Hello! I’ve been putting a lot of foundations to the test lately. I’m all about a nice looking complexion without it beeing to cake-y or unnatural looking. With my fair skin tone I feel like a lot of my skin issues shows up a lot. With redness it looks very red because the redness is on a”white” background if you will. And the under eye darkness is looking very dark because of the low pigmentation of my skin. That’s why i feel like I’m always looking for a product that looks natural on the skin but also will correct some of the issues on it. I don’t need a full coverage because the condition of my skin is okay but it’s more to get evened out and looking fresh faced. Continue reading “Review: Cover FX Custom Cover Drops”
I was lucky to get the new Max Factor Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara as a gift from a good friend. For a long time I was in a real mascara drought and i purchased two L’Oréal mascaras with modest succes. I’m not really satisfied with any of my purchases so when I got this Max Factor Mascara I couldn’t wait to use it. Continue reading “Love: Max Factor Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara”
As many of you already know I have a love relationship with Makeup Geek eyeshadows. It was initially introduced to me by Makeup Artist and Youtube phenomenon Jaclyn Hill. She used the eyeshadows religiously and often compared them to her M.A.C eyeshadows. She worked at M.A.C for many years and also love their shadows but said that she liked Makeup Geek eyeshadows even more for their pigmentation and blendability. I wanted to get the shadows for so long and I found the website http://www.makeupgeek.com and also found Marlena who is the owner of the company. She has a Youtube channel as well where she shares some educational stuff about makeup; ingredients, techniques etc. I love watching both Jaclyn Hill and Marlenas channels!

In my recent splurge from Beautybay.com I bought the Face Atelier Ultra Foundation in Zero Minus. As I mentioned before I am very pale to the point that I have difficulty finding a colour that suits me, unless the brand has chosen to have a very wide range of foundations. One of my favorite YouTube makeup artists Lisa Eldridge talked about this product, Face Atelier Ultra Foundation in Zero minus, which is used for toning down the colour of the foundation. This is especially beneficial for skin tones like mine (almost white in the winter time). Continue reading “Review: Face Atelier Ultra Foundation Zero Minus”
I recently bought the Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser. I’ve wanted to try this face wash type product in a while because I’ve heard good things about it.
The company itself is from France and is using wine grapes in their skincare. That is just so ‘authentic French culture’ and I love it.
When I was a child we vacationed in the south of France. We drank in the scents of the French countryside, visited vineyards where the proprietiers opened a bottle of wine which my parents would taste and maybe buy a few bottles. Continue reading “Review: Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser”
Some time ago I bought a primer from the Bourjois Happy Light collection called Bourjois Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer. If you are new to my blog you don’t know it yet, but I am beyond obsessed with Bourjois skin products; foundations CC-creams etc.
I used this primer a few times back when I bought it but I wasn’t too impressed, why I don’t know. Maybe I have been using it wrong but when I tried it again a month ago I am once again impressed with Bourjois. My skin was glowing all day!

Here is a review about my new favorite foundation: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum.
It is marvellous! As I have dry skin winter time is such a challenge for me. Many foundations have a tendency to look dry and boring on my skin. But the formulation of this foundation is wonderful, it leaves the skin glowing and really true to it’s name: Healthy. I didn’t think it was possible and I am feeling like a new person!
I can only say, if you have dry skin go and buy this foundation! It’s excellent for warm toned skin as it has a yellow/warm tone to it. I am more on the cool side but it works for me as well. Side note, Bourjois is from the same company as Chanel, maybe that’s why the qualitity is so on point.
I bought mine on http://www.Hqhair.com but it can also be purchased on asos.com.
