Purchases ~ Bargain Alert: Maybelline Lash Stilletto Volume Mascara (Action)

'I'm here with another bargain alert. This time, Maybelline's Lash Stilletto Volume Mascara is available for cheap at the Dutch Action. I know that in the USA Maybelline mascara's are alway cheap, but for Holland, €1,99 for an Maybelline mascara is an real bargain. Normally we paid here around 10 for an Maybelline mascara. In the past I almost always enjoyed Maybelline mascara's, what makes this purchase an no brainer. Sooo... all Dutchies go get you some!'

Random Messages ~ Can We Fix It? Yes We Can!

'Past week we where very busy with working on our new house. You see, we're moving soon. But... our house is yielded totally empty, hull. So we need to lay some nice carpet and paint it there. Before we're going  to carpet and paint, we had to rip off the old wallpaper and sand it very well. Then we let our walls plaster through the pros. Here I have a few pics me ripping off the old wall paper from the wall. After placing the carpet and painting, we are ready to move in... So, if I don't post a lot here on GlitterKitty's ShoppingHunt during this month, it's because of the move.'
I'm not looking really pretty here, but hey, I'm working...;)

'Oh, and between the lines... did I told here all ready that my journalism exam ended up succesfull? Jups, I may call myself an freelance journalist from now on. I am on top of the world, and I can fix anything! New life, here I come...'
My Journalism Certificate... I censored I few things, cause of my privacy ;)

Reviews ~ Max Make Up Mono Eyeshadow and Zebra Print Nail Files (Action)

'Past week I was a lot at my local Dutch Action, cause we needed wall paint and other task items for our new house. I also picked up some €0,49 Nail Files with zebra print, cause my nails are really bad through the stripping powder. I really hate to strip off old wallpaper... but the fifty cent Nail Files are working. I tried one all ready, and I must say, it does the job. Better then their buffing blocks... Action sell more girly prints. For example you can also buy their leopard print nail files. It all depends on your personal taste.'

'I also picked an Max Make Up Mono Eyeshadow for only €0,59. This is the fail of the week, and I don't want to recommend you to buy this. At least not this color. 
These Mono Eyeshadows doesn't have names or numbers, but I picked the purple with an blue undertone. The color looks really gorgeous in the pan, but after the swatch it disappointed me. There's barely pigmentation, especially when I made a swatch on my hand. Hopefully this bad boy does work with an good (white) eyeshadow base. 
I read on another blog about these shadows, and according to the girl who wrote the article these shadows "are very pigmented". She had the more neutral and brown tones, and I figure for some reason, cheap brands like Max always have great neutrals and browns, but the bright colors aren't not so poppy on the lids. They also have an beautiful in the pan looking turquoise, but mi-auww, I don't want to purchase more of these mono's. And I do have enough neutrals and browns, so for those colors I don't need to buy more. We shall see, mostly my curiosity wins.'

Projects ~ On My Nails : Max Nails Nailpolish in Yellow Glaze

'And here's the other Max Nails Nailpolish I recently bought. It's in Yellow Glaze, a nice yellow, perfect for spring and only €0,49 at the Dutch Action. 
As you can tell, the color Yellow Glaze covered my nails okay. On the picture I used only one coat, so that isn't too bad for an cheap yellow. I like it. The coverage of this color isn't better then the Peach color, which I whore <here>. I bet a second coat makes it all nicer, and the polish dried really quikly. Without an topcoat it doesn't stay on that long, so I want to recommend you to use an good topcoat.'

Projects ~ On My Nails : Max Nails Nailpolish in Peach

'Here's another On My Nails Post, this time I painted my nails in an Max Nails, only 0,49 Polish. You can buy these polishes at the Dutch Action, which sells beside beauty related products, like kitchen supplies, stationery, underwear, and loads more nice priced stuffies. 
The color of this polish is Peach. Max released this color in the past as an more pinky color, so Max improved this color for loads. It's an peach color, not an pink, you know. On the pics, I used only one coat, so the coverage on this polish is pretty good. As you might know, some Max Colors are a hit or sometimes a miss. This one is a hit for sure.'

Projects ~ Looks With the 88 Matte Pearlescent ES Palette: Blue Breezes Over Seas

'Time to do another look with the 88 Matte Pearlescent ES Palette from T-Mart. You can read my review <here>. This time I created a blue eye look, which I called Blue Breezes Over Seas. Hope this is helpful to you all.'

'Color D7 wasn't easy to get on my lid. I really had to dab it on to build the color. Same for color G7, I really had to dab it on. Off course I used my eyeshadowbase first. It's better to use an white base underneath these blues. My brow bone color is A11, and it gave me an nice hint of white. I used color H7 more like an liner, which worked really well. Overall, I think with an white eyeshadowbase, everything would come out more. These pics doesn't these colors any justice anyway. In real life it pops a bit better without the white base, but you don't need to expect that it would last that long.'
