Liquid -Unlisted Brand - Sassy+Chic Foundation

Holy cats n dogs I can't believe I'd like a foundation from Dollar Tree! I was in there looking for crafty stuff and had to peruse the makeup aisle --there it was for $1. I got the lightest shade which is "light" tho I'm actually fair. I can't believe how nice it is! It blends easily, moisturizes and leaves a satin finish. I have to set with powder cuz I am way too expressive with my face and stuff wears off if I don't set it. I have to use corrector before concealing no matter what foundation so no surprise I did the same with this. Everything melts into this tho, there's no obvious concealer lines and it requires a lot less blending than most foundations. My face looks flawless today, nothing is oxidizing and with it set nothing is moving around. In all honesty this is better than most Tarte foundations and a lot of other high end ones. It is however more sheer than some. It's a bit more than a tinted moisturizer but less than a med-coverage foundation. IMO if u spot conceal with Dermacol u can use this and have a flawless face...I covered dark circles, acne spots, sun spots and redness with minimal conceal/correcting and just thus foundation. Knowing how great it is and is only $1, I don't expect to see it again cuz people buy them all, mark em up and sell them on eBay. If u can find it tho, I'd say grab a few while you can because it gives a flawless look on all but the most troubled skin types. And it's a buck!!

Lips -NYX - NYX Slip Tease Lip Oil

HOLY GRAIL BATMAN I love this lippie. I own this color in WOKE UP LIKE DIS and it makes me feel PRETTY. Like others have stated, this is basically Lip Lingerie (but better). It has more of a thin, oily, whipped texture and goes on very lightly. Its better to build up little by little to desired opacity with these to avoid patchiness. I bought Fire Dancer previously and returned it to Ulta because it was a little patchy, but I'm certain upon reading reviews it was my fault for the patchiness and I wish I hadn't returned it so quickly. I apply it with my finger tip little by little and blend it really well. This gives me huge full lips and causes a "blotted" effect which I LOVE. Probably going to treat myself to more colors this week tbh.

Lipstick -Urban Decay - Vice Liquid Lipstick - Amulet

I received a mini of this as a 100-pt perk. I am not really a liquid lipstick person but the shade appealed to me. It is a beautiful brick rose color, i am NC 30, and i feel very pretty in this. It really lasts (for hours) but feels light and comfortable. I put this on and forgot about it......meaning i did not have to re-apply. This would be perfect for a workday, for an event, or anytime you may not want to be bothered with touch-ups. I applied one coat and went on about my day. Smooth lips are a must with this so i scrubbed my lips with a wet washcloth. Then i apply a lipbalm and leave it on a few minutes, then wipe lips clean. The key here is having smooth, clean lips before application. That is a good idea with lipcolor in general, but is a must with liquid lipsticks. This is a beautiful shade that goes on true and has staying power while still wearing comfortably. I can see this shade looking beautiful on many skintones. I used my mini several times and i have already bought a full size. I will keep the full size at home and carry the mini in my purse.

Fragrances -Coach - Coach the Fragrance EDP

on 10/18/2017 2:42:00 PM

This fragrance has become one of my favorite scents. It is not loud or offensive in any way and I can wear it without feeling I am bothering people with allergies. I love the bottle and the lock on the top. It is a soft very ladylike scent that must have been designed for me. It last a long time on myself and if I get it on my clothes, it last forever. I hope they never discontinue this fragrance and I am getting a backup just in case. Love it!


Lash Treatments -Unlisted Brand - M2 BEAUTÉ- Eyelash Activating Serum

on 10/18/2017 1:49:00 PM

foto

I'm surprised this product wasn't listed here yet because it's so incredibly effective. It's extremely expensive lash growth serum, however worth every single penny. I can't tell if there's a cheaper alternative to it on the market as I haven't used different lash growth products but I was amazed with the results of this one.
It has a pointy liguid eyeliner type applicator that you simply brush over your lashline once a day, in the evening on clean lashes. It dries quickly, however stings if it gets into the eye and usually it always does when you blink. So I am not sure if it would work for sensitive eyes. One tube lasted me about 4 months with daily applications and I started noticing first results in about a month of using it. By the end of the second month I started receiving questions whether I'm wearing false lashes so I guess it says it all. My lashes look thicker,healthier and darker too. I read some reviews that you have to keep using it to maintain the results but I will try to give it a break for a month or so just to see if my lash condition changes for worse. The brand also has a brow growth serum which I also tried but didn't get as pleasing results as with lash serum, maybe didn't use it long enough.
Overall, this product exceeded my expectations, because at first I was a little sceptical looking at other people's photos of incredible results.
I recommended it to many friends and they all were very impressed. I only wish it was more affordable.

Moisturizers -Lubriderm - Daily Moisture Lotion - Fragrance Free

on 10/18/2017 1:47:00 PM

This moisturizer is amazing for the face.

BUT.....sadly it starts to break me out in little red bumps if I use for more than a week. If this did not happen, it would be my HG moisturizer.

Moisturizes very well, skin is glowing but never oily, does not irritate skin (except for breakouts..but other than that it does not)

if you are not breakout prone, i would try this. the price is amazing too!! very cheap for the amount you get!

Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick

Love this! I have this in "Give Me Mocha" and it looks nice on my complexion. Very subtle but the color pops in a way. It lasts long even after drinking coffee. I would give this 5 lippies but I can't because it is drying on MY lips. However I'm going to figure out a way to moisturize my lips before applying this. So in love with the color and how it's long lasting, can't wait to try a few other shades.

Cleansers -Equate - Night-Time Soothing Makeup Remover Towelettes (compare to Neutrogena Night Calming Towelettes)

foto

I can't even count how many times I've bought these! I will always buy these over the Neutrogena ones. It's much cheaper and they perform just as well. They take off my makeup with ease and work great for my skin. I love the night-time soothing factor as well. My only complaint would be that when you first open a fresh package, the first 5-6 wipes are not saturated enough to remove makeup well. Once you start to move through the package, they get more saturated as you go. Other than that, it's a really good product!

Toners -Unlisted Brand - Humphreys lilac witch hazel skin softening facial toner

on 10/18/2017 1:00:00 PM

foto

To be honest, I wasn't planning on buying this. I just needed $5.00 to add to my cart so that I got free shipping (shipping would've cost me another $10). Amazing toner for such an affordable price. I paid CA$6.26 on iHerb.com! Okay but enough with the pricing. I use this as a essence because it's alcohol free and contains hyaluronic acid. In my skincare regiment, I wash my face with Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser, followed by Thayer's Alcohol Free Witch Hazel in Lavender (to get rid of any residue) on a cotton pad. Then I use Cosrx AHA 7 whitehead power liquid on a cotton pad. Afterwards I spray Humphrey's Skin Softening Facial Toner (I changed the cap to an jatomizer) and press the product into my skin. While my face is still damp, I apply my Cerave SA Renewing Lotion then spray on some rosewater. I noticed a huge different without Humphrey's Facial Toner; it's like it preps and plumps my skin for proper moisture. My skin has been noticeably softer and brighter that even my coworkers started complimenting me. It smells of light lilac, but not overpowering. I love love love this product and will absolutely keep it in my skincare regiment!

Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Kyse Confit de Rose

foto

Today my glorious, gorgeous scent of the day is Kyse Confit de Rose....
A lovely gourmand rose that hits all the right notes--it's comforting yet alluring. It opens with a buttery cookie note that makes my mouth water, then a blast of tart berries, creamy whipped cream, a hint of rich chocolate and so much sweet rose. I really think anyone could wear this, if you're a fan of gourmands. The rose is not green, bitter, nor soapy---just a sweet uncomplicated warm rose. ♥ Heavenly.
I don't get the votes that compare it to Rose Jam, as it's far more gourmand and less soapy than Rose Jam can be (don't get me wrong, I love them both---but they are 2 different animals).
So affordable, and worth picking up!


Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Falsies

on 10/18/2017 12:42:00 PM

I was on vacation and in desperate need of mascara. Only 1 shop in town and no acess to reviews, so I just took a chance and grabbed this. Ugh, it's so clumpy. When I got back home I even tried it under mascara primer and it still clumped. It makes my eyelashes look bumpy and spikey, really not a good look. I also felt the color was not a saturated lush black which I would prefer. Can a mascara be dingy? I liked the shape of the brush and that's about it. Oh, I forgot to mention, there is no way to apply another coat. It becomes very dry and set quickly, it's discouraging.

Lovely light moisturiser. It's like a milky lotion, it has a subtle non offensive smell. My skin feels smooth and plump, not greasy at all.
The packaging is hard plastic and comes with a pump, 140ml will last a long time.

I have rosacea and my skin is normal to combination.

I have rosacea/sensitive skin and this broke me out after one application (used it once a day for a week).
I liked the texture and feel of the gel, but sadly I had to give it away.

Palettes -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills - Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette

foto

I truly enjoy this palette. Despite the crazy fallout, this palette is crazy pigmented and very easy to blend, hence the hype. I am particularly very picky when it comes to colour selection, and this palette offers you an actual variety of warm-pink-ish colour range, which is the current trend and right up my alley. My favourite shades are Tempera for highlight, Burnt Orange and Raw Sienna for transition colour, Red Ochre and Love letter on the lid and Cyprus Umber for outer corner (fancy names, right).

However, one lippie for the packaging because it is not the most wise packaging. Like, if I create an eyeshadow palette with crazy pigmentation and fallout, suede would not be my first choice? Or my choice at all?

I do really appreciate the brush. The packing brush is dense and soft, while the blending brush isn't as soft, it is still very usable.

Gels/Soaps -Suave - Naturals Body Wash in Tropical Coconut

on 10/18/2017 12:13:00 PM

Smells very coconuty. Lathers fine and rinses easily. It does dry out my skin though. So I have to lotion after using. Very affordable.
