This is a very good foundation for drugstore type and it is a 60% match dupe to the Estee Lauder double wear foundation. For a chemist's verdict and indepth review and ingredient analysis check out my blog bonds-of-beauty. The lack of colours does make it less superior but the finish and function is almost identical to the Estee Lauder double wear. It contains some good ingredients but also some that some prefer to avoid.
Their products are mid range in price but often of high quality. They rarely dissapoint and they have one of the best eye shadows, lipsticks and lip liners in the world not to mention amazing concealers and setting sprays. Very affortable brand that could easily have been more expensive for the quality of products that they offer.
An amazing liquid liner that lasts all day. The brush is so accurste thin and easy to use and the liner is nicely black and matte. It doesn't smudge amd even though it's not waterproof it won't come off if you just splash water on yiur eyes, only if your rub them. This is a cheap but quality liner that i use on a daily basis.
This is a nice dewy foundation for dry skin. It rrally doesn't work for oily skin and it comes off in contact. It applies easily and lasts all day. If you have dry and texture perfect skin then this foundation will compliment you well.

This is a good sponge that applies foundation easily. It doesn't absorb much of it and it washes easily. It also comes in a lot of colours so you can choose whichever one you like the best but it is very expensive. There are much cheaper options that work equally as well if not a little better.

These actually work really well. They are as thin and natural looking on the skin as the naked skin concealer but at the same time they colour correct your skin. Using the right colour of these to colour correct and then the naked skin concealer and you will have under eye perfection. They dry on their own, don't crease and last all day.
It has a huge mirror inside and contains nine colours of which 4 are matte and the rest 8 are shimmers. The eye shadows have really cute names with places from all around the world which is lovely. Their names came on a transparent extra sheet which is easy to loose but that is literally the only negative about this palette.
The colours in this i-Divine Vintage Romance palette definitely suit the February “love theme” and they are gorgeous. They swatch really beautiful and last for hours if you wear an eye shadow primer.
I wouldn’t say that they are creamy and some have a fair amount of fallout, however, they are all workable and you can easily make them work. They are mostly shimmer colours which are not exactly know to be creamy anyways and they would be the kind of colour that you would put on the main lid and wouldn’t need to blend much either.
Very affordable. For swatches check out my blog bonds-of-beauty.
It doesn’t smell like a cosmetic or a cream but as long as you are fine with the scent, the product is good. This is a deep moisturising serum that you are meant to use in the morning and night before your moisturiser. It’s special ingredients are mainly grape fruit water and grape juice which are Caudalie’s signature ingredients but it also contains hyaluronic acid. It feels lovely on the skin and is absorbed immediately and fully without any sticky residues but, with the exception of the grape ingredients, the other’s are not any more special than other good moisturising products.If you have dry skin perhaps this is worth a try.
This is a day anti-wrinkle cream that works well under makeup too. It is meant to reduce the depth of wrinkles and improve skin firmness and hydration.You are meant to apply it every morning to a cleansed but dry skin while avoiding eye contact. It has a faint but nice floral type scent and it gets absorbed by the skin quickly. It doesn’t leave any sticky residues behind and it feels nice on the skin.
This eye cream has a pleasant scent with a strong hint of lemon but not just. The white cream is absorbed quickly by the skin and it leaves it feeling soft and smooth without any sticky residues left behind.
I haven’t noticed any reduced puffiness or improvement in my dark circles however, skin care and especially eye care, is a long term business.
There are a lot of interesting ingredients in this cream, including hyaluronic acid and vitamins.
