Highlighters -Bourjois -Sculpt Light Strobing Highlighter

Normally I'm a fan of Bourjois' products, they are a cut above most drugstore bands in my opinion, but this really didn't work for me. I love Bourjois' pink toned highlighters - the brow highlight pencil and the cream highlight in the brow palettes are a very pale baby pink that flatters my skin tone, so I thought I'd love this too as it has the same pink tone in it. It actually does look nice on provided you can find a way to blend it effectively, and it starts to set quickly. I just about managed with a wedge sponge and stamping it on, but when I tried to apply over foundation with fingers or blend it into the base make-up, it starts to pill and almost "peel" at the edges, it's like this film sat on top of foundation. Sadly, when it pills, it takes any foundation or powder it was resting on top of, resulting in a smudged and patchy mess that will necessitate taking off my foundation and doing it all over again. The gaps it leaves are too big to simply retouch.

I love the colour, I just really wish the formula was better.


Liquid -RIMMEL -Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

A great every day foundation if you have normal/oily skin. I use 010 - light Porcelain which is pink in the tube but blends nicely to look natural on my face. The mousse formula dries to a VERY matte finish (even more matte than my Maybelline Matte + Poreless), so only use this if you have oily or normal skin - avoid this if you have dry or mature skin. Do not layer this on because it will look extra cakey - instead use a thin layer and blend it well, which will provide the same coverage as a BB cream. I think this product was meant for oily skin or someone looking for minimal coverage.


Mascara -Isehan -KissMe Heroine Make Volume and Curl Mascara Black

I love this stuff! I have straight lashes that can’t keep a curl and this stuff is eyelash crack! I’ve tried so many different brands of mascara and nothing holds the curl like this stuff. I also use the long and curl mascara and find both to be very similar. The applicator is more curved on the long & curl and volume & curl is a straight applicator. The applicator is small so it fits in your hand and easy to maneuver and apply. The applicator brush is small so it gets between the lashes. I usually add one layer as it is dry in prob less than 39 seconds, It doesnt smudge and the curl lasts all day as its waterproof. Removing it is so simple with dabbing some coconut oil on a flat cotton pad. I’ve never had an issue. I’m so glad I discovered this as the struggle was real being a straight lash girl with hooded eyes! Lol

Mascara -COVERGIRL -Lash Blast

I have very straight short lashes and need waterproof mascara. Been using this product for about 4-5 years and the curl lasted all day until recently. I bought it again summer 2018 and it seems that they must have changed the ingeredients as the curl didn’t last. Used it a few times and every time it was the same result. I don’t like the thick bottle and applicator wand. It’s hard to maneuver. Not sure why Covergirl has such thick mascara bottles. Mascara bottles and applicators should be long and sleek for easier handling. I only bought it because of the price and usually stock up when it was on sale. It worked fine and worked on my straight lashes. I will not be buying this again as it doesn’t keep the curl and the black colour is not intense enough. I will go back to my Japanese Heroine brand as it’s a little more expensive but it does the job!


Blush -MILANI -Rose Powder Blush - Romantic Rose

foto

One of my top favorite blushes. This is goldilocks of blush - it's a neutral color and not too dark nor light. I wear bronzer and like neutral blushes that don't clash with my the rest of my makeup and overpower my face. Super cheap on Amazon (especially considering it's .60 ounces as most blushes I buy are a lot less product in the packaging). I found the application great - goes on smooth and not patchy at all. I do think this product is better for lighter skin tones, and you have a deeper complexion. I will definitely repurchase as I seldom like the blushes I buy.

Deodorants -Dove -Dry Spray Antiperspirant - All

I was really hoping to like this product, but it was awful! It was really greasy, and it left very weird chunks of stuff on my armpits. I bought this in the lavender, and it definitely did NOT smell like lavender. It stunk. I ended up returning this to the Walgreens where I purchased it. Will not purchase again.


Bronzers -MAC Cosmetics -Matte Bronze

I am c1 to c2 nc20ish and this blends into my cheeks seamlessly. It doesnt look orange or muddy. Ive always had trouble finding a good bronzer. I dont contour, i simply just use this to warm up my skin. Id put this on my neck(if i am using c2 in face and body and it can be a tad dark so i use this bronzer to make my neck and chest match my face.) I also use this on the outside perimeters of my cheeks and some on the forehead. Basically "where the sun hits". I like that this is matte and does not have any shine or shimmer. I like how this makes me look more tan without it looking fake or too harsh.

This has become my everyday staple to help match my summer foundation to my neck. I dont want to get another shade for winter so my trick is to use this bronzer so i dont look like my face is darker than my chest. It adds color in a subtle way because its not super pigmented so its buildable and layerable to your preference. If its too harsh, you can mess up a lot faster and easier. Ive tried and hated hoola lite bronzer. That one had so much kickup and it just didnt look good on me. I much prefer this. Id recommend.

Bronzers -COVERGIRL -Copper Radiance

I love this bronzer, because it has a nice cool undertone, without being overly pink. The shimmer in this is subtle, and creates a beautiful soft glow. I use this as both my bronzer and blush, and never feel like I need any more color than this provides. The compact size makes it great for makeup bags, and the included brush actually gets the job done for on the go. BTW, this is identical to the discontinued CG Tanfastic bronzer in Solstice, which came in a larger pan size (and I wish was still sold). I am happy that CG removed the fragrance and irritating oils from their Cheekers line, because this now smells like nothing! Would repurchase!

Powder -Lancôme -Teint Miracle Natural Light Creator SPF20

on 10/15/2018 7:11:00 PM

My skin is too pale, even though my hair and eyes are dark, so it's hard for me to find the right color, so i need a sheer - medium coverage foundation. It's creamy but not oily, it's easy to melt, it doesn't get dry so fast so you can't correct it,(that's the reason why I hated Dior Forever). The result, it gives skin a luminous finish, the coverage is buildable, I use Beige albatre tone, you can wear powder and blush over it and you still look fresh. I like it, I'll buy it again for sure, but I need to try more products to say that it's my favourite.
