Summer make up.

Exactly one month ago I tweeted I'd gone to the drugstore and got a few new goodies. I've written about a couple of them already, but I thought I'd show you them, tell you what I think, and tell you how I've been doing my make up this summer.

A review: Kruitvat pure and nature lipbalm.

On Saturday I was browsing through drugstore Kruidvat. I wasn't in need of anything but I picked up this lipbalm. The ingredient list is what persuaded me to buy it, so let's see if it's any good! I also added a few alternatives that should be available in the UK.

Christmas lips: Rimmel Lasting Finish matte lipstick.

Finally. Finally, last week I got that one lipstick I had my eyes on for a very long time. Ever since seeing it in Alix's (I Covet Thee) video in Autumn 2013. I decided I wanted it for autumn and Christmas a few montsh ago and last week I finally found it in the drugstore! Also Kruidvat had a good deal on Rimmel products: 2 for €13. So for only three extra euros I got to leave the store with both the Lasting Finish matte lipstick in shade 107 and the Glam Eyes HD eyeshadow in Brixton Brown

Essence soo glow! highlighter.

One day I was strolling through my local Kruidvat. And there they were: two new humongous displays: one essence the other catrice. I wasn't planning on buying any more make up, but I did not leave the shop empty handed. I got the new soo glow! cream to powder highlighter by essence in the shade 20 bright up your life.

Lately I've been washing my hair with just conditioner again. In the past I've done this on and off for rather extended periods of time. Here's what you need to know about washing your hair with conditioner only.

Seven scents: Puma Fragrance.

In the get to know me tag I did some time ago, I said that I have a favourite perfume brand. It all started many, many years ago: I read a short piece on the Puma Women limited edition in a magazine. I believe it was a perfume brought out for the world cup - football that is, not quidditch! It had a description of the notes and it sounded like a nice scent. So the next time I passed by an Ici Paris store, I went in for a sniff and the next thing I knew, I was buying myself a perfume for the first time ever.
I love many of the fragrances they bring out and they are very affordable. Consequently, as the years passed by, my collection has grown. Here they are in the order in which I think I got them:

What's in my travel toiletry bag.

Last weekend I went on a trip to The Hague with a friend of mine. Whilst packing my rucksack I thought I'd make photos of the things I took with me to show you. (Notice how the sun was gloriously shining!)

Kruidvat nail polish remover.

When I paint my nails, the nail polish starts to chip after a few days or so and thus my nails start to look very unpolished! So when you paint your nails, you kind of have to have a nail polish remover too. 
The one I use is the Kruidvat Nail Polish Remover.
