Though the new shade 50,5 didn’t really end up as light as I hoped (it’s just pinky-beige instead of peachy like shade 50, but both are the same depth), this is still one of the best foundations I ever tried. It’s so natural on the skin, it doesn’t emphasizes pores or lines and has about medium coverage. I just love wearing this.
These are so nice. The formula is very smooth, blends with ease and looks great on the skin. Both shades suit me (110 and 115), which is unexpected, though they are both not very pigmented and need building up, but that’s a good thing at pale skin (I’m not sure how dark the third shade is). 110 is a bit lighter and more peachy-beige bronze, while 115 is a classic, slightly reddish bronze. They kind of have a subtle glow to it without having any shimmer. I wonder if SkinLights highlighters have this same smooth formula, I’d love to try them now. These are look so cool with the embossed pattern.
This is from an old collection called Lisbon, but I think it’s still available. It’s like a better version of Essie’s Fiji (which has a terrible formula based on my experience). It’s a very pale, off-white pink with a pastel formula that’s not overly difficult to work with. It needs two to three coats, depending on how careful you are at application.
MOROCCANOIL Dry Body Oil
I’ve been using this every day, though not for the body, but for my hair. I need to apply something nourishing on my ends that get dry fast every day and this is light enough to not weigh down my hair, but still nourishing enough. It tames flyaways and makes the hair more polished, basically the same as the silicone-oil does, except this is silicone free, so I find it’s a proper caring product and less a styling one. This has the typical Moroccanoil scent that’s so nice and it’s very strong, so it lasts a while. I’ve had this one bottle for a very long time, since a little goes a long way.
SUBRINA Charm Super Cool Demi-permanent Toner
OLAPLEX No. 4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo
OLAPLEX No.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask
This mask is so amazing, it makes my hair feel like new and it has superior results on my very dry hair than n.3 treatment (alone, without extra n.0) and n.5 conditioner. My hair feels better and looks better, plus it’s smoother. This with the leave-in n.9 are an excellent combination. It still makes me angry that they only sell 100 ml bottles for such a high price, because at this one I need to use a lot at once.
GUERLAIN Terracotta Le Parfum
While in terms of cleansing this doesn’t bring much new to the table compared to Luna Mini 2 I own too, this is proving to be super handy for monitoring my skin’s hydration levels. It has double 24K gold-plated sensors in the back that analyse percentage of moisture levels for four zones of the face and its type. It then optimises the cleansing process by adjusting time and intensity of T-Sonic vibrations, but I also use that data to pick the skin care products after cleansing. I don’t like it’s not rechargeable and that it’s smaller than Mini 2, but the sensors kinds make up for it.
I just got these products a few days ago and since I know my next new in post is likely not going to be up this summer, I’m posting about them here. I don’t use such products, since I don’t tan, so this will be more general information about them.

*PUPA Multifuction Tanning Unguent
*PUPA 3 in 1 Multifunction Tan Activator
I think this is another tanning jam, but it says it works even when there no sun (it’s not a self-tanner, as it’s DHA free). It says “when applied daily in the period before sun exposure, it prepares the skin for tanning, evening the complexion. When applied under sunscreen, it accelerates and intensifies melanin production, for an even and intense colour in less time. When applied daily after sun exposure, it maintains the melanin, fixing and prolonging the tan.” It’s got a classic creamy texture that absorbs fast enough and has an orange scent.
*PUPA Multifunction After Sun Milk
A fast absorbing face cream for after sunbathing. It’s cooling and refreshing at application, though not in a tingly way (it has no peppermint or similar ingredients). It’s leaves a nice silky feeling on the skin and it’s nicely hydrating. It contains an active ingredient Sun Optimizer that ensures that the tan stays longer.
REVLON SkinLights Prismatic Highlighter – now that I’ve tried the bronzers, I really want to try one of the highlighters in the hopes it has that same texture. It’s a shame they don’t have such blushes too.
ANNY Nail Polish 372 Paint it Mint, Max Factor Miracle Pure Nail Polish 840 Moonstone Blue and OPI Nail Lacquer Mexico City Move-mint – I’d like a new mint green nail polish, since all mine are old and formulas don’t perform all that well (Mint Candy Apple is just useless now). There’s not that many of them anymore in the drugstores.
ESSENCE Gel Nail Colour – I guess there is a new version of the formula now because I saw a lot of new shades online. I haven’t been to the drugstores to see if we have them, but from online pics I like 25 Powder room party, 10 Did you mist me? and 39 Lucky to have blue. There are some pretty bad reviews of the formula though, but I’m hoping they are just about certain shades.
NARS Liquid Blush Orgasm – There’s a stick and a liquid version of the beloved shade. I’d love to have either, but I’m more drawn to the liquid version.
THE BODY SHOP Body Butter Shea – I really need to repurchase this already. It’s a thick, very rich moisturiser that I like to use on very dry parts of the body. Plus it smells nice.
BALEA Vital+ Ceramid Serum – I don’t need this, so it’s just to show what’s new in DM. They revamped their Vital serum and added ceramides.
