1) Biopoint Speedy Hair Shampoo
Lovely shampoo. Leaves the hair feeling a bit too squeaky clean, but the mask compensates nicely. I’m not over the moon about the (fruity, fairly strong) smell, but I can’t smell it in my hair once it’s dry. The cap broke after the first use and I had to store it upside down, which was a pain. Apart from these notes, I really love and I already own two backups. I don’t know if it makes my hair grew faster, but it’s officialy my “fancy” shampoo.
2) Biopoint Speedy Hair Maschera (mask)
This is seriously good stuff. It leaves my (average density, but extremely fine) hair feeling lovely, manageable, shiny and thick. I love love love it. It even has a different, better smell than the shampoo from the same line. Love it.
3) Australia’s Original 100% Tea Tree Oil
It’s tea tree oil. This is the brand I’ve been buying from for years, but recently the store I get it from has started stocking a different brand and it’s the exact same thing.
4) Elf Flawless Finish Foundation in Porcelain
I’m getting rid of it because the undertones are wrong for me (way too pink), and I strongly dislike the finish, which is very dry and uncomfortable. If the color range suits you better (this is the fairest shade, I think) and you have extremely oily skin you might not hate it. It’s not expensive at all. Pay attention to the glass container: mine chipped and became very sharp and dangerous.
5) Revlon Ultra Mat Foundation (sample)
This foundation is 3-4 shades too dark for me. I got the sample as part of a gift from a nice relative of my aunt who had never met me, but knew I was into makeup. The formula is really lovely and the smell so nice that I hold onto it anyway. I’m tossing it because it’s too old to be sanitary, but its little spatula will forever hold a place in my heart.
6) L’Oréal Paris Nude Magique Eau De Tint in 001 Porcelain
I’m sorry this doesn’t work for me (too pink, once again), because the liquid formula is very cool. Sigh.
4), 5), 6) Kiko Milano Precision Eyeliner
Lovely eyeliner, lovely price, lovely felt tip. I’m not sure how old any of these is, so I’m tossing them all (it will serve as a reminder to be more mindful when I shop for essentials, I guess). I’d repurchase, as I am sure you could all guess.
7) MUA Extreme Felt Eyeliner
I got this a gift with an order I placed, or maybe I bought it because it was only £1 and I needed to cross a minimum order threshold, I really can’t remember. It has a nice felt tip and does a fine job when it comes to tightlining. I don’t like it much for actually lining the lid. I’m tossing it because it has dried out (the cap clicks, but I think it’s easy to leave it slightly off and not notice), but I used it for a reasonable amount of time. I will not repurchase because I don’t intend to place any other order with MUA, as their products are ok for their price but nothing to write home about (except for the Mosaic Blusher English Rose, that one is lovely), and the shipping fees are steep. It’s been replaced by Maybelline’s Master Graphic eyeliner marker, which will also have to do the Kiko liquid liner’s job.
