I've had perfect-looking (if dry) skin naturally until relatively recently, because I'm 40 now and time stops for no-one. This product has had the most visible effect on my skin once I started using it daily - twice a week did nothing for me. It looks better than it has in +15 years and I even got compliments again. No foundation would ever make it look this good (and I feel zero need …Read more

Ok, so this is a very pricy product, at least in Europe. I'm not into pricy products mostly, but I still repurchase because this one is really worth it for me. It does last a fair amount of time with the use I give it. I'd like a flip top cap for this one, for the rest the packaging is fine.

First let me say I have very dry everything: skin, hands, lips, hair (also very …

I cannot say enough good things about this because it has helped me through the worst of my eyelid/browbone eczema. The urea and lactate in it are the key ingredients, I think. I have tried other products with them (some of them also by Eucerin) but this cream is still the best for me with a big difference.

I just deleted a couple of paragraphs in which I went into too much detail …

I'm reviewing the Matte Black eyeliner (liquid) which I got at 2,99 €. There seems to be a little bit of everything in this review page...

Very nice packaging, nice enough brush, good staying power.

That's about it for positive things, because this thing is super uncomfortable once it dries. It kind of wrinkles (it actually looks wrinkled if you look up close) and …

I have 01 Beige pastel with SPF 30 in a beige tube (no golden line on the black cap). I don't find that this one is available anymore, I see them in back tubes, which may or may not be the same product. I bought it in a store in Belgium and it was the lightest shade available, it seems different shades are available in different countries (I hate that, guys, consistency …Read more

I have the tube with the old packaging with the leaves on it, they still seem to carry this product with different packaging, and I have not tried that. Once I tried it I liked it so I got an extra back up tube, so I can say I have already repurchased. When I run out it is possible I will try it in the new packaging, unless I find another product I like better, as I don't like to have too …Read more

Sep/01/2015

I am skeptic of synthetic fibre brushes for powder products, but this one is good.

It is an angled, relatively fluffy brush, supposedly for corners and crease, but I find it too large for that (I’d use a small dome brush instead). I think it works better for larger areas. I have to say it is my first angled eyeshadow brush, and I don’t find any particular advantage to this shape …

Best red ever :°)

Update September 2015:

Ok, this is still possibly my favourite lipstick ever, and I realise the above review is not very helpful ;P So why do I like this one so much?

-First, the colour is perfect. On my lips, it is really a neutral red, neither warm nor cold.
-Second, the texture is both pretty and comfortable. It is a velvety …

Since my favourite red nail polish was discontinued (snif), I found a very good substitute for the perfect red, and it is YSL's #3.

Perfect fluidity, opacity, wearability and an amazing deep, classic red. As with most cream, pigmented colours, I like to apply a top coat to make it really glossy. With a base coat, two layers of red, and a top coat, the manicure lasts an entire …

I have Nocturnelle (black).
This nail polish is quite sheer, very fluid (a bit streaky), so two to three coats are necessary. It doesn't dry too fast, but it doesn't take too long either. Quite glossy, but it still needs a top coat, I think.
The quality is just average, it wears off at a similar rate than a not-too-cheap drugstore nail polish, but it doesn't readily …
