WOW. This is truly the best foundation I came across in a long time. I have the shade in 31 Amber Pâle, which is perfect for my skin in winter. This is a moisturising foundation and it glides through the skin so smoothly. A little truly goes a long way since I only need less than a pump. The coverage is buildable and it gives much nice and healthy glow. I have oily-combo skin but I think my skin works well with it. I usually set it with a powder. Highly recommended. I love it so much. SO MUCH.
It's a nice scent but I am not crazy about it. It's one of those perfume that I can live with or without it. The idea of the bottle is nice, but what's the deal with the rubber petals?
I wish I could love it because it is so expensive. I love the scent but it is just not moisturising. It works for the first half hour and then it just dries my lips out horribly. The SA told me it is the same with the pot over and I chose it because I think it is more portable in a tube. But I guess it isn't after reading the reviews here. I don't think I will ever repurchase again.
Shampoo -Organix - Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil shampoo

This shampoo dries my hair out despite the fact that I have oily hair. I am impressed with myself that I managed to finish the whole bottle. The penetrating oil of the same line is much better. I will never repurchase this shampoo.
This is a fantastic nail polish. This colour is perfect for fall and winter and the quality is fantastic. Yes, it is not the most long lasting nail polish in the market but it lasts fairly long (begins to chip on the third/forth day, depending how much housework I have to do, without a top coat). But hey, I have OPI, Essie, Bourjois and Chanel nail polishes and the wear time is not that different. This costs next to nothing compare to a Chanel one, so I have no complains for it. Absolutely love it. Definitely will repurchase.
Blush -Make Up For Ever - HD Microfinish Blush in #4 Walk of Shame

I just can't get this blush to work on me. Whenever I try to get some of the product out, it comes out too dry and I can't work it at all. Nice colour, but it is a shame that I can't manage it.
I love this gloss. I have it in 124 Rose Rododendro and it is a glassy sheer pink gloss. It smells great and it is moisturising. It is exactly like the Fluo de Pop glosses from Chanel. These kinds of glosses are not made to be very pigmented but to give you a beautiful tint of colour to give this shiny healthy impression to your gives. If you like this kind of gloss, you would like it.
Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees - Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme
Vittoriak 12/8/2012 4:39:00 PM
First of all, I don't really think that putting hand cream into a small jar is that good of an idea. This product is quite moisturising but it takes too much time absorb into the skin. Its scent is ok but it is not entirely pleasing. There are so many different hand creams out there. So I don't think I will repurchase it.
Gels/Soaps -Bath and Body Works - Japanese Cherry Blossom antibacterial hand gel

Unlike other antibacterial hand gels that I have tried, this one doesn't dry my hands out. And I love the smell! I have repurchased and stocked up already!
Moisturizers -Bobbi Brown - Extra SPF 25 Moisturizing Balm
Vittoriak 12/3/2012 11:57:00 PM
Pros: Has SPF 25 - pretty high for a day cream No sunscreen smell - actually smells really great Good for dry skin Cons: Feels a bit oily, even for combo skin on the dry side, not good for applying makeup afterwards Too expensive - just not a justified price for a non-miracle product Hum, I don't think I will repurchase.
This just unfortunately does not work on me at all. I like bronzing products specially in winter because my face gets pale again very easily while my limbs and body don't. I tried using it as a foundation or a primer, but they did not went well. The greasy feeling is just horrible despite the fact I am ok with silicon face products. It feels oily and it doesn't do anything for my skin. It has no coverage and it does not even provide a slight tint of colour. So, no, I do not like it at all.
There are two versions of this dry shampoo, I believe, one for oily/fine hair, and one for dry hair, I guess? I got the former and I think it is a pretty good product! I have black hair myself but I don't think it ever makes my hair grey. It does make your hair feel better. I think it is very important to REALLY SHAKE it before spraying and don't over apply it.
Look, I am not a big fan of Juicy Couture. I don't like pink and I don't like the style of their clothes. But the thing is this perfume is so good that I managed to put down my dislike for this brand and buy a big bottle of this perfume! It has amazing staying powder and it just smells so good. It's a bit fruity and it is great for summer. But hell, I like it so much I just put it on whenever.
Eyeliner -Physicians Formula - Eye booster eyeliner + serum
Vittoriak 11/13/2012 1:45:00 AM
This is a fantastic eyeliner. I am currently using the brown one (since I don't always want a harsh line) and I have already purchased the ultra black one already. A lot of eyeliners smudge on me but this one doesn't at all After 15 hours, it's still there! The applicator makes it very easy to draw the eyeline precisely. I love it.
These eyeliners came in 14 colours and I picked two up, 107 Blue Majorelle and 102 Bronzo. They are definitely the best colour liquid eyeliners I have ever used. Not only that the colours are vibrant, they are absolutely longlasting. I love the applicator because it is pointy and not too hard and not too soft. It makes applying eyeliner very easy. Moreover, the product wouldn't change colour and mix up with the eyeshadow that I already put on the lid. I love them and I am hoping to pick up more!
