Reviews ~ Finished Products February 2013

'Another month gone by ashes, so time for my Finishes Products February 2013. I did a nice job this month I believe, but I wish that I finished some more, with the eyes on our move. So if you don't read a lot the upcoming weeks, I probably moving to our new home. Off course I try to do my best to post at least something during of March. Anyway, I try at least to keep you updated on our move.'

'First thing I finished is my Byphasse Soft Cleansing Milk. I love this stuff so much, it keep my skin soft when I remove my make up. I allready purchased another big bottle just like that, so that would say enough. It's only €2,25 at my Dutch Op=Op Voordeelshop.
The other thing on the pic I finished was my Etos Nailpolish Remover. This is the remover I always purchase, cause it removes all kinds of nailpolishes without any problems. It doesn't leave any white marks on my cuticles like some cheaper removers or acetone free removers does. And the good thing, it's only €0,99.
Last item on the pic is this bottle of Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Limited Edition Apple Delight, which was sold around Christmas. It was only €5 and it isn't available anymore. It smells really nice and wintery, but it's not an typical GlitterKitty Scent.'

'I also finished a basecoat by Max Nail, which is sold at the Dutch Action for €0,49. It does the job, and this is great for when I don't have loads of money to protect my nails from staining.
The other things are an Handgel, also from the Action, which comes in a pack of 3 for €0,89, and an Inecto Coconut Lipbalm, also from the Action for 0,98. The handgel does his job, but is a little too runny. You need to like the scent too. You need to get use to the lipbalm as well, cause it's an very thin consistency, and glides on easily on your upper lip right under your nose, if you aren't be careful. Not sure to keep the lipbalm re purchasing. I only have one back up of this lipbalm left.'

'The a few samples. One Jessica Simpson Dessert perfume in Creamy, which was okay to me, and two Yves Rocher Anti Age Global Creams. I think the creams are more for older girls, so I'm not sure to purchase this by myself.'

'Lastly I finished as usual my go to Cotton Pads from the Action, which are €0,50. I keep purchasing this, because of the price.'

'That's it for this month. Hope it helped a little.'

Projects ~ Lime (And Plum) Eyes with Max 18 Color Palette in Color Me Crazy

'Like I promised, here a look with the lime color from the Max Cosmetics 18 Color Eyeshadow Palette in Color Me Crazy, which I reviewed <here>.  Let's jump on at that lime color.'

'After applying an eyebase, you need to warm up the lime color first with an q-tip, else you don't get much pigment on the brush. Then you can dip your brush in, and start building the color: just dab the color on, don't swipe it. That way you get the best color on the lid.'

'The finished look. I used Wynie ES Palette in #01, color 7, see <here>. Under my brows I used the white from my Sleek Au Naturel Palette, which called Nougat I believe.'

'Reason for me to do an extra post about this, was because of trying one of the colors out on the lid.  As you can tell, you get way more color on the lid when using an q-tip to warm them up, then when you only swipe your finger in the pan.'
Swatched on my hand, row 2. The lime color I used in this post, is color D. Not much pigmentation on my hand, as you can see.
You see, not so much pigmentation for the first row also. My tip: warm them up with an q-tip too, then dip your brush in and build the color by dabbing.
Here's an swatch picture from row 3 again. The best row from this palette, cause you don't need to warm the colors up with an q-tip that much.

One coat
Two coats

Purchases ~A Few Freshly Found Nailpolish Colors by Max Nails (Action)

'Just a quik post to let you know that I found recently some newer nailpolish colors by Max Nails, the cheapest brand from Holland, which is sold at the Action. These nailpolishes contains 7ml, so don't confuse them with the mini's. They are only €0,49 each. However, sometimes, they could be a miss, like the color Turkoois, but some of them are a hit like Real Nude. (which isn't a nude at all, more a purplish mauve) 
Anyway, here are the two colors I purchased, because of the fact that I never seen them before. The color Peach was earlier sold, but then it was more like a hot pink. You can see Peach is Peach now, if you know what I mean. Yellow Glaze is the first yellow in their regular line I've ever seen by Max. 
I will do swatches of them later on, cause right now, we're in the middle of planning a home switch, in other words, we're moving out our house to get a new one. So, I'm a little more busy. Just a little.'

Projects ~ GlitterKitty's Nail Growth January-February 2013

'It's time to show you how my nails are doing. Like you maybe noticed, one of my nails broke on New Years Eve, and since then, I took pics of my nails to keep an Nail Growth Picture Diary with me. So, let's take a look.'
Before one of my nails broke, Christmas 2012 ^
January 1st ^
January 8th ^
January 16th ^
February 4th ^
Februari 10th ^
February 19th ^

'As you maybe notice, my nails can grow really fast. I don't take vitamin/ biotin pills or something like that, I only filed and shaped them, and used Olive Oil for my cuticles during these days. I planned to make more pics, but between January 16th and February 4th, I was very busy with my exam, so I kind of forgot to take a picture between those dates. 
When February started, I tried to file them in my actual shape, which is a little bit rounded and pointed, like on the pic from Christmas 2012 and February 4th. Around February 10th I noticed how odd and weak my nails where, so I gave them a few days between the 10th and the 19th, before I  filed them down. They are at the moment short again, but not that short like January 1st. So, I think to do an Updated Nail Growth Diary again for the upcoming two months or so.'

'Pics are taken by myself at night with my Sony Ericsson Xperia Mobile Phone, so bare with me. I'm sorry for my not so lady like cuticles/ fingers here and there. It was, ehm, an very nerve- racking period for me.' ^_^

Wishlists ~ (Wedding) Dresses from Ebay

'Someone gave me the tip to surf around on Ebay for wedding dresses. I was a little skeptic about that, cause I have my dream dress seen years ago on an Australian Wedding Website, for $2300. That was without shipping our other services. So, my heart jumped when I found the same dress for 350 on Ebay. Omfgh. Now I'm glad I didn't spend my money on a dress yet.'

'So this is my dream wedding dress. She is €350 like I said, and a little more affordable. I also found a matching Girl dress for my daughter for €82. Amazing, omfgh. My color should be Cadbury Purple, by the way.'

'Then, while I was surfing on Ebay, I found a few other nice dresses, and some of them are a bit of a joke. No, I'm not going to get married in one of the upcoming ones, however, I think these are pretty gorgeous...'

'Pics are taken from Ebay, thanks to their owners.'

Collections ~ Eyeshadow Collection 2013

'My last Eyeshadow Collection was a while ago, in 2011. I didn't find the right time to do a new Eyeshadow Collection for 2012, cause I was waiting for different Eyeshadow palettes. So, time for a new Eyeshadow Collection this year. I can tell you, that my collection changed a bit, and grew. Let's get through the brands I have.'

'I'm kicking off with my two biggest palettes. These two are look-a-likes of the Coastal Scents ones, but they don't are from Coastal Scents. I got them both from Hongkong.'
1. 28 Neutrals Palette
2. 88 Matte Pearlescent Palette

'One of my favorite eyeshadow brands is Sleek. I have a nice amount of palettes from them. They are highly pigmented, and very easy to blend. They also stay a nice amount of time on the lids.'
1. Sunset Palette
2. Bad Girl Palette
3. Monaco Palette
4. Au Naturel Palette
5. Bohemian Palette

'I'm also an MUA Eyeshadow lover. I have a few palettes, and loads of singles. Sometimes you need to dig in very good, but overall, I think these are very pretty. The single ones I use more as eyeliners.'
1. Glamour Days Palette
2. Starry Night Palette
3. Poptastic Palette
4. Row 1 Shade 1-2-3-4
5. Row 2 Shade 6-7-8-9

'NYX is also one of my favorite Eyeshadow brands. The only thing is, it isn't sold so much here in Holland, so I always have to get it online.'
1. NYX Trio White/Grey/Black
2. NYX Trio Yellow Pearl/ Antique Gold/ Golden
3. NYX Trio Lake Moss
4. NYX Trio Frosted Flake/ Slate/ Iced Mocha
5. NYX Trio Nude/ Taupe/ Dark Brown
6. NYX 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette Jazz Night
7. NYX Singles Chocolate, Eggplant, Platinum Silver and Rust

1. Palette 01
2. Palette 02
3. From left to right Shade 45-59-70-72-73-75

'Then Catrice, a brand which I don't want to purchase anymore. There was a period that I was obsessed with these, and I actually don't know why. After a while they become very gritty and it seems the pigmentation is dying quikly. I'm slowly run out of this brand. As you can see, I'm not using these as much.'
1. Quatro
2. Duo's 
3. I have four single ES left by Catrices regular line
4. I have three single Limited Edition ES left

'Lastly a few random brands. I have palettes, trio's, singles and small palettes here. The Max Make Up 18 Color Eyeshadow Palette bought I not so long ago, that's why she isn't shot on the same pic beneath.'

1. Kiss Beauty 16 Color Shimmer Palette (review here)
2. W7 10 Out Of 10 Palette
