I love this product. It gives the healthy nice glow on my cheeks that I desire, it gives a cute pinkish color on my eyelids and a cute healthy pink color on my lips. The glitters in the stick are there, but ones applied on any part of your face they are not transformed to a healthy shiny glow. I love the fact that it goes along so long. The packaging also works for me. It is kind off big, but at the other hand it is really easy to use, classy and easy to find in my make-up bag because of the size. I have had a nice blush that gave me the same glow on my cheeks, that one was 10 times cheaper, but not useable on lips and eyes. (well eyes maybe...) The only downside off the nars products is that they are F***** expensive!!! But you will get a great product with a lot of pigmentation in return.
I bought this because I was in need of a new mascara, there was a great deal on rimmel mascara's (2 for 1) so I bought 2 and started hoping it was going to give me some great lashes. But no, I was hoping for a bit of lenght and some great volume, but it gave me no lenght what so ever, a bit of volume... The only great thing about this mascara is that it goes off just like that and the packaging is really awsome :P Hot Pink. It is not the worst mascara I have ever tried, but it comes not even close to the best mascara I have ever tried. Overall... A nice mascara for a more natural day. But thats it. Compared to my all time favourite mascara this one is much cheaper tho.
This is a expensive maybelline mascara compared to other maybelline mascara's, but it works. I am still in love with l'oreal beauty tubes because that stuff actually makes my lashes healthier and gives less breakage. But this was a great deal, 2 for 1, so I bought 2 and I am still using the maybelline one up till today. It goes a long way, but when you just open the mascara and use it for the first time it is, in my opinion, very watery like... So after a week or so I will get the result I really like, but the first week it's not that great actually.... I only use the vibrating part in the first layer AND when I get the feeling that my lashes stick together. Other than that I will just use the normal wand and comb through my lashes. It gives thickness, lenght and seperates really really nice. It goes off a bit hard, but I guess almost every normal mascara has that problem. I dont think I will buy this mascara just like that again, I will wait for a new great deal I guess ;)
Treatments -Estee Lauder - Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher
moccah 11/17/2010 7:32:00 AM
This smells nice, feels super nice when applied on skin. It even mattifies a little, but talking about pores... Well, it does nothing for that. Maybe if you have really large pores you can see the difference, but I only have some black-heads on nose and very little on chin sometimes. I hoped it would fix those areas a bit, but no. It is a very good make-up base tho. It makes my skin feel really smooth and soft, but thats the only plus I guess. It is super expensive!!! So this was the first and last time I bought it :)
Well let me start by telling you all that this mascara smells really nice! I have never opened up a mascara and sniff it the way I do with this one, it reminds me of honey en vanilla or something :S Really strange but it does smell really nice. For the mascara itself, I think its pretty good, I have used l'oreal beauty tubes for a while now and its my HG for sure, but Im a mascara junkie and need to buy every mascara thats new on the market and I am glad that I bought this. It does a really nice job on my lashes, I dont have short lashes to begin with, they curl nice just by them self and their not that thin as well. But just with one layer this mascara gives me the ultimate natural look with a little bit of extra something, apply 2 layers and youl get the volume they are talking about. It does lenghten as well, so overall this is not that bad. When I apply it over my loreal mascara its really amazing. So I gave this 5 lippies because its perfect for day and evening wear and its smells good, it didnt make my lashes dry and break off or something. Really liking this, especially since its pretty good quality for a pretty good price
Polishes -Rimmel - French Manicure Cafe Au Lait 464
moccah 10/17/2008 9:11:00 AM
I really like this product, I like the lycra wear polishes anyway, but this color is really pretty on me. Its a brown/nudish/pink tone that will actually look good in combo with white tips as well as just this color. I use it with the lycra wear topcoat by rimmel, and its does stay on for a long time. I never really checked out if it stays on for 10 days, but it stays on longer that other brands Ive used so far. Will buy again
After trying about just every mascara on the market at this moment I went and tried this gorgeous fella and ever since I am using this and only this. It adds a lot of lenght and that is just what I want: LENGTHT and if I want more volume I'll just add a layer or 2 more It is soooo easy to take off, just warm water and off it goes, no more panda eyes no more irritated eyes because of the rubbing and cleanser no more breaking lashes, this stuff is just freaking great The one thing I really like is the fact that it doesnt dry out as fast as other mascaras because of the formula, normally I would through a mascara away after a month and with this mascara I throw it away after about 1,5 month. and even in the end it still does a great job! Im using my 3rd tube right now and I would buy a 4th for sure
I bought this just yesterday, in holland it is called double extend tubes that means that the mascara is forming tubes around your lashes as it dries, this is very very nice because you can slide the 'tubes' off with just warm water and your lashes will be clean without rubbing and stuff with remover, best thing ever if you ask me. the mascara itself is my HG, I was planning to order lancome and HR mascara at strawberrynet, but this was for sale so I thought Id give it a go. Promise of mascara - lashes lengthened by 80% check - no rubbing or panda eyes with removing, just slide the 'tube' off check - no flaking etc on for about 8 hours already...check clumping factor is low, if ou put it on normally and let not all the layers dry completely before you add a new one there will be very minimal clumping. this costs me 15 euro (about 20 USD??) And this is a normal price over here for loreal mascara, I will buy this over and over again, I'm in love and very very glad I didnt buy the HR and Lancome first HG for sure!!
Tinted Moisturizer -Nivea - Visage Young Be Beautiful Tinted Moisturiser
moccah 5/25/2008 9:24:00 AM
I got this as a tester and I absolute hate it It smells very funny when you put it on your skin, it also made my skin feel very cakey and sticky even though I put on a thin layer. It also clogged my pores, even though it prmosed not to.... The price for a normal tube is kind of cheap if you compare it with other brands, but I still wont buy it... I hate this stuff, horrible
Eye Shadow -Rimmel - Colour Rush Quad in Smoky Brun
moccah 5/25/2008 9:21:00 AM
I first had the tripple box of brown shades but I somehow lost it. But the quad box is even better, the 4 colors are perfect to blend and use single. there is a color (the lightest shade) that can be used as a perfect highlighter, the darkest shade is a perfect 'eyeliner' especially if you use a brush and make it a bit wet. The price is also not expensive at all, off course there are a lot of 'brands' that are cheaper, but they dont have this nice pallet of browns that dont shimmer like crazy....
This stuff smells soooo nice, it gave me a feeling that I always have in the summertime. The packaging is new, it has like magnets in it so it wont burst open when you have it in your purse or anything. I dont know what color I had...I think it was the darker one (it has 2 shades in the netherlands) It looks very natural, but since I am kind of fair this can look orange in a sec when I put on to much. I already have this stuff a long time and I still dont see the bottom of the package, but that is because i dont have to use a lot of it.... I gave it 4 lippies because it is a bit expensive over here and it has only 2 shades...
another mascara review from this mascara whore... I bought this because i needed a new mascara for a little price since rimmel is one of the cheapest drugstore brands in holland I bought this one, the description sounded just what i was looking for (long thick lashes...) Well the outcome is not long and thick, it is thick and it is a bit long, but it doesnt seem to have the lenghtening ability I was hoping for, It does a great job for everyday natural looking lashes, but i love the over the top thick and long looking lashes... so I will be only using this for work or something like that Maybe I will only use it for the time being...that is untill the moment I find i new better one.... the packaging is very cute thought and the brush is nice also ;)
magnify eyes my ass the only great thing about this mascara is the brush, it is suppose to lift by 70% or something like that... Well even if I use a curler it still wont lift, in fact it is doing a great job in getting my nice curled eyelashes really straight and un-curled. It doesnt lenghtens, it doesnt lift, it doesnt do anything just make them black and straight... I wont ever buy this mascara ever again, it is crap
Bronzers -Rimmel - Natural Bronzer - 22 Sun Bronze
moccah 5/19/2008 12:13:00 PM
I love this stuff, the three things i always use are bronzer, mascara and eyebrow pencil this rimmel bronzer is the best ever, i have bought it 3 times already, always the same shade. i can use the same shade in summer and winter because it can be used for building up, it doesnt give that much color at once so its a perfect bronzer just to give you a nice glow or make you a subtle skintown darker. this bronzer is the cheapest of all the ds brands in holland and i hope they wont discontinue this stuff....
Scrubs -Garnier - Nutritioniste Nutri-Pure Microbead Cream Scrub
moccah 1/17/2008 4:25:00 AM
I normally buy cleansers/scrubs that are made for combination/oily skin. This exfoiliating cleanser is for normal skin and since every cleanser i have ever bought for oily/combined skin made me look worse i gave this one a try. I live in holland and over here it is called clean detox exfoiliating ge-scrub, the name is a bit wrong since it is not a gel but a creamy substance. It smells define, and made my skin look so bright and fresh without drying it out. The scrub is a bit to hard, but the trick is to put some cream-scrub on wet hands rub it between your hands very gentle and than 'wash' your face very gentle as well, It works perfect for me and i am verry happy that i bought this stuff. The packaging sais it would clean out pores as well and it sure does, my blackheads are reduced from very noticeabel to not so anymore. I LOVE this stuff
