Personalized face charts

Hi guys!

I visited xsparkage website today, and she had such a great idea!
Do you know those MAC face charts? You can print it and try different makeup looks on them and write next to it what products you used.
It looks like this:

Well, things get a whole lot more interesting if you could try it on your own face that way, right?
You can! :D
Using a program like photoshop, or visit the website and make your picture into a sketch!
Remove all the things you don't need, like hair etc. in paint.
Next, just add the list for products in a program like microsoft word, and you will have your personal face chart!
Mine looks like this:

I will try it!
I hope you liked it and tell me what you think about it, are you gonna try it as well?

Everyday minerals haul (pictures, swatches) + nonpareilboutique order

Hey everyone!
I just placed my order at, I got a lot of NYX stuff.
Especially lipsticks and lipglosses! =) But more about that later.
I got my everyday minerals order!! =D
I got a lot of nice stuff! I ordered a kit, in which you can pick 6 items.
I also made a video about it, you can check out my youtube account: Cookiiluvur
But now... Picturetime!! ^^
What did I get:

6 items in kit:
* Pressed powder in "Golden Fair"
Check the new packaging! It's so much better! =)
* Blush in "Nick Nack"
Sweet natural pink color.
* Foundation (intensive formula) in "Sunkissed Fair"
I already had this one from last year, but I almost ran out of it.
* Finishing Powder in "Finishing Dust"
I used to use "Silk Dust", but that one is discontinued.. Finishing dust is just as good.
* Concealer in "Pick Me Up Pink"
Love this stuff! You can use it as a primer, or even to get rid of redness. Great if you don't feel like wearing a lot of make-up that day.
* Brush, "Long Handled Kabuki"
I already had one of these, but just got a second one. :) They now have a bamboo handle, which I think, is much nicer than the old wooden handles!
Soft brush: & Cool new packaging:

* Puff Jar

Free sample kit:
* Concealer in "Mint"
* Blush in "Email Me"
* Foundation (intensive) in "Medium"
* Foundation (original glo) in "Medium"
* Foundation (original glo) in "Sunkissed Fair"
I put the foundations in the puff jar. Great for use one the go! =)

Free gifts:
* Eyeshadow in "Bird Bath"
A silver eyeshadow with a tiny hint of blue.
* Eyeshadow in "Mystic Night"
A dark smokey purple color with a bit of silver shimmer.
* Concealer in "Peach"

They now have closable sifter jars, which is great, because the powder won't get all over the place anymore.
Check the pictures:

The new jars are white, and it says what is inside on top! Nice!

88 Shimmer palette!

Hey everyone!
I got my 88 ultra shimmer palette a while ago! You can get this palette at, but I live in Europe, so I got it at . Zoeva is an online store in Germany, they ship really fast, if you live in Europe: check their site out.
I've been wanting this palette for a really long time, but just didn't got it yet. But now I finally have it! I am so happy with my luvly 88 shimmer palette!
My sister got the contour & blush palette, which is lovely too! I will post swatches if she is o.k. with it, but I'll have to ask her first.

Without flash:

With flash: (omg check those amazing colors!)


( I used some too faced shadow insurance as a base, and just applied the colors dry)
Nice shimmer!

GOSH! Look how pigmented the colors are!!!

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this AMAZING (o.k. I think that you get my point.. :p) palette!
You can make some crazy bold looks with these colors, but you could also go for a more natural look, since it also has some brown and natural colors.
I already made an awesome look with this palette, more about that later!
Thank you for your time,
Love, Hannah

Review: The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom puree bodylotion

Hey everyone!
I went to the body shop, and I got a body lotion, and here is the review:

What the website says about it:

Best if you want to: Delight your skin using a lightweight moisturizer that softens, smoothes and hydrates with the whisper of a sensual floral scent.
Best for: normal skin
Notes: Fuji apple, chinese magnolia, osmanthus flower, star jasmine, japanese cherry blossom, japanese persimmon, sandalwood, hinoki wood, fruity musk
How it works:
Japanese cherry blossom extract is traditionally renowned for its soothing properties.
Community Trade organic olive oil effectively smoothes, softens and conditions skin.
My opinion:
First of all, I have to say that it smells delicious! :)
It is a very fresh scent, great for the summer.
I really like that it comes with a pump, that way you won't use too much.
It has a really weird consistency, when you pump, it is a really light lotion, and it has a light pink/white color. But when you spread it out, it becomes clear, and is very watery.
It has a little bit of a cooling effect, it is very fresh.
And just one pump is enough for your entire arm!
It really is a lightweight moisturiser. :)
What I don't like about it is that your hands can feel a bit sticky after using it.
So: A great body lotion to use in the summer. Because it smells so fresh and has a bit of a cooling effect. Great if you are looking for a lightweight bodylotion.

Rate: (10 highest, 1 lowest)

I hope that this was helpful for you! Byebye!

MAC haul!! (fix+ and dainty)

Hey everyone!
I went to the MAC counter, and got some stuff!

In the bag:

What did I got?:

FIX+ and mineralized blush in 'dainty'

Dainty: (closed and opened)

It is such a pretty pink color with a little golden shimmer. What the MAC website says about it:

Light yellow pink with gold pearl

I absolutely adore this color, I think that it might be my favorite blush at the moment! :)


And I also (finally!) got the fix+ spray!

What the MAC website says about it:

An aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi. Adds radiance, finishes makeup. Spray it on. Skin drinks it up!
I love to spray this over my face when I'm done with my make up, to fix it. It also great when you apply your eyeshadow with a little bit of this on your brush. Because of the glycerin that is in it, the color becomes a lot more intense and vibrant.
And I love love love the scent of this stuff! It smells so nice! :)
Well.. that was it for now, ttyl!

My everyday minerals blushes

Hey everyone!

I own four everyday minerals blushes:



1= snuggle
2= jingle bells
3=all smiles
4= nick nack

I think that I like Nick Nack and Snuggle the best, they are both really cute pink colors.
All smiles is a bit more orange/peachy, and jingle bells (a free sample with christmas) is a very shimmery pink/purple.

I really LOVE everyday minerals blushes, they have a lot of colors, shimmer, matte, sheen, etc. I think that there is a great color for everyone! :)

Coastal Scents haul!

Hey everyone!

I got my coastal scents haul. I already own some of their brushes, and I must say: they are great!

What did I got? (from left to right)
- Large paddle face brush ($9,95)
- White angled liner brush ($2,19)
- Oval camoflage brush ($3,49)
- Pink synthetic oval foundation brush ($3,99)

I am really happy with the stuff I got!

Large paddle face brush: This one really is LARGE. I think that that is really cool. You could use it for powder to set your foundation, or even bronzer. One thing that I didn't like about this brush: it isn't very soft, it is a bit harsh for your face. I was a bit dissapointed in that, because I expected much from this one. But overall it is a nice big fluffy powder brush!
White angled liner brush: This is such a great little brush for eyeliner if you want to make a thin line! I used to apply my fluidline with a angled brush, but it was a bit too big, and didn't really work for me. But now I have this one, applying my fluidline is a lot easyer! Great brush!
Oval camouflage brush: This is a great concealer brush. It is synthetic, and I really like how stiff it is. Also a very nice brush.
Pink synthetic oval foundation brush: I have not tried this one with my foundation yet, but it is also great to apply your concealer with. I like to use it with mineral concealer. It is a very soft and awesome brush.

I hop that this was helpful, xoxo Hannah
