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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Lip color and care: Essence lipstick & Dizao Organics lipbalm

Dizao Organics Sea Buckthorn Replenishing Lipbalm

As a rule, I’m all about gloriously tacky colors and piling up on the eye makeup, while being very conservative and dull with lip products. For a self-confessed lover of makeup, I actually don’t have many lip color products (four at last count, if you’re curious), and half of those are soft nudey pinks. But one fine evening in a beauty shop, I ran into this pretty plum lipstick by Essence that decided to just […]

Bamboo Beauty Review: Ecotools Brushes and TONYMOLY Bamboo Gel

Ecotools Brushes and TONYMOLY Bamboo Gel

I’ve been eyeing the Ecotools brushes for ages, and now these are mine mine mine… there isn’t much more left to be said about this brand, which has certainly become popular in the Spanish beauty blogosphere and beyond, with good reason: they are great value for the price, and as eco-friendly as a consumer product can get. As for the TONYMOLY bamboo gel, I bought this after an unfortunate incident with a DIY mask (an […]

Angel and demon: Bell Cosmetics Secretale Brow Pencil and Technic Brow Gel

Secretale Ideal Brow Pencil and Technic Brow Gel

It’s been a while now since my brows have lost the density of youth, and until not long ago, my solution to keep from looking like the Mona Lisa was to fill them with a little eyeshadow or eyeliner. However, one day an acquaintance who is a MUA gently let me know my brows looked too black, and she was right; she also suggested I look for a product specific for brows, preferably in a […]

Staples in my stash: Mineralissima mineral makeup

Mineralissima mineral foundation

About 8 or 9 years ago I discovered mineral foundation while wandering online, and until not long ago, I didn’t want to use anything else… it was quite the discovery for my oily skin, exacerbated by my habit of using sunscreen and the warm climate where I live. I began using other brands that I quite liked overall, but due to circumstances, I switched a few times until I found Mineralissima mineral makeup, which I’ve […]
