Fragrances - CHANEL - Gabrielle Essence Eau de Parfum

4.0

11 days ago

Key notes: Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Orange Blossom, Gasse Tuberose.

Lovely, elegant, feminine fragrance.
I’m not a fan of the classic Gabrielle perfume. This version is more up my alley- has more zest, so to speak. Tuberose and citrus notes are the main players here.
It’s a warm, cozy scent- like sunny autumn afternoon. Longevity is impressive (typical for Chanel), but at the same …

Eyeliner - Marc Jacobs - Magic Marc'er Precision Pen

I own this eyeliner in Cocoa, a black/brown shade. I have a very fair skin + deep set eyes so I tend to reach for brown liners instead of black because they don’t look so harsh. Not many brands make decent brown liners (I used to love Too Faced Sketch Marker in Espresso but I can’t find it anywhere, I guess it’s being discontinued).
I enjoy using this one, even though it’s more black than …

Concealers - CHANEL - Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer

3.0

I adore Chanel makeup. Their foundations, lip and nail products are among my all-time favorites. Also, love the packaging and the luxe vibe.

Almost everything from this brand I’ve tried I loved, but sadly this product is an exception.
I have extreme dark circles and my usual go to concealer is Tarte Shape Tape. One tube lasts me for almost a year of everyday use since I need the …

Concealers - Sephora Collection - Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer

I bought the new green shade that’s supposed to neutralize redness. But it did nothing, only left an ugly greenish hue, redness still peaked through it.
I wish the coverage was better, and the concealer was more pigmented.
Also, it dried out my skin and caused a few breakouts exactly where I applied it.
Very average for the price.

Cleansers - KORRES Natural Products - Wild Rose Foaming Cream Cleanser

It’s a nice basic cleanser. Gentle, non drying, yet effective- cleanses thoroughly and removes impurities. It doesn’t sting my eyes or irritate my skin. It didn’t cause allergic reaction, didn’t break me out.
It has a lovely scent and creamy consistency. It foams easily, you don’t need a lot to cleanse your entire face and break up even waterproof eye makeup.
It won’t replace my HG MAC …

This new foundation is one of the best I’ve EVER used, and I’ve been into makeup for 10 years.
My skin: combo. I prefer satin matte finish foundations, so this one is right up my alley!
- The consistency: extremely lightweight, moderately runny.
- Coverage: like in description- sheer to medium. Covers what’s supposed to do, evens out skin tone so, so beautifully!
- Finish: lovely …

Highlighters - GUERLAIN - Meteorites Highlighting Powder Pearls

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

The first time I used Meteorites I was in my early twenties, and after application didn’t see any difference. I thought them a gimmick.
Recently, years later, I used them again (a new packaging obviously) and DID notice that they make my skin look smoother, makeup last longer and overall “pretty up” my complexion. They give me that lovely “glow from within” look. I guess it’s one of the …

Mascara - GIVENCHY - Volume Disturbia Mascara

4.0

2 months ago

My first impression: Amazing. This mascara makes my lashes long, fluttery, curls them beautifully. It doesn’t flake or smudge. The black is intense. Does everything I expect from a good mascara.
But there’s one big con: it dried out SO FREAKING FAST! Like, in less than a month! And I don’t like dry mascaras. That’s why I won’t buy it again.
It was great while it lasted, but for that …

Top/Base Coats - CHANEL - Le Top Coat Quick Dry and Shine

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

Fantastic product! I know, I know, there are many great top coats for a fraction of the price but from time to time it’s good to treat yourself.
Anyway, it does what it’s supposed to do: makes any nail polish dry incredibly fast, adds shine and evens out the nails surface. I prefer it over Chanel’s Le Gel Coat. Perfect product for at home manicure.
The brush is standard for all Chanel …

Stick - GUERLAIN - Terracotta Skin Foundation Stick

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I bought it on a whim because I love stick foundations, and I hugely enjoy it!
Formula: very lightweight- you almost can’t feel it on your skin.
Coverage: sheer to medium. Covers minor imperfections, and that’s enough for me.
Lasting power: surprisingly good for such a thin formula! And maybe because it’s so thin, it doesn’t wear off leaving ugly patches of bare skin.
I’ve learned …
