Concealers -Unlisted Brand -the SAEM - Cover Perfection Tip Concealer

Bought this because it was cheap & felt that it's no harm trying. Ended up liking it very much.
It cost less than $5? for a reasonable amount of product on top of that , it's high coverage, long lasting & non-drying.
I only used a dot to cover my dark eyes circle so it doesn't crease & only on areas where i have blemishes.
I think this is perfect for girls that doesn't use much foundation cause the consistency is alittle thick, might be hard to blend but if you only use a layer of foundation cushion then this might be perfect for you!
I legit have nothing to complain about this product. Highly highly recommended.


Polishes -Unlisted Brand -Pahlish - The Pumpkin King

on 10/19/2018 11:32:00 PM

Pahlish’s The Pumpkin King is from the 2017 This Is Holo-Ween collection, It is described as a warm rust colored linear holo with multichrome flakies that shift from purple to gold. It me this polish looks more like a deep mauve and not rust. Even though IMO the polish isn’t the color described, it is still lovely and I think I like it better than I would if it were more rust colored.

The formula is like butter, smooth and creamy applying evenly.. There is no running or pooling. The texture is great and as would be expected, the holo spreads evenly. It was completely opaque in one coat but as is my habit I used two coat. This polish is a year old and it is still perfection!

This comes packaged in the standard polish bottle with the standard brush. In this case the bottle is extra cute as it has a little ghost on the label.

As I recall I paid $12 for The Pumpkin King. That’s a great price for sure a nice, high quality Indie polish. This is a LE polish so I doubt it will available again, but if you see it in a destash it would be a good buy. I would repuchase if I had the opportunity.

I will update in a couple of days regarding wear, removal and staining.


Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -Differin Cream

I have suffered from acne since the age of 14, up until 6 years ago I went to a dermatologist in Mexico. At the time I had tried everything for my skin and at the time had been using SKII product line. She told me to scrap everything, handed me a Glytone mild face wash, tube of differin and eltaMD suncreen. Since then I have continued the use of all 3 and my skin has never looked better. It not only cleared up my skin but works wonders on wrinkles. It does require patience, results are bot immediate, the first 6-8 weeks you break out, skin is sensitive but afterwards it is all worth it.

Concealers -Unlisted Brand -the SAEM - Cover Perfection Tip Concealer

I have the worst panda eyes ever. Teased ever since I was young. Regular concealers don't do anything for me. When I bought this my world changed. It has AMAZING coverage. For example: i was out with my friend and her sister (very skilled in makeup) said to me, "Why do you look so rested? It's like you haven't been pulling all-nighters all week" (context: the day after finals)

Blending is kind of hard to do however if you apply with a sponge your eyebags disappear without looking too cakey. For high coverage days, I entirely cover both of my eyebags and blend away with a sponge and for low coverage days I use literally one dot under each eye and use my fingers. I've had mine for over a year because A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. I've had my sisters asking me where I've bought mine because they too, love this concealer.

Pros: amazing coverage and wear, little goes a long way
Cons: sometimes the concealer spills a little bit outside the packaging??? Also it's not easy to blend a high-coverage amount without a sponge

I bought this assuming it would be quite fruity since nectarine and grapefruit are top notes, but for me it smells like hair spray. Don’t find anything summery about this scent like other has described. I don’t pick up any tonka bean or grapefruit either.. it smells very “clean” to me, like a laundry detergent or something along those lines. The lasting power isn’t the best, like what you would expect from a body spray.

I gave this product a great review. I have had it for months now. Results are not consistent. I am now using it on my body in the shower and rinsing it off. I get more consistent results with DevaCurl, As I Am and Kinky Curly Not Today. A waste of my hard earned cash.

P.S. I get better results with Palmer’s Deep Conditioning Coconut Oil Protien Pack.

My hairstylist recommended this product after I asked if she was wearing lash extensions. It was somewhat expensive ($70.00 CDN) and I was dubious about its effectiveness since it didn't contain the prescription ingredient in Latisse (which I have not used). I am 60 years old with short, straight lashes that have gotten finer over the last several years. I decided to take a chance, and stuck with the daily application regimen.After 3 weeks, my lashes seemed a bit longer, but what I noticed most was that they would now hold a curl after using an eyelash curler. I am at the 2 month mark, and my lashes have lengthened significantly, and even curled up a bit at the ends. It is especially noticeable with mascara. Whereas they were mostly just lengthening before, they are now starting to thicken as well. My lashes are longer and thicker than they have ever been in my life. Apparently, maximum results are achieved at three months, so I am looking forward to the end result. There is a slight reddish- purple discolouration along my upper lashline (I don't apply to bottom), but my concealer covers that, so I can live with it for the lash benefits it provides.

Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -Differin Acne Treatment Gel

So this is a very premature review - I’ve only been using for a week - but I’ve already started to see results! I don’t have terrible acne, but in the last few weeks, my chin has been erupting with really big, deep, painful pimples (I think it’s hormonal??). So off I went to Walmart to find SOMETHING to help. Originally, I was planning on picking up some Neutrogena acne products and a face mask, but I saw the differin gel and decided to give it a try. I had some minor peeling for about two days only, but nothing major. And it started helping! My giant pimples weren’t going away, but they were definitely shrinking! I’m nervous because I’ve heard there’s a major purge period around 2-3 weeks, so I’m crossing my fingers it doesn’t get too bad! In general, my skin is looking a little better though, so I’ve been thrilled! In the mornings when I wash my face (I only use the differin at night), my skin definitely feels more sensitive - the skin around my mouth and nose is a little dry and almost sore (if that makes any sense!), but I just make sure to use tepid water and load up on moisturizer and then I’m fine. I got the larger tube that supposedly will last for about 4-5 months. I’m curious to see how well it works over the next month or so as we head into much colder weather. As long as it keeps clearing my chin, it’ll be a definite repurchase!


Shave Products -Unlisted Brand -Cremo Cream

I use the men's version of this because there are more scents available.

This stuff is pricey up front but a tube of it lasts forever, so in the end it's really very cost-effective. I get an extremely close shave using just a plain old Bic Simply Soleil Click; at first, it's a little more difficult to see where you're shaving since there's no thick cream to guide you, but I got used to that pretty quickly. Works great for underarm shaving too. No razor burn or bumps at all. Only reason it's not a five-lippie product is that it leaves the skin on my legs very, very dry - but I have several lifetimes' worth of lotion, so that's not too much of a problem.

I was seduced by all the reviews and hype. I really regret spending so much on this. There is honestly nothing special about this. It’s an eye gel. It doesn’t moisturize that well, it goes on a bit sticky and it makes concealer go on quite patchy. I’ve been using this pretty regularly for over a year and if anything, my eyes look worse - I’m blaming aging, not this product, but the product sure hasn’t helped.

On the positive side, there’s no smell, and it doesn’t irritate my eyes. It’s not that it’s a bad product, but it’s not great and it’s obscenely expensive. Yes to Cucumbers eye gel is cheap and performs at the same level. Bottom line, this is just wayyyyyy too expensive for what it is. Would never rebuy.
