Mascara -Maybelline -Volum' Express The Falsies Flared

I like this mascara, because I get full/fanned out lashes in one coat. I don't find the formula to be dry, but I like to add 4-5 drops of sterile eye drops to all my mascaras, because I prefer a wetter formula. I like the curved spoon style wand, although it took me a few applications to get used to it. Reasonably priced at around $7, and you get more product with the Flared version (9.4ml) versus the regular Falsies (7.5ml), even though they are the same price. Have repurchased, and will again!

Eyeliner -Rimmel -ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal

I have this in "003 Brown", which is a beautiful coppery deep brown. This applies smoothly and richly pigmented, even on the waterline. It also stays put nicely when worn on the upper eyelids. The only con, is having to sharpen it, because auto liners are far more convenient. Only costs $3.99, and performs wonderfully, so I'd repurchase!

Polishes -Sally Hansen -Insta-Dri Nailpolish Colors

This is my go-to “quick fix” polish. I have “In Nude-tral” for when I just want a clean look and don’t want to risk messing with color. I know some have an issue with the (somewhat thick) consistency- but I think it serves the purpose of giving full coverage in one coat. It really does dry very quickly and the brush is fantastic.


Lipstick -Marc Jacobs -Le Marc Lip Creme

I got a sample size in the shade 238 Je T'Aime, and the name was quite fitting, because I fell a little bit in love with it. The formula is very opaque, as well as being very creamy without being slippery. It stays put, but it's not waxy, and it neither exaggerates dry patches nor dries out my lips. It simply feels very luxurious on the lips. The brand describes the finish as being satin, though I would argue that it's a little glossier than what I would normally classify as satin. The "one swipe is all you need" type of claim is very much true. Again, I only got a small size of this, but I've used it plenty of times without running out.

The shade looks like a dark-ish rose pink, but it applies looking more like a muted, pink-ish red. I've always been a fan of the bright red lip, and even though I still like that type of statement look, I like that this is slightly more muted.

I usually don't go for high end brands when it comes to classic lipsticks, because I think there are a lot of great options from the drugstore/middle range brands. So would I buy the full size of this or another shade? Yes! I really do love the formula. WILL I buy it though, knowing it's $30 (or rather $40 in Sephora Sweden)? Maybe not any time soon..

+ Cruelty free (only Marc Jacobs Beauty is, not the perfumes)
+ Super pigmented
+ Comfortable, non-drying formula
+ Doesn't bleed or feather (though full disclosure - this very rarely happens to me with lipsticks at all)
+ The packaging is very stylish (even the sample size is, even though it's, for obvious reasons, not magnetic like the regular case is)
+ Unscented

- Pricey - obviously you're partly paying for the brand name


Lip Treatments -Kiehl's -Lip Balm #1

Sits pretty, looks like a lip gloss but without being sticky. Aaand that’s pretty much it. Doesn’t hydrate, doesn’t keep the moisture in. In fact, gave me a major allergic reaction, my mouth area looks burnt, all dry and flaky. It’s been more than a week since I stopped using it and proceeded with drug and topical treatment and there’s barely an improvement showing. Some might not experience the same reaction but it’s definitely not for me. Good thing I got it as a gift from Kiehl’s. Love their other products though.

Crappy mascara. What a waste of money and time to put it on. Good thing it was cheap.


Foundations -Tarte -Double Duty Beauty Confidence Creamy Powder Foundation

I have oily and somewhat sensitive/acne-prone skin. This is my go to powder foundation that I love (enough that when my summer color stopped working, I went out and bought another color!). I use this with primer and setting spray to help longevity. It looks smooth and not too powdery. It blends well with my skin and doesn't look like it's sitting on top of the skin. It has light-medium coverage with my application, which is what I love. It lasts pretty well throughout the day. Yes, my skin will get oily in a matter of hours, but that happens with ANY foundation. The difference with this versus other powder foundations is that this doesn't break up or pool with my oily skin and doesn't completely melt off. Sometimes all that's needed is an oil absorbing sheet and I'm good to go for a few more hours. I even will use this for touching up other foundations later in the day for going out at night and whatnot. By looking at my face, you wouldn't suspect that it's a powder foundation! When I use a makeup wipe at the end of the day, product is still coming off! Granted, it doesn't look the best after 10 hours of wear, but again, no foundation does for me. This is a good powder foundation to look at if you have oily skin. The best I have found!
