Liquid -Clinique -Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer

First off, im very surprised this doesnt have an overall better rating. But for those disappointed perhaps this may help. (Please note prior to this i used glo minerals, tom ford, sisley, dior...i spare no expense when it comes to my makeup base, and in fact usually never even think to try clinique as generally i think of it as "ehh")

THIS LOOKS INCREDIBLY SKINLIKE AND NATURAL . Its almost on par with tom ford's traceless perfecting but with more coverage. However there are a few pointers i would suggest to get that flawless look.

1. Moisturize!!! I use an antioxidant face oil. But just make sure skin is well prepped.

2. #55 sephora brush to apply. Even though you may be looking for more coverage as i am to cover hyperpigmenration, a fluffy brush meant for buffing is best even if the brush is made for sheer coverage. In fact the thicker the base youre working with the more sheer you want the brush coverage to be, and vice versa, in order to get a flawless rather than cakey result. This covers a lot so you wont likely need too many layers, but layer if you need more.

3. Dot the areas if your face that need most coverage, then take buffing brush (i loooove sephora's cult favorite #55!!!) And stipple on the the areas you dotted the product and blend by buffing or continuing to stipple outward from the center of the product.

Voila!! Flawless. Also if you have hyperpigmentation try a shade that is slightly more W (golden) or rosier if gold is too yellow rather than your true color to counter balance the grey look of the pigmentation showing through. Covers better and also doesnt require as much product. Likewise if you suffer from redness do that opposite and look for something with more neutral or olive undertones to counter balance thw pink/red hues.

Mascara -Canmake -Quick Lash Curler

I have the transparent version, not black.
Not a mascara per se, this helps me if I'm wearing false lashes and want a more secure hold. The wand is a simple shallow toothed comb, to use it you do exactly as you would with a standard mascara. It's marketed with claims about creating easy curled lashes, even without curling them first. This I disagree with - it won't magically make your lashes defy gravity. I'm also unconvinced over its purported abilty to refresh curl, although used after an eyelash curler it will hold that curl. However, as it's transparent, it's much harder to get black mascara all over the place.

As mentioned above, this is great for false eyelash wear, it secures the fibres to my own lashes without overloading them with thick cakey mascara, While this isn't 100% waterproof, it is water resistant and doesn't wreak havoc on my contact lenses. A far better product than the price might suggest.

Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand -Stratia - Fortify

I have combo dehydrated skin and this oil might be too heavy to use in the mornings. It also breaks me out if using plenty so I try to add just a single drop to my night moisturizer in order to boost my hydration levels. It does leave plumpy skin but takes forever to sink in.

Masks -Avon -Clearskin Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Mask

This is the best mask Avon has to offer. My skin looks cleaner after using this mask. It takes 10-15 minutes for this mask to dry. It's black at first then turns gray.

Scrubs -Avon -Clearskin Pore Penetrating Invigorating Scrub

This scrub is excellent but I'm not a fan of the cooling feeling. I could use this if I lived on the equator.

Liquid -L'Oreal -True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

on 7/14/2018 9:37:00 PM

My bottle was a gift a 'Look Good Feel Better' cancer event. The colour D3-W3 was given rather than chosen. It is a little orange for me as I am pinker based. As for coverage, (note I usually wear tinted moisturizers) I would say medium. It covers pigmentation and a red capillary almost but not fully. I could get away without concealer except under my eyes. I feel my skin looks a little dull (my skin is the same colour all over) but this could be as I usually wear a sheerer finish. Pores around my nose have that 'dotty' look. This colour is too dark for my favourite blusher Benefit Dandelion. I'm going to give it a few more goes as I'm not used to a foundation. Also, it is currently winter in Australia so it may be a better colour match useful later in the year. Will alter review after more use.

Liquid -Avon -Extralasting Foundation SPF 12

It does last a while on my skin but it turns red after a while. I got this shade in Pure Beige. It's a shame, I am looking for a foundation that isn't super expensive but it seems like only expensive foundations work well on me.


Masks -No Brand (DIY or homemade) -Yogurt Mask

Was seriously amazed as the result, left it on for 30 minutes and felt skin flaking off after. Followed up with a rich moisturiser and felt like a whole new person.

Styling Products -Davines -OI / All in One Milk

on 7/14/2018 8:27:00 PM

Performance wise this stuff is awesome if used on dry hair. It does all it was promised to do softens, detangles, controls frizz, and it has long-term benefits of conditioning my always dry porous hair.
If I apply it on wet hair (the same 4-5 spritz) and let it air dry my hair is too greasy for my liking.
The smell of this thing is what made me toss it away. It has the unbearably strong scent of essential oils mixed together, and the scent lingers till the next wash (two days for my hair).
Davines is the second brand whos scent I can't tolerate, the first one was Aveda. I know how many people love Aveda scent, so I thought it worth mention.
If you don't like essential oils you won't be able to tolerate this product.

Treatments (Face) -Sunday Riley -U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil

foto

I bought the Sunday Riley Space Race kit to try out the Saturn mask, but was pretty curious about this oil as well. Most Sunday Riley products contain fragrant ingredients that are automatically a no-go for my skin, but the reviews of this made me think this could be one product that would work for me. Unfortunately, it didn't do much beyond make some small pimples itchy and swell a bit, or nothing at all. Considering how sensitive my skin is, the reaction could have been much worse, so I think there are enough soothing ingredients in here to make a difference for folks without such reactive skin. Didn't do anything in terms of sebaceous filaments on my nose or chin either way. I actually don't mind the smell, it smells like a nice herb garden to me, but I can see why some people have a strong dislike of it. The packaging was beautiful, but this just didn't seem to be doing much of anything for me.
