OK, there is really, really no need anymore to buy expensive mascaras, I discovered.

This one delivers it all: curve, length, volume, long-lasting, and all that for a fraction of what you'd pay for a Chanel, YSL or Benefit mascara.

Plus, the packaging doesn't look that bad either.

Not much more to say, really: this is a great mascara that turns my …

Lipstick - Sephora Collection - Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick (All Shades)

I am a sicker for matte red lips, so I expected to love this in True Red...and I did- for about an hour.

The color is saturated, vibrant and beautiful, lasting power amazing, but the formula is beyond drying: it will turn your lips into a barren dessert field, suck all water out of them and shrink your pout into a sad, thin and dry picture of what your lips might look like if you live …

What?! I just found out that it was discontinued! Why, Mac??? Why make a perfect eyeliner (well, apart from the brush) that doesn't move, doesn't smudge, doesn't do anything you wouldn't want it to do and then have it discontinued?! Was it killing all your other eyeliners? I am genuinelly pissed because of this kind od marketing gimmicking. Really dissapointed. I will survive …Read more

Pure, simple formula in high concentration, I say- if you can lay your hands on it, don't miss a chance and grab a big tube!

It should be said that even though the name indicates that it's a cream, it is more suitable to be used as a serum: it will sink right in and leave no trace on the skin. I layer it on top of my Vitamin C serum and beneath SPF cream and BB cream. For …

Apr/01/2016

Now and then, I try some new drugstore mascaras, hoping I'd find a decent dupe for high end mascaras I use (Chanel & They are real! by Benefit most of all). Usually, the experiments end up with me not using them at all and concluding that I have just wasted my money, because they never work to a level any near comparable to the expensive mascara brands. Damn.

My eyelashes are …

I must be a packaging snob, because that was what kept me from trying it out before. I mean, why would anyone pack such a high-priced product into a fun, drugstore- looking tube? It looks like it should cost no more then 5-10 Euros.

On a recent trip abroad when I found myself in an urgent need for a mascara that would perform amazingly for the night (I had a terrible hangover and …

I am a big fan of Chanel makeup and their lipstick in "Fire" is my all time favorite red. Perhaps my expectations were set too high (and perhaps they should be, considering the price), but I feel disappointed with this one.

The color is beautiful, peachy/ rosy nude with a slight shimmer - so slight that even as a devotee of matte lipsticks I found it perfectly acceptable …

Last summer I had eyelash extensions before the holiday and I was amazed how much long, curly eyelashes can make you look and feel beautiful even without a trace of makeup.

I have naturally short and straight eyelashes and I have tried and used many high-end mascaras, and while some of them were really good, this one is the only one that actually makes my eyelashes look like when I …

Instant freshness!

This is an amazing blush, used with a very light hand. I find that exciting too, this "balancing on the edge" or "playing with fire" the application of this blush turns into. Just a bit too much looks waaaaaay too much! Just a little, tiny touch of the brush and whoa: you turn into this fresh-faced, 9-hours sleeping milkmaid (or sunlit sea siren …

I try this blush every now and then again, hoping that this time it would reveal its amazingness to me. Yes, all the hype that surrounds it gets to me and makes me curious to discover what is it all about. In a way, I want to like it.

But every time I am shocked and turned off again by all the glitter. I see nothing fresh on my face, just this glittery balls my cheekbones turn into …
