We all have some beauty products that are indispensable. I think every woman recognizes this: you keep buying and buying stuff and nothing is suitable enough for you. We’ve all experienced some beauty struggles: a chunky mascara, a foundation that makes you too pale, a day cream that makes your skin greasy. You keep trying until you discover that one product that’s perfect for you. And when it’s used up, you keep buying the same product. I will show you my five greatest beauty ‘treasures’, the essentials of my beauty collection.
Dr. Jackson’s coconut melt
It’s not only my secret beauty weapon, but also Miranda Kerr’s. I love Dr. Jackson’s Coconut Melt. It’s 100% organic and pure. I don’t only use it as a lip conditioner, but also as a hair conditioner when my hair feels dry or frizzy – especially after a rainy day -, or for my cuticles. A natural, but also very multifunctional product!
As you can see, it’s not fluid. If you put some in your handpalm, the substance melts as a result of your body temperature. That’s why it’s called coconut melt.
Rosebud Salve ‘Minted rose’
My favorite saviour in times of need. My lips are very dry and chapped in the winter and Rosebud salve really saves my lips! I also use it on my elbows when they’re dry. The scent of this lip balm is also fantastic!
The Naked2 palette from Urban Decay
The most beautiful eyeshadow palette ever. I was very sad when I heard that Sephora was closing all the Dutch Sephora branches. I bought the Naked2 palette the week before Sephora closed and it was the best buy ever. I even made one of my friends so enthusiastic, that she asked me to buy a Naked2 palette for her before I went to Paris!
You can create so many variant looks with this palette: from everyday make up, to a spectacular party look. So, if you have the Naked2 pallete, or if you’re considering to buy it, here is a link to a very inspiring tutorial on creating a ‘Chic Smokey Eye’ from the Portuguese beauty blogger Camila Coelho
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters in the colours ‘Pink Truffle’ and ‘Raspberry Pie’
I’ll never stop buying Revlon Colourburst lipsticks. The colours are so beautiful and the lipsticks have a great scent. It’s a lipstick and lip butter in one, so it also hydrates your lips. A real win-win situation! Raspberry Pie is a beautiful medium-dark raspberry pink with a (natural) glossy shine. It’s a very outstanding colour, therefore I keep my eyes natural when I’m using this lipstick. Pink truffle on the other hand is a warm, soft pink colour and also has a natural glossy finish, I wear this one very often!

As you can see, I’ve already found the perfect lip products and the best eyeshadow palette, but there are also a lot of undiscovered treasures. I’m still searching for the perfect concealer, eyeliner and foundation, so suggestions are always welcome. Hope you enjoyed my beauty favorites!:)
