Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express Mascara Review

Hey everyone,
This mascara I have been using for a while now and is probably nearing the end of its use. There are some good sides and some bad sides to this product. The pros are: nice color, nice length, okish volume, and its not too expensive. The cons are: dries quickly so its hard to layer, needs more than one layer (probably 2 or 3), and it can start clumping after a few layers. Oh and it doesn't actually look like you have false lashes so don't expect that.
Other than that, I am quite happy with this mascara overall.
I would recommend it for everyday use.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Review

Hey everyone,
Today I wanted to post a review on my favorite lipstick. The color is Monte Carlo and I chose that color because it looks pretty natural on me. When I wear it during the day I just kind of dab it on so that the color isn't too intense. If I want to wear it at night I apply it as you would normally apply it. I just love the color and how smooth it looks. It also stays on pretty well and doesn't smear at all. The packaging is really nice as is the case with all Chanel products, there's even a Chanel logo on the inside of the cap. :) It also hydrates the lips and gives it a nice shine without overdoing it.

I give the lipstick a 5/5 :)

Dior Creme de Rose Review

Hey everyone,
Last week I posted about a makeup haul and one of the products that I bought was a Dior Creme de Rose lip balm. I've used it a few times and I love it. :) I expected the lip balm to be pink because the other reviews that I read it was pink, but mine was yellowish in color. I really love the smell of it; just like roses :)
It moisturizes my lips well and if it plumps mine up I cant really tell because mine are already kind of plump. From what I've heard, it does that job pretty well. My lips also feel healthier and smoother, which I love because its getting closer to winter here and usually my lips dry out really fast.
Overall I love it :) 5/5

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Review

Hey everyone,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof. I have the color Ebene, which is a shade of black. It isn't the darkest black that you can get, but I have light skin color so a very dark black won't look too good for everyday purposes. I really love this product. One reason is that it glides on very easily and its already the right darkness so I don't have to go over it multiple times. I have also been in the rain with it and it didn't budge at all. One end of the eyeliner has a sharpener, which I find very useful!
Another plus point is that it doesn''t smudge or anything during the day; it stays exactly where I want it. Removing it is very easy, provided that you use waterproof makeup remover. Even though its quite expensive, its definitely worth it!

Overall I love it and have no complaints :)
My rating 5/5

UV Essentiel

Hey everyone!
I would like to talk about the daily sunscreen I use for my face. It is UV Essentiel from the PrĂ©cision Chanel line. When I bought it I first thought that it was overpriced for 30 ml, but after a few uses I realized that you only need a tiny amount for your whole face. Honestly I love this product. When I first put it on my face looks a little whiter than normal, but this goes away pretty fast. I also feel that my makeup stays on better and that my skin is much softer and clearer since I started using this product. I was also very happy that it doesn’t make my skin oily at all, but it does feel as if it is moisturized. :)
I must tell you that ever since I bought it I put it on every day, with very few exceptions, but that’s mainly because 90% wrinkles come from the sun!

Overall I am very happy with this product. The only con I can think of is that it isn't waterproof.
So I give it a 4.5/5 as its rating. :)

Went to the make up store again!

Hey everyone,
I found out yesterday that my friend has a birthday party next week so I decided to buy her a nice lip balm. I thought it was just too cute so I bought one for myself too ;) I also decided to buy my mom a present, the Dior Capture XP Creme Haute Correction Rides (not too sure if I remember correctly), hopefully she'll like it. Below is the picture of the creme de rose. I'm not putting a picture of my moms present online because it's gift wrapped so you cant see it.
I will post a review of the lip balm after I've used it a few times.

Makeup Shopping

Hey everyone,
Today I went to Douglas (which is a store in the Netherlands where I buy my beauty products) and I bought new makeup. I thought that I should share some pictures of what I got. Let me know what you think ;)

With these two items I got two freebies (who doesn't love freebies!?) which are:

Sorry that the last picture is yellowish. I took the picture when it was dark outside so I had to turn the light on.
