Reviews ~ Finished Products February 2014

'As always February is one of the months wich fly by so easy. Like I always do, I finished another bunch of products again. Let's take a look.'

'For the most part I finished a bunch of Lipsticks, but I start of with my standard nailpolish remover from Dutch Drugstore Etos. For only €0,99 is it my favorite remover. It don't leave white rims on my cuticles, and it removes my polish good.
Then I finished two Pink Tease Lipsticks for also €0,99 a piece. I use those lippies to death, and you can read <here>  why.
The third lipstick is an old one by Catrice in Gentle Beige. I have no idea what I paid for it, and these lipsticks are discontinued.
For the first time I finished also an eyeshadow by ELF. I got it once for €1, and I'm not really fond of it. The profuct easily creases on my eyelids, even with an good primer. Also if you blended it as good as possible, it doesn't stay that long. I heard ELF updated their package, it seems I have an really old version here.
Last but not least, I finished a Essence Dry Drops for quik drying my nailpolishes. I really liked this stuff, however, I found a way cheaper alternative <here>. I paid for 8ml €1,99.'

Reviews ~ Pretty Perfect Nail Drying Spray (Big Bazar)

'A little while ago, I found a very cheap Nail Drying Spray by Pretty Perfect at the Big Bazar for only €1,50. Here are my thoughts.'

'For the test, I used a nailpolish from Wynie, cause sometimes, Wynie Nailpolishes will dry slow, or when you put on a little too much, you can test this quik dryspray perfectly. The package says that after spraying, the polish should be dry in 60 seconds.'

'I painted on two coats, and sprayed it from a small distance. The product feels a bit cold on my hands, and it smells very girly. After spraying, and when the polish dried, it seems I painted an Scented Polish on, but it's an regular polish off course. After 60 seconds, the polish is only touch dry, and I recommend to wait about 15 minutes longer.'

'So, be careful after 60 seconds, cause if you bump against something, your mani will be destroyed by a hole or scratch. Especially when you use two coats. This polish is one of the harder to dry ones, so maybe it shouldn't be that bad with other brands. Just be sure, wait a few minutes longer, like I said earlier.'

'Overall, I think this isn't a bad product. I think this drying spray always comes in handy. Unless you can't stand the scent of very girly perfumes, but the scent isn't that heavy. I didn't need to open a window afterwards.'

'I painted my nails the other day with a Saffron Nailpolish, but this brand isn't touch dry after 15 minutes spraying this product. Now, Saffron is a hard to dry brand to me, maybe it will work for you and is it just the reaction with my nails. I didn't make a picture, because the result was too bad. So you need to figure out by wich brands it will work. The package says "for most types Nailvarnish", and they're right. It doesn't work with every nailpolish brand so far.'
The product won't work properly with these Nailpolishes by Saffron... 
I used for the Saffron test #54 a minty green

'I bought this teapot set at the Dutch Big Bazar. I'm very happy with it, and I don't regret it so far.'
Attempted to fix the picture... I failed, but thats not the point... look at my Teapot set :P

Purchases ~ On My Nails: Max&More Nailpolish in Mauve (Action)

'This time on my nails, another cheap nailpolish by Max& More. This brand you will find at the Dutch Action for only €0,49. The brand did change a bit in package, wich is good, but there's one thing: they don't print the color name at the bottom of the bottle anymore. So you need to cut the name from the blister and stick it on the glass yourself, like I did here. However, I love this Mauve color, and for 50 cents you can't really beat it. I did two coats here, and the drytime is pretty standard. If you're on a budget, and you're looking for a color you can wear to work, this one will do it.'

Reviews ~ Coconut Care Hand&Nail Cream (Action)

'A while back I purchased at the Dutch Action a Coconut Care Hand&Nail Cream for only 0,79. Now it's time to share you my thoughts about this product.'

'I am truly surprised by this product. It smells really good, especially when you like/ love coconut. It's not overpowering or something. The consistency is very creamy, and will soak into your skin beautifully. The only thing you need to be aware of is the tube, wich contains a huge hole. This tube reminds me a bit of the toothpaste tubes. So if you squeeze a little bit too much out the first time, your hands should feel a bit sticky, but if you use a small amount, everything is fine. Not too sticky then. However, I think this isn't a perfect product to travel with, if you look at the package. So I prefer to use this product at home, and then at night before I go to bed. Overall, not a bad product for such a cheap hand cream.'

Collections ~ Lipstick Collection 2013/2014

'I know, I skipped last years Lipstick Collection... so I squeeze 2013 and 2014's Lipstick Collection together. I changed some things again.'

'First I did another clean up for my NYX Round Lipsticks. I thought how many browns I had, so I gave a few browns away. Still 8 of them left, and still not using them as much as I want. The reason for that is the fact that they're too creamy for me. The consistency gives me the feeling that the colours will slip off my lips easily. So I try to use them more often in the winter.'

'I also used loads of my Catrice Collection up. I only have a few with the black package left, cause I like those better then the ones with the silver package. I have use also loads of Catrice old line, I now have only two colours left. The Limited Editions I used with care, cause you know, they are limited edition. Good look-a-likes are hard to find.'

'For my Barry M, Sleek and MUA didn't change a lot. I try to use these brand more often as well, but again carefully cause these brands aren't easy to find here in Holland. I need to purchase them online, and I don't have that option at the moment.'

'I expanded my Essence collection a bit. I find Essence lipsticks not that attractive in the past, but since they sell matte colours I'm in love.'

'I added two new lipsticks to my Yves Rocher Collection. I used up one of my LE Cream lipsticks in Rose, and as you can tell, still using that color. I also finished 3 lipsticks with the blue caps.'

'I gave away a few Baolishi lipsticks, and kept my LA Girl Cream lipsticks.'

'I also found two Maybelinne Lipsticks, along with my Rimmel Kate Lipstick, and also pretty new: my Oriflame Colour Drop Lipstick with his funky shape.'

'And lastly my latest addiction, these lipsticks by Pink Tease. As you can tell, a few of them I used to dead, and some of them I don't have for a long time yet. These are so affordable. The red one I didn't try on yet.'

'Brands you're not find back, but where mentioned in my collection of 2012 are: Max (Action, the package breaks easily, so I gave them away), NYC (the scent was spoiling).'

'See my Lipstick Collection for 2012 <here>. I also made a Lipstick Collection Video <click>.'

Purchases ~ February Nail Finds : Remover, Quik Dry Spray and Fizz Nailpolish (Etos, Big Bazar and Action)

'I'm always on the hunt for good nailproducts. This time I found a few new products and also an golden oldie, so let's dive into this.'

'First I picked up my favorite cheap Nailpolish Remover from Dutch drugstore Etos for only €1. I repurchased this product all the time.
The other nail product I found at the Big Bazar for €1,50, and it's the Nail Drying Spray from Pretty Perfect. I plan to do an review on this as well, so stay tuned for that.'

'Next I bounced across these cute Nailpolish Party Girl Set by Fizz. I found these at the Action for €1,39, and I made a few swatches. I do like the colors so far, but I think you need at least two coats, cause they could be a bit strikey. Drytime is okay, but I need to see how these polished will do on my nails, so I can't tell anything about the time they should last on my nails, or if they stain my nails. That sort of things. So I will do a review in depth soon.'
