Knock Off: Urban Decay – Naked Flushed

Naked Flushed I


Good Day to you Beauty! Last review of the Urban Decay Knock offs I got on I have had this one for a very long time, now. I love this palette, but not because of every product in this palette.

Naked Fluhed II


The first thing on the left is a bronzer, it is positive and negative at the same time. Why? It’s positive because it’s not extremely dark, it is negative because the product won’t come off easily. I have to rub the brush onto the product for at least 10 seconds to set an ounce of visible product onto my skin. Basically, the bronzer is very hard and dry. The second product, in the middle, is a highlighter. I don’t know what happened here, but this highlighter is very crumbly, just like the eyeshadows of the Naked palettes. The highlight itself is very subtle, though. Then, the last product on the right side is a blush. I love the color of this blush! Unfortunately, the blush itself is just like the bronzer, very hard and dry (visible on the picture). I need lots of rubbing with my brush to get some blush on my cheeks. But the result is beautiful!

Naked Flushed III

Once more, pure rubbish written on the back of the palette. All by all, I am curious to buy the real deal to see if they are better in quality. If they are, this could become my ultimate favorite palette as it is very handy to have 3 in 1 and I’m in love with the blush anyway.

I hope you enjoyed this short review, let me know what you think of the Naked Flushed in the comments down below.

Until Next Time,

Column: Singlehood, Part I – Throwback Thursday to three years ago

Column Singlehood - BannerI have been single for a little less than 3 years now, and I feel that I should write about it, because it may be time for me to change that. Before I tell you why I should change my relationship status, I should tell you about my last one: 

Three years ago I was in a toxic relationship with someone I knew, it wouldn’t last forever. We did not share the same religious views (he was more religious than I am) and belongs to a family who looks down on people who are not from the same religious, ethnic and financial background than they are. Lucky him, we didn’t share anything in common on all three points, that was promising! He seemed sweet at first, and I myself didn’t have lots of boyfriends and found this to be the perfect opportunity to date him, even though, we were like ‘best friends’ at first and I knew by dating him, that the friendship would end at some point; I did it anyways. The only thing I gained out of this is the experience of having a 9-months-lasting-relationship, really, nothing else. 

After a six months relationship, the last summer of the relationship (around this time, three years ago), I wasn’t a happy person. It made me realize what we had was toxic and I should end it, ASAP. I did not, because I did not know how. As I was an unhappy person, I made him feel miserable from time to time and one day he just broke up with me (Halloween 2012), BOOM: trick or treat! I thought that this was my opportunity, I was free and felt that I should make him feel as he was the bad guy in this story, ‘cause he really just was, at the end. Me, being a great actress, I showed him what I got; I made him feel as I was madly in love with him, while I was not. We had a talk, face to face, and even though, I have to admit it, I was sad and had a hard time speaking, a part of me was still acting. For instance, when we had that talk, we had it in the apartment of a friend,  at the end we had nothing to say to each other and I decided to leave. As I knew he would follow 5 minutes later, I decided to stay in the elevator and pretend to cry in there, to make the bastard feel guilty. I know, it was evil, but he pretended to be sad too while this was all a joke to him. What a scumbag! I felt bad but still, I was convincing myself that he would regret it, wanted to start fresh and this could be the opportunity for me to break up with HIM! Yes, mam, I’ve got it all planned out! Unfortunately (or not), he was serious about the breakup and it finally got to me. He had someone else! I cried for a week, did not eat for 36 hours, lost 3 kilos and ended up depressed for six months. 


During these six months, I cried over romantic songs I’m usually not emotional about; cried on the phone to a friend of mine about him ALL THE F-ING TIME; went out so much I gained so much weight that I ended up being disgusting. What I think broke me, was the fact that he broke up with me and not the other way around. I felt like I was the weak person who got broken up with. After six months, the crying ended, the depression: so-so. I was still depressed, but at least I did not cry over him anymore. Because, why would I? I was not even in love with him! He was definitely not my type; the sex was horrible; he literally had the smallest penis I had ever seen and the last six months of the relationship, he barely gave me any attention. Damn it! It just got to me, he was one hell of an asshole and thinking about it made me realize why. I started cyberstalking Mister Small Penis, to see what did chance in his life on social media to see if he had someone else…

Each week I am going to tell you a piece of my singlehood story and last relationship, that will lead us to where I am today. If you are interested in knowing more, stay tuned on my blog because I will be posting an article each week to tell you more about it. I will not divulge any real names in it, if one day I use a name, I will make sure to change the name to another one, except if that person is okay with being named. Obviously, I am not sharing any specific details about my ex or any involved men. We’ll call him Mister Small Penis.

Until Next Time,

Knock Off: Urban Decay – Naked 3

Naked 3 IHi, my loves! And Naked 3 it is! Am I the only one loving the ribbles on the packaging of the Naked 3 palette AND the color of the palette itself? Loving the ribbles, hating the plasticky packaging, though. Naked 3 IINaked 2 III

Okay, I have to be honest with you; I do not have a favorite in this palette and I’m not sure what to think about it. I’m not a fan of the highlight colors available in this palette and I don’t seem to understand what’s so Naked about this palette? I found this palette to be more of a pink palette than a nude palette. At first I was totally obsessed with nudish shimmery pink colors, now I am totally not into it anymore. I appreciate the fact that there are non-shimmery colors: Strange, Limit and Nooner. Nooner might become a favorite sooner or later, as this is the only color I like next to Darkside (maybe, maybe, Blackheart too, really, maybe!). I won’t complain again about the quality of the eyeshadows: crumbly again, the quality on the eye = very good.

Naked 3 IIII

Once more, total rubbish on the back of the palette! They need a proper translator ASAP. But as I said, for €5,00 each, I wouldn’t complain if it wasn’t for the sake of this review.

I hope you enjoyed this short review of the knock off of the Naked 3 palette by Urban Decay. I still have Naked Flushed to review for you (I have had this one for a very long time now). If you are curious to see the review on the Naked Flushed by Urban Decay, stay tuned until next Monday.

Until Next Time,

Plog: Zoë’s Birthday

Hi, my loves! July 18th was Zoë’s birthday and I’d like to share some pictures of this day with you!

Birthday Zoë II


Basically, Zoë organized a High Tea for her special day and this was on the menu: mini sandwiches, macarons, and sweet petit fours.

Birthday Zoë III

This was my first time trying scones with Clotted Cream and I loved it! Her aunt made a delicious Tarte Tatin, but a whole lot of caramel, can’t go wrong with that! 😉



Birthday Zoë IIII

Me and my girls enjoying some tea, obviously, it’s a High Tea! On the left side, you see the Tarte Tatin and on the right side, it’s a Banoffee Pie her mom made.
Birthday Zoë V

Birthday girl Zoë, Ines and I

Birthday Zoë I

This brownie cake!!! 😮 It was so good, you cannot even imagine! The amount of chocolate was overwhelming! The cake was by a small company based in Antwerp, called: Bambi’s Mom and The Cooking Factory.

Birthday Zoë VI

A girls’ only birthday cannot be done without a proper visit to the movie theater with some Magic Mike XXL going on. From left to right: Toni, Ines and I + Zoë in front.

Birthday Zoë VII

After Magic Mike XXL, we went to Zomerfabriek, which is an open air club with a sort of garage as a dance floor, a lounge with access to the outside kinda-thing, Urban music and these weird cups to sip from.

Birthday Zoë VIII

That trio, though!  Ines, Zoë, Me

Birthday Zoë VIIII

Group selfie totally ruined, ’cause there is always someone who isn’t joining to gotta-pose-thingy!

I hope you enjoyed this plog and I would like you to visit my dear friends’ blogs too:



Until Next Time,

Knock Off: Urban Decay – Naked 2

Naked 2 I

Hi gorgeous! Here I am again, with another review of the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette! First of all I have a favorite eyeshadow in this palette, the color: Verve. I love, love, love this eyeshadow so much! Secondly, as the knock off of the Naked 1 palette, the shadows are a bit crumbly, very shimmery (If you like a lot of shimmer you will be okay with that), but the shadows are good in quality once applied to my eyelids.

Naked 2 IIII

Apart from the eyeshadows, who are great in quality, but crumbly, the packaging is something I cannot live with. First of all: everything is pure plastic and looks cheap, second of all the ‘mirror’, well the mirror is not a mirror, you cannot see through the supposed-to-be-a-mirror thing, this is disgusting! The brush is good at applying, though, but still plasticky and cheap in quality.

Naked 2 IINaked 2 III

Although, I have a favorite eyeshadow color, called: Verve, the rest of the colors aren’t really exciting. This shouldn’t be a big difference with the real Naked 2 palette. These are personally not colors I would wear and I figured out, once I apply Verve, I grab another palette to finish up the look. Basically, if Urban Decay would sell Verve apart from the palette, I would definitely buy the eyeshadow, but I wouldn’t buy the real Naked 2 palette.

Naked 2 V

This time I don’t see any big mistakes made on the back of the palette.

I hope you enjoyed my review on this palette. I still have Naked 3 and Naked Flushed to review and you will be able to see these reviews very soon, on my blog. Comment down below what your thoughts are on the knock offs and the real ones.

Until Next Time,

Love | Sarah K.

Knock Off: Urban Decay – Naked


Naked 1 - Front

Hi, lovelies! Not so long ago I have been shopping like crazy! One of the things I have discovered were the Naked palettes on Obviously, I know they aren’t real, but I was curious to know how well they were made.

First of all, I bought the 3 Naked palettes for about €15,00. Aliexpress is one of my favorite online shops and I was curious to discover how the Naked palettes were, as I have never had any real Naked palette. As you can see on the picture, the form of the palette looks exactly like the real deal, although I have heard the knock offs are a little lighter in color than the original one.

Naked 1 - First 6Naked 1 - Part II


The shades look exactly (or almost, barely visible with the naked eye ;)) like the original; the only difference I see is that these are very crumbly, and when you swatch them, the intensity is not very good. But, once you apply it on your eyelids (with an eye shadow base) it looks beautiful. The packaging looks terrible to me, the chances are high that the shadows will come off anytime soon; the letters are fading too.

The last thing that differs from the original Naked palette is the back. If you look and read closely, you will see that what is written, is pure b*llshit. Words are missing, letters are forgotten, and it says that with this palette you get an eye pencil while I got an eyeshadow brush.

Naked I - Back

Conclusion, if you aren’t planning on having the real deal because let’s face it, it is expensive, then, go ahead and buy this palette. The eyeshadows itself are great, the packaging is not. But on the other hand, €5,00 for a palette is inexpensive and worth the try. I still want the real deal, though,  now that I have tried a knock off.

Are you curious to see what else I got? Stay tuned for my next shoplog and if you are interested in knowing if the Naked 2, Naked 3 and Naked Flushed are as bad or good as the Naked 1 palette? Stay tuned, and I will gladly make an article for each palette.

Until Next Time,

Love | Sarah K.

Skin protection during summer and all year round!

Protecting my skin is one of my latest obsession. It could be a worst kind of obsession, like a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough for instance. But no, it is all about my skin, ’bout my skin, no trouble… heuhm… do not go that way, Sarah! But I am kind of right, no trouble, I do not want trouble with my skin. I do not know why I suddenly started to think so much about my skin, but since I did I see multiple advertisements, videos, etc. about it. 

Let me get it straight to you, I have been mistreating my skin for quite a while, but now that I am more and more into beauty I feel guilty about it. I have been struggling with my skin since I have reached puberty and two years ago I decided to start the Roaccutan treatment. With the advice of my doctor, I took the treatment for three months. My skin looked definitely better, and I was very happy. It did not last very long before my face got some new visitors, namely: pimples. My beautician told me that three months was not long enough, so I went back to my doctor’s and she did not mind to prescribe me for six months. It turns out that I am on this treatment for over 9 months now. 

The problems with Roaccutan are: your skin dries out, you get cracked lips, your skin is itchy, bleeding nose, and your heart can beat faster. (these are my side effects, but the side-effects list is much longer) Basically, your skin becomes very sensitive, needs special lotions and butter that do not give your skin that burned feeling you get when you are allergic to a certain product. Of course, when the sun is shining you need extra protection because Roaccutan does not love the sun! Sunscreen is, therefore, a MUST! (Don’t worry Belgium weather never made me burn, even when I forget to protect my skin)

After some research, I discovered that even when the sun is not shining, you still need some SPF protection, as the UV’s are always shining through. I was flabbergasted! This meant I lived for over 23 years without protecting my skin correctly? I needed to change that! From that day, I pick up all the sunscreen I had put far away in a corner of my bathroom cabinet and started using them. I had gathered an entire collection but never used any of it, as I thought it was not especially necessary in this country, Oh boy was I wrong! 

Here are some of the products I am using and testing for you:

Catrice – BB Allround Foundation SPF 30 // Garnier  -Ambre Solaire Crème SPF 30

Catrice - BB Allround Foundation Garnier_Ambre_Solaire_BB_Sun_Face_Protection_SPF30_50ml_1372845400

Ombra – Crème Solaire SPF 25 // MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream No.23 SPF42

Ombra - Crème Solaire Missha - BB Cream

Review, anyone? 😉

Until Next Time,

Love | Sarah K.
