This review is for the Rimmel Lasting Finish NUDE foundation.
I have mixed feelings about this foundation. On the positive side, I like that it has a medium coverage and it does hold up well for up to 10 hours (not 25 hours like it states, but I don't wear it for that long! lol).
What I didn't like about it is the finish after it's set and worn for a few hours. It looks a …

Eye Makeup Remover - The Body Shop - Chamomile Eye Makeup Remover

I'm giving this a bad review simply because I don't think it delivers what it's supposed to do: remove eye makeup. It can remove eye shadow, but I always struggle to completely remove eyeliner and mascara (non waterproof).
Also, if I pour a bit too much on the cotton pad it does sting my eyes a little bit.

I don't usually use drugstore foundations because, unfortunately, where I live we only get the medium shades. However, a L'oreal store opened in the city and to my surprise, they carry the lightest shades. Even better, the whole true match range had a discount, so I bought the foundation and the matching powder.

My skin is very fair, kind of neutral but more on the yellow …

I'm really into TBS shea range, especially the body butter and the scrub. They both work really well to moisturize the skin and smell amazing.
There was a promotion on the shea lotion and it was summer, so I thought I'd give it a go. I like it, it does indeed feel lighter than the butter but the smell isn't as nice. The base of this lotion is sunflower oil, which, for me, was …

The product itself has an average consistency, not too runny nor too thick. If I recall correctly, it's free from sulfates, parabens and silicons. It contains a few essentials oils: cedarwood, lemon, geranium, patchuli, bitter orange and sandalwood. Therefore, the scent was more on the herbal side (which I didn't love, but it was ok).

I was very excited to try one of the Dr …

Nov/06/2014

This is one of those cult products that everyones talks about, but I don' really get the hype. It has a very light texture and it's easy to blend, but it didn't provide any sort of high lighting effect on my undereye area (let alone any coverage). It might be the shade, number 2, but I chose that one because the other shades were either too pink or too dark, this one seemed like a …Read more

Why are you guys copying the same information over and over again?

I find beautypedia and her cosmetic ingredient dictionary very helpful when making decisions about what products I buy. However, everyone has and will have an opinion based on their own experiences and beliefs. This is when, if you're interested in the issue, need to do your research and look up other sources of …

Feb/04/2014

With all honesty, the more I know about Caudalie, the more I dislike it. I like their general philosophy but their products turn out to be quite average in performance and heavily fragranced (which is actually bad for the skin, by the way).

Now this product... I love how they claim it's SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) free but the second ingredient is Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, so …

Feb/04/2014

This cream comes in a tube containing 40 mL. The texture of it it's kind of like a fluffy ricotta cheese that blends easily into the skin. I have normal to combination skin, prone to breakouts, but I haven't had any issues in that area.

On the other hand, if you take a look at Caudalie (in general), you'll see in the ingredient list that they are a big fan of fragrance …

Lip Treatments - Maybelline New York - Baby Lips lip balm in Pink Punch

Nov/28/2013

I love baby lips in "Cherry Me" and "Pink Punch" is very different to it!

Cherry Me has a very light texture and the color is buildable. I just love how it makes your lips look "wet" as if you had been licking a lollipop (ok, that just sounded a bit weird but I mean in a good way!).

Pink Punch on the other hand, has more of a moisturizing …
