    Mooie favorieten, herken zeker een paar terug. Maar staan ook nog een aantal op de wishlist! Welke kleur heb je van de Armani foundation?

    Waauw, wat een hoop producten allemaal! Ik zie zeker enkele producten die ook een dikke favoriet van mijn zijn zoals Huda Beauty en de Kylie Cosmetics lippies. Ook de MAC Fix+ spray is iets wat ik niet kan missen! Je hebt me zeker op het idee gebracht om enkele producten van je lijstje aan te schaffen <3
