Product overview – 2012’s finest and shabbiest

As much as I love trying out all products, there are always those I can’t resist repurchasing and those a bit more on the ”meh” side, no matter the price or brand.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE:

YSL Touche Eclat

YSL Touche Eclat

A true beauty classic, worth mentioning every year! A few more shades came out recently 🙂

Dior 5 colour eyeshadow (fairy golds)

Dior 5 colour eyeshadow (fairy golds)

One of the best eyeshadows. A tad pricey, however lasts forever!

fiberceutic masque

fiberceutic masque

The only botox you need in your thirties is this one! No hair masque comes close to it. For best results, leave it overnight!

Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil A/O

Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil A/O

I believe this is not so new, but that doesn’t make it any less new to my skin – I have found this while on a shopping spree in Covent Garden in London last Christmas. What a find – worth every penny! This replaces all 745-or-so steps of removing make-up I was used to before – no more cotton pads, make-up removers, waterproof make-up removers, face washes and toners – this replaces them all in just one single step – apply, emulsify with water, rinse. Saves time and space!

Chanel RAV

THE matte lipstick. Check it out here.

Melvita Extraordinary Rose Water

Melvita Extraordinary Rose Water

The best serum I have tried so far – and such a big bottle it comes out as one of the cheapest too!

Last but not least:

Essence fix & matte

Essence fix & matte

No 1 when it comes to fixing powders. No make-up is complete without it. I’m a bit ashamed to admit I used to buy Chanel‘s and Dior’s fixing powders solely for the sake of the name, even though this one does a much better job. Seriously.

And now THE ”MEH” LIST:

MAC Modelette

MAC Modelette

It’s  just ok. Nothing more and nothing less (to view the post click here).

Chanel Glossimer Petit Peche

Not so impressed… To read my post on Glossimer click here.

John Frieda Colour Renew

Certainly not buying this one again! Why? Read here.

Loreal Nutri-gloss Crystal

Loreal Nutri-gloss Crystal

One more shampoo that I shall be staying away from. I’ve described it here.

Chanel Joues Contraste 15 Orchid Rose

Chanel Joues Contraste 15 Orchid Rose

I guess this blush just doesn’t suit me – it might be a completely different story on you…

What’s your fav/least favourite product this year? 🙂

  1. Touche eclat is a genius invention, however I did find that no.7 have a cool highlighter pen that isn’t too shabby for the money (i also used a £5 off voucher when buying it) if working on a budget 🙂
