First impressions: Essence Melted Chrome eyeshadow

dsc_6514

If often check out the make-up section at my local supermarket, and I was very intrigued by these Essence Melted Chrome eyeshadows, so I decided to try them out.

first impressions

They claim to be have a liquid chrome-effect, and they definitely do. I applied the eyeshadow with my finger, which was very easy, and it felt liquid to the touch. As you can see, it has nice pigmentation and it’s very shiny. In the pictures above, I’m wearing the middle shade, which is called 02 iconic, and as you can see, it looks a lot less gold on the eyes. It looks more champagne though it is still a pretty shade. It looked very nice all throughout the day, and it was very easy to remove (I used micellar water). All in all, this is a very nice affordable product that makes it easy to add glitter to an eye look without having a lot of fallout.

5 favourites – December

Christmas is over, tonight it’s New Year’s Eve, and at midnight a new year begins. 2019. How time flies! 2018 was a very eventful year for me. I got my master’s degree, I got my first ‘adult’ job (in only three days it’ll be my one year work anniversary), and I also moved into my first apartment. All in all, 2018 was a good year, and I’m excited to see what 2019 has to offer. But first I want to wish you all a happy and safe new year, and then let’s say goodbye to 2018 with some December favourites.

Candy cane earrings: Based on my recent outfit posts, you have probably noticed that I’m very serious about festive dressing. I love my Christmas jumpers, and I love christmassy accessories to go with them. My favourite festive earrings have been these cute candy cane ones from the UK wepshop Lisa Angel.

Rød velour scrunchie

Red velvet scrunchie: I also like my hair to be festive, and this schruncie has been my go-to hair accessory. I’ll definitely continue to wear this in the new year as well.

The Body Shop Peppermint Candy Cane shower gel

The Body Shop Peppermint Candy Cane shower gel: I love the scent of peppermint and candy canes, and this shower gel smells incredible in my opinion. I’ve been using it nonstop throughout December, and it’s another favourite that I’ll continue to use in the new year.

Suits

Suits (TV series): Suits has been on the top of my ‘must watch’ list for a long time, and when I was ill with the flu in the beginning of December, I decided to finally start watching it. I’m almost done with season 3, and I can’t wait to watch more. It’s such a great show with handsome male leads:)

My first Christmas tree: I got my very first Christmas tree this year, and you have no idea how much I’ve enjoyed decorating it and looking at it. I got some decorations from my grandfather and I’ve also bought some at different second hand stores, so I had a quite old fashioned Christmas tree, which is right up my alley.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! I hope you’re all having a lovely Christmas or whatever you may be celebrating. In Denmark we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve, and this is what I wore last night. I thought this green dress was perfect for the occation, but sadly I tore a hole in it (without noticing it until late in the evening), so it’ll be my first and last time wearing this dress.

(Dress – VRS, heels – & Other Stories)

Christmas haul: clothes

It’s finally December 1, so it’s time for my annual Christmas clothing haul. I’m going to split it up into two parts; clothes (jumpers and T-shirts) and accessories (socks and jewellery etc.). Let’s start with clothes.

Rød sweater m. rensdyr, sne og musik - VRSRød sweater m. snemand og sne - VRS

Once again, some of the Danish chain supermarkets nailed their Christmas jumpers this year. I couldn’t choose between the reindeer and the snowman so I purchased both. The reindeer one plays Jingle Bells when you press it’s nose, and it’s just so cute. The snowman one has pom poms on it, and on the back of the jumper the snowman has melted and the whole text says ‘You are worth melting for’. I can’t wait to wear these!

Mørkeblå sweatshirt m. pallietguilander og julepynt - Only

If the two previous jumpers are a bit much for your taste, this navy sweatshirt with sequins from Only is a more toned down option. I love a bit of sparkle, and the details on this top are so nice.

Rød sweater m. julemænd, pakker, snemænd m.m. - H&M

H&M usually has a good selection of Christmas jumpers, and my favourite this year is this super festive red jumper. It has a lot of details, and I love the colours.

Grå sweater m. julemandshaj - H&M

I found this grey jumper at the boys’ section at H&M. I love the film ‘Jaws’, and I thought this jumper was a bit of fun.

Grå T-shirt m. rød metallic jinglebells - H&MHvid T-shirt m. Wham Last Christmas print - H&M

I told myself not to buy any Christmas T-shirts this year, because it’ll be to cold to wear a T-shirt on it’s own, but then I thought that I’d have to wear something underneath my jumpers, and it might as well be festive. Both of these T-shirts are from H&M. The first one is quite simple, but I liked the red metallic writing. Of course I had to have the Wham! one, because I love a graphic T-shirt (especially one with a pop culture reference), and I love ‘Last Christmas’ (but who doesn’t)! Stay tuned for the second part of my Christmas haul.

5 favourites – November

It’s the last day of November which means that my favourite month starts tomorrow. I’ve been waiting for December and Christmas for so long now, and I can’t wait! You’ll be seeing a lot of christmassy outfits and hauls on my blog in December, but before we get into that let’s talk about some of my favourite things from the month of November.

Brun pelsjakke - second hand

Brown faux fur coat: It’s gotten a lot colder outside, so I’ve been wearing my winter coats lately. My most worn coat this past month is this faux fur coat that my sister found years ago at a second hand store. It’s just so nice and snuggly.

Blå slim mom jeans m. Mickey Mouse print - H&M

Mickey Mouse jeans: These jeans are just awesome. The fit is great, and I love the Mickey Mouse print. I’m wearing them here and here.

Blå glimmer sock boots m. chunky hæl - Monki

Blue glitter boots: This style of boot from Monki is so good! Last month I featured the checked version of these in my 5 favourites, and I love these blue glitter ones just as much.

Lilla hue

Purple beanie: I find it difficult to find the perfect beanie, but I think I might have found it in this purple Monki one. It fits well, and the colour is stunning.

elf HD undereye setting powder

e.l.f. HD Undereye setting powder in Sheer: I’ve never been a huge fan of loose powders (maybe I just don’t know how to use them properly), but I’ve really enjoyed using this undereye setting powder from e.l.f. It doesn’t feel cakey or dry on the skin, and it keeps my concealer crease-free all day. And it’s affordable too.

Jeffree Star Velour lip liners

DSC_6126

It’s been about a month since Jeffree Star launched his Velour lip liners, so you probably know all about them, but I wanted to do a quick post on them anyways. Jeffree Star Cosmetics is one of my absolute favourite make-up brands, and the Velour liquid lipsticks are my favourite lipsticks, so I was quite excited about this launch. Jeffree Star made 17 shades corresponding to shades from his Velour liquid lipstick range, and I decided to get 5 of my favourite shades. The shades I’ve purchased are (from the top) Anna Nicole, Redrum, Calabasas, Celebrity Skin, and Leo. The lip liners claim to be creamy, long-lasting, and to have extreme payoff, and all three things are true. They are creamy, but not too soft, and they are long-lasting and really pigmented. I’m excited to see if Jeffree Star releases more shades in the future.

5 favourites – October

We are approaching the last official month of autumn, and the Danish weather has definitely been autumnal lately. Even wintery as it snowed last weekend. We sure are getting closer to December and Christmas, and Christmassy things have started to show up at most stores. You can probably imagine how excited I am! I have already started to collect some bits for my upcoming Christmas clothing haul. But we still have one month to go, and before November begins, let’s talk about some October favourites.

Beige og brun ternede støvler m. chunky hæl - Monki

Checked boots: I’m so happy that I bought these checked boots from Monki. They are so comfortable, and they’re are in the perfect autumn colours. I’ve already worn them quite a bit, but I know that I’ll get a lot more use out of them.

DSC_6024

L’Oréal Paradise Extatic mascara: When I did my first impressions post on this mascara, I mentioned how this is the best mascara I’ve tried other than my favourite one, Maybelline The Falsies. I’ve worn this mascara all month, and I still really enjoy using it.

Laura Geller highlighter duo 1

Laura Geller baked highlighter in French Vanilla (the shade on the left): I’ve heard lots of Youtubers talk about this highlighter. I usually go for a more intense highlighter, but French Vanilla is such a gorgeous more natural highlighter that still gives your skin the most beautiful glow.

elf

Elf (film): I’ve watched so many films this past month, and a lot of them I hadn’t watched before. I loved most of the films I watched, but I couldn’t feature all them in this post, so I narrowed them down to my two favourites. The first one is a classic Christmas film; Elf. Considered how much I love Christmas, it’s strange that I hadn’t watched this one until earlier this month. I guess I hadn’t watched it because I don’t particularly like Will Ferrell, but there’s a reason why Elf is a classic. I loved it, and I’ll definitely rewatch it.

diehard

Die Hard (film): My other favourite film I’ve watched this past month is another (Christmas) classic. And again, I see why this is a classic. It’s simply a great action film. I also watched the second one, and I’m really looking forward to watch the rest of this film series.
