Going out with sensational lashes

You all know how I love watching youtube vids. One of my faves is – who else – Zoella. If I have to be completely honest, I love her vlogging channel ever more. I don’t know why I love watching other people live their life.. or maybe I do. Well, anyway. I always keep an eye on the products she uses because they can vary a lot. Recently she uploaded an ad on Instagram about the Maybelline Sensational Lash mascara. Well, I couldn’t help myself and get the mascara asap – I mean, look at this pic (!) -.. and I’m glad I did. It was super weird to put in on the first times, because the brush is so different. But at the end, I got the handle on it and we’ve become best friends since. I love the way you can basically choose how much of the mascara you want to apply. The inner side makes it look very thick, while the outer side really opens your lashes. You can find them at your local drugstore, …

Current beauty faves

Here are some of my favorite beauty products of the moment! 1. L’Oréal Super liner perfect slim. The only eyeliner which makes it possible to achieve a winged eyeliner.. well, most of the time. Anyway, this has become my new best friend. 2. Mac Satin Twig Lipstick. My favorite lipstick atm, the colour is perfect for this in-between season. 3. Maybelline Vivid Matt Liquid. With this one I have some kind of love-hate relationship, but once I get used to the liquid on my lips – such a strange feeling – I know I’ll love this one forever. 4. Essie Marshallow en Bordeaux nail polish. When I’m choosing a colour for my nails, I’ll always go for one of these. They stay perfect for days and go with every occasion. 5. Maybelline Nude Eyeshadow Palette. Eyeshadow in combination with my contact lenses is a no-go, but when wearing my glasses I will reach for this palette much quicker. The colours suit me and I don’t really need much more than these. 6. Yves Rocher Foundation Kwast. I used to apply my foundation with …

Facial care w/ garnier⎪www.labrunette.be

Facial care w/ Garnier

Some people have such an extended evening ritual  some cream here, some lotion there, some extra cream. I find it exhausting just thinking about it. I’ve never really been interested in all these facial hypes.  Recently I have tried a serum and eyecream, but that’s about it. I’ve always been going for the easiest way possible – without knowing if that was the best way.. well, probably not. Thankfully I caved for the micellar cleansing water trend, because this hasn’t only made my evening ritual much easier, but my skin looks so much better too. At the moment I’m using three products of the Garnier facial care line. In other words, those three products are the only things I use in the evening – and partially in the morning too.   Sommige mensen hebben een enorm uitgebreid avondritueel: crèmes hier, lotions daar, nog wat extra crème.. Ik wordt al vermoeid van er enkel aan te denken. Als het om gezichtsverzorging voor de avond gaat, heb ik nooit echt meegedaan met alle hypes. Laats heb ik voor het eerst een …

Clinique Gift Box⎪ www.labrunette.be

Clinique gift box

Last week I went to our local Planet Parfum. It’s a beauty store here in Belgium. I always go there when I need a new daycream. When the clerk asks what I need, I always need to think soso hard, because I only need to buy it twice a year. And my memory is like.. the worst! This time not only did I get home with my regular Clinique Superdefense daycream, but also with a serum, eyecream and a makeupbag. This was all included in a gift box they sell at the moment. Easy to say this is all you need to start spring fresh and alive. Vorige week sprong ik mijn lokale Planet Parfum weer binnen om mijn dagcrème van Clinique uit te halen. Wanneer de winkelbediende me vraagt welke ik nodig heb, moet ik altijd even goed nadenken hoe hij weer heet. Tja, één van de leukere problemen van een product dat maandenlang meegaat. Deze keer ging ik echter met wat meer naar huis. Op dit moment verkoopt Planet Parfum de Clinique Superdefense in een leuke geschenkendoos. …

Let’s beat those chapped lips!

2017 started a while ago and finally there is a first blogpost. At the end of december I needed a little break. Well, clearly that break got out of control. It doesn’t mean I was tired of blogging, on the contrary. During this break I noticed how much I loved – and missed – it. During this hiatus I’ve been thinking about the direction I want to take this blog and everything around it. That also means I got a new layout. I wasn’t planning on it, but it kinda happened. This one feels much more like.. well, me. It took me over a week to perfect it, had to google even more and had to hit the refresh button even more – because damn you css. I like the result, but what do you think? Please let know what you think and if you miss something. 2017 is al twee maanden ver en hier volgt eindelijk een eerste blogpost. Eind december had ik nood aan een ‘kleine’ pauze. Dat is duidelijk een beetje uit de …
