Mascara -Yves Saint Laurent - Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking Mascara

Great mascara! Gives me volume, lenght and curl like I have not seen with any other mascara ( dior, lancome, clinique, benefit, loreal etc). I like the wetness as it gives you time to work with it and add more layers. You will need to use a seperate lash comb otherwise it gets too clumpy. It does not smudge, flake or run. I did not like the original faux cils as it was way too dry and gave me racoon eyes, Shocking is soooo much better.

This bronzer is wonderful!! However, it only lasted two months vs other bronzers liker Dior, Chanel etc. Probably because it is loose powder instead of pressed. So from a fiscal point of view not worth it... From a OMG IT MAKES MY SKIN GLOW point of view YES YES YES Cannot say enough good things about this product, apart from price and longevity....
Very nice colour, but it makes your lips dry and settles into grooves in the lips. Not worth the price!! Kanebo's shine lipstick is way better!!
I actually use this as a bronzer. I bought golden caramel 04. I find it easy to use the colours separately with the enclosed brush. I find it to be a bit sparkly when all mixed together, as the highlighter has quite a bit of glitter in it. I only use the highlighter sparingly. If I were to use it as a foundation my colour would be 032. If you like mineral makeup this is the best one I've tried
Crap mascara, do not buy! Does absolutely nothing... I am going back to my trusted Kanebo
Primer/ Corrector -Yves Saint Laurent - Matt Touch - Touche Mate - Oil-Free Primer

This works!! Goes on super smooth and prevents your face from getting shiny. Prevents makeup from settling in pores and fine lines. I have typical combo skin with a shiny T zone. Will defo buy again.
So far i'm undecided on this product. Can't seem to work it properly as a smudge eyeliner. I'll try applying with a thin brush as suggested by other reviewers I'll write an update after I've tried it some more. UPDATE: Really bad... Urban Decay so much better!

Made me look 10 years older!! Settles into wrinkles, even fine lines to age you beyond belief. Not very practical packaging either Will not repurchase If you are looking for a loose powder try Chantecaille - it makes your skin glow and does not accentuate lines
Mascara -Kanebo - Sensai Mascara 38 C (Volumising)

I really like this mascara; no smudges, no flaking (can even sleep with it...) and is easy to work with. I find it helpful to remove excess mascara on a tissue before applying. You can apply several layers and the brush is good for shaping/curling the lashes. I used to wear the original 38 years ago, and I find this better in terms volume and curling effect. Only downside, not a very nice packaging, but hey that does not really matter ;-)
Treatments (Eye) -La Prairie - Cellular Eye Contour Cream

This is the best eye cream I have ever tried! I noticed a difference after just a few applications. I generally tend to have slightly dry skin, so this cream might be to heavy for oilier skins. I've tried Decleor, Dior, Philosophy creams (and cheaper Boots creams) in the past, but none of them have worked It makes the eye area very soft and lines are less obvious. It seems to give the eye area a more "relaxed" look. I will repurchase!! Now I really want to try the face cream as well If you have slightly dry/combo skins, this cream is perfect. Nice fragrance and I really like the packaging, not that that really matters ;-)

I find this product to work best if you only use it once in a while. If I use it for several months my skin seems to stop responding to the ingredients It works wonders though if your skin is stressed out. I typically use it for one month a year or so
What a crap product, dont waste your money on this product Waaaay to sparkly.
This is truly a horrible product. It ended up around my eyes flaking all day long. Never try this product, go for Kanebo 38 instead
