Max Factor Radiant Lift foundation

Drugstore foundations is a category of makeup I love trying out. Often they are not only as good as high end brands, but they can even be better and at a more affordable price point. For instance while I love the YSL All Hours foundation, the very similar L’Oreal Infallible Fresh Wear is as good…

Max Factor Healthy Skin Harmony foundation

A recent but not a new foundation: that is the Max Factor Healthy Skin Harmony foundation. A foundation that I haven’t heard much about. No buzz, no nothing, but I knew the minute I spotted this in stores that I wanted to try this. Why? Because this is the European version of the much talked…

Max Factor Cappuccino Nudes eyeshadow palette

Max Factor, Cover Girl, so confusing when a brand operates under two different names in different countries! In any case, they have come out with three different neutral eyeshadow palettes and I decided to pick up one. This one is Cappuccino Nudes which is more cool toned (wait, cool toned shadows in the drugstore I…

Max Factor Excess Shimmer eyeshadow

A staple product in my spring/ summer make up look is cream shadow. Whether it is in a stick or in a pot: cream shadows are easy to quickly slap on, they usually stay on very well and they make a great base for layering other shadows on top. But come spring/ summer I love…

5x summer polish faves

Summer is a great time for wearing nail polish. It’s a perfect time to do away with glittery top coats (although I like wearing those year round), and go with bright or pastel creamy colors. For summer, I like to go for extremes: the boldest blues, the brightest reds, but also some muted colors that…

Video: Collective shopping haul

I thought I’d try something different again and instead of bringing you a haul post in pictures, it’s now in video. And you can watch it in HD. Only thing is that for some reason my upload got scrunched and I don’t know why. It will probably be some setting I used when publishing the…

Make up collection: lipgloss

Despite being sick I’ve decided to take a few pictures of my lipglosses. I actually wanted to do this in a video and swatch a few on my hand (my favorites), but I will do that during my vacation when I’ve got more time and am looking and feeling better again. The first three pictures…

Review: Max Factor Masterpiece Waterproof Mascara

The final mascara in the series that I have been testing is Max Factor Masterpiece Waterproof mascara. This is Max Factor’s staple mascara and was highly recommended by the sales lady at my local drug store. Here’s what Max Factor claims: Masterpiece Waterproof Mascara finally can define and separate your lashes to give a striking,…

What’s the Best Mascara?

When it comes to beauty products, the most impossible thing to find is a good mascara. I’ve been using the same one for a year now, but it is so expensive. I’ve never really tried any of the drug store ones and I keep hearing that they are good. Since I don’t have the faintest…
