I love the application of OPI polishes and that they last for about a week without chipping. This colour is a nice nude with a bit of a lilacy tinge which looks great in the bottle but not on my nails. I've only worn it once and I didn't like it so I'm probably giving it away to a friend who might enjoy it.
I like the minty colour but I hate the fact that it's chips within 2 days of wearing it. This seems to be the issue with all of China Glaze polishes I own.
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Bois De Rose
miamiamaria 4/7/2013 7:51:00 AM
On my lips it's a dupe for Chanel Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle which is an amazing everyday colour that does not wash my face out but isn't too over the top. I really love the colour of Bois De Rose but it just won't last on my lips, I don't know what's up with that as it's supposed to be long lasting. When it fades it leaves the most ugly lines around my lips as if I had used a lipliner. It also dries my lips. I'm so bummed! The smell is a bit rosy/fig-like and I quite like it but since the upkeep of this lippie is way too difficult for me I never wear it. The packaging looks nice but is flimsy and cheap when I hold it.
I love this awesome vibrant pink colour from the Euro Centrale collection! It does not screech I HAVE NEON PINK NAILS, so I feel comfortable wearing it in an academic setting but it's also vibrant enough to make me feel really happy and ready for summer. Application is really good- I could get away with one coat, 2 coats is even better. It lasts about a week without chipping (sans topcoat) and the consistency is lovely and creamy- not too runny nor thick. I suggest checking out swatches on google as I am terrible at describing colours. Edit- I really enjoy looking at different colours on Wikipedia and I think the colour most like this nailpolish is French Rose. :)
Hair -Unlisted Brand - MACADAMIA Natural Oil - Healing Oil Treatment

It's a great hair oil which I use as a treatment before a shower. The smell is amazing and the effect it gives is too. I don't use it for everyday smoothing of the hair- I find it to be a bit too greasy, but as I said it works great as a mask. Makes my hair silky and soft.
I have this in #5 fuschia temptation. I love the subtle smell and the creamy texture! Aah, it's so smooth! I also love the flashy packaging and that it lasts all day on me AND it's super buildable- the colour is really intense but I wear only a small dot to make it look natural. I would repurchase this and I really want to try some other colours aswell. Too bad that there's not much product in the package.
My fav mascara ever is Lancôme's Definicils but this one is also really nice, although the effect is different. Hypnôse drama gives me chunky, long and dramatic lashes that frame my eyes nicely. It's not waterproof but it can handle rain quite well and it doesn't flake, which is of course good (and expected due to the price). I will probably repurchase it one day but I have tons of other mascaras I want to try out.
I am MAC NW15 so I had to search hard and long for a colour match- 10 lumière and it was still a tad too dark. I loved the sleek packaging but unfortunately I dropped it after a week of use and it broke! It was a surprise to me because my MAC powders fall like once a day and they've never fallen apart. It lasts on my skin for quite some time ang gives a lovely nonchalky finish but it doesn't offer great oil control. I apply it with a brush and use the sponge for touchups. The mirror is a great size!
I wrote a review for the original one (under a wrong topic, but whatever) and the bottom line was- I loved it. However, what's up with the fragrance free one? It just isn't as sticky and thus effective. I don't like it! It doesn't work for anything- chapped lips, nicks on skin. It just sits on the skin for like a minute or two and then I feel the need to reapply which was not the case with the original one. I regret buying the fragrance free version. Edit- the rating is for the original version of the cream.
The scrub makes my skin feel really soft- I do use quite a generous amount. The packaging (in the tub) is okay, it's easy to use. I am not a fan of the smell, though. Luckily it doesn't linger on my skin for too long. I probably will repurchase it but it's not a staple.
I use it to refresh my face during the day, make my powder foundation look less powdery and before my face creams/treatments in the evening. It's nice but I haven't noticed any less redness so it's not a miracle worker for me. I will and have repurchased this purely for the refreshing qualities.
The mascara lengthens and separates my lashes really well. I never get compliments on my lashes (they're sort of mediocre and shortish) but with this mascara I do- "Which mascara are you using? Your lashes don't have any clumps" I wouldn't say it's buildable though, as it does tend to get a bit clumpy after a few coats. It does not flake on me and even though it's not waterproof, it handles a few tears and rain really well. I will repurchase this mascara after I've tried the Diorshow and if that one isn't any better.
I buy the 200 ml version through my esthetician because I love it! I use it at least twice a week, but sometimes (when I'm feeling spa-y) even more often. The benefits- It calms my red face and makes my acne disappear quicker. It doesn't dry out my skin but it draws out the oil and I love the subtle smell of it. Gatineau products are always a bit pricey but I have loved them all.
It looks gorgeous in the bottle but unfortunately I hate it on my nails. I've tried it over several colours but I just don't like it. Plus the heart-shaped glitter is a pain to apply and the polish seems really gloopy.
I love this! It made my bathwater pink and created a ton of bubbles. The lovely rosy smell stayed on my body and the most important (for me)- the bath left my skin feeling soft. I will repurchase this and I will try the apple bubbleroon as well.
