Review | Makeup Geek Blushes:

On the Makeup Geek website they claim that these blushes are easy to blend and give a natural radiance. They also guarantee a creamy, smooth consistency that glides onto cheeks.

First of all I’m sure that everyone has heard of, and gotten a few of these blushes, and if you haven’t already, I would highly recommend that you get some.

These are true to their claims, and they’re half the price (at least) of high-end blushes. And to be honest, I like these more than MAC-blushes, the only downside is that MAC has a bigger shade-selection.

 (They also last a long time on the cheeks, and they don’t fade patchy.)

However, the blushes I have are very pigmented so I would recommend that you use a light hand with these, cause you can put on too much, but since a little goes a long way, these lasts forever!

These are aslo cruelty-free, paraben-free and made in the USA.

I got mine from Makeupgeek.com for 9.99$ (for the single pans. The compacts are 12.99$).

Review | Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask:

On the Origins website it says that nature’s complexion clean-up crew clears the way for skin to act its best. Bamboo Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins, Lecithin dissolves impurities. Skin looks clear, feels perfectly pure.

I’ve heard so many good things about this mask, but honestly I’m not that impressed.
I mean, this is a nice product and my skin does look good after I rinse this off, but I kind of expected this to be, at least somewhat oil-controlling since it says that it’s best for oily skin, but I don’t think it’s oil-controlling at all. And to me that’s kind of a letdown.
However, this doesn’t feel harsh or drying, and it does a good job of deep cleaning my pores, so I do like it for that reason, but I think that this might work better for combination skin rather than oily.

I got mine from Kicks for 250nok.

Review | MAC Pro Longwear Foundation:

20151027_155504_HDR

This claims to be a comfortable, long-wearing foundation that gives medium coverage with a natural matte finish and up to 15 hours of wear in any environmental condition. Lightweight and creamy, it applies and blends easily leaving the skin feeling soft and free to breathe all day while controlling oil. Specially treated micronized pigments help give a smoother, more flawless, natural matte finish with stay-true colour.

Now, when I first got this I was kind of scared to try it, because I’ve heard so many times that MAC foundations, most of the time, break people out, but I needed a mattifying foundation that would last all day, so I bit the bullet and I love this so so much.
This doesn’t break me out, or irritate my skin at all, and it does keep me from getting super oily.
However, some of my oils does show through after a few hours of wear, but not in a bad way.
So I’m not sure that I would say that this is a matt/oil controlling foundation, because on me it’s more of a demi-matt finish/kind of dewy, but still not in a bad way, and I don’t really have to touch up throughout the day.
But regardless of my oily skin, this foundation stays the same all day, it doesn’t fade on me at all, and it doesn’t get cakey.
You can also build up the coverage where you need that.

With that said, I don’t know if this would work as good for dry skin, but it claims to be for all skin types, so you could go to your MAC counter and get a sample if you’re not completly sure.

This is available in 23 shades and I got mine from Kicks for 280nok.

Review | Labratories Filorga Optim-Eyes:

On the Filorga website it says that it’s a unique complex reduces dark circles by promoting the elimination of pigmented residues.
Powerful active ingredients boost the venous and lymphatic circulation to reduce swelling in the lower eyelid.
Hyaluronic acid + NCTF®.
A trio of draining active ingredients smoothes the eye contour for a fresher appearance.

Usage test (54 woman, daily use):
70% smoother eye contour, 63% anti-dark circle action, 61% anti-puffiness action.

I’ve been using this eyecream for ages now, and I never know how I feel about this.
I haven’t  seen any major difference in my dark circles when I use this, but my dark circles gets worse when I use other eyecreams, so it’s kinda confusing.
But I do like it at the same time.
So the reason I like this is because this is one of the only eyecreams I’ve tried that redusces puffiness, and ‘helps’ with my dark circles at the same time.
It feels really nice and cooling when you apply it, and it is hydrating.
With that said it does not reduce the apperance of wrinkles and fine lines, at least not for me, but I don’t have that many lines anyway.

I would recommend this if you have the extra money to spend on eyecream, but if you don’t suffer from alot of puffiness and really bad dark circles, I think you could find a more affordable option.

I got mine from Kicks for 425nok.
