Reviews ~ Finished Products August 2013

'Wow, this month goes by so fast. I didn't finish loads this month, cause I was pretty busy. I finished only four products, so let's dive into it.'

'I finished two douchegels by Yves Rocher. Most YR douchegels retails for €3, but I get mine for €1,50. The Retropical I got for only 0,60. I noticed by the Retropical one how much you put on by accident, and therefore, the scent isn't there for long. The other scent is my favorite one, the one with almond.
I also finished a lipstick by Yves Rocher. I paid €7,90 for it, and the catalogue price is €14,95. The color I finished is Orange Hibiscus. Not really my color, that's why I finished it. I paired with another more nudey lipstick.
Lastly finished this month, my cottonpads from the Action. Price is now €0,69. It's my standard kind of cotton pad. And that's everything I have to say about it.'

Random Messages ~ One Month In The Life Of An Freelance Journalist....

'Oh my, this month is almost over... I'm feeling a little bit ashamed. I posted so little here on GlitterKitty's ShoppingHunt, it isn't even funny. But I had a really good reason. I get almost every week a good amount of books, cd's, games and other stuffs for reviewing purposes. And some weeks I got piles and piles of packages...'

'I even had to make a list with the things to receive, and believe me, this list is way longer by now. The picture of the list is taken somewhere at the beginning of August....'

'However, I'm still on track. The only book at this point with a deadline is the Robin Cook Nano one. All the others are books I got for free, or I bought them myself. I still need to read that book by Katherine Howe. I put that book weeks ago away, to read all the wonderfull books I got for my work. Amazing, but sometimes, it could be overwhelming, specially to my family. Cause my nose is almost all the time in a book... I really enjoy my job though and I really look forward to get another pile of packages...'

Purchases ~ Catrice UL : #01 Fuchsiarama, #05 Earnie&Birdy, #33 In The Armee Glow, #44 Mermaid My Day, #45 Kitsch Me If You Can

'Again, I picked here and there a couple of Catrice Ultimate Laquer The next Level polishes during an buy one get one free sale at my local Dutch drugstore Trekpleister.'
#01 Fuchsiarama, #05 Earnie&Birdy,  #33 In The Armee Glow, #44 Mermaid My Day, #45 Kitsch Me If You Can

'You can buy these polishes normally for €2,99 each at Dutch drugstores Trekpleister and Kruidvat. Favorites out of this bunch are Earie&Birdie and In The Armee Glow. After the first layer of Mermaid My Day I was a bit disappointed. Kitsch Me If You Can is more like a glittery topper, wich I like but not for every day. I did these swatches with two layers, and mostly these polishes dry quikly. They stay on, at least on my nails, for 3 days without topcoat.'

Most Awesome Shops ~ Spotted some NYX at a Dutch Douglas

'Not sure if I want to call our Dutch Douglas an awesome shop now, but it's freaking awesome that they sell finally some NYX here in Holland. So I want to say thanks to Douglas who took this huge NYX Nailpolish display in their store...'

'The NYX nailpolishes are €4,95 a piece. I spotted also a few NYX eyeshadowpalettes, but those where randomly placed... Mostly those eyeshadow palettes where tagged for around 10. Hopefully they want to offer also Sinful Colors...'

Purchases ~ Books From The Book Festival In June

'It's been a while back when I purchased two books for €4 a piece at the Book Festival. Reason for not posting this earlier is because of being busy with book reviews in general. Therefore I finished allready reading the book from Douglas Preston & Mario Spezi, The Monster Of Florence. The book by Katherine Howe, The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane do I read at the moment, but it doesn't go fast, cause I got a few books with a deadline and I need to read those for reviews now. My language I read is mostly Dutch. But these books I purchased a while ago, and now I had to share them here.'

Use a sharp scissors to cut them in the right length. The Ribbon Stickers are easy to use and comes in tons of colors. I decorate my make up organization drawers here.

WishLists ~ Emma Jean Scented Nail Paint

I spotted another nailpolish brand, and it's called Emma Jean Scented Nail Paint. I didn't try any scented nailpolishes so far, so if I get ever my hands on these... Sadly enough they couldn't send them out overseas, so I really hope they will in the future.'

Banana Cream Dream

'They are $7 each and Vegan- Cruelty Free. The colors I choose more for the smell off course. Not so much for the colors.'
