af farverne (en rigtig smuk grøn) og den er beriget med naturlig elemiharpiks for maksimal glans. Takket være den vifteformede pensel er det let at følge neglens form for et professionelt, jævnt resultat med en fantastisk farveintensitet. Og det er den virkelig – mega intens farve og det er det gør den så flot! Jeg har aldrig været vild med grøn neglelak, men hold nu op hvor er den sindssyg smuk. Min mor stjal den hurtigt fra mig og lagde den på med det samme – hun er heller ikke fan af grøn neglelak, men det er vi begge blevet. WOW! Jeg har aldrig før prøvet Yves Rocher’s neglelakker, men jeg skal helt klart have fat i flere, for de er sindssygt smukke på neglene. Farve: 77 Vert pin. Cirkapris 39,-

Coppery Top Topcoat er også vildt smuk, uanset hvilken nuance din neglelak har, kan du nu give den et kobberglitrende touch. Det er lige mig! Cirkapris 39,-

Mascara Vertige Longueur: Mikrobørste med maksimal effekt! Denne mascara er beriget med elemigummi, som forlænger, bøjer og fikserer vipperne for fænomenal længde og definition.  Den er blå, så ved ikke lige, hvor tit jeg kommer til at bruge den, men du får rigtig flotte vipper! Cirkapris 119,-

Eye Pencils 2 i 1: En blød eyeliner, der kan bruges som både eyeliner og øjenskygge. Skinnende og glitrende nuancer for det helt rigtige look. Farven holder længe, men er samtidig let at fjerne og respekterer sarte øjne. GUYS, jeg elsker dem her! Jeg stod faktisk og manglede en ikke-sort eyeliner og en eyeliner som også kan bruges til øjenskygge, for den perfekte base. Det er de smukkeste farver og helt klart mine favoritter! Cirkapris 69,-

Det var det hele! Jeg synes virkelig det er nogle fede produkter 🙂

WHY YOUR BEAUTYBLENDER GETS MOLDY AND WHAT TO DO!

3. oktober 2016

Hi guys! We all love our amazing beautyblender and it’s hard to live without, that’s why it’s important to take care of it the right way!  After all, they’re not the cheapest. It’s recommended that if you take care of it good enough, you need to change sponge every 3 months for sanitary reasons. You can obviously go a little longer if there’s nothing wrong, but you do need to throw it out after a while. I wouldn’t go more than 5 months. A problem a lot of people come across, is the fact that it gets moldy which .. EW! I’ve experienced it myself and a lot of people don’t know why, so I thought it was important to make a blog post. Just in case someone doesn’t know.

The beautyblender only gets moldy when it gets wet and then you put in an air tight place. I’ve often made the mistake thinking it was dry enough and then put it away – big mistake. I can’t have it out in my room to stand and dry because I have two lovely cats that think it’s REALLY fun to play with (rip to my old ones), so I have to put it somewhere else. It’s not good enough to just put it in a drawer, because that’s yet again an air tight place. SO, if you don’t have cats that steal them, you just have to make sure you dry it somewhere with ventilation and it isn’t completely sealed in a damp container and it won’t grow mold. Other than that, you’re safe. But make sure to clean it as often you can! It only goes bad when you don’t look after it properly.

I hoped that helped you guys. If it does grow mold, please make sure to throw it away.
