Lip Gloss - CANMAKE - Stay-On Balm Rouge

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/18/2016

Maybe it's the shade I picked but I found this just to be soso (shade 2 is a orange tint which looked like my many other orange tints).

The balm is very glossy on application and makes me feel like a glossy mess when the weather is hot (fyi, i'm not big on the glossy lips look).

The shape, size and placement of the turning mechanism is also poorly considered imo as …

Eye Makeup Remover - Lancôme - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/13/2016

Very expensive for what it is.
It takes off eye makeup okay, I have to go in with several swipes to get mascara entirely off.
I don't like this because it leaves an oily film around my eyes, making it very uncomfortable and there are better oil/water eye makeup remover mixtures out there that are much more amazing than this and cost less.

Liquid - Bourjois - 123 Perfect Foundation

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/05/2016

I don't know what is going on with this foundation but it does not last on me!
My redness shows through within two hours (and I've tried different powders to set it with) and it emphasised dry patches on my cheeks and along uneven surfaces.

The coverage is light and gets cakey when I go for a second layer.

This was one of my first foundations and what a …

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish - Lightscapade

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2016

-Gorgeous soft cool white sheen
-Medium pigmentation (which I find is great because it's build able and more natural)
-Does not look patchy/uneven (might look patchy if you pile heaps of layers on but that's a given with most powder highlights)
-Pretty to look at in compact! (superficial I know, but still)

One of my favourite highlighters so far; if you have …

Sunscreen - Bioré - UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen SPF50+ PA+++

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/21/2015

I like to use this on my body rather than face because I find it stings (probably due to alcohol), but other than that, I like the watery lightweight texture, it's not greasy and has no white cast.

I would only repurchase it if I was in japan because buying it here in Australia is $20 and I can buy sunscreen with more product with that price here.

Blush - Sleek MakeUP - Blush By 3 Flame

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/21/2015

Theoretically, Sleek blushes should be great; they have amazing colour selection and they are super pigmented. But I think therein lies the problem. See, the formula of these blushes are very stiff and hard to blend (depending on the brush you use, some will even apply unevenly but that would be mainly the brush's fault); so because they are very pigmented, when you put it on the face …Read more

Palettes - Sleek MakeUP - Sunset palette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/21/2015

Maybe it's because I have many shades already like this palette but I am not as satisfied with this palette as I was with Oh So Pretty.

My problem with this palette is that there are too many similar shades (the coppers especially) and only one matte (and a black one at that, albeit a very good black but still). All shades leaned more coppery/warm orange and I wish some were more …

Eye Shadow - Sleek MakeUP - i-Divine Palette - Oh So Special

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/21/2015

Oh man.

I'm not one to be fussy about palette colour arrangements since I like to pull eyeshadows from different pans/quads for looks but THIS IS THE BEST EYE PALETTE EVARRRRRR! (excuse me while I get excited like a 5 year old)

This palette has a great shade range with plenty of mattes and pearl/metallic finishes. The colour selections allow you to do neutral brown …

Cleansers - BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Micellar Cleansing Water and Makeup Remover Solution

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/21/2015

I bought this on sale at 40%, but if I were to buy full price, it'll be $44 AUD, which is the main reason why I may not be repurchasing this.

This is a very gentle makeup remover; I reserve this only to remove eyeshadow/brows as I find it wasteful to remove base makeup and this does not remove mascara well (because it's not oil based).

Some may say drugstore …

Misc Beauty Tools - Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/21/2015

People say this is a dupe for the beauty blender. I say this is far from a dupe for BB; not because of its appearance, but because of its texture.

The BB is very bouncy and squishy, applying the foundation more smoothly and seamlessly.
The RT sponge is much more hard and dense, which means not only you're punching your face (figuratively of course, still not a pleasant …
