I'm really thrilled for finally having the chance of trying this product, and getting to know what all the fuss on beauty blogs was about.
It took me a bit of time to find a good opportunity for purchasing it - the price is a bit high - but recently I've discovered an exclusive promotion at an online store that included a small tube (50 ml.) of this body butter.

Liquid - Bourjois - Healthy Mix Foundation

If you aim for a medium coverage, semi-matte, oil-free and radiance-enhancing foundation, your quest is over: this is the one.

I must confess that at first I was a bit worried that my usual oil-free requirement was not mentioned, but there was no reason for it - works just as fine (or even better!) as all the explicitly oil-free foundations I've used so far. Its consistency is not …

BB Cream - RIMMEL - BB Cream 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup SPF 25

Feb/27/2013

This is the first time ever that I consider a foundation to be overly matte for my skin. Let me explain it: my complexion is so oily that my main concern with make up is typically to conceal the shine excess and dewy look. Thus, the key-moment on my everyday make up routine is setting it with powder and make it look as natural as possible.

Well, this product changed my mind - there is …

It was on discount in my local department store, so I decided to give it a chance and see what all the fuss was about.

First of all, good packaging choice: the sponge applicator is way more hygienic than the pots in which you have to rub you finger over and over again. It works better this way, since you can also have a better control of the amount of product you are using.

Moisturizers - Caudalie - Huile Divine

Feb/21/2013

There are only good things to tell about this product, a true cosmetic gem.

Since I have an oily complexion from my early teens, I tend to be very careful with oil remedies and fear that the mere act of applying them to body parts other than my face would leave my hands too greasy - which would end up putting that extra grease on my face and increasing the sebum production. Well, if …

Body Scrubs - Caudalie - Crushed Cabernet Scrub

5.0

Feb/04/2013

This scrub is an almost literal translation for my idea of gourmet skincare products. Not only it smells deliciously (a rich blend of essential oils with citrusy-floral notes) and the texture is a true delight (grainy yet not at all harsh - like a fruit puree), but it does make your skin silky soft and beautifully bright.
Unfortunately, I only own the small size that comes with the Huile …

Jan/19/2013

I got this conditioner for free at a beauty event in a really huge 500 ml. bottle and started using it with no expectations at all (besides from trying to get rid of such an enormous packaging). Until then, none of the products I've seen from the brand caught my attention, as I didn't consider any of them would help me with the specific issues of my hair - sebum excess and loss of …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm Blush

No wonder this product is considered an absolute classic in the makeup universe. Its rosy-coral shade with very subtle golden shimmer flatters every complexion and its awesome pigmentation allows it to stay put all day long, unlike all the other blushes I've tried so far (it's the only one that still shows traces on the skin until I perform my nighttime cleansing routine).

Skincare - Face - NUXE - Phytochoc serum

Sep/29/2012

Sad to say for such a nice brand, but this isn't an amazing product. I only bought it because it had a big discount (50% off) but I'd lie if I'd say that I expected something average from Nuxe.
It was supposed to be an anti-aging eye and face serum suitable for daily use and all skin types and promised a brighter and more toned skin. But the truth is that besides from a …

Eye Shadow - Sleek MakeUP - i-Divine Palette - Oh So Special

Sep/15/2012

There is not a single reason not to love this palette. The color selection is discreet, versatile and not over-the-top, full of instant classics. The pigmentation quality is awesome, almost hard to believe considering the price of the product (10 euros in my local Sephora store).Lasts all day on your eyelids, does not stray or irritate the skin and makes the glance very luminous. The packaging is …Read more
