Happy Holidays with Kiehl's

This year was a special Christmas for me, one with a lot of food, laughter and time with my family.
I got so lucky to receive a Christmas gift set by Kiehl's.
And off course I want to share those Kiehl's items with you in my blogpost.
HoHoHo to all of you.
Relax and read on.

First of all, look at that packaging.
It looks so gorgeous and seduces me to be unwrapped immediately.

The first thing I got is a pouch with the Kiehl's Creme de Corps in it, this is French for bodylotion.
This bodylotion is one of the cult products by Kiehl's.

This is a nourishing bodylotion with beta carotene and nourishing oils.
This bodylotion is perfect for the dry and extra dry skin and can be used all over the body.
It will make your skin soft, smooth and perfectly hydrated.

I have super dry legs myself, so I tried this product immediately.
It really hydrated my legs instantly and has a nice soft fragrance in it, I recommend it to everyone with dry skin!

Another product I got is the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate.
This is a serum filled with essential oils and vegetable elements in it.
This dynamising elixir is a real bestseller in the Kiehl's stores.
It will make your skin look fabulous every morning when you apply it after cleansing your skin.

How to use:

Massage 2-3 drops onto your freshly-cleansed skin, avoid the immediate eye area (as the skin around your eyes is a lot thinner and needs adjusted products).
After this Midnight Recovery Concentrate you can use your usual daycream.

Crème de Corps 250 ml - €30,50
Midnight Recovery Concentrate 50 ml - €64,00

Have you ever tried any Kiehl's products before?
What is you favorite Kiehl's product?

But they made a gorgeous collection:
Meet the Urban Decay Heavy Metals metallic eyeshadow palette and glitter eyeliner.

Urban Decay released another limited edition eyeshadow palette: Heavy Metals.
As the name tells us, this palette contains metallic eyeshadow shades.
What I like about this palette, is that all the shades that are included in this palette weren't made before.
The shades are brand new, limited edition, great quality and gorgeous!

This eyeshadow palette has all the shades you need to create a beautiful metallic look with.
As you might have noticed, Urban Decay arranged the colors for us.
On the left you find bright and vivid colors, on the right the more neutral shades.
Every color that is included in the Heavy Metals palette has a soft feeling and is easy to apply.
And believe it or not, these color blend like a dream!

Urban Decay also sent me a small box you see laying on the Heavy Metals palette on this picture.
That is a heavy metal glitter eyeliner.
A girl can never wear too much glitter, right?

You can wear the UrBan Decay Heavy Metal glitter eyeliner by itself, or apply it over an eyeshadow you like.
The glitter eyeliner will really stay in place all day, I love it!

Shu Uemura X Super Mario Bros

When I was a little kid, I was addicted to my Nintendo and the Super Mario games.

Givenchy - Striking Night Lights Holiday Collection (XMAS 2017)

I am glad this makeup package came into my mail a while ago, 
I love makeup and I love limited edition collections.
So this new Striking Night Lights holiday collection by Givenchy was an amazing gift sent to me by Givenchy.
Let's discover some of the products that come in this collection.

Givenchy Eclats Nocturnes

First, let's take a look at this packaging.
The packaging is so sparkling and lovely.
Instead of the classic black leather packaging, this collection is covered with a dark glitter fabric.
I really like looking at these products.

Givenchy Eclats Nocturnes

Prisme Libre Eclats de Rose

I already have a 'normal version' of the prisme libre powder, and I love that powder a lot.
So I was pretty excited to discover the prisme libre in a light pink edition.

This Prisme Libre Eclats de Rose comes with 4 complementary and complexion enhancing shades.
As the regular prisme libre powders, the texture is really fine and a pleasure to use.
Although that it looks like this prisme lbre is a blush, it is a regular prisme libre translucent powder, with a soft touch of pink in it.
The powder can be used individually, or mixed together to boost your glow.
What I also like about this powder, is that it is a bit shiny,
so you can use this powder as a rosy highlight.
But don't be mistaken, is is not a sparkly highlighter but more of a subtle one.

Givenchy Eclats Nocturnes

Givenchy Le Rouge 328

I fell in love with the Givenchy lipsticks by discovering them in another PR-package.
I already tried out the two-toned lipsticks and the rouge sculpt and now I got curious about this Le Rouge in the shade 328.
This lipstick comes in a beautiful burgundy red shade, a perfect color to have for your New Year's Eve party or Christmas diner.

Givenchy Eclats Nocturnes

Givenchy Le Rouge-A-Porter 360 'Burn Nocturne'

This lipstick is a little different than the previous one I showed in this blogpost.
Le Rouge-A-Porter is a sheer lipstick and this one is one in a chestnut red color.
It looks pretty dark when you see it in the tube, but it is gorgeous on the lips.
Although the texture is a sheer one, the color applies very evenly and smoothly to the lips.
What I also like about this lipstick, is its hydrating feature (something I really need during winter time).

My opinion about this collection?

This collection really looks stunning and amazing.
Givenchy Limited Edition makeup might seem pricey, but to me it is worth every euro because of the 'to-die-for packaging'.
If you want to buy something from this collection I only have one tip for you:
This is a limited edition collection so these items sell out fast.

Outfit Of The Day With My Dog

It has been a while since I wrote a blogpost were you can actually see me, so I thought it was about time to change that.

I am showing you in this blogpost my new outfit that I got myself to face the cold days during autumn and winter, and off course I am doing this with my lovely dog by my side.

We went walking behind my house the other day, and I thought that an outfit shoot in this setting would be very nice.
So I got my personal photographer (nothing fancy, it is just my mum) and we got out there.

First of all, it is not easy to shoot nice pictures with an animal, and absolutely not with my dog.
She likes taking a walk so much, that she just won't stand still or pose for a picture.
So off course, first we went for an actual walk so my dog was satisfied as well.

When my dog wasn't acting super excited anymore, the shooting could start.
I just got myself a new sweater by the brand Blake Seven, they really have the nices sweaters with the nicest quotes and prints on them.

I combined this sweater with new pants I ordered on Maison Lab, these are from the brand Super Trash.
I really recommend pants by this brand to all of you, I never had such a comfy pair of jeans before, and no I am not sponsored to say this.

My shoes weren't new, these are my Puma shoes that I already have a few months now. 
hallelujah for me for keeping them so clean during these months.

I know this outfit might seem a little grey, but hey it is autumn and soon it will be winter.
I don't feel like wearing the same colorful outfits as in the summer/spring.

And for my dog, she is wearing her lovely coat.

In case you also have a dog and you're having a hard time to keep the coat of your dog soft and shiny, try changing the food of your dog!

For my lovely black beauty that worked amazing.
Her hairs were looking dull and weren't feeling so soft anymore, but then I changed her food to natural food by , her coat really improved.

It might work for your dog as well to give natural food.

What do you think about my outfit and my dog?
Have you ever tried taking pictures with an animal, do you have tips for me to shoot even better pictures with my dog?

Syoss- Salonplex Pre Color Primer

Have you ever heard of the Plex Technology?
In our hair, special hair bridges are responsible for the well-being of our hair and its inner strength.
A lot of chemical treatments may cause damage to these hair bridges, this will damage your hair and it may break as well.
Luckily for us, Syoss created a new product to protect our hair from damaging.
Meet the new Syoss Salonplex Pre Color Primer.

Earlier this year, Syoss launched the range SalonPlex with a shampoo and a conditioner in it.
Syoss also renewed their coloring range and added the SalonPlex Technology into all their hair coloring products.
With this technology, a million hair bridges will be created and existing hair bridges will be restored.
What does this mean for your hair?
Your hair will be stronger and protected from breaking.

Today, Syoss is launching a new product in their SalonPlex range: a pre-color primer.
This is a primer that you need to use before every coloration or bleaching of your hair.

This product comes in a spray, so it is very easy to spray it over your hairdo before you work the coloring magic.
This spray prepares your hair for the bleaching that is about to follow by creating a protective layer around your hair.

How to use this Syoss Pre-Color Primer?

Apply the spray on dry hair and blowdry.
Start the bleaching or dying of your hairdo without worrying about the damage that might be caused.

Good to know: This pre-color primer will not have any effect on the result of your coloration.

I have tried this pre color primer myself.
I bleach my hair every 3 weeks, so I have pretty damaged hair myself.
I am not going to say that my hair is completely restored after one use only,
but it feels softer and my ends are not so dry anymore.
I will keep trying this product as I feel that this might work its magic for me.

Syoos Pre Color Primer is now available in your local drugstore for € 6,99.

Will you try this spray out yourself?
