Concealers -Tarte -Shape Tape Contour Concealer

I bought this concealer due to the high amount of hype it received online. Living in England, it was harder to obtain but I was looking for something high coverage and this seemed to be it. At first, I loved it. I am rather pale and drugstore concealers tend to be darker and orange in colour - this concealer was a good match. The coverage is great - I admit, it seems to be one of the highest coverage concealers on the market as of tight now. However it is not perfect, though it does cover I think it's not radiant enough for under the eyes, it can be quite dry looking. For summer, I prefer something more radiant and this is rather matte in texture. The price is one of of the negatives, although it is Tarte, for a concealer I don't think it should be the price of a foundation, on the other hand this product has lasted me quite a while.

I no longer use this concealer. Makeup Revolution have brought out a series of Conceal and define concealers and honestly, I find myself reaching for these more than the Tarte. They are cheaper and perfect dupes. I find that the Tarte shape tape still offers a tad bit more coverage but nothing that would make me repurchase the concealer over the Makeup Revolution ones.

For a night out, I may use this but for day to day use, I opt for others. If the price range was lower I'd continue to use it, however there are now dupes that are much cheaper and greater value for money. If you're in the market for a new concealer and have cash to splurge you won't be disappointed, but if you want to save money and get something similar, opt for the Makeup Revolution concealer. It's literally like 5 or less pounds.

Liquid -NARS -Sheer Glow Foundation

Sheer? Glow? B***h where? This foundation is a medium to full coverage matte foundation and don't let nobody tell you otherwise!
The bottle doesnt come with a pump and therefore you waste a crap ton of product.
As for how it looks on the face. Meh, it looks fine. Honestly the foundation is so meh that i have nothing really to say. If it was £10 i might say go for it but for £35 (and no pump) id say dont bother. There are hundreds of other foundations at that price point that actually make your skin look amazing. I.e chanel vitalumire aqua, estee lauder nude water fresh, ysl all hours. Conclusion: dont waste your money on a meh foundation.

Concealers -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Full Coverage Concealer Jar

very high coverage if any of the tones work for you. covers imperfections well. useful for sharpening brow makeup if you use concealer in your brow routine. for the price, i can see why some people enjoy this concealer.

on me it translates as a dry formula; it pulled at the skin around areas applied. even the palest shade offering is rather dark which made the concealer shockingly noticeable. starts to break apart on the skin after a couple of hours. looks terrible in natural lighting.

This stuff stings and burns like a b**$% oh my god! It absolutly stinks of tea tree! Its full of added perfume! Aweful stuff. Id recommed Origins out of trouble or rose clay over this one anyday.
The only positive I can think of are the little holes where your pores are. Those are cool.

Toners -Simple -Soothing Skin Toner

on 4/25/2018 7:14:00 PM

This is a very basic toner, it feels and smells like putting cucumber/aloe water on your face. So imagine my suprise when i found out it was this that was causing my skin to break out in a facewide irriatation rash. I can only guess that is because of the crap load of parabens in the ingredients. If you are sensitive to parabens please beware!

Toners -Nuxe -Gentle Toning Lotion with Rose Petals (Lotion Tonique Douce)

I have very dry and sensitive skin. I liked this product however it contains fragrance which is one of my biggest no nos in skincare. However pretending that that wasnt there this is just a basic rose toner. It really did soften my skin and helped my mousturizer sink in better. However the fragrance did cause some mild irritation for my sensitive skin so i will not repurchase as there are a million better fragrance free toners out there.


Cleansers -La Roche-Posay -Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser

My skin type is dry and extremely sensitive beyond belief. I am allergic to everything and my skin reacts very badly to my allergies.
This cleanser however does not irritate my skin at all which is quite spectacular.
If you do have it or want to have it i recommend putting a generous amount on to dry skin and really rubbing it in with your hands then get a damp (not wet) wash cloth and wiping it away gently. This might sound silly, like it wouldnt make a difference but putting it onto wet skin is pointless, it just washes away. Putting it onto dry skin and merely wiping away the excess really helps soften your skin and prep it for the rest of your skincare. This cleanser is also really good at removing makeup, almost as good as an oil or balm but far less greasy feeling. Ill definatly buy again.


Treatments (Face) -Dermalogica -Skin Hydrating Booster

on 4/25/2018 6:55:00 PM

My skin type: extremely dry and as sensitive as skin could ever be. I get very bad eczema around my mouth and eyes as well.
When i first used this my skin was going through one of my worst sensitivity phases were i had terrible itchy irritation bumps on my cheeks frim allergies and eczema on my eyelids. I had tried so many moisturizers but nothing worked whatsoever. I saw that i had a sample of this product so i thought id go ahead and give it a go because my skin was so dry. I put it on and it sunk into my skin very quickly so i sprayed my face with a water mist to ‘feed the hylaronic acid’ i then put on my usual moisturizer. I swear the next day my skin irriatation was totally gone, my skin was hydrated like never before. And bizarrly, the fine lines across my forehead were totally plumped up. Any dehydration lines such as the ones on my nose had been plumped. Even the eczema on my lids had diminished significantly. I was actually shocked that this light watery hydrater had done what no thick emollient had ever been able to do. I immediatly bought the full size and some other dermalogica items because i was just so impressed by the first product id ever tried. Ive been using it for another week now and the eczema on my eyelids is gone! Phenominal product!


Toners -Biologique Recherche -Lotion Biologique Recherche P50W Treatment

on 4/25/2018 6:43:00 PM

Okay, it has only been 2 days of using this product twice a day and holy crap, this stuff is amazing.
I have extrmely dry and sensitive skin and it is prone to get very flaky. I had previously used products like FAB radience pads and pixie glow tonic to exfoliate but this caused my skin to breaknout in irritation bumps (that looked like acne but were just patches of irriatation). However this stuff is totally different than any exfoliant ive ever used. I apply just a very small amout (like 5 drops) to a cotton round (you think it wont cover your face but it will i swear) . For me i get a warm feeling all over my face and a slight tingle in spots i tend to be more sensitive like my temples and cheekbones, my face also turns red, however i would not call this irritating by any means, these are just normal reactions to an acid. This stuff has made my skin so smooth and glowy. Honestly its a literal miracle.
Of course i will update my reveiw if anything changes i.e breakouts or dryness etc.


Polishes -OPI -Take a Right on Bourbon

Take A Right On Bourbon is from OPI New Orleans Collection. This is a spring/summer collection in 2016. This is an interesting color. I thought at the beginning it is silver. However, the moment I put my nails closer to my cosmetic silver/chrome jar cap, I find it doesn't look silver. It leans more champagne as it has a little bit of gold in it. It also has some very fine micro-golden glitter which makes this color interesting. It has a pearly/frosty metallic finish.
The application for this polish is not easy. I will have to say it is similar to any of the pearly/frosty nail lacquer, it is hard not to see any brush stroke. However, I manage to achieve a "near" brush streak free finish by applying less polish on each stroke. The angle and the strength of applying is also important. I angle my brush so it does not pull all the stroke on my nails. I also try to apply three strokes. One in the middle and two on each side. Each stroke I dip a bit of nail lacquer, not too much though. Otherwise it will make it look very very streaky.
Due to its frosty/pearly finish, it does wash out my skin tone. I find this color is interesting. I think it looks better when I have longer nails than short one. Depends on the occasion, I find this color suits more evening with black or white dress. It leans towards more of a sophisticated look than a casual one. I would not say this color is a disappointment because it does grow on me. I guess when applying it, the technique is really important. I have learnt not to put too much nail lacquer on each stroke and it does make a difference. I think the more lacquer I have on each stroke, it will create more uneveness and hard to make it opaque. When I apply it carefully and with less lacquer, I can build it up easily and can achieve a "near" streak free finish. If you like pearly color, you may like it. However, I do find that it does wash out your skin tone. When I choose to buy this again or not, it totally depends on whether I will wear it again, if I choose to wear this color again, I will definitely buy it.
