Lipstick -Unlisted Brand - ELF Matte Lipstick

It works great and doesn't come off whenever you lick your lips. It isn't too dry so it applies nice and smooth. I got it from Burlington so I don't know the actual retail price but at Burlington it was $1.99


Tinted Moisturizer -NARS - Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer

This has become my go to daily base product. It is light weight with a velvet finish that offers enough coverage to even my skin tone out. I have far from perfect skin so go in with concealer where a bit of extra coverage is required. This combination is one I have really been enjoying. It last on me all day (about 9 hrs) with maybe a touch up around midday, as I sometimes get a little shiny in the T-zone. It does hold up really well though. I rarely wear foundation now; before buying this I used it almost everyday so it's a nice change having a much lighter base that still looks polished.
Overall I absolutely love ❤️ this tinted moisturiser.
Shade details: I use Finland 🇫🇮 for this.
Mont Blanc for sheer glow.
Vanilla for radiant creamy concealer and soft matte complete cover concealer.
Skin details: acne prone (have not noticed this affect my acne) combination skin. I sometimes get oily in my T-zone.


Cleansers -Hada Labo - Gokujyun Makeup Removing Cleansing Oil

Good stuff overall. I would not repurchase because I prefer the slightly thicker consistency of grape seed oil.

Lasts a long time, gets all SS and MU off. I usually follow with Cerave hydrating cleanser. Important to apply with dry hands on to a dry face, massage, and then emulsify and massage some more.


Hair Color -Garnier - Nutrisse Permanent Creme Hair Color

I used medium dark brown at the weekend. I do not usually buy this brand, but was tempted by the advert. A huge mistake. It has wrecked what was silky smooth hair. Now it's dry and frazzled! I've tried a few rescue conditioners and give it a little bit of softness but it's still pretty bad. Now I'm contemplating having a few inches cut off, I've been growing it for 4 years, not even using hairdryer or straighteners in that time. Now I'm sad that I fell for the advertising.

Styling Products -Sebastian - Potion 9

You won't believe this but I just found my potion 9 from 20 years ago! And I decided to use it because back in the day it was my favorite! (Why dude I stop using it?!) so I applied it to my damp hair after shower and I swear, my hair had never felt so soft! SO SOFT!! so I went online and ordered a few more of this so I will have it forever :) it is truly the most softening conditioning beautifying hair product. (I had also used the Sebastian trillium shampoo and conditioner which I love). I think Sebastian is just the best. And I have thick wavy hair. This potion 9 left it smooth. Smooth beautiful waves like the 40s movie stars. I am mad that i stopped using this for years while I tried out bumble and bumble and so many other Products. I do love Moroccan oil. But I now use potion 9 right after shower and then Moroccan oil a bit later or when dry. It makes me dry hair so soft and full of moisture. Healthy.

Fragrances -Tom Ford - Noir Anthracite

I was lucky to get a sample of this from my wonderful Tom Ford SA...and I wasn't sure at first if it was FBW or not---but I am actually now thinking the answer is yes. It is spicy, and that Sichuan pepper does give it a foody/sauce simmering vibe--but, hear me out. Once that calms down (honestly, an hour in) it smells amazing. Yes, I am a girl btw--I routinely wear fragrances marketed to men and enjoy almost all of them--that being said, this one does skew a lot more masculine in the opening, with the woods and spices. I get no ebony, no lime, no floral notes whatsoever. It gets a little more musky though in the drydown. All in all, yes full bottle worthy, but you have to really commit to that somewhat foody, spicy, almost Body Odor like opening. My coworker came back to my office and he was like "Something smells funny...not bad..but...funny." and I had him sniff me so that he wouldn't think I hadn't showered this morning. :)

Conditioner -Marc Anthony - Grow Long Rapid Grow Leave In

This stuff is great! (I think the person who gave it a bad review is using it wrong). You don't need much of this stuff. I do a few sprays at my roots, and a couple of sprays on my brush and then brush it through my hair. It works great as a detangler. It smells great and also makes my scalp feel great and refreshed. Additionally, I've noticed my hair growing out a lot faster than normal (since I have dyed hair and can tell by my roots). You don't notice it being in your hair at all other than a slight pleasant smell.

Eyeliner -Charlotte Tilbury - Rock'n'Kohl Veruschka Mink

on 7/25/2017 12:33:00 PM

I read a lot of rave reviews for this eyeliner, so I was excited to try it for myself. I have very oily eyelids and many pencil eyeliners run right off within the first half of the day. The description of this as "liquid" in a pencil raised my hopes.

Alas, it's one of the worst eyeliners I've used, especially given the price point. Normally even an eyeliner that "slips" throughout the day at least provides me with a sort of smudged, accidental smoky eye. Not this one--it just kind of vaporizes.

For me it has absolutely no staying power and was a waste of money. On the plus side, it goes on smoothly and looks great after application. But if you have oily skin or use emollient eye cream, I wouldn't bother.
