• November: Ins and Outs

November (and late October) was the month I got tons of new products so I thought instead of reviewing each one individually I could do it a ins/outs post. I'll basically tell you which products I liked and which I didn't and why is that. Shall we begin?

Benefit Brow zings in medium: IN
This is not a product I use everyday since my brows are quite thick. But I've noticed that when I do a dramatic eye look or dark lips for a night out my brows need more definition. The set includes a brow wax, a brow powder, 2 brushes (the angled one for the wax, the other one for the powder), a pair of tweezers and a big mirror. The box is small and easy to carry around but I noticed I don't need any touch ups, the products last long. The brushes work well, the tweezers don't which is the only drawback of this cute and handy brow set.

Nivea Pure&Natural body lotion: IN
Here is my detailed review. I really like it and I continue to use it.

L'Oreal Glam Shine 6h lip gloss: OUT
The colour is veeeery pretty and the applicator is heart shaped!! But it's sticky!

Max Factor Skoky Eye Effect eyeshadow: OUT
I was really excited to try this product and it disappointed me. Again the colours are super pretty and I love the colour combination. When you first apply them, they are creamy and blendable but not too much to think they'll crease. But the crease. A lot. Even with eye primer underneath. :(

Urban Decay Naked palette: IN
I like it more than I expected! I like that it contains pinky toned nude eyeshadows, I like that it contains 3 dark colours for night-time look, I like that it contains 2 matte browns for defining the crease. You can use them for brows too. I also didn't expect to like the brush but it works great with these eyeshadows! And the Primer Potion works great with the eyeshadows of course.

Revlon eyeliner pencil in aubergine: IN
This is a brownish purple colour, lovely! You can smudge it for a smokey look but it doesn't smudge during the day. It's not too soft and I can't use it for the waterline but neither of them is a problem for me.

Sephora blush in: IN
This is a natural/compliments many skin tones colour. It has shimmer in it but it still looks very fresh and natural and this is why I like it. Lasting power is great too.

Elvive full restore 5 intensive conditioner: IN
This works great. It leaves my hair very soft and I love its smell. Unfortunately, I have long and thick hair so I've already finished it! Will I buy it again? Yes! :D

Universal lip glow: IN THE MIDDLE
I don't know. It's very cool looking, it's moisturising, it gives a hint of colour. But it's not something I'd buy again or buy for a gift because the colour is different on every one's lips.

Lash Architect 4D mascara: OUT
I'm super picky when it comes to mascaras and I don't like this one. It gives no volume or length or curl to my lashes. It smudges during the day and it's sooo difficult to remove at night even with waterproof remover. Which doesn't make sense of course! The only thing I like is that it doesn't clump my lashes.

Studio secrets face primer: IN
This light pink souffle is lovely! Very soft, so soft it's the only face primer I use under the eyes. Works great!

Youth Code: IN
I can't comment on the results, I can only comment on the product itself. I love the packaging. It has a watery/gel consistency which is perfect for all skin types, even the oily ones. It absorbs very fast leaving a velvet skin. It has a light and very nice smell. I gave it to my mum to really test it and I'll be back with details.

Elnett travel size limited edition hair spray: IN
I love the packaging! It's small, easy to carry on my purse and artistic. And I believe Elnett hairspray is one of the all time favourites of many women.

There are some more things I haven't tried yet, I'll review them as soon as I do.
What do you think? I'd love to know your opinion about these products!

Disclaimer: All products were given to me for free. As you can see this doesn't change my opinion about them. Nobody pays me to use or post about them.


  1. I'd like to get a brow kit, I don't think I'll use it very much, I like my brows but these kits are so cute and I think its a good idea to have one. I'm between this one and the one from sleek. I haven't decided yet.
    I really love my UD brush from naked palette. I hated it at first but it is sooo good for all my UD shadows and some others too and it helped me to reduce fallout. Super

  2. Λοιπον φιλεναδα (μου επιτρέπεις να σε αποκαλώ έτσι ε?) οταν είδα ότι σου άρεσε η Naked μου ρθε να βάλω τα κλαματα απ τη χαρά μου. Γιατι και μενα η Sigma ειναι η αγαπημενη μου!!! Τώρα ελπιζω να αρεσει και η τσάντα στην αδερφή σου IoI
    Λοιπον, η μάσκαρα της Loreal εμένα δεν μου φάνηκε τόσο χάλια..αλλά και πάλι δεν θα την αγόραζα για άλλους λόγους. Οσο για τον ορό...σου εγγυώμαι ότι για ηλικίες άνω των 55 και με πολλές και βαθιές ρυτίδες τα αποτελέσματα ειναι ορατά και ακόμα με βρίζω που δεν τράβηξα φωτογραφία του πριν και του μετά της μανας μου...για να σας αποδείξω τα λεγομενά μου. Καλέ φαίνεται η διαφορά!!!

  3. This is so many great stuff. I'd love to get UD naked palette. And I love nivea too.

  4. I've always wondered if the smokey eye thingy by MaxFactor was any good... I was even thinking of buying it, but now I've changed my mind - Thank you, you just saved me 20 leva ^ ^
    I had the Elvive / Here it's "Elseve" / thing - it's very good, ain't it ^ ^
    Strange - no body I know likes the 4D mascara ^ ^

  5. Im in love with Elnett hairsprays lately and im trying not to approach local beauty stores (to stock up) because i have recently found out i am a beauty addict !! hahaha Benefit is perfect for me i have used this brand from the age of 15 and have tried numerous products and have always found them to be worth the money and have great quality. I actually use on my brows the dark brown from Benefits Big Beautiful Eyes to shade them -lasts all day !! xo

  6. @smugnificent: I believe they are the same, if you won't use it every day, you may want to save some money and buy the sleek one. E.L.F. offers a brow kit vesy similar but even cheeper, check it out too! :D

    @Κερασία: και βέβαια μου αρέσει! Είμαι σίγουρη ότι θα της αρέσει, κάθε μέρα με ρωτάει πότε θα συναντηθώ με τη Χριστίνα! χιχιχι!
    Δε μου αρέσει η μάσκαρα, τη δοκίμασα 5-6 φορές, με μουτζουρώνει και δε βγαίνει με τίποτα! Το σέρουμ έχει πολύ ωραία υφή, με το ζόρι το έδωσα στη μαμά μου!!

    @Mateja: yes, they are great! There will be a Naked2 very soon so wait to see if you like it better. I'm sure there will be many giveaways too! :D

    @Sunny.Smile: it looks so pretty but it creases like crazy! Really? Thanks, I thought I was the weird one I didn't like it!

  7. Nice post! Periektiko kai straight to the point! Tin Naked palette tin exo balei sto mati apo kairo alla nomizo oti mallon 8a paro tin II, otan bgei me to kalo.

  8. Φοράω ήδη λίγες μέρες το σέρουμ και το έχω λατρέψει! Ελπίζω να κάνει και δουλίτσα.
