I remember when I have just launched Makeup4all [almost] 8 years ago now, I would check the analytics every day, sometimes even more than once. As Metallica’s song goes “Sad But True”. But lately I check the analytics maybe once a month just to see what features you loved the most to make some conclusions for the upcoming posts.
And here are actually 16 most viewed posts of 2016, and I have included only the features about the products that are still available. I was actually surprised to see the most popular review of 2016 was of a Rouge Bunny Rouge eye pencil. They have recently launched a new shade, so I better write up about it soon.
I was also a bit surprised to see that Max Factor reviews got a ridiculous amount of views, and I really did not expect that. But, to be honest, I am happy, as I have a very special love for Max Factor, not only it was the brand I used to buy as a teenager with my first earned money but also, it was the first brand I have ever worked with for Makeup4all, not to mention the history of the brand, so I am happy that the reviews of their products get so many views, I genuinely love so many of them.

It’s time for February favourites, and considering that I was sick for 10+ days in the shortest month of the year, there isn’t that much to show. But here are the products that really stood out to me.
Soap & Glory Whipped Clean Shower Butter (review)
Moisturising shower product that smells of almonds, pistachios and vanilla. Oh, yes! It is an instant cheer-me-up and works great for shaving, too.
Kerastase Mousse Bouffante Luxurious Volumising Mousse
I’ve been on a hunt for a new product for voluminous hair for some time now, and this is the one I’ve picked up, as mentioned here. I was a bit worried, as I haven’t used a mousse in more than 10 years but this one really delivers. Mousse Bouffante creates beautiful big hair without being sticky or making the hair look or feel greasy.
Uriage Gyn-Phy Intimate Hygiene Protective Cleansing Gel
Probably the best product for intimate hygiene I’ve ever used, it is gentle but effective, smells really nice and is a great way to start and finish the day with. We talk so much about facial cleansers and shower gels but not enough about the intimate washes. And this is a great one, go get it.
Maybelline Master Smoky Shadow Pencil in Smoky Chocolate (Review and Swatches)
I have re-discovered my
Here are some beauty and makeup products I’ve picked up in February. This is an overview of the things that I buy, and a place where you can share about your newest purchases. And, of course, stay tuned for reviews of the products in the future.
Artdeco Long Lasting Liquid Eyeliner in Black 01
Ever since Rouge Bunny Rouge changed the nib of my favourite eye liner, I am on a hunt for a prefect replacement, as it was the one I used pretty much every day. This time I’ve got the ArtDeco one, and it looked almost identical on-line, but unfortunately it is not in real life. However, it is a good one and I hope I will enjoy using it.
Orly Nail Defence Strengthening Protein Treatment
After a very bad experience at a nail salon (this is what happens when you cheat on your manicurist who works far from both your home and work) – I really need to restore my nails, and this
I have proclaimed my love for Kerastase products numerous times already, but here it is again.
This time it is all about Specifique Bain Stimuliste GL Energizing Shampoo for Thinning Hair which I have already included in my favourites in the previous month.
When I was looking for a new Kerastase shampoo, I’ve noticed that this one was among the best sellers and I also read several great reviews. Moreover, Specifique Bain Stimuliste GL Energizing Shampoo includes Agrigine + Gluco Lipid and is formulated for thinning hair. I don’t necessarily have thinning hair but it sheds more than I’d like to, so this is the reason why I’ve decided to choose this one.
I may have looked up “How many hairs do you lose in a day?”… “Losing up to 100 hairs a day is normal. But if hair loss runs in your family, you could lose a lot more hair.”
I know, I know…
So, what about this
