About “Us”

About…

…the blog:

In this blog we talk cosmetics! It simply contains personal opinion, reviews and some tips and tricks. It is not linked, indirectly or indirectly, to any company.

Don’t forget it expresses personal opinion and what works for me, might not work for you. I might hate someone else’s “holy grail” products, but that does not mean that they are bad products, but that simply don’t work for me, for my complexion, skin type and my lifestyle.

…me:

I am not a beauty professional, I am simply into cosmetics and I created this blog because I wanted to share my opinion on products.

I don’t believe there is such thing as “must have” products. And I also don’t believe in “dos and don’ts”. Seriously? Things do not work the same for everyone, trends do not look good on everyone and not everyone can pull them off and if someone feels like doing something someone else don’t, who should stop them?
I believe in individuality and in “Live and Let Live”.

Also I might mention favorite or best looks (at events, for instance) or anything favorite, for that matter, but don’t expect me to mention any “unfavorite” [anything], or worst looks or anything like that. If someone decides to go with a specific look apparently there is at least one person that likes it, so who would say that I’m right and that person, and probably more, are wrong?
There is already enough negativity into the world, there is no need for me to release mine, as well.

Some of my “holy grail” (longtime favorite) products:
M·A·C cleanse off oil (click here for my review)
M·A·C naked lunch eyeshadow (click here to see a swatch of naked lunch and other favorite  M·A·C eyeshadows)
LA ROCHE POSSAY Effaclar Duo cream No more! It stopped being my favorite, since it became Effaclar Duo [+]. My skin does not agree with the new formula
VICHY Face emulsion dry touch sunscreen SPF 30 (click here for my review)
SEPHORA Triple action cleansing water (mentioned on my Alternatives to Bioderma Cleansing Water post)
TOMMY Girl perfume
KENZO Flower perfume

…the layout:

I guess I change the background and header a lot, but what can I say? I’m Sagittarius, I get bored easily.

My summer 2015 is the same as 2014 and 2013 (see info below).

My Christmas 2014 is the same as 2013 (see info below).

I have created the “notebook” background and header (September – November 2014 and January – May 2015). The main font of the header is called Watermark and the secondary one Whatever. They both can be found on dafont.

My summer 2014 theme was the same as last year and it was based on a photo I took few summers ago in Paros (a Greek island). The font used in the header is called “Party at Gatsby’s”.

I created the March – mid June 2014 background and header. The main font of my header is called Watermark and the secondary one is called Whatever. They both can be found on dafont.

My Valentine’s 2014  background, entitled Red Hearts, is form Profile Rehab. The main font of my header is called Watermark and the secondary one is called Whatever. They both can be found on dafont.

My November 2013 and January 2014 background, entitled Golden Flower, is form Profile Rehab. The main font of my header is called Watermark and the secondary one is called Vanessa Loves You. They both can be found on dafont.

My Christmas 2013 backround, entitled “Christmas Tree Background”, is once again form ProfileRehab. The main font of my header is called Watermark and the secondary one is called Whatever. They both can be found on dafont.

I created the September – October theme. The fonts used for the title are Sketch College and Sketch Nice that I found on dafont. The font for the previous header matched on that background entitled Martina can be downloaded on fontzone.

My summer theme was based on a photo I took few summers ago in Paros (a Greek island). I used the “Party at Gatsby’s” font, like earlier this year. (June – mid September 2013)

The font used in the header, entitled “Party at Gatsby’s”, was created by tysmagic and I got it from Fontspace . (January – March 2013)

The pattern used as my Valentine’s background was from ava7patterns, #1673.

The pattern used as my background and for my header was from  ava7patterns, #1550 . (January – mid February 2013)

My Christmas background was from ProfileRehab, entitled “Christmas Tree Background”.
