(Christmas) Goodies

photo (1)

I got sooo many great gifts for Christmas, I really got spoiled!! I think it’s one of the most fun things to find the perfect gifts to my loved ones and already start “planning” gifts medio October! You will never find me during the last weekend before Christmas buying gifts, I hate crowds and I hate the feeling of stress.. But anyways, here are some (yeah not even all, I got so many nice things from my loved ones!) of the things I got and bought during the Christmas period!

Mac Cosmetics brushes always make me a happy gawl!! I kinda wanna have all of their brushes // The Mason Pearson brush has been on my wish list for literally YEARS! // How awesome is this make-up beautycase by Make Up Studio?! // I bought these Sorel boots myself, haha they are ugly as hell, BUT in snowy Copenhagen they are perfect

I also got some Line & Jo goodies, how cute is their packaging! // While shopping in Rotterdam, I of course visited Lush! Every year they have a Lush Legends box, with all their best-sold products, it is one of those “have-always-wanted-never-dared-to-buy things”, but when the boyfriend saw it was with a 50% discount, he surprised me with it <3

I am and always will be a Nike girl // One of my friends remembered that I missed having board games, so she surprised me with Monopoly! // The ring is by Line & Jo, I love how petite it is, since my hands are like claws it nicely compensate for that.

MAKE UP FOR EVER – Aqua Rouge

I found my new holy grail! MAKE UP FOR EVER released their latest addition to the AQUA range: AQUA ROUGE and it is awesome! It’s a liquid lipstick that is applied in two steps: an intense and vibrant color and a gloss coating, which results in an incredibly long-wearing lipstick.

Step 1: The liquid lipstick melts onto the lips and leaves intense, extremely high-coverage and matte color.
Step 2: The top coat delivers a vinyl finish and acts like a shield that protects the color. It also provides the lips with a feeling of comfort.


Doesn’t it looks like I have a lazy eye on this picture?!

Okay, so I got this one yesterday and oh my, it sure it long-wearing, think: lunch, 2L of water, some kisses and even a bit of Crossfit! I got the nr 9, which is somewhere between red and bordeaux in and I love it! The problem with lipstick for me is often, that I already glides of my face the moment I leave my apartment. But this definitely sticks around for a bit, without any touch-ups!

Excuse my iPhone for the crappy quality, but I just wanted to show you guys how long-wear this is! I made this picture 8 hours after applying the AQUA ROUGE and that’s a pretty solid achievement in my opinion! So guys, if you’re searching for a Christmas gift for your girlfriend and you’re fed-up with kissing of her lipstick (or worse: end up with glitters on your face…), this is definitely a recommendation!!!

New In: NARS

I have been lurking NARS’ Orgasm for years, even swatched it sometimes when I was abroad, but never actually bought it. It has a light golden shimmer in it and I actually hate everything glittery on my cheeks. But since the entire blogosphere seems to go bananas about this blush since the history of internet, I decided to give it a try when I had the opportunity. So when my sister and my brother-from-another-mother went to London for some days I asked them to buy it together with the bronzer Laguna.

I’m not sure what it is, but receiving or buying new make-up is honestly one of the most enchanting moments in life.. The sight that untouched piece of heaven, YUM! So these two products have been hyped till the fullest and you always risk the chance of totally getting disappointed. And to be fair, the first time I used it (in the middle of the night, getting ready to go out) I actually got a bit disappointed, Orgasm didn’t really got picked up by my brush and Laguna seemed to be to light… Often after an experience like that, my make-up mistakes just end up in my drawer. But luckily I gave them another shot the day after and I actually liked them pretty good in daylight usage!

Orgasm is an easy every day blush: it blends easy and it has the right amount of pigmentation, it is a peachy pink colour with gold shimmers – which luckily are not overwhelming. It tends to stain a little bit easier than my Sensai holy grail, but it still keeps it place pretty much all day. Laguna is a matt bronzer which is perfect for contouring and just give your face that pinch of life back that you lost after sleeping 12 hours.. Bronzers for me often tend to be a pitfall: it either brings back that “umph” or it just looks like I rolled in mud.. Laguna is luckily rather easy to blend and releases the right amount of pigmentation to build up with (better save than sorry is definitely my motto with bronzer), so you can’t really do that much wrong! I love the fact that there is no awkward brush somewhere hidden in the package, NARS just made it into the most efficient flat packaging and honestly who uses the brushes that comes with make-up?!

Sephora in Copenhagen II: New Store Opening 26 September (Field’s Shoppingcenter)

I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned this yet, but on the 26th of September is Sephora opening their 2nd location in Denmark! After their succesful opening of their shop-in-shop inside of Illum, their 2nd shop will open inside Field’s Shoppingcenterr.

I’m not a big fan (actually not at all) of shopping center’s in Europe, in general I find them depressing and more a hang-out for teenagers with a curfew but the fact that Sephora is opening there definitely makes it tripworthy for me! And who knows, the biggest mall in Scandinavia might even become a new hot-spot for me! Field’s Shoppingcenter is located 10 minutes from Kongens Nytorv (city center) and all y’all have to do is take the metro towards Vestamager and get off at ├śrestad station, which is right by Field’s main entrance.

The new shop will be 300 m2 and will sell brands like Make Up For Ever, Benefit, Dr. Brandt Skincare, Nails Inc., and Sampar. Can I hear a WHOOP WHOOP for that?! I’m really anticipating for the moment when new brand will be released to the Scandinavian market such as Too Faced, Urban Decay and Cargo..

Will you go to the opening?

With love,

New In: Sensai Cheek Blush

So a couple of weeks ago, I wrote how I hit pan on my favorite blush. So after weeks of looking at it’s beauty in full glory at Sephora and doubting whether or not to buy it (since it was 40 euro/200 dkk), I finally rebought it again when I was in the Netherlands.

Sensai’s Cheek Blush (CH05 SOHI) honestly has been one of my holy grails for years. It has just the perfect level of pigmentation, it doesn’t move during the day and most important to me it doesn’t stripes or stains. Especially in the Summer, when my skin tends to be a bit more oily I find it important that a sudden kiss by the boyfriend (which are more than welcome) doesn’t leaves a “hole” in my blushed cheek. So with buying this blush, I didn’t only make myself happy – I made the boyfriend happy (this is as much of an argument as saying “it is an investment in myself”).
