I have limp and flat hair in general. My hairdresser showed me this little cutie - and I was more than impressed! It works, really, and it pumps up the volume! All you have to do is work it into your roots, fluff up your hair and bang, here the volume comes. The thing you need to be aware is that unless you use a small amount of it this may leave your hair with a sticky-residue feeling…For around $5, you can’t go wrong.
Magic Fix fixes lipstick in place, keeps contours sharp, does not run and leaves no unsightly marks on glasses and teeth. After application you have to let it dry and it burns a bit (alcohol, hmmm), but it absolutely worths it. It doesn't affect the lipstick colour nor texture, but it gives a semi-matte finish. It has a slightly drying affect (-1 lippie), so watch your lips not to get dried after using it and use lipbalm during your beauty sleep. If you are a lipstick addict, this product is a complete must!
Artdeco Fixing Powder is for rub- and waterproof foundation and camouflage. The packaging is smart and nice, it contains a puff as well - which I personally like really much. The powder is translucent, blends well with my fair skin tone as well and stays in place throughout the day. It gives a soft, groomed complexion and fights shine incredibly well. It is a totally trustworthy face powder, I recommend!
First of all, it is NOT translucent at all! I've got fair, porcelain-like skin and on my skin it leaves brown patches here and there, screaming from kilometers that I've got make up on - something I really hate. It doesn't blend with my skin tone at all, although I use a really small amount of it. Pros, that it really gives you a matte finish and fights shine really well throughout the day. But for that price tag (for a drugstore brand) such an awful result... No, no, NO! (Or maybe for far darker, yellow-undertoned skin.)
I used to have semi-permanent 3D eyelash extension for almost 3 years - I definitely regret having placed lash extensions and completely ruining my natural lashes (they were extremely short, light sparse and missing in spots...). I've started to use this serum during the last few months before taking my false lashes off - and this tiny serum didn't let me down. My lashes were even longer and thicker than 3 years ago! They are really light, but nothing a good black mascara can't help. I know it sounds unbelievable for such a price, but it works.
Moisturizers -Lacura - Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream

The very best face cream I've ever tried! Actually, it kicked out the oh-so-beloved La Mer. It didn't broke me out at all, my skin felt instantly softer and firmer and it is a good base for my foundation (I use it every morning, so not as a night cream). It is a little bit gel-like, not thick at all and worked for my friend with acne-prone, oily skin really good as well. The fragrance is a bit flowery but it goes away in a few minutes. Beware of the retinol, you should use suncream before you leave the house! And for the pricetag it can't be beaten. Five lippies, I recommend!
It is a great product for dry skin, or for normal skin with dry patches. It also helps me to heal my wounds and it is useful during the winter to keep your lip smooth. Many people use it as a primer (I've heard the it is great for people with skin problems) but I've personally never tried it as a face primer. But my lipsticks stay longer on if I use cicaplast on my lips first. A very good product, I recommend!
It is a great foundation, gives a semi-matte finish, the coverage is medium. I apply it with a sponge, it blends easily and gives a very natural result. The staying power is really good as well and it is not cakey at all. I only need a pump for my entire face, so a little lasts long for me. My HG, I recommend!
I use this product as a powder, instead of my MAC Skinfinish - and I love it! It doesn't broke me out at all, covers well and don't set to the fine lines. It also gives a semi-matt finish and evens out my skintone. It's a bit pricey, but a little goes long, I recommend!
I'm so in love with this multi-phase concealer! It covers well, blends easily and even out red spots. It is also very moisturizing, no flaking, dry patches after application. You need only a tiny amount to cover the dark circles under your eyes, otherwise it can set to the small wrinkles. I also like the pretty packaging, so small and so chic. My HG, I recommend!
Moisturizers -La Mer - Creme de la mer moisturizer

I really wanted to love this product... But sorry, i can't. After two weeks of usage it broke me out like nothing else before. If you search for a rich moisturizer, take L'occitane Ultra Rich with sheabutter, but don't waste your money for this one.
The very best product I've ever tried against acne. I had clear skin in general but always had only one, but very deep pimple on my nose. Literally ALWAYS - once I've get rid of one, the other one just arrived. My nose was left with scars, red spots and dark marks. But then I was prescribed to Differin and now (2 months later) my problems are simply gone! The first 2 weeks were really hard: itching, flaking, burning, redness... I was a bit worried about how long will it take to get used to this gel. But all the bad effects stopped within 2 weeks. I use it 2:1 mixed with La Roche-Posay Cicaplast, in the evenings (a little bit of Cicaplast is very good against flaking). And now? Smooth, clear skin, even without foundation. Wonderful!
I have a fair, porcelain-like skin with a few red spots, thanks to my kill-all-the-pimples mentality - and I'm absolutely in love with this tiny foundation! Easy to use and results a dewy, sheer and - for me - semi-matt look. The coverage is quite well and your skin will be really soft after using. I fix it with MAC Skinfish and I really like how flawless but still natural my skin looks. The brush is sooo soft and works great with the foundation. The package is so tiny, it fits well to any purse or handbag. As for me, it kicks out my good old Clinique Superbalanced - more natural coverage and three times cheaper by the way. The only problem is, that in the summer it doesn't last that long without primer. Four lippies.

I'm absolutely in love with this little ball: thickening, styling and giving nice smell in one single step without the sticky feeling. Would I purchase this product again? Definitely!
Lovely & decent colour and I love how it smells as well... Definitely my must-have item for my make-up! Plus it doesn't broke me out and lastens for about 10 hours. Thumbs up for Bourjois!
