Gift inspiration

Aah Christmas, one of my favorite time of the year! Did you buy all the gifts already? Every year I know Christmas is here, yet I am always late with my shoppings AND with my gift guides. But here it is, for the ones who is doing last minute shopping, a few of my favorite products at the moment to share with you! I manage to arrange some discounts too. Also, I am a sucker for special edition products/packaging. So you will definitely see a few in this list.

Happy shoppings for now!! I will come back this week with a proper Christmas greeting ;)

Charlotte Tilbury lipstick

I am a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury make up!! I use several palettes to BB cream from her collection. There is a special Christmas edition available now and I received two of these colors. The nude and sexy dark red lips are matte and both look stunning on the lips!

Chadelanc booster

My friend from Singapore send me this bottle of antioxidant booster. She swears by this product, so I of course had to try this! It contains vitamin B12 and B5 to bind moisture into skin and help Strengthening skin protection and thus delaying aging process.

Amanda Rijff

Amanda is a lady I admire, especially with her make up, where she is well known for as a make up artist. I got to know her a little bit when we were on a press trip together last year and I can tell you that she really is the sweetest! Both her book and make up palette is a success! In the book you will read about tips and tricks and some (funny) anecdotes. And the palette is one that I use every day!

Make up palette: Inglot

Lush treats

Lush has recently stole my heart. I can’t believe it took me so long to get familiar with this brand. I got a little tour in the flagship store in Amsterdam and I was an instant fan!
I love that every product has a story, but also very conscious about the environment. I still feel like a rooky in this brand, but I can’t wait to explore more the coming time.

It seems like they have a solution for every issue. For instance, to go against the paper waste, they came up with the knot wrap (much more common in Japan), so you can reuse it for another gift!

I can actually talk for hours about Lush, because they are that interesting! Make sure to take a look in the store to explore!! You will definitely see more product testings on the blog in 2018!

Tony Moly Panda

I know Tony Moly from Asia and I am pretty excited that they have entered the European market now! I use the sleeping pack at night, which has a really nice dewy texture on your skin. In the morning I put the cooling eye stick on to fight against the tired sleepy eyes. Plus, how cute is this as a present?!

Cream: Tony Moly
