This product worked to reduce oily skin, but I didn't notice any pore reduction or change in redness - mind you, I don't have terribly red or pore-y(?) skin to begin with. The first time I used it, my skin got red and kind of warm as soon as I applied it, so I rinsed it off. Subsequent uses were fine. This product was just okay for me, but it wasn't expensive so I'm not devo …Read more

Skincare - Face - Deciem - The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%

I know next to nothing about acids and stuff, but a friend recommended this to me and it works great! I don't have sensitive skin so I went straight for the 10%. It really does remove the top layer of skin, leaving behind an almost freakishly smooth layer. I only ever use it once or maximum twice a week, usually only when my skin is a bit rough or pimply. The main reason I don't use …Read more

Polishes - RIMMEL - 60 Seconds Super Shine Nail Polish - Berries And Cream

This is the first red I've tried and honestly, I love it. I didn't think I was a red polish person, but wow. It's deep, rich, and sophisticated - dark and jewel-toned enough to look great on my olive skin, but bright enough in light to be like "oh, yeah, RED!!" It's cool-toned, almost berry coloured. I actually thought it was berry in the store lighting, but I was …Read more

I have this in Glow with the Flow and Oceans Away. They both have a thick formula which is easy to apply and shape, self-leveling, and are both quite opaque and richly pigmented (I am OBSESSED with the deep slate blue of Oceans Away. DELICIOUS). They have a funky smell but I'm sure that's the oils in them, which goes straight into the nail plate, so no base coat with these. (Good …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Tickle My France-y

This is straight-up purple on me, not the pinky nude I was hoping for. Really not sure what's up; perhaps I have a weird bottle, or weird nails? Even thought I got it on sale, still not super happy with it. It's a nice colour, just not for me. The formula is great, though, smooth and self-leveling, although I believe the edges get a bit transparent. Sorry, OPI!

Treatments (Face) - W7 - Princess Potion Complexion Booster & Primer

5.0

This is a serumy-type product that works to hydrate your skin and make it glowy and smooth. Over time I've noticed it helps make my skin smoother, probably due to the hydrating hyaluronic acid. I don't use it as a primer, I use it before bed to pamper myself and feel calm, because the SCENT. IS. AMAZING. It's very sweet, like candy but a little bit herbal, and when the smell fades …Read more

BB Cream - MISSHA - M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++

I am never buying another BB cream. I am set for life with this one. It's incredible. Hooooly crap. Applies nicely, blurs pores, actually does good things for your skin, has good UV protection, smells nice, moisturising but not oily, and the colour...my god, the colour actually matches my olive skin. Oh thank you, Korea. No more orange BB creams for me.
And it doesn't cost an arm …

Polishes - RIMMEL - I Love Lasting Finish Nail Polish - Black Cherries

3.0

6 months ago

It really is the colour of black cherries. Dark reddish purple, like a real plum (the purple kind, not the magenta kind). It sparkles a little under light, and looks creme otherwise. Has the look of dark polish but you can still tell it's purple. It can be a little patchy, so you need two thick coats to really get it opaque. I might buy again if I couldn't find another purple with this …Read more

Foundations - REVLON - ColorStay Full Cover Foundation

Sadly, this looks like crap on my skin. Back to Revlon ColorStay Stay Natural. I bought this in Buff, which is the same colour I buy in the Colorstay liquid foundation, and the colour is more or less the same, perhaps a little lighter. It has a little more whipped texture but is easy to apply.

Sadly it clings to my dry spots and collects on blemishes and kind of just makes me look dry …

BB Cream - RIMMEL - BB Cream Matte 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup SPF 15

I have a version of this that's not labelled "Matte", but the formula is pretty matte, so I'm putting this review here.
I have this in Light. Sadly, Light is still too dark for me most of the year. I can only use this in summer really.
That's the only downside, because I love this BB cream otherwise: Good coverage, covers redness, really blurs pores and …
