Review: Neutrogena Shine Control Makeip


Hi beauties! My first purchase from US drugstore was Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup (30 ml) and I got it in shade 10 Classic Ivory


Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup comes in a glass bottle and unfortunately it comes with out a pump. It means you have to pour it out on to your hand. Its messy to use and you waste a lot of product. Plus you get bacteria all over it :( These are the things I don't like about this product.


Lets now talk about the things I do like about this foundation. The first thing is that its a perfect match for me, which is a huge deal for me. I hardly ever find foundations which match me. Second thing I like is that it has SPF 20 in it. I like having bit of protection from the sun. 

It feel light weight on skin and blends in easily. It gave me a medium coverage and I like that the formula of the foundation is not too runny. It didn't get cakey on me, but I did needed to reapply it through out the day. Even though it claimed to have 8 hour shine control. On my oily skin it didn't work though. I got a half a day of wear out of it and then I needed to do touch ups. 

It has a scent to it and its quite strong, if you smell it from the bottle. It hasn't made me breakout.


Even though its a mess to use it and I do get shiny through out the day with it, I still like it. It feel so light on skin like I don't have anything on and the color of it matches me perfectly.


Have you tried any Neutrogena foundations?

Review: Milani Illuminating Face Powder


Hi loves! I have tried before only one product from Milani and I loved it, so when I was in US I picked up more of their products to try. Today I'm sharing with you 2 of their Illuminating Face Powders. I have them in shade 03 Beauty's Touch and 02 Hermosa Rose (10 g).


These beauties come in clear compact and you can see the beautiful design on top of the product. It has rose shaped mosaic design on it, which looks gorgeous <3 <3 The packaging feels firm and luxurious. 

Top to bottom: 03 Beauty's Touch, 02 hermosa Rose

Both powders are very light, but you can build up the color. They are illuminating and give a gorgeous glow to the cheeks. I have used them on their own and with other cheek products. There is no scent to the product and they haven't caused me to breakout.

  • 02 Hermosa Rose - looks in the compact nude and not something special, but it gives the most beautiful glow to the cheeks and warms up the complexion.
  • 03 beauty's Touch - is more pink and I use it has a blush. Its illuminating, but not over powering. Gives a lovely glow to the cheeks.
I'm so happy I picked up these beauties :) Milani makes gorgeous products and I wish I could find them here.

Review: L'Oreal L'Extraordinaire Color Riche liquid lipsticks


Hi beauties! When I was in San Francisco I picked up 2 new L'Oreal L'Extaordinaire Color Rich liquid lipsticks and they are in shade 403 Purple Prelude and 502 Plum Adagio (5.5 ml). I have reviewed 2 other shades before and if you are interested you can find the review here.


These have a different packaging :) They have animal print on them, which I love. That's what kind of made me pick them up. Also I like the colors :D


The formula of these feels the same as the other 2, I already own. Its very creamy and glide on well. As I have said before I love the applicator. I find it makes applying it much easier. 

The pigmentation is great and they didn't try out my lips. There is slight scent to them, but I can hardly smell it. They also stay on well through out eating and drinking.

  • 403 Purple Prelude - is pinkish plum color, which looks gorgeous on fall and its one of the reasons I picked it up :)



  • 502 Plum Adagio - is a darker plum shade, which makes a perfect lip color for colder months. I have only one problem with it and its that I have hard time getting even application. I'll keep trying, only because I like the formula of these lip products and of course the color is stunning.




Overall I'm happy I picked up 2 more shades from this line :) I see myself wear both colors a lot through out fall and winter. I only need to find away to apply Plum Adagio better. If you have any tips for me, do tell me in the comments below :)


Have you tried these L'Oreal liquid lipsticks already?

Review: Park Avenue Eye Shadow Quattro


Hi loves! I have had Park Avenue quad from the time I lived in Brussels and some reason I haven't reviewed it till now. I guess I got distracted with other things :D  I have it in shade 06 White and Pink (6.5 g).


Park Avenue shadows come in plastic compact, which has a clear lid, so you can see what you have. I like that they haven't wasted any space, so its easy to store in your makeup bag or collection :P 


The texture of these shadows are silky and the pigmentation is fantastic. They blend out like a dream and most important they didn't irritate my eyes. I find some affordable brand eye shadows irritate my eyes a lot, but not these ones. I'm not sure how much I exactly payed for these, but I remember that I payed around 5 EUR. So they are affordable and the quality is good. 

If you live in Belgium you can find their products in store called Di.

Their products are made in the EU and the brand is from Belgium. I haven't tried more of their makeup products, but I do own few of their nail polishes :) Next time I go to Belgium I'll be picking up other products from the brand!

Review: MAC Electric Cool Eye Shadow


Hi loves! When I was in the US I picked up one of the MAC Electric Cool eye shadows and I loved it and ended up getting 2 more. I have them in shade Blacklit, Highly Charged and Switch To Blue (2.1 g, 19 EUR).


L to R: Switch To Blue, Highly Charged, Blacklit

These shadows are from MAC A Novel Romance collection. The texture of these is so creamy and it feel bit bouncy, if you know what I mean. The pigmentation is great as you can see from the swatches.

I like to use them as base for a eye look and use my fingers to blend them out. They stayed on very well through out the day and I didn't experience any creasing with them. Also they don't have any scent.

  • Blacklit - is the one i got when I was in the US. Its black creamy shadow with lot of sparkle to it. It would look gorgeous when you do a smokey eye with it.
  • Highly Charged - is gorgeous purple shade with shimmer in it. Its very alive shade.
  • Switch To Blue - is lovely blue with shimmer to it <3

I'm so happy with these shadows and I'm thinking of picking up other shades :D I know I don't need them, but I love the formula of them. All together there is 7 shades available. If you are interested in any of the shades I shared with you guys you can find them here.


Have you picked up anything from MAC A Novel Romance collection?


Thanks for reading! :)
