Review // Makeup Revolution London 'Golden Sugar' Ultra Blush Palette

RevolutionBlushPalette
Ever since I received the 'Golden Sugar' Ultra Blush Palette by Makeup Revolution London, I've been dying to show it to you. Don't let the palette's name fool you, because this gem contains more than blushes only (think: highlighters, blushes, bronzers). Plus, it's super affordable as well. I absolutely love to discover new products that do their job and on which you don't have to spend a fortune.

I almost didn't want to review it, because I found it too pretty to use, but here I am with a new beauty post! Curious to find out more about the palette and to see the swatches? Click below for more eye candy. 

The Makeup Revolution London 'Golden Sugar' Ultra Blush Palette is available at all Di-stores in Belgium and sells for € 7,95.

Review // Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits

KylieCosmetics3
People who know me, also know that I'm a huge Kardashian / Jenner fan and that Kylie is my favorite of the bunch (if you're here to give me hate about it: I do not want to hear about it, thank you) -- I even considered getting them lips done for a second, no joke. So when Kylie announced that she would be launching her own make up line, and a lipstick line as the very first, my heart literally stopped. I desperately tried to get my hands on them for weeks, only to find out that I was too late and they were all sold out.

That's when I started to follow several Instagram-accounts who kept an eye on restock times and posted the exact hour for each time zone. If you're interested: KylieLipKitUpdates and LipKitByKylieUpdates are my favorites. I was having a drink with my best friend and randomly checking my Instagram-feed, when I saw a post announcing that the Kylie Cosmetics restock would happen in half an hour. After 10 minutes of intense explaining on why I needed the Kylie Lip Kits in my life and begging my best friend to bring me home (not sorry, it was one of those now or never moments), I was sitting in front of my laptop and desperately clicking the refresh button for the next 15 minutes. The restock happened at the exact time they promised it would and I anxiously clicked Mary Jo K, Posie K and Kourt K home. They were my top 3 favorites from the beginning and I wanted to see the quality of them first, before ordering other shades as well. I quickly got a confirmation mail that they received my order and also got a tracking code, giving me very detailed information on the location of my package. They took about 2,5 weeks to get to me and I had to pay a 36 euros custom fee, which is a lot, but I didn't really care. 

After two weeks or so, I happened to check KylieCosmetics.com for no particular reason and I saw that they happened to have restocked again. Skylie and Freedom were already sold out (bummer!) and after telling my mom (and myself) that I just had to order again -- because what are the chances, right? -- I purchased Dolce K, Koko K and Reign. Plus, I also ordered another Posie K for a friend of mine. Again: confirmation email, waiting 2,5 weeks and my babies were home! This time, I had to pay 40 euro for customs, though. I guess it's something to consider if you have to order Kylie Lip Kits from Europe, or outside the U.S. in general, as well. 

I've read about people not getting their complete order or having troubles with the shipping, but I'm dead honest when I say that I have no complaints what so ever on this matter. Everything was handled correctly and I'm very pleased with their service.

Curious to find out what Reign, Posie K, Koko K, Dolce K, Mary Jo K and Kourt K look like on my lips? Click below to find out!

Beauty // Summer With Clinique

Clinique2
After weeks of grey and rainy weather, summer will finally hit Belgium this weekend! Since my skin is sensitive and well... super pale, I'd better take some precautions. I get sunburned very easily and  rarely get a tan, unless I sit in the sun for hours, which just isn't worth it for me. My dermatologist told me that my skin isn't damaged by the sun on several occasions and I'm planning to keep it that way.

Clinique sent me the perfect starter kit to be safe and hydrated this summer! 

The Mineral Sunscreen Fluid For Face SPF 50 (30 ml) sells for € 25,95.
The Mineral Sunscreen Lotion For Body SPF 30 (125 ml) sells for € 25,95.
The Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief (50 ml) sells for € 27,00.
