Foundations - FLOWER Beauty - Light Illusion Foundation

If I take price into account, this foundation would be a 4.5 out of 5. However I don't like rating things based on price because then that leads to very misleading review scores where average quality cheap products are rated higher than better performing expensive products.

I have this in L3 which is the perfect yellow shade for my skin which usually sits between an NC15 - NC20. Do …

Foundations - Tarte Cosmetics - Rainforest of the Sea Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I like this foundation but I wouldn't buy it again for several reasons:

It is NOT water based, and it is very misleading of Tarte to advertise it as their "water foundation". It is a silicone based foundation. Check the ingredients. I see people make this common misconception all the time and waste money buying an unnecessary water based primer to work with it, when it …

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Lanolips Tinted Lip Balm

2.0

I bought this in Rose due to the good reviews but I've gotta say, I'm very disappointed in this because it's ridiculously similar to the super cheap gloopy lip glosses you bought as a kid in novelty stores. It does not in any way deserve its $17.50NZD price tag. If I had been handed a tube of this to try out blindly I would have genuinely believed it was cheap plasticy kids makeup …Read more

Masks - Tosowoong - Blackhead Peel Off Pack

So I knew in advance that these kinds of masks are considered a gimmick and pretty much only pull your face hairs out, but I was fine with that since I regularly use AHA/BHA and hate having peach fuzz.

I really dislike this one. It doesn't smell overly strong, but something about it still made my eyes water when it was on my cheekbones. The consistency is bad, it dries out (in the …

Sunscreen - Natio - Moisturising Sun Lotion SPF 50+

2.0

9 months ago

It's hard to know what to rate this as because the advertising and claims are contradictory. I bought this thinking it was a sunscreen because the front of the bottle makes it look like one, with claims of "SPF50", "4 hours water resistant", "protection against UVA/UVB rays" and loads of other claims you only really find on sunscreen bottles, and Beautyheaven …Read more

I have this in medium brown, which is the best shade match I've ever found for my neutral medium/dark brown hair (I'm half Chinese, and find that nearly all of us halfers tend to have the same hair colour/undertone if it helps any of you guys). Nearly every other brow product seems to be very warm toned.

I like the compact packaging and how long it lasts (I hit pan in three …

Bronzers - BECCA - Sunlit Bronzer - Capri Coast

Sep/21/2018

I was given this as a gift, and it's easily one of the best makeup products I've ever used in my life.

I'm NC15-20 and usually prefer a satin matte finish (I was previously using Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil) but this bronzer changed my entire opinion on skin finishes. I apply mine to the tops of my cheekbones and around my hairline with an angled blush brush, and …

Eye Primer - MILANI - Eyeshadow Primer

2.0

Sep/21/2018

Aw, I was really optimistic because I'd heard from loads of people that this was hands down the best eye primer even when price wasn't taken into account.

I have very oily lids, and many "crease proof" eyeshadows crease on me within an hour or two without primer. The inner section of my eyes are hooded, and I have a faded scar in my crease on one eye that is also …

Palettes - wet n wild - Color Icon Eyeshadow 10 Pan Palette - Rose in the Air

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/10/2018

My review is based on product quality, not price. I love saving money on a good quality cheap product as much as anyone, but I dislike cheap products being marked up highly in reviews due solely to the low price, because that results in deceiving scores that make it look like it's better quality than far superior products that cost slightly more, which results in customers wasting money on …Read more

Eye Shadow - Coloured Raine - Single Eyeshadows

Sep/04/2018

It seems silly to post a review after only trying one product from the line, but I thought I might as well since no review page exists yet. People with large collections seem to rate this highly so I may have a poor performing colour, but they also always talk highly about the low price so for all I know this is one of those "good for the price" products, meaning it's actually …Read more
