Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Amplified Creme - Chatterbox

One of the few lipsticks ever I would say I might be able to end. I've got far over 200 lipsticks in my collection but this one is special. I'm very fair skinned (N5-N10) with a neutral undertone so on me it doesn't look pastel at all, it's a medium pink but with the milkiness of a pastel, it's so amazing! And of course it's an amplified creme, what is there to …Read more

Finally I've found an opponent to MAC Shroom! I've used Shroom as a face highlighter for so long, and even though I absolutely love it I've wanted something less champagne and more pure gold. And there was Nylon! How could I have missed it?



With my ultra fair skin (N5-N10) most highlighters leave a trace of colour on the face, and not just a tinted sheen if …

The name is tacky and the typography is a fiasco that makes the bottle look cheap. Apart from those (really not that important) cons I love this scent. Really really really do! A soft peachy floral that screams "no sorrow darling!" loud enough for me to really feel it now and then. I like wearing this scents when I know I'll have a tough day, just because of that fact.

I …

If you're searching for the perfect deep red polish, I guess this isn't it. At least it wasn't for me.. Too much fuchsia in it to feel like a genuine red, but yeah, of course it's beautiful. So if you're aware of that and WANT a deep fuchsia red, go for it! It's like jam.

A beautiful dark berry red, elegant and gothic. Will look amazing for autumn. Apply thick flowy layers, or else it applies uneven because of the jelly finish. Let me dip this beauty in dark chocolate and eat it, please!

The perfect dark red jelly. Simple as that! A deep blood red shade with amazing depth, a tad blue based, but just enough to make it look fresh and cool without turning fuchsia at all. Dracula red, basically! Dark without looking blackened, red without looking firetruck-y. Amazing result in 2 or 3 coats. My search is over.

I absolutely understand why people find this offensive and awful. The cumin is very "sweaty" and before it settles down, well, that's what you get. A skanky sweaty cumin. Those first minutes I seriously just hold my breath and wave my arms arount to make it settle as fast as possible, because to be honest it's quite gross there for a while. But when it finally settles this …Read more

My favourite bright coloured eyeshadow palette ever. The best shades in this one kicks serious ass! The highlighter on the left and the two blacks are a bit unneccessary, I don't find myself using them that much. But the other ones (THE TURQUOISE, AARGH!) are beyond awesome.

Shadows are super pigmented, soft as silk (I would compare them to the MAC matte2 to the feel) and they …

I love you matte2! The pigmentation and texture is amazing, it feels like velvet. This is a great shade for really dark smokey eyes, lovely worn with cranberry or purple shades because of the slight purple tinge, but it's awesome on its own too.

Hell YES! The most perfect brown shadow ever. This one is my go to shade and I seriously love it.

I've often got problems finding browns that suits my natural coloring, my fair skin and dark brown hair are both very ashy. When I got this the MAC employee I talked to said "Should you really get a shade THIS ashy for your brows..?" to me, and I was like "HAHA yeah I …
