Cleansers -Juice Beauty -Blemish Clearing Cleanser

on 7/19/2018 9:05:00 AM


I started back on birth control a few months ago and was dealing with some major hormonal breakouts. It was so bad that I was ashamed to be seen with no makeup on. It seemed so unfair that I take great care of my skin and have worked years to get rid of hyperpigmentation from old acne. My roommate knew I'd been really feeling low about it and for my birthday she got me a trial kit of the Juice Beauty blemish clearing line and I've been blown away!!!! The smell is very unique, in that it's not fragranced or chemical-filled so it just smells very natural, which I like since they boast being an organic brand. My skin feels so balanced, never stripped, but never overly oily either. My pores have never looked this clear in my life and I've even noticed that nearly all of my PIH has vanished. I ended up ordering the full-size and I rarely do that with samples, especially with this being a bit pricey for my budget but it is absolutely worth it. This have saved my skin. I can see this being great for any skin type that's prone to breakouts, even hormonal ones!!!!

Highlighters -Pat McGrath Labs -Skin Fetish Highlighter + Balm Duo

on 7/19/2018 9:00:00 AM

I have heard great things about PMG highlighters; I believe this product has been around a few years back as a limited edition release, so I was very happy to finally play with an updated version this summer.

I got the shade Bronze, which would look great on beauties with a deeper skin tone. Gold is great for medium complexion, while Nude would be an ideal shade for might light-neutral skin tone. Too bad it is sold out right now, otherwise I would buy it in a heartbeat. The star product here is the balm - it is a clear, non-sticky yet very glossy formula that can be used mixed with highlighters or on its own (eyes, face, lips). It smells like a MAC lipstick and is a dreamy mixing medium. You can be as creative with it as you want! Highlighter is perfect as it is quite wearable and perfect for an subtle everyday glow.

Very compact, very luxe! I have unedited swatches and more application tips in a separate review here, for those of you interested ( All in all, great launch from the brand!

Blush -MAC -Mineralize Blush - Love Joy

on 7/19/2018 8:28:00 AM


I cant miss this product from my daily make up routine. I would rather skip foundation than this blush. It make me look alive and glowing!
I have medium/ tanned skin tone and this color is perfect fit!
I have applyed it at 8 a.m. before work, when I came back at 17:30 it was still there.. :O say whaat?! And that on a warm and humid day, 30 with no Air-co. This is the first blush that does that. Tiny bit of product goes a long way. It is very pigmented and lasting.

Made my skin dry, irritated, itchy and red. I rarely experience any sort of skin breakout but this product left red itchy bumps all over my cheeks.

Fragrances -Chloe -Roses de Chloe

on 7/19/2018 7:10:00 AM


I'm a rose lover, and enjoy talking a stroll every year in our local heritage rose garden at the height of the season each year. Real roses on a bush can vary depending on the type. Some have rich honeyed tones, some are creamy, others have hints of citrus. And then there is the damask rose, the simple traditional pink pot pourri rose. This is Roses de Chloe. Feminine pink rose, fresh and light with the lightest whisper of musk. But it feels a little old to me. Like an old fashioned rose soap found in your great grandmothers drawer. Or pot pot pourri. Or like burying your nose in a bouquet of roses picked a few days ago. Its real roses, but not quite fresh off the bush. Still, a lovely feminine fragrance. One lippie off for the poor lasting power. Its almost like a body spray, lasting around one hour on me in a mild winter.

Top Notes - Bergamot
Heart Notes - Damask rose, Magnolia
Base Notes - White musk, Amber

Received this in mini from Sephora. As a caramel girl was surprised to see that this shows up on my skin. Adds the perfect natural flush too the cheeks. Has definitely become a favourite for me.

Fragrances -Unlisted Brand -Tory Burch

on 7/19/2018 6:22:00 AM


I'm really impressed with this fragrance as well as quite a few other Tory Burch scents. It is a very well developed scent that has a lot of notes that blend very nicely with each other. Its a full blast of Orange goodness upon first spray. The box is bright orange, the perfume is orange so that sets the stage for what this perfume is going to smell like. ORANGE. The thing that really piqued my interest in this perfume was the carrot seed note. I have never heard of a note like that being in a perfume before. I can't say that I smell carrots but the fragrance does have a bit of earthiness to it. May be a combination of the vetiver, cedar and the carrot seeds. Its quite a heavy scent in my opinion and fills a room up. Very long lasting too. To me it leans kind of unisex I guess because of the bottom notes and that earthy vibe I get. Very well done perfume.

Lipstick -Makeup Revolution -Soph Nude Lipstick - Fudge

I really love this. It's the kind of shade that I'm always looking for, but never really seem to find the right one - on me it's a warm brown, but not straight brown. It looks like MLBB on my fair yellow-toned skin, just slightly nude-r and darker.
The finish is great, it's matte but with just a hint of satin, so it looks like my own lips without product on. And it's not exactly moisturizing, but not dry at all either. And the price.. I feel like I hit the jackpot on this one.

Mascara -NYX Professional Makeup -Worth the Hype Volumizing

on 7/19/2018 4:27:00 AM


This is a true 5 star mascara - everything about it is great : it gives volume, length, separation, does not clump, stays in place, price is very very reasonable (especially when compared to many high end mascaras that perform way worse than this beauty).

Of course, it depends on what you want from a mascara. Those of you looking for a dramatic false lash look, should not be buying this. If you are looking for a rather natural look ('my lashes but better' look) then you will be more than happy with it.

Powder -Pixi -Colour Correcting Powder Foundation

on 7/19/2018 3:41:00 AM


Let me start by saying this is one of very few products I have purchased at least four times and I shall continue.

This powder foundation provides good coverage for some redness on my cheeks and even some slight pigmentation - I'm not suggesting this is full coverage, but it is certainly a lot more than a setting/translucent powder.
Despite this feature, it is undetectable on my skin, I'm a light NC20 and shade no. 2 is perfect.
Even better, although my skin tends to be dry, it does not make it look dry.
Packaging is not particularly attractive but it has a good, large mirror and it's neat, not bulky at all.
I highly recommend it.

Toners -Mario Badescu -Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater


Horrible. Makes me break out every time I use it, idk why.. I have even tried keeping it further from my face. It helps keep my makeup fresh but I break out all over my face the next day. Not worth the money.

Masks -L'Oreal -Pure Clay Mask - Exfoliate and Refine Pores

on 7/19/2018 3:08:00 AM


My partner and I tried it a few times. Did nothing for our skin, no brightening, no pore refining. Just made our skin look drier and more tired. Strong perfume smell which is terrible for the skin. When we washed it off it stained my skin orange for a day.

Masks -L'Oreal -Detox & Brighten Mask Pure Clay Mask

on 7/19/2018 3:05:00 AM


Made my skin look super bright red and sore. I'm surprised no-one has mentioned this is over loaded with strong men's cologne type fragrance which ages the skin. Did nothing to help with clogged pores or blackheads.

Foundations -L'Oreal -Infallible Pro-Glow 24HR Foundation

on 7/19/2018 2:40:00 AM


This foundation destroyed my complexion. I absolutely do not recommend this. I’ve only used it a handful of times, and my face which was once in good shape is now extremely bumpy all over, pimples and white heads everywhere. This foundation does look amazing in my opinion, it is my favorite drug store foundation appearance wise, it is glowy but not too much, the shade 203 matched my middle eastern olive skin perfectly, and was hydrating to my skin without settling in fine lines or oxidizing, I do feel like this foundation stays put for a very long time. But the break outs... more severe than any other foundation I’ve ever used before. And ruined my skin completely in such a short time. I’m really disappointed, because I loved how this looked.
