Reviews ~ Finished Products Februari 2012

'It's time to share with you my finished products of the month February. It's not a lot this time, so let's take an closer look.'

'First I finished this showergel by Yves Rocher in Comoran Ylang Ylang. I know, I purchased it also this month, but this was the bottle in my shower. I start using this bottle at the middle of januari after finishing my Dove showercream. I purchased this long before GlitterKitty's ShoppingHunt was born, also in an big Yves Rocher purchase. What more can I say? This is one of my favorite showergels.'

'Next up is this Bonnebell Bottled Emotion in Pretty. Oh my paws I have this for ages now. I do have two other scents of this brand. Pretty smells very girly- girl to me. I can't really describe the scent, but I do like this pinky bottle.'

'Then I finished two lipsticks again. They are from Catrice, and the first one is an discontinued Absolute Moisture one. Color is 160 Dark Rosewood. Sad that it's gone now, I liked that color. Weared it all the time during the fall and wintertime. The other one is an Catrice Ultimate Shine Lipstick, and it was in 030 Rose 'n Gun. This is typical an lipstick I bought because of the name, wich reminds me of Guns 'n Roses, the band. However, I didn't like this color on my lips, it was way too frosty and metallicy. I used this every night at home during winter. I used it more like an coloured lipbalm, because Ultimate Shines are moisturizing on my lips. Never had the courage to wear this color outside, that's why I used this mostly inside. How more I used this one, how softer it became and how more the package damaged, so one night there was only an 25% left, and it broke and fell on the floor (wich I didn't hover yet, offcourse). From that point I tried to scoop it out, but I was done with it. So I threw it in my finished products basket this month. Honestly, I'm glad Catrice discontinued Rose 'n Gun.'

'Next I finishes is another lipproduct, and it's one by Carmex. This clicstick is in mint, and the scent reminds me of the square mints my grandfather always had. It doesn't smell that bad though, but I'm not an big fan of Carmex lipproducts, because they have an very chemical taste when it comes in my mouth. However, this one  is for my taste one of the better ones. Again, I have this product for ages now, at least two years. I started using it at the end of 2010, and mostly I used Carmex in wintertime.'

'Lastly I finished this small Nivea Creme thin. It was an sample wich I got for free. This creme I used mostly for my feet, because it is an thick, oily consistency. Nivea said that you can use this regular creme all over the body and face, but personal I don't want to put this on my face. In my opinion it's great for very dry winter feet.'

(Nail Art) Prizes/ Giveaways ~ Start of the Week with Ciaté Painpot in Ladylike Luxe

'A couple of weeks ago I entered an Ciaté Paintpot giveaway for the Iam So Glam Collection. You had to tag yourself in their pic, so I tagged myself on the LadyLike Luxe Paintpot. Luckily enough I won! I'm so happy with that. Now time to take a look of this nailpolish, with an little review.'

'First a look at the Paintpot bottle. I love the little black bow on it. It's not glued on the small black cap, so far as I figured it out. The brush is thin. I didn't make a lot mistakes during painting. The consistency is not too thick or too watery and goes on very smooth.'

'And here it is on my nails. Omfgh, this color is so pretty on. Not to forget: this is only one coat here. This nailpolish dried very quik on my nails. I'm very satisfied with this Nailpolish brand. Thinking of ordering a creme finish Paintpot. You can buy Ciaté Paintpots online at Ciaté Nederland, and they're retail for 11,99 each.'

Purchases ~ Catrice Limited Edition Nymphelia Lip Color Cream in Blossom

'Because I'm allowed to write as an freelance concert reporter at the local broadcasting company, I pampered myself to buy something new. That something became an Nymphelia Lip Colour Cream in Blossom. Nymphelia is Catrice's last came out Limited Edition at the moment.'

'Blossom is an beautiful peachy opaque looking color in the tube, but I came across a few dissappointments. First thing is the applicator. I really hoped that the applicator should be a brush, but it's an standard spongetip applicator, wich Catrice allready carry in their selection. Second is how it came out on the lips. Coverage isn't that good, it came out very sheer on my lips. Byebye opaqueness. Third thing is the lastingpower. It doesn't last very long on my lips, longest time is 30 minutes. The scent disappeared within 15 minutes.'

'However, I do have a couple of good things. First I really like the color how it is in the tube. Second is the scent. It smells like the standard winegum flower scent, wich I like. Third thing I like is the fact that it isn't sticky at all. (what explains why it last not so long on the lips) It is an soft consistency, but not really a cream. In a word, it's not what I expect from a opaque looking lipcream. This is an Limited Edition, and it retails for 3,79. And another thing: this product reminds me of the Revlon lipglosses. I think I had an better buy when I bought a couple of new Catrice nailpolish shades. I'm trying to get my hands on all the new came out Ultimate Laquers at the moment, so I work on an seperated post for them.'

Projects ~ I'm Sitting On A Volcano with Catrice

'I purchased a long while back this eyeshadow from Catrice in 130 Sitting On A Volcano, and ever since I try to find my way with it. Seems today I have an option wich also works for me.'

'First I applied some concealer all over my lid an all under the eyes. Then with my fingers I pat on Sitting On A Volcano also all over the lid. To blend it a little more I used 090 Bring Me The Frosted Cake (also single eyeshadow by Catrice) under my brows and a little in my crease. For the finishing touch I used an thin line of my Catrice Eyeliner Pen in Black. On my waterline I used an silver eyeliner and black eyeliner, wich isn't very visible on the pic. Yeah, again it's and very Catrice-y day.'

Projects ~ Masque Mania with Montagne Jeunesse

'When I was clearing my  make up dresser, I came across an box with used masks from Montagne Jeunesse. I want to make an post about Montagne Jeunesse Masks for ages now... I planned to post one on my previous weblog, but because of the weblog vs wordpress fusion I wasn't be able to make one. I didn't make pics yet, and I don't have pics about how the consistency looks like, but I do have pics about the (used) packages. So please keep in mind that I used these masks far back in 2011 and to use them all, it costs me about six months. In this post I'm going to give you girls an description of every mask I used, and what my opinions are.'

'Along in the same box where I found these masks, I found an piece of paper with notes, so I will give you my opinion about Montagne Jeunesse Masks according to these notes.'

'Sensitive Skin Masque with Ceramides Serum~ Mask is white, but smells really disgusting. The serum didn't work. I believe this mask is allready discontinued, cause when I lastly looked for masks, I didn't find it anymore.'

'Peel - Off Masque~ Smells really fresh, and when it dried up it is  slightly tight around the skin. When I try to peel it off, you need to work hard to get the job done. Consistency is blue, and jelly- ish. I believe it's still available.'

'Passion Peel- Off~ Smells fruity, more like pomegranate then passion flower in my opinion. Consistency is red and jelly- ish. I peeled this mask off better then the regular peel off.'

'Skin Polisher~ In my opinion this one smells more like stragiatelle yoghurt then honey- ish. Consistency is thick, white and smells too much for me. My skin became after this mask really soft, though.'

'Gel Cream Masque~ Watery pink- ish consistency, not a gel at all. Smells really fruity, and it seems this mask contains little fruit (?) granules. For me it smells good, but the consistency ran off my face.'

'Aromatherapy Masque~ Really relaxing scent. Lilacy and thick consistency. I enjoyed this one, and I purchase this again when I'm stressed out.'

'Mud Pac~ Smells like an fresh dead sea, seaweed- ish. Consistency is thick, and I believe the color seems to be an taupe color. This one makes me also really relaxed.'

'Sauna Masque~ When you apply this mask, it's getting warm. It smells really good, I can't really descibe the smell, but the consistency is liquidy and has an soft red color.'

'Fruit Smoothie~ Smells mostly like raspberry in my opinion. Not one of the favoritest scents, but also not one of the worst. Consistency is like yoghurt, white and a little thick.'

'Blemish Mud~ Typical mud and aloe vera scent. Consistency is lime green- ish and thick. Not my thing, but pleasant enough.'

'Fudge Sauna~ Consistency is light golden brown, liquidy and is getting warm when you apply it. Smells like caramels and it makes me really happy. You need to like sweet scents for this one. I think for some of you it might be a little overpowering.'

'Chocolat Blanc~ Consistency is really creamy, creamy white in color and it's smells so so so yummy... There's a little bit butter scent through it, but not annoying and my skin should be really soft after this. You enjoy chocolate without the calories.'

'Chocolate Masque~ Again, this one is really creamy, light brown in color and the scent is lovely, not too much, just perfect.'

'GlitterKitty's personal favorites: Passion Peel- Off, Aromatherapy Masque,  Fudge Sauna, and Chocolat Blanc.'

'GlitterKitty's no likes: Sensitive Skin Masque with Ceramides Serum, Gel Cream Masque, and Skin Polisher.'

'GlitterKitty's personal conclusion: Not every mask will work. Most masks only makes you relaxed, but it doesn't that much for the skin. After using these masks your skin should be look fresh and clean, but when you look closer you might notice that it isn't an prevention for blackheads or acne. One sachet is one application, and retails for 1,75. However, Montagne Jeunesse sells also these masks in a bottle, and retails for 5,95. These bottles are up to 10 applications, so I defenately want to try them out. You know, just for relaxing, cause Montagne jeunesse makes you really relaxed.'

'Pics are taken on my make updresser at night with my Sony Ericsson Mobile Phone Camera. Please bare with me, my make updresser isn't that clean on some points, I'm terribly sorry for that. Other pics by Montagne Jeunesse.'

Purchases ~ On the Hunt for Muppets: Grumpyness Rules with Waldorf and Statler

'I'm back with another Muppet Purchase. I got those Muppets from my Dutch grocery store Albert Heijn. I paid €1 and six Muppetpoints. For more info about this, check my Swedish Cheff post.'

'I know, my second Muppet should be Gonzo, but guess what? Gonzo was allready sold out, together with Kermit, Fozzie, Miss Piggy and Animal. The only ones left, where Swedish Chef (wich we allready got) and those two grumpy old men Waldorf and Statler. I need to confess that my feonce prefer those two guys above all the others, cause the others are quit populair. Now we have at least two Muppets wich isn't own by everyone. No wonder nobody wanted Waldorf and Statler, you know it are two grumpy old men in Muppet World, but why the hack Swedish Chef isn't that populair... I truly don't know...'

'Like we gave Swedish Chef an own place above our microwave, I gave Waldorf and Statler their own little and cozy spot on my bookshelf. Not that these grumpy characters ever will read... I think they can't read Dutch ^_^ , and I think if they do, they choose for horror... I guess.'

'Pics are taken by myself with my Sony Ericsson Xperia Mobile Phone camera. One day these phone pics should be better.' ^_^
