I'll start off by saying I don't have very severe dark circles. I find many concealers to be too cakey and full coverage for me. Skinflash is the definition of perfection. Although it is a highlighter, it functions perfectly for the purpose of concealing my dark circles. It covers just enough and looks so natural that it would be almost impossible to detect you have any concealer on. It is incredibly hydrating (even more so than my eye cream) and is a dream to blend. It also has a pleasent scent. Like many of the highlighters on the market, this comes in a twist pen with a brush and fits into a lovely pouch. The twist function can be a little annoying at times (you twist a few times and nothing comes out and suddenly the product oozes out.) It can be solved after a few uses though. This highlighter comes in four shades and I find 003 to be the perfect match for me. The only major downfall to this product is that it is on the pricier side. However, I can overlook that as this is the only concealer I have been satisfied with.

I've used many eye makeup removers in the past and this one by far wins in every category. - It removes everything, waterproof and non-waterproof without leaving a single trace of makeup behind. -It is extremely gentle and does not irritate the eyes. I don't wear contacts but I cannot see how this would irritate anyone's eyes. (It's THAT gentle.) -The less ingredients a product has, the better! There are 10 listed with Sensibio. When I take my makeup off with this, I don't even wash my face again because it feels like water on my skin. I apply my moisturizer straight away. -It doesn't leave a greasy film or blur up my eyes. -Great value for money, considering it's not a drugstore nor a high end product. Right in the middle. There are 3 different sizes to choose from (I love having options.) In my opinion, this blows Lancome's Bifacil out of the water! I'm so thankful for the people that recommended this to me. In turn, I highly recommend this cleanser to everyone.
I snatched this up as soon as I saw it in store and I'm SO glad I did. It's like bubblegum goodness in a jar. The product itself is mainly sugar and doesn't have a lot of slip, which is why I thought it wouldn't work that well. BUT it does an amazing job at softening my lips. I don't have very dry, cracked or peeling lips to begin with but my lip balms moisturize so much better after using this product. I just slather on the particles, rub my lips together and get a huge kick out of licking this scrub, which tastes AMAZING. The smell lasts on my lips for several hours and the more I sniff it, the more I want to use it up. I highly recommend this product if you want soft, smooth, lickable (literally) lips.
This is my hands-down favorite lipstick. Yes, the color itself is sheer but I think that's what makes this lipstick so beautiful. You can build it up for a more dramatic, in your face color or leave it as it is, a MLBB. On my olive skin, this is a deep berry that instantly lifts my face. I have gotten SO many compliments when wearing this lipstick and guys have even told me "my lips look nice". It feels good on my lips, definitely not drying and quite long lasting too. It has a waxy finish which I actually really like as it doesn't look heavy on your lips, even if you enjoy layering it. I think you really have to know about NARS's lipstick finishes before you go out and purchase this. The sheerness of the product might disappoint some but definitely not me. Will repurchase over and over!
