Urban Decay goes Belgium!

Urban Cosmetics

Finally, after ‘Loreal Group’ aquired the amazing and trendy make up brand ‘Urban Decay’ in 2013.
We Belgian’s can get our hands on their quality products online, from the start of May 2015 thanks to Ici Paris Xl.

From now on we don’t have to travel different country’s to get our favourite stash of make up palettes and dashing it items!

Urban Decay founded by Sandy Lerner, Pat Holmes, Wende Zomnir and David Soward in 1999

Totally conquered the Make up Artist world with their line of 10 lipsticks and 12 nail polishes. Urban Decay inspired the color palette on the urban landscape and so they came up with the Company’s name.


Not only are they always spot on the latest trends, they don’t do animal testing in the creation of its products, the products are guaranteed 100% vegetarian, and every box includes its cruelty free philosophy!
All the brushes are made from synthetic hairs, and they are certified ‘cruelty free by Peta and CCIC ‘Leaping bunny program’, hence the name ‘Karma Brushes’ :)

From end of may 2015 Ici Paris Xl store on the avenue Louise in Brussels will sell it in store.
There is whispered and hopefully this is true! ☺ Soon other Ici Paris XL stores will follow in the footstep of their Brussels sister.

So fire your ‘Urban Decay’ order online or get your best friend on a city trip to Brussels and update your make up necessities from a top brand!


Be set for a dazzling summer!


7even tips for Luscious Lips


How do I get those ‘sultry luscious’ lips? The question is on every girl’s mind…

We care about our faces, skin, bodies, but often forget our lips. Even though with a few tricks and just a few minutes every day you can have ‘sultry luscious lips’ and be the envy of your friends.

These are my 7 tips for luscious lips!

1. After brushing your teeth, use your toothbrush to quickly buff your lips.
They will look more naturally colored because because of increased blood circulation and secondly, it will remove dryness.

2. Stop licking your lips.
This will damage their protective barrier.

3. Drink loads of water.
Good for your entire body and your lips.

4. Buy a good nurturing lip-balm.
Similar to your skin and eyes you need a product that protects, hydrates and nurtures.

I can recommend two excellent products:

– ‘Clarins’ lip and contour – extra firming balm
– ‘Clarins’ instant light and ‘Dermalogica’ lip renewal

5. Protect, protect, protect!
Your lips are very delicate. In summer always use a sun protective lip moisturizer SPF. These days you can find them in glosses, balms and lipsticks. So no excuses! In winter you can use a medicated lip balm with ‘camphor and menthol’

6. Vitamin B deficiency can lead to cracked lips.
Drink and eat lots of milk, eggs, cheese, nuts, fish and whole grains to boost your vitamine B level.

7. Go slow on the ‘matte’ lipsticks
They tend to dehydrate your lips. So don’t wear them all the time!

So now go enjoy your sultry luscious lips and go happy kissing! 😉
