Uninterrupted is a wonderful unusual dark camel with an absolutely gorgeous smooth and intense color payoff. Exactly the shade I have been searching for for years - and fortunately in the huge Pro Longwear pan! It is matte with a creamy long-lasting formula equal to that of the unsurpassed matte2 e/s of MAC. The hue goes very nicely with honey blonde hair. I find it also pairs wonderfully with …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - free to be

May/22/2014

A very unusual color: coral but not in a rabbit-eye kind of way, rosy but not in an unsophisticated girlish kind of way. Absolutely gorgeous for green eyes. I recommend pairing it with Uninterrupted which brings out the pronounced beige tint in free to be. It looks classy but still very special and that is also due to the matte formula and the smooth but not too intense color payoff. When reading …Read more

Bronzers - MAC Cosmetics - Lustre drops in sun rush

Feb/18/2014

I bought this online and almost laughed out loud when I saw the tiny, tiny bottle. But I soon experienced that one drop, mixed in your moisturizer, is enough to produce a healthy, sunkissed glow without foundation. For me as a pale blonde this is simply perfect, because all kinds of bronzers simply look dirty and by far too discernible on me. This product enhances your skin tone but it isn`t the …Read more

Feb/18/2014

I only bought a sample because of the overall rather unenthusiastic reviews here. But even after just two times of using it I`m absolutely sure I won`t take long to get the full size pot.
It is such a marvellous unique colour! If you think of the high-end moisturizer ads where the models have those so very flattering lilac nude matte eyelids - that`s the colour created by French Violet! As …

Eyes - MAC Cosmetics - Eyeliner Mixing Medium

Feb/18/2014

I bought this in order to achieve a more precise line when applying eyeshadow wet as liner. I load my angled brush with eyeshadow or pigment and then dip it into a drop of the mixing medium on the back of my hand which is supereasy. To me there is no noticeable difference to water as regards color intensity or precision. There is however a huge difference in terms of staying power. And what is …Read more

Brows - Blinc - Eyebrow Mousse in darke blonde

Feb/12/2014

I absolutely love the Blinc tube mascara - not only because of its natural result and easy removability but also because of the various brown shades. As I am very fair this simply looks better than the usual harsh black. So, when I came across the brow mousse of the same brand I had to give it a try. The choice of shades is equally enticing as with the mascara. The darke blonde is a very natural …Read more

fromPhyrne

Feb/12/2014

The idea of highlighting your face is so enticing wouldn`t there be so many trash products out there. Screamingly obvious in harsh, glittery colors, rendering old instead of dewy. So I stayed away from them - up to now! This product is soooo different, believe me! Texture like a dream - it simply melts into your skin, leaving nothing but an absolutely natural, vibrant and very youthful silky …Read more

fromPhyrne

Feb/12/2014

Normally I hate cream blushers - they`re often greasy, emphasizing pores and unnaturally obvious - and normally I go for rosy colors, after all blushers are meant to achieve a youthful, healthy look. So I never would have given this product a second thought hadn`t I read all the enthusiastic reviews here. I gave it a try and am thrilled to have done so! It absolutely melts into your skin, a …Read more

Lip Treatments - Weleda - Everon Lip Balm

fromPhyrne

Feb/06/2014

I simply cannot do without this lip balm. There are always about 4 sticks around the house as my children are addicted as well. It smells wonderful like honey but isn`t sticky. It simply melts into your lips which get warm and supple after application. No smeary layer, no flaking or long-term dryness which I experienced with so many other treatments. There is really a lasting effect! It`s a bit …Read more

Cleansers - Sebamed - Liquid Face and Body Wash

fromPhyrne

Feb/06/2014

I have an extremely sensitive skin but when using this for cleansing I never experienced any ugly skin reactions. You only need a tiny bit of product per application and skin feels fresh and clean afterwards. I don`t have to use any extra make-up remover, so it`s very effective without being overly drying. And it isn`t expensive either (at least here in Germany) - I dont`t even have to rebuy the …Read more
