Lipstick -MAC -Satin Lipstick - MAC Red

foto

I bought it blind, based on reviews and online photos and - surprise! - it's even better than I expected.

It's such a complex colour and digital photography does not do it justice. M.A.C. Red is the softest among the brights, if that makes sense. In the tube, it looks like a true red, but on my lips it's more like a mix of burgundy and pink - it has depth and a strong blue undertone.

It is definitely not a warm shade. I would say try before you buy, if you are not sure about your ability to wear cool colours.

I know there are many dupes out there but I wouldn't even think of buying its copycats, as the shade is to die for.

I give four stars because it doesn't last as long as I hoped and leaves a circle after you eat. Not sure if it was a good idea to make a bright lipstick in satin finish, but it must be great for dry lips...

Cleansers -Garnier -SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

I've never been so torn between a product. Everyone loves this stuff but i'm not sure. It is really gentle on my skin, doesn't feel drying or harsh. But it doesn't feel like it cleans deep enough for me to replace my regular cleanser. Definitely does not remove my eye makeup. So then i think....i'll just use it as an extra with the cleanser but then i'm just using it like it's a toner and it's not as strong as my toner. So i'm having a hard time fitting this into my life.......hahahahahaha. On top of all that I hate the packaging.


Styling Products -Unlisted Brand -R + Co Blow Out Balm

This product makes blowouts look almost salon ready and I’m not good at hair AT ALL. I’m being treated for major depression right now and the thought of brushing my hair, let alone blowing it out, seems impossible.

If you invest in a few hair clips to section off your hair and a decent round brush (the ghd one is really good), there’s no way your blowout won’t look amazing. You only need a very small amount of product or it will make hair greasy...go light; put it in damp instead of wet hair per the instructions.

The blowout with Park Avenue took all of 40 minutes and I’m very impressed with the product. HG, highly recommended!

Foundations -wet n wild -Photo Focus Foundation

Who paid all of those youtubers to say this was good lol.
I was dry-very dry skin and I could have fried food on my face with how much oil I was producing
It drys super matte and looks cakey too and wouldn't sit on certain areas of my skin at all, and then within a couple of hours the grease comes out???
Seriously how did all of the beauty gurus hype this up


Foundations -NYX Professional Makeup -Mineral Stick Foundation

It makes a really good under eye concealer, and I would give four stars for that but as a foundation it just doesn't work for me, it clings to dry patches


Loose Powders -NYX Professional Makeup -Mineral Finishing Powder

My favourite drugstore setting powder that I've tried. Looks good as an underage bake too. I get flashback mary in photos with almost any setting powder but this one isn't too bad.

Contact lense wearer here. This mascara smudges easily, and stings my eyes after a few hours of wear. Will not repurchase, you can get a better quality one for a cheaper price.

Powder -MILANI -Conceal + Perfect Shine-Proof Powder

I’ve tried a million powders from high end to low budget to set my makeup (Revlon Colorstay). There have been some I really liked the texture of, but the colors were off, and vice versa. This one is great in both categories. It’s finely milled, and goes on great, whether you’re using a brush or the sponge it comes with. I wear Buff in Colorstay, and Nude in this, and it’s perfect. It has good coverage, makes me look flawless, and makes my makeup stay on all day, without looking super powdery. This is the powder I will reach for everyday now.

Blush -BeneFit Cosmetics -GoGo Tint

You just need a tiny amount to look gorgeous all day. It looks very natural and that’s what you need when you’re 40+ (the best version of you without a heavy make up cake face)

Foundations -Boots -Beautifully Matte Light Foundation

Wow I am surprised I am only the 2nd one to review this here! This foundation is makes my skin look fresh, covers up blemishes just right and is not overly matte on me. I have worn it several times already and it lasts all day on me (about 8-10hours) with very minimal shine and hardly any touch ups. I live in tropical Asia where it is humid 90% of the time, and this is great. My only gripe with this is it isn’t available anywhere here in my country, so I hoard on this during Europe trips or at the Dubai dutyfree. I am a huge fan of No7 from Boots.
