Highly pigmented fuchsia with strong blue undertones and sheen (not visible in the pan) that I believe looks best on medium to darker complexions. The texture is velvety and once blended, it’s fully opaque. Since there is some very fine shimmer it doesn’t look dry or powdery on the skin. Unfortunately, the colour is not the right one for me. It is way too dark to flatter my pale complexion and …Read more

I have this in Pink Tank, lovely, bright (but not too bright) coral pink that I believe could look good on almost any skin tone. It’s fully opaque in one coat and two coats provide an instant gel-like colour and shine. Very good wide brush makes the application quick and easy, even and non-streaky. It does not stain my nails and it does not dry them out. Furthermore, the polish is impressively …Read more

I love how this lovely raspberry pink colour livens up my face and how it feels on my lips. It applies nicely and evenly, gives really nice shine and moisturises, but It transfers and bleeds easily so both the colour and the shine fade very quickly, and I need to reapply it almost hourly. I wouldn’t mind a quick, hassle-free touch-up, but because this migrates out of my lip line, I first have …Read more

This neutral medium pink blush is a lovely everyday blush that gives a subtle colour without any drama. I’m fair-skinned with cool undertones and on me it shows up as a soft, shy peachy-pink, a bit too shy to my liking. According to the manufacturer, “this blush and highlighter hybrid” features a “unique cream-powder matrix system that helps this airy powder stay put for up to eight hours” …Read more

One of the worst polishes I have ever tried. The colour is lovely, bright (but not too bright) pink that I believe could look good on almost any skin tone. Very good brush, not too wide, not too thin, picks up the right amount of polish which applies nicely and evenly. It dries fairly quickly, in some 15 minutes my nails were dry to touch. Unfortunately, by the end of day one, I started noticing …Read more

This strong bright pink blush with cool undertones is richly pigmented, with matte finish. The colour may look somewhat scary in a pan, but it looks very natural on me (I’m fair-skinned with strong cool undertones), it instantly livens up my face giving me a healthy flush and glow. The texture is velvety, a bit dusty, but it doesn’t look dry or powdery on the skin. However, for some reason …Read more

Very good micellar water/toner/make up remover. It is quite gentle and there is no detectable scent, which is great, it does not irritate my very sensitive skin, nor does it bother my allergy prone eyes. It effectively removes the dirt and all the makeup from my face and the skin feels clean and toned. But, it’s not as effective on my eye makeup. I use tons of dark shadows and liners and It …Read more

This removes my eye makeup in seconds. I don’t use mascara, so I can’t comment on how it performs on that front, but I do wear tons of dark shadows and liners and this dissolves them in a swipe. It does not irritate my very sensitive eyes nor is it heavily scented, which is a big bonus. However, mixing the two phases is not as easy as you may think, the phases separate almost instantly so I need …Read more

This make up remover is strongly scented and pretty useless. I have extremely sensitive eyes, I never wear mascara nor do I use waterproof makeup, so the removal of my make up is usually fast and easy. Not with this one. While it did not irritate my eyes, it did not easily remove my make up either. It took lots of rubbing and pulling with little to no success. Not expensive but not effective …Read more
