Reviews ~ Finished Products November 2012

'Time for another Finished Products post. Time fly, really. I didn't finish loads of stuff this month, but hey, let's get into it.'

'First items are a cheap every day shampoo, which really didn't work for me. I have naturally greasy hair, and with this shampoo it should be quiker greasy. Normally I wash my hair twice a week but with this shampoo, it became almost every day. Not going to repurchase this one. It was only 0,40. I purchased a bunch of herbal shampoo's allready.
The other finished items are a Kruidvat Body Fruit Bodybutter. I want to try Trekpleisters Superdrug bodybutter first, but this one I want to repurchase in a near future. I love bodybutters, and this Kruidvat one is one of my favs. It was only 2,50, but Kruidvat and Trekpleister raised their prices a bit on these bodybutters. It's now 2,55.
Lastly, two samples from Yves Rocher. First is an Flowerparty Perfume, the other is the BB Cream 6-in-1, which I reviewed <here>.'

'Offcourse, I had to finish a bunch of lippies. First one is an Tisane Lipbalm, which I got once from Karolina. (Youtuber Ohfaciq). I have no idea what the price of this balm is, but one thing's for sure, it's an awesome product. It moisturised my lips very well, and the scent, Oh My Paws....  delish!
The other two items I finished was a Catrice Moisture Lipstick in Soft Coral and a Lippot by Yria, Yves Rocher.  Lipstick and Lippot is discontinued, and I can't remember the price from both. I used both products most of the time over other lipsticks, to give it an nice coral sheen.'

'Last finished item couldn't be a big surprise: Jups, we're talking about the Bella Cotton Pads from the Action for only 0,52. They work, and it's an good bargain for if you're on a budget.'

'That's it.'

1. How many nailpolish do you have at the moment?
'I just counted them. I have at this moment 268.'

2. From which brand do you own the most?
'Without any doubts: Catrice! I have from Catrice 133, including my Limited Editions, and excluding my Tippaint Striper. Wynie Laca De Unas is an nice runner up with 15 bottles, while OPI ends on the 3th place with 11 bottles. A shared 4th place is for Mavala and NYC In A Minute with their 10 bottles.'

3. Which color is most appeared in your nailpolish collection?
'That's an hard one. I have the inclines to buy loads of purples, yellows, and minty colors. If I need to say one, I think it's purple.'

4. Are there any colors or finishes you don't own?
'I think I have most colors and finishes. I do not own a lot of glitters, nude or milky colors.'

5. Which nailpolish do you wear the most?
'I wear loads of Catrice Ultimate Laquers. Most whore color is defenately purple. But I don't know which color I whore the most. I think it's OPI Lincoln Park After Dark.'

6. From which polishes do you think "Why the heck didn't I throw these out earlier..."?
'My Essence ones. Probably I didn't throw these out because the fact that these are limited editions, where I try to find an dupe for. These polishes I didn't count to my entire collection, and never show up on my Pawpolish Collection Page. Hmmm, I think to toss them out now, cause I found an nice dupe for both of them. Essence ones are be able to kill my nails to badly...'


7. Do you use a basecoat?
'Well, duhhh. I try to do anything to keep my nails healthy.'

8. Do you use a topcoat?
'Not always. Depends on the lasting power of the to use brand. When using OPI or Catrice, I only use two coats of the color besides my basecoat. No topcoat.'

9. Stamping or free hand nail art?
'Defenately free hand nail art! I don't have the patient to figure out the best cheap alternative nailpolishes for stamping. I have a cheap, little stamping set, which claims that stamping is quik and easy... yeah, if you know which polishes besides Konad works... Mostly the image don't transfer that well on my stamper. So, basicly I gave the whole stamping party up... I totally like free hand nail art.'

10. Do you like glitters, shimmers, or do you prefer cream finishes?
'Cream finishes. But when the fall comes in, I like to use dark shimmery or metallic ones too. I'm not so fond of glitters, because they don't come off that easily.'

'Oh yeah. I have mostly a feeling that my nails easy damage without. But sometimes I need to air them and let them recover.'

'Not one. I'm very picky lately, and we're on a point of moving out the old house.'


'That's it. Please feel free to do this tag if you're a nailpolish-a-holic too.'

'Pics are taken by myself the past years. Some pics are taken from Google. Thanks to their owners.'

Projects ~ Black Butterflies On My Nails For Our Granddad

'Today it was such an sad day. We buried our granddad in an beautiful forest in Holland. He died past Wednesday. Because of this, I decided to stick on some black butterflies on my nails. I wrote in the past a lyric with the same title: Black Butterflies. This lyric has nothing to do with our granddad, but I though let's share it anyway. Here are my Black Butterflies I worn on our granddad's farewell.'

'Nailpolish is an Limited Edition by Catrice, and is discontinued. The Black Butterflies comes on a small sheet along with two other mini sheets. I bought these stickers from the Action here in Holland. The topcoat I used is discontinued too.'

Collections ~ Lipstick Collection 2012

'I had to update my Lipstick Collection as well. It changed a lot in comparison to my collection in 2011, and like you maybe read about me, I'm very picky about lipsticks. Time to take a look on what I have now.'

'First batch of lipsticks are the Catrice ones. Left you see two Ultimate Shine Lipsticks, and as you maybe noticed, I toss out a lot of  the Ultimate Shines, cause after a while they are going to smell really bad. I don't like the smell of them anyway, but I decided to keep two colors I like to wear on special occasions. The other seven are from the Ultimate Colour line, wich I like more.'
Left to right ~ 
Ultimate Shine: Berry Me! and Stoplight (both discontinued) 
Ultimate Color: Breakfast At Tiffany's (discontinued), Tell Me A Berry Tail, Ginger and Fred, Maroon 20, Pink Me Up, My Red Card, and Princess Peach

'Next I have a few Catrice Limited Editions, which I'm afraid to touch, lol. I'm still on the hunt for some good dupes. Bloody Red is the perfect matte red lipstick for me without drying my lips to bad during the day.'
Left to right ~
Urban Baroque: Marie Antoinette, Elizabeth and Victoria
Revoltaire: Bloody Red

'These lipsticks I have for ages. These are an old line by Catrice as well, and it's discontinued. However, I still love them, they are so soft and creamy. Catrice came out with an Ultimate Shine color in Gentle Nude is back, but nehhh, I don't have inclines to pick it up...'

Gentle Beige, Noisette Coctail, Gentle Nude, Dark Burgundy, Indian Brown, Spicey Coral

'There's not so much changed for my NYX Round Lipstick Collection. Here are the ones I want to wear most, and are easy to wear for me. Favorite color is Black Cherry, but I like Mauve and Taupe too.'

'Now a few newer ones by Barry M and Sleek. I love both brands and I defenately planned to get more colors. Currently I love Sleek in Taupe, it's the perfect lilacy/ brown color.'

Barry M:  Pink Suede and Mulberry

Left to right ~
Limited Editon: Mauve, Tomette and Rose (with back up)
Regular: Orange Hibiscus, Rose Alba and Mauve Pensee

'Here I have also some random lipsticks from Essence, NYC and LA Girl. The Essence ones I bought because of the package which reminds me of MAC. I'm not sure if I like NYC lipsticks, because it smells like crayons. I love the color, but I mix it mostly. I still try to get my hands on more of the LA Colors Cream lipsticks, cause I really love the texture on these.'

'My most recent lipstick find are these by Baolishi. I love the scent, texture, and their color selection. They could be a bit drying, but that's easy solved with lipbalm or gloss. I planned to get more in the future, because they are cheap too. And the package is really cute.'
Left to Right ~
Nr.5, Nr.9 and Nr. 8

'Finally my cheapest brand Max Lips. You can buy them at the Action here in Holland and they have the same sort of package like the LA Colors ones. These are my not so favorite brand I own, but the colors mentioned on the picture at least I want to wear. Purple Pink is an back up, and I'm on the hunt for a color like it, because I really hate the package, which falls really easy into pieces.'

Reviews ~ Baolishi 24 Hour Lipstick in #5

'Not so long ago I purchased a few Baolishi 24 Hour Lipsticks. Now is the time to review one, and my choice is #5 with the green package. If some girls are interested in reviewing the other colors, just comment below.' 

'Nr. 5 is an dark, plummy-reddish fall color, which is perfect for this time of year. The coverage and pigmentation really surprised me.'

Freshly Lipsticked Pout

After One Hour

After Two Hours

After Four Hours, A Few Glasses Of Icetea And Before Dinner

After Six Hours And After Dinner

'Conclusion: The box in the store claimed that the lipstick will stay on for 24 hours, but clearly it doesn't stay on for the 24 hours. As you can see the color fade away after four hours and a few glasses of icetea. If I didn't drink, I'm convinced that it will last me at least six hours, if I take a look at the staining. I do recommend to use a lipbalm before applying this lipstick, (or you can put a gloss on top) cause like you maybe noticed, after two hours my lips seems to be matte and a little drying. However, the lipstick goes on nice and smoothly, not hard or with loads of struggling. Right after five hours and my icetea moment, my lips feel like parchment and not really comfy. So I recommend you to use a (tinted) lipbalm or gloss during the day. (or you re apply a few times) I think the stain power is amazing for the price (1,50). I like this lipstick, but I need to re apply more often to get me through the day. Personally I will purchase more of these lipsticks, cause for the price, color selection, pigmentation and package you can't beat it.'
