I love this product. Unfortunately it's difficult to get a hold of in Spain, so I tend to stock up as I travel.

I looooveee it, because it's exactly what I want in a bb cream, it is very subtle on the skin and gives your skin this fresh glow.

However, if you are looking for coverage or more of a colour unifier, this is not for you (but you may like the garnier bb …

I'm not a huge fan of setting powders as they tend to make my skin look dry and flat. however, I was surprised at how my skin looked with this powder, especially my under eye concealer.

I can't say I've had no creasing at all, as it simply is not the case, however I did notice a significant improvement in the longevity and overall appearance of my concealer. (Also I like …

Love the brush soo much.

the formula is good tbh and I'm quite picky with how I like my lashes (I like them whispy and thick at the root, NEVER clumpy or spider looking, I'm all bout that volume).

the trick is: curl your lashes if you need to (mine are straighter than richard burke), and then place the concave part of the brush (the inner part of the C shaped …

Dec/12/2017

this is good stuff. I'm a chemistry nerd so I tend to check all the ingredients that makeup contains and of all the ones I've tried, this one has some of the best ones.

Although I'm not a fan of powdery foundations, I tend to scoop a bit of powder in my hand and mix it with 3 drops of oil - voilà! a liquid mineral foundation!

Alternatively, if you apply the …

this legit RUINED MY SKIN, it containes coconut acid which clogged my pores and ruined the texture of my skin. I had great skin before I started using the micellar products, didn't struggle with sensitivity nor with acne. However after using this, I slowly started getting bumps all over my face, inflamed, non inflamed, blackheads and so on.

The issue with this is that it slowly …

HORRIBLE!!!!
I've been lucky enough to have quite clear skin throughout my teens and now my young adulthood. But about 3 months ago I started breaking out like never before. I don't mean a spot or two, I'm talking whole forehead covered in bumps, blackheads on nose and cheeks, bumps on my chin etc. All of these then got inflamed and as soon as one would heal, 3 more would pop …

When worn on skin that is in good condition (i.e. not dry, not oily, no breakouts or blackheads), it looks beautiful. Makes my skin look like it's been photoshopped.

However, I've lately struggled with breakouts and the dryness of acne treatments and I must say, the foundation looked awful in these areas.

Now, I am not very experienced in acne cover ups with …

Nov/18/2017

Although I do love a full on makeup look, most of the time my makeup is more on the natural side, especially when it comes to my skin. Which is why I have long been looking for a highlighter that is very natural looking and can be worn during daytime in sunny barcelona, without being mistaken of being dressed up as a christmas decoration.

I LOVE THIS

The glitter is so fine …

I never used to suffer from acne breakouts before. However, the past month and a half I have been battling breakouts (comedones, cystic acne and blackheads) in my T-zone like never before.

Did this mask solve the problem and clear my acne? No. Acne treatments including antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid are mainly to thank for the healing of it.

HOWEVER, I am …
