Miss Sporty Really Me Stick Foundation

I've noticed it's taking low budget brands quite a while to jump on the stick foundation band wagon. So far, in my drugstore, I've only seen one from NYC. I wonder if MUA, Essence or Catrice Cosmetics will ever launch one because I think it's interesting and very different, formula wise, from what we're used to see in the drugstore. On a trip to the Netherlands I passed by Miss Sporty's makeup display and there I did find one. I love the packaging and the name, it's called the Miss Sporty Really Me Second Skin Effect Foundation.

KIKO Mini Divas Baked Bronzer Review

It's been a while since I've picked up a product from KIKO Milano. I like the brand but often times when I pay their shops a visit I leave empty handed, not so sure why. This past weekend however, it was a little different. The newest limited edition called 'Mini Divas' caught my eye and I was all over the Mini Baked Bronzer in 02 Essential Biscuit. I have an ELF bronzer just like it, and it is one of my absolute staples. I use it as a part of my makeup base all the time so I wanted to see whether this one from KIKO could be similar, if not better!

The Essence Cosmetics Blushplay palette was already launched a couple of months ago but it's taken me until now to actually purchase it and slowly but surely fall in love with it.

Let's have a look at this gorgeous and super affordable sculpting blush palette!

How To Self Medicate When You Suffer From Depression & Anxiety

Many of you who follow my mental health journey, and my struggle with depression and anxiety, seem to be under the impression that I am medicated. Let me break some news for you here: I am not. I am not on antidepressants and I don't take any medicine for my anxiety. While there is no shame in being medicated for a mental illness this is not a topic that has ever been addressed for me even though I am in treatment, and I have chosen to be okay with it, for now. I do however self medicate, every day, and here's how.

The Most Expensive Lipsticks I Own

I get asked pretty often why I don't blog about high end makeup products and the answer is quite simple really: I can't afford it, and to be honest, I don't really mind. Is there content that I cannot create because of that, and things that I miss out on? Absolutely, but I'm making the best of my situation, and as I said, I don't really mind because I genuinely love low budget cosmetics. I do have a couple of high end makeup products in my stash however and those were definitely splurges, or things I bought when I still had a job, let's face the facts. I mentioned on Snapchat the other day how my boyfriend bought me a €12 lipstick and how I thought that was expensive, I received a couple comments about it so I decided to blog about it and feature the most expensive lipsticks from my makeup collection. Let's have a look!

BUDGET TIP: Garnier Skin Care & Hair Care

Garnier is a brand that has quickly become my go-to in the drugstore for hair care and skin care. It started with their famous Micellar Water and later on with their amazing range of shampoos. I feel like they really hit the nail on the head with their products, they are affordable and you all know I love a good bargain. Today I want to share with you my Garnier favorites and absolute staples for the upcoming Summer season!

The 2B Colours makeup brand has three 'cream' face products in their collection: a BB cream, a CC cream and the Illuminating Correcting Cream.
