Polishes - Isadora - Wonder nail - 719 Forest

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/19/2011

Isadora usually does lots of very conventional shades that don't really catch my attention, but this new one is great. It's a deep dark olive green with golden and green micro-glitter / specks. The closest shades are Nars Mash, L'Oréal Night Owl, and China Glaze Wagon Trail.

The formula is surprisingly good, the polish glides easily and is perfectly opaque and even in …

Primer/ Corrector - Lancôme - La Base Pro

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/14/2011

My skin is very dry on my forehead and around my nose, so all foundations (even tinted moisturizers) tend to flake on these areas. The SA at the Lancôme counter tried La Base on me with the Lancôme tinted moisturizer with a satisfying result. I checked in the mirror a couple of hours later and there were still no dry patches to be seen. I received a sample to try at home so I used it a couple of …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Patina (Pro Palette Refill Pan)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/14/2011

If I had to keep only two eyeshadows I think it would be Satin Taupe and Patina. Patina is so gorgeous and versatile, it feels like I could blend it with any other shade and get a nice looking result. This is a very work appropriate light golden taupe, but not bland at all. It compliments my eye colour incredibly well, but I’m pretty sure it works as good with any eye colour. There’s not fallout …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Ingrid

I usually don’t wear brown because I think it doesn’t compliment my skin tone very well, but when I saw the swatch for this polish I thought that I should enlarge my polish collection with this particular brown. And it was a wise decision. This shade is too gorgeous. It is a kind of dusty medium brown / dark taupe packed with very fine golden shimmer. The weather is horrible for the moment so I …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Club

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/14/2011

This eyeshadow looks fabulous in the pan, unfortunately a bit better than it does on the eyelid. In the pan it’s a vibrant emerald green and brown duochrome. As usual with MAC, the texture is very easy to work with, except some minor fallout. The colour is not true to pan, on the lid it looks plum brown with only a hint of green shimmer. The main issue I have with Club is the wear.. With a base …Read more

Masks - LUSH - Mask of Magnaminty Face and Body Mask

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/14/2011

I bought this mask to deep cleanse my sensitive, yet clogged skin. I used it for a couple of months, and it did... absolutely nothing. The first times I used it I liked it because it smells mint, so it feels fresh and clean, but I quickly realized that my skin didn’t look any better. If I had oilier skin I would maybe have noticed an improvement, but it doesn't help to get rid of blackheads …Read more

Lipstick - By Terry - Rouge Terrybly in 100 Terrybly Nude

5.0

Nov/14/2011

This lipstick is perfect for fair skins with cool undertones. Lots of nude colours will make me look weird and sick, especially if they are yellow based, but this lipstick is not a foundation-like nude. It’s a very creamy, pink based nude that is slightly lighter than my lips carnation. It looks very classy with a smoky eyes. The formula is surprisingly moisturizing, smooth and buttery (so …Read more

Polishes - Nubar - Stylish Peacock

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/14/2011

This polish belongs to the Polished Chic Fall 2011 collection from Nubar, and this is my favourite shade this season. This is a dusty teal creme that looks very elegant yet cutting-edge with a black outfit. It is not too bright, therefore appropriate at work, but still colourful enough not to look dull. The shade has a good balance between blue and green, but it leans slightly towards …Read more

Blush - Cargo Cosmetics - BeachBlush - Tenerife

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/14/2011

I’m not a bronzer person because it usually looks so fake on my fair skin. But this summer I got more tanned than usual (NW25+) so I wanted to try a peach blusher to enlarge my collection which consisted of pinks only. I ended up buying this Cargo blusher because I was also interested in having a face powder that could work on my almost medium skin tone. It’s a very good multi-purpose product …Read more

Scrubs - CLINIQUE - Gentle exfoliator

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/07/2011

My skin is dry and sensitive, meaning that I get very easily red, with flaky patches around my nose and on the cheeks, but I still need a product that prevents my pores from being clogged on the t-zone. This exfoliator sure is gentle but I’m not really convinced by it efficiency. The product is a rather runny beige cream with an oily texture. The exfoliating beads are round, soft and very fine …Read more
