Liquid - shu uemura - Face Architect Smooth Fit Fluid Foundation

I tested this foundation today but I won't purchase. The finish is matte, not too flat, but on me it isn't natural but rather visible. My skin (dry-combination) is too dry for it, so at the end of the day my chin-area became a little patchy. It is very longlasting, that is a pro. From farther away, my skin still looks absolutely perfect. It also feels really nice, in fact I can't …Read more

Sunscreen - CLINIQUE - Sheer City Block SPF 25

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/15/2014

Shame on Clinique! I tried the City Block 25 and am loving it. The slight tint, the feel on my skin - all very pleasant.
Now I have to find out that the European version of this DOES NOT contain zinc oxide and therefore has very little UV-A protection. I am bummed and will not repurchase unless I can get my hands on the US-version. Really Clinique, this sucks!

Liquid - Estée Lauder - Invisible Fluid Makeup [DISCONTINUED]

4.0

Jan/25/2013

Very nice foundation! Natural looking, not cakey at all and it doesn't enhance dry patches. I really like it to even out my skintone and get a natural every day look. I just apply with my fingers, it blends very easily.

The finish is not too glowy and not too matte, I'd say it's satin. I like it, because it really just looks like my skin, no need for powder or shimmer …

Lip Treatments - Dior - Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss

5.0

Dec/30/2012

Oh, how much I love the Dior Lip Maximizer!
I haven't noticed a plumping effect, but I don't care. The scent is heavenly - I love the vanilla-minty smell, sweet and fresh. The gloss has a very fine pinky-red shimmer. It's not over the top glitter, I promise. It's very subtle. The look is not overly wet but just glossy, which I prefer.

The best thing is the …

Lotions/ Creams - L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/22/2012

This handcream smells divine! I lovelove the scent which is why I am extra disappointed with the performance. At first, my hands feel nice, not greasy and quite soft. But it doesn't last at all. It's not protective in the slightest. My hands get dry again very quickly and I have to keep re-applying way too often. Because I need a rather generous amount, one tube will not last long …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Koala Bear-y

I don't know what OPI did differently here, but this polish stands out qualitywise. I am a OPI fan in general, but Koala Bear-y lasts even longer than the usual OPI. It's amazing!

The color is gorgeous, bright, but not neon-in-your-face pink. Beautiful! Would repurchase if I ran out.

Lotions/ Creams - alverde - Macadamia Nut Body Butter

May/26/2012

This is my favorite body cream in the whole wide world and I have repurchased it tons of times already.

I can see why it's called a body butter, the formula is quite thick. But it's not as greasy as you'd expect of a body butter, so personally, I think it's rather a very thick moisturizer. Anyhow, this is makes my dry skin oh so soft and nourished. Even on my face …

Highlighters - The Body Shop - Tinted Glow Enhancer - Shade 02

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/26/2012

I really really love this product! The effect on my cheeks is just lovely - a subtle, pearly glow. It's not glittery at all, a very fine shimmer that is only noticable as such in direct sunlight. I find this to be one of the very rare products that actually give a luminous effect. Usually, I am not a fan of highlighting and I don't like glitter. This, I use frequently.

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Haux

I have had Haux forever in my stash and I love it!
Does it look like the most boring shade in the world in the pan? Yes. Does it look amazing on the lid and gives every eye make up a polished finish? YES! Haux is so flattering on my skin (fair with neutral/cool undertones, N1 in Face and Body). It is the perfect color to subtly define the crease and add some depth. I also like to use a tiny …
