Favorites of the month : July !

I don't buy LE items so the products I am reviewing are all easy to find (no treasure hunt !)

Lipstick : Rimmel Vintage pink. I don't like the packaging (too tacky for me) but I like the color. First, when you look at it , it screams BORING. It's just a dusty pink....But it became my purse-lipstick because it goes with everything. I now that it 's not as neutral as all the beige lipsticks that are supposed to be considered as wearable (like Creme D'nude from MAC or GOSH darling and so on...) but it's MY neutral lipstick. I find it very flattering, it has a good staying power and it's not drying. It's quite cheap so what's a girl got to do ??? Resist ??? Nan !

Primer : Monistat chafing gel which is called Soothing care in Canada. I barely used it in winter under my foundation because I didn't find it was really useful to add a new layer of product on my face. But this summer is so hot, that I tried it just under my loose powder (no liquid foundation for me when even the road melt in my street !). I am SOLD ! it kept the powder in place all day long at a BBQ party I went on Sunday. I even tried it all alone and it made my skin look fantastic...

Eye cream : Marcelle New Age anti wrinkle + firming eye and lip contour cream. Yes, I know speaking of wrinkles in a blog world full of beauty and make up is not really glamorous but...if you don't want your eye make up to look like crap, you need a good base, no ? I never really believed in the miracles all eye creams are supposed to do : erase wrinkles, prevent discoloration of the eyelid skin, destroy under eye black circles and so on....But again, the result speak for itself : my eye area looks brighten, it's more "plumped" than a month ago. So I am not saying my wrinkles disappeared but they are less obvious. So it's good enough for me. Plus the pump is really useful to prevent loss of product (it delivers the perfect amount). And, as I am a germ freak, I find it really clean. Last thing : it seems to last for ever (told you this pump was a marvel !!!)

Body Cream : the Quench line from Olay. Recommended by dulcecandy so I bought it, tried it and loved it. I gives a nice sheen to your skin and it solves the "crocodile" skin. LOVE IT !

Annabelle Zebra bronzer : a must have for fair ladies. you can really build the color and you don't look like "hou I am pale but I used a bronzer to look like J-LO"effect. I used it every single day since I received it and I am sure I 'll keep it for a contour color in winter. a keeper ...

Wipes : Neutrogena Deep clean wipes. Recommended by Lollipop26 so I bought it, tried it and loved it (haven't you heard that before, I am such a sheep in beauty "hauls" beheheheeeeee). 1 wipe is enough for the whole face and it works really well in taking out all your make up when you are in a hurry.

Hope you liked the reviews, have a nice day !

  1. Thanks for sharing Caro. The Neutrogena Deep Clean wipes sound promising!

  2. Vintage Pink is my Go To lipstick :) I am so happy to see someone else who loves it as much as I do :)

  3. Annabelle Zebra bronzer = LOVE!!

  4. I heard lollipop26 talking about the Neutrogena wipes as well. It's great that they're so affordable and I can imagine it'd be great to take while travelling or for those late late nights when washing your face is the last thing you feel like doing ;) I'll pick some up in the next sale....I quite like neutrogena face cleansers so far.
    Seriously!? The road on your street melted?! LOL
    The first time I heard of Monistat being used as face primer I had to re-read the thing like three times. I've seen a ton of good reviews on it so I'll have to keep that in mind when I finish my MAC skin primer - which works okay....
    Thanks for sharing Caro :)
