Loose Powders -E.L.F. - Studio High Definition Powder

on 10/17/2017 6:55:00 PM

Do not bother. I decided to try it because I was using NYX but am always looking for something a little softer + more blotting because I'm oily + wear my makeup for stage which is sweaty. This was basically like putting gritty chalk on my face. It stuck to certain areas, left me white + patchy + didn't do its job. I had no idea powder could be this bad.


Hair Treatments -Aphogee - Keratin and Green Tea Restructurizer

This product is GREAT!!!! So happy I found it. I was using It's A Ten Keratin Leave-In Spray. It was ok but the price was awful for the little bit that you got. This stuff works way better and is a quarter of the price. After a few uses I really started seeing results. My hair is growing faster, is stronger and the damage is getting better. I have my hair chemically straightened and I color every 4 to 5 weeks so it is damaged. With this spray my hair is getting better and better. I've tried other Aphogee products and I love them all. Great quality products and affordable prices!

Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Heimish All Clean Balm

I enjoy using this product very much. I don't love the scent, that's the only "con", but overall it does a good job and it's very well formulated. The packaging is correct, once you open the main lid there's a smaller one with a little "spoon" that you are supposed to use to take the product out of the package without getting any bacteria on it. Because it comes in a solid form, this is very convenient.
Once you apply it onto your skin it gently melts makeup and I feel really clean afterwards. It's oily, but more of a dry oil than anything else. I always use a foam cleanser afterwards anyway. Also, a big pro is how little amount of product I need. I feel like I'm going to have this around forever and for the price that's pretty awesome.

Lipstick -Dose Of Colors - Butterscotch

on 10/17/2017 5:51:00 PM

This lipstick had potential. It's a great color, it reminds me of MAC Creme d'Nude. However it did apply a bit on evenly and may have worked better if it was a thicker formula like MAC. The packaging is also a bit inconvenient. The lipstick does not roll down inside the tube. I will stick with MAC. I will not repurchase.


Lipstick -Dose Of Colors - Poise

I purchased this based off of online swatches. When it came, it is the most hideous dark reddish orange on me. I will not repurchase.


Sunscreen -Biore - UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen SPF50+ PA+++

on 10/17/2017 5:37:00 PM

I've tried every available sunscreen (both chemical and physical) on this planet and gave up on the hope of ever finding any that doesn't break me out or/and dry out my skin or/and turn me into a greaseball. I was talked into trying this one by a friend who is a fan of Asian skin products, and got me sucked into loving the stuff as well.

This one is THE sunscreen! Applies like a dream, keeps my dry parts moisturized, oily parts matte. Slightly blurs out imperfections. My BB cream and foundations look gorgeous with this sunscreen underneath. The only con I can think of the initial strong smell of alcohol, but it goes away quickly.

DO NOT buy it
the customer service is horrible, products are dangerous for your eyes, they are not opticians, they are random people
I have not yet received my order despite paying it 8 days ago
I emailed them several times, the only response I got was this I quote '' we will contact Royal Mail and ask them to investigate and locate the person who signed it, if that person is proved not living at your address we cannot do anything''
I just disputed the amount at my bank and got my money bank
just stay away from this idiotic company

The foundation sinked into my skin making it look like I had nothing covering my face; Not something I’d encourage people to buy


Moisturizers -Garnier - Moisture Rescue Actively Hydrating Daily Lotion SPF 15

on 10/17/2017 5:27:00 PM

foto

This is great for combo/oily skin, because it absorbs really nicely while still adding a bit of moisture for hydration. No greasy feel or shiny finish like with a lot of SPF containing lotions. The locking pump bottle is convenient to use and travel with. I can't wear a higher than SPF15 or I break out, so this suits my needs without causing any breakouts. This has fragrance, which to me smells great, but there is also a fragrance free version for those sensitive to scented products. I paid $10.99, which is reasonable IMO. Will repurchase!


Blush -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Blush

I have the shade "Vibrant 20", which is a medium warm pink. This blush is silky smooth and has good color payoff. The color lasts all day, and the formula does not break me out. I think this was $8.99, which is a bit high considering the packaging isn't that great (no brush), but I like the shade and formula, so I'd repurchase!

Liquid -Becca - Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème

I love this foundation so much it's very full coverage and makes you look flawless! A little goes a long way so you don't need very much! I made the mistake of using to much but it was still very buildable doesn't look cakey or anything! I noticed this kept me looking quite matte during the day even though I believe it doesn't have any mattifying claims. A great foundation if you want that super full coverage flawless canvas!
For reference it's similar to the urban decay all nighter foundation in terms of coverage and finish but this is slightly more thick but super blendable!

Highlighters -Jeffree Star - Skin Frost

on 10/17/2017 5:04:00 PM

I got this in Ice Cold.

My HG highlighter of life!! For so many reasons-

1). It Shows Up effectively and is light enough for my light skin

2). Easy to brush on in strategic areas as it's a Highly Pigmented Powder so it stays put and doesn't shmear around and disappear.

3). Large pink sturdy case with good mirror and huge amount of product.

So many highlighters are too dark or barely there. I am light and want a major pop of highlight in small areas like cheekbones, bridge of nose, Cupid's bow and chin etc.

Lipstick -ColourPop - Lippie Stix (all colours)

SHADE #Pillowtalk & #Parker

Oh my god. Hands down, if you're contemplating on whether or not to purchase this.. As long as the shade is perfect for you, just BUY it. It's formula is creamy but hard (not in a bad way, it helps distribute product easily unlike some other lippies that melt away and are impossible to spread out) and semi-pigmented so you can choose to have a little on your lips or apply a couple more layers for a gorgeous pigmented look. BUT this does not mean that the lippie stix is not pigmented, it's freaking beautiful but I love how it's not a burst of "in-your-face" colours. Because of it's thin shape, it's easy to line and fill the lips. Would seriously recommend!

**PROS**
Perfect and easy formula to work with, great for pros and makeup beginners.
Pigmentation is soo beautiful
Semi-matte finish
Budget friendly, it's so cheap!

**CONS**
None!

Foundations -Revlon - PhotoReady Liquid Foundation

I had to give this 5 lippies, despite the sparkles...which are visible/noticeable. Sometimes the silver shimmer in this makes me feel beautiful, like some sorta magical/ethereal being, and other times I think this foundation would be perfection without them, so it really is a personal preference. I love the finish and feel, because this seems to meld with my skin, and looks so smooth and non-cakey, and really masks my larger pores. Despite the shimmers, it is otherwise matte in feel, and does not make me greasy like other foundations do. For reference, I have combo/oily skin. I love that this has SPF20, because I like to layer up on my sun protection. The pump bottle is really convenient, and the lightest shade "Ivory 001" matches my pale, neutral skintone perfectly. I think it's important to mention what is worn under/over foundations, when reviewing. Having said that, I wear Garnier's Moisture Rescue SPF15 under this, and Maybelline's Better Skin powder to set. The price is kinda up there ($13.99), but I would still repurchase.
