Review: Maybelline Superstay Vinyl Ink - 15 Peachy

Maybelline Superstay Vinyl Inks aren't new product. They've been out for quite some time. I love their mattes, because they are super long lasting and I even use them on my clients when I do makeup. New Vinyl version got a lot of attention on social media as well and I had to try it. It's just as long lasting, but in a shiny finish that looks glossy and stays that way for a long time.

Review: CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Face Mask

CurrentBody has a huge selection of every possible beauty device you may ever need. They are based in UK, but ship pretty much everywhere. They specialize in at-home treatments from LED to microcurrent, laser and many more. The range of brands they offer is huge, some that are very well known to me are FOREO (I also have some devices from), NuFace and Dermaflash. 

CurrentBody also has its own brand of beauty devices and I was testing their LED Light Therapy Face Mask.

Lethal Cosmetics Eyeshadows - Limbo, Arcade, Parsec, Aurora

Lethal Cosmetics is an indie brand from Germany. They make vegan and cruelty-free makeup that is fun and a bit more colorful than the usual. I've heard of the brand many times since they launched in 2017, but never really gave it a try until recently. I've been trying to add some fun unconventional eyeshadows to my kit and their multichromes were the best I have seen.

Review: Yves Saint Laurent All Hours Luminous Matte Foundation - LW8

Whenever I was searching for a good foundation to add to my professional makeup kit, everyone kept talking about Yves Saint Laurent All Hours Luminous Matte foundation. I will admit, I only have one Yves Saint Laurent makeup product, so I didn't have much of a reference for the brand. But all the hype persuaded me to try it and I'm glad I did, because it's now my favorite foundation ever.

Review: Paese Daily Vibe Palette (01, 02) and Eyegasm Eyeliners and Mascara

Paese is Polish cosmetic brand that has been coming out with lots of natural vegan formulas. Their makeup now also contains skin care components, so it's that blend of makeup and nourishment that your skin will benefit from. 

Review: FOREO BEAR and Serum

I already tried FOREO UFO mini device and that one I really liked. It was my introduction to proper skin care devices. I've realized they give your home skin care routine a spa like experience and definitely help to keep your skin in even better shape. This time I was testing FOREO BEAR which is basically your at home facial fitness device with microcurrent.

Review: Elinor Summer In A Bottle Body Illuminator - 01 Beige and Sunray Bronzer - Espresso

Elinor is cosmetic brand by Karin Poravne and her partner Nik. She was Slovenian makeup artist that later established Elinor Cosmetics, opened her own beauty salon and is also distributer of two brands for lash lifting and brows. Elinor is based on natural ingredients that combine skin care with makeup. Elinor has expanded its makeup range a bit and I hear are planning to further expand it and they also have some nice body care products.

Review: Charlotte Tillbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder - 1 Fair

I've recently posted a review of Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks. I also bought Airbrush Flawless Finish powder in 1 Fair while I got the lipsticks, so I had a good time to test it out on me and my clients. I think this is definitely one of the better powders, especially for slightly drier and mature skin.

Review: Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks - Pillow Talk, Supermodel, Walk of No Shame

Charlotte Tilbury is a makeup brand created by makeup artist. Charlotte is a very well known makeup artist and her brand represents her and the kind of looks she likes to creates, which are very chic and flattering. It's sort of natural or classic colors that emphasize each eye color and shape. It's obviously a high end marked brand, but I've seen so much of her products being loved by other fellow makeup artists that I wanted to try it as well.

Review: Geek & Gorgeous 101 Stress Less Serum and A-Game5 Retinal Serum

Geek & Gorgeous is skin care brand that offers a lot of active ingredients without the necessary fragrances, dyes or drying alcohols. Creator of the brand was battling acne. I find this brand so interesting, because it has very affordable prices, yet offers really nice formulas with active ingredients that actually work. In skin care is not about fancy packaging and good smelly stuff anymore. Most of consumers are more and more informed on ingredients and are choosing based on that.
