I missed out on Jade so I made sure I didnt miss out on Nouvelle Vague and managed to find this gorgeous nail polish at a local beauty counter. Normally I always way a base coat and top coat with all my nail polishes but didnt feel the need to do with this one. 2 layers of this and I was ready to go, I also found that it dried quicker than my Opi and China Glaze.
My first reaction to this was 'WOW what a beautiful compact powder'. Dior has really outdone themselves again. I have been a big fan of all their Diorskin nude collection products till now, especially their Diorskin Nude Foundation and also the Diorskin nude powder. I use the DiorSkin Nude Foundation as my daily foundation, the powder I use only on special occasions. The Diorskin Nude Sculpting Powder contains a SPF10, each powder comes with 3 different shades (to unify, to sculpt and to enlighten). Basically its a highlighter, compact and sculptor in one. The price is steep, thats why I have been holding back to purchase, but not for long as I have been reading all praise for this item. I paid 48Euros for this, but if you count it as a 3in1, then I paid about 16 euro for each shade, which makes it more reasonable, I guess. Dior uses an Advanced Mineral Makeup Technology, this powder is very light and once applied its makes me look flawless with the big F. It contains 100% natural, mineral pigments with Dior's exclusive active mineralized water. It's very long lasting, had it on the whole day and only needed to blot once or sometimes none. There are lots of people who dont like the brush that comes with it and use their own alternative brushes instead. I feel no need for that and I m very happy with the brush that came with it. I got this in shade 032 Sable Rose, it matches my skin tone very well. For their Diorskin nude foundation I use shade 031 Sand which is Medium shade for Yellow undertones. I will definitely buy the refill.
OMG this blush is BEAUTIFUL! It radiates the skin. I have got about 50 MAC blushes and dont use them anymore in favor of this blush. I have never seen such a beautiful natural looking peach blush. One major pluspunt for me is that it doesnt have glitters, I m not a big fan of glittery blushes! I apply it with my MAC #188 brush and it looks really good!!

I m not impressed with this. It doesnt remove mascara very well, it feels very greasy and it irritates my sensitive eyes. So I would definitely not buy this again and stick with Lancome Bi-Facil!
Polishes -Chanel - Le Vernis nail colour #159 Fire

Absolutely THE perfect shade of red! Love it! Chanel nail polishes are always very long lasting. Will def repurchase!
Although I m using only products described by my derm. I really wanted to introduce this rosehip oil in my skincare routine. How do I use it? I apply it before apply my mask or I mix it in my mask. It really lives up to all the positive reviews, it makes my skin more bright, flawless looking and helps with the inflammation of spots. Excellent product!! I also want to mention: http://www.nzpacific.com/Trilogy_Rosehip_Oil_Products.html where I ordered my product. Their service was superb and they have got worldwide FREE shipping!
Deodorants -Neal's Yard - Lemon & Coriander Deodorant

I love this deodorant! I was using Weleda Citrus one before that which was also really nice but I find it had quite dishwater smell to it. But this one not, it is perfect and I will definitely buy again!!
This is what I wanted Chanel Blue Satin wanted to look like! True dark blue with little hints of purple!
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! This product contains Sodium Laureth Sulphate which is a skin irritant especially for those with acne prone and sensitive skin. This product totally wrecked my skin which clogged pores that leaded to inflamed spots that wont disappear. I bought this product because it contains Salicylic Acid and it doesn't foam. Without the SLS I think it might actually be a good products. Immediately after when I stopped using this product my face cleared up and was more refined again!!!
I received a sample from a lovely swapper! This mask is great, a good quality clay mask, that doesnt dry out my skin. I put it on in the night and washed and my skin looked very clean, clear and bright. *EDIT* I dint think I ll buy the full size version after all because the next morning I broke out in horrible spots, red & inflamed!
The lasting power of this lipstick is amazing (when applied directly not with lip brush). It lasts after lots of drinking, even when after brushing teeth and if I dont wash if off, it can last a whole night! I m a NC30 and this colour really brightens my face up.
I m using a sample of this product for about 3 days now (day&night) & I must say I like it a lot! A very nice eye cream for a very decent price. My issues are: dry skin around the eyes, puffy eyes and dark eye circles. I found this has combat all 3 issues to a certain degree. I think I ll consider to buy the full size version! Because I think you have to use it to long enough to see more results!
Concealers -Ettusais - Medicated Acne Concealer (Oil Free)

This concealer did absolutely nothing for me, it didnt conceal any of my spots or dark scars neither did it heal the spots!
I can almost say this is a miracle product against cystic spots/acne. Very efficient in clearing them up. The only downside on this, is the applying method. I have to use cotton balls otherwise it gets really messy and wasted but the best is to use your hands then product is more efficient. I would buy again when its finished but I dont think I ll have to in a long time because there is a lot of product and only need to use a tiny bit each time!
