dior holiday 2017 collection precious rocks

I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking forward to the Holiday collections. Despite sticking to the same packaging every year, Dior manages to suck me in every time. The gold details look very chic and sophisticated, and even though they are a nod at old-school glamour, they are never really out of style. They almost look like Christmas ornaments on their own, making them the perfect collectables or gifts for the Holiday season.

This year though Dior – or should I say Peter Philips (yay Belgium!) – has really outdone himself and created a collection around gemstones that is absolutely stunning. Meet the ‘Dior Precious Rocks‘! View Post

Long time no foundation review! Today I’d like to shine the spotlight on one of my favourite drugstore foundations that is now available in a whopping 21 shades in Belgium! To American readers this is nothing new, but if you live in a country where the average shade range has 6 to 8 shades, this is one ‘hallelujah!‘ moment. Finally a shade for everyone! Or is there?

If you have combination-to-oily skin and have trouble keeping your makeup on all day, a setting or finishing powder is really what you need. I’m usually hesitant to use powders because I’m afraid to lose my natural glow and end up with cakey makeup, but for this gem I’ll gladly make an exception. Meet the Skinfood Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder! View Post

2017  Was pretty much the year of “13 Reasons Why“. I couldn’t go online, read a newspaper or watch tv and not read or hear about the controversial Netflix series. It was everywhere. Even though I loved the show and am looking forward to Season 2 (coming in 2018), there’s one show that premiered this year that I love even more and think everyone should watch: Big Little Lies.

Earlier this year I spotted a familiar new brand at the local drugstore. Bioré is a brand by Japanese cosmetics company Kao Corporation that mainly focuses on pore care. In Japan this is a well-loved drugstore brand that has been around for years and has a wide range of products. For the Benelux launch, the brand opted to offer a small selection of products targeted at people with oily & combination skin. I picked up a few and will share my thoughts below.. View Post
