Nov/27/2012

I am addicted to Benefit, and I really really really wanted to like this blush. I was using Dandelion which is absolutely perfect for my really light skin, but I wanted some change and having read that Coralista suits almost every skin tone, I wanted to give it a try. Also, as I really liked the texture of Dandelion I was sure that I was going to love Coralista. But I was really disapointed to …Read more

Oct/09/2012

I discovered Essence a few weeks ago after hearing rave reviews about it. I started with a few items for the face, then decided to go for the lips also. I usually don't wear lipstick, but "All about cupcake" really is a subtle colour, not so pale that you'll look like a ghost, and not too bubble gum pink.
It's really easy to apply, the consistency is creamy, it …

Oct/01/2012

I've been looking for a new type of blush as powder blush tends to accentuate the little flaws on my skin. I tried cream blush but wasn't really blown away.
I've heard and read so many good things about Essence that I wanted to see if they had some special blushes. I picked up the soufflé blush in fresh apricot and in cold wildberry.
I was a bit skeptical about …

I was looking for new make up as my skin was getting really strange, with dry patches and spots. I went to a Make Up Forever store in Brussels and got advised on some of their products.
The sales assistant then did my make up with the HD foundation (at first I thought I had find my HG foundation just to find out a week later that it was breaking me out and making me skin even dryer) and the …

Jun/11/2012

I used to love this mascara and use it everyday for more than a year when I decided to change (I can't remember why). Then I came across it last month and decided to buy it again.
I love the silicone brush to apply the first layers of mascara (I then use a bristle one to add a bit of volume).
The liner effect isn't obvious, but it does make your lashes look blacker from the …

Jun/11/2012

I got this free with a magazine and as I was running out of mascara it was a good surprise. It's not the best mascara on earth, it has a strange honeyish smell and the brush drags way too much product out of the tube. It also has a really strange look, the bristles are really short.
I never tried it alone, I use it after another one of my mascaras to add a bit of volume. It does an OK …

Really disappointed by this top coat. I used to use OPI Rapid Dry Top Coat but after a few month it started to get really thick and was making tiny bubbles on my nails.
I went to the beauty store wanting to buy Good To Go, as it really seems to do a great job but it was out of stock. I then decided to buy No Chips Ahead as I like my manicure to stay put for at least a week.
I tried it …

Apr/13/2012

I have freezy hair that tends to go crazy when it rains, or when it's hot and I'm sweating. That's why I always wear it in a Pony tail, but to give a kick to my hair style I also have a fringe (I know, a nightmare when you have freezy hair but it really does look good on me ^^).
I was using John Frieda Frizz-Ease straight fixation smoothing cream but it wasn't protecting …

Apr/10/2012

I was using Make Up Forever's HD Foundation for a few weeks before buying Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow. I had it in 115 and it was a perfect match but it made my skin dry and it was breaking out.
I tried to resist buying Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow but my curiosity got the best of me and I finally took it in "I'm pure 4 sure Ivory".
The color is really nice, I blend it …

Feb/27/2012

Before I buy a Mascara, I always check here on Make Up Alley what other people might think of it and this one had a really good review so I tried it. And I have to say, I'm not disappointed. I got it for around 10€ and it does a better job than my previous one, the Bad Gal Lashes from Benefit. It also has a big brush full of hair (no silicone here) but it's a lot easier to apply.
