Foundations -Giorgio Armani -Power Fabric Foundation

This foundation is great, although it’s matte it doesn’t look like a mask, also doesn’t settle into fine lines, I’m currently using shade 5 and it’s actually one of the few foundations that match my skin tone to a ‘t’ , it’s long wearing and the coverage is awesome, I’m very impressed with it so far and definitely will repurchase!


Eye Shadow -Tarte -Tarteist PRO Amazonian Clay Eye Shadow Palette

$53 (plus tax) at Ulta for my 13 year old to use. 4 shimmer shadows and 15 matte shades with lots of variety.
Kinda pricey, but there is a nice big mirror and it is NOT cardboard - it's plastic.

Nice and useful palette.


Fragrances -LUSH -Gorilla Perfume - Sikkim Girls

I have this one in solid form. I absolutely love the scent.

However (!!!!), I passed airport security with this on my skin, and it set off the dangerous/ explosive substances detectors, and I was "randomly" selected for the swab test. Needless to say, I was not carrying anything dangerous, so it was fine in the end. I googled the issue and I have since found out that some cosmetic ingredients can do that. I cannot say for sure, like 100%, that this perfume was the culprit, when this happened, this perfume was the only product on my skin that was new and different from what I usually use. Therefore, three lipsticks and not five.


Shampoo -LUSH -Montalbano Shampoo Bar

on 2/20/2018 11:23:00 AM

This is a great shampoo that leaves hair squeaky clean,to an extent it helps with the texture of hair lending a shine but I do feel it won't work on dry hair and may end up drying them further, I got a good number of washes with it and added the bits to a liquid shampoo (TBS Banana Shampoo) and totally loved cleaning my hair with that.


Shampoo -LUSH -Seanik

I absolutely loved this shampoo bar, it volumises hair so well and leaves a great healthy scalp, must buy for anyone who has an oily scalp and wants volume with a fresh feeling. When I was left with the bits I added them to my TBS ginger shampoo and I ended up creating a great hair cleaning blend for my kind of hair (very oily that go flat very quickly)

Liquid -Rimmel -Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation

foto

Really loving this foundation! Coverage is natural looking and buildable. Works well on combination skin. Lasts pretty well with a primer and setting spray. I do have problems with it breaking up on oily areas and settling into fine lines after several hours. But overall it's great for a low maintenance everyday wear foundation.


Pressed Powders -Charlotte Tilbury -Airbrush Flawless Finish

This is my favourite compact powder. I’ve repurchased it four or five times and I swear I won’t come back to my former favourite: Chanel’s Poudre Universelle Compacte.
The powder doesn’t look heavy on my face. In fact, it is translucent, but gives a slightly „blurry” finish which is very flattering as I’m in my early 40s. It has never broken me out (while other powders have), it has a very aesthetically pleasing compact in rose gold with a nice CT logo and with a mirror inside. The compact is lightweight, I can even put it in a pocket if I don’t carry a bag. The colour is perfect for me (I’m MAC NC15, Chanel B10) and I would describe it as a neutral fair with a slightest yellow undertone.

It's such sadness that Lush discontinued this fresh face mask, I got it for my mother and it worked really well on her, gave an instant glow that lasted, it does everything that it does, absolute love, tearful goodbye!

great mascara for a really cheap price!


Foundations -Almay -TLC Truly Lasting Color

I bought this foundation from ocean state job lot. At first when I started applying it , I thought “wow this is a really good foundation for so cheap” I was wrong. It blends OK & matches with my skin tone suprisingly , it stays on BUT feels very heavy on my skin. After a few hours of wearing this product my skin looked all caked up. I absolutely hated that. When I got home to wash it off I broke out bad. I know it wasn’t anything else that made me break out because the only thing I changed in my makeup routine was the foundation. I would never recommend this to a friend & I won’t be purchasing this product again.


Hair Treatments -Lee Stafford -hair growth treatment

on 2/20/2018 10:32:00 AM

Wow! OK, real talk, I'm not sure if this actually has some witchery that actually makes your hair grow. I have noticed a difference, but I could chalk it up to a couple things:

1) It's a scalp treatment as well as a hair treatment. It banishes dandruff, leave your scalp feeling wonderfully clean, and reduces oilyness at the roots that might prompt you to wash your hair before it's necessary.

2) Your hair looks so flipping gorgeous, thick, bouncy, shiny and strong! Not only does it protect the hair you have on your head (breakage = length lost), but this cosmetic effect automatically makes you feel like your hair is more glamorous (it ''feels'' longer, if that makes sense).

So because it reduces the need to shampoo and strengthens, I think that's the main reason it's helping my hair grow. But the real magic is that it has you convinced you have a whole new set of hair after using it, which you could swear to god is longer and more glamorous. It's worth it even if the claim of direct effects on growth are bogus!

PS: when it says ''egg size amount'', they mean the *contents* of 1 egg. I use about a yolk size amount for my very thick dry hair and it covers fine, both hair and scalp.

Fragrances -Tom Ford -Oud Wood

I don't usually like Tom Ford fragrances - I find them to be too loud, too brassy, too in-your-face - but I like this one. It's actually subtle and soft: a dry woodsy perfume with notes of woods (oud, of course, but also sandalwood and rosewood), spices, amber, Tonka bean and vetiver. The company says it's a unisex fragrance and I agree, although some reviewers think it's more of a masculine scent. I think it would appeal to both sexes: men who find traditional masculine scents too sharp and too aggressive, and women who don't care for the floral - fruity notes found in most traditional feminine scents. It's a perfect fragrance for snuggling in front of a fireplace on a chilly fall or winter evening.

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Light SPF10

Best foundation for my skin. Covers all shine which is great! Don’t need a lot to cover whole face so bottle lasts a good 3/4 months (if you use foundation everyday). A tad expensive but totally worth it. Will definitely repurchase.

Toners -Unlisted Brand -Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar

I have been using this on my hair but I can’t wait to try it on my skin because the reviews of it makes me really want to incorporate it into my skincare ritual. I use this on my hair as a rinse for shine and softness. After my conditioner is almost rinsed out. I rinse the rest out with the acv as I’m rinsing I massage this into my hair. I then towel dry my hair and use a touch of Argan oil. Then I comb out my hair with a large tooth comb. My hair is about mid booty length and is wavy, plus it’s thick. On top of that acv is pricey so I only do the rinse about once or twice a week. It makes my hair so manageable, soft, and the shine omg! My hair has never looked so shiny and healthy. I have also read that acv removes unwanted mineral deposits and other gunk from the hair. Because it’s slightly acidic it balances the Ph of hair and scalp. So apparently it does not strip colour from hair which is a plus. I dye my hair with a Demi and have noticed no fading at all. So for me this is great for removing keratin when I use too many protein based products acv makes my hair feel like new. Love!


Polishes -Unlisted Brand -Cuccio Colour - Fountains of Versailles

on 2/20/2018 9:46:00 AM

foto

Fountains of Versailles is a teal, glass fleck polish. It has mettalic-like finish.

I applied it in poor lighting, so I used 3 coats just to make sure I had full coverage, but 2 coats might have been enough. This polish is fast drying and it lasted well on me. The only negative I can think of, is that upon removal it stains the skin around the nail slightly. So, it might be a good idea removing it before having a shower.

I think Cuccio is one of the most underrated brands - I own a fair few and I love most of them.
