November Favorites

November has come to a close and december is about to begin. Both a time of joy but also a time of stress for the students such as myself. I wanted to create a post about some of the things that I have really been loving in the month of November – this is a beauty edition.

1. I recently re-discovered two of my Essie nail polishes – ‘Leading Lady’ and ‘Muchi, Muchi’. Leading Lady is very fitting for the winter/christmas months and Muchi, Muchi is just a classic. Although very new, I also love Sally Hansen’s ‘Rule of Plum

2. All things Sally Hansen. Oh. My. God. It’s a good brand! Their nail polishes are so beautiful and I got a chance to try their top and base coat and I am in love. Especially the top coat blew my mind away. When they call it ‘fast-dry’ they really mean it! It’s basically the only brand I buy at the moment.

3. Gosh Liquid Eyeliner. After my holiday I stopped using eyeliner for a while because I had a tan, but I just started using this again.

4. TIGI Bed Head Manipulator. I got this when I got permanent curls and now it’s almost empty. It’s a great hair wax for longer hair because it is more liquid-y and easier to apply all over long hair.

5. TIGI Catwalk Bodifying Spray. This is a really good hair spray and for once it actually smells well too instead of choking you 🙂

6. I still love the Nivea In-shower Body Lotion. You can read my opinions about it here.

7. My new O.P.I Matte Top coat that I got yesterday – yes, yesterday was still november 😉 I got it as a gift and I went home and tried it out immediately and I love the look it gives.

Would You Rather? Tag – Beauty edition

I saw this “Would you rather? Tag” here and I thought it would be fun to do!

1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip glosses or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?

I don’t usually wear eye shadow so I could live without that, but I ALWAYS use eyeliner and mascara (apart from when I have a tan, then I only wear mascara).

2. Would you rather chop all of your hair off or never be able to cut it again?

Hard question. Would it grow out again if you chopped it or would it stay short forever? I still think I would chop it off though. I’ve had a pixie cut before and it looked quite nice, and I can’t stand the idea of your hair getting so long and looking shabby.

3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

Pink. Definitely pink. Coral doesn’t suit my skin tone very well.

4. If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?

Clothes. I have so much makeup, but it seems I never have anything to wear :p

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?

Eyeliner as lipstick. No wait,. Lipstick as eyeliner. No.. OMG both things would look so weird!

6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

I’ve never been to MAC so I’m gonna say Sephora because of my ignorance.

7. Would you rather only use one eyeshadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?

One lip colour. I don’t really do lipstick that much.

8. Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?

Summer clothes in winter. I HATE being too warm! And when you live in Denmark your winter clothes are VERY warm!
9. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?

Since neutral isn’t an option, I would say dark nails.
10. Would you rather give up your favourite lip colour or favourite eye product.

Lip colour. Thank god that said “colour” because I could NEVER give up my neutral lip balm – call me an addict 😀

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or messy bun?

Messy bun. Since my hair has gotten long I actually find the swinging of the ponytail annoying.

12. Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip gloss?

Again I am going to exclude lip balm and say I would rule out lip gloss as I don’t wear it that much.

13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?

Have none at all. I think the big, sharpie-looking eyebrow trend is ugly! At least no eyebrows make a statement.

14. Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

Makeup I think. I have a nail polish addiction right now, but had you asked me a year ago I probably would have said I would live without nail polish.

Love, Nanna

Sale in Matas

So, the other day I got an email from Club Matas that they were having an inventory sale.

Oh how lovely!

So of course I was going! I asked a friend of mine to come along as shopping is always nicer when you have company. None of really knew what to expect; maybe they just needed money or maybe they were just getting rid of all the stuff that they cannot sell normally. As it turns out, the earlier was the case. They opened up their tiny back room to about 15-20 people where they had between 25-50 % discount.

Here is what I bought:

I bought some hair wax for my boyfriend and in the make-up department I bought 1000 kisses by Rimmel London in the shade of Grippy Grape. The lipstick is not really for everyday use, but luckily I’ve got a party coming up this friday 😉 Aside from that I also got Maybelline New York’s Dream Sun Triple Bronzing Powder in the shade of 01 Blonde as I am not exactly the most tanned person you can find (just way ’til I get back from my holiday!). Last but not least I bought my go-to mascara, the Volume Million Lashes Excess by L’Oréal Paris – Love it!

Then there’s the Nivea In-shower Body Lotion which I only bought because it was on sale and I wanted to try it out as i HATE HATE HATE putting on lotion!

As you may have noticed in the picture, I was mainly there for the nail polish as I have quite an obsession with nail art at the moment. I got 8 different colours + Essie Good to Go (top and base coat). So today I decided to wear the white nail polish with a silver glitter accent on the ring fingers.

I LOOOVE sale, but I don’t think I will need to buy more nail polish anytime soon.
