Liquid - Bourjois - Healthy Mix Foundation

I love this foundation. Since I'm very pale, it has always been hard for me to find a product that wouldn't make me look like I was trying to move into the Jersey Shore house. But then I found this! The lightest shade is pretty much exactly my skin color. I have very sensitive skin as well, and usually I only use high-end products to make sure it doesn't break out - Healthy Mix …Read more

Conditioner - TIGI - S-Factor Diamond Dreams Conditioner

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/19/2012

Normally, I'm a fan of TIGI products. I loved the Honey&Oatmeal series (whatever happened to that?), and some of their Bedhead stuff. So I had relatively high expectations when I treated myself to the S Factor Diamond Indulgence pack for Christmas, which contains the Shampoo, Conditioner, and Dream Drops.
As soon as I opened the package, I almost fainted from the smell of that …

Fragrances - Thierry Mugler - Angel Eau de Parfum

I got this as a gift once, and oh boy, do I hate this fragrance. I find it sickening, and it gives me a tremendous headache. Whenever I run into someone who's wearing Angel, I try to breathe as little as possible. It's almost like it hits you in the head with a sledgehammer; heavy, sticky and overpowering. Not my cuppa tea at all.

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Box O'Powder Blush - Dandelion

Jan/04/2012

This was the first blush I ever bought. As someone who was initially afraid of going OTT with their blush, I wanted a nice, subtle shade which would just make me look a bit more fresh and glowy. I instantly loved Dandelion, and I still do. It smells lovely, the packaging is adorable, and the blush itself is so light and subtle you really have to pack on quite a bit to even notice it. I'll …Read more

Fragrances - Bulgari - OMNIA Crystalline edt

5.0

Jan/04/2012

One of my alltime favourites. The first thing that comes to my mind when I smell it is that it's so soft and fresh, it's almost ethereal. It's very clean, soothing, and definitely not an "in your face" scent. I'm finding it hard to categorize it - if I had to describe it somehow, I'd say it smells like the air after a summer rainstorm, fresh and peaceful …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - GUERLAIN - Meteorites Perles Light Diffusing Perfecting Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/04/2012

This is my absolute favourite beauty product. My complexion is very pale and unless I use some sort of foundation, I look a bit sick and tired. Just one blob of this fantastic, luxurious product makes my skin glow as if I'd had 10 straight hours of sleep.
I love the texture of this primer, too. It's a gel-like liquid with little powder pearls in it which burst upon pumping and …

Palettes - Urban Decay - Book of Shadows Vol. III

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/04/2012

I really wish I could give this palette a rage review, but unfortunately, it's just sitting on my dressing table looking cute.
I absolutely LOVE the design and the colours are amazing; however, almost every single shadow creates such massive fallout that I gave up trying to use them, and I REALLY wanted to make it work. Can't bring myself to sell it, because it's just ever so …
