!THIS IS WORTH TRYING OUT! Now, to be a little bit more civilized, here are my thoughts on this primer. The product is in a small pot with wide opening so you won't sweat when trying to get it out. As for hygiene, I believe we all start our makeup routine with clean hands so there's no need for digusted looks. It has a cream/mousse texture with slight pink undertones but it goes translucent once applied. To me it doesn't smell at all. Small amount is enough to cover the entire face. It doesn't leave any kind of oily-looking residue, perhaps a satin finish? And the most important quality: yes, it certainly does fill out small pores and lines but it is important not to expect airbrushed look. It also helps the foundation to stay on longer. To conclude, I like this very much but might try a different brand as well just to make things interesting :D. So if you are eyeing primers in general but: a, don't want to buy a cheap one that could put you off using them all b, don't want to feel guilty about picking more pricey brand and not liking it, Catrice will solve that for you. They are overall a great choice if you want solid products without emptying your wallet.
Ufff, hard one. I'd like to begin by saying that this didn't work out for ME. But I can easily imagine this mascara being a top-ten product for someone with thick, voluminous and long lashes. As you might have guessed I am none of the above. Therefore, this was messy to work with, clumped my lashes like crazy and flaked. Plus I hate the wand. I'm genuinly sorry for not being able to some upwith a more useful review but it was a dissapiontment for me and what dou we say about those?
Mascara -Max Factor - Lash Extension Effect Waterproof

Let's see.... This is my second tube and by far this mascara has won over my heart. Just to clearify: I have impossibly thin and fair lashes that either get clumpy or messy with most mascaras. This is perfect for the type of lashes mentioned above: non-messy application, EXTENTION and great lasting time. But be down-to-earth, it doesn't have the same effect as false lashes. It gives natural-lookng defined look. Still, just like all MF mascaras: safe choice :D
This is an amazing alternative to lipsticks/glosses during summer time. The product itself is shaped like a pencil with the colour on one and the balm on the other end. The description says you're supposed to apply it on bare lips and get tinted lips with transferproof quality. My experience: I have this in 'Everlasting Mauve' (great shade, btw) and I am very pleased. The application is normal but you must be careful not to forget your mouth corners othewise it can look slightly unfinished. It dries almost immediately but you won't feel any kind of irritation (at least I don't) plus it smells heavenly. The intensity is buildable and with the mauve shade you can go from enhancing your lip colour and shape to killer night-time sort-of-lipstick. The balm is very good as well, if not overdone it will not take off the colour at all and will prevent flaking of lips. As for the lasting time: you get a half an hour of perfection and from then on it slowly wears off. In a pretty way :D. No stange strokes and depending on how often you drink/eat/talk you get about 2-3 hours of visible wearing. My only concern is the marker: I worry if it doesn't dry out too quickly or better yet, how much product do you actually get from the tube? Hmm..., nonetheless, if you feel like you could use something like this, definitely give it a try. It's one of the better (best) drugstore finds.
Let me begin by saying that shopping for fragrances is one of the hardest things for me to do since I'm not willing to put something I'm not a 100% sure about on me. This perfume is simply perfect. I don't agree with the word 'boring' being in the same sentence with this product. I think it gives you everything the advertisement promises: it smells elegant, feminine, warm with slight flowery undertones. The scent itself develops gradually during the entire day so you don't have to spray it every hour to make it last. With 1 spray you get a hint of the smell, with 2 (which is my amount) you get normal "opacity" and if you do 3 sprays you'll make your perfume the center piece of your look. It is a perfume you can never go wrong with no matter the time of the day or the occasion. Perhaps one thing on the downside: I find it wearable all year long except for hot summers... From certain temperature point it get too musky for me. But I guess that's the price you pay for feeling warm during winter :D... As for packaging I like it very much (heavy glass, clean, elegant). Overall, I haven't found anything like this product and it is my everyday go-to scent. I am sure I'll be repurchasing this again (and again and again)...
