Maybe not that Special

Sleek Oh So Special Palette 

I mention this palette during my "Shadows for Spring" post but I tought that I should do a review on it. 
I have a huge Love-Hate relationship with this palette. There are colours that are gorgeous to work with, but others not? Not that much. 
Yes you guessed it - the matte shadows are also a huge problem here. It bugs me a bit...Yes, there is only one shadow with pigmentation (actually, doesn't have pigmentation at all) but the crumbling of the others is insane.  
What this palette has, is a nice selection of colours. We have the neutrals, the colourful pinks and the darker shades for smokey eyes - blue, purple and black.

 





On the first row he have (from left to right) Bow , Organza, Ribbon, Gift Basket, Glitz and Celebrate. Are you wondering where Bow is in the Swatch picture? Remember the Eyeshadow that didn't have pigmentation? Here it is. It's even worse than the Matte shades from Au Naturel. I  can't work with this shade...What can I highlight with this? Nothing. I seriously think that it's a waste of space. It was better not having it, than having it like this. Ribbon was a disappointment as well. The pigmentation isn't bad, but crumbles like there is no tomorrow. Again, what saves this palette ware the Shimmery shades. My favourite is Gift Basket - amazing to swipe across the lead and blend with a matte shade (one with pigmentation you know).
On the Second row we have (from left to right) Pamper, Gateau, The Mail, Boxed, Wrapped Up and Noir
Besides Noir's usual problem (Sleek, you could have changed the formula you know?) I'm really sad with The Mail. It had everything to be my favourite shade along side with Gift Basket but it's so dry and chunky...and not pigmented. Boxed and Wrapped Up aren't the best but they aren't that bad either, specially if only used as transitional shades. Pamper has the same problem that Ribbon has and Organza (along side with other Shimmery shades) has a small problem with sparkle fallout. 

It's not a bad palette, but doesn't like for the name. Like I said on my previous post, I'll keep buying their palettes, but only after swatching everything and doing a big research on their shadows. 

Take Care, have a nice day!*

With Love,
Diana.

And Yet...another Haul?

3/28/2014






Yes, Yes, I know. Another Haul? Don't get mad...Like I said on my previous Haul, I had a few things to get because the current ones where either gone or running out...Oh and don't worry, there will be another Haul coming because I'm still looking for a Concealer and I have to get two new skin care items (You'll understand why in a minute...OTL). 

Bioderma Sensibio Eye Gel 
My Current Eye gel is on the verge of ending. I have like...a week of use? So I really needed a new one (even knowing that I got sample from another eye cream, which I'll be saving for a special occasion) an I had seen really good reviews about him. Let's see how he works. 

Benefit They're Real Mascara
This is a Backup, I got it now mainly because of Sephora's 20% off offer. My 2 Drugstore mascaras are getting pretty dry and the Too Faced Mascara that I own is a complete mess...which would left me with a sample size of They're Real. I won't buying many mascaras (ok, I'm thinking about 2 Korean ones, but I'm still working on getting Kollectionk's 10$ coupon) in the next months so I think I made a nice purchase. 

Benefit Big Easy Foundation/BB Cream 
Remember the Recommendation post? I ended up getting this one because of the discount. My current foundation is ending (and sometimes the scent doesn't look the same, scary!) so, I had to get one ASAP. I've tried out twice and looks nice. It has a light coverage, but can be build and it's really light on the Skin. I still need to try it out a little more before writing any review. 

Avène Clenance Mask 
I've heard amazing reviews about this mask and I'me super curious to try it. Aparently it helps out skin by doing some chemical exfoliation with AHA/BHA complex. Yes, it wasn't the most affordable mask, but if it helps my skin during the SOS times, it will worth every peny. (and yes, I'm looking after a substitute to my current clay mask)

Lierac Démaquille Purete
This....Why me? I got this by impulse and I did a huge mistake. First I thought that this was an oil - it's a gel. Second, IT CONTAINS MINERAL OIL (bloody hell) . The price tag was on top of the bastard's ingredient name. I tried this and...I hate it. No, it's not good. My skin felt super horribly dried and twitching. I didn't wanted to do it so soon but, I'll have to get a Balm and a Oil Cleanser (probably from Innisfree) along with the concealers.  I'm also thinking about doing a "I regret buying" post because of this products (and Avène's foaming cleanser as well. What a bad luck...two bad cleansers in a row!) 


L'Oréal Ever Sleek Shampoo & Conditioner 
This is part of their "Sulphate-free" range but I'm not sure if it's really sulphate-free (Let's see if it Foams or not...). I recently finished a bottle of conditioner and I'm the verge for finishing another of Shampoo so I had to get these. I'm crossing fingers here...I thought about getting The Body Shop's range but went for this because of the raves. No, I don't need another two products for my regret post. 

So yeah...here it is. I'm so mad about the cleanser/make up remover thing.I'm just crossing my fingers that the TBS cleanser doesn't finish until I get the ones. My skill will cry in despair T__T 
Take care everyone, have a nice day!

With Love,
Diana.

A Sadly Natural Disapointment

3/26/2014




Sleek au Naturel Palette

I have a confession to make - this is the first palette I bought when I decided to be interested in make up. It was like..3 years ago? I just had started to read blogs and at the time, Sleek was entering in the Portuguese market. I saw a review on this palette - how amazing and affordable it was. I was a really young girl at the time and decided to jump and buy this palette. By the tittle, you can see that this didn't live for my high expectations. 
Ok to be fair, many of these shades are gorgeous and amazing, the problem is that pretty much half of the shadows have high pigmentation and crumbling problems. I know that I can't complain too much for a 10 euro palette, but I can't stop feeling bad about this. 






Before I start to talk about the shades, I want to credit Sleep&Water because I got inspired by her review on the Lorac Pro  swatches. I hope that she doesn't get mad but I really like her system. Please don't get mad! Also, I'm sorry for the "out of focus" thing, I'll be working on fixing it I promisse! 

On the first row (from left to right) we have Nougar, Nubuck, Cappuccino, Honeycomb, Toast and Taupe
The first row is a mess. The only shade with good pigmentation is Taupe - a gorgeous golden shade . Nougar, Nubuck and Cappuccino have really poor pigmentation. But I'll be fair, Bow from the Oh So Special Palette has bigger problems compared to these shadows. I mean, you can say " oh they are nice as transition colours" but really, 5 transition colours? Often people complain how the Naked Palette's don't have enough matte's but really...I rather have 2 or 3 nice mattes than have 5 or 6 that aren't nice. (But that's just me)
On the second (from left to right) we have Conker, Moss, Bark, Mineral Earth, Regal and Noir.
The second row is a nice one. The only "trouble" shade in therms of pigmentation is Noir. Bark and Regal are matte and yet, they are beautiful to work. Conker, Moss and Mineral Earth are buttery and gorgeous shadows, although, watch out for a particular and annoying fallout. 

Overall, I'll keep using this palette but I'll always feel sad about the fact that half of the shadows have problems. Will I keep buying sleek palettes? Probably yes, but only after swatching every single eyeshadow from the palette. I can't do the same mistake trice..

Also, this is my person opinion. You may or not agree with me...
Take care everyone, have a nice day!



With Love,
Diana.

Blush for Spring | 2014

3/23/2014





This year I decided to upgrade the game and recommend a few blushes for Spring as well. I have option for both high-end and drugstore. They aren't that many, but I think that they are all nice options. 


Benefit Sugarbomb BoxPowder Blush
Mine is from their Sugarlicious kit but as you all know, it's also available in a full-size version. I really like this blush. It's a really pretty light peach tone that brightens but my face.I used to be afraid of him but today, it's actually one of my favourites.  

Nars Seduction Blush
Ok, the colour looks really scary but this was released last year as part of their Spring collection. Yes you read it right, Spring collection. I think that it's a really nice blush for when we have really light make up on our eyes but have a nice bold lip. Personally for me it's a  blush that you use at any season, but since I'm making this post I had to talk about him. 

Nars Outlaw Blush 
A more pinkish and with a few shimmer (it's not much really!). This one can be used with different looks, compared to Seduction since it's a bit more...live? I don't know. It just a pretty colour that speaks Spring to me. 





Bourjois Cream Blush in Rose Tender
I'm starting to hit pan on this one. It's a cream blush with a "cream-to-powder" finish. Looks lovely with any look and doesn't melt with the sun and high temperature. A Repurchase will be made once this one is out.

MeMeMe Blush me! in Pink
Part of a The Secret Bag special edition, this precious just really screams Spring to me. It's pink, easy to wear and carry on your make up bag and affordable. And the Fluffy blush is always a nice plus.

Sleek Blush-by-3 in Sugar
What can I say about this? First, Demerara is a perfect dupe for Seduction. You can use it in the same exact way, paying only a fraction of the price. Muscovado isn't exclaty the best Spring colour I know, but Turbinado is a really interesting pick if you want to get a more toasted peach look.

Would you like to see a lipstick post? I hope that you guys liked this. I'm really sorry for the quality but, Spring decided to take a small vacation when I took this photos and the light was really bad. (She took the vacation, but my allergies didn't...)

Take care, have a nice day!
With Love,
Diana. 

Cream Shadow Edit #1

3/21/2014



Cream eyeshadows are a staple for me. I already have a few from different brands and I want to keep adding a few to my collection. But that doesn't mean that I can talk about the ones that I already own right?
Here I have my favourite ones, the nice ones and the not-so-nice ones. I also want to state that this is my personal opinion. I know that a few of you will be quite shocked about the opinion I'll give about two cream shadows that are present here. 

The Favourites





MAC Paint Pot in Painterly 
Probably one of my oldest cream shadows. It's still rocking pretty nicely. The consistency is still creamy, glides and blends beautifully and it's super pigmented - cover s my discolouration and veins. It doesn't melt that much, although it needs a bit of help during the warmer seasons. During the winter time it's what saves my eye looks. If I ever see the bottom of the jar I'll run to next MAC corner to get backup. Yes, it's a bit expensive but it's totally worth it. 

Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Birthday Suit 
I'll blame this one on Kate from Gh0stparties. It's just the most gorgeous all-over the lead colour. I have to admit that I haven't give much love to this baby - because I've been testing out palettes and everything - but it's so lovely. It doesn't crease and it's super creamy. I'm thinking about buying a few more of these later with time. Just like the MAC ones, they are totally worth the price. 

The Nice Ones





Bourjois Color Edition 24H in 02 Or désir 
I got these as a Try out. I had heard not so nice things about these but...I really wanted to get my own experience and opinion. So, they aren't the best. For instants they aren't that pigmented, you'll need to build the colour a bit if you want the exact same thing you want in the pot. It's nice a base colour for a nice smokey look but I wouldn't wear this without a primer because it will melt without any question. What makes this is the fact that it can be worked with a primer and it's easy to blend. Price wise, isn't the most expensive but it's not the most affordable either.

Catrice Made to Stay Longlasting Eyeshadow in 040 Lord of The Blings 
I've talked about this before. It's still amazing and my heart is broken because apparently Catrice discontinued them - Shame on You Catrice, Shame on You! . They are smoth, the colour pay off is beautiful and doesn't crease that much. My only and big complain is the packaging because it's a bit too tiny for my taste.

Catrice Made to Stay Longlasting Eyeshadow in 080 Copper&Gabbana
Probably my favourite in therms of colour. I really want to get a high-end version of this colour. It's just so pretty. In therms of texture and opinion, it's applied the same that I mentioned to it's sister. 


 The Not-that-Nice ones 
  



Maybelline Color Tattoo in 20 Turquoise Forever
You guys are probably like "what in the world is she thinking?" So...I got this one when they were released here. I feel in love with the colour because I wanted something to add a tinny bit of colour during the summer time. But it's impossible. The pigmentation of this one is horrible and it's a nightmare to work with! It just doesn't want to look right. Arg! How bad.  I think that we got really unlucky because apparently these are a different version from the ones that are sold in the States, UK and Philippines (the packaging at least is quite different) . So yes, they it's a not-that-nice cream shadow.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in 05 Eternal Gold
I got this one because I thought that maybe...maybe Turquoise was the only bad shadow...I was wrong. The pigmentation is okay, when you finally are able to work with it. It's really had and difficult to blend. It also creases like there is no Tomorrow.
I've been keeping these in my collection because I wanted to mention what I think about them. I'm not sure if they'll stay once I move my make up into my final Storage.

Anyway, I hope that you likes this post and if you have any recommendation, feel free to leave it.
Take care everyone! Have a nice day!

With Love,
Diana.

I need a few Recommendations

3/18/2014


So, Tuesday isn't my usually post day but, I had to write this extra-one (tomorow there will be one like usually). My current foundation is ending and I want something new. I wanted something ligh but with enough coverage and that would work nicely with my skin. 

I'm torn between these three options. Their price-range is pretty similar. 

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser is supposed to be already available here in a local store (I haven't checked it yet but, they said it would be available in the beginning of 2014 and we are already in March...). I've heard that the coverage can be built and works amazingly with oily-skin. 

Big Easy from Benefit is a recent release. I've heard that has a cream-to-powder finish and it has a nice light colour for my skin tone. I'm just unsure about this one because I haven't heard many reviews on it...

Jouer Matte Moisture Tint is another thing that I've been wanting for a while. It's only available at cultbeauty.co.uk and has a nice shade selection. (also, if I order this I'll probably order another item from that store as well). 

Anyway, what your thoughts and recommendations? I'm also thinking about getting a new concealer...maybe 3 Concept Eyes wand concealer and another one form my under eye area. 

Thank you for your time!
Take care. 


With Love,
Diana.

The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter | Review

3/16/2014





One of the requested items to be reviewed 

It is! Although the title will now go to the NUDE'tude from theBalm (which will only be reviewed next month because I still want to work it a bit more before writing any conclusions).
As I stated before, I'm not using foaming cleansers any more. At the time the only product I had with me was this precious. Long story short - it's amazing and I'm loving it. Yes I still want to play with other cleansers and oils, but I'll be repurchasing this for sure.
The texture of this is, like the name hints, a buttery one. it looks quite hard and strange at first. I wasn't sure of how I should take the product out. One thing I can tell you: if you are afraid of product leaking, you won't need to worry about that with this cleanser / make up remover (unless it's really, really hore where you live...
Once you start massaging this on your face, it will turn into an oil and will break every dirt and make up residues that you have on your face. I also use this for removing mascara - the first purpose of this product was actually that.

After massaging, you'll need to wet a cloth with warm/hot water and remove all the make up and dirt. If you have make up and sun screen, you'll have to double cleanse (which means, applying the butter on your face again and remove it with the cloth). You'll have will feel clean without feeling too dry or scary. Also, don't forget to change your cloth daily, because bacterias might decided to procreate in you cloth and guess what - it won't be good.
This hasn't broke me out or anything but, if you are allergic to Shea Butter - the main ingredient in this product - you might have to skip it. It doesn't contain any mineral oil.

I truly recommend this product. I got it at The Body Shop for 7 euros because of a promotion, but it's usually retailed at 14 euros ( in the US it's 15 $ and in the UK it's 12£ , so be sure to check the prices at your local The Body Shop. In Spain & France it's also 14 euros).

I hope that you guys liked this review.
Take care everyone! Have a nice day* 

With Love,
Diana.

The Secret Bag | March'14

3/14/2014





 The Secret Bag

Before anyone starts with the "oh this pictures are just like the ones from your previous post" - yes they are. I took them on the same day because I had the time and the light for it. I've been using the products even since that. Besides, this is isn't a review, it's just me talking about I got this month.
The Secret Bag is a subscription service with a really peculiar slogan - "The content is what matters" (this is a literal translation, okay?), meaning that, they don't really care about the pretty and nice boxes or about pretty make up bags that we will be super tired of getting after the third or fourth month. Their main concern is what comes every month specially because, they don't send the usual tinny samples. No, they always try to send at least 1 full-size and travel-sizes products. Although, they usually send more than just 1 full-size.
They also launch special bags once in a while. They have launched one with  just Revlon products and other with just MeMeMe products. I got the MeMeMe one and it was amazing.
This service costs 15 euros and the Shipping costs 3 euros. Other services can cost the same by just sending samples.






MeMeMe Eyeline

A black eyeliner! Don't mock me, but I really needed one. I thought I had bough one when I got the Too Faced Kit but...that eyeliner is blue. Once it's applied, you need to let it set a bit, once it's setted it won't come off easily. So it's perfect for a normal eyeliner and for smokey eyes.
So yes, I'm happy about this. It's something that I need and use.
It's retailed for 7,5 euros and it's a full-size.

Core Hand Cream Pomegrande & Cherry Blossom

This is so me. Pink and Cherry Blossom. Hand cream is something that I really need. Because of how much I write, draw, paint and computer writing my hads need a bit more of hydration. And guess what, I don't really buy hand cream. Actually, my current one was a gift from a friend.
The smell of this is amazing and I love the feeling. my tip is to use just a tinny bit, don't go crazy with it.
This item is part of a set of three that it's retailed for 12,90 euros and, because only one of the items was sent (everyone got a different one, some got hand cream, others got shower gel or foaming bath) this particular one values 4,30 euros.
Woman's Secret Feminine

A roll-on perfume. A must-have to those like me , who love perfume but need to be careful. My grandmother always complains about "how I shouldn't wear perfume" so she can't hear me using the perfume spray that she'll start screaming. With a roll-on, I can just apply it after leaving the house. And it's also nice for touch-ups and other events.
Retails for 6 euros.
Argent Makeup 102

This is a specially edition, it's little than the original. I already own the original one and I think that this one is amazing. You can still use it for bronzer and blush, but personally, I'll wear it to set my concealer and to apply my highlighter. They should add this one to their permanent collection.
Retails for 12,50 euros.

Overall, I really enjoyed this month's bag. I paid 18 euros (shipping included) and I got a 30,3 bag full of products. How nice is that?
You can find more information's at The Secret Bag official facebook page.


EDIT: [saturday, March 15] So, I just got contacted by the team from The Secret Bag and, not only they really liked my post, they also informed me that they are willing to sell and ship a few remaining and special bags overseas. Because they still have to work on getting English as an option at their website, please contact them at 
geral@thesecretbag.pt , they do accept paypal and shipping will probably be calculated according to where you live.


Anyway, take care guys! Have a nice day!

With Love
Diana,

A Little myself Haul

3/12/2014






Yup, I got a few things for myself (and for a dear girl, but I can't show it, since she reads the blog ). I'll be on a "no buy"  for myself during the rest of March and middle April. The only thing I might buy are the toners, since mine is out and I need it. (I might get a mascara too, since mines are dying and the Too Faced one is just awful...)

theBalm's NUDE'tude palette

You might call me crazy, but this is still a Christmas gift. I saved the money and tried to get it in January but it was sold out everywhere. February arrived and I was like "ok, I'll just pre-order it", so I pre-order it at MakeupPt because I know the store's owner and I trust her. In the end, the palette arrived (or should I say, I picked it up) last Friday. It's so pretty and I'll have lots of fun with this precious.

Bourjois Color Edition 24H cream Eyeshadow

I'm really curious about this product. I saw a not so good review about these but...I don't know, everyone seems to love the Color Tattoo from Maybelline and I personally don't like them at all...Let's see how this performs. I might try to get another colour in May or June.

The Scret Bag

The Secret bag is a montly service like Ipsy or Glossybox. I won't talk too much about the items here because I'll writting a post about all the items. In General I can say that I'm super happy with this month's bag. I got a backup and 3 items that I really needed and wanted.

And it's all. Take care dears, have a nice day!
With Love,
Diana. 

The Oil Cleansing Method

3/08/2014

Yes, I've been a bit off from the blog. School was making me crazy with many weekly projects and characters to learn and along with that, I caught a really bad flu. So I apologize for the lack of posts, I'll try to be more consistent again next week. 
Because of what I said on my previous post about the foaming cleansers and how I started a new cleansing regime, I though that I should do a post talking a bit about it. I want to mention that I'm not a dermatologist or anything like that, but I've done a lot of research. If you want to know more in deep things, please visit Caroline Hirons Blog , she is a expert in Beauty Industry. 


(this is a pure illustrative photo, taken from my instagram. Just because I like to have at least one picture with every post)

A brief background


Many of you know that I recently gave on the so called and popular “Foaming cleansers”. I had a terrible allergy and reaction to a cleanser from Avène. My face would be either super dry or super oily, my usual “hormonal breakouts” (from that time of the month) were super inflamed and would get worse every time I use that thing.  Because I have the policy of just buying a new cleanser or backups whenever the current is ending, I had to work something else. I remembered what Caroline Hirons had said about foaming cleansers.  A click was made. 
I decided to work a bit more with my The Body Shop cleansing butter (because it was what I had at home). At first, it was strange. But know? I'm glad I did it.  My skin is better than ever, the breakout started to fade away as soon as I started this regime. The texture is better, pores are getting clean. I decided to bane foaming cleansers and sulphates from my face. 

Sulphates - laureth sulfate sodium or Sodium lauryl ether sulfate – is a chemical component used is many cleansing products. From dish washers and clothing washers to face cleansing. The problem is, our plates and clothes aren't like out face, at all. Among the fact that sulphates remover every single natural oil that our face produces – both bad and good – it also create a nice playground to bacteria’s. Not good at all right? 

Not everything is perfect

Yes, not all oils are good. Mineral oils aren't really that good. Although here  they say that it’s okay, some people might have problems with him. It’s a originality from petroleum so, people with sensitive might not like him…

Quoting from Wikipedia :

“The name mineral oil by itself is imprecise, having been used to label many specific oils over the past few centuries. Other names, similarly imprecise, include white oil, liquid paraffin, pariffinum liquidum, and liquid petroleum. Baby oil refers to a perfumed mineral oil.”

Liquid paraffin can also be found in some moisturisers. Bad moisturisers I have to say. I had a few moisturisers and lip balms with this ingredient and they weren't good (remember the moisturiser I hated from Nivea? It had this…)
Another oil to avoid is coconut oil because it can clog your pores like there’s no tomorrow. It’s nice for your body, but not for your skin.  

Another thing is, don’t wet your face before applying the balm or oil. Apparently alkaline's our skin and messes up with our pH level. Oh, and be sure to change your cloth every day to prevent bacteria contamination – it’s the same philosophy that we have with bushes, is it nice to spread foundation with a very gross and dirty brush? No. The same is applied to face cloths. I personally bough a set of 10 from IKEA. 7 for the weak days and 3 spares. 

So yes. I gave on Foaming Cleansers. Next Step will be Foaming Shampoo and foaming body wash. 
In terms of recommendations I can for sure recommend the The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter since it’s the one I'm currently using. Una Brennan’s cleansing oil is also good for a pre-cleanse (like removing your make up before the actual cleansing). 
For sure, the mostly hyped Emma Hardie’s Moringa Cleansing Balm (the only thing that it’s between me and that cleansing balm is the price) and I'm curious about the Take the Day Off cleansing balm from Clinique (a bit expensive, but nothing that a Sephora coupon can’t help). Shue Uemura's and Shiseido's cleansing oils are also quite used and hyped (although I recommend to check the labels..) and I've heard good things about Holika Holika's Soda Pore Cleansing oil.  


More information can be found at acne.org and again, at Caroline Hirons 's Blog (no she didn't paid me to advertise her, although I wouldn't mind get a free Emma Hardie cleansing Balm! Ahaha, I'm kidding okay?) and also at Balance me Beauty  ( they have a really excellent guide on the cleansing oil method and different types of oils!) 
So, that’s it. Next I’ll be contemplating the chemical exfolianting toner, which is something that I'm yet to try out (which means, I won’t be talking about it for the next 2 or 3 months). It’s a bit more complicated so, I’ll probably have to ask help to a friend or another. 

If there’s anything you want to add or ask, feel free. 
Take care everyone, have a nice day!* 

February Favourites '14

3/02/2014






Please excuse me the crappy photo quality. The lighting was awful because of the rain...
Anyway, February was a hard month. Because I decided to be adventurous and change my cleanser, I got a really bad reaction. Now I decided to completely change my skin care routine and finally start listening to Caroline Hirons. Yes, no more foaming cleansers. I'm also trying to cut out any alchool based products - like tonics and masks. And Sulphates, no sulphates here.

The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Balm

The hero of this month. Because of my reaction I decided to finally start to listen to Caroline and start to use cleansing balm not only as make-up remover, but as a cleanser as well. Best decision ever. I'm really loving this little guy. A little goes long and, although I want to try out the cult balms (like Emma Hardie's and Omorovicza's ) I'll be using this baby for a long, long time. I'm also curious about oils like the Shiseido one and Shu Uemura's (although I won't be exploring that field now, I'll leave it for later during this year).
How I use this? I take a tiny bit, rub along my finger tips and than massage all over my face. All the oil and gunk is afterwards removed with a hot cloth. I have to change/wash my cloth every day because of all the gunk and make up traces .

The Body Shop Tea Tree Toner

Well..this is maybe the last time that you guys will see him here. After all the skin care issue, I got to tweet Caroline asking about this and well...he got a big no. I'll be changing him for the Aloe toner and for the Vitamin E one. Lush's Tea Tree Water is also a option. Although I have to say that he really helped my skin. but apparently he has a really big quantity of alcohol. Sorry honey...

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo

An old favourite that I'll keep for sure. This really helps my skin with irritation and along with a sulphate-free cleansing, this makes wonders. (even more than what's usual)
There is a new version , but  haven't seen it in stores. Once I get to try it out, I'll be sure to compare them.
Note : I use the French version of the Effaclar Duo. The American version has different ingredients and is used in a different way.

Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette

I got to talk about this palette in a previous post. It's really lovely palette and it will be a delight to use during the spring time. It has an wonderful combination of shimmer/satin shades and matte shades. Although, it's probably not everyone's cup of tea.

Bourjois Color Boost


Probably my favourite lip crayons. I love their colour pay-off and the glossy finish. They aren't stick and don't day my lips. Their lasting power is okay although, re-applying after eating is a must do. 
I specially loved Red Island, since it's more of a winter colour, but I know that Fuchsia Libre will be a must for the Spring.

M.A.C Paint Pot in Painterly

My favourite cream base. My eyeshadows wouldn't completely melt because of him - since Too Faced's primer wouldn't do much . The colour is amazing, and although the price was bitter-sweet, I don't really care any more. This is a good cream eyeshadow, actually, it's the best (along with benefit's) for me. 

Sleek Face Form in Light

Another old favourite. I really like the colours. They suit my complexion and are easy to use and blend. 
There isn't much more to say, I really love face powders from Sleek. They are cheap and easy to get 


And that's all. I'll be working on changing my skin care routine. As soon as I get a more adequate feedback, I'll be sure to share with you guys. I'll also working on two reviews.

Take care everyone, have a wonderful day!

With Love,
Diana.
