Lotions/ Creams - Aveeno - Daily Moisturising Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

This is a terrific body lotion. After not applying body lotion for a while (due to being busy, the heat, the humidity and just plain laziness) and being out in the sun and the swimming pool all last month, my skin felt like a crocodile's - dry, rough and uncomfortable. I applied this yesterday and, over 24 hours later, my skin looks and feels rejuvenated: soft and silky. I love this and will …Read more

Mascara - Urban Decay - Perversion Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

This is a pretty ordinary mascars (with an unjustifiably high price tag) but the real deal-breaker for me is that it smudges under my eyes after only a few hours. It does give my lashes some volume (some - not a lot), but there are better mascaras out there. Waste of money.

Candles - NEST Fragrances - Cashmere Suede

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

Cashmere Suede is my new favourite scented candle. It has notes of woods, leather, tobacco and amber, making it a cozy, warm and sophisticated scent. On Sephora, another reviewer described the scent as "masculine" and I suppose that's because it doesn't have any floral or fruity notes (at least not to my nose) but I prefer to think of it as unisex or androgynous. The smell …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Another Ramen-tic Evening

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

This is such a beautiful color - a soft baby-pink crème, very feminine and girly-girl. You do have to apply it carefully because like many (most?) light, opaque shades, it does have a tendency to go on patchy. What works best is if I ''float'' the brush over the nail, depositing the polish without actually having the brush touch the nail (or at least not pressing down on it) …Read more

Les Indispensables is a new neutral eye shadow palette which is part of Chanel's Les Beiges 2019 summer collection. It contains nine eye shadows, both cool and warm, divided into three groups of three eye shadows each in matte and shimmer formulas (the shimmers are pretty subtle - no disco glitter here!) While the shadows in each group are designed to work together, the makeup artist at the …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - All Your Dreams in Vending Machines

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

All Your Dreams in Vending Machines is a bright, blue-based fuchsia shimmer - it's beautiful and certainly not subtle. It's very shiny, even without a top coat. It has the usual excellent OPI formula - goes on easily without streaking or patchiness, and lasts several days before it starts chipping at the tips.

Polishes - OPI - Don't Toot My Flute

5.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

Don't Toot My Flute is a gorgeous shade of lilac. I bought this last fall, but because it looks more like a spring colour to me (think candy Easter eggs) I put it aside and only tried it in April. It would work year-round, though, because it's a dusty, not bright, shade of lilac - it dim lighting, it looks very low-key. The formula is great and so is the wear.

Candles - NEST Fragrances - Rose Noir & Oud

3.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

I love NEST candles but I am really on the fence about this one. I bought it without trying it first based on the rave reviews it's gotten on Amazon, but like all fragrances, it really does come down to a matter of personal taste. The ingredients, according to the package, are Rose de mai and Smoky Oud (of course) and also incense, black leather and patchouli for a "sultry floral …Read more

Loose Powders - Lancôme - Long Time No Shine Loose Setting Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

This is one powder which actually does what is says it will - keep your face shine-free for hours. I have combination skin with an oily T-zone. I've used other loose powders to set my foundation in the morning, but then I had to not only blot up the oil by noon (my favourite blotting papers, btw, are made by Boscia, then brush on some oil-control pressed powder - and then, a few hours later …Read more

Nails - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Rice Rice Baby

5.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

Rice Rice Baby is part of OPI's spring and summer 2019 collection, Tokyo. It's an absolutely beautiful shade of light pink: a dusty pink with cool undertones which looks very feminine and elegant. It's very spring like and especially good for early spring, before the weather gets really warm and you feel like puling out your brighter colors. Application was not a problem; although …Read more
