Fragrances - Lancôme - La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum

Dec/15/2012

I surprisingly love this scent. When I read the list of notes I thought it would be too flowery and sweet smelling. And while there are floral notes and it is on the sweet side, neither are overwhelming. On me, La Vie Est Belle is very warm and nice. The patchouli is done in a way that completely works. Also, I have received tons of compliments from wearing this perfume that I hadn't with …Read more

Eyeliner - CHANEL - Stylo Yeux Waterproof Marine

Jul/26/2012

I love this eyeliner. It has good rich pigmentation and applies smoothly, which is my biggest issue with non-kajal pencil eyeliners. Also it does have wonderful staying power. I had no occasion to test the waterproof claim, but it did seem sweat, oil and humidity proof all day long. Marine is a beautiful sapphire colour that looks stunning on brown eyes and medium-dark skin. Definitely worth …Read more

Polishes - L'Oreal Paris - color rich nail color 340 spice things up

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/23/2012

I absolutely love this nail colour, it has become my new HG! I normally wear very dark burgundy and plum shades but I felt like switching it up for summer and bought this polish for my toes and it is simply perfect. Spice things Up is a gorgeous dusky rose/light plum shade that is warmer than most shades in its colour family, so it really flatters my skin tone, and I think most skin tones as …Read more

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Sensuous Nude

Jun/22/2012

I bought this perfume just before going on vacation, and wore it daily there, so it will always remind me of summer beach trips now :) I smell a lot of wood notes in it, which I absolutely love. It makes the scent feel warm and, true to the name, sensuous. However the floral notes keep it feeling light and summery. I normally wear quite heavy perfumes such as Poison, Shalimar and so on but …Read more

Eye Shadow - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible - Hourglass Beige

5.0

Jun/22/2012

I have already raved about my love for the Infallible shadow formula, finish and packaging in my reviews for other shades, so for this review I'll simply say the Infallibles are just wonderful!
I believe, although I am not certain, that Hourglass Beige is called Iced Latte in North America. It is a light shimmery beige/cream shade, and at first swatch I was afraid it would be too light …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Double Extend Mascara with Lash Boosting Serum

4.0

Jun/22/2012

I like this mascara and I find it works quite well. I wish the formula was a bit heavier and drier, but after trying dozens of mascaras trying to replace Revlon Doubletwist I settled on this one for the time being until I find another HG. Double Extend, while not a HG contender b/c the formula is just a bit too light and wet, does give my lashes definition and a good rich dark colour. Its staying …Read more

Powder - Lancôme - Dual Finish Versatile Powder Makeup

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/20/2012

I like this powder a lot and I do find it very versatile. I apply a very thin layer before my foundation to absorb sweat and oil in the hot humid summer, use it to take shine off my nose, and sometimes apply it with a wet sponge for better coverage in the heat, when I feel like liquid foundation would get too runny. It has good staying power and looks very natural and nice on my skin. It's …Read more

Eye Shadow - REVLON - Luxurious Color Perle - Black Galaxy

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/08/2012

I wanted so badly to love this shade as it looked like a beautiful shimmery black in the packaging and advertisements, and so many magazines and such were recommending it. But I was disappointed when I tried it. For one thing, the packaging is very fragile and the top lid can pop off or the pan can become loose extremely easily. As for the actual shadow, the colour is pigmented enough but the …Read more

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup [Reformulated Early 2013]

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/08/2012

Foundation is such a YMMV. I used to swear Colorstay was the best foundation ever and refuse to try anything else and now I have changed my opinions on it. For one thing, it is extremely heavy. Not so much heavy in pigment but thick and chalky in texture, and it dries very quickly, making it difficult to apply and blend IME. It is difficult to get any luminosity at all from Colorstay...it makes …Read more

Jun/02/2012

I got this nail polish in Crimson Scream. I love the shade, it is a nice burgundy-red which is always my signature colour for my fingernails, and I now have it on my toenails as well! I thought the formula was fine. It does dry quickly and it applies quite smoothly without streaks. It is pigmented enough and doesn't require too much layering. What I don't like is the packaging, I think …Read more
