It is so so similar to Vitalumiere Aqua. For me, the difference is too small to justify owning both. I have mixed skin, with an oily T-zone and I though I would like this more than the Vitalumiere Aqua since it is more geared towards my type of skin. BUT although it does give a more matte / velvety finish, I do prefere the luminosity of Vitalumiere Aqua.

Pluses
- the wand is tiny (same size like the bottom lash mascara from Clinique), so application is extremely precise. Not too much product comes out, not too little
- colour looks natural (i have the darker shade)
- does not smudge during the day

Minuses
- it dries out fairly quickly (you can see the wand coming out with clumpy dry fibers
- waaay too expensive …

Best dupe for Bioderma I have tried so far. Have been using it for a few months now and I cannot tell a difference between the two in terms of product quality.

The pluses for Garnier: much cheaper and easier to find (including feelunique.com).

Cleansers - BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Micellar Cleansing Water and Makeup Remover Solution

This is a super easy product to use. No grease, no residue on the skin. Removes makeup of any type, including stubborn mascara and does not irritate my skin at all.
In terms of quality of product, it's a 10 out of 10 from me. So thrilled this type of product exists.

BUT

The packaging is annoying, as you cannot unscrew the cap.
The price is relatively high for …

Cleansers - L'Oreal Paris - SKIN PERFECTION 3-in - Purifying Micellar Solution

I bought this product hoping it would replace the expensive and difficult-to-get-a-hold-of Bioderma. I hated this.

First of all it smells chemically, and it iritated my eyes horribly. My face felt dry and dehidrated, although i have normal to combination skin.

I tried the Garnier one instead and it is virtually identical to Bioderma.

Self Tanners - St.Tropez - Tinted Self Tanning Mousse/Whipped Bronze

I was afraid of bronzing products for years after a bad experience as a teenager (i basically turned orange), so I was not really tempted by the idea of self tanning.
Until I heard people raving on and on about St. Tropez and decided to give it a shot.

I am very pleased with the result.
I applied it in the evening using the St. Tropez mitt, after bathing and exfoliating. It …

My nails are very soft and brittle, they exfoliate at the tips and no nail polish survives longer than 24 hours on me. I've had the Sensationail on for a week already (Scarlet Red) and no chip in sight! Shiny as the first day i applied it. Very easy to use, applies evenly and the overall procedure takes less than 15 minutes.

I'd like to leave it on for as long as possible to …

Concealers - Lancôme - Effacernes [DISCONTINUED]

I bought this based on the good reviews on MUA and I can only agree with the others.

Very good coverage, but still looks natural, very creamy, blends like a dream. I sometimes wear it on its own, on good skin days.
You get lots of product, and the packaging makes it convenient to control the quantity you squeeze out.

Very long wearing, medium to buildable coverage but looks natural on the skin. It comes in a luxurious glass bottle packaging.
Overall an excellent foundation, I liked it and do not regret buying it, but I have moved on to Estee Lauder Double Wear which I find has a more beautiful and longer lasting finish.

Mascara - CLINIQUE - High Lengths Mascara

Jul/11/2014

One of the best mascaras I have used. If you move past the unconventional wand, which is strange to use the first few times, it's genius. It's literally like a comb that lifts and defines.
It also gave me unexpected volume. I actually found it hard to go back to a normal round brush after finishing the tube -- this felt so much more precise, especially for the inner and outer …
