Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Deep Throat

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Deep Throat has that peachy pink shade I was hoping the cult favourite Orgasm would be (in reality it was far too orange and ruddy on my NW13 skin). This gives me that "got a little sun" pink that looks youthful but not overdone, and has just enough shimmer that looks like a glow rather than glitter. Wear time is 6-8 hours and one of the few blushes I've ever hit pan on.

Eyeliner - NYX Professional Makeup - Epic Ink Liner

This is definitely one of the better drugstore liquid liners that come in pen form, it isn't too firm or soft and its really quick and easy to line the eyes and do winged liner. I have brown and black and both are pigmented enough that one run through is enough. I don't set my undereye concealer with powder and I notice no smudges or raccoon eyes.

I knocked a lippie off because …

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Expert Face Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

Constantly repurchasing makeup sponges was irritating to me, even the cheaper versions plus they were cumbersome to travel with. I've been going back and reaching for this brush more and more lately and I've fallen back in love with it. It's dense enough to quickly apply my foundation and it doesn't absorb a lot of product. I find I can use this 3-5 times to apply my …Read more

Makeup Brushes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Flawless Concealer Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

This has become an absolute must have in my brush collection, I've never had a concealer brush that works as well as this one. It's about the size of a large eyeshadow brush that's dense and fluffy that perfectly works concealer into the skin and actually adds more coverage. I prefer tapping this brush into the spot I want to cover because it doesn't move any product …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Oil Free

5.0

3 months ago

This has become one of my most reached for foundations especially in the summer. It's lightweight and seems to give that natural glow rather than an obvious makeup look. I find that it lasts the majority of the day (8 hours give or take) and fades gracefully on my oily skin. I apply using a damp makeup sponge to get sheer coverage that evens out my skin tone, but if you used your hands or a …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Joe Fresh Style - Egg Shaped Blending Sponge

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

This is an incredible dupe for a Beauty Blender sponge. It has the exact same egg shape and performance for over half the price at $5 CAD compared to $26 CAD, and now I no longer have to feel guilty following the recommended 3 month replacement rule. I like to keep at least 1-2 as a backup because my local Superstore doesn't always have these in stock.

Eyeliner - Marc Jacobs - Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner

4.0

6 months ago

I have this in Earthquake which is the dark brown shade. While the product is decent it's not any better than most drugstore gel liners like ones from Essence or Nyx. The tip doesn't have anyway to sharpen so if you like a thin line you shouldn't get this, or if you like to do a wing but it lasts most of the day without much fading and the pigmentation is rich and opaque. I've …Read more

Bronzers - benefit Cosmetics - Hoola Cream-to-Powder Quickie Contour Stick

4.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

I received a deluxe sample of this as part of a Benefit holiday package, and I was surprised at how much I like it. I'm NW15 and the original Hoola is too dark and warm for me, but after I blend the stick version out it really does look like a natural contour. My preferred method of application is to rub the product on to my fingers to warm up then apply to my face. I find that if I use the …Read more

Palettes - Too Faced - Natural Matte Neutral Eyeshadow Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

I'm reviewing the newest version of the palette, and I didn't use the older version so I'm unable to compare.

I picked this up a month ago, and I've used it everyday since. I find the shades to have varied levels of intensity, but they're all buildable and I love how the darkest shades are less pigmented as I don't have to be very careful when I'm …

Eye Shadow - REVLON - ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow

4.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

I have this in 715 Espresso, which is a medium taupe with slight shimmer. This is my favorite everyday no fuss product because I just use my finger to apply and it stays on all day with no creasing or fallout. It does apply a bit sheer, but it's buildable and I like to swipe one layer over my lid and lower lash line then pack on one or two more in my outer corner. This shade is nowhere near …Read more
