Sunscreen -Sofina -Beaute SPF 50+ PA+++

on 4/24/2018 9:31:00 AM

Great product for dry skin. The white cast disappears quickly on my tan skin. The pic here is incorrect, it is a small white bottle 3.5" high with a pretty cap with engraved flowers. It's a runny white liquid, a little greasy at first but soaks in quickly. I would probably not buy it again as I usually never repeat any product with so many new choices everyday! But if you want an emollient sunscreen with ZO that works well with liquid makeup then this would be a good choice at this price point.

Lipstick -Bite Beauty -Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick

on 4/24/2018 9:17:00 AM

I could have sworn I reviewed this lipstick before, but I guess I didn't. I suppose that's a good thing, since it's given me months to really get a good handle on how I feel about it. And I can say that months later, I'm still loving this lip color.

I have the shade "Chutney", which is a pretty, darkened pink nude shade. It's very flattering and natural without being a true nude, but it's not too brown if you've got light to medium olive skin. On me, I find it to be the perfect neutral that I keep reaching for over and over. If you're familiar with the Amuse Bouche lipstick in "Pepper", this shade is nearly exactly the same. It works great with any eye look if you ask me, from simple to smokey.

The formula is not a typical liquid lipstick in that it doesn't dry down matte. In fact, it stays rather glossy, drying down only to a satiny finish over extended wear. I do find that this lasts a good while on me as long as I'm not eating anything big. There's a lot of transfer, so keep that in mind. I think this is why Bite erred on the side of caution by calling this "Liquified" instead of a liquid lipstick, though it still seems to have caused some confusion. A lip liner might be helpful if your lips are prone to feathering.

I don't find these to be drying, but they aren't extremely hydrating either. If I prep with a balm first, my lips don't suffer after removing this. While wearing it, it makes my lips look rather plush, as though it fills in any lines without settling.

One dip in the tube is all you need to cover both lips, as the applicator is an angled, elongated doefoot that dispenses the perfect amount of product. It's highly pigmented, so going in with a second coat isn't likely to be necessary.

At $24, it seems like a hefty investment for a lipstick, but you get a whopping 7.15g of product! Seeing as the stick version of the Amuse Bouche range tops out at a bit over 4g (which is still a good amount of lipstick), I'd say $24 is really not a bad price.

I'm interested in trying more shades from this range, as it seems to have expanded a bit, with a considerable amount of shades having been added over the past few months.

I don't like cream lipsticks.4-5 years ago I bought a cream lipstick of Lancome and and it had gone immediately.After that I bought lipsticks from Golden Rose,which were matte but dry.So I was searching for a matte and hydrating.I bought today a cream lipstick from Urban Decay and I can't believe it.It is cream and matte.Amazing.I am very satisfied.The price is good.So totally recommend it.

Lipstick -Burt's Bees -100% Natural Moisturizing Lipstick

I bought the Sunset Cruise shade.
In the first couple uses of it, I found the moisturizing pleasant and the pigment to be very easily bendable and layered. However, after a couple of hours, the pigment does retreat to creases in the lips and it has to be blended out again. Despite this, it is quite comfortable to wear (very transferable, though most moisturizing lipsticks are) and taste and smell okay.
After about 6 months of use, the lipstick itself had seemed to develop uneven bumps and produced a lot of oil. This made the application very uneven and a lot more 'moisturizing', so I would recommend keeping a lipstick brush handy.
The pigment on my lips were a little different from what I saw on the packaging.
Overall, it is a lipstick that I don't mind but probably won't buy again.

Moisturizers -Olay -Regenerist Whip

I'm 42yo and starting to see wrinkles. I noticed a difference in the softness in my skin after the very first night. This is the "lighter" version of Regenerist. This does not feel oily and the scent is nice. I've been using this for a few days. So far so good.

I would repurchase this product, expensive though but it's worth it


Powder -bareMinerals -BareMinerals Feather Light Mineral Veil

The application can create a mess but this is truly one of the best foundations that I have ever used. The company has expanded the shades considerably to the point that I had to try at least 4 to see that this shade is still the perfect match. My skin has been acting a bit dry recently which is odd. I still use my NYX primer to keep this on throughout the day. I believe that the company has also changed or tweaked the formula a bit too. I used this product when it came out. The new formula stays on better than the old one. Although Jane Iredale is still leading in quality in mineral foundations but I think BE has become stronger throughout the years and does a decent job. Also, the pricing is definitely better than JI. Overall, I think if you are looking for a decent powder foundation, this is a great quality product.

Masks -Aztec Secret -Indian Healing Clay

firstly, the packaging is sturdy and the price is fairly reasonable - $17 for 908g; you'd only need about less than 5g per usage too.

also, in case if you didn't know it is called the world's most powerful mask because it literally makes your face pulse (also when u wash it off expect ur face to turn red for a while), that's all.

how i used this mask was as directed - 1:1 ACV & this and i left it on for 15-20minutes.

THE REVIEW:

now, why two stars? initially i only wanted to give a star, but i realised that it has helped my forehead clear up almost instantly whereas very painfully broke my cheeks and temples out; i have never broken out this badly before, and i did this mask 2 times in a span of 3 weeks (once a week, rest one week, did it again on the third week) on two Sundays to confirm that this was the product that caused me to break out. note that my nose doesn't really break out and also my chin it's in its own world, nothing will cure the pimples but nothing would inflict more damage. so what happened to the affected areas??

THE GOOD - my forehead
this mask instantly cleared my forehead up (well, almost). what was on my forehead was those little pesky bumps that never goes away, i think loads of people understand what i'm saying. so if your problem is that, this mask is for you! however, note it's only for the multiple tiny tiny bumps.

THE BAD - my temples and cheeks
woah, if only i could insert a photograph on my cheeks. my cheeks are very prone to whiteheads and pimples but i don't get acne - if i do it's only during that time of the month where i will get around 3. if not on usual days it's just plenty of whiteheads that will never come out; these bumps are like the ones on my forehead but a lot more bigger and irritating and they really make my face look extremely dirty under light. i have hyper pigmentation on my cheeks as well as some pimples but nothing too serious. for my temples, i have hyper pigmentation, whiteheads and though not all the time but pimples there too.

so now that i have described my skin issues (FYI i have oily, fair skin and i'm 17 for those who are curious) if you have these issues i would recommend you to stay far far away from them. but that's up to you of course hahaha

what happened was after the mask as said my face was red and just like every other mask your face would feel clean. however at night (i applied it in the afternoon) i noticed my face breaking out and in the morning it was so bad. i had ACNE on my cheeks and it hurt sooo bad, my hyper pigmentation become extremely red - redder than ever and i grew even more whiteheads! my skincare after the mask was toner and moisturiser btw so nothing too crazy but enough to supply back what was lost in my skin after the mask. i grew pimples as well. it's just so bad. however i'm letting my skin rest and it's healing already so that's good (i used a cotton pad face cleanser).

so yes, to conclude:

buy this if your problems are those little pores that are clogged (oh i forgot to mention my forehead doesn't get acne or pimples but whiteheads are possible)

if not, don't bother

thanks for reading, let me know if this review was helpful ❤️

I was really reluctant when ordering this product, because I haven’t had the best experiences with matte lipsticks. BUT it is unreal how matte, pigmented, and smooth it is. I am convinced that this is one of the best mattes I’ve ever used!

Eye Shadow -Huda Beauty -Mauve Obsessions

Swatches poorly but don't let that deter you! It works very well on the eyes, blends seamlessly. Love the compact size. Can do a variety of red/mauve eye looks. I was worried it would be "too red" but the colours actually came together well and looked flawless on me. Obsessed!
