I can no longer deny it! I knew from the moment Urban Decay announced the launch of new Vice Lipsticks & Glide On Lip Pencils that they were going to be my downfall. I mean who can resist to 100 shades of Vice Lipstick?! It’s well known that I’m not a huge fan of lipsticks and lip glosses are usually my favorite lip products but let’s face it…I’m talking about six different finishes and colors that start from nudes and soft pinks, continuing with the classic shades of reds and burgundy, and finishing with edgy plum, violet, blue and even black. It’s really impossible to say you can’t find a favorite.

I have to admit I own MUA Pro-Base Fixing Mist for over an year now but for some unknown reason I never got to review it until now. I bought this product along with other MUA makeup products for eyes, cheeks and lips and I’ve been using it a couple of times ever since. I can’t say it’s my go to fixing mist but I do use it usually when I do a MUA makeup inspired look.
Now at Superdrug and online @muastore.co.uk , @superdrug.com
Makeup Academy Pro-Base Fixing Mist (£5.00 for 60 ml) represents the final step of any long lasting makeup and is used to fix your makeup in place all day long. It protects against heat, humidity, cold and windy conditions and makes your makeup last longer. Continue Reading
I’ve been using both Model In a Bottle and MAC Fix + sprays for a long time and now I’m able to tell the difference between the two of them. MAC Fix + Spray was my go to spray and I’ve been using it for years and even though I’ve tried some other face sprays this one was still my favorite.
A few months ago I had the possibility to test the new Model In a Bottle Sensitive Skin Formula (review + photos) thanks to Beauty Stop Online which is an online beauty shop offering the best professional beauty products in the industry at some of the lowest prices available. You can buy products usually with $5 – 10 less than other shops. In this case the sensitive formula costs $14.99 while on the official website is $21.00.

Since I’ve taken makeup seriously, many many years ago, a makeup setting spray was a must for me. I tested quite a few products but I was always curious to try Model In a Bottle. I read so many amazing reviews about their original formula and I was even more curious to test it after they released Model In a Bottle Sensitive Skin Formula which I thought then and I’m convinced now that it works perfectly on my skin. Before testing this product which I received from Beauty Stop Online (provides the best professional beauty products in the industry at some of the lowest prices available) I was using the famous MAC Fix + so now I’m able to compare the two of them and tell you the differences. The normal price of Model In a Bottle Original or Sensitive Formula is somewhere between $18 – 21 but Beauty Stop Online has this amazing price of $14.99 for the Sensitive formula and $15.00 for the original one.
Model In A Bottle Skin Sensitive is designed for women with dry, sensitive skin or with rosecea and allergies, and is specially formulated with hydro essential oils of lavender and aloe vera. With this innovative product you can now lock in that perfect make-up look, for long-lasting, touch-up free results. This on-of-a kind, innovative setting spray dries with a unique matte finish, and provides a protective barrier that resists smudging, tears, humidity and water, without clogging your pores.
Model In a Bottle Sensitive Skin Formula ($14.99 for 60 ml/ 2 fl oz) is a make up setting spray with a matte finish that I apply after I finished doing my makeup. Because it has a sensitive formula and it’s fragrance free is great for my very sensitive skin type but if you are not in my situation you can definitely choose the original formula. It makes my makeup stay in place for the entire day and it gives my skin a matte finish and a smoother appearance. Except from having a sensitive skin I also “benefit” from a combination complexion and Model In a Bottle helps keep oils from my face from ruining my makeup and doesn’t clog my pores.

A while ago I received a few products from Beauty Stop Online that I want to show you today. I was really curious to try Model in a Bottle because I read so many great reviews about this product and since is not available in my country it was a great opportunity to test it so this was the product I was most interesting in receiving. I also got two China Glaze nail polishes from previous collections and just my kind of shades, pink and purple.
I saw that many of the products available on Beauty Stop Online (Fb page) can be purchased at some amazing prices and they usually have great offers. So I received Model In A Bottle Sensitive Skin Formula ($14.99 for 60 ml/ 2 fl oz) just the right makeup setting spray for my sensitive skin and China Glaze nail polishes ($4.99 for 14 ml/ .5 fl oz) in Shocking Pink and Spontaneous.

A couple a weeks ago I receive as a gift the Herbalife Radiant C Face Quencher, an instant refreshing mist for my skin. During the summer time I always keep in my purse a face refreshing spray but since I received the Herbalife spray I take it with me everywhere.
This refreshing face spray contains Vitamin C and gives your skin a rejuvenating burst in just a few seconds. It can be used for both men and women and especially for those with dry skin.
In the summer I bet this will be a great friend providing dry, water-starved skin with a cool burst of vitamin C. As you can see from the photo it comes in a 50 ml transparent bottle provided with a pump. It’s easy to use and practical because it won’t take to much space in your purse.
Whenever I feel tired I just spray it over my face and my tired-looking skin is instantly refreshed, hydrated and moisturized. Continue Reading
