Not fuchsia, but very pretty

Posted on Dec 11, 2013

The name is so deceiving, this is not fuchsia at all! (nor fiery). It's a slightly brownish dark pink, with a beautiful sheen (it's not shimmery, but it definitely has a sheen). I recommend that you look for pictures before buying. But I love the colour, it looks very natural and I find it very flattering. It's a bit darker than my natural lip colour, but when I wear it I don't look made up. It's definitely a "my-lips-but-better" shade. Plus, I found the lipstick moisturizing and creamy, it's very nice to wear. If you want something fuchsia and bright, keep looking. However, if you like nude natural shades, this might be perfect for you.

I love this palette! It has the perfect size for traveling, and inside you have everything you need (except foundation). The eyeshadows are quite pigmented, and the colours are very pretty. I especially like the green, the blue-grey and the lightest colours (champagne and soft pink). Only one eyeshadow is matte, but most of them are not too sparkly, so they suit everyone. You can make neutral and natural looks and evening looks as well (I wish it had a black eyeshadow, but it's okay anyway). There is a cream highlighter too, which is very nice. The palette has a pink shimmery blush (incredibly pigmented), a bronzer and powder for fixing your eyebrows (you can use this three as eyeshadows too). There is a black eyeliner, but the pencil is tiny (it's nice and creamy, but a bit too small). On the lipgloss side, there are 10 of them. The lightest colours are sheer, but the darker ones are quite pigmented and stain the lips. The downside is that it's not very convenient to touch up your lipgloss during the day with this palette. The palette has a big, lovely mirror and some tiny brushes that are OK but not very useful (the lip brush is nice though). Overall, I think this is great if you don't like to carry a lot of weight when you travel but you like to have a nice collection of make up, and a perfect gift for someone who is starting with make up. Definitely recommended!

I'm in love

I'm very happy with this conditioner. My hair is long, wavy and a bit frizzy, and after applying the conditioner I can straighten it easily with a hair dryer. The result is very noticeable, not only my hair is softer, it's not frizzy anymore. My partner commented on how much better my hair looked too. It feels as if the conditioner made my hair "heavier" (in a good way!). It's difficult to explain but the way it falls to my shoulders feels heavier and smoother, with less volume (just what I was looking for). It doesn't clump my hair or leave it greasy, but if you have very fine hair or would like to have volume, this conditioner might not be good for you. The only downside is that it doesn't deliver the shine it promises (I actually think the conditioner made my hair less shiny than usual). But for me it's worth it, I love the silky feeling and softness of my hair now. The scent of the product is very pleasant, but unfortunately it doesn't linger on the hair after blow drying it. To sum up, I recommend this conditioner if you want silky soft, smooth hair and don't mind sacrificing a bit of volume and shine. Plus, you only need a small amount of product, so this tube will last for a while.

Very nice sheer shimmery blush

Posted on Dec 09, 2013

5 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

This blush is quite sheer, so it's perfect if you are afraid of applying it too heavily (you won't look like a clown even if you apply a bit too much). The colour it leaves on the skin is very natural, like a sheer pinky apricot shade which I find very flattering. It is quite shimmery, though. I think it looks nice and really brightens your face, but if you like matte blushes you might want to avoid this. The design of the blush is really cute, and it smells of violets (it would make a lovely present). The packaging is very nice and compact, and it contains a mirror and a brush (the brush is not very soft but it's useful to touch up). The "happiness boosting" claim is a gimmick, but since the blush is so nice and pretty, it'll make you smile when you look at it. I gave it four stars because mine it's not properly glued to the base, it moves when you swipe the brush and I'm afraid it might fall off.

Nice tiny size, eyeshadows not very pigmented

Posted on Jul 16, 2014

This palette is very small, it fits in the palm of my hand! It's a perfect travel palette size-wise. The eyeshadows are nice daytime colours, nothing too dramatic or bold here. Sadly, the pigmentation is a bit disappointing, which is fine if you like very discreet make up, but I found it lacking. Most of the colours have a light sheen, but some look matte (there's no shimmer or glitter). The worst are the dark blue (it looks beautiful but disappears when you try to blend it) and the light pink (just invisible). The best, in my opinion, are the light golden brown (decent pigmentation and lovely nude shade) and the dark green (it needs a little work but the colour is very pretty). The lip glosses are not very glossy, but it's a nice selection of colours (even though I miss a red). I found them a bit "oily", but they are not very sheer. I really like the rightmost shade, it's a pretty nude shade. Overall, they're nice. The mascara is tiny and there's very little product inside. It gives a very natural look (again, nothing bold or dramatic). I think it's smaller than regular samples of mascara or mini-mascaras, so you won't be able to fit those into the palette when it runs out (I had a 3.5ml one and it didn't fit). The three blushes are great, beautiful colours and very pigmented, I think it's the best part of the palette. It has a very nice mirror, but you can only see it when you apply eyeshadow because if you open the lipgloss tray, the mirror is covered by the eyeshadow tray. It's confusing to explain, and it's not really a flaw, but I wish there were mirrors in every tray. The applicators and little brushes are OK, but they are not held by anything so they can fall out of the palette when it's open. To sum up, I love the size, love the concept, but I'm not impressed with the quality. I recommend this palette only if you wear subtle make up. It's very convenient and the size is tiny, so you can carry it around easily. But don't expect too much pigmentation.

Great brush set

Posted on Mar 07, 2013

4 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

These brushes are very soft and useful, the set is perfect to get a great result when applying foundation and powder. They are smaller than they look, but this makes them perfect for traveling. I prefer bigger brushes for face powder, but smaller ones are really good when applying blush, concealer, or when contouring. The desing is very cute, they look lovely, and feel very good quality. If you like smaller brushes or need a travel set, these are absolutely perfect!

Nice

This cream is very moisturizing, but I don't think it's light, you should really use a tiny amount, otherwise your skin would remain sticky. I haven't noticed any firming results, but that's OK.

Wonderful

Purchased at iHerb

This incense has a sweet, rich scent which I find very calming and relaxing. It's not sickly sweet but "grown up sweet" (if that makes any sense :P), alluring and elegant. It's not smoky at all, so I think it would be perfect for people not very keen on incense. It includes a tiny ceramic holder (not useful for collecting ashes but it holds the incense and it's cute, I like it). Overall, the quality is very good and the scent is wonderful, recommended!

Lovely nude shade

Posted on Dec 09, 2013

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I love this lipstick. It's quite sheer, so it looks very natural. It's a dusty rose shade that lets your natural lip colour show, and I find it very flattering. Plus, the lipstick glides on easily, it's creamy and moisturizing, lovely! If you don't like bright lipstick, this is perfect because it looks so natural and beautiful. However, if your lips are very dark, this colour might not show at all because of the sheerness and lightness of the shade.

The lilac scent doesn't last long

Posted on Jun 10, 2014

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

At first it smells really pleasant, lilacs and something fruity. The scent is very strong so a gentle dab on your neck and in your wrists is enough. But after a little while, the nice lilac scent disappears and only remains a synthetic musk scent. It smells a bit "cheap", in my opinion. But it's not a cheap perfume (you only get 10ml for $12, so a 50ml bottle would be $60) that's why I give it only 3 stars. If you don't mind the lilac scent disappearing quickly, it's a convenient perfume to carry around with you.

Very good

I think this is a very good quality almond flour. At first I thought it wasn't very fined milled, but after kneading and baking I found it to be just perfect. It has little bits of almond skin, which is OK, but it may show in the baked good you make. I made Spanish marzipan and it turned out great. I will buy again.

Tasty!

Very tasty licorice with natural ingredients, I love it. If you like black licorice, you should try it. It is soft and chewy, but once you open the box, it starts to harden (this wasn't a problem for me because we ate the whole box before it got too hard).
