Urban Decay Naked Heat & Vice Fuel Lipstick

Urban Decay Naked Heat

I've been waiting for quite some time now, 
and finally it's here!
Meet my two new babies that joined my makeup family: 
Urban Decay Naked Heat palette and Vice Fuel Lipstick.

Urban Decay Naked Heat

Urban Decay launched 12 brand new shades, that are hotter than before.
There are some amber-hued neutrals, including warm browns, burnt oranges and rich siennas.
This is a palette that Urban Decay really missed in their collection.

Urban Decay Naked Heat

This palette has more matte than shimmery shades and I love it!
This palette really surprised me with the quality of the pigmentation.
The swatches of these colors can be found at the end of this blogpost.

With this palette you can create a warm toned daytime look, or an intensely smokey nighttime look and even everything in between.
This palette really is a musthave!

Urban Decay Naked Heat Fuel Lipstick

But of course to finish of a look you also need lipstick.
That is why I bought myself this pretty lady: Vice Lipstick Fuel.
This is a cream lipstick that comes in a special packaging.
The sleeve of this lipstick is also 'heat inspired' because it also has that warm orange color.

Urban Decay Naked Heat swatches

The swatches are really just one swipe with my finger.
As you can see the colors are really pigmented and I just love every single one of them.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Youtube

On my YouTube channel (sorry but that one is Dutch), I also created a look with this palette. If you would like to check it out, you can do that here.

Essence - Fall/Winter Nails Collection

When July is over, the sales are also over.
But that means also there are a lot of new things coming into our favourite stores.
And guess what, Essence sent me a preview of what to expect in their new collection.
Every day I am showing you guys some newbies that are joining the Essence makeup assortiment.
Today I am going over the new nail products.
 I already reviewed the new lip products in this blogpost, and the new face&eye products in Yestersday's post.

Metal Shock Nail Powder - € 2,99

OMG! That were the first letters I could think of when I saw this release.
I've been a duochrome fan since the trend started a while ago.
Now Essence is following that trend and they are releasing their on powder.

You just need to appy the nail powder when the nail polish underneath is still a little bit damp.
Rub it on softly with your fingers.
One layer of the powder gives a very soft mirror affect, but if you really wan those 'Instagram Nails', then you should apply 2 or even 3 layers of it and it will look stunning.

These metal powder will come in 6 different shades, I can't wait to try them all!

Metal Shock Sealing Top Coat - € 2,99

After applying your metal powder onto your nails, you need to seal the powder with this metal shock sealing top coat.
It can also be used on any other nail polish as a normal top coat.

Brushed metals nail polish - € 1,99
Nails in Vibrant metal shades, that is what Essence is expecting during the Fall and Winter season.
That is why they launched these brushed metal nail polishes.
They will come with satin, matte or sand effects in the coolest shades!
The color on the picture above is 05 - I'm cool with it

Holo Rainbow nail polish - € 2,89
Essence will launch 5 different shades with a holographic look and some sparkles,
that will make your nails shine!
The color on the picture above is 01- Hello Holo

Essence - Fall/Winter Face & Eyes Collection

Essence new makeup

When July is over, the sales are also over.
But that means also there are a lot of new things coming into our favourite stores.
And guess what, Essence sent me a preview of what to expect in their new collection.
Every day I am showing you guys some newbies that are joining the Essence makeup assortiment.
Today I am going over the new face and eye products.
Yesterday I reviewed the new lip products in this blogpost.

Essence concealer palette

Correct to perfect cc concealer palette - € 3,59

This color correcting concealer palette has 4 shades to cover up everything you don't want to be seen anymore.
So which color you use for what kind of problem?

Green concealer can be used to cover up redness.
Yellow concealer is perfect to hide purple ( like in dark circles) or bruises.
Purple/Blue can be used to hide unwanted yellow undertone of your skin.
When you have a pale skintone, please don't touch the orange concealer.
This one is perfect for darker skintypes to cover up spots or dark circles.

I really like working with these concealers, apart from the orange one, that one I will probably never use because it won't do anything on my skin that will make my skin look better.

Essence fresh fit primer

Fresh & Fit awake primer - € 3,59

This primer can be used alone, or under your foundation.
This light texture that also reflects light will make your skin look more even, smooth and fresh.
Plus point is, that is will also make your makeup last longer.
This primer contains vitamines and cranberry water, which gives it an amazing fragrance as well!

essence metal chrome blush

Metal Chrome Blush - € 2,99

This is a soft metallic blush that contains soft pigments in rosé gold, copper and bronze.

10 - My name is gold, rosé gold.

esssence prismatic hololighter

Prismatic hololighter stick - € 3,59

This is a handy highlighting stick with a cool undertone (YES! Finally).
this highlighter stick has a holographic finish on your skin and will make your skin look very healthy.
I absolutely love it!

Tip for you:
Be careful when using this, because my stick fell out of the tube because I was over enthusiastic. 
So be careful when you open this stick so the highlighter won't fall out ;)

essence prismatic hololighter stick swatch

The color used on this swatch is 10 - be unique be a unicorn

essence vibrant shock

 Vibrant Shock Lach & Brow Gel Mascara - € 2,89

This Gel-mascara can add color onto your lashes or your brows.

I wasn't able to make a swatch picture with this one on my brows, because my camera wouldn't focus.
But believe me, this is a musthave if you like experimenting with color!

Essence will be releasing some very high pigmented cream eyeshadows with a metallic finish.
I am absolutely sure when you use this eyeshadow, it will make your eyes pop!

Essence lipsticks always combine high coverage and great colors in one lipstick!
You will have extremely good coverage on your lips, without the lipstick feeling to heavy on your lips.
It feels like you're not wearing anything at all!
The formula of the lipstick is little bit creamy, so it doesn't dry our your lips.
I am an absolute fan!
I even found a lip pencil that goes with this new lipstick, take a look at my swatch down below.

Essence fall winter makeup

The lipstick I used here is Ultra Last Instant Colour Lipstick
in the color 05- SO UN - GREY - TFULL,
and the lip pencil is the soft contouring lipliner in the color 11 - Sucker for grey.

Essence fall winter makeup

Kiss the... Lipstick - € 1,99

One of my favourite lip products, are the 'Kiss the...' lipsticks.
These are lipsticks that come in a vibrant color, but they won't be as vibrant on your lips.
This lipstick reacts to the pH-value of your lips and make the lipstick turn into your own special color.
My 'Kiss The Frog' lipstick turned out soft pink and I really like it.

Essence fall winter makeup

Off course there is more coming but I only show the products I really tested out myself so keep an eye on the Essence counter.

Sleek - Cleopatra's Kiss Highlighting Palette

Sleek highlighter palette review

As you might (or might not) know, I am a huge fan of highlighters.
I was really excited when the news reached me that Sleek released a new highlighting palette: Cleopatra's Kiss.
In this blogpost I will be comparing this palette with another one of my favourites: Sleek Solstice.
Keep reading to see the new Sleek beauty!

Sleek highlighter palette review

In the picture here above you can see both palettes, laying gorgeous next to each other.
Don't they look amazing?

Every Sleek highlighting palette is suitable for every skintone and skintypes.
Let's take a closer look at these two Sleek highlighting palettes.

Sleek solstice review

The first one that I am showing you, is the very known Sleek Solstice palette.
This palette contains one creamy highlighter, two baked powders and one extremely shimmery powder.
I am a huge fan of the baked highlighters in this palette.
Although, the pigmentation of every texture in this palette is simply amazing.
This palette really gives your skin a radiant and healthy glow.
It can be used on your face and body.
(swatches can be seen at the end of this blogpost)

sleek cleopatra's kiss revies

And here we have our Sleek's new baby: Cleopatra's Kiss.
This is Solstice new baby sister.
This Sleek palette contains two baked highlighters and two creamy ones.

This palette can be used onto your face and body to give it a luminous, golden glow.
Now let's compare this new pretty one with the known Solstice palette.

Sleek highlighter review

On the left side you can see swatches from the Sleek Solstice palette and on the right the new Cleopatra's Kiss palette.
As you can see Solstice is more pinkish and light, 
while Cleopatra's Kiss contains more golden and warm highlighters.

If you ask me to choose a favourite palette, I wouldn't be able to make a choice because I both love them.
They both are stunning and stay so good on your skin.

Knowing that these palettes only cost € 13,99 each, this really is a musthave in your makeup stash!
Get your palette here!

Which palette is your favourite out of these two?

Essence 15 Years - Birthday Bash Berlin

Essence is turning 15 years this year, and that needs to be celebrated!
That was the main reason Essence threw a birthday bash party in Berlin.
I was there and I am going to show you guys everything you need to know about this birthday party in Berlin.

As mentioned above, the party took place in Berlin.
Not just any place in Berlin, but in the Tempodrom.
This is an event hall where several concerts and happening are organised.
I was really surprised Essence arranged this location, it looks stunning right?

In the Tempodrom itself there were performances by several artists, I wasn't able to take a camera with me so I don't have pictures of them.
But their shows were great to look at!

The event hall was decorated in a lot of pink.
Cushions, balloons, flags,.. 
Everything to throw a girly party was there!

At the event, there was also a 'Cosnova Lounge'.
This was the VIP lounge where all the bloggers could drink something, have a snack and just chill a little bit.
As you might know, Cosnova is the company behind the makeup creations of Essence and Catrice.
So that explains the name of this lounge.

 As my '+1' I took my boyfriend to the event to discover the world of blogging and makeup with me.
Here you see a picture of us, chilling in the Cosnova lounge and enjoying a curry snack.
It was delicious!

But now, the real highlight of this event for me: creating your custom made lipgloss.
I have waited for over 2 hours in line, but I made it to the 'laboratory'.
When you take a closer look at the picture here above, you can spot me and my boyfriend on the left.
Yes, my boyfriend even created a lipgloss for me (he's the best!).

An Essence co-worker is putting my custom made lip color into a lipgloss tube,
 it was so fascinating watching this proces!

And here I am, proud of my lipgloss!
I am holding the cup where I created my color in, and off course the finished product:
the 'Art,This is Art-lipgloss 'which I absolutely love!

At every good event, there is also a photobooth to make a lasting memory of your event.
I stood in the line for 10 minutes, and got a great Essence picture in return.

This picture really is a great reminder of an even greater event.
I really want to thank Essence for having me.

An off course there was a goodiebag, but that I will show you in a later blogpost.

What would your custom made lip color look like?
