AH I really... I mean really tried to like this product, because everyone seems to love it. I might try out some other Revlon foundation though. PRO's - Feels quite nice on skin - Pleasant smell (I think they changed that) - Medium coverage CON's - Oxidies on me >:( - Can be hard to blend, must be quick - Leaves my skin somewhat oily - Not long lasting - Can look a little cakey/flakey on dry spots

PRO - none CON - So greasy and smeary - Very chemical smell - Medium shade is very orange and oxidied on me - Very powdery finish - Very very little coverage - Only 2 shades available, both on the extreme side - Hard to blend nicely Massive no-no product, don't waste your money on it.
At first I liked this product, it seemed perfect for my medium-oily skin. But after using it for a while I changed my mind: PRO - Really light-weight - No smell what so ever - Matte finish for the first maybe 60 minutes after applying CON - Powdery finish - Provides no moisture at ALL - Very hard to blend in nicely (!) - My skin still gets oily in my T-zone - Barely any coverage (I use it now every now and then to colour correct my face a little, but not good for covering even small blemishes) - Not pleasant wear, skin gets pretty "tight" after applying it. - Horrible packaging, everytime I open mine, cream squirts out of the tube. Such a waste!

First of all, I got rashes all over my legs from shaving with this razor, sooo itchy. The invention itself is brilliant, really. But not economical at all! Once you use up the soap bars, which happens way to quickly, the razor is pretty useless. So you have to chuck it out, eventhough the actual blades still work perfectly. Such a shame... the soap bars should last longer.
This one is my favourite of all Venus razors. It has 5 individual blades, therefore it makes shaving super easy and the result is smooth and clean. Great product and worth the money!
This was my first Mac product... aaaand it didn't work for me at all. No matter how little I applied it creased on me (my lids are a little oily though). It also dried out quite fast, so I had to chuck it out. Too pricey for what it is, really. Too bad, so sad, I really wanted to like it.
I hate to say this, but I'm so disappointed with this product. After hearing so much about it I decided to get the Bad girl and Au Naturel. The colours look gorgeous in the pot. But once you put them on they stay for maybe 1 or 2 hours. They don't apply evenly (very few do), and most of the shimmery/glittery ones are either extremly powdery or chuncky. Plus they looked way diffrent on the website. Overall, I still really want to like them. Sadly, I really really don't.
OH dear, I remember when this first came out and everyone was talking about it. I didn't really know any other foundations so I used this. Now.... from all the foundations I've ever tried, this has definitely been the worst. It's like smearing semi-dry clay all over your face, it oxydised, looked all blotchy and dried out my combo skin like nothing else ever did. Can't get any worse than this, really.

I used this product maybe a year ago, I loved it. But because I like to try out new things, I moved on. I recently bought it again and I fell back in love. It's such a refreshing sliiightly grainy cream, that really wakes you up in the mornings. Whenever my skin looked dull I used it as a mask (feels and looks like a clay mask), and after washing it off my skin felt super smooth, awake and clean. Love, love, love this!

I got this when it was on sale a looong time ago, and I'm still not even half way through. They're kinda expensive but they last you a lifetime. I use the taupe colour on a daily basis, it's just gorgeous. Not much of a fan of the orange/golden and rose colour though. They apply quite evenly and stay on all day long.
This was hands down the worst liquid eyeliner I've ever tried. It's a greyish-black weird colour. The tip is quite hard, which makes applying the product a nightmare. The lasting power is seriously horrid. I asked the sales assistant about it and she just said it's meant to be that way, "very easy to smudge and rub off." Such a waste of money in my opinion.
It is so so thick, which makes it a bit hard to apply. The product also dries very fast, leaving the skin "tense-feeling". This mask is suitable for the hotter months of the year, when my skin get oilier. But in winter, an absolute no-go that leaves my skin dry, unless I cover it with several layers of moisturiser after using it.

I was so excited to try this out, because especially in summer my skin tends to get quite oily. The smell is an absolute no-go, but you get used to it. The product has somewhat of a cooling effect on the skin, which I really liked. It dries quite fast, but leaves your skin very dry and "tense-feeling". The packaging is a fail too, you have to double check if the lid closed properly otherwise you'll end up with a mess in your bag.... talking from experience.

At first I really liked this "cleanser" (I used it as a toner though). It has a very strong orangy smell to it. I have combination skin, so I thought this would be perfect for me. It stung my face when I applied it and dried out my skin at some spots. So I read the ingredients list and noticed that almost half of the ingredients are either alcohol or perfume, hence the drying effect. Might aswell just rub ethanol on my face next time...
Eye Shadow -Kiko Cosmetics - Highly Pigmented Eye Shadow

I got to pick up some of Kiko's eyeshadows when I was in Italy. I was so excited to try them out. I got number 233 and 234, both cool brown tones for autumn. They're fairly decent pigmented and apply nicely. The packaging is a bit of a miss though. The lid is made out of a "milky" plastic, which makes it quite hard to figure out the colour when just looking at it (when closed). Definitely going to get some more next time though. EDIT: Worst eye shadows ever made! The colour does NOT stay on what so ever, fades very very easily. And it's quite a pain in the butt to apply as it's not easy to blend well. Thankfully I only own 2 shades. Such a no-no.
