I saw this colour on a friend when she used it as a base for the OPI Living Daylights glitter nail polish, and it looked really good. I have never seen any colour like this. Sure, there is a lot of metallic colors out there, but this is so deep and intense and looks perfect together with almost all clothes. After the first layer, I wasn't sure if only two would be sufficient, but two was definitely enough. As usual, OPI polishes are easy to apply, and the brush is one of the best. I absolutely love this colour, and I recommend this to everyone!
Oh, how I love this smell! It smells like nothing else, and it's by far the perfume I have received most compliments for, from both women and men, and it's not crazy expensive either. Not many people uses this, so you will also be a little unique when wearing this. I have forgotten about it for a few years, but finding these reviews definitely reminded me to buy this again - it will never go out of style. Also, the fragrance stay on the body for a long time without being too intense or dominating. Perfect!

Like many others, I don't understand why this get so many bad reviews. I had a bottle about a year ago, and I absolutely love it, many of my friends do too. I will definitely re-buy this on my next perfume-round. It stays on a long time, and smells so fresh and original! The only thing that I don't like is the shape of the bottle.
Even though this nail polish didn't live up to my expectations in terms of colour, I don't regret buying it. I wanted a deep brown shade. but this one has much more red undertones than I expected. However, it looks really nice on and is very opaque after about three layers. If you want a brown colour without red undertones, this one is not for you. It is however not as red so it borders on burgundy. It is also much darker than the bottle shows.

I am really happy with this brush, luckily, because I would feel so bad if I had payed the full price and it would be as bad as the Full Flawless Brush. This one is super soft and works perfect with my BareMinerals foundation powder. I would buy this again, but not any of the other BareEscentual brushes.

Unfortunately, I didn't get this brush with a kit, I payed full price for it, and I regret it so much. It is harsh on my skin (it almost feels like applying mineral foundation with a woolen cardigan), and it sheds ridiculously. I thought it would be better by time, but one year later, it still sheds as much as in the beginning. I am a bit reluctant to buy a new brush since they are quite expensive, but I will use this for a couple of months more and then search for a better brand.
As other people have noted, the formula is super streaky, and I also needed around 4-5 layers before it was opaque. That made the nail polish look clumsy and not light as would be expected with a color like this. I was quite disappointed because I really liked the colour and looked forward to wearing it during the summer, but that never happened. The nail polish came with the new broader brush, which I love, but it didn't make up for the streakiness and the beyond bad formula. It's a pity because the colour looks so nice.
This is a very nice colour with a great formula. It is very opaque and the purple shade seems to go with all my clothes, despite their colors. It stays on for a long time too. I do however think that I need a shiny top coat with this colour in order to give it more life, but maybe that's a matter of taste. I will definitely buy this again, it such a good everyday nail polish.

I am so happy with this nail polish! The colour is great; dark grey with a lovely shimmer. It is very opaque and I sometimes only need one layer, like most of the Chanel nail polishes. The brush is good, but nothing special (not as good as the new broad Essie or the OPI one), but it does its job. Because the formula is so good, I still have a lot left despite using it very often. It also stays on the nails better than most other brands I've tried. I will definitely buy this again.
Hair -Schwarzkopf - Gliss Kur Total Repair Treatment (hairmask)

The Gliss Kur series is the best series I have ever tried. I have been using so many different series over the years, both really cheap and really expensive (everything from Toni&Guy, Redken, Korres, Rituals etc) but I always end up going back to this one. I have tried the schampoo, conditioner, this mask and also a spray serum, and all of them are great. The package is horrible in the shower though, water easily comes in and makes the product go watery, so keep it away from the shower. But it really does its job, and I don't even need to brush my hair after using this, it's simply perfect. What makes it even better is that I can buy it everywhere in Europe for a really good price.
This eye cream is great for hydration purposes, my eye area was silky smooth even after the first night. I haven't noticed any improvements concerning dark circles, but it does help for puffiness and to restore the condition of my skin in the eye area. It's not exactly what I'm looking for, because I also want to brighten my dark circles, but apart from that, it is a great eye cream, and I have to say one of the best I have tried.
I tried the Light version after I had been using the normal version for a while, and I would say that they are both really good. The oil speeds up the drying time after applying it to towel dry hair, and it leaves my hair super smooth and soft. This one is better for thinner and finer hair, but because my hair is quite thick, even though its fine, I can use both of them. This one doesn't have the same strong smell as the normal version, so if you are sensitive to smells, this might be better for you. I will definitely buy this product again.
I love this product, and I really miss it when I wash my hair and don't have it around. It smells really good, speeds up drying time, and leaves my hair so soft and in a super good condition. I recommend it to all my friends, and I will definitely continue to buy it as long as it exists.
This was the only clear mascara I could find at Sephora in The NL, but it doesn't do its job at all. As a mascara, it doesn't keep my eyelashes curled after using a curler, and it leaves small white rests when it dries. It works better as an eyebrow gel even though I think that part can be highly improved too. The good thing is that it's cheap, and that the brush has two different lengths, but that's about it. I wouldn't buy this again, and I am usually very happy with Artdeco's products.
I don't often use mascara, and even if this is one of the better ones I've tried, I'm not completely happy with it. The colour is great, but the brush and the formula is too unprecise and thick so the mascara clumps and it all just looks clumsy. It stays on for a long time though and I think it really is waterproof as it says. I wouldn't buy it again for everyday use, but it works if you're only gonna wear it once in a while when going out.
