Three mascaras


I’ve done some shopping this week, and I’ll break the stuff I bought down into several posts starting with mascaras. I’m usually not very experimental when it comes to mascara; when I find a mascara I really like I usually stick to that one. My favourite as I’ve mentioned before is Maybelline’s The Falsies Volum’ Express, but because the drugstore had a 2 for 1 deal on Maybelline mascaras I decided to buy two different ones instead of two The Falsies. As you can see I did buy one The Falsies (because it really is an amazing mascara), but for my second one I chose The Rocket Volum’ Express, because I’ve only heard good things about it. I haven’t used it yet, because I only have one or two mascaras open at a time, but I’ll give you my thoughts on it once I’ve tried it. As you can see I bought a third mascara as well. There was a 3 for 2 deal on all Rimmel make-up, so I bought two lip products (obviously) and the Scandaleyes mascara by Kate (Moss) in the colour 006 Eye Rock Amethyst which is an aubergine/plum like colour. I haven’t worn it yet either, but I’m really looking forward to see what looks I can come up with using it.

Casual Monday


Here’s what I wore Monday September 22. A really casual outfit, but mostly that’s what Mondays require:) I did dress up the look a bit with a dark berry lip, but more about that tomorrow.

All black… almost


Here’s what I wore Thursday September 18. I’ve mentioned before how I’m not a huge fan of all black outfits, but I love this (almost) all black one. Maybe because of the white accents and the bordeaux red lips. Or maybe because of the trousers which I bought in England to wear for choir performances and didn’t really thought I would wear after getting back home, but think is lovely now. I love suits and suit inspired looks, so I’m sure I’ll get more use out of them.

Matte Kate


I’ve talked about how much I love the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate lipsticks a million times before, so it was about time that I got my hands on one of the matte versions. I decided to get this dark nude shade, because I don’t really have anything like it, and I thought it was a very pretty colour. I don’t find the finish of this lipstick completely matte, but it’s definitely not shiny either. For a matte lipstick this one doesn’t dry out the lips and all in all I like it so far. I’ll post a picture of me wearing this lipstick another time.
