Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - All Shades

It makes me so happy when drugstore brands have excellent products that rival expensive brands that cost twice, thrice and even four times as much! I picked up 'Blackest Black' on a whim one day, and am astounded at how impeccable this gel liner really is - a true, rich black, compare this to MAC's 'Blacktrack' and the latter looks positively grey in shade. The creamy …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Trace Gold

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/28/2014

I actually struggle to describe Trace Gold; is it a blush, highlighter or bronzer? To me, it's a combination of all three, and I really enjoy using it. In the pan it looks like a brown with plenty of gold shimmer. Applied on my NC20-25 skintone, it turns into a sheer bronze with the gold shimmer being very evident. However it's not super-shimmery - the gold acts like a glow, catching …Read more

If you're interested in purchasing MUG eyeshadows, then beware! Once you try them, you will be gripped by an unceasing urge to purchase more, and more, until you have an entire large Z-Palette worth of eyeshadows! I'm definitely speaking from personal experience, I bought 4 out of curiousity, and now I have over 20 eyeshadows. I love them! Most of the shades are everything you want in …Read more

It all started a couple of months ago when I googled 'a dupe for the MAC 222'... I was pointed in the direction of the Hakuhodo J146, developed a love affair with Hakuhodo and have now amassed a well-loved and well-used collection of brushes!


In no particular order, these are the Hakuhodo brushes I own;

Eye Shadow - Makeup Geek - Eyeshadow - Corrupt

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/28/2014

Simply put, this is the blackest eye shadow I have ever used. It's even laughable to compare MAC's Carbon or Black Tied to Corrupt, since those 2 shades need to be built up several times to achieve the rich, intense darkness that Corrupt provides with just ONE swipe. Urban Decay's Blackout is also a worthy contender, but no dice. The first time I used Corrupt, I underestimated its …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Powder Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/28/2014

A Real Techniques brush is always an excellent investment, and the Powder Brush is no exception. I've owned several powder brushes, such as the MAC 116, 129 and 187 brushes, EcoTools powder brush and the Sigma F30. The Real Techniques powder brush blows them all out of the water; sometimes price does NOT reflect quality! In terms of powder application, the brush disperses the powder exactly …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #228 Mini Shader Brush

Created with Sketch.

Apr/09/2014

I've been searching forever for the perfect lower lashline brush, that will allow me to apply eyeshadow in a very thin line and also blend the eyeshadow seamlessly. No brush I have tried has ever given me the results that I want; the MAC 266 was too thin and created sharp lines, the MAC 219 was too thick and didn't blend eyeshadow properly, and the No7 'Smokey Eye Brush' also …Read more

Apr/06/2014

I've edited my original review of MSFN as I've given it another try with the Real Techniques Powder Brush, and NOW I see why this powder is so loved! I don't know how, but the brush made the see the powder in a whole new, positive way. All I do is swipe the brush into the powder, then apply all over my face, concentrating on my t-zone and chin. I don't use it under my eyes …Read more

Makeup Brushes - NARS Cosmetics - 27 - Yachiyo

Mar/10/2014

I am a such a NARS roll lately, first the primer, then the concealer, and now the Yachiyo! I have been coveting this brush for an incredibly long time, but the hefty price tag put me off, even thinking about it makes me shudder. Well, thanks to an ASOS 20% code I finally snapped it up. I freaking love it! It works SO well with brightly coloured blushers, all you need to do is tap your brush in …Read more

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Radiant Creamy Concealer

Created with Sketch.

Mar/10/2014

I fancied a concealer change from my Double Wear concealer and gave into all the hype regarding NARS's creamy concealer. I found my perfect NC20-25 match in the shade 'Custard', which is incredibly similar to my Double Wear 'Light Medium' shade, but a touch more yellow. The pigmentation is just outstanding and the formula is smooth and spreadable, whereas my Double Wear …Read more
