Highlighters -L'Oreal Paris -L'Oreal x Isabel Marant Shine Anytime Glow

I have legitimately never been this disappointed by a product before in my life. Most things, even if they work terribly, at least hint at what they were trying to do. This one left me confused and feeling like I had been scammed.

This was from a collection with Isabel Marant that appeared at my local drugstore one day. The packaging looked really intriguing, very bold in a minimalistic kind of way. The product looked like a cream highlighter in a pot, which usually doesn't interest me. But I noticed it didn't have any kind of sparkles or shimmer to it and in my head I started dreaming about the perfect face-gloss glowy-without-being-obvious look and I was hooked. This thing was $23!! But that didn't stop me and my dreams of looking like a glowing angel, of course.

I got the thing home, anxious to swatch it and play with it as there hadn't been a tester at the store. The texture felt good at first, perfectly balmy and just as I had expected. And then I swatched it on the back of my other hand. And then again. Nothing.
It felt like a dimethicone-based gritty mattifying primer. Not a single hint of glow. Not a slight reflect or a stray sparkly fleck. Absolutely nothing. The image in my head of a glowy, glossy, effortless finish scratched to a halt. I actually left that swatch on for hours, hoping it would turn shiny somehow and make its existence make sense. But still nothing.

There is absolutely no reason to buy this product at all, or honestly any of this collection, if they let this get through for $23 (!!!). I have never been so disappointed in a brand or a product or a collaboration as a whole as I was by this experience. That's the last $23 they're getting from me.

Lip Treatments -Aesop -Rosehip Seed Lip Treatment

Sinks into the lips completely and leaves no lasting effects whatsoever. I still felt the need to apply something thicker on top because this just wasn’t doing it. The smell of this is too intense, i can taste it in my mouth and the fragrance is so strong, smells very herbal/lemon to me. I think that Eucerin lip treatment in the little pot is a much better, much cheaper dupe with the same texture but much more hydrating and no offensive smell.

Liquid -REVLON -ColorStay Makeup SPF 20 Normal/Dry Skin

I wish this product worked for me, I really wish it did. I love the finish, even on my normal skin, because I don't have to set it and it lasts forever. It really blends into the skin and doesn't look mask-like, while still providing pretty good coverage.
I think the best part about the foundation is how spot-on the shade Buff is for my skin. I have very light olive Italian skin and nothing else matches this well without mixing in a lightener or having it look slightly too pink or peachy.

So why am I rating this 3 stars? Because it breaks me out really badly and gives me especially enflamed closed comedones like I haven't had since taking Accutane. I stopped using this and they've slowly started to go away, but I can't afford to use it again.

Foundations -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint

The fact that this oxidizes tremendously is a huge dealbreaker for me, so I don't think I'll be using it again. HOWEVER, this hits off all the other check marks for me. It feels great when you put it on with a brush because it's a smooth mousse-like formula, the shade match is perfect upon application, and the finish is radiant but not oily. I put powder and spray on top and it stays that way for hours. If my face didn't turn into a dark brown mess after an hour I would give this a perfect rating.

Cleansers -SHISEIDO -Senka Perfect Whip Cleansing Foam

foto

Perfect whip creates a fun thick marshmallowy foam if, that's your thing. It's also very cost efficient since the tube lasts forever. A tiny pea size amount expands to a thick luxurious cloud. However, it was too drying for me so I'll be passing on this cleanser again.

Sunscreen -Etude House -Sunprise Mild Airy Finish Sun Milk SPF50+ / PA+++

This is an HG for me. I used Biore UV Perfect Face Milk for years and loved the protection and mattifying effect, but it dried me out like crazy. For reference I have verrry clog-prone, dry, sensitive skin. This sunscreen isn't dehydrating at all, leaves a nice natural (not too matte) sheen, no white cast and no breakouts! I've been using it for about six months and I'll continue to repurchase.

Treatments (Eye) -Natura Bisse -The Cure Sheer Eye Cream

Like some other reviewers, I didn’t want to like this but now I can’t imagine life without it. I got four sample sachets which lasted a long time then I bought the full size. For years I’ve used Shiseido Benefiance because it was the only eye cream moisturising enough for my dry eyes and for concealer to look good. I used to layer moisturiser, sunscreen and a combination of corrector and concealer or concealer and highlighter but I just use this now. I’ve tried putting other products on with it (eg. extra sunscreen under or a highlighter over it) but it works best on its own. I just put on vitamin c serum and this and I’m ready to go. Although it’s expensive, it combines moisturiser, sunscreen and concealer plus the non-creasing texture is priceless. I can tap it on with my fingers and leave it – no blending or powder or anything else. If I need heavy duty cover up of my dark circles I might do the whole moisturiser/corrector/concealer/blending routine but for day to day this is more than enough. I've taken one lippie off because it's expensive. It's amazing and it'll last a long time and I'll buy it again but there's no getting around the high price. I just wish I’d discovered it when I had a newborn baby and wasn’t getting enough sleep!
