Things I've Been Watching #7

Good morning to everyone, today on this last Sunday of May it's time for another 'Things I've Been Watching'-post. The seventh one already. This time I watched a lot of Disney movies and only one season of a series.

Dolce&Gabbana Dolce Floral Drops

The last time I bought a new perfume was last summer when I bought Armani Si! which has been a huge favourite of mine for the last couple of months. I love the scent and there's only 1/3 left in the bottle. Therefore I could justify buying a new scent for spring. I wanted something fresh but floral. I knew what I wanted to smell like but I had no idea what perfume smelled like that. That's why I asked the sales lady for help. She recommended Dolce by Dolce&Gabbana but it was a bit too heavy. Next to it I saw the floral drops version, I smelled it and I was sold.

DIY Kylie Jenner Heir Metal Matte Lipstick

In today's post I have a little DIY for you guys, I'm going to show you how to easily get a subtle rose gold metallic lip. Lately I've been seeing a comeback of the metallic lip. A few years ago it was absolutely not done and matte lips were all the rage. Now it's slowly becoming acceptable again. I'm still not sure what I think about this return but I did love the look of the Kylie Jenner Metallic Lip Kit in the shade Heir. It was one of their Coachelle releases and I love the look of it. A subtle rose gold that looks gorgeous on everyone I've seen it on. I wanted to try it but I didn't want to spend a sh*t load of money and taxes on the lip kit. Therefore I started playing with some products I already own and came up with my own, homemade version.

Styletone May Beauty Box

I've been wanting to order a beautybox for a while now but I never knew what box to order. Last month I saw someone write about the StyleTone box and I wanted to try it out. In this box you get 5 full-size products for €12,50 and in this post I'll show you what I got in my May box.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

Lately I've been obsessed with liquid lipsticks but there aren't any available in the Dutch stores. Ordering online is the only option most of the time. And even ordering online can be a pain in the ass. These Kat Von D everlasting Liquid Lipsticks I eventually ordered through a Spanish webshop. This way I didn't have to pay a lot of taxes because the products are coming from inside Europe.

Things I've Been Watching #6

I did it again, I deleted my things I've been watching post. The good new is, now I know how it happens. I start writing a new post and it overwrites my scheduled one because I mess up the number. So stupid. This time I'm going to rewrite most of it but my little opinion snippets will be shorter then normally.

Milani Luminoso Baked Blush

There are a few blushes that have been majorly hyped up over the past couple of years. I'm talking about blushes like Nars Orgasm or the one I'm writing about today, the infamous Milani Luminoso. I've discovered this blush through NikkieTutorials and Jaclyn Hill but I never bought it because Milani isn't sold here in the Netherlands. Luckily American beauty products have been popping up on websites that ship to the Netherlands and when I was ordering my Z-palette, I saw that the webshop were I bought it, sold Milani as well. That's when I ordered this hyped up blush to see whether it was just as good as everybody says.

Something new: Shop my favourites







Just a quick update today, I've been working on my blog design lately and one of the things I've added is a 'shop my favourites'-section. I made two categories, fashion and beauty. On those pages you can find items that I items I love along with links to buy them.

I thought this would be a fun addition to my blog since I love browsing to similar section on other blogs. It's also a way too incorporate some fashion into my blog since I don't do outfit posts. I hope you like it and give it a browse. Obviously I'll add more over time but right now you can find both recent purchases and old favourites. You can navigate there through the menu at the top of my blog.

Love,
E

Douglas Mattism Matte Lipstick

A while ago I was at a Dutch store called Douglas to buy a gift for Mothers day. Obviously I couldn't not check out the makeup section and I stumbled about Douglas' own brand. I never payed much attention to their brand but for some reason I walked towards it and looked at the products. The first thing I noticed was the price point, which was quite high for a brand I would consider drugstore. The second thing I saw was this lipstick.
