Mascara - essence - I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara

I didn't it get at first and I thought "wow, this should be called Clump Craze!", but as I managed to use the brush with such a thick mascara this is the one I reach for over and over! Won't irritate the eyes nor flake. It lasts a long time on but won't hold if accidentally rub the eyes like, say, Maybelline mascaras do. I have medium length, averaged up curled lashes …Read more

Cleansers - NIVEA - Aqua Effect Soothing Cleansing Mousse

A great cleanser. It not harsh on the skin - at least now that is summertime. I use it twice a day. Cleanses well but not perfectly - if you are wearing a more complete makeup it will take twice to remove it (that is why the 4 lippies). But as I have said, it nor harsh on the skin, like a cream cleanser, plus it is refreshing as a foaming cleaser without requing the lathering and lavish rinse …Read more

This is just great. It really pumps up the hair volume looking natural and it is not as drying as similar products. The volume lasts well until next washing... after which I realize how fine and limp my hair really is!... I finish with a shine spray as it leaves hair looking duller than normal - it contains alcohol as a second ingredient and I am really suprised it is not so drying.

Lip Gloss - L'Oreal Paris - Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain [DISCONTINUED]

Okayyy... so I really liked the colours (Lilac ever after and Nude, sheerer, and Coral tatoo and Red, more opaque and bright) and the effect. It wore for a great decent amount of time. But, after wearing it on nude lips for two full days in a row, my lips are more than dry, they seem downstraight burnt. Today is the second day I am treating them with lots of moisture and wearing a Juicy Tubes …Read more

The formula is good, but nothing special for a high-end foundation. It feels light and lasts. Not matte to the point of being cracky or dull-looking.
However, and I believe this is why this one has been discontinued, the colour changes so much, about two shades, that I see a lot of people returning it from being mismatched. In my case, I bought it in winter, it will fit me in the sunny …

Lipstick - REVLON - Color Stay Ultimate Suede Lipstick

Mar/13/2013

I wish I liked this. The colours are great. The finishing, interesting. The big drawbacks are: drying, unflattering on the slightest sign of dry lips, as it dries the hell out of them, after a few minutes it becomes patchy on the wet line inside the outer lips - I've tried everything to make it look good. It stays long, but not in a pretty way. I got it in Flashing Lights; and too bad I …Read more

Lipstick - NYC New York Color - Ultra Moisturirizing in Petal 314B

Cheap looking, cheap feeling. It tints the lips unevenly, dries them. Overall, plainly awful.
EDIT: I melted it with a teasp. cera alba (it improves adherence) and 6 drops of oil (used Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse) (for smoothness, emolience, enhances the shine), put it in a jar and it is better now.

Mascara - Maybelline New York - One by One Volum' Express [DISCONTINUED]

I hated this mascara at first, it did nothing but meh and clumping. So I decided to try it with another brush - the one that comes with my (old) Colossal. It turned out quite right, no clumping, more volume and length. More than enough for work, enough for nights out - without a super dramatic effect though. Definitely not a natural look, so to speak, and definitely not meh. No flaking.
