Essence sheer lipbalm review

I think lipsticks are a very delicate thing. I love them, but I have a hard time finding the perfect nude/neutral shade. This tinted lipbalm caught my eye. I initially thought it was a lipstick, but that's okay.
The packaging of this product is quite adorable, the packaging of the colour is thesame colour as the lipbalm itself. You can see "Happy girls are pretty", which is the name of this limited edition collection in beautiful font on the packaging.

The name of ths lipbalm is "Pretty you"! How cute?! 

And here's a swatch! I think it's well pigmented for a "sheer" lipbalm. 
Such a soft texture that feels smooth on the lips. I like it.

I would like to apologize for the quality of the before and after pictures. I have a great app on my phone to put pictures side by side and so that's why I used my phone for the pictures. I'm also looking for a new camera, so if any of you have suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
It does give a good idea of what this lipbalm looks like on my lips though.

What do you think? Thanks for reading!

Shoplog Essence

When I feel a little down, there are a couple of things that can cheer me up. Sleep, food, friends and of course things that I'm passionate about; such as make-up. 
I got a couple of things from my favourite budget brand. 

The first items that I got are by Essence. They're from the "Happy girls are pretty" collection. Cute! 
First, I got a nailpolish and I also got a tinted lipbalm in a neutral colour. "My lips but better", that's what this looks like.
Of course I will have reviews up as soon as I can!


I also got a new mascara! I like testing a new mascara every once in a while and this "pump, no clump!" mascara looked pretty good to me.


I also got this beautiful coral blush! I love it! 
Keep visiting the blog for more updates and reviews!

A new do! - AGAIN!

Ever since I had my hair cut after to get rid of the ombre part of my hair, I've been cutting it shorter. First about 10 cm disappeared and now... I've cut it again! 

I always tell everyone that I like to reinvent myself but I didn't want to change the colour and so when I went for a trim, I decided to cut off some more.
I now have a short bob!  

Even though I really have to get used to it, it's a nice 'do because it's refreshing, and I also like to play with the layers. I love it straight, but I bet big waves or curls will look gorgeous as well! Yay, short hair! 

Have a good day! Thanks for reading!

OOTD: Army green ♥

Hello you guys! It seems like the last warm days of the year have arrived and I'm not going to take them for granted!
In Belgium, the weather can change within five minutes, which isn't fun a lot of time because you're never really prepared for a very hot day or a very windy, rainy day, but November has been surprisingly warm.

I decided to wear my pastel pink blazer one last time before I would start wearing a big, warm wintercoat.
I paired this blazer with pastel pink sneakers and a tan purse. My scarf has pink in it, but army green and grey as well, which is perfect, because my blouse is the exact same shade of green. I love this outfit so much! It's the only outfit that makes me feel this good! 

Blouse: H&M
Blazer: H&M
Bracelets: H&M 
Pants: H&M
Scarf: Primark
Purse: Primark

What do you think of this outfit? 
Thanks for reading! Have a good day!

Manicure Monday: Dark purple

The days are getting darker and so is my nailpolish! 
I tend to adjust my nailpolish and outfits, even my make-up, to the weather. It just inspires me a lot. Sometimes I will go for orange eyeshadow because the leaves that fall down from the trees look orange and that inspires me. Today I chose to mix up my nailpolish. I usually never wear a dark nailpolish like this, but sometimes, change is good.

This is a nailpolish by New Look, it's matte.
The colour looks like a dark purple in the bottle, but on my finger nails it looks more grey than purple. That disappointed me a teeny tiny bit, but the quality of this product made me happy again. I have two other nailpolishes from New Look that haven't disappointed me when it comes to coverage and texture, and this one is amazing as well.
I applied three layers, because that's how I like it and that's what I'm used to, but this nailpolish perfectly covers with two layers.
It also dries quickly and stays on for quite a while. I can keep this colour for about a week without chipping.

What do you think? Have you tried New Look's nailpolishes yet?
