Lipstick - Urban Decay - Vice Lipstick - Bad Blood

Really pleased with this one! I have fair skin with warm/muted/olive undertones, MAC Face&Body in C1 is one of my best foundation matches, and lipstick shades tend to read a lot more blue on my lips than they do in the tube. MAC Russian Red is very blue on me, for example, veering almost towards magenta, so I always look for warm undertones in lip colours.

I love red lipstick, I wear …

Moisturizers - VICHY - Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum Moisturizer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

My skin: 41, normal/combo/dry, prone to acne and dehydration.

I like this! I got this entirely because my package with refills of the Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium lotion got lost and took over a month longer to get here, so I ran out of my usual hyaluronic acid lotion and had to get something similar that is available on shelves here in Sweden.

This seemed like the closest thing …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1%

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

My skin: 41, normal/combo/dry with some redness and large pores. Prone to acne and dehydration, but mostly clear and well-behaved now, bar the occasional hormonal pimple. No wrinkles to speak of, yet.

Sadly, this breaks me out and I'm passing it on to a friend, who loves it. I was very intrigued by the copper peptides, I did feel like the Buffet may have helped to calm irritation …

Lash Treatments - Unlisted Brand - LiLash Purified Eyelash Serum

4.0

6 months ago

Ok, so I've been using LiLash for two months now and I am seeing results. I have puny natural lashes, they are short, straight, fine and fairly weak. They are barely visible even with mascara unless I curl them, and they don't hold the curl unless I use a very waterproof mascara, preferably Asian ones developed for straight Asian lashes. In other words, I'm also pretty hard on my …Read more

Moisturizers - HADA LABO - Gokujyun Perfect Gel

4.0

My skin: generally combination, leaning dry in the winter and slightly oily in the summer, although the last year or so it's been settling in kind of normal, actually. I used to have mild to moderate acne for years and years, which I managed to mostly clear up last year. Apart from the odd acne flare-up, I've been feeling almost weirdly happy with my skin lately. I have large pores, but …Read more

Eye Shadow - Bobbi Brown - Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick - Nude Beach

Really enjoying this. I'm not much of an eyeshadow person, I have slightly hooded lids that are becoming more pronounced now, at 40. I get a bit of wrinkling and crêpey texture around the crease/hood, and I have oily lids. I like matte, neutral eyeshadows that mostly just do some very basic contouring in the eye area, creating a bit more depth, and especially long-lasting cream formulas …Read more

Brows - MAC Cosmetics - Shape + Shade Brow Tint

5.0

8 months ago

Fantastic brow product, by far my favourite. I have this in Taupe and Spiked, I get much more use out of Taupe than Spiked, since it's quite a bit lighter and more daytime-friendly, although I really like and wear both. I have pretty decent natural brows with fine hairs that tend to stray outside the shape I want them in a lot, so I love this both for filling in sparse areas and for creating …Read more

Treatments (Face) - COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid

5.0

8 months ago

Right! My skin: currently mostly normal-ish, sometimes combination, often, but not currently dehydrated, and I used to have mild to moderate, stubborn acne. Got on top of that sometime this spring, mainly thanks to the TO 10% Azelaic Acid.

I added this to my routine a few months ago, around September/October last year I think, because I was having a small flare-up of acne again. I …

Loose Powders - Coty - Airspun Loose Face Powder

3.0

8 months ago

It's a loose powder. It does exactly what it's supposed to do. I may be the only person in the world who actually enjoys the scent - L'Origan, isn't it, if I remember right? - as a vintage fragrance enthusiast. It's definitely unnecessary, face products shouldn't be fragranced, but it is rather a lovely old school fragrance, and having been around with something like …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

I'll have to make a note not to keep trying volumizing mascaras with huge wands, I think, no matter how much hype they get. They're just not my kind of mascara.

This one is pretty nice, as volumizing mascaras with huge wands go, but I have the world's puniest lashes and I want definition, separation and curl above all else. After that length, that's nice to have …
