Mixed Zalando haul

A little while ago I purchased a mix of things from Zalando, and I’m finally getting around to share them with you.

Gul og blå ternet slip kjole m. sorte blonder og slids - Even&Odd

I bought this slip dress in a Clueless-ish print from Even&Odd. I don’t usually go for this type of dress, but I thought it would be fun to style.

Brun og cremefarvet argyle cropped sweater - PULL&BEARHvid T-shirt m. Fantasia Mickey Mouse - PULL&BEAR

I purchased to pieces from PULL&BEAR, which is a brand I haven’t tried before. When you live in a country that has cold weather most of the year, you can never have to many jumpers, and I really liked this argyle one. And you might have noticed that I have a serious weakness for everything Disney, which explains why I got the Mickey Mouse T-shirt.

Hvid Jaws T-shirt - New Look

I’ve been wanting a Jaws T-shirt for so long, and when I saw this one from New Look, I didn’t hesitate to buy it. I love Jaws if you haven’t guessed.

Lastly, I bought a hat, a bag, and a pair of shoes from Topshop, which are some of the things Topshop does best in my opinion. These are all items I’d had in my saved items for quite a while, and when I saw that they were all on sale, I finally purchased them. I’m so excited to style these items.

More pink and blue

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I decided to stick with blue and pink for my make-up as well and went with a pale shimmery blue for the eyes and a hot pink lip.

Pinks and blues

Here’s what I wore Wednesday February 27. This outfit was inspired by the colours of the stripy T-shirt. Pink and blue is a colour combo I haven’t play around with much, but maybe I should, because I really like this outfit.

Comparison: Pore minimising face primers

I sort of recently bought the Maybelline Face Studio Prime Pore Minimizing Primer in order to compare it to the Benefit Porefessional primer, and here are my thoughts.

Maybelline Face Studio Primer

The two products have a very similar texture and feel to them and a similar nude colour too, which turns sheer when you apply the products to your skin. The Benefit primer sinks into the skin a bit faster than the Maybelline primer, but they look very similar on the skin. The day I compared the two primers I wore each primer on one half of my face. I wore my make-up for about 9 hours, and I didn’t see any noticable differences between the left and right side of my face. My make-up looked equally good on both sides of my face, and in conclusion I would say that the Maybelline Face Studio Prime Pore Minimizing Primer is a great affordable alternative to Benefit Porefessional.

Linen suit

Here’s what I wore Tuesday February 26. I’ve had this linen two piece set/suit since last summer, but this was my first time wearing both pieces together. Even though the colour scheme of this outfit is very neutral, I think the pattern mix and the bright white boots make the outfit interesting.

Lack of pigmentation

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I gave The Douce palette by Juvia’s Place another try, and once again I was disappointed by the lack of pigmentation in the shadows. The pigmentation of my other Juvia’s Place palettes is incredible, so I don’t know if I just got a bad product.

(Base: primers – Wet n Wild CoverAll primer + MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Illuminating Base (shade: Radiant Yellow), foundation – Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation (shade: 110 Porcelain), concealers – MAC Pro Longwear concealer (shade: NC20) + Maybelline Fit Me concealer (shade: 05), powders – e.l.f. HD Undereye setting powder in Sheer + Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin powder Foundation (shade: 005 Light Beige).

Lime green, roses, and snake print

Here’s what I wore Thursday February 21. Ever since I bought this lime green jumper, I’d been wanting to wear it with this floral skirt. Then I added the snake print boots, then the scarf to match the muted peachy colour of the roses on the skirt, and suddenly I had put together a really fun outfit.

Collective drugstore haul: Essence, Wet n Wild, Revolution and more

DSC_7089DSC_7088

I’ve been buying a few drugstore products here and there lately, so I thought I would do a collective drugstore haul. I’ve heard such good things about the Wet n Wild Photofocus foundation and the Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage concealer, so I thought I would try those out. I’ll been doing first impressions posts on both products. I bought the Maybelline Face Studio Pore Minimizing primer hoping it would be a dupe for the Benefit Porefessional primer. I did a comparison of the two, which I’ll do a post on very soon. As you might have noticed, I don’t ususally fill in my brows, but I thought I would give the e.l.f. Brow Pencil a try. This doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m going to fill in my brows on a daily basis, I just wanted to try it out. Lastly, I’ve purchased three products from Essence. I really like a lot of Essence products, so I’m excited to try these out. I bought the Essence Matt Touch blush (shade: 10 Peach Me Up!), the Essence Camoflage+ Matt concealer (shade: 10 Light Rose), and then I was very intrigued by three new eyeshadow palettes. I loved the colour scheme of all three of them, but I decided to try out one first, and if I like it, I might get the other ones. The palette I chose is called G’Day Sydney, and it’s a neutral palette with some pops of green. I’ve tested out an Essence eyeshadow palette before, which I wasn’t impressed by (check out my first impressions here), but the shades in this palette swatched beautifully, so I’m excited to see if they’re any better.
