Apr/30/2018

Almost finished my bottle after 2 months use (about 3 times/week). I have fine, natural highlighted, smooth hair. Oily root, dry ends, mid length.
I used the product religiously with no other shampoos or treatments in between. I always wash once, rinse and wash again.

Pro’s “time saving natural product with schizophrenic action”
- natural
- 1 product instead of 2

Jan/23/2018

I hoped for easy application and jet black wings but spent ages on getting a decent flip with this. I regretted buying it as from the first application ...

Pro’s:
- nice and decent case
- last rather ok if you don’t touch it, sweat or walk through humidity

Con’s:
- impossible to draw a sharp wing
- felt tip is wobbly, not firm, not bouncy and not precise
- …

Jan/05/2018

This is a very good alternative for the Chanel Le Gel TC and far better than the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel TC.

Pros:
- long-lasting glossy look (check application tips beneath)
- acceptable price range
- works with classic Essie polishes or other brands
- stays liquid in the bottle for a good time
- dries quiet fast
- bottle shape is easy to hold between 2 …

Jun/04/2016

What can I say? I'm on my 6th bottle or so (can't keep count) and don't understand why I never reviewed before. The only thing I hope is that they never stop selling this! I started to use this for beginning dry lines and never looked back. It really made a big difference for me and most of the time this is the only eye product I use. I don't think it works for dark circles …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Creative Nail Design - Super Shiney High Gloss Top Coat

Jul/25/2015

HG! I don't know why I would bother to buy any other topcoat ever again. This one gives glass like shine, makes my manicures last longer and dries pretty fast too. Plus: unlike other topcoats, this one never gets goopy. I can easily empty the bottle without thinning drops or whatsoever! Just purchased a big bottle to decant in my regular size, so yes I will be using this for a while now …Read more

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/18/2015

With Caroline Hirons' positive review and my love for deep cleansing in mind, I had to try this (thanks M.W.). This balm is a no fuss hard working cleanser that takes away all make-up and dirt. You could situate it between the all natural REN balm and the Eve Lom mineral oil bomb. I love my REN cleansers but this is a great alternative especially if you are allergy prone or dislike strong …Read more

Dec/15/2014

I'm using a luxury sample (glass vial with plastic applicator in cap) for more than ten times now. The SA matched my mac nc 20/25 skin with Santa Fe and that works perfectly. Texture is runny but smooth to apply, the tiny applicator proves exactly the right amount with just 1 dib, dries up to a medium coverage with satin-matte finish and lasts very well. I would call this a balancing fdt …Read more

Mar/26/2014

A bit on the expensive side but so worth it for me. At first I found it too pasty. I left it in my drawer and forgot about it. Then a SA recommended this to me and I gave it another try. Happy I did so! This completely replaces foundation for me. I just apply it over foundation and it evens out my complexion in a minute. You just need to use very little: more is useless and won't make you …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Essie - Good to Go Rapid Dry + Shine Top Coat

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/26/2013

My hg topcoat since 8 bottles already. Dries fast, makes your manicure glossy and longer lasting+ you can almost finish the bottle before it bekomes unworkable (keep it cool and in the fridge as much as possible). Does go a bit syrupy in the end but still manageable. Not cheap but worth it.
