This is my favourite blush from Sleek. As shocking as it looks, it can be used everyday with ease for NC20-25! I am sad that this is a limited edition. I should have bought a back-up, but then, it lasts forever so that is probably unnecessary. But Sleek should really make it permanent.
Eye Shadow -Giorgio Armani - Eyes to Kill Intense 08 Champagne
Vittoriak 12/4/2011 10:26:00 AM
I absolutely love this eyeshadow. I have got four GA Eyes to Kill Intense and this is the one I use the most. I bought it in an airport randomly because I had nothing to do and I was obsessed with these shadows at the time. Since this is quite a subtle colour, comparatively, I use it the most. And the shimmer doesn't flatten out my eyes and it doesn't make them overly sparkly, so it is good for someone who is in a hurry in the morning ESPECIALLY because you can just apply it with your fingers and you can just use it on its own. I don't really need a primer or another colour to put the look together. This eyeshadow makes my morning easier.
This is the best eyeliner ever, from the brush to the formula. The brush is fine enough and the product can come through easily, unlike the MAC and YSL ones. The liner stays on my eyes for 12hrs+. I use it everyday ever since I got it. And it is cheap. I love love love it.
Eyeliner -Yves Saint Laurent - Easy Liner For Eyes
Vittoriak 11/25/2011 10:32:00 AM
Yes, it looks beautiful and I love the brush application, but this thing is useless and expensive. It can produce a fine line, but the product can hardly come out. The formula itself is not black enough for my taste. I got it in black. But if you test it on your hand, it is actually a very dark green/blue. It smudges on me horribly, leaving me panda eyes. I will NEVER buy it again.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Pro Longwear Eye Shadow in Sweet Satisfaction
Vittoriak 10/30/2011 1:38:00 PM
I really like this eyeshadow. This colour is a very very very very close dupe to my favourite limited edition NARS eyeshadow duo - Rajasthan (The left colour). Now I don't have to worry about using that up! It don't know if it was particularly longwearing because MAC shadows generally do not crease on me anyways and I wouldn't apply eyeshadow without a primer. For that, I can't say anything about it.
Treatments -The Body Shop - Seaweed clarifying night treatment
Vittoriak 10/28/2011 1:28:00 PM
Oh sweet lord this smells like fish. Yuck.
This is such a beautiful and unique colour, especially for a brand like NYX! This is not sticky yet pigmented and it does not dry up my lips. And it is so pretty with a bit of reflective blue sheen!
I got it in 602 Marrone Bronzo (meaning brown bronze) over the summer in Italy. This is a dark brown colour with a tint of bronze in it and it is very intense and not matte. I asked for a long-lasting eye pencil and the SA recommended it to me. I have greasy lids and liners smudge on me very easily. But this really does not smudge, does not transfer at all on my eyes, both on the upper and lower lids. It is a little tough to get this on the waterline, but it can stay put there for at least 6, 7 hours. This is a brilliant find. I wish there were Kiko stores everywhere!
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Carbon Black Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner
Vittoriak 10/8/2011 11:53:00 AM
I like everything except for the most important thing - the colour. Look, the application is perfect, and so as the formula, in the sense that it is smudge-proof and waterproof. But the black colour is simply not intense enough. It is just not black enough for my taste. So I will keep on my search for the best black liquid eyeliner.
Eyeliner -Cle de Peau - Intensifying Cream Eyeliner
Vittoriak 9/21/2011 12:11:00 PM
Cle de Peau products are usually pretty nice, but this is not one of them. It transferred and also smudges within 4 hours! How disappointing! I would prefer the Bobbi Brown one so much more.
It is not the most special blush on earth but it is essential to have something like this in my collection, to just to have something to go with bold eyes or lips. It gives a natural flush to my cheeks. One thing is just that it is not peachy at all. Why on earth does MAC give it this name?
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin
Vittoriak 9/4/2011 2:12:00 PM
I don't really like the Original Primer Potion. But I really love this one! It acts as the perfect primer when you want some shimmers on your eyes. I don't even need another primer underneath despite it is coloured and its staying power is even better than the original one.
Moisturizers -MAC - Lightful Deep Ultramoisture Cream
Vittoriak 8/11/2011 5:42:00 PM
I really enjoy this moisturiser! I have oily t-zone but the other part of my skin is normal, so it has always not been easy for me to find a moisturiser that I like. This one doesn't only smell lovely, the texture is light and my skin absorbs it very quickly yet I can actually feel the moisture is kept in my skin. It gets me through the humid summer in Hong Kong, as well as the dry Italian summer. What else can I say? I love it!
Eye Shadow -Revlon - Matte Eyeshadow in Vintage Lace
Vittoriak 8/10/2011 5:20:00 PM
It is a very decent product for the price. I usually use it as a brow highlight when I wear shimmery eyeshadows and don't want to add more shimmer onto my face. I haven't tried it on the lid though, but I may. Oh, I also have one more use for it, which is to use it as a setting powder when I put on a ultra-pale/white foundation (for theatre or Halloween, of course). It makes the skin looking very polisehed, smooth and flawless!
Eyeliner -Kiss Me - Kiss Me Heroine Make Impact Liquid Eyeliner
Vittoriak 8/10/2011 3:09:00 PM
I am really impressed by this eyeliner. My previous favourite was MAC's Superslick liquid liner. It stays on my eyes rather well expect my tear duct area gets moist easily, especially when I yawn. (And hey, I am only human, I cannot stop myself from doing it, can I?) And then the tiny part on the tear duct area would dissolve and that bothers me. But this eyeliner literally does not move at all. Does not transfer on my hooded eyes. And the applicator allows me to draw fine lines right on top of my lashes. I really enjoy using it. Definitely will repurchase.
