I have pretty fair skin and the eye area is dry and purple rings have been in my life since my childhood and I am really annoyed by the wrinkles under my eyes. I was using estee lauder double wear for 2 years and it started to dry lately and made my wrinkles more obvious. So I gave a try to clarins, so far so good.. Really happy with the results! It doesnt dry and the pigmentation is really good. I really suggest everyone to give a try :-)
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Professional Mineral Powder Brush #45

I use it for my liquid foundations and also for bb cream, I can't believe how a brush can make wonders of a cheap rubbish foundation. I clean it with Johnson's baby shampoo and had no problem like hair falling etc. Don't waste your money on expensive brushes, try these ones first.
I LOVE IT ! I keep my natural hair color so I don't need a repairing kind of shampoo. It softly cleans your hair and give a healthy shine. I dont need a conditioner even though my hair is shoulder length. I also use it to clean my brushes. The smell is heavenly..
BB Cream -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector - Light/Medium

I was very excited to try this product, I liked the price and trust garnier products so far. It has a muddy oilly texture, light coverage, the color blends well my pale skin but when I put it on my face, It has a feeling like my skin rejects to absorb it. So I keep tracking my best foundation & bb cream..
I never liked Maybelline eyeshadows but this one is very different. You can wear this color in daywear or night. It stays in place till you clean your make up. I apply first layer with finger, than I use my concealer brush to get more pigment and combine with a highlight color. I will repurchase this product again and again..
I loved the color but the staying power is so bad. After one hour nothing left on my cheeks although I use primer and foundation.. So I decided to use it on my dailly simple make ups. But I won't repurchase this product.
We don't have Urban Decay here in my country so I was looking for a similar palette to Naked, but I think I found a better one. The colors are amazing, everything you need in one palette. You can create different looks. The colors are very pigmented and they stay long and no creasing. I also suggest this palette to make up beginers, you don't need to buy MAC expensive eyeshadows..
most of the perfumes was at first nice but later, I somekind of hated them.. and they made me nausea. my nose is very sensetive, and i don't wear perfume so much. I think this is what i have been looking for so long. Its very clean and fresh. I agree with the other reviews, people say it smells like clean linen but I don't care. I feel very comfortable wearing it..
Its expensive, bought it for 23 Euros. It does blend well but coverage is very low. After a few hours you can see it sets in lines. I was very happy with Estee Lauder Double Wear but couldn't find it in the store so I listened the sales asistant's advice.. I am very dissappointed with this Lancome product.
Deodorants -The Body Shop - DeoDry Dry-Effect Deodorant

This roll-on deodorant was the worst product I have ever used. It dries quickly, no iritation on the skin, but it doesn't protect you from smelling. And your sweat smell mixes with the product's smell, yuck!
I bought this perfume without try, I read the reviews and I said lets give a try. I liked the bottle a lot but its definately not for me. It smells like an old lady perfume, heavy and not for dailly use.
Concealers -Estee Lauder - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Concealer

After so many attemps, I have found the best concealer fits me well. I have dark under eye and my skin does not cooporate with concealers well. but this concealer's texture is really light and surprisingly it covers better than the thick ones. Looks natural and enlightened my face. It stays fresh for about 8-10 hours and, I suggest this product for pale white faced ladies like me.
Concealers -Maybelline - Super Stay 24 Hour Concealer

I loved this product, I paid nearly half of what I paid for my previous concealers. It really covers my dark circles. But you should put and spread it quickly. It has the mix texture of cream&liquid concealer. before applying make sure you moisturize your eye area well. hope you enjoy this product like me :)
I was looking for the best under eye concealer and this product was too light for me, It is like a base cream. Maybe if u put 2nd layer, it will look better. I suggest you guys, try it first on your skin. the store lights are deceitful...
