Where Have I Been? + Giveaway Winner!

FINALLY. Hey everyone! How are you all doing? I know I have been away for a while and I have a very simple explanation for that: my laptop is being repaired. My screen cracked and it needed to be replaced. I didn't have a back-up laptop, so I couldn't do anything. You guys should try living without a computer for a while, it's very boring. But you have time for lots of other things! :P Now, as it turns out, reparing a computer is not that easy... The wrong screen has been sent twice already. I can now work on a friend's laptop until mine is fully repaired but I don't know how long that will take. But hey, I can blog again! I made a list of everything I want to blog about and the list is getting longer and longer! Be prepared :D


NOW, first and very important post: The winner of my giveaway! I want to thank you all for entering, I'm really excited about it. I typed all the names of the girls who entered on a website that randomly choose a person for me. 

And the winner is... *drum ruffle*... Katja from Confessions Of A Makeup Shopaholic! 
Check you g-mail because I sent you an e-mail! 


I'm so glad to be back and I can't wait to blog full-time again!
I'll see you guys very soon ;)

March Favorites 2015

Hello everyone! How are you all doing? March is over and I'm a bit sad because it's one of my favorite months. But it's time to share my favorites with you girls and I'm happy about that! I don't have a lot of them, because this month, I was really into the 'No Make-up make-up' look so I kept it all very toned down and natural. I also had quite a few days where I wore no make-up at all because my skin was acting a bit weird at times. Let's get started with my favorite products of this month!

The 'I Only Needed 1 Thing' Haul: Spring Edition

You know that moment when you're concealer is running dangerously low and you need to go to the drugstore to get a back-up of it? But then somehow, you end up with a bunch of other stuff... That happened to me today! I needed to repurchase the Maybelline Dream Lumi touch concealer. Just that one product. So you walk into the drugstore... and you see the new line of nail polishes by Rimmel, the new releases from Bourjois and lots of other things. And you just accept the fact that some days, you need to spoil yourself a little bit. Let's take a look at what I got today!


1) Labello Classic Care Lip Balm: Did I need this one? No, not really. I just like these so much and I haven't gotten one in years. They feel so nice on the lips and I really enjoy the smell of these.
2) Bourjois Nude Smokey Eyeshadow Trio in 'Sable Show': Oh my god. I'm not a big fan of Bourjois eyeshadows, but waw! These new trios are so beautiful! There was also another trio with rosy tinted colors but I prefer these golden/taupe shades. They had testers available in store and I was so impressed! These are soft as butter AND very pigmented! Big thumbs up for this trio!
3) Freeman Charcoal & Black Sugar Face Mask: I've tried Freeman face mask before and I really enjoy them.This charcoal and sugar mask really intregued me. I've heard a lot about the purifuing qualities of charcoal. This face mask has two actions: purifying the skin and exfoliation. Can't wait to try this one out later tonight.
4) Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer in '02 Nude': The only thing from this haul I actually needed. You guys know how much I love this one so I'm not going to bore you guys with talking to much about this one. I was lucky, it was the last one in the store!
5) Rimmel Rita Ora Nail Polish in '322 Neon Fest': How cute do these bottles look with the little flowers? This line of spring colors is absolutely beautiful. Most of them were sold out but I really like this bright pink one. Very nice for spring and summer!

Did you do some shopping lately?

Kiko Clics System: Review & Swatches!

Happy Sunday everyone! How is your weekend going? Today, I wanted to talk about the Kiko Clics System. Just like the Inglot Freedom System and with MAC palettes, you can now buy seperate palettes at Kiko and fill them up with the colors you want! This way, you can make your own perfect palette. When I visited Kiko in February, everything from the Clics system was -50%. So I decided to put together a palette for myself!

I decided to pick up a palette for 4 eyeshadows. You can pick up a palette for 1, 3, 4 of 24 colors. The palettes are quite cheap, the one for 4 colors is 2,50€. The most expensive one for 24 colors is 6€. They have a wide variety of eyeshadows, bright as well as neutral colors. The eyeshadows are 2,40€ each. It wasn't easy to choose from all the colors, but I managed to find 4 lovely colors.
