Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick

5.0

Oct/14/2017

I despise liquid lipsticks. They're either expensive or they don't work, they require way too much work, are difficult to apply, uncomfortable to wear, and never last as long as advertised; once they start to wear off, they're impossible to fix on the go, and when you try to take them off, they either melt and stain the skin around your mouth or they refuse to come off …Read more

Masks - Deciem - The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

Aug/04/2017

I'm quite into this, but then again, I've loved everything I've tried from the Ordinary so far. It's inexpensive, efficient, and if you stick to using it as the instructions say, it'll last you for a very long time, since you only need about 10 drops to cover your entire face and neck.

Now, I've got combo skin with all kinds of fun additional problems - …

I bought this as a replacement for my Mac Lustre lipstick in Capricious. The shade is different - I got it in 09 Persian Red, which is a muted warm flesh-like red with microshimmer - but the formula is, in my opinion, actually better than the Lustre range from Mac. I'm very pale with colourless lips and most 'nude' lipsticks don't give me a 'nude' look; the pinks …Read more

Cleansers - LUSH - Dark Angels Facial Cleanser

Apr/20/2017

This is a great product for what it is - a facial treatment/scrub for 2-3 times a week - and what it costs - 10 euros for the big jar that will last you for about 6 months at least, since it's in dry form and won't spoil so quickly.

What it is not: a daily - or twice daily - face wash.

I have combination skin with seborrheic dermatitis on my oily T-zone with big …

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

5.0

Mar/28/2017

Best mascara I've ever tried, hands down. Separates, volumizes, lifts and curls, doesn't flake, doesn't irritate my eyes, and it's pretty damn water-resistant, too. I especially love the little spiky ball at the tip of the brush; it lets me actually reach those last two lash hairs at the outer corner of my eye, which makes a surprisingly visible amount of difference …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara

Mar/28/2017

This is quite crap. As we all know, mascara is a very personal choice, and this doesn't work for me at all. I have quite long eyelashes, but the individual hairs are very thin and soft. This mascara left me with the infamous 'Three Lashes' look. The first coat is okay - very natural looking, but okay - but once I try to build up a second coat, things start clumping like hell. It …Read more

Lip Treatments - LUSH - Honey Trap Lip Balm

The perfect lipbalm, to be completely honest.

The price is a bit up there; still, 10 euros isn't that outrageous, I think, not when some luxury lipbalms are upwards of 15 euros. And you do get a lot of product; I've had my tin for 4 months and I use it every day, and I still have more than two thirds of the tin left. I'd estimate a tin of this will last you a year. I …

Lips - Burt's Bees - Tinted Lip Balm - Red Dahlia

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/20/2017

This is one of the two products I've tried from this brand and both have been disappointing. I was really excited about trying Burt's Bees, it seemed like such a great all-natural brand, but so far, I'm extremely unimpressed.

This is an okay lipbalm, but the price makes it a big pass. If it was like two euros, I'd say sure, but for this price? Hell no. Get yourself …

Lipstick - SHISEIDO - Rouge Rouge Lipstick

Mar/17/2017

This lipstick is 99% perfect. My only complaint is that it bleeds, but for one I don't wear foundation regularly, so if you do, you won't even experience this problem, and while it does want to sneak into your fine lines, it doesn't stain them, so you can easily tidy up your lipline with a tissue halfway throughout the day. Or it can just be worn with a clear lipliner. It also …Read more

Palettes - Sleek MakeUP - Sunset palette

Feb/27/2017

I own three iDivine palettes: Bad Girl, All Night Long, and Sunset. I've written a general review of them over in the iDivine eyeshadow palette category, so you can click on there for more generalised info; and two reviews for the other two palettes. This is my last review for Sunset.

First things first, this palette is, in my opinion, quite dishonestly marketed. The shades in …
