When it comes to beauty products, I can get so excited just by looking at them! Most of the packages and casings have a luxurious appearance that I feel like a kid in a candy store. So much to choose from!
As you can see Loves, I prefer pink-red shades of lipsticks or glosses, because I believe that they match my skin tone. I don’t know if it’s just me, but it gives me a radiant look. They also come close to my natural lip colour especially the lip glosses. Perfect for a daily look!
I added new MAC Lipsticks into my MAC collection. It’s getting bigger and colourful! I even added a brown/wine red shaded one, a colour I normally won’t choose. I’m wearing on this picture MAC Liptensity lipstick in shade Eros. The pigment is so pigmented that I only used a bit, I put my lips together and it was all over my lips. I applied it then on the corners of my lips for a whole look.
Matt lipsticks does not have my preference, I prefer glossy ones. The ones that you can put easily on and remove quickly. I found that perfect one with Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in shade #340 Envious. It goes so smoothly over my lips and it has the perfect red shade! I get a girly vibe when I apply Chanel Rouge Coco in shade #448 Elise. I have written a blogpost about it and I’m still in love with it. I mean, just looking at the Chanel logo makes me excited. Writing about being excited, I also had that feeling when I bought my first Yves Saint Laurent lipstick. I have chosen a sweet pink shade number 43. This sweet pink comes so close to my own lip colour that I don’t need to apply much.
Lip glosses are my ‘’on the road hero’s’’. Perfect for those days when you are in a rush and don’t have time to apply your makeup. Having one in my bag comes so handy! I apply it on my lips to distract it from my tired eyes. Or on my cheekbones for that quick glowy look.
Christian Dior is also a brand I fell in love it. They have such beautiful makeup that I couldn’t chose which beauty product I want. So, when I decided to buy a lipstick, I chose Rouge Dior Baume #568 in shade Rose Rose. It even smells like roses!

I reached a new milestone: three years of blogging! Writing this sentence makes me feel so excited and most of all blessed. As a blogger, I felt many emotions during my blogging path. I struggled with writer’s block, months I couldn’t write! My fingers wanted to type but my mind was holding me back from what I love to do. Those months I felt insecure about my blog and asked myself many times: should I pull the plug? I struggled with lack of inspiration and motivation, how many outfits I should post? How many beauty looks? Does my readers like what I’m doing? So many questions holding me back from getting inspired to be motivated to write for my blog again.
However, when I do hit publish I get such a satisfying feeling. A feeling of perfectionism that is accomplished because there comes more to look than just hitting the publish button. English is not my native language. So, I must translate some words that I don’t know how to spell or I know the word in Dutch and Moroccan Arabic but not in English. I run through the spellcheck three times or even more! And on top of that I read my blogpost out loud to hear whether the sentence structure is good. So far, I did my very best and sometimes even when I hit publish I make small changes. When I do this, I sometimes blame myself by saying how couldn’t I have notice this spelling mistake? This cloud of perfectionism hangs on top of my head. Thank god after rain comes sunshine!
Speaking about perfection: making the perfect picture. I love taking pictures for my blog. I come in such ease when I combine colours and range the products. Using the right décor to add some flair into the pictures makes to me the perfect picture.
I am glad to say, with a smile on my face that I wouldn’t change anything about my blogging love. I appreciate my struggles. It makes me who I am: a girl that loves to blog.

Is it just me or does lipsticks give you a good feeling whenever you use it on your lips or see it collecting dust on your vanity? Which woman doesn’t have at least one or thousand lipsticks from all the colours in the world? Or who doesn’t buy every single time the colour that suits perfectly on you and want to try another shade but you end up with the first one? Believe me when I say you are not alone. I salute you!
I have this with the colour fuchsia and only with the dark pink ‘’red-ish’’ shade. Whenever I use this lipstick colour on my lips I feel instantly more feminine, like fierce.
So I wandered in the make-up isle of my local drugstore and took these candies into the shopping basket. I love the cute and chic look from Essence lipsticks! You would think that a budget brand will not do his work like a high end product but oh boy you would think twice if you try Essence. I have nothing but good experiences with the brand.
Same goes with the make-up from H&M and I’m even not writing about my thoughts on the packaging. Love it!
Talking about lipstick colours, I have mixed feelings about the colour nude. It is always attractive for me to buy one. It reminds me of Kylie Jenner because it looks so good on her! Secretly I want it to look good on me too but always end up with a fuchsia one.
Which fav colour do you have Loves?
I am obsessed with lipstick….Since a month! I am a daily lipgloss user but now I can combine it with lipstick. The reason why I prefer lipgloss is that it is easy to apply, no lipgloss marks on your teeth! Because of the gloss it stays longer on your lips and you can apply it very quick without looking in a mirror! Using a lipstick gives you a lot more of work don’t you think? To me I have to look if I don’t apply it like a clown, imagine you giving a big smile to the cute guy you just past by, seeing yourself in a window with lipstick marks on you teeth! Well….I just describe a movie scene but you know what I mean…
I did not want to spend a lot of money on a expensive lipstick like MAC especially I know from myself that I am not going to use it a lot like lipgloss. I saw many Dutch beautybloggers reviewing Essence lipstick and they were were positive about it so I tought why not buy one to see for myself? And I did! They are right it’s a amazing budgetkiller! I love the pigment, it stays long on your lips and the Essence logo on the lipstick is a cute touch!
I am thinking to put my lipglosses on the hold and start using more lipstick…!
P.s. Do you also have the elegant feeling when you put lipstick on? When you make that kissing sound after you apply it…? Well at least I do!
