Highlighter idea for the belgian/dutch ladies!

A while ago I was invited to attend a Mylene demonstation. It's basically a home shopping party concept that sells skincare, cosmetics, bath products and so on. I considered these kinds of things for housewifes in their midlife crisis so I was not really looking forward to it, but I went anyways to do my friend a favor. We were lucky to have a cool host, so it ended up being more fun than expected, although I wasn't impressed by most of the range.

I am not going to make this a Mylene-bashing post, so I'll move on to something positive: I was pleasantly surprised by this cute eyeshadow. So if you (or your mom) are going to a Mylene demonstation any time soon, check this out :)

Guerlain Vega Rouge automatique lipstick

When it comes to make-up I am not easily impressed by luxurious packaging. I want the actual make-up to impress me, and an overly fancy exterior only seems like a waste of money to me (and everything gets scratched when I carry it with me anyways). This all put aside, I had a gift voucher to spend and I NEEDED another red lipstick. After a huge swatchfest, I found this gorgeous shade of deep raspberry red.

Read on for more pictures and my review!

Essence Blue Addict

Today I'm wearing another one of Essence's lovely glitter polishes!

Blue Addicted is a bunch of tiny blue and big green and light blue hexagon glitters, in an intense blue jelly base. The fun thing about nailpolish like this is that you create a lot of depth by adding multiple layers. You can see the glitter floating in the semi-transparent jelly, I think it has a magical feel to it!

Wip-hairport, a huge source of hair inspiration!

While patiently growing out my fried hair and looking for a new hairstyle, I thought I'd share my favorite source of hair inspiration with you guys: Wip-hairport :)

Wip-hairport is a Lisbon-based hair salon that does the coolest haircuts I've ever seen.
I like their funky daring cuts and amazing color jobs, but I also love that they are able to work with curly hair.

There's a big set of male haircuts too, going from very masculine and rough, to cute boyish cuts or this stylish sort of mullet.

I am hoping to visit them soon and give them carte blache on my hair :)

Where do you turn to when you want a new hairstyle?
