Like I told you before I went a bit crazy with my beauty buys. Probably for some people it’s still not that much, but I have never bought so many products at once. I’m very economical with my beauty products. Never buy a new product before my old one is finished (except when the product is not up to my standards) Why? Spending loads of money on beauty products which just stand there, is just a waist. And I have better things to spend my money on.
Even though I spend a lot on beauty products in Thailand, everything I bought I
My biggest expense was the Lolita 206 pallet of Marc Jacobs. I actually wanted to buy the naked-3 pallets from urban decay, but “No have, coming soon” they said. So I looked for other brands in the hope to find a similar pallet. I eventually choose this one of Marc Jacob’s because it’s very pigmented.
I am using it for a while now and I have to say I’m not too crazy about it. I love the mat color and they go on well, but the shimmery ones are not my thing. They will do for a night out, but then I prefer to wear darker colors instead of nudes.
In the same Sephora shop I also bought their tonic and eye make-up remover and I love them. This brand has such a high quality for reasonable prizes. I checked if I could buy them also in the Netherlands and found this website. So Sephora, you got yourself a new customer. (And later found out I could buy the naked-3 pallet from there, dumb dumb dumb me)
Later on, during my holiday, I went back to their shop and also bought some make-up of their brand. I got a darker red lipstick, eye pencil and a green eye shadow. I love the green eye shadow, because I have brown eyes with a bid off green in them, so a darker green eye shadow goes really well for me.
I also bought the BB cream of Tarte here. I’m not a foundation kind of girl so having a BB cream is ideal. Even though I still don’t use it every day I like to know I have to option on the more “heavier days”. And I’m pleased with this product. It stays on so good that it takes me some extra effort to get it off at end of my day.
When we were walking around in one of the many shopping malls my man saw this silver glitter nail polish. I had to buy it because he loved it so much. After putting it on I was sold too. And it only cost me 2.30 euro (in the Netherland they are 8 euro), and the quality is amazing. So I ran back to the shop and bought me seven more colors. I love the red, silver, blue and the blue glitz nail polish. I’m not so crazy about the quality of the pearl and taupe color. They are a bit sticky and don’t dry-up well. Am a bit disappointed, but hey, I got 4 amazing colors under 10 euro. I also bought of the Revlon brand their cover stick. I’m pleased with it, and it’s doing the job.
After all it was a shock on how much I spend on make-up. But it gives me so much joy and you can’t put a price on happiness (and looking good)
