My biggest disappointment of all time.I rarely say this about a product as most things happen to work for me, but this one was a complete letdown.

Let me share the positive first:

It leaves a tacky texture on the skin so foundation goes on and adheres to skin a little better.
The pump is sealed shut so there's no way the gel will evaporate slowly. The packaging is …

I had absolutely no intention to buy yet another palette but this was love at first swatch. Glittery shades were SO incredibly pigmented that I just couldn't resist. No regrets though, this is an excellent one.

It has a nice matte transition shade, a nice matte base shade, a brownish matte crease shade to deepen the crease and a pigmented semi-matte black shade to line. Also a …

I don't have dark circles, bags or wrinkles around my eyes. I bought this product to relax eye muscles and lessen squinting due to long hours spent in front of the computer. I'm also a good candidate for getting deep elevens between my brows so i thought this might help prevent some long term damage.

I just used this thingy and WOW did it feel good! My eyes feel like they got …

OMG.
This is like the BEST- and i mean BEST- brush for pressed powder contour-blush-highlight! Especially contour!

Where has this been all my life???

First time these kind of brushes launched i thought they were silly just like everyone else thought they were. Didn't even think of owning one. Many many months passed and while binge watching beauty gurus on youtube …

So, I guess I'm the only one on planet Earth to make this little thingy work.

I'm not that bad at lining but i do struggle to create straight lines from time to time.The first time i saw this product i said YES! to myself. Then i read the reviews and went NOPE. Then i watched some youtubers say positive stuff about this product's potential and i went MAYBE :) Finally, i …

I really like this. It's my first and current makeup remover.

The only negative side is that it's not enough to remove makeup all by itself.

First i remove most of it with micellar water and eye makeup remover and then I finish off with three pumps of this. It not only removes residue that micellar left behind, but also moisturizes skin to a beautiful silky satin …

May/03/2017

As someone lazy with long, thick, wavy, coarse, UNRULY hair, I've been too intimidated to try blow-drying my hair straight all my life. Seeing how hairdressers suffered to blow-style my hair and it usually took two people working on it, I thought I would NEVER even bother to try it myself.

Tangle teezer has been one of my trusted brands for hair care, seeing the quality of their …

I'm on my second tube and it's time for a review.

I really like how "dry" this feels on my face. All the other 50 spf sunscreens make me look pale and shiny like a disco ball. This behaves like a daily moisturizer, i forget i even have it on. It's light and comfortable.

I was very afraid that when they repackaged they might have also altered the …

Hair Styling Tools - Unlisted Brand - The Wet Brush

Apr/24/2017

This brush seemed promising, as it was as gentle as a tangle teezer and came with a handle. Reading all the positive comments online i decided to try this.

I'm very disappointed with it.

First of all, the bristles are too flimsy and are individually attached to the base; meaning they can (and will) bend in all directions and eventually come off after a few uses. The …

I really like this little massager.

At first i was skeptical; it seemed like one of those beauty gadgets that sounds like a miracle but ends up being useless.Besides, i thought massaging the delicate eye area would be a bad idea and tugging the skin would promote wrinkles. Also, why have a tool apply eye cream when you have your ring finger?

In spite of all these thoughts …
