Liquid -Max Factor -Lasting Performance Long Lasting Make-Up

foto

Over the last few years I have always bought expensive high-end foundations thinking that they were the only way to go. This foundation has made me completely change my mind. I think it's great. It goes on smoothly, doesn't cling to dry patches, actually lasts all day on my oily skin, has a matte finish without being cakey. The only negative is that it does oxidize, I definitely look slightly more orange at the end of the day than after I've put it on in the morning. I also like the packaging because it is lightweight, the more expensive bottles look great but are heavy and clunky. I am actually slightly annoyed at myself for spending a fortune on expensive foundations over the years and still being disappointed. Overall I think this is a good one for those with oily skin who need their foundation to last.

Tinted Moisturizer -Glossier -Perfecting Skin Tint

I jumped on the glossier bandwagon because who doesn't want that minimalist, fresh, cool-girl look! I have this in light, which probably doesn't make much difference because the product is so sheer. It has a very watery consistency that makes it easy to spread. I have dry skin with the odd blemish, but I feel better with some coverage to even things out and add some glow. This product is SO difficult to detect on my skin- as in- it's hard to tell whether I even put it on or not, even with liberal application.

Unlike other reviewers, I do not feel like a grease ball after applying this even after a full day of wear. The main issue for me is that the effect is just too subtle to make a difference. I have found use for this product by mixing with others to adjust the colour and sheerness- currently I am mixing it with a Bareminerals tinted moisturizer that is a smidge too dark. The resulting blend is still a bit sheer but better than the Glossier tint on it's own. I will use the product up in this way, and may try different combinations.

I am on the fence about the packaging because it can be difficult to get the product out, but I like that you can see how much product is left in the bootle. At 32$ CAD I do not think this is good value all considered.

Loose Powders -Rimmel -Silky Loose Face Powder

I love this product. I bought it this morning and "baked" my face with it, I honestly didn't expect it to work this good! The areas I applied it to felt really silky and smooth. It matted my face perfectly and set the foundation and concealer really good. It didn't transfer on my fingers when I touched my face, which was the most important thing I looked for in powder, because I used to hate it when my friends touched my face randomly and would move my make-up or take it off; this powder kept it in place for so long and also the feeling wasn't sticky and tacky like it usually is with make-up. I also applied it on my eyelids before putting eyeshadow on-my eyelids didn't get creasy all day long and the colors lasted for wayyy too long than normal! It also kept my oils in really good; I got shiny after 7-8 hours after wearing it and it wasn't even that noticable, considering that I was struggling with really shiny and oily T-zone. It's been 11 hours now without re-touching my make-up and it's really as the same as I applied it in the morning! I love this and I don't think I'll be using another loose powder than this one. Amazing job for its price and great packaging!

Eye Shadow -E.L.F. -Nude Rose Gold

on 1/16/2018 12:09:00 PM

Sigh - this was one of the more disappointing palettes I've purchased. I had high hopes b/c it's e.l.f and this particular palette had fans raving about it. I picked it up at Target and took it home to swatch - the swatches themselves were disappointing but I figured I'd give the palette a try on my eyes to see if anything improved. It got worse. There is virtually no pigmentation in the shadows and they are chalky. While I didn't experience much kick up with my brush, I found it took a really heavy hand to get even a modicum of color on my lids. I tried every single shade and they all performed the same. In fact, it became a muddy mess where pretty much every shade looked the same. There wasn't a scent and I did like the large mirror and the packaging. That said, I did end up donating the palette.


Loose Powders -Vichy -Dermablend Setting Powder

I got this to go with the dermablend foundation which I love for covering blemishes (I use it as a concealer as it would be way too thick/cakey as an all-over foundation) however it is extremely cakey and looks terrible after a couple of hours (it seems to semi-dissolve the foundation?)

Its not cheap either! Do yourself a favour and skip this and just buy a normal powder to set the foundation. It also has high levels of talc which you wouldn't expect in an expensive product


Highlighters -E.L.F. -Studio Illuminating Palette

Thanks to MUB, I have been shopping my stash and started using this little amazing palette for all my h/l needs. I forgot how amazing this product is, well, all of e.l.f in general is the bomb and this palette is no different. I especially LOVE the price point considering other brands offer the same product for at least 5x more and those don't always perform as well as this palette. I can't recall where or how I heard about this, I just remember seeing it in Target and knowing I had to have it as it was only $6 for 4 different shades. Hell, I paid $8 for ONE CP highlighter so this is definitely a great deal for a great product. I apply with my RT setting brush and I will say that the product does dust up when picked up with the brush, but it's not that big of a deal and I can go back with the same brush to pick up the excess product and apply it. There is no scent, the product is creamy and blends easily, and there is a shade for just about every skin tone and every use. I've used these for shadow as well. I love the large mirror and the classic matte black packaging as well. I am definitely a renewed fan of e.l.f and when it's time to buy again, I will definitely hit up this brand because they are continuously stepping up their game!

Cleansers -Mario Badescu -Enzyme Cleansing Gel

I LOVE THIS STUFF. I use it in the morning (because it doesn't really remove makeup). I barely wet my face and then I rub a small amount on my face for 20 seconds. Then I wait another 30 seconds to give it even more time to work. Rinses easily. The result is smoother skin than when I woke up. It's fairly expensive but the big bottle has lasted over two months. I got the little bottle for travel during a half price day at Ulta. I wish I could have bought them for every woman in my family but Ulta limits it.


Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand -Himalaya Herbals Age Defying Hand Cream

on 1/16/2018 11:42:00 AM

Good hand cream, fast absorbing and leaves the hands soft. It doesn’t form a water-resistant film on the hands like other creams so you have to reapply after each hand washing. As with all Himalaya products, the scent is strong but quite generic. I wish it would come in a smaller tube for the handbag.


Masks -H & M -Argan oil and rosehip oil - Hydrating face mask with shea and cocoa butter

on 1/16/2018 11:21:00 AM

This is definitely the worst face mask I’ve ever used. It dried my face so much that I had to take it off after a few minutes. My skin felt so tight! I can’t believe they advertise it for dry skin.


Cleansers -DHC -Deep Cleansing Oil

I wanted to like this as it had great reviews and I'm really into korean skincare. I got this as a 30ml trial size from feelunique which was £8 and a pretty good idea if you want to try it

It smells like olive oil and looks like olive oil. I feel like it has clogged my pores and I have had more breakouts as well as more little bumps on my skin - was hoping it was purging but it doesn't seem like it, and since I've stopped using it my skin has got better

It does take makeup off but i still have to scrub quite a lot to remove mascara
