Make-upstash #1: Face powders ♥


Hi everyone! I’m FINALLY making this blogpost. I will be showing you my make-upcollection. Well, only a part of it. I store my make-upcollection in an organizer, with 5 drawers. I will show you 1 drawer every week! I hope you’ll enjoy it!

Today is actually my favorite drawer, beside my eyeshadowdrawer. I’m going to show you my highlighter, blushes, bronzers and fixing powders! I will first tell you were I got my organizer from. It’s a organizer from Fancy Cube. I have the original one, from €99,95. I’m so happy with it! My make-up is so organized and it looks amazing!

** Disclaimer: I love make-up. It’s not that I want to show off because I own much. It’s just because I like watching blogposts like this and I saw in my poll that a lot of you like it too. **

So without any further ado, let’s start with the first part of my collection!


So these are all my highlighters, blushes, bronzers and fixing powders. This is how I store them in my drawer. I’d like to do my favorite products, I use everyday, at the beginning of my drawer (bottom of the picture).


You can see here all the powders. I will mention every product for you from left to right. Starting with the upper row.

  • Catrice Defining Blush (Love & Peach), Catrice Multi Matt Blush (Strawberry Frappuccino), Etos Blush Powder, Catrice Blush Artist (CorAll I Need)
  • Kiko Moon Dust Face Powder* (01 Mysterious Pink), Catrice Treasure Trove Powder Blush* (C01 Caviar and Champagne), Wet n Wild Mega Glo Illuminating Powder (Catwalk Pink), The Body Shop Shimmer Waves (02 Blush)
  • Essence Sun Club Shimmer Bronzing Powder (20 suntanned)Catrice Professional Contouring Palette (010 Ashy Radiance), Catrice Matt Bronzer* (Brave Bronze), Essence Stay All Day Translucent Fixing Powder (10 translucent)
  • Sleek Highlighting Palette (Solstice), Catrice Highlighting Powder* (C01 Flagg The Union Jack), Essence Cinderella Highlighter Powder* (01 The Glass Slipper), Essence All About Matt Fixing Compact Powder
  • Catrice Liquid Metal Eyeshadow (020 Gold ‘N Roses)Catrice High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder (010 Light Infusion), Manhatten CELEBRATE! Shimmer Powder (415 Gold), Etos Highlighting Illuminizer, Catrice All Matt Plus Shine Control Powder (027 Rosy Beige)

* = Limited Edition

These are all the products I own in that category. I have to say, the catrice/essence (the cheaper brands) packages, are terrible. They’re almost all broken even though I’m really careful with them! Next up I will show you my favorite products and some swatches.


I already mentioned all the products, so if you want the name of a certain product, please scroll a little up. I also made swatches of these products. The first picture will be swatches of the upper row on this picture, the second picture will be swatches of the lower row.


You can see the swatches on the first picture better because that are mostly blushes. Highlighters are just so hard to photograph!!

So, this was the first blogpost of my make-upcollection series. I really hope you liked it and if you have any questions, just ask me. I can make more swatches on instagram if you want!! 

Do you have any products of my collection?

Much love, Anne ♥

  1. I love it! Blushes are one of my favourite makeup items too! I can’t seem to ever get enough. 😀
    The Catrice Multi Matt Blush looks lovely. So do the Catrice Treasure Trove Powder Blush and Catrice Highlighting Powder in Flagg The Union Jack – of course they were limited edition! *pout*

    I have that Kiko Moon Dust Face Powder but in the Mauve shade. I used to have that The Body Shop Shimmer Waves but I gave it to a friend since I don’t use it often. I’m envious of your access to Kiko and Catrice – neither brands are available here!

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment. I have to say, that Catrice ‘Flagg The Union Jack’ powder isn’t my favorite. It is a matt highlighting powder and it gives a weird effect. But I just love to collect these items that’s why I still have it. Maybe I can use it in the future? I love that we can get essence and especially catrice here really easy. I love those brands, it’s also super cheap! I’m not super in love with Kiko, I think the brand has some really good products (like the blush), but other products I find sometimes boring.. Well, don’t be sad because you can get other brands I can’t get overhere!!!!! xx

      1. I think I was more attracted to the Union Jack design on that powder than anything! Sorry to hear that you don’t love it.
        I know what you mean – we always want what we don’t have! 😉

        1. Yes, that’s true! The design is amazing, as always with catrice (and essence). Yes, that is totally true. I see people always writing the most wonderful things about make-up brands I can’t get here! (the struggle)

  2. What an impressive collection you have! And 3 of my favorite things…..I’m been more obsessive about blushes these days and I just want to try a little bit of all of yours lol Ah all the choices, it’s like being in heaven! So basicallllyyy if I ever need to get my make up done, I know who I’m calling 😉 hahah

      1. Oh lol, just seeing your ps. They used to, well, I used to do some of their makeup but since I went studying, there aren’t coming much friends in my house lately. But they still comment really sweet under my instagram pictures if I make another one of my makeup, hihi xxx

    1. Hahaha, you’re comment made a big smile on my face! Thanks for that, you can always call me girl, and maybe I come, if you don’t life that far away ;). I’m so curious about your ‘3 favorite things’. What are those? xx

  3. Hey Anne, I don’t usually comment on makeup pages such as this, but I saw that you did take a look at one of my posts earlier and liked it which was so awesome. You have quite the makeup collection, even though I’ll never understand it because I’m a guy, and I don’t wear makeup…or do i… LOL. Great post, and I’ll keep an eye out on your blog 😉 Have a nice day!

    1. Hello, thank you for your nice comment! I love collecting makeup that’s why I have a lot. All the boys I know, don’t understand it either so I’m not surprise haha. I will definitely take a look on your blog again! Wish you a nice day too!
