The Holland Beauty Awards 2013

Hi all, 

Yesterday the Holland Beauty Awards have been given to the BEST BEAUTY PRODUCTS from 2012. I was very curious about the winning products and so I followed the Holland Beauty Awards on twitter. And when they had a giveaway of course I joined, which made me win an AMAZING goodiebag with some of the best beauty products according to the awards! More about my priceless goodiebag from Holland Beauty Awards later this week! Maybe even an unboxing video! Which would be my first video-log!

The awards where divided into different categories, lips; nails; eyes; foundation; perfume (mens / womens); salon; bodycare; luxurious bodycare; facial care; luxurious facial care and hair. Besides this categories they also picked out the best Beauty Blogger, a dutch pretty celeb with a good heart and every magazine working with the Holland Beauty Awards choose their own favorite product. Check out all the award winning products HERE! 

From all the winning products I LOVE Essie the most, their nailpolishes are just perfect! Great coverage within two layers, amazing colors and the nailpolish doesn’t chip that much! Besides that I would love to try the YSL lipcolor. It’s great right, a lipgloss with the color and coverage of a lipstick? Also I would still love to try out the OPI Gelcolors, I heard good things about the product and with this award won I will definitely go to a nail saloon very soon! Concerning the Nivea and Andrelon products, loved them from the beginning these products are just great. Mostly dry shampoo is one of the best inventions ever! Last but not least, after reading a bit more about the Chanel Coco Noir perfume I really need to go smell that scent and decide if I want / need to have it… The description of the perfume sounds perfect so I am very curious!

Do you know, that YOU are BEAUTIFUL?

Saw this great video from DOVE this morning and I almost teared up…
It’s just incredible to see how woman don’t know they are beautiful while others do see that beauty.

Check out the video:

What do you think of this amazing video? 

Do you sometimes or maybe even most of the time feel like you are not beautiful? You are beautiful! 
I’m sometimes very insecure about my appearance, which I think everyone is sometimes! 

Let this video learn you a lesson, you are beautiful! xoxo

PS: just found out you can compliment your friends with a DOVE facebook App

Hi my dearest followers, hope you are all doing well today!

Today I went to the V&D one of the biggest Dutch department stores, because there is a special discount action going on. It’s called Prijzencircus haha so in English probably something like the circus of prices, I don’t know… In this discount action they always have a Sephora action. This used to be 3 for €10 but this time it was €5 each item accept for primer and foundation (these are €7.50). Since I happen to love Sephora ever since the first items I bought from the brand (during one of the 3 for €10 actions) I just needed to go and buy some lovely make up!

And maybe, if you are Dutch, you have heard: Sephora is leaving Holland. Think about it, this action could maybe be your last chance!!! So yesterday evening I made this list with items I really wanted to have, while knowing I probably would not find everything but, it was worth trying! For example I found 3 blushes that were on my list, illumination powder and an eyeshadow.

In the pictures you can see what I have bought. I will make some reviews for you on some of the products. For example the eyeshadow since I have heard the eyeshadow from Sephora doesn’t have good pigmentation… What do you think of the items from Sephora???

PS: fyi this is a mobile post, which probably doesn’t look as well as the other posts! I will try to fix this as soon as I arrive home 🙂
