Lipstick -L'Oreal Paris -Colour Riche - Nature's Blush

I love the color, and the packaging. I would have given this color, Nature's Blush, a 5, if it were a bit more long lasting. But it does look great on me and my very pale skin color. It's not really a nude on me, but a nice rose that I think would look good on just about any skin tone.

Eye Shadow -Fenty Beauty by Rihanna -Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette

I'm in love with this palette!

Beware, it's a pressed glitter palette, not a shimmer or metallic shadow palette. If you don't like glitter, this is definitely not for you. These shadows definitely have to be used with a tacky base, such as a glue.

These shadows are so multidimensional. No amount of swatches in videos or photos does them justice. Most of them have a triple or duochrome effect as well as multicolored glitter. Some perform a bit better as eyeshadow toppers, these are the ones with not a super opaque base. But others are more than fine on their own (ofc over the sticky eyeshadow base). Even the ones with a less opaque base, I enjoy wearing on their own for a cool, glitter when the light hits effect on the eyelids.

Was going to type my favorite, but they're essentially all my favorites! I think the green at the top is the standout for me, though. It gives a similar effect to a Stila liquid glitter eyeshadow, it's SO glittery, reflective, and gorgeous. I own nothing else like it.

The only disappointing color for me is the dark blue because it has no glitter but it also doesn't have enough pigment to be desirable as a regular metallic eyeshadow. A bit of a bust. The rest though are stunning, eye catching, and SO unique. They last all day on me without creasing. The palette is an investment but to me it's worth it because buying a bunch of individual glitters would be a lot more expensive.

Lipstick -Maybelline New York -24 Hour super stay

foto

This lipstick definitely stays put until I use the makeup remover. I found it dry on my lips and I apply lip balm over the colour. The colour doesn’t budge even after eating and drinking so great for wearing in situations where you can’t reapply your lipstick. Only downside is that there is not a huge range of colour choices where I found some colours were either too metallic or too dark for my skin tone. Otherwise, this is a great all day lipstick for a great price.

Lipstick -Unlisted Brand -Color The World

I am very surprised by the negative reviews here. I bought the neutrals bundle about four months ago, and now own 8 of these lipsticks. They feel better than any lipstick I've tried, and I own over 50 lipsticks. They are creamy with a wonderful finish. My favorite right now is Cashmere, which is a perfect MLBB for me. GNO is the only red I can wear, since other lipsticks feather around my mouth.
I can't speak to their customer service, as I've never had to use it. But as far as cost, they are not expensive. There are always sales. RIght now, with the sale going on, each lipstick is $13.00.
Maybe I've been lucky, but I like every color I have. In addition to the Neutrals bundle, I have Flawless and Independent, which work as pinkish MLBB for me.

Lipstick -Maybelline New York -Color Drama

foto

I had only the #110 Pink So Chic for a while which I used seldomly and then I rediscovered the product and ventured into getting two more colours - #140 Minimalist and #310 Berry Chic. I love the creamy and velvet smoothness of the application and how pigmented the colour shows on my lips that was true to the color and I only needed to apply once. Definitely doesn’t feather out and lasts quite a bit prior to eating and drinking so quite impressed, yet it did dry my lips a little after a while. Will be using these lipsticks more often.

Treatments (Eye) -La Mer -The Eye Concentrate

I was cursed with insanely dark under eye circles. For years I wondered if this cream would be the answer to my worries but couldn't justify spending so much. When I finally did, I was really disappointed. Yes, it is very moisturizing and wears great under makeup, but a lot of eye creams do that. I have been using this cream for about 3 months day and night and have noticed absolutely no difference in my dark circles. It smells great and the metal applicator helps to de-puff, but if you're thinking about spending $200 in hopes of lightening your dark eye circles, save your money.

Sunscreen -Mineral Fusion -Mineral SPF 40 Facial Moisturizer

I bought for my mature, combo skin to avoid sun damage at the beach or when outdoors for extensive periods. I found that I didn't make it to the water or pool very often but when I did apply it, found it to be so heavy, greasy and thick, with a white residue, that I looked blanched if I didn't wear makeup over it, and if I did apply cosmetics, they slid right off. I will keep it until it expires in case I make it to the beach or spend more time exposed outdoors, but I can't say I liked this product or will purchase again. It wasn't cheap.

Blush -Hourglass Cosmetics -Ambient Lighting Powder Blush - Mood Exposure

I have tried sooo many blushes-high end, drugstore, powder, cream, stain etc., and this is BY FAR the best. It looks so natural, and truly gives that lit from within glow. My cheeks look so healthy and pretty, the formula just sinks in. While the price is high, it is worth every penny. I look forward to trying other colors.

Sunscreen -La Roche-Posay -Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid

Nope. Nope. Nope. This stuff is runny, gritty and leaves a thick white mask on your face. I bought it because I thought I needed a strong physical barrier during the summer months, but I found it so unpleasant to apply that I just avoided the beach and extended outdoor activity. I hate to waste anything, especially expensive skincare products, but I know I won't use it before it expires in March 2019 so into the garbage it goes. Next time I experiment it will be with something cheaper.


Mascara -L'Oreal Paris -Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof

foto

I bought this with high hopes hoping it would do better than its competitor Too Faced BTS waterproof mascara and honestly I found Lash Paradise waterproof mascara a good dupe but not my HG. BTS ups this just by a small notch in that LP is a tad dry and does not give as much volume as I was expecting. But what does make this a great mascara for me is that the price is affordable, it didn’t flake, held the curl well and definitely was waterproof. The brush is similar to BTS and applied well, except it was hard to apply on the corners but it did its job. I like both of these mascaras and to me there’s no competition but LP is definitely the cheaper alternative.
