BB Cream - Too Faced - Tinted Beauty Balm Multi-Benefit Skin Care Makeup [DISCONTINUED]

4.0

Jan/12/2014

Given this is a BB cream, I was pleasantly surprised by the EXCELLENT wear and coverage, even in a hot + humid climate. And Too Faced are a vegan brand, love them! My only criticism is the colour selection - details below:

My skin and environment:
Olive/ yellow toned, sensitive and prone to breaking out, combination, some pigment-scarring from acne.
Hot humid climate - my …

Misc Beauty Tools - Tweezerman - Super Curler Eyelash Curler

Reeeaaallllyyy surprised by the bad reviews because I LOVE this thing!

My eyeballs:
I have deep set almond eyes, and short useless lashes. The mere sight of those evil metal curlers makes my eyes water - they pinch my delicate little eyelid skin! So I bought this product many moons ago specifically due to the 'open' design (no side bars). And amazingly, this thing cost a …

Lipstick - Hourglass Cosmetics - Femme Rouge - Raven

Ah, the never ending search for THE red.

I have an olive/yellow complexion so was after a warm-based bright red that is all like 'looking hot in my bright red lippy, Penelope Cruz/1940s style' rather than like 'hey my lipstick enters the room 5 mins before the rest of my face' - I already have one of those (blue based red).

Description:
Bright red …

Lipstick - Too Faced - La Creme Lipstick - Razzle Dazzle Rose

OK compared to mascaras and foundations, I think it's far easier to summarise a lipstick performance (unless it is a/the 'red' lipstick, that is a demon all unto its own)...

Good stuff about this:
1. Cute as heck candy colour without being excessively tween/barbie, rather 1960s mod. Yes agree with that other review down below about it having 'lavender …

Conditioner - Moroccanoil - Extra Volume Conditioner

4.0

Jan/07/2014

I think this is actually called 'Extra Volume Conditioner', but anyway, a bit about my conditioning needs:
I have reasonably healthy hair as I do not dye it or style it that often, however it is coarse, long, and I do go out into the sun/surf on a weekly basis, so the ends are a bit dry/damaged. I do not aim for smooth conditioning results (hence using a volumizing product), but I …

Shampoo - L'anza - Healing Volume Shampoo

5.0

Jan/06/2014

OK me and my hair summary:
I have long, thick, heavy hair (not dyed) and I use volume shampoos to get some oomph and emphasise 'natural/ beachy' curls... I do not do 'smooth' as I have a pin-head and that look is ridiculous on me. Please note: I also have a fabulous hairdresser that gives me an excellent cut that emphasises any 'wave' and takes a lot of the bulk …

Jan/06/2014

So me and my lashes:
Deep set eyes with warm/oily skin (transfer and bleeding an issue).
Short, sparse generally crappy lashes.
I like to build the heck out of my lashes and get drama drama drama, even if I'm just going to the shop for some eggs, it's all or nothing dammit!
I don't want any little creatures hurt because I want gorgeous, fluttery …

Powder - Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics - Loose Natural Mineral Foundation

4.0

Jan/06/2014

OK brace yourself, I go into A LOT of detail here.

I have been using YB loose powder foundation for over 10 years so obviously I find it is doing something right. My skin has aged (10 years is a while in skin years), I have relocated from a dry to very humid and hot climate, and I have annoyingly sensitive skin. I first tried YB because I suffered from acne and was concerned about not …

Mascara - Urban Decay - Big Fatty Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/18/2013

Me/ What I'm looking for/ How I use the product:
I have light coloured lashes that are both sparse and not particularly long. I am more interested in volume than length (however both is a huge bonus), and when it comes to application I INVEST in that sh*t. I do not expect wonders from one or two coats, rather I like to build and sculpt my lashes, so I need a product that can do this …
