This comes in an non SPF Too. I got that 1 for personal reasons but this stuff is good with miracle boost serum & ultimate eye cream. With that being said this is wayyyyy overpriced. I will buy the pink beauty fluid next time. I really prefer Clinique DDML & it’s similarly priced well live and learn. I don’t know if I would repurchase its like $28 on sale ok the saying “a fool & her money part ways”........I just got this because I saw glowing models on tv but it doesn’t work like that. Ugh... I think I will go back to Clinique DDML when I finish this.


Mascara -E.L.F. -Studio 3-in-1 Mascara (Lengthen, Define & Volumize)

It well................... i like the wand brush. ....

At first i liked it. it not really wet and that was a good thing and it hold true to where it stayed all day and you can make it as dramatic or natural as you want. No length but that not something I care for too much as my natural lashes are long enough.

Problem.......the removal was scary and weird. i thought I might lose my lashes! It like plastic! No wonder it smudge free. took almost 40 minutes to remove and Im sure some was still there. My lashes stayed clump together the following day. So i put oil on my lashes all day and by my night shower I was able to complete rid my lashes of it.

The brush design is the only thing i like and love. I kept the brush and thrown out the rest. I love the conception of the nearly already "dry" mascara thing but using this stuff everyday. is a no recommend from me.

It was only a dollar...but never again


Lipstick -Revlon -Ultra HD Gel Lip Color

Somewhere between lipstick and gloss. Opaque, smooth and lightweight. I got Dessert and Sand, both beautiful ‘my lips but better’ colours. Very moisturising and the moisture lasts even when it’s worn off. The fragrance doesn’t bother me, it’s kind of fruity, although I much prefer vanilla type scents. Better than some high end brands without the extortionate cost. Highly recommend!


Treatments (Face) -Peter Thomas Roth -Retinol Fusion PM

I use a few drops every night and I would say it will last about 4 months. The texture feels silky, almost oily - but its not oily and it absorbs quickly.
Of all the serums I have tried - NIOD, Skinceuticals, Caudalie, Medik8, The Ordinary, Dennis Gross - this is my favourite. My skin responds well to it and I've not experienced any adverse side effects.


Concealers -Bourjois -Radiance reveal

Gorgeous for dry undereyes. I have dry skin and this sits under my eyes lovely and brightens quite well. I set it with bare minerals well rested powder concealer and find this is such a perfect combination. Packaging is cute but a bit of concealer does get stuck at the top of the tube. Lasts for ever however as only need a few dots under the eyes.


Foundations -Bourjois -123 Perfect CC Cream

Just love this. I switched from loreal true match as it was looking very dry on my skin coming up to the winter. Been using this for about 2 months and this is honestly amazing from normal/drier skin In the winter. Definitely looks very smooth. Not sure it looks luminous but just looks like a very smooth natural skin. Feels so lightweight on the face and lasts all day when setting it with a bit of translucent powder. Just wish there were more shade options. I have ivory and this is a tiny bit light in the winter but with a tan would be ok.

Eye Shadow -Unlisted Brand -Winky Lux- Kitten Palette

on 11/23/2017 2:47:00 PM

I haven't purchased anything from Winky Lux until they recently came to Ulta Beauty. I bought some of their lipsticks as well as the Kitten Palette. This is a unique palette in that there are several different finishes and a nice variety of colors. I must say that the matte colors are a little crumbly and have a little fallout. The biggest thing I've noticed with this palette is you MUST use an eyeshadow primer, and even with an eyeshadow primer this fades throughout the day, just a little slower with a primer. I like that there is a shade transformer color and the gold and teal colors in this palette are pretty spectacular looking. Overall, for the price of this palette it is a decent deal... just use primer! My more detailed video review and swatches are here:




Primer/ Corrector -Revlon -YOUTH FX™ FILL + BLUR PRIMER FOR FACE/NECK

on 11/23/2017 2:46:00 PM

It's the cusp of winter, and my face is starting to get a little drier, so I'm upping my moisturizing products game. I picked up the Revlon YOuth FX Primer this week and thought that it would do well after my gel moisturizer and BB cream. Alas, I added a small amount to the area over my eye lids and under my eyes, a little on my crows feet, and another small dab on my nose, and they started to burn. I'm not sure entirely what's in the product to make it burn, but it was not pleasant.

I quickly removed the product and put it away for a couple of days. Tried it again, only this time the product went on without any other products to see if it was a reaction. Nope, still burned like a mofo. Gritted my teeth through it and added some blush over it on my cheeks and a light sweep of eyeshadow over top and some translucent powder. Took about 5 minutes before the burning stopped. But it was not pleasant. I've thrown the bottle out and will not be buying another.

Do not recommend.

TL;DR: Causes burning sensation wherever applied.


Deodorants -Malin & Goetz -Eucalyptus Deodorant

on 11/23/2017 2:46:00 PM

I completely agree with the other reviewer. I had seen nothing but good reviews for this before I bought it, and having now used it I can't understand why it's so raved about. My experience is very similar to the previous reviewer's. I don't sweat much and haven't felt sticky or sweaty at all while using it, but I don't smell good! It's not a strong bad smell (like I experienced with Lush's The Greench deodorant powder) but it's unpleasant. I have tried other aluminium-free deodorants successfully (Dr Hauschka Sage & Mint worked for me but took an inconveniently long time to dry) so I don't think the problem is that it's a natural deodorant. Just so annoyed that I fell for the hype and spent £18 on this.

Treatments (Face) -Shiseido -Ultimune

I would buy it again if Shiseido would take some bad ingredients off! This is the result of 20 years of research and what do we find? Methylparaben inside and not only that. As someone here also underlined, this is quite disappointing. The price also is sky high. I got a 15 ml bottle at 39.00 euros and it lasted about 2 months. I used for the morning and night skincare, after the toner and before the moisturiser. I have to confess I liked it, I liked the scent, I liked the texture, the feeling on my skin. My skin was most probably brighter and I now can say I can see the difference since when I stopped using it. Nevertheless I think it is not worth the price and as said I find unacceptable such a massive use of parabens.
