Aneta commented on the post, Rant & Rave: MAC Cosmetics 2 weeks, 3 days ago

Rant: the smell of most of their products, especially foundations. The dryness of many lipsticks and stickiness of many glosses. The horrible light in the shops. The incompetence of some of their MUAs. And, most […]

Aneta commented on the post, How did you find your foundation shade? 3 weeks, 1 day ago

I quite believe that I know pretty well what shade I need, but it so difficult to find it! Sometimes I think the shade is completely ignored by producers, while I know I am not the only one who seeks it: the more […]

1. pale with olive undertones
2. I do not like layering lip products on top of each other, as it makes them transfer even more. I keep drinking water every couple of minutes and the tranfers are killing me.
3. […]

Hi Nina,
It seems like we might have a similar type of skin. A couple of months ago I discovered Avene Hydrance Optimale Riche cream (in Europe it is sold in pharmacies), and it changed it for me after two weeks […]

peaches and corals. They can look so great on others but clash with my pale olive skin and grey eyes.

Max Factor Masterpiece mascara.
L´oreal Caresse Lipstains.

Both can compete with high end products, in my view.

Aneta commented on the post, What beauty brand has surprised you the most (in a good way)? 2 months, 3 weeks ago

RCMA!
This year I discovered some brands for professional make-up, including RCMA. I am not a MUA, but I have very sensitive skin and react badly to fragrances in commercial cosmetics. The RCMA foundation and […]

Aneta commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Under Eye Concealer 4 months, 1 week ago

I have tried so many concealers and correctors, including BB, MAC or YSL, but I could not make them work without creasing.

To my huge surprise, what works much better for me, is using MAC paint pot instead. I […]

Aneta commented on the post, What beauty product do you own but can’t figure out how to use? 7 months, 2 weeks ago

I am also light yellow/ green and as for oranges, I find “burnt orange” shades most flattering on me. You can try for example L´Oreal Shine Caresse in 501 Bonnie to see whether you like the shade on you (looks […]

Aneta commented on the post, What question would you like to see asked here? 8 months, 1 week ago

How full would your ideal cosmetics shelves be, on the scale between „just HG minimalism“ to „as many products as it gets“?

If you could have 3 wishes towards cosmetics producers, to solve your long-term […]

Aneta commented on the post, What color eyeshadow do you reach for most often? 10 months, 2 weeks ago

Olives.

I have very pale yet olive skintone, so olives look very neutral on me (I believe that more neutral than beiges or browns). I love olive shades on their own, e.g. for business look, or I combine them […]

Aneta commented on the post, What color lipstick do you reach for most often? 10 months, 2 weeks ago

Plums.

Even when I think I am finally picking a different colour in a store: pink, red, mauve, berry or nude…. As soon as I have a look at the name of the shade, I often find out I have reached for something […]
