Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Micro Brow Pencil

5.0

Feb/19/2016

Hands down the best brow pencil I've ever used. Definitely the same as Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Whiz but less than half the price (ABH ~19-21€ | NYX 8.99€). I have the shade Ash Brown and unlike some reviewers, I haven't had the problem of it being too red. The colour is a cool but natural tone and matches my fair skin and dirty blonde hair perfectly. The tip of the pencil makes a …Read more

Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Healthy Hoof Cream Intensive Protein Treatment

Apr/20/2014

I normally use Hard As Hoof but I bought this because of the reviews online. It does exactly the same thing as HAH except the scent is different (I prefer HAH but honestly it means nothing for the wonderful effects both products bring). This products moisturizes your nails and cuticles very well which helps them be strong and grow long. This product can be found for only a few $ at Sally Beauty …Read more

Treatments - Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

5.0

May/15/2013

I have a terrible habit of picking at the skin surrounding my nails and the cuticles as well. I get my fingers to a point where they bleed, scab, and look absolutely horrible. The skin becomes very hard, flaky, and cracked. I saw this product in a YouTube video and thought I'd try it out. For me it works wonders. I apply it a couple of times a day and within a week my fingers look like …Read more

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Beeswax Lip Balm

2.0

May/15/2013

Although I do like some Burt's Bees products (like the cuticle butter) I can't say that I'm a huge fan of this one. The scent was nice and the packaging is pretty standard but I felt the formula was too waxy and that it sat on my lips rather than penetrated them.

Skincare - Face - Pro Activ - 3-Step System

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/15/2013

This made me break-out so much more than I had before using the system. I'm not sure I believe the "it has to get worse before it gets better" thing but I used this for a very long time and it didn't do much but make my face really itchy and irritated. I don't have severe acne but I was hoping to find something that would prevent the blemishes I get around my period …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Mascara - Original

May/15/2013

This is one of my favourite drugstore mascaras. I have naturally long and thick lashes already so I love how it amplifies them...and the jet black colour is perfect! Also, my lashes are quite dark already (aside from slightly blonde tips) so I feel that it applies nicely - not sure how it would work for a softer, lighter lash though - it may be too heavy and sticky and clump the lashes if …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm Blush

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/15/2013

This blush is very popular in the beauty community but I definitely think that it doesn't live up to the hype. The colour is very pretty but it has tiny specs of reflective particles which I personally don't like. Also, Nars products are severely over-priced as is and of course this blush is no exception. What I did find though is that it lasted a really long time. Ultimately, it's …Read more

Powder - bareMinerals - Original Foundation

I was really disappointed with this foundation. First of all, to get the correct coverage on blemishes I needed a lot of product which ended up looking cakey. Also, I had to use my own brushes because the ones that came with the set were very rough and irritated my face. This also made me break-out. Didn't work for me unfortunately.

Liquid - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Stay-In-Place Liquid Makeup

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/15/2013

I discovered this foundation about two years ago and completely fell in love with it. Over the last twelve years that I’ve been wearing make-up, I have tried an insane amount of different foundations. I have combination skin and in my teen years I struggled with acne. I still get break-outs but not to the same degree as before. This foundation (for me) beats all the rest because it is …Read more

Pressed Powders - CLINIQUE - Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/15/2013

Because I have combination skin I tend to get oily around my t-zone, I need to use make-up that is hypoallergenic and that won’t clog my pores but that will keep me matte and fresh at the same time. I’ve been using this Clinique powder for as long as I can remember and I love it because it does everything I need it to. A great alternative for someone on a budget is the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed …Read more
