Review: Max Factor – Coffee Toffee


Hi beauties! I have a lipstick to show you! This lipstick is from Max Factor. This is a brown lipstick. Between light and dark brown. A lovely colour, but I think it is not a colour that fits with my skin tone. It is a flesh brown colour.

The texture is good, but it won’t stay on the lips for hours. I think for at least two hours. Sometimes the lipstick will get aside the lips.



Review: Maybelline New York Big Eyes – Luminous Brown

This is the Maybelline New York Big Eyes – Luminous Brown. Brown and nude colours.

As you can see, the package is black with a transparant cover on the box. There are four colours: off white, nude brown, orange brown and dark brown.

I love those colours very much. It depends on the skin, but you can make wonderful creations with this eyeshadow palette. At my skin the eyeshadow won’t fall of the eyes that much while applying it on the eyes. So wonderful to have such an eyeshadow palette. I have also palettes where the eyeshadow fall off the eye when applying it. I hate that very much.

The texture is fine, not many fall offs and it is very gently while applying the eyeshadow. My favourite colour in this eyeshadow palette is the light nude brown. I use this when I am working for the local radio and television station.

I think I fall in love with this eye shadow.

I can highly recommend this eyeshadow palette!



Review: Maybelline New York SuperStay 14HR Lipstick – Infinitely Fuchsia


Sorry that I didn’t write a review in a very long time. The last one was the L’Oreal Paris False Lash Architect 4 Dimensions Effect Fibers – Black Lacquer. But I really had so many time, that I only or the most of the posts created Polyvore creations.


This beautiful pink lipstick from Maybelline New York is in the serie SuperStay 14HR Lipstick with the name Infinitely Fuchsia. I love this flash pink lipstick. This lipstick is really a beautiful summer colour.


The package is transparant with pink plastic around in it. So you can’t see the movement of the lipstick when you use it. The lipstick itself and that plastic round in it husk are really the same colour. Lovely to see that.


I love the lipsticks from Maybelline New York very much! This fuchsia lipstick feels soft and smoothly on the lips. In the beginning – when you apply it for the very first time – it will apply very rough. But the next time it is fine to work with. It is what you want and prefer to use!

This is what Maybelline New York says about this lipstick:

Super rich color with super staying power. In one amazing weightless formula.
No dragging. No drying. No letdowns at all.
In 20 longwearing shades.

Why You’ll Love It

14HR Lipstick with an ultra-lightweight formula:

  • Stays fresh, light, and oh so comfortable
  • Super rich color that lasts for 14 hours
  • In 20 long wearing shades



Indeed, the lipstick colour has so much power. Well, I am not really sure if it is not drying. My lips are very dry, but this lipstick is dry from itself. It is not sticky to my lips. If they promise that this lipstick will be not dry, then they failed. But I am not really sure, because I have very dry lips from myself. If they promise that this lipstick will be wet and not dry on the lips, then they made a good one for my lips. Not too dry, not too wet. And sticky at all!

They are true about the freshness, lightness and – indeed – very comfortable to wear on my lips. Even when my lips are (very) dry.

The lipstick last for a very long time, but I won’t say for 14 hours. Maybe ten hours. Very long too.

I love the structure very much!


For Best Results

Apply your lipcolor by starting in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip.

After all I am very happy with this lipstick and I can highly recommend this lipstick. They have also other lipstick colours in this serie!

Review: Catrice Limited Edition Check and Tweed Velvet Lip Colour – Mind The Red!


Mind The Red! is the name of this orange/brown coloured lipstick in the serie Velvet Lip Colour from the Limited Edition Check and Tweed by Catrice. I love the colour very much! When I applied the lipstick, I was very surprised by the quality they used for this lipstick. It was very easy to apply.


The lipstick comes in a thin round and very long small black package. I like this very much. Something different from Catrice. The texture is good. It will be on my lips for about two hours. What surprises me too was that this lipstick was still good on my lips after diner. Of course, it was off the lips, but I could see that it covered the lips still well.

DSC_2834 DSC_2836 DSC_2839

The coverage is good. It could be better. I don’t know what it is but with any lipstick I have there will be some lipstick above the lips on my skin – even with expensive brands. I hate that very much. But I can tell you that I like this lipstick very much! It is soft to apply and it feels soft. I don’t feel this lipstick very much.


I love the colour and when I watch this picture below even more, there is twist of red in it too. Lovely to see.  After all I am very happy with this lipstick, but I think there could be more slowness in it to apply. Not really smoothly to apply, but it is ok.


Max Factor Dusky Rose versus Max Factor English Rose

DSC_9624DSC_8754 DSC_8757 DSC_9628 DSC_8761 DSC_9632

I have two lipsticks from Max Factor for to compare. Max Factor Dusky Rose (black package) and Max Factor English Rose (golden package). Both are fine to work with and they both are pink. English Rose is more going to dark peach, but still it is pink. It is light pink. Dusky Rose is more dark pink. You can see it is a little bit more dark, but you can’t see hardly.

Max Factor Dusky Rose is more unwieldy to affix to the lips. And Max Factor English Rose is more lighter and looser to affix to the lips. I prefer to apply Dusky Rose, but I will like English Rose too! Dusky Rose is more thick to apply and English Rose is more light to apply. Both textures are fine to work with. I like to have the darker pink, but I won’t disclose the English Rose at all. I really like both!

English Rose doen’t cover the lips totally and Dusky Rose does. But that is with my lips. I think it will be differently with each other skin. No doubt that I am happy with both lipsticks.

I prefer to use Dusky Rose more than English Rose. Which lipstick do you prefer to use? Let me know in the comments.

Dusky Rose
English Rose

Review: L’Oreal Paris False Lash Telescopic Infinite Length Effect Fibers – Hypnotic Brown


My L’Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes So Couture is almost empty, so I had to buy a new one. I got a €5,00 discount voucher for getting a lipstick, foundation or mascara from Max Factor. So I wanted to try the new mascara from Max Factor: Excess Volume Extreme Impact Mascara. But when I got to the store I saw a campaign from L’Oreal Paris when you buy one mascara, you will get one for free! The mascara from Max Factor will be €19.99 and one mascara from L’Oreal Paris will be €16.99 and if you buy two from L’Oreal Paris it will be cheaper. Once I will try the new mascara from Max Factor.




For the first one my choice was L’Oreal Paris False Lash Telescopic Infinite Length Effect Fibers with the name Hypnotic Brown.

This is what the website says about this mascara (I have the Hypnotic Brown – but I may assume this understanding below will stands for the Hypnotic Brown as well):

Get a lengthening false lash effect with False Lash Telescopic mascara by L’Oréal Paris. The innovative lengthening fibre formula builds intensity. Lashes look elongated as if beyond their tips. The Telescopic brush stretches every lash for an intense look. It’s off the scale!

Is this a good brown mascara? Does it have more lengthening? Let’s find out!


The package is silver colouring with the form of a telescope. I love that very much. I think it is a very special package! The name is really big on the package, which is very good. Sometimes I am looking for the name on packages! I was looking for a black mascara, but I didn’t look well and when I got home I saw it was Hypnotic Brown. After all, I don’t mind, because I can try something else. Just an other colour. And as you may know, I love trying on new stuf.


When I had taken off the packaging and turned open the mascara, I saw that the mascara was brown and not black – as I expected! I have to be careful when I am in the shop… I always get jitters in my belly when opening the package. Just a bit feeling of love. Some exitement. Kind of being proud that I just bought this product. Do you have that too? Well, get back to the product.


The brush has small hard hairs. But during applying the mascara I noticed that it will bring me long lashes. Kind of chic. Beautiful! I like that very much. I was a little bit surprised by that. But when I applied the mascara, I saw that the mascara will be between black and brown on my lashes. This mascara is not waterproof.




After a rainy day I have noticed that I didn’t had so much fall out of the mascara (the last picture).

After all I am very happy with this beautiful brown mascara. I totally recommend this mascara for others to use!!!

Nails #19: Maybelline New York Color Show by Colorama – Downtown Red

This beautiful bordeaux red nail polish I like it very much. It is from Maybelline New York Color in the serie ‘Show by Colorama’, number 352 with the name Downtown Red. A lovely red colour. If I see the jar from outside than it is more light red, but on the nails it will be bordeaux red. And that is my colour!! I like that very much!!

DSC_1818 DSC_1821

The jar is very small. Very chic as well. The size of the bottle doesn’t matter to me. The husk is black and the name is in white. Not special, but it is chic, though.


The brush is between round and flat. It is good to work with. With this brush I have to apply the nail polish three times to get a good coverage. A little bit disappointed in that. But than it will stay on my nails for at least seven days.

Review: Essence night club glamour to go eyeshadow – already midnight

I am sorry I am too late with reviewing this eye shadow palette…

Essence Night Club Glamour To Go Eyeshadow – 04 Already Midnight is budget eye shadow. I can see and feel that it is a budget eye shadow. You have eight different eyeshadows in this palette. Very dark eyeshadows: dark grey, middle light grey, light grey, blue, dark blue and between blue and grey. I like it for going out. Is this eyeshadow palette a good budget eyeshadow palette for going out? Find out with me!

DSC_1728 DSC_1726

The colours are very nice to see. It will apply good on the eyes, but it also will be fast applied. So, be careful that you won’t get too much on the eyes…

DSC_1659 DSC_1664

Essence is a budget brand, so I didn’t expected much of this eye shadow palette! But it surprised me with how well it will blend together!

DSC_1662  DSC_1666

The brush is not my favourite, but I can work with it as well with the applicator.

After all I am happy with this budget eyeshadow.

I hope you like it very much!

Face of the Day – 26 August 2014

Today I had some thick eyes. I don’t how it came. I think it is my hay fever. But anyway this is my face of the day.

Second of all I have used the L’Oreal Paris mascara.




Then I used the Defining Blush Rosewood Forest from Catrice.

New York Color KissGloss City Sorbet versus Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss Bright Side Of Life

It is versus-time. Now I have New York Color KissGloss City Sorbet number 531 versus Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss Bright Side Of Life number 25.

As you can see, the New York Color KissGloss City Sorbet number 531 is in a tube. nice, but I don’t like the tube. It is not handy when you apply it, because you will get too much from the lipgloss on the lips. That is a waste! The texture is ok, but still too much.

DSC_9278 DSC_9275


The other lipgloss is Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss Bright Side Of Life number 25. This is in long standing bottle. I like this lipgloss much more! The texture is better, but not what I expect!




If I had to choose which one I want between those two, the I will go for the Essence lipgloss.
