Eyeliner -Kiko Cosmetics -Definition waterproof eyeliner

I’ve searched high and low for a good liquid eyeliner that won’t run, smear, and most importantly transfer on my hooded lids. I have oily eyelids and many eyeliners typically transfer. But this one does not! And it’s really water proof. I can go to the beach, cry, and occasionally shower with it on when I’m too tired to take my makeup off first and it will not move! The eyeliner is really pigmented. The applicator can be a little tricky to work with if you’re not use to this brush type, but I’ve used this type of applicator for years and love it. My holy grail use to be the Milani Infinite Liquid Eyeliner but the product tends to dry and clump up waaay faster than this one does. This eyeliner will get thick and clump over time, but not as fast as the Milani one. I will continue to repurchase this every time if possible. Definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a good, pigmented eyeliner that will stay put throughout the day.


Cleansers -Drunk Elephant -Beste Jelly Cleanser

I was very excited to try Drunk Elephant's new Beste Cantaloupe Jelly Cleanser. I've been using this since it first came out a few months ago and I must say that this is one of the first Drunk Elephant products that I'm not 100% in love with. I've found it doesn't do the best job removing makeup- even non-waterproof makeup. If you don't wear a lot of makeup you will probably have better luck with this. I do like that it is gentle on my dry skin and doesn't leave it feeling overly dry or stripped. I think this cleanser would be best used in the morning just to slightly cleanse skin before makeup application or on days that I don't wear a lot of makeup.

Lip Gloss -NYX -Professional Makeup Butter Gloss

I bought the butter gloss in the colour black berry pie ( black ). I overall like it very much, but because it's a very dark colour it needs 2 or 3 coats otherwise it will looks gray.


Eye Shadow -Make Up For Ever -Star Lit Glitter Palette

When Make Up For Ever recently released the Star Lit Glitter Shadow Palette I had to purchase this. It feature six glitters some of which are duo chromatic and some which are more opaque glitter shadows. I was a little disappointed when the palette arrived because two of the glitters shifted (or shrank?) during shipping and are falling out of the pan so I'll have to exchange this. Some of the glitters are just that: glitters. Some of these glitters are encased in a more opaque shadow. These are all very beautiful and I love the duo chrome and more opaque colors. These wear well, last all day with a primer, have little to no fall out, and are very buildable as well. I have a love-hate relationship with Make Up For Ever eye shadows, the singles usually don't work well for me but their eye shadow palettes are usually much better for me. If you are looking for some nice glitter shadows and don't mind the price tag then the Star Lit Glitter Palette is worth checking out. My more detailed review and swatches can be seen here:

Eye Shadow -NARS -Danger Control Eye Shadow Palette

on 2/18/2018 6:06:00 AM

NARS Danger Control Eye Shadow Palette had me very exited for some beautiful duo chomatic and holohraphic colors.  Unfortunately this isn't really what the NARS Danger Control palette is mostly made up of.  The colors are lacking enough pigment to be truly holographic or duochrome.  The colors in this palette are six subdued colors that will suit someone looking for the no makeup-makeup look or someone looking for a few light colors. I was hoping for some transformative or holo colors, but none of these colors are either. The shadows apply well and last all day but... for the price, $49, six pans is just crazy~ My more detailed review and swatches can be seen here:

Masks -GLAMGLOW -Supermud Clearing Treatment Masque

on 2/18/2018 5:47:00 AM

Very expensive in the UK, I think it was £44 a jar which is 50ml! That makes it the most highest priced little item in my beauty cabinet. That being said, I love what this mask does. I have oily skin that is prone to regular monthly breakouts and this really seems to help dry my skin a little and unclog my pores. At first I used a thick layer of the mask, until I learned that you only need a very thin layer that almost just about covers your skin. A 50ml jar will last about 30 uses for me.


Concealers -Maybelline -Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles [DISCONTINUED]

I bought this because one of the beauty gurus from YT — Tati — is raving about it all the time. My initial thought is that it is an average product, if not below average because the shade light turns orange on me. The sponge has no purpose. A far superior concealer to this is Liquid Camouflage from Catrice which I will be using until I die, remembering myself to never ever trust beauty gurus again.


Mascara -By Terry -Mascara Terrybly

I love 💖 this mascara. It makes my lashes look so beatiful. It is lengthening, volumizing, separating and it holds the curl. The price is the only negative I can think off. But this is probably because of the lash caring elements added to it. Sisley mascara’s are also expensive, but give less results (for me).

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

This is amazing if you want to make your makeup stay and look good all day (and all night). Kind of expensive, but I think it is worth it because I have tried lots of setting sprays from the drugstore, and none of them can compare to this one!

Lotions/ Creams -No Brand (DIY or homemade) -Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (All brands)

I recently switched to Argan oil and Jojoba oil. Because Coconut oil doesn't work for me, personally. Hair: Looks greasy, even if I use a tiny bit. Plus the effect doesn't last long, my hair feels dry and greasy in the end. It's hard to wash it off, even when I use my shampoo or conditioner twice. It doesn't make a good difference with my hair. Face: Might be ok for fine lines under my eyes but otherwise, it clogs my pores and I get acne/pimples. It feels like a greasy film which can't penetrate my skin. I tried it with and without water but it doesn't make a difference. Result is always the same. It's only good for removing makeup but then I have to use a cleaner or micellar water to remove the oily residue. Body: Same with face (except I don't get pimples). I like to apply it before I shave so my skin won't get irritated. Food: Eating pure coconut oil is... not my thing, thanks. A colleague at work told me it helps her and she noticed it makes her feel better. I tried to eat it before breakfast for five days (table spoon full) but I had to stop because I did not like it. So, as a shave oil and for its good benefits for eating it gets the 2 lips. But otherwise, it's not useful for me. I found that Argan oil and Jojoba oil are the best oils for me. And thank God I switched to these. Or else I would still say that oils are just a useless beauty trend.
