summer treats

 

 

Hey lovelies! How are we all doing today? It’s almost the weekend, phew! In the mean time I decided to treat myself to some goodies. I have been on a low-buy lately, not on purpose but simply because I don’t have time to shop around. Yesterday I had a bit of spare time to go shopping, just really quickly though! I picked up swimming some time ago, and I didn’t had proper swimwear. So now I finally found a nice bikini. I really love the colour as well!

Okay, so bikini: check! I had a little bit more time than I thought so off to the beauty counter I go! This Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Immortal Charcoal 55 has been on my list for a while. I wanted a dark base for my eye shadow and since the Colour Tattoos work really well on me I opted for this one. It’s 10.99 euro. Next up we have a YSL Rouge Volupt√© Shine in Orange Impertinent 16. It’s a warm lighter coral shade that I’ve been eyeing for a while as well. I love the formula a lot, it’s nice and light so off I went with a second one! They go for 29.70 euro. With each purchase you always get plenty of samples and one of them was Flora by Gucci. I’m a big fan of the Flora scents, they are floral (duh) but not too overwhelming for my sensitive nose! I fell in love with the first sniff, it’s super juicy because of the honey melon, yum!

Another summer blush and one that I’ve been wanting forever: Chanel Frivole! It’s the perfect warm peachy shade for the cheeks, with a soft satin sheen. The blushes go for 34.65 euro. Then we have the famous Maybelline the Falsies. This was a bit of an impulse buy and now that I think of it, why did I buy another mascara when I still have tons of samples to try? It must be all the raving reviews from people that got me. I tried it and my first impression is great, it adds lots of volume but I’m slightly concerned about the heavier formula. We’ll see how it goes! The Falsies go for around 10 euro. ¬†And what do we see now? A Chubby-like pen thingie? It’s everywhere right? Well, not so much here in Belgium. At least not readily available. Luckily for us Bourjois launched a summer collection featuring the Colour Boost lip pens. They have a twist-up system and there are four shades available. These are 9.99 euro each! I love the gel-like finish of these, you get some shine but also enough pigment too!

 

Any nice things that you treated to yourself lately? It’s really needed just every now and then, right? ;)

  1. Nice ! Do you getproducts from different brands for free ?

  2. whoa that shade of color tattoo is different than the ones we have here! I wonder if it is just a different name? :)

  3. Chanel Frivole ziet er prachtig uit!

  4. i’ve been seeing these YSL lipsticks everywhere and they’re very seductive! do you think they’re worth the price? (because if you do, i might just have to go and get one :) ) thanks for the post!

    • yes! I think they are really worth it. They are my favourite lipsticks to wear with the warmer weather, they give a glossy shine, are lightweight and really moisturising and pigmented!

  5. Awesome treat!!! Tom Ford cream eyeshadows are my most recent treat but I’m thinking some Molton Brown shower gel would be delight too.

  6. I forgot everything I wanted to say as soon as I saw Frivole… HAHAHAH!

  7. Ooooh nice goodies! I’m quite curious about the Chanel blush and Bourjois Color Boost!

  8. Love that bikini shade! I’ve been thinking about the Chanel Frivole shade myself.

  9. I am so curious about the Bourjois pencil! I love your purchases :)

  10. I have that Falsies mascara too, and I really like it. In fact, I like almost all Maybelline Volum’ Express mascara’s, expect for the cat eye version.

  11. Oh I really need one of those YSL lipsticks soon! The Bourjois chubby pen looks promising as well!
