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.
How Much I Spend On Makeup

November has begun so it's time for another breakdown of how much money I spend on makeup in October and how much makeup I've actually hauled. I've been doing this series for over 10 months already with the purpose of keeping my spending habits in check - and I'm honestly getting a bit nervous about nearing the end of 2017. I'm planning on doing a wrap up post at the end of the year, to assess how much lighter my wallet got over the past 12 months and I think I just might faint a little. Anyway, it's Halloween, shall we check whether I spent a horrifying amount of money on cosmetics? Let's see!
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.
