Loose Powders - CHANEL - Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/08/2013

I can't believe how great this is. I've tried so many loose powders out there (Becca, T. LeClerc, MUFE, MAC, Dior, Fyrinnae, Everyday Minerals, BE Mineral Veil, silica and/or rice powders, etc.) and while they are all good, Chanel is the best. Gorgeous silky finish, matte but not lustre-free. The packaging is absolutely huge so it's good value for your money …Read more

Skincare - Face - MAC Cosmetics - Prep and Prime Fix+

Jan/27/2013

Hydrating (not to make it last longer, despite the name) spray that adds glow to the makeup. Great to avoid the over-powdered look.


This spray leaves an amazingly natural result if I have put on too much powder and/or foundation. It's also great to moisten a damp sponge with and stipple over makeup for a natural just-like-skin result.


Unfortunately, this …

Brows - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Aqua Brow Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/25/2013

Why didn't I hear of this before? It's genius! Aqua Brow is a small tube that contains a waterproof gel formula. It's lightweight but has quite a lot of pigment to it, doesn't feel watery.


I've previously used:

• Eyeshadow (MAC Concrete or BB Espresso, wet and/or dry with an angled 208 or 266 brush - can look a little too obvious at times since …

Polishes - OPI - Otherwise Engaged

Such a pretty neutral! On my NC15 skin it looks slightly lighter, very fresh and good for all year round. I love to wear this when I'm tired of wearing colors and need an alternative. Soft cool-toned transparent pink (almost iridescent). I use two layers, but it looks good with one too - good formula and non-streaky. Would be a perfect 'classic' bridal shade too!

Mascara - MISSHA - Mascara Base

Best lash primer out there! This is a white mascara base with fibers, you can build it a lot and it gives both volume and length. I've tried a lot of this type but this is the best, and the price tag is more than fair.


Don't let it dry; put the mascara on directly after, otherwise the mascara application might be hard. Highly recommended!

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen Lipstick - Creme Cup

5.0

Jan/11/2013

Such a cute lipstick! The hue is a soft, wearable pink with lots of moisture and no shimmer as far as I can tell. I use it paired with a smokey eye or for just adding on to a neutral makeup. Goes with anything really.


I love it on anyone up to NC35-ish, darker than that it goes on a little too light for my taste.


I usually combine Creme Cup with Dervish lip liner …

Got really worried after having this on for 10 minutes! It felt like my fingers had gotten squeezed in a door, throbbing with pain. I thought I had gone crazy but then I read the reviews here and realized I'm not the only one who felt it. Quite strong stuff! And if you look at the ingredients, it's not the healthiest product out there.


I can't give it more than one …

Crushed bugs is fine for me, I don't like bugs much anyway. Apart from the fantastic deep red color they can provide, that is!


This is a beautiful scarlet red lipstain that looks good on lips but wears off a little too easy for my to give it a higher grade. It doesn't strike me as a wow product in any way; I barely reach for it but usually use my MAC stain (from the …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Viva Glam Gaga [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/30/2010

The Viva Glam Gaga lipstick launches in March 2010 (will be a year on the counters) and the whole proceeds of $14 goes to the MAC AIDS Fund.


Gaga is a beautiful light cool pink shade with a glossy finish. Like Pink Nouveau and Saint Germain had a cute baby; a very transparent, soft and wearable one.


The Lustre formula is very soft on lips; I always think of it …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Violetta Amplified (Pro)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/24/2009

This is a wow lipstick and one of my all time favourites. Violetta is an Amplified formula and therefore has good color pay-off with slight shine and a creamy texture. I love how it has tiny pearlized particles that makes the color non-flat and really wearable.


If you want Violetta more true to the color, use MAC Lip Erase (pro product) underneath. Personally, I love to use it …
