Beauty Haul

Hello everyone,

It's been quite a while since my last post and I'm really sorry for that. I wrote this one a few weeks ago, but I just couldn't really finish it,
But now I just want to sit down and write about some of my new beauty products I bought during the "after-christmas-time". I tested them now for a few weeks and I'll let you know my own opinion. So here we go :)

The first product I want to mention is the tinted moisturizer from NARS. It feels so soft on your skin and it's perfect for a daily make up look, because it doesn't cover too much, but still covers most of your rednesses. I really wanted to test this product for so so long, because a lot of youtuber recommend it and I never had a product from nars before. I can say that it's perfect for you if you aren't looking for something withnreally high coverage, but a nice and even skin look for an every day look. I love to apply it with my new real technique brush, because it's very soft and makes it super easy to blend the products nicely.

These five bad boys were on sale and I just had to buy them haha. I didn't wear lipsticks a lot, but I really like this set of lip pencils from NARS, because you can blend them nicely to create a very natural look and now since I have them I started to wear lipstick more often. Yaay.
I really like all of the colours, but I think my favourite is the dark red one, because it's just perfect for the cold days.

Before I had the studio sculpt concealer of mac and I think it lasted for around half a year (that's really good I think), but for Christmas I got a new one. It's the studio finish concealer of mac and I don't really see a big difference. I like both a lot and if you have trouble with dark circles (like me!!) give it a go. It's just perfect :)

My next product is a very special one for me. It's my first Chanel Charme lipstick in the shade rouge coco 40. I love how it moisturizes your lips and also gives them a very nice creamy colour. I really think it's the best and most beautiful lipstick I ever tested or had.

I think for a lot of people it's just normal to buy these things, but for me it's something special and I'm always so happy about new beauty products and I just love to test them and write about it, that's why I wrote this blog post and I think a lot of girls can totally understand this hahaa

 Hope you have a great time, see you soon xx

Rouge Edition Velvet Bourjois Lipgloss Review

Hello everyone! 
So it's been a while hasn't it? Apologies for that! I needed a bit time off because there were quite a lot of things I needed to figure out (and part I blame the series Broadchurch; it's so good, I just can't idgfk!!)

Today I'm writing about the Rouge Edition Velvet lipgloss from Bourjois. I heard so many people raving about these that when I spotted one I needed to try it immediately. And as so many people loved  and praised it I had quite high expectations. But to be honest I was a bit disappointed when I first tried it. What fist caught my attention was this weird smell of paint for walls and I can't say I'm fond of it or I'm getting attached to it.
The lipgloss/lipstick has a creamy texture and is super pigmented. I think I have rarely seen a more pigmented lipgloss. The formula stays on super long and even defys every food and liquids surprisingly well. I must say better than any lipstick I ever used.
What I'm struggling with is the texture of this product. At fist it's super creamy and after application it kind of "dries" and it feels like another thin skin laid over your lips. It turns matt and when you would touch your lips the color doesnt't come off . Which is a good thing in deed as it helps it staying longer put but it's just such a weird feeling. And to add especially during winter my hole body dries out so easily and this lipgloss didn't found to be moisturizing at all. And after a while it annoys me so much that most times I whip it away.
Maybe I'm being a bit selective and and a real nitpicker haha (is this word used?) but that's my thoughts on it. What are yours? :) I'd love to know! Maybe I'm just doing something wrong haha.

Hoped you enjoyed it and until soon

Rebecca :)
