Mascara - Dior - Iconic High Definition Lash Curler Mascara

5.0

Sep/14/2008

When I looked at this new Dior mascara, the first thing I thought was "they copied Chanel Inimitable".
However, as I really loved the subtle finish of Inimitable since the first stroke, I decided I had to try Dior's version to see if it was as good as Chanel and also to check if that soft twist Dior made to its brush made any difference at all.
Well, I do not know if …

Fragrances - KENZO - Summer by Kenzo

Jun/24/2006

Well, despite the generally low ratings it received and the harsh crictics, I must say I really love this fragrance.
I received a sample of it some time ago and left it there, almost forgotten. Last week I rediscoverd it and tried it on. Instant love. Which is strange, btw, because this is absolutely not my gender. I generally prefer fresher, more citrus-like fragrances.
I believe this …

Palettes - Yves Saint Laurent - Palette Horizon For The Eyes

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/07/2006

Since I saw the pictures of this palette posted by some MUAers I knew it had to be mine.
The packaging is gorgeous. It comes in a brown, velvety glove with a sort of small "pocket" inside for the double sponge-tipped trick I immediately put away (I prefer brushes). The case has the standard dimension and shape of a YSL duo eyeshadow, except for the colour, which is a warm …

Eyeliner - Dior - Style Liner - Intense liquid Eyeliner

Mar/06/2006

I have it in 334 (seawater) and 834 (rose), the new shades of the Spring 2006 collection. Both are rather light and luminous.
I usually wear them only on the inner half of the upper eyelid (i.e. from the inner corner to the top of the eye) rather than on the full rim and on top of similar shaded e/s: it adds a lot of light to the entire eye without being too apparent. Definitely to …

Eye Shadow - GUERLAIN - Divinora 4 Shade Eyeshadow - Touche Mandarine No 242

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/06/2006

Fresh Harmonie 242 Touche Mandarine is part of the Spring 2006 Color Collection, but I believe it is not a limited edition.
It has two mat e/s: a pale mandarine and a soft apricot that are simply to die for. They are very delicate and fresh, so they could be more appropriate for fairer complexion (I'm a neutral/cool PPP and the effect is simply flattering!), but they're so pretty …

Sep/15/2005

After having read the previous reviews, and absolutely loving YSL mascaras I went straight to the nearer shop and bought it in #3, a subtle green (once on, you would notice the colour only under direct sunlinght or if you look at it very closely): it's almost the same colour as YSL mascara longueur intense #6, but without the shimmers.
I can't say much of it's lenghtening or …

Jun/04/2005

Although I had most of the colours of this quartet I couldn't resist: Its Chanel :) and in package, shape and texture it ressembled much more the American version of 4 ombres - i.e. the texture and staying power of the e/s is the same of that of Chanel's ombre unique, which I find great - rather than the European one - round-shaped, hard and dry e/s unworhy of this superb brand. If you …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Star Powder Eye Shadow

May/10/2005

I love those eyeshadows. I have 20 shades (all the shades I could find), including the 4 whites with golden, pink, blue and silver refelctions. The colours are gorgeous, very blendable and mixable. I love them both dry and wet and use them alone or to top other e/s (to intensify or modify one shade or simply to add a bit of shimmer).
The staying power is good, but not the best, especially if …

Eye Shadow - SHISEIDO - Creamy Eyeshadow

May/10/2005

I have it in C4 - Frozen Iris. Gorgeous colors: a shimmery white and a quite dark purple. Very tempting, the reason why I decided to buy it.

The texture is a bit granular, which means that you must not blend it too much, especially if you have very sensitive skin'eyelids or it will be a disaster.

The effect looks great the moment you put it on, but less than one our …

Concealers - Helena Rubinstein - Magic Concealer

I love this concealer. It's one of the best products I ever tried.
I have no dark circles under the eyes but I do have tendencies to rosacea and this - literally Magic - product erase the redness from my face. I'm PPP and the lightest shade suit me perfectly. I use this light, quite fluid concealer on my cheeks instead of the foundation and the result is perfect, not cakey or …
