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!
