I read the good reviews so i got one. The first thing you have to know about is the smell, it's exactly like my grandma's Medicated Oil, I am serious!!! It's just not something you can consider as a cosmetic product. Bear this in mind before you purchase it. It might be a fascinating find for some people but definitely not for me. However, it doesn't break me out or cause me any problem. It just doesn't do anything for me and is kinda pricy for an essencial balm(instead of a cream, in my opinion). If you have extremly dry lips or skin patches and you are looking for an urgent solution, give it a try. For makeup/skin care products I wouldn't even think about it as it stinks SO MUCH!
This is such a great eyeliner gel! It doesn't smuge at all, lasts very long and gives a nice finish. I will definitely repurchase,though this bottle takes quite a while to finish!

LOVE this product! I suffer from dandruff, which is rather gross, I know. I tried this product, and witnessed noticable improvement. The smell is very decent and pleasant. Maybe just because I am trying something new, but so far, so good. I will repurchase if stays the same before i run out this bottle.
It's easy to apply, very affordable, but it's incredibly gentle, which means it doesn't do anything for you skin(positive & negative). For me it doesn't dry out and doesn't cause me any problem. If you just want some water on your face but do not really expect any other effects, this is for you. For the price I might purchase it again, when I have no issue with my skin. Otherwise nope.
Skincare -L'Oreal - L'ORČAL Men Expert Hydra Energetic Ice Cool Eye Roll On
missdiordior 3/29/2013 11:02:00 AM
I bought this product for my husband. He is not really so into it, so I tried it once when i ran out of my eye cream. It was horrible! The feeling after application was ok, but it doesn't give you anything except for some shining patches! Gross! I'll say it again, it doesn't offer you anything except for making you look cheap and ridiculous!
I had high expectations on this product, after reading those good reviews. However, as a concealer it doesn't do anything, absolutely NO coverage! I still use it as a highlighter, though it's not really highlighting. Pros: cheap, very affordable; doesn't dry out my skin cons: no coverage at all Will not buy again.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Perfection Volumizing Mascara
missdiordior 2/24/2013 10:31:00 AM
I adore all mascaras from Covergirl and this one is no exception. It gives me natural full lashes and yet doesn't clump. But it doesn't provide super long lashes like Volume Exact which is unfortunately discontinued. Anyways an excellent mascara, perfect for daytimes. I will repurchase it.
Liquid -Bourjois - Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation
missdiordior 2/24/2013 10:20:00 AM
This is such an amazing product. I read good reviews on MUA and decided to give it a try, and it turned out to be great! Thank you MUA ladies! It gives a very natural finish and does a bit moisturizing -which i totally adore. The coverage is medium to full and very buidable but you might still need a concealer to achieve flawless skin. The only thing i want to complain about is the color selection. I have very fair skin so i need the color to be light enough - I love how Revlon Colorstay 001 ivory looks on me, but it's somehow cakey. The lightest shade of Bourjois is 51 vanille clair which i found a bit yellow for my own skin tone, but still wearable. I am falling in love with this product, and would 100% recommend it.
I really like the commercial with Blake Lively so I ordered a sample from Gucci. It smells very sophisticated, luxury and elegant, without being too light or too powery, just like the idea from the commercial, which i absolutely love. But it doesn't last long , the smell vanished after 40min or so. I can't imagine reapplying it for several times per day. The bottle design is very nice but the price is way too ridiculous for the product itself. I will not repurchase it.
I got this shampoo as a gift from a contest. I am so glad i tried it, it's so good. It smells very fresh and pleasant. And it did bring some glaze on my hair, not much but there is a noticable difference. It also cleaned very well, the texture is very soft and easy to apply. I will repurchase it.
I am so glad i bought this product. It's soooo good! I have also tried some high-end brands (Dior, Lancome, Chanel)which cost a fortune(they are much more expensive here in Switzerland!) but none of them worked as good as this one! It's currently my HG foundation and I am so grateful everyday that something finally works on me! ****Shade**** I have extremely pale skin and many foundations just make me look orange or just don't match my skintone. They have a very good color selection and 001 ivory fits me perfectly! Fair ladies, i highly recommend it! ****Lasting power**** Why do you think it's called color stay? Seriously, I usually put it on at 6am and take it off only after 10 to 11pm, and it seemed to stay very well. The only confusion is, it seems to stay forever on my skin, so I had to do a lot of cleansing :) Anyway, it's better to stay forever than nothing, i hate to reapply foundations, and with it on, I can basically do whatever i want(maybe not swimming*.*) without worrying about my makeups. ****Application & Texture**** I think it's kind of liquid, which is very nice because my skin tends to get dry in winters. You just need to take a small drop and softly apply it (i usually use my fingertips) into your skin. Make sure to smooth it evenly. It's very easy to apply and it gives a really beautiful matte finish. I sometimes find myself scary because i look more like a vampire than a normal human-being. My skin looks so pale and i am not a bronzer girl, so i normally just end up looking extremely pale and sick. lol ****Price&Packing**** I would never buy it in Switzerland as it costs at least 35 dollars here(celebrate, Americans!) Luckily there's always ebay, I got it for about 20 dollars plus shipping so i am already very satisfied with this price. It should be around $10 in the US, so almost dirty cheap. It doesn't hurt to give it a try anyway. UPDATE 22/03/2013 I am getting very disappointed with this product since it really dries out my skin. I've never encountered a product as dry as it is. The ONLY thing I love about it is the shade selection, since I have extremely fair skin. I won't repurchase it and do not recommend it for dry skin.
Concealers -Maybelline - Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Concealer

LOVE this concealer! I purchased it after reading the good views on mua, and i am so excited i did it! It blends in very well, my skin is very very pale so i always go for the lightest shade. It looks a little bit orange but after you blend it into your skin, it fits very well and did a very good job on concealing your imperfections. You might need to multiply the layers if you need a better coverage. The only reason i didn't give it a 5 is that it feels somehow dry on your skin, i need more moisturising. Anyways I love this concealer and am using it everyday. I wish they never discontinue this product because i would buy it over and over again! UPDATE 22/03/2013 I am getting disappointed with this product because it really dries out my skin and doesn't last long. My skin already starts to patch after 6 hours' application, gross! I am trying new products but still couldn't get one satisfying my needs. Any mua expert recommends a good product works for super dry skins? xD
Moisturizers -Mary Kay - Formula 3 Oil Control Lotion
missdiordior 12/18/2012 1:55:00 PM
OK, I have absolutely no complaints about it. This is so far the best oil contril product I have ever used. It's very soft, fresh and easy to blend in. If you have combo or oily skins, dont even consider about other products, just go get one. Considering its super soft texture, super easy to blend in, and super oil-free, plus its very affordable price, no product beats it. (I know I sound like a commercial, but I just can't help, cos it is soooooo good!)
OMG The product is amazing! I have horrible combination skin and it tends to get oily in summer. But this worked perfectly on me, I have been using this product for almost half an year now and it never caused me any problem. It feels very soft and fresh, and light-weighted. I am using it everyday and I feel so blessed I got this product. Repurchase? Definitely!
Lip Liners -Maybelline - Color Sensational Lipliner in Clear
missdiordior 12/18/2012 1:32:00 PM
I got this lip liner in a different color and purchased it at a local counter, it is retailed at almost 20 dollars here in Switzerland, what a rip-off. But it's really a good lipliner, very easy to apply and good color selection. I think i will repurchase it but I might go for somewhere else. Americans should never complain about the products price because they can always get thing at priviledged prices:)
