Kenzo Flower

Flower by Kenzo review


It's that time of the year again...
The poppy is poppin' up everywhere!
And that brings me to one of my favourite summer perfumes: Kenzo Flower.



Flower by Kenzo review


The poppy is the flower that is used by Kenzo for the visual of the Kenzo Flower perfume.
They used this flower because it is a very delicate flower that is also very strong.

Weird description I know but I'll explain it for you.
A Poppy can be found in the city (near station, near highways,...), but when you pick the flower most likely the leafs fall off.
That's why this is a very delicate flower but also very strong because it can survive in the city.


This perfume is for all the delicate, elegant but yet sensual women.


Flower by Kenzo review


Kenzo Flower was created in 2000.
In 2001 and 2003 this perfume has won the Fifi award, which is a very prestigious award in the perfume industry.


Flower by Kenzo review


Kenzo Flower is a flowery powdery perfume which is built up in 3 notes;

- floral note : violet, cassis and Bulgarian Rose
- powder note : vanilla and white musk
- soft touch of woody note



Flower by Kenzo review



Kenzo flower is a very longlasting perfume.
I've put it on at 9am, and in the evening at 8pm the scent of the perfume was still there.
Kenzo flower is a perfume that you recognize immediately when you know the smell.
It is really one of a kind.



Flower by Kenzo review


Kenzo Flower is available in 30, 50 and 100 ml.
Kenzo Flower also has an entire bath and bodyline with showergel, bodylotion, deodorant,..


Kenzo Flower 50 ml - € 70,70




Have you ever tried Kenzo Flower?

Guerlain Terracotta - Pause d'été Limited Edition 2016

Guerlain pause d'ete terracotta review



Guerlain Terracotte Pause d'été  bronzing powder duo is a limited edition powder launched by Guerlain for 2016.
As you guys know, I am an absolute bronzer addict (and highlight, lipstick, eyeshadow,.. oh my :D)

Today I am reviewing this limited edition powder by Guerlain.

The powder is packaged in a wooden compact. 
This packaging gives me an incredible luxurious feeling.
A wooden packaging is more sustainable than a plastic one.
Guerlain used wood from PEFC approved sustainably managed forest, for this effort, Guerlain gets a thumbs up!

To open op the compact, you have to turn a little with the upper lid and then the magnets aren't holding the two lids together anymore, now you can open up the compact powder.

The powder is perfumed with some notes of orange blossom, vanille, tonka bean and white musk.
The perfume comes out really good because there's a lot of fragrance added to this powder.
I love smelling it.

The luxurious wooden pack contains a wide mirror and a two-tone powder block,
a combination of the best selling Terracotta shade 03, which naturally warms all complexions, and the it-colour for summer, a pink with a slight gold shimmer, to illuminate the tan.

The powder can be used all over the face, but also on your decolleté.

The colours can either be blended together to warm the complexion and enhance the natural radiance of the tan,
or you can use the colours separately to achieve the desired intensity.
If you use a small brush, you can also use these shades separately as a bronzer, highlighter and a blush.
I prefer blending the powders together as one.

The Terracotta powder applies very easy on the face because off its smooth texture.
It also blends out very good as you can see on the picture above.

And most important of all, the powder stayed right in place an entire day!
So its durability is also very good (as we expect while using Guerlain products).



Guerlain Terracotta Pause d'été bronzing powder duo - € 65,50






I am absolutely loving this Limited Edition powder by Guerlain.

Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupté Shine

ysl rouge volupté shine review


Yves Saint Laurent lipstick Rouge Volupté Shine is my go-to lipstick when springtime is not as hot as it has to be.
Are you curious?
 I will tell you everything about it.


ysl rouge volupté shine review


As you may have noticed, the packaging of this product has changed.
The packaging now mentions 'oil-in-stick'.
This extra mention is to make buyers aware that this product is not only a lipstick,
but also a nourishing lipoil for your lips.



ysl rouge volupté shine review



Yes, that's the reason why I like to use this lipstick when the weather is not as good during springtime.
I like to wear some more vivid colours, but I want to keep my lips nourished.
The colour I bought is the shade 51 Rose Saharienne



ysl rouge volupté shine review


When I use this lipstick, I can wear my favourite shades without having extremely dry lips because of the weather changes.


Another thing that I really like about this lipstick, is that you can build up the colour intensity the way you like it.


ysl rouge volupté shine review


In the upper swatch you can see one strike of the lipstick, the bottom swatch are 3 strikes.
As I told before, the intensity of the colour can be built up the way you like it.

So this lipstick will be perfect for many different kinds of makeup-lovers :D




Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine - € 31,50

Biotherm - Skin Best Wonder Mud review

wonder mud mask is a mask by Biotherm that provides the skin from extra radiance


Skin Best Wonder Mud by Biotherm.
One of my favourite masks that I recently discovered.
Off course I want to share my thought on this mask with you,
so here is a review on the Wonder Mud by Biotherm.


Biother wonder mud is a mask that provides the skin with extra radiance

Skin Best Wonder mud is the first mask that contains algae and minerals.
This mask fights pollution, aggressions from the outside, clogged pores and dull skin.
When you start using this mask, you will have an immediate result.
And that is exactly what I like about this mask.

Sometimes while using a mask I don't see any results but I keep hoping for the result to come.
Sadly, sometimes masks don't work as they promised they would.

So with this mask no lying about the effects as you have an immediate result!

As you can see, the Wonder Mud looks like a clay mask, but when you feel the texture you will change your mind!
But you're also right by thinking that this is just a regular clay mask, in this mask we find as ingredient some Ghassoul, which is a white clay from Morocco which has a purrifying quality.

The texture is very light and soft creamy.
It is very easy to apply.


In this picture you see how it looks when you apply Biotherm wonder mud on your skin.

In the upper picture you can see what it looks like when applyingthe mask on your skin.
The small grains you see are extracts from apricot kernels, it adds an extra exfoliating quality to this Wonder Mud mask.

In the bottom picture you see how the mask looks when you let it rest for 3 minutes.



After 3 minutes it is time to take the mask off.

The fun thing about this mask is that you can take it off in two ways:
- rub it off (greasy to normal skin)
- wash it off (dry to sensitive skin)

I prefer to wash this mask off, because it is softer and less aggressive for the skin.


Tip: when you rub the mask off, put a towel under the 'rubbing area' to catch all the dirt.



When you are perfectly clean again (not that we were dirty XD), you can see the mask provides your skin from extra radiance.
My skin feels very soft, clean and it gave me some 'éclat'.
I love it!


What do you think about this mask?
Will you give it a try?

BE creative makeup - Kiss&Go lip colour stick





Chubby sticks, one of my favourite lipstick products.
Easy to use, practical to take with you when you go somewhere, and availale in a lot of brands.
Today I will show you the Kiss&Go lip colour stick by BE creative makeup.






As you know by reading my previous posts, BE creative makeup is a brand that keeps an eye on the quality of their products, and that is why I love them so much.


The Kiss&Go lip colour sticks are available in 5 different shades.
I bought '002 - Rosebud'.


The BE creative makeup Kiss&Go lip colour sticks are a lipstick and lipliner al-in-one.
The sticks have a creamy texture, are very light on the lips and you don't need a sharpener (Like!)




What I also like about these lip colour sticks, is that you can build up to color as intense as you'd like.
The upper swatch is just one strike of the stick.
The bottom swatch are two strikes applied on eachother.



BE creative makeup Kiss&Go Lip colour stick - €12,95

Essence - 2 in 1 eyeshadow and liner






Yes, Essence yes!
Finally they have added eyeshadow sticks to their collection, my all time favourite product!


I have always been a 'Chubby Stick by Clinique - fan' but now my favourite budget brand also brings eyeshadow sticks on the market.




 2 in 1 eyeshadow and liner that is waterproof.
Too good to be true?
Well no, these sticks can be used for both purposes and I love it!

Why I love this product so much?
In the morning I don't feel like using all my eyeshadow palettes because I don't have the time for that?
I take my eyeshadow stick, swipe it on my eyelid and I'm ready to go :D




On the picture above you can see how the stick itself is shaped. 

When you want to use this stick as an eyeshadow, just colour your eyelids like a 5-year old colors its paper (between the lines please :D)
When you want to use this stick as a liner, just gently move it above your upper lashline and voila! 


The packaging says these sticks are waterproof, and I tried it out (off course), and guess what? 
They are!
To me, this is a huge bonus because I don't like it when my eyeshadow 'smudges' and a waterproof version will stay beautiful the entire day (or night).



Essence has released 6 different colors and I like each single one of them.
Some are more suitable for a daylook, the other ones for a dramatic evening look.

The black one (number 04) I like to use as a base for a smokey eye.
Oh I'm so happy with this collection!



Essence 2in1 eyeshadow&liner (waterproof) - € 2,89



What do you think about eyeshadow sticks?
Do you like them as much as I do?

Kenzoki - Belle De Jour - Masque Nuit de Rêve/ Dream Night Mask


Today I will be showing you a other perspective on beauty: skincare.
You all read how shocked I was after my skin analysis last week (read it here ) 

So I decided to look for some products that are good for my skin and easy to use.

I found this beauty: Kenzoki's Belle de Jour dream night mask.




Belle De Jour Dream Night mask is an innovative mask that protects and refreshes the skin overnight.

'Dream Night Mask', as the name reveals we have to use this mask in the evening and leave it on during the night.




Belle de Nuit Extract hydrates, soothes, and combats redness and irritation. 
This night-blooming plant is renowned for its moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties.
It helps the balance skin by combatting irritiation caused by UV rays, pollution, and other daily aggravators. 

Kenzoki’s patented White Lotus Alchemy protects, illuminates, and helps fend off all signs of skin aging including wrinkles, loss of firmness, and dullness. 
Its free radical-fighting action supports natural collagen fibers, which help reinforce skin and cellular renewal. 




As you can see in the picture above, this mask looks like a cloud (my opinion :D).
It is very soft and easy to apply.

But how do we use this mask?

Overnight mask:
Apply a thin layer of the product, leave on the entire night and clean your face as usual in the morning.
You can do this 2 or 3 nights a week.

Daytime mask:
You can also use this mask as any regular mask.
Apply a thick layer of the product, leave on for 15 minutes and take of with a cotton pad and lotion.





I've been trying this mask two weeks now and here are my thoughts:

- I love the smell of the lotus flowers in this products, it is so addicting
- My skin feels fresh and hydrated

I will definitly keep using this mask because it really works for me.
