Mascara -COVERGIRL -Peacock Flare Mascara

foto

I received a tube of this mascara in a beauty box and I thought it was going to be gimmicky due to the shape of the brush bristles, but I actually like it. The formula is buildable and starts out wet like most mascaras, but dries to a nice consistency after a few uses, which I prefer since it's not as messy when applying. It gives my lashes a decent amount of volume and length with 2-3 coats. For those of you who have only used this once and given up, you should give this mascara another chance. The formula is much easier to work with after a few uses. I have already repurchased this and I will probably alternate this with a few other mascaras that I like.


Mascara -RIMMEL -Shake it Fresh Mascara

I received a tube of this mascara in a beauty box a while ago, but I just got around to trying it today. This mascara is hands down one of the worst I've ever used. While I like the idea of shaking the tube to keep the mascara fresh, it didn't seem to do anything. I used 4 coats of this mascara and it didn't add any volume to my lashes whatsoever and it only added minimal length. My lashes were actually drooping instead of staying lifted like with most other mascaras I've used. I actually had to layer another mascara on top to save my lashes from disaster. I'm planning on throwing this in the trash. The only reason why I gave this a 2 instead of a 1 is because I like the brush design and the tube design.


Cleansers -Cosmedicine -Healthy Cleanse Foaming Cleanser and Toner In One

Loved Cosmedicine Healthy Cleanse for Normal to Dry Skin. Only thing I’ve tried in years that cleansed really well and toned my skin without drying out or irritating my sensitive rosacea skin. Devastated that it was discontinued. Has anyone found a replacement?


Foundations -Yves Saint Laurent -Touche Eclat All-In-One Glow Tinted Moisturizer

I received this as a sample so i'm glad that I tried it out before committing to $80 AUD. This looks nice for about 3-4 hours after application, there's a nice glow and smooth finish. This works better without any primer in my opinion, as it's more prone to sliding if you have another layer underneath.

However, for someone who is 23 and has non-problematic skin, this seemed to accentuate my pores for some reason. I've never had this issue before. On top of that, I've started getting these weird red bumps in the centre of my face which is something i'd NEVER had with any other type of foundation. It seems like there's alot of skin irritants in this foundation (possible due to the fragrance?). I'd probably give it one more shot after my skin has calmed down but IMHO it's not worth it.

Eyeliner -CANMAKE -Gel Line Artist

The "rose red" shade is a wine colour containing eye-safe red pigments. I only use it at the outer corners of my eye but it holds well throughout the day. The eyeliner itself is not as soft as other gel pencils, but it goes on easily enough and blends out well too. Put too much force on it, however, it will snap readily wasting a big chunk of product. It's a twist-up automatic design which tend to have less eyeliner in them than traditional wooden ones.

This is very cheap within Japan so be warned that some sellers put huge markups on its price, there are plenty who sell at a more reasonable cost.

Recommended for those after an eye-safe red eyeliner!

Polishes -ZOYA -Purity

Zoya's formula is usually perfect for me and it wears forever. But I found Purity, while it's a clean, bright white, to be streaky and I needed three coats to get it opaque, and then it looked thick and lumpy on me.
I didn't like this one.

Polishes -OPI -Suzi Chases Portu-geese

I love white polish in general, but the few I've tried are streaky and take 3 coats to be opaque, and I have a hard time applying polish to make it look perfect......so usually white ends up looking really messy on me.
But Suzi Chases Portu-gese worked for me. I didn't have any streakiness and it almost "floated" on my nail. It has just a hint of pink (to my eyes) to soften it and it doesn't look stark. Two coats made it opaque.
This white is a winner for me.

BB Cream -Maybelline New York -Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Cream

The palest shade is perfect for those with fair skin wishing to emulate Donald Trump's tangerine-inspired style. Other than that, it's essentially a tinted moisturiser. Nothing special or revolutionary.


Loose Powders -Glossier -wowder

on 9/7/2018 6:09:00 PM

This powder looks really good when first applied. It's not chalky or cakey and sets makeup well, though I've found that after an hour, it seems to be gone. Unlike most of the other reviewers it seems, I don't like the packaging of this powder. It's not messy because the mesh keeps the powder in the jar, but at the same time I find it very hard to get any product out. A brush is impossible to use. I've had the best luck with the Laura Mercier powder puff, but even with that I have to press into the mesh over and over. I thought about trying to pry out the sifter, but the packaging is very sturdy so I don't think that's possible!
