Moisturizers -Olay -Complete All Day Moisturizer SPF 15 - Sensitive

on 12/1/2018 6:31:00 PM


I have used this moisturizer for 8 years because acne started young for me and my grandma told me this was a good one. It seemed alright, but recently I was stuck because of a long layover and didn't have my luggage, so I had to use hand lotion on my face and couldn't use my Olay in the morning. Then, something weird happened--my skin literally cleared 50% overnight. I expected to break out horribly but I was so pleasantly surprised.

Of course, I googled why this might be, thinking it may be the sunscreen. Turns out that this moisturizer uses chemical sunscreens, which I found out break people out pretty often. I immediately went out and bought a different sunscreen with physical sunscreen (i.e. zinc oxide and titanium something) and I've had ONE pimple since then.

Long story short, I used this religiously because I know that sunscreen on your face is super important. It made my face greasy, so I thought I had crazy oily skin, and broke me out with small closed comodones and larger cystic acne as well. My makeup would break apart and separate on my face after 8-10 hours, even if I wore oil free long lasting foundations and powdered heavily, and now it looks 75% better after the same amount of time.

I am NEVER using this product EVER again. Avoid this moisturizer if you are acne prone in the very least. It's just not worth it.

Treatments (Face) -Paula's Choice -Resist Weightless Advanced Repairing Toner

on 12/1/2018 5:52:00 PM


So this has great ingredients and no nasties like fragrance, alcohol etc, and I’ve re purchased about three times as it is quite affordable but I don’t feel like I see a noticeable difference in my skin like my pores don’t look smoother. Skin doesn’t look better then before, maybe the ingredients will make a difference if used in the long term, I really don’t know, but I am still on the hunt for a good toner that brightens my skin.
It does slightly hydrate my skin and doesn’t cause any irritation, thank god.

Highlighters -Charlotte Tilbury -Filmstar Bronze & Glow

on 12/1/2018 5:46:00 PM


Really don’t understand the hype, it’s a bronzer and highlighter and yes Charlotte is a luxury brands but 50 quid? Unless I’m going to end up looking like kim k it’s not worth it, mac give me sun bronzer, benefit hoola will do the same job! I still tried it anyway but honestly it wasn’t even worth using again as i found it a boring bronzer, much prefer Mac’s give me sun.

Liquid -Illamasqua -Rich Liquid foundation

on 12/1/2018 5:42:00 PM


This was in my sisters bag so I decided to try it the shade was a little dark but I wasn’t going out so I didn’t mind so it’s a thick liquid and it provides full coverage but I did notice it did transfer after a few hours and my skin looked oily and a little caked, I just remember thinking I’m glad I didn’t purchase this as it is quite expensive.
Would not recommend.

Fragrances -Philosophy -Live Joyously Eau de Parfum

on 12/1/2018 5:25:00 PM


For years now I have watched Philosophy commercials. Bought several of their body lotions and was not impressed. Today I bought Live Joyously, one of their fragrances. Artificial, synthetic, nauseating. Never again.

Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden -Britney Spears - Fantasy

on 12/1/2018 5:22:00 PM


From the moment Fantasy burst onto the scene in 2005 with its hilariously gaudy bottle and psychedelic packaging, it has won a permanent place on my dresser because the juice inside is just...everything right with the world. The initial burst of tangy fruit quickly gives way to a luscious velvety cloud of cupcakes, white chocolate and vanilla that makes your inner child squeal. The drydown has just enough orchid, powdery orris root, and musk to smooth out the composition, make it a proper perfume, and prevent diabetic overload.

Forget about age limits and wearing “serious perfume.” Fantasy is just super-yummy and super-fun, from first sniff to drydown. I do think something happened to the formula (and strength) of this perfume from 2005 to 2018, and I prefer my older bottle just a bit more because it smells richer and two sprays last literally 24 hours on my skin However, the difference isn’t drastic and I’m happy with the newer bottle I keep in my purse as well.

If you can’t wear it seriously, then wear it ironically. Just wear it. It’s Britney, b****! ;^)

Lip Liners -Boots No7 -Precision Lips Pencil

on 12/1/2018 4:41:00 PM


I bought this product 3 times when I was new to makeup and I now know better. This is a mechanical lip pencil and is available at the usual reasonable Boots price. It is nicely packaged but pretty useless as a lip liner. It is just too soft and difficult to keep sharp. The tip snaps far too easily and large amounts of product is wasted. I ended up finishing mine as lip sticks. A traditional wooden pencil which you can sharpen (Body shop pencils are good ) is a much better solution.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Lustre Lipstick

Not my fav finish of MAC lipsticks. I love See Sheer and Flamingo but that's it. Of course, a shiny lipstick won't last long on lips but I wish there was a way to make them last longer.
