Lip Gloss -Marc Jacobs -Lust for Lacquer - Lip Vinyl Sheer

WTF is in this gloss?! It felt uncomfortable and irritated the outer part of my lips even with only a minute of wear. This is extremely rare for me.

No thank you!


Treatments -TheFACEShop -Rich Hand Special Care Hand Mask

on 1/21/2018 6:49:00 AM

These are sheet masks for your hands. They`re basically plastic gloves filled with a lotion which you`re supposed to slip on your hands for 15-20 minutes, after which you massage the extract into your hands. The sheets advertise sunflower seed oil and urea as the main active ingredients, but if you look carefully at the ingredient list, those ingredients are way at the bottom. As far as hydration, they`re also less than impressive: I`ve used them alone, also with a good helping with hand cream, and the results only last until a morning handwash. I wouldn`t bother with these hand masks, a good hand cream does a far superior job.

Cleansers -Laneige -Laneige Multi Cleanser

foto

I purchased this right away after I saw this product description, hoping this the right cleanser for me.

With white colour, creamy texture and subtle scent, I thought this is a soft cleanser that wouldn't strip my skin. After I washed my face, contrary of what some people said this leave squeaky clean feeling, I felt this didn't leave squeaky feeling. But I read one person reviewing this cleanser and I surprised this have high ph level, 8. It's proven acne prefer to grow on high ph level, which is up to 7, while lower ph level never loved by acne.

This product claiming it's for all skin types, removes make up and exfoliate skin. First, with high ph, clearly this is not a safe cleanser for acne prone skin like me. Second, I still have makeup left on my cotton pads even after double cleansing and I used this cleanser as second cleanser. And third, I never feel this exfoliate my skin. I also never feel clean after washing my face use this cleanser. For product that get spot on Sephora, this packaging somehow looks cheap for me.

As cleanser, this don't do the job. Won't repurchase this.


Masks -Skinfood -Egg White Pore Mask

foto

I really think this product have misleading name.

I don't understand why it named egg white pore if this for reducing pores. Why use word white? This makes people think this product can tone up their skin.

I hate this product. It's so hard to wash it off and it's a mess. The texture quite thick with white color, reminds me of whipped cream. I can smell loads of fragrance in this product, not a fan of the fragrance in skincare. Also this came with cheap plactic jar and no spatula include. So unhygienic!

I finished one tub and did it help reducing my pores? Nope. I can feel my skin smoother but it's only for a moment. Also, I never feel this cleaning my pores and I always sense this always leave residue on my skin even after I washed it for a long time.

Treatments (Face) -Mario Badescu -Vitamin C Serum

foto

I don't hate this product. It just don't wow me.

When I applied this product, I need to slap this quickly on my face. Leaks so badly. I thought this have watery texture but turns out it has oily texture, weird. I can feel warm sensation and slight tingling when it absorbed into my skin.

The result is, I can see my face brighter and my acne scars fade a little bit. I was so happy the next day I saw the results. But the more I used it, I think the results become so-so. No brightening, no improvement in acne scars. But on the positive side, I can see my skin texture smoother, but only a tiny bits.

I know there's other more expensive vitamin c serum but I think this is not cheap. Wouldn't repurchase this.

Scrubs -Skinfood -Rice Mask

foto

I purchased this mask because of good reviews on internet and it's affordable.

With quite runny consistency, this glides smoothly on my skin. I can feel soft granules inside this mask and this reminds me of porridge texture, except this is for face and have fragrance. After I wash my face, I can see my overall skintone brighter.

But I don't like this product. I don't understand why people say this have pleasant or soft fragrance. For me this have strong fragrance and not a nice one. I also don't like the packaging. Like other mask Skinfood have, this came with cheap looking plastic jar and the lid too thin! Mine was broken even though I never use strengh to open the lid. Also no spatula,yuck.

I can feel my skin soften after use this but it's not like baby's butt skin, like other people said. And the effect dissappeared the next day I woke up. Will never repurchase this, there's so many better masks than this.


Makeup Brushes -Coastal Scents -22 brush peice brush set

on 1/21/2018 6:15:00 AM

Purchased this set in "Orchid" (purple) and I'm really happy with them so far. At $19.98 on sale, the entire set was the cost of 1 brush in many lines. Have washed them with no problem. Will update if they start to shed or fall apart. A few of the brushes aren't quite as dense as they could be, but since I prefer a lighter application of product, they are great for me. And the purple looks so cute.


Concealers -Maybelline -Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

I bought this when I ran out of YSL Touche Éclat and balked at the price of buying a new one. I only bought it on a whim because I had heard it was a good dupe and when it comes to the eye area I think it does an excellent job. I have been using this for over a year now to cover and brighten any darkness and dark circles around my eyes and I think it performs really well. It is light and gentle and smoothes over easily and doesn’t irritate the skin and lasts all day. It also lasts for absolutely ages and as long as you take care of the brush it lasts much longer than the YSL. I use this in colour no. 2 and I used the shade 2.5 in YSL Touché Éclat, it doesn’t have quite as much yellow in but it has enough, in addition to this it doesn’t have that terrible pinkness that is in the YSL number 2 and which is super visible in daylight. As a concealer to be used for dark circles and darkness around the eye area I think this is excellent and considering it costs about a quarter of the price of YSL here in Denmark I am so pleased I tried it!

Liquid -NYX -Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation

on 1/21/2018 6:01:00 AM

foto

This foundation has me SO confused. I'm quote torn about it. But in sum,
Pros:
- buildable, medium-full coverage
- works with both a sponge and brush
- good size for travel
- doesn't break down with my oily skin, stays put on my face a whole day out (~12 hours)
- great shade range, i usually have trouble finding foundations that match my fair yellow-undertone skin.
Cons:
- very expensive for how small it is
- glass bottle (bougie for drugstore but i'm clumsy)
- you cannot layer ANY cream product over this, even before you set it with powder. You will not for the life of you be able to cream contour/ highlight or use cream blush with this foundation because for whatever reason it will come right off. I can't even use most of my concealers on top of it, when i use this foundation i have to conceal before. Like it sort of sets into this film over your face, and any cream broduct breaks it down in those areas and makes your complexion look patchy.

I still use this because it was quite costly for nyx and i don't want to throw it out, and it's not horrible, i just wouldn't repurchase it. I have to be very methodical about what products i want to use with it because it doesn't seem to agree with many. A bit too much of a hassle considering it's not the best thing that's ever been on my face (no innuendo).

Skincare -Kiehl's -Facial Fuel Eye De-Puffer

This is my go to product any time I wake up with puffy eyes. It works on puffiness underneath my eyes and it also works on those horrible mornings when you wake up with huge puffy heavy eyelids. I’ve had this product for ages and it has never let me down. I only use this product specifically for puffy eyes and it works every time and never causes any irritation.


Highlighters -NYX -Professional Makeup Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette

on 1/21/2018 5:29:00 AM

foto

To me this is a very average highligher palette, I don't understand why almost everyone seems to give it glowing reviews. It's not bad by any means, just not as great as i expected it to be from reading and watching tonnes of other reviews. When i use a regular highlighting brush to apply this i feel like it doesn't pick up much of the undertone of each colour (which was disappointing because part of the reason i bought this palette was because i liked its colour range) and only deposits the shimmery particles on my face, which makes it look a bit like glittery eyeshadow fallout and not like i applied highlighter. I also find the formula to be quite dry and powdery, which makes it hard to layer without looking chalky. Because of its texture, i also find it doesn't melt nicely into my base makeup and just sits on top of the skin. Not a horrible palette but there are definitely better drugstore highliters, like the elf baked highliters for example. Would not repurchase and will probably just give it away to a friend.

Blush -Marc Jacobs -Air Blush in 506 - Flesh and Fantasy

on 1/21/2018 5:22:00 AM

One of the worst high end blushes I've ever tried. Has almost no colour pay off and is way too overpriced for what it is. I have 2 shades of this and both are so pale i don't know how anyone with a skin tone darker than mine can possibly use it. I've tried it with different brushes and with each they all apply the same so i know its not that, and i know its not because it's not transferring onto the skin because i see the layers of it on, just no colour. I honestly don't understand why so many people seem to love this, i get a ubtle blush but this is straight up invisible


Eye Shadow -Laura Mercier -Caviar Stick Eye Colour (all colors)

foto

I originally purchased the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Au Natural which is so easy to apply and store. This would have been the ideal crease colour but this shade does not work on my skin tone and looks orangey making my eyes look tired and sickly. I tried it as an all over shadow at first which made me look unwell and also tried lightly applying to crease only and blend out but it still looks very thick and heavy on my eyes especially when layered with powder eye shadows. I ended up returning this to Sephora since I couldn't make it work and at this price point close to $40 each, it has to be pretty amazing for me to keep it. I exchanged this for the Laura Mercier Caviar stick in Blossom which is amazing. It's a pink colour that on my light skin tone looks cool tone peachy pink. I just apply this to my crease and blend with fingers and have a natural peachy look with just one product. Just need to apply liner to bottom lashes and am done with my eyes for low maintenance days. Great product. Love love love!


Primer/ Corrector -Too Faced -Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Skin Perfecting Primer

on 1/21/2018 5:16:00 AM

This may as well be my new holy grail primer. I'm an oily gal, with pores and rosacea to add into the mix. This primer does a pretty good job at:
-minimizing pores
-controlling oil release
-hiding redness
All in all i loved it, and my makeup was mattefied and held in place for a long time.
Love it!

Treatments (Face) -La Mer -The Regenerating Serum

on 1/21/2018 5:14:00 AM

foto

I was given a sample of this when I purchased La Mer cream. This tiny sample is one tenth of an ounce, or 3 ml. But as you only use a drop, it is enough for a few days. When I ran out of my half ounce jar of La Mer, I used the serum. It is a nice serum, non-irritating and pleasant to use, but I see that it has way too many ingredients that I don't want. That's the only thing I don't like about it. I just want a few simple ingredients so there's less chance of a skin reaction. So I will not be buying this product, only the cream when I can afford it.

Update: I was so wrong to be afraid of the ingredients. I used it in desperation when I ran out of the cream and the results were magnificent. Skin like a baby's, no irritation, wonderful smooth feeling, nice mild scent. I am so in love with it. I went to buy it and it's $400! One size only. Sob!
