Reviews ~ Finished Products July 2013

'This month passed by like crazy, what means Finished Products time. I'd finished not so much for my vision, but I tried to used up a good amount.'

'This month I used up my City Curls mascara by NYC, and was around €1,99, but I got this in an buy one get one free sale. I liked the mascara, allthough it only made my lashes more black then curly. Not sure if I want to repurchase it.
Also finished my Max Basecoat with calcium which was €0,69. Now, the calcium isn't the reason why I bought it, cause real Nail Artists never believe in that calcium would make your nails stronger. If this base contained keratin, I think I really had to stock up that badly. However, basecoat wise, it protects my nails from staining, so for that price it served the purposes of why I bought this. And because it is so cheap I want to repurchase this one for sure at my Dutch Action.
Also finished two samples. First one is an Garnier Hair Tonic thinghy, which smelled really good. The other sample was an Yves Rocher Neroli Perfume. Not sure I liked it to be honest. I'm not a real Yves Rocher perfume lover. I only liked their Evidence perfume so far.'

'I finished also one of my free Kneipp Shower Cream Fig Milk and Argan Oil, which I reviewed <here>.
Last item I finished is one of my Coconut Care Lipbalms wich I also got from the Action. For two you pay €0,69 and they are really good. It's an awesome product for summer, cause it's not so thick. And it smells really nice too. It was alo one of my Bargain Alerts this month, see <here>.'

Projects ~ On My Nails : Spiced Up Nails with Black To The Routes By Catrice Ultimate Laquers

'Today I have another On My Nails post, and this time I used Catrice Ultimate Laquer #39 Black To The Routes. Because I didn't want it too black so in the middle of summer, I used an glittery copper striper. In real life it looks way better offcourse.'

'Black To The Routes became my favorite black nailpolish ever. On the pic I have only one coat on, so the coverage is really good. It dries really quik too. I think I will wear this color loads more around Halloween, but I like sometimes in summer (and al seasons exally) to wear alternate colors, so sometimes I like to go for something dark this time of year. Catrice Ultimate Laquers The Next Level are €2,99 each and available at Dutch drugstores Kruidvat and Trekpleister.'

Purchases ~ My Little Yves Rocher Order From July

'I couldn't help myself, and had to order something from Yves Rocher. Mainly because of their Monoi De Tahiti Dry Oil, but that one was out of stock, so I only got the Monoi De Tahiti BodyShampoo. I also ordered a Retropical Showergel, cause it was on sale. But the biggest reason to order was because my love needed an deodorant, wich isn't pictured.'

- Retropical Showergel €0,90 (sale)

Reviews ~ Kneipp Shower Cream Fig Milk And Argan Oil (Shower Creme Vijgenmelk en Argan Olie)

'By surprise, Kneipp sended me a few (they send me five, but I gave allready two away to a good friend of mine, so on the pic there are only 3) mini bottles of their newest Shower Cream with fig milk and argan oil. If you don't know anything about Kneipp: Kneipp is a company wich makes loads of herb kinda cosmetics. They have shower creams and gels, foot care products, and they also have teas.'

'I do love the send of this newest Kneipp creation. It's so relaxing and fresh. The product makes a nice amount of foam. The product is soft an hydrating, and extra nourishing. If you need some new relaxing products, I really recommend Kneipp products. If you are from Holland, you can "order" a free sample set yourself on Facebook to review.'

Random Messages ~ RIP Talia Joy From Youtube

'Maybe it looks a little rude if I post this under my random messages, and I'm really sorry if it is so, but I have to put it up somewhere. If you watch beauty related video's on Youtube, you also heard about Youtuber taliajoy18, a young girl and sadly diagnosed with cancer. However, she was a very positive girl. 
I think the world is in shock now, because Talia earned her angel wings on July 16, 11.22 AM. I watched one of her last video's, and the girl who did the 20 tag with her said, very convining, that Talia should be the next survivor. My heart shattered on the floor when I heard that...
RIP Talia, I'm sure the beauty community on Youtube will miss her loads. And not only Youtubers, also her loving family, wich I want to wish all the strenght in the world to get through this lost.'

'I had to post this because the fact that I lost my older brother at an very young age. He had cell cancer, and he was six when he died. (I was four) Talia reminded me a lot of my brother, he was also always laughing, even when he was in pain.'

'I hope Talia will meet my brother in heaven...because she touched my heart.'

'I don't own Talia's picture here, so thanks to the owner.'

Purchases ~ Nailpolish By Ingrid Cosmetics #402 (Dark Violet)

'A little while back I purchased my first Nailpolish By Ingrid Polish, wich you can read about <here>. I walked by the Op=Op Voordeelshop The Netherlands again, this time for purchasing 3 more colors. Sadly for me, this time the nailpolish shelf with the Ingrid polishes was a mess: bottles leaked, some of them had little bursts in their caps, or the actual colors I came for was sold out allready. I can't blame them, for €1,25 each, or 3 for 3 it's a nice bargain. But for me, I decided to pick up just one more, instead the 3 I planned.'

'The color I picked was #402, in real life an Dark Violet, here on the pics more a dark blue. I used only one coat here, but I bet with two layers every color stands out more, right? For the price I can't complain: polish dries quikly, the consistency isn't streaky or gloppy. Still like these polishes, but I really wish Op=Op updated their Ingrid nailpolish shelf...'

Reviews ~ GlitterKitty Reviewed Alessandro Nail Spa For Meidenblog

'Being an journalist (always in training) has it's advantages. This time I got two products from Alessandro, the brand who sells awesome nailpolishes, and yes, I also own a few of these nailpolishes. I can do an On my Nails Post with them soon, if you girls are interested. 
First continue with their newest products: Nail Spa. Here in Holland you can buy the new Alessandro Nail Spa at Douglas. I was so lucky they send me their Mango Nail Serum, (19,95) and their Nail Repair Cream, which is known as their Nail Grow Cream. (19,95) The actual Dutch review for Meidenblog can be read <here>. Offcourse I decided to make a video, which you can find on my <Youtube>. And GlitterKitty's ShoppingHunt wasn't a shoppinghunt without an Alessandro Nail Spa Post, so here are my thoughts about these products in English.'

'First a few pics before I start using these products, and how they look like. The products I got are for all nail types, if you can tell. I have brittle nails at the moment, with really worse nail tips, and maybe my loyal readers did notice that. So these products are perfect to try out.'
Before using Nail Spa

'Time for a few pics taken after 7 days of use. Every night before I go to bed, I rubbed in the Nail Repair Cream. I used several times a day a few drops of the Mango Nail Serum.'
After using Nail Spa for 7 days
'I noticed that my nail tips became better, and my cuticles are looking better also. The cream increases the elasticity like the directions claims, and soaks quikly into your nails and skin. Also like the directions says, the oil did made my nails grow quikly. The Repair Cream contains roses, and the Mango Nail Serum contains royal jelly, lavender, and hyaluronan, wich prevents skin tissue around the cuticles. I can honestly say that this product is worth your savings.'

WishLists ~ Beauty At

Reason for this wishlist is to show you a few things they have, and showing some Essie Polishes. And sometimes if you buy 3 polishes you only need to pay for two. So, if I purchase Essie with that discount, I will safe €10,49. Not bad.'

'Here are some Essie Polishes I like. Those are €10,49 each.'
Merino Cool
Mink Muffs
Sew Psyched
Smokin Hot
Island Hopping

'I also found a few Revlon Lipsticks. Revlon Lippies are €9,99 and up, so it's expensive, but you will find colors there, you can't easily find here in Holland.'

Revlon Lipstick Vava Violet - €9,99

Purchases ~ An Creative Find At The 1001 Voordeelshop

'Today was an hot day, and what did I do? I walked by at the Dutch 1001 Voordeelshop. And that should be time, cause it seems to be a while I was there. This time I picked up something creative: beads. You have an good amount of all kinds of beads there, for only €1 a box. The only thing I wish I could find there, are some clasps and little rings, but I couldn't find them there. Oh well. Let's try to string these first.'

Purchases ~ Bargain Alert : Coconut Care Lipbalms (Action)

'If there's one shop here in Holland where I came a lot, then it is the Action. I know, I keep telling it in almost every post about the Action: it's an store which sells cheap beauty related things, stationery, kitchen stuffs and so much more.'

'Somewhere in June I came across the beauty shelfs, and I picked up these lipbalms by Coconut Care. They are only €0,69 for two. Yes, two lipbalms for less then 1. I like these balms so far, they are way better then the Max Lipbalms, also from the Action. (the ones with the blue caps) I find these pleasant to apply, and I think these are perfect for summer. Soon in one of my Finished Products posts.' ^_^

Purchases ~ Catrice UL : 08 Goldbusters, 14 Purple Reign, 28 You Better Think Pink, 37 The Effect Maker, 39 Black To The Routes

'It's time for the last round of Catrice Ultimate Laquers The Next Level. Like I said, I don't want to get too much nuts and buy the whole bunch. Maybe I'll pick up a few more later, cause they added allready five more colors for fall in their regular line. More about these newer colors later on. I bought the colors from this bunch during an Nail Festival at the Dutch drugstoreTrekpleister and/ or Kruidvat. It was buy one get one free. These polishes are 2,99 each without discounts.'
08 Goldbusters, 14 Purple Reign, 28 You Better Think Pink, 37 The Effect Maker, 39 Black To The Routes

'I didn't make swatches on my natural nails, cause at the moment I'm testing some other cool stuff, so my nails needed as much as possible, unharmed. As always, the consistency of these polishes may vary. Some of them have an great coverage, some are more like an nail topper, you know, a color you add on top of another. They dry very well. On the pics I used two coats. Favorites out of these bunch are The Effect Maker, which I tried allready on natural nails and is so pretty, Purple Reign, which can be used as the color on my wedding and in real life more purple then on the pic, and surprisely also Black To The Routes, and gorgeous and standard deep black. I'm not so fond of pink, but I want to recommend You Better Think Pink to Pink lovers also.'
