Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2014

Very black, very resistant (you may need their own makeup remover from the same line for this one), the wand is awesome especially the end. Great for getting big black dramatic eyelashes. Does not irritate my eyes (some mascaras do that). It's not more expensive than other HE mascaras but it is better than most imho (Dior, EL, Givenchy - from which I've tried).

Eyeliner - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Push-Up Eyeliner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2014

I was sceptic about this product seeing the tester in the shop was already clugged at the top, and it was hard to remove. But Benefit had a silly offer for buying a product from them, and eyeliner was the only thing I needed and I loved the matte finish (all gel eyeliners get thick after a while to me, so a product with less quantity was more likely to be used before it dries off). I also bought …Read more

Polishes - L'Oreal Paris - Les Blancs

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/28/2014

This is a new range from L'Oreal featuring opaque white, but tinted, nail polishes. There are several shades the tint being yellow, pink, beige, lila, green, blue. I used Gourmandise which is the pink tint (cool pink). The product is great, it take 2 coats to cover fully, it dries as fast as professional brands of nail polish (30 mins with a speed dry spray or top coat).
The color …

BB Cream - RIMMEL - BB Cream 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup SPF 25

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/28/2014

This is a great BB cream if you are on the oilier-combo side, not dry and you don't have dry patches. I like the high SPF, the light shade is beige not yellowish, so it suits more cool-neutral skin colors. If you are very pale, this will be too dark.
As a summer foundation this looks great. Since I find that high end BB creams also are nothing but tinted moisturizers in my experience I …

Shampoo - Joico - K-PAK Shampoo for Dry or Damaged Hair

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/08/2014

This is review for the entire K-pak reconstructor line since I bought it in a whole set, 4 products - shampoo, conditioner and 2 types of masks to use alternatively.
It's true that after you use this shampoo your hair will be very dry and frail and it definitely needs a treatment, best from this line, to compensate somehow. After first uses my hair did feel smoother but it would get …

Shampoo - Bumble and bumble - Let It Shine

5.0

Mar/12/2014

I love this shampoo+conditioner. I can't review one without the other. Like for most products that promise shine I expected the almost clarifying effect so I assumed the conditioner is a must.
My hair is fine, curly and dry, I blow dry it regularly so it is now even drier at the ends. Being long my roots have become more oily so the usual hydrating products would not give me great …

Lips - GIVENCHY - Prismissime Euphoric Pink Lip & Cheek Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/10/2014

This is a Limited Edition of the Over Rose 2014 Spring collection. The palette consists of 9 shades for lips and cheeks (cream blush). It comes with 3 lip brushes (two flat one a bit fluffier to blend colors together or smooth out edges) which are ok but not the best lip brushes I have seen.
The colors are on the matte side (considering they can be used as blushes too this is a plus). First …

Fragrances - Lancôme - La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/16/2014

I love this perfume! It's sweet but not heavy and so pleasant. The reason why I gave one star off is because it was advertised as something amazing and new and to tell you the truth while I enjoy this it feels so familiar, probably this is why I like it because it's comforting. But it's definitely nothing new and for the price tag I must admit it will not give that expensive feel …Read more

BB Cream - Dr. Brandt Skincare - Flexitone BB Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/04/2013

I have light skin tone and this BB cream is definitely not able to adapt to all colors as they say on the label. To my nw15 skin it gives a bronzing effect in the end. If this were a tinted moisturizer only I would've given it 1 point because of the bad color match. But the truth is this does work on the skin as it should be, after 1 day of application alone it cleared some white heads I had …Read more

Moisturizers - alverde - Aqua Mattifying Whitening 3 in 1 Pearl Day Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/12/2013

This is a vegan 3 in 1 daily moisturizers that claims to hydrate, mattify and beautify normal to mixed skin. It definitely does the first two for my combination skin in summer and dare I say that even the 3rd claim is satisfied since its marine components calm any irritation I may have on my face. For the price (4 euro-ish) it is definitely the most impressive drugstore moisturizer for combo skin …Read more
