Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Professional Makeup Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks

I'm surprised at all the low ratings, because this is honestly one of the best liquid lipstick formulas I've tried - and that's an amazing feat, considering its incredibly low price point. However, looking at the wide shade range, I'm willing to bet the issue lies in that the formula greatly varies depending on the color. Darker, vampy shades and neon shades tend to be the …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Too Faced - Hangover Rx Replenishing Face Primer

1.0

Mar/30/2018

I received a little foil packet recently and was excited to try this out. As a dry-skinned lizard, I had high hopes for this primer. Sadly, it does nothing for me. In fact, it was more of a detriment than using no primer at all. This applies like a thick lotion and even after giving it 5 minutes to set, as I applied my foundation, it seemed to mix with it, turning my liquidy foundation into a …Read more

Skincare - Face - Mario Badescu - Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater

I'm not convinced that this product is anything more than colored, fragranced water, but hey, it makes my makeup look nice and dewy, and that's all I really expect out of it. It's also nice to use at the end of your skincare routine or as a midday refresher. But honestly, it doesn't do much more than that. I think MAC Fix+ is the superior product overall, but that gets …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Lipstick - Dolce Vita

I've come to appreciate sheer lipsticks throughout the years, but still, this particular one is way too expensive for what it is. I got a full-size in a Sephora Favorites kit, but I'd never willingly buy this for the full price. It's a lovely color - a super sheer mauvey pink that truly fits the definition of MLBB, but it does that thing where it bunches up in the inside of your …Read more

Toners - Lancôme - Tonique Confort

My HG toner. If you have dry skin, I advise you to try this out. The high price might be a deterrent, but given that it's a gooier consistency, it does last much longer than a watery toner. As the name implies, this toner truly does feel comfortable on the skin - not drying or irritating whatsoever. While some toners seem to suck out all the moisture in your skin, this one actually adds …Read more

Lips - Bite Beauty - Amuse Bouche Lipstick

4.0

Mar/28/2018

When Bite discontinued their Luminous Creme lipsticks (that was years ago), I was crestfallen. However, the replacement Amuse Bouche lipsticks do not disappoint. I own Sake, which is such a beautiful, rich mauve. It's very similar to Colourpop's Ultra Satin in Dopey, a popular shade from that line.

This is a creamy lipstick with a classic sort of satin finish, a happy …

Lip Treatments - LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask

Meh. This works alright. My lips feel pretty soft the next morning but I don't think it's particularly hydrating. It doesn't perform any better than a cheap lip balm for me, yet it costs exponentially more.

If you insist on purchasing this product, definitely get it from Korean beauty retailers or Ebay because Sephora hikes the price up like crazy.

Lotions/ Creams - Tree Hut - Brazilian Nut Shea Body Butter

Tree Hut makes such amazing body butter. The price/oz is unbeatable, all of them smell delectable, and they keep your skin quenched for days, and that is not an exaggeration. The Brazilian Nut might be one of my favorites among the line. It smells like some sort of nutty coffee cake drizzled with lots of caramel. Just sniffing it is an indulgent experience - without the calories, thankfully.

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick (All Shades)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/24/2018

Something about this formula doesn't sit well on my lips. It is indeed very lustrous and glides on the lips easily, but it's also kind of grainy and patchy at times. It's passable, but it's not quite up to par with most of my other lipsticks, especially mid-range/luxury ones. The price point is nice and there are some really beautiful colors in the range, though, so …Read more

Eye Primer - Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/24/2018

An oldie but a goodie. I've used this throughout all the repackagings and reformulations and it still remains my favorite eye primer. It drastically enhances the vividness and intensity of eyeshadows and locks them in place for the whole day. The texture is perfect for the job, too - not too dry and crumbly and not too oily. I will never do an eye look without priming first, because …Read more
