All about BB cream!


Ik heb van BBcreamshop (BBcreamshop op facebook) een paar BBcreams gekregen om uit te proberen, BBcreams zijn nog niet echt populair in Nederlands, terwijl eigenlijk iedereen ze gebruikt in Aziatische landen, en eigenlijk hebben zij allemaal een prachtige huid. Daardoor ben ik erg nieuwschierig geworden en ben ik een aantal weken deze producten uit gaan proberen.

Hier wat uitleg over BBcreams, en een filmpje over hoe handig BBcream wel eigenlijk is!

Roaccutane Journey – Skin Vlog 2


So I’m in week 2 from roaccutane now, I had some side effects like: dry lips, skin and eyes. I also had my eczema, but using the creams the dermatologist gave me, it’s all better again. She also have me eye drops against dry eyes, it’s called Hypromellose, I have to use it 3 to 5 times a day 1 drop. And it helps pretty much. And a day after the video I noticed that I’m really tired and I had a really bad headache, I lay on bed for a couple days, but that’s noting special for me, so I just watch it if it’ll get worse.

All about Nail Polish mini-haul!



I couldn’t resist buying even more nail polish, I bought a really pretty shimmery blue from BornPrettyStore in #03, it’s called Glitter Blue Silver Shimmer Nail Polish Glitter Nail Art #03 on the website. And I also bought some from essence, I actually don’t like essence, but these where so pretty, from the vampire series. I bought a dark shimmery blue in 02 into the dark and a pretty dark rich purple which is really shimmery in 03 true love. And I also bought my essence ultra strong nail repair base/top coat, I always use this one.

These are the swatches from the colors, just one layer of polish. 1st without and 2nd with flash

Nicki Minaj – Moment 4 life Make Up Look!


I love all the crazy make up that Nicki wears, so I wanted to start off with this easy one, from her music video “moment 4 life”. She has over all a really pretty winged eye liner, the first one with some glitter on the eyelids, the second (god mother) only the liner and further in the video this look with a pretty touch of blue!

I’m going to do more Nicki make up tutorials, the next one will be the “bed rock” look.

Hope you enjoy!

Lime Crime Lipscticks



Pop Romance: Your lips, uncensored.

Our Fairytale

Like most real-life fairy tales, Lime Crime began as one girl’s dream to make the world a brighter place. Conceptualized in 2008 as an answer to a beauty industry ironically often devoid of color, NYC-LA based makeup artist and style blogger, Doe Deere, teamed up with a group of chemists to create a line of cosmetics she’s always dreamed of.

Lime Crime challenges the norm with fashion-forward shades and unmatched color payoff, which allows you to create looks as vivid and unique as you are. We are committed to providing the kind of fantasy makeup experience you deserve and couldn’t get from any other brand! Our mascot, a sparkling unicorn, serves as a symbol of individuality and freedom of self-expression. Advancing the idea of a modern woman using makeup as more than just the means to get pretty — but, indeed, as an accessory — Lime Crime lipsticks are encased in purple unicorn-adorned tubes, making every application a fantastical event!

Lime Crime has been featured in Elle, Nylon, Heat, Daily Candy, Teen Vogue, MTV Buzzworthy, and boasts high-profile fans such as Adele, Cat Deeley, Katy Perry, Robyn, M.I.A. and celebrity makeup artists around the world. The range is carried in SpaceNK stores, as well as other select boutiques across the globe.

Our Cruelty-Free Pledge

As an animal-friendly company, we take great care to ensure that the products you buy from us are cruelty-free, never tested on animals, and most even vegan (i.e., devoid of any animal products including beeswax). Look for a ‘Vegan’ sign on our product pages!

Lime Crime donated a portion of proceeds in 2010 to a non-profit animal shelter, Bideawee.

Doe Deere: Founder/Creative Director

Doe Deere was born in Russia and moved to New York City at the age of 17. She currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband & business partner Mark, and three cats. She was named one of the ‘Top Inspiring Women Enterpreneurs of 2010’ by Self-Made magazine alongside Suze Orman and Arianna Huffington.

A Thank-You To Our Customers

None of this would be possible without YOU! We thank our supporters from the bottom of our heart for making us a colorful fixture in the online makeup community.

Roaccutane Journey – Skin Vlog

I’ve had acne since I was 10, so that’s almost 7 years now. I tried so much:

Clinique 3 steps skin care, I used that for 3 years I think, first the most harsh one, then the mild one because my skin didn’t react that great on it. Then the ‘blemish’ line came out, and I used that one. Even tough it is such a great skin care line I stopped with it. first because it’s really expensive in Holland and because my skin got immune of it. This process costed me a lot money, hundreds euros.

In the main time I did go to my doctor, She gave me the Diane-35 anti-conception pill since in there are a lot hormones that would reduce acne. It worked a lot, but my acne was still really bad. So she gave me all kind of things, some things with a lot alcohol in it, some pills and a vitamin C cream. My skin reacted on that, but it got so sensitive that I couldn’t put anything on it. So I used the Clinique Redness Solutions line, which helped a my skin getting better. This costed me like the first 3 doses of pills, so 80 euro, something like that. And of course the skin care.

That process took another 2 years, and my skin ‘recovering’ process took also half a year. So in the main time 6 years later, I did go to my dermatologist. That was I step I had to take 5,5 years ago, but yeah…..

She started to give me Duac AcneGel, that was a total miss guess, after using that my eczema came back, I’ve had eczema also for like 4 years, on my face, body everywhere.. This time I only got little spots on my face and neck.

So after that she gave me a other cream and vitamin C pills. Eryacne 20mg/g gel and Minocycline 100PCH pills. I’ve been using that for 5 months I think, and it helped a lot! But it can’t get better with these to. I still have acne, acne scars, a lot of redness and under skin pimples. but absolutely better than ever! The dermatologist process (so far) costed me once 10 euros, because the duac gel wasn’t free. All the other medicines are insured.

Now she gave me roaccutane 20mg, I have to take 3 pills a day. But since it’s very drying she also gave me Calmurid Cream for my body and Elidel Cream for my face, both are for eczema or very dry skin. I also bought myself some skin care from Clarins and a scrub from The Body Shop.

I wan’t to keep you guys updated by my journey of Roaccutane. And below here you can find information about roaccutane.

Here A video about (Ro)accutane


Product name: Roaccutane 10/20


Product name: Accutane / Isotretinoin

Exactly how Accutane works on a cellular level is unknown, but we do know that it affects all of the four ways that acne develops.

  1. It dramatically reduces the size of the skin’s oil glands (35%-58%) and even more dramatically reduces the amount of oil these glands produce (around 80%).
  2. Acne bacteria live in skin oil. Since oil is so dramatically reduced, so is the amount of acne bacteria in the skin.
  3. It also slows down how fast the skin produces skin cells inside the pore, which helps pores from becoming clogged in the first place.
  4. It has anti-inflammatory properties.
Roaccutane also makes pores smaller and reduces scarring of acne. I just picked some side effects so that you can see what it does:

dryness of the lips, mouth, nose and skin. A moisturiser or petroleum jelly can be used to soften the lining of the nose, lips and the skin areas not affected by the acne, nosebleed, tenderness or stiffness in your bones, joints or muscles, tirednes

But here are All the Side Effects in case you want to see them all!

All about Monave!

Monave Cosmetics send me some products, I’ll do a short review on it so you get to know them and their products better. Monave Cosmetics makes mineral make up, all by themselves.

I would recommend their make up to make up beginners or people that just want to look natural without a lot make up. Not really to people that are pretty experienced in make up or people that always wear make up, maybe I would recommend it for ‘the lazy Sundays’.

Honey clay cleanser


– I never got it

Bamboo honey facial polisher


– I never got it

Setting powder: serecite #04

Full size $12,00

Sample Baggie $1,00

Monave setting powders are a silky blend of the lightest minerals with just a touch of clay. Applied after foundation, the powders will aid in oil absorption, as well as add a smooth, matte, “finished” touch to your look. These powders can also be used as “face powders” for women who need very light coverage, used in place of foundation.
Serecite: A translucent powder that aids in oil absorption, for a matte
finish to your makeup.

Recommended brush: flat-top bronzer.

+ prevents make up from creasing

+ a lot product for $12

+ matte finish but a little bit of sheen

– you look ‘white’ on photo’s

– hard to blend

Illuminizer: glisten #401

Full size $12,00

Sample Baggie $1,00

Glisten is the palest of tender pinks. It adds a faint rosy glow, subtle, with a delicate, smooth sheen.

+ don’t need much of it

+ good pigment

+ makes you look like you have a natural flush

– hard to get out of the jar

– is actually darker than on the picure

Blush: mystic rose #216

Full size $13,50

Sample Baggie $1,00

Add glisten and vibrancy to already rosy cheeks, or create the perfect imitation.

+ good pigment

+ makes you look like you have a natural flush

+ easy to blend

is actually darker than on the picture

– you easily apply to much because it’s so pigmented

Monave ‘the company itself’

+ good costumer service

+ all products are self made

+ good information about the products (ingredients)

+ tracking number if they send the products

+ pretty much product for a small price

+ normal to good quality products for good for beginning make up users.

– I got only 3 of the 5 products

– shipping took pretty long compared to other companies

– 2 colors didn’t look like the picture (they where darker)

– normal to bad quality products for more experienced make up users.
