Not sure why the hype on this foundation. The color was a good match and great packaging but that is where the pros end.

Purchased color 4.0 for my NC20 skin. I have dehydrated skin so I tend to always prep my skin well before daily make-up routine. This foundations does not sit well. I've tried using a beauty blender and a brush and with both tools the foundations separates …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Mascara - Carbon Black

Jul/21/2012

Do to the hype, I really wanted to love this mascara. Unfortunately, it weighs my eyelashes down. It does not hold a curl at all.

I have thick and heavy eyelashes which is why I struggle to find a good mascara. ALL normal formulas weigh my eyelashes down, cheap or expensive none hold a curl on my lashes. This one was no exception :-(

Due to the difficulty of removing …

Treatments (Face) - Dior - Capture Totale One Essential Skin Boosting Super Serum

Jun/02/2012

I was given a sample of this product at Sephora and of course tried it. I was applying a tiny yet sufficient amount AM and PM for as long as the sample lasted (about 3 to 4 weeks)

Did it work? Not that I can tell.

It has a pleasant very subtle scent, goes on easy, absorbs rapidly but other than that, I wasn't enticed to purchase the product after finishing the …

Moisturizers - Olay - Regenerist Flawless Skin cream SPF 30

May/09/2012

I really did go on a whim when purchasing this product a year ago as it was £30 at the drugstore.

I cannot say good enough things about Olay Regenerist spf30! I can't really say it has done anything for my pigmentation spots or my two wrinkles (smile lines) but I absolutely love how quickly it absorbs without leaving any white residue. It's high spf means my face is …

Absolutely LOVE this brush. Very dense yet extremely soft on the face and the liquid foundation application (I like to stipple) goes on flawless!

Have washed it many times with MACs brush cleaner and it has never sheded (I've had it for almost a year)

Beyond expectations! A definite must have for all makeup lovers.

Apr/02/2012

I cannot rave enough about this product!

I have always had a difficult time finding the right pencil/powder color for my eyebrows. I like to have both to achieve different looks. I have tried various brands ($ to $$$) and to be very honest, this pencil is top quality.

The color is an exact match for my eyebrows (brown/black/greyish). Easy to use and sharpen. Glides on …

Jun/27/2011

After trying several good and not so good brands for split nails, I decided to give this one a go.

Nail growth has never been and issue but splitting nails has. Do to my splitting nail problem is that I decided to go with acrylic nails for many many years. When I moved to Europe I had to give up that luxury as it was ridiculously expensive to get these done. So I endured the pain of …

Eye Shadow - Barry M - Dazzle Dust

Jun/26/2011

I want them ALL!!! I am in love with these little pots.

The shadows are highly pigmented, very smooth and beautiful. It is important that I mention that you really need to learn how to use these properly so that you are not disappointed with a shimmery shiny face. It is an absolute MUST, and I cannot stress this enough, you MUST apply primer to your eyelids prior to using any of your …

Top/Base Coats - Sally Hansen - Double Duty Base & Top Coat

2.0

May/12/2011

So I purchase this 2n1 Double Duty product thinking "great, I've gt my top and base coat covered with the added bonus of strengthening." Sadly, I did not get exactly what I was after. Yes it gives great shine as many top coats do BUT this product makes my polish peel. Doesn't matter what polish I use, next day it peels in a single sheet. Product itself dries very quickly as …Read more
