  1. Hello,

    I just popped round by accident because I was looking for a brush.
    But thank heavens now I know what I will buy for my wife’s birthday next month.
    She loves cleansing waters like that ones.
    Thank you for this nice article!

    Best regards,

  2. This article is exactly what I have been looking for! I am really a novice when it comes to makeup and I have never worn much of it throughout my life, mostly because I’m just too lazy to put in the work of putting it on. But I do like to wear simple things like foundation and mascara when I go to parties or events.

    I really want to try a new foundation because the kind I currently use doesn’t seem to last long enough for me throughout the day. But of course, I’m not rolling in the dough so I can’t just pick up a bunch of different expensive makeup products to test them out. So thank you for doing it for me and reporting the results! I am going to give the NYX foundation a try because that price is amazing. If it works for me I will be so happy!
