Urban Decay Haul + Make-up Look

The return of Urban Decay to the Netherlands has been a huge hit. On the day of return, the Ici Paris XL website was flooded with people who wanted to get their hands on all the latest Urban Decay products. I was one of those people who ordered like a crazed maniac and today, I would like to share what I’ve purchased and also created a look using these products.


MAC Heroine Lipstick & Lip pencil

MAC Heroine has been one of the most unique and bold colours in the MAC Lipstick range. It began as a Limited Edition shade, and was re-released as a permanent shade in March 2014. Not only that, MAC has also released a Heroine Lip Pencil and a Lipglass. Since I’m not so fond of Lipgloss type of products, I only purchased the Heroine Lipstick and Lip Pencil, which I’m going to review for you today.


The Power of Make-up

The extremely talented and beautiful Nikkie from Nikkietutorials has recently posted a video on the power of make-up. In this video, she talks about the “Taboo” of wearing make-up, and shows you how fun make-up can be by showing a half-face transformation using make-up. To follow the footsteps of Nikkie, I’m writing this blogpost to give my opinion on the topic of wearing make-up and the reasons why I wear it.


NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anna

The NARS Audacious Lipsticks are supposed to be one of the best lipsticks around. The formula of these lipsticks is supposed to be creamy and highly pigmented, a complete coverage within one stroke with a long-lasting satin finish. It was the winner of the Temptalia 2015 Readers Choice awards in the categories best lipstick and best new product of 2014. Since I highly value the opinions of Christine and the Temptalia readers, I had to try these lipsticks for myself. There are 40 different shades in total. Since these lipsticks are rather expensive, I’ve had the difficult task before me to only pick one colour. After looking into swatches on the internet, it wasn’t as difficult as I thought because I fell completely in love with one colour named Anna. Of course, I wasn’t the only one who fell in love with the colour. Anna has been notoriously hard to get. It is one of those colours that quickly sells out when in stock. After weeks of waiting, it finally was back in stock and I was able to get one. Since I only have seen swatches on the internet, I was very curious to see how the lipstick was in real life.


Urban Decay Electric Palette

Urban Decay is finally back in the Netherlands! After the leave of the store-in-store Sephora’s inside selected V&D Warehouses, Urban Decay was only available at international webstores. As of today, is available through the Ici Paris XL website and the Ici Paris XL Store and from the 25th of June in the Kalverstraat in Amsterdam. I have been a long fan of this amazing make-up brand because of the outstanding quality of their products. Therefore, I would like to show you one of my most favorite palettes of their brand, the Urban Decay Electric palette.
