I've always avoided eyeliners because I'm not able to put it properly. Midnight in Paris was on sale so I decided to buy it for a silly price. Wow - even without a proper brush, I managed to achieve wonderful line that stayed and stayed for hours. Midnight in Paris is really black and I'm longing to try the brown one, but I can't find it anywhere :( Amazing thing, would definitely buy again and again.

Creamy and nicely pigmented. Although - on eyelids it's not pink, it's golden. I like the fact that you can chose what effect you get - subtle one with one or two layers, or shiny and metallic one with 3 layers and more. I apply it with my fingertips.
Creamy and pigmented. Colour is gorgeous and you can easily control the effect - I prefer subtle one, just a thin layer, but you can build it and get metallic and very shiny effect. I apply it with my fingertips, but I guess the brush would be good too.
Good for making your lashes thicker. Cons - messy, a bunch of fall-out on my cheeks.
Solid basic drops. It speeds up the drying the process - it takes 1 minute for surface and about 5 to 10 for deeper layers. Oily and a bit messy to apply, but otherwise good.
Amazing color (bronze gleam) - and I like the fact that it's very thin and thus precise. But it's too hard, my eyelid hurts while I'm applying it :(
The only true red blush I've managed to find in drug stores. It looks scary in the pan but on cheeks it looks so natural and beautiful, but use it with light hand or you'll look like a clown.

Huge brush, I was shocked when I opened it for the first time and I wondered for minutes how to use it without poking my eyes out. But it gives long and thick lashes without clumps. Only problem is that it's pretty messy, I always end up with with smudges on my upper lid. And yes, it doesn't come sealed, which is stupid.
Highlighters -Essence - Breaking Dawn Shimmer Powder - Bella’s Secret

My first highlighter, so I can't compare it with others. It's golden and shimmery, but not over the top and it gives very nice and subtle sheen. Maybe a bit too yellowish for my taste.
I was on a mission to find an exfoliator without beads and there's no Dermalogica in my country so I decided to try this one. And I can't say it's worth the money. It is messy to take it off and I don't think that rubbing my skin to get this stuff off is better than scrubbing it gently with some other exfoliator. Plus the results aren't great, my skin don't look or feel much better after this one.

I don't have sensitive skin, but if I keep this on my face longer than 10 seconds, my skin turn red and irritated. And I don't have that problem with the rest of the serum vegetal3 line... Ingredients: aqua, paraffinum liquidum, glycerin, ethylhexyl cocoate, coco-caprylate/caprate, centaurea cyanus water, sorbitin stearate, ceteth-20, propylene glycol, cetyl alcohol, carbomer, parfum, methylparaben, sorbic acid, sodium hydroxide, hydrolized pectin, allantoin, ethylparaben, propylparaben, tetrasodium edta
Great foundation - you can get light or heavy coverage, whatever you want. It stays well, skin looks fresh and glowy (not shiny). The only problem I have with it is the poor color choice. I got 200 as lightest, but it's tad dark for me and a bit pinkish. I would stick to this one forever if they bring out some neutral light shade.
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Professional Mineral Powder Brush #45

Amazing brush! I have Shiseido perfect foundation brush, but I reach out for this one more often. Probably because it's more versatile - I use it for pressed powder, loose powder, liquid foundation, blush. It's not cheap, but it's totally worth it, I'm even thinking of buying another one tomorrow to keep it in my purse.
Pros: - Nice tender smell - Easy to use (but you must use it all at once) just spray it, massage it in and wait for half an hour - Plenty of product Cons: - Poor grey coverage, barely any - Light burning sensation on scalp - If you need to do your roots only, you won't be able to use just a half or third of a bottle without additional bottles and measuring bowls (because original product bottles are not transparent) Verdict - not for me, I need small amount of haircolor just to cover my grey patches, which is impossible with this one. But if you want to dye your hair and do it easy, try it.
Very thick, thicker than some creams :) But great product, no doubt. Paraben, silicone, color and mineral oil free, which is good for skin and it removes all the makeup, leaving your skin soft and supple. I leave it for few minutes and then wash it off or pour it on cotton pad and gently sweep my face. I haven't tried it on my eyes though.
