Polishes - CHANEL - Le Vernis Nail Colour in Paradoxal #509

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/24/2011

I tried this on at the Chanel counter and the only thing I can say is "meh." It's a very flat grayish purple on me that has no dimension at all. It's not a creme, because if you look very closely you can see SOME shimmer, but unfortunately in this case that doesn't save the day. I don't dislike it just because grayish purple is not my color (it might suit cool-toned …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Midnight Ride

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/24/2011

This is a dark, vampy purple that you can't tell is purple indoor. However, it is nowhere as dark as for example Lincoln Park After Dark, which I can't stand on my fingers. I swapped for it after seeing some nice swatch pictures. I wore it on my toenails once, but was a bit disappointed because it somehow pulls a bit too cool on my NC30 warm Asian skin. However, I was playing around at …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Eucerin - AquaPORIN ACTIVE Eye

I'm onto my second bottle (not even really done with my first one yet though. I just left it at my boyfriend's place), and I like this! I have no fine line, so I use eye cream majorly as prevention. This cream is reasonably priced, and it keeps the skin around my eyes hydrated. It doesn't do an awful lot of fancy stuff, but for me it suffices at the moment. It claims to reduce the …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Tickle My France-y

I adore this nail polish because it gives a very clean, feminine, and classic look. At the same time, it has excellent coverage compared with most nude nail polish. The consistency is also smooth and excellent. It pulls a bit old pink and a bit mauve on my NC30 skin with warm undertone. It is very "safe" yet unique. I am not the biggest fan of the nude look, but when I get tired of …Read more

Top/Base Coats - OPI - Top Coat

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/16/2011

Compared with the base coat, the OPI top coat is not as fantastic. It's good because it doesn't drag my nail polish, and it does protect it from chipping or losing shine. I can easily wear my nail polish for a week with this on top, which is definitely unimaginable otherwise. The only problem that has been mentioned by a lot of users is the fact that it does become rather thick …Read more

Top/Base Coats - OPI - Natural Nail Base Coat

5.0

Jun/16/2011

I like this base coat! It applies well, dries fast (by the time I'm done with it I can start applying my nail polish straight away), and does protect my nails from yellowing/staining. I'm halfway through the bottle, and I've only had to put a couple of drops of nail polish thinner for it to keep working. Will repurchase.

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Asphyxia

3.0

May/30/2011

I got this in a swap and had to say I am kind of disappointed. Maybe it's my skin tone (NC 30), but the pigmentation isn't the best for UD. It's a bit too sheer against my skin. Also it's a pretty cold-toned color, so it doesn't look the best on me (I can usually pull cold-toned purple eyeshadows off, but not this one). Won't repurchase.

Moisturizers - Caudalie - Vinosource Quenching Sorbet Creme

May/30/2011

I grabbed this at the pharmacy when it came out (or when it was being promoted) because I happened to need a new moisturizer. I have to say it does an amazing job for such a light texture! I have combination skin, but I went through a pretty harsh winter with no dry patches on my cheeks. The smell is barely there and rather pleasant, and I don't need an awful lot (just one pump every time) …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Caudalie - Creme Gourmande Hand and Nail Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/30/2011

I can't believe I have ignored to write a review about this! I'm at the end of my tube, and will be repurchasing. I've tried all the major pharmaceutical brands of hand cream available in Europe (from Neux which I totally regretted purchasing and Eucerin which is surprisingly mediocre, considering how much I love their body lotion), and this is highly possibly the best. The texture …Read more

Brows - benefit Cosmetics - Brow-Zing in Dark

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/30/2011

This is great! I started out using Brows-a-go-go, but used the wax up way faster than any other product, so I switched to Brow Zings. It's very practical and no-nonsense. The wax puts my pathetic amount of eyebrows in shape (otherwise I'd always want to tweak out the hairs that grow in a strange direction), and the powder gives an illusion of much fuller eyebrows. If I'm running …Read more
