If you are bored of wearing reds and still want to wear something sexy yet classic...look no further. This is a beautiful magenta red color on my nails and compliments my cool skin. Absolutely universal color for every skin color. It is one of those colors you will always come back and reuse. While I can't find any cons, after taking this beauty to home, it took me a few minutes to find out that I have a cheaper dupe (Flormar M109) in my nail polish collection. I still love it so much and did not returned it.
Loose Powders -Ben Nye - Neutral Set translucent powder

I can honestly say that this is not a miracle product, I had to reapply this after a couple of hours . I have combination skin, my skin is not very oily. Its performance is not any better than Chanel Universal which is my regular go to powder. I bought it, used a couple of times and stopped using it after reading that it has parabens. I will not re-buy or use this powder. Parabens are not good for our health..
Okey I get it, Chanel sets the trends but I don't like this color. It has strong brown undertones meaning not so hot. If you like it and looking for a cheap dupe, look for Flormar 413. Pastel 75 pulls more purple. I personally prefer purple undertones.
If you already have Ruby Pumps, just apply it 2 coats over a any black nail polish and there you have Lubu Heels. Simple and easy. Save your pennies.
I bought this yesterday. I was expecting a beautiful Tiffany blue but this is not blue. It is a pastel nile green color. Therefore I'm very disappointed. I have Pastel 100 (a Turkish Brand ) and it is exactly the same color or in other words dupe.
Gels/Soaps -Unlisted Brand - Nesti Dante Emozioni in Toscana Thermal Water Soap

I love solid soaps, I love using them, smelling them and even seeing them makes me happy when I open my drawers. This soap leathers nice and has a fantastic smell , fresh and flowery. It has a complex and unique smell, it smells like a mastic in some notes, the one you chew. I like the clean smell of mastic very much, we put it in our deserts, ice cream, Turkish coffee and also make mastic liqueurs in my country. It has a chunky size and a great designed package. I normally never keep packages but I keep this and sniff it. Before buying this soap, I've never heard of Nesti Dante soaps. After buying it, I googled it and found that it is a well known soap maker company in Italy. They make soaps in traditional way which I believe is the best way.
Looking for dupe? Flormar 323 is the answer. Chanel is sold for 50 lira where Flormar is sold for 2,50 lira in my country. I really don't think Rouge Noir deserves this price tag.
I first hated this brush because I was trying to use it as a powder brush. Later, I read the reviews here and used it with liquid foundation as a foundation brush. Loved it. It has everything that I'm looking for. I can't think about a single con. Thank you ELF for great brushes with affordable prices.
I received this pencil from a lovely swapper as an extra. It has an olive - gold color but it is not a warm color. I'm always in the hunt for cool golden shades -which is rare- and this fits the bill perfectly. I just wish its color was a little bit more intense. It does not show on my waterline. Better use it on upper or lower lash line. NW20 for reference.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

My new HG mascara. I have long and bone straight lashes. It holds my curls perfectly, no other mascara can beat it. It's not clumpy, really gives my lashes a feather look. I prefer non -waterproof mascaras but will tolerate it . I said goodbye to my long time HG mascara from L'oreal . Thank you L'oreal for all these years but we have to grow up and move on to our lives.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner
narkiz 12/10/2012 10:03:00 AM
edit: took one lippie off 'cause it is waterproof and I have to use oil based eye makeup remover. I don't like to use oils near my eye area frequently. Still like to product, will be great if they make a non-waterproof version. This is a great gel eyeliner. I tried Bobby Brown and Mac in the past, this is the best in every respect. It does not smudge and glades easily, stays in place, does not come off in little flecks like Blacktrack. Performs good (can't say excellent) when used in waterline, better than Blacktrack and BB. I will use the rest of Blacktrack but will not buy it again. I will buy this one again for sure.
This is a God send for us. Every girl must have it.
This is a beautiful color. This what I want All That Glitters to be on my cool skin. ATG looks orange on me. I was lucky to buy the last one at the Mac shop.
This a new color from Glamour Daze Collection. I bought this last week and have been using it every day. This is a soft peach color with some reflections. At first it is an ordinary color and I would not use it alone on my cool skin because it makes me look sick. What I like about it is, it makes warm colors wearable for me. For example Sable is a beautiful color that I have but looks orangey on me, so I never use it but like to have it in my collection. When I put A Natural Flirt as a wash and Sable on my lids, I couldn't believe my eyes. It softened Sable's color and made it look very sophisticated. No orange look at all. The only con is, it has a very dusty formula and if one use it daily, she may finish it in two or three months. This is my new fave color, totally worth it's rating.
Eye Shadow -Christian Dior - Iridescent Quint -Petal Shine 809

I bought this palette after reading some great reviews. I use Mac Jest ,Naked Lunch and Trax as my go to colors almost everyday. I was looking for new colors to discover and thought maybe this palette could be the one. After using it a couple of times, I found that the two pink colors in this palette are not any better than my beloved Jest and Naked Lunch actually worse because they are warmer than them. Trax is a more interesting color than its purple color. Also the color in the middle (salmon) is way too warm for me, meaning money wasted. The last color is taupe. Well it is a nice color, the best color out of others but I also have Bobby Brown Fawn, which is very similar . No need to have two similar colors that do the same job. It is not a bad palette but it just does not worth its price.
