Picture this: I notice an awesome make up product on a blog somewhere, so I grab my bike and go out to buy it in the drugstore around the corner. Nice and easy, but it doesn't always work that way.
I have worked my butt off to get a few of the products I own, there are products I had to (literally) travel all around the world for.
So let me show you four of the products that, because it was very difficult to get them, I like to call my MAKE UP VICTORIES. Okay, this sounds epic. Well - it is!
You may have already seen my post about the ah-ma-zing Italian Brand Kiko. Weeks before my trip to Rome I promised myself that I would find at least one Kiko shop in that damn city... and I succeeded! Although my friends were maybe a bit irritated because I dragged them with me on my quest... :p
Don't know if you've heard about the nail polish brand Sally Hansen? Their nail polishes are used in many tutorials I watch, so I was very upset when I noticed this brand isn't available in the Netherlands. Later, I found out I was wrong! I bumped into this black Sally Hansen polish - on sale! But... I didn't buy it! What. Was. Wrong. With. Me? I needed a black polish, I know for certain this brand is amazing, and this polish was only four euros. Still, I was stupid enough to resist this baby!
So I regretted not buying it, and I went back to see if it was still in the shop, waiting for me. It wasn't.
A few weeks later, when I almost forgot about the polish, I went to the drugstore to pick up some things, and suddenly there it was! So me and the polish lived happily ever after :)
I got this blush today, too. I saw this product - the star from the Revoltaire Limited Edition by Catrice - online, a few weeks before it was in store. I immediately knew I had to get this ombre-rocking beauty! When I was in Barcelona, I saw online (internetjunkie here...) that the Limited Edition was released. Nooooo! I could already foresee that the blush would be sold out when I returned home.
Luckily, my friend (who stayed in the Netherlands that week) bought it for me :) Thanks Loïs!
These were the products I had to fight for. You can see it: with a lot of willpower, help from friends and I have to admit a bit of luck, everything is possible!
