Products I use to beat the dry winter weather


If you are a regular reader here, you must all know my love for summer and my loath for winter, I complained several times about this terrible cold weather here and if I had my way, I would move to an exotic place that has 365 days of summer.  Winter and me do not fare so well and we will not be friends ever. 

Essence - new products



If you have been following me on instagram you would have notice that I did a little haul on Saturday and I visited a new beauty store that sells products from Essence.  I didn't need anything in particular, I only wanted to try two shades from their matt matt matt collection (02 perfect match and 03 wow effect) but these were not available and I purchased some other lovely goodies from their new collection.

Empties - Cleansers


After two weeks, 25 cups of coffee and 3425259 photos, I finally managed to finish this post. I wrote it two weeks ago and had it ready, but taking photos of these products was such a pain. Cloudy days are a nightmare. I took the first bunch of photos on a Saturday, the second the next day, then I had to do it all over again in the next weekend since the first two bunches were horrible.

Am I the only one that gets excited when it's the end of the month, which means only one thing: payday! And that means I can browse into my favourite websites and finally order all these products and makeup I have been saving in my basket throughout the month! Am I the only one? I don't think so. We all love makeup and we get excited when new products are launched, and I personally love trying new skincare products and face masks.

Essence The False Lashes Mascara - Dramatic Volume Unlimited


On the search to find the perfect drugstore mascara, I probably tried over 25 mascaras but I haven't found the one yet. Essence is well known for their great formulas in mascaras and I also tried many from Essence, some great and some not, some giving volume and not length and some giving length without the volume or curling effect. My favourite ever is the Essence Big Lashes Volume Boost mascara but I cannot find it anymore in stores, so maybe it's discontinued.
