Spring’s In The Air: “Aire” by Loewe & Victoria’s Secret Fragrance Lotion

Victoria's Secret Fragrance Lotion

I absolutely adore perfumes… this is one of those subjects I could hear speak about for hours on end. I love the world of scents, and I’m fascinated by those people who can pinpoint exactly the components of a perfume and how it was blended (I admire this so much, I am unable to do this, much as I love fragrances). I love sniffing a perfume I’ve worn before and being engulfed in nostalgia, and […]

Astor EyeArtist Definer Automatic Eyeliner & Soft Sensation Lipstick

Astor EyeArtist Definer Automatic Eyeliner & Soft Sensation Lipstick

On the whole, Astor isn’t really a brand I tend to pay much attention to, so it’s quite unlikely I’d ever have tried the items in today’s reviews if it wasn’t for mother Nessie, the makeup enabler, who some months ago picked up this lipstick and liner set for me, the Astor EyeArtist Definer Automatic Eyeliner and Soft Sensation Lipstick. Astor Soft Sensation Lipstick As I was saying, if my mother hadn’t given me this, […]

Bioré UV Aqua Rich Essence SPF 50 / PA++++ & ISDIN SPF 40 Lip Balm

Bioré UV Aqua Rich Essence & ISDIN SPF 40 lip sunscreen

ISDIN SPF 40 Lip Balm It’s been a bit uphill for me to write this review, because, while I don’t find any serious cons about this product, I don’t really have much to say about it, either. And I generally like the suncare options from this Spanish brand. Anyway, the ISDIN SPF 40 lip balm is a fine product that does what it’s supposed to do, with no added frills or fun. It’s a firm […]

11 Blogger Questions, & An Unexpected Rec: Liebster Awards

Favorite films

Alicia from the blog Momentos de Evasión gave me a bit of a shock listing me among her nominees for the Liebster Awards. Eeeee! Okay, so there’s no gold-covered statuette involved or anything of the sort… it is merely a tag to acknowledge blogs you read and enjoy, and introduce them to other readers that might not yet have found them, a concept I love (though come to think of it, I can barely keep […]

Organic Rose Otto Lip Serum by Dr. Organic & Douglas Naturals lipbalm

Organic Rose Otto Lip Serum by Dr. Organic & Douglas Naturals lipbalm

I looove roses, I do, but as soon as Valentine’s starts creeping round social media and shop windows, suddenly the world is all via GIPHY But! the truth is that deep down I find collective nonsense like this entertaining, so I’m playing too, and today I bring roses… well, not really: I do bring lipbalm, though, which is a necessity for me at this time of the year; lately I’ve been using this Douglas Naturals […]

Review: The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% & Lactic Acid 10% + HA

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution

Isn’t everybody just sick of seeing The Ordinary all over SM and beyond? There simply isn’t a nook or cranny in the beauty blogosphere where this brand hasn’t gotten to; their products are like glitter, or like cockroaches (and their tune), or like Madonna, and her tunes… nevertheless, I haven’t escaped either: I’ve been using their Lactic Acid 10% and their Salicylic Acid 2% for months now. I’ve no problem admitting that I’m a fangirl […]

December nail roundup: Inglot, Masglo, Wet ‘n Wild, IDC Color, Essence

December Nail Roundup

When I began this blog, I decided to leave out nail product reviews because, even though it’s rare for me to meet a polish I don’t like, it isn’t really something I find much material to draw from for a proper post, beyond the weekly #mani or #pedi IGram. Yet, after examining my IG stats, I have now changed my mind… apparently, viewers like nail posts (who’d have thought?), so in light of this, I […]

I Love… Lemon Sorbet Body Butter, Shower Gel and Whipped Sugar Scrub

I Love... Lemon Sorbet Body Butter

I’d seen this brand often in my frequent trips to cosmetics shop, but its products never caught my eye: even so, one fine day I decided to give the I Love… Lemon Sorbet shower gel a sniff, and it was just as the brand name said: ooh, come to me, yummy, caloric-smelling lemon meringue pie. Yes, pie, even though it’s called Lemon Sorbet, but who cares; it smells like lemon pie and it’s delicious. It’s […]

🌻Love You, Love You Not… La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo + & Anthelios SPF 50+

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo +

One of these products I like very much, the other… not. In fact, I can’t bring myself to apply the latter now, so I stopped using it, or rather, I don’t use it on my face, which is what is made for. The product in question is La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF 50+ invisible face mist. I bought this one at the end of summer, when days were still long, so when it was time for […]

Review: Bifull Oval Brushes & Kat Von D Lock-It foundation

Kat von D Lock It foundation

Many of the things that become frequent flyers all over SM profiles end up tiring me fast, yet oval makeup brushes caught my eye from the start, till I finally nabbed this set of oval brushes from Bifull, a Spanish brand specializing in professional items for the beauty industry. On the whole, I have the impression that this is kind of one of those sort-of polarizing items in the beauty blogosphere, in the sense that […]

Resuming Reviewing: Nacomi Black Soap and Smooth Body Butter

Nacomi black soap

I like to take my time to evaluate how my paints and potions perform, and then write about the experience, and this time it can’t be said I didn’t give it a fair amount of time for judgement; if it hadn’t been because I hadn’t felt like posting for a while already, I’d have said I left my blogging muse stranded somewhere in an Asian airport… Yet, soon as I made myself put fingers to […]
