I use this for my eyebrows.
I tried basically everything for my dark but not black brows: powder, pens, gel, whatever. Some things were plain horrible (too brown, too black, too meh), others were okay-ish.
This one is perfect. It stays, it has the perfect colour. It blends in. I use very very little product obviously because I do not work as a mime (though I love …

Sunscreen - Avene - 50 plus Spray for Children, 200ml [DISCONTINUED]

Jun/23/2016

Let me start with saying that this spray is still or again available - Avene just changes the ingredients occasionally, therefore I'll add the current formula at the bottom of my review.

I bought this sunscreen two times over the years - the first time is excused with curiosity, the second time I just forgot my former disappointment.
To be fair: It is not BAD. It is just not …

Unfortunately, I don't get the raving reviews. This mascara does nothing special for me. In fact, I found it particularly difficult to handle and to get something decent out of it.
First coat: okay-ish. Seen better. Seen worse.
Second coat: oh no. OH NO. Smearing to no end. Try again.

Pros:
- well ... blackens the lashes?
- can be removed easily (yeah …

I have a tendency to dry and sensitive skin. I use this occasionally when I want a bit more 'even-ing' (omg, damn bad pun). So far I never tested it for its suscreen abilities because where I live the sun does not (for clarification: I always use sunscreen and am just hinting at the amount of product I used), but since I so far had very good experiences with Bioderma sunscreens, I have …Read more

This mascara comes in a white-silver tube and the wand is slightly bent.
First, I had several smaller tubes of it (which came with different sample sets) and I found a liking in them: due to their smaller size, the mascara would not dry out. When I was finished with them, I purchased the original size.

It claims to add volume, definition and zing (verve, sweep, drive, pick your …

Mar/04/2016

Hm, I am not convinced. Bought this after I read the raves here.
Pros:
- does not sting in my eyes
- blackens my lashes (but that's about it, either I am spoiled by my current go-to-mascara by Avene or this mascara just doesn't do the trick for me)
- the brush is nice

Cons:
- smudges after a few hours. Funny thing: with this mascara, I don't …

I can only assume that the product I purchased was a flaw. My mascara is dry, clumpy and stings. Then again, it is quite difficult to remove - I always loose at least one lash and I am very careful, believe me. I don't know why we disagree that much. I really wanted to like it. But I just cannot tolerate it.
To be fair, my eyes are pretty sensitive at the time and I have similar …

Mascara - Catrice - Better Than False Lashes

Nov/06/2013

I needed another mascara since I had severe problems with my newly purchased Korres Provitamin B5 & Rice Bran Mascara. I didn't want to spend another crazy amount of money on a mascara and since I was quite happy with a few things I had purchased from Catrice over the last months (blush and eyeshadow) I thought to give the mascara a try as well.
The mascara costs about 5 euros in …

Sunscreen - Avene - Very High Protection Emulsion SPF50+ (2010 FORMULA)

I've been using this sunscreen for the last weeks, therefore I am still a bit cautious with praise. But so far, I like it a lot.
The packaging is excellent, it does not leave a ridiculous white cast if you fail to rubbing it in _very_ carefully (La Roche Posay Gel-Creme SPF 50+, I am looking at you).
So far, my sensitive skin tolerated it quite well, only gave me two small bumps …

I just finished my first tube. And I am still on the fence with this one.
Pro:
- My skin does not react allergic to it. Thank you!
- It is not greasy. My hair is not glueing all over my face. Thanks again.
- It can be layered without turning into a sticky mess (note: I am talking about several layers of this particular sunscreen NOT in addition with make up since I …
