Honest About Beauty

We Need To Talk Jolien Nathalie

So, I stopped blogging for a while. That happened. Then a lot of other stuff happened and then I realised I'm basically just trying to figure out what my life is at the moment. What I want to do. What I would like to be. Who I would like to be which, sadly, is what I've been doing for as long as I have been breathing I think, for as long as I can remember. I beat myself up for it, all the time. It makes me sad that I don't know what to do. That I don't have goals, or pretend I don't have goals, or think I pretend I don't have goals. I've been struggling a lot these past months and it hurts, so what I do is try to control the things around me. My house has been looking real neat ever since. My hair too. And my spending habits have made a huge shift.
Skin Care Routine For Acne Prone Skin

My whole life I've had clear skin, always. The only kind of breakouts I would get were tiny little ones caused by fluctuations in my hormones. Back in July this year I suddenly started to have acne all over my forehead, my nose and chin, big painful breakouts that would take ages to heal. I completely freaked out, this hadn't even happened when I hit puberty. Honestly, adult acne sucks. It took me a while to find products that would actually 'work'. Most of the drugstore skin care that I already owned would just cause my skin to break out even more so I ventured into a more expensive skin care realm. Let's have a look!
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Review

Urban Decay has a couple of new products in their makeup line: the UD Troublemaker Mascara, which has been making headlines pretty much everywhere ever since it launched as it claims to be sex proof, and 2 new vice lipsticks with a cream finish: Backseat and Roach. This past Summer I had the amazing opportunity to work together with Urban Decay Belgium for the launch of their newest palette and that's where I also learned more about their lipsticks. I have another Vice lipstick with a metallized finish, in the shade Scorched, and I absolutely love the formula, which is pretty surprising in my case since I seem to have a problem with most high end lipstick formulations. Today I want to know if I like this new cream Vice lipstick just as much as their metallized one.
Essence Fresh & Fit Primer And Foundation

Another day, another blog post, another Essence Cosmetics review! This time we're going to talk about their newest face primer: the Essence Fresh & Fit Awake Primer. I think I've pretty much bought every single primer Essence has released over the past 5 years, the packaging on this one however is probably my favorite. A makeup primer is usually used underneath foundation to create a smooth surface, even out your skin tone and to make sure your foundation performs at its very best. Let's have a look!
Stay At Home Girlfriend

I very much avoid googling the term 'stay at home girlfriend' (SAHG) - mostly because every search result you come across isn't very uplifting. SAHGs are described as having absolutely no passions, as women who are lazy and have no desire to contribute to society. Women whose only goal in life is to please their boyfriend, so he keeps on paying the(ir) bills. I've also read that being a SAHG, apparently, is a 'career choice' now, a lifestyle - an 'I do nothing' one. I am a SAHG and I am none of the above. Welcome to my life.
