Empty products #3/ Produse terminate #3

Hello everybody,

As I said in my previous article, today I’ll talk about the second part of my beauty trash. I’ll talk about the dry shampoos, the nail polishes, complexion products and the parfum I managed to use lately. Also I’ll be telling you if I liked the products and if I’ll repurchase them or not. Let’s start!

Buna tuturor,

Asa cum am spus in articolul precedent, azi voi vorbi despre cea de a doua parte a gunoiului meu cu produse de infrumusetare. Voi povesti despre sampoanele uscate, lacuri de unghii, produse pentru ten si un parfum pe care am reusit sa le folosesc in ultima vreme. De asemenea, va voi spune daca mi-au placut produsele si daca le voi cumpara din nou. Sa incepem!

batiste dry shampoo

  • Batiste Dry Shampoo Tropical – Coconut & Exotic (200ml) (£2.99) – I love this dry shampoo and the scent is amazing! It leaves a bit of a white cast on the roots of my hair, but I’m careful to brush it out. I use it on second and third day hair, but I don’t like to use it more than that as I don’t think it can do a good job on my hair after that point. I also use it to get a bit of volume as my hair is really long and fine and just to sits on the top of my head. As I said before, I love the scent it leaves behind – it’s not too sweet (and leaves a bit of fruity and fresh scent behind) and it fades nicely through the day. Also I didn’t find that it interferes with my perfume. So I’ll definitely buy it again.
  • Batiste Dry Shampoo Brown – Dark & Deep (200ml) (£3.99) – it’s a dry shampoo for brown and dark hair. It isn’t suppose to leave a cast behind and it should blend in nicely and soak up the excess oil from your roots. OK. For me it doesn’t do any of those things. Of course it doesn’t leave a white cast behind, as the spray is a brown color, but it leaves it all on your fingers when you’re blending the product in on the to of your head. It doesn’t do a great job with controlling the excess oil either – I feel that my hair is more dirty than it was before and I feel like scratching my head all day long. The scent is not my favorite – too sweet for my taste – and also I couldn’t even use up all the product. I still have less then a half in it, so is safe to say that I won’t buy this product ever again!
  • Batiste Dry Shampoo Tropical – Coconut & Exotic (200ml) (25-30 lei in farmaciile Sensiblu) – imi place acest sampon uscat si mirose uimitor! Lasa putin culoare alba pla radacina parului, dar sunt atenta sa-l perii bine si sa indepartez excesul. Il folosesc a doua si a treia zi dupa ce m-am spalat pe par, dar nu-mi place sa-l foloseasc mai mult de atat, incat nu cred ca poate face o treaba buna pe parul meu, dupa acel punct. Am, de asemenea, il folosesc pentru a obtine putin volum, considerand ca parul meu este foarte lung si fin si doar sta lins pe crestetul capului. Asa cum am mai spus, imi place mirosul pe care acesta il lasa in urma – nu e prea dulce (miroase fructat si proaspat) si dispare discret pe parcursul zilei. De asemenea, nu mi se pare ca interfereaza cu parfumul meu. Asadar, il voi cu siguranta il voi mai cumpara.
  • Batiste Dry Shampoo Brown – Dark & Deep (200ml) (aproximativ 30 lei in farmaciile Sensiblu) – este un sampon uscat pentru parul saten sau mai inchis. Acesta nu ar trebui sa lase in urma o pelicula, ar trebui sa se amestece frumos cu parul si sa absoarba excesul de ulei de la radacini. OK – pentru mine nu face nimic din toate aceste lucruri. Desigur, nu lasa o pelicula alba in urma (spray -ul este de culoare maro), dar lasa toata culoarea pe degete atunci cand amestecti produsului in par. Produsul nu face o treaba buna impotriva excesului de ulei – am impresia ca parul este mai murdar decat a fost inainte sa aplic produsul si imi vine sa-mi scarpin capul toata ziua. Mirosul nu este preferatul meu – este prea dulce pentru mine – si, de asemenea, nici nu am reusit tot produsul. Mai am mai putin de jumatate in tub, astfel incat cu siguranta spun ca nu-l voi mai cumpara acest produs vreodata!

rimmel stay matte poweder, garnier bb cream, bourjois 123 cc concealer, maybelline fit me concealer

  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder in the shade Transparent (£3.99) – I really like this powder. It matifies my skin without leaving it flat, it controls shine for about 4 hours, I don’t feel it on, but it’s not the best to travel with as the packaging is not too sturdy. I’ve hited major pan on this powder and I took it with me on a weekend away and you can see what happen when I arrived. This aspect wasn’t a deal breaker for me, though. I already bought this product and for the price I couldn’t ask for more.
  • Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One B.B. Blemish Balm Cream in the shade Light (50ml) (£9.99) – the scent is discrete and it doesn’t linger on throughout the day, it has an SPF 15, it’s creamy, blends in nicely, but needs powdering. Unfortunately the lightest shade is barely my summer-shade. Only then I can make it work on my. For this reason only I don’t think I’m going to buy it again (maybe if I’ll get tan one summer), especially considering that I’ve found a better shade in the Bourjois 123 Perfect Colour Correcting cream. If you have a darker skin tone than me and a skin type normal to dry, I highly recommend you to try it. PS: I’ve bought one for my mother (she doesn’t wear foundation) and she loves it.
  • Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Eye Cream Colour Correction in the shade Ivory (£7.99) – it’s more an under-eye illuminator than a concealer. It has a creamy consistency, has a silicone-type applicator that helps you place the product easily and the formula has a SPF 15 (which I was really happy about). The product wasn’t the best concealer I had. If I’ve had a longer night or I didn’t sleep well, the product couldn’t cover the result, but on days where I was rested was the best. Even so, I don’t see too much of a point on having too concealers – one for bad skin days and one for good skin days. I prefer to have a good one and that’s it, so I don’t think I’ll buy it again.
  • Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in the shade 10 Light (£5.99– I’m sure you all heard about this one. It’s suppose to be the best concealer and highly comparable to the NARS one. Well I don’t know about the comparison (as I don’t own the NARS concealer) but I can tell you for sure that I don’t find it to be the best under-eye concealer. I don’t like it because it sets into my fine lines like nobody’s business, even before I have a chance to set it with a powder. I’m 25 and I don’t have wrinkles yet, but this product manages to find lines that I can’t even find in the mirror. I have to admit that it works well on my blemishes but considering that I have one once a month, I don’t think I need a special concealer for that. I’ll just put extra foundation on it and hope for the best and it doesn’t bother me if it peeks through a bit. I think you all can imagine that I won’t buy it again.
  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder in nuanta Transparent (10 lei pe aoro – cred ca in magazine costa 20-25 lei) – imi place foarte mult aceasta pudra. Acesta imi matifieaza pielea fara sa o faca plata, controleaza stralucire timp de aproximativ 4 ore, nu-o simt pe piele, dar nu este cel mai bun produs pentru calatorie din cauza ambalajului care nu este prea calitativ. Am consumat aproape toata pudra, am luat cu mine sa o mai folosesc de cateva ori intr-un weekend in care am plecat din oras si puteti vedea in fotografie ce s-a intamplat cand am ajuns. Totusi acest aspect nu m-a dezamagit atat de tare incat sa nu-mi mai doresc din nou pudra, asa ca deja am cumparat-o si o folosesc cu drag si spor, mai ales ca pentru pret nu cred ca poti sa ceri mai mult.
  • Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One B.B. Blemish Balm Cream in nuanta Light (50ml) (35 lei -Auchan, DM, Kaufland etc)- mirosul produsului este discret si nu-l vei simtii toata ziua pe piele, are un factor de protectie solara de 15, este cremos, se intinde usor pe piele, dar are nevoie sa fie fixat cu pudra. Din pacate, cel mai deschisa nuanta abia reuseste sa mi se potriveasca in perioada verii. Doar atunci reusesc sa fac acest BB cream sa functioneza pentru mine. De aceea, nu cred ca am de gand sa mai cumpar aceasta crema (poate daca voi reusi sa ma bronzez suficient intr-o vara), mai ales avand in vedere ca am gasit o nuanta mai buna la Bourjois 123 Perfect Colour Correcting cream. Daca aveti pielea mai inchisa decat mine si este normala spre uscata, va recomand sa incercati acest produs. PS: Am cumparat aceasta crema pentru mama mea (ea nu purta fond de ten) si pur si simplu o adora.
  • Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Eye Cream Colour Correction in the shade Ivory (33 lei pe shopmania) – e mai mult un iluminator pentru zona de sub ochi decat un anticearcan. Are o consistența cremoasa, un aplicator de tip silicon, care va ajuta sa plasati produsul foarte usor, iar formula are un factor de protectie de 15 (am fost foarte fericita cand am vazut acest lucru). Produsul nu a fost cel mai bun concealer pe care l-am avut. Daca am avut o noapte lunga sau nu am dormit bine, produsul nu a putut acoperi rezultatul, dar in zilele in care am fost odihnita, produsul arata grozav pe pielea mea. Totusi, nu vad prea mult sens sa am doua anticearcane – unul pentru zile “obosite” si unul pentru zile “odihnite”. Am prefera sa am unul si bun, deci nu cred cred ca il voi mai cumpara din nou.
  • Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in nuanta 10 Light (29 lei pe aoro – eu de aici mi l-am cumparat. Din cate stiu nu se gaseste in magazine) – sunt convinsa ca toate ati mai auzit despre acest produs. Se presupune a fi cel mai bun concealer si foarte comparabil cu cel de la NARS. Ei bine, eu nu stiu despre comparatia cu NARS (considerand ca nu-l detin), dar pot sa va spun cu siguranta ca nu mi se pare a fi cel mai bun concealer pentru zona de sub ochi. Nu-mi place, pentru ca intra in liniile fine, inainte de a avea o sansa sa-l setez cu pudra. Am 25 de ani si inca nu am riduri, dar acest produs reuseste sa gasească linii care eu nu pot gasi in oglinda marita. Trebuie sa recunosc ca acesta functioneaza bine pe cosuri, dar avand in vedere ca am unul o data pe luna, nu cred ca am nevoie de un concealer special pentru asta. Voi pune doar fond de ten in plus pe cos si sper sa fie suficient (nu-mi bat prea tare capul daca se mai vede putin). Cred ca va puteti imagina ca nu voi mai cumpara acest concealer.

hugo boss boss woman orange eau de toilette

  • Hugo Boss Boss Orange Eau de Toilette for her (30ml) (£32) – I don’t know how to describe perfumes so I copied the description, which I believe to be accurate: “BOSS Orange Woman is a warm passionate fragrance that combines the uniquely liberating notes of crispy apple and white florals with a vanilla and sandalwood heart. They fuse to create a warm, inviting and free-spirited scent, that you can wear with passion.” I had it for 2 years and a half and I love the scent, especially for the wintertime as it’s a bit more on the heavy side. It lasts really well on my skin even if I don’t have the greatest pH for perfumes and considering that this was an eau de toilette says a lot about it. I’m really impressed with it and I plan to buy it again, but I already have a nice perfume and next on my list is Chloe.
  • Hugo Boss Boss Orange Eau de Toilette pentru femei (30ml) (94 lei pe aoro) – nu stiu sa descriu parfumuri, aaa ca am copiat descrierea, cu care sunt complet de acord: “BOSS Orange Woman este un parfum cald pasionat, care combina notele unicice eliberatoare de mere crocante si flori albe cuvanilie si inima din lemn de santal. Notele fuzioneza pentru a crea un parfum cald, primitor si senzatia de spirit liber, pe care le puteti purta cu pasiune.” Am avut parfumul timp de 2 ani si jumatate si-mi place foarte mult mirosul, in special iarna pentru ca este putin mai greu. Dureaza foarte bine pe pielea mea, chiar daca nu am cea mai bun pH-ul pentru parfumuri si avand in vedere ca aceasta a fost o apa de toaleta spune multe despre produs. Sunt foarte impresionat de ea si am de gand s-o cumpar din nou, dar am deja un parfum frumos si urmatorul pe lista mea este Chloe.

rimmel 60 seconds, maybelline colorama, l'oreal color rich, miss sporty

Nail polishes. Attention! I always use base coat and top coat. Also I wash my dishes and I like hot showers.

  • Cairou nail polish shade 3926 (12 ml) – it’s a black nail polish, it lasts maximum 2 days on my nails and I bought it from a Chinese store.
  • Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish in the shade 320 Rapid Ruby (8 ml) (£2.99) – it’s a dark red nail polish and it lasts approximately 3 days.
  • Maybelline Color Show  Nail Polish in the shade 26 (7 ml) (£2.99) – it’s a pink nail polish and it lasts maximum 2 days.
  • Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish in the shade 200 Princess Pink (8 ml) (£2.99) – it’s a pinky-nude nail polish and it lasts at least 4 days.
  • Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish in the shade 842 Too Cool To Tango (8 ml) (£2.99) – it’s an awesome turquoise shade and it lasts approximately 4 days.
  • L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Nails in the shade 852 Pistachio Drage (5ml) (£4.99) – the shade is soooo beautiful but the nail polish lasts maximum 1 day on my nails. I have another shade from L’Oreal and that one it’s the same. L’Oreal nail polish are expensive, little and poor quality, so I won’t buy them ever again.
  • miss sporty Nail Expert Base & Top Coat Glossy Nails (8 ml) – it’s an OK base and top coat. Not the best, but it prolongs my nail polish.

Lacuri de unghii. Atentie! Folosesc mereu un base coat si un top coat. De asemenea, spal vasele si imi plac dusurile calde.

  • Cairou nail polish shade 3926 (12 ml) (4 lei) – este un lac de unghii negru, rezista maxim 2 zile de unghiile mele si l-am cumparat de la un magazin chinezesc.
  • Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish in the shade 320 Rapid Ruby (8 ml) (9 lei – Achan, DM) -este o oja de culoare rosu inchis si rezista aproximativ 3 zile.
  • Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish  in the shade 26  (7 ml) (10 lei – Achan, DM) – este o oja roz si rezista maxim 2 zile.
  • Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish in the shade 200 Princess Pink (8 ml) (9 lei – Achan, DM) – este o oja de culoare roz-nud si rezista cel putin 4 zile pe unghiile mele.
  • Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish in the shade 842 Too Cool To Tango (8 ml – Achan, DM) – este o nuanta turcoaz minunat si dureaza aproximativ 4 zile.
  • L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Nails in the shade 852 Pistachio Drage (5ml – Achan, DM) – este o nuanta ataaaaaaat de frumoasa, dar rezista pe unghiile mele o zi. Mai am inca o nuanta de la L’Oreal si aceea se comporta la fel. Sunt scumpe, au cantitate mica si calitate slaba, deci sigur nu le voi mai cumpara.
  • miss sporty Nail Expert Base & Top Coat Glossy Nails (8 ml – Achan, DM) – este o baza si un top coat OK. Nu este cel mai bun, dar prelungeste lacul de unghii.

PS: I’m not paid by anyone to attach the links in this article, but I thought that in case you don’t want to go shopping at the mall, you can purchase them online (I personally really like to do this). Attention! You’ll find different prices depending on the stores you’re buying from, or the country you’re in.

That’s it from me. Did you try any of these products? What was your opinion on them?

PS: Nu sunt platita de nimeni sa atasez link-urile din acest articol, dar am considerat ca in cazul in care nu aveti pofta sa iesiti la shopping in mall, puteti sa va faceti cumparaturile online (mie cel putin imi place foarte mult sa fac asta). Atentie! Veti putea gasi preturi diferite in functie de magazinul din care cumparati sau de tara din care sunteti.

Cam atat de la mine. Ait incercat careva din aceste produse? Care a fost opinia voastra despre ele?
