Apr/20/2014

First of all, I'd like to clear something up: this was my first foundation brush ever and I've learned a whole lot since I got this brush about 5 years ago. Nowadays, I don't use this type of foundation brush (flat) because I know there are better options out there.

PROS:
- Does its job
- Good quality as it doesn't shed at all if taken proper care …

Misc Beauty Tools - MAC Cosmetics - MAC - Whole store

Apr/16/2014

This is a store you'll love going to. They have basically anything a girl wants. However, their products are very pricey, especially their makeup brushes. For example, an average foundation brush will cost you around 40/50 euros.

PROS:
- Mostly very high quality products. Not all for sure as I've had some heartbreaks at MAC. However, stuff like their Pro Longwear …

Apr/15/2014

This brush is perfection! It can be used to apply foundation and get that air brushed look that everybody loves (I use it to apply both of my liquid foundations: Chanel's Perfection Lumiere and Clinique's Oil-Free) and/or apply powder all over the face (I use it to apply MAC's Pressed Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder). Some people also like to use it for applying bronzer or …Read more

Apr/13/2014

This is a must-have brush, mainly for two purposes: applying liquid foundation to the most tiny areas of your face and applying liquid under-eye concealer. It does an amazing job with both.

Firstly, if you're looking for a brush that will allow you to apply your liquid foundation perfectly and give your face a natural and stunning coverage, you should really check this out. It is …

Blush - Sleek MakeUP - Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/10/2014

I had such high expectations for this product as I had previously bought and loved Sleek's eye shadow palettes, which were incredibly pigmentated for only 10 euros. However, this product is crap. Although it is very cheap, it is also very bad. The highlighter and the blush are not well pigmentated at all. The highlighter is shimmery and looks like a bronzer gone wrong. As for the blush, I …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - 224 Tapered Blending Brush

Apr/10/2014

Although most people use this brush for blending eye shadow, my main use for it is applying liquid under-eye concealer. For that purpose, I think it's just perfect. Also, you don't have to use a lot of concealer (despite having to use a good one obviously or the brush won't do any good! - I use the Pro Longwear by MAC, which I also found to be amazing) to hide those awful dark …Read more

Shampoo - NIVEA - Brilliant Blonde Shampoo

Mar/31/2014

I really like this shampoo. I have dyed my naturally brown hair and it's very hard to maintain that natural, non orange blonde. I do think this shampoo helps with that.

It does what Nivea promises (which is making your blonde hair - natural or not - look radiant) and it feels clean as it should. As for the packaging, it's not stunning, but it looks nice (is greyish blue with …

Mar/20/2014

Because I have oily skin, I need to clean my face extremely well in the morning (for that, I have a cleanser by Avène), use a toner (mine's by Clinique) and apply a good oil-free foundation (I currently use one by Clinique and another by Chanel - for more details about the products I'm mentioning read my reviews or ask me about it). I can't skip any of these steps or my face starts …Read more

Liquid - CHANEL - Perfection Lumiere Long-Wear Fluid Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/17/2014

I had been using Clinique's oil-free foundation when I decided it was time I picked out a new foundation. I loved mine (is great at oil control and looks & feels very natural on the skin), but it had a sheer coverage. So I started asking my friends and looking for reviews about several foundations. I was recommended the Mat Lumiere foundation, absolutely hated it (you can read my review …Read more
