Benefit cosmetics Ka-Brow! reviewBenefit Cosmetics’ Ka-Brow is a brow cream/gel product with color (pomade) that comes in 6 shades. It comes in this beautiful packaging that’s also very practical, because it includes an angled flat brush on top, which is ideal for applying the pomade to your brows. It’s very easy to use, and even an amateur (like me!) can do it. You can use it to build either a natural or a more dramatic look to your brows, depending on your needs and personal preference. Mine is in the shade no. 3, which is perfect for my colors. So far I really love this product, and I use it everyday to shape my brows and make them look fuller. However, I’ve heard from girls who’ve bought it in the past that it dries quite quickly. I haven’t had a problem with that so far, but it’s something to look after. Make sure to keep the lid tightly closed, and don’t let it without a lid for a long time, because the oxygen might make it dry faster. Other than that, which again I hadn’t have a personal experience with, it’s an amazing product, which I really recommend.

NUXE Anti-fatigue Moisturising Eye Cream_Review

NUXE is famous for its incredible skincare products. Many bloggers and well-known websites speak highly of its moisturising creams.  When I was in need for a good eye cream, it didn’t took me long to buy the NUXE Anti-fatigue Moisturising eye cream. It has a light non greasy-formula and a discreet scent. It hydrates deeply your eyes thanks to the Blue Everlasting Flower extract. the brand promises to prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I don’t have any particular problem with these as I’m still 27. However, I can say that my eyes look bright and youthful. Moreover, the skin is smoother and in great condition to apply my concealer.  I started using it seven months ago when I noticed intense signs of stress and fatigue. Thanks to NUXE’s eye cream, these signs disappeared and I can even hide the fact that I’m sleepless.

All in all, it’s a great eye cream that it might not do wonders but still offers a lot. It’s a little bit expensive but it lasts for months even a year. I would definitely recommend you should try it out for yourself.

Skinfood Royal Honey Essential Queen's cream reviewWhen I got my hand on the Royal Honey Essential Queen’s cream by Skinfood, I wanted to try it out as soon as possible. And as I had predicted, it was love at first sight, or should I say smell? Let’s start with its heavenly scent, which smells like pure honey. It has a quite thick, gel-like consistency, in this nice 62ml jar, and it feels amazing on the skin, as soon as you apply it. It is a bit sticky at first, and has a film-like feel to it, but once it gets absorbed by your skin, it leaves it feeling properly hydrated and soft to the touch. Everything you would expect from a Korean brand, like Skinfood, since they’re famous for their skincare products. I would definitely recommend you should try it out for yourself, since it’s one of the best creams I’ve ever tried. You will find it at Sephora.

FooTherapy Tea Tree & Aloe Moisturizing foot lotion reviewThis foot lotion is by the brand Queen Helene, and it’s made in the USA. It’s very lightweight and moisturizing. It massages and softens sore, tired feet, and combines the skincare benefits of Tea Tree Oil with soothing aloe. It moisturizes heels and soles, relieves flaking and helps soften calluses (if you have any). It hasn’t been tested on animals and has no animal ingredients in it.

Kat von D Shade & Light Contour palette reviewWhat can I say about this gorgeous palette? It’s called Kat von D Shade & Light contour palette, and that’s because it includes 3 powders for contouring, and 3 powders for highlighting. Let’s start with the packaging, which is black matte, and has a nice big mirror on the top; perfect for taking it with you when traveling. It closes with a magnet which makes it easier to take with you in your  bag. The powders are of course all matte, and we have various shades, to fit all skin types. I personally use (mostly) 3 out of its 6 powders, just because these are the ones that fit my needs best. I use the lighter powder (top left) on the areas I want to be highlighted, and I use the 2 darker ones (from the left) to contour the areas I want to have more shade. You can even mix the colors together to create the color that fits your needs and skin tone. If you also buy the shade & light brush, you’d have the perfect contouring result. I love the fact that the powders are all very thinly cut and light on the face. But because of that you get a lot of fall out from the powders. Hardly a disantvantage for me, but I thought I should mention it here. All and all, I definitely recommend  you buy this. It’s an amazing product, that will make your makeup looks even better.

Sephora Rose eye & lip masks review Do you know Sephora’s Rose eye & lip masks (there’s also a face one)? I tried them both last month, and I am most excited to repurchase the lip one. I tried it on after a day when I had swatched tons of liquid lipsticks, and my lips were dry and swollen. The lip mask made them look very plump and hydrated again. You just leave it on your lips for 15 minutes, or more if you’d like, and take it off. It’s a sheet mask so it’s really easy to use; no fuss at all.

I left mine on for more than 15 minutes because my lips were looking horrible and needed a lot of hydration, and didn’t take it off until the lip mask was completely dry. That took around 30 minutes or less. But there’s usually a lot of product in these single-use masks, which is very light-weight and nicely scented and feels likes a serum on your face/lips. So you can use the remaining product left on the mask and packaging and put it on your face or lips as a serum. I suggest you “lock the hydration” with a lip balm after using the lip mask, and follow the face masks with hydrating creams.

As for the eye mask, I didn’t notice anything breath-taking, but I did like the fact that it left my under-eye area more hydrated and radiant. They’re both really good and I highly suggest you try any of these Sephora masks, which are all very hydrating and affordable too. I’m definitely going to purchase more of them in the future!

L'Oreal Miss Baby Roll mascara review

I’ve been using L’Oreal’s Miss Baby Roll mascara for quite a while now, and to be honest it was love at first sight. I really love how it makes my lashes look, which is fuller and longer, but not TOO much that they look unnatural. Its wand is very good, and catches all my lashes easily, from the shortest to the longest ones, making them look at their best. I think that it’s the best mascara I’ve used so far, at least for my lashes, and I’ve used plenty, so that’s something! If you also consider how inexpensive it is, I think you really need to give it a try! It comes in many colors so if you already have a black one, and you’re looking for something more colorful, you can try those instead.
