• Finished in March

Hey dollies!
March is almost over and I thought I'd share with you 4 products I used up during this month and my personal opinion about them. Do I recommend them? Do I plan on buying them again? If you are curious then scroll down! :)
Essence Stay all day long-lasting make up in 20 soft nude (Link)
I bought this foundation about a year ago and I love it! It's a medium coverage foundation with a dewy/natural finish. I like that the colour has pink undertones so it brightens up the face. It covers the imperfections but it's not heavy and it definitely doesn't look like a mask. I also like the smell, floral and fresh. It reminds me of Bourjois healthy mix foundation although I can't say if it's a dupe. I used it during last year's spring, they I got a little tan so I used other products during summer. I started using it again in the autumn and I've been using it till now. I was amazed at how much it lasted me a foundation that costs about 4€! I've tried a couple more Essence foundations but I don't think they last for so long. Another thing I loved is the packaging, it comes with a pump, very hygienic and easy to use. All in all, I loved it, I recommend it and I will buy it again.

E.l.f. Clarifying Pressed Powder in Rosy Beige (Link)
This is another good and very affordable product. I use it with a powder brush and I really like that it gives a little coverage while removing the oiliness. You can use it with the sponge it comes with but it is a little powdery that way. Moreover the sponge won't fit in the powder unless you use up half of the product first. Another con is that it doesn't have a mirror so although it's compact I don't carry it in my purse for touch-ups. But apart from these, the product itself is great. I do recommend it, it only costs 1.70€ so you won't waste your money in case you don't like it. Although I like it, I'm not sure if I'll buy it again soon because I want to try the E.L.F. Studio powder. If you have tried both of them, leave me a comment on which one do you prefer.

Garnier Essentials Eye Make-up Remover
When I bought this one I wanted to buy the Clean Sensitive one, you know how much I love the Garnier Clean Sensitive line! But it wasn't available and I needed a non-oily eye make up remover so I got this one. I'm really happy with it. It doesn't irritate my eyes and it removes all my non-waterproof eye make up. Smells natural and fresh. I do recommend it and I will buy it again in the future. Not now because during summer I use more waterproof make up products so this remover won't be useful.

Oriflame HairX Daily Care leave-in conditioner for normal hair (Link)
This is the second bottle I use up and I kind of like it. It dries up quickly without making my hair heavy. It moisturises though. I use it after washing my hair and before I comb though and dry it. It helps a little with tangled hair and it makes it a softer. I'm not sure if I recommend it, I mean it does a good job but maybe there are better products in the market. I won't buy it again soon because I've already got two other leave-in conditioner sprays to try out. :)

I try to resist buying new beauty products and use up the ones I already have. I plan to clean up and re-organize my make up and nail collection soon, would you like me to do make up collection and nail collection posts? Not to brag about the things I have of course, just to show you the products I own so that you can ask me questions or request a review or something.

Enjoy the sunny weather, lovelies!


  1. i love your mini reviews! i actually prefer cleanser to make up removers but im thinking of trying the garnier one :) xx

  2. You know what, seeing that Elf powder all used up and its metal pan in full view was so... inspiring in a way! Kinda made me want to use up some of my stash... Don't you find it somewhat "rewarding" when the metal pan is revealed on compact powder products?

  3. @fashion written with a lipstick: thanks doll! Kisses!!

    @Evi: haha, I know what you mean!! I'm so happy when I hit pan that people around me think I'm crazy. Can't blame them lol!!

  4. To make up της essence θέλω να το δοκιμάσω αλλά δυστυχώς η απόχρωση μου δεν ήταν διαθέσιμη όταν πήγα να το πάρω, ελπίζω την επόμενη φορά...

  5. I share the same feeling as Evi and you! Might give the essence foundation a go and yes please do the collection posts :) xx

  6. Yaaaaay for using up products!! Doesn't it feel great?? I recently bought that Essence foundation, but I haven't used it yet lol! I love the packaging too :) x

  7. @Despina: έχω παρατηρήσει κι εγώ ότι τελειώνουν γρήγορα, συνήθως υπάρχουν μόνο τα testers! Με τέτοια τιμή μάλλον είναι λογικό :)

    @Lara: :D Will do, thanks a lot doll!

    @Stavroula: you did? Tell me the truth, you bought the whole Essence stand, didn't you? :D xx

  8. το μεικ απ της essence το πηρα και εγω.Η αποχρωση 10 μου εκατσε καλα.απιστευτη τιμη για ενα τοσο μοσχομυριστο και αρκετα καλυπτικο μεικ απ.και συμφωνω η συσκευασια τελεια.


  9. Για κάποιο λόγο όταν βλέπω "finished this month" posts νιώθω χαρά... ίσως γιατί όταν έχω κάποιο προϊόν καιρ, το βαριέμαι κι ανυπομονώ να τελειώσω για να πάρω καινούριο... lol. Ωραίο θα ήταν πάντως το αρθράκι make up collection. xxx

  10. πολυ ωραιο post!!
    το make up της essence μετα απο τα πολυ καλα σου λογια για αυτο θα το δοκιμάσω σιγουρα (ήμουν ανάμεσα σ'αυτό και το soft touch mousse)

  11. @Rafalena: χαίρομαι που σου αρέσει, με εντυπωσίασε κι εμένα!

    @mariza: χιχι, το ίδιο κι εγώ! Κανένα πρόβλημα :) Πολλά φιλάκια!

    @Daphne: είναι τελείως διαφορετικά, το soft touch mousse είναι πιο καλυπτικό και καλύτερο για λιπαρά δέρματα. Αυτό είναι πιο ελαφρύ και έχει φυσικό αποτέλεσμα ενώ το άλλο είναι ματ. Για την τιμή τους είναι και τα δύο τέλεια!

  12. Πολύ ωραίο post!! Κι εγώ χαίρομαι όταν βλέπω να τελειώνει ένα προιόν και φαίνεται η συσκευασία απο κάτω...βέβαια σπάνια μου συμβαίνει αλλά αυτή η χαρά είναι ανεξήγητη τι να πω...lol!! Άσχετο να ρωτήσω και κάτι...τα Essence υπάρχουν σε όλα τα Hondos της Αθήνας? xx Menia

  13. @Stavroula: from the Essence stand you mean? Are you sure? lol! <3 u!

    @Menia: όπως το λες!! Όχι δυστυχώς, υπάρχουν στην Ερμού και στην Ομόνοια, αν θέλεις πάρε ένα τηλέφωνο να ρωτήσεις γιατί δεν ξέρω σε ποια άλλα υπάρχουν

  14. Yep hahahaha!!

    Menia yparxoun kai sto Xalandri sigoura!
