Concealers - Hourglass Cosmetics - Veil™ Retouching Fluid

2.0

9 months ago

Let’s put this simple. This is basically a very (very) low coverage concealer. The quantity is also very small, it’s almost half of what you get in the Nars Radiant creamy concealer, but more expensive than the Nars. It’s more than twice as expensive per ml than the Nars. So, if your base or concealer has faded during the day, you can add this very thin concealer on top and blend and it will help …Read more

Highlighters - Ciaté London - Dewy Stix - Luminous Highlighting Balm

3.0

Oct/01/2017

Dude, this stuff is a light weight solid oil. No kidding. If you want to see how it would look on you, put some moisturizing lip balm on your cheekbones and you've got it. I wore it one day to work, on my cheekbones and on top of the fact that I looked purely oily, not dewy, it drove me crazy, because my long hair kept getting stuck on my cheeks, like I was wearing lip gloss on them. I found …Read more

Highlighters - Glossier - Haloscope Highlighter (ALL COLORS)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/01/2017

Love the haloscope! My favorite highlighter ever! My second favorite is the RMS LL and then the Becca liquid highlighters. Basically, my criteria is, it has to have translucency, so you can see the skin through it. The shimmer has to be invisible to the naked eye, it has to be dewy, but not full on greasy (Ciate dewy stick, looking at you). You basically should look healthy and moisturized. The …Read more

Blush - Glossier - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

Glossier is a master at anti-marketing. Instead of the over-glamorized marketing the other brads do, they went the opposite way of super simple, sheer, natural fashion girl makeup. I, like many, was also very attracted by their approach. So, these are nice blushes. Incredible natural texture, neither matte, nor glowy. They can get a bit patchy, depending on your base. I don't wear foundation …Read more

Cleansers - Garnier - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

5.0

Feb/15/2017

I love this. I used to use the pink Bioderma one and that's also ok, but with the Bioderma, if I didn't double cleanse and wash after removing my makeup with it, I would break out a little. With the Garnier, it doesn't happen. I still double cleanse most of the time, but if I'm super tired, with the Garnier I can skip washing my face from time to time and it's all good.

Toners - Biologique Recherche - Exfoliating Lotion P50

Feb/13/2017

So, maybe I should have waited a bit more to write this review, since I have only used this two times. But thing is, I don't think I'll be using this again! I don't have acne, never had, just the ocasional hormonal breakouts. I never wear foundation or TM. I don't have particularly sensitive skin and I have used acids like AHA's and BHA's, as well as retin A for …Read more

Highlighters - rms beauty - Master mixer

Feb/03/2017

I really like the Master Mixer. I am NC20 and I have the Living Luminizer and love it. If you're around my skin tone and you're afraid it might be too light, don't be. It's light indeed, but because it's translucent, it translates into a slightly gold, brightening gorgeous Illuminator. Back to the Master Mixer. Since I love the LL so much, I thought to give the MM a …Read more

Concealers - IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer

Feb/03/2017

I have no idea why I didn't check the MakeupAlley before buying this concealer, normally I always read the reviews. So, I'm in my mid 30's, i have visible, but not super bad dark circles. I have some fine lines under my eyes (not in the corner of the eye though) and overall dry skin under my eyes. I am NC20 and got this in the second lightest color, the one they say fits most skin …Read more

Concealers - BECCA - Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/12/2017

First, don't expect coverage, this is minimal coverage, definitely not medium. If you have pronounced dark circles, you can buy this to highlight, it will not conceal much. Don't even think of concealing blemishes with this. I get the point of this concealer. A dewy, natural concealer that makes you look rested and fresh and like you're not wearing makeup. For me, this concealer is …Read more
