Lip Paints by Infallible


Matte or glossy, there is something to find for everyone's desire. Red and nudes appeal to me the most. They also happen to be my favorites from the Lip Paint collection by L’OrĂ©al.

"Red Fiction" and "Gone with the Nude" are my personal highlights. Super glossy, hydrating, and long wearing without being sticky. The pigmentation is also top notch.

The matte range is lacking pigmentation and feels a bit slippery on the lips. The application was a bit tricky. For me, a matte lipstick should have a matte finish. These don't have a matte finish.

Overall, the lacquers are my favorites – both have the same applicator which I love, but I do need to go in the tube at least two times to cover my lips.

The Lip Paints retail for €7,95 (8ml)

Which do you like the most?

Retro Red


Christmas Day Makeup

During the Christmas craziness, I totally forgot to post my holiday make up look. I've kept the look quite simple with a little bit of sparkle and red lipstick to finish it of. With this look you can't go wrong during the holidays. After I had dinner, which was oily, I took off the remaining red lipstick and switched to a nude lipstick.

Face
  • Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer in 1 Linen
  • Bobbi Brown Cabo Coral Pot Rouge (discontinued)
  • Zoeva Last Love Powder Blush
  • Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow (bronzer & highlighter)
  • MAC Cosmetics Dirty Blond Fluid Line (eyebrows)

Eyes
  • Makeup Geek "Afterglow" Pigment (lid)
  • Physicians Formula Nude Eyeshadow Quad (crease & lower lash line)
  • Kat Von D Trooper Liner
  • Ardell Demi Wispies 
  • Revlon Lash Glue (my favorite because of the little brush applicator)
  • Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy Glitter Liner in Midnight (on top of Afterglow pigment)
  • Maybelline Rocket Waterproof Mascara

Lips
  • MAC Cosmetics "Feels So Grand" Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick

Chit Chat #18 a New Year


Happy New Year everyone! May this one be filled with more happiness and joy than the last year. 2016 was a year with a lot of highs and lows. Too many tragedies took place close where to we felt safe. Too many tragedies happen without us even knowing about it. Fear settled in the hearts of a lot of people. We must not let fear take over our way of life. We should stay vigilant, but also remain kind toward each other. Help each other. Respect and love each other.  See each day that we get to live as a gift and don't take it for granted.

On a lighter note I'd like to write about my New Years Resolutions:
  • Work on my fitness
  • Become a better photographer
  • Cook challenging dishes
  • Don't clean the dishes
  • Pick up a musical project that is way overdue
  • Record an album for that special project
  • Fix the house
  • Work on my paper work...
  • Take more walks through the forest
  • Play more Mario Bros.
  • Blog more

A new year is always great to think about a new start. However, I find it important to think of each moment as a new start. If you don't succeed at first, give it another try. Like me and my Eggs Benedict. Poaching eggs is tricky, but I did it! That was one of the first resolutions that I worked on. Messy kitchen – check! I made fresh pizzas with my pizza maker, as well as an even messier kitchen – double check!

We are going to renovate our bath room and toilet in February. I painted a part of the house, cleaned out my closets, donated a lot of clothes, and I didn't clean the dishes (Oliver did). ;)

Let me know about your new year resolutions, the good the bad and the dirty dishes!

Sephora Favorites 'Chic It Easy'

 
One of the great things about Sephora would be their Favorites line. You get amazing value for the money, and you get to try new brands that you would normally never gravitate to.

In my make up closet, you can find many Sephora Favorites boxes. What I normally do is save them to show you guys on the blog, but by the time I want to and can write about them, they have sold out. Luckily for me and for you, Chic It Easy is still available and I think that many of you might  really like this. 

Chic It Easy is an eight-piece beauty sampler set that contains 5 deluxe samples and two full size. The total value of this box is $143 and it retails for only $49!

These items are all you need to create that chic french look. Red lips, red nails, a little bit of eyeliner, tousled hair, and minimal face make up is all you need for that Parisienne look. 

I myself am a huge fan of red lipstick. To be honest, not so much of red nail polish, simply because it doesn't suit my type. I've tried many times, but always take it off, because it doesn't feel like me. So the red nail polish will be given to my mother.

So, what's inside this Chic It Easy box?
  • Caudalie Beauty Elixir (30ml)
  • Atelier Cologne in Orange Sanguine (4ml)
  • Makeup Forever Aqua XL Eye Pencil in Black
  • Nars Lipstick in Jungle Red
  • Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat in No. 2 Luminous Ivory
  • Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20 in Nude (30ml)

Here is the link to the Chic It Easy. This has to be one of the best Sephora Favorites for me along with the Extravagant Eyes.
