Primark PS PRO Liquid Matte Lipsticks Review

Primark Beauty recently released more new makeup: the PS PRO Kiss Proof Liquid Matte Lipsticks!

I Tried To Break Up With My Therapist

It's been a while since I've written about my therapy sessions and how I've been coping with anxiety and depression. My last posts were pretty dramatic, talking about how disappointed I was with my treatment, how I wanted to switch therapists, and so on and so forth. I also never talked about the two major mental breakdowns I had during a couple of sessions and how that actually became a breakthrough for my recovery.

L'Oreal Cushion De Soleil Bronzer

After reviewing the L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation, I couldn't wait to try the cushion bronzer that was released right along with it: the L'Oreal Glam Bronze Cushion De Soleil Fresh Glow Bronzer. I was so impressed with the formula of the foundation that another cushion product review definitely was appropriate, and a fresh beachy tan is something I'm always into. L'Oreal is the first company to release drugstore cushion products in Belgium, let's have a look! Are cushion bronzers a yay or a nay?

NYC Makeup Review

New York Color cosmetics recently caught my attention because of their gorgeous, newly released, 'Get it all Lip Colors'. I was so surprised and excited about those that I decided to try more of the brand. I purchased the Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder in 001 Naturally Beige, the Show Time Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in 001 True black, the Smooth Skin Liquid Concealer in 1 Light, the Get it all Stick Foundation in 102 Natural Beige and the Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer 684. Even though NYC makeup has been available in Belgium for a long time, they don't often wow me in the drugstore, will they catch my attention now? Let's have a look!

ETOS CC Radiance Cream Review

CC creams are my ride or die when it comes to makeup. It stands for 'Color Correcting' cream and is a great solution for anyone who struggles with skin that is prone to redness, dark spots or hyperpigmentation. The best CC cream I have encountered to so far is the 2B Cosmetics CC cream. The formula is lightweight, it has a light to medium coverage and it's incredibly affordable. I wear CC creams because it makes my skin look flawless but leaves it still able to breathe, and look naturally healthy. Etos promises us a color correcting, radiance boosting cream with medium coverage! Let's have a look.

New York Color Cosmetics released some new makeup products and I had to #Getitall! 'Get it all' is the name NYC makeup is using for their new products and among those is a new lipstick range: the NYC Get it all Lip Colors. They have 10 different colors available, which are all pretty warm toned and vary from mauves to darker browns and reds. I picked up nr 101 ExceptionNUDEa plum lipstick, and 400 ExtraordiBERRYa berry red lipstick. Let's have a look!

Essence Mosaic Blush Review

Essence Cosmetics has always been promising when it comes to blushes, especially their (discontinued) Silky Touch Blushes, I have a couple of those in my makeup stash that are very loved. The Essence Mosaic Blushes are a new addition to the makeup line, they were added at the beginning of last year and there are 4 shades available: 10 miss floral coral, 20 all you need is pink, 30 kissed by the sun and 40 the berry connection. When I was shopping for Essence's new makeup collection I never anticipated picking even one of these up, now I have 3. Here are my thoughts!
