Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED Basics Eyeshadow Palette [DISCONTINUED]

Apr/03/2016

I bought this in the hope of that I'll have a compact palette for workdays.
When swatched, it looks very nice and pigmented. On my eyelids it was very different. The Foxy and WOS didn't give a good coverage(with UD primer).
IT DRIED MY LIDS OUT. I haven't read this anywhere in any review. It was because of this I'm not using it at all.
The shimmery shade is …

Top/Base Coats - Essie - Good to Go Rapid Dry + Shine Top Coat

Best drying top coat I ever tried. (I tried Opi Rapidry topcoat and drops, Seche Vite, Sally Hansen diamond drying top coat).
It can dry several layers of reluctantly drying polish. It leaves a fantastic shine and evens out the surface for example of my ILNP flakies. (Which the seche vite didnt do as well)

I bought it together with the corrector and ended up using that with MAC Pro Longwear concealer instead of this. The corrector is very good.

This doesn't last as long as the above mentioned combo and creases...
I really don't like how it creases. If i want to have a nice hydrating concealer on a very dry day , i go for Benefit Fake up.

Pressed Powders - NARS Cosmetics - Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder

Nov/24/2015

Best powder I ever had. This was my first high end powder I bought, so everything I bought after this was a bit of a disappointment.
Anyways, It's wonderful to set your makeup with. I have dry cheeks and oily T-zone and it controls/blots this area very nicely, it sits nice on dry skin.
It gives an otherworldly glow, even though it has a matte finish. Maybe others wont notice it,but …

Eyeliner - NARS Cosmetics - Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner - Via Veneto

I love Nars , but this is not working so good.
When i got it in the start i thought it was nice, but i don't like it anymore, maybe because it dried out??? I had it for a half year or so.
It's hard to sharpen it, you can never get it really sharp, because it's very soft. Also the pencil moves around in the pencil shell. It's hard to draw a nice smooth line with it …

Mascara - SHISEIDO - Perfect Mascara Defining Volume

Waterproof, holds the curls, doesn't crumble.
Have to have a good bi-phased makeup remover for it (Bifacil or garnier works).
It's indeed a bit smelly, but it's worth it i think.
Very similar product with a better smell is Clarins Truly Waterproof.

Fantastic dramatic black mascara, gives good separation, lengthens and volumizes.
Very waterproof, doesn't crumble.
Hold curls that i make with my eyelash curler amazingly. I have really straight lashes otherwise.


I use Maybelline bi-phased waterproof eyemakeup remover to remove it, by holding on a cotton pad and let it sit a little.
Comparable to the Shiseido …

Mascara - CLARINS - Double Fix Mascara

Nov/24/2015

I bought this because i wanted something under my regular mascara to hold the curl after i curl my lashes, as water based mascaras straighten them out.

Well, doesn't help to hold the curl.

Then i tried to use it for what it was meant for...It's not really good.

It has a bad applicator, that makes the lashes stick together, a weird paraffin based formula …

I bought this for my friend, as she was very curious to try the Nars Orgasm blush, but I'm broke :D
I found that the blush in the LIGHT palette, is the closest dupe i have ever seen for the Orgasm.
It has that blueish pinky radiating base and then the golden fine shimmer, which is actually finer than the orgasm. That might be very nice if you have perfect skin, maybe not so good if …

Very nice finish, but doesn't do anything for me. Basicly doesn't show up on my NC25 skin.
Find it too yellowy/orange compared to MAC new romance.

(I also have the Corallista, the colour looks much nicer on me, but the finish of the blush is not as nice, it's full of giant gold glitter. Luckily they mostly fall of, when you apply the blush)
