Skins Cosmetics – New Store Opening

If you weren’t convinced yet, you for sure will be after reading this post. Ghent is the place to be. In general! It always has been (love my city ^_^) but it is even more now with all the new shops popping up like mushrooms!

Newest kid on the block:

Skins Cosmetics

 

The 1st store opened 16 years ago in The Netherlands. 12 shops later, they found their way to Belgium. More specific in Ghent @ Post Plaza, Korenmarkt.

There aren’t many cosmetic stores that sell Niche brands. Aside from Fin du Jour there are none in Ghent. So it will definitely catch on! Perfumes, make-up & skincare. You won’t walk out empty handed. But I can’t guarantee the same for your wallet…

The brand list is endless but I must warn you, not all will be available. BUT you can order online (or in store) get it delivered in store AND pay in store 😊

EXCLUSIVE!

Some brands are 😱! Have you heard of Le Labo before? Diptyque? Eve Lom? Estelle & Thild? Christophe Robin? Coola Suncare?

I am known with Rosebud Salve (my favorite!), Molton Brown, E.Coudray & Grown Alchemist.

And many will be over enthousiastic for Laura Mercier, and so many more…

I read the store was opening tomorrow, Saturday, but since I was in the neighbourhood Wednesday I wanted to sneak peak. Shelves were being filled and it seemed great! I was afraid to take some pictures (as usual) but I found some pictures on their site.

I asked for some information and I was immediately allowed to buy something since someone had to be the 1st customer ^_^ (Yeay!) They were so friendly & such a great service even when they weren’t officially open yet. What I bought is still a little secret since I’ll review the product later this week so keep an eye on the blog if you’re curious! Tip: Summerrrtime!

Lips without lipstick are like cakes without frosting

Lipstick. I can’t live without. I’ll rarely leave the house without any in my bag. Any? Multiple! Half of my bag is filled with lip creams. But not everyone is fond of lipsticks.

A lot of women think they don’t have the lips for it, think the color is too loud, don’t like the consistency,…

If you don’t have the lips for it, Adjust the shape!

Color too loud, go for a softer shade.

Too sticky, try a stain,…

whatever you do, make it work woman!

Why Sigma is the best! Review

I ❤ Sigma Brushes! I own a couple of them & always thought they were great. My all time favorite is their Flat Top Kabuki Brush. BUT (of course there has to be a but) they do not last you long time. Or should I say, mine didn’t last that long?

Here’s the thing:

I bought my 1st F80 over 3 years ago. Loved it to death! But after 6 months, it completely started falling apart. You should know that I treat my brushes all equally 😇 My other Sigma’s were doing just fine as all of my other brushes were too. Continue reading “Why Sigma is the best! Review”
