Make Up For Ever SEN'S EYES Waterproof Sensitive Eye Cleanser review

Posted by A small Cat at 12:00 15 comments

Hi beauty lovers!!

I often wear a lot of eye makeup, and I can't remove this and all stubborn make-up with one wipe, no way!! It happens that I give up use waterproof mascara only because I know how hard it will be to clean and how much it will irritate my eyes.

I got this Sen'sEyes as a 2x 25ml samples from Sephora. Make Up Forever claims it instantly removes impurities and even waterproof makeup on the most sensitive eyes.I was really excited to try it because I figured I found a product that won't burn my eyes -I have to say I was so wrong!
 And not only did it  burn and sting extremely bad, and it's so thick lotion-like in consistency that it takes forever just to get in onto a cotton round (good to see the full size comes with a pump!)  
I couldn't believe how badly it stung my eyes and didn't do such a bang up job of removing all of my WP mascara either !! It seemed to smear it all over my eye area instead of picking it up onto the cotton pad like other make-up removers I've tried.

I love the idea of this product, but sadly it really just didn't work out for me.
If you're looking for a great waterproof eye make-up remover that doesn't sting your eyes, try  SEPHORA Waterproof  ( review here )  best I've ever tried ! 

What's your favourite eye makeup remover?

ArtDeco eyeshadow base review

Posted by A small Cat at 13:36 15 comments

 ARTDECO is unique, and much more than just a makeup collection...

Germany's number one cosmetics brand, ARTDECO is a high quality, comprehensive line of cosmetics that let you achieve a beautifully flawless look, everyday :)
This is my first ever product form this brand and I have to admit I am impressed!!
It has been introduced and given to me by my ''fairy in law '' after she raved about how great it is! :)
This cream product comes in a cute little black plastic pot. It  has a neutral colour with a slight iridescence that once applied to the lid goes transparent even though swatched it has a bit of a pearl finish .It has a discrete floral scent, that quickly disappears :)
Trust me I don't ever wear eyeshadow without first applying base! It makes all the difference in the world in the way your eyeshadow will look and behave.
ArtDeco base is very easy to apply, I use the concealer brush(Sephora 46) to first apply it from the pot, but then I also use my fingers to spread it more evenly,it has deliciously creamy texture making it a dream to work with.
It makes eyeshadow pigmentation very intense, it really brings out the colour, which means that you have to use less eyeshadow than before - this is already fantastic and what's most important it lasts all day long with no creasing at all !!!
This base not only is absolutely amazing but is also contains Bisabolol which neutralizes the colour of the eyelid and Vitamin E to nourish and protect the sensitive skin.

Artdeco Eyeshadow Base is definitely worth a try :)
Really great product - especially for the price!
I highly recommend it!! :)

Benefit Benetint Cheek And Lip Tint review

Posted by A small Cat at 17:04 12 comments

...it’s innocent yet provocative...

Intense pink roses in a liquid for people who like to look good without feeling that they have "something" on their face ideal for  "make up - no make up look."
It reminds a little of blush that once has been released in a limited edition by Lancome but it was quickly sold out.

I will call it an upgraded cosmetic of our grandmothers - beet juice, but in the great modern version ;)
The smell of this reminds me of when I was a little girl and would grab roses from the garden and leave the petals in water to create my own perfume. It smell identical!
As a blush, Benetint is quite nice. It really lasts well on the cheeks. The consistency is extremely watery, and you do need to work quickly to blend it in as it dries fast, but I don't find this to be much of an inconvenience or problem. It dries rather matte, no shimmer or sheen really. Because of the watery consistency, it feels very light on the skin.
The key to this product is finding a good application routine. Benefit recommends applying three dabs to your cheeks and rubbing it in, but this can look spotty if you aren't quick enough.  I have found the best method, to use a dark-bristled flat foundation brush, run the benetint brush and wand over the last 3-5 cm of the foundation brush and then swirl on the apples of your cheeks and afterward lightly dab the brush up your cheekbones. This makes it mess free, precise and well-blended. No stained fingers and no spots!
 On the lips, it gives you that just bitten look that most lip tints can't pull off as naturally as Benetint.
The staying power on both lips and cheeks is excellent. You can eat, drink and do whatever you want, it will last the whole day. Of course, it will fade a little after 8 hours but it doesn't fade enough to make you look dulI...It works really well when you exfoliate your lips first and moisturise them before and after application as the tint is a little bit drying but then again, most tints are :)
Overall I do like it ,but not love it :)
All Benefit fans should try this. If you're unsure, go in store and ask for a sample.
The key here I guess, is try before you buy :)

Clothing haul

Posted by A small Cat at 09:30 15 comments

Hi Lovelies!!

I am so happy that we have so much sun lately here in UK .Finally I can hide all long sleeves ,woolly jumpers, scarfs and jacket deep in my wardrobe !! Yay !!
At the beginning of July I am going away to Mallorca on a long awaited hot summer holiday and I thought It is about time to start getting ready. I am definitely last minute person, and most times I either forget to buy something or got something spontaneous that usually end up not being used at all, so this year I've decided to actually do it a  month ahead, with clear mind and plenty of time to pick the right clothes.
Being lucky I find myself surrounded by sales, price reduction and buy 1 get one free offers, I didn't end up getting too much though, as I still have some time till my summer vacation, and buying gradually is better than all at once for sure :)
I decided to take the leap and do my first clothing haul post :)
I hope you will enjoy it  :) Let me know what you think :)

I got this gorgeous dress from Primark for a bargain price of £5 :)  

Stripe Boobtube Bandeau Strapless Top Primark £3

Primark heeled sandals  £12

Gharani Strok London TK Maxx £12
Zebra segment necklace Primark £3
