Reviews ~ Finished Products January 2014

'The first month from 2014 is a fact, what means: time for another Finished Products Post. I finished a few big products this time. Shall we?'

'First finished thing on the list, is a showergel from Yves Rocher from their Monoï De Tahiti line. I'm not sure how much I paid for it, should be no more then €2, and I love this showergel. It smells so exotic. Lovely.
Next up is an Etos handcream. Etos is an Dutch Drugstore, and I paid around €2 for this cream. I find this cream one of my favorite cheap creams.
I also finished an Dutch Drugstore Kruidvat Body Butter in Coconut and Sheabutter. I won this past year, and I bought this earlier by myself for €2,50. I think the Superdrug one is way better, cause this one is a little stiff in texture. The Superdrug one is way more creamy.'

'The a free sample of the Kneipp showergel, wich I reviewed <here>.
I also finished a few lipproducts, wich are the Catrice Lipstick in Maroon 20. I'm not sure if this shade is still available for €3,99, but I think I like Ginger And Fred better nowadays. For a full look on these lipsticks, please click <here>.
Also finished this Nivea Wonderbalm gloss in a berry color. Bought it a while back at the Action for €1,29, but it's too shiny to me. It's moisturizing, that was a plus. I swear the tube is finished. On the photo it looks not, but I don't get more out.
Lastly a free sample of Yves Rocher's Anti Age Global Serum, wich worked fine to me.'

Reviews ~ Pink Tease Lipsticks In Depth (Big Bazar)

'A while back, I purchased one lipstick from budget brand Pink Tease, wich are available at the Big Bazar for only 0,99. Time to give you a review in depth about these lipsticks, cause I purchased a few more. I also back upped a colour at this point by accident, and I totally don't mind.'
The other batch, with a different package

'What I love about these lipsticks is the fact that they don't have an annoying scent. Actually they don't smell at all. Also, the stainpower and colour pay off are incredible. It takes me a good 3 hours before the colours are fading on me, and for just one euro, you can't complain. The package is cheap looking, but it's sturdy. I kept a few colours in my purse, and they didn't crack or break into there, so that's defenately a plus. Another good thing is the fact that you don't feel them on the lips, even when you smeared a big layer on.'
Dry lips here, trust me this color looks better with smooth lips
Sometimes you need to layer them up... this one I used for the 1st time

'The coverage of these lipsticks are pretty good. There's only one little complain about the lipstick. If you have pretty dry lips, the product has the incline to set into the lines of your lips. If you have well moisturized lips, there's nothing to complain about the consistency. '
Incredible soft and pigmented one
Rich pigmentation

'I think this product is an good bargain. You can try several colours, and if the colour is a miss, there's not much lost. I only think the fact that the lipsticks don't carry names or numbers is a little bit odd, but the most annoying part is that I have lipsticks out of 2 different batches. So the brand deals with batchnumbers, wich could be confusing if you're searching for the same colour again. Another strange thing is that the package did change a little between batches, but the quality is the same. Overall I think these lipsticks aren't that bad. Specially for the price.'

Wishlists ~ BH Cosmetics

'I have a few shopping ideas for the brand BH Cosmetics. The only down thing are the shippingcosts: To Holland you pay quikly a $15,95 for only shipping the parcel. But their products are looking great. Do you agree?'

'First, a few eyeshadowpalettes wich caught my eyes. Look at the prices, they are awesome.'You can also costumize your own palette, like I also did. My customized palette will cost $14,55. Amazing... now I really wish that the shipping wasn't that expensive...'

'Next up Nailpolish sets! Omfgh... My first name is Saskia, and some people are calling me Sas. So, I was really surprised that one of their purple polishes is called Sass... how cool is that.... The other cool thing, you can buy these in sets of 10.... 10 awesome nailpolish colours for such an cool price...'

'I also found cream lipsticks for $3,50 each. The colours Tea Time, Forever Nude, and Pop Cultured are sounding really cool. And I read good reviews of them, so bring it on!'

Projects ~ Nailpolish Clean Out January 2014 : Regular Nailpolishes

'Also it's time to put on another Nailpolish Clean out, this time I will disguss a few regular nailpolishes, wich I don't use anymore, or just spoil too much. Here they are.'

'First two polishes I tossed out, are colours from Paris Memmories, a brand from, far as I know, Belgium. The stainpower is really crappy, you need at least 4-5 coats. I have these ones for ages, and I never reach for them. Time to let them go.
Next are two old Rimmel ones. The chocolate one is allready seperating, so these are also ready for the garbage.
Lastly, this Safari one. I got this one not so long ago, and is with that the youngest I have to toss out. This polish thickened up so badly, it's not even funny, so byebye as well.'

'Then two very, very very ancient kind of Sally Hansen Bottles. I used these a lot, and I really liked these, but... it's time to go. Cause they really smell old.  Still no tears, Big Bazar is selling Sally Hansen sometimes...'

'Then I few very old Action Nailpolishes. The black one is dried up after all those years, the yellow one I reviewed <here>, and will be handed over to somebody else.'

'Lastly a couple of polishes I will also handing over to people on Facebook soon. If I don't giveaway every now and then polishes, I will drown into nailpolish, lol. The brands are KOH, Rimmel and John F. Gee.'
