Review: Essence


I read a view reviews on Essence makeup so since my 6 month mascara time had run out and I had to buy new ones I decided to try:

multi action mascara

What a great buy! I was so impressed by this mascara.

It spreads evenly between all the lashes, parts them and leaves no clots or thickness.

It really looks natural, like you woke up with a gorgeous lashes.

I also could not resist this colour lipgloss:

stay with me longlasting lipgloss

I bought the Candy color (third from left).

The color is vibrant and it stains your lips so after the gloss is gone it still looks pretty.

I am so going to continue buying this brand.


Btw it is very affordable just go have a look at Clicks


January Glambox review


So I received my Glambox and I decided to do a product review. Just a little something new to liven up the blog:)

So I was extremely impressed with the package presentation. It felt like I was opening a present.

I was very exited to try the products, so here we go!

My experience:

Parisiene by Yves Saint Laurent

It smells divine! I am not an expert in Perfume so let’s not get carried away with what it smells like.

I suggest you go smell it yourself.

I received a 1.5 ml sample and really fell in love with the smell.

But I was very disappointing by the fact that the perfume only lasted about 30 min after I put it on.

Anew Clinical Eye Lift pro by Avon

My very first eye-cream, and I was not disappointed.

And it was a full-sized product!

I can unfortunately not say that I can see a difference, but it is a very user-friendly product and I can feel a difference in the skin around my eyes.

You have a gel and cream that you apply to various areas around the eye and it feels wonderful.

A winner in my book.

Elancyl Toning Foaming Scrub

Firstly I would like to just say that :

  1. I tend to have a very sensitive skin.
  2. I do use scrubs very often so my skin is used to it
  3. This was my experience , yours may very well be different

After I used a bit of this product while showering (30ml sample was received) I loved the smell and texture.

Unfortunately not long after using it I developed a very bad rash on my chest.

So I am a bit apprehensive about this product, I do suggest that if you are interested in it consider getting a sample first.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Plump effect Perfect Ultra lift & Firm Moisture Cream SPF 30

I experienced it as very oily on my skin. I have a very dry skin so products  usually do not have this effect.

I feel that this product should be used by woman with more mature skins.

I want to ask my mother to give it a try so I’ll get back to you on this one.

Like Silk Eye Makeup Remover

I used makeup remover once in my life, it was a horrible experience!

My eyes burned from it and my skin felt dried out. Thus I never bought any . I use my face wash to remove makeup.

Considering that the next morning I look like a raccoon.

So this was a scary try for me, but you know what!

It is true to its name. It did not burn, and my skin felt lovely afterwards.

I would really suggest you try it.

So that ladies ( and gents) was my January Glambox review.

I do hope you enjoyed it.

Till the next box arrives!

Lime Crime, Carousels and china dolls


I usually don’t promote products, but I honestly fell in love with this brand.

Since they are based in LA and I am in S.A. the rates are a bit high for me to be able to order,  but none the less their products had me wanting more.

Just have a look:

These colors are so pretty!

Just imagine how fun these would look.

And my most favorite since I am more of a lip-gloss girl:

What I wouldn’t give to have all of you!

And look at this –

How cool!

So I think it is über obvious I heart these colors and everything about this brand.

Anyone going over to LA some time soon???

So number one on my wishlist.
