Mascara -Lancome - Monsieur Big Volume Mascara

on 10/19/2017 3:44:00 PM


Disliked it a lot. Got it on sale for 15 euro and even that was to much. Its gunky and gummy textured, practically impossible to remove. Worst of all it doesnt look anything special. It doesnt harden so thats a good thing..

Cleansers -CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser

on 10/19/2017 3:37:00 PM


This has been my go to cleanser for years. It's cheap, works well and doesn't irritate or dry out my combo/oily skin. I use it both on its own or to follow up after and oil cleanser on makeup heavy days. Will continue to repurchase.

Eyeliner -Inglot - Matte Collection AMC Eyeliner Gel

This is the eyeliner I've been searching for all my life. It doesn't budge, it goes on like a dream, my wings have never been sharper.

Treatments (Face) -Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10 Zinc 1

on 10/19/2017 3:18:00 PM


This product, and the entire ordinary range, are killing it. I've been fighting with acne since I was 11 (am 30 now) and after a month of using this my skin is noticeably different. I can't lie, I still get pimples of course, but a combination of having changed my diet (goodbye forever dairy) and this product has changed it so much: I get pimples way less often, they are smaller, less red, less inflamed, and last less long. I also use their caffeine undereye serum, granactive retinoid 2% in squalene at night, foundation, and high-adherence primer. would highly recommend this product, the retinoid, and the foundation, and the other 2 I'm using are also great.

Cleansers -CeraVe - Hydrating Cleanser

on 10/19/2017 2:57:00 PM


Liked how it did not dry out my sensitive tret treated skin. Loved that it was pH balanced and great price for a large amount of product. Very much DIDNT like that I finally tracked down the reason for a long cystic breakout to this product. May work well for others - unfortunately, though, not for me.

Liquid -Giorgio Armani - Luminous Silk Foundation

on 10/19/2017 1:50:00 PM


Oh I'm going to add to what so many have already said. I too had such high hopes for this Foundation. The foundation does what it says which is that it Glides on smoothly, buildable coverage with a luminous glow. My complexion with this makeup looked absolutely stunning. I was just so amazed, even in the Sun! But that is where my love affair ended. Like others, I had a reaction. My face started itching at the end of the day to the point where I ran home to take the makeup off. With everyone else's reviews on breakouts and reactions to this Foundation, there was no way I was going to try it for another day as my skin just cleared up from a bad hormonal Breakout.

Fragrances -Paco Rabanne - Black XS for Her

on 10/19/2017 1:44:00 PM


There are elements of this perfume that I do appreciate - I like that it's not too floral but more of a gourmand, unisex fragrance for lack of better words. On paper, this would be right up my alley, but it's been standing mostly untouched in my bathroom cupboard for so, so long. Every now and then I spray it on, hoping in vain that it will have grown on me.. I think the problem to me is that it smells so synthetic. The notes of vanilla and cocoa smells nothing like they do in other gourmand perfumes, for example in Mugler's perfumes. Speaking of Mugler - I feel like this is a poor and unbalanced attempt at an Angel-esque perfume. Everything in this perfume smells synthetic and quite frankly pretty cheap, there are no clear notes, and it doesn't settle down nicely on the skin. I am finally getting rid of this one, which I probably should've done a long time ago.

+ Relatively cheap
+ Not the typical flower bomb - I appreciate the attempt at a "darker" perfume

- Tested on animals
- Not well-balanced
- Smells very synthetic

Lips -Jordana - Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain

on 10/19/2017 1:39:00 PM


Jordana was on BOGO at Walgreens, so I got 2 colors for only $4.49 (reg. $2.99/each)! Amazing price, especially because of how good the formula is! I was using a $9 Neutrogena gloss balm prior to this (and lost it), and the cheapness in me decided to try these out rather than repurchase the Neutrogena one, and I am so glad I did. The 2 colors I have are "01 Nude Chic" and "05 Honey Love". They are both beautiful, very wearable-with-just-about-everything kind of shades. "Nude Chic" has a muted mauve undertone with soft shimmer, and "Honey Love" is a lovely neutral medium rose with soft shimmer. I have chronically chapped/dry lips, and these are surprisingly hydrating with a soft glossy finish. They smell good too, a subtle/sweet scent. Color lasts well, and the stain part does not turn bright/horrendous like other "stains" have on me. So glad I gave these a shot!

Liquid -Koh Gen Do - Aqua Foundation

on 10/19/2017 1:27:00 PM


I saved my money and I was so excited to try this Foundation. I have been eyeing it for quite some time and after watching review after review on YouTube I finally splurged and bought it. For starters I went with the color 123 thinking that it would match my nc25 to 27 winter skin. I tend to go with neutral foundation colors as really warm colors tend to pull too Yellow on me. The color itself is a nice neutral undertone to it but the color is way too light on my skin. Secondly, due to living in a very dry climate and my body going through a lot of hormonal changes, my skin tends to be on the dry side lately. After reading the reviews I thought for sure this would be great for dry skin.

So on to the application. First I dotted the foundation on my face and blended it out with a beauty blender. That did not work. It seemed splotchy and hard to blend which is very odd because everyone Raves how it Blends like a dream. So I tried to put primer underneath and used a blending brush. This time I had more luck but still thought it was pretty hard to blend. You can definitely build it to a medium coverage which I like, but I still have found that the more product I added, the more pale I looked.

When it comes to wear it held up alright.

All in all, it was super hard to blend for me into my dry skin. It made me look more pale than I am. And for the price it just did not wow me. I find that bourjois healthy mix does a much better job. I have to blend Shades 53 and 54 to get the right color so i didn't want to spend the extra money having to blend two foundations. However at 16.99 each, it's a steal comparatively speaking to this.

Sorry ladies I really tried to love it but didn't.
