I haven found any reviews about this product, and I really believe it deserves one, so here we go:
Apocalips were a big hype at European beauty blogs in January. Everyone was talking about it and reviewed them. Those reviews were very different, some loved them to death, others didn't liked them at all. I think that had something to do with the expectations.
I've just found …

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - Sa Majesté la Rose

A very lovely fresh rose scent. I love rose but i don't think this smells different enough to warrant the high price. It's nice, smells very natural and fresh but it's nothing special and I think there are similar scents out there for a fraction of this price. Also, on me this doesn't last very long.

No, no, no, no.. this is not good on me.
I love SL but this one's a big miss.
All I can smell is buttered caramelized popcorn, a note I really dislike and therefor I can't appreciate any of the other notes in it.
This one reminds me a lot of BPAL's Shill, a popcorn scent and I actually canlt smells nothing more than that. It smells cheap, a bit off.
The so- …

This is actually one of the softest carnation scents I've tried. I love florals, and I love the spiciness of carnations, and this version is really really nice.
Carnation can make a fragrance smell a bit old-fashioned, but here the carnation is very subtle and there's nothing dusty about it. On me it's not sharp, I actually find this very soft and floral and the carnations …

This perfume is the follow-up fragrance to Balenciaga Paris and features vetiver, patchouli, violet, violet leaf, green notes, sandalwood and cedar.
I've smelled the original and I prefer this one far over the other. Overall I like green perfumes, and I like mossy and woody scents. This istarts off more green than the original but dries to a more sweet, comfortable and woody …

Highlighters - essence - Sun Club all over shimmer for eyes, face & body

Another great drugstore find!
In the summer I love to use highlighters, especially more bronzy ones.
So when I saw this one from Essence for less that €4 I'd immediately took it home with me to try it. And I was really impressed.
These shimmers come it two colours: Blondes (lighter skin) and Brunettes (daker skin) and they are shimmer strips, with 6 different stripes of …

Eye Shadow - essence - Sun club (glamour to go eyeshadow)

May/09/2012

I love my high end stuff, like Dior and Guerlain e/s palettes.
But once in a while I really get intrigued by drugstore brands, especially when they get really good reviews.
I've tried a lot of things from Essence, and some are hits, other misses. This e/s palette is my latest find and it's defenitely a hit!
I've bought this one for summer to take this with me on …

May/05/2012

In Europe, there are four shades to choose from:
two suitable for cool toned skin (more pink): 001 Aurora (all year round) and 002 Sunlight (summer)
And two for warm toned (more peach): 003 Zenith (all year round) and 004 Sunset (summer)

It's technically not a bronzer in the pure meaning of the word but an all- over face powder that "warms the natural skin tone and …

Pressed Powders - Dior - Diorskin Poudre Shimmer - #003 Copper Diamond

May/05/2012

So this isn't available anymore but the reason I still wanted to review it anyway is that I got this in a swap and I really want to give this product the praise it deserves.
Mainly because of my latest highlighter lemmings and all these Dior Diamond shimmer powders turning up as everyones favourites, I had to try at least one of them.
So because I have a serious problem with …

Tinted Moisturizer - Estée Lauder - Day Wear Sheer Tint Release SPF 15

So I got a generous sample of this product, and because I'm very fair in winter and I'd like to get a bit of a (sunless) tan for spring I'd thought I should try this.
Well, I kinda liked the product itself: nice scent, I love the lightweight moisturizing effect and scent, overall another great daytime moisturizer from Estee Lauder.
But... the colour of this sheer tint …
