I've been using this stuff for years but I'm using the liquid version not the bar. I have sensitive skin and it does not break me out at all. A little drying but I have oily skin so it's perfect for me.

Requires a lot of the product to get a good glow but the color is lovely as a highlighter.


Masks -Unlisted Brand -MediHeal Placenta Revital Essential Facemask

Picked up a box of these at Marshalls – it was perfect for a baby sprinkle spa weekend getaway weekend because placenta. Thankfully, no one was irked by the name and was willing to try anything that might give their skin a boost.

The mask was a very sturdy woven mask that was easy to handle. Takes a while for the excess product to soak in after you remove the mask, but overall my skin felt very hydrated. It remained plump & hydrated the next day. I have a huge stash of masks I need to get through before the expire dates, but I couldn’t help but reach for this one. As gross as the name might sound, if you could get past that, you will have extra juicy & plump skin.

Palettes -Too Faced -Just Peachy Velvet Matte Eye Shadow Palette

on 12/14/2017 8:08:00 PM

I hesitated for a long time before deciding to purchase this palette during the Sephora sale, because I have cool-toned skin and tend to wear cool colours plus I wasn't sure if these warm shades would look flattering on me. Well, I bit the bullet and have used most of the shades and have to admit I find them beautiful. You can create a subtle but sophisticated look for daytime with the range of warm neutral tones. I have not used the boldest shades yet such as peach sangria (fuschia-like) or peach punch (bright orange) but may experiment with them soon. Even the darkest shade, chocolate dipped, works well and is not too dry and patchy like the ones found in some palettes, such as the MAC one I own where you have to wet it to get enough pigment to use as a liner. I love these colours so much I'm thinking I'll have to add more warm-toned clothes to my wardrobe so I'll have an excuse to reach for this palette more often!
The packaging is also gorgeous with a compact metal case and magnetic closure.
The only con for me as others have mentioned is the peach scent. Although pleasant, I believe it's better to avoid fragrances on the face, especially around the delicate eye area. However, I have not experienced any irritation to date and I have very sensitive, watery eyes.

I really love the lip glass version! It has the same name as the lipstick. It's described as a light warm pink. It has no shimmer. The lipstick by itself was meh, but apply this lip glass over it, it's absolutely fabulous!!! I'm a mmm w/ yellow undertones, c4 skin with medium pink lips.

I'm a mmm w/yellow undertones, c4 skin. On my medium pink lips, this color goes on a matte pink-nude, reminiscent of Hug Me but not as cool. By itself, it's a lil meh on me, but looks Fabulous when you apply She Betta Werrrk lip glass on top.


Lipstick -Smashbox -Be Legendary Cream Lipstick - Legendary

I got this in delux sample size in Ipsy dec 2017 & it’s my “Gwen” [stefani] lipstick for when I want to channel Gwen’s Glam look!! I googled her name + red lipstick & this color came up even & coincidink I get it in my ipsy! I was using ELF SMLC in Rich Red which is nice for $3USD but this is $25! U can tell a big difference. This wears well like 3-4 hours fades into a nice stain red lipstick is high maintenance (like me!) I hate having to constantly check it//touch it up but it makes you feel like no other—a sexy glamourpuss sex kitten vixen! Pair it w a heavily powdered matte face, brows & wings so sharp they could cut a man. This is my GabrielleChanel/MarilynMonroe/AnnaNicole/CourtneyLove/bombshell lipstick. Be legendary!

Lips -Unlisted Brand -Perfectly Pure - Vitamin E Moisturizing Stick

I'm a guy, and I don't wear makeup, but it is so hard to find hypoallergenic chapstick that doesn't make the problem worse or cause reddening or pigmentation of the lips (which is bad for guys) So this little 99cents chapstick smoothes out the cracks in my lips and heals the cracked sides of my mouth. This works better than expensive chapsticks without the chemicals and "plumping" chemicals in them that are also a tiny bit embarrassing as a man.

This is the perfect chapstick for allergic people.

Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Primer

I have short asian lashes and I love this more than I love my HG Voluminous in Carbon Black mascara. I wear them together. I didn't know i needed this until I finally bought it. Before buying this, I would get little smudges of mascara under my eyes even when using waterproof, but this completely changed that. I wear it right after curling my lashes and then I immediately apply waterproof voluminous mascara so that my curl holds. I absolutely love this and I think it's probably one of the best mascara primers out there, especially for its price. Your mascara goes on so much smoother and it stays on because the primer gives it something tacky to stick to. Its packaging is also sleek and elegant, although I do think the entire voluminous line is sleek and elegant. Mascara primer is so underrate right now but trust me, this is a game changer.

Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

This was not a good mascara for my straight asian lashes. The packaging was cute and I had read that it was a dupe for better than sex so I decided to buy it. I got the waterproof one because you need waterproof if your lashes don't hold curls well. I wore it over the loreal lash primer and this just started out super clumpy and dry, it didn't look good at all. I gave it a few more tries, I wiped off as much product as possible but it still came out clumpy. I think the brush is hard to work with because it's so chunky so things got pretty messy, especially considering my lashes were pretty short to begin with. I ended up returning this and I'm sticking with my loreal voluminous carbon black waterproof mascara.

Dry Shampoo -Cake Beauty -The All Powderful Tinted Dry Shampoo

on 12/14/2017 6:25:00 PM

Very excited to get this product, but I guess I had set my hopes way too high. I purchased it after making a switch to cruelty free products. First thing I noticed was how easily messy it gets; maybe I just got a dud but product spills out even when I close the lid shut. As for performance, I find that I have to use a lot of product to see a dramatic difference; I prefer to use it on days where my hair isn't entirely oily and just needs a bit of a pick me up. If I use it when my hair is incredibly oily I end up using too much product and it builds up on my scalp and makes it a bit itchy.


Lip Treatments -NYX -Butter Balm

on 12/14/2017 6:22:00 PM

I love the tube butter glosses formula, color and smell wise. But this one I do not like. The worst part is the smell, it's like some very acidic fruit or vitamin C pill. I just couldn't stand it. It was that way in several colors I tried, all the same smell.

The formula was just okay. You could use it as a light balm, but if your lips are dry it will not smooth them out visibly during wear, so if you want it for that, pass on this. It's not that rich or thick. It's super, super light to the point of likely only working well on lips that are not dry already.

I had to get rid of mine due to the smell being intolerable.


Mascara -L'Oreal -Waterproof Voluminous Carbon Black

This is my holy grail mascara. I always come back to this because it makes my short straight asian lashes hella voluminous. If your eyelashes don't hold curls very well then you need to use waterprrof mascara because it's oil based as opposed to water based. I always wear this over the l'oreal mascara primer and it never smudges when the two are put together. I also loved the sleek packaging. I will say that it can get clumpy after like three coats so I brush it out with an old cleaned mascara brush, focusing on the tips because I like the base to be the most voluminous. I would definitely recomend this.

Lip Treatments -Vaseline -rosy lips

I knew this would have a bit of an odor, but I wasn't prepared for how sharp and acidic it was. It smelled like a really strong vitamin C pill. The odor did not wear off quickly when worn either. It had a nice formula and the color is a nice subtle wash of color, but oh my the smell. If you are expecting a rose scent, this doesn't smell like anything but a sharp vitamin C pill. I tried it one time and had to get rid of it, the smell was just too much.
