BEAUTY BOX │ Douglas ♥ You Beauty Box Review

douglas september bb

Beauty boxes are not new in the world, however, Croatian girls didn’t have a chance to get any as they are not available in our country. I’m really happy that Douglas perfumerie has started this project – a beauty box exclusive to Douglas Beauty Club (which is nothing secret – just fill out the application form in Douglas store).

ESTEE LAUDER Bronze Goddess Capri (Summer 2012 Collection) Preview

To me it seems like Estee Lauder constantly puts out the same products.

I am only intrigued by this new gelee formula of eyeshadows and bronzer which is still not available here.

My Stash: Eyeshadows, Mascaras and Eyeliners

We have finally arrived to my favourite part: eyeshadows. I think that if I’d stop to buy eyeshadows today, I’d still have enough to last me a lifetime.

As for the eyeliners, I’m not a great collector. I prefer black, but here and there I use colour eyeliners.

Project 10 Pans: Update #2

You thought that I have forgotten about my Project 10 Pans? Well, I didn’t.

Here’s another update with the items I have spent in the last three weeks, since the Update #1.

The last two weeks have been really slow and I didn’t spend so many products. But the good thing is that many are close to finishing, so I hope that soon, I’ll be rid of many more items.

But for now, this are the products that are gone:

Dove Pro Age Body Lotion (yes, I have finally gotten rid of this horrible, horrible product)

Estee Lauder Spotlight (if you by chance own this product, please cut the tube, as I have found out that even when I couldn’t squeze anything out, there was over 5 ml of cream left in the tube). 

Clarins Pink Clay mask.

As I have said, it is not much, but still, it is 3 products less.

And not to forget, ever since I have realized that Meteories Illuminating Perfecting Pressed Powder  is being discontinued (I don’t know why, because this pressed powder is the best out there), I’ve been searching to stock up. I have found an amazing deal ($35), so I’ve got Mythic Parfait, which I will save for the winter.

FOUNDATION SWATCHES – Light Foundations (High End)

Again, I’ve been bored, so I’ve decided to swatch some of the palest foundation shades you can find in stores in my country.

I have to say that I’m very disappointed with the choice of the really pale foundations. Out of 14 foundations I have swatched (and I have really picked the lightest shades), I could only pull off 5 shades.

The foundations are swatched in this order (click on th picture to enlarge it):

Top row (from left to right):

TOO FACED Amazing Face Oil Free Close-Up Coverage Foundation in Vanilla Cream (I’m tempted to get this foundation only because of the bottle)

LANCOME Teint Miracle in #010 Beige Porcelaine

LANCOME Teint Miracle in #01 Beige Albatre

SISLEY Phyto-Teint Eclat in #0 Porcelaine

ESTEE LAUDER Double Wear in #1W2 Linen

DIOR Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Make-Up in #010 Ivory

DIOR Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Creme-Gel Make-Up in #010 Ivory

BY TERRY Lumière Veloutée in #6 Beige Doré (you can see how the foundation darkens as it dries)

Bottom row (from left to right):

DIOR Capture Totale Foundation in #010 Ivory

YVES SAINT LAURENT Teint Resist in #1 Ivory

GUERLAIN Lingerie de Peau in #12 Rose Clair

GUERLAIN Parure Aqua in #02 Beige Clair (keep in mind that the shades in Parure Aqua are slightly lighter than the shades in other Guerlain foundations, with shades in Parure Gold being the darkest)

BY TERRY Lumière Veloutée in #5 Beige Tendre (you can see how much the foundation darkens as it dries)

BY TERRY Lumière Veloutée in #3 Beige Naturel

I hope this has been helpful :)

Project 10 Pans: Update #1

As most of you probably know, not long ago I’ve started my Project 10 pans, which will help me to finally spend some of the items that I’ve been keeping half-spent in my stash for years (I think that the oldest item is Guerlain Kiss Kiss Maxi Shine lipstick, which is over 5 years old, and surprisingly, even now it is the same as it was the day I bought it – it didn’t changed the texture or the smell).

The list of all the items I’m planning to spend can be found here:

Make-up

Skincare

Bodycare

Today, I reporting on my first two weeks of the project.
