Smells very coconuty. Lathers fine and rinses easily. It does dry out my skin though. So I have to lotion after using. Very affordable.


Loose Powders -NYX - HD Studio Finishing Powder

I've used this for about 4 months, hated it as time went on, now I can't stand using it. It is a very powdery messy formula like flour. I was expecting finely milled but okay, AT FIRST my makeup looks nice so that's fine? Wrong! I have combination skin (oily tzone dry cheeks). Within the 30mins between doing my makeup and leaving the house I look in the mirror and see little patches of shine already gathering in specific areas. At this point it looks okay, slightly too dewy in the wrong places, but okay, so I add more of this flour in just those areas. Two hours later and the foundation has already started to give me new wrinkles. It has faded, moved, migrated, transferred everywhere. Ive used this foundation (Nars - luminous weightless foundation) for years now and it works so great normally, but no matter what I do, how many times I touch up, this powder just seems to *break everything down*. The two products don't work together at all, nor does this powder seem to work with my concealers. It causes my foundation/concealer/anything to crease and wrinkle because it's just slipping and sliding around every crevice on my skin. My makeup literally congeals, there will be shiny blobs of makeup in patches on my forehead. The frustrating thing is, I barely put on any foundation there! But I do powder my TZone a lot, and that is exactly where the pooling hits me worst, these are honestly the places I need least coverage, my cheeks however are scarred and freckled with a lot of redness. And because I have dry skin here I use less powder yet the makeup seems to look less ugly here, but patchy nonetheless. To top off this greasy mess, it has also oxidised, so I'm now looking like I've aged, tanned and melted at work. I don't know why this didn't work for me, as it's worked for many others, but I really gave it a long trial and finally give up on it. I tried to save a few bucks, but I'm going back to the MAC prep+prime finishing powder, which is so much finer, and silky, and actually has true holding power for me without changing the colour of my skin. Thumbs down Nyx.

Loose Powders -Laura Mercier - Translucent Loose Powder

This powder was just okay for me. I wish it kept my face from getting oily so quick. The packaging is beautiful I must say, but don't think the price tag should be what it is. For my full review head over to my blog beautybyprincessmaitland@gmail.com


Cleansers -Clinique - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

I'm a difficult person to wow, but this stuff is truly amazing! It's actually the first ever thing that YouTube made me buy.
Recently I've watched Desi Perkins video where she was removing a very heavy black eye makeup using this balm. Definitely, the video wasn't showing everything from beginning till the end without cuts, but it made me wonder if this thing will be able to remove my mascara and eyeliner without leaving the traces of makeup. I went to Ulta and bought a travel size (6.50$ with taxes 0.5oz / 15ml).
OMG this stuff is HG! All my life I struggled with raccoon eyes in the mornings. Not fully raccoon, but some traces were always left, no matter how many products I've used to remove my eye makeup. My lashes were falling out from rubbing, but my makeup was staying on....
This balm:
- it removes my mascara and eyeliner trace free in 30 seconds;
- I don't need to rub it strong into my eyes, very gentle circular motion work perfectly;
- it doesn't leave a residue;
- doesn't dry out my skin;
- I don't need to use any other product to fully remove my makeup. I still go with my regular face wash all over the face afterward, and I use Clinique balm on my eyes only, since my face makeup is minimal.
- my eyes are very sensitive and I can use.

This stuff is amazing! try it you won't regret!
If you're planning to use it on your eyes only travel size is should be enough for 6 months before it will expire.

Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

I love this I have extremely dry rosacea prone skin and this is made in conjunction with Skindanavia (the holy trail of setting sprays). However, this is oil free and as my rosacea hates oil it is a must.
Agree with the reviewers who say it takes the powder look away. I'm a bit of an 80s girl with my makeup as in powder after foundation dust off excess and this makes me look more natural. Not sure about partying in it all night as I can't do that anymore but it definately makes my face last longer and given my commute to work is just over 1.5 hours each way it needs to last.


Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Life Flo - Pure Rosehip Seed Oil

I am very satisfied with the product, it is very effective for wrinkles, scars left by acne, and uneven skin tone.This is the best serum to use after a night-time moisturizer cream. The most important thing is that it does not clog the pores. Price is also excellent. Want 5% off on iHerb ? Apply DAN2945.


Moisturizers -Andalou Naturals - Acai + White Tea Oil-Free Moisturizer

It gives long-lasting hydration, absorbs fast, is non-greasy and doesn't cause acne. The only complain is that it contains a minor amount of essential oils which are irritating. Want 5% off on iHerb? Apply DAN2945.
