Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Telescopic Shocking Extensions

3.0

Mar/11/2015

Eh. I did get the waterproof one. I like the brush because I can get pretty close to my teeny tiny bottom lashes. But the formula is nothing to write home about. I don't find that it lengthens my lashes dramatically. Great for separating though. No volume to be had here. Holds a curl well enough on my stick straight Asian lashes. But! It smudges. Even though it's waterproof, it smudges …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous in Pink Cognito

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/24/2014

Wow. This lipstick deceived me. In the tube it looks like a pretty nude-beige-pink. On the lips it is clear with sparkles.

Yeah. I feel a little bit scandalized. I don't usually allow myself to be tricked.

As far as the formula goes, it reminds me of MAC lustre formula lipsticks. Thin consistency, but has slip. Doesn't accentuate my flaky lips too …

Liquid - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/22/2014

I'm loving the formula, finish, and coverage of this foundation. I, too, looked at a good many blogs and watched a good many YouTube videos about this foundation and I've never been so excited about a drugstore foundation as I have for this.

I have oily/dehydrated skin (dry when washed and gets really oily throughout the day). It can be sensitive. I used to have cystic acne …

Foundations - MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD High Definition Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/17/2014

This is my favorite foundation for events where I know my face is going to end up on camera whether I like it or not. The coverage is medium and buildable to full. It does a fantastic job of blurring out lines and imperfections. My acne scars are practically invisible with this on. It doesn't have SPF so it's VERY flash-friendly. It's the only foundation I can count on to not get …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Setting Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/14/2014

This is definitely my favorite brush out of all the Real Techniques brushes. I own most of the line and find most of the brushes to be very multi-purpose, but the Setting Brush is one that I reach for daily and plan to have many backups of.

It's great for highlighting the cheekbones because it's just small enough to swipe on top of the cheek and not the whole cheek. It's …

Polishes - L'Oreal Paris - Royalty Reinvented

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/12/2014

This was my first L'Oreal nail polish and I'm in love with the formula. Well, technically this is my second because the first bottle I bought years ago is still sitting untried.

Anyway, Royal Reinvented is a springy, Eastery color. Reminds me of those Easter chocolate covered almond candies with the candy shell. It's like that but with a deeper lavender color saturation …

Concealers - NYX Professional Makeup - HD Photogenic Concealer

Jan/12/2014

This concealer is the "whole package" for me. I have it in a couple shades but I'm going to talk about CW04/Beige specifically. It's a good match for my NC25/C25 skin.

I think the texture and consistency of this is the best I've come across for a multi-purpose concealer. It's neither thin nor thick which makes it great for covering acne, scarring, spots …

Polishes - Essie - Midnight Cami

3.0

Jan/12/2014

I have a love/hate relationship with this color. The deep midnight blue black with subtle shimmer is so beautiful. But the formula...! It's a pain. Which makes me not reach for it.

It's thin and floods my cuticles and skin if I'm not careful. I really have to put in the effort to maneuver the product on my nails. On the other hand, it is a one-coater (though I always use …

BB Cream - Lioele - Dollish Cera-V CC Cream SPF34/PA++

Dec/27/2013

Update 1.21.2013

I have to drop a lippie because I think this actually makes me breakout. I keep noticing new whiteheads at the end of the day or the next morning whenever I wear this. Unfortunately the oil control is not as good as I initially thought it was either. It does have a bit of a heavy feel to it. Boo.

Color me impressed.

I used BB …

Mascara - SHISEIDO - Nourishing Mascara Base

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/24/2013

I've had this on my Sephora shopping list for years and I finally decided to get it...and it's turning every mascara into the mascara of my dreams. My eyelashes don't hold a curl unless I'm using a waterproof mascara. All non-waterproof mascaras that claim to hold a curl fall flat on me. Why don't I just use waterproof mascaras? Because 1) they are so tough to remove, and …Read more
