    Kérastase Elixir Ultime

    My #1 favorite hair product

    I have very fine, bleached hair, therefor it gets very dry and breaks a lot. A friend gave this to me and told me I should try it. At first I wasn't really convinced as I thought every oil moisturizer is the same, but I was so wrong. It totally changed my life. After the first application my hair got smooth, super soft and shiny. Just like it wasn't damaged at all. Never had such good hair in YEARS. I spent the whole day touching it because I couldn't believe the softness. Now I use this product everytime I wash my hair and I can't live without it anymore. I have tried other brands before such as Redken and they don't work as well.

  • Nars Concealer

    Nars Concealer

    Not enough coverage

    It doesn't have enough coverage for my fair skin. My undereye still looked too dark. So I had to apply a lot. And I finished the product in only 3 months (I usually need to buy every 6 months or so). The lipstick shape is not a good idea either as it doesnt fit in eye corner, and applying with a brush doesn't help as it makes it even less covering. I guess NARS paid attention to customer opinion because they just changed their concealer. I am currently trying the new one, I can already say it has more coverage.

    Nars Single Eye Shadow

    Best eyeshadows.

    NARS eyeshadows are the best in my opinion. Best pigmentation, best quality. I buy all my black/dark shadows from them. They also last very long as you only need a small amount, and the size of the product is 2x to 4x the size you get at other brands. A shame it is SO expensive. I wish I could own many of them but I only buy the ones I really need and will use often.

  • Sally Hansen Super Shine Shiny Top Coat

    It is a great product. I use it as a top coat, it makes the polish shine and last longer. I have been using every 3-4 days it for the last 4 months and the bottle is just half empty, so it's definitely a good buy.

  • Carmex Original Tube
    10.0

    Carmex Original Tube

    Best lip balm ever

    It is a makeup artist must-have. I have been using it for years now. When I was a teenager I always had dry lips and I wish I had found about this product earlier. I have about ten of them at all times, I always carry at least two of them in my bag and I keep giving away some to my friends. I use it everytime I feel the need to, and I swear after I started using Carmex everyday I never experienced dry lips ever again. At work, I use it as a moisturizing primer on the model, no matter what her lip condition is, it makes the lips smoother and the lipstick and pencil will apply much easier. The tube one is the best in my opinion because it stays creamy, in winter the other packagings can get really hard and won't apply well. Not to mention it's very inexpensive compared to other brands that don't even work as well.

  • Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream

    Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream

    Not worth the price

    A salesperson pushed me into buying this after she applied it on me before eyeshadow. I thought it might make my undereye wrinkles a little bit less visible but it didn't. It is hydrating but I didn't need it since my skin is not dry at all around the eyes. The packaging is super heavy, too, and it made my makeup bag so heavy I ended up putting it away and never used it again. What a waste of money.

  • Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer

    Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer

    Best undereye concealer on the market

    It is perfect for concealing dark circles and offers good coverage. However undereye wrinkles tend to show a bit more than with other concealers I tried. It is important to fix it well, preferably with a mineral or HD powder. Like a reviewer stated before, it doesn't work as well for imperfections because it is very creamy therefore harder to apply very locally. You'll need a small concealer brush and a good fixing powder afterwards. You might have to repeat application twice.

  • Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara

    Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara

    Not great for short lashes

    I like that it doesn't clump but it doesn't do wonders on asian lashes for example. It is great for people who already have long eyelashes and just need to add volume and dimension.

  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils

    I use them as an eyeshadow base, too. They don't crease and they are very pigmented and easy to apply.
