NYC Individual Eyes Smokey Blues

It was buzzing around for quite a while, and I finally found a drugstore near me which has the new brand NYC, yay!
I just couldn't resist taking one home with me.
This one is a smoke eyes palette, created for blue eyes. I just love the brown colours.

There are two more varieties, I also picked up the purple one, but more on that later.

I present: NYC Individual Eyes Smokey Blues!

Seriously, don't you love it already?
This palette contains 4 colours; 1 highlighter, 1 all over lid colour, and 2 crease/contour colours. I t also contains a creme primer and illuminator.

Buy 1 pallette, and you have eveuything you need to get a stunning look.

Ofcourse I swatched this.
The upper row is without any base/primer, in the lower row I used the primer wich comes with the palette.

As you can see, the colours are really intense when you use the primer. I am impressed by this palette!

One last plus: on the back of the palette is an easy to follow instruction on ho to use the colours.

I Love these palettes, nice quality for a nice price!

My NYE-mani: Sparkling colours

Yesterday I suddenly felt like doing a NYE-mani; one with a lot of glitters and colour.
Fireworks on my nails, if you want ;-)

So, this is what I ended up with, and I must say, I quite like it.

The polishes I used are all China Glaze:

Medallion, Ginger, Dynasty, Mahoganie and Meteor Shower.

I wish you all a great 2011, filled with lots of love, health, and polish!

My favorite handcream

This is a tip for all you ladies out there who just hate those fatty, oily hands after using handcream.

I always have dry hands, but when winter comes, they're really dry and need a lot of care and attention.
I have been searching a good handcream for years, and my search is finally over.

The cream i'm talking about is Essence 24h hand moisture balm, with yoghurt and green tea.

The thing I love about this one, is the fact that it leaves no oily film or any residue after rubbing it on your hands.
It's a light cream, with a nice fresh scent.
But the fact it just disappears after massaging it in your hands for a little while, is really wonderful.

I am not exaggerating, you really have to give it a try.
I bought mine in Germany, for only 95 cents!

Have you already tried this one? What do you think about this handcream?

Preview: Catrice relaunch, can't get enough

Today I attended a little preview-party about the relaunch of a lot of Catrice's products.

Coming this november Catrice will fill the shelves with a lót of new products, with new formulas and ideas.

I must say, it looks really nice.

There will be 32 (!) all new eyeshadows, brushes, duo eyeshadows, new mascaras, lipglosses, powders, etcetera.
You name it, I guess they got it!

Little fun fact about the new lipglosses: they have two different kinds; the 'normal' sheer ones wich just give a little more flair en shimmer to your lips, but also new glosses wich really give a lot of colour!

It was quite a fun day.
First, there was a little presentation of all the products. After that, a lot of testing, and browsing through all those new products.

Here's a little overall-view from some of the new products.
Click on the picture to see a larger version.

Looks quite exciting, right?
I'm especially curious about this product:
Lash Plus Intensive Lash Growth Serum.
It's a serum you put on at night, wich activates the growth of your eyelashes.
Used in combination with the special mascara, it promises 25% longer lashes in one month.
I can't wait to try it out!

About the naillacquers, there will only be three new ones.
That's not much, right?
I hoped they would launch more lacquers, but sadly enough they didn't.
Maybe next time? I would sure love to see some more sparkly and shimmery nailpolishes from Catrice.

But, on to the new lacquers.
There are 3 new colours, and one matte topcoat;

I'm excited about the taupe one, it's named Absolutely Chinchilly.
The other one's are Run Forest Run! and Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans.

Overall I think Catrice did quite a good job on the new make-up collection.
I can't wait to try some of the samples we got.

What product are you excited about?

Nail polish rant: Del Sol polish.

Okay, seriously.
I've been wanting some De Sol polishes for a while now, but just can't get my hands on them, aaaargh!
Even Ebay doesn't suit my needs, as no-one seems to ship internationally :(
What's up with that?
I'm drooling over those polishes, I want them!

So, is there anyone who would be so kind to help me get my hands on some of those pretty Del Sol polishes?
Maybe we can make an international swap out of it?

Oh, by the way, I know I haven't been blogging much lately.
I removed my acrylics about a month ago, and my nails need a lot of rest, hehe.
They're reaaaly thin and brittle now, so only hardeners for me now.

Starry Stylish

My most recent mani (still wearing it) is this one.
I used P2 Stylish, I must say, it's a nice polish.
Great coverage, needed only 2 layers.

Then added some nice stars.
Polish I used for stamping is China Glaze Millennium, such a great polish for stamping!
The plates I used are BM 05 and BM 21 from the bundlemonster plates.

Thanks for stopping by!
