Price: $
Packaging: 5
Buy again? Yes, but I probably won't need to.

(Just a little heads-up, I don't have the original Molly Cosmetics Silisponge (a misleading name, btw), but the A'PIEU Silicone Puff. All of these silicone applicators are essentially the same, save for price and shape. Mine comes in a little protective pouch, which is why I rated the packaging …

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

Price: €€€€

Buy again? Maybe, if they included a pump.

Let me preface this my saying that I got it around 10€ cheaper from an online shop (regular price ~40€) after having lusted after it for well over two years. Nars isn't available where I live, so it was more of an infatuation with something I couldn't easily get, but when I got the chance I immediately …

Price: $$$

Buy again? Yes.

I won't bother with stating what this is and what it does, as others have done that already, so let me just tell you why I think this should be a staple in everyone's bathroom cabinet.

It's very similar to Vaseline in the way that you can use it on literally anything - unlike Vasline, though, it will actually …

Buy again? Not until they expand their shade range.

Before I throw out my two tubes of this after having tried to make them work for over a year (!) I decided to do a little review to help you guys determine if this is the right stuff for you.

As for the formula, it's nice and creamy (supposedly a dupe of the NARS Radiant Creamy …

Concealers - Catrice - Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer

Sep/12/2016

Price: $
Packaging: 5
Buy again? Yes.

Ever since discovering pinpoint concealing aka the Eldridge Technique, I have been on the hunt for an affordable concealer that would cover literally anything while still being somewhat imperceptible (which is the point of this concealing technique). I decided to start with liquids, and then move on to something creamy and more similar to …

Sunscreen - Avene - Derma-Pediatrics SPF 50+ Lotion For Children

Price: $$$$
Packaging: 4
Buy again? No.

I bought this sunscreen on a whim while on a vacation in Spain. I'm always making an effort to be properly protected at all times - yes, even in winter, even if it rains -, but I ran out of my usual body sunscreen in the middle of a city trip, so I had to quickly stop by a pharmacy and buy whatever SPF50+ they had lying around. I …

Price: $$

Buy again? Yes.

As someone who's been wearing lipstick from the age of 13, I think I'm qualified to say that this is one of the most nourishing and comfortable formulas on the market. It contains a lot of skin conditioning ingredients; I sometimes even use the colour 725 Simply Nude as a tinted lip treatment of some sorts.

I own …

Sep/07/2016

Price: $$
Packaging: 3
Buy again? No.

First off, let me map out what I expect my blushes to be and to do:
- shimmery or satin finish (I don't believe in matte blushes)
- preferably with a gold shimmer that acts as a subtle highlighter
- a "pinched cheeks" kind of colour (absolutely nothing deep or bright)
- reasonably pigmented, but no …

Jul/02/2016

Price: $$$
Packaging: 3
Buy again? No.

It's been a while since I've last worn it, but from what I can recall, the texture seemed to be quite nice, coverage about light to medium, and the finish satin, leaning on dewy. However, what made this product so unwearable for me was the colour - the fair shade looked more like medium, and the medium shade felt like a bad …
