I will start with pros and cons and something I assume is not a pro or a con, it is just "so-so", neither.

Pro: Extremely well made good quality brush, nice design of packaging, no artificial,chemical smell, good coverage of each lash
Cons: Raccoon eyes( Sometimes-read the rest), synthetic compounds
So-so: curly effect will probably not be there for people with straight …

Primer/ Corrector - Urban Decay - Optical Illusion Complexion Primer

For me, the only thing appealing is the packaging. I bought it because the soft focus primer is discontinued.
So, here is the deal.
It is super "silicony",
distribution has to be super even so you wouldn't notice it under foundation.
The smell is too much "chemical",however it goes away fast.
It didn't do much in regards of my pores or …

Palettes - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Subculture Eyeshadow Palette

I use it in combination with Prism palette especially when using green shades.
For my skin tone I find Edge not to be so flattering, but it is one shade. As for the formula, it is same as Prism or Modern Reneissance, you simply have to get used to it if you never used it before.
I think someone might think of it as a bold palette, due to shades it delivers, but I think that it can also …

I got it yesterday and wore it yesterday and today.

All the colors are very nice, very complimentary, I do believe they work well on different skin tones. I think it has perfect ratio of mattes and glitters. And glitters are something special. They are very creamy and easy to apply. I apply them with brush without a problem, do not need to use my fingers. I applied them in the morning …

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Prep Prime Fix+ PinkLite

I love it. Does not smell too bad, the glow is there, buy guys, it is not a highlighter so do not expect to glow like from iconic or farsali, it is subtle and I love it like that. And it really keeps make-up in place. I just hate the price, maybe because I pay it in CHF and everything is more expensive here from make-up and I would love the bottom of the bottle to be different or the metal thingy …Read more

The Black Box contains a selection of four shades of black Zoeva eyeliners:

Calli Graphic Liquid Eyeliner in Black.
Cat Eye Pen in Blackest Black.
Graphic Eyes+ in Black to Earth.
Soft Kohl Eyeliner in Noir.

However, from all of these I experience smudging, possibly because I have droopy eyelids, but I do use primers and I do not like my eyeliner to smudge …

May/14/2018

I read a lot of complaints about "raccoon" eyes from this mascara so I really did not want to post anything until I tried it for an extended period of time(daily, for 30 days). I like the volume from it, looks natural, length it gives is perfect and most of all I adore how each of my lashes is separated without any clumps, spider web looks, etc. I did not wear it obviously to the pool …Read more

May/07/2018

So, I have a few, and most honestly, mainly because I adore nice packages so I bought lip tins. Anyways, the drying takes much longer than stated, if you eat, better go get a new layer because it is not there anymore and I hate it when I kiss my husband because I do own liquid mattes that dry and I can kiss my husband without his lips having my lipstick color. I think there are better formulas in …Read more

Palettes - Huda Beauty - Rose Gold Textured Shadows Palette (original edition) [DISCONTINUED]

Again, I think that is the thing with all Huda beauty: a lot of hype. Some shades you really have to apply with fingers( rose gold, 24K), but really some colors I have a feeling would look good only on my 8 year old niece. And the packaging looks cheap compared to the price tag. However, I do use it in combo with my other palettes and some shades are definitely staying in the pot until I trash it.

I really do love some shades, however, some are really not my thing. And I do not think it comes to the expectations. And also I really want to emphasise the fact that Huda really sells at high prices and the whole packaging does not live up to the expectations. And I already see I will use some of the shades and some will really remain full. I am not that critic to that, I know all of us can not …Read more
