Highlighters - GUERLAIN - Meteorites Highlighting Powder Pearls

5.0
Created with Sketch.

9 days 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
Created with Sketch.

13 days 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.

15 days 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.

1 month 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 …

Fragrances - Bottega Veneta - Illusione For Her Eau de Parfum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

Notes:
• Top notes: bergamot, blackcurrant
• Heart notes: orange blossom, green fig
• Base notes: olive wood, tonka bean

When I first smelled “Illusione”, it was like in a movie- a flashback to a particular moment of my childhood- spending summer at my grandmas house, 20 years ago. There’s something in this fragrance that instantly makes me think of my Nana (maybe she used a …

Lovely scent! I remember smelling it 10 or so years ago and disliking it. But my taste has changed over the years and I came to love it.
My faves include Hermès Twilly, Guerlain Ginger Piccante, Miss Dior EDP (2017 version), Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, Miu Miu EDP, new Bottega Veneta Illusione. I’m not a fan of sweet scents anymore, teenage years are long gone.
This one is elegant …

Liquid - Lancôme - Teint Idole Ultra Liquid 24h Longwear SPF 15 Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

It was a random discovery. I had an opportunity to try out the old version years ago- and hated it. So I stayed away until I saw that Lancôme refolmulated it and added new shades. One shade in particular caught my eye: 006 Beige Ocre. Previously all the shades have been too dark or too pink/neutral for me, this one looked promising and actually blended into my skin! So I could give it a shot …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - CLARINS - Body Smoothing Moisture Milk with Aloe Vera

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I hate body lotions, always did. The feeling of anything even remotely sticky on my skin makes me want to rinse everything off.
Not this one- this is one of two body lotions I can tolerate (along with Sol de Janeiro cream). Even more, I’M IN LOVE.
- It absorbs quickly without leaving that dreaded sticky residue.
- Lightweight, milky consistency.
- Does what it’s supposed …

Masks - Sephora Collection - Instamask - Oat Muesli Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

New addition to Sephora Collection’s skincare lineup- and such a great one. It’s a pure pleasure to use it. Smells just like a strawberry oatmeal, and there actual oat particles in it! Lovely!
Now, the most important part: it does exactly what it’s supposed to do. It’s soothing and calms irritated or dehydrated skin. I don’t have dry skin but I do love an extra moisture- I could bathe in …

Mascara - Marc Jacobs - Velvet Primer - Epic Lash Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I’ve always been a fan of Dior lash primer and used to think that nothing can even come close. But Velvet Primer proved me wrong!
At first I had to get used to synthetic brush and peachy-tinted formula. This primer performs best after 4th or so application; at first it was kind of... dry.
I use it under Essence Lash Princess mascara (Black and green one) and this duo works WONDERS. My …
