Funfetti

DSC_6462rediDSC_6454redi

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’m wearing the Jouer Funfetti lip topper on top of my favourite lipstick, and I think it looks beautiful and very festive. As I wrote in my recent make-up haul, I’m not very fond of lipgloss, but this gloss was very comfortable to wear.

Beauty Bay bragging rights haul

Leading up to Black Friday, Beauty Bay had a ‘bragging rights’ sale, and I bought a few things.

I finally decided to buy the Jeffree Star Androgyny eye shadow palette. Jeffree Star eye shadows are some of my favourites, and the shades in this palette are gorgeous. I’m really looking forward to create lots of different eye looks using this palette.

I already have one of these Milani blushers, and it’s one of my favourite blushers, so I decided to get a second shade. I chose the shade Blossomtime Rose, which is a warm peachy colour with a nice sheen to it.

Lastly, I bought one of the Jouer Long-Wear Lip Toppers in the shade Funfetti. I’m not into lipgloss, but this just looked so pretty with all the different colours of glitter, so I thought I would give it a go.

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.

Colour and glitter

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love doing my make-up for a night out, because I get to play around with colour and glitter.

Jeffree Star Holiday 2018

DSC_6327DSC_6331DSC_6335

Jeffree Star released his 2018 holiday collection two weeks ago, and of course I picked up a handful of products from the collection. I purchased three of the Velour liquid lipsticks and one Velour lip scrub. The white iridescent packaging is stunning and the glitter is the icing on the cake. The lipstick shades that I picked up are Karma (warm khaki green), Hi, How are Ya? (red w. glitter), and Triggered (dark plum brown w. glitter). So far I’ve only worn Triggered and it was so pigmented and absolutely gorgeous. The lip scrub that I picked up is the salted caramel flavoured one, and I love everything salted caramel. I think Jeffree Star created another gorgeous holiday collection this year.

Ombré match

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I might have to start wearing more brown and purple make-up looks, because I think the two colours look great together. I did an ombré lip to match the colour of my T-shirt, and I think I came close to a perfect match.

MAC Shiny Pretty Things holiday 2018

DSC_6230DSC_6244

Since 2014 I’ve been purchasing a couple of products from the MAC holiday collections, and this year is no exception. The collection this year is called Shiny Pretty Things, and it has shiny silver packaging. I bought two products; a face palette and a lipstick.

The Nutcracker Sweet peach face compact from the 2016 holiday collection is one of my favourite MAC products of all time. Therefore, I decided to get one of the face compacts from this year’s collection. I got the one in Fair (it also comes in Medium/Deep), and it consists of an Extra Dimension Skinfinish in the shade String Lights, an Extra Dimension blush in the shade Sweater Weather, and an Extra Dimension bronzer in the shade Five-Alarm Kiss. The Nutcracker Sweet compact didn’t include a bronzer, so I’m really happy that MAC included one in this year’s face compacts. I love the Extra Dimension formulas, and I’m really enjoying this product so far. I think it’ll be great for traveling as well.

I always get one of the lipsticks, and from this collection I chose the shade Straight Fire. It’s in a matte metallic finish, which I hadn’t tried from MAC before, but I absolutely love this lipstick. I love the finish and I love the colour. It’s a beautiful deep metallic red; perfect for the holiday season (and autumn and winter in general).
