Misc Beauty Tools -beautyblender - Pure Beauty Blender

on 4/24/2017 5:14:00 AM


It makes me angry that I love so much a tool that is so expensive. They say that you need to replace it after 3 months but I think this is only a marketing thing as I've used mine for one year (I took good care of it) and I can still use it. I tried other sponges and brushes but none of them seem to work as good as this. Makes the foundation flawless and blends so good the under eye concealer. I will buy this again for sure!

Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman - Sculpting Brush

on 4/24/2017 5:05:00 AM


I wanted something for contouring, but I find that is too dense and can make the bronzer look harsh. It is more effective to use as a foundation brush because it blends so nicely (I saw this on Tanya Burr's Youtube channel, so I gave it a try). I won't repurchase it because it is not something amazing. Really affordable, too.

Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman - Setting Brush

on 4/24/2017 5:01:00 AM


This is my favourite brush I own. When I got it I used it for highlighter and worked wonders. Then I gave it the job to set my under eye with powder (no baking) and does this job amazing, too. It is affordable and I can't wait to buy another one because you can use it for multiple things. The quality is very nice - I washed it multiple times and not a single hair had fallen off, nor the handle broke and I use this daily for at least 1 year.

Misc Beauty Tools -NYX - Blotting Paper

on 4/24/2017 4:56:00 AM


These are good and absorb oil without messing with your make-up, but I find they are expensive for what they do. I've found cheaper alternatives, so I won't buy this again, but it is a good product.

Another product from Essence that does it's job amazingly. I blot, then I add some powder and I look nice and fresh. Very inexpensive and does what it claims.

Pressed Powders -Essence - All About Matt Fixing Compact Powder

on 4/24/2017 4:46:00 AM


Yes!! Amazing product for an amazing price. I use it to set my undereye concealer and lasts for 8-9h, almost a full day. Sometimes I use it on my forehead, nose and chin and I get shiny in 2h, but I am oily so that happens with almost every powder I use. It didn't broke me out at all. I bought this twice and I will continue to do so, because it is awesome!

Treatments (Eye) -La Prairie - Cellular Radiance Eye Cream

on 4/24/2017 4:29:00 AM


I know that this is an expensive product, but having tried numerous skin care items, I truly believe that you get what you pay for, and in this case, the high-quality ingredients make it worth it. After all, it's La Prairie; therefore, quality is the point here, not "what's the cheapest cream that I can slap on?" I'm biased, though, because I love La Prairie! It's one of the best brands for my skin, and this eye cream is worth it's weight in gold. For example, as a man, wearing a concealer is really not in my best interest--socially. Besides that, I don't want to merely mask imperfections, I want to heal them. And with this eye cream, concealer is not necessary or advised because the pigment in the makeup will cover up the brightening effect of the cream. Just for the record, I've tried the Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift and the Platinum Rare--both on the high-end of La Prairie eye creams--and I find this one to be their best formula. Not only is it more aesthetically pleasing, it's very hydrating.

Highlighters -Jeffree Star - Skin Frost

on 4/24/2017 3:53:00 AM


Most of Jeffree Star's Skin Frosts are totally unwearable unless you want to go out looking like a Christmas tree bauble.

Because the pans are so thin with the product spread over such a large area you run the real risk in receiving your product totally destroyed if not packaged perfectly and unfortunately some businesses don't refund, so be very careful whom you purchase through. Read through their faqs to make sure you can return for a refund or replacement.

A good tip for all those unusable highlighters is to use them on your body for an all over highlight or on your eyes to add a pop of shine to your eyeshadow.

I purchased Eclipse, more for the packaging than anything else and I can't say I was impressed. Feels like sandpaper, takes multiple layers to glow and it scratches from all the glitter. There is a much cheaper better alternative out there. Eclipse is a complete dupe for ELF Moonlight Pearls, so save yourself some money and go for the ELF. Just remember the ELF is baked so you need to scrape the top layer and then it is soft, luxurious with just the right amount of glow and no disco ball glitter.

Even Jeffree says that ELF Moonlight Pearls is Jeffree Star approved as though that means squat but it says a lot about his own product.

Jeffress Star Skin Frosts are overpriced and play on his popularity, such a shame he doesn't put some more effort into his products.

Self Tanners -Clarins - Gelee Auto Bronzant Express - Self-Tanning Instant Gel

on 4/24/2017 3:38:00 AM


I'm very pale and i really like the colour of this.

Spread evenly and not streaky. I can apply it with my hands and it washes off them completely so no need to use a mitt. I cover hands in moisturiser then wash them after and use a makeup brush to spread a little more around my wrists and hands and get a good result.

It takes a while to dry, about an hour. It's clear and easy to spread. You do feel like it doesn't dry completely but doesn't bother me. It doesn't transfer into anything at all, bed sheets and pyjamas stain free.

Good colour lasts about 3 days and then fades but it's still there 7 days after. You do need to top up mid week.

Overall it's reliable and a great tanner. Looks natural on the face as well. I don't find i need much so i don't mind the price.
