Blush -Korres -Zea Mays Powder blush in 16 Pink

on 12/6/2017 5:18:00 PM


This is a muted light pink that looks EXTREMELY natural on my nc15 skin. It is not the kind of blush on top of the cheekbones because that wouldn’t get the best out of this blush. I dab it lightly on apples of my cheeks right in the middle and it looks like my skin. Texture is just as buttery as always. No visible shimmer but luminous finish.

Hair -Revlon -Nutri Color Creme

on 12/6/2017 5:08:00 PM


Its good if you need a fast fix on your hair .mine is dull and need some color and shine...these colorbombs are kind of great... i Will buy tangerine this time and put Stripes of it in my blondish hair. .

its very nice that you don't need to use everything at once, and it can last a long time as an opened container.. You can blend the colors out(also with normal conditioner ,i have done that).The lighter the hair is ,thus stronger these color will become on it.

Cleansers -Shu Uemura -Ultime8 Sublime Beauty


This is another Shu Uemura cleansing oil I love, but... it's not their best one for my skin. I love the feel of this oil (slightly thicker than Porefinist, pro: feels more Hydrating, con: have to work more to remove waterproof mascara), it removes waterproof makeup well, smells amazing, all of the qualities I love in cleansing oils, but... after using for a few days, I did realise that the scent mildly irritates my sensitive skin. It hydrated it well, but I did end up with some tiny pinkish bumps on my cheeks (not normally an area of reactions). Would I use this again in the future (like a travel sized sample on holiday)? Yes, I would. I do think it's best, however, that I stick to the Porefinist of I had to choose one. I highly recommend this formula to anyone who is not super sensitive.

Polishes -Ciate -Cabaret

on 12/6/2017 4:01:00 PM


Cabaret is a purple (berry leaning), cream polish. I own a miniature bottle, which was a part of Ciate Advent Calendar 2017.

I thought 2 coats would be enough, but having applied 2nd coats I have noticed some balder patches, so I applied the 3rd coats to even it out. Also, due to slightly runny formula I managed to flood most of my cuticles. I had a fair bit of tipwear after a couple of days, but no chips.

I really liked the colour, but I wasn't too keen on the formula. I wouldn't repurchase Cabaret, instead I would get a bottle of Zoya Tara, which looks like a dupe.

Polishes -Unlisted Brand -A-England St George

on 12/6/2017 3:41:00 PM


St.George is a teal, scattered holo polish. The holo is not quite subtle and in certain light it just looks like shimmer. This polish is darker on the nail than I thought it would be, but stunning nevertheless.

But, what really makes this polish stand out is its formula. In many of my previous reviews I called a polish 'one-coater', but then used 2 coats. Well, this is the first time I can remember when I used 1 coat only and it looked absolutely perfect.

Lipstick -Urban Decay -Mirana (Alice in Wonderland)

on 12/6/2017 3:39:00 PM

Oh.My.Goodness. I deplore this lipstick. Oh, it's pretty and all when you *first* put it on, but this bad boy dries out and cakes up (I believe these are the little "scabs" the previous reviewer actually likes) and leaves my lips looking completely awful (and I'm a serious believer in keeping my lips moisturized). To top it off, the plastic ring at the bottom of the tube has now come loose some kind of way so I have to put extra effort into just twisting it up and down.

Stick -NARS -velvet matte foundation stick

Looks like I’m in the minority because I love this product.
• My skin type: (thanks an ideal skincare routine) it recently went from combo-dry to normal with occasional oiliness during the day. I got rid of texture and dry patches as well, my skin doesn’t break out very often, so I don’t look for full coverage foundation. I want it to even out my skintone. My neck is lighter than my face so the foundation should balance things out.

•Shade: I own the shade Siberia, which is a perfect match. I own the liquid version (Sheer Glow) but don’t like the formula because it wears off from my nose within 4 hours. The stick version doesn’t- and also doesn’t settle into fine lines on my forehead.
• Application: I apply mine with damp beautyblender. Foundation blends easily. The sponge on the other side is mostly useless- unless you wat to do touch ups during the day (I personally rarely do).
• Finish: satin matte (not dewy, but not “flat” matte either. Perfect in between).
• Coverage: unlike many stick foundations, it offers sheer to light-medium coverage.
• Price: let’s be honest, this foundation is kind of a rip off. I like MUFE stick foundation, but no shade from their range matches me (they’re either too neutral or too pink). Which is a pity because the value for money is way better.
• Wear time: on me it’s quite great. I set it with powder and it lasts without creasing throughout the day.

So overall, I’ll buy it again- even though the price is steep. I find it very hard to find good shade match, so if I find one, I “stick” (lol) to it.

Lips -MAC -Lip Erase - Pale

on 12/6/2017 3:04:00 PM


Like another reviewer posted, I too like a nude lip and before buying this product I used concealer to "blur" my natural lip shade. In the winter I use more of an NC20 concealer and find that the shade PALE is absolutely perfect for what I need. Last week I noticed that some mascara had fallen and I didn't have Any concealer so I used a pat of this product under my eye and no one knew the difference...I don't recommend substituting for a concealer but just saying you could if you had to...

Lips -Victoria's Secret -Velvet Matte Cream Lip Stain -Adored

on 12/6/2017 2:58:00 PM

I just bought this as part of the model's nude lip kit that comes with glitter gloss and Nearly Nude liner. I give it 4 stars because the application with doe foot wand is fairly even and smooth and the packaging is excellent- no spillage or product seeping in to the seals. I don't give it 5 stars because of the actual colour. I don't think it looks like the photos depict and the description is off. it is a darker nude with heavy peach/pink tone to it. I have blue eyes and fairer skin in winter and like nude lipsticks like MAC fleshpot or Myth and this is more like velvet teddy.

Pressed Powders -L'Oreal -Infallible Pro-Glow Longwear Powder

on 12/6/2017 2:53:00 PM


I bought this knowing nothing about it but I needed a longer powder STAT...and this was right in front of me. I'm so glad I chose it- my shade was the same as with the traditional L'Oreal powders but this one has a matte and a shimmer side so you've got options. I've found that it can be worn alone for excellent coverage but I prefer using it over a bb cream for a second skin look.
