NEW IN: Blacks, reds & sweets

Photobucket


Christmas is over and that means many posts about gifts will appear on the blogs this week!
Since we don't celebrate Christmas, I decided to treat myself on a few little presents. Oh, and I got some Christmas presents from my sweet colleagues too! 

Take a look!


I'll start with the things I bought myself.

First, a pair of simple, black heels. Every girl should have at least one pair of these. My favourite pair of black pumps give me blisters, so I needed replacement. These are fake leather. I tried them on and they are so comfortable! The heel is 12 cm and the platform is 2 cm.

I bought them online at H&M for €19,95

Just simple, faux suede flats. Love the silver and gold details. The fact that the little round, studs have both colours, makes it easy to combine with both silver and gold jewelry. 
I have to say, they're not comfortable. At. All. I wore them two times to try them and ouch. Maybe they need to adjust to my feet, but until now.. Very hurtful.

I bought these at H&M for €19,95.

Now, so let's talk make up!

When I went make up shopping, I actually wanted to buy a more neutral or pink colour. I went to MAC for a concealer, wearing a lipstick I'll discuss next, and the girl told me I should try a red lipstick with a brown undertone, instead of a blue undertone. That would look more classic with my brown eyes. I tried it on, forgot about the concealer and bought it. Red lipstick is my weakness.. 
Anyway, Viva Glam I is a red, matte lipstick with a brown undertone. It's such a beautiful shade. 

I bought it at a MAC counter for €18,50

I saved the best for last. ISN'T SHE A BEAUTY?! 
A while ago my colleague wore a beautiful red lipstick and I had to know which one it is and buy it. So that's what I did. I went to the Yves Saint Laurent counter and matched the red shade that suited me best and I took it with me. No hesitation, no doubts, no thinking. I fell in love immediately! This is also the red lipstick I was wearing when the lady from MAC matched me with a different shade. 

Rouge Pur Couture - The Mats in 203
Price was €31,00

Please don't judge me for buying two red lipsticks on one day, while I already have a few. I put the two swatches next to each other, and they really are different! You see?!
The one on top is the YSL lipstick. This swatch doesn't do the colour any justice. Don't worry, reviews will come!
The red below is the MAC lipstick. A beautiful, deep red colour with a brown undertone.



As you can see: all I need in my life is black and red! So I spoiled myself with these things. 
But my colleagues spoiled me too! Just little gifts, but you have no idea how happy they made me :)

Yes, it was necessary to brag about the fact that I got chocolate. You have no idea how important it is for me to share this with you!

I feel spoiled, blessed and hungry, so I'm going to eat some of the delicious sweets my colleagues gave me!

Hope you liked seeing my - not so many - Christmas presents!
Please send me a link to your Christmas presents. I'd love to see them!

  14. I feel you with the red lippies, sistah! Girl can't have too many red lipsticks is my life motto :P (I think I have only 4 atm, but still 4 more than many other girls :D). I need burgundy red tho. I wish we had mac here. Both looks so pretteh!
    I love what you got. I love these black shoes with heels (the higher the heel, the closer to heaven!- another life motto, good thing we're small :P). Those H&M shoes weren't comfortable for me, but they are so pretty!

    1. Haha mine too! A girl really can't have too many red lipsticks. It's just such a beautiful colour and there are so many shades to pick from! Glad you like the haul! And I agree on your life motto. These heels are actually one of the least high heels I have, but they're just perfect for job interviews and such! X
