DSC_0024

Hey guys! I’ve recently been introduced to the make-up brand Younique by my friend Aïcha, a.k.a BardeyliciousHere’s Younique’s legit statement about their brand:

“Younique’s mission is to uplift, empower, validate, and ultimately build self-esteem in women around the world through high-quality products that encourage both inner and outer beauty and spiritual enlightenment while also providing opportunities for personal growth and financial reward.”

Yaaasss what more do we need?

So Bardeylicious gave me Younique’s 3D Fiber Mascara and “Sleek” Lip Stain that I got to try on and review for you guys! But before I go ahead, I’d like to invite you to my very first After Work Make-Up Party that I’m hosting with Bardeylicious this Friday, May 13th! If you’re in Lyon, please stop by and try on a variety of Younique products (mascara, foundation, lip stains…) and eat some yummy baked goods (because honestly what’s a party without food and pink lemonade). You’ll be able to pre-order make-up at the event, and there’s going to be a giveaway! Who knows, maybe you’ll win Younique’s 3D Fiber Mascara and “Sleek” Lip Stain !

Make sure you RSVP to our event!

Younique 3D Mascara

I’ve always had thin and short eyelashes so I’ve been looking for new mascaras to try on. This one, by FAR is the best one I’ve tried: it’s long-lasting, it makes my eyelashes look naturally long and thickens each eyelash with fiber. This fiber looks like cotton until you add a second coat of mascara gel. And then the magic begins:

This is me, without mascara.

And after three steps:
1. A coat of Younique 3D Mascara Gel
2. A coat of Younique 3D Mascara Fiber
3. A second coat of Younique 3D Mascara Gel

The trick is to do each set of eyelashes separately. Start with your right eye: add a first coat of mascara gel, then the mascara fiber, and then a second coat of mascara gel. While your right eye dries, repeat these steps for the left eye.

Younique “Sleek” Lip Stain

I think I have more than 30 types and shades of lipstick in my make-up drawer. I love lipstick so when Bardeylicious gave me Younique’s Lip Stain in “Sleek”, I was excited to try it on. This one is a burgundy-reddish color, and you can choose the amount of pigment you want because it’s like ink.

This is me, with a first coat of Lip Stain.

And then I added about three more layers, because I like my lipstick dark and pigmented.

DSC_0022

This lip stain is paraben-free, waterproof, long-lasting and kiss-proof. I didn’t add that last part, Younique really claims that it’s kiss-proof. Try it on your hand (or like normal people, just drink from a glass) to see if your lip “stains”. Funny how it’s called “lip stain” but doesn’t actually stain anything at all.

WIWTW: How to wear Khaki & White

Hey guys! Welcome to another What I Wore This Week post, where I feature an outfit I wore during the week, the occasion and how I styled it.

Okay fine, I’m obsessed with khaki clothes, and so what? It looks good, It’s cool and goes with any color. You can wear khaki with black, white, pink, camel… literally anything. This is how I styled my khaki-colored t-shirt with white.

DSC_0092

Event: After Work

DSC_0215

I bought this perfect cotton t-shirt at Zara because its khaki color and soft material attracted me. I am very picky about t-shirts which is why I don’t own very many. I like comfy, oversized t-shirts and I like plain color t-shirts. That’s the whole point of a t-shirt, being casual. What I don’t understand is why most brands make women’s t-shirts too tight, too small, too feminine. Women want comfort too, I mean we have boobs!?

Which is why I love this t-shirt so much, because it’s “ungendered”.

Also from Zara, these white pants are going to be a big favorite in my spring wardrobe. They are light and comfy, but the pleats add a sophisticated feel to the pants. I especially like the athletic drawstring detail.

Then I accessorized my outfit with a mini white bag from Zara that can actually store everything and anything (wallet, deodorant spray, hand sanitizer, sunglasses…), it’s incredible! And I also found these comfortable khaki sneakers at Zara, and they are literally my favorite shoes at the moment.

WIWTW: Spring Colors and Bell Bottoms

Hey guys! Welcome to another What I Wore This Week post, where I feature an outfit I wore during the week, the occasion and how I styled it.

Even though it’s been spring time for a month now, the weather was terrible until last week. So I waltzed into Zara and decided to look for something colorful to wear. I’ve been wearing mostly dark and neutral colors since October and I am in need for some color in my wardrobe!

Event: After Work with friends

To add some colorful contrast to the outfit, I chose this yellow & navy crop top from Zara. The design is so cute, and I especially love the little bow at the front. The back of the crop top has a crossover design, creating a sophisticated feel.

Bell bottoms have made such a comeback this season, they make bell bottoms out of everything: mid-length bell bottoms, bell-bottomed shirts, bell bottom jeans, frayed bell bottoms, etc, etc. I’m not a huge fan of bell bottoms that aren’t long and chic, so I chose this white pair of trousers from Zara.

Finally, I slipped on a pair of beige sandal heels (perfect for spring weather) by Glaze, so my bell bottoms wouldn’t drag on the floor. There’s a bit of beige detail on the crop top so the two go perfectly together!

Colourpop, Milani Cosmetics & NYX Lip Swatches

A few weeks ago, I got a bunch of liquid lipsticks from ColourpopMilani Cosmetics, LOC and NYX. I love the new matte lipstick trend, so these are the perfect colors for your spring wardrobe!

Milani Cosmetics

From Left to Right: Milani Amore Matte “Amore” #22, Milani Amore Matte “Devotion” #14, Milani Amore Matte “Covet” #19

Colourpop

From Left to Right: Colourpop Ultra Matte Tulle, Colourpop Ultra Matte Stingraye, Colourpop Ultra Matte LAX, Colourpop Lippie Stix Poppin’

NYX

LUC Trouble

LOC Trouble “Wildest Dreams”

My favorite lipsticks are definitely by Colourpop because their pigment is so bright and colorful. They have other awesome colors like blue, green and purple, but I chose the ones that dupe overpriced Mac lipsticks.

Colourpop LAX – $6

Colourpop Lippie Stix Poppin’ – $5

Colourpop Stingraye – $6

Colourpop Tulle – $6

My next favorites are by Milani Cosmetics because they last all night. Their matte pigment creates a sophisticated look for any outfit.

Milani Amore Ultra Matte “Amore” #22 – $8.99

Milani Amore Ultra Matte “Covet” #19 – $8.99

Milani Amore Ultra Matte “Devotion” #14 – $8.99

I also got these liquid lipsticks from NYX. I personally prefer the darker colors to the brighter ones, because the pinker shades I ordered are actually lipgloss.

NYX Full Throttle Con Artist – $7.00

NYX Butter Gloss Apple Strudel – $5.00

NYX Transylvania – $6.00

This last lipstick was a little sample I got in my February Birchbox. I highly recommend subscribing to Birchbox because you get a little box of beauty products (skin care, spa treatments and make-up) every month, for only $10/month. This time, I got this bright red lipstick by LOC.

LOC Trouble “Wildest Dreams”

Make sure you check out these lovely cosmetic brands, I got most of my references from my favorite Youtuber ItsmyRayeRaye. If you want to learn how to properly apply liquid lipstick, watch her video!

These lipsticks are pretty hard to get in Europe (especially in France), so I found this perfect beauty hack: Maquillalia, a Spanish online beauty store that has most of these American products!

 

WIWTW: Khaki Jumpsuit & Shades

Hey guys! Welcome to another What I Wore This Week post, where I feature an outfit I wore during the week, the occasion and how I styled it.

Three weeks ago, my best friends and boyfriend threw me a surprise dinner at a lovely Moroccan restaurant and then we went clubbing. I did all of this happily and in style, because one of my birthday presents was this beautiful khaki jumpsuit.

DSC_0034

Event: Birthday Dinner & Club

Khaki has been in since Autumn, but I’ve been seeing a lot of khaki/olive clothing in Spring collections recently. I love this color because it counts as a neutral tone.. Khaki is the new “camel” so it’s the perfect color to pair with white, black and even grey. This khaki jumpsuit is from Zara and it’s made of polyester, but feels like suede. The texture is so soft and the jumpsuit itself will be light enough to wear this summer.

DSC_0032

And then there’s the fact that this is a “culotte” jumpsuit, so it’s mid-length. I’ve always been hesitant about culottes because I have lanky legs. Lanky legs don’t usually go with baggy clothes but I was happy to be able to pull this one off!

I chose black accessories because I was going out for the night. If it were daytime, I probably would have worn white or tan accessories to make my outfit brighter. So I wore these black wedge heels from Just Fab, this cute black (velvet and faux leather) clutch from Zara and my favorite sunglasses by Fendi.

DSC_0115

DSC_0139

Also another great birthday present (from my parents), was a bunch of matte lipsticks from ColourpopNYX and Milani Amore. I am obsessed, which is why I plan to do a lipstick swatch blog post very soon! For this outfit, I wore “LAX” by Colourpop. It looks dark in the pictures, but it’s not so dark when you actually wear it!

And finally, my braids were done by Afrohair by Laura, they last long, they’re beautiful and they’re cheap! If you live in France, contact her on Facebook, and she’ll be more than happy to set up an appointment.

WIWTW: Over-sized Denim & Heels

Hey guys! Welcome to another What I Wore This Week post, where I feature an outfit I wore during the week, the occasion and how I styled it.

Last Friday I attended a really cool garage sale at Le Sucre hosted by famous French fashion bloggers MarieandMoodSpirit By CParis GrenobleModeusement VotreEly Gyspet,
Heels on Gasonline and Le Lion dans la Penderie. I got to meet all of them which was pretty cool, and I had an excuse to wear my blue heels again!

Event/Occasion: Bloggers’ Garage Sale
Lipstick: “Diva” by MAC

I got this really cool jacket from American Apparel in size XL because over-sized denim adds edge to chic outfits. It’s also perfect for early spring weather, you know when the wind is bipolar and you have no idea if you should wear a wool coat or a cotton tank top and you’re just like can you decide what you want why are you such a brat.

Then I decided to wear all black underneath so the denim blue colors could really stand out. I wore a black tank top from Forever 21 and a black pair of jeggings from Primark.

DSC_0271

DSC_0282

As for accessories, I chose this huge black hat from Nasty Gal and my geometric blue & black heels from Zara also known as bae. The blue heels went perfectly with the denim, making this outfit’s color palette just incredibly satisfying. Plus, it goes perfectly with the river in the background!

Want my look? Check these out!

Denim Jacket: $125.00 at American Apparel
Tank top: $1.90 at Forever 21
