Reviews ~ Finished Products July 2012

'Time to do my montly finished products. I have not that much, but here it is.'

'I bought allready a new bottle of Etos Nailpolish Remover. This remover doesn't give me white rims on my cuticles, wich I really hate if a remover gives me that. The remover is only 0,98 and last me a while.
I also finished this douchegel from Yves Rocher. It's the one with ylang ylang and I really love this showergel, especially for in summer. It makes me really relax. I paid only 1,50 instead the 3 catalogue price.
Last thing on this pic is a Dove Sheabutter bodymilk, wich I got free. I'm not very fond of bodymilks, cause mostly they are so sticky, and this one defenately is. Maybe it's something for an very cold winter, but for now I won't buy it.'

'Another thing I finished are these Cotton Pads from the Action. I paid only 0,52 for it, and I have nothing to say about them. Just regular cottonpads to take my make up off.'

'Finished another bottle of base and topcoat from the Action. It was only 0,45, and it does the job for the price. The other item are these two nailbuffers, also from the Action. They where only 0,50 for both, but they doesn't anything for my nails. There's no difference between the Fine, Medium, Rough or Polish side. It was not that much money, but I won't repurchase this, cause it's such a bummer.'

'I also finished another Yves Rocher lipbalm, my standard at the moment. Yves Rocher Lipbalms are 2,50, but I got them for 1. The other lipproduct is a Max Lipstick from the Action in Hot Pink. Max Lipsticks are packaged in two for 0,89, so I paid only 0,45 for it. I was a little experimenting with pinks, that's why.'

'Lastly I finished this Our Best Volume Mascara by Catrice, and I'm sad that it's gone. I really liked this mascara because of the dry formula. It gave me enough pop. And as usual, Catrice discontinued it, so sad. It was only 3-4, and I wish I could repurchase this one. Oh well, at least I could try something new.'

Purchases ~ Yves Rocher Summer 2012

'Offcourse I had a couple of reasons to place an order at Yves Rocher again. Most blogs talked about their Limited Editions Les Plaisirs Nature in Coconut-Pineapple and Mango-Passionfruit. So I had to order some stuffies, so let's take a look what I got.'

'I was a little disappointed when the first package came in. I ordered a mini size perfume Les Plaisirs Nature Limited Edition Mango-Passionfruit and a Bath and Showergel fullsize, but the fullsize Bath and Showergel and the mini size perfume in Mango-Passionfruit seems allready to be sold out. Rarely enough I received two mini sizes perfume Les Plaisirs Nature Coconut-Pineapple, while I ordered just one mini perfume and the fullsize Bath and Showergel in Coconut-Pineapple. In the end I don't mind I have two of the mini perfumes, but it was better I got the mini Mango-Passionfruit. So a little note to Yves Rocher: Wait with put such Limited Editions online till our old skool mailing of the month arrive, cause now it slide alongside each other. Ashame, cause now the people who don't want to order online or don't have internet had not any changes to get a populair Limited Edition like this. The Bath And Showergel was around 5, and the mini perfume was 3,50.'

'In the same package I ordered two showergels by Jardins Du Monde in Pomegranate. Can't wait to use this. Catalogue price is 3, I got it for 1,50.'

'Next in the first package two Cream lipsticks. The first is a back up, that's why the wrapper is still on it. It's called Rose. I use this color so much lately. The other color is Mauve Pensee, a rich purply color. Catalogue price is 14,95, I paid 7,45 for one.'

'Because of the disappointment, I decided to place a second order, and thank god I got at least a fullsize of the Les Plaisirs Nature Limited Edition in Mango-Passionfruit. I decided not to purchase the mini Bath and Showergels, cause these are a little overpriced compared to the fullsize ones, and I'm not that desperate. Fullsize perfume was 7,95.'

'I decided to pick up another color of their Cream Lipsticks. This color is for summer, and it's called Orange Hibiscus. Again, I paid only 7,45.'

'Lastly I got a couple of free goodies along my 2nd package. Sometimes you can choose between 3 mini products to try or the present of the month. I got the free present of the month with the first package, wich I forgot to picture. It is a stackable kitchen container set, wich disappeared in my kitchen so soon as I opened that package. Anyway, I choose for my second package for the 3 mini products to try, wich is an Flowerparty Douchegel (smells so fresh and summery), a mini mascara and a eyecream. The other free item was a Eyeliner in Soleil Blue, also an Limited Edition.'

Projects ~ Start Of The Week with a Twist Of Lemon Nails

'A couple of days back, I had a post with Random Purchases. That purchase contains an Catrice Ultimate Laquer Limited Edition Coolibri nailpolish in Twist Of Lemon. Today I painted my nails in that color to kick off the week. Because we have loads of rain past week, (except for the weekend) was I in need to paint my nails in an summery color. So let's get started.'

'If I think of summer, I always start thinking of (summer) fruits too. So I had to stick on some fruity fimo slices on this lemon-y color. I keep it pretty simple, but I wanted something mouthwatering on my nails.'

(Nail Art) Prizes/ Giveaways ~ Prizes from Youtuber LadyNailz aka Wildside Nails + her published book Feyling Duplicity

'A couple of days ago, my prize from Youtuber LadyNailz giveaway arrived. I was very lucky she drawed me out of all her entries. Before I show you the stuffies she send me, I want to draw the attention to LadyNailz other passion: Faery's and vampires. She is so passionated about those creatures that she recently published her first book about faery's and vampires, called Feyling Duplicity, wich you can order <here>. She organized the giveaway because of her new book. If you know me a little, I'm an huge book freak, English or Dutch, it's all fine to me, so this book is on the bookwishlist. And LadyNailz and I are in common, cause I'm doing nail art, but I published also my own book. Just like her. My published book is in Dutch... Now I said that, let's continue with my prizes, shall we?'

'I was happily surprised with the package. First, she send me a note, followed by an amazing nailpolish by OPI called Glim-Merry Gold, wich is like an topcoat and lastly an cuticle oil with green tea. The reason that I was so surprised was because of the fact that she sended me OPI. In the past I won once an China Glaze nailpolish, but never OPI, that's why I'm thrilled.'

Projects ~ A Flowery Comparison With LA Colors 3 Colour Palettes (CherryCulture) And Max Eyeshadow Trio's (Action)

'Yesterday I had an purchase post where I mentioned a Max Eyeshadow Trio wich you can buy in Holland at the Action. Now, I was keep thinking and I came to the next discovery. These Max Eyeshadow Trio's doesn't look at all like the NYX trio's, but they do look like the LA Colors 3 Colour Palettes. So I went back to the Action today, and buy a few more for only 0,75.' 

'Because I don't own any LA Colors 3 Colour Palettes, I googled to the Cherry Culture site, and it seems I am right: LA Colors 3 Colour Palettes are almost the same as the Dutch Max Eyeshadow Trio's. The pans are looking the same, and even a couple of colors have the same name...'

'First a couple of pics from my newest Max Eyeshadow Trio's with some swatches. As you can see, Lotus, Sunflower and Passion Flower are the same as the palettes from LA Colors. Action sells also the black palette as Black Rose instead of Lily, while the Lily color from Max is called at LA Colors Magnolia. Same with Forget-Me-Not from LA Colors, Max called that one Jasmine if I'm not mistaken (The Jasmine one is added to my wishlist, because our Action was running low on these palettes allready. I couldn't find it anyway, else I had picked it up today).'

'Next screenshot proves that the pans and the color range is the same like LA Colors 3 Colour Palettes. Sunflower, Passion Flower and Lotus are the same. I didn't found Peony, Waterlily, Marigold, Dandelion, Iris or a look- a- like of them. The Max Orchid has another colorrange, that palette contains a white, a gold and a pink instead the neutrals you get from LA Colors.'
