Linen suit

DSC_7051DSC_7050

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.

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.

Bright one colour eye look

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love the bright teal eye make-up! I really want to do more bright one colour eye looks, because they’re easy and fairly quick to do, and they’re so much fun.

Green, navy, and white

Here’s what I wore Tuesday February 19. My green jeans were a perfect match for my new second hand jumper. I love that this outfit is so fun and colourful yet really casual and comfortable.

5 favourites – February

It feels like February just flew by, but I don’t mind, because tomorrow the first month of spring begins. The past few days have been very nice weather-wise, and I really hope that sunny, warmer weather will continue. I had a lot of favourites in February, but I managed to pick five, so here they are.

Brune fløjlsbukser m. vide - H&M

Brown corduroy trousers: These trousers have been a favourite of mine ever since I bought them last autumn, and for some reason I hadn’t featured them in a favourites post before, so I thought it was about time. They are the most versatile non-denim pair of trousers I own.

Hvide Cortez m. rød og blå detaljer - Nike

Nike Classic Cortez sneakers: These shoes have also been a favourite of mine ever since I bought them. They’re just so classic, and they add a ’70s touch to any outfit.

Cherry hair clips: I’m loving the hair clip trend (I love hair accessories in general), and I’ve been loving wearing these cherry ones. I love how they add a little extra something to any outfit.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow palette in Rose in the Air: Wet n Wild is such a great affordable make-up brand, and their eyeshadow palettes are so good! This one has pretty much been my go-to palette this past month. They colours are stunning and they’re really pigmented and easy to blend.

A Star is Born (film): I FINALLY watched this incredible film in the very beginning of the month. It was definitely as great as I hoped it would be; the music is great and both Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga played their roles so well! If you still haven’t watched this, go do it right away.
