Jan/28/2014

Yet another "cult" product that fails to impress me. This cream was not moisturizing at all, and also irritated my skin, making it feel dry and itchy. The same thing happened to my husband, who normally doesn't complain much about products I'm pestering him to try. My skin is dry and dehydrated, so I most of the time layer either a hydrating serum or a facial oil underneath my …Read more

Conditioner - Pureology - Precious Oil Softening Condition

Jan/26/2014

This conditioner is perfect for my type of hair, which is straight and soft, consisting of a full head of hair where each strand is relatively fine. It adds the perfect amount of slip without weighing my hair down too much, and it doesn't make it so soft that it becomes impossible to style. I suspect that the bad ratings for this conditioner are due to people expecting it to work for drier …Read more

Jan/26/2014

I honestly can't understand the bad reviews for this product. To me, it's one of my definite favourite shampoos, and I have just repurchased, after running out, which is hardly something that happens at all, me being a true product junkie. My suspicion is that the bad ratings for this shampoo are due to misunderstandings; with "oil" in the product name, you would expect this …Read more

I have tried 20+ different undereye concealers, and still, I can't resist a good hype, so I simply had to try this one when I discovered that Ellis Faas makeup was available from Beautybay. Well, it has received very good rating, but I am not totally satisfied. I fair an neutral (leaning cool, around N13 (lighter than MAC NW15), and bought the lightest colour, which supposedly is neutral in …Read more

May/02/2012

Yet another "no" to repurchasing from me. I an drawn towards Dior make up in general, but I can't get any of the foundations to work for me for one reason: they oxidise like nobody's business! The only one that doesn't, is the loose Nude Glow, which is divine. The Diorskin Forever powder foundation was unfortunately no exception, and although the result looks good for 15 …Read more

May/02/2012

There are certain things that I like about this foundation, but it certainly also has its downsides. I like the colour selection, where N2 is close to perfect most of the year. Usually, I'm unable to find a match in MAC's foundations for my light, neutral skintone, with NC being too yellow, and with NW most of the time leaning orange. I also like the fact that F&B is light, yet …Read more

Mascara - Stila - Glamoureyes

Apr/26/2012

I have tried every mascara under the sun, mostly because I'm curious. My favourites are Max Factor Masterpiece, Chanel Sublime and Diorshow Extase, which fulfil different purposes. I'm mainly looking for length and the possibility of layering without getting a clumpy result, and the Stila Glamoureyes meet both of these criteria. The colour is a nice, glossy black, the mascara is neither …Read more

Cleansers - VICHY - Purete Thermale 3-In-1 Micellar Water

This micellar cleanser does everything I expect it to; it removes light makeup, including non-waterproof mascara, doesn't leave a residue, and also doesn't irritate my slightly sensitive skin. I will definitely repurchase.

Lipstick - bareMinerals - 100% Natural Lipstick - Gelato

Apr/18/2012

This is a perfect MLBB shade for me. I would describe it as a medium pink with mauve undertones, with just enough warmth to avoid it from looking grey on the lips. This was the lipstick I chose for my wedding day makeup, and I still like the colour of it very much. But that's the end of the love story for me. These lipsticks are insanely dry, and I can't get them to work on my dry lips …Read more

Apr/16/2012

I bought this although I suspected that it wouldn't work for me (nothing longlasting ever has), so I can't really complain, but I must say: if your skin is on the dry side, stay away. I have tried it on top of different primers, with rich moisturiser, with sunscreen (Shiseido, LRP...), but nothing really works, and it sinks into my normally invisible pores before I have gotten my shoes …Read more
