EYE PRIMER comparison

Let’s talk about three eye primers I’ve been using during the last year.

  1. Rugiada per Makeup by NeveCosmetics
  2. I ❤ Stage by Essence
  3. “Lemon Drop” Shadow Insurance by Too Faced

1- Rugiada per Makeup

This is a jelly natural primer.

Here are the ingredients:

PROS: As it’s composed by natural ingredients, it doesn’t irritate the eyes. When dryed, I can’t feel anything on my eyelid. It’s Vegan.

CONS: Duration is not very long. This base works well only with mineral/powder eyeshadows. Beware of creamy pencils or eyeshadows on it!

2- I LOVE ❤ STAGE

This is a creamy base, the applicator is like the traditional lipgloss one.

Is not all natural, but it’s not “BLEAH!!” at all. 😀

PROS: Duration is better than Rugiada(but on my oily eyelid is not working at it’s best). I’ve used it tons of times and seems to be still new! The price is very low 😉 It’s good also as brow color base.

CONS: It goes into the crease and vanish a little when my face is warmer than usual.

3- Lemon Drop

Lemon Drop contains a lot of stuff not so healthy for our eyes (read SILICONS) but if you use it sometimes, when you really need something strong, it would not leave any bad effect. (It always depends if you’re more or less sensitive skin person! )

PROS: The Lenght is faaaantaholic. No creasing, no “blowing in the wind”, no fading away even if you’re in the middle of a metal concert!! Optimal for eyebrows! It erases dyscromia on the eyelid.

CONS: it’s silicone based, you’d better not use it in everyday makeup 😉

Hope this was helpful for you. If you have any questions abou those products, just ask!

DEBORAH Milano – SHINE TECH Nail Polish!

Hi everybody!

During the last three weeks, I tried this metallic-brilliant-fast drying Nail polish by DEBORAH, an Italian brand, from the latest collection wich has come out on December 2012.

Shine Tech n° 87 "Silver" - By Deborah

Shine Tech n° 87 “Silver” – By Deborah

It promises to dry fast and give your nails a sparkling and metallic look.

I’ve found it very easy to apply and remove it with a normal nail polish remover (I’ve used one by Essence), and, above all, I’ve loved it so much!

It really gives metallic silver-like look to your nails, as you can see in the upper photo, and it’s great also on short nails like mine!

😉

Have you ever tried some nail polish from this Collection or this brand?

First revieeeeew: LOVEA Masque Visage Purifiant

Hiii there!!!

Today I’m gonna write about this Organic product by Lovea, a French brand.

Lovea Mask pink clay

This Purifying face mask is made with pink clay (rich in trace elements and puryfies sensitive skins

without irritating it), it’s indicated for sensitive and delicate skin.

This mask promises to purify, nourish and even out your skin.

You have to apply it (avoiding the around eyes area) and leave it work for 5 minutes. Then you can

rinse  your face with water (possibly not cold) and apply your moisture treatement.

I tried twice and I’ ve found that’s really smoothing my skin (even though I don’t have particular skin

problems). My face was less “winter-cold-sad day” and more “oh, there’s a bit of sun there!”.  🙂

This is an interesting product for:

1- it’s not expensive!  3,99 €/75ml

2- it’s made with organic and natural ingredients:

IMG_3312

INCI: Kaolin (used to draw out impurities and toxins and thereby clears the skin of excess oil, dirt, pollutions and other waste materials, stimulates the organic processes in the skin, and acts as a remineralizer of the skin much like thermal mud),Aqua, Illite (Illite refers to a group of clay sized micas that have a higher lattice water content and lowerpotassium content than mica, it’s absorbent), Glycerin (Humectant, it draws water into the outer layer of skin), Butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter*, Betaine (humectant, skin conditioning, viscosity controlling), Cetearyl glucoside (emulsifying, formed by the condensation of cetearyl alcohol (fatty acid) with glucose. Can be naturally derived -from coconut/corn oil- or chemically synthesized.), Cetearyl alcohol (emollient, emulsifying, opacifying),  Aloe barbadensis leaf juice powder*, Caprylyl/capryl glucoside (solubilizing non-ionic surfactant, obtained from renewable raw materials as fatty alcohols and glucose from vegetable origin), Glyceryl caprylate  (fatting, wetting, moisturizing, and co-emulsifying. It is very skinfriendly. Effective for the biological stabilization against yeast and bacterias), Polyepsilon-lysine (hair and skin conditioning, natural origin), Benzyl alcohol  (preservative, fragrance ingredient, also used to dissolve other ingredients to make a smooth formula or solution. It’s often replaced by synthetic version in the laboratory by mixing benzyl chloride with sodium hydroxide that’s very irritating especially for infants), Dehydroacetic acid (preservative, it stops the reproduction and growth of bacteria and fungi. Can be toxic if used in high concentration), Sodium usnate  (antimicrobial, active agent vegetable derived -Lichen).
