Lip Treatments - Maybelline New York - Baby Lips Dr. Rescue

5.0

Nov/06/2016

I am surprised at the negative/mixed reviews.

Dr. Rescue in clear/menthol actually works much better than any HE lip moisturizer I ever had.

I use it whenever my lips crack (therefore not often) and it provides an instant relief - my lips look and feel much better in minutes. Cracks usually heal up after a few days when I use this.

Although, I do not plan buying …

Lip Liners - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

5.0

Oct/15/2016

I love these lip pencils.

Lipsticks, lipglosses and most lip products in general simply annoy me, I love the look but really hate the feeling. But that does not mean that I can just wear any lip pencil, in fact I have tossed away way to many pencils than I would like to admit.

I love Sensai and Shiseido for their pencils but with UD I found similar a product at a fraction of …

Powder - Prestige - MultiFinish Wet Dry Powder Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/18/2016

I'm a powder foundation convert, I can't use any other type of foundation but finding a correct powder foundation is still quite challenging as well. I spent thousands on foundation and to my surprise, I found this cheap Prestige one to be a perfect everyday staple.

It is so easy to apply with a damp or dry beauty blender - takes a few minutes and provides with a satin finish …

Masks - The Body Shop - Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask

5.0

Jul/10/2016

I am quite surprised with the negative reviews of this product.

I have this super oily skin which becomes quite blackhead/whitehead prone in the summer. Not a welcome sight. The Body Shop products are either hit or miss (mostly miss and I can't help but think that I am paying too much for them) ime, but Seaweed Clay Mask is a must have.

My tips for making it …

Gels/ Soaps - LUSH - Whoosh Shower Jelly

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2016

I love the concept of "shower jelly" yet in practice it is just too much of a hassle...It is slippery, easily wasted product and it is all over the place but on your body.
After using shower jelly I am left alone in a bathtub questioning the meaning of said product-- sad, confused and a little bit angry. I really do not have enough time to put it to a proper use - shower jelly …

Gels/ Soaps - LUSH - Parsley Porridge Bar Soap

5.0

Jul/06/2016

One of my favourite soaps ever!

Pros:
-Fresh herbal aromatic scent (I hate sweet, foody scents);
-Cleansing and truly refreshing, but does not leave that rubbery feel unlike many other mainstream soaps do;
-Even suitable for oily, acne prone, irritated facial skin -- leaves it soothed and refreshed.

Cons:
-bizarre form and the lack of packaging; …

Powder - CLARINS - Everlasting Compact Foundation SPF 15

Jul/06/2016

I cannot use liquid/cream foundations at all. In fact, I think that many people do not quite realize that they are simply just too oily for anything liquid.
Oily skin "breaks" liquid foundation and broken foundations look sad and poor despite being Sisley or Dior. I see quite a few of those in the streets and I once was that person myself.

Back to Clarins Everlasting …

Masks - LUSH - Fresh Face Mask - Don't Look At Me

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2016

I understand the philosophy behind this brand but I still cannot help but think that some of the Lush products are priced too high for what it offers.

I really do not like this face mask. The texture is grainy in a sharp and uncomfortable way, the scent really gets on my nerves and "masking" is supposed to be a soothing experience.

I like its bright blue colour …

Shiseido Smoothing Lip Pencil RD 702

Beautiful colours, very smooth and indeed smoothing texture, great long lasting, natural look.

I find using lip makeup and products very irritating but this lip pencil feels great and can be smoothed too look like lip tint/lipstick. The finish is surprisingly soft.

I wish the cost was lower but in this case its worth it. I will …

Masks - LUSH - Mask of Magnaminty Face and Body Mask

Feb/13/2016

Lush products are overpriced. I have not tried a lot of products of this brand but overall I am not a big fan as some items seem to have glitter and other mysterious chunks in them while being packaged in cheap and some of the most unhygienic jars and tins. Also this brand has this pretentious disposition that I do not particularly care about.

About this specific product: 4th …
