Let’s talk about Nars’ bronzing powder in the shade “casino”. I got it a couple of months ago, when the brand officially entered the Greek market, through Sephora, and I immediately liked its shade. It’s a very natural and warm color, that works great for light skintones such as mine. It’s easily blendable, and you can build the color for a more intense look, or if you have a darker skintone than mine. You get that beautiful bronzed look we all want for the summer days in a very natural way, and it’s my go-to product these days. So say bye bye to contouring, and hello to bronzing, because summer wants you more natural and radiant. Check it out at your local Sephora or online.
I’m sure you already know by now, that Jennifer Lopez has collaborated with Inglot, and launched a new collection of makeup products. The collection is called JLo x Inglot, and I’m lucky to have tried some of the amazing products of this collaboration. Today I’m reviewing, the eye shadows, and the HD Sculpting powder, and I have only good news to share with you. First of all, I have the shades Sienna and Copper in my freedom system palette, which are 2 of the most popular colors of the collection, and as you can imagine, my personal favorites. Sienna is a nice matte burnt orange shade, which is very special, and copper is a medium/dark copper with orange/red undertones and a pearly finish. They both have great pigmentation and can be used together (or not) to create a nice warm eye look. They are both very easy to blend too. The HD Sculpting powder is in Cocoa shade, which is the lightest one, and it’s the perfect shade for fairer skintones, like mine. It’s as pigmented as it needs to be, and I love its shade. The packaging of the freedom palette itself is also very pretty, since it’s been adorned with minimal graphics and the name of Jennifer Lopez on the top lid. Of course, the palette is magnetic as every freedom system palette of Inglot, which is something I really love, so you can play around and create a unique palette for you, with the colors you love. Make sure to check the products out at Inglot stores worldwide.
I started using this make up remover over the past month or so, and so far I’m not impressed with it. It’s indeed very gentle, it has a discreet scent, and it’s bi-phase, so you need to shake it well before using it. But I don’t think that it cleans my makeup as easily and thoroughly as other bi-phase makeup removers, and that bothers me. I need to apply it a couple or more times to remove my makeup properly, and I still see some make up on my disks when I continue with my cleansing milk and toning lotion. So I don’t find it as potent as other make up removers. It’s not bad, but I won’t be purchasing it again in the future. I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
I’ve been trying this firming Serum for the past few months, and it’s almost at its last “drops”, so I thought it is finally time to review it here on the blog. To be honest I thought I’ve already done so, but it seems that I didn’t. When I first tried out this serum, I found it amazing. It has a beautiful citrus-like scent, that’s very pleasant, it has a gel consistency, and a nice pump applicator, that reveals how much product is left when looking at it from the side. One pump is enough to cover your face, it’s very lightweight on the skin, gets easily absorbed, and prepares the skin for the night or day cream you use on the next step. I didn’t notice any firmness factor, but I did like how it made my skin look and feel. After some weeks, that wasn’t as obvious as it was when I first started using it. It still smells amazing etc. but doesn’t work as good on my skin as it did before. Moreover, I feel like it emptied very quickly compared to the other serums I’ve used in the past. I wouldn’t mind buying it again, but I think that La Roche Posay’s serum was much better for my skin. I give it 4/5 stars.
I started using these 2 products by Lorvenn recently and I couldn’t wait to share the news with you. Lorvenn’s Theraplex Intensive shampoo, is a hair color stabilizing and damaged hair repair system. Its intensive formula is enriched with active Silk Protein complex of advanced-technology, organic Keratin, Aloe Vera and Provitamin B5, to protect, repair and nourish hair. It helps restore hair’s natural environment and enhances strength, leaving them supple, soft, shiny and with a long-lasting color. After dying your hair, apply the shampoo and leave it on for about 2 minutes. Rinse it thoroughly and continue with the Bond Stabilizer conditioner. This conditioner is for intense care only which means you can use it once (or twice-maximum- if your hair is extremely damaged) per week. You apply it on your hair, and leave it on for 10 minutes. You’ll immediately understand a difference once your rinse the product off. It leaves your hair super soft, hydrated and shiny. I really really loved this conditioner and I highly recommend it. My hair never looked better! 🙂
