Liquid -L'Oreal Paris -True Match Liquid Foundation (All Shades)

on 11/27/2018 9:45:00 PM


I’ve been wanting to try this foundation forever so I decided to purchase as it was on sale and got the shade linen, it’s a thin runny liquid and has a good medium coverage very buildable and if you have problamatic skin like me then it does cover well and you can easily get full coverage.
It’s a matte finish and true to its claim it does match your skin tone after a few minutes so even if you go slightly lighter it will oxide anyway but it doesn’t make you look orange. It does highlight some of my dry skin so it isn’t a smoothing foundation so I mix it in with a hydrating foundation to add coverage and bring some moisture back in.
I would recommend and would repurchase.

Mascara -L'Oreal Paris -Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Primer

on 11/27/2018 9:33:00 PM


I'm going to start this off by saying that I don't usually use lash primers, but my boyfriend has a work christmas party coming up and when I feel anxious about something I focus on looking so good that it will mask anything awkward I say or do, (anxiety is a strange beast). Also, my coworker had really amazing lash length the other day and we started talking about this product, so I bought some in a pack with the Lash Paradise Blackest Black mascara (not waterproof).

I wore the primer and the mascara together today and I really liked the look! I wasn't sure how much was the primer because, although it's been a while since I've used the lash paradise mascara, I do know that it gives some bomb lashes. So, when I took off my makeup this evening I used the primer on one eye and two coats of mascara on both. Holy crap there was a significant difference! The primer did make my lashes look fuller and longer than the mascara alone, and I hadn't curled my lashes before or anything. My lashes still looked great with the the mascara but that primer is definitely being worn to that Christmas party. (What's up corporate people, my lashes are not intimidated by you!) Once they dried I touched my lashes a little just to see if there was a difference and I found the ones with primer to be a little bouncier than the ones without. Someone mentioned a scent, but I didn't smell mine.

Will I prime my lashes every day for the rest of forever? No. But I WILL probably be using this primer until it's either gone or too old, and then I'll buy a new one when wedding season comes around again...but probably with waterproof mascara on top. Weddings make me weep.

Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -Finacea Gel

on 11/27/2018 8:15:00 PM


Skinoren and Finacea are different marketing names that Bayer uses in different countries, though Skinoren seems to be commonly associated with the 20% cream preparation of the product whereas Finacea seems to be commonly associated with the 15% gel preparation. In this review, Skinoren refers to the 20% cream, and Finacea refers to the 15% gel.

Back in October 2009, I wrote a review on how Skinoren did not work for my hormonal chin acne. Fast forward to 2016 and I was still suffering from the same acne problem! I had a particularly bad breakout episode around then and had been to the dermatologist for further rounds of oral and topical antibiotics when BP had proven to be too irritating for continual use. As most acne sufferers would know, antibiotics are not a long term acne solution but I needed something to clear me up quickly before my wedding, so I went hopelessly down the antibiotic route.

Anyway, in December 2016, I decided to give Skinoren another go. I had read up on some tips on how to apply it effectively. This time round, I applied a thin layer to my whole face, and applied moisturiser either before or after the Skinoren. I believe back in 2009, I used to just smear a thick layer on my chin. Anyway, Skinoren has proven to be a faithful friend and I have used it on and off since.

Now in November 2018, with azelaic acid becoming a more well known acne fighting ingredient, there is naturally a lot more information on the internet on this than say back in 2009 or even 2016. My online research suggests that Finacea is less irritating than Skinoren while being more effective (it absorbs and penetrates better), so I have recently sourced some Finacea from an online Australian chemist (AUD 25 plus roughly AUD 6 for DHL international shipping). I must say that the consistency is a lot better than Skinoren. It goes on skin much more smoothly and absorbs a lot better. Finacea is now my preferred treatment, though I make sure to always have some Skinoren on standby as well (in general, I find it easier to source Skinoren than Finacea).

In terms of how I apply it:

1. Wash my face with a mild moisturiser. Currently I am alternating between different cream washes from Japan.
2. Dry face.
3. Put on Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel.
4. Wait a bit.
5. Put on a thin layer of Finacea gel.
6. Wait a bit.
7. Put on sunscreen.

I love this product!!! I bought it last christmas after seeing it used on instagram and receiving some sephora gift cards for christmas.

Eye Shadow -MAC Cosmetics -Eye Shadow - Rule

on 11/27/2018 7:14:00 PM


I usually go for very neutral colors (not too warm nor too cool) but I have to say I’ve been loving all the looks I’m seeing on instagram with the newer warm palettes (Naked Heat, Soft Glam, etc). I didn’t want to invest in an entire warm palette when I have so many other eyeshadows, so I decided to get Mac Rule. This shadow alone can warm up any neutral look and looks great on my warm medium skin tone. Great pigmentation and blends very well. Definitely recommend!!!

Mascara -Unlisted Brand -Wander Beauty Unlashed Volume & Curl Mascara

on 11/27/2018 7:12:00 PM


I just dealt with WANDER COSMETICS for the first and last time !!!

*1st/ The Mascara - beyond mediocre. It was Dry, took 4 applications to get any build up and then it was just ok. I use Too Faced and really like it, but I kept seeing this mascara on my Facebook feed, so I decided to try it. What a disappointment . It was perhaps the worst one I have tried in years. Dried out before I even used it two times, and the quality was just poor.

2nd/ The service was horrible! It took around 5 tries to get their FB order page to work. It would not recognize the offer of free shipping, then it would not recognize my Paypal account, then it would not recognize the free gift code.
I finally got it to work, but the sample offer was not included and when I called, they said that was too bad,they would not make it good.
Then, I have to pay for the return myself.

Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -Curology - Acne Treatment

on 11/27/2018 6:46:00 PM


I never had acne or any type of skin issue until I was in my early 30s going through my long and ugly divorce. Not sure if it was stress, hormones, etc., but it was bad. Cyst like type acne. Leaving horrible marks behind even after they were gone and without picking at them. I have always taken care of my skin, and I work in the beauty industry. I stumbled upon Curology and wow, it really worked. I was amazed. I am still using Curology 2 years later, and have had 2 formula changes to increase the anti-aging benefits while still keeping the acne in check. It has worked wonders for me. I am fairly sensitive but didn't have any issue with curology at any time. The doctor I work with from Curology is amazing and I really can't say enough about this stuff!

Primer/ Corrector -RIMMEL -Fix & Perfect Pro Primer

on 11/27/2018 6:37:00 PM


I've always struggled with primers and finding one that keeps makeup on my face and keeps it matte. I have a few expensive ones that do what I need them to but I feel bad using them day to day as they're pricey.
I decided to give this a go as I've read good reviews and it's so cheap! Wasn't expecting wonders or anything at all from this but I was pleasantly surprised. I will definitely be buying this again to use as part of my day to day routine.

I wouldn't say it did anything for the appearance of my skin but it did keep it relatively matte and kept makeup in place.
