Unscented.

I am hypersensitive when it comes to fragrances, so it is my number one criteria when it comes to cosmetics and skincare products.

I bought my first Rouge G (Gisela), after ages of longing for it and believing it would be my HG. I am so disappointed! I love the colour, but the transfers is over average. And what is even worse is that it dries […]

Mine was a pink drugstore lipstick and then a transparent lip gloss with mint smell. And a small cosmetics bag to wear them with me wherever I go.

sheer lipstick and tinted moisturizer/ CC

In my case, searching for a HG is my main driver for trying new products! Once I find a HG for some type of product, I stick to it, or just try more shades.

I have strong yellow undertones too, but no orange, and I cannot find the right shade of foundation. What works for me well are some CCs, e.g. MAC prep-prime CC in yellow – I can use it on its own instead of a […]

skintone: very light olive (neutral to cool, green undertone)

most flattering: olives, plums, brick red, jewells, any muted colours

least flattering: mustard yellow, peaches, corals, any brights other than […]

Long-lasting non-drying formulas.

Sheer lipsticks.

Olives, plums, brick reds.

The same criteria as Christine, but I prefer sheer/ low pigmented blushes, because I have really fair skin and moderate or highly pigmented blushes are difficult for me to work with if I am not going to carnival.

In the bathroom. I love that it has a lot of natural light. Also, I like applying makeup with my fingers, and I tend to wash my hands a few times through the makeup application, so any place other than bathroom is […]

I love it too, thanks Christine!

“Sort out why you are frowning so much and reduce it.

Perhaps it is just a bad habit, perhaps you should see your eye doctor, or try to change something in your life to feel like frowning less often. You can […]

I like their packaging and design, the clasic glamour of it. My favourite Chanel product is the lipliner.

I do not like that everything is so heavily scented, which si the main reason why I neither try much […]

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 […]

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 […]

Foundations

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.

very fair, olive undertones
MAC 239
usually BB on the whole face (currently I love TheBalm shelter) + RCMA full coverage foundation around eyes and wherever needed
Yves Rocher lip balm Repair

Max Factor Masterpiece mascara.
LĀ“oreal Caresse Lipstains.

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