Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Single Eye Shadow - Smokie Mountain

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/06/2010

I bought Smokie Mountain blindly through Cambree.de (a German web site) as NYX Cosmetics doesn't sell its line in Italy. Luckly, when my order arrived, I couldn't be happier about it.
- PRICE: € 3,95 – definitely a bargain!!
- PIGMENTATION: highly pigmented, I can't really complain;
- COLOR: pretty unusual, intense and long lasting;
- QUALITY: it performs just …

Treatments (Face) - LUSH - Grease Lightning Spot Treatment

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/08/2010

I'm a massive Lush fan, I've tried almost everything they sell and I was dying to test this product. That being said, despite using it daily, I didn't notice ANY improvement on my blemishes, it only helped (a little) with inflammation. Ineffective, straight to my no-buy list.

Mascara - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Lash Fibers

Sep/27/2009

Out of this world stuff - SO GREAT!!
Last week I was at Sephora, very determinated to purchase the famous Shiseido mascara base when I suddenly saw this MUFE Lash Fibers laying on a shelf. I thought something like "Why not? I usually adore MUFE cosmetics" so I bought this base even without reading the reviews on MUA, which I assure you it's very rare.
In short, I do …

Gels/ Soaps - LUSH - Yummy yummy yummy [DISCONTINUED]

Aug/30/2009

"The little strawberry and the great barracuda" is how Lush decided to call the product in Italy. Attracted by this eye catching name, I decided to give the pinkish shower gel a try and put it on my basket among the other items I was pondering to buy.
Unfortunately, such a girlish creation doesn't correspond to a very remarkable product. Because of its VERY watery formula …

Cleansers - Kiehl's - Washable Cleansing Milk

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/22/2009

The first thing that comes to my mind about Kiehl’s Washable Cleasing Milk is how much I paid it: € 24,00 for a 250 ml bottle (=$ 34/8.4 fl. Oz) is JUST TOO DARN EXPENSIVE for what you get!!
In any case, the product itself is pretty good: a very gentle white fluid that leaves my skin feeling fresh and smooth. It also removes my make-up and other impurities pretty well.
I don’t even …

Hair Treatments - LUSH - Marilyn Hair Moisturiser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/21/2009

I suffer from VERY dry hair and I've used an uncountable number of products over the years. I discovered Marylin completely by chance, I got a sample at a Lush counter but at first I was extremely doubful. As a matter of fact, I’ve red highlights and natural brown hair so I really didn’t think this product was for me (a yellow treatment for blonde gals = what the hell?). But once tried, I’ve …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - The Colossal Volum Express Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/26/2009

Let me start by saying that I won't repurchase this mascara again. The huge yellow tube with purple lettering was very appealing and I secretly hoped it could turn out to be a cheaper alternative to my beloved DiorShow.
Unfortunately, once tried, only my delusion was COLOSSAL. Volume and definition? No signs at all and my lashes looked messier than ever.
It’s even pricey for what …

Tinted Moisturizer - benefit Cosmetics - You Rebel Lite Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/29/2009

I just don't get the point of this product... It's useless. I was looking for a not too dark tinted moisturizer and bought You Rebel Lite blindly on an on-line site. Tinted moisturizers can be used in place of a foundation for a natural look and I opted to get this one because I usually find Benefit products to be very good quality.
How bad I didn’t read these reviews before …

Shampoo - KORRES Natural Products - Juniper and Olive Tree Shampoo

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/22/2009

I hate to say this, but I don't like this shampoo. I had dyed my hair with henna by the time I was fourteen so my scalp and hair are pretty dry right now. In this light, when I saw Korres products on a shelf of a store that carries this brand, I picked up Juniper an Olive Tree shampoo expecting it could be the right product for me. Wrong! Point one: it doesn't give my hair volume and …Read more

Lip Treatments - La Roche-Posay - ceralip

Jan/09/2009

Can't say enough good things about this product. Especially during winter, I used to suffer from VERY dry chapped lips and, in order to prevent this, I tried a bunch of lip treatments. Unfortunatly, no one didn't really seem to work.
Then I purchased La Roche Posay Ceralip without high hopes and.. WHAT A SURPRISE, it started working instantly, healing and protecting my lips …
