Eye Makeup Remover -The Body Shop -Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

on 12/11/2018 11:06:00 AM


I am crazy in love with this product!! It's honestly my most favorite make up remover to date. I always have trouble trying to remove my mascara especially. And just by using a tad bit of the product, i manage to remove my mascara effortlessly. It doesn't irritate my skin, and it doesn't sting my eye (when i started using it i was rlly afraid at first that it would sting me but so far so good) After removing i wash my face straight with a facial cleanser, and it leaves my skin feeling so fresh, i too it off with the Tea Tree facial cleanser from body shop as well, because i have oily and my skin is acne prone. I use my fingers to pick on my eyelashes to make sure i remove my mascara properly, and there wasn't any residue left! Unlike the other make up removers i use, i would thought that i rlly got every single inch of mascara off my lashes, but then i wake up the next morning and my eyes were panda like. This time with this product it rlly did justice. Definitely sticking to this for a long long time

Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand -The Inkey List Tumeric Cream Moisturizer

on 12/11/2018 10:31:00 AM


Turmeric is very trendy right now, and I believe it is a good antioxidant- but not the end all be all of antioxidants. Turmeric is just a good antioxidant that provides skin soothing benefits. I believe that skin needs several different beneficial ingredients instead of just focusing on one or two ingredients.

The nice thing about The Inkey List Turmeric Cream Moisturizer is that this also contains several other beneficial ingredients such as oat kernel, squalane, palmatic acid, vitamin e, lecithin, and more. This is a very hydrating moisturizer, but I could see how those with oily or normal skin could use it without finding it greasy or overly hydrating. With my dry skin this works well with my other moisturizers, since it is winter I've simply added this to my routine and it gave my skin extra hydration that it needed.

I also love that this is an affordable turmeric cream, well packaged, fragrance free, and does not contain drying alcohols. I do recommend using this in the evening because unless you use a primer with it foundation does not always sit well over this cream.
The only other downside to this is that it does have a strong turmeric (kind of like curry) scent to it when it is applied, but it does dissipate. If you are interested my video review can be seen here:

Cleansers -Aveeno -Aveeno Ultra Calming Makeup Removing Wipes

on 12/11/2018 10:28:00 AM


Been using these for years.. Love these except I wish there was no fragrance.. very gentle on my skin as long as im careful around the eyes. I have sensitive eyes and sometimes it irritates it a little when taking of mascara when I’m not gentle. A little expensive for drugstore wipes but worth it for how soft my face feels.

Lipstick -Kylie Cosmetics -Matte LipKit

on 12/11/2018 10:16:00 AM


I wanted and tried to love this product but couldn’t. The scent of the matte lipstick is unbearbly sweet and it doesn’t last as long. I could tell you colourpop is much better!!

The lip liner was great though. Sometimes on no makeup makeup days I’ll just wear it alone.

Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -tretinoin 0.05%

on 12/11/2018 10:15:00 AM


I’m using this after a horrific experience with Dermalogica products - skin smoothing cream- and a brief stint with ocm.. please don’t put oils on your face if your clog prone ** both of which left me with insanely clogged pores.. tretinoin Is working by pushing everything to the surface. Some pimples leave without much inflammation but others are inflamed, all leave red marks.. It’s been 2 months and I think my face will be clog free in another month or two. The first month was rough with peeling and redness but that goes away. Definitely need to listen to your skin and take days off if needed. My skin does look flaky under makeup but I use it everyday now because I’m trying to speed up the process but overall my skin is not sensitive to it anymore. I use tretinoin .025%. It’s expensive with my insurance so after my skin clears I will wean off. Plus my foundation doesn’t apply as nicely even though I gently exfoliate with a makeup wipe every morning and night. I use neutrogena hydro boost dry skin for the super dry places. Do not spread this stuff around your eyes, mouth, sides of nose as the skin is very thin.

Lips -Too Faced -Melted Chocolate Liquified Lipstick - Honey

on 12/11/2018 10:12:00 AM


It’s my third tube now. THE COLOUR OF CHOCOLATE HONEY IS GORGEOUS. It’s such a perfect nude with this glossy texture. Once you started applying it looks wonderful.

Though I would say that this thing does not last. It really doesn’t. You have to keep applying very very constantly throughout the day. It just doesn’t stay. I wish they could really improve the formula for this. As well as it gets really gooey during the day and leaves marks on the inside of your lips. It looks gross but this lipstick is like my guily pleasure. I hate it sometimes but I cant live without it.

Liquid -MILANI -Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer

on 12/11/2018 10:08:00 AM


I used to use revlon colorstay but switched over to this. Love how it’s full coverage but looks like skin. Works well in the summer when I get a little sweaty sometimes and lasts all day. Doesn’t break me out.

Cleansers -BIODERMA -Sensibio H2O Micellar Water

on 12/11/2018 10:05:00 AM


I can’t get enough of this product. I’d stopped counting how many bottles I’ve used because it’s just way too much. Ok, it removes makeup like miracle and feels great on the skin with this mild cooling sensation. I also don’t need to wash my face with any water after this (I feel like it’s better for the skin that way too). And it’s just great for my dry, somewhat-sensitive skin. I swear by this product and it will always be my number one cleanser!!

Palettes -Too Faced -Sweet Peach Glow Highlighting Palette

on 12/11/2018 8:31:00 AM


I bought this palette on impulse as I could not resist the entire packaging and concept of this series! Yes, I’ve been eyeing for close to 8 months before succumbing to purchasing them!

Background info: living in tropical, humid climate. Currently transitioned into a more oily combo, slightly dehydrated, acne prone skin type. Used to be an NC35 & now more of a NC25 as I don’t tan as much!

This is great for the everyday wearable, “natural”, glow from within skin look, without looking too cakey! The peach blush suits perfectly, although at the first sweep to my cheeks, I felt like the colour did not show up as much as I expected it to me.

Pigmentation in general is ok, and very buildable. The bronzer also matched perfectly as well, although I would say its more of an overall bronze. If you’re looking for a more harsh contour, this is not for you.

All the 3 shades have slight shimmer in them, which I believe its supposed to give the illusion of “glow from within” look. What I like most is that the shimmer is not extreme, a slight sheen which reflects beautifully on your skin even with a light wash. Even the highlighter can be used to highlight your brows.

Of course, how can I ever forget the scent! Yes, peach based scent. If you don’t like it, this is no go for you. But I’ve fallen in love with it since and haven’t been able to put down!

- Not colour friendly obviously. I cannot imagine anyone else darker than me ever using this cause I doubt the colours will show up on their skin.

- Price. On a steeper side but again, you’re really paying for the brand, packaging and overall the entire concept.

- Packaging is a bit bulky. Yes, it comes with a mirror! But not travel friendly.

All in all, i think this is the kind of product you’d want to splurge on, not an essential! I’m sure they’re cheaper alternatives out there, no doubt, but even so this has been my go-to palette every single day before going to work cause it has everything that i need in it! I also feel you need to know which brushes work the best for each shade so that the colours will show up nicely on your skin, which was what happened to me by trial and error.

Overall this can be your palette for the everyday look, casual, cute, natural, glow from within - which is the look that I’ve been going for the past few months.

I highly doubt I’d repurchase it, simply because I bought it as a one time splurge on a cute product, but I do think it does its job well, no further complaints with it.

Hopefully this review helps!

Concealers -Kryolan -DERMACOLOR Camouflage Cream

on 12/11/2018 8:24:00 AM


I've got nothing to add to the Kryolan-lovers' reviews except one thing: I'm 63. You'd think this would look like Grey Gardens on me. It doesn't. I use it on my nose (red) and to cover my bluish circles under my eyes. I use a areal Techniques concealer buffing brush and set it with Kryolan powder. You'd never know that I had anything on (I rarely wear another foundation) and it lasts until the moment I take it off 12 hours later.

Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%

on 12/11/2018 8:07:00 AM


I love Deciem products for their simplicity and effectiveness. Unfortunately I felt this serum has done nothing for my skin in any way. The formula feels sticky at first and will cause any water based treatments used before it to pill and flake even when you pat this into the skin. It’s moisturizing and sets quickly, however I will be trying another Vit C product from them when this is empty. (I might not even bother finishing this on my face, and just use it on the backs of my hands.) I had better and more immediate results with a crappy offbrand Vit C serum front winners.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Lustre Lipstick - Spice It Up

on 12/11/2018 7:56:00 AM


I have been wearing Spice it Up since it first came out over 16 years ago. It is a great mulberry red-brown shade. It is a lustre & all that comes with the lustre formula (light, juicy, usually surprisingly pigmented, forgiving but not as long lasting as other formulas). It is a gorgeous, impactful color. It packs more of an oomph than NARS Gypsy...not so much that much brighter, but just more pizaaz. It falls more into the red leaning berry family on me. Other shades in this category for me include NARS Gypsy & Revlon Spicy Cinnamon. Those aren't "dupes" for Spice it Up, but they are definitely more of that mulberry red with a hint of brown tone to it. Gypsy is more earthy than Spice it Up. Spicy Cinnamon is a bit more red on me. Spice it Up is a bit more siracha than both.

Final thoughts, this has been an instant classic shade for me that I have been wearing since I was 27 years old (now 44). It is gorgeous and impactful but at the same time forgiving on the lips. I love the look of this lip. I tried not to rebuy it recently but there was a void in my collection, so it was recently repurchased. And I am glad to have back in the fold. One of my favorite red-ish shades. I am nw20, deep winter, 3n brown-black hair.
