KAT VON D HAUL + FIRST IMPRESSIONS

5 February 2017

Good afternoon my lovebirds,

I hope you're all doing very well on this Sunday afternoon.

You might - or not - remember that I've wanted to try Kat Von D's products since I started my blog. - Oh boy, how long it's been! Thus, I have something exciting to announce... I FINALLY MANAGED TO GET MY HANDS ON SOME KAT VON D PRODUCTS! YAAAYYYYYYYYYY! I feel like this haul won't be the only Kat Von D haul...

The famous brand finally arrived in France. As soon as it was out in my local Sephora, I couldn't resist. I might have gone a bit crazy... - I mean, did I really need 3 new lipsticks? I almost picked up the concealer as well but I'm trying to finish the one I already own first. - I know, I was as surprised by myself as you're right now. So out of character...

I purchased three Everlasting liquid lipstick :
from left to right: exorcism - lolita - double dare.


My opinion : I'm a big fan of the formula. It doesn't dry too quickly. It's easy to apply. - And oh boy, I'm terrible at applying lipstick. The only thing I feel is a shame are the lack of colours of the whole everlasting liquid lipsticks range. In my point of view, there are a lot of shades that are similar to what I already own. There is only 3 shades of lipsticks that I liked. AND YES, I GOT ALL THREE! #noselfcontrol I've put all three lipsticks to the test. They last pretty well on my lips. I only have to reapply it after lunch and boy, I drink way too many teas before lunch... The darkest shade : Exorcism ended up being my favourite. Even if, Lolita comes pretty close. Double dare goes with almost every makeup I can wear. My lips aren't too dried out after wearing it for a whole day. However, those lipsticks aren't easy to remove... Nonetheless, it's nothing a good Lush lipscrub cannot fix!

Do I recommend this product ? 100% yes! If you fancy yourself a brand new liquid lipstick and fall in love with one of the Everlasting liquid shades, then GOOOO GIRL!

4.5 ✰


BONUS POINT FOR THE SWATCH, AM I RIGHT? NO? MEOOOOWWW TO YOU TOO, LOVEBIRDS. =^.^= 🐱

Born This Way Concealer { review }

26 January 2017

Hey lovebirds! I hope all is well. I wanted this week's blog to be a review so here is my review of Too faced's, Born This Way concealer in very fair. I've fell in and out of love with this one. I guess every love story must come to an end. Some people just don't get happy endings. Maybe, I simply wasn't born this way at all... I'll now let you read all my deep thoughts and the tale of Serenbird & her born this way concealer.

Brand description :
Instantly hide imperfections, vanish the appearance of dark circles, and blur the look of lines and wrinkles for complete coverage so undetectable, they’ll think you were Born This Way.

After using Born This Way Concealer:
100% said it showed IMPROVEMENT IN SKIN MOISTURE LEVELS after 1 hour
97% said it provides a NATURAL, UNDETECTABLE FINISH
97% said it provides a SMOOTH, CREASELESS FINISH
97% said it provides a FLAWLESS "NO MAKEUP LOOK"

My opinion : I've used this concealer for about a whole month now. The shade 'Very Fair' is a perfect match to my skintone. - I know, who would have thought it possible? We all know how much of a struggle that is...
I love how thick and easy to blend the formula is. I can build up my coverage. My dark under-eyes are almost completely concealed. What I found the best, was that even if it has coverage, it's still quite illuminating and not cakey. It doesn't look grey-ish. My eyes look refreshed and my under-eye is brightened. However, of course as no one or nothing is perfect, with time, it felt quite drying. - so a tone of eye cream would be needed. I guess even concealers can be let down. It left a bitter taste... I guess 'the honeymoon phase' ended too early...

J'utilise cet anticerne depuis un mois. La teinte very fair correspond à mon teint. Incroyable mais vrai! J'apprécie que cet anticerne soit assez épais mais aussi facile à moduler. Je peux ainsi choisir la couvrance que je désire avoir. Il ne devient pas pâteux. Et pourtant, j'applique à peu près trois couches sous chaque oeil afin de faire disparaitre entièrement mes cernes violettes. Son point fort est très certainement son côté couvrant mais naturel. Il est aussi assez lumineux. Une chose qui je trouve est rare lorsqu'on choisit un anticerne couvrant. Il n'a pas non plus un sous ton gris lorsqu'il recouvre mes cernes violettes. Mes cernes semblent dissipées et mes yeux plus lumineux. Cependant, j'ai pu constater, à force d'utilisation que cet anticerne a asséché mon contour des yeux. Il faudra donc ne pas lésiné sur la crème contour des yeux.


FORMULA : 4/5
SHADES AVAILABLE : 5/5
LASTING POWER : 4/5
'CAKEY EFFECT' : () YES (x) NO
COVERAGE : 4/5
TOTAL : 17/20
4 ✰

Do I recommend this product ? I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't have dry under-eye area as I found it a bit drying. Other than that, I'm pleased with this product.

Je recommande ce produit uniquement aux personnes qui recherchent une forte couvrance et qui n'ont pas les yeux très secs. En résumé, je reste plutôt satisfaite de cet anticerne.

Photo diary : Paris ❄

13 January 2017 Paris, France


Hey my lovebirds. I hope all is well for you. I'm trying to get back into blogging. It has not been easy. Time flies. It goes by so quickly. I always have a million things to do and so little time... However, I'm trying to stuck to this one blogpost per week schedule. It's all I can manage... - For now, hopefully!

Anyhow, I'm back with a small photo diary. I went to Paris for the new year. I spent the new year weekend there. It was sooooo freaking cold. I don't think I've ever felt that cold in my life. I was freezing. Nonetheless, it was beautiful city. If you follow me on snapchat, you probably saw how beautiful and vibrant it was. However, I've made a note to self : never go to Paris in the wintertime. I would also like to give a shot out to all those girls wearing no tights and sandals on New Year Eve... in -10 degrees Paris. YOU GO GIRLS! I have all the respect in the world for those fearless girls... I was cold for you, my darlings, with my cashmere tights... What we do for our love of fashion...

P.S I'm pretty sure I've eaten for - and maybe - all of us during this short weekend. #foodcoma

Thank you for reading and I'll see you soon ♥ x

urban decay - Razor Sharp Eyeliner { review }

8 January 2017

Hey lovebirds! I hope all is well. I've been testing Urban Decay's eyeliner. I bought it last month and I've been wearing it on two separate different occasions : - a whole day + a nightout
- during the day.

So here is my review of Urban Decay's Razor Sharp Eyeliner.

Brand description :
Introducing Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Eyeliner by Urban Decay, an intensely pigmented liquid liner that lasts all day and comes in an array of shades---from lacquered creams to metallic shimmers.

This water-resistant formula dries down quickly, provides long-lasting wear, and will not smudge. Its fine-tipped brush applicator lets you lay down sharp liquid lines so you can draw them on super thin or thick and bold, or even spot-reapply with ease. Then simply remove it with makeup remover.

My opinion : At first, I've to admit I wasn't a fan of this eyeliner. The very first time I wore it, I ended up with eyeliner everywhere as the day went by. So odd. So annoying. I don't know why but I've used it again a couple weeks ago and it did no such thing. Strange things. So yeah, I have mixed feelings about this product. It wasn't all that bad. The second time around it was quite amazing. It didn't budge. It stayed on all day and night.


Do I recommend this product ? It's not the eyeliner of the century. I wouldn't say it's a must but on overall, it's a pretty good eyeliner.
