Hair - Unlisted Brand - Zala Clip In Hair Extensions

1.0

1 month ago

I tried these extensions a while ago and they are of very poor quality.Thin, knotty hair that looked and felt like doll hair (not in a good way). I didn't write a review then, but I am now because I keep seeing all these obviously fake reviews that have been popping up lately (it's really easy to spot the fake reviews vs the legit ones lol) and since I am someone that relies a lot on …Read more

Blush - MILANI - Rose Powder Blush - Blossomtime Rose

3.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

Unfortunately this didn't work for me, and I'm not sure why as I'm light enough (NC15) where even Benefit Dandelion shows on me as a blush.

I bought 2 of these - this shade and Tea Rose, and while Tea Rose is slightly noticeable, it is very faint as well. However Blossomtime Rose doesn't show up at all.

Also, I don't feel like the brushes I tried (a fan …

Cleansers - Lancôme - Miel-en-Mousse Foaming Face Cleanser & Makeup Remover

I am really impressed with this cleanser! I was going to re-buy my HG Clinique TTDO Cleansing Oil, but saw this and wanted to try, as I like honey-based products. Thankfully it didn't disappoint (especially given the price!).

They say to use it on dry face, and this is what I do. It feels exactly like you're spreading honey on your face - not much slip at all, quite the …

Hair Treatments - Deciem - The Ordinary Hair Care Multi Peptide Serum for Hair Density

5.0

7 months ago

This works, somehow! My hair has been thinned out by some fusion extensions that ripped out a lot of it, so I was desperately searching for something to help it regrow faster and regain some thickness. I took some hair growth pills and tried this serum, and within 2 months my hair is now almost normal looking, longer and thicker! I give this serum most of the credit, I'm sure the pills …Read more

Foundations - Hard Candy - Glamoflauge 16 Wear HR Full Coverage Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

This has to be the biggest surprise I've ever had make-up wise, because I have never imagined that a $7 foundation could perform tons better than quite a lot of high end ones!
Hard Candy is a brand that never appealed to me, and the little I tried from it was just subpar.
But I have been looking for a daytime foundation and didn't want to pay $50+ , and after some trial and …

Misc Beauty Tools - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Sculpting and Blending Sponge

4.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

I was so surprised to like this sponge! For me it's way, way better than the RT one (too stiff and just moves my foundation around my face without blending it in properly).
My old BB is on its last legs, and since I refuse to pay $30 on a sponge, I have been trying cheaper alternatives. I also have (and kind of like) the Lise Watier black one, but it is still a bit stiffer than the BB …

Liquid - MILANI - Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer

Unfortunately this is as bad as the bad reviews say it is (including YouTube reviewers).

I bought it on a whim, in an attempt to save my wallet from shelling yet another $50 when my regular daytime foundation ran out, but no... I had to bin it after the first use.

To start with what I liked about it, the bottle is cute and well made, with a good pump. Also, the lightest …

Lipstick - L'Oreal Paris - Colour Riche Gold Addiction Satin Lipstick

4.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

This is a LE product from L'Oreal, in the Colour Riche range. It comes in 12 very pretty shades, is made with omega 3 oils, vitamin E and gold micro shimmer, and claims to hydrate lips and impart an intense colour pigment.

I got the shade 958 Pink Gold, and I wish I had gotten a few other shades but not knowing anything about the product, I didn't want to risk …

Loose Powders - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Setting Powder

2.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I had such high hopes for this powder, but back to Sephora it goes.

I got the shade Butter, which matches me well especially since it is mostly translucent. On first application I liked the smooth finish it gave me, so I thought for sure it was going to be a keeper.
The second day, I thought I felt some slight itching on my face but figured it was just my imagination. I wore it …

Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Candy Slick Glowy Lip Color

2.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

Impulse buy, the cute tube appealed to me, so did the color I got (Cream Bee).
Unfortunately, it is awful in more ways than one!
* The shade looks great in the tube, a dusty rose very close to what I was looking for and can't find. On my lips it is way lighter and the color is sheer, barely there. Not much color payoff.
* Application is uneven and requires some work to make it …
