YSL Flowercrush Rouge Volupte no. 32 Corail Jalouse

Hey there lovelies,

for my birthday I received quite a lot to gift cards for my favorite make up store, so when I saw the new YSL spring collection Flowercrush, one of their lipsticks was at the very top of my list. The other day my order finally came in and once again I fell in love with the YSL lipsticks.

For their new spring collection they have added 4 new shades to their Rouge Volupte Lipstick line. One very bright pink shade, one coral shade and two red shades. I decided to go with the coral shade called Corail Jalouse, because I don’t own a similar lipstick shade to it.

The packaging is, like always, very luxurious. The lipstick itself is very easy to apply and lasts quite long. I absolutely love the color though. It is a pink coral kind of shade and perfect for spring and summer. One other amazing aspect is that the lipstick actually smells kind of peachy.

It’s no secret, that I love the YSL lipsticks and this might become my new favorite. The color is gorgeous and perfect for spring. It lasts pretty long and it looks so stunning.

Have you tried any of the YSL products?

Have a great weekend!

Hey lovelies!

I think I might have just found my new favorite perfume in the entire world. Ever since I received a little sample of this perfume I’ve been wanting to have it but at 60,95€ for 30ml it comes at quite a high price. Hence I put it on my birthday wish list and my generous grandparents got it for me.

The flacon is quite simple and elegant and though I do love cute flacons, like pretty much all of the Marc Jacobs perfumes, I don’t mind that it is so simple because this fragrances is amazing.

Now I’m going to try to describe the smell of it to you but I totally suck at describing perfumes, so here goes my try. The name Flowerbomb is quite fitting because the smell does hit you like a bomb. It’s like an explosion of flowery and really sweet scents. On websites is describes as a  luxurious, floral perfume with Sambac Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Cattleya Orchid, Ballerina Freesia and Patchouli notes and I totally agree with that.  Apart from the flowery scent it does smell extremely sugary and sweet though. I prefer fragrances like that but I know not everyone does.

I seriously love it and I can’t stop smelling it. Even though it is very pricey it’s definitely worth the money because you don’t need to spray on much of it and it will still last almost all day as the scent is quite intense and lingers on your skin.

This is just perfect for spring and summer as it smells so sweet and flowery. I can’t get enough of it and I would recommend it to anyone who likes sugary, floral and sweet scents as it is a perfect combination of those.

Happy Monday!

A Day In Amsterdam

With exams finally being over this weekend was my first free weekend in about a month. At first I was planning on just doing nothing and chilling out to recover from exams but then I figured that’d be kinda boring. So I was thinking of what to do and then it came to me. I’ve been living in the Netherlands since last September now but I haven’t actually seen that much of the country except for the city I’m living in, which I really adore but I just wanted to see more. Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, is about an hour and a half by train from here, so I decided to pack up a few things, go to the train station, buy a ticket and hop on the next train to Amsterdam.

I’m so glad I came up with this idea and that I went through with it. I just felt a little adventurous and I love traveling and checking out new places, so I just went for it. I usually don’t travel alone and I was a bit nervous that I’d catch the wrong train and end up God knows where but everything went fine and I had an amazing day exploring the city.

When I left it was actually quite chilly and cloudy outside but the second I arrived at Amsterdam Central Station the sun came out. So here are some pictures of this absolutely beautiful city.

I think Amsterdam just became one of my favorite cities in Europe. It is such a beautiful place. They have the cutest little houses and there’s all these canals. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to do one of those canal tours but I sure am doing one next time. Amsterdam is such a lovely and charming city I can’t get over it.

I’ve been to Amsterdam before but only once when I was a bout three years old. We still have a picture of me running around in tiny little rubber boots chasing doves. This time I obviously didn’t run around chasing doves and luckily I didn’t need rubber boots because the weather was gorgeous. After walking around the harbour and looking over the canals I walked to the city centre and did a little bit of shopping. They have the coolest stores there. Thank God the University of Amsterdam doesn’t offer my study program because if I was living there I’d probably totally broke and instead of studying I’d be sitting near the water just watching the ships go by.

Okay, I think I’ve fallen a bit in love with Amsterdam and before I continue to bore you with my ramblings I’m just going to stop now. But yeah you’ve probably noticed by now that I’ve had an amazing day and I can’t wait to go back again.

Any of you ever been to Amsterdam?

Happy Sunday!

One Random Haul

Hey everyone! I just finished my last exam  2 hours ago and I can now go back to a regular life schedule. YAY! Exams are just the most stressing thing for me, so I  cannot tell you how happy I am that it’s finally over. I get to have a social life again and actually some sleep. How awesome is that?

Anyway.. I didn’t write this to bore you with my busy student life. Just like most girls I always find an excuse to shop whether it’s because I passed an exam, failed one, I’m homesick or just see something I totally need. I always come up with an excuse, so of course during 2 weeks of exams I had to buy a few things to prevent me from going insane. Apart from that there’s a drugstore right next to the supermarket I like to go to for my grocery shopping, which makes it really hard to not buy something. And since I am guilty of buying quite a few things I though I’d do a little haul for you.

Catrice Cosmetics Cover Stick & Concealer

The concealer is, besides the Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder, the only thing I bought intentionally. I was looking for a new concealer and I recently posted about this brand I discovered and how much I loved their blush. You can read my review here. Since all of their products are so affordable I decided to give them ago, which is why most of the products featured in this haul are from Catrice Cosmetics.

Catrice Cosmetics Primer

I ran all out of primer, so I went to get a new one. I was in a rush and didn’t pay much attention, so I ended up being a primer for color correcting. Luckily I don’t suffer much from redness, which is why I can’t get much use out of this product. I had to go back and get a different, one which I’ve been using for a week now and I totally love it.

How gorgeous are these colors? I’m in love. For those of you who’ve been reading my blog for a while, you might know how much I like the color green and especially mint green. I don’t really own a lot of green eyeshadows because my eyes are blue and I tend to use colors, that make my eyes stand out more but I couldn’t go past this beauty. I absolutely love the colors and you can create some really pretty make up looks with it.

Since I loved their blush so much I got another one. This is like a brownish reddish kind of color. It’s really pretty and a very warm color.

Catrice Cosmetics Lipstick & Nail Polish Another PinkPanther (Limited Edition)

Catrice Cosmetics are currently having this line of spring beauty products, where these two cuties are from. I absolutely love the pastel pink shade. When I first tried out the lipstick I wasn’t to fond of it but the more I tried it out the more I liked it. The nail polish is just gorgeous. It’s a really girl color because it’s a very light pink but I love that it is very shimmery. I just think it’s perfect for spring.

Obviously I didn’t get these in a drugstore but I just adore them so much I had to share them with you guys. I seriously cannot wait to wear these this summer. I have a feeling they’re gonna become one of my faves.

Hope you liked this post! Happy Friday!
