Catrice Professional Contouring Palette

I think my contouring game has involved quit a bit over the past years. I started with a Sleek bronzer that's beautiful for bronzing but is way too orange for contouring. Then I discovered the a brown blusher by H&M I love that one but I did want to try something else after using that every single day. That's why I bought this Catrice Contouring palette.

BHcosmetics 18 color eyeshadow and lipstick palette

This is the 18 Color Eyeshadow & Lipstick Palette by Shaaanxo for BHcosmetics. When I first saw swatches of this palette I knew I was going to buy it and last week it finally arrived. It's a very pretty looking pink palette with a bokeh effect. The palette is dual sided which is quite genius, by dividing the palette you won't have any eyeshadow mixing with the lipsticks.

Stash: Catrice Lip Products

Last week I was reorganizing my makeup stash and I realized something. I had quite a lot of Catrice lipsticks and glosses. Therefore, in today's post, I will show you all my Catrice lip products. I'm first going to show you the packaging and at the end of the post you can find swatches of every single colour.

Catrice Blush Artist Shading Palette

Today I'm showing you one of the products I hauled a while back. This little palette was part of the new products Catrice launched back in February. I'm talking about the Blush Artist Shading Palette which is available in three shades, a bronze version, coral version and the pink version I bought. In the palette you'll find three shades. The palettes are called the blush palettes but depending on the palette, there are also shades in there that you can use as bronzer or highlighter. The bronze one has a bronzer, blush and highlighter while the pink one I have only has blushes and a highlighter. At the end of this post I've linked to some reviews by other bloggers of the other shades.

Lancôme Juicy Shaker In Mangoes Go Wild

When I saw these were launching I immediately knew I would buy one, they just looked way too cute not to. I'm talking about the new Lancôme Juicy Shakers, a bi-phase pigment infused lip oil that looks just like a cocktail shaker. I got the shade Mangoes Go Wild but in total there are thirteen shades in total. There's also a limited edition shade called Min To Be which I also really wanted but was out of stock when I ordered. Mint To Be is clear but because of it's blue undertone it makes your teeth look great.

Maybelline The Blushed Nudes

I'll admit, I have way too many neutral palettes, that's the main reason why I never bought the Maybelline The Nudes eyeshadow palette. That's also why I was so happy Maybelline brought out the Blushed Nudes version. A nude eyeshadow palette with pink shades and undertones.

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector

In today's post I'm showing you a much raved about lip product that I have been wanting for a long time, the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector. I got mine in the shade 04 Petal Shimmer, a shimmery light pink shade. Like I said, I've had my eye on these for quite a while now but I never bought them because Catrice has a dupe in their assortment, the Beautifying Lip Smoothers. I own two of those and I use them regularly because they're really good. Still I always kept longing for the Clarins one, I know that sounds dramatic but it's the truth. A Dutch store called Douglas regularly has coupons which give you 25% off of lipstick or gloss and since I wanted to order a Lancôme Juicy Shaker I thought why not, and ordered the real deal.

NOTD: Essence Colour & Care

Today's post is one of those were I show my nails, a NOTD. Lately I've been only wearing Essie nail polishes because those just last the best on my nails but when I saw this one in my Instagram feed I had to pick it up. This is an Essence polish from the new Colour&Care line. I got a pale pink/purple shade called '03 Happy Nails'.

Things I've been Watching #5

Some sad new today, I accidentally deleted the 'Things I've Been Watching #5 post. I usually write my reviews about the movies and series in these posts right after I watch it and now my reviews of 6 things are gone. I'm not going to write them again because some of the things have been over a month ago and I really like to write them fresh after watching something. I do keep track of the things I watch by using lists on IMDB and the app Seen It, therefore i can tell you what movies and series were in that deleted post. I watched 3 movies, American Hustle, Coyote Ugly and Joy. I finished up the serie Hart of Dixie, watched the two seasons of The Librarians and also season season 2 of Ex On The Beach. So quite a lot and I'm very bummed that all my reviews are gone. Joy way my favourite btw. Moving on to movies and series with reviews now.
I've finished yet another season of New Girl, only 10 episodes to go and I'm no longer behind . New Girl is just never able to disappoint me, this season was just as good as the previous ones and I cannot wait to watch the next. Just like all seasons New Girl is about quirky Jess, a middle-school vice-principle who lives in an apartment with Nick, Schmidt, Coach and Winston. A recipe for funny situations that will make you cry out with laughter. IMDB rating: 7.8 My rating: 8 My Best Friend's Wedding is one of those classic romantic comedies, from 1997 so I was one years old when this came out. It's about Julianne and she realizes she loves her long-time friend right when she finds out he's engaged. She goes to steel him away from his fiance and this is a recipe for disaster. I don't want to spoil the ending but for some reason it was very predictable even though it wasn't made to be predictable. You'll understand what I mean if you watch it. I won't watch this again probably because it wasn't very good but if you have nothing to watch and this is on television, it's a good movie to waste time with.
IMDB rating: 6.3 My rating: 6 Kingsman is a movies that I've been wanting to watch but never got around to actually watch. I ended up watching this with my brother and let me tell you, this one is very funny. It's quite a violent movie about a British spy organization who has to recruit a new agent when one of their agents dies. The movie focuses around one of those recruits, how he gets trained and how he saves the world. Like I said, it was really funny (read: heads exploding into colourful fireworks) and I was crying with laughter at the end.
IMDB rating: 7.8 My rating: 7.5 I don't know why it took me so long to watch this movie. This is the second part of the Divergent series about Beatrice Prior. She is a divergent person who tries to fight against her society as she knows it falling apart but ends up stirring everything up. I've read the first two books and now I'm caught up with the movies but I do think the books are better. I cannot really explain why, they just are. Time to read the last book and watch the last movie, I'm really curious to see how it ends because I have absolutely no idea.
IMDB rating: 6.3 My rating: 6.5
Soof is a movie I've watched in the cinema when it came out and now it was broadcast on television and I watched it again. This is one of the few Dutch movies I actually like. Normally I get really annoyed by but not this one. Soof is about a 40 year old mother of three who has a small catering business. Then that business blows up because of a fling with a famous choreographer. This is obviously bad for her marriage, everything goes wrong and in the end everything turns out okay. I like the humor in this movie a lot, it's not obvious but it;s very funny.
IMDB rating: 6.6 My rating: 7
And here's the Disney movie in this post, the good dinosaur. A movie about a world where dinosaurs live like humans and humans act like dogs. I didn't think I'd like this movie as much as I did. It was awesome, I laughed and I cried, and I would definitely recommend it.
IMDB rating: 6.8 My rating: 7.5
