Once a week I would like to write about all the highlights and WTF moments that happens last week. It
could be about anything seeing I see a lot of strange things in my life and I got a lot to share.
This week make-up buyers: The misinformed and the strange
While this week my highlight was skipping towards the store because all make-up was 50% off. I knew what I wanted and I knew where to get it. I grabbed a basket and rushed towards the Catrice and Essence selves. I was so happy that there where still many products left and I debated what to buy when two girls walked towards the shelves. I was still debating and caught there conversation, well one was talking and the other was opening nail polishes and swatching them. Now I don’t mind people trying one color they might want to buy but she was went from left to right till all her nails had a different color while she mentioned “I actually don’t want to buy nail polish. I have loads already” but she just needed a ‘free’ manicure. Totally normal right? I wonder if she also samples the fries at burger king when she is not hungry…
I raised an eyebrow at her while rolling my eyes but she didn’t notice because her friend was holding a pencil eyeliner and was asking her advice if she should buy it. The ‘swatcher’ then grabbed the pencil and had a closer inspection and started to share her knowledge that would put an beauty blogger to shame. She also had a source for her knowledge because her little sister once owned the same pencil. Now I am by no means a beauty blogger or expert so I felt no need to correct her. She lectured her friend that it was a pencil only for the bottom of the lower lash line and that she needed a different one if she wanted to use it on her upper eyelid but ‘strangely’ enough they didn’t had such pencil in the store. But she would ask her younger sister where she had bought her ‘special’ pencil.
Now the other girl also needed a new foundation. Her friend actually picked the same one as I had in my little basket claiming that it was amazing! she went on and on how much foundation you need to put on “Because your face isn’t that great you need a very thick layer..” and of coarse gave the brilliant advice “You need to pick at least two shades darker then your skin tone”
With a big smile I left to pay for my products and skipped home.
Just stick around for five minutes next to the make-up in a store and you will hear the strangest things.
What is the strangest thing you over heard?
For the non Dutch people the box says “All the luck in the world” when buying for 25 euro in a local drugstore you get a free bracelet. It actually looks a bit like the Thomas Sabo bracelet I have been lusting after.
So there where three designs I could pick from and as I said in the title I picked the black glass one mainly because the silver one wasn’t my taste and I already had a pearl one.
The silver bead is to hang charms on and lucky me, I had a charm lying around.
I am still debating what other bracelets I should pair it with.
I normally don’t like to buy nude or old pink nail polish but I won this polish. I was actually not really impressed till I swatch-ed it on my nails. Hello new favorite colour!
I used two layers but it also had a very nice coverage with only one.
Very classy colour, I love it!
I must say I love my [semi-tacky] bling. My Grannie has some expensive rings but doesn’t wear them often. What she doesn’t wear she often gives to me. The right one is a tiny band with clear stones that she gave me a few months ago and the center one is my Jacques LeMan that I wear nonstop. Now new to the family is my blue stoned ring. I call it my new wedding ring [even when I don’t have a guy in my life 8D]
Also can you guess what I used as background for these pictures?
I adore the blue big stone and look at that lush real fur that I used as background. I need to brush my fur more
Yes she liked being my model. She is a huge camera whore.
What is your favorite ring?
Let me start with the fact that I do not use blush, ever! But I decided why not? So I just snatched up this blush sorbet. I used a few times already and there are some high and low points.
Does it look pretty? The blush does but the jar doesn’t, The cheap plastic jar does not irk me so much but the fact that the top looks so dirty cheap annoys me. Fruity is in a front that I don’t love and the white top looks overdone. Not what I normally expect from a LE. But why did I buy it?
Doesn’t that just look amazing? I love the color and the semi glitter that it seems to have.
So let me sum up the high and low points!
- It has a very cheap looking packige
- It is a limited edition
- It rieks! It really stinks I think. I smells kind of like those cheap bubblegum you had as a kid
- Amazing color
- Easy in use
- Easy to build op color
Still even when it has a few low points I still like this.
Today I am going to share my favorite hair mask with you. This jar full of yellow wonder really works wonders for my hair. I am known for bleaching my hair and so I need to really take care of my hair so it doesn’t break. This is one of the few hair masks that leave my hair soft, easy to manage and sweet smelling.
Altought I have admit that Elvive from L’oreal isn’t that cheap. But with 300ML you can get your moneys worth. I payed round 8 euro for this jar.
Do tell me what is your favorite hair-care product?
Like my style? And what is your favorite?
