This is great highlighter. 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”. All true. The texture is great, smooth and creamy and it applies nicely and easily. The color is light, shimmery champagne-pink-beige and when applied carefully and light-handedly it can be subtle …Read more

Eye Primer - GUERLAIN - Eye-Stay Primer

My understanding is that a product advertised as “smoothing and long lasting eyeshadow primer” is supposed to help keeping my shadow in place and help preventing creasing and smudging. Well, it does not. After several hours of wear, my shadow seriously fades and creases really badly which makes this product entirely useless. It cannot get even close to real, “proper” primers, like Too Faced …Read more

This is supposed to be “creamy moisturizing lipstick that delivers intense, long-wearing color, in a satin finish”. And it is very creamy, it glides on like a balm, but it transfers very easily and is prone to disappearing very quickly. It is really pleasant to wear, gives fantastic shine and is very moisturizing, but I need to reapply it every 2 hours which means it is miles away from …Read more

Not impressed. The formula is quite nice, creamy, buttery and well pigmented. It applies nicely and evenly and feels quite moisturising, so at first I thought it would be really hydrating and pleasant to wear. Unfortunately, after a couple of hours only, the moisturising feeling disappeared and I started to feel discomfort and dryness of the lips. The color was still there, but it looked cakey …Read more

Absolutely brilliant. Fantastic formula, creamy, buttery, well pigmented. According to the manufacturer, it offers smooth application with a luminous finish. All true. It glides on like the best balm and is fully pigmented, with glossy finish. It is incredibly moisturising, feels lightweight and is really comfortable to wear. After full 9 hours of wear, the colour is still there and my lips are …Read more

Quick and easy application. It does not irritate my sensitive eyes and is easy to remove. It goes on evenly, dries extremely quickly to a slightly glossy finish. It is perfect for drawing thicker, bold lines. Fine, precise lines might be a bit tricky as the tip of the pen is quite thick and you need to find an angle at which you will be able to draw a thinner line. Excellent staying power. I …Read more

Good brush and good consistency make this liner perfect for fine, precise lines. It does not irritate my sensitive eyes and is easy to remove. It dries fast to a glossy finish (glossier than I like, but it’s not a dealbreaker) and has a great staying power. I always apply a thin layer of Too Faced Shadow Insurance eye shadow primer, wait a few minutes and then apply my eyeshadow, eyeliner etc. …Read more

I use this as an under eye concealer and I am happy to report that it performs equally well as my hitherto favorite Chanel Éclat Lumiere. The formula is great, it’s non-drying, non-greasy, it’s well-pigmented, it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin and it stays put until removed. However, the colour range is rather limited and although no 010 (Porcelain) works great for my under eye area, it’s not …Read more

The quality is, as with most MAC blushes, very good. Texture is great, it’s soft and smooth, it blends quickly and it’s very easy to build the colour. On me it wears some 8-9 hours. Unfortunately, this soft candy pink with cool undertones is just not the color for me. I was hoping for a blush that would mimic a healthy, natural flush and glow but this particular shade just doesn’t work for my …Read more

The quality is, as with most MAC blushes, very good. It is soft and smooth and blends fairly easily, but it’s quite pigmented too, so it should be applied very carefully and with a light hand. The soft orchid purple colour with cool undertones looks pretty natural on me, instantly livens up my face giving me a healthy flush and glow. Unfortunately there is a subtle bluish sheen which turns …Read more
