Review of Estée Lauder ''Double Wear Mascara''

So, I've been using this mascara every day since I bought it, which is approximately 2 weeks now. I love the gold and the blue packaging together it looks really luxurious! :). I also love that the bottle is so handy, it's the perfect size. That's what I love about ''more expensive'' makeup, the packaging always look so luxurious and gorgeous. And you usually get what you pay for, which is quality, don't you agree?

My current favourite mascara is the ''Lancôme Definicils Mascara'', but I wanted to try something new, and I thought that this mascara seemed quite much like the Lancôme's. It basically had the same wand as the one from Lancôme so I had to try it! I did not like this one as much as Lancôme's though, continue reading the review and I'll tell you why.
It says on the mascara that it's a zero-smudge lengthening mascara, and I totally agree with that! It does not smudge at all, which I love about it. It also stays on all day, so you don't need to worry about reapplication. One thing that I don't like about this mascara is that it comes too much product on the wand, which makes your eyelashes appear more heavy-looking. In the pictures you might not see it as clear as in real life, but I hope you still understand what I mean.
(This is how Estée Lauder ''Double Wear Mascara'' looks like on my eyelashes)

How do you think this mascara looks like after application? I've used 2 layers on the upper lash-line and that's totally enough to make your eyelashes more lenghtened. I really like how it looks like, but; I'm not the biggest fan of how difficult it is to makes your eyelashes defined while applying this mascara. You need to brush through your eyelashes a lot while applying it, so they won't be too thick, because otherwise they'll end out waaaaay to thick.. I promise you that. It's also quite difficult to remove even with my favourite eye make-up remover of all time, that removes any mascara easily... But removing this mascara with that eye make-up remover is not as easy, at all.

YSL Fall 2011 Collection

WOW!! These pictures from YSL Fall 2011 are just breathtaking. Don't you think? It's absolutely gorgeous. The main colours in this collection are purple, blue and green as you can see. For me it couldn't be more appropriate for fall. I love it!!

(Image 3):The eyeshadow quad is called ''Jardin de Minuit'' and contains 5 different shades (1 dark-green, 1 mint-green and 3 purple shades). My favourite shades from this quad is the mint-green and the 2 lilac shades to the right.

(Image 4):The nailpolishes are also absolutely gorgeous! I love that they contain a little glitter, that make them look more luxurious I think. My personal favourite of those two is the dark-blue one. I think that colour is the ''most appropriate'' one for fall of them two.

(Image 5):There are also 6 new lipsticks in this collection, they're called ''Rouge Volupté Perlé''. I'd say that the shades are definitely appropriate for the fall, but I'd say that the shades are a little different (two of the shades are purple). But the other shades are absolutely gorgeous I think. I really like that they've made a nude lipstick, so that you can wear it with the ''Jardin de Minuit''-quad. The red and the light-red lipstick are just absolutely GORGEOUS! Love them!!

(Image 6):As you can see, there are also 5 new blushes, called ''Blush Radiance''. I'm really interested of the first 3 ones, just because that I think that they would fit perfect with a look that's fall-inspired, if you know what I mean. I really want them!

My favourite beauty-tools for hair

(1: Goldwell Straight Flat Marvel. 2: Goldwell Hair Sprayer. 3: Goldwell Double Boost Root lift Spray.)

These are my favourite beauty-tools for my hair. They're all from Goldwell, I really like that brand. I've basically used the ''Goldwell Straight Flat Marvel'', for my whole life and it's great(!!). You just need a small amount of it before using the Flat Iron, and your hair will be perfectly protected from the heat and your hair feels a lot smoother and looks more healty. The ''Goldwell Hair Sprayer'' is a classic for me. It's awesome! BUT: the ''Goldwell Double Boost Root Lift Spray'' is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. It makes such a big difference to the volume of your hair and it's a lot more better for your hair than to back-comb it. Okay, all of the products are amazing!

Review of Maybelline ''Pure Mineral Foundation SPF 18'':

A while back ago I bought the Maybelline ''Pure Mineral Foundation SPF 18'', you remember? :) I chose it because it was available in quite many shades (six shades). It was also SPF 18, which is quite a lot for a cheep foundation like this, usually you'll have to buy more ''expensive'' foundations if you want a really high SPF on a foundation :). Anyhow, SPF 18 sounded right enough for me when I bought it, and I still think it's enough. 

It's also oil free (a must have for me who's a teenager and has quite oily skin already, a foundation that contains oil is super-wrong for me then!), yay. As you see it's a pure mineral foundation and on the ''back'' on the bottle it says this: ''Make-up that's good to skin- it's proven''. I agree with that, I haven't gotten any more pimples after using this for less or more than 2 months now, I really like that(!!). The bottle is just an ''ordinary'' foundation bottle, but no complains, I like it. One reason is because it has a pump, which a foundation should have(!!), I think it's really important because it's easier to get the amount that you wish.

I bought the shade called ''026 Honey Beige'', which is the third darkest shade. When you pour some foundation on a piece of paper or on the back of your hand (okay anywhere really) it looks quite dark. But when you apply it in your face it's definitely not as dark. This shade was perfect(!!) for me though, and it's the perfect summer-shade for me. It's really easy to apply, and it blends in perfectly and gives you a very natural complexion. For me, it's almost a tinted moisturizer for me, considering how light it looks on your skin, which I really like. During the summer a tinted moisturizer is enough (according to me of course).

When I use this foundation I use my ''Mac Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder'' (I'll give you a review of that product the fastest I can!!)., and they cooperate excellent together!! Using the Maybelline ''Pure Mineral Foundation SPF 18''+ that finishing powder, I'd say that my face stays matte for approximately 3 hours. The foundation has begun disappearing after atleast 6 hours though. That's totally OK according to me!:). You do need quite many touch-ups during the day though, so your foundation will stay looking matte. Overall, it's a great product, and I don't really have anything to complain about, except that it doesn't cover blemishes or uneveness in your face at all. Which I don't like...
