This is one of the products that I want to throw against the wall and scream at it. Yes, I'm feeliing very strongly against it and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

I have dark circles so in the beginning of 2016 I went on a search for a cream that might improve the situation. I didn't expect any miracles, just a touch of improvement. Just a touch, honest.

I was …

I'm giving this a 5, not because it is the best body wash, or because it has the best smell, but because it gives me the best shaving I've had so far.

I bought it on a whim, because I found it on sale and the smell was somewhat interesting and suitable for relaxation (it is a very warm scent, better for wintertime than summertime when I usually prefer something …

I'm feeling the love, can you feel the love?? Love is everywhere.

I bought this balm to try and do a facial massage, because I watched a Lisa Eldridge video, yeah, I bought into that, and I'm not regretting it, because I don't even care about the massage right now.

This is the best make-up remover I have ever tried, and to me it's worth every single euro …

Just recently bought this in my quest to find something to make a Retro Matte lipstick not be so freaking Sahara drying.

So. This is the only way to truly successfully wear the Retro Matte formula. The only thing that protects your lips, makes the application of the Retro Dry Nightmare easier, helps the touch ups, prevents the Retro Matte from flaking and from getting into all the …

Berry colours are in fashion this year, I'm a brunette with cool toned fair skin, a MAC make-up artist talked me into trying this, even though it's not a colour I usually go for.

"Be daring!", he said. "It's going to look fab on you!', he said. I even got a compliment from a group of girls in the store when I tried it. I bought it.

I got it as a gift I still regret not testing on the counter before putting it on, so that I can determine if I need to return it.

The package is lovely, the smell is nice, the finish is satiny but not obnoxious, the application is easy. The texture is very creamy and I didn't like it so much, it feels extremely buttery, like it's going to melt from your body heat and it …

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Tinted Brow Mascara

Dec/12/2015

It's a reasonably priced brow mascara, with great staying power. I have the colour Brunette, which is lighter than my dark brown hair and natural eyebrows, but I didn't want to go darker because I like the subtle result. It gets the brows to stay put and emphasises them while looking natural. The application is easy and I don't mind the fact that the brush is not tiny, it's …Read more

Dec/12/2015

This is a unique colour. It's a cool toned mix between cherry red, deep fuschia and dark pink with blue undertones and can look either more red or more pink, depending on your skin and the liner you use. It brightens the face, makes the teeth look whiter and compliments especially dark blue, light purple and lavender and also stark white clothes. Looks great with a winged eye liner or with …Read more

This is a review of the Haute & Naughty Too Black Lash, the one with the purple cap, not the pink.

I have mixed feelings about this mascara because it's good but can irritate my eyes.

It's intensely black, it lasts and it doesn't smear or flake and I absolutely love the double wand. The longer slimmer one is perfect for defining and combing through the …

Dec/05/2015

I was looking for a colour with shimmer to brighten my eyes and be subtle enough for everyday use with some mascara and natural blush and lips. A make up artist at Mac recommended Jest (which I loved and is now in my wish list), but I wanted something like that in cream texture. She gave me Bare Study.

So, firstly, Bare Study is not exactly Jest in cream, Jest has more pink to it I …
