Hi lovelies, how are you doing today? As you may already know, I love using L'Oréal makeup products. It is one of the most affordable and high-quality drugstore brand, that is available all over the world. Please check out my previous review on L'Oréal True Match Concealer here. But today we are going to take a closer look at L'Oréal True Match Mineral Makeup Powder and find out a little bit more about this product.

L'Oréal claims that True Match Mineral Makeup is made with 95% pure minerals for an improved complexion and healthier skin. I checked the ingredient list of the product and almost all of them are natural and synthetic minerals. L'Oréal True Match Mineral Powder comes in a beautiful and travel-friendly jar with a shiny closure., though on my opinion the closure should be a little bit flatter for an extra mobility. Inside of the jar you won't find a regular plastic division with tiny holes, which help powder to escape from the jar. Instead there is a very fine and soft material, that allows you to pick up the necessary amount of the product.

The powder is really finely-milled and has a very pleasant silky texture. Some mineral powders and foundations tend to dry out the skin, emphasizing skin patches and fine lines. But, thankfully, L'Oréal  True Match Mineral Powder isn't drying and looks very lightweight and natural on the skin. When I applied a subtle layer on my skin, I was hoping to see a very familiar matte finish, but I was so wrong. L'Oréal powder has a very fresh satin finish, it smoothly blends on the skin, without looking heavy. I have a shade called 1R Rose Ivory and I believe it is the lightest shade at the moment.

I was impressed with a lightweight texture and subtle satin finish of L'Oréal True Match Mineral Powder and can absolutely recommend it to everyone, who loves their skin to look young and fresh. It looks and feels very comfortable on the skin throughout all day. People with problematic skin will appreciate the smooth formula of this mineral power, however they might want something with a fuller coverage and matte finish. Thank you very much for visiting my blog, I hope my little review was very useful and interesting. Until next time 


Lots of love,

Soft nude lips aren't just perfect for neutral everyday makeup, they can beautifully balance a dramatic smokey eye look and even enlarge tiny and thin lip shape. As an owner of small lips, I love using nude lipsticks to 'fake' bigger lip shape. When you are using nude colors to overdraw your natural lip shape the result usually looks more native and effortless. Today we are going to take a look at NiceFace Nude Lip Pencil Set*, which was kindly sent to me by ToSave store for review purposes.

NiceFace Nude Lip Pencil Set contains 12 beautiful matte lip pencils, they come perfectly sharpened and packed in a box. I prefer a traditional 'wooden' pencils, over a twistable plastic design. And the reason why I like them better is because you can easily sharpen wooden pencils with a lip liner sharpener, unlike twistable pencils, which usually aren't sharp enough. But, back to the NiceFace lip pencils, here is my personal description for every shade in the set, I hope it will help you to understand the color selection a little bit better.

01 Matte cool toned gray color with no shimmer or glitter.
02 Matte cool toned amethyst shade with no shimmer.
03 Matte light and neutral brown color with no shimmer or glitter.
04 Matte warm toned  light red color with no shimmer or glitter.
05 Matte cool toned dark burgundy shade with no shimmer or glitter.
06 Matte cool toned terracotta color , a mix between colors 03 and 04 with no shimmer or glitter.
07 Matte cool coffee and milk color with no shimmer or glitter.
08 Matte cool toned brick red shade with no shimmer or glitter.
09 Matte cool toned nude rosy color, it is very similar to 07, but darker with no shimmer or glitter.
10 Matte cool toned umber brown color with no shimmer or glitter.
11 Matte cool toned salmon color with no shimmer or glitter.
12 Matte dark vine color with no shimmer and glitter.

The formula of NiceFace lip liners is enreached with cocoa seed butter for an extra smooth application and gentle hydration of the lips. These lip pencils are really easy to work with: they are creamy, smooth and well-pigmented, though I wish they were even more intense. Matte lipsticks and lip pencils always make my dry skin even more flaky, but not these matte pencils. Before applying lip liner, I suggest to gently exfoliate your lips with a lip scrub and moisturize them with a lip balm. After these simple lip care procedures nude lip liners will work even better.

Overall, I'm absolutely satisfied with the performance of these nude lip pencils. Some of the lightest shades lack pigmentation, but they have incredible staying power and look fresh on the skin a very long time. Of course, the formula is not long-lasting and once you eat a meal or drink some coffee, lips color tends to smudge. These universal nude shades work for every skin complexion and you can even find a lip color, that perfectly resembles your natural lip shade. Thanks to the versatility of the colors, these lip pencils are also easy to match with a nude lipstick colors I already have. Until next time 

Lots of love,

It seems like every makeup junkie, especially those, who have problematic skin are always on a hunt for a perfect makeup foundation. We want it to be lightweight and seamless, like a second skin, long-lasting and waterproof, so we don't need to worry about our makeup throughout the day and, of course, taking a good care of our skin. Today we are going to talk about one of the most full-coverage foundation on the makeup market - Dermacol Make-Up Cover Foundation by a Prague based cosmetic company, first started in the Barrandov Film Studios.

Let's start with the packaging. Dermacol makeup foundation comes in soft aluminium tube, that somehow reminds me of gouache paint. Frankly, I'm not the biggest fan of this packaging, because it gets easily deformed and stops satisfying my aesthetic needs. Nevertheless, you are going to receive an booklet with step by step instructions in nine different languages, including English, isn't it amazing!

The formula of Dermacol foundation is truly impressive. It is waterproof, hypoallergenic, long-lasting and even has an SPF 30 - everything a good foundation needs to be. The very first in the list and major ingredient in the compound of this foundation titanium dioxide - a white pigment, commonly used in food and beauty industry. This ingredient explains, why Dermacol is so incredibly pigmented and thick. The next ingredient is paraffinum liquidum - a base, that helps to hold all the ingredients together, making the foundation durable and thick.

As I mentioned earlier, Dermacol foundation has a very thick texture, it is hard to reach beautiful seamless blending and natural finish, but the coverage is as full as it can be. It reminds me a little bit of a grease paint, that is usually used for body art. Once applied on the skin, it totally covers imperfections, but looks cakey and unnatural. I was expecting it to crease and emphasize fine lines under the eyes, but it worked surprisingly good. 

How to use Dermacol foundation? I strongly recommend you to start with a basic skin care routine, that includes gently exfoliator and a very lightweight daily facial moisturizer. Without this two crucial steps your foundation might look heavy on the skin. The foundation is thick and pigmented, but has a buildable formula, so it is better to start with a smaller amount of the product. Apply the foundation and start blending it with a blending brush or beauty blender. Don't forget to set Dermacol with setting or translucent powder or your skin is going to look shiny.

Summarizing this review, Dermacol makeup foundation is definitely worth our attention. I don't think it is an everyday product, because it feels really heavy on the skin and doesn't look very natural. Because of it's greasy formula, Dermacol needs to be set with a right amount of powder, and this step makes it look even heavier. If you have severe acne, scars or blemishes on the skin Dermacol will definitely cover them all, but won't make your skin healthier.

Have you tried Dermacol makeup foundation? What is your favorite full coverage foundation?

Lots of love,
