Mascara -Maybelline -Lash Sensational Mascara

Love the brush soo much.

the formula is good tbh and I'm quite picky with how I like my lashes (I like them whispy and thick at the root, NEVER clumpy or spider looking, I'm all bout that volume).

the trick is: curl your lashes if you need to (mine are straighter than richard burke), and then place the concave part of the brush (the inner part of the C shaped brush) against your lash roots... aaaand WIGGLE WIGGLE WIGGLE WIGGLE.

I tend to focus more on the roots than the tips of the lashes as this gives me amazing volume and lash separation while never getting clumpy or "too much" imo.


Fragrances -Unlisted Brand -Berdoues Parfum Assam of India

on 12/12/2017 5:51:00 PM

Primary notes are citron from Menton, Mysore sandalwood, and tea.

The impression is one of a complex Eau de Cologne. You know how fleeting citrus can be? This lingers. The sandalwood and tea soften and round the citrus and the result is a an almost vintage smelling citrus with rich base notes and complexity. There seem to be aldehydes in this as it tickles the back of my throat like champagne or ginger ale. This sort of fragrance reminds me of the scents of small wooden boxes made of exotic woods.

This fragrance would work well on men or women,


Foundations -Lily Lolo -Mineral Foundation (all shades)

this is good stuff. I'm a chemistry nerd so I tend to check all the ingredients that makeup contains and of all the ones I've tried, this one has some of the best ones.

Although I'm not a fan of powdery foundations, I tend to scoop a bit of powder in my hand and mix it with 3 drops of oil - voilà! a liquid mineral foundation!

Alternatively, if you apply the powder on your skin (the coverage is buildable fyi), set it with any water mist. it makes is kinda melt to your skin and looks great.

To the people who break out cause of this - it could be due to either the titanium dioxide or the mica, both of these are minerals that can potentially irritate the skin (depending on your skin), titanium dioxide is commonly used as the SPF in makeup and sunscreens so bear that in mind if you react to this foundation when you try a different one.

All in all, would deffo buy a new pot, they're affordable, last a long time, have good ingredients and look good.

Mascara -Rimmel -Shake it Fresh Mascara

Dreadful. I only got this because some other sites rated it highly but I have no idea why they would. The brush is too large and fluffy so you either only hit the end of the lashes or get the product in your eye and on your lids. The super wet formula heavily coats the lashes and makes them spidery and clustered, even after I wiped the wand off with a tissue so there was barely any product left on it. The heavy 'shake' mechanism is dumb and gimmicky, the weight made the product feel more expensive but don't be fooled. I would be very mad if I had paid full price, but this wasn't worth it, not even at 50% off.

Sunscreen -Badger -SPF 30

How is it possible to look like an oil slick and yet my skin feels dry as a bone?

I had high hopes for a physical sunscreen without fatty alcohols or silicone. Badger seems to be my only option because it's just zinc oxide suspended in oil. Oh, the oil. I look like I rubbed a stick of butter over my face. The only way I could leave the house was after a copious dusting of e.l.f.'s matte HD powder.

And then I started to itch/feel tight, which I won't definitively say is due to this sunscreen, but it doesn't seem to help. In fact it seems to magnify the flakiness that's suddenly appeared.


Moisturizers -Kiehl's -Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm Moisturizer

Oh, Ultra Balm... Where have you been all my life? This is absolutely perfect for me. I have dry-ish skin, but most balms just sit in a oily mess on top of my skin and do zilch in terms of moisturizing. this... Oh, this is different. This actually soaks into my skin, moisturizes, and isn't greasy or oily. It's perfection in a jar. I'm eager to see how it performs when the weather turns warmer (months from now.. ) I suspect it will still be just as nice. I may have found my holy grail of moisturizers. If I have, when I need to repurchase Imma get the mondohugegimungo size so that I have it always. It has no scent that I can detect (and I hate fragrance in skincare) and truly, the jar doesn't bother me at all. I'm the only one using it, and I'm not unsanitary, so the jar is not a big deal to me. I use active agents in other products - all I want this to do is moisturize, and it does that brilliantly.

Contour -Sleek -Contour Kit

I bought this as a starter product- Like a lot of people, I bought it online cheap to play around with the idea of highlighting and contouring before buying anything significant as i'd never attempted it before. I bought it in 'light', surprisingly it wasn't too dark on me but it *is* too warm in the contour shade. It's a warm tone product for sure and i'm more a cool-neutral. The highlight is pretty decent though, I like the champagne sort of colour and still use it from time to time as it isn't too warm for my skin. Both last I'd say a good 6-7 hours without any fading which genuinely is good for the price. The pigmentation is also surprisingly good for the price, I have to be very gentle with the contour and when I first tried the highlighter for a night out I ended up looking like a very glam robot because I was so shimmery.
I'm now using the contour powder lightly as a bronzer, so it wasn't a waste but it won't be something staying in my collection. The packaging (like all the sleek powder products i've tried) is very sturdy, fits nicely in a handbag and has a really decent sized mirror. I've dropped this god knows how many times and neither the powder nor mirror shattered.


Cleansers -Garnier -Micellar Foaming Gel Cleanser

this legit RUINED MY SKIN, it containes coconut acid which clogged my pores and ruined the texture of my skin. I had great skin before I started using the micellar products, didn't struggle with sensitivity nor with acne. However after using this, I slowly started getting bumps all over my face, inflamed, non inflamed, blackheads and so on.

The issue with this is that it slowly builds up and clogged my pores so it was hard figuring out which product that had caused this. I went on antibiotics and was about to start a course of accutane when I figured out that this could be the issue.

The day I stopped using it my skin calmed down and stopped clogging the eff up. It's been a couple of weeks and it's slowly healing and improving.

the product itself btw, isn't amazing imo... it does remove makeup as it says, but the "clean feel" is overrated. just cause a product feels nice doesn't make it good. And regarding the price, the amount I've spent to clear my skin up again could've paid for liquid gold, thanks to this. Don't buy


Cleansers -CeraVe -Hydrating Cleanser Bar

I generally stay awake from bar cleansers as they dry my skin, despite my forehead, nose, and chin being very oily. My skin gets dehydrated, clogged, and can become irritated. Lately, my skin (face and body) has been so dry because of winter weather. I decided to give this a try while perusing the skin care ailse. On their website, the areas of concern for this soap are: cracked and chafed skin, dry skin, facial cleansing, gentle exfoliation, itchy skin, psoriasis prone skin.

I really like it. My face and body are not nearly as dry and my forehead is clearing up (only area that is acne prone on my face). I like the scent. Give it a try. It is not expensive and their website has coupon. I'm going to check out more of CeraVe's products.

Cleansers -Olay -Luminous Micellar Cleansing Water

Sensitive skin here! This burned a bit for me, but I don’t seem to have luck with micellar waters. I wish I could find one that doesn’t burn or sting!
