Primer/ Corrector - Illamasqua - Matt Primer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/30/2012

I was looking for a new primer after my Urban Decay pore perfecting one ran out. and since I knew Illamasqua is a great brand with great products, I decided to give this a try.

I chose the matte primer because I want my primer to make my makeup last longer, rather than look luminous (plus I have slightly oily skin).

this feels quite light and runny when you apply it, but …

Misc Beauty Tools - MAC Cosmetics - Brush Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/01/2012

I previously used the Clinique brush cleanser and bought the MAC one because it is cheaper and there is more in the bottle.

I took out the Clinique pump spray and used it in the MAC one. but had to cut it down a bit as the Clinique bottle is taller.

like many reviews mention on here, the MAC cleanser is more for quick and frequent cleaning as opposed to a more deep and …

Fragrances - Dior - Miss Dior Cherie [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/22/2012

Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf is and always will be, my number one favourite perfume. but this comes in at a very close number 2 !

Miss Dior Chérie is pretty and flowery and sweet. it smells expensive too. I think it's on the safe side, Dior could have made this more voluptuous and played on the strawberry and caramel popcorn notes to make it stand out, because there are so …

BB Cream - Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector - Light/Medium

I got samples of this from the Garnier website.

I got the "light" colour. it matches my true skin colour (sort of) but matches my natural tan colour better.

the stuff is quite thick but easily blends into a very thin layer, you have to keep building it up. there isn't a great deal of colour, this lets skin shine through.

this stuff is very shiny! …

Self Tanners - St.Tropez - Tinted Self Tanning Mousse/Whipped Bronze

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/29/2012

out of all the fake tans I have tried, this is the most expensive, but also the best.

I need 2 to 3 coats of this to get an actual tan. with one coat of St Tropez I can achieve the same result with Dove summer glow, and for 1/6 of the price.

but 2 to 3 coats give a real looking, even tan. it loses a lot of its colour when you wash it off 4 hours after application. so I …

Liquid - Illamasqua - Skin Base foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/29/2012

this is, without exaggeration, the best foundation in the world !
I have found what they call the Holy Grail foundation
everything about it is perfect! the colour, the consistency, the application, the finish.

I have a hard time finding the right colour with foundations, even when being professionally matched. but Skin Base has a realistic and true-to-skin colour selection …

Jan/18/2012

I bought the Meteorites brush along with the pearls 3 months ago, I had been wanting them for ages and finally caved.

I bought the brush because it's so adorable and matches the pearls.
there is far too much hating on this brush! trust me guys, it's really not that bad. I like mine!

the brush is kind of small. the bristles aren't really that small …

Highlighters - GUERLAIN - Meteorites Perles Teint Rose

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/18/2012

I at first (like most people) thought these were a highlighter for the cheeks. they're not! this is a finishing powder designed to illuminate the skin.

and also like most people, I saw no difference at first. but then you look more closely and think yes, something is diffrent.

I always say Guerlain are contradicting themselves, claiming that the meteorites line …

Primer/ Corrector - Yves Saint Laurent - Touche Eclat (Radiant Touch)

4.0

Oct/18/2011

this is the perfect under-eye concealer. nothing else compares (other than MAC moisture cover concealer, which is just as perfect).
the colour is realistic and pinky :D and not yellow ( shade No 1 )
I use one or two pumps and put it onto my finger to get the full amount of product out. and then onto my eyes with my finger.
one pump for a natural look without foundation. and two …
