I've been looking for a BB cream for so long but here in France it was almost impossible to find a BB cream for meduim to dark skin tone :'(. Most of the time this country tends to forget that dark skinned girls like make up too. But I changed my mind when I found this BB Cream by Maybelline. The price was very afforable around 9€.
There were 5 shades and I picked the darkest one :
I'm not smitten by this BB cream for some reasons : the coverage is very minimal, I'm aware that this is not a foundation but I can't notice a big difference after the application. The result is VERY natural, almost invisible. It doesn't really covers imperfections, and doesn't give any glow to the skin. It doesn't even last more than 3 hours, it made my skin looks greasy and oily which I HATE. This didn't work for me and I would neither recommend it because of the poor results. And as I picked the darkest shade, I'm not sure that this shade would work on someone tanner than I. I think drugstores BB creams for dark skins are not advanced yet unfortunatly. I'm not looking for another BB Cream, I think I'm pleased with my foundation. BB creams are not made for someone who is looking for coverage and a long lasting make up.
Have you ever tried this BB Cream ? Did you like it ?
I went to H&M and crushed on two things : First that lovely aztec print satchel bag. I absolutly love the mix of prints and leather, this is so trendy...as I love boho style, I thought this was made for ME !
And then I saw that lipstick near the checkout and loved the color. There were 3 different shades and I choose that one called "Pink Sea Shell"
The color is beautiful and nude, I love it. The price is affordable, 3€90. The packaging is quite cheap I admit it, I know H&M can do better than a simple cardboard package ! Anyway, I forgive them for the lovely price. The texture is between creamy and matte, not too shiny and not too matte. It doesn't dry your lips and moisturizes them. The color is nicely pigmented, I'm sure this can work on any skin tones ;).
I'm sure you all have heard about this product. It claims to give an eyebrow lifting effect, and it works perfectly as you can see. Plus it lasts all day. If you want to highlight your brows naturally, this you'll like this pencil for sure, it has no shimmers.The price is around 19€. But I think that you can get the EXACT same lifting effect with any concealer under the brow area, so I'm not sure about buying this again ...What do you think ?
I've been looking for a stippling brush for a while. I was about to buy a brush at my local Sephora or from Mac, but when I've found this one on ebay for less than 6$, I was like "Why not ?" and I received it last week. The quality is good and I love applying my foundation with it, it blends my foundation so well that I don't even need any make up sponge ! I guess for 6$, it's synthetic fibers, but it's really soft trust me ;). It has definatly became one of my beauty essential. You can get it there :http://cgi.ebay.fr/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160788150365&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
I've always had issues with my eyebrows. I've never known how to shape them correctly : as there are Thick, I've tried every shape of the world, I've never known which shape was the best for me. Plus, I had a very bad experience with eyebrow waxing institutes and threading, they tended to do my poor eyebrows very thin, which I HATE (on me). But now that I've discovered the Benefit Brow Bar, I have a new life. Benefit's girls do a very good job, I'm very impress by the quality of their work. The price here in Paris is 21€, which could be a little expensive BUT it's worthwhile : The beautician spends around 15-20 minutes on shaping your eyebrows. She cuts, waxes, tweezes, brushes, and even make up them. The best part is that she totally respects your natural shape ! And the result is just stunning and at the you're just like " Woow is-it me :O ?". But there is just on bad side : the following day, I had some little spots around my eyebrows, but it's just one day, so it's not big deal...if you have a party or something just avoid to wax them the day before. But otherwise if you have a Benefit Brow Bar near, GO GO !! I promise you won't be disappointed ;). What do you think ?
