Eyeliner -Rimmel - ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal - Brown

foto

This is a pretty medium-dark, shimmery brown. I swipe it under my lower lashline and smudge it lightly, to give some definition and bring out my blue eyes, without looking harsh and lined. Applies smoothly, and the color is a very pretty warm brown, and does not look overly "glittery" once applied. This was dirt cheap ($3.99), and I have not had issues with it fading or smudging. I prefer automatic pencils that I don't have to sharpen, but that is the only con for me. Would repurchase!

Liquid -Clarins - NEW Everlasting Foundation + SPF 15

I keep buying this product and im really not sure why. It goes on easily as I just apply with a big kabuki brush in 2 mins on my was out the door. But it is anything but everlasting. It looks great,but you cant touch your face at all !! Even my sunglasses cause it to smudge and gather leaving marks on the side on my nose in the shape of sunnies. Dont let anything touch or rub on your face or it just comes off. Their makeup setting spray doesnt help. Primer doesnt help.

Some good points - easy to apply. Good colour range, the lightest shade is perfect for me. Nice bottle, glass with a sturdy pump. Product lasts me about 3 months with everyday use, pretty good value for money at $62nz . Doesnt cause me to break out at all.

Bad - settles into my forehead line, and im only 24. Definitely not "everlasting" as stated.

Concealers -Wet 'n' Wild - Photo Focus Concealer

foto

The coverage isn't enough for my dark circles and blemishes. It *is* buildable.

The texture is great for sheering out over an area of slight discoloration. There is that. Sometimes I use this to cover up mild facial redness or the like. This *has* allowed me to skip foundation from time to time, and enjoy the luminosity of my own skin.

At this price, it's worth a shot.

Mascara -Wet 'n' Wild - Photofocus Lash Primer

After applying this my lashes looked a bit thicker and longer. It also gave them a little bit of a curl. I see myself using this everyday.


Concealers -Clarins - Instant Concealer

This conceals, so does its job well to hide my redness. But everytime I use this I break out within a couple of days afterwards exactly on the areas I have applied it. So I would not purchase again, but this tube will last me about 5 years anyway since I only apply it when absolutely necessary.

Do not use if you are prone to breaking out from product easily.

Also extremely limited shades , not sure about elsewhere but here in nz we only have 3 shades.... so 99% of us either have to settle for lighter or darker than your skin.

Cleansers -Clarins - One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser

on 5/26/2017 1:29:00 PM

Love this product so much, the smell is refreshing, really wakes me up in the morning. And I can easily use this two times daily with no breakouts, dryness or irratation . It removes makeup well with a double cleanse. the best thing about clarins is their staff are so helpful, and actually know what they are talking about. As long as you are honest about your skin to them they will really find the best products for you! This is a great scrub, I was using clinique pep start scrub, which was half the price. But I would definitely prefer clarins.

Cleansers -Clarins - Pure Melt Cleansing Gel

on 5/26/2017 1:21:00 PM

I really only brought this out of desperation, because they had run out of my usual scrub. Not a bad choice, as I do love me an oil cleanser every so often. It turns from a gel, to an oil as it warms on your skin , then has a beautiful creamy emulsion as you add water. Removes makeup well. Havent noticed any changes in my skin/ no new breakouts since using. Only negative for me is I have to avoid my eye area as oil and eyelash extensions arent a a great mix and I have noticed having to get my eyelashes filled alot more often than when I use the gentle cream cleanser or scrub.

Would consider buying again... if they didnt have my favourites

Tinted Moisturizer -Estee Lauder - Day Wear Sheer Tint Release SPF 15

foto

I really don't like this product. I am glad I only bought a travel size! I liked the idea of a tinted moisturizer which is full of antioxidants and has some SPF protection. Also, the Revitalizing Supreme CC cream is the best tinted moisturizer I have come across, so I thought this one would equally good! First of all, the tint is much darker than the Revitalizing supreme CC. Secondly, it is also much cooler in tone. Whereas the Revitalizing CC cream made my light olive skin look fresh, radiant and glorious even when I was tired and dehydrated, this one makes me look slightly orange. It looks off. I also think this product should not be advertised as being for everyone, it definitely isn't. Because the tint is so dark I had to use very little (as little as possible) meaning I am not getting any coverage at all, my face looked muddy instead of glowy and of course this method of application means my face is not properly moisturized nor adequately protected! It also makes my pores and my filaments look worse, like it just settles on them and makes them look darker. It also looks a bit oily on the skin after a couple of hours. I used it twice and could not bring myself to use it anymore, it doesn't feel or look right. Maybe for someone who is cool toned and quite tanned it may work well but I look better without it on!

Brows -Unlisted Brand - Wunderbrow

I tried this for the first time about a month ago and did not like the brush that came with the product. I ordered the Wunderbrow Dual Precision Brush and now I love this product!!! You are able to create the perfect brow. Just remember not use too much product. I also use the spoolie end once they are "almost" dry. I do my eyebrows on before I shower and it does not come off!!!!

Once you see how easy this is and how you can create brow's that stay put. I cannot tell you how many times I wiped my brow away before using this product.

Highlighters -Essence - Pure Nude Highlighter

So i bought into the hype after so long.. i already own wnw reserve your cabana, the other raved about inexpensive subtle highlight, but since this is so talked about I HAD TO TRY IT cuz im a makeup hoarder i need to stop omg..

This is 5.49 CDN. So this only comes in one shade, be my highlight, i think is the name. Its a bit dark for my fair skin but blended out it works.

Its actually really really beautiful. I dont find it emphasizes pores at all. Its a beautiful glow that doesnt look like i just put highlighter on my face, it looks like i am just glowing. I think i like this more than wet n wilds reserve your cabana. I like that one too, this one just has a bit stronger glow while people can use wnw as a setting powder.
If you think you have way too many highlighters and dont need this... YOU NEED IT ANYWAYS!!!!
