Catrice – The Essential Nude Collection Eyeshadow Palette | Review

I know, I know. You might ask yourselves the same question. Does anybody still need yet another nude eyeshadow palette? The answer is yes. Let me tell you why. I didn’t like their previous formulations. They were very powdery and barely pigmented. I got them a few years ago and I couldn’t care less about them. I swatched the Catrice Cosmetics The Essential Nude Collection Eyeshadow Palette out of curiosity when I was walking around my local drugstore. My first response was – WOW these are different. I didn’t like the previous formulations of the eyeshadow palettes from the Catrice Cosmetics. They were very powdery and barely pigmented. I got them a few years ago and […]

Peony Cosmetics Shadow Trio 73,5% Natural Palette | Review

Peony Cosmetics Shadow Trio 73,5% Natural Palette | Review

Peony Cosmetics is one of the beauty brands supporting the ‘green’ philosophy of the makeup production. The research of the brands and products prior the review can sometimes affect our judgement of the product. At least that what happened with this shadow trio palette. Before we proceed, we have to clear out few things. As the time goes by, we learn more about the importance of the chemical ingredients our skin has to deal with every day. Naturally, it is an ongoing process and we are far from being specialists in that subject. We do honestly appreciate all the niche brands that formulate their products with care for the environment and […]

The Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips in Natural Nude | Review

The Physicians Formula finally got to the Netherlands. Although the assortment at Bozzyshop (Dutch online beauty retailer) is not complete, there are some products from the brand available that are already cult classics for many. Product of Love – Physicians Formula The first cosmetics line was created by allergist Dr Frank Crandall for his wife in the 30 of the last century. Now so may years later, the brand still stands for their original values and never adds fragrance and disses over 100 know irritants in their products formulation. I am very pleased to be able to try out the PF products finally! I start my reviews with this eyeshadow palette.  The Shimmer […]

e.l.f Compact Powder Blush Palette in Dark | Review

e.l.f Compact Powder Blush Palette in Dark | Review

e.l.f’s Compact Powder Blush Palette is almost five-star product according to the e.l.f customers.

You get 16 g of the product (4 x 4g) for only €8. The solid black plastic packaging with hight quality mirror got me even more excited about the […]

Radiance Reveal Concealer and other favourites from Bourjois Paris

Radiance Reveal Concealer and other favourites from Bourjois Paris

Personally, for me, the under eye area is tough to deal with. I have issues with dryness and lines that make every concealer crease at some point. So I was intrigued by the Bourjois Paris Radiance Reveal Concealer review from Dagmara – Mummy’s Beauty Corner Blog, where she recommended it as an everyday, medium coverage concealer suitable for under the eyes. Although it is not common for me to share a review juts after few days of testing. But after few hot days here in the Netherlands and hitting the gym I can share my thoughts on the Radiance Reveal Concealer. Since I have been a devoted fan of the Bourjois products for years, I […]

MAC Burgundy Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Burgundy Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Burgundy Times Nine eyeshadow palette caught my attention immediately. I saw MAC makeup artists doing a simple look with it at their Instagram account. In contrary to the She’s a Model palette filled with neutral shades (review here) the Burgundy Times Nine, as the name suggests, is full of warm-toned eyeshadows.This compacted pan looks like a dream come true of every beauty lover. Shades The shade selection and the combination of the eyeshadow finishes should satisfy the most demanding burgundy eyeshadow freaks out there. The majority of the shades have a matte finish. Well, I call it matte finish eyeshadows. MAC naturally differentiates them between matte, velvet and satin finish ones. You […]

Max Factor Masterpiece Nude Palette | Review + Swatches

Max Factor Masterpiece Nude Palette | Review + Swatches

Max Factor Masterpiece Nude Palettes come in three colour options resembling, to some degree, Urban Decay Naked palettes. The palette I have is in number 03 Rose Nudes. The pink undertones are one of my favourites in the eyeshadows since they not only fit my neutral skin undertone, but they also enhance my green eyes. I bought it last summer. And somehow I gave up the review on it at that time. This weekend when I was going through my pictures I found it in no name folder. I went to through my drawers and there it was. In the back, forgotten. The plastic packaging plastic with a transparent lid is […]

Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Collection Review

Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Collection Review

The Everyday Eyes Powder Eyeshadow Collection from Milani has been recommended by many. There are several colour options to chose from. Six to be exact. We are not big fans of spending money on something unknown. Therefore, we went for the safest option available. And yet again, we got ourselves another nude eyeshadow palette. We know we are late to the party. But anyways, let us introduce you to the Bare Necessities palette. Milani’s Bare Necessities Just by looking at it you cannot tell it is a budget friendly makeup, right? The golden plastic packaging and transparent lid are decently done. On top of the six eyeshadows, you get a small double-ended makeup brush. It’s […]
