WOE?! Tom Ford Black Orchid EdP

Dear Roses and Lilies,

I am starting my "what on earth?!" series with a well known and very dark fragrance.


Swatch time: Essence Vibrant Shock Lip Paint in 05 Nightstalker

Dear Roses and Lilies,

Not so long ago, Essence launched some new liquid lipsticks: some metallic, some matte - and really vibrant. I am not a fan of metallic lipsticks, so I went with the Vibrant Shock Lip Paint. Looking at pictures online just after the lip paints became available, I immediately got drawn in by the blue hue, that did not lean green nor purple, so 05 Nightstalker was immediately in my shopping cart. Then I waited 24 hours for the order to arrive, all the while thinking about what a superb addition this hue would be to my ever growing collection.


Old MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour?

Dear Roses and Lilies,

Today's post is going to be a bit more laid back, if that is even possible. :-) I was going through the liquid lipsticks from MAC I got early this year, when I discovered something disheartening about my little stash.


Swatch time: MAC Stone Matte Lipstick

Dear Roses and Lilies,

There was some hype surrounding MAC Stone last year and I remember looking and lots of pictures on instagram, trying to decide whether or not to get this shade. I never owned any shade like this, because I always thought it would make me look washed out. But I went with the trend, and got Stone anyway. Now this, to me, looks like a cool undertoned brown in the tube.


MAC Passionate matte eyeshadow review and looks

Dear Roses and Lilies,

Gerovital H3 Derma+ Purifying Foaming Gel review

Dear Roses and Lilies,

I have been using the Gerovital H3 Derma+ Purifying Foaming Gel for quite some time, as an alternative to scrubs. This product is formulated for oily skin, and it is for daily use. It says on the bottle: "Efficiently and gently cleanses the skin / Purifies and regulates sebum production".


Gerovital Plant Moisturizing Micellar Water review

Dear Roses and Lilies,

Continuing on the makeup remover/skincare theme this week, I give you my review of the Gerovital Plant Moisturizing Micellar Watter review. Yes, they misspelled "water", but then English is not our first language :).
