Treatments (Face) - Neostrata - Renewal Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/29/2013

I had never used NeoStrata before.
I'm now using up my first tube of Renewal cream and have already repurchased it,
sth I very very seldom do, as I love to try out new skin care (and make up) products
and I'm always on the look out for sth new and better.
This is an excellent cream, at an affordable price, that I use at night, as it has no SPF.
Nice …

Treatments (Face) - Dior - Capture R60/80t Bi-Skin Inside R-Flash Ultra Lissant Instantané

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/10/2013

The ultra lissage instanee from the line Capture R60/80 is
a transparent, lightweight and fluid serum containing micro particles that illuminate the skin, diffuse and reflect light.
It hydrates and smoothes out fine lines. It can be used as a primer/moisturizer if you have combination or, even better, oily skin. It's pricey, but a bit goes a long way, one pump is enough for the …

Treatments (Face) - Estée Lauder - Perfectionist [CP+] Targeted Deep Wrinkle Filler

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/10/2013

The packaging would be a good one (tube with a pointed dispenser for optimal dosage) if it were not so hard to squeeze. The cream is thick and a bit gluey, I only use it for my two frown lines between the eyebrows and on the upper lip. If I use just a bit more it leaves a whitish, sticky layer.
I’m sorry to say that in my case it does nothing or, at best, very little for my wrinkles. So I …

Eyes - TALIKA - EyeLash Conditioning Gel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/11/2013

It works!
I started out with a small sized tube (0.14oz - 4,2ml) and ended up buying the 0.34oz (10ml) version.
It conditions and hydrates the lashes beautifully and I noticed an improvement only after a few days of application (once a day, in the morning). I have been using it for about a month now and my lashes are stronger, lusher and softer to the touch. I couldn't say if they …

Eye Primer - Lancôme - Instant retouch pen

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/12/2013

Ok, it's true!
A bit goes a long way, but all the same I find it too pricey.
I bought nr 1 (lightest hue), it's a beautiful ivory hue.
The results I get with it are not good, though (unlike with the eclat miracle primer).
I mostly use it as primer for the undereye area, just to illluminate the look. If you need a concealer to cover dark circles or the like, forget …

Primer/ Corrector - Lancôme - Eclat Miracle

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/12/2013

I bought it and stuck it in a drawer. Now I ask myself why because it's really good quality.
It's rather pricey, but not that much, especially if you use it as a highlighter on strategic areas, such as cheekbones and outer brow bones. In this case it will last ages!
Despite non using foundation, I’ve tried to apply it as it should, i.e. as a highlighter, and I’m happy with …

Blush - Calvin Klein - Flush with Desire - Desire

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/12/2013

I bought flush with desire (in desire) at half its price.
CK make up wasn't obviously doing well here in Germany
and since then this brand is no longer sold.
The packaging is very good: simple, elegant, sleek, practical. I can't express an opinion on the brush because I use my fingers to dab blush. I find you can dose it much better and blend and fix the color on the …

Blush - Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge - Blushed Rose

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/12/2013

Pot rouge by BB in blushed rose is the second make up product (after clinique black honey) I have bought without having seen or tried it before. I was convinced by the many positive reviews I read and decided to run the risk.
As this brand is only sold in a limited number of stores in Germany, I ordered it online on the BB official page.
I must confess I was rather annoyed by the …

Lipstick - CLINIQUE - Almost Lipstick - Black Honey

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/11/2013

Now I can say it.... Yes, it's true!
Black honey is an absolute must have.
I was skeptical, I feared it would be too dark for me. It's not.
I bought it after having read innumerable reviews,
99% of them positive. First time ever that I buy sth without having seen or tried it.
I had to order it from the US; I live in Germany and I'm often in Italy. In …

Toners - Dr. Hauschka - Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/15/2012

It's not a bad toner, but I wouldn't buy it again.
And I'll tell you why.
First of all, this is my first try with Dr Hauschka products.
I live in Germany and here you can find this brand very easily. It's usually sold in bio shops (i.e. stores for organic products).
The price is medium-high: higher than drugstore brands and cheaper than brands like Estee …
