I recently tried out Sephora’s Rose masks for the eyes and the lips (not pictured here), and I’m here to write my review about them.
Sephora Rose lip mask: I tried it after I’ve swatched the full 44 shades collection of Sephora’s Cream Lip Stains on my lips the other day (watch my video below to see them), and it really helped my lips feel hydrated and normal again. It has a nice discreet rose scent and has a lot of product in it. My lips were so dry that they left the mask completely dry too after using it, but that’s good because they took all the good elements the mask had to give them. Follow up with a deeply moisturizing lip balm, and your lips are going to feel perfect again in no time. 5/5 for me.
This baby came in the mail about 2 months ago, and from the moment I laid my hands on it I was in love. Honestly, it’s one of the best mascaras I’ve ever tried. It does wonders for my lashes which are not too short, but are quite flat. It has a really nice wand (which you can see in the photo below), which does an amazing job of separating my lashes while giving them lots of length and a bit of a volume. I’m not too picky when it comes to mascaras, but I rarely use one I really like, and this is one I love and highly recommend. Being a L’oreal mascara means that it’s quite affordable too. You can find it in other colors as well, but black is all I need.
Unicornia is a small Greek brand, which makes natural skincare products. I got to know them through a friend and when I saw them up close I decided to buy their scrub to try it out. All I can say is that I absolutely loved this whipped Body Scrub, with the fitting name Bananicious. As you can guess, it takes its name because of its banana scent, and ingredients. It’s not a harsh exfoliator, on the contrary, it’s very gentle but efficient, and leaves your skin nicely exfoliated and soft, with a nice banana scent. I don’t know if they’d be able to ship to other countries in the future, but for now they only ship to Greece. They get a definite 10 from me, and I’ll definitely try out more of their products.
Promised you I’ll be back with new reviews, and here’s another one. I’ve been using Wycon Cosmetics’ Lift Effect Foundation for a few months now and it’s time to share my opinion about it. It’s a really nice foundation, not too matte, not too dewy, that has SPF15 and it looks very natural on the skin. I went with shade 02 (Beige) which turned out to be darker than I’d like it to be, so that made it difficult for me to wear everyday, but I did wear it plenty of times. It has a nice consistency, not too thick not too thin, which makes it easy to apply it either with a brush or a makeup sponge and it stays put for hours. If I had chosen the proper shade for me I would have worn it much more, so I’m sad that I didn’t. Compared to all the other foundations I’ve tried so far I’d give it an 8/10 because I do like it, but I don’t love it. So my search for the best foundation for my skin continues.
This review is long due, and I really wanted to talk to you about this product. I actually hadn’t written a review in quite a while, that’s why, but I think it’s finally time to have a talk about it. You may have heard about Maybelline’s Instant Anti-Age concealer before, or you might know it as Instant Age-Rewind concealer, as it’s more well-known in other countries. We actually didn’t have it in Greece till a few months ago, when it was finally released, and I’ve heard so much about it, that I was dying to try it out. Thankfully Maybelline sent me one of the first ones to try and I can see why there’s been such a hype about it. It’s really light-weight, it conceals my dark circles perfectly, it doesn’t stay in the fine lines, but it stays put for hours, and doesn’t need any setting powder on it. It’s very easy to use, by twisting its body, and applying it with the sponge on top of the product, you get just the right amount. I also love the fact, that you can see how much product you have left, so you can buy another one before this one finishes. The only thing I would love, is if we had more shades of the product, available in Greece, because this Beige Nu, might be light enough to use, but it’s still darker than my skin, so when I’m using a lighter foundation, I can’t use this one. Other than that, it’s perfect. Have you tried it? What’s your opinion about it?
