Hair Treatments - Olaplex - Olaplex step 3 (Home treatment)

5.0

4 months ago

This product saved my hair from total ruin. I had a balayage done, which I tried to replicate at home because I was trying to be cheap. Well, you get what you pay for. I almost fried my hair to frizzles and although they didn’t snap, they became very dry and brittle. I researched and started applying Olaplex 3 twice a week.

It made a huge difference from the first use, and after a few …

Hair Treatments - Olaplex - Olaplex No. 3

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/06/2018

Where have this been all my life when I’ve been frying, frizzling, scorching my hair? This tiny bottle saved my hair from going all the way to a pixie cut. After getting balayage and enjoying the colour, I decided that I could play hairdresser and do my own balayage. Well, why not, we have YouTube, don’t we? I learned it’s not a good idea.

Anyway, I started using Olaplex no. 3 on my …

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Face and Body Foundation

Mar/12/2018

This is one of the best foundations, certainly the best by MAC and my absolute go-to foundation in summer. I’m normally NC25-NC30 so I go between C3 and C4. It gives light coverage, perfect match with skin, quite sheer texture but still evens out the skin perfectly. I like the plastic bottle packaging, easy to adjust the amount you need and easy to carry around. You need to shake it well each …Read more

Contour - wet n wild - Coloricon Contouring Palette

5.0

Mar/10/2018

I prefer this over my beloved Marc Jacobs contouring palette for regular use and that says it all, I think. I bought it in Dulce de Leche, simply out of curiosity and not expecting much. I chose Dulce because I wasn’t sure about the warm tones in the darker option. I loved the buttery texture and the tone of the contour shade. I also use it as a transition colour for dark smokey eye, as it’s …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Total Temptation Mascara

4.0

Mar/09/2018

Over the last few years, I see that drugstore offers fantastic alternatives to high end brands and I’ve decided to not buy high end mascara anymore. This is an excellent drugstore one and among my absolute favourites from Maybelline. It comes in a pretty millenium pink tube and smells lovely. I’m not fond of plastic/rubber brushes and this has a great brush. It’s not a wet formula that gives you …Read more

Mascara - RIMMEL - Extra Super Lash Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/09/2018

This is probably the best mascara from Rimmel, and one of my favourite mascaras from the drugstore. I’m a mascara freak and have at least 5 or 6 different ones in rotation at a given time - right now, Diorshow Iconic, Chanel Le Volume, L’Oreal Paradise Extatic, Maybelline Total Temptation and Max Factor False Lash.
I found that this one performs just as well, if not better. I love the small …

Treatments (Eye) - Sisley-Paris - Sisleya Eye and Lip Contour Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/02/2013

I used a whole jar and waited until I finished to review the product. What a load of crap for that kind of price. It moisturized well, however it also made my puffiness worse on both the upper and the lower eyelids. I also noticed it did nothing to help with the fine lines and creasing. I know full well that I should not bring a rich eye cream very close to the eye socket and that's exactly …Read more

Treatments (Face) - trilogy - Rosehip Oil Antioxidant +

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/16/2013

I am a huge believer in facial oils. Not the aromatherapy sort, but cold-pressed non-volatile ones like rosehip, almond, hazelnut, kukui, etc. I've been using Trilogy's rosehip oil on and off for a few years and each time the difference in my skin is incredible. I started using the +antioxidant version 3 months ago and it is a fantastic product. I mix it with all my serums, creams and …Read more

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Radiant Creamy Concealer

Mar/15/2013

I think I found my HG under-eye concealer. I am 37 and recently developed quite bad under-eye circles and puffiness that make me look really tired and sad. I started looking for a higher coverage as my Clinique Airbrush concealer was not cutting it anymore. I tried high coverage stuff from Lancome, Estee Lauder, MAC, Vichy Dermablend, Soap and Glory, Bobbi Brown. etc. All of them vanished within …Read more

Blush - CHANEL - Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 76 Frivole

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/13/2013

This is a beautiful apricot blush that looks really great on my NC30 skin. It came out with the Chanel Spring 2013 collection and I am writing this review after a month of continuous use. Mine is the original baked formulation that has an inherent glow and goes on sheer as the pigmentation is not strong but it is buildable. It stays on all day without budging or fading and keeps the makeup …Read more
