Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40

This is a long overdue review of the Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation, which I promised to pop up couple of months back. But hey, better late than never right? When I look back at 2017, and count the days I have been wearing makeup, this is likely my most used foundation, despite of its poor package. Well, the package, let’s start from that. The foundation is housed in a weighty glass bottle, and the product is distributed via a pipette, which is not…

A Good, Old Cult Beauty Haul

Very few things in my book that beats a good, old beauty haul. The excitement of trying out new beauty products is up there with finishing up one. The other day, I saw this on someone’s instagram feed: “my hobbies include buying makeup and also thinking about the next time I will be able to buy makeup”.

But this time, not just one liquid eyeliner, it’s two: the EM…

EM Cosmetics Infinite Lip Cloud Review

When Michelle Phan re-launched her makeup brand EM Cosmetics – this time, it’s her independent brand, not part of the L’Oreal group anyway, she started with a very small collection: a liquid eyeliner (well technically two, one brush tip and one felt tip), and a line of liquid lipsticks. I got my hands on both, and I like them both. But if I had to pick one, I would say the liquid lipstick is total winner. The package of the liquid lipstick is quite up…
