I really wanted to love this foundation because it seems to be kinder to skin than regular foundations but unfortunately it doesn’t quite work for me. I want to give this foundation 3,5 lippies.

The application is a bit tricky to master and it requires quite a lot of buffing, otherwise the finish will be uneven - some areas will be cakey, while others will be almost bare …

I don’t love this cleanser but I can see that it works for a lot of people! It cleans decently for a non-foaming product and doesn’t strip off the skin, very gentle.

I have used it in the mornings during the winter. I wouldn’t use it for make-up removal but it does a good job freshening up the face after a night’s sleep. I live in quite a harsh cold climate so I appreciate that this …

I really enjoy using this mask. It has a lovely ”grainy gel” texture and it smells delicious! Also, it comes in a beautiful jar.

I use this mask in the evenings and my skin does look more even in the morning
after. I find the mask to be mild, perfect for those who are new to AHA’s. It does not irritate my skin at all. And as a new mom, I appreciate that I only need to leave it on …

This is another great concealer by MAC. I bought it because I wanted something that is easier to apply than Pro Longwear. This stuff is definitely easy to apply and you only need the tiniest amount so it is great value for money. That tiny pot will last for ages!

This concealer lasts the whole day and gives good coverage. I find it to be particularly suitable for us oily types. As …

I have used this shampoo three times. I had huge expectations for it given all the reviews and don’t get me wrong - this is a good shampoo but I am a bit underwhelmed with the whole line as it is not as hydrating as I expected. But back to the shampoo:

I shampoo my hair twice every wash. This shampoo has a lovely texture and scent. It lathers a lot and it is nice to work with. It feels …

I use this on my under eye area. This is the best concealer I have ever tried and I will most likely keep repurchasing. The simple reason for that is that it lives to its claims - it stays on all day! It also has a great shade range that I believe will suit most people. And that bottle is going to last forever as a little goes a looong way, which is good considering the pricetag.
This does …

Meh. This mascara is just okay. I found that one coat doesn’t do much, but 2+ coats will make lashes clumpy. Doesn’t do much as far as lenght is concerned, but adds some volume. I will not budge during the day, which is a plus, but I find it so difficult to remove in the evening. I just do not have the time and patience to spend half an hour trying to remove it every evening.
I gave it three …

I have only used this stuff four times so I will have to come back with an update later. What I can tell so far is that this treatment makes hair very shiny and also gives it texture. I like the way my hair looks after using this. It also seems to be good for the scalp as my dandruff is gone but - it does make my roots a bit oilier than usual. Make sure to rinse it out very well!

So …
