Review : Organic BB cream So Bio Etic

So Bio Etic is a french brand specialising in organic cosmetics at reasonable prices. This is the first and only BB cream I’ve tried so far, so I can’t say wether it qualifies as a BB cream or as a foundation. It does feel comfortable on the skin and has some medium coverage, which is… Continue reading Review : Organic BB cream So Bio Etic

Review : Sleek flick it eyeliner

I decided to try this pen style liquid liner by Sleek. I found it on the spanish beauty heaven Maquillalia. I’m very disappointed by this liner, as it was utterly dry when I opened it. Now as a makeup artist, I went for the trick with those pens. They always have double-pointed applicators, so I… Continue reading Review : Sleek flick it eyeliner

Review : Real Technique foundation brush

As everyone praises Sam Chapman’s brushes, I thought I would give them a try. First impression : 8 euros for a foundation brush is quite cheap. And it’s supposed to be cruelty free, since made with synthetic hair. But it’s made in China. I’m not sure about China and cruelty-free getting along that well, but… Continue reading Review : Real Technique foundation brush

Review/Swatches : Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick

I saw these Max Factor jumbo lip pencils in one of Lisa Elridge’s video, and I wanted to try them. They turned out to be quite good indeed : long lasting,  comfortable, fragrance free and the colors are lovely. And not too pricey, which is always good. Simple design, black jumbo pencils with name of… Continue reading Review/Swatches : Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick
