Beauty Essentials For School

bag

Because school has started very recently for me, and probably for much more people as well, I thought it would be fun to share you guys what my beauty essentials are for school. I always have some standard beauty things I take with me, just because that way I’m always prepared for the worst case scenarios beauty wise!

1. Deodorant

A thing I think is really handy to have in your schoolbag is deodorant, especially when you have PE. That way you can fresh yourself up if you can not shower and you still have a long day of school ahead of you. Nothing more worse than feeling sweaty after PE and you still have four more classes to go… The one I always use after PE is the Vogue Cats deodorant. The smell of this is just absolutely amazing! It’s so fresh and you will smell this for the rest of the day. So no weird scents, only really good ones!

2. Mirror

I ALWAYS take a mirror with me. If I don’t have a tiny little mirror in my bag, I don’t feel right. 😉

3. Lip balm

Another thing I can not go without during school! This is my guilty pleasure.. I love lip balm and use it the whole freakin’ day! Lip balm prevents your lips from feeling dry and rough and keeps them feeling smooth and soft. What else would a girl want?!

4. Lipstick/lipgloss

I always put on a lipstick and/or a lipgloss in the morning and then put it in my schoolbag so I can touch up my lips throughout the day. I love to wear a really nice lipstick or lipgloss, so that’s why I always take one with me when I’m going to school.

Side note: If you don’t like to wear full on lipstick or lipgloss but still like to have a bit of color on the lips, you can also go for a tinted lip balm. A good option are the Maybelline Baby Lips.

So those things are my absolute beauty essentials for when I’m going to school!

So tell me: what are your beauty essentials for a school day?

Review Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipsticks

001

I’ve had my eyes on the new Bourjois ColorBoost lipsticks for a while, but every time I went into the store willing to buy one (or more…), they were always sold out! But last wednesday was my lucky day: all the colors were in stock, so I bought two of them. And on top of that, they were also in sale: buy one, get one for free! After reading that I wanted to buy them all, but I managed to control myself.

The two I bought were 02 Fuchsia Libre (lower swatch) and 04 Peach On The Beach (upper swatch).

005

These lipsticks have SPF 15 in them, which is a really good thing. Also do they hydrate your lips and make them feel really soft. They are not to sticky and the pigmentation is really good! I mean, look at those swatches! *drools*

They wear really nice, and I think Peach On The Beach is a really good nude, everyday color. It gives your lips just that bit of extra color, but it’s not to overwhelming. Fuchsia Libre is a really gorgeous, deep pink color. You can wear this in the day as well with like a really nice, easy and light eye look. But this color is especially amazing for a night out! Than you’ll definitely have everyones attention!

On the packaging it says they last up to ten hours on your lips. Now, I think that’s a bit too much. but they do have a really good lasting time.

Just a little tip for when you’re wearing one of these Color Boost lipsticks: definitely blot your lips after you’ve applied them, because otherwise you’ll be tasting lipstick with everything you eat or drink. I’ve been there.

I can say I’m really loving these new Bourjois Color Boost lipsticks. The colors are really gorgeous, and they feel really nice on your lips. Please check them out when you have the chance!

Here in Holland you can buy these for 9,99 euros per lipstick.
