Guerlain 4 Seasons Terracotta powder


Because our teint changes during the entire year (depending on the season), Guerlain made a 4 seasons terracotta powder.
This powder is perfect to use everyday, no matter what season we are in, to give you that sunkissed look.





This terracotta powder is perfect to add that soft sunkissed glow to your skin.

This 4 seasons palette is made out of 4 different colors.
During wintertime you only use the upper two colors, in summer time the bottom two.
When autumn or spring is there, you use a combination of all 4 colors for the perfect look.
In this powder we can also find 24k gold and an anti-ageing complex.
This powder is not only makeup, but keeps your skin healthy and good-looking

I absolutely love this powder and I think it is awesome that I don't need to buy a new terracotta when the seasons are changing and my tan is too.


The palette you see on the picture above, is the 02 Natural Blondes palette.
Guerlain made a palette for every skintype, perfect!



On the swatches you can see that this 4 seasons Terracotta powder gives me a healthy sunkissed glow, that isn't too dark.
I have used the bottom two colors from the 4 seasons terracotta powder.
In summer I will be using the upper two colors from the palette bevause in summer I am tanned a little more.

This palette is available in your local perfumery for only € 61,65.
I bought mine at Ici Paris XL.



What do you think about this palette? 
Will you try it out?

Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara (X-mas edition)


Dior a very famous brand, and they have a good name.
Their makeup is from very good quality.

I was very surprised when I saw that Dior made a Christmas edition set from their Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara.




As you can see in this set is a Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara and a mini eyeshadow palette.
The great thing is, you only pay the price of the mascara and you get the mini-eyeshadow palette for free 
(and who doesn't love a free gift :D )

I immediately fell in love with this mini eyeshadow palette, it is way too cute to use it :D
I think I am going to keep this as a collectible item :D

The brush from this mascara is curved a little.
As the name says allready, this mascara is going to make your lashes curl very nicely.




As you can see on the picture above, the mascara curls my lashes but it doesn't separate my lashes.
I don't know if I like this mascara, I like the fact that my lashes are curled, but the stick together and that is not what I want from a mascara.

I just have to keep on searching for a good mascara that gives my lashes extra curl and volume and that separates my lashes too (I am so demanding :D )

But I don't think that buying this mascara was a mistake, I love the eyeshadow! :D


This mascara set is for sale at Ici Paris Xl for only € 33,00.
This set is only available for a limited time only, so hury!



What do you think about this mini-eyeshadow palette?
Will you be buying this set?

Max & More absolute nudes eyeshadow - Naked Smoky dupe




I love this time of the year.
So many nice products are made in wintertime, perfect gifts to put under the christmas tree ;)


This 'Absolute Nudes' eyeshadow palette was made by the brand 'Max&More'. 
One of the cheapest brands I know, and the quality is amazing too.

 

On the back of this eyeshadow palette there is a small 'how to'-guide for the starters in beautyworld among us.
The guide on the back is to create a subtle smokey look.
Talking about smokey, this palette reminds me of another famous palette...




This palette is a great dupe for the Urban Decay Smoky palette.
Some of the colors are similar to the Smoky palette.
We can find some colors with shimmer and some matte colors.

Of course this palette isn't 100% exactly the same as the Smoky palette from Urban Decay, but I would recommend it for the price you pay this one.



 When I take a look at the swatches from this Absolutely Nudes palette, 
I am so satisfied I bought this one.
The colors are very wel pigmented and do not have too much fallout (less fallout than the Urban Decay palettes).



This eyeshadow palette from Max&More is for sale in Action for only € 1,99.
I have to say, the price is great and you get awesome quality in return.


What do you think about this palette?
Will you get yours too?

Urban Decay - Gwen Stefani palette


Oh my god!
For the first time ever Urban Decay has released a limited edition palette that was created with a celebrity.
The celebrity I am talking about, is Gwen Stefani. 
And really, she did a great job!



Everything about this palette was designed by Gwen Stefani herself.
Every detail on this palette is based on her love for black-and-white graphics.
I must say, I like the box better than the actual look of the palette itself. But that's just my personal opinion.


ps: When you open your box, there are also 4 samples of Gwen Stefani's lipsticks that she created with Urban Decay.
According to Gwen Stefani, these four shades are a must-have in your lipstick collection.
She created shades in different colors and textures.
Love it!


Gwen Stefani also chose the colors for this palette.
Of course it was hard, imagine yourself picking ONLY 15 shades to create your own palette? 
I would not be able to do that!
Luckily, Gwen Stefani was able to choose 15 of her favourite Urban Decay colors.
She included some must have nudes and a few jewel tones to mix things up.
With this palette, you can create a huge range of her most iconic looks.





When I swatched this palette, I was a little bit dissapointed by the top row of colors. 
These colors are not so pigmented. 
The other colors in this palette are awesome and wel pigmented.
I imagine doing all kind of looks with this palette, I can't wait to try it out.

My favourite colors are: baby, pop and 1987.



This palette is available on www.urbandecay.com or www.iciparisxl.be for € 52,00/
If you want to have this palette be quick, this is only a limited edition palette!

What are your favourite colors?

Merry Berry collection by Essence



Essence released a new limited edition collection for the holidays, calles 'Merry Berry'.

In this collection there are several items, a gold dust spray, eyeshadow, highlighter, lipsticks,...

But I will only be showing you the highlighter and the lipsticks. 
These items are the only ones that really caught my eye.



How gorgeous is this highlighter?
I like the star pattern in it, it gives me a 'holiday season mood' :)



And then we have these lipsticks.
The lipsticks in the Merry Berry collection comes in three different colors.

Normally the lipsticks should have a matte finish, but when I used them they were still a little bit shiny for me.
Allthough that these lipsticks aren't matte, I like them a lot.
I love the fact that they are shiny, but not too shiny :)


Swatches

Let's take a look at the swatches from the highlighting powder and these lipsticks.


Here you can see some swatches I made on my arm.
Off course everything looks different when you use it on you lips or face. 
That's why I also made lipswatches and a cheek-swatch for you guys.


Wow, this highlighter will definitely be one of my favourite highlighting powders.
It gives such a nice glow on your skin, but not too shiny (I don't want to look like a disco ball)




The lipsticks are okay, but not great. 
The pigmentation of these lipsticks dissapointed me a little. 
I had to apply 3 layers before the color was as shown on the package.

My favourite color is 1 - let's the berry-tales begin (which reminded me of the Hunger Games :D)
The difference between color 02 and 03 is not so noticeable.
'02 pink & perfect' has more of a coral finish.
Color '03 red rocks' (as the name says allready) has a redish finish.




I do like this collection and I will definitely buy some more of these highligting powders because I am in love with it :D

Merry Berry highlighting powder - € 3,39
Merry berry lipsticks - € 2,39

MUA Elysium Palette


The brand MUA released a new eyeshadow palette: the Elysium Palette.
I have always been a fan of the MUA products.
The quality of their products is so great and you don't pay a lot for them.



When you look at the palette, you see that there are 10 eyeshadow colors in it.
4 matte eyeshadows and 6 shimmery ones.

For the first time ever, MUA includes a duo eyeliner in an eyeshadow palette.
The eyeliner comes in the colors black and beige.
Black to put on your  upper lashline, and beige to put on your waterline to make your eyes look bigger.


The pigmentation of this palette is, as usual with the MUA palettes, very good.
But as known, you have to be carefull for fallout because the colors have a very powdery texture.
I like this palette a lot.
This palette reminds me of the Urban Decay Naked palettes.
But this is of course a cheaper variation of it ;)




For this Elysium Palette you only pay € 7,99 in your local drugstore.



Will you buy this new MUA Elysium Palette?

Only You mini eyeshadow palette (Christmas edition)


It's that time in the year, that a lot of brands release a limited editon Christmas collection.
And so did 'Only You', a budget brand.
Let's take a closer look at these gorgeous palettes.


When I saw the box where the palette comes in, I was allready thinking about Christmas.
Red is a color that we all associate with Christmas and so are the golden stars on the packaging.
Although that this brand, is a budget brand, the packaging looks very stylish to me.


When I take the palettes out of their packaging, they are completely black with golden accents on them. 
The black and gold on this palette gives the impression that this palette is expensive :D
I love the look of this palette.



When I opened the palettes, I was amazed!
The colors look so great.
Each palette comes with 6 eyeshadow colors and 1 highlighting color.
Each palette has 4 shimmery eyeshadow colors and 2 matte ones.
Let's take a look at the colors.




 I was surprised by this palette, the pigmantation is good, but not to overwhelming.
I normally don't use black or dark colors because the pigmentation comes out to dark for me.
But these colors are great.

Amazing!




 This palette is also amazing.
The colors have a perfect pigmentation and are gorgeous.
I like the colors a lot.

My favourite of these two palettes is the black one because I was looking for a palette like that one since ages.
Maybe the black one is my favourite because I allready have a lot of palettes with brown colors in it (Naked, MUA,...).





These palettes are available at Ici Paris XL for only € 3,95.
So cheap in my opinion!



Will you buy one of these palettes? 
If yes, which one?


 Let's create some more art together!
