This lipstick is a MLBB shade; it's supposed to be a cream (no shimmer), but on me it looks a little bit frosty, which is not my favourite finish :/ So I have to be in the mood to wear it. I find that, if I don't moisturize and exfoliate my lips prior to wearing this, it makes my lips awfully dry. It wears for about three or four hours whithout eating and drinking. It's an okay lipstick, but there's much better lipsticks out there.
Mascara -Essence - I Love Extreme - Volume Mascara

Good mascara, does what it's supposed to do: lenghtens and gives volume. You can't beat it at this price point. The brush is not the best, especially for those who have small eyes, but it's a minor flaw :)
I got this as a sample, and I'm glad I didn't pay anything for it, because, for me, the hype is totally unjustified. The best thing about this mascara is the brush, which is really good. The fomula, not so much; it makes my lashes stick together, and doesn't lenghten so much. It definitely performs way worse than my €3 Esssence mascara. For the record, I have long, curved, thick lashes, so making them look good is not so hard. At this price point, I was expecting more.
Primer/ Corrector -Too Faced - Primed and Poreless Powder

Love it. It can be used as a primer and a setting powder, and works beautifully at both. Minimizes pores, keeps oil at bay, fells silky on he skin and doesn't look cakey. Packaging isn't the best, as some powder can fly when you open the lid of you're not careful, but anyway, it's a winner :)
Concealers -Bourjois - Healthy Mix Correcting Concealer

I really like this, especially for covering acne blemishes; it is a bit dry on its own for the under eye area, so if I'm going to use it for dark circles, I mix it with a tiny bit of a moisturizing foundation (MUFE F&B) and it works fine for me. I might repurchase, but I want to try other concealers :)

It covers well and smells heavenly, but sadly it broke me out; everytime I tried it, I got a bunch of tiny red pimples on my chin. Oil control is ok, but it looks cakey and obvious on my skin.
This is my signature scent. It is soft, warm and sweet, not a very complex scent, but I like it anyway :) On me, it's musk, amber, and powdery caramel, much more mature than most sweet fragances, and lasts about 8 hours. Sillage is close to the skin; only people that get close to you can smell it (that is, if you don't overspray).
This has made my dry, damaged, unruly hair much more soft, healthy, and straight. I even had people comment on how nice my hair looked and ask if I did something to it (nope, just regular shampoo and this conditioner). I also like that it is cruelty free and made from natural ingredients, and smells amazing (and the smell lasts a little bit on the hair). Now I want to try the shampoo from the same line.
