My boyfriend bought it because of the cow on the lid... Lol.

I have to say it smells great. The price in Paris is quite high.
The consistency is very thick, the cream actually melts easily and becomes sort of an oil. It doesnt sink in super fast, it is tacky and the jar packaging is not very hygienic.
It does nourish the hands, makes them really soft and smooth and not just …

Cleansers - BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Micellar Cleansing Water and Makeup Remover Solution

I can't believe I didn't write anything about it!

It is gentle, it removes makeup (not waterproof), you just keep the soaked pad for a while and it's gone, no rubbing.
Doesn't sting, no cloudy eyes, no redness.
Very basic product, very effective, no frills really.

I'm using it from 4 years without any pause.

I live in Paris and …

Lipstick - CLINIQUE - Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm

Sep/14/2014

I love lipsticks and each lipstick after 4 hours or earlier need a little touch up.
That is why I love these chubby sticks. I dont wear nudes, I wear strong colours and when it starts to fade away in the middle of the lip its not very attractive, also many of them are a little drying.
I own 16 voluptuous violet right now, which goes amazingly well over Tom Ford Black Orchid. It …

I selftan since 2 months. So far I absolutely love Xen Tan Dark Lotion.

Positives: mousse, super easy and fast to apply with mitt, dries very fast, not orange nor yellow, smells pleasant and after some hours the smell is only noticeable very close to the skin
Negatives: it's not as dark as the Xen Tan dark, after 4-5 days you can notice the patches, when drying …

Jul/25/2014

I was scared to get proper dark self tanner and my friend told me that this product is subtle enough.
First, it is very cheap product so I got two tubes.
Consistency is like a normal lotion with gold shimmer. Not glitter which is nice.
The guide colour is hmm quite yellow and very light.
It all looked ok, it dried in 30-40 minutes and it wasn't tacky.
The …

Jul/25/2014

This is my first self tanner with guide colour, before I only used gradual ones so I can only compare to these. I use the tanning mitt!

Each night I apply heavy moisturiser and I apply my tanner after shower on clean skin.
Packaging is very nice, the consistency like an usual lotion, pleasant sweet smell.
The application is smooth, the guide colour helps a lot. I find …

I have thick long hair. I dont apply any heat and I was looking for solution to add volume.
My friend a hair stylist recommended it to me. I was quite skeptical but I got it anyway.
Its very light, cute pink packaging with the holes in the smiley shape.
The powder is very fine, white and feel quite weird.
I put it into rows on right and left between the middle of my …

Makeup Brushes - TOM FORD - Cheek Brush

May/06/2014

I used more tapered brushes before but not anymore.

This brush is incredible. First of all its very well balanced. The hair is soft, but not too flexible.
It does pick up good amount of product, not too much at once which is a positive for me.
I thought that it might be too big, but It is not, the shape is actually really good at diffusing the colour without the harsh edges …
