This stuff is bulletproof. The only brow product that survives a whole day of work, sweaty workouts, days at the pool/beach, everything. The colours are excellent, I have 4 (fullsize) and 4,5 (travelsize) and while I can absolutely wear both of them, the 4,5 is slightly better since it's more neutral. I haven't had any problems with the product drying out, even though I've had the …Read more

Well, damn... This one was never even on my radar. I'm subscribed to a fragrance sample service, and after doing their quiz about preferences they pointed me to this one and even sent me a little vial of it. I wasn't really impressed with their choice for me, thinking it was along the lines of Pleasures or Sensuous, and I just generally dislike EL fragrances. But a few months later this …Read more

My go to mascara these days. Why, oh why have I never tried tubing mascara before?! They are bulletproof and give me the longest lashes ever. Volume not so much, but for that I'll use my beloved Sisley So Intense. The brush is small and thin, if accidentally do smudge myself it's easily taken care off. Never had any smudging or flaking. Love to see how it holds up in summer!

I love these eye patches! They are expensive af but man, they work. I use tret 0,05 three times a week, but strangely enough these patches still make such a difference, they truly are miracle workers. I have laughter lines, no darkness or puffiness, and those are pretty much gone after I've slapped these babies on for 30 mins. I use the remainder of the serum on my lips, works like a charm …Read more

Aimed towards bearded men but definitely a good cleanser for the beardless as well!! I use this as an AM facewash, it doesn’t foam but cleans very well. Smells nice & fresh, you don’t need a lot (the small pot lasts ages) and it (very gently) exfoliates thanks to pineapple enzymes. I’m used to strong acids so the exfoliating part doesn’t really do anything for me but it’s probably goodfor …Read more

This mascara is my ride or die waterproof mascara. Finally a decent volume mascara that stays put whatever you throw at it. Its really black, it’s glossy, it volumises and lengthens to infinity and beyond. And it has caring ingredients to boot, there is nothing on my mascara wish list that this mascara doesn’t have. Well, maybe availability... I have to buy it online at Beauty Bay or Cult Beauty …Read more

HG! This is an excellent primer for my lashes! I can wear it on its own for a natural, but defined, look that will not budge no matter how much sweat and/or water you throw at it. I also use it underneath Pure Color Envy Lash WP if I want dramatic volume and this combination really gives me the biggest & baddest lashes ever. I will not be without this ever again :).

I received a large sample of this through a perfume subscription service. As a big lavender fan I was very curious about this fragrance as it sounded right up my street. My signature scent is Serge Lutens Gris Clair, which leans more to the masculine and winter side of lavender, Lavandula is definitely more feminine and is better suited for spring/summer. It’s soft and warm and a very rounded …Read more

Yes, it contains alcohol. Yes, it is overpriced. But damn... This stuff really is so good! I use this in the AM after mild exfoliating and before EL ANR and the Ceramidin cream. Especially good after harsher PM treatments like retinol, Liquid Gold and Alpha Lipoic Acid, PTR Pumpkin Enzyme mask etc.

This is a product of which i'm not really sure if it really does anything but use it anyway as it doesn't hurt. I use this under retinol/retinoid products by TO, and for that it works fine.
