I adore this color, the perfect pink for me. Very easy to wear and feels great on the lips, too. I have a tube stashed everywhere <3


Treatments (Eye) -Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

foto

I've used this for years now and it's one of my favorite products that I will purchase for as long as they make it. Which is hopefully forever :) Very nourishing and hydrating. I use this every night before bed, during the day I use something with SPF.


Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Coconut Body Butter

foto

This smells so good, one of my favorite scents. It's a great body butter as well, leaves my skin baby soft and moisturized. I use it in the summer after a day out in the sun and in the winter for deep hydration and a scent pick me up. Actually, I love it year round haha


Liquid -Urban Decay - Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

foto

I'm such a big fan of this foundation! My skin is very sensitive and break out prone but I've never had issues with this whatsoever. My perfect match is 2.0, it applies really well, provides medium coverage that looks natural, stays put, doesn't oxidize and it's just overall the best foundation I've tried.


Foundations -Revlon - Youth fx

This is one of the foundations I have recently tried in my search for a new go-to HG foundation. When I purchased it there were literally no reviews on it anywhere because it had just hit stores so I knew I was taking a pretty big gamble, especially considering it's price tag. I believe I paid about $17 for it....ay yi yi. That kind of makes me feel ill.
First off the shade selection was minimal. I kept trying to decide between two shades and ended up choosing 150 Buff, even though I've never bought anything that says Buff in my entire life. The shade down was so pale I would have looked like a ghost and a shade up was too warm.
This foundation is a heavy thick cream consistency that does not blend into your skin. I've used a beauty blender, a brush, my fingers....nothing gets this stuff to sink into your skin, it just sits on top in a heavy heavy way.
The shade I chose was distinctively too yellow and made me look sick, but I continued on trying to blend it in to see what I was in fact dealing with and trying to give it a shot. After a lot of struggle I got it to look somewhat even.
It does NOT blur anything and it actually creases like crazy. It actually made me look older on every level, I'm 34. It is sooo heavy and it feels heavy on your skin. The coverage is patchy at best. It feels tacky and oily and never really set. I couldn't bear to powder cuz it already looked so heavy, but I did anyway because there was no other option to get it to set.
About an hour in it had pooled into my pores, slid into every crease that exists on my face and overall it was a hot mess.
This foundation is a huge fail on every level and is definitely not worth its price tag.
It doesn't do what it claims it does and actually does the opposite.
I wouldn't go near it if I were you. Revlon needs to discontinue this and quick. I don't even know how this got released, tbh. I've used a loooot of bad foundations but this one really takes the cake.


Cleansers -Clinique - Liquid Facial Soap - Oily skin

Very smooth yet foams really well. It does have that cooling, menthol feel others have talked about but if you're used to using Liquid Castile Peppermint Soap then this is barely there. I put it directly on my Foreo Luna Mini and move it around my face until everything is clean. I bought the tube instead of the pump for a two week vacation I took since it was cheaper and more compact. So far my sensitive, red, greasy, break out prone skin is very balanced: thoroughly clean yet super soft. Will continue using and probably repurchase.


Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder

Loved this product so much - very subtle if you use a light hand and keeps makeup matte without being drying, however I realised after a month or two that the random breakouts of cystic spots I was having (I rarely get spots and don't have particularly oily skin) was due to this powder 🙁 They only ever appeared in the spots I regularly dab powder - and to double check I applied to a few extra places on my face (like the perimeter of my face) and lo and behold broke out in a couple of large, long lasting ones there too, some of the worst I've ever had in fact as they are really resistant to usual remedies. Sad to have to let it go but it's really affected my skin so have to give it a thumbs down.


Gels/Soaps -Dr. Bronner's - Liquid Soap - All Scents

foto

When I first tried this soap years ago, I wasn't fond of it. It left my dry and itchy and I just ended up tossing it. Fast forward to a few months ago, I wanted to try again so I bought a little bottle and now I love it! Did they tweak the formula a bit? Now it's all I use, this soap and a washcloth. My favorite scent is the rose, green tea and cherry blossom. One lippie off because I cannot use the peppermint one, it dries me out, unlike the others.


BB Cream -Chanel - CC cream

This doesn't do oily skin any favors. I'm blotting twice a day. But that's normal for me so I'm nonplussed. It's normal. So +/- for me. The scent is pleasant like all chanel products. Chanel has ONE color selection (beige 30) I'm beige 20 NC20 so I was floored when the color "fit." [matched decently]. $$ product (USD$55) but worth it it's like a med coverage fdtn more than a CC. The only other CC I tried was Physicians Formula cheap crap nooo thanks. #winning


Eye Shadow -Tarte - Tarteist PRO Amazonian Clay Eye Shadow Palette

I must admit with all the bad reviews going around YouTube I hesitated buying this for a long time, even though I love the colours and in general the Tarte formula. Mention of poor swatches and muddy colours made me wait till the palette was out in stores to be able to feel them out myself. I have to say I was sold when I did.

I have been using this since April and love it. I find myself gravitating towards this because of how easy looks are. The reddish tones are my favourite and I find I can use all the colours together or with other palettes as they have some great natural tones. There have been concerns with the shimmers but I find for everyday work etc they are what I want - a pretty wash of colour with low glimmer shines. You can use the shadows in rows to create a more neutral look or a deep evening look. I also find the colours to be soft and not at all muddy, but rather more bendable than the Tartlette palette. The shades you might think twice over are the 4th column, they were meant to be used as eye-liner powders and I find I love using them to deepen a look without too much pigment.

If there was one thing I had to dislike it would be the powderiness of the shadows, there is high kick up. But again this is due to the soft formula.
I will definitely repurchase. But I am also looking forward to the warm colours in the Tartelette Toasted palette.
