As I published last week, when I went to Sephora, I did some skincare shopping, but not only, some makeup items came along too. This makeup shopping haul includes some best sellers that I wanted to try for a while and finally got the chance to. Did I like the famous Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and Lip Injection Maximum Plump? Check the pictures to find out more and read the review about the other products such as Dior Addict Lip Maximizer, Natasha Denona Face Glow Foundation and another foundation that I got from the pharmacy, Vichy Liftactiv Flexiteint.
For beauty shopping, there is nothing like Sephora. Unfortunately, in UK, we are deprived from Sephora stores, so once you get the chance to go to one, it’s really hard to resist temptation. In this skincare shopping haul, I have tried products from Ole Henriksen, Dr. Jart+, Erborian, Isle of Paradise and Guerlain. Discover the details of each product that altogether create a glowing, radiant and plumped skin.
Anti-age skincare is most likely to has a rich consistency to target dry skin due to lack of elasticity and lost of natural collagen. It can be quite difficult to find anti-age skincare for acne skin, something light that won’t cause acne skin to become more oily and reactive, but it will still repair wrinkles and prevent future lines. I was advised by a pharmacist if I wanted to target fine lines and mild acne, I should then try the range Age-Purify from Filorga, La Roche Posay Anti-Imperfections SPF and Bioderma Atoderm SOS spray. I have used them all for two months. Are they worth it or not?
If you haven’t heard before about Mellow Cosmetics, prepare to fall in love for this makeup brand. It’s an Australian brand that has expanded internationally and it’s cruelty free, vegan and paraben free. I have tried their high quality pigmented lipsticks and if you would like to try them, there is a discount available, right at the end of this article.
Most makeup products for oily skin promise to make wonders, but eventually, you either end up with your face too cakey with so much powder to control that excess of oil that always finds a way to show up in the least desired situations or having your skin breaking out from so much makeup that doesn’t allow your skin to breathe. I have tried an infinity of makeup products to keep my oily skin under control, although only a few really do the job, without creating an overly matte effect. These are the makeup “treasures” for oily skin that I found that are effective and prevent my skin from breaking out.
Science has evolved so much over the last decades, especially in the beauty department. Now we can fight against ageing on skin like never before due to the several procedures available in the market. Botox and dermal fillers are just some of the examples of what you can access to look younger. Once I reached 36 years old, I knew I wanted to take advantage of it and I did. It’s been now 2 years since then and this is my testimony. Does it compensate, is it worth it, did I start at the right age, does it hurt? There is so many questions until your first facial rejuvenation procedure. I hope my testimony will clear up all of your doubts, in case you still wondering if it’s for you or not.

Perfumes as much as clothes can represent our personality or mood, though perfumes are more powerful because they tattoo our skin with a signature scent that leaves a trail, which people around us will remember us for.
