I’ve actually been really good and haven’t been buying too much make-up lately. I really don’t need any more make-up as I have loads already but every now and then I do treat myself.
My latest make-up purchase was this Sephora holiday eyeshadow set that I bought in the sales. There are 4 eye look books: the smokey eye, the nude eye, the party eye and the metallic eye.
My favorite so far is the Metallic eye look book because I love wearing gold eyeshadow with some darker shadow in the crease to compliment my ever present cat eye liner. I also like the Nude eye book. In my opinion, you can never go wrong with a nude eye palette.
I haven’t tried the Party eye look book yet but I’m intrigued. I have green eyes and I’ve been told to wear purple eye shadow to emphasize the greenness of my eyes, but it’s not a look I would usually go for (I swear by the cat eye. It’s just so simple to do and there are so many possibilities!)
All-in-all I’m happy with this purchase. I wouldn’t have paid full price for it but in the sales I think it was a really good buy. I’ll definitely be using these products so that’s good!
Hey guys, today I want to share some recent make-up purchases that I’ve bought these past two months. Some of the items were bought in New York and others were bought here in Prague.
1. Bon Voyage Set
This holiday make-up set from Tarte was honestly one of my favorite purchases from New York. The set contains a palette of 20 eyeshadows, a gorgeous lip tint (love it!), a lip gloss, a miniature cheek stain, mascara, a small amount of finishing powder and some maracuja oil. It also contains a make-up bag. Anyways, I bought the set for the eye shadows, which are great, so I could not be happier with it.
2. more eye shadows
I had been dying to try out the new-ish Urban Decay eyeshadow palette called Electric. I have the Naked palettes (the Naked basics palette, the Naked 2 palette and also the Naked 3 palette = what can I say? I’m a fan.) but when I saw a video on Pixiwoo of Sam doing a tutorial using the Electric palette, I knew I had to have it. I bought it in Sephora in New York (I am so jealous, the Sephoras in the Czech Republic don’t have Urban Decay products), where I also bought the Tarte holiday set. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed that I wasn’t given any samples even though I spent quite a lot of money there. That’s the one thing that’s better here, at least I always get a sample or two. Also when I got to the hotel and opened this palette, one of the eye shadows was cracked so there was a bit of product spillage and I was a bit sad due to it, but then I thought – I’m being ridiculous – and was right back to my normal happy self. But back to this palette, I love it.

On Saturday M and I went to visit the Prague Zoo. I got to see some of my favorite animals and wear a cute outfit, so I was a happy girl. I went in comfy Melissa flats because a)there was a lot of walking involved and b)it was threatening to rain (and it did in fact rain while we were having lunch). The shoes in question are Melissa Doris Spike t-bar flats in red. I really like these shoes. I’m a sucker for red shoes in general but I also absolutely love studs on shoes, so of course I love these shoes. Plus they are also really comfy!

Most bloggers do a weekend wishlist but I find it best to fantasize about future buys on Mondays. Mainly because I dislike Mondays so anything that can make them more tolerable, I’m up for it. Anyways, on to the good stuff. Continue reading Monday Wishlist
Just a quick little post today. Yesterday I had one of my exams, it was a written one so I don’t know how it went, but it wasn’t the pleasantest of days. I had a bit of a fever the day before and kind of just felt like crap, that’s never a good thing. Plus with nerves, well, let’s just say there have been better days. As a little lift, I stopped by Topshop and had a look-see. I couldn’t afford to buy any clothes (though I did spy this gorgeous black and white gingham skirt, swoon) but I did buy this pretty lippy that I have been thinking about buying on and off for about half a year now. I always talked myself out of it thinking that I don’t need another lipstick. But now I’m so happy that I did buy it and that I do have it, yay!

On most days I go for the “no make-up” make-up look: just a bit of foundation or bb cream, a light dusting of shimmery powder and a little bit of eye shadow (with which I either help add a bit of sparkle to my eyes or I use a bit of medium brown shadow to define my eyebrows). If I’m feeling a bit more adventurous (e.g. less lazy) I do a cat eye using liquid or gel eyeliner for my eyes (I actually only use mascara at night, because that’s way too much effort for a daytime look, haha). I love that there are so many ways to wear a cat eye:
