Skincare - Face - Clé de Peau Beauté - Deep Cleansing Oil

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/05/2018

Doesn't rinse clean, which is an immediate dealbreaker for me.

It did remove makeup, but required a bit of massaging and felt really heavy on the skin. It doesn't emulsify well, and leaves quite a film on the skin.

There are so many better cleansing oils for way less.

Shampoo - Redken - All Soft Shampoo

1.0

Apr/21/2018

This shampoo weighs down my hair and leaves a residue over time, which looks greasy. I also suspect it irritates my scalp a bit, as I get some flakiness after a few uses. I've used this on and off for a few weeks at a time, and I always end up going back to something else.

I tried to use this up when I wash my bangs in the sink between hair washes, but it just weighs my hair down …

Highlighters - COVER FX - Custom Enhancer Drops

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/10/2018

First, the packaging peaks, and the dropper needs a better stopper. As is, a ton of product gets caked around the mouth of the bottle, and too much comes out on the outside of the stopper. If not stored upright, this will leak slowly, no matter how tightly the lid is on

Because it doesn't seal, it dries out easily and became chunky quickly. It is so pigmented that once it starts …

Treatments (Eye) - Neostrata - Intense Eye Contour All-in-One Serum

Jan/21/2018

I can't say anything about the efficacy of this product, since it irritated my skin so badly. It gave me chapped, irritated, peeling skin around my eyes, no matter what I layered on top or underneath. I am no stranger to actives, but my skin absolutely hated this.

I can't comment on the efficacy of this product, because I couldn't stand the texture for long enough for it to do anything. It feels like a thick primer, yet it is difficult to spread onto the skin. The directions say to apply this under moisturiser, but it felt like it was suffocating my skin, and when I applied my moisturiser, it sat on top of my skin rather than absorbing as usual …Read more

Styling Products - Bumble and bumble - Repair Blow Dry

2.0

Jan/15/2017

Did absolutely nothing for me, and the smell is horrendous.

I applied this to damp hair and blow dried with a round brush as usual. My hair seemed a bit puffier than usual. Not frizzy, not voluminous, just puffy. I will say that my hair feels quite light, this product does not add any weight at all, but I am not a fan of this weird puffiness.

The smell, ugh. Kind of like …

Mascara - Tarte Cosmetics - Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara

3.0

Jun/03/2016

I got a deluxe sample in the Sephora lash stash.

First impressions - I hate this kind of packaging where the stopper is deep down in the tube instead of right at the end. It is impossible to keep clean and it means you can't remove excess mascara from the tip of the wand easily.

I do like how black this mascara is, and it wears great. The first time I used it I …

Lip Gloss - Bite Beauty - Lush Fruit Lipgloss in Mimosa

1.0

Jan/01/2016

Didn't work for me.

First, the doe foot is too small so I had to dip a few times to get enough product to comfortably spread around my mouth, so points off for the applicator. Yes, I did have this as a mini, but a deluxe sample size should be to entice me to buy one for full size and price. (If this was the only issue I wouldn't mention , but it's not, so I wouldn't …

Lipstick - Almay - Smart Shade Butter Kiss Lipstick

2.0

Dec/27/2015

I have the shade 60 - pink light medium. The shade is pretty but I find the texture both greasy and drying.

I don't think they are really as close to Revlon Lip Butters as some say. They have the same kind of sheer colour payoff but they are nowhere near the comfortable texture.

An easy purge.

BB Cream - ANNA SUI - Illuminating BB Cream

2.0

Oct/20/2015

This review is for the lighter shade, 01 Light Beige.

Like all Anna Sui products, this one contains the signature tea rose scent. It does not linger or bother me, but it's worth nothing for others.

The colour is neutral, leaning slightly yellow. I'm a between NC15 and 20 and this was a great match for me.

The "illuminating" finish wasn't …
