Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Since I became interested in makeup, I’ve seen a multitude of foundation application techniques come and go. The flat foundation brush, the stippling brush, airbrushing, dense flat-top brushes, and lastly the egg-shaped sponge. We’re branching out to other odd foundation application tools (sillicone in all shapes and sizes) but so far, the egg-shaped sponge is holding its own really well. I know I’m certainly still hooked on mine! I’ve been using the Ebelin make-up sponge, which is a very close Beauty Blender dupe, for a year with pleasure. I bought a pair of Ebelin sponges for my good friend a while back, and as we started talking about how it compared to other brands, I mentioned I’d never used the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge before. It’s a very popular sponge and she wanted me to try it out, so she gifted me one to test. Let’s see what I think of it!

Batiste XXL Volume Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo has become a complete staple in my life, I always have at least one can in my hair drawer and I love trying out new kinds. So far, Batiste dry shampoo is my favourite. I love that their basic dry shampoo does what is expected of it, nothing more and nothing less. It removes the greasy look of hair that could use a wash, but never gets sticky or crunchy or “dirty-feeling”, like some other brands do. I recently got sent a can of the new and improved Batiste XXL Volume dry shampoo, and as I love my hair big of course I had to give it a try and let you know what my thoughts are.

Artdeco Perfect Color Lipstick & Soft Lip Liner

Lip products have been become my favourite makeup item. For a while now all new makeup I’ve bought has been lipstick, except for when I needed to replace something that had run out. I love trying out new colours, formulas and finishes, and my go-to makeup look has been just a winged eyeliner and lipstick for a while now. Recently I got sent a few goodies from the brand Artdeco which isn’t currently available in the Netherlands, but I’ve seen around in Austria. There was a lip combo in the package that I was super excited to try out, so I’m going to share what I thought of it with you today.

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick

I’ve been on a right liquid lipstick kick lately, and loving it. It took me a while to fully immerse myself in the wonderful world of the matte and longlasting, but now I’m all the way in and I don’t want to leave any time soon. And of course, when speaking of liquid lipstick, one can’t pass up NYX: the queen of affordable liquid lipsticks. My brother got me this beautiful set of NYX Liquid Suede cream lipsticks for Christmas (after a subtle hint, of course) and today I’d like to share it with you. Let’s take a look!
