Eyeliner -Marc Jacobs -Highliner Gel Eye Crayon- Iron(y)

on 7/10/2018 10:10:00 PM

I felt like this eyeliner had a tendency to dry out. I have never experienced with my other liners like Urban Decay. I will not repurchase.

Mascara -Lancome -Monsieur Big

After more than a year of searching and being disappointed with mascara after mascara I have finally found the perfect mascara for me. I have combination skin and the skin around my eyes tends to get oily. I have been struggling to find a mascara that will hold curl (I discovered only waterproof does that for me), not leave me with raccoon eyes, and do a decent job in the Volume Department. (I was using 2 mascaras for those purposes, but I don't have time for that). Months back I tried the original Monsieur Big and hated it (crazy wand, undesirable too-wet formula). Then I received a free mini of the waterproof version. The waterproof Monsieur Big is completely different, The wand is more user-friendly and the formula seems smoother. It holds the curl in my lashes all day and doesn't give me raccoon eyes! My search is over! This is the only mascara I will buy now. I'm on my second tube.

A silly bonus: I appreciate the squared black tube and metallic ocean blue label. It makes it easy to find this among so many black tubes with tapered ends,

Moisturizers -Deciem -The Ordinary Marine Hyaluronics

on 7/10/2018 9:08:00 PM

Not sold on this, to be honest. I was drawn to this over claims of a light hydrating booster serum, perfect for summer. I'm not sure I even noticed a difference when using it - it's very thin and watery, and easily sinks into skin, but unfortunately its hydration properties aren't great and skin feels dry again soon afterwards if no heavier cream or serum is used afterwards. It has a strange scent which some people can't stand, but for me the smell goes once it's on the skin. I've not noticed any significant effects when mixed with a moisturiser either. However, the good news is that it didn't make my skin any worse.

I won't repurchase this as there's no point buying something that doesn't appear to do anything.


Toners -Unlisted Brand -Drugstore Witch hazel

I had two whiteheads, after months of trying out face creams. One was below the eyebrow and quite noticeable. I had some witch hazel which I hadn't used in years and decided to use it on my face and nothing else. I realized one of those creams had really clogged my pores and I would never know which one. I stopped them all.

Just a couple weeks after starting witch hazel, the larger whitehead below the brow is completely gone. It gradually dried up and went away. The other one on the cheek is tiny and almost gone. This solution is all I used. I have stopped using all creams and lotions. Not only did it dry up these clogged pores but it is good to refresh the whole face including around the eyes. It's not drying.

I remember my sister and I both used this as teenagers and that is why I tried it. I was just so happy that it works. I think most skin care products have too many chemicals. I have given up on the expensive moisturizers which did nothing for me. It's just witch hazel from now on, with sunscreen sometimes.

Masks -InnisFree -Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack

Love this mask. I've had my jar for a little over a year, and barely made a dent. It makes my skin so soft and glowy! I usually use it after using the peeling jelly. However, I just noticed an off smell coming from the jar, so I wonder if the wine extracts have fermented, so I am going to get a new one and pitch the one on my counter... I need to buy some of the little spatulas, cause I wonder if it was my fingers applying this that caused it to go bad...

Powder -Everyday Minerals -Matte Foundation

I’ve been a loyal bare minerals user for years. However, the lightest shade was always a shade too dark for me but I kinda just put up with it (whenever I looked around at other powder foundations I couldn’t find anything with the right combo of being a good shade and having good ingredients for my fussy skin). I stumbled upon everyday minerals while I was trying to find something with even simpler ingredients than bare minerals and better shade selection. I used the matte base in 0N today for the first time and it was sooo nice. Wore better than bare minerals, felt lighter, and finally, finally, actually matched my skin tone perfectly. I tried it from a sample kit and the blush and shimmer was also great. I have extra sensitive combination acne prone skin and so far, so good.

Brows -BeneFit Cosmetics -Gimme Brow + Volumizing Fiber Gel

foto

I really enjoy Benefit brow products, I love the Browvo brow primer, High brow highlight pencil, Precisely my brow & goof proof pencils & Ready se brow 24hr clear brow gel. However, this product (Gimme brow) is not for me. I think it makes my brows look almost dirty & dusty and makes them very stiff. It also makes it almost impossible to touch up your brows through the day. I much prefer the 24hr ready set brow clear gel that just gives my brows a much prettier more groomed appearance. I first prime using browvo then use Goof proof in 3 to get a basic shape on the outer two-thirds of my brow then a mixture of shades 3 & 4 of precisely my brow to create tiny hair like strokes. Comb through then set with Ready set brow clear gel. I have naturally full brows but with a small scar on one brow. I Really dislike this product I would not re purchase.


Powder -La Mer -The Powder

I adore this powder. I literally love it. I've used so so many loose powders Laura Mercier, Chanel, Lancome, Coty Airspun and many more. This knocks them all out of the water. It reminds me a little of the Chanel Poudre Crystalline that was discontinued years ago though this is so so much better. The first day I applied it my partner commented that my face looked more slender. If you look at the powder in the jar in daylight you can see a slight fine glitter in it. Don't let that put you off when applied to the skin it is not glittery it just gives an angelic glow to the skin like nothing else I've ever come across. The packaging is so darn gorgeous & the included puff is so cute I don't use it I keep it in an old eye cream box to keep it nice. I'm so happy with this powder I've just ordered the fluid foundation I can't wait to try it. So far I've used this to set my under eye and face and used it to bake. It works beautifully for each method. This powder is stunning & worth every penny. It just blends so seamlessly into the skin in the skin, Like how ordinary powders do after a spritz of Fix+. I would never consider using a powder without a fixing spray but this powder you really could forgo the spray. Though I will continue to use Fix+ as I love how it melds my contour. blush, shadow & highlight. If you want to add a truly luxurious effective powder to your arsenal then please try this powder. You won't be dissapointed. You know it's good when your man see's a difference and compliments your make up un prompted.

Treatments (Eye) -Sisley -Sisleya Eye and Lip Contour Cream

I'm writing this review about the updated version of the product. I really love this cream. I got the limited edition version with the lovely little cooling facial massage tool. It is a very pretty little white & gold face roller that feels very sturdy & very good quality If its very hot I will often run the tool under cold water so its extra cold. I love how it de-puffs and cools and refreshes face & my eye area. I love it. I have just ordered the Nurse Jaime uplift roller as I love this little Sisley roller so much it made me want a larger one. The cream itself is the perfect consistency for my eyes. Its beautifully hydrating without being greasy. It feels quite heavy in the jar but once applied it absorbs beautifully & doesn't cause milia. Makeup sits beautifully on top. If I'm feeling very dry I'll wait for it to absorb then put a tiny amount Farsali rose gold elixer on top before my primer. I use it on top of The Ordinary Argireline or La Mer lifting eye serum and my eyes have never looked better. I would definitely buy again.


Lips -Neutrogena -MoistureShine Lip Sheer in Sunny Berry 25

on 7/10/2018 7:41:00 PM

These MoistureShine balms are a comparable product to Fresh's Lip Sugar, with good pigmentation and SPF 20 at a cheaper price point. The packaging isn't as luxurious and it lacks the lemony scent of Fresh, but for 1/4 the cost, you can buy all 6 colors if you really want to. My go-to this summer is Sunny Berry, a natural nude-berry that qualifies as a MLBB shade. No shimmer, lasts for a few hours. No complaints!
$6.49 on Amazon for a plastic twist-up tube with 0.15 oz of product.
