This time I integrated some video clips. However, they are a little bit blurry. My camera didn't focus.

NYX Champagne & Caviar


Now I want to show you the second NYX palette I bought. It is called Champagne & Caviar. There are some pretty colours in it, mostly brown, both matte and sparkly. Nice for everyday use.

Here is what it looks like:

And here are some swatches. Remember, I used the Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk as a base in the upper part and in the lower part I used nothing as a base.

First row:

Second row:

This palette I really great for everday use. It can also be used for a really nice brown smokey eye.

The palette costs less than 10 €. Nice quality.

NYX Mysterious Brown Eyes

Hey everybody!

Today I want to show you some swatches of the NYX Mysterious Brown Eyes palette.

First off, here is what the palette looks like.

When I made the swatches I used the Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk as a base.  The upper part is with the base, the lower part is applied directly on the skin. I think you can see the difference quite well.

Here are the swatches of the first row in the palette:

The second row:

The pigmentation is quite good, however, I feel it makes a huge difference if you apply the shadows with a brush or your finger. With your finger, the colours look much stronger and intense.

The palette was about 10 €. A really good price for ten eye shadows.

Have you used this palette? What do you think of it? Let me know in the comments below.

ANNY nailpolishes

Hey guys,

here are the promised swatches of the ANNY set I bought. The set is called "Blue Ocean - Miami Beach". It was 9,95 €. You get 3 travel sized nailpolishes. If bought seperately one would cost 4,95 €.

These are the colors you get:

From left to right: 585 ANNY in the sky, 589 ocean in a bottle, 593 blue diamond

Here is 585 ANNY in the sky on my nails:

You have to use at least 2 coats, as the colour is not very well covering. I used 2 coats in this pictures and you can still see my nails through it. However, the colour is really pretty. A sparkly light blue.

This is the 589 ocean in a bottle polish:

I also used 2 coats. Really pretty metallic medium blue. No sparkles this time.

Last but not least the colour 593 blue diamond:

I haven't used this one on my nails completey. Only to make some accents on my nails. I used tape to create these straight lines. The light blue is 585 ANNY in the sky.

One last thing:

I took this picture to show you the difference between the normal and travel sizes. 15 ml (0,50 fl. oz) vs. 6 ml (0,20 fl. oz).

Douglas Haul

Hey everybody!

I ordered some things online. It was the first time I ordered stuff from douglas.de. Probably the last time, since customer service is crap...

Here is what I got:

This palette by NYX is especially for brown eyes. It is called "Mysterious Brown Eyes".

The second palette is from The Runway Collection and is called "Champagne & Caviar".

I heard so much about the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, I just had to give it a try...

As I am a nailpolish addict, I couldn't resist. 3 ANNY nailpolishes in travelsize.

In the next days I will upload some swatches of the different products, so make sure to come back and check them out.
