I was already in love with the NYX HD Primer so I gave this one a shot. I think this one is even better. I work in a warehouse and do lots of heavy lifting everyday and this stuff helped my eyeshadow stay put through the sweating. I still saw a lot of shimmer on my eyelids after an 8 hour day, which is awesome!

Compared to the HD primer, this one is stickier, which is probably why it …

This is a review for the new yellow one, not the teal-coloured one shown in above. The old one contained mineral oil, the new one does not. It has castor, cotton and sunflower seed oil.

I normally use Banila Co Clean it Zero but since the CAD is so weak now, I can't justify paying for it anymore. I figured I would give this a try since it was $19 CAD for 190 mL, which I think is …

Horrible nail file. I broke my Sephora one and just randomly picked one up at the drugstore. This thing was dull after 2-3 weeks and no longer filed anything. What a waste of money.

This stuff helped my makeup survive in the 35+ degree Celsius/80%+ humidity weather when I was in Hong Kong in the summer. I even went to Disneyland with foundation, concealer, winged liner and mascara and it was still there at the end of the day. Not as fresh as in the morning obviously, but my wings were intact more than 12 hours after application so I would say that's a success. HG spray …Read more

Sep/30/2016

After reading rave reviews, I had a friend buy one for me when she was in Japan. I was so excited to try it! Unfortunately, it did not work out for me. It does not last very long and flakes like crazy. Some of the flakes even got into my contact lens so I've been too scared to try it again because of irritation.

I was in Hong Kong recently and decided to buy it again, just in case …

Eyeliner - KOJI - Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner

Sep/30/2016

I bought 2 of these when I was in Hong Kong and I was excited because Dolly Wink seems to be really popular when it comes to eye stuff (their mascaras and false lashes are super popular).

The applicator is a brush like the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and the Clio Kill Black. Really easy to get a sharp, fine-tipped wing if you're into that. However, there are several reasons why I rated …

This is a review for the original pink version.

This is my favourite makeup remover although it is not the best I have used.

My normal routine is to remove my eye makeup, gently rub my face with baby oil and then rinse off with a foaming cleanser. Clean It Zero turns those three steps into one step. Most of the time.

For my every day makeup, Clean It Zero is fine …

Finally, a yellow drugstore foundation!

This is a thinner but buildable foundation that is great for those who don't need much coverage but if you're looking for full coverage, this is probably not the foundation for you. I would say it can be built up to medium coverage but it cannot be as full coverage as Kat Von D Lock It for example.

I normally wear NARS in the …

Jul/20/2016

I wanted a dupe for the Kat Von D brush liner so I picked this up when it was on sale.

This isn't as black as the name suggests, more like a dark grey. It's also very patchy. Whenever I try to re-draw over a line, it drags off the original line and leaves a blank patch. I have to go over it with another liquid liner.

It also doesn't last very long, a couple of …

I cried my eyes out during Finding Dory and somehow my eyeliner was the only thing that remained. I did winged eyeliner that day and it remained intact at the end of the movie. My mascara wasn't so lucky. :P

I deducted one for the applicator though. It's kind of flimsy and hard to get a sharp point.
