Review: Everyday make-up products

NYX matte lip cream 4-stars

nyx

Easy to apply, non sticky with a matt finish.The only reason this didn’t get a five star rating from me was that it’s not that long lasting, and it can dry out your lips a little.

BareMinerals powder foundation:3-starsbm
This foundation works with your skin and gives you a natural look, perfect for those lazy days where you only need a light coverage. Doesn’t give you a full coverage and  I have gotten some dry patches when using this is curtain areas.

BareMinerals bronze powder:stars-kopi

This is the best contouring powder I’ve every used and it deserves a five star rating. Easy to apply, you don’t need much product and it has lasted me for years.

Smashbox contour trio:2-stars

I was really exited to try this, but truth be told, smash box disappointed me. The lightest color, which is ment for highlighting, is even darker then my regular foundation. The only good thing is the two different shades of darker contour pens. But then again, they are hard to blend.

L’orèal perfect liner:stars-kopisuperliner

By far the best liner I’ve tried. It has a small tip which makes it easy to apply a nice winged liner and you don’t necessarily need a eyelid primer beforehand cause it will stay in place all day.

BareMinerals complexion rescue4-stars

This is a light coverage BB/CC cream. Like all the other Bare Mineral products, it works with your skin and gives you a really nice glow. The only down side is that you don’t get a lot for you money. It’s quite expensive and doesn’t last more then 4 months.

L’orèal volume mascara4-stars

I’ve always gone back to this mascara after trying several different once over the years. It gives you length and volume, and it doesn’t clump. However it doesn’t give you the perfect curl to your lashes even if you use an eyelash curler.


I hope this review was helpful for up and coming beauty products you want to buy. These are products I’ve mostly used over the last year and they are all my honest opinion.

The winner is definitely BareMinerals bronze powder & I will also go back and buy more of NYX matte lip cream.

Dear sister


When we live in a world
were being ‘ugly’ is a crime
and you gotta be hot to survive
You just have to submit before
the angel of death arrives

You may think it’s ugly
or i doesn’t fit your shoes
but on the day of judgement
this wont’ be any excuse

People may tell you it’s a sign of oppression
and under a man’s command
but it’ll come a day
where everyone will be asked a question
Will you then have the answer in your right hand?

Even though hijab isn’t in style
neither on the first page on a magazine
I promise you’ll smile
because this world lasts only for awhile
and with this smile
you can walk through every mile

So dear sister, do yourself a favor
Start to fight your own Jihaad
and don’t let your last day
be the first day you wear the hijab

Home sweet home

Home at last. I’ve been up since 7 a.m because we were going to leave the house an hour later. One hour become two, and eventually we were on our way to Sweden. Today we planned on buying food for almost the entire family. Which ment a lot of halal meat, capri-sun and as we speak a full fridge. After about five hours we arrived home and I’m finally sitting down on the couch and taking a breather.

Tomorrow is a new week and a chance to start over again. Also a new YouTube video! Hopefully I’l be able to pre-film something as well.

Have a great Sunday!

Review: Everyday make-up

Last week a made a ‘Everyday make-up routine’ video and this week I reviewed the products that I used.

Top 3 favorites:
♥ Loreal True Match – Vanilla 02
♥ Bare Minerals – Warmth
♥ Loreal – Volum Million Lashes

Loreal True Match foundation is one of the foundations I’ve started to love only after using it a moths. It’s easy on the skin, doesn’t clump or dry up and it lasts all day.

Bare Minerals are products I can vouch for and I’ve never been disappointed. Even though it’s more pricy, you get A LOT from the products. A rough and powder foundation you can have up to 1 year!

Loreal Volum Million Lashes is the best mascara I’ve found the last five years. It divides and lengthen your own lashes, it doesn’t clump and it lasts up to 6 months.
