Liquid - Bourjois - Healthy Mix Foundation

2.0

I'm glad this works for so many people but I want to describe my experience with it for those with skin similar to mine, because it was really bad for me.

In advance, I'd like to state I've had similar reactions to other products, especially foundations in the past, some of those products have a HG status with many users. I'm saying, it seems to boil down to user …

Concealers - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Liquid Concealer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

19 days ago

I want to burn it in a weird and scary anger cleansing ritual the kind of the ones you see in cheap horror movies.

The shade was okay for me but usually the lightest of light shades in almost any line will work okay for me. The issue is that it looks quite flakey, powdery, and settles in creases. This gets worse the longer I have it on, even if it looks like the initial application went …

Moisturizers - Balea - Reichhaltige Tagescreme für trockene und sensible Haut

2.0
Created with Sketch.

19 days ago

I've had great results with cheap balea moisturisers in the past, but not this one.

I wish it said on the packaging that it is best suited for oily skin. I have dry skin and this isn't moisturising at all on me, it feels like it pulls my skin tight like mattifying products rich in starch for example do, and the texture feels powdery when you're applying it. It hasn't …

Brows - essence - Eyebrow Designer Pencil

4.0

I've been using these for years and had them in every shade as I changed hair color. I found it easy to get a solid match for every hair color I was, save for celtic ginger maybe.

They're nothing miraculous, I mean in that it's just a basic pen, but they do a very good job. They last forever even though you have to keep sharpening them, whereas certain twist ups last me …

Eyeliner - Catrice - Made to Stay Inside Eye Highlighter Pen

2.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

I have the same experience as the reviewer below.

Nice shades without obvious glitter in a handy twist up pen, cheap, but the application is just bad. It's uneven, cakey and even chalky in places, skips areas, and it's nearly impossible to blend out the uneven bits. Too bad, as the shade I have would also work as under brow and inner eye corner highlighter, but I just …

Cleansers - Garnier - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

This has been the first and only micellar water I've used so I can't compare it to others, but as a product in its own right it's been downright amazing.

I do not wear heavy makeup, usually just foundation, blush and brow pencil. This cleanses them off so quickly and thoroughly that I would imagine it would be effective for heavier makeup too.

I have had no …

Moisturizers - LUSH - Banana Skin Naked Facial Oil

2 months ago

This is awesome. I'm so grateful to the reviewers here and elsewhere for bringing it to my attention.

I have very dry skin that easily reacts to many products, oils, and butters with acne. So I'm often afraid to try a new product.

This hasn't clogged up my pores or caused acne at all. It cleared up a small dry patch of skin I've had for weeks from eczema. It …

Polishes - essence - Shine Last & Go Gel Polish - Sweet As Candy

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

The quality of this line seems to vary with the shade, I hated the goopy white one in 04, but love the nude pink one in 05.

First off, this says gel, it's regular polish though, no lamp needed. The shade 05 does have an almost gel-like finish though, and amazing lasting power.

It's a very flattering semi-opaque nude shade. The brush and formula are great. It may …

Nails - Unlisted Brand - Depend Nail polish

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

This is a very affordable Swedish brand that generally has great polishes. My favourite ones are the minis pictured above, at a ridiculous two and something euro per bottle. I adore the white shade 031. It is opaque, applies very easily with zero streaks, and is touch-dry in minutes.

The most amazing thing about these is staying power. I wore this when I had two weeks off work, and …

Treatments - Sally Hansen - Nail Growth Miracle

3.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

OK, this probably deserves a higher rating - because I suspect the effects depend mostly on one's nail type. I had the one with the brush, not the dropper, they look very similar.

My nails are naturally strong, healthy, and I have no problem growing them. But at work I wash and disinfect constantly and handle rough abrasive materials, so I end up with a lot of small chips and tears …
