Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay -All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

Here is what may be a loophole to the 'dry textured' look a lot of users are experiencing with this spray - If you have oilier skin/use moisturizing oils under your makeup, this spray won't make you look bad afterwards. On drier days (in deep winter) when I did not use oils on my face, and after spraying this on top of my foundation, it definitely looked unpleasant and dried out.

However, after the weather warmed up and I was also using moisturizing oils, this spray worked fine with my makeup, there was no dry textured look. Longevity overall is great, at least I found, and after a full working day my makeup did not run at all + was pretty much intact. I have tried other sprays (Smashbox, MAC, Caudalie, etc.) that do not give you a dry textured look, but they don't keep your makeup "sealed in" like this one does.

Eye Shadow -Urban Decay -Born To Run Eye Shadow Palette

foto

i don't get the bad critics i read here for this palette...
this is THA BEST palette i ever had, and i have a lot, most of them high end, the second best, beeing sultry by ABH.
SUPERB color selection, UNBELIEVABLE pigmentation, perfect blending (i applied with my fingers when i unboxed it, and it was great!). it really has all the colors you dream of heaving, running away...
i ll take it with me when i will...
great big mirror. i miss a good two ended brush so as to be perfect. i am a little worried because it has a light magnetic closing. i dont know whether it could open in a bag. for the time being, i keep it in the box.

Concealers -Maybelline New York -Fit Me Concealer

This concealer works great for my under eyes, it's not drying and it has a light to medium coverage which I personally prefer for everyday makeup. I wouldn't use this to cover blemishes since the coverage isn't that great and the formula is kind of moisturizing. The big downside of this product is the packaging. The black paint rubs off and a lot of product comes out because the lid isn't sealed properly. I've stained a lot of makeup bags because of it and my hands are always dirty with concealer when I use it.


Lipstick -Sephora Collection -Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick (All Shades)

Best matte lip product I've used, I love it - colour 98.

HOWEVER, there's only 5ml which is not enough, especially for the price.
AND Sephora isnt available in the UK which is ridiculous.



Lotions/ Creams -CeraVe -Moisturizing Cream

This review is for the dry/very dry formula.

Cetaphil changed my life about 10 years ago. Back then the U.K. didnt even sell the brand so I had to order from a special website/the U.S. I recently purchased this cream and the hydrating cleanser to see how it compares.

I'm not a fan of matte creams, I like my skin/face to be shiny so i know there is product on my skin!
This product is very matte, it looks as if my face is dry still so thats the biggest negative for this product.
I layer this will my spf30 on top for sun protection and my face stays moisturised all day I cant stop looking at it - it also gives me the shiny/dewy look that i prefer.

I'm yet to use this on its own, I'll update when I do, however so far so good.

On my body again because it is matte i dont like it.

I bought the biggest tub, so on my next batch il buy the one specifcally for face to see if its more shiny.

Polishes -Sally Hansen -Insta-dri Coral Commotion

Just love this polish for my short nails. It’s a sheer coral nude with pink duo chrome is how I would describe it. It caught my eye walking by a display in Walmart. As warmer weather approaches I’ve been looking for warmer toned nail polishes.

First off I have really weak nails and keep them short. I only use one coat of these Insta-dri polishes and get pretty good longevity that way. This color goes on very nicely. No worries of streaking. Very nice brush. I haven’t been this exited about a nail polish in a long time. Just so pretty for summer. Easy to slap on before you head out the door.

Moisturizers -Dermalogica -Barrier Repair

Why, oh why is this product so flipping expensive?! I totally have to disagree here with some of the other people that say this does not actually repair your barrier when it is compromised. To me, when I have over exfoliated or gone in too hard with my retin a or vitamin C or any other actives that may be harsh on my skin, and all else burns, this not only is extremely soothing on my skin and does provide a soothing barrier, after using it for a few days in vast quantities at night and a thin layer am under makeup, it DOES heal me. How do I know? Cuz I’m an idiot who doesn’t slow down on the actives and this is kinda the only change I make. YMMV obvi. I have bought this so many times & the packaging is so great because it is keeping the product air safe and light safe. It is NOT only a glorified make up primer filled with silicone’s like Monistat chafing gel or Smashbox because there are soothing oats extracts and all this other malarkey in it. However it IS silicone based. NO water. It is anhydrous. Very interesting gem of a product for people that go commando on the actives must have. Cicapair, etc got nada on this. That, cerave, chemical spf etc burn when this doesn’t. It allows me to carry on my psycho regime and as long as I remove alcohol and go lighter w chemical spf I’m good. Again... everyone is different. My skin can take a beating to find the fountain of youth! I would never waste this though on a daily basis when my skin is doing fine. I only bust this out when it is needed. Therefore, I am not wasting a 1 ounce, $50 moisturizer!!

Cleansers -Avene -Soapless Foaming Gel [DISCONTINUED]

on 4/23/2019 8:12:00 AM

I have dry and dehydrated skin and find most cleanser stripping.
However I do wear a lot of make up so this cleanser is not suitable for me to properly take of my make up at night.
I use it as a morning cleanser or just before doing a wash off mask. Just a tiny dot and lather up, followed by a spray of Avene water

Highlighters -MAC Cosmetics -Mineralize Skinfinish - Soft & Gentle

on 4/23/2019 8:11:00 AM

The best highlighter ever. My HG. I've been looking for a good highlighter over the past few years and I just couldn't find the right now until I found this baby. I've had Becca in Opal which is also amazing but a tad too dark for my complexion. Soft and Gentle is like the perfect shade for my skintone. It's a bit pricy but I'm sure it will last me a long time. The texture isn't soft to the touch since it's a baked formula but it applies amazing on the skin, no skin texture enhanced, amazing dewy glow. You can build this up for an extreme glow. It does have tiny particles of shimmer and glitter but when applied on the skin they just melt right in and create the most beautiful glow. The only downside with MAC is that they're not cruelty free and they are quite expensive.

Concealers -MAC Cosmetics -Studio Finish Concealer

I have used this in both NW 20 when I was pale and in NW 30 as my current color; no creasing whatsoever. Also, why don’t all concealers have SPF in them that is such a great feature! I apply this very heavily under my foundation, whether it is the powder plus or one of my many liquids. Then I just blend blend blend my foundation on top. I make sure I use a nice moisture eye cream underneath —- total perfection. This is one of the few that actually does not crease at all despite the many claims of others! Also, it is so easy to get your specified color once you know your true Mac shade!
