Masks -Mario Badescu - Azulene Calming Mask

I have sensitive skin and sometimes, my face hurts. This abilene mask is my lifesaver. I always keep a jar in my bathroom. The second I put this on my skin, I feel relief and my skin is left calm and moisturized. This is one of my must haves. and it is not expensive. well worth buying.
Mario Badescu is an all natural line.

Hair Treatments -Moroccanoil - Restorative Hair Mask

on 10/10/2017 4:09:00 AM

PRO: I have had very good results with this and even had other women ask me what I use on my hair.
it makes my hair shiny, strong and it feels good. Cuts the frizz too. You don't have to use a ton of this-- about a tablespoon or less takes care of my past shoulder length hair. It is too expensive to waste.
NOTE: this is not a hair conditioner. You MUST use hair conditioner after you rinse this out. if you don't, your hair will be impossible to comb out and it will feel like STRAW. I think a lot of people who left bad reviews did not use conditioner afterwards.
CONS: this morrocanoil line is way, way overpriced. This stuff is just too expensive. But I bite the bullet and pay $50 for it because it works well.

Moisturizers -Nuxe - Creme Prodigieuse

This moitsturizer is easy to apply, doesn't make my face oily. UNFORTUNATELY, this breaks me out :( if you have acne-prone sensitive skin, I don't think this one's for you, maybe it was caused by that strong smell ?? Makes me wonder if it's really safe


Eyeliner -Charlotte Tilbury - The Feline Flick in Panther

Very highly recommended. I have used every brand, every type of eyeliner. Ι have had an excellent experience with this- to be honest the negative reviews were a big surprise. It's a jet black colour on the first coat, it's not too liquid but doesn't dry out too quickly either. It applies like a dream thanks to the precise felt tip. Both cat flick eyes are done in 30 seconds (crazy!). It doesn't snag on the skin (yes, after 35 that's actually a thing). It stays put thoughout the day, but somehow washes off easily, no residue. A complete hero product. I don't mind the higher price for this product's performance.

Moisturizers -TheFACEShop - Yehwadam Pure Brightening Emulsion

foto

This was an impulse buy. Although the results are not overnight-dramatic, I didn’t expect it to since I only wanted a light moisturizer to wear comfortably at home or under my makeup. I can see my skin gradually clearing up and the brightening effect is definitely there. A week of using this and I got a lot of compliments from colleagues saying that I’m glowing! While I like this very much, I don’t think I’ll be buying the rest of items in the line because my skin doesn’t like many layers of skincare. While the scent of this is very pleasant for me, it can be a little overwhelming for those who do not like fragrance in their skincare. The formula absorbs into my skin so fast and stays there comfortably without breaking me out or sweating off like some of the other Korean skincare. I normally use Clinique DD Gel before my makeup and I must say I like this emulsion better than Clinique. The glass bottle looks very pretty and sits luxuriously on my counter but needless to say it’s not very travel-friendly. Not an issue for me really because that’s what those travel containers are for. And also, the glass bottle has some kind of chilling effect to the emulsion and it sits comfortably on skin.

Lipstick -MAC - Media lipstick

My HG fall/winter makeup product.I absolutely love this deep wine color.It’s not too purple like Instigator or too red like Diva,it’s a perfect blend of both shades packed in nice satin finish.I love satins for cold weather since mattes really dry my lips out.I pair it with MAC lipliner in Dark out but it would look amazing with Nightmoth as well.All in all gorgeous shade with an amazing formula that is million times easier to apply than mattes are.For a night out I pair it with a bit of NYX lip butter in Black Cherry Tart.For mornings I apply it and blot which leaves gorgeous wine stain.All in all an amazing shade,by far my favourite from Mac.

Hair Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Olaplex No. 3

on 10/10/2017 3:23:00 AM

Before I give my opinion, here are the instructions as I understand it --- you use Olaplex #3 as a pre shampoo treatment. So you put olaplex #3 on your damp hair. leave it on for 15 -30 mins (do not leave it in for hours as this is detrimental to your hair) then shampoo and you MUST condition or your hair will be like straw. Olaplex is NOT a conditioner.

I have dark highlighted hair ($$$$$). the bleaching is making my hair super dry. I have used olaplex #3 a few times at home and while it does leave my hair nice, after a few days , I am absolutely back to the original dry mess. So all this "restructuring" of my hair does not seem to be happening. And this stuff is expensive. quite disappointing. I am not so sure the hype is warranted.

I don't know anything about the science, but I think I prefer the MoroccanOil restorative hair mask (with the orange lid) which makes similar claims about reconstructing the proteins of the hair. This is horribly expensive too but at least I got compliments on my hair when I used it and I think my hair was shinier and felt nicer. again, you must use hair conditioner afterwards or your hair will feel horrible and like straw. This is not a conditioner.

I wish I could see some comparative studies on these 2 products.

Lipstick -MAC - Lustre in Hug Me

on 10/10/2017 3:06:00 AM

I think Hug Me is universally flattering, it looks great on fair to dark skin... I'm nw25 and it works for me.. I have over 25 MAC lipsticks, but only have 2 from the lustre line, and need to get more, because I didn't realize how much I like this finish... I'm 47 yo, so most of my MAC lippies are satin, creme sheen, or amplified finish. I only have a few matte, as It's not really my favorite finish on mature skin, but I will wear a matte lip out at night sometimes. Hug Me is the perfect nudish/taupey brown that doesn't look too brown. Definitely recommend.

Masks -Queen Helene - Mint Julep Masque

Great stuff! I've been using this product for at least 10 years. This mask has the ability to remove the blackheads and the excess oil from my face without over drying the cheek areas. Also it noticeably shrink large pores if kept on overnight. Love it

BB Cream -Skin79 - Super Plus Beblesh Balm Triple Functions UV Interception SPF50+ PA+++ (Vital Orange)

You can get this on ebay for around $20 I love it! It's perfect! I prefer it over the pink because the pink has a weird gray hue even after oxidation
