Jul/26/2012

Vernis In Love is Lancome's latest nail polish line, released to accompany the new(ish) Rouge In Love lipsticks. As far as I can tell, the shades correspond to each other pretty closely, so it should be easy to match lipstick to nail polish. Both lines are supposed to appeal to younger consumers and are hence moderately priced - well, by Lancome's standards anyway. On the downside, the …Read more

Apr/16/2012

I'm no fan of L'Oreal and have never been impressed by any of their products except mascaras; however, this foundation sounded like just what I want from my base, so I decided to buy it. My previous experiences with drugstore foundations have been pretty disappointing - the only other drugstore foundation I've ever liked enough to use regularly is Bourjois Healthy Mix. It seems …Read more

Mar/03/2012

I came across this product while researching possible dupes for Urban Decay 24/7 liners, as UD isn't available where I live, so I had to got through a lot of trouble to get hold of them. These are not only available in my country, but are also considerably cheaper (these cost about 6 euros here). I wouldn't go so far as to say they are superior to UD 24/7, but they're very, very …Read more

Cleansers - Logona - Cleansing Foam, Mint for combination skin

Mar/03/2012

This is an absolutely wonderful product and one of the very few I've come across that could really be said to work for all skin types (except maybe very sensitive/reactive skin, since it does contain alcohol). My skin is normal to dry in summer and very dry in winter, so this cleanser is not what I typically go for, in fact it is the only product intended for oily/combination skin I've …Read more

Foundations - Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One

4.0

fromLjana

Feb/05/2012

I bought this purely for the novelty of it - I have never tried a BB cream before and this is the first one that launched in my country. I have this in the shade 'Light', which at first glance seems too orange and dark for me, but I can get away with it due to the sheerness of the formula. This offers virtually no coverage at all - all I see is a slight evening out of my skin tone …Read more

Liquid - Bourjois - Flower Perfection Youth Extension Foundation

Feb/04/2012

I was very much looking forward to this foundation because I've enjoyed various other Bourjois foundations and the (vague) product description sounded like something I'd love. Turns out it is not at all what I look for in a foundation, but that's not to say it's not a good product.
For all their colorful, creative marketing, Bourjois are really not very specific and …

Moisturizers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Ultra Soothing Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin

Feb/03/2012

Toleriane Ultra is probably the most basic moisturizer I've ever used, but it's also one of the best (for reference, my other favorites include Avene Hydrance Optimale Riche, Avene Rich Compensating Cream, Lush Celestial and L'Occitane Almond Apple Velvet Concentrate). I'm amazed that they managed to come up with such a wonderful product with so few ingredients. I'm not …Read more

Liquid - CLINIQUE - Supermoisture Makeup [DISCONTINUED]

Dec/07/2011

This is one of those old, classic products everyone knows about, so I won't go into details. I tried it only recently just because it turned up in every Google search of 'best foundations for dry skin'. The thing is, I love a good foundation and wear it daily, but as I suffer from pretty dry skin (truly dry skin, not dehydrated or dried out by anti-acne treatments), most …Read more

This is an incredible foundation in my opinion. Now don't get me wrong, it has its weaknesses too, but its strong points are...well, so strong that I am prepared to put up with the faults.
Its best feature is its finish - freshly applied, this gives the most beautiful, soft-focused, healthy, hydrated finish to the skin. I am rarely tempted to study my face up close in the mirror …

Moisturizers - Avene - Rich Compensating Cream

Jan/10/2011

I've been using Avene products for a couple of years, but I tried this cream only recently. It is a wonderful cream for dry skin. I doubt it would work on any other skin types besides dry - this is not meant for dehydrated skin, but for dry skin (lacking in lipids rather than water). Consequently, this cream is more of a nutritive cream than a moisturizing one. The Hydrance Optimale line is …Read more
