McoBeauty Makeup Remover Balm
2.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

This could have been released as a all purpose balm, but it should never have been released as a makeup remover. Its meant to be the first step for a double cleanse to remove makeup, for sensitive skin. Its a pink tinted thick waxy balm that comes in a pretty pink windup tube like a giant flat chapstick. The packaging is awesome, swiping a remover directly on my face from a giant stick appeals to me somehow and its less mess/more travel friendly compared to oils or digging fingers in a pot. ModelCo / MCo Beauty claim on the back of the packaging it has real rose flower water to gently yet powerfully cleanse sensitive skin while protecting against redness and hydrating. Unfortunately it doesn't work at all for its intended purpose (although it works for another purpose, which I'll explain later). Its such a thick dry wax it doesn't spread easily over the face, doesn't "melt" to an oil, doesn't emulsify when water added, doesn't remove makeup, just smears over a thick layer of wax. It then takes alot more cleanser and work to get off all the layer of wax it deposited on skin. Its not great for sensitive skin as advertised. I don't know if its the strong scent, or the dyes they used, but it It irritates and itches my face. The scent reminds me of cheap pot pourri toilet spray, or dusty dried old rose petals. I wish it was a more pleasant fresh rose. Contains the dyes Red 21 Lake, Red 27 Lake, and Yellow 5 Lake. Yellow lake is banned in some European countries linked to things like skin irritation, allergies, hyperactivity, and reducing male virility. Why I gave it 2 stars is it makes a good skin softening hand balm for extremely dry hands, and dry cracked heels at night. I gave it to my friend who gets dry hands as she has to wash her hands alot. She says if she puts a thick layer all over her hands, the moisture lasts through several hand washings and keeps them smooth and soft.

LASHXTEND Lengthening Mascara

I honestly thought I’d reviewed this years ago! I have been using this for years!!!! I tried the L’Oreal tubing mascara years ago, and of course they discontinued it here in Australia. Then Revlon brought one out. It was terrible. I shelled out for the Kevin Aucoin, which was ok, but $43 and it was pretty lumpy and hard to work with and and it dried out within a month or so. I had one of those days where I went out without mascara accidentally and as I’m blonde, that’s not cool. I grabbed this at the supermarket on sale for $8 and put it on in the car and nearly fainted. BEST mascara! Fanned out, no clumps, dark enough, volumising AND lengthening! It wasn’t until I removed it, that I realized that it was a tubey tubing one!!! Perfect for my sensitive eyes!!!! I grabbed three more in case they were discontinuing them as well. They didn’t, they changed the packaging from hot pink to white, which is much nicer, and the colour is less blue black than it was, but I prefer it now. It’s still quite pricey for a supermarket product, but I stock up when it’s on sale. (Oh, it doesn’t stain wash cloths either)

Lip Lights Ultra Shine Gloss

A pricey basic sheer shimmery gloss with a (handy) mirror on the side and (useless) light. I brought Pink Sea Shell (milky sheer shimmer) and Coral (peachy pink sheer shimmer). Both give a basic sheer tint to the lips with some fine shimmer. Faintly scented like canned apricots or Fruit Burst candies. Slippery, non sticky feel. Average lasting time, around 1 - 2 hours. Packaging is sharp and clunky, and scratches other compacts in your bag. The brush is one of those hairy ones that splay everywhere. The light sounds life-changing but its a gimmic. I've had several over the years and if you're ever in a place so dark you need a light no-one can see your lips anyway, and the light isn't bright enough to give you enough light to see anything. The batteries wear out before you finish the gloss. Or have died before you even get buy them (my last two I recently brought from the ModelCo website the light was dead). I prefer ModelCo's "Shine Ultra Light Reflective Lip Gloss" which has the handy mirror on the side but no light, packaging is smooth and sleek, standard doefoot applicator, and the shades are more pigmented.
