Seche Vite Dupe?

Today we are talking about a HG product: Seche Vite top coat. Everyone and their cat is using this after applying nail polish in order to have shiny, dry-in-a-minute nails. We are not going to argue about whether the Seche Vite is worth the money or the hype; if you ask me it definitely is. However, if you are on a budget there are alternatives that you can use and probably do almost the same job! Is the China Glaze top coat one of them?

Review: L'oreal Glamshine Stain Splash or Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain

Judging from this post’s title you might think I’m indecisive! However, don’t you think L’oreal makes it a bit confusing for us when they launch a product and give them a different name in Europe and another in the US? Having said that I’ve bought mine from Russia before they launched in Europe and I don’t even want to know what they might call them there! So, a lip gloss product that promises you a 6 hour hydration and a staying power of a stain, huh?

Brand Introduction: Michael Todd True Organics & Giveaway

Michael Todd True Organics is a brand that has got a lot of hype through YouTube and the Blogoshere. They are a company that makes skincare for all different skin types with 70% organic ingredients. I got drawn to it after YouTubers' reviews about their acne/blemish skincare regime. I was very skeptical about the “organic” idea of the line since I am a person that has treated acne with Accuran and strong prescriptions and have never looked at the ingredient list of any skincare products because the harsher the chemicals the better the results (!). I was definitely never a believer that natural products and oils can ever make the slightest difference if you don’t follow any prescription. Well, these products have changed my way of thinking and my attitude towards natural products. They have made a huge change to my skin and I’m kind of happy that I only use natural products to treat my problem areas without inserting any chemicals into my body. Let’s see the products one by one and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each.

My favourite BB Cream

Today I’m presenting you my favourite BB cream of all times! After all my research and all the fails of drugstore brands, launching tinted moisturisers as BB creams with no actual skincare benefits, I’ve found the one!

Review: Sephora Waterproof Jumbo Liner 12HR Wear

Each and every one of us are fans of a quick fix on our makeup that will last all day. Also, we are fans of anything compact of anything we can throw into our handbag for later use into the day. So when I stumbled upon those jumbo liners by Sephora my heart skipped a bit!

The Battle of Hair Oils

Last year I feel that we were bombarded with oils for haircare and skincare. We shifted from the belief that using oils will make your hair or face greasy and dry oils entered our lives. Each brand started making their own and here I am with four of them to let you know how I use them and which one I believe does the best job for my hair.

Review: Rimmel London Apocalips

Rimmel London is one of my favourite drugstore brands. Not only because they make the best mattifying powder ever (aka Stay Matte Powder for those of you who have been living under a rock lately) but also because they seem to follow the beauty updates very closely with great launches every now and then making us non UK based beauty bloggers counting down the days until the product hits or This time they did it again with the Apocalips; epic name, isn’t it?

Favourites January 2014

I can’t believe the first month of 2014 is already gone! At the moment that I’m writing this post I got the news that my niece was born, so excuse the fact that I might not be making any sense throughout!!! So we got through the most depressing month of the year according to scientists. They say it is because of the post-holiday season and all the resolutions that we make that we feel very stressed and depressed this month. But we got through it alright, didn’t we? Let’s dig in what products I’ve been loving this month then!

Review: Maybelline The Rocket Mascara

Are mascaras the most controversial thing on the blogosphere or is that just my impression? In my opinion, whether a mascara will suit you or not is as subjective as foundation. There are so many types of wands and formulas out there that promise you huge eyelashes no matter what. Today I’m going to get into deep about a very well hyped one the Maybelline’s The Rocket Mascara.
