Review│B.A.E by Hema

Beauty, Make-up

It has been a while now since Hema has released their own beauty line ‘B.A.E’. I wanted to test these products for so long, but I just didn’t found the time, until now.
Their range has everything you could think of and even their packaging is kinda cute.
Other than that, it doesn’t cost much either. You already now I love to try out new things, so I was really curious to test these products.
I’ve bought a foundation, a lipstick and a lip strobe and eyeshadow in a stick.
The foundation and the two lipsticks costs € 6 each and the eyeshadow on a stick costs
€ 4.50.
The foundation I’ve choose is called ‘shake it up’ with skin tint 05 toffee. There were a few colors to choose from, but this one fits me perfect. When I applied it, it really covers the spots and places I wanted to be covered. You can only see I wear foundation because I didn’t apply some on my nekline. Other than that, I think this is a really good foundation. Oh, and the bottle is so cute.
I was really drawn to the eyeshadow on a stick or 8h on a stick as it is called. It says it lasts for 8 hours, hence the name. The eyeshadow doesn’t really have a name, but I liked this one the best. It’s a pity there wern’t many colors. This one has a light orange/chrome color. When I applied it, it felt so sticky. It stays on pretty long and it’s pigmented to. It has little glitters in it. I have to say that I did notice, after some while and after some blinking with my eyes, I have a nude spot in the middle of my eye and it looked like I didn’t put any make-up on, on that spot. Another thing is that I thought is was some kind of pencil, which you could turn to make it longer, but it doesn’t, so it’s rather small and little. After a few uses, the pencil is almost gone.
The dry matte liquid lipstick is my favorite of the three products. It’s kinda holograpic and also says it lasts for 8 hours. This one definitely stays on really long. Even after I ate and drank, you still saw the pretty color with pink, blue and purple glitters.
The lip strobe is kinda the same, but you just put this on above another lipstick, so I didn’t really used this one right now.
Anyway, the products are really pretty when applied and don’t cost much. They also have palettes, mascara’s and much more which I didn’t test. I definitely gonna buy some more lipsticks and the foundation, and maybe test some other eyeshadows.
I think this is a pretty good beauty line, which I’m fan of!

Review │I♡MAKEUP

Beauty, Make-up

I know I’ve recently talked about make-up, but I had to share this with you. It has been a while since I’ve spotted/know this brand, but I never used it before or bought it, although the packaging is really nice. The brand is called I♡MAKEUP and it’s amazing! It is a really affordable brand and it’s of high quality! I have to say, they sell tons of different make-up, but I only tested two of their make-up palettes, which are gorgeous by the way!
The packaging of their palettes look like a chocolate bar, which they have in two different sizes. The ones I bought are called Deathy By Chocolate and Gold Bar. I just liked these the most, but the other onces where gorgeous to. On the backside of the palettes, you can clearly see which colors are inside (that’s why I choose these two).
The big ones only costs €9.99 (although in the shop where I bought them) and they have 16 different colors, all with a name.

I hope you already now by now, that in my opinion, brands or products with a low price don’t always have to be bad or low quality. Believe me when I say, this one is sooooo good and soooo pigmented. The colors are truly amazing!
I tried a few colors and took pictures, but I have to say, I’m so bad in putting on make-up, although I never got bad comments (at least not in my face ;p) and my mother thinks I look pretty, haha. So, the colors arn’t that bright on the pictures as they are in real life, but you just have to trust me on this one.
Like I said, I’m not a pro at make-up and the pictures arn’t that great as well, but still, the colors still look good. Also, I took the pictures on different days and different times, so the light is different and also my skin, so the colors will be to.

1. Death By Chocolate


This palette mostly has darker colors in it, which I kinda like. There are a few nudes, but not that much. Most of them are neutral, some of them have glitters in it.
The colors I used for this look are White Light, which is a very light beige, Fool’s gold, a really glittery gold and All is lost, a black color.
I like to use a light base, that’s why I used White Light. Than I used Fool’s gold in the middle of my eye and the darker color in the corner of my eye. I do this almost every time I do my make-up, because I kinda gives me a more mysterious look. I don’t know how to call it, but it just fits me and it brings out my eyes (which you obviously can’t see that good in this picture).


2. Golden Bar


This is a bit of a darker look and I’m the type that mostly uses dark colors mixed with nudes. I have to say, maybe this one is a bit to dark and a bit messy, but I kinda like it.
Although you don’t really see it that clear on the picture, most of the colors in this palette have glitters in it. I used Chocolatier, which was such a beautiful color, I even didn’t want to put any other colors on, Cocoa, which is a red/brown kinda color and Wrapped, which is dark brown.
Again, I used a light base, than glitters in the middle of my eye of and a darker color in the corner of my eyes.


I just wanna say that I love this brand already soooo much and I immediatly want to try all the other palettes, because there are so many and they are so beautiful. Like you saw, I bought the brown and golden version, but you have two pink versions, a black, an orange, a green, silver,…There are just palettes for every type!
Can’t wait to test the other ones!

Review │Cushion products from Hema

Beauty, Make-up

Recently, I walked into the Hema and noticed something new, which were the cushion lipstick and cushion eyeshadow. I don’t think this is really a new thing, since I know other well know brands (for example NYX) have similar products. Anyway, it’s something completely new for the Hema store, because normally they only sell the regular stuff and their make-up is not really a well-know (make-up) brand.
You also had a cushion foundation and cushion eyebrow something, but I wasn’t really interessted in that. Like I said, I chose the cushion lipstick and eyeshadow.


The packaging is not really beautiful or anything, it’s just black and simple. It’s small enough to put in your make-up bag or handbag, if you want to. On the top of the lid you could see wich color it it. The lipstick I chose kinda looks like a dark pink, with a purple-ish kinda color in it, but when you apply it, it’s more like a light pink with glitters in it. So it’s usefull to try the testers first.
There wern’t that many colors and also not really the normal kind of colors for lipstick and eyeshadow.
Once I removed the screw cap, there was this weird smell, which I didn’t really like. My mother didn’t smell anything, so maybe it’s just me.
To use it, you just have to put the cushion on to your eyelid and rub a little bit. You don’t have to push anything to make the ‘liquid’ come out of it. As soon as you start rubbing on your eyes (and with rubbing I just mean gently swipe back and forth) you immediately see the pretty color with the little glitters. You don’t have to rub that much to see results.


I kinda have bad eyes to show you, because they are kinda hooded (which I don’t like, but hey, gotta accept it) so I had to apply a bit more than another person would probably do, that’s why it’s little messy, but I wanted to show you how it looked so you could really see it. I kinda like it. It’s really easy and even my mother thought it was handy.
Even with my hooded eyes,  I get the feeling you can see I have something on. It’s a really pretty neu,tral color. It’s almost impossible to spill, unless someone gives you a push or you’re just clumsy.


Like the eyeshadow, there arn’t many colors to. This one looks kinda coral-ish and a bit nude-like when you see the packaging, but it’s kinda hard to describe which color it is, when you put it on, but I really like it. It has a gold shine to it.
It’s really weird to put it on, because it’s so dry. You know when you kinda smack your lips or you roll them over each other to get more lipstick on both of your lips, well it’s not working here, or at least not that good. You have to put the cushion lipstick on both of your lips seperatly. It doesn’t stick and doesn’t has a flavour. It isn’t really smooth either, but I kinda like it. it feels like I have nothing on my lips, while you clearly can see I have.


What I don’t like about these products, were the smell. I just don’t know if it’s me or not! Luckily, when I apply it, I don’t really notice anything anymore and it doesn’t bother me anymore. Also, it’s a shame there arn’t many colors.
The eyeshadow stays relatively long on my lips, as long as I don’t drink or eat. After that, the color is almost completely gone, so you have to re-apply, which is not really a good thing.

On the other hand, I really liked the colors and how it looked and worked. It’s so handy and simple. They  both cost € 7, which isn’t much, but I would liked the product to last longer.
Let me know if you have it a try and if it’s only me how smells something!
