Sigma is good in packaging and providing information. All the brushes come in a lovely bag with an information guide as when to use which brush. If you order for more than 40$ you get a free gift, which is the travel size E25, I now have two of them, it's a very convenient brush...
Off course reviews of these brushes will follow in the future, I sincerely hope they wind up in the love-department of Sigma. Now I have enough Sigma brushes, I only have a few MAC and Shu Uemura ones on my listing but these babies are at a higher cost....
Which is your favourite brush ever??
I'm going to bed now, I'll try and rewrite them some time soon so you'll be able to enjoy them!!
The cream has a more lotion-like-texture and spreads out easily. When squeezing the product out of the tube the perfume immediately hits in, it's quite a strong scent that's hard to define - it's best described as floral. It sinks in fast and doesn't leave your hands with a greasy film/feeling. Afterwards my hands feel moist and soft. Sadly enough the moisturizing feeling dissapears soon, and my hands return to their dry state. When using more product to get an optimized effect, it leaves a greasy film so that's not an option. I've been using it often, because I have to use it more than other -more- moisturizing hand creams I've used in the past. At the cost of 15euros for this tube, when bought seperately, it's too pricey for its poor effect...
The goods: sinks in fast, no greasy film
The bads: heavy scent, only slightly moisturizing, price
Overall, I won't repurchase this product because the cons outweigh the pros. If you have more normal to oily skin/hands you might like this product better, but I wouldn't recommend it for dry hands. There are better alternatives, at a fraction of this price available.
I like the packaging, it looks simple but sophisticated at the same time. It comes in a tube, which is very hygienic and easy in usage (I don't like jar creamshadows). The ingredients are also very interesting: it doesn't contain perfume, there are silicones in it to smoothen your skin around the eye area and diminish the appearance of wrinkles. Apart from that it's also water-proof.
When you're finished spreading it, it leaves a goldenbrownish glow that looks very subtle and has a more satin finish (keep in mind that on darker skin tones the colour will blend more in your own skin tone). Depending on the lighting the colour varies a bit. The product is easy in usage, spreads and blends easily. Just be carefull you don't use too much in the beginning, that was my problem. It doesn't crease and stays put all day. The tiny downside to this is its price, I paid 17£ for it, which is about 20-25euros, but according to me it was totally worth it. I often use this when I'm not in the mood or don't have time to put on regular eyeshadow and honestly, with a bit of inner corner lighting - this looks just as good!!
The goods: easy in usage, no creasing, nice glowing colour, decent ingredients
The bads: price?!, less noticeable on darker skin tones
Becca also offers this product in other colours and I might purchase a few of them in the future. I don't mind the price tag, you get a good amount of product for it in return and a little goes a long way, I've been using mine for months and it's still quite full. I just wish they a counter in my country. A very nice product, that I recommend to try and buy...
The main ingredient of this spray is alcohol denatol?! Which makes it impossible to use as a body spray, technically not but no sane person would spray alcohol on themselves? It will only harm your skin. Now, I can gladly say that Avon is changing the name of these body sprays to Linnen spray, a much better purpose. I mainly use this spray as a room refresher or on my pillow or on my clothes. The spray itself distributes enough product.
When spraying it, you're first aware of the alcohol - very strong - and then it fades leaving you with a sweet scent that is adorable. It's not too strong, but present enough. If you feel like perfumes are too heavy for you, these sprays are a good and light alternative. I mostly smell the guava in it and not too much of the strawberries, but most sweet-scent-lovers will like this one as much as I do.
- Chanel Vitalumière in Limpide-
I have this one in Clair 20, the lightest shade available in Europe but in other continents they offer another shade lighter. Clair is good for summer but too dark in winter. This is a really good foundation for dry skin, a review is coming soon.
The product is white, creamy and quite thick. It has no smell (no fragrance) and feels very soothing on your skin. It removes make-up easily, without irritating. However if you are wearing a lot of make-up I would recommend cleansing 2 times to get it thouroughly done. After cleansing my skin feels refreshed. I like that it doesn't leave my skin feeling overly cleansed or tight. So far I'm a fan of this product and this is defintely my next-cleanser-to-purchase, curious to how it turns out in the long run...
Available in pharmacies and drugstores: 200ml for 12euros, 400ml for 14euros.
Honestly, I bought it because it was low priced and I'm always in for budget items... I paid 2euros for it and got the scent "cucumber & melon", another scent "lavender" is also available, a scent I totally dislike but my mum for instance loves it. The scent is a bit vegetable-like and fresh at the same time, I feel quite "green" while using it. It glides on easily, doesn't irritate and works a bit moisturizing. I can't really comment on how well it works on the sweating part, since it's winter but I'm guessing it will be average - as usual. I didn't notice any stains on my clothes, so another plus. Tiny downside was opening the product for the first time: the top was also wrapped with plastic and I couldn't get it open, luckily after some severe trying my boyfriend managed to open it - you know he would never let it pass that he could NOT open a beauty product. I'd never imagined I would ask him to open one for me...
The goods: fresh scent, low price, non-irritating, no stains
The bads: opening it :)
I will enjoy using this roll-on as I like the scent of it. I hardly ever repurchase a deodorant because there are so many out there and I like to switch since I only use about 3 roll-ons a year. But if you're looking for a cheap and decent one, this deserves a shot...
A day cream, ordered from Strawberrynet which took 2 months to get here but thanks to a good customer service it finally arrived. This one has a high SPF of 20 and the ingredients to prove this claim. It contains a lot of antioxidants and is said to be good for dry skin, very curious!
Only skin care this time, I just tend to run out of my skin care faster than my make-up. But don't worry, I'm already lemming on some new things!
A Dior exclusive innovation: a revolutionary oblique brush. The incredibly soft elastomer brush features slanted bristles to capture each lash one by one. Enriched with a unique lifting formula, Diorshow Iconic sculpts, stretches and curls the lashes with extreme hold and high definition.
The brush is indeed quite innovative and has many bristles that are close to each other, yet still seperated. When taking the brush out, there aren't any chunks on it and it's ready to use...
The packaging is a pink tube - I like pink - and looks very neat. The ingredients look ok, although it contains paraben on the lower part of the list. When opening the top, you immediately smell the sweet scent of this scrub, due to the berry in it. I enjoy this scent, but for some it may be a bit too much... The scrub is a very light pink with dark spickles in it, probably from the berry, to make it scrubable. It's a crème says the tube and this is really true: the product is thick and creamy. It states that you should use it on wet skin, but I found this didn't work that well - it glid on my skin without actually scrubbing it. When using it on dry skin however, it scrubs easily and leaves your skin very soft. Afterwards you can just wash it off.
The goods: sweet scent, good price
The bads: easily tired of scent, not the best scrub
Overall, I'm finishing this product and it's not bad but it's not that good either. It's quite annoying that it doesn't work well on wet skin. I like to use my scrubs while I'm in bath and not before hopping into it. I liked the scent in the beginning but lately I've grown a bit tired of it, maybe it's a bit too much for me as well. An ok product but not that special after all... Etos, you can do better!!
